Cruise to Shields -- I Acted Like a Jerk

9/2/2006 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Cruise, Brooke ShieldsThat must've been awkward: Tom Cruise went to Brooke Shields' house on Thursday and apologized for slamming her use of antidepressants. Shields says that she thinks the apology was "heartfelt," but Cruise still maintains that antidepressants are evil.

On an appearance on the "Tonight Show" last night, Shields told Jay Leno that Cruise "came over to my house, and he gave me a heartfelt apology. And he apologized for bringing me into the whole thing and for everything that happened." Shields added that she was "impressed" with the "Mission: Impossible 3" star's sincerity, and that Cruise was able to restrain himself from proselytizing about the evils of psychoactive pharmaceuticals.

Not that Cruise has changed his mind: According to his rep, who confirmed the apology, Cruise "has not changed his position about antidepressants, which as evidenced by the black label warnings issued by the FDA on these types of drugs, are unhealthy."



Paris HiltonParis: "Hey Sister of Nicky, I Gave Him a Hickey"

Several witnesses at the MTV VMAs recount the interaction between Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Nicole's new guy, Brody Jenner, in a Radio City green room. As Nicole and Brody chilled, Paris swept in and, according to Page Six, "threw her arms around his neck and squealed, 'Hello.' She started whispering in his ear and kissing his neck -- and Nicole was getting really mad."

But Brody took it a little too far -- he actually turned his back on Nicole to chat with her nemesis, and that's when Richie grabbed Jenner and hightailed it out of the room.

Gwen StefaniGwen Makes Her Move On J-Lo

Rocker couple Gwen Stefani and husband Gavin Rossdale have purchased a Beverly Hills home for $15.5 million that once belonged to Jennifer Lopez. The 10,000 sq. ft. house is in a gated community off Mulholland Drive and, according to current owner Sam Nazarian, the current kingpin of LA nightlife, is "designed for a celebrity" ... whatever that means.

As the Wall Street Journal reports, Lopez sold the property to Nazarian two years ago for $12.5 million. The estate also has a tennis and basketball court, a swimming pool and screening room.

Rosie O'DonnellParty Favors: Rosie Complains of "360 Words" You Can't Say on TV, Swank Goes Public With New Man, Trump Jr. Loves Cast-Iron Skillet

Rosie O'Donnell has already blogged about meeting with standards and practices at ABC -- she's been warned about what she can and can't say. But, today, a Gatecrasher spy says that the gab queen was telling people at a Kanye West concert that the list of verboten words is now a little more than the seven that George Carlin made famous: "[Rosie] was complaining about the list of '360 words' she's not allowed to say on the air" ... Hilary Swank and her new-ish guy, agent John Campisi, have gone public with their romance, after being spotted in Rome's Piazza Navona. "They were hugging and touching all the time," says a witness for People ... The Donald's son, Don Jr., has a beautiful 1,500 sq. ft. apartment full of goodies, but who knew that a Trump could be so nostalgic? He tells the New York Post that one of his favorite worldly possessions is a cast-iron skillet his grandmother used to make family dinner. "It was a very special thing for me to have," says the 28-year-old real estate mogul-in-training.

So, "Tommy Boy" waits a whole flippin YEAR before he says he is sorry. Day late and a few million short there butt-cheese........whatever. If Ms. Shields wants to accept his apology, that is her choice. As far as I am concerned, he is "off the charts"....

It's so interesting that he's chosen this time to apologize. Could it have anything to do with him getting dropped by his production company (can't remember -- Paramount?)

What took so long for the apology? It's been a least a year, maybe because his career is going down the tubes. I don't care for him or to see his movies and I don't think his apology is sincere or he would have apologized sooner.

Mr Cruise bashed Shields publicly on tv and every other media, why doesn't he apologize in the same way? Show his face.....this apology is just damage control. His attorney would call this defcon 5 mode and they are doing damage control 24/7 now after the Paramount incident. When will C/W apologize to Paramount.....well.....next year when he slips further into defcon 5.

So the cruiser is trying to reingratiate himself with his lost public. Who is HE kidding (besides himself and his fellow Scientologist loons)?

Perhaps Katie herself is experiencing some Post Partum Depression and now Tom has to eat his words. As the saying goes if you are going to say something use words that are sweat and kind as you never know when you will have to eat them.

If Brooke accepts his apology then I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt, that he woke up and realized how asinine his earlier comments had been.

marianne.    

what's up this week, first jon voight starts up with a very high profile very public and tranparent plea for forgiveness, now it's tom's turn to do the same? people shouldn't be fooled into believing that these two have anything but their own best interests in mind. I don't believe for one second that tom has changed his way of thinking. don't be taken in by these self-serving tactics

Curious    

I'm sure Tom watches the same TV clips the rest of us see, so why did it take a year for him to figure out that he made an ass of himself on the Today show? If he really wants to do something about his career, he should stop being so out spoken about his religion, quietly marry the mother of his child and make some decent movies. He has the right to live his life as he sees fit, but proselytzing a cult religion tends to put people off.

Cruise is trying to do some damage control to get back in the good graces of the public? LMAO! Hopefully he has learned to think before you speak.

So let me get this straight. This nut rings the doorbell and what? Does he stand outside, or does she invite him in? Does the husband say anything? He's entitled to his opinion but he he went overboard. We all know that many medicines are dangerous. If you read the warnings that come with them, you know that there's always a risk. But we have to do what's right for us. We don't need crazy cruise telling us to excerise and take vitamins. When did he go to medical school?
