  • Gary Oldman Blasts Liberal Hollywood, Defends Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin

    06/24/2014 8:05:27 AM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 44 replies
    In an explosive rant, the British actor claimed that "political correctness is crap," and advised people to "take a f—ing joke." Gary Oldman didn't hold anything back in an interview with Playboy magazine, where he defended Mel Gibson's anti-Semitic remarks, Alec Baldwin's public tirades and went after liberal Hollywood. In a lengthy — and extremely candid — chat for the magazine's July/August issue promoting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the 56-year-old British actor says he believes "political correctness is crap." "I don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those...

    Yahoo ^ | 11 Mar 14 | Allison Hope Weiner
    How ironic is it that Hollywood studios walk on eggshells with faith-based groups hoping their religious epics like Noah do a fraction of the business Mel Gibson did with The Passion Of The Christ, while those studios continue to shun Gibson like a leper? What better way to commemorate Passion‘s 10th anniversary than journalist Allison Hope Weiner‘s examination of her relationship with Gibson and how it evolved from harsh coverage to the point where she feels strongly enough about his good qualities and recovery to urge Hollywood to consider giving him another chance. Weiner has written about Gibson for Deadline...

Robyn, Gibson's wife of nearly 30 years and the mother of their seven children, is walking away with half his fortune, once estimated to be as high as $850 million (according to the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2006) in what is considered the biggest divorce payout in Hollywood history. Because the couple didn't have a prenuptial agreement, Robyn, 55, was legally entitled to half of everything he earned during their marriage, People magazine...

    If there is one thing Mel Gibson understands, it is damnation. The once-lauded actor was able to bring the concept to life in The Passion of the Christ, before the scandals that knocked him from his Hollywood throne and moral pulpit. In The Beaver, directed by and co-starring Jodie Foster, Gibson portrays a man crippled at first by regret and depression, then by the domination of a strange creature that was to be his salvation. Walter Black (Gibson) lies on his bed, paralyzed from what doctors diagnose as depression, although medical labels are inadequate for his existential crisis. The toy...

The star of "The Passion of the Christ," whom First Baptist pastor David Uth described as "more passionate about God" than anyone he's ever met, was in town to give witness to his faith, to urge others to share it and to sell a new all-star audio production of the Bible that he has produced.

Director Mel Gibson brings the struggle and sacrifice of Jesus (portrayed by Jim Caviezel) to life, like nothing ever seen before. Viewers must be cautioned that due to the graphic violence displayed in depicting the horrific death Jesus endured for us, this film is rated TV-MA-V.

    Mel Gibson attempted to commit suicide by "death by cop" after his wife left him and ended their 26 year marriage, according to a friend of the star. The "Braveheart" star apparently tried to goad a police office into drawing his weapon and shoot by hurling anti-Semitic slurs after he was stopped for drink driving. The incident four years ago led to the steady decline of Gibson's once glittering Hollywood career and public shaming. But a close friend has revealed Gibson wasn't anti-Jewish but on a mission to die because he felt he had failed after his wife Robyn had...

Now he is preparing to relaunch his career by playing a man who befriends a hand-puppet beaver after suffering a breakdown. The trailer for Gibson's new film, The Beaver, received its premiere on US television this weekend, amid doubts that it would be the ideal role to kick-start the actor's rehabilitation. Gibson plays Walter Black, a lonely man who is depressed after being abandoned by his family. He begins communicating through the puppet, which he gives a personality and a British accent.

    If you want your new movie to suffer the kiss of death, casting Mel Gibson is probably a good start down that road, since at the moment he’s about as popular as stomach flu. However, that hasn’t stopped him from getting a role in the sequel to The Hangover, aptly titled The Hangover 2. A cameo appearance in the original Hangover movie did wonders for Mike Tyson’s career, so it’s possible that Gibson is wondering if he can follow suit with some comedy of his own. After all, nothing says “hilarious” like a misogynistic racist with violent tendencies and a...

In the interview, the host asked Gibson if the Catholic Church has become “politicised” to the point that it cannot address issues like homosexuality. Gibson responded that the Church would not address homosexuality because “half of the people there in the Vatican are queer." When asked if he thinks that the current Pope is among those homosexuals, Gibson said: “I certainly do,” reports the New York Post. Gibson also called...

The decision is a major setback for the Oscar-winning actor/director, who is facing allegations of domestic abuse and child endangerment. It also lends support to critics who are suggesting Mel won’t be able to recover from the Oksana Grigorieva scandal. Oksana, 40, has accused Gibson, 54, of punching her in the face twice...

