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!
