(ANI): Tom Cruise's representative has hit back at claims made by a
former castmate that the actor is a 'homophobic bore'. Actor
Bronson Pinchot criticised his Risky Business co-star in a
recent interview, alleging Cruise passed a string of anti-gay
remarks on the set of the 1983 film.
"He (Cruise) was the biggest bore on the face of the Earth," Contactmusic quoted Pinchot as saying. "He made constant, constant
unrelated homophobic comments... 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. "If someone's 20 years old and every
third line out of their mouth is anti-something specific, then draw
your own conclusion," he added.
But a publicist for the Hollywood heartthrob rushed to his
defence, insisting Pinchot fell short of understanding a joke. Rep
Cheryl Maisel told TV Guide magazine: "Obviously this is so far
removed from who Tom Cruise is as a person, this must have been
said in jest."
