In Case You Were Wondering, Mel Gibson Hates Gays Too

GibsonOn Friday, Gawker posted a laundry list of Mel Gibson's past rants, which include invective directed at gays.

"They take it up the ass. [laughs, stands up, bends over, points to anus] This is only for taking a shit." —to Spanish newspaper El Pais when asked what he thinks of gays, in 1991.

"With this look, who's going to think I'm gay? I don't lend myself to that type of confusion. Do I look like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?" —from the El Pais interview.

"I'll apologize when hell freezes over. They can fuck off." —to Playboy in 1995, about whether he'd issue an apology to gays and lesbians, as GLAAD recommended.

The audio of Gibson's rant against his girlfriend, AFTER THE JUMP (nsfw graphic, racist language)...

UPDATE: A new, second tape has emerged.

  1. And the sky is blue.

    Why does everyone keep giving this guy publicity? Just let him vanish into obscurity where he can wallow in his hate alone and forgotten.

  2. He might be rich, he might be talented. He might once have been a box-office draw. Today he's a sad and pathetic has-been filled with hate and anger. Move on people nothing more to see here. There are many fine performers more worthy of our attention.

  3. It's about TIME the public noticed what a Nazi this guy has always been. I suppose that's what comes from being born into his Dad's Phelps-like Catholic offshoot cult. It's not by accident that Mel had to found his own church to enjoy his toxic doctrines.

  4. When a man has made a good living based on his good looks (& minimal acting skills) , I think that man will melt down as he looks in the mirror now. He looks like a gray elephant with his pale skin.
    I think he's spiraling down into a bad mess.
    I was an alcoholic for 15 years & lost many friends because they said in the final years, I got very mean. Booze is poison.
    I've been sober a long time using Rational Recovery. No meetings, no sponsors, no "higher power".

    The best thing to do is never ever see or rent a M.G. film. Money talks.

  5. *Sigh* And he was so pretty to look at in "Gallipoli" and "The Year of Living Dangerously." Tone is right -- "sad and pathetic . . . filled with hate."

  6. But he's a very, very good Christian. Just ask him.

  7. Pretty is as pretty does.

  8. I'm sure Elton John will step up and give Mel his seal of approval.

  10. Does anyone other than the companies that are set to release Mel's new movies really care about Mel Gibson anymore?

    Most people in Hollywood know he's always been an asshole but most were too afraid to confront the nice Catholic alcoholic. Took his baby mama to bring him to his knees. Hope she gets a sizeable chunk of child support and is smart enough to climb out of the toxic sludge that is Mel Gibson.

    A downfall long coming and well deserved. Congrats Mel, you've always been your own worst enemy and the world has been enlightened to your charm.

  13. Of course no one cared when it was just homophobia, he was still America's darling. Hell he won the best picture Oscar that very year. With the sexism, anti-semitism and now racism though, he's crossed a line that just cannot be tolerated.

  14. I don't think we can blame the booze, probably was Mel all along. I'm sure the emotionally troubled childhood did not help.

  15. I've heard that his agency has now let him go. Poor, misunderstood Mel The only reason he's so misunderstood is because he's ranting incoherently.

    Goodbye you washed-up has been.

  16. I think Mel Gibson is a true Christian. After all, every red cent he made off The Passion was donated to charity.

    Oh wait, he didn't? He bought a private island in Fiji instead? Oh.

    I guess that whole "it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle" thing wasn't what Jesus meant when he said it.

  17. On behalf of all the gays on Earth, Mel, we are SO glad you're not one of us! On the other hand, so sorry you were able to reproduce.

  18. Actually, he kind of resembles those old guys that are profiled in the police blotter because they went cruising in the woods and got caught.

  19. In vino veritas

  20. Who cares what he thinks about us??!! At this point he has ZERO credibility. Those in the business distanced themselves after his last tirade. He's no longer bankable and a huge PR risk. His last film only grossed enough to make up its cost. He'll be remembered as a bigoted lunatic. Good riddance!

  21. he's such an asshole...what a much??? pathetic....

  22. @piper

    completely agree with you. fun factoid, though: most hollywood movies are ultimately a financial loss (i.e., they cost more than they bring in). the studios depend on a couple big blockbusters a year to make up the difference and to generate profit.

  23. Gee, Mel, what a shame. You've gone from Road Warrior to road kill. Get help, Mel, before you kill yourself.

  25. William Morris Endeavor dropped him. He's finished. Limato is dead - and so is Mel Gibson's career. Let's let it go.
