Mel Gibson: I don't care if I never act again

In a brutally honest new interview, Mel Gibson opens up about the aftermath of those rants at ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and says he doesn't care if he never acts again.

Gibson admits to Deadline that he regrets the harsh things he said in the recorded tirades that were leaked last year, but claims the public didn't treat him any differently afterward.

"I was angry at me. But no one expressed any anger at me. They may have felt it," he says, adding that he never worried about how the incident might affect his career. "I don't care if I don't act anymore… I could easily not act again. It's not a problem."

While Gibson made statements on the tapes that are considered sexist and racist, he denies he is either of those things.

"I've never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality — period," he says. "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."

The tapes certainly haven't helped his reputation around Hollywood. Gibson was initially cast as a Bangkok tattoo artist in "The Hangover – Part II" but was dropped because members of the cast and crew disapproved of his hiring. Still, the actor seems unfazed - while the "Hangover" guys may not be fans of Gibson, other celebrities have had his back, including pals Whoopi Goldberg and Jodie Foster.

(Gibson has been friends with his "Beaver" co-star and director since making 1994's "Maverick," and says he'd give Foster "a pedicure every day of the week if I could.")

Though Gibson won't talk specifics about his legal battles with Grigorieva, he does say the incident was "terribly humiliating and painful" for his family.

"Maybe, when this is all over and hopefully, justice is achieved, maybe I could say something," he says. "But I'd never want to leave anything lying around that would... a lot of damage has been done. I don't want to add to it."

    Gibson is truy the LAST MAN standing in franchise slum Hollywood.

    As such he should STOP wasting time with self-basting sideshows.

    As such, he should gut up to the rendezvous of his life,
    taking on the 6 decades 'overlooked', awesomely relevant,
    EUGENICS 'unfriendly'

    ---------KOREAN WAR---------.

    AMEN

    Does anyone really think the MEL GIBSON will never act again? He will amillion times. This man is no different than any other man on earth who THOUGHT the grass was greener on the other side of the fence.....Then he realized the grass is only greener over THE SEPTIC TANK. He got played by that nasty little troll and because he gave up his wife and family only to find out he was played, HE WAS MAD AS HELL! YEA AND....She is a troll who deserved to have her azz beat and the fact that he did not kill this troll says alot about his self control. So he screamed at the top of his lungs saying the meanest stuff he could think of.......and......not the first and not the last person to do that especially after realizing he walked away from his marriage only to be done triple dirty by that gold digging troll. Mel say I'm sorry and keep it movong....The rest of us forgive you! Amen!

    It is funny and ridiculous that people give a crap what these people do with their personal lives. This "celebrity worship" most of you are suffering from really shows your messed up priorities. I suppose all of you are saints that can walk on water.

    I read these articles on celebrities to see if any of them will expose the twisted inter-workings of hollywood like Dave Chappelle has. The problem I think is that when a celebrity defies the will of Hollywood and the madmen running it they get dragged through the mud. Most of these celebrities have personal demons and most of the time those demons are well protected through agents and PR firms but when they don't do what they're told they all back away and unleash the tabloids on them. There is a great deal of money moving around in hollywood and everyone wants a piece of it. Sounds very similar to American Politics doesn't it?

    Edited? Right. I suppose the incident when you were arrested and made discriminatory remarks to the police was edited too, right? Why don't you man up and admit you are an alcoholic and you messed up and you need help? I've always loved your acting and always admired you until this happened. Until I see that you've gotten help and have apologized for *everything* you've done, I have no desire to spend another penny to see anything you act in, produce, or direct. I'm also fairly certain that many many others feel the same way. Just because you were most likely too drunk to remember it, does not mean that it didn't happen. Stop blaming others and get yourself some help. You're throwing your life down the tubes. Such a waste! Instead of saying you don't care, own up to it and stop drinking. Go to AA. Go to rehab and get well again. Make amends for what you've done and give your fans back the trust we had in you. Even if you don't care... We do.

