Channel Seven’s David ‘Kochie’ Koch has shared details about his one-on-one encounters with Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise.

The 66-year-old breakfast host made the remarks during an interview with Andrew Bucklow on the I’ve Got News for You podcast.

The TV veteran ranked Cruise with Tom Hanks, Julie Andrews, Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana and Keith Urban as amongst his favourite guest star interviews.

Cruise made world head lines after announcing on Sunrise during an interview with Koch and then co-host Sam Armytage that his 1986 hit Top Gun would have a sequel.

Four years in the making Top Gun: Maverick was made at a cost of US $152 million, with Tom repeating his role of Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell from the first film, and is now playing around Australia.

Koch said that Cruise, 59, while sitting for an interview was always ‘incredibly polite’, and gave his time to the camera team and everyone else on the set.

Calling the actor, ‘charming’, Koch added during his interview, ‘He is the politest bloke I’ve ever met.’

Koch did not name names, but compared Cruise favourably to other, more demanding, famous guests he has interviewed.

He says, these celebrity’s can be a ‘pain’, because they want to change the seating, ‘to get their good side.’

Some stars Koch has interviewed can be aloof or snooty, but not Cruise.

‘He’s always on point.’ Koch gushed. ‘He’s got lots of energy,’ he said during the podcast.

Koch revealed that Cruise is very fond of Australia and that the star, famous for doing his own stunts, first learned to fly a helicopter while shooting Mission: Impossible 2 in Sydney in 1999.

Cruise has attracted controversy with the press over the decades, mostly due to his  combative responses to questions about his relationships and involvement with Scientology.

In 2005 Cruise lashed out at Tom Overton during a 60 Minutes interview, after the journalist had asked him about co-parenting with Nicole Kidman.

Cruise and Kidman were married in 1990 and divorced in 2001 and share two adopted children, Isabella Jane, 30, and Connor Antony, 27.

Cruise told Overton the question was ‘stepping over the line.’
