Personal Quote:

(On The Year of Living Dangerously (1982)) "I didn't necessarily see my role as a great challenge. My character was, like the film suggests, a puppet. And I went with that. It wasn't some star thing, even though they advertised it that way." See more »

Trivia:

Along with Rolf Harris and Clive James, Gibson publicly supported keeping Queen Elizabeth II as head of state in an Australian poll in 1999. See more »
