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 ...

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Having listened to both recordings of him & his ex plus him & this latest dust-up, I can take comfort in the fact thta he will either soon have a fatal heart attack, or end up permanently ensconced in a mental institution somewhere.

This isn't someone blowing off steam or having a workplace argument. This is someone who can no longer deal with the day to day realities of society.

Good bye & good riddance.

Bi-polar and racist are 2 different things. Mel's problems stem more from what he says, not how he behaves.

He didn't do anything criminal. People need to get mad about things that matter like abuse against children (any form of it), and human slavery. The media keeps this circus going. Every day, all over the world, people get mad and have blow-out arguments, but they don't make the world news like Mel does. It's time for people just to move on from this and stop trying to make something out of nothing. Joe claiming fear, etc. sounds like a lawsuit in the making to me. And of course, he and OG will become best of buds now.

Why don't people just google Joe Esterhaus? He's just as much of a s***bag as anyone including Mel. The quality of this guys work has sunk on a consistan bases. Best screenplay was Betrayed and crap since then. Going by the tape Mel has been probably paying this guy to get something done and he's produced his usual crap and Mel is fed up.Joe was probably acting like he was on vacation instead of working. WE all know Mel has a temper and Joe should have known this before working with him since the rest of the workd knew.

Embarass the hell out of this rabid dog. He's totally insane. Anyone who defends the actions of a man who has shown a pattern of being abusive, racist, etc., need to ask themselves WHY.

I hope people keep recording him. Sometimes that's the only way to bring down egomaniacs.

I guess TMZ is like Al Sharpton on George Zimmerman about Mel Gibson.

They won't be happy until he is dead.

No wonder Oksana did not want to share custody with this Neanderthal. The guy has too many hangups about women, Jews, etc.

Ummm sorry TMZ but the description didn't match what happened on the video AT ALL! The guy was clearly being sarcastic when he said he hated Mel's guts. Are you guys retarded?
