Mel Gibson at ‘The Beaver’ premiere in Cannes: reptilian, leathery or just gross?


Here are some photos from Tuesday night’s premiere of The Beaver in Cannes. Mel Gibson actually showed for the premiere, after skipping the earlier photo call. Judging from the state of Mel, I’d say that he probably spent most of the day doing shots and smoking cigs while laying on a hotel balcony. More on that in a moment, but seriously, Mel is looking especially reptilian in these photos. Jodie, meanwhile, looks rather gorgeous in this striking navy Armani. I love the asymmetrical cut on the top, and I’m usually not a fan of asymmetry.

By the way, when Mel Gibson entered the theatre for the premiere, apparently he got a standing ovation. FOR TEN MINUTES. And the film was generally well-received too. Because Europeans love women-beaters?

For the rest of the photos, I thought I’d do captions. Just because I haven’t done that in a while.

Mel: “And I said ‘blow me’ and she said ‘NO!’ Can you believe that? Durr. So I had to smack her.”


Mel: “You’re a WHAT?!? You like to do WHAT to LADIES?!? You‘re going to hell.”


Jodie: “Ew, did you just fart?”


Mel: “I wish I had my guns right now. I would take down all of these Frenchies.”


Remember how I said Mel probably spent his day laying out on balcony, getting hammered? Yeah. There’s photo evidence. His poor sunburned moobs. They deserve to buried in the rose garden.

    Disgusting pig

  2. Muffy says:

    In that second picture he looks like George W., yikes! It’s great that Jodie loves him and stands by him, good for her, but it doesn’t negate the fact that he is a douche.

  3. Red says:

    That’s some sweeping generalization about Europeans

  4. Elj says:

    Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. There goes my lunch.

  5. Rose says:

    Why yes ALL Europeans love wife beaters, I’m going to go see if I can rile my husband up to give me a smack after lunch.
    Seriously guys.

  6. Waldemar says:

    Can we please leave every European out of this and focus on JUST the morons who gave that ovation. Thanks!

  7. Kaiser says:

    The IMF guy, Roman Polanski, now Mel. Men who abuse women DO tend to be embraced by Europe. And you can say whatever you want about Linnocent getting a standing ovation in LA. We deserve to be criticized for that.

  8. VV says:

    The captions are awesome lol The second pic is my favorite. “…you’re going to hell.”

  9. Waldemar says:

    Again, focus on the morons who gave Roman Polanski a shelter, applauded Mel and I don’t know who stood up for that IMF guy, but leave the other 501 million Europeans out of it.

    Just because some audience in a studio responded on a call card, does not make every American an @Innocent. Even I know that.

  10. Kaiser says:

    For God’s sake. I think you guys are being overly sensitive about this shit, but I’ll draw a line through it.

  11. snappyfish says:

    Caught Mad Max while channel surfing the other night…He was so handsome. Just shows that ugly on the inside will eventually show on the outside.

  12. Waldemar says:

    @ Kaiser. Perhaps I am. Thanks anyway. You do seem to have lost your Kitten Gravatar, though : (

  13. Eve says:

    Assholes. Both Gibson and the idiots who applauded him.

  14. poodlemom says:

    Just gross. And Skeevy.

  15. Calli Pygian says:

    D) All of the above.

    Gynecomastia = boozehound

  16. carrie says:

    too tan and he looks good for his age and the movie was well-liked in cannes

  17. Zoya says:

    Goddamn he is gross.

  18. original kate says:

    in the last photo it looks as though there are cross-hairs over his dong; fitting, really.

  19. lola says:

    jesus, yesterday you guys bitched he didn’t show and now you bitch that he does!

  20. jello says:

    Wow. Way to take a few extreme examples and generalize about an entire European population. Surely you really don’t want someone doing the same thing about Americans?

  21. Crash2GO2 says:

    Oh yeah, that’s just what his giant sick ego needs. A 10 minute standing ovation!! WTF??!

