Mel Gibson Confronted a Papz by Filming Him Back

Mel Gibson

A footage of the actor smiling as he knocks on the paparazo's car window has been released, revealing as well Gibson 'interviewing' the snapper.

Embattled Mel Gibson had an odd encounter with the paparazzi in Los Angeles on Monday, September 13, as he attempted to film a snapper in the back of a car on his camera phone. A smiling Gibson stepped out of his Mercedes after spotting a paparazzo on his tail, and walked back up the street to confront the photographer filming all the way.

But he wasn't expecting the barrage of pertinent questions, which was hurled at him as the two men filmed each other. In the footage, which debuted on new U.S. show Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday, the actor/director asked the snapper to wind his window down so he could get a good shot of him on his phone, and asked, "What's the matter, got nothing better to do?"

The photographer obliged and decided to use the opportunity to quiz Gibson about his summer legal woes with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who accused the "Braveheart" star of lashing out at her in a fight. The snapper asked, "I just wondered if you really hit Oksana," and then added, "Do you think you'll ever make a movie in Hollywood again?"

The paparazzo continued, calling out Gibson for remarks he has allegedly made against Jews, blacks, Latinos and homosexuals, adding, "Do you ever think you'll ever get anybody of any race or any creed or sexual orientation ever to work for you for free from all the different colleges you asked for free interns from?"

The smile never slipped from cool Gibson's face as he fixed his camera phone on the snapper, and the actor responded by stating, "You got a lot of dialogue, don't you." The snapper asked, "Do you have anything to say for yourself?", prompting Gibson to retort, "Not to you, I just wanted to film you... Thanks for following us around."

And when the snapper revealed he was a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild, the Aussie actor cracked, "Wanna job? I guess you need one." Before walking away, the movie star added one final salvo, asking, "What's it like sniffing other people's laundry?"

But the snapper got the last word in, shouting after Gibson, "Hey, do you think I can have my money back for all the tickets I had to pay for those movies? I'm filing a class action lawsuit on behalf of the whole world."

    these werent paparazzis these were two retards with a camara trying to bait mel into a cheap fight, something you would expect in grade school. What he is going through is wrong. I'd happily go see any of his movies he is a fine actor.... oh by the way IM JEWISH. Thats how little I care about something he said in the heat of the moment

    Im glad that the majority of people are still on Gibsons side or at least willing to forgive him even though the media just wants to tear him down. I was really hoping Mel would punch him in the face!

    !!good for Mel!!! Weeks ago when he has his wreck, less than an hour before, they had swirved infront of him filming him and had the nerve to post the tape on line. That is the same kind of actions that killed Princes Diana! I'm glad Mel is fighting back! The comment in this video by one of the perps is "stay still, we're gonna get rich" they have no class!

    Oh I just heard the "don't move we're gonna be rich" comment hahahaha. Stupid question about Mel working with everyone - Jodie Foster is gay, the Apocalypto actors are from minority groups and unknown yet Mel hired them. The paps were just firing cheap shots.

    Good for Mel! It was funny. Paparazzis can be dangerous. After all the stunts they've done they should be the last ones to be self-righteous.
