Foster told More magazine that he's the "easiest, nicest person I've ever worked with... The second I met him, I said, 'I will love this man for the rest of my life.'"
Foster, co-starred with Gibson in the 1994 film "Maverick," and recently reunited with him for "The Beaver," which she also directed. The film does not have a release date. "When you love a friend, you don't abandon them when they are struggling," Foster told the magazine. "Of course, Mel is an undeniably gifted actor and director, and 'The Beaver' is one of his most powerful and moving performances. But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can help him get through this dark moment."
That’s not how it’s supposed to go. You’re supposed to flee behind reps who issue “No comments” or just stop returning calls or change the subject. This is why some people respect Ms. Foster more than, say, some Hollywood figures who would drug their mother and sell the sex tape to Vivid if it meant getting a role in a Clooney pic. But one of the big serious ones. Not the ones with those Coen brothers. They're great but no one sees them.
