    TOM Cruise has claimed he will eat the PLACENTA after fiancée Katie Holmes has their baby.
    The actor, 43 — who wants her to give birth in silence according to his Scientology cult rules — said: “I’m gonna eat the placenta, too.

    “I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m going to eat the cord and the placenta right there.”

    But when a GQ magazine interviewer said it would be a big meal, Cruise replied: “OK, maybe I won’t.”

    I can understand being a little 'strange' to get people's attention and to be interesting, but seriously he should get a better image consultant, who can relate or sympathize, or understand eating a baby's placenta?!

    Its like bloody and gross dude, will he have a grill or giddle and eat it like bacon?

    That's really gross to eat, but then think about how they put it in some hair conditioners. *shudder*

    I read all my labels before I buy! :eek:

    Peyton, I think he's surpassed Michael Jackson weird. Isn't eating placenta kind of cannibalism?

    It's weird to a lot of us (including me), but it is more common then you think. Many cultures see the placenta a a very special organ. Some eat it, some use it as an art piece, some do other things with it. There are even entire cook books of placenta recipes.

    I think many of us who have taken an anthrpology course or two would know that and its important to be respectful of other people's cultures. Some bury it under the house, some eat it, some make it into ointments and others discard it.



    But this is Tom Cruise we're talking about, its just ****ing gross when he does it.

    I just wikipedia'd it, and it seems Katie should be the one to eat it. link
    Prevents post-partum depression, and (at least in animals, but humans really are just more highly-evolved animals) can rid the pain of birth.

    I was in a serious mood and as I read you post I stayed in that mood. Then I got to this last line and I erupted in laughter. I really have to thank you for making my night.

    I wonder how much the tabloids will pay for photos... I can't believe people still pay attention to Cruise.

    That'll be what's behind it then – Tom will have realised that there's a huge market for celebrity cookbooks.

    This is quite putting me off my cereal. :eek:

    Yes, but just not in this one....

    Cruise thinks he can do or say anything and it'll be alright... now that he's an "OT Level 3," but really I think he just makes his religion look bad instead...

    You mean you don't find placenta-eating scientologists at least mildly intriguing?

    Not the least. I don't really care for celebrities at all.
