Mel Gibson: Tiger Woods is being used as a diversion from war


Mel Gibson gave an extensive interview to The Daily Mail over the weekend to promote his new film Edge of Darkness, which is a remake of a British film/miniseries. In addition to talking about the film (talking on and on, it’s pretty boring), Mel hit all the hot spots, talking about his divorce, his relationship with Oksana Grigorieva, the ongoing Tiger Woods drama, and even his “sins” as a man. I hate to say it, but Mel does not come across as a stupid man. True, he sounds a little crazy at times, but he’s not dumb, to give him credit. The full piece is here, and these are some of the highlights:

Mel on his “sins”: “ Nobody is without sin. You have to try to make amends if you can. You have to shut up and move on and not whine about it. And you have to deal with it like a man. And that’s. Whatever fallout comes from it, be it fair or unfair, you’ve just got to accept your own culpability. The minute you start whining, it’s ridiculous.”

On Tiger Woods: “I feel sorry for Tiger Woods. Why are we talking about this when we’re sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan? You’ve got this history-changing event going on and we’re talking about Tiger’s private life and golf injuries. He’s being used as a diversion and it just drives me crazy. You come out savaged. I just think, ‘Who cares?’”

On his alcoholism: “It’s been three-and-a-half years now (without alcohol). It’s cool. But I put some time together before that – one time it was eight years, one time it was five years. I have to be vigilant about these things or it will creep back in.”

On his divorce and his relationship with Oksana: “When all’s said and done I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage. I’m to blame, if you’re inclined to judge.”

On his career as an actor, director, producer and film distributor: “You have to be prepared to gamble on your own ability. I’ve played the game inside the club – there’s been plenty of popcorn-eating, crowd-pleaser flicks. But nobody knows what will be commercially successful. I learned that you just take your best guess. Of course, generally speaking, the guess is financially motivated, because film-making is a business. But sometimes the most left-field, outrageous thing can work. I do know that if you ever lose touch with who you’re telling the story to, then you’re in trouble. If you can entertain, if you can educate and if you can lift the audience to a higher plane, and do all three in the same project, then that really is great.”

On “the culture of death”: “We’re living in a culture of death. The central theme of Apocalypto was how family is threatened. What does human sacrifice mean? Is human sacrifice the ancient Mayans cutting heads off in a bid to worship their gods, or is it sending lots of young people to war under the pretence that the enemy has weapons of mass destruction? I’m not denigrating the military – these are brave boys and girls. It’s the leaders. Our leaders should go out there themselves and slug it out. Just the two of them, like they used to do in the Dark Ages. Dark? That was civilised.”

Does Mel consider himself right-wing or conservative? “It’s not true. Political leaders ought to go back and read work like Hilaire Belloc (the 20th-century conservative Catholic writer and Liberal MP). He used to write about distributism (the economic philosophy that advocates spreading ownership of the means of production as widely as possible). That suits me more. It’s not communism; it’s redistribution. Of course, it would require that everyone is kind – which is never going to happen. That’s utopian. But if you study history you discover that it constantly regurgitates itself. You can only do your little bit, try to make some difference somewhere.”

On politics in general: “That’s a brutal world to get into. It’s like jumping into the lawnmower blades.”

On faith: “Sometimes just sheer faith is all that carries you through. You have to have that to survive. Many people profess not to have faith, but I think we all do, of sorts. We all have a desperate desire to be happy. Look around you. This world and what it has to offer is not good enough. There’s got to be a place, somewhere, where happiness is achievable. So faith that things will eventually be OK is what keeps us all going. And if that place doesn’t exist… I’ll go and check out now. Hand me the noose. I just think there’s a greater purpose. I am selfish and egotistical. When you can forget your own ego and help others, that’s when you find yourself.”

[From The Daily Mail]

See? He doesn’t come across as “Sugart-ts Mel”. Was it just the alcohol? Maybe. It could very well be that when Mel is sober, he’s a fascinating, intelligent, passionate, quirky man worthy of admiration. But here’s the thing – I’m not sure if I buy that Mel is 3 years sober. I think it’s very likely that he’s still drinking and carousing and womanizing, and that he explains it all away with “Nobody is without sin, so stop whining about it.” While I think Mel intellectually takes responsibility for his life, for his faults, for his mistakes, I wonder if he’s “learned his lesson” so to speak.

