Bijou Phillips knows the history of psychiatry, you don’t!

January 23rd, 2009 // 162 Comments

In a recent interview with Paper Magazine, Scientologist Bijou Phillips went off on psychiatric medication, basically telling everybody with depression to just man up. Us Weekly reports:

“My grandparents didn’t take any pills, and they were fine,” Phillips said in the February issue of Paper. “Just buck up and get over it. Stop being such a f—king pansy.”

The budding actress frequents Scientology-sponsored events and spoke out against psychiatry and prescribing patients with medication for such mental illnesses as depression or anxiety.

Yeah, I usually find the best treatment for people with depression is to call them a fucking pansy as well. Because no amount of medication or psychiatric help can compete with just telling somebody to stop being depressed. It works for other things too. Just the other day I saw a guy running around on fire screaming for help and I was like “Hey, quit it!” So then he fell to the ground, stopped moving, and the fire eventually went out. I never saw him again once the paramedics pulled the white sheet over his face, but I bet he’s doing great now.

    Who is this no-named cunt? Who cares about this fake Scientology anyway?

    Yeah, I’m sure in her perfect world where she has money, and not a thing to worry about except where she’s going to get her anus bleached that mantra works. But for people like me who are pretty poor and not alot of options in life anxiety and depression is a powerful thing. It really sucks when you wake up every day with no sense of self worth and only looking forward to going to sleep to get away from it all.
    What a douchebag.

    Ok, I looked her up, she is a no named cunt. So, she was in some move, “a Career to Nowhere” a movie about her, and had an album, “I’d rather eat glass” Probably everybody’s thought after listening to it as well.
    I thought you had to have more money to be into Scientology. Those dipshits are reaching low in this crappy economy I guess.

  4. wtf

    is this the girl that got tagged team in havoc?

    cause I usually like to get my medical advice from someone who isn’t a doctor let alone someone who is basically one giant epic fail in her actual job.

    man fuck this stupid bitch. those who don’t believe in medication for psychological or personality disorders, clearly have never lived with anyone who suffers on a day-to-day basis. don’t talk about shit you don’t understand.

    She’s the chick that gets dual-primed in Havoc, that’s who she is.

    —-

    In any case, it’s clear that she’s just another Scientology cunt-rag. How anyone can take this business seriously is beyond me…in its way, it’s more repugnant than the traditional religions.

  11. P

    Ok so she is nothing more than a rich H-wood party girl and she thinks depression meds are for losers?
    Hey Stank Ho – all that BLOW you snort is no different you fucking moron. You and your party girl friends are all doing the same thing, you just buy your shit from a drug dealer not a pharmacist.

  12. Dirk Diggler

    I can’t help but notice that while she mentions her grandparent not using pills, she doesn’t mention her parents. Perhaps that’s because he father was the biggest amateur pharmacist of the 60′s, John Phillips from The Mamas and the Papas.

    For those of you too young or attention deficit challenged to remember Bijou Phillips was basically the Paris Hilton of the mid-late 90s. Someone famous simply for being famous who partied hard and did a lot of naughty stuff to get attention. The main difference being that Bijou was more of a scenester (the 90s indie-film scene) who never broke mainstream(ie make a sex tape and put it on the internet for the whole world to see her scrawny chicken ass).

    She fell off the face of the earth just around the time a certain duo of spoiled, racist hotel heiresses that look like alien chicken people started pushing their way onto the scene. Hopefully ten years from now no one will know who the hell Paris is either. That probably won’t be the cast but one can dream.

    Why is it that men spend their entire life in the pursuit of that part of the female anatomy… then use a derogatory trem for said body part to insult woman.

    All I can say is… #1 & 3 with the stupid name… YOU ARE A DICK!

  15. manmdy

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    wow, she’s so beautiful!!!
    Wanna join a hot and heated forum that discusses the truth about these big stars?
    ++++ A g e l e ss Ma t e C om ++++++ has lots of sports fans there! besides, it’s hot cou gars, mi lfs, sex y chick s and handsome young men and chi cks min gle club!!LOL checka!!

