Upon seeing damning footage of football star Ray Rice attacking his then-fiancee, Janay Rice, fans have begun a discussion about domestic violence. But he’s not the first notable celebrity to come under fire for scary assaults or erratic episodes. Read more…
The Expendables crew is back for another installment of mercenary gun-toting. With stars like Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the film’s cast sports an average age of 57, proving that age ain’t nothing but a number when it comes to kicking butt. Read more…
We’ve all had our rough patches. We don’t know a single person who hasn’t had a minor meltdown, a hissy fit, or even a mild psychotic break (everyone has That Cousin). But when A-list celebrities freak-out, they’re just so extra with it. They take it to a whole new level, make it theatrical. If it’s a really good meltdown, it could even look like performance art.

The new, eerie Gone Girl trailer and movie posters are released, Marvel reveals big news about Captain America and does Mel Gibson regret his anti-Semitic remarks?
If you thought you were jealous of the stars before, man oh man are you going to be jealous of the stars now. Did you know Eddie Murphy and Mel Gibson are the proud owners of luxurious islands? Yeah, it’s true. You’re probably thinking… wait a minute, did these guys become kings or conquerers in the past few years and I totally missed it? No, definitely not. They’re just extremely wealthy dudes who are so eager for ultimate privacy that they’re willing to dish out millions to get it. But the fun doesn’t stop with these two, oh no no. Read more…
It’s that time of the week again. Time to choose who is having the Best Week Ever! Come Friday (that’s tomorrow!) you’ll be sitting down to watch the premiere of Best Week Ever, waiting anxiously for the BIG REVEAL. But now’s your chance to vote on who is having the Best Week Ever, and who knows, maybe you’re choice will take the top prize and all of the glory that goes with.
To help sway your votes, we had a couple of the new Best Week Ever cast members weigh in. Here are your options.
You might need to cup your hands over your face while you read Mel Gibson‘s new interview on ComingSoon, lest your eyeballs roll out onto your desk and skitter under the futon. Hmm…but how will you see the words with your hands over your eyes? Maybe put a bowl of cold milk on your keyboard just in case? Regardless of how you prepare for it, get ready to pop them peepers at Gibson’s surprisingly candid answers:
- There’s a great reason that Mel went on that screaming tangent in front of screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and his family. “Okay, so a guy gets paid to write a screenplay and doesn’t turn anything in for 14 months. That’s a serious problem. Not even an outline, so I lost my nutter with him,” Mel explains.
- That Maccabees movie he wants to make is happening whether we want it to or not: “I DO want to make it and I will make it. And that’ll be a great film.”
- After all this, Mel still isn’t sure what he has to apologize for. “No it’s not. They have to forget,” he replied when asked if Hollywood is “ultimately a forgiving town.” “I don’t even think they’re vindictive. I don’t think they think there’s reason to forgive. And forgive what to begin with? What are they asking for? It’s almost like can you please forgive me for what? What did I do, really? It is kind of ridiculous.” Kind of, Mel!
Not that we don’t agree with some things Gibson has to say. “It’s really bad,” Gibson said of Eszterhas’s Maccabees screenplay, complete with “heinous, bad, shonky, D-grade dialogue.” Eszterhas did write Showgirls, after all.

It looks like two celebs, Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson, who have continued to amuse us (and simultaneously terrify us) with their ridiculous public outbursts and angry rants may be teaming up together. No, this is not to plot a fight against anyone who tries to take a picture of these stars or delay their next epic film. (Though a showdown that involves both of these Hollywood tyrants could be pretty entertaining). Rather, Baldwin told Vanity Fair that he recently invited Gibson to be a guest on his biweekly WNYC podcast called “Here’s the Thing.” Baldwin claims that he wants Gibson on his podscast due to his success in the film industry, not because of his antics broadcasted in the media, “And the only thing I want to ask you about the travails in your life is: What did you learn?” Uh-huh.
In anticipation of the possible podcast, we have put together a list of some differences and similarities between these two Hollywood brawlers. They seem to share more than just their prominent acting careers. Check it out, and see if you can guess who’s who:
Different: One fantasizes about killing Harvey Levin, founder of TMZ.
Similar: Both have been caught on tape ranting angrily to a family member.
Different: One probably doesn’t believe that the Holocaust happened.
We wish we could say we were surprised to hear that Mel Gibson‘s stepmother has filed for a restraining order against him, but between the anti-Semitism, the misogyny and all that talk about the rose garden, well, we’re sadly able to take it in stride. It’s not like Marion Cotillard‘s or Tom Hanks‘ stepmothers are getting a restraining order against them, is all we’re saying. Nobody’s filing a restraining order against Betty White.
According to TMZ, 78-year-old Teddy Joye Hicks Gibson claims that the actor directed numerous outbursts at her over the past two years regarding her disagreement with “controversial medical treatments” Mel and his sister Maura want for their father Hutter Gibson. Teddy says that when she objected to her husband receiving the treatments, “Mel began yelling and saying, ‘f— this and f— that’ while leveling other extremely offensive language at me,” warning her “not to f— with [Hutton's] treatments in any way.” Hmmm, that sure sounds like Mel. She also claims Gibson pressured Hutter into divorcing her and is attempting to get her kicked out of her home. Instead of giving her a temporary restraining order, a judge set a hearing for next month. Maybe Mel and Teddy will be able to work things out on their own by then, but … that’s not really his M.O. We’re always ready to be pleasantly surprised, though!

Wow, we never thought we’d be typing the words “Mel Gibson” and “machete” in the same sentence…and have it be good news! Things are really looking up! The Hollywood Reporter confirmed today that Mel Gibson is “in talks” for a role in Robert Rodriguez‘s grindhouse sequel Machete Kills, starring Danny Trejo; the director is also hoping to snag Michelle Williams and Jessica Alba as well. Personally, we’re just impressed that Mel’s recent unsettling recorded rant, released by screenwriter Joe Eszterhas almost two weeks ago, hasn’t ruined his chances of landing the role. Or maybe his PR people just wanted to reassure us that someone is still willing to actually talk to Mel? Either way, we think Gibson should take the part and run!
Kills would ostensibly Mel’s first theatrical release since 2011′s The Beaver; his recently action flick Get The Gringo went straight to video this spring, his other rumored film with Kiefer Sutherland has yet to materialize and he famously missed out on a role in The Hangover Part II due to all that…unpleasantness that was going on at the time. We have a feeling this is to happen for Gibson; Rodriguez has a history of being kind to actors struggling to redeem themselves. The original 2010 Machete movie co-starred none other than (you guessed it) Lindsay Lohan.
