Mel Gibson

Grilled About Jewish Director

After 'C**ksucker' Rant Leaks

4/18/2012 8:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0419_mel_gibson_question_video
Just hours after Mel Gibson's latest expletive-riddled tirade was leaked onto the Internet, the actor was brazenly asked about his relationship with the Jewish director on his new film "Get the Gringo" -- and it was really, really awkward ...

It all went down moments ago at a Q&A session in Texas for Mel's movie -- the director, Adrian Grunberg, was wearing a Star of David necklace ... prompting the host to ask, "Did you [and Mel] have any trouble working together?"

Everyone laughed nervously at the question -- and Mel replied uncomfortably, "No."

Grunberg explained that he was indeed Jewish, but he's worked with Mel for years without a problem. Grunberg then joked, "I hate [Mel's] guts."

It's worth noting -- the third writer on the project (in addition to Grunberg and Gibson) is also Jewish.

The host quickly changed topics ...

Geez, HL tears up on air today about DC dying today . . . but, it's all about $$$$$$$$$$ We GET IT about Mel Gibson, okay? He's no "big mystery." Put DC up top OUT OF RESPECT. Once again, must be the $$$$$$$$ despite Harvey's tears.

He sounds psychotic...he's full of rage and that's not your average angry screaming. Seriously, he's got a mental condition...don't know whether it is checked or unchecked but he needs to be expertly evaluated in a psychiatric clinic. One day he's going to really hurt someone, not just a push or a slap, or even a punch, I'm talking about violence that no one will be able to walk away from. I wouldn't let him near my kid, I hope his visits with his little daughter are supervised. I guess a lot of his rage comes from the fact that he's a has-been.

Seems like he gets along fine with people that are working with him competently and aren't trying to extort money from him.

Did the person who wrote this piece even watch the video. Nobody looked nervous, they looked like they were having fun. As for his moving on quickly, the question was answered on to the next.

However TMZ could watch this clip and learn a thing or two. The host had the balls to ask the question out front, something TMZ doesn`t do. However that could be because Gibson wouldn`t waste his breath talking to anyone from TMZ.

The Jews in Texas are awesome. They can handle Mel and he won't even know he is being handled.
