Washington, Apr 28 : When he appears on the Oprah Winfrey show next month, Tom Cruise will be answering some tough questions including those about Scientology, his verbal battle with Matt Lauer and his infamous couch jumping incident.
The actor is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his breakthrough turn in 'Risky Business', and has agreed to a chat with Winfrey.
The interview will be in two parts - one where Oprah interviews Cruise from his Telluride, Colorado, home, and the second when the actor comes to her studio.
The first one, to be shown on May 2, has already been taped.
And, it was Oprah herself who let on to her audience at the Las Vegas taping of her joint interview with Tina Turner and Cher, what questions Cruise would answer, reveals a source.
"Oprah said Tom gave her a ride on a snowmobile. She also said that Katie and Suri were there for the interview, too," E! Online quoted the source, as saying.
Then on May 5, Cruise will return to Winfrey's Chicago studio.
The episode will also feature taped messages of congrats from some of the actor's superstar friends.
In 2005, Cruise made history when he jumped around the set, hopped onto a couch, fell to one knee and repeatedly professed his love for his new girlfriend Katie Holmes.
The incident became part of American pop-cultural discourse and was heavily parodied in media as diverse as 'Saturday Night Live', 'Hannah Montana' and the film 'Scary Movie 4'.
The "couch incident" was voted also voted the Number 1 of 2005's "Most Surprising Television Moments" on a countdown on E!.
