Long before Mel Gibson gave his opinions about the “fucking Jews” (they’re responsible for all the wars), blowjobs (he deserves them), “wetbacks” (he employs them), “niggers” (they move in packs and rape scantily dressed ladies), and whether or not his girlfriend needed “a bat in the side of the head” (yes), he was famous for a 1992 interview where he was asked about homosexuality.
It was everything you would expect from a Mel Gibson interview about gay people. In other words he pointed to his ass and said, “This is only for taking a shit”, then sarcastically asked if he looked or sounded gay, or if he “moved like them.”
“C’est la vie,” says his newly revealed gay brother, who did an interview with the Australian Sunday Times yesterday.
Andrew Gibson, 43, has finally broken his self-imposed silence after watching his sibling’s reputation get torn to shreds in the wake of allegations by his ex-partner Oksana Grigorieva and his impending divorce from wife of 28 years, Robyn.
Defending the embattled actor, Mr Gibson said the entire Gibson clan refused to believe alleged taped conversations of Mel, 55, using abusive, homophobic and racist language are really of him.
“When I heard them I just thought, ‘That isn’t Mel’. He has never said anything abusive, aggressive or racist in his life.”
Andrew also says Mel was supportive, mostly, when he revealed that he was gay.
“I was at a family dinner at Aria restaurant when I told Mel. He just said, ‘It’s not my choice, but I love you and you’re my brother’.”
In other Mel Gibson news, Radar says he and his gold medallion almost fell down after throwing a little hissy fit in Malibu Saturday night before driving away in his Smart car (full size of the headline pic here). So if it’s not too late, I’d like to answer his question when he asked if he ever looked or moved like a foppish gay stereotype.
