So it wasn’t All The Right Nudes for a gallant Tom Cruise
TOM CRUISE saved a co-star from nude scenes she didn’t want to do — and even told movie bosses he, too, would go full frontal if she was forced to strip off.
Cruise, only 20 at the time, stepped in to bat for Lea Thompson during 1983’s All The Right Moves. Lea, 57, who went on to star in the Back To The Future trilogy, says: ‘[The producers] wanted me to show my breasts twice in the script. I didn’t want to take my shirt off, but I got the part and was like, “Okay”.
Explaining that Cruise, now 55, managed to talk movie chiefs out of one of the two nude scenes, she went on to say he didn’t stop there.
Tom told bosses that if Lea was made to do the other, he’d get his kit off, too. She added: ‘In the second, he said, “Well, if she has to be naked, I’ll be naked, too”. That’s pretty badass! I’ve always been grateful to him.’
