|Liz Smith gave America a sneak preview of Kirk's "no-holds-barred" MOVIELINE interview in her November 5, 1992 column:". . . As fans of this cutting-edge publication know, MOVIELINE employs those naughty Hollywood Kids, who provide the mag with many blind (or at least vision-impaired) items. The Kids also have their own Q&A column where they persuade celebs of yesterday, today and tomorrow to say the most outrageous things. This time out they've got former Disney child and teen star Tommy Kirk--and does he dish! Kirk . . . describes his mentor, Walt Disney, as 'notoriously cheap' . . . his frequent on-screen dad Fred MacMurray as 'cold . . . when I was 17, I kidded him about his wanting a close-up. He became enraged' . . . Elsa Lanchester?--'a bitch' . . . Jane Wyman?--'hated her, she talked like a truck driver!'|
|From MOVIELINE, December 1992:
It's rumored that around 1964 you were fired by Walt Disney over some shocking scandal. True?
I've never spoken about this publicly before. (Long pause) I was caught having sex with a boy at a public pool in Burbank. We were both young, and the boy's mother went to Walt. I was quickly fired.
What was your social life like during that time, the mid-60s?
ALL my social life was underground gay. It was my own life. I kept it separate from work, where I went on publicity dates with Annette (Funicello) or Roberta Shore.
Which Oscar-nominated actor went to school with the Duke of Cambridge?
As if! Clueless turns 20-years-old this July.
We loved Leah Remini as Stacy Carosi. Next Jimmy Fallon reunion, maybe?
