Actress Jodie Foster has said Mel Gibson is 'one of the most loved people in the business'.

The pair are starring together in new film The Beaver and she admitted that working with Mel was 'amazing'.

Gibson's ex recently dropped a domestic violence claim against him, which was related to their custody battle.

Speaking to ET, she said: "I think it's no secret that he's really one of the most loved people in the business, professionally."

She added: "He has seen the film, he loves the movie. He's doing well, you know, he's at an interesting moment in his life and he's really being as supportive as he can and, you know, clapping from the sidelines."
