Tom Cruise Apparently Juggled ‘Bible Study And Blow Jobs’ Filming ‘Risky Business’

If “Risky Business” is about a loss of innocence (sexual or otherwise) among a group of college-bound teenagers, then Tom Cruise apparently went full-tilt method behind the scenes, according to an excerpt from a new memoir by co-star Curtis Armstrong.

He wasn’t sending the cast condoms or a live rat (for the last time, Jared Leto needs to chill). But despite his reputation as a straight-laced, Bible-reading and generally upstanding guy on set, Cruise was allegedly engaging in some extracurricular activities with a host of young women.

Armstrong, who plays Cruise’s character’s poker buddy, Miles Dalby, kept detailed notes about his experience working with the rising star while filming the comedy during the summer of 1982. 

Apparently, one night Cruise declined to go out drinking with Armstrong and other co-stars in order to prepare for the next day and bone up on the Bible. Armstrong describes the actor as a self-identified born-again Christian who “made straight arrows look like corkscrews.” That is, until he discovered what Cruise was actually up to during his nights alone. 

“Returning late one night, I found three or four young girls — late teens, I suspect — lined up in the hall outside of Tom’s room,” Armstrong writes in his memoir, Revenge of the Nerd. “I remember thinking, ‘Tom’s going to be really upset if these hot girls interfere with his Bible reading.’ So I asked them, with all the stern gravitas of my 28 years, if there was something I could do to help them.”

“They just stared at me, and at that moment, Tom’s door opened and another girl came out, adjusting her hair and taking off down the hall, while the first girl in line slipped into Tom’s room,” he continued. “This was a young man who knew something about time management and understood how to successfully juggle Bible study and blow jobs. I went to bed alone that night thinking it served me right for not being religious.”

Instead of the “Risky Business” reboot Hollywood is sure to screw up any day now, let’s just adapt this memoir for the screen right now, because nothing in the film could ever be, well, so risky. 

To read the full excerpt from Armstrong’s memoir, head over to The Hollywood Reporter

Al Gore on Why the U.S. Loses Jobs, Power (and Planet Earth) by Leaving the Paris Climate Agreement

President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement was more than “inconvenient” for the U.S. — it threatens jobs, our standing in the world — and most of all, our planet, says former Vice President Al Gore.

“This is as serious as it gets,” the longtime environmentalist tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

“What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true,” says Gore, who warned the world about the catastrophic effects of climate change in his 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. He is following up that documentary with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which premieres in August.

“What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don’t stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger,” says Gore, who met with President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, after the election to discuss climate change.

“We are in a race against time,” says Gore.

The aim of the 2015 global agreement, which had the world cheering when it was ratified, is to reduce carbon emissions as fast as possible to prevent the earth from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius in this century.

Temperatures that rise higher than 2 degrees Celsius could trigger catastrophic — and irreversible — environmental effects we can no longer control, such as food and water shortages, massive drought, more flooding, extreme weather, the rampant spread of disease and dangers posed by rising seas, say scientists.

 

The climate crisis also poses a threat to our national security — and life as we know it, say experts.

Calling the agreement a “bad deal” for the country that would cost coal miners their jobs, Trump — with the backing of 22 U.S. Senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — withdrew the U.S. from the international agreement.

While Trump insisted he made the right decision for the nation, his decision drew ire from major companies, world leaders and citizens around the globe.

But going green, says Gore and others, will actually boost the economy like never before. “Jobs in the solar industry are increasing 17 times faster than other jobs are increasing in the U.S.,” he says.

The fastest growing job of all? “Wind turbine technician,” he says.

“According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, that will be the fastest growing job in the next ten years,” he says.

All over the world, tens of millions of new jobs in renewable energy, new technologies and sustainability are opening up, he says.

The Sustainability Revolution, as he calls it, “is happening all over the world. It has the scope and magnitude of the industrial revolution but the speed of the digital information revolution and it’s changing everything for the better.”

Solar and wind energy, batteries and hundreds of other efficiency technologies are now becoming much cheaper, far more rapidly than anyone predicted, he says.

