Mel is a drunk. Until/if he gets clean, no amount of criticism, ridicule, counseling etc. will make a dent in his behavior.
All of these threads and outraged responses will ever be anything but noise.
Time is everything with stardom.
I wonder how Gibson compares to Richard Burton?
Famous for alcoholism and epic fights with Liz Taylor- he must have been a horror to live with.
Yet- he is still considered a ‘great actor’ and all of that is gone from the public mind.
I don’t know if they can be compared as actors. But Gibson’s stardom surely equals Burton’s then.
As I said- ‘colorful’ language, drunken binges and self-destructive behavior are nothing new in Hollywood. Private behavior being exposed is- and PC is the new morality that will damage him most.
ever = never
