Three years after Cruise and Lauer’s infamous interview on “Today,” where the actor called the host “glib” while discussing his views on psychiatric medicine and Scientology, Cruise hit the Friar’s Club for a little roast revenge.

According to Access Hollywood’s Nancy O’Dell, who was inside the roast, following a taped message from Ryan Seacrest, Cruise was introduced, walked out and hugged Lauer on stage.
“Lose my number, you glib putz,” Cruise said as his parting words to Lauer. “Cruise, out!”
Not to be outdone, the roastee got in a jab of his own.
“Tom, can you stay? We can get a booster seat,” Lauer laughed.
The roast was hosted by Lauer’s “Today” show colleague, Al Roker.
