News of Gibsons diagnosis comes a month after the actor denied allegations of anti-semitism and homophobia made by Winona Ryder.

Ryder said in an interview withThe Times that Gibson called her an oven dodger when he learned of her Jewish heritage, and asked a friend of hers who is gay: Oh, wait, am I gonna get AIDS?

In response, Gibsons representatives toldThe New York Post in a statement:This is 100% untrue. She lied about it over a decade ago, when she talked to the press, and shes lying about it now.
