Mel Gibson has put her scandalous past behind

Los Angeles: Actor-director Mel Gibson does not want to talk about his past troubles as he feels he has come a long way since then.

The actor, who hit the headlines for his anti-Semitic rants during his drunk driving arrest in 2006, says the incident is behind him.

The actor was in news again after Gary Oldman defended him in a controversial interview, only to apologise later. "It`s behind me; it`s an 8-year-old story. It keeps coming up like a rerun, but I`ve dealt with it and I`ve dealt with it responsibly and I`ve worked on myself for anything I am culpable for. All the necessary mea culpas have been made copious times, so for this question to keep coming up, it`s kind of like... "I`m sorry they feel that way, but I`ve done what I need to do," Gibson said.

The 58-year-old actor will next be seen in `Expendables 3`.
