Mel Gibson Gave Winona Ryder The Cutest Nickname

Winona Ryder appears in the new issue of GQ (above) where she recounts an incident with Mel Gibson who, to his credit, forwent the threats of arson-based oral rape and stuck to good ol’ fashioned anti-Semitism, like a gentleman:

“I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk. I was with my friend, who’s gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”

In Mel Gibson’s defense, who the hell brings a gay friend to meet him? Did this guy steal Winona’s boyfriend or something? Because, seriously, there’s no excuse for that. That’s like waving a steak in front of a racist bear then acting surprised when it pulls a gun and drunkenly shoots you in the face. C’mon.

NOTE: This seemed relevant, and I’m also hoping someone can explain how every single alarm in the Vatican didn’t go off at once. “These a boys, they’s a legal age! No, no, no, my’s a birthday is a ruined!”
