Joe Ezsterhas Warns Mel Gibson 'Don't Call Me A Liar'
In an interview with The Wrap's Sharon Waxman, Ezsterhas also says "Naomi (Ezsterhas' wife) also witnessed things he said about killing Oksana (Gibson's former wife) and his constant anti-Semitic remarks. He should be very careful." Gibson has been accused of anti-Semitic behaviour before and many were confused by his motives for working on the movie. According to Ezsterhaus, Gibson wanted to use the movie to "convert the Jews to Christianity." Answering the accusations that he only wrote his letter out of bitterness, after his script was rejected, Ezsterhas told The Wrap "In an interview I did with the New York Times on Feb 5, before the script delivered, (I) said that if I saw anti-Semitism creep into the script, I'd take my name off the project."
Ezsterhas goes so far as to say, in the interview, that Gibson is "unstable. He's out of control. He's often irrational. And he needs medication. He needs help." He concluded the interview by saying "I don't want to be at war with him. I live very quietly in Cleveland with a wonderful family. I hope the outcomes are all positive. I hope that no one gets hurt. But I don't have any idea where it's going to come out."
