After months of silence following the leak of threatening phone calls between himself and the mother of his child, Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson finally broke his silence. In a wide-ranging interview with Deadline’s Allison Hope Weiner, Gibson talked — sometimes openly, sometimes evasively — about his personal shame, the friends who’ve stood by him, and where his damaged career goes from here. He also vehemently denied the notion that he’s a racist and misogynist.
“I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion, or sexuality — period,” he said.” I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited. You have to put it all in the proper context of being in an irrationally, heated discussion at the height of a breakdown, trying to get out of a really unhealthy relationship. It’s one terribly, awful moment in time, said to one person, in the span of one day and doesn’t represent what I truly believe or how I’ve treated people my entire life.”
