  • An actress named Violet Kowal, who claims she had an affair with Mel Gibson while he was filming the upcoming comedy The Beaver, says that Gibson's behavior was somewhat strange: "Mel was always very nervous and he would switch between acting like a nervous man with loads on his mind to being like a little kid. When I went round to his Malibu home he got out these little beaver hand puppets from the film he was doing with Jodie Foster. He would talk to me through the puppets saying, ‘Hello, how are you ­today?' and play around with them before we had sex. He acted like a child. It was pretty weird. And before we had sex he always seemed so nervous. He'd have to have a cigarette to calm his nerves." Kowal also claims that Gibson injects growth hormones into his stomach and that on January 6, the day he allegedly hit his ex, Oksana Grigorieva, he "called me up from a blocked number so I wouldn't know it was him. I picked up the call and he screamed at me ‘Listen you bitch, do you know who this is. Don't f*** with me or I will make you suffer." [Mirror]
