Mel Gibson & Madeleine Stowe did a public photo-op together: WTF?

God, I hope Madeleine Stowe enjoys performing beejs in the Jacuzzi, or this relationship is going to end badly. So this is your “WTF?” post of the day – Madeleine and Mad Mel Gibson walking along some road together in Santa Monica. Fame Pictures says they had lunch together, then took a “stroll”. They’ve known each other for years – they worked together in We Were Soldiers… So is Madeleine one of Mel’s few loyal Hollywood friends? Did she get roped into this lunch date under false pretenses? Is she being drugged? I ask because her eyes look a little druggy in a few of the shots, and she seems less engaged with the photographers than Mel.

I guess this photo op with Madeleine could be part of Mel’s rehabilitation – God knows, there’s only so much that Robert Downey Jr. and Jodie Foster can do. Please don’t even consider the idea that Mel and Madeleine are having some kind of romantic relationship – she’s been with her husband, Brian Benben for years and decades. Hopefully, Madeleine wants no part of Mel. Hopefully, she just ran into him and didn’t know how to get out of having lunch with him. ???

I have two more Mad Mel stories. One, remember how screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and his son recorded Mel Gibson throwing an obscene tantrum, and they made the tape public because why not? Well, Eszterhas is also going to be writing a book (an E-book) about his relationship with Mel called Heaven and Mel. Clever (eh) – you can read more about it here.

Second story – Mel’s dad Hutton (who is in his 90s) has filed for divorce from his 70-something wife. You’ll never guess the reason – it’s because the wife wants to stop Hutton’s medication to accelerate his death. So Mel and Hutton’s other kids are getting involved and trying to make sure Hutton lives forever. I can’t believe Mel Gibson is in the midst of a “right to die” controversy in his own family.

    No!!! I was so happy for her comeback on REVENGE, this has to be some sort of mistake.

    • Melissa says:

      From what I have heard, Madeleine is a real sweetheart. Maybe she is just too big of a sweetie to see what a douche Mel is?

    • Maguita says:

      Oh I so unfortunately disagree N, she was beyond horrible on REVENGE.

      She was the worst actor on that show, just awful, from her frozen over-botoxed coucou stare à la Shining nurse to her dispassionately frigid embrace with her painter lover.

      Just… Awful. Gone are the days of the naturally beautiful and ardent Madeleine in the Last of the Mohicans.

    He just never looks quite right. The crazy is barely contained below the surface.

    I am also ashamed to admit I watched The Beaver last week because it was on Showrime. And I have to say it was really good! Jodi Foster did a wonderful job directing and if I didn’t hate Mel so much I would say he did a great job too. Jennifer Lawerance is in it!!!

    • ds says:

      Ok I know he’s a crazy douche but I don’t get the hollywood hypocrisy: he’s a really good actor and a decent director an I would see his films no matter how stupid he may be in real life. He does his job on screen well. Just like Tom Cruise- I so don’t care what he does in his private life and he obviously is insane but that doesn’t make him less of an actor. So call me crazy but I’ll go and see Mel’s movie.

      • Alexa says:

        I’ll never pay to see this misogynist, racist, homophobic POS’ films.

      • Choupette says:

        There are way worse people in Hollywood. She looks very pretty in that top, and I love her jeans.

        Freedom of speech applies to everyone, not just those that spout words we want to hear. I don’t agree with his rants, but he’s been drunk in most of them. The man has problems. He also has a temper. I’ll take him over Michael Bay any day of the week. Mel isn’t molesting boys, handing coke to young starlets, or saying “Give me a bj if you want a job.” There are too many of those guys in Hollywood. Mel Gibson has done a lot of good in the world. He ruined it for himself with moments of stupidity.

      • Jazzmin says:

        ds I totally agree, the only reason some people are still upset at Mel and refuse to support his work is because his skeletons are out of the closet. Imagine all the Hollywood actors/directors/producers who are closeted racist/pedophiles/misogynist and we still support them and their works? So basically if everyone’s skeletons in Hollywood were out, the whole industry would go bankrupt!!

    Madeleine is incredible on “Revenge”. She makes the show. She looks great except for the little too much Juvederm which is injected into her lips.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      Also obvious is the breast augmentation. Madeline had to be the least busty woman I have ever seen, and now she has a set of perky C cups at 40-something. She does look fantastic though.

      • Vesper says:

        According to Wikipedia she is 54! I can’t believe how good she looks, not just her face, but her body. She is in amazing shape. The pics don’t even do her body justice because in Revenge she constantly wears skin tight dresses and she looks hot. Everybody talks about Jennifer Aniston being in good shape at what, 42. What a joke, she can’t hold a candle to Madeleine

        Revenge is one of my favourite shows, and I think Madeleine is by far the best actor in it. I hope to see her in more movies in the future.

    • Izzy says:

      I kinda thought her “druggy” look was more the result of an overdone brow/eye-lift procedure.

      • Luise says:

        Well take a close look of her upper lip and then compare it to pics of her in the 1990’s. It’s totally inflated….looks like a link sausage. I’m sure she’s probably had everything else done known to man but it’s the lip that grabs me.

