Tina Turner had a double thrill at Oprah Winfrey's LEGENDS BALL earlier this month (MAY05) when she met Tom Cruise.

The retired pop superstar was being honoured at the Santa Barbara, California gala, and was so thrilled when she spotted special guest Cruise and his new girlfriend Katie Holmes, she had a waiter take a rose to his table.

Cruise recalls, "He said, 'Listen, because she's being honoured as a legend tonight she can't come over to the table, so would please come over and say hello,' which was beautiful."

Turner later shared her Cruise moment with her host.

Winfrey adds, "She said, 'I met Tom Cruise tonight. He's so good looking.'"
