At last Mel Gibson has sought help for his leprosy problem.
The Christian-loving former alcoholic alleged anti-Semite has had a long suffering relationship with the disease. During Lethal Weapon 4 he insisted that midget actor Joe Pesci should be included in many scenes in order to distract from his pain.
"Mel and I haven't spoken in a little while", said Pesci from his padded San Quentin prison cell, "but he was really suffering during those movies.Always scratching himself and tearing off lumps of flesh and hair.Especially whenever I turned up on set".
Gibson blames his disease on poor quality holy water he drank while on a vacation in Israel with his father.
