Cuba Gooding Jr. ‘lets loose in New York’

Cuba Gooding Jr

Cuba Gooding Jr. "had the room in the palm of his hand" as he danced shirtless in New York City over the weekend.

The actor is currently serving as a juror at the annual Tribeca Film Festival, and seemed determined to celebrate in style on Saturday night.

Cuba started his boozy escapades at the Day & Night brunch in the Meatpacking District, where “he was going crazy, dancing" and later took his shirt off and "started flexing his muscles.”

He soon headed to the Dream Downtown, where the star was spotted "dancing with everyone. He got up on the banquette, took his shirt off and wrapped it around his head. He had the room in the palm of his hand."

According to the New York Post, Cuba was overheard announcing: “This is a phenomenal f**king hotel!”

Cuba's antics were all in good fun, and the 44-year-old star's representative has laughed off his actions.

“It’s great to represent someone like Cuba who is such a people person and who has a great time being Cuba. Look at his Oscar speech. This is very much in character. He is high-energy and exuberant," the spokesperson told the US publication.

Cuba is on the judging panel of the Tribeca Film Festival's All Access Creative Promise Awards alongside stars including Rosario Dawson, Mekhi Phifer and Gabourey Sidibe.

The festival runs from April 18 to April 29 in New York City.