    Let he who has NEVER spoke hurtful words be Mr. Gibson's judge. No one could ever justify uttering even unkind words let alone hurtful words. My Mom told me when I was a child that if you can't say something nice about a person, say nothing at all. There is already enough negativity in the world. Some of us paid a lot of money to see Mr. Gibson act. I'll continue paying money to see him act as long as he is good at what he does. I don't have enough exposure on a daily basis to judge who he is as a person. I don't like what he said on those tapes but to be totally honest, I'm not too proud of somethings I did and said in the throughs of passion or anger. I always say, "God grant me the serenity to acept the people I cannot change; the courage to change the only person I can; and the wisdom to know it's me."

      I wonder what your "god" (lowercase) would think of your beating a person with a baseball bat? I also wonder what he'd think of you making judgement on your fellow man when you are not capable of such a thing...only he is. Obviously, when you were spelling "god", you got your consonants reversed and meant to spell "dog". That IS where you get your mental abilities, right? Your dog? It's the only thing that fits your incredibly stupid, backwoods, inbred mind of yours. Now, go back to playing your banjo.

    Why do some of you think it is normal and OK that Mel threatened to k ill his wife and that he att acked her and be at her while she was holding their baby? In what way is any of that OK? A lot of people have said, "we all say and do things when we are angry" or "who hasn't done something like this". Um, most people. Sane people! I do agree that mental illness can mess a person up and make them say and do things that don't represent who they are as a person but that doesn't make these actions OK. Unless Mel gets serious mental health treatment and medication I'm not interested in him at all. And I think that the rants do reveal something about him as a person, ill or not. Anyone who thinks the stuff he said is OK must have not heard the tapes or understood he threatened to k ill his wife and beat her or they must be mentally ill themselves. Normal people don't think this is OK or normal behavior.

I feel sorry for Mr. Gibson that he got to know somebody who just want it his money ,cuz I honestly believe that that girl is a gold digger, to bad for the child he will never see a normal family, thanks to mom money ambition.

    Remember the Good Ol Days, when your average American had thicker skin & you could argue with someone and call them names, etc without having to later apologize to every group, sub-group, class and/or gender of people who weren't personally involved in the argument? Nowadays, it seems America's collective self-esteem is so low that we feel we're owed an explanation, an apology and the end of someone's livelihood every time they use a derogatory term.. Personally, I think its disgusting..

    Not one ounce of remorse, no accountability, refuses to accept any responsibility. When he says "I don't care if I ever act again" what he's really saying is "I don't care what anyone thinks about me". This has nothing to do with free speech- it's about violence, abuse, and depraved narcissism. Time to fade into the sunset Mel. Hope you can sober up, get honest, learn a touch of humility, and be a good father to your children. You could have been an example for others- instead you are a cautionary tale.

    Gibson was never really much of an actor. He has always been more of a celebrity personality. When people enjoyed that personality they paid to watch Mel Gibson as Mel Gibson in a vehicle that promoted his best traits. Now that people don't enjoy the Mel Gibson character his career has tanked. If he was truly an actor people would be able to differentiate the difference between his private acts and his work. Unfortunately as a personality his face time on screen is all that he has to offer. It's sad, but there are millions of people who are unlikeable that have never had the opportunities that he has enjoyed.

    Time heals many things. Many people will forgive, but it is doubtful they will forget. Sometimes all one can do is learn to live with mistakes they have made. This may be the case with Gibson. The problem he will probably always encounter is within Hollywood itself. I mean who is going to hire him considering the kind of controversy he has around him? I'm sure he has already had some of that. The man is talented; I won't take that from him. But he is going to be dealing with the consequences of his choices for a long time.

