The Wanted met Mel Gibson. Well, actually, it’s Mel “Effing” Gibson, according to their tweet on the matter. The boys tweeted a photo of the entire band posing with the volatile, controversy magnet actor. It’s actually “Mel Effing Gibson” who looks like he is starstruck, wearing an ear-to-ear grin as he poses with the boys, and not the other way around.

Gibson, who made more than a few headlines in the past month after (another) audio tape of him screaming obscenities at the top of his lungs was released, appears to be laid back and in a good mood. Maybe he just got done listening to ‘Lightning’ or ‘Chasing the Sun’ or ‘Glad You Came’ and it lifted his spirits. If anything has the capacity to lighten the mood, it’s any of the the Wanted’s songs.

The Wanted and Gibson are posing under a sign that reads “Backstage” but it’s not yet clear where, when or how they were in the same location. But one thing is certain and that’s the fact that they took advantage of the photo opp.

If you glance at the photo on the quick, you’d think that the Wanted added a sixth member.
