Mel Gibson must know that the first step in changing your ways is admitting you have a problem.
"Maybe you don't know this about me -- I've got a little bit of a temper," Gibson said with a laugh on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," referring to his much-publicized confrontation with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, the most recent in a growing number of leaked tapes of the actor's curse-filled rants.
Things were more than a little awkward as Leno pressed Gibson for details on the feud. Gibson played the victim, saying that it's wrong to be recorded in the privacy of your own home, and that Eszterhas won't just drop it, even though Gibson already apologized to him. "I guess it wasn't good enough ... sorry," he said, later adding, "I shall pray for him."
Before plugging his latest movie, "Get the Gringo," Gibson did come up with a new business idea.
"We should find a fledgling tabloid Web site, give them my phone number, and they record me! But don't do it to anybody else though, because you'll get in trouble 'cuz it might be illegal. I'm special," he said.
Obviously he's joking, but someone could make some serious money off of that.
