Mel Gibson has definitely fallen out of favor with Hollywood in recent years which explains why you haven’t seen him in any upcoming action movies or even as a cameo on the remake of the series that brought him to fame – Lethal Weapon.
Without getting into too many details, the reason behind Gibson’s Hollywood band seems to be some comments he made that were inappropriate and offensive to some. However, whatever his personal views are, there is no doubt that he is a talented actor. He has won Academy Awards and a Golden Globe award and has been recognized for his acting and for his directorial work.
Much of the reason for that was due to the movie Braveheart which was well received by critics and became quite popular with fans as well. Lately though, Gibson has been making a comeback including winning two Academy Awards and receiving four additional nominations.
