Rating: FrioTom Cruise
suffered another red-faced TV appearance on Friday night (Jan 23, '09) - after he was forced to sing and was quizzed about his flatulence habits by controversial British host Jonathan Ross
Cruise appeared on Ross' comeback talkshow - which returned to British screens after a three month hiatus. Ross was suspended by bosses at the BBC
after he and Russell Brand
were slammed for leaving "grossly offensive" voicemail messages on Andrew Sachs
' answer machine during a live radio broadcast in October ('08).
Tom Cruise - who is in Britain promoting his latest film Valkyrie
- was roped in to appear on the show in a bid to entice viewers to tune in. However Cruise was left squirming in his seat as he admitted he would love to appear in a big screen musical - and Ross ordered him to showcase his vocal talents.
An embarrassed Cruise muttered an expletive before belting out a line from Elvis Presley
's hit Hound Dog
and then jokingly pretending to make his exit from the show. The awkward demands didn't stop there - Ross went on ask a stunned Cruise if he passed wind while sharing a bed with wife Katie Holmes.
It's not the first time Cruise has performed an Elvis Presley tune on a top-rated talkshow - he left The Tonight Show's Jay Leno
speechless after breaking into a rendition of The King's hit Blue Suede Shoes
in December ( '08).
