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."

Gibson who has been grilled in the media for his drunken driving escapades, anti-Semitic remarks and extramarital affairs, said that Woods should take a forgiving at himself in light of what he called his "transgressions."

"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."
