Gibson blasts historians for 'selective' versions of past

By unknown | Dec 11, 2006 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

Actor-turned-director Mel Gibson has blasted European historians for their "selective" portrait of the past.

The star, whose new movie Apocalypto charts the fall of the central American Mayan empire in the ninth century, has criticised historians for ignoring the story of the world before colonisation.

He said: "There is always this conceit among European historians that history only began when they arrived, which of course is not true.

"I thought it would be interesting to tell a story that was not from the New World point of view."

l Meanwhile, Gibson has denied reports that he is planning a return to acting soon.

The Braveheart star, who has abandoned acting to concentrate on his directorial career, admitted he would even be happy if he was not working at all.

He said: "I just have not felt the pressing desire to hop in front of the camera and tap dance.

"It is not that I do not want to do it, it is just that it has not been on the menu for me for a while.

"When I was younger I used to think, boy, what would happen if I did not work again?

"Gee whizz, that would be terrible, but I have since realised it is not terrible at all." Wenn
