Cruise is Crazy, Even Without the Placenta Au Gratin
2006.04.19 (Wed) 22:32
Yes, we've all heard the latest about Tom Cruise and his "plans" to eat the placenta when Katie Holmes delivers his blank-slate-ripe-for-implanting-with-Dianetics...er, baby in a short while. We've also heard that he's insisting he was just joking. Hey, we have no trouble buying that he was joking, but Tom — let this be a lesson to you: if you run around sincerely spouting utterly insane bullshit like you do, don't be surprised when people take seriously the rest of the utterly insane bullshit that you spout. Reaping, sowing, you know the drill.
Of course, our favorite bit in this article was the amusing "slip" attributed to Cruise:
Last week Cruise told US chat show host Diane Sawyer that 27-year-old Holmes, in the final stages of her pregnancy with their first child, will practice "quiet birth."
Cruise explained that "quiet birth," which aims to minimize talk and other noise inside the delivery room," is "basically just respecting the mother."
"She does what she's gotta do," he explained, addressing speculation that such a practice would deny her pain medication. "If she needs medicine, she needs medicine."
Not to be too persnickety about it, but note that Cruise didn't say "If she needs medicine, she'll get medicine." Again, such a slip wouldn't be a warning sign coming from somebody who hadn't already demonstrated how batshit insane they are. Tommy: if you don't want your statements to be misinterpreted quite so often, then ease up on the asinine Scientology crap. Otherwise, learn to live with it.
