Tom Cruise Criticized Again For Scientology Theories Regarding Psychiatry
Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has been criticized again for his Scientology believes regarding psychiatry, this time by the best-selling crime author Patricia Cornwell.
According to London Evening Standard newspaper, Cornwell, 49, the author of a popular series of crime novels featuring the fictional heroine "Dr. Kay Scarpetta", declared that Cruise's preaches about the evil of anti-depressants, could badly influence his young naïve fans.
"There's going to be some girl or boy who worships this megastar, who decides, 'I'm not going to take my anti-depressants because Tom Cruise said I don't need drugs.'"
This is not the first time for Cruise to be criticized for his Scientology believes. He openly criticized actress Brooke Shields for using the drug Paxil, an anti-depressant, which Shields claims helped her recover from post-partum depression after the birth of her daughter in 2003.
Brooke Shields slammed back the superstar, subsequently describing Cruise's comments as "irresponsible and dangerous".
