In Michael Medved's post on the success of Mel Gibson's "Apocalypto," he comments on how Gibson rose above his anti-semitic leanings (and we thought we were all the victims here) and the general public's disdain for his drunk-driving tirades, to produce a quality film that everyone is raving about. Regarding his "stunningly strong latest opus," Medved says:

First rate art emerges all the time from reprehensible individuals—Beethoven was a louse and a grouch in his personal life, Richard Wagner was a committed, shameless Jew-hater, Tolstoy raped literally hundreds (if not thousands) of peasant girls, Picasso used and abused all the women he ever knew, T.S. Eliot drove his first wife, Viv, to the loony bin and also hated Jews, and so on and so forth.

So like the message here is don't hate me cause I'm so bloody talented, right?
