Below is an interview between Paul Barresi (pictured here) and a man that is only referred to as Big Red. The interview focuses on an extramarital quasi-sexual encounter between Big Red and Tom Cruise.
Now, some of you may recognize the name Paul Barresi. He has been linked to several high-profile celebrity sex scandals (Travolta, Eddie Murphy, and Michael Jackson), but I know him as the director/producer/actor of some of my favorite films; including, but not limited to: Married Men with Men on the Side; Dads in Lads 2; and Leather Bears & Smooth-Chested Huskies.
Big Red’s identity has never been revealed. He was described as a buff redheaded male prostitute who starred in a number of gay adult films. I searched through some of the seediest corners of the Internet trying to track this fella down but to no avail. I even signed up for a membership at Rentboy.com, but quickly X’d out of the screen when I felt it move, and I haven’t been back since. My username is “Beefy Alpha Male” and the password is “Michael Devlin” if anyone wants to continue the search for Big Red.
Anyway, Big Red approached Barresi about helping him sell his sordid tales of sexual encounters with many of Hollywood’s leading men to the National Enquirer. The stories were never publicized but I found this interview online and thought it was relevant due to the recent collapse of Tom’s marriage to Katie Holmes.
Enjoy. I know I did. My editorializing is in bold.
PAUL: Okay, before we get ahead of ourselves, let me ask you a few other preliminary questions. How many clients do you service on a monthly basis?
RED: Well, now sometimes I’ll take a month or two off, just to catch up but, in a good month, I’ll service about three to five hundred men.
Hard working fella. Gotta respect his ambition. It’s understandable that he’s gotta take a month or two off from time-to-time. For a man in that line of work, it’s nearly impossible to earn a living once you compromise the integrity of your rectal wall.
PAUL: You stated you attracted celebrity clientele, one of whom is Tom Cruise. Name some of the others. Just their names for now.
RED: There’s Antonio Bandares, Jason Priestly and country singers Garth Brooks and Randy Travis.
PAUL: Okay, how did Garth Brooks find you?
RED: On boyzusa.com.
I prefer finding my partners by playing footsies under the stall divider in a rest area men’s room, but to each his own.
Big Red then went on to tell how he topped Garth Brooks for over two hours while peaking on Viagra. He said he got paid about $500-$600 for the tryst; although, he apparently was not too impressed with Brooks’ appearance, often referring to him as a “whale.”
The conversation then turned to his alleged encounter with Tom Cruise in 1999 while the scientologist was in London filming Eyes Wide Shut.
RED: Marcello (club host) took me to a room outside this club to wait and I just sat there. Then two men came into the room. They told me it would be a very simple job and that they were going to pay me in cash, showing me an envelope with approximately five hundred UK pounds in cash.
PAUL: Then what?
RED: They took me with them in a car and we drove, I think to the Highgate area, to a house. Nothing spectacular. We went into the back of the house where Tom Cruise was sitting on a small sofa. A mat had been spread out on the floor. Cruise, dressed in what looked like a body suit, looked so cute. Either a black or very dark navy blue body suit for wrestling. He had on a little cap thingy, but the chin strap wasn’t attached.
Fantastic Mental Image.
RED: Grinning and gloating at me, he said, “Strip down to your underwear and play with me for a little while.” That’s really the only conversation we had. We played. We wrestled. He was nice to me. I mean, he let me win, then he asked me if it was okay if he could rip off my briefs and told me he would buy me a new pair.
“He let me win” – that sounds like the type of talk that comes out of some limp-wristed super-bottom’s mouth, not somebody who topped Garth Brooks for over 2 hours. Must be a Switch, which is extremely rare.
RED: I remember looking very close into his eyes and (I could tell because I used to tint my eyebrows and lashes) – maybe not his brows, but for sure his lashes were tinted because they had been growing out and I could see kind of like a lighter color around the edges of his eyes and if you look closer, he is a very fair skinned man.
PAUL: You wrestled around with him for how long?
RED: About an hour and a half, maybe.
No wonder Tom Cruise looks like he’s molded from granite at the age of 50. I’m canceling my membership to Lifetime Fitness and spending two hours a day with wrestling partners that I find on Craigslist.
PAUL: And what was going on?
RED: I was in my underwear and he was touching my butt mostly and, his finger – through the underwear touched my anus and he was stroking my balls, just a little bit. It was quick. He whispered in my ear, “It’s okay. Just relax. Just relax.” At one time he actually picked me up and threw me down and said, “I think red heads are really hot, and I hear you’re called Big Red.” Then, once my underwear was off, he got into some serious stroking. He told me to jack off so he could watch. I did and after I came, he threw me a towel. I got dressed and then the two men drove me back to the club in London.
This is what makes me think this encounter actually happened. It wasn’t some depraved rompfest with ejaculatory fluids flying everywhere, but some married dude just trying to push it to the limit, and still leave himself enough wiggle room to deny it later.
