Mel Gibson: "The Most Loved Man In The Film Business???"

| Filed under: Jodie FosterMel Gibson

jodie foster defends mel gibson most loved man in film business

Unless we time warped to 1984, this statement is highly incorrect and offensive to the likes of George Clooney and Brad Pitt .

In a recent interview, Jodie Foster took up the reins of the Save Mel Gibson campagin and told reporters that she thought her pal was still revered in Tinsel Town. She went onto to say that Mel will be able to get through this "rough time" in his life and come out the other side a stronger man and actor. She told sources:

"He is incredibly loved by everyone that's ever come into contact with him or works with him. He is truly the most loved man in the film business, so, hopefully that stands for something."

Unfortunately, it doesn't, because it's just not so.

Will he be able to make a comeback? Sure, everyone loves to see an unredeemable soul be redeemed, but never will he be adored by the biz the way you're describing. He was never really loved that much to begin with!

But way to stand by your man, girl!

    actually, if you knew many of the powerful people in the industry intimately they would all say the same thing. you are an outsider who will never be let in because of the hate you spew daily.

    Gibson is well liked by pretty much all the insiders. He makes butt loads of money per film for lots of people. he is a very dynamic and intelligent man, and everyone has their issues… he is not unique to that. he just lives on a grander, more public scale than most.

    She's wrong Perez you're awesome and I love your new approach!

    However, if we are talking about the most loved men in film, I think Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington would have been much better examples! Brad Pitt is in a league with the all too trashy Jesse James and Tiger Woods

    It says a lot about Jodie Foster, and not in a good way either. Same with Whoopi Goldberg; all respect lost for those who back this anti-Semite.

    Hilton would drop to his knee's for Mel if he were to make a 'Video for Gay Youth'

    You can love someone who is VERY flawed. Jodie obviously feels he is worthwhile and I think, it is a very good way to look at the situation. Gibson might just be a person who has said really HORRIBLE things but is a good person underneath it all. Remember, we dont KNOW him. She has looked into his eyes, has spoken to him when it was at his best and has trusted him. It would make a huge difference in the way you perceive him.

    Re: Me Myself and I
    Wow , someone posts someting intelligent on this site? Thank you :)

    Everyone has their own issues and demons , I'm guessing you've never spent time with Mel have you Perez? You just assume he is a bad person based on hearsay and rumors.

    He may have some beliefs that you don't agree with but hating and judging him makes you look to be a bad guy yourself.

    from other things I've read people still really support him. I'm not sure why. But other actors just love him.

    Poor Mel made only 2 mistakes. He made a wonderful movie about Jesus Christ. This made Jews very angry. Then Mel was mean to a Russian whore-I don't know why anybody cares about that

    Mel may have his problems but I love him and his movies!! I will always be a fan :)

    I am SO disappointed as I was a LONG time HUGE Jodie Foster fan. I simply can't stomach her now. This man is poison, caustic, nasty and full of hate. One of the most HYPOCRITICAL people I can think of. Spewing his hate and then hiding behind some twisted view of catholicism. The very idea that you can be married for decades, have children, and then believe that that can be ANNULLED, is only one of many SICK ways this man tries to use everything to his benefit.

    julia roberts despised him when they were filming conspiracy theory. He was constantly playing jokes on her and could not seem to get the message that she wasn't in to it.
    .
    I think the problem with mel is that he doesn't have a filter. I don't believe for one second that he physically hurt the GF - he may have yelled at her and got in her face and she fell or something, but I don't believe for one second that he hit her. There is NO evidence of it at all. People don't just start abusing - it's a life long thing - and there's NO prior evidence of him being physically abusive to anyone.

    I find it truly disturbing that anyone who has heard the recordings of this man ripping apart and threatening his significant other would support or defend him in any way other than urging him to seek professional help.
    .
    I will not ever give him approbation in any way, which in my case means, I will never ever pay to see a film this man has any association with.

    Speaking as someone who also consistently has the stuff coming out of his mouth be completely misinterpreted, I feel for Mel. He's in a mess that is not of his making. Oksana is a whore and she is basically soiling the man's good name. No matter what happens, I'm a fan of his. I don't trust Oksana and I especially don't care what some loser like Perez has to say about either one of them.

    Jodie you should be ashamed of yourself. this guy is so anti gay. Off the Rails anti gay, and youre chummy with him.

    you must be stuck in some hollywood bubble where you dont understand reality.

    thanks a lot uncle tom

    I will NEVER watch a movie that Mel is in again. His attitude about paying child support to his daughter is as horrible as his deadly mouth. He is fighting against paying an amount which is pocket change to Mel. He is hateful!!! His taped rages seem to have been ignored by the law and the world.



  18. 18

    I guess she's gotten past his anti-gay remarks. That's sad.



  19. 19

    Both incredibly talented. Both "appear to be" full of crap when it comes to relationships.



  20. 20

    I have lost respect for Foster. The wise practice of never saying anything bad about your costars will be usurped by her choice to attach herself to a sinking ship.



  21. 21

    Unfortunately, it doesn't, because it's just not so. - PURFECT!



  22. 22

    preposterous. I have always admired Jodie Foster but she's talking like a lunatic. I know people who've worked with Gibson and said he was a total ass. Do you think blacks and Jews find him lovable? What about battered women? Apart from all that, yes, there is Jeff Bridges…..there are many actors universally adored and respected by peers and gaffers. Kevin Bacon gets raves. Anthony Hopkins. even Clint Eastwood (whose politics I abhor). Chris Cooper. Supposedly everyone loved John Ritter. Most loved man in film business? Jodie, you have gone around the bend.



  23. 23

    Bullshit Perez. In the film industry, love = money. His movies have made billions of dollars. The industry loves him for that and could give two shits if he spews hatred at a hot, young, gold digging Russian girl.



  24. 24

    Re: widownixon – Funny how u have a pic of Lafayette…..Mel hates gays and everyone knows this, even his friends.



  25. 25

    Mel needs to clean up his image — a LOT. I really don't think that he is as universally loved as Ms. Foster likes to make out.
