Lansing Shocked By Cruise Presentation

Ex-Paramount Pictures head SHERRY LANSING was shocked when TOM CRUISE presented her with a humanitarian prize at the Academy Awards ceremony because they barely spoke just days earlier. The pair have worked together on film projects for years and Lansing was confused when Cruise seemed distant when they ran into each other just before the Oscars. Lansing received the Jean Hersholt Award for her humanitarian work and had no idea Cruise was presenting her with the honorary Oscar. She explains, "I had seen him at an Oscar party a few days before, and he was sort of cold to me. I was a little hurt. "But then he gave me the Oscar and he whispered, 'This is an honour, I really wanted to do this, you know how much I love you, and at the party I couldn't say anything!' "I really love him. I've known Tom since he was 19 years old. I almost started to cry!"
