What women want? Mel Gibson's 26-year-old son, Milo Gibson, stole the spotlight from his famous dad as they hit the town together in Beverly Hills on Monday, October 24.
The Expendables actor, 60, and Milo attended the afterparty for Hacksaw Ridge. Mel (who won the best director Oscar in 1996 for Braveheart) directed the war drama, and it marks Milo's acting debut. He can next be seen in The Tribes of Palos Verdes opposite Jennifer Garner.
The look-alike father-and-son duo took photos and mingled with Milo's costars Andrew Garfield, Teresa Palmer and Vince Vaughn during the night out. Milo looked identical to his dad when he was a young heartthrob, as the pair both showed off their scruffy beards, the same big grin and ice-blue eyes.
Mel opened up about directing the film during an interview with Us Weekly. "This is an independent film, so it was the time allotted. The schedule and the budget were smaller than most films of this nature, but it has a big look, and I think it was the challenge to get all the combat scenes in a short amount of time and have to be as realistic as they came out to be," he said on Monday night. "This really hit me in the heart and I think this is a story worth telling."
Milo is one of seven kids Mel and his ex-wife, former dental nurse Robyn Moore Gibson, have. They are also parents of Hannah, 36, Christian, 34, Edward, 34, William, 31, Louis, 28, and Thomas, 17. Mel shares daughter Lucia, 6, with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva too.
As previously reported, Mel is adding to his brood. In September, Us Weekly confirmed that he is expecting his ninth child, his first with girlfriend Rosalind Ross. Mel began dating the 26-year-old in 2014.
Mel has a lot to be grateful for. Earlier this month, the star — who battled alcoholism and was charged with drunk driving in 2006 — revealed that he's celebrating 10 years of sobriety. "Sobriety helps you refocus everything," he told Us at the premiere. "Believe me, it doesn’t do any good to have a snort."
