Mel Gibson has apparently picked up a new skill, though it’s not clear how he plans to use it. According to PopCrunch. com, he took a crash-course in hypnotism with Rick Collingwood, an Australian expert. “Mel’s a natural. He’s got the look and the patter — as well as piercing blue eyes. He’s going to be a great hypnotist,” Collingwood says. “He is very, very interested in it. He didn’t say he wanted to learn it for a specific reason.”


No specific reason? If somehow we all suddenly forget Gibson’s whole anti-semitic/sweet-tits incident, we know who to blame.


Oh, and he should erase “Apocalypto” from modern memory while he’s at it.
