Melissa Gilbert and Tom Cruise would seem like an unpromising couple. But, a blast from the past has revealed that it has already happened. If you missed out on this major Hollywood fling, the actress is here to narrate it openly.

The former Little House on the Prairie star penned an extremely personal autobiography in 2010. She mentioned most of her former relationships and lovers in it. But, this would be the first time, Melissa is speaking up about her romance with a young Cruise. She was about 16 or 17 then and The Mummy actor was still known as Tom Mapother.

An affair of the youth

While on Watch What Happens Live!, a caller made Melissa spill the beans. He asked if there's anything true about Gilbert once dating Tom Cruise. She readily admitted making out with him as a teenager and aiding his acting journey. She said:

We made out, but, honestly, there was no s**. He was a good kisser. But, you know, he was, like, a struggling, starving actor. I actually bought him his first set of dishes.

The 55-year-old previously chatted about it with Access Hollywood. She described him as a great guy who had a good sense of humor. He was also very generous and sweet to her. Unfortunately, there is that, nothing much.

Who did Melissa end up with?

She is currently married to actor Timothy Busfield. The two exchanged vows in a private ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, in 2013. They reside in New York now after moving from Michigan. Sounds like a happily ever after!

We can't exactly call Tom Cruise Melissa Gilbert's 'the one that got away'. What are the odds they even dated! Could you see them as a pair if their paths hadn't parted?
