Jodie Foster Sticks Up For ‘Honest’ Mel Gibson

Filed under: Jodie Foster,Mel Gibson — by celebreporter @ 12:55 pm

Jodie Foster has stuck up for Mel Gibson, claiming her fellow Oscar winning actor is not an anti-Semite.

It is widely accepted Gibson told police officers arresting him for drunk driving that, “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.”

However, Foster has said that these comments only reflect the 50-year-old’s long-term battle with alcoholism, rather than his beliefs.

She tells the Los Angeles Times, “Is he an anti-Semite? Absolutely not. But it’s no secret that he has always fought a terrible battle with alcoholism.

“I just wish I had been there, that I had been able to say, ‘Don’t do it, don’t take that drink.’

Mel is honest, loyal, kind, but alcoholism has been a lifelong struggle for him and his family.”

Gibson faces driving whilst under the influence charges following his arrest in Malibu in the early hours of the 28 July.

  1. I can understand mel has an alcohol problem, but I thought alcohol lowered your inhibitions so that you would say/do things you wouldn’t normally do sober, not made you say things you didn’t believe or feel deep down inside. Unless he is suffering from some sort of schizophrenia, I just can’t believe the alcohol put the thoughts in his head. I believe the alcohol made him say what was in his head. Jodie, while I love her, is delusional.
