Once upon a time he was the talk of the town, receiving accolades and awards, now he is still the talk of the town but its more kind of "Blimey, that Mel Gibsons a bit of an nutter, isnt he?" or "have you heard what old mad Max Mel the mad man is being mad about now?" and so on, allegedly and according to some unnamed industry insiders.
It's got to the point now where it looks as if poor old Mel will have to hop on the next Qantas out of Hollywood and get back to the bush to find some succour, as he isn't wanted in movies any more.
Word on the street and info highway is that he has been dropped from the upcoming sequel to "The Hangover" as other cast members just didn't want him around, with his mumbling anti-semetic bollocks, dribbling into his beard and smelling of wee, allegedly.
Mel has recently been seen wandering West Hollywood, pushing a shopping cart full of empty cans and screaming at anyone who dare approach his cart, also allegedly.
There is even rumours that he has been caught on film wearing a tin foil hat and talking about aliens probing his brain, but in retaliation to these slurs, it was pointed out by mad Mary the cat addict, his new publicist, that this was for a film that Mel was in a few years back called "Signs".
Yeah, right Mel, OK mate, we believe you, ha ha ha films? What ever will he come up with next.
