Tom

So, today, on The Today Show, Tom Cruise sort of apologized for going off on Matt Lauer over Brooke Shields' use of anti-depressants to treat her post-partum depression. Thing is, he didn't apologize for what he said; that psychietry and prescription drugs are total bullshit and that no one should ever use them - oh no. What he told Matt is that he's sorry for the WAY he said it. I'm sorry, but there is no appropriate way to pass judgment on how a woman deals medically with her post-partum depression. You have never given birth, Tom. Admit you were wrong. Just admit it.

It just pisses me off that to pimp his movie Valkerie he is PRETENDING to make ammends without recanting anything. He is pretending to be a new, more enlightened Tom Cruise, but he's just as offensive and foolish as ever. Only now he regrets having been blunt about his beliefs. He doesn't regret what he said; he just regrets making it so clear that we all got it. Ugh, sorry, you're still that creep jumping on Oprah Winfrey's couch to me...
