The actress, Melissa Gilbert has revealed some very interesting facts about her co-stars. She spoke about how she had dated Tom Cruise in the good old times when he was still a struggling Hollywood actor. Also, Melissa mentioned two of her fellow female thespians in Little House on the Prairie whom she absolutely hated.
Melissa Gilbert made quite a few revelations to the press recently. She told the world about a date she had with the young and randy Tom Cruise. The lady mentioned the fact that he didn’t have the title “Cruise” way back then.
Instead he was named Tom Mapother. And while she dated him for a time and even engaged in a little hanky-panky, the two didn’t have any sex. He was a hard worker who was trying to get together his acting chops. She said that she even bought him a set of dinner plates.
Melissa was a child actor on the set of Little House on the Prairie. She had tiffs and creative differences with two co-stars during this period in her life. One was the star of Beverly Hills 90210, Shannen Doherty. And the other one was her namesake Melissa Sue Anderson.
Gilbert said that Shannen actually had the nerve to have a one-night stand with her husband Bo Brinkman. She wanted to punch this woman in the face if she ever met her.
And as for Sue Anderson, she blurted out a series of comments about her that were not very flattering. “Hateful, horrid, mean, terrible and difficult” were just some of the words Melissa used to describe her pet peeve person.
