Jodie Foster Continues To Defend Mel Gibson

| Filed under: Film FlickersJodie FosterMel Gibson

Wow! She must be a good friend to say that Mel Gibson's one of the most beloved actors!

We think that might have been true at one point, but certainly that isn't the case nowadays. It'll be quite inneresting to see how The Beaver does despite his real life shenanigans!

To us, it really does look like it could be a good movie. We always like it when Jodie Foster is behind the camera as well as in front of it.

Take a few minutes and watch the director herself continue to stick up for the man and not his actions (we'll be honest, they should be inseparable).

Will U be seeing the Beaver?

Check out the video… after the jump!

    Jodie's certainly a loyal friend - we should all be so lucky to have someone like that in our lives; having our back no matter what.

    No I will not watch and she is only saying these things so her movie is not a flop.

    That is how REAL friends act, not like you who is the most two-faced person out there. You are so mean to Britney and Rihanna, yet they put you in their videos
    I haven't seen you in any Lady GaGa videos. And it is INTERESTING,not inneresting, at least act like you have an education.

    What a weird pairing because Mel Gibson is obviously homophobic. I admire her loyalty to him, and you can just tell she's an amazing person for sticking by him. I still don't understand the double standard with women being gay versus men and how st8 men make a free pass for gay women? However, I also have female friends that freak out around lesbians, but love gay men - I guess it doesn't matter to me as long as you're cool :)

    According to SXSW, it was meh. I still cannot believe a group of people thought this plot was a good idea. I still cannot believe this movie is not a porno. Jodie and Mel are really great actors- so I'm sure it will be better than expected. But no, I will not see this poop.

    Foster has been friends with Gibson for nearly 20 years. She's known his ex, Oksana whatever, since back when Oksana was fleecing Timothy Dalton. Foster probably knows a lot more about the facts than all the media pundits.

    Why shouldn't he succeed? God knows everyone rewarded Charlie Sheen's crazy behavior with higher ratings and more publicity. Mel Gibson won't be the first person to have had personal domestic issues. Look at Chris Brown. He went off his rocker and did some damage after being asked a question about WHAT HE DID to Rihanna. The only difference between Chris Brown and Mel Gibson is age.

    Why defend a bigot, racist and probably a huge homophobe!!

    Mel Gibson is a racist, homophobic, misogynist, domestic abuser. He has demonstrated again and again through his actions and words that he is a complete scumbag. I won't be spending a dime to support any of his projects.



  10. 10

    sure he's a wonderful man!!! a man that wishes some races were extinct, and people from other religions should be killed, a man that hits women with babies in their arms… sure he's a wonderful man, in Jodie's world, where all the celebrities are seen for what they are: a bunch of soulless creatures who would do anything to promote their work and make more money. ethical and moral issues to the side, according to them…

    Re: bretticus21 – Could you please tell your "female friends who freak out when they are around lesbians" that lesbians do not want straight women and lesbians do not have magical powers to "convert" straight girls (nor would we want to)….So please tell them to chill out and open their minds next time they are "around lesbians"….Geez….Regarding Mel and Jodie, I think she is in denial due to their friendship…She cannot and does not want to believe her friend is a racist/homophobe.



  12. 12

    Gee, she didn't see to be this loyal to her ex Cydney Bernard.



  13. 13

    Mel's not worth defending, but is defended by Jodi and Whoopie, who are both presumed gay, but won't say. How interesting, sticking up for homophobic mel! Whoopie defends most men, because the "alleged allegations are alleged"! She defended Chris Brown! The woman obviously has problems, as does Jodi Foster. Twisted birds of a feather stick together!

    wow…. now that was a disturbing laugh she put out
    there at the end

    LOL



  15. 15

    homophobic means you ar scared of f@gs. I dont think Mel is scared of them.



  16. 16

    Re: tallguy10 – Wrong!! It isn't about Foster knowing the facts at all. She said in the video she is defending the man i.e. her friend. Not his actions. She's doing what a loyal, loving, supportive friend should do. Yeah, he's a drunk asshole who made some dumbass decisions. But she loves him anyway. It isn't about the secret truths the pundits don't know. It's about a friend sticking up for a friend.

    Now, Mel isn't my friend. So, he can kiss my ass and rot in hell for all I care. Fuck that ignorant, racists, homophobic, philandering, alcoholic, angry, abusive, bitter, sexist, crazy conspiracy believing, antisemitic bitch ass hypocrite. I hope his career forever decays in the shitter.

    I FOR ONE THINK THAT EVERYONE (YOU INCLUDED) SHOULD GET OFF HIS BACK ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HIS JOB AND HIS PERSONAL LIFE SHOULD BE SEPARATED AND I THINK HE DOES A GOOD JOB OF IT, BUT THE REST OF YOU ALL? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! YA GOTTA JUST KEEP THE OLD FIRES BURNING. SHAME ON YOU ALL. LET THE MAN BE, PLEASE.

    Re: 1finn – IF I'VE TOLD HIM ONCE, I'VE SAID IT A GAZILLION TIMES. IT IS NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT INNERESTING, BUT AS YOU AGREE INTERESTING!! IS HE DENSE?

