Actor Mel Gibson, who has lately been involved in a number of controversial incidents, does not understand why he needs to seek an apology from his fellow colleagues in Hollywood.
The 56-year-old was caught in an expletive and racist tirade against his child’s mother, Oksana Grigorieva, in audio tapes released to the public, reported Contactmusic.
He was also caught on tape abusing Maccabees screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, and last month his step-mother filed for a restraining order against the actor citing he hit her.
“They have to forget. I don’t even think they’re vindictive. I don’t think they think there’s reason to forgive. And forgive what to begin with? What are they asking for? It’s almost like can you please forgive me for what? What did I do, really? It is kind of ridiculous,” he said.
Gibson said that he hasn’t done much wrong for the industry to judge him in the first place. “It’s kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what needs to be forgiven and I don’t consider that anything does because I didn't hurt anyone.”
“But you know, hey that’s life. It ain’t easy and it’s not fair. You’ve just got to slip the old water off the back and move on,”he added.
