Kyra Sedgwick has opened up about a funny moment when she inadvertently pressed a panic button while visiting Tom Cruise's house in the early Nineties.

Sitting in as a guest on The Drew Barrymore Show, the actor told Barrymore about the time she and husband Kevin Bacon were invited over to Cruise's home around when Bacon was filming A Few Good Men.

The gathering, which included a handful of major celebrities like Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Rob Reiner, and Nicole Kidman, resulted in "a pretty good story", she said, though she noted that it was also “a sad moment”.

“It was one of those nights that I often don't get invited to and so there was this like fireplace mantle and I was looking around and there was this little button underneath the mantle. I was like, ‘Oh what is that little button?’ So I pressed the little button because I thought maybe something interesting will happen,” she continued. “Nothing happened and then I got a little nervous.”

“I was like, ‘Oh nothing happened that doesn't seem right,’” the Closer actor said. “So I tapped Tom on the shoulder, who was in the middle of a story, and I said, ‘I pressed this button down here.’ And he was like, ‘You pressed that button?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I pressed that button.’ And he goes, ‘That's the panic button.’”

Sedgwick continued: “And so the cops came, they had to stop the screening, they had to see Tom… I think there were more than like five cop cars, it was something.”

“I didn't get invited back,” she laughed.
