Mel completed his 16 hours of community service several months ago with Mending Kids. The community service was part of  the plea deal he struck for allegedly striking ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Mending Kids International provides medical care to underprivileged children. Robyn Gibson is a former President of the Malibu chapter.  Mel and Robyn have been doing work with the charity for years.

@ confused...Jesus once said, do not throw the pearls in front of pigs...You speak to me about Christian feelings because it serves you right. You have no remorse, no fear of God. You gloated while you could and now that the knife is pointing your way, you expect cheap Christian sentiment. You will not be forgiven. Since you had years to prove goodness, that never occured. I will leave you to your lord, the devil. Enjoy the ride!

@Confused - I would have never known that the "devil" was "your Lord" unless God's spokesperson pointed it out.

It's just not that obvious to the spiritually challenged posters at TMZ. So ... don't even worry about it. ;-)

He actually looks a bit better in that photo too. It is such a shame that the guy who brought us Braveheart and entertained people in the Mad Max and Lethal Weapon movies had to end up the way he has, looks gone, respect lost, marriage and career over and all it took was to stay on the bottle for most of his life.

_______________________________________________________

One's looks "go" normally as one ages. Gibson has always been the real deal, and I don't think any fan who bothered to learn anything about him expects him to get face lifts. It's time as an actor for him to move on to "older" roles.

I doubt that his career is really over, but if it is, so what? He's at an age to retire. As to his marriage being over, that was his own choice, and as far as the public knows, he wanted and wants it that way.

As to respect, many of us respect him more than ever. He's a very good man who has been vilified by the press and extorted and betrayed by a gold digger. He's done the best he could do with that situation.

It’s about time somebody listed what Gibson actually did for Grigorieva since she met him, before she became a woman scorned and decided to extort him.
Gibson directed her music videos, produced and promoted her CD. Gibson paid for it all. Gibson asked they use one of her songs when the EoD credits rolled and he made the audience sit through the song! Gibson bought a house through ICON so she had a place to live which was closer to her son’s school (when he was with her) because David Foster wanted her out of his house! She did numerous interviews set up by Alan Nierob paid for by Gibson. Gibson took her on the EoD promotion tour and the Russian Charity Concerts she gave in LA and Moscow were all paid for by Gibson. She had decided she would score his next movie “How I spent my Summer Vacation” , had ordered the sound equipment, which Gibson paid for. We know what he thought of her ability to score the film when he found out she had said that in an interview. Gibson allowed her to use his attorneys (no doubt paid for by him) to sue Oriti over the lingerie pictures and when she sobbed on his shoulder that she had problems with Dalton over custody of Alexander in 2008. He no doubt paid for the use of a lawyer who was part of his law-firm, the only law firm Gibson has used himself since all of this started.
Not forgetting Gibson has also paid for her 43+ lawyers and now she wants Gibson’s law firm removed from the case. Grigorieva consulted the lawyer in 2008 – long before Lucia was born, what does this have to do with their current custody fight?!
I won’t even mention the devious and mysterious way in which the “illegally” recorded messages of their “bust up” found their way on to the internet when they monetary only took care of Lucia and did not include enough for her. Eric George was involved in setting up the mediation agreement for her for $15 million, when she found out most of it was for Lucia, including the house and very little for her she refused to sign the long form. She gave several impromptu interviews to Radar online outside Ralphs, an interview to People Magazine and went on Larry King to tell her story, and the rest is history.

@God's spokesperson - I guess we'll be seeing one another in hell. I'll be the one with the the fabulous purse and shoes. Do me a favor when you see me and don't speak to me.

@ Tellthetruth59...I know where I am going, to heaven. We won't meet, don't worry. You will have an eternity with whores and pimps and the likes of you to keep you busy. Though those that walk the street are those that can hope for redemption, since, as Jesus put it, they may have loved a lot. Bad for those, that did it out of sheer greed.

Leader of the ignorant masses    

Regardless of the scandal at least some people who are less fortunate benefit from all of this. At least this is more productive than having him sit in a cell. Then again my opinion of criminals in general is they should be responsible for all the fees citizens have to pay to convict them. Let them earn money in prison that goes straight to paying off their tab instead of pumping iron all day.

@God's spokesperson - While you are sitting at Jesus' right hand - tell him that TT59, MW and Confused said they were the victim of bad press - just like Mel Gibson. Hopefully we'll get some hard time in Purg instead of the eternal fires of hell.
