The corona virus does not stop at massive Hollywood stars. In most cases, the news about it quickly sees the light of day. But actor Mel Gibson had caught the virus without the diagnosis being publicized over a period of several months. Now there are details of what the 64-year-old went through because of the virus.
While COVID-19 has been spreading since the beginning of the year, Hollywood stars have responded to the global pandemic in different ways. Some initially did not take the reports very seriously and did not want to comply with the new hygiene regulations. Others such as Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger shared videos on the Internet in which they made the public aware of the importance of the measures. James McAvoy and other celebrities even donated the necessary material and money to aid organizations to help fight Corona. And then of course there are also stars like Tom Hanks who got infected and have since recovered.
Mel Gibson was also one of those who tested positive for the coronavirus. The Lethal Weapon actor received the terrifying diagnosis this April. After spending some time in the hospital, he was finally tested again several times. In these cases, the result was negative and the star was finally able to recover. As Variety reports, Gibson was in Los Angeles while he was being treated.
With his role in the film Braveheart Gibson was able to rise in the world of Hollywood stars. The classic was released in 1995 and has won numerous prizes and awards. Since then, Gibson has also worked as a director. For example, he worked on the blockbuster Hacksaw Ridge: The decision behind the camera. In the future, Gibson will appear again in the upcoming film Force Of Nature as an actor.
