TOM Cruise yesterday revealed his latest bizarre mission..to eat his new baby’s placenta.
Cruise vowed he would tuck in straight after girlfriend Katie Holmes gives birth, saying he thought it would be “very nutritious”.
The Mission Impossible star, 43, said: “I’m gonna eat the placenta. I thought that would be good. Very nutritious. I’m gonna eat the cord and the placenta right there.” It is the latest in a series of increasingly strange outbursts from Cruise in the run-up to the birth.
Cruise, who has two adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman, will not be the first star to make a meal out of his baby’s placenta.
Rod Stewart and girlfriend Penny Lancaster took home their baby’s placenta, sprinkled it with tee tree oil and buried it in the garden.
In 1998, Channel 4 chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall fried a placenta with shallots and garlic and served it up to 20 guests, including the baby’s mum and dad.
TV watchdogs later criticised the show, branding it “disagreeable”.
