Mel Gibson and The Beaver director Jodie Foster hit the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. We gotta say ... Mel certainly cleans up nicely. After yesterday's awkward shirtless incident on the balcony of his hotel, we were beginning to wonder how Mr. Gibson was going to pull it together.
The audience who watched the first screening of The Beaver in Cannes gave a 10-minute standing ovation when it was over, according to Deadline.
The Beaver opens wide on May 20, and despite Mel's personal drama, we'll see if the flick can crawl its way into becoming a box office success.
See Mel and Jodie facing the flashbulbs together ... after the jump.
Looks like Jodie's got Mel's back ... and his hand!
