Gibson and I share complex friendship: FosterJune 13th, 2011 - 4:32 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 13 (IANS) Actress Jodie Foster, who shares a strong bond with troubled actor Mel Gibson, says their friendship is complicated.
“I knew the minute I met Mel that he was going to be my friend for the rest of my life. It’s complex but I like the complexity,” contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
Foster, who has been friends with Gibson for years, stood next to him when he was accused of domestic abuse by his former lover Oksana Grigorieva.
Foster doesn’t regret her decision and said: “No, because I know him and I love him and I love him for his complexities. I don’t think there are many actors who can inhabit the lightness we needed for the movies, but who can also really understand struggle.
“And because of the conversations we’ve been having for 15 years about struggle. I can’t defend him but when you love somebody and they are struggling you don’t run in the opposite direction.”