  22. MooHoo says:

    You can’t generalize about Europeans like that and say we embrace that kind of man. maybe you should say, certain so-called artists and elements of the entertainment industry embrace men like that, and not just beaters and rapers, philanderers too. Remember sharon stone avidly sticking up for Arnie when he was accused of being a harasser when running for governor or california? And she’s american. I am sure she knew what was going on on film sets all those years.
    And whats that about the IMF guy? no one i know is embracing him over here. they do think his arrest and the whole story is a plot by sarkozy though 🙂

  23. LunaT says:

    @Snappyfish—good call.

    He does not look like he wants to be there. At all.

  24. PICOPINK says:

    Hilarious Kaiser!!!!!Thanks for making me smile. You nailed his look-leathery, reptilian and gross!!

  25. sapphire says:

    Both. And don’t hate on our Euro cousins- there are the same industry skanks there as in Hollywood.

  26. Str8Shooter says:

    @Muffy: ‘Its great that she stands by him…good for her.’

    Really? Why is that? Because blind loyalty to homophobic, anti-semitic drunken bigots is somehow a good character trait?

  27. Amanda G says:

    It makes me sick that he is getting ovations and a 2nd (3rd?) wind on his career. Pig!

  28. girl says:

    I find it interesting that he is still wearing a scapular.

    It seems like whatever color he has in his face ends about 2 inches into his hairline. Like he dunked his head in a bowl of makeup or something.

    Jodie Foster looks good. I really am curious to see this movie.

  29. Anoni Mus says:

    He doesn’t look that bad, only overly tanned (fake or otherwise).

    Why can’t these two be a couple. They look well together.

    Otherwise. Meh… don’t know if I’ll see the movie.

  30. KERRY says:

    I think that i will vomit. Gibson is so DISGUSTING!

  31. Camille says:

    Does anyone remember when MG was attractive? A loooong time ago. He is NOT aging well, at all. Ugly inside and out.

    Jodie looks nice.

  32. Jen34 says:

    Jodie looks smashing. Mel, not so much. I remember when he was gorgeous. He looks like a guy who has broken all the rules, and karma took it out on his looks.

  33. Trashaddict says:

    Muffy: nah, not Bush. Hasselhoff. Eeeeew. Maybe Jodie just wants a walking advertisement for the advantages of being a lesbian. After all, which one of these two would you sleep with?

  34. harfang says:

    Well jeez, it’s a pleasant surprise that Jodie lives enough in the real world to do a good job at the peripheral aspects of her… job. Mel cannot even get that together. Even for this movie that is their grody love child.

    Seriously, she looks fantastic. In the
    ’90s it was straight boys that would look at her and say “What a waste.” Now it is my turn. O Jodie, I hardly knew ye.

  35. frewt says:

    All of the above. He’s actually out-craggied Tommy Lee Jones.

  36. Newbie says:

    Clicked on this thread to see what Foster was wearing. Hmm. Underwhelming.

  37. Chris says:

    Europeans aren’t the only people at the Canne Film Festival.

  38. Jazz says:

    I’m going to say all of the above as well. What’s that saying, that you end up with the face you deserve?

  39. Eve says:

    @ Frewt:

    All of the above. He’s actually out-craggied Tommy Lee Jones.


    You take that back. You take that back right now!

    Tommy Lee Jones is my favorite tough guy in the business. He has a craggy face but it’s also a lovely rugged face, I’ll always love every little wrinkle he has (well, maybe not the ones you must be thinking about now…you guys have a really dirty mind, geez!).

  40. Em says:

    @Muffy: ‘Its great that she stands by him…good for her.’
    It’s good to have a real friend when you are struggling. Gibson is authentic and real, nothing fake of plastic about him – there aren’t many of those about, especially in Hollyweird.

    He does not look like he wants to be there. At all.

  41. kathy says:

    You go celebitchy !!! Are you a woman or just a wannabe woman? Anyway, your efforts at humiliating and judging an artist who has human failings in his life is quite disturbing to me. Hope you sleep well at night — since you are so perfect, shouldn’t be a problem for you.
    PS — many of us in the public are tired of your hatefulness against the man, and lack of respect for the artist.

  42. Tammy says:

    Just watching Lethal Weapon on T.v.. I just can’t get over what happened to that gorgeous specimen of a man!! He is so easy to drool over on the movie and then you look at these pics and ….ewwwww!! amazing….
