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…

Winona Ryder's Friendship With Keanu Reeves Started When He Refused To Do This On a Movie Set

Winona Ryder is opening up about how her friendship with Keanu Reeves first started and it’s all because he refused to do something on the Dracula set.

During her eye-opening interview with The Sunday Times, the 48-year-old actress recalled that Keanu defied director Francis Ford Coppola‘s instructions on the set of Dracula to yell profanities at her.

“To put it in context I’m supposed to be crying,” Winona recalled. “Literally, Richard E. Grant, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu [Reeves]…Francis was trying to get all of them to yell things that would make me cry.”

Francis apparently was also yelling “you whore!” at her off camera, as well.

She added that “Keanu wouldn’t, Anthony wouldn’t. It just didn’t work. I was, like, really? It kind of did the opposite.”

While she and Francis are good today, Winona revealed that the movie was still horrible.

“It got the worst reviews,” she said. “That movie, for some reason, every reviewer was like, ‘This is the worst movie in the world,’ and it was really rough.”

Something else happened on the set of Dracula with Winona and Keanu, too. See what it is here…

Mel Gibson's Rep Claims Winona Ryder Is 'Lying' About Anti-Semitic Statements

Mel Gibson‘s representative is slamming Winona Ryder‘s claim that he made anti-semitic and homophobic statements towards her and a friend at a party years ago.

“This is 100% untrue,” Mel‘s rep told TooFab. “She lied about it over a decade ago, when she talked to the press, and she’s lying about it now. Also, she lied about him trying to apologize to her back then. He did reach out to her, many years ago, to confront her about her lies and she refused to address it with him.”

Winona first made these claims in an article written back in 2010. You can see exactly what Winona said that Mel said during the party right here.

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.