“It’s almost like the computer chip revolution and the mobile phone revolution where products got much cheaper, faster than anyone could have imagined, even as their quality improved by leaps and bounds.”

Power Vacuum

Not only is the U.S. losing out on economic and trade opportunities by opting out of the agreement, but it is giving up its standing as the leader of the world, leaving a void that other nations, like China, are eager to fill, says Gore.

Withdrawing our country from the pact “has isolated the U.S. in the world community,” he adds.

By leaving the agreement, the U.S. gave away any say in how the world will tackle the climate crisis in the future, he says.

“The real risk is that all of these other countries will retaliate against the U.S. by trading among themselves and concentrating new jobs in solar and wind in their countries and not the U.S.,” he says.

“They have the legal right now to put up barriers against U.S. products that don’t bear any price for carbon pollution.”

‘We Still Have a Chance’

While the world still has a lot to do to head off catastrophe, “we definitely still have a chance,” he says.

While his upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel, will focus on how serious this crisis is, it will also detail how “available” solutions are now, he says.

“The big change from 10 years ago is that solar, wind and other renewable technologies are now getting so cheap that it’s easy to switch over,” he says.

Also encouraging? How U.S. businesses including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, GE and others, and individual cities and states are moving on without Trump to solve the climate crisis.

On June 1, California, New York and Washington formed the U.S. Climate Alliance, which is committed to upholding the country’s goals under the Paris Agreement and take aggressive action against the climate crisis.

Since then, 10 states including Connecticut, Hawaii and Virginia have joined the coalition.

“We’re going to meet the commitments under the climate agreement, regardless of what President Trump does,” says Gore.

“If we all make up our minds to do this, we can all solve the climate crisis.”

Twitter Is Concerned Ryan Seacrest Is Coming For All Of Our Jobs

On Monday, Kelly Ripa announced that Ryan Seacrest would be her new “Live! with Kelly” co-host, replacing Michael Strahan after he left for “Good Morning America” in May of last year. 

Seacrest is a surprising choice for co-host, only because he’s one of the busiest people in the media business today. 

The former “American Idol” host is a producer on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” hosts a radio show, is a staple on the on the red carpet during award season, and is ABC’s annual New Year’s Eve host since taking over duties from the late Dick Clark. If that wasn’t enough, the CW announced in January that it picked up a new scripted pilot from Ryan Seacrest Productions called “Insatiable,” which is, well, a good description of Seacrest. 

Yes, the 42-year-old is an incredibly busy guy ― something that was not lost on Twitter users, who couldn’t help pointing out that Seacrest might have his hands full.

5 Key Things People Who Love Their Jobs Do Differently

You’ve done it again.

Found yourself in another dead-end job that you just can’t stand.

You feel like you’ll never get anywhere and this is as good as it gets. You’re wondering why you can’t just be happy where you are. Maybe if you would have negotiated a little harder. Stuck to your guns about benefits. Asserted yourself just a little more. Things might have been different. You might appreciate your job.

But maybe not. Plenty of other people make more money than you do and rarely hit happy at work. You tell yourself to just be glad you have a job. But you suspect that’s not enough to make you happy where you are. And the hard reality is — you’re probably right. You’re still missing something.

And it very well could be this…

What’s the Secret to Loving Your Job?

People who love their jobs didn’t win the perfect job jackpot. They don’t just have a different job than you do. In fact, loving their job has very little to do with what they do at work at all. Find someone who says they love their job and you’ve found someone who loves their life. People who are happy with life before and after 5:00 p.m. do their whole lives differently. Here are some characteristics of people who love their jobs and five things they’re doing right all the time.

1. They follow their passion.
People who love their jobs do what they love at home, no matter what they do at work. They don’t wait till they can do it full-time. They don’t wait to save up a million dollars. They follow their passion right now — any way they can. They know that their job doesn’t need to be their passion and that sometimes it works out better to keep their hobbies completely separate. They don’t resent their job for getting in the way of doing what they love. They appreciate the security it affords them to pursue their other interests.

2. They look for the happy people.
People who are happy with their lives and love working every day hang around other people who are happy too. They don’t sit around gossiping. They steer clear of the rabble-rousers who drag down morale. Instead, they practice constructive habits with others. They stay on the lookout for positive people who build up the workplace instead of tearing it down with negativity.

