MEL GIBSON ADMITS HE HAS A "BIT OF A TEMPER"
Mel Gibson is laughing off his most recent leaked rant.
The actor appeared on The Tonight Show Friday and told Jay, "You know, I love coming to [your show] because when I get here and you tape me, you let me know you're going to do that up front!"
Mel made headlines recently when screenwriter Joe Eszterhas accused him of being anti-Semitic and released tapes of the star flipping out.
He admitted to Jay that he had been "peeved" at Joe over the delay of the script for The Maccabees. Mel added, "You know, maybe you don't know this about me, but I've got a little bit of a temper."
HUNGER GAMES STAR USES FAKE ID TO GET LIQUOR
Actor Josh Hutcherson has gone from the Hunger Games to underage drinking games.
The 19-year-old was caught tricking a grocery store into selling him an expensive bottle of whiskey by using a fake ID. TMZ obtained a photo of the Hunger Games star leaving Ralph's Grocery store in Sherman Oaks, California earlier this month with a bottle of Macallan whiskey in hand -- which, they say, goes for $170. Interestingly, a few weeks ago, Josh told the gossip blog, "I think the age to go to war is 18...so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well."
LINDSAY LOHAN A TOTAL NIGHTMARE ON GLEE SET
Before she was rubbing elbows with the President Saturday, Lindsay Lohan was giving the crew of Glee hell.
Sources tell E! Online that the starlet showed up "three hours late" and was a "total nightmare" for her guest spot on the show. One insider says, "When she did finally arrive, she just didn't want to be there. She did not want to work. She had not memorized her lines, and she kept disappearing so no one could find her."
The source adds, "One of her demands has to do with her trailer size. The cast is already worked to death and then she puts everything behind. She is a diva!"
Her spokesperson called the rumors "utter B.S."
In the episode, slated to air May 15th, Lindsay plays herself as a judge at the "Nationals" competition.
