Who was the most insane person at the ‘Machete Kills’ juggernaut of crazy premiere?

This is what happens when I come to work in the morning: first I check my favorite sites for leads (Page Six, Us Weekly, People, etc), then I go through the photos that have come in overnight. This morning, when I began to glance through this photo set for the Machete Kills premiere, I thought, “Huh, maybe I’ll cover this if nothing is happening today, maybe the Sofia Vergara photos.” And then I kept seeing crazy photo after crazy photo. Seriously, you could get a contact-high of CRAZY from this red carpet. Some of the people in attendance: Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Paris Hilton, Danny Trejo, Jake and Gary Busey, Gene Simmons & Shannon Tweed, Josh Brolin, Rick Schroder (!!!), and director Robert Rodriguez with what looked like an underage girlfriend. Seriously, this is like the most epic jam of f—knuttery I have ever seen. And I’m absolutely SHOCKED that Charlie Sheen wasn’t there?!

Anyway, these are the photos if you care. I guess this is just Robert Rodriguez’s thing now, employing Danny Trejo and seeing what kind of crazy people will say “yes” to a few days of work in the damn desert.

Regarding Mel Gibson – the tabloids have been going on and on for weeks about how Mel looks like he’s been roiding. Mel got a job on The Expendables 3, and he was photographed in a wifebeater (cough), looking extremely beefy. When Mel was asked about steroids, he said: “That’s just hard work. Have you seen the side-effects of some of that crap? Forget it, that’s too scary. Some people say, ‘It’s inconceivable, how can he do that?’ Well, I have always had that body type to do that… I have never worked out three times a week in my entire life,” he said. “It’s actually helped. My lower back feels better. My weight has stayed exactly the same, except my pants fit.” So, rest easy tonight knowing that Mel Gibson is still a woman-beater but at least he’s not a roid-monster woman-beater.

    Sofia is the ONLY one that looks good. My God, what a band of freaks the rest are…

    • V4Real says:

      That’s a whole lot of crazy for one red carpet and I love it. It made me laugh. Where’s Alba and Michelle Rodriguez; didn’t they both return for the sequel.

  2. Patricia says:

    I had no idea that Trejo was that small!
    Sofia took this event waaaaaaay too seriously haha.
    Of course Paris would be there.
    Lastly, I literally scrolled as fast as possible to get away from the pics of Mad Mel. He is so disturbing to even look at. Leather face and crazy eyes was all I saw as I scrolled quickly away.

  3. Happyhat says:

    Who’s that small child with Robert Rodriguez?

    Man…I hate Mel Gibson so much. I can now only stomach Braveheart, Lethal Weapon, Mad Max and Signs. Which is quite good considering.

    I mean, with Tom Cruise, it’s Legend and Minority Report and then NOTHING! So well done Mel…you are marginally less irksome than Tom Cruise, even though you are a woman-hating anti semitic asshole.

    And can you just imagine what kind of parties these guys hold? Horrible horrible parties…like Eyes Wide Shut crossed with Project X crossed with…date rape.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Really? As much as I dislike Cruise, Gibson is 1,000,000 times worse IMO. Shall I get the links of the tapes to refresh everyone’s memory?

      He’s a pretty awful person-misogynistic, racist, verbally abusive and just a general POS.

    • doofus says:

      you do better than I do.

      I can’t watch a SINGLE MOVIE by sMel or Tiny Tom.

      a shame, because I used to enjoy a few movies from both actors.

  4. bammer says:

    Hot mess. Omg @ RR’s “date” she does look straight out of 10th grade.

  5. HiHa says:

    Mel looks drunk.

  6. mommak918 says:

    Oy, my head hurts from these pics. They’re all crazy!

    Btw, I went to the same film school that RR…and yea, he is a nut. But he is good to everyone who he employees and he comes to UT to give seminars and talks. So, least he gives time to the students…along with his band of misfits.

  7. Kate says:

    Is there any chance that’s one of Rodriguez’s daughters? Not sure that would make it much better though, given the way they’re posing.

    I wonder if Mel Gibson and Josh Brolin swapped wife beating stories? Real line-up of assholes Rodriguez got to star in his movie.

    • Renee says:


      I am sorry but your comment made me laugh and laugh so hard that my chest hurt.

      And the rest of the commenters are on point…the crazy in the photos is too much…

    • Kim1 says:

      His only daughter will be 8 on Dec 10. He also has four sons.I just googled him.

  8. Elizabeth says:

    Paris Hilton? Really? Speaking of her I just saw a sneak peek if her new video. 40 seconds of my life completely wasted.

  9. Hautie says:

    I am telling you, the best fight scene for me, was Mel Gibson in “The Patriot”.

    Mel with that Tomahawk and buck knife… kicking ass… is forever burned into my memory.

    And if you have never seen “The Patriot”. See it for Heath Ledger. Looking all pretty.

    But stay to see Mel, killing those nasty red coats.

  10. LesBitches says:

    Yeah that girl looks seriously young….and Paris is almost wearing the same dress Mindy Kaling wore for the emmys

  11. gloaming says:

    Rodriquez’ girlfriend’s name is Marci Madison. She has an imdb page but her only three credits are his Movies. Can’t see her age anywhere. He looks so creepy with her.

    • Bitca says:

      But that is because RR has a creepy look in general, I think. The gf seems about the same age as Peaches Geldof was when dating Eli Roth. But did Rodriguez ever get a divorce?

  12. Mia4S says:

    Trejo wins forever for once being an exploding head on a tortoise (God I will miss Breaking Bad!). 😉

  13. MrsBPitt says:

    I know that Mel is a total tool and nutjob…but he was always a great actor and director…I think he is crazy (and of course, he is) to be in such crap as Machete Kills and Expendables 3…why, oh why, didn’t he just take his gazillions of dollars and retire quietly on some island…

  14. Aud says:

    Expendibles is my guilty pleasure. I can’t wait to see Mel in that. In those films he’ll be free to unleash his crazy.

  15. Arock says:

    If we could get trejo and gene Simmons out of there someone could drop a glass dome on the rest and that would be that.

  16. QQ says:

    I was gonna say Mel, as in Any carpet where that asshole is in HE gets to take the crazy cake ….then i saw Busey was there… :/

  17. Crack Fox says:

    I think Paris looks really nice. That’s a good color on her.

  18. Jess says:

    Please tell me that’s Robert’s daughter because otherwise that is gross! And why is Paris there? Isn’t she completely over? And I refuse to acknowledge the craziest one at all. He needs to just disappear.

  19. eliza says:

    Has Rodriguez gone the Doug Hutchinson route?

  20. Angie says:

    Umm that girl looks atleast 25-30..what’s the big deal ?

  21. Veeeeeery Veeerytas says:

    Arghhh! Now Mel is doing the tongue thing!
