Gibson: 'I'm A Manic Depressive'
Hollywood actor Mel Gibson suffers from manic depression, according to a leaked report.
An interview with the Australian star - who hit the headlines for using anti-Semitic language during a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest near his home in Malibu, California in 2006 - has surfaced which quotes the actor admitting he is a "manic depressive".
The documentary, filmed in 2002 by The Patriot star's old school friend Sally MCKenzie, is about Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art's acting class of 1977 - which Gibson attended. It's due to air on Australian TV network ABC2 on 25 May (08).
Gibson is reported to say, "I had really good highs but some very low lows. I found out recently I'm manic depressive."
His publicist was not immediately available for comment.
