Sedgwick Pushes Cruise's Panic Button
KYRA SEDGWICK made an alarming first impression on TOM CRUISE - the actress prompted police to interrupt a star-studded dinner at his home when she accidentally pressed the star's secret panic button.
The Closer star was invited to a small gathering at the movie star's Beverly Hills mansion, and decided to take a wander around the home after dinner.
But her snooping fun came to an end when she made the embarrassing mistake of pressing a random button she found in one room, because she was so curious about its purpose.
She explains, "I saw this little button and it wasn't attached to anything. It didn't have a sign or anything... and so I pressed it. I don't know why but I did, and nothing happened.
"I got scared. So I kind of raised my hand and I said, 'Excuse me... I just pressed that button!' And Tom said, 'That button?' I said, 'Yeah.' And he goes, 'Why?' And I said, 'I don't know!'
"Long story short, it was the panic button. Within 10 minutes the entire Beverly Hills police department was there, and they wouldn't leave until they actually saw Tom there."