    I have loved Mel Gibson for decades, simply because he is one of the few actors (or actresses) I could rely on for superior entertainment – an escape from the reality of my life. Nobody is perfect. Nobody is always proud of everything that comes spewing out of their mouth when they're enraged. My point is that anyone who dares to pass judgment on Mel Gibson needs to look in a mirror, and be honest about what they see. Mel Gibson has had a wildly sucessful career in the entertainment industry, both in front of and behind the camera. Most people as wealthy as he surely must be would retire. One thing is certain. All the nasty comments on this board have been posted by people who wouldn't be proud of what they see in a mirror. Mel Gibson is guilty of saying nasty things to his wife during a nasty argument. The nasty people on this board are guilty of publishing nasty, ugly, hateful things in a permanent public way, with premeditation, not in the heat of the moment.

    I've met Mel Gibson when he was promoting "The Passion of the Christ". He was a humble, pleasant man. We all have our faults, and Mel can't drink. He's an angry drunk and seems to have learned his lesson. I find it sad that the liberal Hollywood elite support a child rapist like Roman Polanski, but are ready to rip apart Mel Gibson. I say good for Mel and I hope that his new movie (which is getting spectacular reviews) "The Beaver" is a big hit.

    Mel Gibson is an actor. As long as he is playing his roles well, I couldn't care less about his personal life, personal views, or anything which has nothing to do with his acting ability.

    A lot of the people on this "sound off" section are really full of it. To say that Mel Gibson is a has-been and not relevant is an obvious sign of immaturity and ignorance. Mel Gibson is an incredible actor whose legacy in film will live on past his death. He is an extremely talented actor and filmmaker. I don't excuse his actions, but I'm no one to cast a judgment. I don't know the entire story.....Also, God forbid a drunken video or recording of any of you guys gets leaked one day. Since none of you are celebrities you wouldn't get in the trouble that Mel's gotten himself into. No one is in the right state of mind when they are drunk and angry. I believe that Mel probably does have anger management issues, but it's not my place to judge him. Hopefully he gets the help he needs and returns to making great films. We need them! I love how people with their own issues will come to these forums and down on others to make themselves feel better.

    Well then if you are all so morally strong I here's a list of people you can't be fans of you 'holier than thous'
    Michael Jordan-cheated on his wife numerous times
    Magic Johnson-cheated on his wife...a lot!

    Britney spears-we all know
    Jay-z/notorious big/tupac-dealt drugs and look at the things they said on their albums

    The list goes on and on, I'm a fan of all above that I mentioned, everyone is their own individual, I don't expect them to think or do as I do, that's not why I'm a fan of them, as long as they make great movies/music or win games/championships that's what I want, I'm not up to these people looking for an idol or hero, everyone makes mistakes and has flaws.

      You're so right JayH! I think a lof of these people are "sounding off" because they know they have skeletons in their own closets. There are so many celebrities out there that have made "mistakes" and have done far worse than Mel and are forgiven. Hasn't Snoop Dogg been in and out of jail at least 20 times throughout his career for assault and you still see him on Jay Leno's couch every other week. No one can tell me that Snoop has more credibility and fame than the talented Mel Gibson. People are all full of double standards and they jump at the chance at laughing when someone is down. They love to put others down to raise up their own egos. The comments from some on this page tell me more about their own issues than anything else. I'm praying for Mel. I'm glad he still has friends that are there for him in his time of need. I wouldn't want to be the troubled friend of anyone on this page......

    We have a curious forgiveness double standard in this country. The things he said were terrible, but place them in the context of a volatile romantic relationship. Many people say things that are out of bounds when arguing with a significant other – they just aren't recorded. Chris Brown beat his girlfriend severely in the midst (presumably) of a similar argument, but he was welcomed back to the entertainment community. We place more emphasis on the racist things Gibson said than on the violent actions of Brown. I'd rather have a world where people make ignorant racist comments during arguments rather than violently attack the other person.

People with untreated bipolar who make threats do things like that. How will y ou feel then about him? He should get treatment and get well and then worry about acting.

