The former View co-host admitted in a new interview that she is concerned about his involvement in Scientology. While responding to a question from a caller who asked if she thinks the actor had changed because of his beliefs on Andy Cohen's Radio Andy SiriusXM show, she said:

Since seeing all the documentaries, it does make me worry about him and his life, and think of, you know, how protected he is from the facts of that. Which I don’t know how you could be.

During the interview, Rosie further said Tom’s religion is not something she has ever discussed with him.

She said.

He’s never brought it up to me, we’ve never spoken about it, he keeps it very private. It’s not like he tries to convert people.

She once had a crush on Tom Cruise

But later on as a guest on the Rachael Ray show, Rosie said she no longer has a crush on the Mission Impossible star. Rosie told Rachael that Tom knows and sent him an e-mail saying: ‘Sorry it’s happened, I didn’t think it would.’ Send.”

Rosie seems like a great friend to Tom Cruise.
