London, (ANI): Mel Gibson, who has recently gained notoriety for
allegedly calling a journalist "a**hole" during a TV interview, has
confessed that he has a "short fuse." The Braveheart star had lost
his cool when American TV presenter Dean Richards quizzed him over
his drinking past and his infamous anti-semitic rant.
Gibson"s rep had later rubbished all claims, saying the actor"s
remark was directed towards him because he was making silly faces
behind the camera. However, Gibson, 54, reputation for losing his
temper couldn"t leave him when he faced the French media. On Canal
Le Grand Journal, a panelist Mahloud Achour sarcastically asked
him: "Did you come prepared with French curse words for French
journalists?" Gibson replied: "Non!" And then admitted he had a
temper problem."I mean no. It usually comes out in English if I''m
angry. I have a short fuse. I''m trying to work on it," the Daily
Star quoted him, as saying.
