While promoting his new film 'Edge of Darkness' this week, Mel Gibson called one reporter an "a**hole" after he was asked to answer questions about his notorious drunken, anti-semitic tirade. Then, Gibson had a repeat outburt less than a week later when KTLA Los Angeles reporter Sam Rubin asked if his absence from the big screen had anything to do with his DUI arrest. Cue angry flip out.

Of course, Gibson isn't the only star to have a verbal throw down with reporters. When it comes to interviews, some celebrities get defensive and instead of pleading the fifth, they go on a tirade instead. See the best stars vs. reporters caught on tape. >>
