Winona: Mel Gibson Is a Homophobe


The wrath of Mel Gibson's derogatory remarks is nothing new to actress Winona Ryder.

"Fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties. And he was really drunk," Ryder, 39, said in GQ. "I was with my friend, who's gay. [Gibson] made a really horrible gay joke."

Ryder, who was nominated for two Screen Actors Guild awards Thursday morning, also said she heard him make an offensive joke about her Jewish heritage.

"Somehow it came up that I was Jewish," Ryder says. "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."
