Oprah Winfrey admitted she was nervous as she approached the Telluride home of renowned sofa jumper and Scientologist Tom Cruise to begin the first of a two-part interview.

Of course, Oprah attributed it to the fact that it had been 2 ½ years since Tom proclaimed his love for Katie Holmes by jumping up and down on a sofa – something that ignited the fuse under a gazillion jokes.

"I just felt that way and I still feel that way," Tom grinned sheepishly.

"But then again I’m a guy who dances in my underwear and you were just egging me on."

Didn’t take much, Tom.
