Winona Ryder Reacts To Mel Gibson's Claims That She Told Lies About His Hateful Comments Towards Her

Winona Ryder is speaking out again after Mel Gibson has denied saying derogatory remarks towards her and a friend at a party many years ago.

In her interview with The Sunday Times, the 48-year-old actress revealed that Mel had made anti-Semitic comments towards her and homophobic ones to a friend of hers, makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin.

“We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends,” she recalled. “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?’”

Mel then said that Winona was lying about his remarks.

“This is 100% untrue. She lied about it over a decade ago, when she talked to the press, and she’s lying about it now,” his reps shared to press.

After hearing his reaction to the accusations, Winona is sticking by her story.

“I believe in redemption and forgiveness and hope that Mr. Gibson has found a healthy way to deal with his demons, but I am not one of them,” Winona shared with the NY Post. “Around 1996, my friend Kevyn Aucoin and I were on the receiving end of his hateful words. It is a painful and vivid memory for me.”

She added that “only by accepting responsibility for our behavior in this life, can we make amends and truly respect each other, and I wish him well on this lifelong journey.”

In the same feature, Winona also opened up about how her lifelong friendship with Keanu Reeves first started. Learn more here…
