Way to go Mel!
Wonder if that 'Apocalypto' is going to be any good?
Mel got OWNED!
Jesus could have been his sober cab, if Mel hadn't Passioned Him to death.
I still love you Mel!
I still love you too Mel
It must be nice to be a celebrity and get off with a little slap on the wrist. I wonder if they would have given him a larger fine had he hurt someone. Fucking scumbag.
It's a Mel Gibson movie. Jesus will probably turn up and save the Mayans from the evil English.
I'd rather see Tina Turner or that little boy/ape with the razor sharp boomerang.
hahaha, good for Mel.
One thing I will never, ever understand is why so many people give a shit about the personal lives of celebrities.
Hmmmm... no mention of Stan or Kenny.
I guess they didn't get an advance of the $20 bucks Mel's gonna owe them after that next movie.
Amen to that. (even though Mel is my fave actor)
The teaser sure sucked. Waste of a couple minutes.
This thread is useless without mugshots.
Smoking Gun doesn't have it yet.
I could care less about his life. That is, until he uses a weapon (car) while intoxicated. They should lock the fucking scumbag son of a bitch away for at least a few months.
Far as I'm concearned that's between him and the courts.
I don't drink, I have no love of drunk drivers, but California treats it as a misdemeanor, and no one goes away for a few months on a misdemeanor first offense. (Near as I can tell, his only other similar offense came 22 years ago in Toronto. Not exactly building up a strong case file here.)
So you have someone here who fucked up, like we all do from time to time. There is no sign of a cover up. He paid his bail, and hasn't been sentenced, and even the harshest penalty is unlikely to have any affect on his movies, the one and only way most of us will ever interact with him.
But what if he had killed someone? Would that make it any worse?
People drive drunk everyday. Hundreds if not thousands of people are arrested for DUI's/DWI's.
Are you condemning him because you dislike his movies, or because you dislike the fact he drove drunk?
I've driven while drunk. I was 20 at the time, and 21 at another time. Do I deserve to go to Hell and be locked up in prison?
So quick to judge other peoples' mistakes.
Separate names with a comma.
