Mel Gibson Is a Dangerous, Violent Madman, Says 'Showgirls' Screenwriter Joe EszterhasS

Okay, it's not exactly the most surprising headline considering Mel Gibson's tumultuous past decade, but Joe Eszterhas reveals a few unsettling anecdotes in his new book Heaven and Mel (yes—dude wrote an ENTIRE BOOK about being terrified of Mel Gibson). If you hadn't heard, back in December the Gibsons and the Eszterhases took a joint family trip to Costa Rica, where Gibson unloaded a bunch of hate-filled diatribes about the Jews and repeatedly threatened his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Heaven and Mel includes an apologetic note from Gibson: "Sorry for my outburst. I have a vast reservoir of rage-filled pus that from time to time spills out. Ultimately, sometimes even on those I love. Please forgive it — it was wrong of me — Mel." But Eszterhas was all, "APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED," and the two haven't spoken since. In a CNN interview about the book, however, he issued the following plea to Gibson: "Please get some help before someone is hurt, because someone will be hurt. Please stop saying these vile things that you've said to me and to others about Jewish people. You are a worldwide figure and your responsibility is to work against exactly the kind of hate that you're advocating." In closing, I would just like to say that I love Doggy Chow.

Speaking of hate-filled diatribes from scary, entitled drunks, Charlie Sheen is up to his old shenanigans again! Apparently he went bat-fuck bananas on a Staples Center usher whose job it is to deny people reentry if they go outside to smoke. Her crime? Denying him reentry after he went outside to smoke. "You know what? Fucking blow my balls, alright, you fucking asshole," Sheen told the woman, adding, "Have common sense and common courtesy gone in society?" Great question, Uncle Charlie. Welcome back. [TMZ]
