MEL GIBSON should win an Academy Award for his performance on "Good Morning America" ["Gibson Has a Lot to Sell" by Tim Rutten, Oct. 14]. The whole interview reeked of insincerity in an effort to refocus public attention on the real passion in his heart -- promoting his risky new directorial effort, "Apocalypto."
Gibson is an embarrassment. He had a chance to be honest, and he blew it. I would have had more respect for him if he simply said, "Yes, I hate Jews. I can't help it. You would too if you grew up with a Jew-bashing, Holocaust-denying father like I did."
