Mel Gibson - Co-star: 'Gibson Has Quieted Down'

Mel Gibson's How I Spent My Summer Vacation co-star Scott Cohen has defended his pal amid allegations the movie icon is prone to violent and offensive outbursts, insisting he's the ultimate, calm professional.
Cohen admits he was nervous about working with the Aussie star following his recent bad press - and the leaked ferocious phone calls he reportedly fired off at ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva - but Gibson quickly put him at ease.
He tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "He's quieted down... I found Mel to be really giving and really generous. When I first met him his energy was so intense. What comes out of his eyes is so magnetic and so fierce, you're like, 'Oh my God!'
"But he was nice, just joking around. He gave the director (Adrian Grunberg) an opportunity to direct his first movie, and Mel was there all the time kind of helping him with shots. I found him to be incredibly educating."
