Mel Gibson admits he gets angry quickly.

The actor called WGN-TV reporter Dean Richards an a**ehole last month following an interview where he was grilled about his 2006 arrest for drink-driving. 

Now Mel, 54, has tried to play down the gaffe. 

‘I have a short fuse,’ he tells French programme Le Grand Journal. ‘I’m trying to work on it.’

Mel‘s new movie Edge Of Darkness is out now.
