Tom Cruise Slams Brooke Shields

By May 31, 2005

Follow me on:

Tom Cruise, the movie star who uses his fame to promote Scientology, recently slammed Brooke Shields because she reveals in her recent book that she took an anti-depressant medication to deal with post-partum depression. Cruise, lacking any medical training, assures her and everyone that vitamins would have worked.

Female First reports:

Shields is currently weaning herself off her medication so she and husband CHRIS HENCHY can have another child.

Cruise maintains, "These drugs are dangerous. I have actually helped people come off. When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins. There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that. You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things."

In fact, there is science behind the idea that chemical imbalances produce depression. Scientologists, though, have a deep-seated hatred of everything associated with psychiatry not just the stereotypical psychiatric counseling, but also any medication designed to treat mental disorders. They reject the "science" behind this in favor of teaching that our souls have been infested with invisible spirits known as "Thetans" by the alien emperor Xenu.

Sure, that makes so much more sense.
