We’re not sure this counts as a comeback, but maybe it’s a step in some sort of direction (we hope the right one). Britney Spears was spotted out on the town having dinner with actor/loud-mouth drunk Mel Gibson. Seriously. The pair hit up the Romanov Russian Restaurant and Lounge in Studio City, and sources say Mel and his fam has befriended the troubled singer and that he’s been offering her advice based on his own mishaps. Someone on the inside reveals that, “He understands what she’s going through. And he certainly has advice on how to not let it destroy your life.” We can only imagine…
Mel: Britney, trust me. Your career isn’t ruined just because you made a fool of yourself in public. I mean, I got hammered and went nuts and Apocalypto was still an enormous hit. Bigger than Spider-Man.
Mel: It was a movie I made about the decline of Mayan civilization. It was profound, to say the least. Epic. It was nominated for an Oscar for Sound Mixing – hellooooo!
Brit: Well, I really liked The Man Without a Face. I thought you might look like that in person. I was kinda scared to meet you.
Mel: We should really get the check. C’mon sugar t*ts.
