Gibson Accepts Hollywood Snubs

MEL GIBSON accepts he may struggle to find work after his alcohol-fuelled anti-Semitic rant in July (06) sparked outrage across the globe. In an interview with US newswoman DIANE SAWYER, the actor admitted his "vitriolic and harmful words" following his arrest for drink driving were bound to cause offence. The 50-year-old star has made few public appearances since the incident in Malibu, California, where he told his arresting officer, "The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." But, after issuing a public apology for the tirade, Gibson is unsure what else he can do to placate sections of the movie industry. He says, "I feel sad because they've obviously been hurt and frightened and offended enough to feel that they have to do that (boycott him). "It's their choice. There's nothing I can do about that." In the interview, to air on US breakfast show GOOD MORNING AMERICA on Thursday (12OCT06) and Friday (13OCT06), Gibson revealed he plans to continue making movies: "All you can do is take another step, keep breathing."