    I really like him, always have. He’s made dumb mistakes but admits to them, and even though he’s a little crazy, he seems like he’s trying, which is all I can ask. No matter what, he’s still MILES above the rest of Hollywood…and his new movie looks kick ASS (and I never see movies). So you go Mel!

  2. Sumodo says:

    No no no. JUST WAIT FOR IT AND MEL EVENTUALLY LOSES IT. It’s not Mel’s baggage that makes him disgusting, it the ideologies he shares with his father. Mel didn’t switch into that gear during this interview. That’s when it gets ugly. His handlers are short-leashing him.

  3. bros says:

    I have to say that I agree the media focuses on frivolous stupid things that have no bearing on our lives, civic, political, or otherwise, because its cheaper and far easier and it comes at the expense of places like CNN or Fox having to do real journalism.

  4. Green is Good says:

    Anybody else creeped out by that freaky puppet?

  5. LolaBella says:

    Although it’s hard to take a grown man seriously when he has his hand stuffed up the butt of a fake beaver…

    …I’m glad to see that he was man enough to admit that he fucked up his marriage. Oh and YES, Mel we’re inclined to judge.

  6. Jayshawn says:

    Ummm, Mel, the reason people are interested in the Tiger Woods scandal is because it’s entertaining, whereas the war in Afghanistan is just depressing. Sometimes you need a break from all the hurt in the World, which is why anyone cares about Mel Gibson (or any entertainer), and the reason we have weekends. I mean, why spend time with your family when you could be relentlessly working to support the economy during a downturn…

  7. Firestarter says:

    Oh Mel!

    I do not think Tiger is used for a diversion. I think the sad fact is, people for the most part, are more interested in gossip than war.

  8. Phowie says:

    @LolaBella: I assume by having his hand stuck up the butt of a fake beaver you’re referring to the puppet and not Oksana, correct?
    And let me just get my head around Mel’s thoughts on faith; ‘this world and what is has to offer is not good enough and if a place where happiness is achievable doesn’t exist then he wants to check out now, just hand him a noose.’ Aside from the fact that suicide is high up on the list of Catholic sins, in addition to being one of the most selfish and egotistical acts a person can commit, he has basically just endorsed anyone’s decision to opt out of life. Mel, what’s your stance on abortion? What a hypocrite.

  9. Pont Neuf says:

    I love Mel Gibson. He is the typical Catholic hypocrite who says “oh yes, I may be at fault, but I go to Mass three times a week and I confess my sins each time! Do YOU do all this? No? You see? I’m still better than everybody else, and should be able to get away with blue murder!”.

    Still, what can be expected from the son of a radical fascist and Holocaust denialist?

    Also, his speech sounds alarmingly like something that a publicist and a team of consultants would have prepared for him. I’ve read other interviews that weren’t prepared, and he isn’t nearly as articulate nor has this tendency to drop the names of random authors to give greater authority to what he’s saying.

    Let’s be honest, this guy is an all around execrable human being and the only thing that has carried him trough is that he was very handsome when he was young.

    Also, comparing the Tiger Woods debacle with the tragedies of the war… Classy. Because EVERYONE has stopped being interested in the war just because of Mr Hatchet Teeth and his infidelities. Oh Mel, shut up!

  10. gg says:

    As in his life and Tiger Woods’ life, THE BEAVER MADE ME DO IT!!

  11. lucy2 says:

    He seems to be intelligent and may even been fascinating, but I wouldn’t say admirable.
    He does at least admit to his faults and the mess of his marriage, more than most would do. But the whole thing sounds very carefully worded, like he knows what he SHOULD say. Whether he means it or not, I don’t know. I kind of feel like his true colors have come out in recent years, and I think he has a lot of issues and really unfortunate ways of thinking.

  12. crash2GO2 says:

    Yes, very very intelligent. And very very crazy. But somewhere in there is a spark of truth. Not only in what he speaks, in how he does exactly what he talks about in this interview. Carries on as best he can, knowing how fallible he is. He has no delusions of grandeur, unlike many powerful men in Hollywood.

  13. snowball says:

    Ditto, crash2GO2.

    @Pont Neuf – what is a “typical Catholic hypocrite?” A slam against things typical, hypocritical or Catholic? Or all three?

