Mel Gibson Talks New Film, Faith: “The sooner you realize there is something bigger” than us, the “easier” life will be

Mel Gibson talked about faith and the ego as he explained that “the sooner” a person “realizes that there is something bigger” than all of us, the “easier” things will be in one’s life.

The 66-year-old actor appeared on “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Friday to discuss his new movie “Father Stu”.

Waters asked Gibson if the film was about human “suffering” and how, if one is grateful for the suffering, one can receive “the grace of God.” Gibson agreed that it was “one of the main themes” of the film before further explaining that we all carry “something”.

“Everyone has a boulder, man,” Gibson said. “And everyone has to drag something around. And of course, something will come and knock you down at some point in your life. Now, later. “

“And how do you handle that, you know?” he added. “How do you not only get up, but find purpose in it? There is a purpose to it all. So, he is looking for that purpose. “


“I think if we deal a lot with ourselves,” the superstar actor continued. “I think if your head is too big, put it that way, it’s an easier target to hit. And if your ego is not so healthy, if you really realize that there is something bigger than you and find a little humility, you are not going to be hit so hard, even if you are hit, because you will understand there is a purpose to it, and you are not most important thing in the world, and that there is a way to deal with these things and be almost grateful for it. “

The director and star of “Braveheart” explained that it has to do with how a person will almost reach a point where he will be “grateful” for the fight.

The “Mad Max” star said that another theme of the film is the fact that “it is never too late to do things”, noting that he has nine children and was not a “perfect parent”. He added that “in some cases he has realized that you can go back and fix things if you lost it the first time”.

“The sooner you realize there is something bigger than all of us, the easier it will be in your life,” Gibson concluded. “A difficult leap for many of us.”

“Father Stu” stars Mark Wahlberg as Father Stuart Long, a boxer who becomes a Catholic priest. A description on IMDb says:

It follows the life of Father Stuart Long, a boxer who became a priest who inspired countless people during his journey from self-destruction to redemption.

In the end, Waters asked Gibson why Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the 94th Oscars after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith shaved head in the middle of a battle with hair loss.

Instead of answering, a voice was heard from the background announcing that it was time for their interview.

As Daily Wire previously reported:

Will Smith announced on Friday that he had resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and admitted that he was “hurt” that he had to do it after “disciplinary proceedings” of the Oscars for his slap on Chris Rock.

“I have responded immediately to the disciplinary hearing of the Academy and I will fully accept any consequences for my behavior,” the 53-year-old actor said in a statement, Deadline reported.

“My actions at the 94th Academy Awards were shocking, painful and unforgivable,” he added. “The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris [Rock], his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all in attendance and the global audience at home. I betrayed the trust of the Academy “.
