Mel Gibson

OPINION
August 4, 2006 | Paul Slansky, PAUL SLANSKY is the co-author, with Arleen Sorkin, of "My Bad: 25 Years of Public Apologies and the Appalling Behavior That Inspired Them."
LOOK AT THOSE PHOTOS of Mel Gibson taken at Moonshadows in Malibu only hours before his arrest July 28. How innocent he looks in his ignorance of the fact that he's mere hours, maybe only minutes, from self-immolation. From letting his id run briefly wild and changing his life forever. From committing one of those rare acts for which no apology short of "I'm sorry you had to see my true inner ugliness" can have any meaning. Movie people are infrequent apologizers.

Mel Gibson did something neither Bruce Willis in "Hart's War," Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Collateral Damage" or Kevin Costner in "Dragonfly" have been able to do this year--headline a hit movie. To be sure, Gibson's Vietnam War-era film, "We Were Soldiers," which debuted with $20.2 million to claim the No. 1 spot over the weekend, lagged behind the openings of his two previous movies, "What Women Want" ($33.6 million) and "The Patriot" ($22.

As expansive as he can be on many other subjects -- perhaps you've lately gleaned some of his random musings on Judaism -- Mel Gibson has been uncharacteristically shy in discussing his TV career. Yes, the 50-year-old actor-director does have a television production resume, although he may have hurled it down a rat hole, along with the remnants of his matinee idol status, after his anti-Semitic tirade during a DUI arrest last month.

Mel Gibson, star of such violence-studded films as "The Road Warrior" and "Lethal Weapon," is choosy about what he lets his six children see. "I think there is a level of violence in films that's unacceptable," he said. "I don't think there's anything like that in 'Lethal Weapon.' It's not pornographic violence. I've seen films where it was too much." But Gibson said he would not let his children watch "The Road Warrior," which is set in a violent, post-apocalyptic world.
