Mel Gibson Had To Drink Before Telling Kids About Arrest
The star says he went to work that morning like any other day, but made some bad decisions because of "too much pressure, too much work. You do things that go against good judgment."
He tells Diane Sawyer on "Good Morning America," "I just went home and saw my kids were there and I talked to them for a little bit. It was a little rough that morning, so I chased it down with a few cold ones. It was kind of unbearable to face. I just thought, 'This is it. This is the end of it, but I just have to get through this morning.' You're not operating well, but you know you have to do something. I mean I wasn't flashing it in front of them or anything."
Gibson claims he faced suicidal despair after his relapse at the thought of telling his wife of 26 years Robyn and their seven children what he had done. He says, "I just told her straight out, 'slipped again.' Of course she didn't like that, but she was gracious, compassionate. I've apologized more than anyone I know. It's getting old."
