The Tom Cruise Fan Oprah Will Never Forget
Season 5 Episode 513
Aired on 01/30/2016
During the course of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah gave the surprise of a lifetime to one Tom Cruise fan—twice!
The first time was in 2001, when Oprah Show producers showed up at superfan Nancy's front door. Cameras rolled as Nancy was told she was going to finally meet her celebrity crush. To pull it off, the surprise had to be done early—so early that Oprah wasn't even dressed yet!
The second surprise came seven years later. After days of plotting and planning, Oprah Show producers arrive at Nancy's office. "Please do not tell me that Oprah Winfrey is inside that camera again!" she says. "Is Tom Cruise here somewhere?"
As Nancy tries to get a hold of herself, Oprah reveals the big surprise. "Tom is coming back right here to this very studio, and he asked that I ask you to come back," Oprah says.
"You're kidding me," Nancy says. "He asked about me?"
Where is Nancy today, and is she still a huge Tom Cruise fan? Watch the above video to find out!
