Heather Locklear Opens Up About Horrible Date With Tom Cruise
Hollywood heartthrobs, including her two ex-husbands, Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora, have long pursued Heather Locklear but, once upon a time, a little risky business threatened to take her off the market.
The Franklin & Bash star revealed to Chelsea Handler that she and Tom Cruise had gone on a date early in their careers, but the smooth-talking star's approach didn't exactly sweep Heather off her feet.
The pair, who met at an audition when Tom was new to L.A. and "didn't have any friends," tried to spark some interest by heading to a club together, but that's where things fell apart.
“You know in Risky Business where he does that dance in his underwear?” Heather asked Chelsea. “We were dancing in a club and he went into that."
While that exact move could have likely stopped the hearts of most women at the time, it didn't impress Heather, who just stood there, mortified.
“You just kind of stand there and don’t know what to do. Do you dance around him? It was weird. I just sat down.”
Although the pair never went on another date, it's safe to say their careers — and love lives — have been on the upswing ever since.
