Mel Gibson has found a new ally in the person of Jodie Foster.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress speaks candidly about her long-time friend Mel Gibson.

“He’s so incredibly loving and sensitive, he really is,” Foster says about the actor. “He is the most loved actor I have ever worked with on a movie. And he’s not saintly, and he’s got a big mouth, and he’ll do gross things your nephew would do. But I knew the minute I met him that I would love him the rest of my life.”

Foster first met Gibson in 1994 when they filmed Maverick together. She’s currently busy promoting her new movie “The Beaver,” which she directed and co-starred in with Gibson.

In the movie, Mel plays a lonely man who speaks through a beaver puppet he carries on his arm. A role in which he gave his all, Foster says.

“The performance he gave in this movie, I will always be grateful for,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “He brought a lifetime of pain to the character that we’ve been talking about for years, that I knew was part of his psyche and who he is. It’s part of him that is beautiful and that I want people to know, too. I can’t ever regret that.”

The actress revealed Gibson found a confident in her during the filming.

“We talked about it all the way through, about what was going on in his life,” she says in the interview. “I don’t think he told me until it was something he couldn’t handle by himself.”

However, when the first voice mails were released on July 9, Gibson was on set doing re-shoots.

“He had a lot of work to do,” Foster remembers. “It was a bad situation. His assistant called me: ‘Come to the trailer!’ And I went to his trailer, and he was a mess. Then he came on set, and he didn’t have any makeup on, anything. He came in and sat down on the chair and said, ‘OK, roll it,’ and did two takes that were just beautiful. Then he got on the plane and left.”

She adds, “I know him in a very complex way. He’s a real person; he’s not a cardboard cutout. I know that he has troubles, and when you love somebody you don’t just walk away from them when they are struggling.”
