Mel Gibson Helps Formerly Conjoined Guatemalan Twins Celebrate 10th Birthday (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Aug 8th 2011 2:15PM
Mel Gibson celebrates the 10th birthday of Guatemalan formerly conjoined twins on 'The Early Show'Mel Gibson has done a lot of questionable things in the last few years, but he's also done some good. In 2002, Guatemalan conjoined twins Maria de Jesus and Maria Teresa went through a 23-hour surgery at UCLA to be separated. 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) reported that Gibson and the Mending Kids organization partnered to finance the kids' surgery, and didn't release the information of Gibson's involvement publicly.

Gibson has reportedly remained close with the twins in the intervening years, and went to their 10th birthday party recently. "You only have to talk to that little girl to realize that she has this hunger for life and this enthusiasm and this joy," said Gibson.

Mel Gibson is Jimmy Kimmel, but not vice versa

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 29th 2010 10:00AM
Sure when it comes to Hollywood's leading leading man and late night's smarmy frat boy, the two can't hold a candle to each other. But when Mel Gibson takes on the Jimmy Kimmel character, he transforms himself into a wild-eyed monster with a ravenous appetite for anything filling and an unrestrained consumer of mindless amusements, basic human urges and monkeys.

Gibson unveiled his portrayal of the ABC late night host in a new film coming soon to a theater near you. I'm hoping that Gary Sinise will be cast as Kimmel's wide eyebrowed sidekick, Adam Carolla.

Mel Gibson Debuts Trailer for Jimmy Kimmel Biopic (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 28th 2010 10:30AM
On last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Mel Gibson debuted the trailer for a faux Jimmy Kimmel biopic starring himself, in which he depicted the talk show host as a domineering boss and a glutton who gorges on everything from a massive bowl of ice cream to a container of lard.

While wearing a fat suit and a dark wig, Gibson portrayed a pants-less Kimmel who barked orders at his staff and even demanded to harpoon an endangered whale on his show.

Mel Gibson on Boston's Love of Profanity (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 27th 2010 12:00PM
Mel Gibson dropped by 'The Jay Leno Show' to promote his new movie 'Edge of Darkness,' in which he plays a cop seeking revenge for the murder of his daughter, and he talked about a run-in with a bachelorette party while filming the movie in Boston.

"I bumped into a drunken bachelorette party ... I was just walking back to my hotel ... and they grabbed me on the street," Gibson said, noting how they exclaimed their surprise with profanity in typical Boston fashion. "Demure young ladies, but mouths like sailors."

Mel Gibson Discusses the Price of Fame and Tiger Woods (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Jan 25th 2010 4:30PM
In an interview with Cameron Mathison on 'Good Morning America,' actor Mel Gibson talked about the price of fame and defended embattled pro golfer Tiger Woods.

According to Gibson, he first realized that fame had changed his life forever when he was a young actor in his 20s and a group of fans refused to stop following him. "I said, 'Hey, stop following me around.' And they went, 'No,'" Gibson said. "And I knew that I'd lost something. I knew that I had lost personal anonymity."

How did Ricky Gervais do as Golden Globes host?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 18th 2010 7:00AM
Golden Globes 2010, Ricky GervaisWhen I talked with Ricky Gervais a few weeks ago, he said his game plan as host of the Golden Globes was to keep things rolling and have fun with it. He also said comedians are "meant to push the barriers a little bit and see what happens."

He definitely pushed a few barriers on the Golden Globes last night, taking potshots at Paul McCartney's marital troubles, Kiefer Sutherland's anger management issues, and Angelina Jolie's penchant for adopting children from Third World countries (too much, given the dire crisis in Haiti?)

Even Mel Gibson's alcohol troubles came up. Gervais appeared on stage drinking a beer as he introduced his next presenter. "Don't get me wrong," he said. "I like a drink as much as the next man, unless the next man is ... Mel Gibson."

Overall, Gervais' hosting skills fell a little flat for me. Next year, I suggest that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association consider Robert Downey Jr. as host of the Golden Globes. His Best Actor speech for Sherlock Holmes was inspired, funny and charming.

How do you think Ricky Gervais did as host?

The Jay Leno Show: Drew Barrymore

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 19th 2009 12:24AM
Drew BarrymoreYesterday, Leno mocked "Cash for Clunkers" by mocking up a "Cash for Flunkers" video. Tonight he tapped the same well with a "Cash for Chunkers" joke. I guess that's common in the late night arena, but I've never been a fan of using the same exact set-up on different nights to get a different joke. Unless you acknowledge how weak it is when you do it.

Tonight's correspondent was The Hangover's Rachael Harris, who came on to show us the lost art of bartering in this tough economic times. Like most of the other correspondent segments, it had some funny moments, but it just seemed to go on forever.

Celebrities + drunk driving = news?

by Paul Goebel, posted Feb 20th 2007 10:29AM

Bearded Mel GibsonThis week Ray Liotta was arrested for drinking and driving. With so many stars getting taken in for DWI's it makes you think that maybe Hollywood is suffering from a severe alcohol problem. But upon closer look, it's clear that folks like Ray Liotta, Nicole Richie and Mel Gibson enjoy paraphrasing the popular bumper sticker... They get drunk, they drive, their expensive lawyers and publicists get them off the hook and do damage control...no problem!

Family Guy: Prick Up Your Ears

by Brett Love, posted Nov 20th 2006 8:32AM
Family Guy, Stewie and Brian(S05E06) The story for this week's episode was more involved, which is a good thing. A little plot goes a long way. When the plot gets too thin everything rides on the gags, and it is hard to pull off an episode with just gags. While the sex-ed story has been told many times, I liked the Family Guy take on it.

It gave them a good reason to bring out slutty Lois, and slutty Lois is usually pretty funny, like when she was trying to explain the wonders of sex to Meg. Or showing up for role-playing night dressed as Grimace? Good stuff.

Chevy Chase to guest star on Law & Order

by Michael Canfield, posted Sep 26th 2006 7:36PM
Chevy ChaseChevy Chase has started shooting an episode of Law & Order in which he plays a celebrity who is stopped for drunk driving and whose "religious prejudice" comes out -- okay, he's playing Mel Gibson. Since this is Law & Order and not, say, Reno 911!, Chevy's fictional character will also be found with blood on him, making for a major-crimes angle.

Count on Jack McCoy and the rest of the gang to have this one neatly sorted within forty-three minutes as usual. Win or lose, next week they'll be on to another story distilled from some other headline. One episode, one case, the end.

The Daily Show: August 1, 2006

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 2nd 2006 2:42PM
The Daily ShowBefore undergoing surgery, Cuban leader Fidel Castro ceded power to his half-brother Raul. Bureau Chief de Havana Rob Corddry joined in to elaborate. The "Hollaaaaaah!" thing made me laugh because I know I've had occasions when I've accidentally read "Hola" that way. And although the "ceremonial passing of the beard" thing was great, Jon being caught off guard by Rob's sexiness was the best part. Mild flirtation between the TDS boys makes me happy (there really hasn't been enough of it since Stephen Colbert left).
