Kyra Sedgwick made a confession on 'Late Show with David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM on CBS): She frequently makes social faux pas.
Letterman didn't believe it, so Sedgwick offered up a story for further proof.
Sedgwick was hanging out at Tom Cruise's house and was quite proud she hadn't said anything embarrassing. She had lasted through dinner and made it to socializing in the library when her eye spied a button. Just a button. No signs, just a button on a mantle.
"It wasn't attached to anything, didn't have any sign or anything ... just kind of this floating button, so I pressed it," Sedgwick said. "I don't know why, but I did, and nothing happened and I got scared, I got concerned."
So what did the mystery button do? Call the entire Beverly Hills Police Dept. to Cruise's house. "It was the panic button ... [the police] wouldn't leave until they saw Tom in person," she said.
Some dinner guest, right?
