Diane Sawyer scored big time by landing the first interview with Mel Gibson since his arrest and anti-Semitic remarks on one super drunk night. He's calling what he said back in July the "stupid rambling of a drunkard." He also said he has not had a drink in 65 days and it sounds like he is counting. Here's more:

"What I need to do to heal myself and to be assuring and allay the fears of others and to heal them if they had any heart wounds from something I may have said," Gibson says. "So, this is the last thing I want to be is that kind of monster."

More of Mel and his interview will be airing on Thursday, Oct. 12 and Friday, Oct. 13 on "Good Morning America." Sounds like someone is working on image control. Who will win, Mel or Tom?
