Mel Gibson， known for his high profile production work on films such as Brave heart and Passion of the Christ， was voted by ''Empire'' magazine as being one of the top 100 sexiest stars in film history. Mel is currently married to Robyn Moore， together they have 7 children. Although born in America Mel's family moved to Australia after his father won as a contestant on Jeopardy.
Gibson was born in Peekskill， New York， the sixth of ten children born to Hutton and the late Ann Gibson， who also adopted one child， bringing the total number of children in the family to 11.
Although he maintained his United States citizenship， he was raised in Australia from the age of twelve. Following a victory on the TV game show Jeopardy！， Gibson's father， Hutton， moved his family to Australia in 1968 in protest of the Vietnam War for which his elder sons were potentially at risk for being drafted， and also because he believed that changes in American society were immoral.
Some people have attacked his father Hutton Gibson for religious views that he says are based on Catholic Traditionalism， and on his political opinions. As a Roman Catholic who prefers the Tridentine Mass， Mel Gibson has donated money to finance the construction of a traditional style Catholic chapel in Malibu， California.
Gibson was born with a physical anomaly called “Horseshoe kidney”。 His two kidneys are fused at the base into a U shape. This fusion anomaly occurs in about one of every 400 people.
Although at one point Gibson possessed an Australian accent that was so thick that his voice was dubbed in the US release of Mad Max， in the early 1990s he began to lose the accent after having lived in the United States for over a decade. He now has a fully American accent.
