Winona Ryder: Mel Gibson Called Me an 'Oven Dodger'

Photo Courtesy - FilmMagic/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Winona Ryder claims she's known about Mel Gibson's not-so-palatable side for years.

"I remember, like, fifteen years ago, I was at one of those big Hollywood parties,” Ryder told GQ Magazine in the January 2011 issue. “He was really drunk. I was with my friend, who's gay. He made a really horrible gay joke. And somehow it came up that I was Jewish. He said something about 'oven dodgers,' but I didn't get it. I'd never heard that before. It was just this weird, weird moment. I was like, 'He's anti-Semitic and he's homophobic.' No one believed me!"

Gibson's publicist did not immediately respond to an ABC News request for comment.
