Winona Ryder Accuses Mel Gibson of Making Anti-Semitic & Homophobic Statements

UPDATE: Mel has released an explosive statement in response to Winona’s allegations!

Winona Ryder is revealing a comment that Mel Gibson reportedly made to her about being Jewish.

“We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends, and Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we’re all talking and he said to my friend, who’s gay, ‘Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?’ And then something came up about Jews, and he said, ‘You’re not an oven dodger, are you?’” Winona relayed to The Times.

“There are times when people have said, ‘Wait, you’re Jewish? But you’re so pretty,’” she added. “There was a movie that I was up for a long time ago, it was a period piece, and the studio head, who was Jewish, said I looked ‘too Jewish’ to be in a blue-blooded family.”

Apparently, Mel “tried” to apologize at a later date. Winona originally relayed this story back in a 2010 issue of GQ.

Winona recently defended one of her famous exes who is entangled in a legal battle.
