Cruise Edits Himself Out Of Gay Bio

Legendarily straight Tom Cruise apparently can’t even handle being mentioned in a gay book! Former Village Person Randy Jones‘ new biography included an eighties-era anecdote involving him and Tom, but the actor’s people had it removed. How queer.

“Tom and I had the same management company at the time,” Jones told me at the new Bowery hot spot Antik. “I met him at a party Andy Warhol threw for Peter Gatien’s Limelight [nightclub offshoot] in Atlanta.”

To hear Jones tell the story, it was quite a party. But after calls went out to a spokeswoman and attorney for the Mission: Impossible star yesterday, the book’s editor assured me that Cruise’s name had been removed from the final version.

Great, now we’re forced to use our imagination!

      If it was the Limelight, then it was around the time Legend was released. I visualise Tom with the long hair he grew for the role. It was proabably his most buff phase. I can see him paying a midnight visit to one of the three bathhouses in Atlanta at the time lying on a cot face down with legs akimbo waiting for an agressive encounter.

      Tom Cruise is a flippin freak. All those 80s homos who propelled him into super stardom should be shot! Oh, that’s right – they are already dead. What is his fan base? I don’t get it.

      I agree, I’m done with Tom. I used to be so sure that he was gay, but now I just don’t care. If he is, he hates himself too much to be sexy any more.

      Who should we believe a Village Person or the Village Idiot? I’ll go with Randy.

      BTW – in case you haven’t heard – Mr. Cruise’s upcoming Nazi film has been pushed back again, this time to winter 2009.

      Todd, that was a pretty cold thing to say. I was an 80s homo and I’m not dead, yet. I’ve never paid to see a single Tom Cruise movie and don’t think I ever will; however, in 1982, Tom Cruise was actually pretty hot.
