Brooke Shields' war of words with Tom Cruise has taken another twist after the
actress slammed Cruise's recent rant against psychotherapy and
anti-depressant medication on TV show Today.
Cruise, who is a devotee of L. Ron Hubbard's Scientology religion, lashed out
Shields in an interview last month for condoning the use of drugs she
used to help overcome postpartum depression.
But Shields is determined to have the final word--and she is even thankful
to Cruise for increasing public knowledge about the debilitating mental
Shields tells the New York Times, "I'm going to take a wild guess and say
that Mr. Cruise has never suffered from postpartum depression.
"To suggest that I was wrong to take drugs to deal with my depression, and
that instead I should have taken vitamins and exercised shows an utter lack of
understanding about postpartum depression and childbirth in general.
"If any good can come of Mr. Cruise's ridiculous rant, let's hope that it
gives much-needed attention to a serious disease."
