Here is video of Actor Mel Gibson today in a Good Morning America interview where he came to the defense of golfer Tiger Woods. Gibson said "they are beating the hell out of the guy," and that he really feels for him. Gibson said there is "not a person on the planet" who has not done some things they are not proud of. About Woods, Gibson said "I love the guy. . . . I want to watch him play golf. I want to see him swing a club." . . . (VIDEO)

Oh Mel. Geez, I still dream of him as he was in Braveheart, but is going soft in the head as he gets older?
I like Mel more in the movies than in real life.
I don’t disagree completely. Yes, the aura is gone. Yes, his character is clearly not what people thought, but he is still a tremendous golfer. It will be interesting to see what happens on his return.
Maybe he wants to putt with him..
Good for Mel.
ok, so now I’m stuck with this image of Tiger on a horse in Scotland with blue face paint, saying “They can take my endorsements, and my kids.....”
Me too—I think the Gibson clan goes a little loopy when they hit a certain age.
Tiger disgraced golf and when will the PGA check him for steroids and HGH use. The PGA is not supposed to be the NFL or NBA or even MBL.
I used to like Mel but he is just another adulterer and drunk.
You don't repent because you seek forgiveness.
You repent because you really know that you did something wrong and really do repent. Full Stop.
If Mel wants to express his personal forgiveness, that's all well and good, but he ought to spend more time discussing the vital role that true repentence must play for Tiger Woods' future.
The pleasure of watching a great golfer really pales in comparison with the more important issues here.
So Mel’s biggest concern about the whole issue is whether he gets to see Tiger play golf. Mel (beginning with his arrest) is revealing himself to be a much different individual than we thought just a few short years ago.
Maybe Mel will grant Tiger an “annulment.”
I don’t like to watch golf, but.....
Stuff your slander and moral damnation. A thousand Tigers and Mels would be better than the unforgiving poison you're spewing. May God hold you alone to the merciless, contemptuously arrogant standard you sneer out for the rest of the world, and spare us all from your hypocritical spit.
Another wife cheater rationalizes.
If he’d beaten his wife, I would never want to see him again. I think he acted foolishly and callously towards his wife, but many rich and famous men have done far worse. I don’t admire his catting around but I can overlook it.
I don’t watch golf on TV, but I did occassionally when Tiger played. And he was exciting to watch.
Last time I checked.....
He was ooohhh...lemme seee....
EIGHTEEN OVER PAR!!
[/sarc] [apols = NO]
but to KEEP doing that...now there's the rub....
whenever I hear anyone excusing others bad behaviour it makes me think that they are just covering for themselves.....
I don't care if Woods wants to have sex with 5000 women....let him do as an unmarried man who doesn't carry the banner of being "nice" and
I agree to a point, but I don’t think I quite ready to get life lessons in morality from anyone in Hollywood.
Tiger Woods is definitely a swinger :)
I want to see more nude pictures of those knock-out broads he slept with.
Nothing like hitting the “post” button to suddenly realize you made a typo. It should read, “I agree to a point, but I dont think I’m quite ready to get life lessons in morality from anyone in Hollywood.”
You use drunk like it's a pejorative.
Sounds like someone who is resentful about his own treatment and feels for somebody else who is “getting it.” I can relate to a certain extent too, but he shouldn’t count on getting his hundred mill per in endorsements back again. I spect that kind of money is gone forever. And if he IS juicing, which I’m pretty sure he is, or was, that’s a deal killer, Ladies. Shut’it down.
Braveheart is a movie. Gibson is an actor. He played the lead role in the movie. The character in the movie is not Mel Gibson the man.
I like The Lord of the Rings. I liked the part, Strider, that Viggo Mortensen played. But in real life Viggo is a POS.
Tiger + Mel = birds of a feather.
there but for the grace of God go I.
Love John Daley’s outfits He’s got some kind of TV show coming out, doesn’t he?
I find it interesting that a world that finds sodomy “OK” and even celebrates it somehow see something “wrong” with Tiger Woods.
Dunno - the dude one of those larger-than-life/potential train-wreck type folks that people can’t get enough of, so it wouldn’t surprise me.
LOL! This is satire right? So you are judging me for judging them? Sounds like you are doing the same thing.
So I am worse than Tiger spreading STDs to endless women or Mel driving around drunk and cheating on his wife? So judging someone is worse then maybe Mel killing a child while drunk driving or Tiger high on drugs and booze killing someone in his SUV.
Go say 4 hail Marys for Mel and call me in the morning.

Check out the tiny wrist and massive arms/neck!
Now THAT is a match up for a joke!
Spike Lee, Tiger Woods, Mel Gibson and Charles Barkley walk into a bar...
Poor Daly is a tragedy. Even Tiger said that Daly may have been one of the most gifted golfers of a generation. So many mental demons. He is finally getting his life together. He just needs to cut out the diet cokes and smoking. He looks great in that red shirt. The gastric bypass helped him lose a lot of weight.
I saw a picture of Mickelson from a few days ago. He was chubby in 2008 and slimmed down in 2009. He looks even better for 2010.
Last year at major tourneys, Mickelson shot lower scores than Tiger while he took a month or so off to take care of his wife. Phil almost won the Masters and U.S. Open. He beat Tiger like a drum at the last tourney in Shanghai and won the tourney. Tiger put two shots in the water in the last 3 holes.
Really, don’t tell me there is no Santa Claus. Stop talking to me like I am a child, I was merely talking about him being not only a hunk in the movie - but still with his wife at that point in his life and appeared to have it all under control. That was 15 years ago.
Sadly, Mel Gibson has demons and as he gets older they appear to be taking their toll. I can see where he would feel a kinship to another celebrity under the microscope but both men are flawed and will have to live with the consequences of their actions. Too bad for them.
I agree, he has had some fantastic roles.
I agree with Gibson. I disagree with sanctimonious twits.
To err is human, to forgive is divine.
I'm sorry. I didn't intend to offend you. But I don't understand why people fall in love with movie stars.
“But I don’t understand why people fall in love with movie stars.”
I didn’t say love, but Gibson is a good looking man and the roles he played in Braveheart and The Patriot (in particular) were great. Mad Max, excellent movie! Same with James Garner - first saw “The Great Escape” when I was 12 and have been smitten ever since. I can seperate the person from the movie role.
I don’t think I am the only woman that finds leading men attractive.
Apparently not soft in OTHER places.....
oh, I’m SOOOOOO sorry....
I just couldn’t help it!
Glad to see Daly is re-cycling the curtains from his kids nursery.
You and I must meet! I just don’t understand this adoration crap with hollywood celebrities. For one thing the money they donate to people like Obama Kerry Clinton comes from the success of their movies songs etc. Hollywood has no connection to the everyday American people. The other night I saw the Morgans at a friends house well that was the pure example of the coast people and the everyday Americans. The Morgans from New York spent most of the movie making fun of republicans people who have guns the way they eat and live. Mel Gibson is an actor, he pretends for a living and apparently he pretended being married to his wife for a long time.
What happened to Mel? He started to soften and slow down with The Passion, then he went nuts, left his wife and married some young dame. Then he went and got drunk and had his antisemite rant , stars in a shoot-em-up and now this. (((sigh))) kids these days....
I think you got to the heart of the matter. Hollywood is place where people pretend to be somebody they aren't. And then they go on pretending even when they aren't on a movie set, but pretending in order to fool people.
