Gibson Stunned By Level Of Forgiveness

Subscribe to Mel Gibson alerts

Oscar winner Mel Gibson is shocked by the level of forgiveness he has been shown in the wake of his arrest and subsequent anti-Semitic tirade this summer (06). The Braveheart star was arrested in California in July (06) on suspicion of drink-driving and made racist comments to his arresting officers. Gibson appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO on Thursday (07DEC06) to promote his new film APOCALYPTO sporting a suit and a new clean-cut image. When Leno made a joke about his new style, Gibson quickly shot back, "It's the defendant look." He claims he is coping with the fallout from the scandal saying, "I've been overwhelmed by understanding. It just tells you how you get things wrong sometimes. "So, it's great. It's a work in progress. I did the right thing - walk on, keep your side of the street clean and move on..." Gibson revealed that he has been sober for four-and-a-half months jokingly adding, "If I feel like clutching for the turpentine, (DANNY) DeVITO and (GEORGE) CLOONEY just talk me through it. "It's a gradual thing, it doesn't happen overnight."
