Who cares what Tom Cruise thinks? His opinions on matters are insignificant.

Hey may do a lot of good things but i think his perception on depression and women is a little funky. He needs to be more open minded. But nothing we can do about it right?

Tom has every right to his opinion but does he have to be such a condescending ass about it? So glad Brooke Shields gave him the smack down.

Tom is a talented actor but I'm afraid his persona is going to take over and the movie going public will not see a character on the screen but the guy who jumped all over Oprah's couch.
I totally agree with you Golightly Grrl. I also suffer from depression. Nobody knows what it's like unless they have been through it themselves.

True, but I'm just a little worried that some naive people out there might believe he's right when he says you can cure depression or mental illness "by exercise and vitamins."

There's already some stigma left when dealing with mental illnesses, Tom Cruise's comments aren't helping any.

Then again, maybe they are. I have yet to read or see anything in the media agreeing with him or supporting him on this subject. Maybe that shows how far we've come in treating depression as an illness, not something to be ashamed of.

Besides Matt Lauer, I'd really like to see Cruise interviewed by Mike Wallace from 60 minutes, because Wallace has dealt with depression in his own life and would probably tear Cruise a new one

There is an old adage in Hollywood....

"I don't care what you say about me, just spell my name right."

Love him or hate him, he's got people talking about him and his new film.

It's beginning to look to me as though this is all that this new relationship/ depression debate is trying to achieve.

I'm finding it hard to even like him as an actor right now

I'm concerned about what he is saying about depression and anti-depressants. Sure it's his opinion but last I checked he doesn't have a degree in any form of medicine so is far from an expert in the field. I worry that his comments may either stop someone from seeking medical treatment for depression or make someone stop taking an antidepressant (which by the way is a big no-no without supervision from a health care professional)

leave medical advice for the professionals and stick with acting

sorry -this just really irritates me

Did you guys see the segment on Today about anti-depressants?

Supossedly they had two people to represent both sides but they let the one who agreed with Tom Cruise talk more. Hehe!

It's a grey issue. I don't think there is a right or wrong answer. however, some people do need meds.

What are TC's view on people with Bipolar disorder??

I know a lot of people with this disease and if you stop taking their meds, they go OFF!

Tom seems to have an opinion in anything these days...

I wonder whether this is going to help or damage the opening of ''War of the Worlds" on Friday...

Tom, go home.

I think Tom should shut up about anti-depressants and go make Top Gun II.
