Gaby Hoffmann reveals Mel Gibson 'made her cry'

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Former child actress Gaby Hoffmann sat down with HuffPo Live where she dished on who she feels are the most difficult men in the industry to work with. The Now and Then actress admitted that the man who tops her list is none other than Mel Gibson.

“I think I happened to work with sort of a bunch of slightly difficult male directors when I was a kid," she explained in her interview, as quoted by Us Weekly. "I've since worked with lots of male directors that I love, so I no longer see the distinction gender-wise."

"I don't think John Hughes liked me. And the other one...was Mel Gibson, and I think we can all agree that's going to be tough for anybody,” she informed.

Hoffmann and Gibson worked together in the Lethal Weapon actor's directorial debut, The Man Without a Face. The 31-year-old actress recalls that while working with the famously temperamental actor at the ripe age of 11, he screamed at her and made her cry. “He screamed at me,” she explained. “Oh, God, he really screamed at me. He just started cursing and screaming at me."

Hoffmann has since moved on from Gibson’s reign of terror, working alongside Zach Grenier and Katherine Waterston in Manhattan Romance, set for release this fall.
