Jewish movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is willing to forgive Mel Gibson - but only on the condition he no longer harbours any racist beliefs.
Gibson insulted the Jewish community last year (06) after making a drunken anti-Semitic outburst. However, Weinstein admits he would be prepared to work with the actor-turned-director in future if he has changed his ways.
He says, "I know Mel, and he's basically a good guy. The Passion Of The Christ is very tough on Jews, and I didn't hold back from telling him so - but he says I'm wrong about that.
"Before producing a film for Mel, I would have a very serious discussion with him, so that I could be absolutely certain that he has changed. If someone is against blacks, Jews or Arabs, even if their hands were filled with gold, I would, in principle, never work with them."
