After starring in different movies and making box-office hit films, Mel Gibson's total net worth is in jaw-dropping figures.

The 58 year-old actor has become famous after starring in different films that also became a financial success. He is often praised for his incredible performances that he deliver in his films, thus making him gain more recognitions. Aside from the great fame that the actor achieved, Mel Gibson's net worth has also soar as high as his success.

Winning an Academy Award and a Golden Globe signifies that the actor is indeed one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood. Before entering the film industry, he first worked on stage. Being educated in the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney, the actor has been trained and prepared for the screen acting.

While still a student, he made his film debut in the 1977 film "Summer City" wherein he was paid for about $400. After graduation, he then played the title character in the film "Mad Max", which eventually signaled Mel Gibson's net worth to rise. He then continue to star in different films and eventually made a huge name in Hollywood.

Aside from acting, Gibson also ventured into directing and producing films. In 1989, he formed the Icon Productions with partner Bruce Davey. The production company has also produced numerous small films.

It was in 1993 that Gibson made his directorial debut with The man Without A Face. Two years after, he directed the famous 1995 film, Braveheart wherein he won two Academy Awards including the Best Director. He then released the controversial film, The Passion of the Christ in 2004 which co-wrote, co-produced and directed. The movie alone has eventually led Mel Gibson's net worth to much millions as the movie became the highest grossing rated R film of all time with $370,782,930 in U.S. box office sales.

As the award-winning actor's estimated worth reached up to $850 million, a sudden twist has shook his finances. With the divorce settlement that the actor made with his ex-wife Robyn Moore, the actor lost nearly half of his wealth. With no pre-nup agreement with Moore, whom he was married for nearly 30 years, was entitled about half of his millions.

He then did set a new record for the most expensive Hollywood divorce. With Mel Gibson's new net worth of about $425 million, the actor is still entitled with many properties including mansions, cars, jet and even a private island in the Pacific.
