Tom Cruise had girls lined up to give him sexual favors on the set of 1983 movie Risky Business, his co-star Curtis Armstrong has claimed.
The 63-year-old actor, who played Miles Dalby in the romantic comedy, has penned a new book entitled Revenge of the Nerd, in which he details his time working with Tom on the cult classic.
In an excerpt of the book, published by The Hollywood Reporter, Armstrong claims that one night, Cruise turned down the chance to join his co-stars on a night out, so he could prepare for next day’s shoot and also do some Bible study.
“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,” Armstrong writes. “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.”
Armstrong adds: “This was a young man who knew something about time management and understood how to successfully juggle Bible study and b**wjobs. I went to bed alone that night thinking it served me right for not being religious.”
Cruise’s representatives have yet to respond to Armstrong’s allegations.
Cruise starred as 19-year-old Joel Goodson in the film, who is left home alone by his parents when they go on holiday. Enjoying his new-found freedom, Joel takes things to the extreme as he welcomes a prostitute into his home and crashes his father’s Porsche into Lake Michigan.
One particular scene in the movie has gone down in cinematic history, with Cruise recently revealing that the dance moves he showed off in the film, when he wears just a shirt, underpants, socks and sunglasses, was completely improvised.
The movie, which was made on a budget of $6.2 million (£4.8 million), earned $63.5 million (£49.9 million) at the worldwide box office.
