Cher recently opened up to Oprah about her fling with a young Tom Cruise. And if you’re thinking that she looks like a sad, goth Big Bird in this fantastic photo from the 80s, it might have something to do with the fact that Cher felt like the two of them missed out on a really life-altering love because of their conflicting movie schedules. The general understanding is that they dated for several months.
“It could have been a great big romance because I was crazy for him,” Cher told Oprah, in an episode of her show that is set to air next month. Aww, just think of all the fun costumes of Cher’s that Tom could have had a chance to play in. So sad.
