What happened with Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer during "Top Gun"?
Came across this on wikipedia while looking something else up:%0D\
Following their appearance together in Top Gun, Kilmer and co-star Tom Cruise reportedly had taken their onscreen conflict offscreen. Reports classified the two as holding a vitriolic hatred of one another. Kilmer even refused to participate in a charity beach volleyball game with Cruise on the grounds that he was "dangerous", although Kilmer is noted to have knocked Cruise out in a fistfight during the filming of Top Gun.%0D\
"dangerous" sounds like Tom was recruiting for his cult back then.
A Gay man who promotes an anti-gay cult.....yeah that is the definition of dangerous.
Insanity can be dangerous
His cult has been known to indulge in criminal activity
Anyone who punches the lights out of schmarmy weasels is a hero to me.\
Bravo Mr. Kilmer.
Not involving Kilmer, but when a stunt went wrong in the T.G. filming, it''s been said that Cruise was trapped underwater and a Navy SEAL jumped in to save him. Reportedly, Cruise never bothered to thank the Navy guy.
Isn''t Tom Cruise the only one that can assist in an emergency?

A-hem! I''m still here.
During the 90s, Kilmer was known as "The Biggest Asshole in Hollywood", so it''s not surprising that he didn''t get along with Cruise.%0D\
IMHO they deserved each other. They should have made all their films together, to spare all the other actors in the world.
It was 25 years ago. Really, Mr. Van Winkle, who gives a flying fuck?
Since both of them were ego-driven control freaks who were both on the cusp of the title of ''biggest stah,'' I would say they probably disagreed ON EVERYTHING.
Kilmer has had to watch his career swirl into the toilet, as he packs on the lard and does the occasional "independent film" (I''m sure his Batman money is long since spent). Not a Cruise fan, but it must be galling.
Kilmer and RDJ need to make another buddy flick. They are hilarious together.\
And Kilmer can still pull it together when he needs to. He looked pretty good as Gay Perry.
I think Val was trying to top him and Tammy wouldn''t have any of it. After all, everyone knows she''s the butch one.
Tammy ... teehee. That always kills me.

Val''s directing himself and starring in a Mark Twain movie coming up? Hmmm.%0D\
I hope that MacGruber money helped him settle his tax debts already.
R1, maybe he was recruiting for his bedroom.
I think a pilot was killed making that movie.
Val wouldn''t be such a fat ass if he''d just listened.
Boys, boys... you''re both the biggest assholes in Hollywood.

Did the Scienos take him out?
Well, despite their supposed hatred of each other their inappropriate sexual chemistry was the only interesting thing about Top Gun. I think it''s the only time I''ve ever believed that Tom Cruise was actually attracted to one of his co-stars.
"I think Val was trying to top him and Tammy wouldn't have any of it. After all, everyone knows she's the butch one."
OMG, I just aboud died laughing after reading this one :). You sir, are my hero :), whomever you are.
