Mavericks!

Noted gay rights activist Jodie Foster has come to the defense of her troubled Maverick co-star and friend Mel Gibson in the pages of the Los Angeles Times. She tells the Los Angeles Times that she doubts claims that Gibson is prejudiced against Jews. What, you think it’s coincidence that all wars happen to have a jew standing nearby?

She says, "Is he an anti-Semite? Absolutely not, but it's no secret that he has always fought a terrible battle with alcoholism." Nothing proves one’s open-mindednes than a bottle of tequila after all.

Insisting that her Maverick co-star will recover from the scandal, Foster adds, "(He was) a shining example of how low you can go when you are young and still pull yourself up. Foster's credentials on getting low are quite impeccable.

"He took his recovery very seriously, which is why I know he is strong enough to get through this now." Thanks to other big stars like myself we hope to cover up this unfortunate glimpse into his true self and get back to the important things in Hollywood, $$$$$$$.

Like her words hold much weight! That woman is so deeply closeted it isn't even funny. Does anyone actually think she's straight? And why on earth would she be defending a man who is well-known for his homophobia? Hypocrite.

She makes me sick! She's got internalized homophobia and sticks up for one of the biggest homophobes in Hollywood.

Vile.

Catholic. Conservative. Anti-Semite. Geez, no wonder he's an alcoholic. Just like my ex (except replace anti-semite w/ internalized homophobia). There's no getting better until you can work through the issues that make you want to drink in the first place.

As for Jodie, I can't believe she hasn't come out yet.

I agree with everyone. Why does she need to defend him? I would have felt better if she'd just kept her mouth shut.
