Mel Gibson

Belts Out His Favorite

Tom Jones Song (Kind Of)

5/12/2013 7:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

051213_mel_gibson_launch
Ask anyone to belt out their favorite Tom Jones song and you'll probably get "It's Not Unusual" -- arguably one of the most famous songs of all time.

Ask Mel Gibson to sing a few bars of his favorite Tom tune -- and you get a different famous song from an entirely different Jones.

Our photog spotted Mel leaving The Troubador last night, just moments after Jones himself was seen exiting the club, so the question was a no brainer.

There's plenty of Tom magic to choose from: "It's Not Unusual", "She's a Lady", "Sex Bomb" ... all were major hits.

But Mel -- always keeping it interesting -- chose none of those. Instead he chose (and sang) a song made famous by the legendary George Jones (although Tom was known to sing it as well).

Really? TMZ's still reporting on him like he's still a celebrity or noteworthy?

Mel is fine off the booze. Truly a mean drunk. Wow, is there anyone else that has the reputation of being a mean, nasty, out of control drunk. Pouring drinks on people, slapping or punching strangers...Red hair comes to mind. Right on he tip of my tongue...nope, just can't think of name right now.

Tom does indeed do a version of 'He Stopped Loving Her Today'. Check out the link.

Sad, pathetic TMZ crew trying to make something of NOTHING as usual. Pft!!

Happy Mum's Day to all of you mum's.

Ever notice how Oprah hasn't invited Mel to tell his side of the story.....it's because Mel's a flat out racist!

Good to see Mel out and about. The song he referenced really is a good one. The Tom Jones song I like is, 'I Who Have Nothing.'

Hello to Bunny! Happy Mother's Day to you too, and a big ole' hug from me to go with it! I hope that life is treating you well. We are fine. The little man is growing up. There has been a definite attitude shift! He is coming up on 13...AHHH!
