Actor R. Lee Ermey, best known for playing the drill sergeant in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, is claiming that Kubrick phoned him shortly before his death in February 1999 to tell him that Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman "had their way with him" on the set of Eyes Wide Shut, that he was "disgusted" with the finished film and thought it was a "piece of s--t."
Sorry, but I don't buy Ermey's story, and not just because I'm a fan of the movie. It was Kubrick who kept Cruise and Kidman sequestered on a London soundstage for nearly two years during the filming of the movie, and not the other way around. Whatever you might think of Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick was clearly the one calling the shots on that set.
Besides, Kubrick would not hesitate to get rid of an actor who wasn't giving him what he wanted: Both Harvey Keitel and Jennifer Jason Leigh were part of the original cast of Eyes Wide Shut, but both were replaced during production. Kubrick may not have been the eccentric weirdo he was reputed to be, but he certainly wasn't the "shy timid little guy" that Ermey describes, either.
I'm guessing Ermey is probably just looking to get a little attention for his newest movie, which needs all the help it can get.
