Bijou Phillips, model and Scientologist extraordinaire, is picking up for Tom Cruise attacking the use of anti-depressants.
During a recent interview with Paper magazine, Phillips went on a long tangent hating on the pills.
“My grandparents didn’t take any pills, and they were fine,” she says. “Just buck up and get over it. Stop being such a (expletive) pansy.”
Ironic coming from a family whose love of pills and other drugs is notorious in the entertainment industry. Bijou is the daughter of John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, whose musical genius was extinguished when he fell into a pit of drug addiction.
Sister Mackenzie Phillips has battled drug addiction since she was 12, and was arrested last year at LAX on charges of cocaine and heroin possession. Bijou herself first attended rehab at 14.
Bijou has been dating former That 70’s Show star Danny Masterson, a fellow Scientologist, since 2000. They appear in Paper together as one of LA’s power couples.
Interesting, since Bijou’s biggest career move was a role in Hostel 2, and Masterson hasn’t done much more than play poker since the end of that show.
But it’s good to see that someone is carrying the Scientology torch for Tom Cruise.
So remember kids, doctor-prescribed drugs are bad, but the ones you buy at night in the warehouse district are A-OK — as long as you’re a Scientologist.
