Brooke Shields appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in September of 2006 and of course, the topic of her catfight with Tom Cruise came up.
Last year, Tom publicly criticized Brooke for her use of anti-depressants following her first pregnancy. The devout Scientologist said that he truly believed she could have cured her postpartum depression through the use of vitamins and exercise.
Brooke told Jay that Tom "came over to my house and he gave me a heartfelt apology. He apologized for bringing me into the whole thing and for everything that happened," she said. Brooke went on to say, "I was so impressed with how heartfelt it was. And I didn't feel at any time that I had to defend myself, nor did I feel that he was trying to convince me of anything other than the fact that he was deeply sorry. And I accepted it."
Maybe Tom Cruise will make nice with the folks over at Paramount studios who dumped him in August 2006 for his consistently wacky behavior. Ever since he and Katie Holmes became new parents, he seems to have taken a whole new approach to his life. Good luck with that Tom!
