Re: Tom Cruise being eager to testify
that he is not gay, in response to a porn performer's
statement that Cruise's marriage broke up because of an
affair with him: To paraphrase a line by Shakespeare:
The gentleman complains too much, me thinks, me thinks."
The last time such a cataclysmic event occurred was when, in the
1950's Liberace sued about a similar charge. He swore he
wasn't gay--and won. That, of course, did not alter the fact
that he was quite actively gay. I can't
remember more media space given over to denials about being gay than
those concerning Mr. Cruise. Some advice: Just keep
quiet about the matter; that would be the elegant approach--and it
would do more than anything to uphold that he is indeed heterosexual."
