12 12. Mel Gibson
While his divorce from former wife Oksana ate up a tremendous amount of his riches, Gibson is currently worth an estimated $425 million dollars – not too shabby. He’s been involved in numerous aspects of the Hollywood world as an actor, film maker, and
screenwriter. His acclaimed roles include everything from the Mad Max series to Lethal Weapon, historical films such as Braveheart and The Patriot and romantic comedies like What Women Want. Even films for which he served as merely producer and writer, not an actor, such as The Passion of the Christ, were smash hits. However, in the past few years he’s been more known for his abysmal behaviour. Whether he’s making racially offensive comments or yelling on speaker phones, he’s not ageing into a successful and well regarded actor and producer.
