Mel Gibson's Apparently Going To Have To Work Harder To Alienate American Moviegoers

Believe it or not, more than three quarters of the respondents in a new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll said the release of the seemingly damning audio tapes of Gibson’s phone calls with estranged ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva would "not effect" the likelihood of their seeing one of his movies.
