Who says Mel Gibson is nothing but a raging drunk of an anti-semite?

Oh. Right. We do.

At least one sensible, reliable source claims something different, however. In fact, Courtney Love says Gibson saved her from a life of drug addiction.

The former heroin addict – who was married to the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain – says she refused to seek professional help until the surly Mel forced her to

Love told Britain’s Sunday Times magazine:

“I kept slamming the door in his face. There were two drug people with me who wouldn’t leave so he couldn’t get me to rehab. But because of Mel, the drug people ran off to have a cheeseburger with him, because he’s Mel, and then my drug minder Warren could get me into rehab.”

That’s Mel Gibson for you, alright. Saving addicts one cheeseburger at a time. Too bad the same solution would never work for Kate Bosworth.

Love, 48, also confessed she still regrets breaking off her romance with actor Edward Norton, who she met while she was on tour with her band Hole.

But, wait, there’s more from Kurt Cobain’s widow! The outrageous singer admitted she can’t stop herself from getting naked in public. This woman, who once flashed her breasts on David Letterman, may like her boobs more than Victoria Beckham.

“I’m in my prime, my body looks great. Nudity comes easy to me. I would drink before I go on TV and somehow my shirt would come off,” Love said.

Can we get a cheeseburger while we watch that?