    I prefer to think Mel is an example of …Mel.

  14. oxa says:

    Mel Gibson is certifiable and there is a bed at Cedars Sinai waiting fot him.

  15. canadianchick says:

    @lolabella and @phowie, thanks for the chuckles-I need it to get through Monday.

  16. susieqinBA says:

    I do believe he has been carefully “worded” in this interview. I do not believe he has been without a drink in 3 1/2 years, so he is lying, when this summer he was reported to going back to drinking and just last month there was a tweet on twitter from a woman who said he was outside her building literally going crazy, drunk, chain smoking, and she was afraid to go back out there. Mel speaks “words” that give you the impression of one thing but his heart is not in it. His faith is in vain because his faith is for “show” and not taken to heart. Mel has no convictions of the heart so there “his faith” is not a reality to him. If your “faith” is true to you then you take it to heart and when taken to heart it changes things. It’s not “saying the right words: I’m sorry, father forgive me for I have sinned (let’s get this over with so I can go back and sin some more)”. Some people detect this and this is why he gets the response he gets from people. No, I’m not “judging” the man, you are a fool for believing things he says and his life is not what he portrays it to be. The man has a mental disorder and he doesn’t comprehend reality, (he needs to get delivered from his PR people). He can’t even address his relationship with Oksana (which I don’t think it is there anymore) or this baby “that gave him a new life”. He can’t be truthful or honest or sincere. He did say that he was to blame for his divorce like that was a big improvement for him! He got caught “with his pants down” so of course he had to say he was the blame, he is still speaking from his head and not from his heart. Mel Gibson is dying, his “faith” has come up before God.

  17. california angel says:

    Well it is being used as a diversion.

    Let’s see, Obama; 1)Uses actions of one or two extremists and the american people’s fear to justify sending more troops to war and had been sending troops without any justification at all 2) Uses same situations to slowly take away more of our rights (i.e. full body scans and expanding big brother watch lists)
    3) Takes credit for something he didn’t do (i.e. Nobel Peace Prize)

    And he’s different from Bush how?

  18. Mairead says:

    Any chance of him “redistributing” some of his cash towards the rebuilding of St. Mel’s Cathedral in his mother’s home town? Probably not.

  19. snapdragon says:

    i saw a preview for mel’s upcoming movie, and all i can say is father time has not been kind to mr. gibson. not at all.

  20. Just a Poster says:

    GG! You naughty poster you! LOL

    I like Mel, I always have. I also think he makes great movies.

  21. Pam says:

    But people are talking about Afghanistan.

    Also, Mel Gibson’s fame depends upon the same level of attention that is afforded Tiger Woods in the same celebrity industry.

    Further, he is not smart simply because he lists the name of someone who wrote a book.

  22. Solveig says:

    I suppose that that beaver is giving him a cue, because Mel sounds honest and quiet intelligent in this interview.

    ps: I had a crush on him when I was a little girl.

  23. Shannon says:

    I think Mel is just jealous that he got saddled with his mistress for life.

  24. GatsbyGal says:

    Pont Neuf took the words right outta my mouth.

  25. annie says:

    typical Catholic Hypocrit? As opposed to a typical lutheran hypocrit. a typical buddist hypocrit, a typical muslim hypocrit? Mel is responsible for Mel. Got it? No matter how many times a person goes to confession, if there’s no real intention to avoid said sins, it’s not sincere, so it’s not any good. And God, and only God knows when it’s sincere or not.

  27. coucou says:

    Way to go Jayshawn post number 6, dead clever, I liike…

  28. filthycute says:

    I like Mel. He’s a thoughtful and intelligent man who’s made some public mistakes. That’s okay.


  29. Uzi says:

    To my knowledge no one has ever called Mel dumb or stupid. Crazy, crass, hypocritical, misogynist, homophobic, anti-Semitic…yes; dumb or stupid…no. I’ve followed his career since the very beginning (he was for many years my favorite actor) and he always struck me as, like Kaiser says, “a fascinating, intelligent, passionate, quirky man…” Unfortunately I feel that as he’s aged the quirks have overtaken the smarts.

    I can’t decide whether or not I believe he’s sober. He’s admitted to suffering from depression and having “excessive” tendencies, and this whole Oksana obsession could simply be the substitution of other addictions (sex, reckless and irresponsible behavior) for alcohol.

