Mel Gibson interviewed by US TV host Dean RichardsMel Gibson's publicist has laughed off reports the Braveheart star swore at a US TV presenter following a recent interview, insisting the actor was actually aiming the crude remark at him.

A video of Mel Gibson allegedly calling host Dean Richards on Chicago-based station WGN an "a**hole" (you can watch the video below) following a satellite chat has become an internet sensation since it was aired last Friday.

But the Hollywood actor's spokesperson, Alan Nierob, is adamant the remark was aimed at him, rather than the Dean Richards because he had been "pulling faces" at Gibson during the interview.
