Cruise Speaks On Travolta Death

| Filed under: John TravoltaTom Cruise

wenn2224641.jpg

With all the recent talk about the tragic death of John Travolta's 16-year-old - son along with Scientology leaders having to defend their "religion" - it was only a matter of time before Tom Cruise spoke out.

In an interview with the ladies of The View taped Thursday, Cruise talked about the loss of Jett Travolta. He said, "It's horrific. It's just horrific. Here you have a man, both of them doting parents, they're wonderful people and …"

But of course he also speaks out in defense of Scientology. And in reference to the statement that Scientology discourages the use of certain medications and medical care, Tom has his own opinions.

Cruise says, "That's just not true. It's actually false. They say, 'Get your physical, get your medication, get your physical illnesses handled.'"

Sounds a bit contradictory to the comments Cruise had once made about Brooke Shields using medication to treat her postpartum depression. Oh, right, that's a "mental" illness.

As for Jett and his parents, Cruise says, "I remember Jett when he was born. I saw him when he was just a few months old and John just adored him, and both of his children, and Kelly. I just don't have the words for it."

Tom's episode will air this Friday.

    Why people get so fanatic with most religions and other practices. Religious people like to condem others, kill others, hate others and do other nasty things to other people just to because they thing they are right and everyone else is wrong. We all were created ( born ) in the same way and we are going to die one day. God has the last word on that !! Got it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    well I'm not a scientologist, but what they're putting out there is very carefully worded. They've said repeatedly this past week that physical conditions should be treated. But from what I understand, they do not consider autism or other similar disorders to be physical conditions. They consider them mental disorders and they do not treat mental disorders, hence Tom's attack on Brooke for her postpartum depression.

    TOM LOOKS DEATHLY ILL!



  20. 20

    The difference is MARIO that postpartum and autism are considered by Scientology to be MENTAL illnesses not physical, so he is not contradicting himself here, but he isn't denying either that Scientology might not allow medication for autism. I'm not sure if that is what Jett had though, just saying that Scientology is ok with medication for physical illnesses. Use some thought process Mario, you have to be somewhat smart.

  23. 23

    LeonA'$ GhO$t Patroness of The Arts!, Why are you so concerned about what Tom says? He is expressing his feeling about a Jett and the family's lost. Why are you so concerned about how someone describes something? The fact of the matter is someone child is dead.



  24. 24

    He looks like Katie Holmes.



  25. 25

    another incidence of you either not knowing the truth or just flat out lying. scientologists do not say use NO medication, they are against medication for psychiatric purposes, which I think is dead on.



  26. 26

    Oh man, one of $cientology's biggest critics just filed suit today against them in California for paying slave wages (74 cents/hour) to their workers. $hit is going to hit the fan! They've been doing this for decades. The back pay alone should wipe out the damn cult! Yay!! We'll be seeing more of Tommy Girl, I'm sure. hahahahahahaha What a douche.

    LG - THANKS MADAM! BRILLIANT PRéCIS!

    Dear Perez,

    Please try to understand that much beloved TomKat was not trying to be mean to Brooke Shields. He said what he said to her based on his info on Prozac like drugs.

    It is factually correct that there was and is a money greed driven industry that markets the idea that everyone and their mother should be on some type of psychotropic drug. It is exactly the same tactics used back in the day to hook people on cigarettes.

    Tom was not saying the drugs are evil he was trying to say that the motives behind the massive marketing of drugs to treat postpartum depression are essentially driven by greed and dishonesty.

    For example a simple lab test can show what vitamins and minerals are lacking in the postpartum new mother. A woman can eat better takes the needed vitamin supplements and most important get sufficient exercise and her body can return to normal serotonin on its own

    If Scientology is against drugging everyone in society for so-called "mental" disorders then sign me up. But I'm happy being a vicarious scientologist for now :)

    The fact alone that John and Kelly Travolta handled the tragic death of their son with such dignity and compassion and did not allow their son to become a media frenzy shows to me that Scientology has served the Travolta's very well indeed.

