Mel Gibson is sensitive to the Jews

Winona Ryder recalled a time back in the 90’s when Mel Gibson launched a racial slur at her and she didn’t even realize it.

15 years ago at a big, fancy Hollywood party, Mel went up to Winona and her gay friend. After a “horrible gay joke,” it somehow came up that Winona was Jewish. That’s when Mel made a comment about “oven dodgers.” Winona didn’t understand what it meant until later.

“I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!”

Those shoplifting charges didn’t help her credibility but luckily she remembers this completely random event 15 years later. Coincidentally, during the promotional tour and Oscar push for Black Swan which she has a part in. Funny how things work out.
