LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Winona Ryder claims Mel Gibson’s rants date back to the mid ‘90s.
In a new interview with GQ, the actress claimed she heard the actor use homophobic and anti-semitic remarks in 1995.
” …fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk,” the 39-year-old “Black Swan” actress claimed in an interview with GQ. “I was with my friend, who’s gay. [Gibson] made a really horrible gay joke.”
Ryder also told the mag that the headline-making actor made insensitive remarks about her religion.
” …somehow it came up that I was Jewish,” Ryder went on to claim. “He said something about ‘oven dodgers,’ but I didn’t get it. I’d never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, ‘He’s anti-Semitic and he’s homophobic.’ No one believed me!” A rep for Gibson had no comment when contacted by Access Hollywood.