      People who say, "who hasn't said or done something like this when we were angry" either did not hear the tapes or read that Mel threatened to kill his wife and attacked her and beat her while she was holding their *baby*. Do you really do things like that? Because if so you have a serious problem. It is OK to get angry and OK to say things when angry. It isn't normal or OK to threaten to kill someone or to attack them ever, especially if they are holding a baby! If you think any of that is normal and common I recommend you see a psychiatrist and get treatment and serious mental health medication. Yes, a good person could get mental illness and do things like this while out of their mind but they would be *crazy* and that would be the reason, not that it is in any way normal or OK.

      Really? He threatened to k ill his wife. He beat her while she was holding their baby. That's not normal and if you think it is there is something very wrong with your thinking. People get upset but they don't say and do what Mel did. His actions are those of a sick person with something like bipolar disease. Normal people don't do or say what he did, buttons pushed or not.

    God says only a righteous person can judge, but that person will never be judged righteously. I'm glad to know there are so many righteous folks judging Mel Gibson. The demons can make you say things you don't want to, better said a demon can speak thru you. When a person says ugly, nasty words to someone they have been touched by Satan. Judge not and you will not be judged. Judge a person and by the measure that you judge, you will be judged. Uusally a person speaks out of the abundance of their heart. People need to think and speak good, pure and holy words always. God created everyone different for His good pleasure, so if we have any kind of wisdom and intelligence we should respect everyone because we don't see what's inside them, but they are a creation of the "ALMIGHTY". Amen

      He threatened to kill his wife and attacked her while she was holding their *baby*. He has untreated serious mental health issues. What he did isn't an 'oh, everyone does that type of thing'. It is wacky and dangerous and scary. He needs medication and serious treatment. If you think what he did is something lots of people do you might check yourself and see if you also have serious mental health issues. It isn't normal to beat up your spouse. It isn't normal or OK to threaten to kill them. Nothing can excuse that or make it OK. I'm sure his actions are those of his illness and don't represent him as a person when treated properly with medication but until he gets that treatment he is dangerous and sick and scary and it shouldn't be said to be "OK" just because others also get upset sometimes. I get upset but wouldn't lay a hand on my spouse and I wouldn't accept having a hand laid or me, either.

As for those who are so quick to judge you and what has happen, I just want to say this to them, I am sure you people believe you are perfect, but the rest of us here, the normal one's, are not. Sad to say. we all make mistakes and more than once i might add, some of them are mistakes to painful to bare but we have to allow people to give us another chance in order to move foward with our lives. i care if mel doesn't act again he is a great, fun, entertaining, actor and it would be a great loss to the industry and the world if he doesn't act again. So Pls don't give up Mr Mel Gibson. you owe it to yourself bro

      Let me just say, there is too much religious talk in this thread. I'm not just pointing you out specifically, I just keep seeing it over and over again. People think just because he directed Passion of the Christ that they can take his side because "OMG his movie spoke to me"! Focus on the issue please. That being said, the next time someone on this thread makes a hurtful comment or says something in the heat of the moment, I want it recorded and sent to all the major media broadcasters so we can all crack jokes and throw our verbal "stones" at them, and PLEASE, let that person be famous so we can look down on them from our gigantic soapbox. The fact is, he is living in a grave that the public has dug for him, but we're too focused on our own feelings to even think about giving him the opportunity to redeem himself. Those of you who are Jewish or Black or whatever need to take a step back and look at a bigger picture: That at the end of the day, you're still going to go home, be with your family, and a guy like Mel Gibson will not affect your life... ever.

    Mel Gibson has made some very entertaining films in his career. I mean, films like Road Warrior, Lethal Weapon, What Women Want, and Payback may not be considered Hollywood "classics", but they entertained and did good business at the box office. But the fact of the matter is that it's been quite a while since Mel Gibson acted in any film that could really be considered a box office favorite. So to that end, if he never acts in another movie I don't think it will be that big a deal in the grand scheme of things. But on the other hand, I also don't think it's fair to forget what he has done as an actor and even as a director in the past. He has achieved great success, and has been a favorite of the public. Nothing he does now (or doesn't do in the future) will or should change that fact.

