We've all been at a dinner party in a house you've never been in before and wanted to take a look around. If the house you were in happened to be the house of Tom Cruise, then I think we would all absolutely need to look at everything. And so, one can perhaps forgive actress Kyra Sedgwick for accidentally calling the cops on a Tom Cruise dinner party because she wanted to see what a button was for.
Kyra Sedgwick recently appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show, where she recounted a story she's clearly told before. Apparently back in the early 1990s, when Tom Cruise and Sedgwick's husband Kevin Bacon were making the film A Few Good Men, the couple was invited to a dinner party at Cruise's house. While doing that sort of low level snooping that you do at dinner parties in unfamiliar houses, the actress found something interesting. As she put it,
At this point, Drew Barrymore suggests that perhaps pressing the button would have shifted a false wall and revealed some sort of hidden room. And to be sure, considering that this is Tom Cruise house that we're talking about, that isn't the craziest idea. Maybe Tom Cruise has a panic room in his house and this was the way in? Maybe he just has a secret entrance to his personal office, because let's face it, if I had the money, I would build a secret entrance to my personal office just for fun.
Unfortunately, the button did not reveal a secret laboratory where Tom Cruise attempted to create the elixir of life. In fact, initially, nothing happened. This caused even more concern, and caused Kyra Sedgwick to maybe do what she should have done first, and ask the host what was up with the button. The actress continued,
I mean. it makes sense that Tom Cruise would have a button that would call the cops. It's exactly what you would expect a A-list celebrity to have under his mantle just in case such a thing were ever needed. I guess Kyra Sedgewick and Kevin Bacon didn't have a panic button? Maybe they do now.
