Well the rumors that he's gay have been going on since Risky Business, so I wouldn't think midlife crisis explains them. Not that you were suggesting it does...
I do know that my appeal to see him in any movie decreased greatly after his half-assed statements about PPD.
I try to separate artist from art. I mostly succeed.
I couldn't bear to watch Woody Allen for a long time, though, and I'd been a huge fan. And then when I got over that and saw "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion" I barely laughed at all and have concluded he's lost his touch.
I still won't see Roman Polanski movies, but I consider that a little different, since he's a fugitive from justice and I don't feel I should support him. Not that I think he's really suffering financially because I won't spend my $10 on a ticket to one of his movies (or, more likely, my $3.00 to see it on video).
Leave it to someone who never suffer through PPD to make such a statement.
It was a particularly unwise example to use to convince people that psychotherapy and antidepressants are not a good idea.
there's also the absence of opposite rumors
Another aspect of the consistency of rumors is the lack of rumors saying the opposite - there aren't lots of tabloid covers of TC with other women, claims he fathered someone's love child, et cetera. Quite different from the Jennifer-Brad-Angelina or Bruce-Demi-Ashton hoopla, for example.

Re: there's also the absence of opposite rumors
That's an interesting thought! Of course, closeted gay celebrities (or, more often, their publicists) often plant such rumors on purpose to throw the public off. Rock Hudson, for example, was styled as a "playboy."
