Mel Gets Assist From Clooney, DeVito

12/8/2006 1:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney has Paris and Lindsay, Mel has George and Danny.

Last night on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Gibson claimed Hollywood's most famous drinking buddies are helping him stay off the booze, saying "If I ever feel like clutching for the turpentine, DeVito and Clooney just talk me through it."

Gibson's attempts at humor came while he was stuffing his face full of food. "The security guard told me that if I walked a straight line I could get a cookie," Gibson said.

Mel also revealed that he's been sober for about four and a half months, saying, "It's kind of a gradual thing. It doesn't happen overnight. And it takes a little time, that's all. The lights might come on." And then there was light.

Mel's latest film "Apocalypto," with dialog in various Mayan dialects, opens in theaters today, if you care.

i am disgusted with mel gibson and will not watch any more of his movies.
i have many jewsih friends and am embarrased by him.
not for what he said in his drunken state but at what he fails to state now.
he could be a uniter. instead he is a major divider .
he should be ashamed and apologize like he means it without those goofy faces he makes which belie his words.

Mel is a special person..."a person with a third eye"...He have seen things that a normal person do not understand neither him. The movies he has done is prove of that....

To Mel i will say "surrender to the almighty and listen to your heart..then you will complete your mission and will be a 110% happier, when you understand".

You have been bless and I admire you.....STAND UP HIGH AND PROVE ME RIGHT.
