SARA DEFENDS MEL

Mel Gibson's been in the hot seat lately with his controversial film, The Passion of the Christ - but that hasn't stopped Sara Evans from sticking up for him. Sara was one of a few country artists who got a sneak peek at the film months before its national release. "Yeah, he needed a lot of prayer, he needed a lot of support and I know it's been really, really hard on him," says Sara. "But like he said, he was more afraid not to do it than to do it because he knew he was called. And he said it's been on his mind for the last 12 years, the making of this film, so that's why I have been so outspoken is because I get really, really angry at the criticism that he's gotten and people saying that he's anti-Semitic and just stuff like that, which is completely not his heart."
