Mel Gibson An Angry Drunk?

Mel Gibson’s brother speaks to The Times about their drinking issues and refers to them both as “angry drunks”.

Chris said: “Mel and I are angry drunks but he hasn’t touched a drink for nearly four-and-a-half years. Mel is doing it his way.”

Chris added: “I have spent my entire life in Mel’s shadow. Mel was creatively brilliant. Even when you had something clever to say he would always say something more clever. I always ended up getting pushed into the background and it had an impact on me.”

Chris claims that it was due to this brotherly rivalry that he was lead to find comfort in food and alcohol,which he says turned him into a “mean, drunk, fat b******”.
