Not that me not ever giving him another dime is going to mean anything to him, but it means something to me.


Can't even remember the last MG movie I saw Definitely had no intereste in Passion of the Christ, or whatever that was called. And definitely no desire to see any of his past work. I wonder what his co-stars would have to say about him.

YouTube - Whoopi Goldberg Defends Mel Gibson's Racist Rant - FUTURISTIC BLOGGER

I'm confused.

So Whoopi saying "I'm a friend of Mel's, he's not racist" is the equivalent of a racist crying "I can't be racist! My best friend is black!!!!"

Well, to be honest, racism is the least of his problems in these recent recordings.

I don't think anyone would argue that he is a misogynist. That more than any racism is what comes in sickeningly clear in both of the recordings that I heard.

Oh, definitely. I'm only commenting on that little snippet of The View. If they talked about Mel's other little problems (like, ohhhhh, spousal abuse and making death threats) .... ugh, I don't even want to see/hear it.

I can only take about 1:30 of The View in one sitting. Less time if Elisabeth Hasselbeck is whining talking.

You've never seen Braveheart? Wow. I gotta say, that's surprising. I thought that was kind of required viewing for people living through the '90s.

Anyway, Mel's character gets tortured and disemboweled and beheaded at the end of the film, so you might find some enjoyment in that scene at least.

He's obviously an absolute dick in real life but I'm a firm believer that you should love the art, not the artist, so what he does in his private life (positive or negative) has no bearing on my enjoyment of his films.
I was talking about his recent movies. I can separate the art from the artist too, but at this point he's such a huge turnoff for me that I can't do it and I don't want to. If I tried to watch a movie of his that's all I'd be thinking about, so what's the point?

Whoopi defended Polanski too, remember it wasn't "rape rape". So I don't give her opinion any weight whatsoever and wouldn't even bother watching that clip. She really enjoys playing devil's advocate and that she's holier than thou for giving everyone the benefit of the doubt to an extreme. She's just a superior human

Check out the thread in FYM-on second thought, don't

I agree with you

She really should have just stuck to playing nuns on the run and such.

It wasn't "rape rape" because obviously the 13 year old girl who was slipped drugs wanted it.

I very rarely venture in that forum, with good reason. I try to come here for laughs mostly, don't find many in there.