    I’m not surprised about the Tiger Woods comments, as these two guys are two sides of the same coin, having used false “family man” images to further their careers. I’m also not surprised that Mel didn’t discuss his relationship with Oksana. He never liked discussing his relationship with Robyn, and that was a genuine, loving, longterm partnership.

    I read the entire article, and one quote caught my eye: “…I’m looking at my daughter and sons to step into that place where I’ve been, as responsible adults.” “Daughter” is singular, when technically he has two. Was this a Jude Law-like slip of the tongue in that he doesn’t consider the illegitimate one equal to his other kids? Or was it because his seven kids by Robyn are older (even though the youngest is only ten) and he views the baby in a different context? Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but I think that everything Mel says and does from now on is going to be put under the microscope by the media and a lot of people.

  30. Sincerity says:

    Mel Gibson is entitled to his opinions and is trying to improve his public persona that has taken a considerable beating due to his “lack of discipline” and “sound judgment” within the last decade. Unfortunately, “the arm chair intellectual” approach may not be the best.

    However, if he really wants to improve his image, he should review George Clooney and Brad Pitts records on social activism. Even Tiger Woods has been very active in this arena. Writing a check is simple but being an “active participant” carries considerably more weight. It’s quite obvious that he still holds his wife, Robyn in high regard and discussing his personal life in any great detail only embarrasses her and their children. If they are going to remain on friendly terms, there are just some things that’s better left unsaid.

    Regarding Afghanistan, in order to combat the threats posed by the Taliban, America has to stay involved because no one else is willing to it. In too many instances, religion has been used as the “opiate of the people” to justify senseless aggression against others. I’m quite sure the Obama Administration is privy to considerably more international intelligence than Mel Gibson.

    He’s only attempting to put “a better foot forward”; however, what’s really in his heart is only between him and his GOD. The GOD I know “plays for keeps” and he can’t be fooled. Only time will tell.

  31. OLYMPE says:

    Uzy, I saw that too earlier yesterday, and for me its a clear sign that lucia is not his child, as he mention his grandc hildrens too so it cant be about adults only.
    It just tell that he is not the father, wether its accidentaly fall off his mouth, or actually done on purpose to test the water
    He has received the prove of it with the DNA test, performed on the baby since it was born.
    He knew so since the 9th of november 2009, date the pictures of him and Edward were talen, who are visible above, and you can see that he is totaly heartbroken.
    He look even worse on november 19th, the day he first came back from New York since the baby was born, and the day he confronted oksana with the fact that he wasnt the father.
    You could see on his face that he had cried, and rumor want that they also had a fight inside that restaurant.

    He is not the father and is trying to cope with that news and the consequences of all what that stunt that oksana played on him had for his life, his carrer, his family and his marriage.
    Not because he wanted that child, but becasue of what it had costed him and his family and his life to go through this, with the media stunt around it.
    I dont think that Robyn want back into that marriage even knowing that oksa had not a child with her husband Mel Gibson, but with another man.
    The article seems very dyster and sad. Mel has matured a lot through this experience.

    Oksana is also forbidden to talk about the child in relation with Mel Gibson. She cant mention him as being the father in any interview, or he will file a lawsuite against her.
    Look at all whats available since the 19th of november, she zipped it up on that subject even she try to induce it still.. But technicaly, she dont say it.

    Right now Mel has to say officialy that he is not the father of Lucia, and is no longer with oksana, in a more direct way, there is no way around this. And the soonest will be best.
    He cant wait ad eternam, he already waited 2 months now, before telling it to the public.

    Susie, you sound a bit frantic.
    The tweet about “Mel Gibson is outside my building screaming and chain smoking” was a joke. Maybe you should have look for the state and location..
    I saw that tweet and it had me laugh. If Mel Gibson had been making a scandal outside a public building it will have been all over the news with pictures the same evening or the morning after. Use your brain.

  32. Ruffian9 says:

    Pont Neuf: Well said. Hate this drunk misogynistic asshole. STFU Mel. Also, retire already.

  33. CathyT says:

    I don’t know if I believe that he’s been completely sober for 3 years, but it was the journalist who added “without alcohol,” not Mel. Maybe Mel meant that it’s been three and a half years since he’s had an extended lost weekend, even if he has had a few ~slips~.

