This man SERIOUSLY needs some anger-management help! Or psychiatric medication...oh, wait, isn't he a scientologist who doesn't believe in psychiatry? That might help explain some things...
Quote:

Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas says he and his family were house guests at Mel Gibson‘s Costa Rica home in December when the Oscar-winning actor-director went on a violent, profanity-laden rant that was recorded on an iPod by Eszterhas’ son.

Eszterhas provided the recording, about two-and-a-half minutes long, to gossip website The Wrap.

Gibson’s rep declined to comment on the recording. But TMZ reported that the actor is looking into whether Eszterhas and his son, Nick, violated any laws in Costa Rica by secretly recording him in his home.

Eszterhas says the audio file features an enraged Gibson ranting against the “Basic Instinct” screenwriter and Gibson’s ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.

“Why don’t I have a first draft of ‘The Maccabees’? What the f*** have you been doing?” a man’s voice is heard screaming on the recording. Eszterhas said at the time of the recording he had yet to deliver a script for a new project they’d been working on, set to be titled “The Maccabees.”

The voice on the recording continues, “I am earning money for a filthy little … [person] who takes advantage of me.”

Gibson settled his custody case in August with Grigorieva, with whom he has a 2-year-old daughter, Lucia, agreeing to give Grigorieva $750,000, as well as continue to pay for the multimillion-dollar home he purchased for her and Lucia and provide additional financial support for the child, according to Associated Press.

The recording was made on an iPod Dec. 7, 2011, by Nick Eszterhas, the screenwriter’s 15-year-old son, who had accompanied his parents to Gibson’s lavish Costa Rica estate.

Joe Eszterhas, 67, told The Wrap that he released the recording in reaction to Gibson’s comments last week that the screenwriter is a liar, which followed Eszterhas’ nine-page letter published in The Wrap, which accuses Gibson of “hating Jews” and asserts that Gibson used the writer to deflect Gibson’s anti-Semitic reputation.

The plot of “The Maccabees” is intended to be about Jewish heroism, and would be a new turn for Gibson, who was criticized for his portrayal of Jews in the blockbuster “The Passion of the Christ” in 2004. Gibson also made anti-Semitic in 2006 during a DUI incident in Mailbu, California. The actor later apologized to “everyone in the Jewish community for the vitriolic and harmful words.”

Eszterhas told The Wrap,”Gibson called me a liar. And I also have some reason to believe he’s creating a PR blitz questioning my truthfulness.”

The tirade reportedly began while guests were gathered for drinks and Gibson, 56, was staring at a photo of himself and his baby daughter, Luci. According to Eszterhas and his family, Gibson abruptly flew into a rage about how he is aging and hates ex-girlfriend Grigorieva, knocked over a totem pole and threw a cellphone.

Screenwriter Randall Wallace, his girlfriend Elizabeth Topp, Gibson friend Brad Hillstrom and household staff were all present at the time of the incident, Eszterhas said.

The release of the recording is the latest in a public dispute between the screenwriter and actor-director, which went public with Eszterhas’ nine-page letter in which he accused Gibson of wild, out-of-control behavior, anti-Semitic remarks and threatening violent against Grigorieva.

Gibson responded last week by calling Eszterhas’ allegation “utter fabrications” and maintained that the studio was unhappy with his script first draft. He also apologized to Eszterhas for venting his frustration at the screenwriter’s failure to produce a script on time.

“I did react more strongly than I should have. I promptly sent you a written apology, the colorful words of which you apparently now find offensive. Let me now clearly apologize to you and your family in the simplest of terms,” Gibson said in a letter published by Deadline.com, while adding, “In 25 years of script development I have never seen a more substandard first draft or a more significant waste of time.”

“The bottom line is it shows to me he badly needs help,” Eszterhas told The Wrap. “My interest isn’t to damage him with this tape but to prevent damage being done to others, starting with Jews, including Oksana and now, I’m sure, me. I strongly believe that unless he seeks and receives some kind of psychiatric help, someone is going to get hurt.” http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2012/04/mel-gibson-caught-in

Mel obviously has anger issues, no argument there. But in this case, I would have flown off the handle, too. You hire a guy to write a script, pay him (very well, no doubt), and then after 15 months, he has not written a word - and then tries to turn a work session into a vamily vacation.... Yeah, I'd be screaming at him too.

I don't see how this makes Mel a liar, as Esterhas claims - Mel talked about this very fight in his response, even.

All the bad publicity he's had the last few years makes Mel Gibson sound like a
real bastard, to put it mildly.

But here, He was talking to a man who works for him in the privacy of his own home.
By the rules of basic decency as I understand them, what he said should remain private.

But instead it was recorded and published. I feel he was ambushed.
Be Paranoid, Mel!

And this is a huge part of why I don't ever want to be really famous, all your private bidness gets spread around like peanut butter on bread and everyone judges you for things which you've said, done, thought about doing, been told to do, what people think you've done and why they think you've done it etc. No thanks.

I assume you're my pal until you let me know otherwise.

That's reasonable, but you know it goes way past that with celebrities, everyone wants to know everything about them and makes up stuff when real life answers aren't juicy enough. I wouldn't mind getting locally known, but not actually famous enough for all that privacy invasion stuff.

I assume you're my pal until you let me know otherwise.

Gotta agree with you on this one. 15 months and not even a rough draft? How did he THINK that was gonna play?

It's only a matter of time before he starts saying things like, "Tiger Blood" and "Winner"! If he's not on drugs then he should be on drugs.

Oh, Mel's a mess, no doubt - but in this case, I think he probably has a legitimate reason to be angry. Sometimes even the whacko has the right to righteously lose it.

Review: Get the Gringo =>
http://www.craveonline.com/film/reviews/187549-review-get-the-gringo

Mel Gibson plays one of the most compelling antiheroes in years ...

Clearly Mel Gibson still has a box office stigma, even after the mild success of
The Beaver last year. As a result, it seems that the studio is trying to shunt
his most recent film, Get the Gringo, onto the straight-to-TV market, and are
intentionally keeping it out of theaters to avoid any sort of media firestorm that
such an action would incur. Gibson, despite all of his offensive off-screen antics,
you'll find, is still a rousing and charismatic performer, and Get the Gringo is,
despite it all, a wickedly enjoyable piece of scuzz cinema that would, perhaps,
benefit from a theatrical release. Since this film is clearly being pushed to the
side, some geek critics (well, notably Harry Knowles) is lionizing it as the next
great outsider crime film. It debuts on DirecTV on Tuesday May 1st.
