My wife told me she heard an interview where you were talking about the horrors of prescription drugs. I happened to hear some of this interview yesterday, and I have to say, I’m a little confused. You were talking to Pat O’Brien some asshat about how drugs prescribed for Attention Defecit Disorder are poisonous and harmful.

Perhaps I should just remind you that Pat O’Brien is a recovering addict. He had a semi-famous meltdown just a few months ago. Perhaps I should also remind you that you’re a movie star, not a board-certified doctor. You get paid to look pretty, not advise people on their medication. Obviously, irony is lost on you.

I think you should be careful telling people to stop taking their Strattera, given the fact that a good chunk of Middle America obviously waits to hear and believes every word out of your mouth. I, for one, couldn’t care less if you actually love that 24-year-old chick or not. (Frankly, I smell publicity stunt.) But the fact is that some people actually listen to you, because you’re a Famous Person.

Where you really scared me, though, was when you started talking about women with postpartum depression, and said that all they need are some vitamins and better nutrition. Excuse me, sir, but you’re a guy. You and your ex-wife adopted your kids, if I’m not mistaken. What do you know about postpartum depression, or pregnancy in general? Did you go through eight years of medical school? Are you an obstetrician? I mean, I didn’t really know about postpartum depression until a couple of years ago, but I learned about it pretty quickly. My wife and I watched a show last night where they said pregnant women release three times the hormones during pregnancy than a non-pregnant woman releases in her entire lifetime. Tom, a Centrum One-A-Day is not going to battle that many hormones, no matter what the Scientologists tell you to say. When the impressionable Enquirer subscribers start skipping their depression meds and harming their kids, I hope somebody points the Finger back at you.

So, Tom, I’d like to prescribe to you a big cup of Shut The Fuck Up, to be taken daily with your vitamins. Once they stick an M.D. behind your name, I’ll begin to take what you say a little more seriously.

    It’s so considerate of Tom Cruise to regularly remind us what a fucking tool he is.

  2. tbtine says:

    I’d like to thank you for saying what I have been too stunned to say.

    He’s such an asshole, and I think your prediction that he is going to go further and further Mel Gibson on the general public.

    Keep your freaky, made up religious opinions to yourself, dillhole. That’s what I would like to say to his face.

  3. Linda says:

    ITA. Nothing but good can come from Gibson, Cruise et al regularly discrediting themselves.

    Somewhere in all this is a good response to the Ann Coulter-ites who think celebrities should keep their mouths shut … unless the celebrity happens to be Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ted Nugent, Tom Selleck or Charlton Heston.

  4. Linda says:

    Oh – or that ethically bankrupt Dennis Miller.

  5. the idiot says:

    Dennis Miller: What a disappointment.

  6. Linda says:


    100% sellout.

  7. xlt says:

    Four out of five Scientologists recommend publicly gushing over a hot twenty-something starlet for their closeted homosexual members who chew gum.

  8. Linda says:


    I’m too skeered to Google scientology homophobia from work, but I wonder if maybe Scientology has some homophobic tenet that has thusly compelled Cruise to live in utter denial. Like maybe the same part of that effed-up system that says you can overcome any mental illness if you concentrate hard enough also says you can deny your sexual self if you’re an action star married to a six-foot Australian bombshell.

  9. tbtine says:

    Oh, but Linda, “Nicole knows what she did”, and that put an end to her being able to help him deny his sexual self.

    My guess is that she probably called him an idiot for believing all that Battleship Earth crap.

    It’s on between Brooke Shields and Tom Cruise. Cruise recently said that Shields was “irresponsible” for using medication to help her cope with postpartum depression. Shields tells People, “Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them.”

    Son of a *&*$%!!!

    You know, I truly believe that I had post-partum and I wish I hadn’t been such an idiot and gotten treatment for it instead of suffering through it. I actually called once and my ob’s office told me the wait for an appt. was 3 weeks. I figured if I could get through 3 weeks that I could make it on my own, as I’m sobbing right after I hung up the phone. I should have pushed the issue and said, “Look here SOB, you will give me an appt. earlier than that or else!” It’s scary that as a woman I was not aware of that 3xs hormones during pg’y thing, that explains a lot!

    Dillhole is right!
