Mel Gibson and Jodie FosterEver since his rage-filled phone calls with his ex-girlfriend were released, Mel Gibson's life has been a struggle to say the least, but at least he still has Jodie Foster by his side.

"The second I met him [working on 'Maverick' in 1994], I said, 'I will love this man for the rest of my life,'" Foster tells MORE magazine in their October issue. "When you love a friend, you don't abandon them when they're struggling ... But more importantly, he is and has been a true and loyal friend. I hope I can get him through this dark moment."
