Mel Gibson Audio

Explosive Costa Rican Rant

4/19/2012 12:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Mel Gibson is caught on tape exploding in a rage during a trip to Costa Rica last December, screaming at the top of his lungs ... and now the audio has been released.

The Wrap obtained the tape from Joe Eszterhas -- the man who wrote the screenplay for "The Maccabees" with Mel. Eszterhas has made shocking allegations that Mel ranted about killing Oksana Grigorieva, hating Jews, and praising the guy who killled John Lennon.

Eszterhas's son Nick recorded one of Mel's outbursts ... which starts with Mel blasting Joe, "Why don't I have a first draft of "The Maccabees?" What the f**k have you been doing?"

Mel goes on, turning his anger at Oksana: "I am earning money for a filthy little c**ksucker who takes advantage of me." 

Mel can then be heard slamming objects in the house, and then continues screaming, "Who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!"

JENNIFER LOPEZ

Wears Her Sexiest Dress

On "American Idol"


0419_welcome_jlo_launch
The top 7 "American Idol" finalists performed last night, but it was Jennifer Lopez who stole the show.

The 42-year-old judge wore a sexy Herve Leger dress during the show -- her most revealing look this season! The body-hugging bandage dress had cutouts in the middle, showing off J.Lo's ripped abs. Fortunately, flesh-colored lining guarded against any wardrobe malfunctions, but it certainly gave the impression Jennifer was nude underneath.

J.Lo's been bringing the fashion this season, wearing designers like Lanvin and Dolce & Gabbana. Check out all her sexiest styles this season!

Zac Efron
is know for his lean muscular physique.

The 5'8" heartthrob usually weighs in around 145 pounds, but he gained over 18 pounds to play a Marine in the upcoming film "The Lucky One."

To put on the weight, Zac was put on a 3,500 calorie a day diet and underwent months of intense training, including working out five days a week (with lots of powerlifting) and drills in a full Marine kit.

Hoorah!

LAUREN CONRAD

Beverly Hills …

That's Where I Want to Be


Lauren Conrad had a new condo
Former MTV star Lauren Conrad is back on "The Hills" -- Beverly Hills -- because she just dropped $1.35 million on a swanky new condo in the wealthy L.A. neighborhood.

The ex-reality star will be the newest resident of the 90210 -- recently purchasing the massive 3,200 sq. ft. 2-story, penthouse condo with 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, and a 24-hr security system ... to keep away all those crazy "Hills" fans.

The house also sports a rooftop pool, outdoor deck, full gym, indoor bar, marble bath and hardwood floors.

But all this doesn't come cheap -- Conrad has to shell out $2,319 in homeowners' fees alone ... and then pay her million dollar mortgage on top of that. Oh, and this is her 2nd house -- the other one is in Malibu.

All hail LC.

Jeezuz what a complete LOSER. Mel is so spoiled from never having worked a real job in his entire life and is used to having everything handed to him on a silver platter.

Wake up Mel. You're an over the hill has been and your little tirades aren't cute. Get some help man.

Leave Mel alone! So he flies off the handle. Doesn't everybody? A real fan doesn't care about all this trivia. If he murdered that commie ex-wife of his, I'd help him celebrate.

too bad, he's probably under a lot of stress, or he hadn't eaten, sometimes that brings out the worst, His cir***stance of doubt and determination probably isn't unlike the movie he is trying to make, very dramatic
Mattathias is faced with keeping everyone to the faith and at the same time no one is willing to cooperate. I liken it to me trying to tell all of LA to establish emergency exit routes away from the coasts along Southern California like Long Beach, Huntington, Venus, to enable people to flee the Tsunami that will wipe them all out in the first couple of weeks in July. A daunting task.

obviously the man is under a lot of stress. so much for "grace under.." kind of went out the ****ing window but creative people have times, just like very one else.. drinking brings out the worst in some, others just because they haven't eaten yet..

I'LL RANT...I DO NOT BLAME MEL FOR EXPLODING ON THIS FAT A**HO**! THERE WAS NO ANTI SEMITIC RANT. NO TALK OF KILLING ANYONE...ONLY OF BEING BLEED FOR EVERYTHING HE HAS WORKED SO HARD FOR. ESZTERHAS HAD FIFTEEN MONTHS (MEANING HE WAS BEING PAID BY GIBSON) TO TURN IN A FIRST DRAFT...HE DIDN'T. WHEN THE ARROGANT PIG, (AND HE IS A PIG) DID TURN IN HIS FIRST DRAFT, IT WAS SO BAD, THAT WARNER BROS. & GIBSON COULDN'T USE IT....ISN'T IT ODD THAT NOT ONE WORD FROM ESZTERHAS COULD BE HEARD! YOU GO MEL. I HAVE YOUR BACK, AND I WOULD GLADLY WRITE YOU A FIRST DRAFT AT NO CHARGE.

Sounds like somebody is trying to get Mel in trouble. As far as I'm concern, he can say whatever he wants. I agree with most of what he says.

Joe B., I agree with you 100%. I wonder how many of the critics who've commented would pass the 'white glove' test. What we say and do in private is just that, private. It's legally and morally wrong in my opinion to record someone(audio & vidio) without their permission no matter how famous or infamous they are.

This is what happens when you are a rich older guy who gets suckered in by a young gold-digger. Bet he wishes he stayed with his wife.

OMG - Gibson can say whatever he wants to say in his own home or, frankly, anywhere for that matter. The press needs to leave him alone!
