Mel Gibson was forced to call in police on Wednesday after a DVD copy of his new movie "The Beaver" was stolen from his mailbox outside his Los Angeles home.
Production bosses at Summit Entertainment sent Gibson a copy of the film, directed by Jodie Foster, so he could view the final cut before its world premiere at the upcoming South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.
Gibson screened the picture at his home earlier this week and placed it back in his mailbox ready for collection by a courier on Wednesday.
But the DVD was nowhere to be found when the delivery man arrived to pick up the package - prompting Gibson to report the incident to local authorities.
- OR - this was the most Mel Gibson could do to drum up some hype about his new movie which will probably tank cos everyone (race, religion, gender) he's offended (including all y'all that got called "sugar tits") is sure to boycott this and any other movie he makes.

Charlie Sheen was admitted into a hospital on Thursday for pain due to a hiatal hernia. I guess it's from all the straining he has to do.
But luckily, he's checked himself into a rehabilitation centre, just a day after he was treated in hospital for a hernia. Sheen is FINALLY seeking professional treatment for unspecified issues (the issues being porn stars, hookers, and suitcases full of cocaine).
Sheen had been expected to return to work on his sitcom "Two and a Half Men" on Tuesday when the program was supposed to resume filming, but TV bosses have now placed the show on an indefinite hiatus.
This is Sheen's third stint in rehab - he previously sought help for drug problems in 1998, while he checked into a medical facility last year as a "preventive" measure following his Christmas Day altercation with wife Brooke Mueller in 2009.
Well, maybe if they weren't paying him $2 million an episode he wouldn't have all this money to spend on his... issues.

After a string of flops and non-releases, Katie Holmes may soon be well considered box office poison. You'd think being married to the hottest, tallest, most heterosexual actor Tom Cruise would guarantee you a golden ticket in Hollywood... but I guess not.
The first screening of Al Pacino's new movie "The Son Of No One" was marred by a number of walkouts at a preview for Hollywood executives on Monday.
The gritty crime drama, starring Pacino, Channing Tatum, Ray Liotta and Katie Holmes, received a lukewarm response from the audience at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The publication reports "a stream" of movie studio bosses walked out before the credits rolled, while one fan's attempts to lead a round of applause at the end of the film did not catch on.

George Clooney is adamant he will never, ever get married again (ya hear that, Elisabetta Canalis?). Interesting piece of trivia - George's ex-wife Talia Balsam has been married to the handsome John Slattery (Roger Sterling from Mad Men) since 1998. Definitely an upgrade from the 50 year old Clooney who still lives life like a 20 year old college frat boy.
On Monday's show, Oprah is supposed to reveal some secret family news... one that shocked her to the core.
"This time, I'm the one being reunited," she says in a commercial promoting Monday's show. "I was keeping a family secret for months, and on Monday you're going to hear it straight from me."
Speculation is rampant over just what that secret is. Winfrey was born to unwed teenage parents and raised by her grandmother, mother and father and stepmother at different times in her childhood.
At the age of 14, Winfrey became pregnant but lost her baby shortly after birth.
Maybe she's being reunited with mac'n'cheese? Maybe the baby she lost at 14 wasn't dead? Is she related to Elvis? Michael Jackson? Jermajesty??? What could it be?!?! Discuss.
Sandra Bullock's ex-ape of a hubby is engaged to another tattoo'd chick (not the same one, but heck, who can tell 'em apart). They're planning on getting married as early as next month! Good riddance to the Vanilla Gorilla (eww). :P
The hair... OMD, the hair!!! Really? Really?
Ummm... I have a dirty little secret to confess. I *temporarily* got hooked on watching the Kardashians (both Keeping up With and Kourtney and Khloé...) I am so sorry! Those darned grandpeeps have cable and I just could.not.look.away. And I like Kong, I mean Khloé the best.
Anyone else think Scott Disick looks (and acts) like Patrick Bateman from American Psycho? Creepy.
Regis Philbin has announced his retirement - evidently he didn't tell his co-host Kelly Ripa about it until 15 minutes before they went live. Rumor is that his contract was coming to an end and they were going to give him a serious pay cut... which prompted his quitting.
Other miscellaneous news: Brangelina were all over each other at the Golden Globes last weekend (get a room!); Mila Kunis has been blind in one eye this whole time, but had surgery to correct it recently (kinda coincided with breaking up with Macaulay Caulkin - I'm just sayin'); Lindsay Lohan was going to pay off some chick who worked at the Betty Ford clinic, but didn't - seriously, how do you get outsmarted by a crack addict?!; Tay-Tay Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal ate food together in Nashville... is Jake trying to stem the possibility of a revenge song written about him?
Phew. That is all for now, pals.

Funniest thing I've read all week... Benjamin Millepied - the dood who knocked up Natalie Portman, was the choreographer for her movie "Black Swan". He evidently left his live-in girlfriend for Portman, who announced her engagement and pregnancy to "ballet K-Fed". Nice!!!
“I don’t think he even thought twice about leaving his girlfriend – which isn’t a very good sign of character. He seems like a social climber who was all over Natalie the moment they met,” an insider adds.
Portman’s friends are said to be so convinced of Benjamin’s poisonous nature that they’ve already started referring to him by a nickname.
“They’re calling him the ballet version of K-Fed! Unfortunately, he’s the father of her baby, and her pals think that she wouldn’t be getting married if she wasn’t pregnant, and that it’s all going too fast. They’re nervous that Natalie will wake up one day and wonder what happened,” says a spy.

Anne Hathaway will be donning the skin tight leather / latex (?) catsuit to play Catwoman in the next Dark Knight Batman series... interesting choice I guess. She fought off competition from Sienna Miller, Charlize Theron and Kate Beckinsale. A bit of a burn for Katie Holmes, who was dropped from the first Dark Knight series and who was later mocked by Hathaway in her SNL sketch. :o)

How did I miss this?!?!?!?!
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban announced on Monday that they welcomed their second daughter. Via surrogate! Apparently the baby - a little girl named Faith Margaret- was born on December 28, and they’re just announcing it now.

Michael Scott is leaving "The Office" early! :o(
Steve Carell will hand in his notice a month ahead of schedule - he is leaving the hit U.S. show before the series finale.
Paul Lieberstein tells New York Magazine's Vulture blog, "Steve will have a number of episodes that dramatise and lead up to Steve leaving. Then we'll continue on for about four more episodes, and the spring will prove to be not about an actor leaving, but what happens in an office when a manager leaves and the chaos ensues and people vie for the job and are uncertain about their future."
A replacement for Carell has yet to be announced, and Lieberstein reveals producers are considering bringing in "guest stars" to interview for his character's position.
Oh no oh no oh no... I hope Michael Scott leaves for happy (Holly) reasons!

Zsa Zsa Gabor is undergoing surgery to amputate half of her right leg after a serious gangrene infection spread to her bone.
Gabor was admitted to Los Angeles' UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center on January 2nd after medics told the star's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, that immediate action was required to treat the infection.
They prescribed Gabor a course of strong antibiotics as an alternative to severing the limb, but the medicine was ineffective and von Anhalt gave doctors permission to go ahead with the operation last week.
Surgeons tried to hold off the amputation by attempting to remove a blood clot from Gabor's leg as a last-ditch attempt, but the gangrene has now penetrated the bone, leaving medics with no other choice.
Yikes... wishing her a speedy recovery. At least she's still got TWO hands to slap with. :P
