Mel Gibson: ‘I don’t care if I never act again’

Star unsure of future after recent personal life issues

Mel Gibson has said he doesn’t care if he never acts again – although he is planning to work with Braveheart screenwriter Randall Wallace again.

The Edge Of Darkness star said “it’s not a problem” that he may never work in front of the camera again in an interview published by

Gibson was sentenced to three years probation at a domestic violence case involving the mother of his baby daughter Oksana Grigorieva last month.

The actor escaped jail time in return for admitting guilt under Californian law.


Gibson was allegedly recorded making threats to Grigorieva in tapes leaked online last summer.

Commenting on the case, Gibson said: “I’ve never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality – period.

“I don’t blame some people for thinking that though, from the garbage they heard on those leaked tapes, which have been edited.”

Speaking about the project with Wallace, Gibson said: “He’s got this script and he’s had it for years.

“I don’t know if it’s going to get off the ground.”
