WATCH: Mel Gibson Jokes About Rant on Tonight Show: “I’ve Got a Temper”



Mel Gibson appeared on Friday’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and addressed his wild (and very public) feud with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas.


The ugly fight over Eszterhas’ script for a potential The Maccabees led Eszterhas to secretly tape and then release audio of Gibson ranting — in his Costa Rica home — about both the writer and estranged baby mama Oksana Grigorieva.

“Maybe you don’t know this about me: I’ve got a little bit of a temper,” Gibson joked to Leno.

Gibson says that Eszterhas is “just trying to shake me down.”

“I shall pray for him,” remarked the controversial actor-director, who says that all of his recent issues have felt like being in a bad B-movie.

Given everything that’s gone down with Gibson over the past couple years, what do you think of his explanation here?
