Kyra Sedgwick pushed Tom Cruise’s panic button in his house.
We can’t decide whether the fact is more intriguing. But Sedgwick’s yarn about a party at the matinée idol’s house does not disappoint in any way.

On “The Drew Barrymore Show” on Wednesday, the “Call Your Mother” star recounted being invited to Cruise’s home in the early 1990s. Kyra Sedgwick had worked with Cruise on “Born on the Fourth of July” while pregnant, and Bacon had worked with Cruise on “A Few Good Men.”
There were Bruce Willis and Demi Moore (both from “A Few Good Men”). “A Few Good Men” director Rob Reiner was there, as was Cruise’s then-wife, Nicole Kidman.
But something else caught Kyra Sedgwick’s attention.
“It was one of those nights that I often don’t get invited to, and so there was this, like, fireplace mantel and I was looking around and there was this little button underneath the mantel. A little button. I was like, ‘Oh, what is that little button?’” Kyra Sedgwick said. “So I pressed the little button because I just thought maybe something interesting will happen. Nothing happened and then I got a little nervous.”
“I was like, ‘Oh, nothing happened that doesn’t seem right,’” she continued. “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 was like, ‘Yeah, I pressed that button.’ And he goes, ‘That’s the panic button.’”
At least five police cars arrived, the movie was halted, the policemen spoke with the host, and Kyra Sedgwick’s entrance into Cruise’s orbit became impossible.
“I didn’t get invited back,” she said.
