Hollywood actor Mel Gibson for his life made so many crazy things that he wonders how still alive. Close friends call him ‘a bad head’ and say that it is very similar to its lucky heroes from the film ‘Lethal Weapon’. With congenital candor, Mel never hesitated to say what he thinks, what almost always paid off. Actor accused of anti-Semitism, defamation, homophobia and Anglophobia, assault and battery. And this is not a complete list of all the atrocities of Mel Gibson.
Childhood and adolescence
Despite the fact that the majority thinks Mel Gibson’s Australian, he was born in Peekskill, NY, Jan. 3, 1956. His parents, who were natives of Ireland, raised 11 children. The greatest influence on Mel had his father – a Catholic traditionalist who adhered to extremely conservative views.
In 1968, the family, fearing that Mel will be called into the army and sent to Vietnam, moved to Australia. It was promoted and material success Gibson Sr., suing the company nearly 150 thousand dollars compensation for industrial injury he received while working.
After high school, Mel entered the Sydney Institute of Dramatic Art, where he studied acting. Gibson first appeared on screen in the movie “Summer City” (1977), while still a student. In 1979 he came with his participation paintings ‘Tim’ and ‘Mad Max’. They say that the sample ‘Mad Max’ Gibson came covered in bruises and abrasions that the night before he left the drunken visitors one of the bars. The director was looking for an actor who would look perfectly in that manner. Therefore, the role in the film got Melo without much effort.
Mel Gibson became widely known after the release of the second part of ‘Mad Max’ called ‘The Road Warrior’ (1981). Painting was an incredible success worldwide, and Gibson noticed American producers, who offered him a job in Hollywood. Actor without hesitation moved to the US, where his career took off rapidly.
First Hollywood movie Mel became ‘Bounty’ (1984), where he starred with Anthony Hopkins. He then starred in several obscure films, while in 1987 did not come out adventure thriller ‘Lethal Weapon’, which turned into a real superstar Gibson. In an interview, the actor admitted that only after the shooting in ‘Lethal Weapon’ he got rid of the fear of lack of money.
Mel Gibson’s name was on everyone’s lips, so he did not need work. The best known were his roles in the films’ The Man Without a Face “(1993), ‘Braveheart’ (1995), ‘What Women Want’ (2000), ‘The Patriot’ (2000), ‘Signs’ (2002),’ Beaver ‘ (2011). In 2014, he appears in the third part of the movie Sylvester Stallone ‘The Expendables’.
Even more famous Mel Gibson received as a director. In the early 90s he founded ‘Icon Productions’, under the auspices of which produced four films. Painting Man Without a Face “(1993) was the debut Gibson in cinema. She has not won much popularity, but was warmly received by critics.
Incredible success anticipated film ‘Braveheart’ (1995). Historical drama depicting the struggle for the independence of Scotland, received five film awards Oscar. In general, the film was highly praised by critics, but it was not without negative reviews that were left mostly English editions. They were outraged that the British film are shown in weak-willed and devoid of moral qualities in human beings. Someone even called Gibson anglophobia.
Next work of director ‘Passion of the Christ’ (2004) was followed by even more attacks and accusations. Picture of shocked spectators violent scenes and surprised detailed recreation of the era of Jesus Christ. In particular, the film used Latin, Aramaic and Hebrew languages ??spoken in the beginning of our era. Pope John Paul II praised the film. Critics were less supportive, but Jewish organizations and all called him anti-Semitic. They saw in the movie thought about the guilt of the Jews for Jesus’ death. Gibson said that the essence of a very different picture, however, a scandal erupted with such force that some film companies ceased cooperation with the director.
However, Gibson did not care, because the ‘Passion of the Christ’ had a huge success, gathering in the world hire a huge sum of money. This allowed the director to realize his next project. The film ‘Apocalypse’, released in 2006, talked about the last period of the Mayan civilization. It was filmed in the language of the ancient Maya, and as Gibson’s previous work, led to heated debates in film circles.
Women, alcohol and anti-Semitic remarks
Perhaps no one would look for in anti-Semitic notes of Gibson’s film if the director was more restrained in his statements. Among his recent antics, high-profile, has become the case in 2006 when Mel was arrested for driving while intoxicated. But the public is outraged not it, but his remarks about Jews. According to police, the actor accused the Jews of fomenting all wars, and then asked whether he himself Jewish. Of course, Gibson apologized for his remarks.
By the way, alcohol has always been a faithful companion Gibson in the difficult moments of his life, which, I confess, it was not enough. Actor repeatedly arrested for drunk driving, fights with journalists, public order offenses and other offenses.
In 2012, the public domain has become a major quarrel between Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, who worked together on a new picture. Offended by Mel, Eszterhas leaked online recording of their conversation, where the controversial director again spoke negatively about Jews and using foul language against his ex-wife Oksana Grigorieva. Again, Gibson had to apologize for his long tongue.
The most scandalous event was the last time trial between Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva. They began dating in 2009, after the divorce of the actor with his first wife Robyn Moore. A year later Grigorieva accused Gibson in the assault and sued. After much litigation in 2011, the actor was found guilty of domestic violence and was sentenced to three years probation. He was given 16 hours of community service and ordered to undergo psychotherapy course in anger management.
As he said in an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger, experts have come up with how to contain Gulf of Mexico oil spill, but so far no one knows how to contain Mel Gibson.
