Mickey Rourke

I Believe In Mel Gibson

... He's an Easy Target

4/13/2012 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



0413_rourke_videoMel Gibson has at least one supporter in Hollywood ... his friend Mickey Rourke ... who tells TMZ, he thinks Joe Eszterhas is a LIAR ... who's out to smear Mel's reputation.

Mickey was leaving Caffe Primo in West Hollywood when we asked about Joe's allegations that Mel is a violent Jew-hater who hates John Lennon.

Mickey's response -- "Everybody is looking to make Mel look bad ... he's an easy f**king target."

He explained, "We live in a town that's built on envy."

It's not the first time Mickey's come to Mel's defense -- back in 2010, following Oksana Grigorieva's domestic violence allegations, Mickey said, "I wouldn't believe everything you hear ... I think he's a good dude, you know. And ah, screw the bitch!"

There are so many Anti-Gentiles in H-Wood, It's good to see Rourke is not one of them.

MEL GIBSON WOULDN'T HAVE MADE THE PASSION IF HE HATED JEWS, YOU STUPID IGORNAT ASSESS!! JESUS IS A JEW!!!!

OH, YOU JEWS IN HOLLYWOOD, AND THE PEOPLE THAT THINK MEL HATES THE JEWS. HOW COME YOU DIDN'T PUT MONEY ON THE MAKING OF THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.. YOUR JEW SAVIOR..HUM?

You can tell how much someone has a vendetta against you by the number of articles on TMZ.

YEAP, THAT SHOULD SHOW THE JUDGE AND MEL GIBSON'S LAWYERS THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE PUT OKSANA IN JAIL. MAYBE THEN THERE WOULDN'T BE OTHER IDIOTS OUT THERE TRYING TO DO THE SAME DAMN THING TO THIS POOR MAN.

i saw Joe Eszterhas interview this am, i'm thinking this is bs now - he said his friends told their kids to run and hide from mel and his son slept w/ a butcher knife under his pillow, he was so scared of mel - if this was true and joe thought kids were in danger - wouldn't he ave kicked mel out or just left??

I have to wonder why Joe Eszterhas would continue to subject himself and his wife and child to Mel's 'behavior'. If someone behaved like that at one dinner I would never return or be in their company again. It is so obvious to me that Mr. Eszterhas is out to further smear Mel. Does the saying with friends like you, who needs enemies mean anything to you Mr. Eszterhas? I think if you truly were Mel's friend, and he was truly behaving the way you allege in your horrible letter, wouldn't you feel compassion for someone who is so troubled and try to help them, rather than try to tear them down futher? You Mr. Eszterhas makes me sick and you should be ashamed of your lies and trechery.

They're both two of a kind and I wouldn't pay to see either one of them. Mel is a washed up has been who thinks he is still something. Mickey in my opinion, is a "never was and never will be". I do beleive that Mel Gibson is a hater.

Funny how repeating allegations becomes an argument for their truth.

I love Mickey Rourke because he calls it like he sees it and he's usually right. It's been open season on Mel Gibson for the last five years so no surprise that the wholesale character assassination continues.
