Mel Gibson tries and fails to disguise his large bald patch as he leaves Hollywood event
He is rumoured to have had a hair transplant several years ago, but unfortunately for Mel Gibson, he is still balding.
The actor attempted to cover a large bare patch on the back of his head with a makeshift comb over on Wednesday.
However the fact that the 57-year-old has lost a lot of his once luscious locks was clear for all to see.
The Braveheart star was spotted leaving popular celebrity haunt Bootsy Bellows where he was attending an event.
Despite his bald spot, Mel was in a great mood as he left the Hollywood hotspot.
He happily stopped to chat to and sign autographs for fans who were waiting outside
The Scottish star was looking dapper in a midnight blue suit, which he wore with a white shirt, cornflower blue tie and two-tone black and grey brogues.
Mel was at Bootsy Bellows for the Stand Up For Gus benefit, where he joined a slew of stars.
The charity being supported was set up by actor Jason Patric, 47, after he was stripped of his parental rights over his son, Gus, four, who was conceived after he donated sperm to an ex-girlfriend.
Matt Damon, Nikki Reed, Keifer Sutherland and Chelsea Handler were among the other stars in attendance to lend their support to the cause.
Patric writes on the charity website: ‘Almost four years ago, I was blessed with a baby boy named Gus. For the first 3 years of his childhood I was a consistent physical and emotional presence in his life. My world was better in every way with Gus in it…I loved being a father.
‘But that all changed in an instant. I was stripped of my rights as a parent. An outdated statute meant for sperm donors was applied to me simply because Gus’ mother and I were unmarried and used IVF to conceive.
‘Not being able to see my son for almost a year, has been the worst pain that I can imagine. Except, when I think about little Gus, who has no idea what happened to his dada…one day his dada was there and the next he was gone.’
