Tom Cruise Shock: Mission Impossible Star's Dentures Fell During Dinner
According to Showtime docuseries Gossip, which featured Page Six and Cindy Adams, Col Allan, former Editor in Chief of the New York Post, made a bombshell revelation about Tom Cruise.
They met when Cruise was still dating Katie Holmes. At the time, she was developing a career on Broadway and he wanted to make sure that he stayed out of Page Six. Cruise reportedly asked for a dinner meeting where he and Allan could discuss the actor's "expectations."
They met at a spot called Circo on 54th street. They sat at a corner table and the Top Gun actor ordered a bottle of wine, and Allan was surprised because the members of Scientology do not normally drink.
According to Allan, they talked about their lives while drinking when Cruise's front teeth fell out of his mouth onto the tablecloth. The latter was shocked and taken aback after seeing Cruise with missing front teeth.
"The face that’s on posters all over the world, good looking guy, and there are his front teeth," Allan said as quoted by Radar Online before adding that the incident made him "speechless."
"Oh my god, have you seen my teeth?" Cruise asked.
Allan showed Cruise where on the table his dentures fell. And the Jack Reacher star shared the story of why he had to wear removable dentures.
