Mel Gibson Has a History of Playing Inappropriate Pranks

Back in the nineties, Mel Gibson had a reputation for being a "prankster," a guy who pulled complex fast ones on his female colleagues that, now, in light of his rapidly expanding collection of hate-filled singles, seem to be not so much pranks as, well, warning signs. Like, there was the time he showed up at Jamie Lee Curtis's door in a hockey mask, carrying a knife, and the time he gave Julia Roberts a taxidermied rat, and the time he posed as a stalker to scare director Nancy Meyers. You know, funny, appropriate things like that! [Shine/Yahoo]
