Bronson Pinchot Calls Tom Cruise 'Homophobic'

From the trying-to-stay-relevant file, Perfect Strangers star Bronson Pinchot went on a rant about some of the biggest movie stars he worked with in Hollywood.

In an interview with the A.V. Club, Pinchot accused Tom Cruise of being homophobic, Eddie Murphy of being very low-spirited, Denzel Washington of being unpleasant and Bette Midler of being rude towards First Wives Club director Hugh Wilson.

One of the few actors who got a compliment from the 50-year-old was Tom Hanks, who Pinchot described as "a wonderful and genuine and lovely and down-to-earth person."

Pinchot wasn't so kind about Tom Cruise, whom he met while filming the 1983 hit Risky Business. "He was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, 'You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?' Pinchot said. '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."

A representative from Cruise's camp responded to Pinchot's comments, telling, "Obviously, this is so far removed from who Tom Cruise is as a person, this must have been said in jest."

So, what exactly is Balki’s agenda?

There have been no comments from reps of Washington, Midler or Murphy regarding Pinchot's statements.

Do you think Pinchot’s comments were a failed attempt at staying in the spotlight? Chime in below!
