Mel Gibson on the set

In an interview with Joan Lunden, Mel was asked how he managed directing and acting in the film Braveheart. He said, "You have to go in with a plan. You can deviate from that, though -- it's just a jumping off point."

He wandered around reading a small, ancient-looking, leather-bound tome entitled "Making an Epic" during the filming. As no such book exists in reality, he must have gone to the trouble of getting the gold lettered binding made specially to amuse his film crew.
