That lovely Mel Gibson

A lot of people have wondered if Mel Gibson’s motivation for Passion of the Christ, was to demonise Jews. For those not sure, a story from Winona Ryder about Mel Gibson:

A Mel Gibson anecdote: “I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk. I was with my friend, who’s gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”

I blame his father.
