Go Braveheart!

First, know this: I do not condone anti-Semitic talk or drunk driving. (Unless it's extremely funny. Just kidding.)

But yesterday Mel Gibson just wiggled his way back up a little on the likability chart. I'm not sure if you saw it or heard about it, but Mel called a TV reporter an asshole during a press junket for his new movie because the reporter asked questions about the "incident" that sent Mr. Gibson into obscurity four years ago.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against journalism or reporting, and it definitely makes for an uncomfortable, juicy situation when people keep asking about an actor's apparent/supposed anti-Semitic behavior, but rather than answer the question like a rehearsed, choreographed robot with little or no sincerity, Mel actually showed some emotion and disdain for the question, albeit with a little douchiness.

And, prediction, this little moment caught on TV might be the little thing that saves Mel's career. We shall see.

For the record, Apocalypto kicked ass.

Here's yesterday video:
