Melissa Gilbert Admits Dating Tom Cruise Before He Was a Star

Melissa Gilbert

Actress Melissa Gilbert recently admitted her romance with popular actor Tom Cruise that transpired before he became a famous movie star.

The star of Little House on the Prairie was dating some pretty famous guys when she was younger, among them John Cusack, Scott Baio, Rob Lowe and rocker Billy Idol.

In 2010, Gilbert wrote an autobiography where she described most of her former relationships and lovers, but this is the first time she mentioned a romance with a young Cruise.

“It’s true. Actually when I dated him he was still Tom Mapother. It was when he first moved to LA and I think I was 16, maybe 17.”

“I didn’t have sex with him, we made out. But honestly there was no sex. He was a good kisser. But you know, he was a struggling, starving actor and I was working. I actually bought him his first set of dishes,” revealed Gilbert in an interview on the US chart show, Watch What Happens Live.

When it comes to her exes, she admitted that she only wouldn’t talk to Shannen Doherty if she ran into her on the streets, because Doherty had a one-night-stand with her first husband.
