Rourke Slams Cruise Over Therapy Comments

Subscribe to Mickey Rourke alerts

Hollywood wildman Mickey Rourke has blasted Tom Cruise for publicly criticising psychiatry, calling the superstar actor a "c**t". Sin City star Rourke regularly sees a therapist, who he credits with saving both his life and career, to discuss his irrational dislike of certain actors, which has caused him to turn down a number of roles. And Rourke was outraged by Cruise's infamous appearance on US TV show TODAY last year (05), during which he criticised Brooke Shields' use of anti-depressant medication when she was diagnosed with post-partum depression following the birth of her first child. Cruise is a staunch follower of the Church of Scientology, which publicly opposes the study and practise of psychiatry. Rourke says, "(My therapist) saved my f**king life and my career. I don't care what Tom Cruise says about therapy. F**k him. C**t. Pick on poor Brooke Shields. "People need medicine and they need therapists. Let the Scientologists go f**king live on a planet of their own."
