Alcoholism is a family- and a character-killer, it's true. At best, he could add vitality to the Australian film industry. But the road ahead must contain true rehabilitation.
I saw a most intriguing interview with the gay and Jewish Harvey Levin, the lawyer and astute businessman behind the showbiz gossip enterprise TMZ. He was surprisingly compassionate about the Gibson meltdown, implying that Gibson is experiencing a deep self-loathing as he realizes just how badly he has blown it with his family over a younger woman who turns out to be a shark.
In agreement with everything you wrote, and with what Mr Levin says, as well. I can imagine that a man might well have a complete breakdown from the realization that he has lost his wife of many years, the respect of his children, the respect of millions of people, his career, and half a billion dollars, for a golddigging whore who set him up. In essence he has been (I don’t want to say “victim,” because he is quite guilty in this) used by a semi-pro con artist who exploited his own very weak character.
I dislike excusing alcoholics for the damage they do on grounds that “it’s an illness, they can’t help it.” But I pray that Mel finds help for his alcoholism and rage, and comes back to his faith.
Harvey Levin is a dick...nothing redeeming about him
one rung up the dung heap from Perez Hilton
Levin is a gay Jewish(like u said) dwarf
