Recently I said that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were not news. I still think that their courtship belongs more in the tabloids than it does on prime time news but I'm beginning to reconsider whether or not Cruise is newsworthy. I think he is...kind of like a one man train wreck.
It's horrible watching destruction like that but so hard to look away.
Part of me wants to give him the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps he is so anti-medication because he is reacting to a culture around him which believes there's a pill to cure everything. Obviously drugs can be misused and abused but that doesn't mean the same drugs can't have benefits when used properly.
The other part of me wishes he weren't so against psychiatry and psychiatric medication because, in my unprofessional opinion, he could use their help. Acting manic and confrontational isn't a rational way to convert people to your way of thinking.
Maybe he's afraid a doctor would ask him if his real problem with Brooke Shields isn't her use of antidepressants but that she's 5" taller than he is.Posted by marybeth at June 25, 2005 05:11 AM Box of Rocks
