Ok, this it! I’ve had it! Now I’m seriously convinced Tom Cruise is trying to steal my identity. I’m a therapist who works with children with emotional problems and Tom claims to be a psychiatrist who marries children with emotional problems. This is what he said to Matt Lauer on the Today show today when asked about his criticism of Brooke Shields for taking antidepressants, “You don’t know the history of psychiatry. I do,” Cruise said. When Matt Lauer stated that he knew people who had benefited from taking Ritalin, Cruise replied, “Matt, Matt, you don’t even — you’re glib,” Cruise responded. “You don’t even know what Ritalin is. If you start talking about chemical imbalance, you have to evaluate and read the research papers on how they came up with these theories, Matt, OK. That’s what I’ve done.” Talk about an imbalance! Is it just me, or does anyone else think that perhaps Tom could benefit from some psychiatric medication? I hope poor, little Katie Holmes has good medical insurance, because those private psychiatric hospitals cost a bundle. When asked if he could be with someone at this stage in his life who doesn’t have an interest in the Church of Scientology, Cruise told interviewer Matt Lauer: “Scientology is something that you don’t understand. It’s like you could be a Christian and be a Scientologist.” Yeah Tom, that Scientology is doing wonders for your stability. I hope they make you Pope of Scientology. Tom, you’re an actor. Try acting like a sane person for a change.

Roflmfao! Too funny Phil. Although, i saw the interview and for someone who works with kids who’ve been abused and see’s the pain they’re in, Cruise wouldn’t know psychology from a freaking labotomy!
OMG- Phil you’re right on. I’m also a therapist who’s worked with ED, LD, ADD, ADHD, HI, GT, MMR,abused,etc and host of other labels I deplore having to use because these are people, not labels. >>I do have a few labels I could give good ol’ Tom C, though, but I’m a lady. Obviously, I saw that interview. I watch so little TV. I think I saw a replay, but you and Michelle are on the mark. (I sure wouldn’t use his “cruise control.”)
You are too funny! I agree some one needs to drug that man up!>Lois Lane
