    I'm normally skeptical of things like this, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if it were true.

    Writer: Mel Gibson spewed anti-Semitism, talked of killing ex
    By Josh Levs, CNN

    ...In discussing Jewish people, Gibson regularly used the terms "Hebes," "oven-dodgers," and "Jew-boys," Eszterhas alleges. "You said most 'gatekeepers' of American companies were 'Hebes' who 'controlled their bosses.'"

    "You said the Holocaust was 'mostly a lot of horse*****,'" the letter says, adding that Gibson made various false accusations, including that the Torah refers to sacrificing Christian babies.

    Gibson called Pope John Paul II "the anti-Christ" and "the devil," the screenwriter alleges.

    "You kept raging about your ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva," mother of their young daughter Luci, the letter alleges, saying Gibson referred to her with sexist epithets. "You acted out for me the scene where you hit her. But you said you'd 'just slapped her a little bit.'"

    Eszterhas claims in the letter Gibson explicitly said, "'I'm going to kill her! I'm going to have her killed!'"...

    I drive a limo in the city, my buddy drove Mel Gibson and said he's a total prick.
    Also, I think he's one of those "traditionalist Catholics," like Pat Buchanan. These guys don't think the Pope is conservative enough, lol. His father is a crackpot blogger, check him out: [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hutton_Gibson"]Hutton Gibson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]
    He's denied the Holocaust, and is 9/11 conspiracy theorist. My mom was super-Catholic, she joined a convent right after high school (lucky for me she didn't stay there, lol), and she was a big fan of his dad.
    Also, SteelyDan, she was from your neck of the woods! I have lots of family in Monroe & Wayne counties.
    BTW, what does the coocoo clock vid have to do with the post? TIA!

    He probably is. I've never been a fan of his to begin with, so it's not really changed my perception of him.

    The thing is that it fits with what we already knew about MG. Joe Eszterhas is not a nutjob, he's a fairly respected writer. I'd believe him over Gibson any day. JMO

    Oven-dodgers? Really? If he said that, then everyone needs to know and stop supporting him by paying to see his movies. Hollywood will catch on quick enough, and he will no longer be on the big screen.

    Mel Gibson Calls BS I LOVE The Beatles!!!

    Mel Gibson is telling friends ... he NEVER said John Lennon deserved to die -- in fact, he's a huge Beatles fan and he plays their music all the time.

    Sources tell TMZ, screenwriter Joe Eszterhas' allegations the actor celebrated John Lennon's death are just false. As one source put it, "It's not uncommon to hear The Beatles at Gibson's house."...

    Oh so the one part in the article that he chose to deny was that he doesn't like the Beatles?

    LOL!! He's not taking time to refute the fact that he cheated on his wife, who bore him 7 kids, or beat up his mistress, who also gave him a child (he knocked her teeth out). Or denying those recordings where he's ranting on the phone to her, saying "I hope you get raped by a pack of n*****s!"
    But, hey, he likes the Beatles.

    Never will watch anything he's in, ever again. I can NOT believe he said 'oven-dodgers' !! :banghead::banghead: I'm ashamed to admit I did watch the lethal weapons films.

    I used to love Mel Gibson. Not so much now. I've never heard the term 'oven-dodgers' - must be a phrase popular with the anti-semantic, racist, conspiracy-theorist crazy people. I wonder how his ex-wife & first seven children deal with the humiliation 'cause he sure doesn't seem to realize how utterly pathetic he is. His career is over, if it wasn't already.

    don't be ashamed - we all watched them and they were good

    he was compellingly wacky in them ... perhaps he was just playing himself

    I wonder if he is suffering from some brain injury or disorder that is causing such venom to come forth from his mouth? Or was he always like this, and just hid it well? His ex-wife and children would know I suppose. It is just shocking to see how his reputation is falling apart over the past few years, not unlike that of Charlie Sheen.

    Doesn't long-term alchoholism cause brain damage? Maybe he's been a drunk his whole life, and just hid it well. Or maybe a brain tumor? That's my theory on Fred Phelps, from the Westboro Baptist Church. He was a big civil rights activist in the 60's 70's and 80's, has been awarded by the NAACP. Then he turned into the total nutcase we see today.

    Mel is an interesting character to say the least. Is he racist? Quite likely. Does he disagree with the current Catholic Church? Absolutely. Does he spew venom? Yes, at times...especially when drunk.

    IMHO, when he got caught in "Hollywood", and then left his wife and children, that's when his self-destruction started. He was, for the first time to all extents and purposes, alone and unable to deal with his life (and the life Hollywood demanded of him) in a solid, constructive way.

    For the most part, though, I will still watch his movies. I will watch George Clooney, as well, and Morgan Freeman, and Denzel Washington, even though I disagree with a lot of their personal policies.

    Why? Because I don't ask those for whom fame has come to be a role model. I watch them for entertainment, not for policy change. I am the same with atheletes.

    There is a lot of Hollywood that is unknown, and not at all understood. I grew up in the industry, saw all sorts of things, and learned early that a good movie does not depend on the actor's personal political or religious views...it depends on good acting.

    I apply this to Mel Gibson. He has made some incredible movies, has been a really good actor, and has entertained me. Do I agree with his stated political views? No, but unlike Michael Moore, he doesn't make movies about them. And no, I don't look at Michael Moore's stuff, because that's ALL about politics.

    Just a different opinion this morning...and btw, I am not a huge fan of the Beatles, either. LOL.

    Best-

    See, to me Mel is different than say, Angie Harmon or Patricia Heaton, who I really don't agree with politically. Espousing a political view or religious belief that I disagree with isn't really enough to make me stop watching someone's movies, because they are free to their own opinion (although Tom Cruise's couch jumping did make it hard for me to take him seriously as any character, haha). But when the actor in question starts spouting vile, racist insults? That's a whole different issue to me.

    WTF? I cannot believe he said that. I am stunned...although I shouldn't be.
