Cher: Tom Cruise Was One of My Top Five Lovers of All Time


Tom Cruise hasn't yet won an Oscar, but he gets high marks from an Oscar-winner ex: Cher! The "Woman's World" singer, 67, shot the breeze with Andy Cohen on the Thursday, June 27 episode of Watch What Happens Live, and briefly looked back on her early 80s romance with Cruise, nearly 51.

"Awww," Cher cooed when asked about Cruise, whom she dated in the very early days of his Hollywood career. "He wasn't a Scientologist then," she quipped of the actor, who went on to marry and divorce three times. "It was pretty hot and heavy for a little minute. He's a great guy. The person that I knew was a great and lovable guy."

A bit later, Cohen asked where the Top Gun star landed on her list of all-time greatest lovers. "He was in the top five!" she gushed. "I just had the greatest lovers ever," she said, later revealing that she's also slept with women. ("Oh, god, who hasn't?" she quipped.)

The Moonstruck star had previously opened up about the Cruise romance, telling Oprah Winfrey back in 2008 "I was crazy about him," and that it could have been a "great big romance" if their filming schedules hadn't torn them apart.
