Knight Ridder

ReligionNewsBlog.com • Monday January 19, 2004

Tom Cruise has hit out at Hollywood’s therapy culture, insisting that the practice of psychiatry is a “waste of time” and should be made illegal, IMDB.com reports.

Reality Check for Tom Cruise

1) Cruise on psychiatry: “There’s nothing scientific about it.”

3) Now you know why Scientology hates psychiatry

Cruise follows the line of thinking adopted by his religion, the controversial Church Of Scientology, and refuses to accept psychiatry as a legitimate form of self-improvement.

The “Last Samurai” star, 41, says, “I think it’s an utter waste of time. There’s nothing scientific about it. Communication is a good thing, but I think people get more mentally out of having a good meal or going for a walk. I think psychiatry should be outlawed.”
