13. Mel Gibson
There’ve been so many scandals regarding Mel Gibson in the past ten years, it’s hard not to get the impression that this actor/director is just one mean-spirited person. And then there was the infamous falling out with his ex-girlfriend, Oksana, who accused him of physical and verbal abuse, with phone calls she ended up recording and leaking to the press so that they could see what kind of a person Mel really was. And while nobody should defend the actions of a man who doesn’t know how to respect the mother of his children, it was said at the time that Oksana was strongly trying to push Mel’s buttons to get a certain reaction out of him. But even aside from that, Gibson is one of the most charitable people in Hollywood, having donated tens of millions to endless charities throughout the years.
