Too bad that he has turned out to be such a freak. I loved him in “Braveheart” and when he produced “The Passion of the Christ” I assumed he was a decent guy.

Why does he need a career? He’s a zillionaire.

Anyone producing, writing, and directing an enormously well done film as The Passion of the Christ will be tormented by the devil for Lord only knows how long.

He hasn’t been a bankable star much recently, even though peers like Bruce Willis still nab action roles.

What a goofy, convoluted sentence. What's with the "much"? What does peers landing action roles have to do with Gibson's bank-ability?

If Alec Baldwin leaves messages like this for his 12 year old daughter, I wonder how he sounds when he his breaking up with a nasty (grownup) Hollywood girlfriend.

It seems to me after his affair became public..He became unbalanced. In spite of he and his wife’s problems, she seemed to keep him in some kind of check.

When he lost Robyn he became undone.

my opinion anyway.

Gibson’s kinda been on Hollywood’s hit list ever since the “Passion” came out. Other celebrities get away with things just as bad or worse on a daily basis and the industry covers for them. Whatever, he has enough cash to finance his own projects if he wants to.

What an idiotic self aggrandizing piece of garbage-—Gibson can self finance and has no need of the W morris agcy. or anyone else.

Ari Emmanuel as a genocide promoter (canceled J-LO concert) has lots more worries than Gibson.

Maybe he wasn’t acting in those “Mad” Max or Lethal Weapon movies.

As for financing, I don’t think he needs anyone to bank roll his films. And if “nobody” will work with him that’s all for the better. Maybe they would go back to the good old days of having real character actors.

I recently rented Edge of Darkness and it was an outstanding film! Gibson was in top form. I think it worked because he played his character with a little bit of crazy.

I don't know if this film was profitable but it definitely served to remind me that for all the recent bumps in Gibson's personal life (indeed, mostly self-inflicted), he is still a helluva entertainer.

I wonder how many of these people writting about how his career is over would feel about having their private spats at home be made public? I’ sure we would find many things to hold over their heads if the same happened to them.

I, for one will see a good movie if he makes one.
If he makes a crappy one, I will not go see it.

Hollywood stars have said much worse in recent years. I have my own list of actors whose product will never again be bought by my family

Well, I am on his side on this. She is a gold-digging tart, and he assumed this was a PRIVATE conversation. His biggest mistake was having anything to do with her. It was deceitful for her to tape this conversation.

He is exactly right-she dresses like a hooker, and he is upset over the implants and his baby nursing, etc. His rant was no different than what most men would say once they realized what they were dealing with. It was a lapse in judgment in the first place to have a relationship with someone like her.

Sorry to see this happen to him now in his life. He had a great wife and family and things have spiraled down for him since his divorce. Somewhere there is a good woman out there who will be able to steer him in the right direction.

Talented actors are often tormented by inner demons. Substance abuse and all manner of dysfunction are hand-in-glove with the trade.

Stop and think about just how many poor behaviors and cockamamie beliefs are not just tolerated but accepted and even touted in actors and actresses today.

Then, stop and think about the almost mind control being exerted here, due to Mel Gibson saying and thinking things deemed unacceptable.

Either he’s a good actor worth seeing or he’s not. I’m personally sick of being subjected to some amateur indoctrination by every singer and actor. They don’t know squat.

Mel Gibson, to my knowledge, does not attempt to convert people to using sexist taunts or abusive behavior. Leftists in the same position of influence do.

Lay off the guy. How well would you fare if your every move was under a microscope? Ever uttered anything that would set the media to tut-tutting and condemning? How many similar rants have been given a pass for people who are politically correct? I can think of several.

Gibson may be able to make movies under his Icon production banner, but who would consider working with Gibson worth the risk to his or her reputation?

Since Hollyweird alleges itself to be the gold standard of free speech and artistic expression, why should anyone worry about working for Mr. Gibson?

Of course the reality is 90% of them are dumb, intolerant, vindictive and full of hate. See the above "journalist" suggesting Mel be blacklisted.

Gibson certainly has his problems and I sure wish he’d recognize them and work them out.

As for his comments, big deal. They were said in the heat of anger and in what he believed was a private setting. Heck, I’m not a racist, don’t care if folks think I am, and I no longer drink. However, if some of my privately spoken words regarding Obama, his tribe and the 90+% of the Black drooler’s that voted for him were made public, the New Black MooslimEs would be camped outside of my house.

I’m far more concerned about Gibson’s alcohol, and perhaps substance abuse, as well as his obvious anger management issues, than what might come out of his mouth during a fit of anger and/or a drunken stupor. His personal success, money, fame and fortune has not made him happy, we are seeing the results of that unhappiness. IMHO

I love what he has done with his talent, I will continue to love his work, past or in the future... if he has one.

I wish him well.
