Mel Gibson Made Thanksgiving Shopping With Rosalind Ross, His Girlfriend
Mel Gibson did not look too thrilled as paparazzi swarmed him, while he went grocery shopping with Rosalind Ross, his girlfriend.
The 61-year-old, who has been a part of the Hollywood industry for decades and best known for his role as Max Rockatansky in the Mad Max action series, was looking a little bit upset as he walked alongside his 27-year-old girlfriend.
Mel and Rosalind have been dating for three years. They even have a son together named Lars who was born in January 2017.
Mel Gibson has certainly made a name for himself in Hollywood. In 1981, he starred in the World War I drama, Gallipoli, a role which earned him the award for 'The Best Actor' at the Australian Film Institute.
In 1995, he attained major recognition when he produced, directed, and starred in Braveheart. He won a Golden Globe Award, Academy Award for the Best Director and the Best Picture for the project.
In 2004, he directed and produced another movie titled The Passion of The Christ, which went on to be a major box office hit. His successful movies include Apocalypto, Leather Weapon, and Hacksaw Ridge amongst others.
Mel Gibson's complicated love life
Before Gibson met the former champion equestrian vaulter and writer, he had tried to find happiness with a few other women.
In 1980, Gibson got married to Robyn Denis Moore, a dental nurse. At the time, the actor was still struggling to find his footing in the film industry. The couple has one daughter, Hannah who was born the same year. They also have six sons together.
The pair ended up splitting after 26 years of marriage (in 2006). Gibson would later reveal that Robyn decided to separate the day after he was arrested for drunk driving in Malibu.
Gibson then went on to date Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva. The duo made their first red carpet appearance in 2009, and Grigorieva gave birth to their daughter, Lucia later that year. In 2010, the pair split.
Grigorieva filed a restraining order against Gibson to keep him away from her and their child. Gibson later obtained a restraining order against Grigorieva in response to domestic violence claims.
Some activists alleged that Gibson showed patterns of racism and sexism and urged people to boycott his films. Robyn, his estranged ex-wife, however, took to his defense saying she was never abused by the actor. In March 2011, Gibson agreed to plead a no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge.
"I've never treated anyone badly or in a discriminatory way based on their gender, race, religion or sexuality – period," he said while clearing the air in April.
In the subsequent years, Gibson was busy settling the divorce and custody case with Grigorieva. It was not until 2014 that he met and began a relationship with Rosalind Ross. She gave birth to their first child, and Gibson's ninth on January 20th, 2017.
While his relationship journey has been anything but smooth, we can only hope that this time around, the actor has found true and lasting love with the young and beautiful Rosalind Ross.
