Tom Cruise has a serious side, a downright sternness that took the world by surprise during a Today show interview in June 2005. Tom Cruise had recently spoken out against psychiatric drugs, as used by Brooke Shields to deal with postpartum depression, and Matt Lauer asked him about those comments. What followed was roughly five minutes of a passionate debate in which Cruise showed his opinions on the “pseudoscience” of psychiatry, his belief that there is no such thing as a chemical imbalance, his knowledge of the drugs used in those circles and his frustration with a “glib” Lauer. After the dust settled, Cruise personally apologized to Shields, and he returned for a calm interview with Lauer on the Today show three years later.
