Tom Cruise Apologizes to Brook Shields For His Remarks Concerning Her Use of Paxil

Brook Shields told the “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Friday night that Tom Cruise had come over to her house and apologized for his remarks and bringing her into his rant concerning psychiatry and anti-prescription drugs. Cruise claimed in May of 2005 that Shields was “misguided” because she used of the anti-depressant Paxil.

To make things worse, when he told Access Hollywood in 2005 that she was misguided, he also said Shield’s career was over. According to the TMZ website, Paramount (Viacom) chief, Sumner Redstone and his wife Paula Fortunato were offended enough to fire the 44 year old Mission Impossible star last month.

Shields, 41, said that she felt the apology was truly heartfelt. “He came over to my house and he gave me a heartfelt apology. He apologized for bringing me into the whole thing and for everything that happened."

Shields said she accepted the apology and was truly impressed. "Through it all, I was so impressed with how heartfelt it was," she said. "I didn't feel at any time that I had to defend myself, nor did I feel that he was trying to convince me of anything other than the fact that he was deeply sorry. And I accepted it."

The New York Daily News reports that Cruise confirms the apology was made. Cruise's spokesman confirmed the celebrities had made up - though he took the chance to further knock psychiatric drug use. "It is true that his friendship with Ms. Shields has been mended," flack Arnold Robinson said, adding that Cruise "has not changed his position on anti-depressants."
