Britney Spears has dinner with Mel Gibson

I know Hollywood is a weird place, but this story is strange even for those standards. Britney Spears, fresh from her recent taping of a small role on the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” was seen having dinner with actor Mel “Sugartits” Gibson on Saturday evening.

Only on Planet Britney. On Saturday Britney Spears started the day with another visit from her sons Preston and Jayden, and ended the evening at a Russian restaurant for a dinner meeting with Mel Gibson.

The actor and the pop star – once neighbors in an exclusive Malibu community – were part of a two-hour group dinner at the Romanov restaurant in Studio City on Saturday.

“It was exciting to have both of them here together,” says one restaurant source. “We heard they hit it off and that Britney seemed excited.”

Clad in jeans, a green top and boots and chewing gum, Spears arrived at the Romanov restaurant with her friend Victoria. Gibson, accompanied by a few friends, soon joined them in the restaurant’s private dining room, which features a 24-karat gold leaf ceiling, an ornate fireplace and a library stocked with such works as Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace. For two hours the group dined on filet mignon and Russian specialties, and drank water and soft drinks.

Leaving the restaurant for her Studio City home around 8:15, Spears “looked happy,” says an observer, “so it seems the meeting was a success.”


Why do we care if the library at this restaurant carries “War and Peace”? It’s not like either of these people are going to read it. I’m way more interested in which boots Britney was wearing– I hope she wasn’t wearing those disgusting brown ones. It’s been a while since those boots have seen the light of day, which I am going to take as a positive sign. Those boots are right up there with the pink wig in terms of being a signal of crazy.

The more pressing question is: What on earth do these two people have to talk about?

    I see it right away:
    They both can share what its like to have the press and public brandish you as crazy and out of control: what it feels like, how it effects your ife and relationships, etc.
    I see a lot of sympathizing and connecting on those terms…

    But alas I did see a glimpse of brown boot on her legs 🙁
