Mel Gibson Breaks His Silence


Mel Gibson gave his first interview since his very public split from girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, antisemitic rantings, and firing from The Hangover 2. Gibson is promoting the release of his forthcoming film, The Beaver, with Jodie Foster, but admitted that the combined weight of the public scorn has left him feeling jaded: "I don’t care if I don’t act anymore," he said. "I could easily not act again. It’s not a problem." His favorites right now? Jodie Foster ("I’d give her a pedicure every day of the week if I could"). And Whoopi Goldberg. "I knew Whoopi before she was Whoopi. She’s great and I always liked her and loved her." [Deadline]
