Miscellaneous: 
Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson grew up in a family with strong ties to the film industry. His father was a well-known American actor, while his mother was an Irish actress. After graduating from high school, Gibson moved to Australia, where he studied acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA).
 
Despite his success, he repeatedly hit the headlines for his controversial behavior and statements. In 2006, he was arrested for drunk driving and made racist remarks to the police officer. This led to a public scandal and a temporary decline in his popularity.
 
In recent years, Gibson has tried to restore his image and focus on his career as an actor and director.

His career began in the late 1970s with appearances in Australian television series and films. Mel Gibson's breakthrough in Hollywood came with his role as Max Rockatansky in the Australian action film "Mad Max" in 1979. The film was a huge success and established Gibson as an up-and-coming star. He also played the lead role in the two sequels "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior" (1981) and "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome" (1985), which were also successful.
 
Another milestone in Gibson's career was his role as Martin Riggs in the action comedy "Lethal Weapon" (1987) and its sequels. The films were huge box office successes and made Gibson one of the most popular action stars of the 1980s and 1990s.
 
Development:
In the 1980s and 1990s, Gibson starred in a number of successful films, including "Lethal Weapon" (1987), "Braveheart" (1995) and "The Patriot" (2000). For his role as William Wallace in "Braveheart", he won both the Oscar for Best Director and the Oscar for Best Picture.