  34. loldongs says:

    Mel is crazy, but this is true.

    It’s not just the war, it’s the economy, it’s to distract from the general shithole-status that the United States has degenerated to.

  35. susieqinBA says:

    I read the whole interview, too. Don’t be fooled by how he sounds and what he says, Mel steps into a “role” to play and he is “entertaining” people. He has been swallowed up by acting and the entertainment business, he is not a real man and he cannot speak as a real man – he’s a “robot, a droid”. Mel doesn’t know who or what he is because his life has been swallowed up by “performing” for people and I think he is a VERY confused man; I don’t think he knows what is real anymore. He used the same words he used on the Jay Leno show “I’ve done a good hatchet job on my marriage”; he has no convictions about the damage he has done in his marriage. His movies and his acting has feed bad things into people because of what comes out of him, I don’t think he is “great” neither has he been “successful” – look at the price you have paid Mel. C’mon do you want to spend the rest of your life like this? You’re dying, Mel, you are being killed in battle!

  36. susieqinBA says:

    OLYMPE (alias TRUTH, Sweetvictory1, Sweetnut) if Mel isn’t the father of the baby then it needs to be publicly announced it would probably be in his best interest. Oksana still mentioned Mel as the father AFTER Nov. 19 in her December interview that the baby “sings” and at the restaurant he didn’t looked like he was crying (why would he have taken her out to dinner if he wanted to confront her with the DNA result? You confront at home not in a public place especially with his situation!), I saw the state and location on the tweet and it did not read “he was screaming and chain smoking” it said, “Mel Gibson is outside my building drunk, chain smoking, and literally going crazy! TMZ where are you?” it really happened his handlers took him away probably before someone called the police. You are the one who kept saying that Oksana was not pregnant (did Mel tell you that too?) and now it’s funny that since someone said that they wouldn’t believe about Mel not being the father until they saw it in the tabloids that now you are trying to make excuses about that! You are not helping Mel at all! You must be part of his PR people who are destroying his life!

  37. OLYMPE says:

    Mel Gibson did not beleive she could be pregnant because he couldnt see how she could have get pregnant of him at that time. Later on, when he knew she was pregnant, he said that it could not be his child, which the due date proved, as well as the DNA test.
    No, oksana never said that Mel was the father after the 19th of december. you are wrong.
    And, yes he had been crying.

    They do not live together and he do not come to her home, nor invite her in his, so he told her in the car and discsussed it at the restaurant.

    What you do and dont do has little bearing on what Mel Gibson does and how he chose to live his life!

    Whats in his best interest or not is none of your business, so why dont you return to your little clairvoyance bs and let the man be, huh?
    I think you are having hallucinations thats all.
    Maybe you spend too much time your head in the wrong kind of crazy books.

    In the interview about the baby singing, she mentioned Mel by quoting what he had told her a year ago, in jan 2009, while making the video, and it was only about herself and how to handle her career, strickly professional, nothing to do with the baby, nor him being the father.
    But it was put in such a way to induce readers to automaticaly make a correlation between the baby talk and the name of Mel Gibson without having to say it. Probably because she wanted to, but also because the journalist didn’t had a clue.

    About the tweet, of course its not true and you are crazy to believe it. But that fits your overall caracter.
    What do you do for a living? Chass people around and make “predictions” on them?

    The state and location is not what the tweet said dude.
    Its in what part of the world it was!
    The tweet was a joke after several tweets of that kind between the 2 same persons, about different known people.

    You just see what you want to see and you hallucinate a lot, thats the problem. Your problem. Not Mel Gibson’s problem.
    What I do and dont do is none of your business.
    I dont think that Mel Gibson is coming outside someone’s building, ya know, and maybe you should focus on founding a job instead to write crazyness about some celebrity’s faith in such a distorded way.
    I have seen your posts for a long while and they have became worse and worse, and showing more and more signs of mental disorder.
    You dont think that you are a tad toooo obsessive, dont you?
    you told on several places that you hated Mel Gibson, so why are you talking of whats best for him, and who is not helping him, when you dont care about him?
    And why have you gone from a state of adoration for the man, to a state of hatress and total confusion?
    Maybe you should take a valium and cool down a bit.
    The beauty being Mel Gibson then you must be the ugly beast.
    You have a tendedncy to take your words for the universal truth and act like what you said was the truth. But it isnt. You are just living in your flat, in your building, having a hard time coping with reality, and creating an illusion to compensate.
    All that is fine, as long as you dont extend it as if being real and as if you had the right to mix up in people’s life.
    Fine if thats what keeps you going.
    But let Mel Gibson be. He has nothing to do with you, so why are you so upset and obsessed with him and with me??
    You are like a parasite coming inside people’s life and trying to live on it, because you have no life of your own

