It’s so rare that a celeb comes on a show with a story of being with other celebs that I actually think is pretty hilarious.
Kyra Sedgwick was on The Drew Barrymore show this week and shared about the time she and hubby Kevin Bacon were invited to Tom’s house for a viewing of his 1992 hit A Few Good Men. The couple was joined by co-star Demi Moore and her then-husband Bruce Willis, as well as director Rob Reiner and Tom’s then-wife Nicole Kidman.
Kyra said “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.”
As 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.'”
She then turned to Tom, who she knew as her co-star on the 1989 movie Born On The Fourth Of July, to try to solve the mystery of the unknown button.
“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.
According to her recollection, more than five police cars came. “It was something. I didn’t get invited back,” she shared.
That’s a legit party story. Like I’d be tellin that story to anyone that would listen.
