I still like Mel Gibson, he's going through a very unstable period in his life and hasn't been right since his divorce. I wonder if this is part of what caused the breakdown of his long marriage.

Very sad.

I've always liked his acting. It's a dirty shame that he's such a hater though.

I think he needs to get himself into a doctor pronto. He may very well have a medical problem, something that is having a bad effect on his brain. He's been a part of Hollywood for a long time and these rants of his are just bizarre....

I've always liked Mel Gibson until he started spewing these awful views.

Mel Gibson's a closeted anti - Semitic, misogynistic, racist control freak, and when things don't go his way he goes ballistic. Then the idiot freak in him is out of the closet and off and running. This behavior isn't new, it just that the public is now finding out about him, thanks to technology.

As far as his divorce contributing to his recent meltdowns I doubt it: he wasn't exactly a stay-at-home dad with his seven children. I think his relationship with the sultry Oksana Grigorieva sent him over the edge.

Mid-life crisis. Period. He knows he's losing his appeal. I'm sure many stars go through this, though some get more rambunctious than others.

Yes, he needs professional help. But then, so does 90+% of Hollywood.

You ever see him on TV getting interviewed waaaay back when he was popular?
He can't even be himself and just answer a question.
He seems super fake. Kinda like he's always in character.

Horrible hate filled woman beating human he turned out to be.

Yes, he is. And he is also a mean one.

His father was a member of the ultra-sorta-Catholic (pre-1963 Vatican) group, the one that Gibson has started his own physical church for at his home. This group is not accepted by the mainstream Catholic institution. It's very Jew-hating, among other things. I also note Gibson's gratuitous gay stuff in some movies, like the gay prince and his doomed boyfriend in "Braveheart."
He's a great director. He was hotter than July in movies in the 1980s ("Year of Living Dangerously" anyone?) I certainly doubt he was a loyal and faithful husband for decades to his very early first marriage. Odd how someone so Catholic-y can pick and choose his sins.

I think it was him banging and getting his girlfriend pregnant while he was still married is what help end his marriage.
