GIVE MEL AND RUSSELL A BREAK
THAAO Penghlis thinks the media should give fellow ex-pats Mel Gibson and Russell Crowe a break.
Gibson was lambasted for the anti-Semitic remarks he allegedly made when he was drunk two years ago, and Crowe copped it for chucking a phone in a hotel a year earlier.
‘‘I think Mel Gibson and Russell Crowe are terrific actors who make good movies,’’ he says.
‘‘So he (Gibson) went to the pub and got drunk and said some silly things, so what?
‘‘People get drunk all the time.’’