    Re: Jai – People who achieve the professional heights that he has can have issues in their personal life. All of their personal development has been focused on the work, and the personal life is shoved aside and ignored. It usually comes back to bite people in the butt. He has to learn his lessons there just like everyone else, but his work has been progressively brilliant. I would still see one of his movies first if he had one out. I just wouldn't date him right now.



  21. 21

    SHe is entitled to her opinion without being put down for it. And she does say something about how she doesn't defend his actions but speaks about the man she has known for years. Sorry but I still think Oksana leaking those phone tapes (through someone else) didn't help his anger management issues.

    she must be a good friend to support mel right now….uh…dude…you are off your fucking rocker…….she has a multi million dollar big budge flick she directed…and is starring him…..do you not think she is going to desparately try and prop this destined for failure flick?

    she wants the flick to do well and make money…her respect for him or not is not in question……..fucknuts

    Re: @v@ – Would you excuse a woman who (1) slapped a man in the face, and admitted it, (2)threatened to put her spouse in a rose garden, (3) had a DUI and made anti-semitic remarks to a Jewish police officer, (4) made the ridiculous movie "The Passion of the Christ", considered by many to be anti-semitic ? Actors can't make their fortune from the adoration of the public, and behave swine in their personal lives!



  24. 24

    Re: sanfran1 – I agree in regards to the Mel and Jodie comment and will pass along the other message.



  25. 25

    Foster has always been a class act and it's good to see you post a positive post about her, Perez. I would think that she's only defending Mel because she directed him in her movie, but she defended him back in 2006 too during his first controversial incident. And Rob Lowe said she was the only one of his famous friends to have his back during a tough time. She's just a loyal friend. And I will be seeing the Beaver because I hear the script is amazing and I'm a fan of Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence. It should be interesting.

    "Look, it’s terrible, I know, but weakness really, really bugs me, to the point that if there is a wounded bird on the sidewalk, I look at it and I go: I think I’ll just kick it." — Jodie Foster

    After I read that I felt disgusted by her and nothing will induce me to watch anything she is part of.



  27. 27

    Why would anyone watch a Jodie Foster film about Mel Gibson playing with his Beaver? Because no one wants to watch Jodie Foster play with HER Beaver.



  28. 28

    "The Beaver" sounds ridiculous and stupid. And, of course, Jodie is "defending" Mel because he's unfortunately in her movie and she wants to make money. Duh.



  29. 29

    Of course Mel knows she's a lesbian. He's not a bad guy at all.
    If Charlie Sheen gets a break, why can't Mel Gibson?
    I mean the guy said some stupid things as a drunking fool.
    He has given more money to charity than almost anyone alive.
    Too bad this country has millions of morons…



  30. 30

    mel apparently is a real life assshole, jodie is his friend so i can respect that. she probably also wants her movie to do well so defending him may go beyond just friendship.
    mel has made some very good movies (braveheart, mad max) but if you don't like it, dont go.

    Re: kappuhcheenoh – It's not my place to 'excuse' Mel Gibson.
    That's between Mel, his button pushing tape releasing baby mommy gold digger, the group that tried to hogtie and dictate his vision of the Passion of the Christ through various questionable and frustrating but characteristic means, and his conscience. I have always liked and admired his movies. A lot.



  32. 32

    jodie is a amazing woman and actress mel isnt all bad of course until he met the russian cnt he still had alot of people love him mel is a amazing actor and a good guy who did some bad stuff i will of course watch the movie



  33. 33

    Mel Gibson is a piece of shit, and now I'm not so sure about seeing Jodie's movies…I think it's wrongheaded to condone Mel's actions and ideas publicly.



  34. 34

    A friend is someone who will stand beside another in their time of need. Clearly Jodie is a friend. And Mel must have done something right in his past to earn such a friendship.



  35. 35

    Well it's Mel gibson, he has some classic movies under his belt and his pratically a movie living legend. So he's gets hammered and said some unflattering things, who hasn't? Hypocrites! The domestic abuse deal isn't so good, but again this happens quite a bit in America and there's something not right with this woman.

    he'll get what's coming to him, but the over the top hatred for Mel is ridiculous.



  36. 36

    Re: @v@ – OK. I totally get you. But Oksana was not charged with anything! All of the "extortion" rumors evaporated. And it doesn't matter to me what "kind" of woman she is, he slapped her in the face, and that's all I need to hear to be completely done with Mel Gibson! But continue to enjoy his movies, after all, he didn't slap you.

    Re: kappuhcheenoh – I respect your feeling that way. I'm just not one to pile on. No one knows what really goes on behind closed doors. They ended up like two cats in a bag, and I've seen that happen before with otherwise fairly reasonable people. He does exhibit a puffed ego, but those are the egos gut through and make big vista historical blockbusters. I support excellence in art and don't necessarily think a train wreck personal life is anybody else's beeswax. Life can be hard enough, you know?



  38. 38

    You better know I am going to see it. And I am going to take my friends to see it and any movie I go to see, I will tell them I am going to see the Beaver, so that the money goes to Mel.

    All these Megaphones are hilarious. Mel Gibson is the best man in Hollywood. These Semites have hated him every since he did the Passion of the Christ.

    Ask yourself how many other movies depict Semites as villains? None, that's right, not one. They hate Mel's guts and that is OK by me. They need to worry about how many people are going to blame them when their dollar won't buy anything. They have bigger problems than Mel Gibson.
