Mel Gibson starred in and directed Braveheart, the story of a fighter during the first war for Scottish independence. Gibson, long rumored to be homophobic, came under fire for the effeminate portrayal of England's Prince Edward. Responding to the calls for a boycott, Gibson said, “'I'm just trying to respond to history. You can cite other examples — Alexander the Great, for example, who conquered the entire world, was also a homosexual. But this story isn't about Alexander the Great. It's about Edward II.”
