Director M NIGHT SHYAMALAN has joined the celebrities supporting disgraced Mel Gibson as he recovers from stinging attacks following his much-publicised anti-Semitic rant. Gibson upset the Jewish community after comments he made during a drink driving arrest were made public at the end of last month (28JUL06). Jodie Foster and Patrick Swayze were among the first to offer their public support to Gibson, and now his SIGNS director is weighing in. Shyamalan, who is in London for the British premiere of new movie THE LADY IN THE WATER, says, "He's very kind to everyone around him, he has never treated anybody badly. "Who he is will always come out and he's an inspiring, sweet guy, so eventually he'll overcome all this."