  16. Frank

    This bitch needs to be raped. Then we’ll see if she can “man up” and move on with her life.

  17. silverfar

    Her GRANDparents may not have popped pills … But her DADDY (John Phillips of the Mamas And The Papas) was the KING of pill poppers. Her family history is LOADED with drug addiction. WTF? Where does she get off advising others?!!!

  18. Gangreenuts

    This vapid cunt needs to die by fire. I would enjoy bring about 12 or 15 guys to brutally gang rape her over a period of several days, then kill her pets in front of her, then forcing her to eat their remains. Then we can see if she can “man up” and go on through the rest of her life chipper and worry free!

  19. glenn

    I agree with dirk- funny how she doesn’t mention her parents who were both junkies.

  20. your mom

    It’s wonderful that her grandparents didn’t pass down the genetic precursors to mental ilness, but that “curse” is also a blessing. Some of the most brilliant and innovative people in the world have been afflicted with mental illness (many scientists believe that Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso suffered from bipolar disorder).

    For so many people,mental illness is chemical and cannot be treated with verbal therapy, much less through pretending we are all aliens. While I do think mood-altering drugs are over-prescribed in this country, it is ignorant and grossly naive to say that NO ONE needs them.

    Nerd rage is scary here. It distracted me from my original thought of, “The only thing more irrelevant then this opinion is the chick who said it.”

    Didn’t we get this whole line of reasoning from the king of Scientology? Look how well that worked out for him and his career.

  24. Barack Yomama

    Yeah, I could see why a chick who admitted she was doing coke, fucking anything that moved, and chowing out chicks at bars when she was 15 would not want to go see psychiatrist. Anyway, this bitch is the reason the phrase “Tits or Get The Fuck Out” was invented … so TOGTFO !

  25. KoT

    I’m not a nutcase scientologist but I agree … depression is for fucking pussies!

    Man up! Life is full of ups and downs. Become accountable for your life!

  26. soprano

    It’s nice to see that the Superfish and so many commenters understand that you don’t get over a chemical imbalance just by “bucking up.” What a stupid comment from a stupid celebrity …

  27. Balack Obama Fixin' America, 1 Nigga at a time

    I never heard of Havoc but if she is being the human finger cuff in it, I’ll have to go rent it :)

  28. Caitlin

    I will never ever remember what her face looks like.

  29. Jeff

    I have to agree with her. People use this as an excuse. All of these people on ADHD drugs and depression. It gives them comfort to think they have a “disease” so they don’t have to deal with the pain of actually doing something.

    Make steps to make your life better, some drug isn’t going to do it for you.

  30. Average guy

    Who is this person?

    Who cares about her bubble-headed opinions?

  31. Casey

    Jeff, you’re an idiot. Taking drugs is a step towards making life better. Anyone who has ever taken antidepressants knows that it’s only the first step. The next step is getting therapy, dealing with your issues, making changes in your life. No one just takes antidepressants and sits back and relaxes, that’s what people like you think. You’re wrong.

  32. Amanda

    Superficial Guy, I think I’m in love with you. Marry me?

  33. Dorito Man

    Wow! She’s cute as a button. No seriously. She’s gorgeous.

  34. Funeral Guy

    I think I’m schizophrenic too. One the one hand I think Bijou’s a fine piece of ass that I would like to give a long slow ride in the sack. On the other hand, I laughed my ass off when she got tortured and scalped in Hostel II. Do you think I need meds?

  35. Zack

    She’ll see the light after a permanently disfiguring rape.

  36. TehDevil

    Has she been in a movie where she does NOT get naked?

    Oh well, thinking about that made my anxiety go away.

  37. timmy the dying boy

    Time to update my “dumb cunt” list again.

