Washington, Oct 27 : Hollywood actor Tom Cruise is doing all that he can do to promote his upcoming flick "Valkyrie", for he has even gone to the length of mollifying Matt Lauer.
The 'vanilla Sky' actor is totally desperate to promote the flick so much that he made peace with Matt, with whom he had a bitter moment on NBC's "Today" about Scientology and the evils of psychiatry.
Tom made a rare appearance at Friday's Friars Club roast of the "Today" show's Matt Lauer, and declared that he and Matt were buddies.
"Believe it or not, Matt and I are friends," Fox News quoted Tom as telling the crowd, which included Lauer's "Today" show co-hosts as well as ABC's Diane Sawyer from competitor "Good Morning America".
Tom is on the hook for over 100million dollars with "Valkyrie," a movie in which he plays the real-life failed assassin of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany.
