    Screen writers often use tape recorders in their work. I wouldn't assume he brought for any hidden purpose other than to record notes about the script.

    It's not a huge accomplishment to be on one's best behavior for a couple of hours in a room full of ministers.

    Why are people still watching this guy? He's not even that attractive anymore.

    I wouldn't say that. Eszterhas has a history of asshattery all his own, with no help from Mel.

    Clearly he has issues but I'm leery about 'recordings' that don't included everything up to the rant. I'm sure if you were a fly on the wall of any meeting with producers and writers you would hear the same thing. It may not be right but if it weren't Mel Gibson or Christan Bale would anyone care? If I were Mel Gibson I would record everything I said so you can hear what Joe Eszterhas said prior to Gibson to set him off, it seems contrived and set up.

    "Why don't I have a first draft of 'The Maccabees'? What the **** have you been doing? I'll type it!

    "I go to work, you're getting paid, I'm not! ****! I am earning money for a filthy little ****** who takes advantage of me! Just like every *******! So hurry the **** up!"
    Well Joe, where is your first draft? What have you been doing? They are legitimate questions. My biggest problem is why he would want Joe Eszterhas to write for him in the first place, that guy sucks.

    Why were they considering having Mel Gibson in a Jewish-themed movie? Is this a joke?

    I heard part of this on TMZ last night. Unbelieveable.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Please please please please please, Jodie Foster, this time, do not come to this hateful creature's defense.

    Another round of that and the stain may spread to your reputation.

    THIS^
    Also, I think if they don't do something about him he may kill someone one day.
    And he should not be alowed near his little girl. She is not safe with him.

    Joe did not release it until Mel and His lawyer called his son a liar. And claimed there was no such tape and it didn't happen.
    If someone was calling my child a liar, I would protect his reputation too.

    Is the movie about the "hebrew uprising" or about the "punk-band"?

    Google Mel's arrest for DWI.

    I think that the question was not where has he ever been, but where in this new particular rant?

    Not that I am defending Mel - I think he is an angry man who is used to getting his own way either by money/power or ranting. I have not gone to any Gibson's movies for years and will not in the future

    I heard the old DUI insident tape. I was talking about the current rant. Some newspapers linking it to "anti-semitism" as well.

    DUI rant was not technically "anti-semitic" either.... He used few slurs showing his dislike for jews. Mel Gibson is not educated enough to know what "Semite" is....

    In an interview with Diane Sawyer few years back Mel Gibson confessed to trying to strangle a toaster when his bread got stuck.......
