Movie Mogul Weinstein 'Forgives' Gibson

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."
