Mike Tyson: We All Have Mel Gibson in Us

Mike Tyson loves Mel Gibson! Ok, maybe that was a little bit of an exaggeration. But the boxer definitely isn’t judgmental when it comes to Mad Mel.

In an interview with the New York Post, Tyson says he’d “100 percent” have worked with Gibson on the Hangover sequel.

"I'm not going to ever in my life point my finger at anyone. I don't live in a glass house. None of us do. I work with anybody, as long as they're respectful."

Interesting comment, since Mel apparently bashed Tyson last week after hearing he was getting the axe. A source said, "He doesn't understand why Mike Tyson, a drug user who turned his life around, was given a chance while Mel was kicked to the curb. Everybody deserves a second chance."

But Tyson seems to think he and Mad Mel have similarities. "We all have that guy -- a Mel Gibson -- in us,” he said.

“We just don't want people to be exposed to it. Maybe he needs to go get help. We all need help, and need someone to talk to. I'm not against him, but I'm not for him."

Easy for Tyson to say—he’s just landed another role in the biggest sequel of the year! Hellllooooo comeback!
