    Mel Gibson est un acteur, réalisateur, scénariste et producteur américain, né le 3 janvier 1956 à Peekskill (État de New York). Il devient célèbre en tenant le rôle-titre de Mad Max et prend place parmi les acteurs les mieux payés d'Hollywood en tenant la vedette de L'Arme fatale. Grâce à l'énorme succès de ces deux sagas, il fonde sa propre société Icon Productions, qui lui permet de produire et de réaliser ses propres films comme Braveheart (dans lequel il joue et pour lequel il remporte l'Oscar du meilleur réalisateur et celui du meilleur film en 1996) et La passion du Christ qui lance une vive polémique en 2004. En 1985, Mel Gibson est le premier acteur à être élu l'« homme le plus sexy du monde » par le magazine People. Au total, les films dans lesquels il a joués (et/ou qu'il a réalisés) ont rapporté 2 milliards de dollars aux États-Unis et 5 milliards de dollars dans le monde, ce qui le place parmi les acteurs les plus rentables de l'histoire du cinéma.

    Мэл Гибсон Родился в семье ирландцев-католиков, был шестым из одиннадцати детей. Своё первое имя он получил в честь святого Мэла, покровителя Арда (англ.), откуда была родом мать актёра; а второе имя (Colm-Cille) совпадает с ирландским святым Колумба и поместьем в Лонгфорде, где выросла мать актёра. В 1968 Гибсоны переехали в Австралию, где у них появилось ещё пять детей. Этому предшествовало то, что отец, потеряв работу, отсудил у компании 145 000 долларов за производственную травму. Окончив австралийскую школу, Мэл поступил в Национальный институт театрального искусства в Сиднее. Первую роль Гибсон сыграл ещё студентом в фильме «Летний город». В 1979 году актёр снялся в фильмах «Тим» и «Безумный Макс», за которые получил несколько наград в различных номинациях. Вскоре после этих съёмок Мэл познакомился, с помощью брачного агентства, со своей будущей женой Робин. Поженились они в 1980 году в Аделаиде. У них родилось две дочери и пятеро сыновей. Мировую известность Гибсону принесла роль во второй части «Безумного Макса» (1981). После этого успеха актёр начал сниматься в Голливуде, где дебютировал в фильме «Баунти» (1984). В начале 1990-х Гибсон основал собственную кинокомпанию Icon Productions, решив попробовать себя в роли режиссёра. Дебютом Гибсона в новом качестве стал фильм «Человек без лица»; вторая режиссёрская работа была успешнее — это была эпическая драма про борьбу шотландцев за независимость под руководством Уильяма Уоллеса «Храброе сердце». Фильм был номинирован на «Оскар» в десяти номинациях и выиграл в пяти, включая премию за лучший фильм года и лучшую режиссуру. В батальных сценах фильма было задействовано до двух тысяч статистов. В 2004 году Гибсон снял фильм «Страсти Христовы», который шокировал общественность крайне жестокими сценами и детальным воссозданием Палестины начала нашей эры методом использования арамейского, латинского и древнееврейского языков, на которых говорили во времена Христа. Картина представляет собой попытку детально воссоздать последние двенадцать часов из жизни Иисуса Христа. «Страсти Христовы» заслужили высокую оценку со стороны папы римского Иоанна Павла II. Несмотря на смешанные отзывы многих критиков, «Страсти Христовы» имел ошеломляющий успех в прокате. В 2006 году вышел ещё один исторический эпос Мэла Гибсона — «Апокалипсис», посвящённый последнему периоду цивилизации майя. Вопреки более ранним собственным заявлениям кинематографиста, фильм не стал его последней режиссёрской работой. Работает над новой картиной По соображениям совести. Гибсону предлагали сыграть роль Одина в первом «Торе» от Marvel Studios, но актер отказался.

