How Tom Cruise Has Made Headlines Over the Course of His Long Career

"And no one knew who Seth was, he wasn’t famous, he was just a dude with me," Apatow tells Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show."

Judd Apatow can't confirm, but he suggested Tom Cruise didn't learn about internet porn until 2006, thanks to Seth Rogen.

The guy behind comedy hits "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Girls" told Stephen Colbert all about the one time he took a meeting with the "Mission: Impossible -- Fallout" star years ago in the middle of shooting "Knocked Up." At the time, Cruise was interested in doing a romantic comedy, and Apatow insisted Rogen go with him to Cruise's house.

"And no one knew who Seth was, he wasn’t famous, he was just a dude with me. So I said, someone needs to witness this. So we’re talking to him, and I don’t know how it came up, but it usually comes up with Seth, where he starts talking about marijuana and pornography," Apatow explained on "The Late Show" Monday night.

"And he starts talking about watching adult films on the internet, and Tom Cruise goes, 'What? Wait. You're saying there's adult films on the internet? And Seth's like, 'Yeah, there's all these movies on these websites.' And Tom Cruise is like, 'Wait a second. If I go on the computer, on the world wide web, there are people having sex?'"

"So anyway, no movie was made," Apatow added after doing a spot-on Rogen impression continuing to ramble on about porn.

"That's the movie I want to see. Tom Cruise discovering internet porn," Colbert Joked.

When Colbert asked Apatow if he thought Cruise was "telling the truth" about being oblivious to porn on the internet, the filmmaker admitted he's not sure.

"I don't think he was for it," Apatow said. "He was being very polite. I assume he was against it, and being polite. But who knows. We'll never know."
