Mel Gibson Gets Booed At Cannes (VIDEO)

Mel Gibson got a cool welcome at Cannes as he as he arrived for a photocall for 'The Beaver.'

Earlier this week at the movie's premiere - where funny enough he received a standing ovation - Mel told reporters how he got into character to play the suicidally depressed lead.

"I faked it," he said. "Hey, I don't know. It doesn't bear too much analysis."
