Tom Cruise was allegedly fired by Paramount over previous criticism of Brooke Shields' use of post-natal anti-depressants.
Paramount boss Sumner Redstone's wife "was enraged" when she heard Cruise's comments on live TV, and warned her husband that Tom's Scientology-inspired tirade is revolting to female fans.
Insiders from Paramount's parent company Viacom claim Redstone's wife has great influence on the decisions of her husband. Viacom spokesman Carl Folta says, "It is true that Mrs. Redstone disagrees with Tom Cruise's views, but she and Mr. Redstone see every Paramount film."
