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.

Not accusing here, but if you look at his eyes, that grin, and notice that water bottle... he looks like a poster child for someone rolling on good X.

There is no comparison between Mel and Lindsay Lohan.
Mel is great actor who has proven he is able to attract audiences to his movies.
Lindsay only parties with her lesbian girlfriend/ dj and does coke...
She can't even make it on time to a movie set.
I love all his movies.

The man admitted his mistakes, apololgized both publicly and privately, immediately went to rehab and has paid his dues. Shame on you TMZ...I notice you don't take Hilton to task for her racist remarks, or her failure to admit her mistakes -- I could go on and on. This is biased BS.

Mel is a done-to-earth guy who admitted his mistakes and apologized. This man is a genius as well. And he's been sober since rehab. You're hitting below the belt on this one, TMZ...you've joined the bottom feeders.

WOW - You really do not know what prejudice is. Sorry I am American and he did not insult Americans. He also apologized for his rantings when he was arrested. That's more than Jess Jackson or Al Sharton ever did. They never apologize even when they are in the wrong or say racist remarks. And no I am not white.

Mel makes great movies and I will continue to support him. Mel doesn't need ex-fans like you. You never were a fan.

Are you people totally nuts? Mel is not drunk in that picture has been sober since that incident with Sheriff What's-His-Name. He has apolgoized profusely for the remarks he made that night. This is a brilliant actor and producer/director who has made extraordinary contributions to film. He's been married to the same woman for 24 years, and is a terrific father. Gibson's charitable work is legendary; Mel has given an estimated $50 million dollars to charities all over the world...and he never talks about it.

As for looking old, the man is 51 years old and has never had plastic surgery. Get a life, TMZ...this was a cheap shot.

Hmmm, natives? Really TMZ?

I would think after the whole Beyonce-Roboho controversy, you woul learn that racism earns you more woes and foes than friends.

But alas, guess not.

Leave the guy alone. Good for him having lots of moola for the mansion purchase and for having a major good time celebrating the occasion. And, let's drop the anti-Semitic past reference. Jews regularly make anti-Semitic slurs and comments against Arabs (who are also Semites) and not too many seem to be against those hateful tirades. Enough, already!
