Cruise's former onscreen girlfriend Lea Thompson recently revealed that when the pair were filming 1983's All the Right Moves, Cruise shut down one of the topless scenes Thompson was supposed to do.

“[The producers] wanted me to show my breasts twice in the script,” she told Closer Weekly .

“I didn’t even audition because I didn’t want to take my shirt off, but I got the part and was like, ‘Okay.’" One of those scenes never happened, though, thanks to Cruise.

"Tom managed to talk them out of one of the [nude] scenes.".

What's more is, when Thompson went topless for the other scene that didn't get cut, Cruise offered to bare himself in solidarity.

"In the second, he said, ‘Well, if she has to be naked, I’ll be naked, too,’" she said, adding, "That’s pretty badass!

With the impending arrival of Cruise's Top Gun: Maverick , it will be interesting to see how that figures into the film. »
