You may or may not have heard, but Mel Gibson hasn’t exactly had an easy time of it this year, with a certain phone call to a certain ex-wife being “leaked” to the tabloid press and presto, all his dirty laundries are suddenly in the public domain. Oh come on, tell me you’ve never left a rambling, profanity-laced message on your ex’s answering machine. Liar!
Anyways, guess what? According to a new poll by “60 Minutes” and Vanity Fair, the majority of Americans aren’t the least bit deterred by Gibson’s personal “issues”, and would still see his movies if he continued to make them. Go figure.
Asked if they were less likely to buy a ticket for a Gibson movie after hearing the tapes, 76% of Americans — including 80% of men and 72% of women — picked “No, no effect,” in the poll by magazine Vanity Fair and television news
And it’s not like Mel Gibson has come out and done the whole apology tour yet, and according to this, he doesn’t have to.
Somewhere, Lindsay Lohan is wondering, “Where’s my love, America?” (And you didn’t think I could find a perfectly logical reason to post a nice picture of Lindsay Lohan here, did you? Well you were wrong!)
