Winona Ryder Hopes Mel Gibson Deals 'with His Demons' After Anti-Semitic Allegations Resurface

"Mel Gibson was smoking a cigar, and we're all talking and he said to my friend, who's gay 'Oh wait, am I gonna get AIDS?'" Ryder told the outlet.

"And then something came up about Jews, and he said 'You're not an oven dodger, are you?'" she said.

Ryder added that Gibson "tried" to apologize at a later date.

A representative for Gibson said in response to her allegations, "This is 100% untrue. She lied about it over a decade ago, when she talked to the press, and she’s lying about it now. Also, she lied about him trying to apologize to her back then. He did reach out to her, many years ago, to confront her about her lies and she refused to address it with him."

The Plot Against America is centered around World War II and is told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in America during the presidential rise of Charles Lindbergh as he turned the nation toward fascism.

It is currently available to stream on HBO Max.
