  • Bronson Pinchot is best known for his role on Perfect Strangers, but he was also in Risky Business. He says: "We didn't know it was going to be a big hit. We thought Tom [Cruise] was the biggest bore on the face of the Earth ... He called us all by our character names. He was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, 'You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?' I mean, his lingo was larded with the most… 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. Years and years later when people started to torment him with that, I used to think 'God, that's really fitting, because he tormented a lot of people as a 20-year-old.' He made such a big deal about it." [A.V. Club]
