Mel Gibson On Rant At Maccabees' Writer: 'I've Got A Little Bit Of A Temper'

Mel Gibson commented for the first time about his rant at Maccabees' screenwriter Joe Eszterhas in an appearance on the 'Tonight Show with Jay Leno' on Friday night.

"Maybe you don't know this about me, but I've got a little bit of a temper," Gibson quipped.

Eszterhas taped the profanity-filled rant unbeknownst to Gibson while they were together in the actor's Costa Rica home.

"Why don't I have a first draft of The Maccabees? What the f--k have you been doing?," he yelled in the rant after the writer failed to deliver the first draft of 'The Maccabees'.

Eszterhas accused Gibson of hating Jews and, in a lengthy letter, claimed he was fired because the actor/filmmaker never wanted to make the project in the first place.

"The guy writes a nine-page letter... if he put half as much time and effort and creativity and imagination into a screenplay, which he was supposed to write, as he did into that letter, we wouldn't be having this conversation," Gibson told Leno.

"It's kind of like you build a house, you hire a guy to put a roof on it. He comes over and talks about the roof and then you get rained on all night."

"A guy tapes you in your own home... when did it come to the place where you can't blow off steam in your own home?"
