Cruise: I will eat placenta
The Evening Standard ^ | April 18, 2006 | Staff

Posted on 04/18/2006 2:23:24 AM PDT by MadIvan

Hollywood actor Tom Cruise is planning to eat his new baby's placenta, it emerged today.

It is the latest in a series of unusual revelations by the 43-year-old Mission Impossible star about the child he is expecting with fiancee Katie Holmes.

He told GQ magazine: "I'm gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I'm gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there."

Cruise has also claimed he knew actress Holmes, 27, was pregnant, even before she told him.

A follower of Scientology, he has defended the religion's belief that women should give birth in silence.

"It's really about respecting the woman. It's not about her not screaming," he has told GQ.

Cruise, who also believes he can cure drug addicts, plans to marry Holmes in the summer. He said earlier this month that their baby was due "any day now".

I realise he lives in Hollywood, but surely this behaviour crosses into the deranged, even for them.

I think I am going to throw up.

And then will he start gnawing on the baby for the main course?

Why is he waiting to marry her? Does he need to be sure she has the baby without screaming first?
What a despicable, sick excuse for mankind.

I believe he said this tongue in cheek. I mean Scientology is strange, but I have been around a few of them, and they aren't THAT strange.

It wouldn't surprise me if Matt and Trey were working on it, yes. Cruise became stranger than one of their episodes about him, now they have to catch up.

This pregnancy reminds me of "Rosemary's Baby'. There were a bunch of wackos involved in that also.

This is NOY what I needed to read this morning!

I will tell you why he is waiting to marry herre. If that baby is born with any sort of birth defect, he is going to drop her and beat feet. If I remember correctly, Scientologists don't believe in caring for the disabled. Hence, Terry Schiavo. (Schiavo's attorney is a big wig in the Scientologist movement.)

I had already reached the point where I couldn't bear to watch a Tom Cruise movie...now this.

I don't believe it of course, I mean even Tom Cruise wouldn't tell the world he was going to do something so revolting. But wait....he did star in that Vampire movie.

Personally, I never thought she was all that hot.

But if you look close, she kinda reminds you of a female Tom Cruise.

Actually, though, if he's all hungry for the placenta, maybe he should be blond(e) instead...












I just can't figure it, these people get to end up worth millions

Kind of reminds me of that horror who kidnapped that ten year-old girl and was fixing to eat her.

"And then will he start gnawing on the baby for the main course?" >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Cruise is a sick puppy. Perhaps he has succumbed to the theory now popular in some scientific circles that stem cells can grow to replace any cell in the body. The problem is that he will be digesting the placenta and cord instead of getting the cells into a location via injection where they might do his brain some good. Obviously anything would be an improvement, including a total lobotomy.

Tom Cruise will never marry this poor woman, and she is lucky for that.He is a middle aged man seeking life extension treatment. What a megalomanic idiot!

Obviously not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Cruise is either a complete genius or completely out of his mind. He's taken a franchise that's earned billions of dollars with the potential to earn a few hundred million more and painted it wacko...

Another renowned Scientologist, John Travolta, also flies and collects planes. Coincidence, or tenet of the faith?

Nothing surprises me any more.

Hadn't thought about it before, but you're right. This whole Cruise-Holmes-Baby-Scientology thing definitely has a Rosemary's Baby air to it.

Sounds like they almost expect this baby to be the second coming of L. Ron Hubbard.

You don't think Tom's leaning toward naming the baby, L. Ron, do you?

Or will they go the "weird" route and name the baby, "Anexya", or something like that? How about "Clear"?

Here Tom...some recipes...

Placenta Cocktail: 1/4 cup raw placenta 8oz V-8 juice 2 ice cubes 1/2 cup carrot. Blend at high speed for 10 seconds Placenta Lasagne: Use your favorite Lasagne recipe and substitute this mixture for one layer of cheese. In 2 tbl. olive oil, quickly saute meat of 3/4 placenta, ground or minced; plus 2 sliced cloves of garlic, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/2 diced onion & 2 tbl. tomato paste, or 1 whole tomato.

Placenta Spaghetti: Cut meat of 3/4 placenta into bite size pieces, then brown quickly in 1 tbl. butter plus 1 tbl. oil. Then add 1 large can tomato puree, 2 cans crushed pear tomatoes, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tbl. molasses, 1 bay leaf, 1 tbl. rosemary, 1 tsp. ea. of salt, honey, oregano, basil, and fennel. Simmer 1 1/2 hours.

Placenta Stew: Meat of 3/4 placenta in bite size chunks, 1 potato (cubed), 1/4 cup fresh parsley, 2 carrots, 3 ribs celery, 1 zucchini, 1 large tomato, 1 small onion. Dredge meat in 1 tbl. flour mixed with 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. paprika, pinch of cloves, pinch of pepper, 6-8 crushed coriander seeds. Saute meat in 2 tbl. oil, then add vegetables (cut up) and 4-5 cups of water. Bring to full boil, then simmer for 1 hour.

Placenta Pizza: Grind placenta. Saute in 2 tbl. olive oil with 4 garlic cloves, then add 1/4 tsp. fennel, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. thyme, and 1/4 cup of wine. Allow to stand for 30 minutes, then use with your favorite home made pizza recipe. It's a fine placenta sausage topping.

Placenta Roast: All "food" should be properly cleaned prior to cooking, and all "food" should be properly cooked prior to eating. This is a good recipe for placenta, which should NOT go to waste: INGREDIENTS: 1 to 3 lb. placenta no more than 3 days old 1 large onion 1 large green or red pepper (green will add color to the presentation) 1 cup tomato sauce 1 sleeve of saltine crackers 1 tsp crab or shrimp seasoning 1 tsp black pepper 1 tsp white pepper 1 clove garlic (roasted and minced)

Cruise just gives me the creeps. I feel sorry for the girl. I feel REALLY sorry for the baby.
As someone that has had (unfortunately)a bit of experience with the cult thing, I know that this will have a bad outcome.

He told GQ magazine: "I'm gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I'm gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there."

This can't be true!!! OMG - he's insane!!!

Is there actually proof he said this (like it's published and linkable in GQ mag)

He's a freaking cannibal, Katie Holmes should run for her life and her baby's.

Hey, maybe Cruise could have Katie give birth while strapped down to the wing while in flight, he walks out on the wing ala Mission Impossible to retrieve the baby AND placenta, slips the newborn infant into a parachute to send it on down to paramedics waiting below at Scientology headquarters, and he can snack on the placenta on his way back to the airport, and by that time, Katie will have screamed herself out and all Cruise has left to do is to belch, fart and go home to take a nap.

Say, maybe *I* should be writing for South Park eh? ;)

I still think it's like he's marrying his sister. Dam, he had Nicole and couldn't make her happy. Then he's talkin placenta, what's next? Spleen? Toenails? This is just too damn weird for me.

Old man lying by the side of the road
With the lorries rolling by,
Blue moon sinking from the weight of the load
And the building scrape the sky,
Cold wind ripping down the allay(sic) at dawn
And the morning paper flies,
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes.

Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burning,
Find someone who's turning
And you will come around.
