Mel Gibson's road has been long and winding. At least the part of the journey featuring anger management courses for the last year is over. The question now is whether the black-listed actor can keep things together long enough to repair his personal life, his public perception, and his professional image.
Mel Gibson is now out of treatment and on probation for two years. All of this started when he pled no-contest after allegedly attacking his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. Mel claimed that he slapped Oksana; she claims that he punched her with a closed fist resulting in broken veneer on her tooth.
No matter what happened, Gibson has had to own-up to the fact that he has issues with his temper. The question is whether Mel Gibson can repair his reputation damaged by both anti-Semitic statements and now domestic violence. Will the year of classes help him repair his relationship with his children and his family, let alone allow the actor-director to rehabilitate his own career? For that, the jury is still out.
