MALIBU, Calif. -- Aussie actor/movie director Mel Gibson made another emotional plea for forgiveness from the world's Jewish community yesterday for comments that have been termed anti-semitic.

The troubled hunk showed up at a hastily-called press conference in something resembling goats' horns or the devil's, saying he continues to feel incredible remorse and guilt for his fire-laden words.

Gibson was pulled over for driving while under the influence of alcohol and the police report described him as being drunk and making several scathing remarks against Jews.

Yesterday, the star of several blockbuster movies continued his campaign to keep his acting/directing career on track, insisting he did not hate Jews and that he has a drinking problem.

However, the Jewish community -- which has said this week Gibson needs to go beyond apologies and addiction counselling to make amends -- reacted to Gibson's latest appeals with apathy and little comment.

Gibson was later seen outside a bar. His publicist could not be reached for comment.
