Two actors whom at their hights are quite stellar actors. Mel as Hamlet is one of my favourite actor preformances and Toms The Last Samurai, equaly favoured but many other movies inbetween in very width generes. Both can do drama, action, epics, post apocalyptic, comedy, thriller and onandond, Mel is a better comedic actor while Tom is a better drama actor ( Rain Man).

so which is it you like/favours mostly

I like films that they both have been in, especially Gibson (Gallipoli, The Bounty and Mad Max) but I don't regard the actors highly. I will say that they are two actors that creep me out IRL.

This Tom Cruise Scientology video is quite something.



And Mel Gibson's various rants.

Mel Gibson is clearly the more stellar of the two.

I like both equally but they are both not in the elite group of actors.

I can never forgive Cruise for casting himself as Jack Reacher.

Do I have to pick? I guess if we went back to Lethal Weapon era, I'd have to go with Gibson but given what we now know about both of them, I can't say that I like either of them. Sometimes, it's difficult to separate the artist from the art

The anti-semite vs the scientologist

They are both tw&ts.

Should do a Christian Bale vs. Alec Baldwin poll next. ;)

Normally I do like to separate the performer/artist from the work, but, as with Jeffro's point, it can be kind of hard to do. If I held Cruise or Gibson in higher regard as actors then I probably would not care so much. {EDIT, when I say care so much, I mean that I might have a favourite without commenting on their stranger traits, but instead just think about the work -- even if I might actually care more since I might respect them more due to their abilities and so care more about how they are as people).

I mean, I like a lot of stuff made by people who have done reprehensible things and/or who have views that I hold in disdain. I won't not watch a Roman Polanski film no matter what I think of the man, but sometimes I think that I shouldn't support these people. There's an album by a convicted murderer in PA that I really like.

I've said things that people could hold against me, but I'm not famous, nor am I taken that seriously, so hardly anyone cares. I haven't gone on racist tirades, threatened violence, or have whacky religious views (well, some might find my lack of religion whacky), but I've said crap around my family when angry or frustrated that is utterly disdainful. Still, I don't like to be judgmental (most people have good days and bad days and some good and bad years, and most do good and bad things -- who knows the psychology of these people and what they have gone through).

Anyway, Cruise and Gibson both give me the creeps. That said, it won't stop me from enjoying movies that they've been in. I will vote for Gibson because between 1979 and 1984 he was in a number of films that I really liked: Gallipoli, The Year of Living Dangerously, The Bounty, Mad Max, and Mad Max II.

Well, being a Scientologist is perhaps a bit less egregious than being anti-semitic....but flip a coin.
I suppose though they have both made some good action films.
