Photo Courtesy - Valerie Macon/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Hangover 2 director Todd Phillips knows the importance of chemistry on set.  Phillips tells Us Weekly he decided to drop Mel Gibson from his planned cameo in the upcoming comedy in order to keep the peace with the cast, which reportedly objected to the Braveheart star's involvement.

Phillips said, "He's one of our finest actors and, quite honestly, one of our finest directors.  But The Hangover 2 is a family...and as much as I loved the idea, a lot of people didn't...I didn't want anything to come in between that family."

Mel Gibson's Ex: "I Thought He Would Kill Me" 

Photo Courtesy - Angela Weiss/Getty ImagesWe've heard Mel Gibson's rants, and now his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, is getting a chance to speak.  The 40-year-old Russian musician explains to People magazine why she decided to record the controversial phone conversations she had with the Oscar-winner earlier this year, which wound up posted online.

Says Grigorieva, "I needed to document his threats."  Speaking about their troubled relationship, she also said, "I thought he would kill me."

While discussing the alleged incident last January in which Gibson is accused of hitting her while she held their baby daughter, Lucia, Grigorieva said Gibson was "frothing at the mouth" and "talking to himself like a lunatic."  She also said he threatened to kill her, choked her and pointed a gun at her.

Grigorieva said Gibson battled depression that got so bad he had "thoughts of suicide," adding he "would've killed himself many times if he wasn't Catholic....He's afraid of Hell."

Grigorieva again denied that she was the one who distributed the recordings of their phone conversations and denies the actor's claim that she tried to use them to blackmail him.

Despite their volatile relationship, Grigorieva says she doesn't harbor any ill will towards Gibson, adding, "I'm not angry at him.  For the sake of Lucia, I really want him to be well.  He has to have the courage to be responsible for what he's done."