    Mel Gibson ist ein US-amerikanischer Schauspieler, Regisseur und Produzent, der in den 1980ern mit Actionfilmen bekannt wurde. Zuletzt machte Mel Gibson mit dem umstrittenen Film “Die Passion Christi” auf sich aufmerksam, in dem Gibson Regie führte. Vita und Werk Als Mel Gibson 12 Jahre alt war, wanderte er mit seinen Eltern und zehn Geschwistern nach Australien aus, wo er ein streng katholisches Gymnasium besuchte. In Australien machte er nach dem Besuch des National Institute of Dramtic Art Filme wie die überaus erfolgreiche Mad Max Trilogie, einer der ersten australischen Box Office Gewinner. Erste Erfolge in den USA Anfang der 80er zog es Mel Gibson nach Hollywood und dort fasste er sofort Fuß. Mit Mrs. Soffel, The River und Die Bounty (1984) feierte er erste Erfolge. 1987 kehrte er nach zweijähriger Pause auf die Leinwand zurück. Die Lethal Weapon-Trilogie mit Danny Glover ließ von nun an zu den Größen Hollywoods zählen. Mit Jodie Foster glänzte er in Maverick, bevor er in Braveheart als Hauptdarsteller, Produzent und Regisseur fungierte. Erfolg als Regisseur Braveheart wurde zu einem riesigen Erfolg, der mit fünf Oscars belohnt wurde, u.a. für die beste Regie und den besten Film. Mel Gibson verfilmte 2004 Die Passion Christi, was ihm heftige Kritiken einbrachte, da der Film rohe Gewaltszenen zeigt und von manchen als antisemitisch eingestuft wird. Der Film entpuppte sich dennoch an den Kinokassen als außerordentlicher Erfolg. Mel Gibsons nächstes erfolgreiches Projekt, der Film Apocalypto, kam im Dezember 2006 in die Kinos und handelt von dem Untergang der Maya Kultur. Wie auch in Die Passion Christi (Aramäisch und Latein) sprechen die Schauspieler in Apocalypto antiken Sprachen (Yucatan Maya), sodass der Film mit Untertiteln versehen werden musste. Die Schauspieler sind bisher unbekannte mexikanische Schauspieler. Karriere als Darsteller Mel Gibson spielt seit seinen ersten Erfolgen in den 1980er Jahren vor allem Rollen in Actionfilmen. Doch seine berühmteste Rolle ist wohl die Hauptrolle in Braveheart (1995) oder in Der Patriot (2000) als gewissenhafter Held in Historienfilmen. Nach diesen beiden Erfolgen versuchte sich Mel Gibson auch in anderen Genres, so in der Romantischen Komödie Was Frauen wollen von Nancy Meyers oder dem Mystery-Science-Fiction-Thriller Signs – Zeichen (2002). Privatleben 1980 heiratete Mel Gibson Robyn Moore, mit der er sieben Kinder hat. Er selbst gehört einer radikalkatholischen Kirche an, die das Prinzip des Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus verfolgt (kein Heil außerhalb dieser Kirche). Diese Kirche macht keinen Hehl aus ihrem Antisemitismus und ihrer Homophobie, weshalb Mel Gibson selbst oft ins Zentrum der öffentlichen Kritik gerückt ist. Nach seinem letzten Ausfall im August 2006, als er sexistische und antisemitische Beleidigungen im Zuge einer Polizeikontrolle machte, ist erneut eine kontroverse Debatte um ihn entbrannt. In mehreren Interviews hat Mel Gibson sich bereits beleidigend gegen Homosexuelle geäußert.

    Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson (Peekskill, New York, 1956. január 3. –) amerikai születésű, kétszeres Oscar és Golden Globe díjas ausztrál színész, filmrendező és producer. Legemlékezetesebb szerepei: Max Rockatansky a Mad Max mozifilmsorozatban, és a Halálos fegyver (Lethal Weapon) sorozat főszerepei. Ő rendezte az Oscar-díjas A rettenthetetlen (Braveheart) című filmet, melynek főszerepét is eljátszotta, valamint ő rendezte a 2004-es A passió (The Passion of the Christ) és a 2006-os Apocalypto című filmet is. Még 1985 februárjában megkapta a People magazin „legszexibb élő férfija” címét. Gibson Peekskillben, New York államban született, Hutton Gibson és Anne Reilly Gibson tíz gyermeke közül a hatodikként. A család még örökbe fogadott egy gyermeket, így a gyermekek száma tizenegyre nőtt. Mel egyik öccse, Donal Gibson szintén színész lett. Noha Gibson hangoztatja amerikai állampolgárságát, tizenkét éves korától (1968) Ausztráliában él. A Jeopardy! című tévéműsorban 1968-ban aratott sikerét követően Gibson apja egész családját Sydneybe költöztette: egyrészt így tiltakozott a vietnámi háború ellen, amely miatt idősebb fiait a besorozás veszélye fenyegette, másrészt úgy gondolta, hogy az amerikai társadalomban történt változások erkölcstelenek. Gibson korai filmjeiben szembeötlő emlékezetes ausztrál akcentusa, pl. Tim, 1979. Karrierje felívelése ugyanebben az évben a Mad Max című akciófilmmel indult. Néhányan kritizálták Mel Gibsont és apját hagyományos katolikus hitük és politikai nézeteik miatt, ami az antiszemitizmus és a holokauszttagadás vádját is rájuk hozta. Miután megalapozta nevét és anyagi helyzetét a Mad Max és a Halálos fegyver sorozattal, Gibson megrendezte és főszereplője volt az Oscar-díjas A rettenthetetlen című filmnek. A film rendezőjeként ő lett a 6. Oscar-díjas színészből lett filmkészítő, megkapva a Legjobb rendezőnek járó szobrot. 2004-ben a nagy sikerű A passió rendezője és producere volt, amely filmben Jézus utolsó óráit vitte vászonra. Mel Gibsont Ausztrália tiszti fokozatú érdemrendjével tüntették ki. 2004-ben a Forbes magazin „a világ legbefolyásosabb sztárjai”-nak listáját is vezette. Karrierje kissé leszállóágba került azután, hogy 2006 júliusában rendőrök ittas vezetésen kapták és a színész részegen dühöngve antiszemita megjegyzéseket tett. (A két évvel korábban bemutatott A passió c. filmje kapcsán is már megfogalmazódtak ilyesfajta kritikák vele szemben.) Később azt mondta, hogy régóta alkoholproblémái vannak.[4] Ezt a botrányt tetézte azzal, hogy négy évvel később akkori orosz származású barátnőjét – akiért hét addigi gyermeke anyját hagyta ott 26 év házasság után – többször tettleg bántalmazta, közös gyermekük jelenlétében is. A színész végül egyéves próbaidőt kapott és kötelező indulatkezelési terápián kellett részt vennie. 2010-ben mutatták be a Sötétség határán című krimijét, amiben öt év után ismét kamera elé állt, de a film nem volt túl sikeres alkotás. A következő filmje a 2011-es A hódkóros, amiben egy plüss hóddal beszélgető menedzsert alakít. 2012-ben a Börtönregény című akciófilmben szerepelt, ezt követte a 2013-as Machete gyilkol és a 2014-es A feláldozhatók 3. . Majd 2016-ban Az utolsó emberig című akciófilmben az apát alakítja, aki a lányát védi.

Gibson, geboren in Peekskill, New York, verhuisde met zijn ouders naar Sydney, Australië toen hij 12 jaar oud was en studeerde later acteren aan het Australian National Institute of Dramatic Art. Na te zijn verschenen in de Mad Max en Lethal Weapon-serie, ging Gibson regisseren en schitteren in het met een Academy Award bekroonde Braveheart. In 2004 regisseerde en produceerde hij The Passion of the Christ, een controversiële maar succesvolle film over de laatste uren uit het leven van Jezus Christus. Buiten zijn carrière hebben opmerkingen van Gibson tot beschuldigingen van homofobie, antisemitisme, racisme en vrouwenhaat geleid; hij heeft de uitspraken eerder toegeschreven aan zijn alcoholisme.

    Pomimo, iż urodził się w Stanach Zjednoczonych to kariera Mela Gibsona jest ściśle związana z Australią, do której wyemigrował wraz z rodzicami w 1968 roku. Tam stawiał pierwsze kroki jako aktor tam też rolą w filmie "Mad Max" zdobył popularność. Wkrótce przekroczyła ona granicę kontynentu i ogarnęła cały świat. Stało się tak za sprawą kolejnego filmu opowiadającego o przygodach Mad Maxa w postapokaliptycznym świecie. Popularność Mela ugruntowała rola Martina Riggsa w obrazie pt. "Zabójcza broń", który doczekał się aż 4 części. Przez długi czas Gibson utożsamiany był głównie jako odtwórca postaci tzw. twardych facetów. Zmieniło się to w roku 1990, kiedy wystąpił jako Hamlet, książę duński, w filmowej wersji szekspirowskiego dramatu, za którą to rolę zebrał bardzo pochlebne recenzje. Kolejne obrazy, jak: "Maverick" czy "Waleczne serce" tylko potwierdziły fakt, iż Gibson jest aktorem o bardzo dużych możliwościach. Mel zajmuje się z powodzeniem również reżyserią. Najlepszy tego dowodem jest Oscar, którego otrzymał w 1995 roku za cudownie zrealizowaną, epicką opowieść o trzynastowiecznym szkockim bohaterze narodowym Williamie Wallace pt. "Waleczne serce". Gibson jest również właścicielem ICON Productions, firmy zajmującej się produkcją filmów, na której koncie znajduje się wiele doskonałych obrazów, jak np. "Wieczna miłość".
