WATCH: Matt Lauer Asks Katie Holmes About His Awkward Interview With Tom Cruise
“Can I just say before we do this, I like Tom Cruise. We have a good relationship, we have a good friendship. It was just one little moment,” Lauer prefaced the sketch, before slipping on a floppy brunette wig to play Cruise.
“Yes, and I’d like to relive that moment!” Cohen quipped.
Lauer still gave the performance his all, reading a partial script of the televised interview, even saying, “You are extremely handsome!” and “You are a great interviewer, you are a fantastic interviewer.”
