Kyra Sedgwick appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show on Wednesday, April 14, where she told a story about going to dinner at Tom Cruise’s house back in the 90s to watch a screening of A Few Good Men.
She attended, along with her husband Kevin Bacon, and they were joined by A Few Good Men co-stars Demi Moore and her then-husband Bruce Willis, as well as director Rob Reiner and Tom’s then-wife Nicole Kidman.
Kyra told Barrymore, “I was pregnant, I was very pregnant… We got invited over for dinner with lots of famous people.”
She continued, “It was one of those nights that I often don’t get invited to. And so, there was this like fireplace mantle, and I was looking around and there was this little button underneath the mantle. I was like, ‘Oh, what is that little button?’ So I pressed the little button, because I thought maybe something interesting will happen.”
Drew guessed, “Like the wall will turn around.”
“Yeah, exactly. Nothing happened. And then I got a little nervous,” Kyra explained. “I was like, ‘Oh, nothing happened, that doesn’t seem right.'”
“So I tapped Tom on the shoulder, who was in the middle of a story, and I said, ‘I pressed this button down here.’ And he was like, ‘You pressed that button?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I pressed that button.’ And he goes, ‘That’s the panic button,'” Kyra told Drew.
She said the cops actually came to his house, and they had to stop the movie screening!
“It was something. I didn’t get invited back.”
