Put aside 20 to 25 minutes, and have a good read of this:-

And then read the full letter:-

It's one of the most amazing things I've ever read. Of course, Joe Eszterhas, who is a massive hack, has published this as little more than a publicity stunt on his part, but that does not spoil the sheer amazingness of it all. It's awesome.

 

I think that when The Beaver came out some people thought he was sorting himself out. That will be a no, then.

I hope that iPod recording shows up at some point.

 

Eszterhas is pretty crazy himself (and I love the pretense of "you did this, you said this," like there was no intention of going public), but I find myself believing every word. The tapes of Mel screaming at his wife showed that he's genuinely completely insane, and everything in the letter is fully believable once you've heard those previous outbursts. Best parts of that letter: Mel Gibson literally screaming at the heavens for making him look so old, and telling a fifteen-year-old boy "I'd like to fuck my ex-wife up the arse while stabbing her to death."

 

If people aren't aware of this, Mel's dad, Hutton Gibson, is a terrifically insane Catholic racist and Holocaust denier, and once you read up on him, the stuff about Mel and this seemingly sudden Jew-hate makes a lot more sense.

 

Gibson is also a proponent of various conspiracy theories. In a 2003 interview he questioned how the Nazis could have disposed of six million bodies during the Holocaust and claimed that the September 11, 2001 attacks were perpetrated by remote control. He has also been quoted as saying the Second Vatican Council was "a Masonic plot backed by the Jews".

I'd love to think that you could, somehow suddenly become a massive anti-semite. Like when someone gets kicked in the head by a donkey & suddenly speaks in Jamaican patois or some shit 'I just remember waking up & hating Jews'.

Strangely enough I was reading an interview with Ray Winston this morning who said what a fantastic guy he is.

 

The guy clearly has racist issues that he got from his father and on top of that he clearly has problems with alcohol. The two together don't really mix which is probably why for years he's been normal and now all of a sudden he's a mess.
