To be fair to Woody Allen he didn’t married his adopted daughter, he married Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter. He was never legally her father.
Also, I can never understand how Gibson’s words are considered worse than his drink driving. I do sympathize with him though, he is a sick man, he’s an alcoholic who needed help rather than public vilification.
While technically true, I guess, Woody’s still pretty creepy.
And Mel, literally just after I posted this podcast, was reported on being super defensive about his past behavior.
Seems like complaining about people bringing up your past bad behavior is not the best way to get them to forgive you for it.
Again, I can sympathize with Gibson.
For people with mental health issues it’s important to be able to move on and being constantly reminded about a dark time in his life brought about by his problems is not helpful therapy.
He was punished (not only by the court, but by the public and his industry too), he apologized and he got help. I’m not sure what else he is supposed to do.
Other than confirming the superiority of the oh-so-perfect people who bring it up what help is it doing?
That’s something we really didn’t get into during the podcast: when has a disgraced artist done enough (repented, sought help, etc.) to be considered redeemed?
