Mel Gibson is a raging sociopath who hates women and Jews, so if Shia LaBeouf should take advice from anyone, it’s obviously Mel Gibson.
“When I see someone like Shia LaBeouf with the bag on his head and stuff, my heart goes out to the poor guy. Because I think he’s suffering in some way,” said the Oscar winner, referring to the LaBeouf’s bizarre red carpet appearance at the February premiere of his film “Nymphomaniac. “Or why (else) would he do that?” he continued. “People are in line to sort of point the finger at him and say that he’s this, that, or the other. It’s easy to judge. But I’m sure he’s going through some kind of personal, very painful, cathartic thing that he has to exorcise and get out there. And he’ll probably play it out and come back…He’ll be all right. I actually like the kid. I think he’s good.” Gibson, 58, also talked about the pitfalls of fame, which he knows about first-hand. “You’re a target. And you have to be really adept at tap dancing and dodging the bullets. And sometimes you get hit.”
Not sure if Mel realizes if Shia is half Jewish or not, but maybe he does. Maybe Mel is just manipulating him so Shia will come over to his house. Then Mel will tell him he needs a tattoo to start the next chapter of his life and to put his trouble past behind him. Maybe he’ll suggest the date as the tattoo. Maybe somewhere on the wrist area. Then maybe they’ll take a trip to Home Depot to casually look at ovens.
