In the 1999 film Magnolia, Tom Cruise's character, Frank T.J. Mackey, an author of a self-help guide for men, tells his audience that before any women will sleep with them, they must "respect the cock!"
Someone should have told Tom that back in high school.
He's been a heart throb for decades, but according to sources, no one wanted to end up in the clutches of a young Tom Cruise (right) at Glen Ridge High School in New Jersey, where the future movie star was quite the competitive wrestler.
"Even then everybody knew who he was, but it wasn't because anyone thought he'd be a movie star," says a former competitor at rival Seton Hall Prep.
Cruise was particularly adept at a hold called the "High Crotch," which involves, well, an arm between the legs of one's opponent.
"The pain it caused was excruciating to say the least," the wrestler told Steppin' Out magazine.
A rep for Cruise, stunningly, declined comment on the story. On a similar note, no information is available on the subject of Tom's strange habit of pile-driving fiancee Katie Holmes, then smashing chairs over her head.
