Mel Gibson

We have all wished that our favorite characters in movies or shows was a real person.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to sit down to a plate of pasta and a glass of cabernet with Tony Soprano?  But as the saying goes, sometimes you don’t want to meet your heroes.  Mel Gibson has been making some of the biggest movies in the world for the last 30 plus years.  He’s played some characters that you would want to hang out with, but from what we’ve seen over the past few years, not sure you would want to hang out with the man himself.  But is it fair to judge someone’s career and life over a couple bad interactions?  Or does the truth of what he really thinks seem to come out after a few too many cocktails?  We’ll dive into these questions and more on this episode of AHC Podcast.
