Gibson Eats His Words

7/31/2006 4:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In yet another ironic twist in the Mel Gibson DUI saga, an interview with the actor in 2004 shows Gibson slamming reports of anti-semitism and opening up about his past issues with alcohol abuse.

In the sit-down with Diane Sawyer for "Primetime" Gibson laughs off rumors of anti-semitism saying, "for me it goes against the tenets of my faith to be racist in any point."

The Aussie was also grilled about his issues with alcoholism, which Gibson swore were in the past -- "Sometimes I used to drive inebriated, this is at the height of careless stupidity and when you think of that kind of insanity, I look back at that now and go what was I thinking."
