Viral footage shows an awkward interaction between the two, where Kate seems uncomfortable with Tom’s presence.
Tom Cruise has been a Hollywood heartthrob for decades, but that doesn’t mean everyone is excited to meet him. Footage of the actor interacting with Kate Middleton and Prince William has gone viral, as the duchess seemed uncomfortable during the encounter.
Princess Kate Seemed Uncomfortable By Tom’s Chivalrous Gesture
The interaction unfolded at a 2022 movie premiere, where Tom Cruise and the royal couple graced the red carpet together. As Kate ascended the stairs, she anticipated potential difficulties with her monochrome Roland Mouret gown and graciously accepted Cruise’s offer to assist her.
However, keen-eyed fans observed that she later shifted her clutch to her hand, which she extended to Tom, preventing him from making a similar gesture as she approached a second flight of stairs.
A video clip of this moment, captioned “Tom Cruise smitten with Princess Catherine,’” garnered numerous comments, with many pointing out the somewhat awkward interaction. “Must have been awkward for him, but he was just being a gentleman,” one person wrote.
However, not everyone was so convinced his behavior was chivalrous. “I wouldn’t want Tom Cruise touching me either!” a different person wrote.

Tom Cruise Has A Controversial Reputation That Makes Some Uneasy
Nowadays, Tom keeps his personal life largely under wraps, especially following his two high profile divorces from Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman. However, that hasn’t stopped various theories and rumors to circulate about the action star, leading to a controversial reputation.
One shocking allegation made by Tom’s former co-star. In his recently published memoir, titled “Revenge of the Nerd,” Curtis Armstrong candidly shared his experiences of collaborating with Tom Cruise on the 1983 film “Risky Business.”
While Curtis noted Tom’s serious and disciplined approach to his work on set, their collaboration became intricate due to Tom’s personal life, particularly his romantic involvements during filming.
Tom’s former co-star recounted an affair between Tom and their fellow co-star, Rebecca De Mornay, which added complexity to the situation. However, one of the most intriguing claims made by Curtis was the assertion that Tom used his religious practices as a cover for his actual activities.
Curtis alleged that Tom would assert that he was hosting Bible study sessions in his room, but the presence of young women coming and going raised suspicions. Curtis seemed to suggest that Tom may have been using his religious pursuits to conceal his romantic involvements with women.
“They just stared at me, and at that moment, Tom’s door opened and another girl came out, adjusting her hair and taking off down the hall, while the first girl in line slipped into Tom’s room,” he explained in the memoir,” he wrote in his memoir.
More recently, there have been allegations that Tom is leaving the Church of Scientology, after being one of its most high-profile members for decades. The religion is reportedly the reason he hasn’t had contact with his youngest daughter, Suri, 18, in years, and contributed to his divorce from her mother, Katie Holmes.
Tom’s two eldest children, Isabella and Connor, whom he adopted with Kidman, remain active members of the church, to public knowledge.
