Mel Gibson, 65, admits that parenting his four-year-old ‘little Viking’ son during the pandemic is a ‘handful’

Mel Gibson recovered from a severe bout of COVID-19 last year.

The 65-year-old opened up about battling the virus and what it has been like parenting his four-year-old ‘little Viking’ son Lars during the unprecedented lockdown. 

Mel’s candid chat came while promoting his new project Boss Level alongside co-star Frank Grillo during an appearance with Extra’s Terri Seymour.

‘It doesn’t feel like anything else you have ever had,’ Mel said of getting COVID-19. 

Gibson contracted the virus last April, spent a week in the hospital and was treated with an anti-viral medication.

The director has been spending the pandemic at his home with partner Rosalind Ross and their four-year-old son Lars. 

‘We’re doing all right.’ Mel joked, ‘I still get to the bathroom by myself.’ 

'It doesn't feel like anything else you have ever had,' Mel said of getting COVID-19.

‘Well, it’s good, because you get to know him pretty well,’ the Hacksaw Ridge director said of parenting during the pandemic.

Adding: ‘But having a four-year-old, a four-year-old boy who is a little Viking, it’s just a handful anyway… no matter if it’s a pandemic, no matter if he’s at home, no matter if he’s raiding distant shores, it doesn’t matter.’

Mel certainly knows a thing or two about being a dad as the Australian actor has nine children in total from three relationships: Hannah Gibson, 41, Christian Gibson Edward Gibson, 38, William Gibson, 36, Louis Gibson, 33, Milo Gibson, 31, Thomas Gibson, 22, Lucia Gibson, 11, and Lars Gibson, four.

He is currently promoting his new Hulu project Boss Level which is about a former Special Forces agent stuck in a time loop. 

Extra’s Terri Seymour asked Mel, ‘If you could relive any of your days over and over again, which day would you pick?’ 

‘Any mistake I’ve ever made,’ he said in response. ‘I’d have to go through the litany of bad decisions and mistakes and then grade them and find the worst one and do that.’

Some of the What Women Want actor’s worst decisions have been very publicly documented in the media. 

In 2006, Mel’s now infamous anti-semetic tirade made headlines when he was arrested for driving under the influence following a night of drinking at Moonshadows in Malibu.

Later, in 2010, Gibson was accused of domestic violence by his then-partner Oksana Grigorieva and he subsequently pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor battery charge. 

Extra's Terri Seymour asked Mel what day he would want to re-live:  'Any mistake I've ever made,' he said in response. 'I'd have to go through the litany of bad decisions and mistakes and then grade them and find the worst one and do that.' (Pictured in his 2011 mugshot for battery)
