Mel Gibson

Grilled About Jewish Director

After 'C**ksucker' Rant Leaks

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 ...

Who cares?? Mel is entitled to his freedom of expression, whilest his views maybe harsh and mean, its still his right to say what he damn well pleases. So what if he has anger issues and is an anti-semite. He is still an American citizen with the same rights as everyone else.

If someone ever secretly recorded me trying to get to Hollywood from Brentwood at 4:45pm on a Friday my rant would make Mel's sound like that cute little african american actress from the police academy movies.

I was sitting in the front row no more than 10 feet from Mel and the interview was not heated what so ever. Mel was fantastic last night. Although, I would have liked to see one of his famous outburst. At the end of the Q&A Mel was very polite when I asked him to sign my Blu-ray cover.

I read the script and it was not a script. It was a menu of the dirtiest Fish in the Sea. It offered no hour devour , no wine and was pure bull baIIs. The scribble was that of Cheeky monkey trained to type by getting bananas.
