Mel Gibson has blamed the pressure of making his new epic APOCALYPTO for his return to drinking. The actor/director hit the headlines this summer (06) when he was stopped by police in California after a night of boozing. And, speaking on Spanish news show AQUI Y AHORA last night (30NOV06), Gibson revealed his ambitious new movie led him back to the bottle. When a host asks if the "stress and driving yourself to a limit of knowing what you could do with this film perhaps led you back to drinking," Gibson replies, "Absolutely, I think there's a lot of pressures."
