Tom Cruise, 44, who criticised Brooke Shields, 41, for using drugs to cure post-partum depression, has recently apologized for saying that. Shields said on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno that he "came over to my house and he gave me a heartfelt apology. And he apologized for bringing me into the whole thing and for everything that happened.

And through it all, 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." Cruise’s rep said, "It is true that his friendship with Ms. Shields has been mended. He has not changed his position about antidepressants, which are unhealthy."

Shields suffered from post-partum depression after giving birth to daughter Rowan in May 2003. So far she says she has not experienced any depression after giving birth to her daughter Grier.
