In his first interview since those infamous tapes leaked online, Mel Gibson finally opened up about those angry messages he left on Oksana Grigorieva’s voice mail. Gibson admits that it was a horrible situation and fully regrets his actions that could have cost him jail time.
He tells Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood during his interview, “That was one terribly awful moment in time” and that he regrets what he said. He said he was angry with himself and emphasizes that “you have to put it all in the proper context of being in an irrationally heated discussion at the height of a breakdown.”
He was trying to get out of a really unhealthy relationship and believes that one moment represents how he’s treated others in his entire life. He wasn’t bothered that only a few friends stood up for him during the breakdown and he found out who his true friends really are.
