Five seconds inside Mel Gibson’s brain

· long story short

According this mini-bit from MSNBC, Mel Gibson was near-suicidal right up to the point he started making the Passion. Also, he’s pretty sure his wife, a very religious Episcopalian who he says is a saint and a much better human being than him, will unfortunately be spending eternity in hell.
No disrespect meant to Mel, or to other folks who think his wife is going to hell. But the more I learn about him, the more he sounds like he really is that zany cop-with-nothing-to-lose from Lethal Weapon. And here I thought he was just a great actor.
