Mel Gibson, who won both the Best Director and Best Actor Oscars for Braveheart in 1996, faced heavy criticism after using hate speeches for a while. Gibson, one of the leading names in Hollywood, made the remarks at an event held in Glasgow for Lethal Weapon.
Gibson, who stated that he was not interested in superhero narratives, explained that he received three offers for the role of Batman, but each time he turned down these offers. Gibson also announced that he was not accepting the role of James Bond. Noting that he was offered the iconic role after Roger Moore, who last portrayed James Bond in 1985, Gibson said he turned down the offer because he thought he was 26 at the time and wasn’t ready to take on the role.
“I DON’T REGRET IT”
Gibson also noted that he turned down Barry Levinson’s Rain Man, which was released in 1988, and declined Ridley Scott’s historical epic Gladiator to star in The Patriot.
The 66-year-old actor also said he has no regrets for rejecting those roles.
