A red flag to Mel's 2010-2011 meltdown came in 1991. Apparently, he'd been drinking before an interview. He made homophobic remarks. Said handsome movie star Gibson to the foreign reporter: "With this look, who's going to think I'm gay? I don't lend myself to that type of confusion. Do I look like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?"
Don't get me started.
Mel's film career began in Australia. Here are shots of him as Max in 1979's MAD MAX. Max converses with a bald acquaintance who was watering plants. Look at their fashion statements.
