Tom Cruise was a charmer from an early age. "As the only son in the family, he had grown up around women," biographer Dominic Wills once explained. "Indeed, he remembers his sister Marian's friends coming round when he was just 6 or 7, sitting him up on the kitchen sink and using him for kissing practice. He says the first time he almost suffocated -- but it was fun."
[Magnolia director Paul Thomas Anderson was laughing so much during the filming of Cruise's "Seduce and Destroy" seminar scene ("Respect the cock!") that two-thirds of it had to be cut.]
