Hollywood star Mel Gibson is ashamed of his first ever onscreen kiss - because it was with another man in a cheap movie.

The Braveheart hunk made SUMMER CITY, his first feature film, during his graduation year at Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art.

But he complains he never received the $450 (GBP250) he was promised for performing the embarrassing movie scene with Australian Steve Bisley.

Gibson says, "It was a cheap, nasty movie that was cranked out in three weeks on a tiny budget."

The pair have also worked together in the stage production of THE HOSTAGE and later in the first Mad Max movie.
