Seems in the midst of a "Today" show interview with Matt Lauer, repeated questions about Scientology and Cruise's views on psychiatry sent Tom into L. Ron Hubbard mode. The "L," it seems, stands for "Lecture."
A few gems (courtesy of Gawker):
"Yeah but you don’t understand the history of these drugs. And if you do, you know that it masks the problem. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance!"
"You don’t even know what Ritalin is! If you read the papers on how they came up with the drug, the dosage… You should be more responsible in knowing what it is. I am responsible. I know these things."
Cruise also, according to the AP, called Lauer "glib." And at that point, "you're glib" replaced "you're a jerk" in my pantheon of legendary Tom Cruise put-downs. Next week, look for "you're a pest" to rocket up the charts on the back of Cruise's increasing insanity. Which is totally not a chemical imbalance, because there is no such thing as a chemical imbalance.
