Mel Gibson: Costa Rica Loco!

7/16/2007 6:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Actor/director/hater Mel Gibson, 51, was photographed in a bar in Nicoya, Costa Rica -- looking like he was having a swell time with the local chicas. Salud!

Mel has purchased a multi-million dollar mansion in C.R., and he was welcomed by President Oscar Arias. Mr. Gibson is said to be planning charitable contributions to the natives.

Gibson was arrested last July on suspicion of drunk driving and went on an anti-semitic tirade.

Good for Mel! He's purported to enjoy himself and be most friendly with those who approach him. I think the man is simply a human being and that he likes to be in the company of happy people. So what if he was in a bar!! That whole ridiculous situation last year was just that - RIDICULOUS - and was totally blown out of proportion. Mel Gibson is a very talented actor and film maker and I, for one, admire his talent. As for all the "naysayers" all I can say is, " leave my Mel alone!" He will forever be my "Braveheart" and I wish him and his family much happiness in his new Costa Rican home!!!

Him and the gals around him look like they've been "rode hard and put away wet". eww

Mel's a drunk. the only difference between him and the guy sleeping on the city bench is he's rich and drunk. Oh, and he's a hypocrite, the guy on the bench..maybe not.

So, how come Mel Gibson's anti-semitism is mentioned in every article about him, but your constant coverage of the racist Paris Hilton never mentions that?

Standards are badly needed.    

Dearest Mel, I guess this photo means it's over.

Ah yes - back to Mel bashing I see. What's that? Eeeeewwwww! I think I smell Harvey. Yup - That's it. Jeesh! Give it up. Mel is what he is - A GENIUS. And you MSN guys - Harvey in particular - just can't stand it. No matter how much you try to make him look bad, his talent overcomes your efforts. Here's a tip for all you Mel haters - move on. There are so many more to bash for anti-semitism - google Paris Hilton's New Years Eve party and watch and listen. If it weren't for the fact that she feeds your frenzied open purses you would be doing just that. And the fact that Mel won't even admit to your existence is what really eats away at your egos. Tsk! Tsk!

Harvey and those like you (Robs Schneider and Reiner) - moooooove on. You remind me Jackson/Sharpton crew - only your fight is with the jew haters, You know it's starting be as funny as those guys (S & J) too. Get over it - you are not talented like Mel and never will be. You might make a few bucks here and there - but what about the legacy? I'd mention a few pieces of your work except I can't think of any. I bet if you asked anyone to name at least three Gibson movies, they'd have no trouble rattling them off.

Many people in this world are anti semitic.
People high in goverment positions as well.
I don't hold a grudge against mel.. He made a mistake and opened his mouth the wrong time. He isn't a racist.
Those hookers look HIV infected... yuck

Before he completely reneges on his contract he should be giving back, he still owes God either another movie or a whole lot of money,
