Rydin' Dirty
Winona Ryder Said She Called It On Mel Gibson’s Crazyness

by Cas Ruffin on Dec 16th, 2010

Winona Ryder recently admitted in the interview that she knew Mel Gibson was crazy all along. She discovered it 15 years ago while at some Hollywood party, but there was no Web 2.0 to tell anyone. If people remembered me for my kleptomania, I would do the same thing as Winona.

I think it’s funny that we still connect her to this incident. It happened over 9 years ago, and for all we know, it was a publicity stunt that worked. She still gets coveted roles in some very big movies. In that sense, it makes me feel sorry for her and very jealous of her at the same time. Whereas Mel Gibson couldn’t save his career even if they injected its heart with adrenaline.

In her new GQ profile, Winona Ryder is understandably reluctant to discuss her most famous misdeed, the 2001 shoplifting incident that made her persona non grata in Hollywood. However, she will happily discuss the misdeeds of film pariah Mel Gibson instead: “I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties,” she says. “And he was really drunk. I was with my friend, who’s gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!” [Vulture]

Can we all agree that Hollywood is just a whole town of crazies?
