It was a scene perhaps more suited to a stag night than a 42nd birthday party.
But partygoers at Matt Damon's big day at The Box burlesque club in London earlier this month as said to have been treated to the sight of Tom Cruise getting spanked on the bottom by a drag queen.
The incident is said to have happened during Damon's birthday party, organised by Damon's All You Need Is Love co-star Emily Blunt and her husband John Krasinski.
According to reports, Tom and Matt were both cornered by the drag queen during the party. Party planners: The event was organised by Damon's co-star Emily Blunt and her husband John Krasinski

A source told The Daily Star newspaper: 'Emilyâs husband John organised the kinky party, and chose to have it at Simon Hammersteinâs The Box club.
'He knew the birthday boy would see the funny side.
'Within the first couple of hours Tom and Matt were both paddled on their rears by the clubâs cross-dressing hostess.
'Matt got extra spanking, of course, as it was his special night.'
Other actors at the event included Chris Hemsworth and Bill Paxton, with Tom apparently enjoying the chance to spend time partying with his new friends.
The source added: 'It was a celeb-packed night, with stars including Chris Hemsworth and Bill Paxton turning out for Matt.
'Tom had arrived solo, but was soon having fun with his A-list friends.
'They all had a fantastic night enjoying the naughty stage shows and partying until the end of the night.'
Tom has been in London for the past few weeks, working on his new project All You Need Is Kill.
