Is anger-challenged actor Mel Gibson gearing up for a mammoth mea culpa? Apparently so.
Sources tell PopEater that Gibson is currently considering his options and realises that the longer he keeps schtum, the more public opinion of him nosedives.
“Since the second the tapes were released, every media outlet [including PopEater] has been contacting Mel’s people asking for an interview,” a source tells the website.
“Now, after months of silence, Mel has finally realised if he doesn’t say something really soon it might be too late. The days of burying his head in the sand hoping this whole ugly mess goes away are over.”
So who’d want to bend Mel’s ear about those legendary tanty tapes and his fall from grace? He can take his pick.
Oprah, Letterman, the Today show and The View are some of the obvious candidates, and Matt Lauer being the first choice, says the source.
“Mel did an interview with Diane Sawyer after his anti-Semitic remarks several years ago, and that didn’t go so well for him.”
The source adds: “Now, with the stakes even higher, everyone thinks it would be better for a man to sit opposite another man to discuss everything that has been going on lately. I suppose the first choice would be Matt Lauer. It’s certainly not going to be Oprah after she almost got Oksana to tell all.”
Even if Mel imparts with a “sorry”, are you prepared to forgive him?
