HOLLYWOOD star Mel Gibson has revealed that Braveheart haunted his dreams for years before he agreed to direct and star in the hit movie.
Gibson claims he kept putting the movie off because he was busy working on other projects.
However, the actor admitted:

"I’d be lying in bed constructing shot lists for it before I went to sleep.
“It took a couple of years for the penny to drop.”

When Gibson finally got round to making the William Wallace epic, it earned him Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director.
A 20th-anniversary box set is due to be released this month and Gibson is more than happy with the film's growth.

Gibson said:

“My sense of it is that it’s aged well. It still works and it doesn’t look outmoded.
“In fact, it is kind of different. We did things that were kind of amazing.”