  4. Candyland says:

    Wowsie, Mel sure does like him those Oksana look alikes.

    How does somebody who looks and acts like a toad get him such beautiful women?

  5. Loralei says:

    Looks like I won’t be seeing any Madeleine Stowe movies ever again. Too bad, I liked her. The Gibson family’s religion condemns divorce…..I guess that rule just applies to everyone except them. What a bunch of hippocritical antisemmites and bigots. (not to mention misogynists).

  6. Mia 4S says:

    More and more I think Mel has been diagnosed with sort of mental illness or psychosis. It would go a long way towards explaining friends still trying to help him. It in no way excuses his behavior (no way in hell!) but it would make a lot of sense.

    • Vesper says:

      Mental illness can’t be blamed for racism, and misogyny.

      • Sherry says:

        The man was married to the same woman for 20 plus years and has had some of the best movies to come out of Hollywood. He has been dealing with a lot of personal issues and that combined with booze is a lethal combination. People need to realize that we’ve all done things we’re not proud of and stop bring so sanctimonious. He’s entitled to the same forgiveness purple have shown to many other projet who have done far worse..

      • Sherry says:

        My gosh….aren’t you people a bunch of sanctimonious hypocrites..?! He has put out some of the best movies to come out of Hollywood. He has said stupid things while drinking…gee, that’s unusual. Get over it..!!

  7. the original bellaluna says:

    Maybe they were both eating at the same place and decided to share a table? Because I really like Revenge. It’s the only new show from last season that I liked AND that was actually renewed!

  8. Jazzmin says:

    In Hollywood it’s OK if you cheat on your spouse and leave her/him for your co-star aka Joe Eszterhas. It’s also OK in Hollywood if your are a raving drug addict and alcoholic, they will forgive all that and help you land jobs/revive your career. But! say anything negative about Jews? your career is dead. BLOOP!

    • Izzy says:

      No offense, but I don’t think the “sugart!ts” comment helped. Hollywood doesn’t like sexist all that much either…

    • endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

      Ooh. Risky statement. But I concur! Also for the record, I have no bias to any religion, I don’t partake in any, so it’s with some distance that I say, this is actually a good point. Things like misogyny, pedophilia, latent racism (ie ethnic actors that have caucasian features?) all fine. But anti-semitism is a no-go. Understandable since Hollywood is a tight community with a strong Jewish showing, why would they tolerate it? But they should clear out the rest of the trash while they’re cleaning…

  9. Amy says:

    She’s killer on Revenge, but gosh is she botoxed to high heaven or what. Her face couldn’t move if she wanted it to.

  10. Patricia says:

    Watched Tequila Sunrise recently and was thoroughly blown away by how hot Mel used to be. I liked him back then but had forgotten the true extent of his hottness. I was mesmerised. I think he is (was) just about the best looking man I’ve ever seen. I don’t know what he did to end up looking so hideous but what a shame. Of coure being a complete dick doesn’t help. That’s an even bigger shame.

  11. Joan says:

    Weird photo-op for sure. Seems like Mel is trying to suck-up in a big way. On the flip side, it is so refreshing to see that Madeleine and Ben are still together after so many years. 🙂

  12. Feebee says:

    Mel may be a POS, his rants certainly confirm that but let’s not condemn his friends for standing by him. If I had a good friend who suddenly turned into the devil I’d be trying to find out what the fu&k was going on, not simply desert them. You can be friends and not agree with everything they stand for or they way they flip out. It was lunch and a walk…….

    • Original Lucy says:

      exactly…and just because he is horrible in a romantic relationship, does not mean that he is a horrible friend…just ask Robert Downey jr., Danny Glover, Whoopee Goldberg, Jodie Foster…and many more…and all these people who won’t see mel’s movies, let me ask this…do you see Woody Allen movies or Roman Polanski movies? Those creeps are a million times worse than Mel!

  13. Lisa says:

    Uh oh. Is she a $cientologist, too?

  14. dahlianoir says:

    How old is she ? She looks fine.

  15. Maritza says:

    I bet they are planning to do a movie together.

  16. Mara says:

    Mel Gibson will always be my favorite actor his personal life is not my business and Madeleine is such a beautiful woman she look so young for her age.

  17. Ravensdaughter says:

    Madeline Stowe does not look like Madeline Stowe at all-I think she’s in her late 40’s? Whatever she did to her face, she looks good, but she doesn’t look like the Madeline Stowe of “Last of the Mohicans”, etc.

  18. Jazmin says:

    Hey, crazy people need love too!

    He definitely has a type doesn’t he?

  19. Mai says:

    Mel Gibson’s movies are among my top favorites. Why so much hate ? What’s wrong with him ?

    • Debra says:

      He is one nasty racist, mysoginist, woman-beater alcoholic plus he looks really awful. No enough?

  20. Ella says:

    I never understand the point of friends “vouching” for the character of a known abuser. It makes no difference whatsoever that a wife-beating jerk is nice to his colleagues.

  21. mary simon says:

    he is an ugly, hairy, abusive goon who has aged very badly – he is absolutely revolting. he will never come back from all the years of idiocy. he’s over.
