Mel Gibson has made a few high profile blunders during his career, but the audio recording that was recently released where he goes into a tirade against his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva shows a darker side of Gibson who is allegedly heard threatening Grigorieva and making racial slurs.
However, one has to keep in mind that Hollywood loves a comeback – regardless of the circumstances. Case in point is Alec Baldwin. Three years ago a recording of a voicemail Baldwin left for his young daughter was released, in which Baldwin verbally assaults his child, calling her a “pig” among other things. Flash forward a few years and Baldwin is an Emmy winner for his role on 30 Rock, co-starred in a feature film opposite Meryl Streep, and co-hosted the Academy Awards last year.
