Mel Gibson Shares the Biggest Lesson He Learned from Hollywood

Mel Gibson discusses his relationship with Hollywood while promoting his new movie, Hacksaw Ridge.

Hollywood has a pretty complicated relationship with Mel Gibson. The former Mad Max star has some crazy meltdowns but also some of the biggest movies in Hollywood history. Recently, Mel Gibson addressed his love/hate relationship with Hollywood while he was in Venice promoting his new war movie, Hacksaw RIdge. According to Variety, he was asked about his relationship with Hollywood and he said one word: "Survival." He was then asked if he was better as both an actor and director when he was younger. But he was able to steer the conversation back towards his new movie and talked about filming large-scale battle scenes.
“To give the impression of chaos and confusion, but to be absolutely clear what it is you want the audience to see and what you want to extract from the sequences. It’s all about screen direction. Knowing who the players are. You have to approach it like a sporting event.”
While it may be difficult to sympathize with Mel Gibson at times considering his history of controversial statements, he has had one of the best careers in Hollywood both in front and behind the camera. (Via Variety) What do you think? Share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
