The âBraveheartâ actor let out a profanity-filled rant against screenwriter Joe Eszterhas that was recorded in secret and recently released to the media stream.
âWhen you get me here and tape me, you let me know up front,â Gibson told the talk show host.
The two had a disagreement on a new project for the 56-year-old actor based on Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee and, as a result of the explicit rant, Eszterhas fired back with a 9-page letter addressed to Gibson.
"If he put half as much time and effort and creativity and imagination into a screenplay, which he was supposed to write, as he did into that letter, we wouldn't be having this conversation,â he joked.
This isnât the first time that Melâs expressed his anger, recalling the audio recording in 2010 directed at his ex, Oksana Grigorieva, along with his 2006 DWI arrest during which he expressed his blame towards Jews for âall the wars in the world.â
"Maybe you don't know this about me, but I've got a little bit of a temper,â he added.
The âWhat Women Wantâ actor also made a plug for his new film, âGet the Gringo,â set to release on DirecTV and avoiding the theaters.
âItâs different because itâs on a small window,â he said. âI think itâs the way of the future.â
The film is set in Mexico and follows the story of Gibsonâs character as heâs locked in prison and learns to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy. It will be available on May 1.
