Mel Gibson was the toast of Hollywood – had been for years – when he was stopped by a police officer in Malibu, California. He was arrested for drunk driving and launched into an attack on the officer - who was Jewish.
He allegedly shouted: "F***king Jews…the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world".
George Clooney has teamed up with his Jewish longtime writing partner Grant Heslov on the political thriller The Ides of March.
Due for release next year, the film - about a presidential candidate and his political team - has already been tipped for next year's Academy Awards. Stars include Clooney, Ryan Gosling and Jewish actress Evan Rachel wood.
