Another bizarre Mel Gibson moment.

On Monday, he had an odd exchange with paparazzi in Los Angeles, trying to film them in the back of a car on his camera phone, TMZ reports.

Sporting a bushy mustache (a la onetime Quaker Oats spokesman Wilford Brimley) and donning thick black glasses and a ball cap, he first approached the car, asking one of the celeb shutterbugs to roll down his window.

"What's the matter?" he asked. "Got nothing better to do?"

After rolling down his window, the photographer then hurled a bunch of questions at the 54-year-old actor, who is currently embroiled in an ugly custody battle with ex Oksana Grigorieva, mother of his 9-month-old daughter Lucia.

"I just wondered if you really hit Oksana," he asked, adding: "Do you think you'll ever make a movie in Hollywood again?"

He also asked Gibson if he'd ever work with "anybody of any race or any creed or sexual orientation" again, given that Gibson made numerous racial slurs during phone conversations with Grigorieva, 40, that were leaked this summer.

Known for his wild temper, Gibson surprisingly played it cool. "You got a lot of dialogue, don't you?" he asked.

The photographer replied, "Do you have anything to say for yourself?"

"Not to you," Gibson shot back. "I just wanted to film you. Thanks for following us around."

Before walking away, he asked, "What's it like sniffing other people's laundry?"
