Remember when Tom Cruise knocked Brooke Shields down publicly for taking antidepressants after she was diagnosed with postpartum depression? And then the entire world went ape-crap over it and he is still to this day apologizing for it? Of course, this is a memory that is fresh in many people’s minds but it seems as though Bijou Phillips, who is not only a model but also a Scientologist, just as Cruise is, doesn’t seem to remember the incident as clearly. She has not come out and attacked anyone in particular but she is attacking every single person who has a mental illness, by saying that they should ‘buck up.’ It seems as though Bijou needed people to start talking about her and know who she is because I had never heard of her before this. And now I’m feeding right into the plot by writing about it. From US,
“Scientologist model Bijou Phillips went off on a tangent about the dangers of psychiatrists medicating depression during a recent interview with Paper Magazine.
“My grandparents didn’t take any pills, and they were fine,” Phillips said in the February issue of Paper. “Just buck up and get over it. Stop being such a f—king pansy.”
The budding actress frequents Scientology-sponsored events and spoke out against psychiatry and prescribing patients with medication for such mental illnesses as depression or anxiety.
Phillips, 28, lived alone in New York City after legally emancipating herself from her parents — her father, John Phillips, was in the Mamas and the Papas — when she was 14 years old. After several years on her own, she went to rehab.”
Well that sounds like someone with a good head on her shoulders. She’s been alone since she was 14 and has had to go to rehab because of it. I just hate Scientology, I just hate it. I don’t understand how people can be so ignorant not to learn the benefits of these drugs and the number of people they help. I don’t generally like to put it ‘out there’ that I hate anybody but these people have made it clear that they feel free to judge others quite vocally so I feel justified doing so as well when it comes to them. I hate Scientology.
