David Letterman Contemplates Tom Cruise’s Absence from Oscars

Letterman inquired Jimmy Kimmel regarding Cruise’s choice to avoid the event.

At the recent 2023 Academy Awards, the blockbuster movie Top Gun: Maverick received nominations in six categories, with possibilities for accolades for its lead, renowned actor Tom Cruise. Despite these notable recognitions, Cruise himself was notably absent from the ceremony, sparking curiosity about his whereabouts. During a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, TV host David Letterman probed Kimmel, who emceed the Oscars this year, for details.

var pref_connatix_event_title_prefix = ‘ConnatixLarge’; var prefMainPlayer=pref_connatix_event_title_prefix; var pref_connatix_catapultx_id = ‘tdw-main-player’;

!function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=””,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

cnxps.cmd.push(function () {
playerId: getUrsCtxStoryPlayer() ,”customParam1″:getUrsPI(),”customParam2″:getUrsSTI(),”customParam3″:”ConnatixMain”,settings: {queryJsTargeting:{apsTargetingKey:getUrsTI().split(‘_’).slice(0,1).join(‘_’).toLowerCase()},advertising: {macros: {“CustomMacro1″:getUrsPI(),”CustomMacro2″:getUrsSTI(),”CustomMacro3″:”ConnatixMain”}}}

“This is a delicate matter: Tom Cruise,” Letterman pondered. “Where was Tom Cruise?”

“We are unaware of Tom Cruise’s location,” Kimmel responded. “We heard about production complications.”

“What’s the meaning of that?” Letterman inquired. “That’s absurd.”

“Exactly. It’s very vague,” Kimmel stated. “However, the specifics remain a mystery.”

“It appears he should have attended, but he was noticeably absent,” Kimmel remarked. “Possibly he felt uncertain about winning and thus chose to refrain.”

“But honestly, he ought to have been present, shouldn’t he?” Letterman posed.

“Absolutely,” Kimmel affirmed. “He’s the Hollywood icon.”

“It reflects on your achievements as well,” Letterman interjected. “Even without Mr. Big Shot’s presence, the event was still highly successful. Well done, Jimmy.”
