Cruise Concedes 'Katie Can Have Drugs'
TOM CRUISE has slammed reports he is rigidly imposing his Scientology beliefs on pregnant fiancee KATIE HOLMES, insisting a silent, drug-free birth is just a guideline. Speaking on ABC's PRIMETIME, to be aired tonight (14APR06), the TOP GUN star admits the impending delivery still "feels a little unreal" but he is adamant his expectations for Holmes are fair. He says, "She does what she's gotta do. A quiet birth is basically just respecting the mother. "If she needs medicine, she needs medicine." Earlier this week (begs10APR06), Cruise launched another attack on the use of psychiatric drugs, admitting he finds their prescription "a little suspect".
