Mel Gibson Denies Making Anti-Semitic Remark To Winona Ryder: 'This Is 100% Untrue'

Also available on the nbc app

Winona Ryder is doubling down on past claims about Mel Gibson making anti-semitic and homophobic comments. The "Stranger Things" star detailed an alleged encounter with Gibson years ago at a Hollywood event as she spoke to The Sunday Times about her experience with discrimination in the industry as a Jewish woman. "We were at a crowded party with one of my good friends," Ryder said. "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?'" A rep for Gibson denied the allegations in a statement obtained by Access Hollywood.
