VIDEO: Mel Gibson On Tiger Woods – "I Love The Guy"

Mel Gibson knows a thing or two about being the focal point of a scandal: that’s why the famed actor-director can empathize with golfer Tiger Woods.

“I mean, he’s beat — they’re beating the hell out of him, you know?” Gibson told Good Morning America on Monday. “So you know, I love the guy. He’s full of flaws, like all the rest of us. And he’s getting a rough time.”

“Ask any human being walking on the planet, ‘Have you ever done anything that you’re not too proud of?’ And I think most people will say ‘Yes. I’ve done a few things I’m not too proud of,’” The Passion director said. “And a lot of times the most difficult thing about all of that is being able to forgive yourself … geez, I want to watch him play golf.”
