“I’ll never forget the wording he used,” he said, before recounting what Tom allegedly told him: “‘It’s like with Scientology,’ he said, ‘If you let me just tell you what it was really about… just give me like 20 minutes to, like, really just tell you what it was about, you would say, ‘No f–king way. No f–king way.'”
Seth’s reaction to the pitch? “The wording, I was like, ‘Is that a good thing to be saying?'”
He and Judd looked at each other, and Seth worried about the outcome of the weighty moment. “Is he gonna bite? Am I gonna bite? Can we come out of this? Are we strong enough to have him do this to us and not be converted?” Seth reflected of his state of mind at the time. “I don’t know if I am. I’m generally a weak-willed, weak-minded person. I would assume on the grand scale of people, if they got [Tom], what chance do I have?”
Seth feels that he “dodged that bullet” thanks to Judd’s intervention. “Thank god Judd was like, ‘Eh, I think we’re good. Let’s just talk about movies and stuff.'”
Seth felt relieved, saying it had been “tempting” and “if I was there alone, I would be singing a very different tune right now.”
Just wait until you hear about what happened when Kyra Sedgwick pressed the panic button at Tom’s house. That’s a whole other story.