Stop apologizing because you think you have to. Your fight with your girlfriend is your business and you can tell the public to kiss you grits if they dont like it.

    I am taking both of my kids to see Mel's latest movie "Beaver". I agree with Lily Daisy...we can not be mad at someone forever. We all have faults. I am sure some of us have make big mistakes. The only difference is that we are not in the public. We are humans with work in progress. Many of us take extra chances to better our behavior. He, just like us deserves a chance at making the wrong right. Progress at any level takes time. Mel wish you only good things come your way. Hoping to enjoy your movie. I have enjoyed watching your movies over the year. You acting is so intense and emotional. Glad you are back on the big screen.

    I like Mel, he is a great actor. Quite honestly his personal life has no bearing on me in any way so I would be very disappointed if he gave up acting. I hope he comes out with another good movie soon. By the way, psycho *itches ex Tim Dalton had said what a nutbag she was from the start, that's why HE got custody of their son because she's a crazy person.

    I guess we can forgive women beaters and child rapists like mike tyson and give him a spot in The Hangover. Not to mention most every one who drinks has driven while intoxicated at least once. But let one person who makes a mistake or two be condemed for life. How many people here has ever been in an argument and never said hurtful things out of the heat of the moment. Yet, they all get up and continue working their 9 to 5. I think only those who are not guilty of ANY wrong doing should have the right to judge others. Therefore, only God has the right to judge. And to those who do not believe in God then only those who are guiltless have the right to judge. In other words, everyone shut up and let the man live his life.

      I totally agree with Robert P .. When you are an actor you can never say anything that the press is able to get hold of. I know it would be damn hard for me always to be politically correct 24/7. Give the guy a break , he is one Hell of an actor and a great director. I personally would love to see more from him.

      Robert, I've said a few hurtful things in my day but I learned not to because the other person not only said hurtful things back but used his fists as well. I never -never- hit my husband, no matter how angry I was. And at times, that anger was more than justified. Selling my things, stranding me at the mall because he was done shopping, even using my credit card to sign up for a health club membership. The person that beats another does not deserve forgiveness or another chance and if it takes becoming a societal pariah then so be it. We have to let these people, men and women, that it is not ok to abuse someone.

      I agree with Robert, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. But the lady is right too. Some people cannot be given clemency for their actions, and regardless of your spiritual beliefs, you may do better to just forgive, he will and has already be judged for his crimes.

      That's a shame, because his movie The Beaver is apparently absolutely Oscar-worthy when it comes to his performance. You know, everyone's perfectly keen to give guys like Chris Brown another chance. I'm not condoning what he did or said. He's clearly a man with a lot of issues. But the media as a whole is very against him and not really covering the fact that he legitimately seems to be trying to make amends.

      I tell racist jokes way more around my white friends than other ones. I make references to racial stereotypes during conversation (on occasion, for comedic effect). At work (in Buffalo, NY), there's an ongoing joke how on the news everyday, they host a feature of "Be On the Lookout For:" a criminal, and only rarely will it be a white guy. So I'll close my eyes during the segment and say, "Wait, wait! Let me guess... brown hair? Brown eyes?6'2, 225 lbs? Probably armed." And someone else may say, "Wrong!– he's definitely armed," and then we all get a nice chuckle.

      But none of the friends with whom I have lunch think lowly of black people, least of all me. I love my black friends just as much as my white ones. But often I don't want to miss a chance to be funny even at the expense of others, and ultimately I *have* done my little skit in front of a black friend when he joined us one day.

      Mel Gibson is right, that nothing said in a very heated argument should be taken literally. Ever. We've all flipped out and said things we really don't mean, just to draw any sort of hurtful reaction from someone, and if you've ever fought like this with a spouse or girlfriend, those statements can get extremely gritty and personal. I honestly feel that racist jokes and stereotyping like I do on a weekly basis are way more serious than irrational tirades, since jokes are told in a controlled, conscious manner and who knows WHAT is going to be said during a tirade.