    With that Perez I sincerely hope you are not on mind altering drugs. We like you just the way you are

    cheers:)

    UGH! All these damn $cientologists' statements are infuriating and cloak the truth in semantics. Yes, they get medical treatment for medical issues. What they continue to omit is that they do not consider autism a medical issue, but rather a psychological or mental one, as are seizure disorders, and thus they do NOT get treatment for such other than stupid $cientology cleansings and vitamins. IT IS UTTERLY CRIMINAL. They - the Cult, Lisa Marie, Tom - are hiding behind clever wording. FYI: The Ocala, FL district attorney is looking into this matter and the Bahamian coroners office is cooperating; they are sorting out medical documents and jurisdiction, but the DA's office believes criminal parental neglect has taken place and they are pursuing substantiating their case.

    p.s. Tom's had a face-lift - and a very good one at that.



  30. 30

    I'm sure he is sad about Jett but he's still a famewhore trying to make it back from the days of couch-jumping (I love Katie!) and Brooke Shields bashing. Things for him will just never be "right" again.

  32. 32

    Leave this entire situation alone. The Travoltas just experienced the worst possible thing anyone could ever go through. You're not helping the situation. Let them be. I don't care if Tom is talking about it. It is none of your business and you speaking about it is an insult to a grieving family.

  44. 44

    I know for a fact these fucks classify autism as a 'mental' disorder and therefore, do no allow their members to seek medication or treatment from a Dr. Tom knows all about Jett but would rather protect his piece of shit friend David M. from the fallout over the cults policy. As said before, they like to keep their shiiiittt on the hussshhhh. We're not even supposed to know about Xenu until we've paid 75,000 and reached OT III for Xenu's sake!!! Damn us informed people for knowing what the fuck scientology is up to and placing the blame where it belongs!!!

    Hey Tom, instead of making trash movies like "Lions for Lambs" and "Valkyrie" and making your wife stay at home all day while you act like a nutcase, why don't you wake up and see what the real world has to go through. Not everyone is a bad actor who makes lots of money. People out there do have real problems they have to deal with. And sometimes they need medication. Whats really the worst part of this is that John Travolta tried to hide Jett from everyone like he was ashamed of him, how come he always went to award shows with his daughter and not his son? He's going to have to live with that till he hits the grave.

    You know what Perez, this is really ahole of you to do. You were just on that show talking about how you only report the truth and here you are spinning this "story" Tom Cruise was scheduled to be on that show before Jett's death. Barbara Walters being the gossip drama queen ratings whore that she is badgered him into answering that question on Jett and would not let it go. It was completely uncool and inappropriate of her. He has already said the didn't want to talk about his religion anymore and she brought it up, not Tom, not at all. She started with the accusations about the Travoltas not allowing medicine and Tom just said that is untrue.
    I feel such disgust that people like you do things like this. It's just a flat out lie. You should feel disgust with yourself for putting that kind of lie out there. It is way to easy. Do you think you can't get viewers on the site with the truth? So you have to tell these lies?



  54. 54

    Did you notice how very careful he was in saying that Scientology tells people to get treated for PHYSICAL ailments. Of course, we know Tommy and his "church" don't advocate the same for phsychological issues. There is some question whether autism falls under the physical or phsychological. Does anyone know?

  56. 56

    Tom is being very slippery. Yes, medical concerns can be treated but things defined as mental illness by $cientolgy..no treatment for those poor souls. There are certain celebs that you just know have heapin' helpin' of IQ points. Tom is not on the list. STFU Tom.



  57. 57

    Physical illness, they will treat. Mental illness, not so much. The Travolta's won't come and say that Jett had a mental illness. They turned it into physical because there are seizures involved.

    But.. I'd love to get Tom's take on autism these days. Although he didn't turn to Scientology until his marriage to Mimi Rogers, he did have quite the starring role alongside Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. I'd love to find some old interviews and promotions from Tom when that movie came out, show them to him today, and ask him if his thoughts have changed since becoming involved in Scientology.



  58. 58

    He was young and tender once.
    About 25 years ago.
    Oh……teeheehee…..and it was actually more than once.

    in response to earlier posts…

    I agree that Tom's looking extra hot these days. My guess is he's recently had some freshening up and, if so, they did an excellent job. He looks good, not all weird or plastic. But he's still a freak.

