NEW YORK -- Kevin Costner said people "shouldn't be attacking" Mel Gibson for "The Passion of the Christ," in an interview on the syndicated entertainment TV show "Access Hollywood."

"We shouldn't be attacking a filmmaker like Mel Gibson who, number one, is an honorable filmmaker ... and probably questioned himself more than anybody even knows. So, like, leave him alone," the 49-year-old director-actor said. (Like, okaaay....)

(When asked about number two, the actor-director threatened to make "Waterworld II".)

Portions of Costner's interview, to air Friday night, were released in advance.

The film, starring Jim Caviezel as Jesus, is a bloody depiction of Christ's final hours and crucifixion. (Actually, when someone is crucified, it really is bloody).

Some Christian and Jewish leaders have complained the movie could fuel anti-Semitism by implying Jews were collectively responsible for Christ's death.

(Kevin Costner is an actor and director who could be Jewish or Christian).
