Surprise! Mel Gibson Screams At Children!

Hey, does anyone remember Gaby Hoffmann? Don’t act like you didn’t watch Now and Then, like, 800 times – or, you know, Sleepless In Seattle or Field of Dreams. Take your pick. In any case, Gaby worked with Mel Gibson in The Man Without a Face, and I guess he screamed at her like a maniac on set because, well, he’s Mel Gibson and he’s a terrible person.

From Huffington Post Live:

“I think I happened to work with a bunch of slightly difficult male directors when I was a kid, and then there was Nora [Ephron] who stood out like a shining golden goddess.”

“I’ve since worked with lots of male directors that I love so I no longer see the distinction gender-wise, but yeah, it makes all the difference. You’re either in it together or you’re not, and if you’re not, it sucks.”

“I think we can all agree [working with Gibson is] going to be tough for anyone. He screamed at me. Oh God, he really screamed at me – just started cursing and screaming at me.”

“I think I was acting like a kid instead of a professional actor. It happens once in a while when you’re a kid actor.”

Yeah, that sounds like Mel Gibson, for sure. He’s terrible, so I don’t think anyone will be surprised. I guess you have to applaud him for his consistency, though – it doesn’t even matter if you’re a child. Mel Gibson will still treat you like absolute shit. That’s… comforting?
