Tom Cruise, totally not gay
In an interview, surprisingly not foriegn, Bronson Pinchot, of Perfect Strangers fame, told some very candid stories of working with some of hollywood's elite. He goes on talk about what an asshole Denzel Washinton is, but the highlight of interview is his memories of working with Tom Cruise on Risky Business.
On Risky Business:
We thought Tom [Cruise] was the biggest bore on the face of the Earth. He had spent some formative time with Sean Penn—we were all very young at the time, Tom was 20, I was 23. Tom had picked up this knack of calling everyone by their character names, because that would probably make your performance better, and I don’t agree with that. I think that acting is acting, and the rest of the time, you should be you, but he called us all by our character names. He was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, “You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?” I mean, his lingo was larded with the most… There was no basis for it. It was like, “It’s a nice day, I’m glad there are no gay people standing here.” Very, very strange.
Same thing with Eddie Murphy—I remember somebody calling and saying, “You’ll never guess who was just caught with a transvestite!” [Laughs.]

I'm not going to lie, I laugh everytime I read or think about, "It’s a nice day, I’m glad there are no gay people standing here." Cruise's repressed sexual desires and frustration must be so high. I can only assume he is like a good vampire, trying his best to live on animal blood and not killing humans. Then every so often breaks down and kills like 70 humans in an orgy of blood and carnage. Except replace humans with dudes, and blood and carnage with seman and leather. Also there is no way he doesn't kill and dispose of every male hooker he uses. No chance he is going to take a chance on some queen singing to the press.