3. They start their day the way they want to finish it.
People who are happy at work deliberately set the tone for their entire day. From the moment they wake up, they make an effort to create a calm, positive mindset and clear the chaos from their world. You won’t catch them hanging out with the drama queens. They love being at work because they practice how to think clearly, lose the attitude, and stay motivated during the day.

4. They don’t expect their job to make them happy.
They create their own fulfillment and feel useful both in and out of the workplace. They take Amy Poehler’s advice and treat their job like a bad boyfriend. You know it’s not going to call the next day, let alone ask you to marry it. So they don’t expect it to. People who love their jobs are already satisfied. They don’t need their job to complete them.

5. They prefer excellence over perfection.
People who love their jobs always do their best. Whether at home or at work, they pursue excellence in everything they do. They don’t get caught up in trying to fabricate the perfect result. They don’t beat themselves up if things don’t go just as planned. They know that when they take care to perform well, their outcomes meet standards of excellence. No matter if it’s before or after 5:00pm, they can always take pride in a job well done.

The One Thing Standing in Your Way

Nine-to-five is a long time to have to grit your teeth and bear it every day. If you want the rewards of loving your job, start living a rewarding life.

Loving life takes effort. It requires passion. And deliberate practice. And showing up with excellence.

Stick with it, and you’ll change the way you show up during nine-to-five, too. Loving your job depends on it. The only thing you need to decide is, how bad do you want it?

10 Jobs I’m Now Qualified for Since Adding Parenting to My Resume

Although I’ve been home with my kids for the last 5 years, I have never thought of my situation as a permanent break from the workforce.

Don’t get me wrong; I have absolutely no regrets with my current at-home position. I love being able to be here at this stage in the game, and I’m so grateful to be in a position to do it. However, there are some aspects that I miss though that come with having a career outside of the home, like the adult interaction, for example. That’s one of the main reasons I started blogging.

Conversations with my then 5, 3, and 1 year old kids could only take an adult so far. You start to realize that your brain needs another level of engagement when you seriously start getting sassy with Dora and answering, “The Map! It’s the #@%$ Map again!”

Next year my youngest will be starting all day Kindergarten, so recently I’ve been thinking about what I’ll be doing with my free time while all three kids are in school all day. Will I finally have more time for my writing? Should I attempt to rejoin the workforce? Will I just be sitting around in my PJ pants, eating bon-bons and watching soap operas?

Each scenario clearly has its benefits.

Thinking through this a little further I wondered, What would I do if I did return to the workforce? Would I go back to corporate training (which was my last gig), or perhaps I could try something new? My initial concern was with my five year resume gap, but then, as I thought about parenting as a job itself, I realized that it has given me all kinds of new skills! In fact, should I decide to return to work, I’d have many new career opportunities to choose from thanks to all the new qualifications I’ve developed since becoming a parent.

2014-05-15-10JobsthatImNowQualifiedforsinceIaddedParentingtomyresume.jpg

1. Cruise Director
From the time my kids were old enough to sit up on their own, even before they were able to speak, I’ve been getting the look that says, “Entertain me!” Of course, now they are old enough to speak, and unless it’s allotted screen time, I usually have at least one kid per 20 minutes audibly expressing their boredom and their need to tell me they don’t know what to do. I can’t say they always like my suggestions. So whether cruise activities were swimming, playing shuffle board, or cleaning their own cabins, this cruise director can always find something to do.

2. Hostage Negotiator
You may think I’m being dramatic, or that there would be no way that without proper training I could be qualified for a job like this, but if your entire family has ever been held up because your toddler refuses to put on pants so you can all go enjoy the zoo, park, or any other activity that society requires be done while wearing pants, then you know exactly what I’m saying. Sure, you’re the parent and you could just make her put on the darn pants, but then there’s crying, yelling, and other unpleasantries that I prefer to avoid before even stepping out the door. The key, of course, is making her think that you’re on her side, and that you just want to help her. You gain her trust, speak in a soothing tone, and make her believe that wearing pants is her idea. After a standoff that lasts minutes, but feels like hours, she gives up and puts on pants! A win for the good guys! Until she says she has to pee…

3. Animal Trainer
I don’t mean to brag, but my kids are pretty much house trained. They nearly always pee in, on, or around a toilet. They will sit on command, especially if I’m offering a treat, and my kids will also even lay down when I (repeatedly) give the command (200 times) each night at bedtime. I know, it’s amazing, and it’s all thanks to my stellar training skills. I’m pretty sure this qualifies me to train just about any other kind of domesticated animal.

