It was almost fifteen years ago, but Seth Rogen remembers it like it was yesterday.
Tom Cruise had invited him to come and meet him at his home with producer Judd Apatow to talk about film projects.
It was in the mid-2000s, at the height of Tom Cruise's popularity, shortly after the birth of Suri, the daughter he shares with Katie Holmes.
“It was a very strange time.
He had had his baby and no one had seen him and there was speculation around the existence of the child, ”he recalled in an interview with Howard Stern.
But what really made Seth Rogen uncomfortable was when, after a few hours of conversations, Tom Cruise began to talk about Scientology, of which he is the most famous member.
“He said, 'I think the pharmaceutical industry is portraying me badly,'” continued Seth Rogen, stressing the strangeness of the remark.
"And he said, 'It's like with Scientology, if you just let me tell you what it really is ... just give me twenty minutes to really tell you what it is, and you're not gonna. not believe your ears ".
And fortunately for Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow quickly defused the discomfort by inviting everyone to change the subject.
A very curious episode which is reminiscent of Kyra Sedgwick's incredible experience during an evening spent at Tom Cruise's that you can find here.
