Mel Gibson Dishes on Newborn Son: ‘He’s Eating Like a Little Pig'

Mel Gibson sat down with “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at the annual Oscar nominees luncheon at the Beverly Hilton, where he chatted about his newborn son and his nomination for his work on “Hacksaw Ridge.”

The director and actor gushed over his ninth child, son Lars, telling Mario, “He great, he’s growing, he’s eating like a little pig and is doing just great.” Mel went on to say, “He even smiles. Two weeks old, he has a grin going, so something’s funny — I don’t know what.”

This is the first time Gibson has been nominated for an Oscar since winning the award for directing “Braveheart” in 1996. He smiled and said, “Twenty years ago is the last time I did one of the lunches.”
