Jodie Foster Will Rescue Mel Gibson’s Reputation Even If She Has to Exaggerate Wildly

Whatever Mel Gibson did to secure Jodie Foster’s undying love and devotion, it must have been good. Foster, a longtime friend of Gibson’s and his director on the ill-fated The Beaver, has already publicly defended him, and now she’s doing it again. Foster told Extra that Gibson is an “incredible and loyal friend" and, "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." With regards to the last statement, there seem to be two possible explanations: (1) Either no Jews or black people (except the Mel-loving Whoopi Goldberg) work in the film business, or (2) it is not true.