    And btw, I'm happily on mind altering drugs. Don't knock it till you try it! LOL

  64. 64

    I hope that John or Kelly don't develop depression after the death of their beloved son since scientologists don't believe in antidepressants.

    Re: venuspower – WHILE I TOO AM EXTREMELY SADDENED BY THE TRAVOLTA'S LOSS, I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER IF THIS WACKY MADE UP FAITH THEY FOLLOW DIDN'T KEEP THEM FROM SEEKING PROPER TREATEMENT FOR THEIR SON'S OBVIOUS MENTAL DISORDERS. LEONA IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT IN HER INSISTANCE THAT IT IS AN EVIL ORGANIZATION, AND YOUR DEFENSE OF THE KULT OF SCIENTOLOCRAP IS POSITIVELY REPUGNANT, AND MAKES ME CURIOUS AS TO WHICH SCIENTOLOCRAP CENTER YOU WROTE YOUR POST FROM….BTW LEONA…I COMPLETELY AGREE, QUEEN TOMMY THE POWER BOTTOM LOOKS QUITE ILL.

    You can see tom in the buff in "all the right moves" if you have a reasonable dvd player you can stop frame it to see the cruise willy..looks to be short and fat by the pics..but then there just HAS to be some guy who knows what it looks like up close…..what does Lie n' tology say about the gays? hmm?



  70. 70

    Tom has every right to make a statement about his friend. Also, Scientology does not believe in aliens. Its a belief in the soul and that the soul has not been stuck on planet earth for as long as the soul has been around. It would not make sense. Just leave the religion alone, if you want to know about it, find out about it for yourself by reading a book. Try Dianetics. Otherwise, I know for a fact that medical treatment is accepted by the Church. What isnt accepted is MIND ALTERING DRUGS like Prozac or Ritalin which make zombies out of people and are only given to these made up "sicknesses" for a profit. You know psychiatry came up with the brilliant disorder of PMDD.. hmmm. If you have PMS, you know have a disease. Havent woman had PMS since man was on earth. Why now all of a sudden is it a disease. I think thats more concerning.



  71. 71

    Cruise and all the other celebrity/scientologists that are defending Travolta need to take a Break. He should have quit after he sliced and diced Brooke Shields over her post partum depression. Tom is still a little boy playing dress up in the movies. Every time he opens his mouth he puts his dainty little foot in it. Good luck to poor Katie Holmes though; he stated that he wanted 10 more turkey baster conceived children.



  72. 72

    "…..get your physical illnesses handled.'….PHYSICAL Not MENTAL…the boy was autistic….but he is dead and we leave that alone.
    The principal being argued is the sciencreeptologist denial of people suffering from mental ailments and treating it with snake oil and alien chanting in a sauna.

    Scientology….when people feel lost they look for answers. People who are looking for answers are vulnerable. The Dalai Lama teaches that TRUTH is like gold….if it is cut and it is gold through out…it is truth. Christianity posit that one must "try the spirit to see if it from God"….if it weathers the trial it is truth… the C of $ does not allow allow such challenges…it is arguementative, the rules it's followers (and critics) with threats of ex-communication, law suits and death. Then the Cof $ has the audacity to claim WE are glib and we are critical? All the more people will be cynical to your ungrounded adoration to follow a drug addled science fiction writer.



  73. 73

    I don't mean to be insensitive to the Travolta family, but all I thought about when seeing Tom speak on the subject was:
    "Boy, he has had a really good facelift very recently!"
    Tom looks totally different now, dont' you think?



  74. 74

    Re: DKGIRL33 – Children with ADHD or Autism who needs drugs like Ritilan or their counterparts do NOT have a "mental disorder." Autism and ADHD are serious problems that effect every aspect of the child's life. Treatment is essential…or they wind up helpless in life or dead. I have two such children and I know of what I speak. I would never leave my children untreated. They have a treatable condition it is is my responsibility to make sure they are taken care of. As for Mental illness, that is SERIOUS business…why should someone need your permission for seeking help? Everyone needs to treat their problems. You don't like Prozac…no one is asking YOU to take it!