  38. Jennifer

    for bijou and all the (very few) posters who disagree with antidepressants you disgust me thorougly

    no antidepressants are not the solution so all you do is pop a pill and everythings fine but they are, as Casey said, the very first step that can make a tremendous difference in someone’s life

    when you’re so depressed and can hardly move or get out of bed, you can’t do the typical therapies (i.e. CBT) or take action to make life better because you’re physical chemistry is affecting you too much

    the antidepressants make it so you can wake up and shower for a change and actually start making the behavioural changes that will make your life better which you couldn’t do before

    antidepressant medication is not for everyone, but the people who say “get over it” are disgusting people who obviously have no clue what it is like to be so depressed you don’t have the strength to move. you should NOT by any means be talking about or judging something you obviously have no clue about

  39. sunshine

    “After the Mamas and the Papas broke up, John’s life went into a tailspin. He was hooked on heroin, cocaine, amphetamines, and alcohol. He admits in his autobiography, “Papa John” that he often got high with his teenage daughter, MacKenzie, who was now a star on the television series “One Day at a Time.” Finally, a drug bust in the early eighties pushed him and his wife, Genevieve Waite, into drug therapy. In recent years he has claimed sobriety and toured with a new version of the Mamas and the Papas–himself, Denny Doherty, MacKenzie, and Spanky McFarlane.” Oh yeah, he was so fine.

    27% of kids in public schools in California are on some type of medication for emotional/mental/psychological disorders. If you think a pill can fix shyness, then dismiss what Bijou says. Then go stand in front of a mirror and call yourself an idiot and take a pill to overcome being a fool…..

  41. I hear that she eats marshmellows

  42. Harlow

    #29 die by fire faggot!

  43. I know what will cure me of my depression, if I see her naked in all her movies!!! How about just watch people doing it or do it yourself!

  44. Balack Obama Fixin' America, 1 Nigga at a time

    The only thing all you whiners need to get over your depression is one pill. Just some lead. In between the eyes, or if you prefer, put the gun in your mouth.
    But you can’t because you are a pussy and that is why you are depressed anyway, because you are a pussy.
    Nobody wants to be around your depressed ass so grow up and get over the fact that the world doesn’t revolve around you.
    You should be happy, Obama promised you a check.
    Oh shit, maybe it’s just Republicans that are depressed! That would make more sense! I’m not depressed. He is a miserable failure and everyone get so see him fail daily and publicly. Best thing EVER!

    Have you ever worked with the kids who are on those medications? I agree that some things are way over diagnosed. However, I have worked with a child who was so shy that she would literally shake and cry during class. She worked with a therapy dog so she would feel a little better (she was a 6th grader), and eventually got some anxiety drugs. She is doing so much better now because she has this help, but that isn’t to say she isn’t doing anything herself…she works hard to still keep herself under control. She told me she doesn’t like taking pills because she doesn’t like swallowing things that are whole, but she knows it makes her feel better and have more control over her life. So do you want to tell this 11 year old girl to just buck up and get over it? People like you need to stop talking if you have never experienced it yourself.

  46. Pathetic Worm

    Stop being so fucking mental, Bijou.

    Tits out for the lads?

  47. twhite

    what a cunt. yeah, just “stop being depressed”. good advice. go fade back into obscurity where you belong

  48. James

    I absolutely 100% agree with her. Big Pharma has a grapple on everyone, and medication of depression and what not is asinine in most cases. Not all cases, most cases.

  49. Jim

    #44 (and all your clones) – “Nobody wants to be around your depressed ass so grow up and get over the fact that the world doesn’t revolve around you.
    You should be happy, Obama promised you a check.
    Oh shit, maybe it’s just Republicans that are depressed! That would make more sense! I’m not depressed. He is a miserable failure and everyone get so see him fail daily and publicly. Best thing EVER!”

    Take your own advice – Obama won decisively and a huge majority of Americans support him now and expect him to lead. Instead of rooting for him to fail, “grow up and get over the fact that the world doesn’t revolve around you” and your rigid political beliefs.

  50. robert doosh

    i mostly agree with her, except the whole scientology-based angle of it.

    that being said, what a SILF.
