"Acting is like lying. The art of lying well. I'm paid to tell elaborate lies." - Mel Gibson
Back in 1985, Tina Turner was the biggest artist in the world. She had huge success with her comeback album, Private Dancer, and co-starred with Mel Gibson in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, which was a box office smash. Tina, of course, played a queen.
In an exclusive interview with BET.com, Mel Gibson reveals how the queen of rock and soul tried to save the actor from ruining his life.
"I was a wild boy, I used to get loaded," Mel Gibson said. "She sent me a photograph of myself one time and she said, 'Please don't mess this up.' Because she was worried about me. I was touched by that, that went in somewhere."
Mel's latest film, Daddy's Home 2, is in theaters tomorrow.
