And finally the interview at 7:39. Cruise said he came off as “arrogant” during his last appearance 3 1/2 years ago. He called Lauer “glib” during an intense discussion about psychiatry and antidepressants.

“I’m here to entertain people,” Cruise said today. “That’s who I am and what I want to do.”
