I don't like Tom Cruise anymore

I don't know if any of you have been following this, but Tom Cruise is an idiot. He obviously has no idea what postpartum depression is.

After Cruise criticized Shields' use of antidepressants as "irresponsible" during an interview with Access Hollywood last week, Shields has suggested the leading man keep his opinions to himself.

"Tom Cruise's comments are irresponsible and dangerous," Shields said in London last week. "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."...

The actress has said she is currently in the process of weaning herself from the drug in order to try for a second child with husband Chris Henchy.

However, as a dedicated follower of Scientology, Cruise is of the belief that miNd-altering medications of any kind are "dangerous" and that women should treat conditions such as postpartum depression with "vitamins." Hence his stamp of disapproval on Shields' choice to use Paxil and to discuss that choice in her memoir.

"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," the actor told Access Hollywood.

I have never liked Tom Cruise. In his interview with Matt Lauer, he made himself look even more ignorant. Matt was doing the interview and Tom acted as though he is an expert in everything that was mentioned. Being a 'star' does not make one an 'expert' Tom. He certainly hasn't grown up in his mannerisms. His new found love will be short lived, one cannot 'change' into being devoted to 'Scientology', because they think they are in love. I hope for him the best and the best for him right now would be to have some serious therapy. He needs to keep his 'glib' comments to himself. And possible a year of marriage counseling before taking the leap.
