Controversial actor Mel Gibson has cut the asking price on his Malibu estate by another 9 percent to $15 million and hired new agents to sell it.

The 6,600-square-foot home sits on five acres in a canyon off Carbon Mesa Road and has exposed wood beams, large fireplaces, and hardwood floors, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Gibson first listed the secluded home in 2017 for $17.5 million. He cut the price to $16.5 million last February.

Damon Skelton and Brit Elizondo of Compass had the listing at the time. Now, Sandro Dazzan of the Agency and Hilton & Hyland’s Branden Williams have the listing.

The home has five bedrooms and four bathrooms and is reportedly filled with religious artwork. Gibson is a staunch Christian. A buyer receives rights to a membership of the La Costa Beach and Tennis Club, which costs around $100,000 on top of annual dues.

The Academy Award-winning actor purchased the home about a decade ago from actors David Duchovny and Tea Leoni. At the time, Gibson was just coming out of a four-year period without work following a 2006 drunk driving incident in which he launched into an anti-Semitic tirade.

Despite some other incidents, including the use of hateful language to refer to black people, Gibson has found acceptance again in Hollywood, particularly since his award-winning 2016 World War II film “Hacksaw Ridge.”

In 2017, Gibson sold a Sherman Oaks home for a loss, but his real estate troubles likely don’t bother him much. He’s one of Hollywood’s wealthiest actors, with an estimated net worth of around $425 million. [LAT]Dennis Lynch
