Mel Gibson made light of his troubled past during a visit to “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”.
Appearing in the show’s “Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars” segment, the “Hacksaw Ridge” director managed to poke fun at his controversial behaviour while lying on a blanket under the stars with Colbert. When the late night host asked if he had any regrets, Gibson quipped, “No, not one… They tend to come in clusters.”
Later, the Oscar winner got even more blunt as Colbert asked if he had any advice for his younger self. “Don’t be so caught up in the little things, take advantage of all the gifts the world has to offer, live every day to the fullest,” he replied. “I’d also tell myself to shut the f*** up.”
Of course, not all the jabs were aimed at the actor. When he asked the comedian to name the scariest movie he’s ever seen, Colbert responded, “It’s that one where the psychopath traps two people in his house and tortures them.”
“Yeah, ‘Home Alone’ is really scary,” Gibson deadpanned.