4. Circus Ring Leader
Not only do I have the skills to train animals, I am also able to run my house like a three kid, three ringed family circus. My house guests marvel at my ability to tame the savage toddler. They gasp as simultaneously another child in the next ring (room) paints the dog’s face like a clown’s, all while the third kid walks the tightropes that are my nerves by asking 9000 times if he can play video games. The floors resemble those that you’d find under a big top too, with a variety of snacks like popcorn and peanut shells. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think from all the stomping up and down the steps that we were housing elephants too. If I really wanted to pull out all the stops, I am also able to double as the Bearded Lady if given a few weeks notice.

5. Chauffeur
This one requires little explanation to anyone with children. Whether it’s school, extracurricular activities like sports or scouts, birthday parties, doctor’s appointments, or wherever your unlicensed youth need to go, it can sometimes feel like you’re living in your car. I even keep snacks and drinks, along with books for entertainment … for myself. Personally, I think I’d make a great professional driver since I’m already always in the car, my record is clear of accidents and violations, and at this point adding a fare device to charge a fee only seems fair.

6. Harry Potter House Elf
Just like a House Elf from Harry Potter, I am immensely devoted to the family which I serve. I work tirelessly for them, but unlike a Harry Potter House Elves, who can only be freed if their masters give them clothing, I can only be freed by the gift of clean clothing. Alas, a House Mom only truly becomes free once her masters start doing their own laundry. Looks like I’ve got a while left to serve. Although this isn’t a job I’d look for in the workforce, I’m unfortunately over-qualified for the no-pay position.

7. Sewer Inspector
I think that most people, regardless of their experience level with children, go into parenting with the expectation that it’s messy at times. But until you’re actually in it, you have no idea how far that actually goes, and how you may never look at a bathroom the same way again — particularly after potty training. Once kids are potty trained, however, you’re not off the hook. I’ve retrieved items from toilets that include, but are not limited to: large wads of toilet paper, entire rolls of toilet paper, cardboard toilet paper rolls, HotWheels, Matchbox Cars, army men, plastic dinosaurs, a whole banana, tennis ball, sock, coins, underwear, Legos, and a variety of plastic undersea animals. My toilet-fishing abilities might also qualify me for a spot on The Deadliest Catch, or at the very least, a spin off, The Nastiest Catch.

8. Bug Breeder
I had never really sat down and thought about where people get mail order bugs, but if I had to guess, I bet some of them like the kind people buy for ant farms, come from families with young children. At one point my family had cut out the middle man and had our own pet ants, much to my dismay (they left crackers under the doormats to attract them). Five years later and I’m still trying to get rid of these pesky pets.

9. Pooper scooper
I’ve been down with O.P.P. (Other People’s Poop) for over eight years, and as much as it pains me to admit this, I’d be overly qualified for just about any job that involved the cleaning or disposal of poop.

10. Personal Assistant to a Diva
I’ve calmly and effectively been able to deal with insanely unreasonable people who get upset for no reason (for example when their sandwich is cut into triangles and not squares). I’m used to taking orders all day long, even ridiculous requests like “Please wipe my butt because I’m too tired!” (See again why I’d be good at #9). So working as a personal assistant to a Diva or someone like Meryl Streep’s character from The Devil Wears Prada would be no big deal. I mean, at least I’d be getting paid!

What new skills have you acquired as a parent? Would you be qualified for a new career(s) too?

Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs


FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING BIOGRAPHIES OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AND ALBERT EINSTEIN, THIS IS THE EXCLUSIVE BIOGRAPHY OF STEVE JOBS. Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years–as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues–Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted. Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple’s hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.
