Mel Gibson was hospitalized with coronavirus in April | Movie


Actor Mel Gibson spent a week in hospital after contracting coronavirus earlier this year, his representatives have confirmed. Speaking to the Daily Telegraph Australia, the spokesperson said: “He tested positive in April and spent a week in hospital. He was treated with the medicine Remdesivir while in hospital and has tested negative several times since then as well as positive for antibodies.News of the hospitalization of Gibson, 64, emerges a month after the actor hit back at Winona Ryder’s allegations of anti-Semitism and homophobia. A representative for Gibson denied the allegations and accused Ryder of lying “about it over ten years ago, when she spoke to the press, and has lied about it now.”

Ryder responded by refusing to withdraw the allegations and wishing Gibson “good luck on this trip of a lifetime.”

Gibson’s recent filmography has been patchy. He achieved commercial success with a role as Mark Wahlberg’s father in the 2017 sequel, Daddy’s Home 2, and received critical acclaim for his role in the police brutality thriller Dragged Across Concrete (2018).

But a passionate project on the origins of the Oxford English Dictionary, The Professor and the Madman, was mired in a legal dispute for three years before a small-scale release in 2019, to generally lukewarm reviews. Gibson and the original director of the film have reneged on the final product.

Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Marianne Faithfull and Olga Kurylenko are other prominent players who have contracted coronavirus.
