.- Veteran actor Kirk Douglas has urged Mel Gibson to seek "spiritual guidance" from his own Church before consulting with Jewish leaders and groups in Los Angeles to help him make amends for his well-publicized anti-Jewish outburst, reported the Daily Variety.
Gibson outraged Jewish community leaders last month when an anti-Semitic rant he made during a police arrest made headlines. Gibson has since apologized for his drunken comments.
"Mel's first apology was too contrite and seemingly not remorseful,â said Douglas. âHis second was an afterthought.â
The Jewish actor stopped short of describing Gibson as an anti-Semite but said he disagrees that Gibson "is now ready to talk to a Jewish group or a rabbi.
âHe is a Catholic and appears to need some spiritual guidance,â he added. "Perhaps he should talk to one of his own faith."
Douglas also said Gibson is âin a messâ and desperately needs help for his alcoholism.
