Mel Colmcille Gerard Gibson was born in Peekskill, New York on the 3rd of January, 1956.

One of Gibson’s younger brothers, Donal, is also an actor. His first name is derived from Saint Mel, a fifth-century Irish saint, and founder of Gibson’s mother’s native diocese, Ardagh.

Gibson is also an Australian permanent resident. He was educated by members of the Congregation of Christian Brothers at St Leo’s Catholic College in New South Wales during his years in school.

Mel Gibson Personal Life

Mel Gibson’s first wife

Mel Gibson’s net worth was $850 million, but after divorce from his first wife, Robyn Moore, she took her half.

On December 24, 2011, the Mad Max star finalized his public divorce with Robyn Moore. According to legal reports, under California state, Mel Gibson’s ex-wife was entitled to half of his assets since they didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement back in 1980 when they got married.

The couple was married for 26 years of marriage, but five years before the divorce, they split when Gibson was detained for driving under the influence in Malibu. Albeit, Robyn Moore only filed for divorce, stating “irreconcilable differences” in April 2009 after he had publicly stepped out with a pregnant Oksana Grigorieva, with whom he has a daughter now.

The baby girl is an additional child for Mel since he had seven kids with his first wife.

The richest celeb is Oprah Winfrey, whose fortune is estimated at $2.4 billion. Yet, Mel Gibson’s net worth is also impressive, as he is in the top 10 list of the wealthiest actors in the world.

What do you think about Mel Gibson’s first wife? Was Robyn Moore right to take half of his assets after the divorce? Admittedly, the Hollywood actor is somewhat controversial and troublesome, was taking away half of the fortune? She’s really lucky, huh!

Mel Gibson Career

Gibson started his film career in 1977 when he starred in his first movie ‘I Never Promised You A Rose Garden’. He did another low-budget film named ‘Summer City’ and a television show called ‘The Sullivans’. All these movies were released in 1977.

His breakthrough to the film world opened in 1979 after his portrayal of Max Rockatansky in the film ‘Mad Max’.

In 1981, Gibson returned with ‘Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior’, which made him an international star. After that, he starred in movies such as ‘The Year of Living Dangerously’, ‘The River’ and ‘The Bounty’.

In 1985, Gibson received his first million dollar salary with the ‘Mad Max’ third sequel. He also became a famous movie icon when he starred in ‘Lethal Weapon’ which became a huge hit. A few years later he changed genres, with films such as ‘Hamlet’, Bird on a Wire’ and ‘Air America’.

At the beginning of the 90s, Gibson made his directorial debut in the movie ‘The Man Without a Face’. He surpassed everybody’s expectations and the movie went on to win two Oscars.

The year 2000 was financially good for him. Three of his films ‘The Patriot’, ‘Chicken Run’ and ‘What Women Want’ grossed over $100 million dollars.

Since then, his movies have sold millions worldwide and he has starred in movies such as ‘Edge of Darkness’, ‘Machete Kills’ and ‘The Expendables 3’.

Investments and Real Estate

Gibson has invested in multiple properties in Malibu, Costa Rica, Fiji, and throughout Australia. He sold his Kiewa Valley farm for $6 million in December 2004. Later that same month, he bought his own private island, Mago Island in Fiji, for $15 million. In April 2007, Gibson bought a 400-acre ranch in Costa Rica for the hefty sum of $26 million. He has tried to sell this mansion at various points for as much as $35 million. He also owned a Tudor-style estate in Connecticut which he sold in July 2007 for $40 million (he originally bought it in 1994 for $9 million.)

In 2008 Mel paid $11.5 million for a 5.5-acre home in Malibu. The sellers were then-married couple David Duchovny and Tea Leoni. Mel listed this home for sale at one point for $17.5 million. He listed it again in Marc 2019 for $14.5 million.

Summary

Mel Gibson has been a great actor for many decades and there’s no news that he is a very talented actor. Alongside many other stars, he has been in successful films such as ‘Mad Max’, ‘Braveheart’, ‘Signs’ and ‘Blood Father’.
