Mel Gibson Gave Winona Ryder The Cutest Nickname

The Superficial / December 16, 2010

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!”