    Some of you may recall that early in the morning of July 28 of 2006 actor Mel Gibson was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in Los Angeles, California. During that arrest, it was reported that Gibson was alleged to have launched into a brief but vehement denunciation of Jews that were "responsible for all the wars in the world." Famed at the time for having produced and directed the film The Passion of the Christ (2004), Gibson's anti-Semitic tirade was the feature of news reports throughout the media for weeks after the incident. The same cannot be said, however,...

Like many ultra-conservative Catholics, the Gibsons, pčre et fils, have never forgiven the Vatican for lifting the charge of deicide against the Jews in 1964. Less well-remembered, perhaps, is the interview in which he announced that his wife of...

The clandestine recordings of his serial audio assaults on his gal pal were instant Web and cable-TV sensations — at once a worthy rival to Hollywood’s official holiday releases and a compelling sequel to his fabled anti- Semitic rant of 2006. A true showman, Gibson offered vitriol for nearly all tastes, aiming his profane fusillade at women, blacks and Latinos alike. The invective was tied together by a domestic violence subplot worthy of “Lethal Weapon.” There was even a surprise comic coda, courtesy of...

Earlier today the news surfaced that William Morris Endeavor had split with Gibson last week-- as Limato lay seriously ill, and just several days after Radar Online broke the news that Gibson had verbally abused his girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva by using the N-word.

Unconfirmed reports suggest House speaker Nancy Pelosi was extremely agitated over the comments, while others claimed that she had just woke up on the wrong side of the web......

    Mad Mel Gibson sadistically sneers, "I own you!" to his baby mama in yet another expletive-laced phone recording that surfaced yesterday. The raging actor spits the demeaning words out at ex-gal-pal Oksana Grigorieva as the pair battle over whether she could hire a domestic for their infant daughter, Lucia. "You're a f - - king using whore! Now, I own you!" Gibson reportedly tells Grigorieva over the phone during the 6-minute rant posted on RadarOnline. "Do not use [the domestic] at your house! I have warned you she will be fired if she goes to your house. You find that...

    Hmmm. Let’s see if we have this straight. Tea Party activists opposing big-spending programs by a Democratic President who happens to be black? Racist. Big Hollywood star tells girlfriend that her tight clothes will get her raped by “a pack of f*****g n******s”? Nuanced. Even Joy Behar has trouble with Whoopi Goldberg’s attempt to use the “some of Mel Gibson’s best friends are black” defense on The View, and the two start playing their Complete Moral Authority cards in a liberal meltdown. Pass the popcorn and watch the clip from Mediaite: You can say he’s being a bonehead but I...

    Mel Gibson, under investigation for domestic violence, admits to hitting Oksana Grigorieva and TWICE threatens to kill her in an explosive new audio tape obtained and released exclusively by RadarOnline.com. The enraged actor tells the mother of his eight-month old daughter Lucia “you deserved it” after she says that he hit her and broke her teeth. Mel’s stunning admission could be a powerful piece of evidence against him in the criminal investigation that is headed for the district attorney’s office and right now being conducted by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. The new tape features a ranting, out-of-control, Mel who...

    Mel Gibson's career may not be able to recover from this one. Confirming rumors that have swirled for the last week, RadarOnline.com posted a two minute audio clip Friday in which Gibson unleashes a horrific, profanity-laced tirade against his former lover Oksana Grigorieva. In the audio recording, Gibson is heard exploding at his ex, who is also the mother of his 8-month-old daughter. First he attacks her for having breast implants, and escalates his verbal assaults from there....

    Mel Gibson seemed to weather the media firestorm that followed his drunk-driving arrest and anti-Semitic rant in 2006. A handful of Hollywood types called for a boycott, but Gibson’s apology tour somewhat smoothed things over. But the latest example of the actor’s bigotry—tapes of him threatening his girlfriend with awful racist and sexist taunts—is surely the final nail in the coffin. Gibson’s been dropped by his agency, William Morris Endeavor, just after his longtime agent Ed Limato died. He hasn’t been a bankable star much recently, even though peers like Bruce Willis still nab action roles. Gibson may be able...

    Mel Gibson said he has formed an exploratory committee to enter the race for the West Virginia Senate seat left vacant by klugle Robert Byrd. "Race? Did someone say race?" said Gibson. "I never said anything about race." Gibson said initial polls indicate he does have credentials for the position in West Virginia. Norman Lincoln Rockwell, III, former West Virginia speech writer, said that the actor uses a very similar vocabulary as the late Senator Byrd. "I could see his natural grasp of the language and the epithet would be very similar to the esteemed klugle Byrd," said Rockwell. "Heck,...

    LOS ANGELES — Mel Gibson is being investigated in a possible domestic violence incident involving his ex-girlfriend earlier this year, sheriff's officials said Thursday. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department listed the actor-director as a potential suspect in the alleged attack on Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva at an undisclosed location in Malibu.
