Mel Gibson, Demi Lovato open up in candid interviews

By Sean O’Connell Two stars with decidedly checkered pasts are opening up to the media, telling their side of two highly publicized meltdowns that fuelled gossip and speculation for months.

The big get has to be Mel Gibson, who sat down with Allison Hope Weiner for a candid Q-and-A indirectly tied to the release of Jodie Foster’s drama “The Beaver.” The interview, which is up and running on Deadline, dives into the recorded rants aimed at Gibson’s ex-wife, Oksana Grigorieva, which turned the Oscar-winning actor-director into Public Enemy No. 1. But the interview isn’t only about Gibson’s scandalous past. It questions him about his acting, his opinions of his compatriots in the entertainment industry, his professional regrets, his friendship with Foster, and other interesting components. Take the time to check it out, as it’s a compelling read.

The other candid interview comes from pop star Demi Lovato, who appeared to have it all before she broke down on tour and checked herself into a treatment center. Now that she’s out, the young starlet sits down with ABC News’ Robin Roberts about “her struggles with cutting and food addictions, and … the depression that has plagued her since childhood,” according to reports.

A portion of Roberts’ interview will air on “Good Morning America” Friday morning, with the full clip airing on “20/20” later Friday evening. Check local listings for channel and time.
