Q & A

Well Mel Gibson has done it again.  Another tirade with the mother of his baby.  Have you read what she taped him yelling at her?  Ok, my question is.....will you stop watching his movies because of his treatment to her and his 2006 incident?

    • After watching him in What Women Want he was already showing his decline as Sexiest Man Alive (for me anyway)not to say he wasn't still attractive...but then came out all the craziness and I lost more interest in him as an actor, same with Brad Pitt after the Jolie/Aniston fiasco...so would I still watch anything with him, yes,  if the project appealed to me, I think I am able to seperate the actor from his personal life, but in the back of my head his outside persona would still be there.

    • I’m the say way.  I personally don’t care about their personal problems or politics.  If I find them entertaining then I’ll watch their movies.

      I think they should let the personal stay personal,  non of us want our lives in the open.

    • I’ve never found him attractive or even talented, so I pass up his movies just as a matter of “Eh. Let’s see something else.”

    • I really couldn’t care less about his personal life.  I don’t care about my mechanics personal life either, he may beat his wife for all I know, but I’m still going to take my car to him for repairs because he’s good.  I’m still going to see Mel’s movies cuz he’s a good actor.

    • I’m interested in the character an actor plays in a movie and how well they protray it, and
      the story of the movie. Personally, I think he’s an ass and he hasn’t made a movie that I’d
      buy.

    • I will still watch his movies. The last movie I watched was his recent one “Edge of Darkness” It’s a shame whats going on with his personal life, but It’s not my problem, It’s not my business.

    • Frannie that’s the last movie of his we saw as well.  Kinda reminded me of the Liam Neeson movie “Taken“.

    • This is a really tough question for me!  

      There are a few businesses that I don’t shop at because I don’t like their stand on certain issues, or I don’t like how they shut out the small guy, or they are not philanthropic.  That is my small way of letting them know that I won’t give them my business if I don’t like the way they do business.

      I think I look at Mel Gibson as a business too.  When I go see his movie/s, I am putting money in his pocket.  I don’t condone domestic violence so why would I want to ‘tell’ him that I do by giving him my money?  I can’t force him to go to counseling or to treat his family better but I surely do have the choice whether he gets my money or not.

      I wouldn’t take my car to a mechanic who beat his wife either.  I can’t make him stop but I sure can choose whether I support his bad behavior through my hard earned cash.  It may be inconvenient for me to find a new mechanic - but I couldn’t live with myself if I continued supporting his business.  Which is more important?  Convenience or self respect?

      HOWEVER ( happy ) I also wouldn’t condemn someone who made a different choice from me.  They have to make their own choices and live with themselves.  They have the equal right that I do to choose who gets their money.

      Phew - I read this question an hour ago and really had to do some self examination!  Thanks!

    • Never liked him, too cocky. Never paid money to see any of his movies. Sometimes fame goes to people’s heads, making them feel they can say anything, do anything and get away with it. Unfortunately, the actors‘, politicians’ and athletes’ lifestyles puts them in the public eye, and they know their private life will eventually become public, no matter what.

      Cracked up laughing when I read Dave Chappelle was tossed off an airplane recently because he made a scene regarding the bathroom wasn’t to his liking. Even bothered the pilot. Not so funny getting kicked off a plane!

    • If my family saw me at work the probably wouldn’t recognize me either.  I am a different person as I have to be tougher and bitchier so they wouldn’t like it.  That said - Mel Gibson is an actor.  His personal life should be that personal but his attention grabbing soon to be ex chose to post their disagreement to give him bad press.  When she asks for money and he isn’t working then who will she blame?

    • Quit seeing his movies long ago.  I can’t support the work of someone I know is a bad person.  If I knew my mechanic was beating his wife, I’d go elsewhere.  I found out our dentist allowed his 14-year-old daughter to have huge, basically unsupervised party in which two girls got hurt - my daughter is in her grade, but did not attend party - we do not go to him anymore after a girl who did attend confirmed for me that the dad was the only adult, and there were 50+ kids with bonfire.  My point is, I cannot knowingly support the work of someone who is an irresponsible role model in their personal life.  Have trouble watching Jude Law after nanny thing.  Not that someone can’t redeem themselves, but if public figure, they must do just that in some way.  Our dentist, when I asked him  about it, basically shrugged it off as “teens, what are you going to do?“. He will not get our money again.

    • I agree with Trudy....what you do on your own time is your business but I don’t have to contribute to your pocketbook either.  That’s my business!!  

      I think his alcoholism is ruling him instead of him ruling the alcoholism.  Once an alcoholic...always alcoholic. You just have to be on the winning side and I think Mel Gibson is not.
