Remember Lana, Tom Cruise’s gorgeous love interest in Risky Business? You won’t believe what she looks like 34 years on…

WHO remembers Risky Business? The x-rated version of Ferris Bueller’s Day off that was Tom Cruise’s big break.

Randy Joel decides to book a call girl and eventually ends up meeting stunning Lana.

But the woman of the night doesn’t come cheap and Joel has to scrape around to pay for his night of passion.

His dad’s Porsche later rolls into a lake and in order to get it fixed Lana and Joel team up introduce her prostitute friends to his wealthy teenage mates in one big profitable party. That’s the risky business part.

But you probably just remember THAT underwear dance scene around the living room.
