that may be plausible one time because of drinking but it appears Gibson has issues with people of different faiths & colors.

He can't really afford to do that--Jodie Foster is directing his new movie.

I think the man is an alcoholic. All of his tirades sound like those of a raging drunk. Too bad. When sober and doing interviews, he comes across quite caring. Handsome man, talented actor, had it all...really threw it all away. How often do we hear about this stuff in Hollywood.

I think he has a hard time accepting that he is flawed, just like the rest of us. So he flails about looking for external reasons for his unhappiness. It's pretty obvious that he is depressed. I am not excusing his behavior though -- we all have our demons and how we approach them is what forms our characters in the eyes of others.

Good point. Alcohol is evil for those who can't imbibe with moderation...it is a serious disease and it ruins a lot of lives. Hopefully he'll get some help and stop trashing his reputation with these antics...

Sean Penn & Gibson don't really compare with each other. Penn has never hurled any racial or homophobic insults. Penn also has given of himself to causes that he believes in. gibson is a self-centered egotistical pri*k imo.

It's not just the alcohol. Sometimes people use alcohol to self-medicate in order to try to escape from deeper issues. Ironically, sometimes the alcohol abuse is the very thing that ends up revealing those deeper issues.

Maybe he's just bent out of shape because people keep sticking their nosey noses in his personal affairs.

Not to make excuses for a drunk, but he could do worse things. By Hollywood standards, he's a prince. I'm just glad the female in question doesn't have a penis (see Eddy Murphy and Danny Bonaduce).

His personal affairs? If he kept his personal affairs personal, maybe you'd have an argument there. No, he wants to be in the spotlight, and he does everything he can to make sure he stays there. He happens to be a lowlife. All right, a lowlife with some acting ability, which is why our cult of celebrity tolerates him.

I dont agree with anyone using the N word but if he wishes to use it thats on him.

He has freedom of speech. Its not like others arent allowed to use that word. If he makes the choice to use that word then he must deal with the reactions of him doing it.
