Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

....well I was kinda confused to what that interviewer meant as well at first. Welcome him back? sure...it's been a while since he starred in a flick (which is what I thought he meant) He should never come back? Again...I was like..why? I remember what the guy was talking about once he explained later but...seemed like he accidentally set himself up for that.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

I see nothing wrong here. That douche reporter basically says, "well there have been numerous reports of him apologizing and trying to make amends, but ya know what, I personally haven't heard it with my own two ears here, so, as far as I'm concerned he hasn't apologized."

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

I don't get all the hatred for Gibson just based on that 20 second interview clip. It seemed like the interviewer was trying to stir things up. This was obviously just a simple movie promo piece, as evidenced by Gibson's co-star being a part of it. I'm left with more of a negative opinion for the guy doing the interview here, than I am with Gibson.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

Yeah, me too. I'd be defensive too if someone thought that I (Mel Gibson) shouldn't come back to act in a flick for some mysterious reason.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

I cry foul. Sam Rubin was the jackass here. He didn't leave or wasn't forced
from acting on screen because of his incident. If Rubin couldn't get past is
own personal feelings on Gibson perhaps he shouldn't be doing the interview.
That's when you pass the line from reporter to gossip hound.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

This Sam guy is a douche and so are his reporter buddies.

Gibson doesn't owe anyone anything. We'd like an apology but if he's pushed into giving one, it's the same as his not apologising. It wont be genuine.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

Sam Rubin has always been and always will be a putz who isn't really worth much more than a laugh - at, not with. He's one of the things I don't miss about not having KTLA anymore.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

I like how that jackass, pansy reporter nearly wet himself when Mel leaned forward and asked him a question.

What a pathetic pussy.



Great clip.

Mel and Winstone should have taken his hands and started smacking him with them while saying "why don't you stop hitting yourself?".

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

The title is true, Mel is a jackass, but everyone else is just as right, that reporter is a pansy ass. He backed down as soon as Mel tried to defend himself, then the reporter suddenly grew balls weeks after, in a studio, miles away from him. It was a bitch move, and he should have just shut his mouth and done his job. If he wanted no part of Gibson and the junket, he didn't have to. Separate the actor and the person, I'm not going to shake Mel's hand, but I'm not going to go to the movie because him. The other actors in the film, the writers, and producers, the directors shouldn't be blamed for the actions of a drunk jackass.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

The reporter was being a huge douche and I'm with Gibson here. Seems like he was just looking to create controversy and the subsequent discussion with the other newscasters just proves that.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

The reporter should have fought back, I agree, but for Gibson to act like the incident 3 years ago never happened is arrogant on his part.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

Thread title should be changed. I'm not defending Gibson here but what it comes down to is....he's prob just sick of fucking hearing it, it happened, it's over, move on - many of you would do the same thing Gibson did.

Exactly. He's probably just trying to put it behind him and focus on the present and the future.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

That was years ago, man. God forgives. Or does he burn you? I'm so confused.

Either way, Mel Gibson won that interview. I do believe in that.

Re: Mel Gibson is a jackass

Yeah, he did it. It's done. We don't know exactly what's in Gibson's normal mindset to say that overall. As long as he doesn't rape 11-13 yr. old girls, kills people, or do things to people that I otherwise would be offended by...he and I...we're cool. Unless he hates Mexican student filmmakers...I still think I'd watch his flicks as long as they're good.

Is the OP the reporter on that clip? Because the title is completely misleading.

If you're able to deny the Holocaust, denying the smaller stuff is peanuts in comparison.

That.
We all make mistakes.
Sounds to me like Mel simply didn't take the bait the interviewer was fishing with.
