Mel Gibson

Born to a devout Catholic family in New York (but later raised in Australia), Mel was the sixth addition of Hutton and Ann Gibson's brood of eleven children total.
Mel's acting career got a late start, while attending the University of New South Wales where he began appearing in performances at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts. After finishing up with school, Mel made the occasional appearance onstage or in a television show or two. His breakthrough role came in 1979 when he starred in the cult futuristic classic Mad Max, which also brought him to the attention of audiences worldwide. Mel later made his official US debut in the 1984 film The Bounty co-starring with screen legend Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Now known as one of the most talented and famous actors of all time, Mel still wows audiences worldwide with his acting ability as well with his talent as an director and producer.

Mel has been married to Robyn Moore since 1980, they are also the parents of seven children.

All news

Peter Stormare: (on Mel) That's the way you should do it. Take a garbage role for the money, like Lethal Weapon 4, and then do what you want to do. He's a cool fella.

Mel Gibson: (On his religious beliefs) I'm not a done deal. I'm a work in progress. I'm still extremely flawed.

Mel Gibson: My fears: everything from being afraid that I'm going to run out of cream for my cornflakes right up to someone chopping my privates off.

Mel Gibson: Acting is like lying. The art of lying well. I'm paid to tell elaborate lies.

Mel Gibson: I like directing much better. It's more fun, that's all there is to it. It's essentially the same job, which is storytelling, but you have more control over the way you want to tell the story. It's a high. I love it.

Mel Gibson: Above all, film is a business ...Independence is a really cool thing as you can be a bit more bold, and take a few more chances with what you do.

Mel Gibson: I wasn't exactly the most zealous keeper-of-the-flame, you know? I was a pretty wild boy quite frankly. Even now when I'm trying more than I was before, I still fail every day at some level, but that's being human.

Mel Gibson: A woman should be home with the children, building that home and making sure there's a secure family atmosphere.

Mel Gibson: I'd like to be able to wake up early every morning, but I don't. I'd like to quit smoking. I'd like to never lose my temper. The list goes on and on. I'd even like to get dressed by myself, and not have other people watching me.

Mel Gibson: (About the Passion of the Christ) This movie is about Faith, Hope, Love and Forgiveness. Themes that are as important now as they were in Jesus' time.
