Tom Cruise's Risky Business Porsche Up For Auction


Tom Cruise Risky Business

One of the three Porsches Tom Cruise drove in cult movie Risky Business is up for auction.

The 1979 sportscar is expected to fetch up to $60,000 (£37,300) at the Profiles in History Hollywood Treasure From the Vaults sale, which begins on 28 July (12), and auction house boss Joe Maddalena feels sure the movie motor will sail past the expected price - because of its history.

He tells Access Hollywood Live, "Tom Cruise learned to drive a stick in this car... and there's a rumour Sean Penn actually had snuck into one scene and he (Cruise) started the car and got ready to drive and Sean Penn stuck his hand in and turned the ignition off."

Maddalena reveals Porsche officials refused to let director Paul Brickman use their cars in the 1983 film and so he had to buy three used Porsches for the film.

Klum Dances To Cruise Tune In New Guitar Hero Ad


Heidi Klum Risky Business Brett Ratner Tom Cruise

Supermodel Heidi Klum has been indulging in a little Risky Business for moviemaker Brett Ratner - performing Tom Cruise's famous film moves for a new Guitar Hero: World Tour commercial.


Dressed in a shirt, underpants and white socks, Klum dances and plays air guitar to Bob Seger's Old Time Rock And Roll - just like Cruise did in his 1983 breakthrough movie role.


And she admits that dancing for ad director Ratner wasn't quite as easy as it appears - and left her with bruises and burns all over her legs.


Klum says, "He (Ratner) really wanted to have it exactly like Tom Cruise did this... It was harder than I thought it was gonna be."

Cruise's Musical Dream


Tom Cruise Moulin Rouge Chicago Risky Business

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise wants to follow in his ex-wife NICOLE KIDMAN's footsteps and make a musical.

Following the success of recent musical remakes Moulin Rouge! - which starred Kidman and EWAN McGREGOR - and Chicago, the MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE star is keen to make his own mark on the genre.

And Cruise insists he'd have no trouble mastering the singing and dancing routines required - because he still occasionally copies his dancing in his underwear moves from 1983 film Risky Business and calls it his "dance of freedom".

Jack Osbourne Snubbed By Denise Richards


Jack Osbourne Denise Richards Risky Business American Pie New York Minute

Reality TV star Jack Osbourne was looking forward to his debut as a movie protagonist - until leading lady Denise Richards pulled out of the project.

THE OSBOURNES star has decided to try his luck on the big screen after shooting to fame alongside his famous rock family, and remains philosophical about Richards' decision to leave the movie, even though she quit because of him.

He says, "I'm doing a movie. I play a kid who falls in love with a hooker. It's like Risky Business meets American Pie. The hooker was supposed to be Denise Richards, but she bailed when, well, when she found out she'd be starring with me."
