The 70-year-old Cheers actress spoke out on Tucker Carlson Today and babbled on about everything from supporting Donald Trump, getting blacklisted in Hollywood, and somehow paralleled the controversial practice of Scientology to curing mental health issues like depression.

After suggesting "You can be cooking meth and sleeping with hookers, but as long as you didn’t vote for Trump" you'd still be in the good graces of the Hollywood elite, Kirstie explained why she didn't seek professional help while suffering depression. 

"The reason I don't go to a psychiatrist is because in their bag are the drugs, that's the main way they treat people," she told the conservative show host.

"I just want someone to go like, 'What's going on?" And you say, 'Blah blah,' and find out," Kirstie added.

The actress didn't hesitate to talk about her controversial views on mental health.

"You aren't really allowed to say this in the very liberal community because they think what you're saying is stigmatizing mental illness," she began.

"Well this is what I’m here to say. I don't think you're mentally ill if you're depressed."

Revealing she suffered depression at just 7 years old after losing her grandfather, Kirstie believes it's Scientology that helped her cope.

"In Scientology, that is part of it and what you do is you find out why you're so screwed up," she said. "And you find out why are you depressed; there's a reason people are depressed."

She also stood firm on her stance that marijuana should not be legalized.  

"I have friends, this is the saddest thing in the world to me, they smoke weed with their kid and then their kid starts doing heroin or the kid overdoses," she told Tucker.

Interestingly enough, Kirstie's latest comments on Scientology come in the midst of fellow Scientologist Danny Masterson's rape case.

The That 70's Show actor faced off his rape accuser in court on Tuesday.

She broke down on the stand while explaining the night he allegedly fed her with cocktails, put her near-lifeless body in the shower, then proceeded to reportedly raped her before pulling a gun out to threaten her. 

The woman -- who was a Scientologist at the time -- claims she went to the church and asked permission to report the incident to cops and was denied.
