GIVE MEL AND RUS­SELL A BREAK

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Soap -

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.’’
