Cruise proposes on Portuguese television
Tal e Qual newspaper reported that Joao Martins filmed the Hollywood star while covering The Last Samurai's Spanish premiere.
"Sonia, you have to marry Joao. Please marry Joao. He is crying behind the camera," Mr Cruise said in the clip, shown on state channel RTP later that day.
Mr Martins', who works for Portugal's RTP station, was on the phone to his girlfriend when the marriage proposal was aired. His girlfriend immediately agreed to the request and the couple plan to wed later in the year.
The cameraman said he was amazed when Cruise agreed to his request to deliver the proposal.
"All my girlfriend asked for was that I get his autograph," he said.
The Mission Impossible star has become well known for mingling with his fans at premieres around the world, taking time to sign autographs and chat on their mobile phones.
He even spent over two hours in cold British weather talking to fans and posing for photographs during his trip to London early in January.
