Mel Gibson must be down on his knees thanking his bff Jesus that he knocked up Oksana Grigorieva (while sill married, possibly separated) because now he can talk about a baby and the fact that he’s an octo-dad while he promotes his new movie Edge of Darkness instead of addressing the past.
On Jay Leno last night the 54 year old Gibson says he’s more “mellow” with this baby, though I don’t know what that means because he admits “Her mother does the lion’s share of the work, but you know, I support her.”
He also says it’s been 18 days since he gave up his 45 year smoking habit, because he has a three month old daughter and someday “I want to play tennis with her”….when? When you are 65?
If you can’t tell, Mel is still on my shit list with Chris Brown where he will likely stay forever. You may be able to expunge a DUI from your record that doesn’t erase what happend. I’m surprised Hollywood has embraced him again. If Simon Monjack can shame Brad Pitt and Matt Damon for considering doing Happy Feet 2, I can shame the people who do a movie with Mel.
Here’s Gibson and the horse he rode in on, Oksana Grigorieva, at the Edge of Darkness premiere yesterday. I would rather watch a drill going into my eye.
