(Newser) – Tom Cruise and Matt Lauer met on Today for the first time since an infamously tense 2005 interview, and this time, things were more relaxed, People reports. The pair chatted about their previous meeting. "I came across as arrogant," Cruise said, adding, "that's not the person I am." They squabbled over Scientology and Cruise’s distaste for psychiatry. At the time, “a lot of stuff was going on,” Cruise said.
