Mel Gibson Has Earplug Solution

Mel Gibson wears earplugs so his baby daughter can't wake him at night.

The 'What Women Want' actor admits he allows three-month-old Lucia's mother Oksana Grigorieva soothe her when she wakes up in the early hours of the morning because he need his sleep.

He told US talk show host Jay Leno: "There's shortcuts, I guess. Earplugs, you know!

"I will be honest, I would say that her mother does the lion's share of that work, but you know, I support her."

The Hollywood actor also revealed he has given up smoking, and is finding the loss of his lifetime habit very tough.

He said: "It's been 18 days. It's not funny! I mean, serious, you bury some serious anger.

"Most people do it when they're five, they get their security blanket taken away.

"I did at 54 and I'd been smoking 45 years. There's a lot of anger underneath it."

Talking about why he was giving up cigarettes now, Mel - who is a father of eight - added: "Well, apart from carrying the garbage up to the top of the driveway and wheezing... I have a three-month-old daughter and someday I want to play tennis with her."
