Now seriously, are you gay or not?' I almost fainted
Cuba Gooding, JR. banned his father from the set of Jerry Maguire after he demanded to know if Tom Cruise was gay.
The actor invited his singer dad to watch a shoot for the 1996 movie but was left mortified when he gave Cruise a bear hug and quizzed him on untrue rumors about his sexuality.
Gooding, Jr. tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, "He gave Tom a hug and said, 'I love you man. Now seriously, are you gay or not?' I almost fainted. And thought, please Lord let me disappear. Tom just laughed and said 'no'".
