Cher comes clean on steamy Tom Cruise affair, says he's one of her "all-time top five lovers"
72-year-old Cher said she and Tom Cruise were invited to the White House to attend an event about dyslexia before they embarked on a passionate love affair
There have been innumerable rumors surrounding the romance between Cher and Tom Cruise. The 72-year-old singer has now confirmed that she did enjoy a fling with the Hollywood actor and said that sparks flew when they first met in 1985 as they were approaching the peak of their stardom.
Following their first encounter, Cher and Cruise embarked on a passionate love affair especially after both connected over their experience with dyslexia.
"A bunch of people who were dyslexic were invited to the White House, and Tom and I are both dyslexic," she told Event magazine. "We didn't go out till way later, but there definitely was a connection there.''
She added that she considers him among her all-time top five lovers but refused to divulge any more details.
Even though Cruise made a lasting impression on her, he's not the only ex-partner she still feels fondly about. Speaking on James Corden's chat show, she shared a number of positive opinions about her former flames.
Specifically speaking about Val Kilmer, she said: ''When we kissed, I thought my head would shoot right off my body'', while she called Rob Camilletti, a pastry chef 18 years her junior, ''possibly the one true love of my life''.
When asked if she has a boyfriend, the veteran performer replied: "Not... not this week. I'm still on the lookout."
"The problem I have with all the boyfriends lately is that I don't want to go any place with them because you can't keep a relationship going in this kind of goldfish bowl, where everything you do and every picture you have taken will be on Instagram," she explained.
"There's no way to keep something special."
