Mel Gibson has been relatively quiet since screenwriter Joe Eszterhas accused him of being anti-Semitic and released tapes of the star raging and screaming profanities. But Gibson is finally speaking out ... and with some humor.
On Friday, the actor appeared on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and brought up all the drama with the "Maccabees" scribe. "You know, I love coming to 'The Tonight Show' because when I get here and you tape me, you let me know you're going to do that up front!" Gibson joked.
The actor admitted that he had been "peeved" at Eszterhas over the delay of the script and had indeed yelled at the writer.
"Was it just you swearing at the guy?" Leno asked in regards to the secretly taped tirade.
"Yeah, pretty much!" Gibson said. "You know, maybe you don't know this about me, but I've got a little bit of a temper."
