Tom Cruise Calls Matt Lauer "Glib," 2005

Lauer's June 23, 2005 sit-down with Tom Cruise started as a run-of-the-mill plug for the actor's latest movie but eventually evolved into a heated, adversarial debate over antidepressants and psychiatry. Tensions escalated quickly, culminating in a fired-up Cruise calling Lauer "glib" and admonishing him to "be a little more responsible" in his reporting. Lauer has said there was a "Cold War period" after that, but the two made nice in 2008 when Cruise apologized for seeming "arrogant."
