Mel Gibson has talked his way out of trouble before and it looks like he may have to do it again. Yes, that Married Mad Mel in the photo at left, embracing a young beauty recently in Costa Rica.
And yes, there are more RadarOnline.com exclusive photos of the two cozy together in the water.
The Braveheart star has a Costa Rican hideaway, where he took Britney Spears months ago to help her relax, but on March 4th, Mel was snapped there getting really up close and personal with a young bikini-clad beauty.
“It was near sunset. The two of them were playing in the surf, ducking into waves,” said an eyewitness.
“Then Mel sort of took hold of her and she came willingly into his arms. They put their arms around each other and kissed pretty passionately for about four or five seconds.
“The two of them then wandered down the beach and popped in and out of the surf, occasionally touching each other.”
Mel, 52, owns a nearly 300 acre spread on the Pacific Ocean shores of Barrigona Beach in the Guanacaste area of Costa Rica.
The actor spent the early part of March there, reportedly with several of his sons, the sons’ girlfriends and an assortment of other guests. But his wife of 28 years, Robyn, 52, was nowhere to be seen.
“Obviously, Mel was having his own brand of fun mixed in with the fun he was having with his family and friends,” said the eyewitness.
Mel has had to quash speculation about his love life before. Last September, reports surfaced that he was becoming close with a glamorous Russian musician known only as Oksana while filming his new movie Edge of Darkness in Boston.
The slender beauty was spotted on the set three days in a row, and on one occasion emerging from Mel’s private trailer.
Oksana was described by Mel’s reps as a business colleague, “one of the artists on Mel’s recording label, Icon.”
But, hey, doesn’t this beauty look a lot like her?
