In reply, Mel buried a broad ax in Leonardo’s skull.

But I bet Mr. DiCaprio would be perfectly willing to work in Roman Polanski film.

Seems to be thinking for himself pretty well. Gibson’s life chaos is sure to effect the schedule of the movie if not the quality. And with as well as DiCaprio’s career is going there’s simply no reason for him to risk his schedule working a person that right now is a bad PR machine. This is the smart move.

Do you think it’s moronic for DiCaprio to consider the reaction of his fan base - which is composed significantly of women? Maybe he’s just considering his income stream.

As much as I think Mel Gibson is a total loon, a sorry excuse for a man, and a raving racist; the man does know story structure and narrative.

I look forward to seeing the movie (go Vikings!) and hope his personal demons do not adversely affect his work.

DiCaprio thinks he's so hot. Frankly, I can't stand him.

He can't compare to the old timers who have passed OR MEL.

DiCaprio sucked as a tough guy in Gangs of New York...his “Viking” image would be laughable...this is Hollywood’s version of a tough guy? Shite on him...

What a shame, if that child serial rapist Roman Polanski ever came to the States to make a movie the Hollywood hypocrites would line up to be in it. Since Mel is a religious conservative he gets persecuted.

His crime is not domestic abuse...he is still being punished for having the temerity to film The Passion of Christ.

There is NO CHANCE I would see a Leonerdo DiCaprio movie regardless of who directed it.

Now there is a chance I’ll see me’s Viking movie since it won’t be starring a sissy with a barely visible goatee to somehow make him look older or more manly or something...

I had a bit of a hard time believing him in the Departed as well. Everyone else in the Irish gang just seemed so much harder.

I don't think he's a racist at all. He just blurts stuff out...the context means nothing....EXCEPT when he says personal stuff like she looks like a wh....which she does.

I think he's more angry with himself that he got caught up with her. Mel's one of the good guys.

Leonardo has only had one good scene in his entire career, when he drowned in “Titanic.”

He was quite good in his latest film though --- INCEPTION ( a terribly confusing movie in my view ).

I was at my local library...Close to Easter. The librarian was Jewish and all of the sudden, she started talking about Mel and his arrogance in releasing the Passion at Easter time.

She had a real hate for him. I was stunned as I'm a Catholic.

Well, someone else do a Viking movie, because one needs to be made.

And please spare us a battle-ax wielding ingenue.

What about the part when he was shot dead in the Oscar Winning film by Martin Scorsese — THE DEPARTED ?

I think Mel simply shifts roles as needed. Everyone does it.

And guess what....most folks going through breakups argue and swear and call each other names...It's really pretty damn normal.

Walking out on his wife of 28 years hasn't really helped Mel's "religious conservative" image.

Mel only needs to look in the mirror to see the man who has caused all his troubles.

Mr. DiCaprio has had plenty of opportunities to work with Roman Polanski. As far as I can tell, he hasn't.

Me, I punish him because that flick wasn't in English.

I'll not watch any foreign-language movies.

Otherwise, he can bad-mouth all the gold diggers he wants.

It *is*?

I figured his biggest fan base was the SanFran Boys Club.

Every time Bill The Butcher came onscreen, DiCaprio seemed to mysteriously vanish into thin air.

[did any other women notice that, too?]

I still like Mel. The good far outweighs the bad. As a Jew I should write him off due to his anti-Semitic remarks....but I don’t. Mel is OK with me.

We wouldn’t know about Mel insulting blacks and using the n-word except that his gold digger girlfriend did a number on him
