Brooke Shields Talks Tom Cruise Feud & Giving Birth At The Same Time As Katie Holmes!

Brooke Shields and Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes

Oh, now this is interesting!

Brooke Shields stopped by Jenny McCarthy‘s SiriusXM show on Wednesday, and these ladies were not holding anything back while taking a stroll down memory lane.

The Endless Love star had been connected to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in the past, and she’s letting us know what she really thinks about the former flames.

To catch you up, it all started back in 2005 when the 50-year-old and Cruise had a public feud after the Edge of Tomorrow star slammed Shields for endorsing prescription medication for treating postpartum depression in her book Down Came the Rain.

Fast forward to now, the mom of two steers clear of drama:

“Life is too short. I’m sure there are people that have strong, negative opinions about me, but I don’t have the time.”

Yes, honey! Too blessed to be stressed!

But back then, Cruise obviously felt like he needed to right his wrongs after he publicly called Brooke “irresponsible” in the media:

“He came over to my house. It was funny because when he called me, he said, ├óΓé¼╦£I’d like to have a sit-down and a talk with you.’ I called my publicist, and I said, ├óΓé¼╦£OK, what do I do?’ She said, ├óΓé¼╦£Whatever you do, don’t go over there. Just make them come to you, and it’s on your terms. You don’t have cameras that you don’t know. So he came over to the house and didn’t come with anybody, drove himself, there wasn’t anybody outside.”

The “cameras” being a reference to Tom’s relationship with Scientology.

After the dust was settled, Cruise’s then-fianc├â┬⌐e Katie Holmes invited Brooke to their 2006 wedding in Italy — which McCarthy also attended with her now-ex Jim Carrey:

“She said, ‘It just wouldn’t feel right without you there,’ And I said ├óΓé¼╦£OK, I’ll bring the something old, as long as it’s not me!’ And she said, ├óΓé¼╦£would you?'”

Wow! Brooke Shields provided the “something old” at TomKat’s wedding… who would’ve thunk it??

The Suddenly Susan remembered it being extremely difficult to deliver the antique enamel compact to the bride before the ceremony:

“I felt like I was 007, or I was Bourne. It was so much security. It was all dark, and it was quiet.”


For the people who questioned Shield’s intentions for attending the wedding after all the drama — well, they obviously weren’t invited:

“People were so up in arms about my saying yes. And I said, ├óΓé¼╦£First of all, if you get invited to that wedding, you go.’ And I had no malice in my heart. It was still a wedding.”

Can you blame her??? Hell yeah we are going to that wedding.

Even Jenny chimed in saying she wanted to breakup with Jim before the big day but he was her invite! LOLz!

But that’s not her only memory with the now-exes. Turns out, Shields’ second daughter with husband Chris Henchy was born on the same day as little Miss Suri Cruise:

“Nobody had seen the baby, so who knew that the baby existed? Except for the fact that Suri was born the same date, same hospital as Grier. I walked into the hospital at four in the morning, and there are these people walking out with umbrellas. I said, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh what are they doing?’ And Chris, my husband, said, ├óΓé¼╦£Maybe they have that disease like they can’t get the sun.’ And I said, ├óΓé¼╦£Why would you transfer at 5 a.m.? It’s so close to sun time.’ We get upstairs and I look out the window, and there’s helicopters and movie cameras, news cameras outside. And I’m like ├óΓé¼╦£This is an outrage! Who alerted the media? Can’t I just have a baby?’ And the nurse comes in, she’s like, ├óΓé¼╦£Honey, it’s not for you.'”
