Can I just be the first to say that I don't particularly care for illustrious Tom Cruise? I really just thought it best to throw that out there before we get into this tale of blowjobs galore. That way, you understand why my tone is so snarky. it's all about communication, people. Remember that.
Additionally, while I have worn the traditional Risky Business garb (men's dress shirt, briefs, high socks, and wayfarers) plenty of time in my high school and college partying days, I have never seen the movie. I know, I know, it's a classic. Spare me the melodrama, will ya please?
Anyway, back to the matter at hand—Tom Cruise, a Hollywood movie set and a whole lot of fellatio. Tom's former costar, Curtis Armstrong, who you may recognize form films like Revenge of The Nerds and Moonlighting has written a highly anticipated tell-all memoir, cleverly titled, Revenge of the Nerd. In it, Armstrong reveals what it was like to play alongside Cruise, as well as some "after work* escapades.
In an exclusive excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter—
Away from the set, initially, Tom made straight arrows look like corkscrews. I would ask him at the end of the day if he would like to join us at the bar for a drink. "No," I recall him saying, "Got an early call tomorrow. Got to work out still, study my lines. And then I like to read the Bible a little before bed."
I laughed. He didn't. "Ah," I said, cutting off the laugh at the pass and nodding wisely. "A little bit of the Good Book before bedtime, eh?"
"Yeah," he said. "Just a little at night. Keeps me on the right track, you know?"
But then, returning late one night, I found three or four young girls — late teens, I suspect — lined up in the hall outside of Tom's room. I remember thinking, "Tom's going to be really upset if these hot girls interfere with his Bible reading." So I asked them, with all the stern gravitas of my 28 years, if there was something I could do to help them.
They just stared at me, and at that moment, Tom's door opened and another girl came out, adjusting her hair and taking off down the hall, while the first girl in line slipped into Tom's room. This was a young man who knew something about time management and understood how to successfully juggle Bible study and blow jobs. I went to bed alone that night thinking it served me right for not being religious.
