Mel Gibson London, May 16 (IANS) Veteran actor Mel Gibson took advice from Ray Winstone for his accent used in Jodie Foster’s comedy movie “The Beaver”.

Gibson plays a clinically depressed man in “The Beaver” and uses a beaver puppet with a British accent to communicate in the film. However director Jodie Foster revealed that 55-year-old modelled his voice on his “Edge of Darkness” co-star Winston.

“Mel did a movie ‘Edge of Darkness’ with Ray and he kept calling him during the shoot and saying, ‘How would I say this?’ It was very specifically Ray Winstone and sort of Michael Caine on speed. I’d love to take the credit for Mel’s performances but he was amazing from day one,” quoted Gibson as saying.
