Video Of ‘Horr’ifying’ Tom Cruise Staring Down 60 Minutes Journalist Goes Viral

An interview in which Tom Cruise stared down journalist Peter Overton has again gone viral seventeen years after it first aired. Notably, it took place four years after the now 59-Year-Old actor separated from Nicole Kidman. The pair met in 1989 while filming his hit racing film Days of Thunder.

“Is Nicole the love of your life? Overton asked Cruise.

The actor, who instantly looked flustered, replied: “What do you mean, Peter? How do you answer that question?” Overton continued, asking what sort of relationship the former couple still had. Cruise lost his cool at this point, saying to the Nine Reporter, “You’re stepping over the line now. You’re stepping over the line, and you know you are.”

He then looked coolly at Overton, which prompted the journalist to say: “I suppose they’re questions people want to know.”

Cruse interrupted him, saying, “Peter. Peter. You want to know. Take responsibility for what you want to know. So, I’m just telling you right now, okay, just put your manners back in.” The clip, tweeted by @responsiblerob, concluded with an apology from Overton. So far, it’s been viewed over a 2.1million times, and users have branded Cruise’s reaction as ter’rifying.

Someone tweeted: “I cannot imagine having this man talk to me this way. He’s so scary. Another wrote: “He’s literally terrifying without screaming even once.”

56-Year-Old Overton has since spoken about the intimidating interview amid a 2020 interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show. When asked by Radio Host Sandilands what he was thinking back then when being rubbished on camera by Tom Cruise, he responded: “I just maintained who I am and I didn’t get angry. He did. And I just kept true to myself and said it’s a fair question. I hold no ill towards Tom. It was one of those moments.”
