Birthday: Jan 03, 1956

Birthplace: Peekskill, New York, USA

A gifted and rather complicated performer who became one of the biggest stars in the world, only to struggle with legal and anger issues, actor-director Mel Gibson rode the wave of his 20-plus years of popularity to become one of the industry's most bankable stars. After finding fame in Australia with only his second film, "Mad Max" (1979), Gibson vaulted onto the international scene with the superior sequel, "The Road Warrior" (1981). Following an excellent performance in "The Year of Living Dangerously" (1982), Gibson staked his claim in Hollywood by starring in "Lethal Weapon" (1987), a highly successful buddy comedy by which all others would be measured. Gibson actively sought to usurp his action hero image with a wider range of roles, including playing the titular "Hamlet" (1990) and a reclusive burn victim in "The Man without a Face" (1993). He transformed himself from action star to Oscar-winning director with the historical epic "Braveheart" (1995) and sparked controversy for his "The Passion of the Christ" (2003), an intense look at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Following a handful of small acting roles, Gibson's comeback film, World War II drama "Hacksaw Ridge" (2016), received positive reviews and a handful of Academy award nominations, including one for Best Director, completing his rise and fall and rise story.

They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance. I'm sure the people in group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way. For them, the situation is a fifty-fifty. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they're on their own. And that fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there's a whole lot of people in group number one. When they see those fourteen lights, they're looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever's going to happen, there will be someone there to help them. And that fills them with hope. See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?

William Wallace says: Every man dies, not every man truly lives.

William Wallace says: It's all for nothing if you don't have freedom.
