Mel Gibson October 24, 2010

I have been very disappointed in Mel Gibson for several years.

He was one of my favorites. After Mad Max and the Lethal Weapon series, he directed and starred in the Academy Award-winning Braveheart. In 2004, he directed and produced The Passion of the Christ, a very faithful portrayal of the last hours in the life of Jesus Christ. But Mel has a big mouth: homophobia, misogyny, and antisemitism. And now his ugly divorce from Robyn and the mess he’s made of his relationship with Oksana Grigorieva.

He cannot keep his personal life and his big mouth separate from his professional life.

I am not paying anymore for satellite TV to the trailer, so today I’m watching some old DVD’s. The one on now is Forever Young with Mel, Jamie Lee Curtis, Elijah Wood and George Wendt. The scene on now is Billy Holliday singing “Just the Thought Of You”, in which Daniel (Mel) has a romantic moment with Claire (Jamie Lee) following the flood of his memories from fifty years before brought on by the song. I cried along with Daniel, Claire, and the rest of Western civilization.

I’ve decided that I, for one, will keep Mel’s private and personal lives separate.
