Cox stays out of Cruise/Shields battle28/07/2005 - 19:30:08
Courteney Cox is refusing to get caught up in Tom Cruise and Brooke Shields' feud, following her revelation that she took medication to help her through postpartum depression.
In May, Cruise - who claims to have helped people fight drug addictions through his controversial Scientology religion - sparked a war of words when he criticised Shields for using anti-depressant Paxil, following the birth of her daughter Rowan.
Celebrities such as Carnie Wilson and Tom Arnold have since spoken out in Shields' defence, while Cruise's fellow Scientologists, including John Travolta's wife Kelly Preston, have backed the actor's argument that women should heal naturally.
But Cox, who last week revealed that she battled depression with the help of medication following the birth of her one-year-old daughter Coco, is staying out of the controversy.
She says of Shields and Cruise's battle: "I'm sorry I missed all that. I heard about it. I think he's a nice guy, and she's a great girl. I can't imagine anyone fighting about something that's… to each his own, my friend."
