Nobody Gives A Dam About Mel Gibson's Beaver

the beaver does poorly at box office

Better luck next time, Mel!

Last we heard about Mel Gibson's The Beaver, director Jodie Foster was STILL trying to convince us to love Mel and embrace the movie.

We weren't really feeling it, and apparently nobody else was feeling it either because thus far, The Beaver has only made $104,000 after three days of release in 22 theaters! Ouch!

Looks like Jodie isn't letting the film's lack of Box Office get to her though, because when she spoke at a recent Q&A screening of the film, she had the following to say:

"I don’t care if the movie doesn’t make any money."

Nice to hear that she's staying strong despite having the odds heavily against her with this one.

…Wonder how Mel's feeling about it…

What do U think about The Beaver's weak box office numbers? Do U think it deserves more love? Even less?

Jodi Foster Still Wants Us To Love Mel Gibson

And we're like, "eh."

Jodi Foster and Mel Gibson's new movie, The Beaver is out in theaters this Friday, so naturally, the two are doing a lot of press to promote the film. And by the two of them, we mean Jodi is doing all the promoting while Mel deals with his personal life that has been in utter shambles for the better part of the last two years.

Still, though he's left her in the lurch on the promotional trail, Jodi has nothing by nice things to say about him. She insists that working with Mel on the movie was "amazing" and adds:

"I think it's no secret that he's really one of the most loved people in the business, professionally."

Yeah, tell that to the cast of The Hangover II. They might disagree with you.

Save your breath, Jo. His time has come and gone and will only come again AFTER he's settled things with the ex-lover. If he's after redemption, he'll have to wait a bit longer to get it.

Mel Gibson Opens Up About Tapes Of His Tirades!

mel gibson talks tirade tapes

Last we heard about Mel Gibson, The Beaver director Jodie Foster was continuing to defend the man.

Now, Mel is coming to his own defense with regards to the tapes of his offensive rants towards Oksana Grigorieva.

Here's what he had to say about the tapes:

"Who anticipates being recorded? Who anticipates that? Who could anticipate such a personal betrayal?"

"I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality — period. I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited.”

“[The tapes represent] one terribly, awful moment in time, said to one person, in the span of one day and [not] what I truly believe, or how I’ve treated people my entire life.”

More from Mel on the tapes:

"The main thing [about the tape scandal] is that it was terribly humiliating and painful for my family [and] all my kids."

We're certainly sorry for the kids, but then again, all of this could have been avoided if Mel hadn't said such awful things in the first place.

What do U think about Mel's comments regarding his tirade tapes?

Jodie Foster Continues To Defend Mel 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 Foster To Give Up Acting, Wants To Direct Science Fiction Flick

Filed under: Film FlickersJodie Foster

We guess she wants to focus on directing from now on!

Jodie Foster, who just finished up taking the directorial reigns on the upcoming Mel Gibson drama, The Beaver, has revealed that she wants to give up acting for good, and has even signed on to direct a new science fiction film!

She explains:

"I've reached that point where I don't want to act very much anymore. I am much more interested in holding off on acting, after 45 years as an actor. It's a long period of time to do the same thing. [Her new science fiction project] There's a family element to it, but it's much more a genre movie. I'd like to do that because that's a world I live in as an actor but I've never really gone to as a director. It's not anywhere close to being ready. [I don't write], so that always puts me at the mercy of some enormous talent that comes out of the woodwork that somehow has the same obsessions as me."

Well, seeing as she's set to appear in the film Elysium, we're relieved to know she's not giving up acting all-together, but think it's great that she's continuing to expand beyond her comfort zone and direct a genre piece!

Keep up the good work, gurl! We're excited to see your career progress down this path!
