I'm OK, You're a Jackass

Another episode of Celebrity Smackdown is getting underway. In the blue corner, Brooke Shields has a young child and is depressed; her opponent Tom Cruise is dating a young child and is happy:
Brooke Shields is sending a cruise missile Tom Cruise's way: The actress, who explores her postpartum depression in a new memoir, says Cruise has no right to dis her for using antidepressants.

Last week the "War of the Worlds" star expressed his Scientology-based condemnation of psychiatry to "Access Hollywood" by saying it was "irresponsible" of Brooke to say her meds helped cure her.

In a tangy and twisted bit of false praise, T.C. added: "I care about Brooke Shields ... (but) you look at where has her career gone?"

Speaking to People mag, Brooke was polite: "Tom should stick to saving the world from aliens, and let women who are experiencing postpartum depression decide what treatment options are best for them."
When Tom Cruise was a nobody in Hollywood, where did he make his film debut? It was as a bit player in "Endless Love", which starred Brooke Shields, who had been a star for several years at that point.

When Tom eventually becomes a nobody in Hollywood and people ask "where has his career gone", I'm guessing he'll be wanting Brooke's meds a bit more than she's wanting his copy of Scientology right now.
