Winona Ryder reveals ugly Mel Gibson incident

By Alexandra Heilbron on December 17, 2010 | 9 Comments

In the January 2011 issue of GQ, Winona Ryder somehow starting talking about Mel Gibson, how she bumped into him at a party and found out something very interesting about him. “I remember, like, 15 years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk. I was with my friend, who’s gay. [Mel Gibson] made a really horrible gay joke,” Ryder said. “And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”

    Oven dodgers? Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anything more hateful in my life.

    very suspicious and very much unverifiable. If it cannot be proven then why slander someone.

    That wouldn’t be his first anti-semitic remark. And I agree with Samantha… wow.

    Why would she lie, I mean, what would be the point? Anyway, I knew he was a bigot and a hater but this takes the cake.

    I was actually considering seeing his new movie, but I don’t think I could stomach seeing him on screen after knowing he said that. That’s beyond disgusting. Although, after hearing the stuff he said to his ex-girlfriend, I don’t know why I’m surprised.

    As a Christian and movie lover, it is completely deplorable seeing the kind of life that Mel Gibson is leading, what with his public drunkenness, statements and behaviour towards women, supposedly ones that he cares significantly for. After seeing the way he lives his life, no wonder the vast majority of mankind both hates organized religion in any context and can’t take Mel Gibson seriously. Such a horrible waste of a once-profound talent.

    That comment was extreme! It’s also 15yr old comment which is not verifiable and also why did Winona bring that up all of a sudden out of the blue??? Either way, we all know Mels rants now and it’s sad but he should really just live on his jet with the gold toilets miles into the sky above everyone else where he thinks he belongs anyway.

    For a guy who seems to be very much into his religious beliefs, he certainly picks and chooses which parts of the religion to enforce. Like, I’m sure his pre-marital affairs aren’t in the bible as being allowed. Or extra-marital affairs either. But his anti-semitism is off the charts, yet the bible preaches forgiveness and such but for a man who was not around in the Jesus days or for that matter for the WWII days, he doesn’t seem to let it go.

    For someone who proclaims to be a “devout” Catholic, he’s an embarrassment. No real Christian who follows the Bible would do or say any of the things he says and does. I’ve never heard that term, I don’t know if he made it up or his racist hater father did, but I was shocked when I read that. I’ve heard a lot of derogatory racist names, but that’s the most disgusting one I’ve ever heard. I hope he continues to say it to random people until he says it to the wrong person and gets the tar beaten out of him.