    You are the one living in a movie, and imagining things, like that you have a duty to tell Mel what to do!
    and imagine completely delirious things. Dreaming you are his beauty..
    saying that he never had succes, and that he is a bad actor, and that he was never handsomme, and all kind of things that only show that you are jealous of the guy, and wish you could be him. Only you pushed your projection a bit too far, giving him the mental problem that you have, and show all signs of.
    You are the one who is ubnable to distunguish between your dream and reality, not him.
    I found incredible that you can beleive what you say, but hé there is all sorts of people on the internet.

    You sounds bitter and hatefull agaisnt that guy, why is that?
    And at the same time you want to know more about him, and pretend like you want to help him and are some kind of good person, while all you say is very weird, negativ, blaming, angry, and unreal.

    What is it that you want exactly?

  38. OLYMPE says:

    It is certainly best for him to tell publicly that he is not the father and he will do so, but he has to cope with it and other things first.

    You are talking about the man as if you actualy knew him when you dont know him at all. You are imagining all those things, and now also talking of him dying all the time!
    I found it discusting.
    You dont say to someone, nor about someone, that the person is dying when he is not!
    You sounds like some kind of wich trying to blame the guy for all your problems, and to put a spell on him.
    Thats simply crazy.

    As for him using the “I did a good hatchet job on my marriage” at the Jay Leno show, its me who posted it on several websites yesterday, I can see that you are follwoing me everywhere..
    You are not stalking me, are you?

    The article contain several extract from previous interviews, who had nothing to do with that one, and who do not mean that Mel Gibson repeated those things during that interview.
    It is simply the “journalist” that try to decorate his interview with extra fizz by adding stuff they never talk about.
    They often do that at the Daily Mail.
    Like in early august they posted a pic of mel with oksa, taken in a club in LA, together with a pic of Mel playing poker in Vegas, and doing like if the pics had been taken at the same place, with the headline “Mel Gibson gambling in Las Vega with oksana “.. when Mel was in Vegas in july, all alone except for his kid, and the night club pic had been taken in LA after he had came back, on july 29th..
    Its not because its in a paper that its true. Journalists add lots of stuff around to fill the article, specialy when they have nothing.
    The passage about the motorbike is also taken from a previous interview and not this one, the goes for how he builded Icon and why, and the same as for what he said about his marriage. So all in all there isnt much in that interview that is new nor genuatly from that interview, except the talk about sending troops in Afghanistan and Edge of Darkness, and maybe about his state of mind.
    The journalist probably was alowed to make an interview about Edge of Darkness, and extended it a tad.

  39. susieqinBA says:

    The demons are really stirred up in you, girl! You have no idea what I am saying when I say “he is dying”. You are more obsessed with the man than I am. Shut up satan in the name of Jesus!

  40. Blitz says:

    I don’t see astounding intelligence in his answers. In fact I’m in the camp that thinks they’re ‘typical public relations answers’. Combined with arrogance and complete denial, as if Tiger Woods discussions mean that people don’t care about global issues, or are not actively involved politically. Or that all “flawed” people do the same things, and feel the same way he does (which is not true). Which means being a womanizer and bigoted rat are sort of ok. STFU Mel!

    Basically what Sumodo and Pont Neuf said.

  41. crash2GO2 says:

    I see the lunatics have taken over the asylum.

  42. Uzi says:

    Well said Blitz! I just re-read the post and most of the comments (the sane ones!) and thought yes, this IS all a diversion. But Mel didn’t mind wasting valuable media space that could have been devoted to Afghanistan when he paid his PR people to promote the fake, Mel-funded “music career” of his sleazy, fame whore mistress, did he? At least Tiger Woods, possibly the greatest golfer in the history of the game, is a legitimate celebrity!

  43. Debbie says:
