Tom Cruise apparently didn’t know internet porn existed until Seth Rogen told him about it

Tom Cruise is an enigma

From the couch jumping on Oprah to Scientology to insisting on always doing his own stunts, in is clear that Tom Cruise is a very interesting character. He is one of the last true movie stars, yet unlike the likes of Chris Evans or The Rock, who seem like really cool guys to hang out with, it is virtually impossible to decipher what he is like as a real person.

And here’s another story of that, which comes courtesy of comedy figurehead and Knocked Up director Judd Apatow.

He was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and he told the strange story of an interaction between him, Cruise, and Apatow’s frequent collaborator Seth Rogen.

Apatow had a meeting Cruise for a potential project, and he brought Rogen along with him. Then things got weird.

As Apatow explained:

“I said to Seth Rogen, 'I have a meeting with Tom Cruise. You have to come with me.


“And no one knew who Seth was. He wasn't famous so he was just a dude with me and so I said, 'Someone needs to witness this.' So we're talking to him, and I don't know how it came up, but it usually comes up with Seth where he's talking about marijuana and pornography.

“And he starts talking about watching adult films on the Internet and Tom Cruise goes, 'What? Wait, you're saying there's adult films on the Internet?'”

Yes, Tom, there is.

“Seth's like, 'Yeah, there's all these movies on these websites’.

“And Tom Cruise's like, 'Wait a second. You're saying if I go on the computer, on the world wide web, there are people having sex?'

"Seth goes, 'Yeah, I watch it all the time. It's great. Everybody does it. It's not a big deal anymore'. So anyway no movie was made.”
