A property he owns in Malibu, California, is currently on the market at $11.8 million.

The private 500-acre beachfront-and-jungle holiday home in Costa Rica first came on the market in 2010 for us$35 million. The hill-top property's main residence is a two-story hacienda-style house with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, a large courtyard and a swimming pool. There are also two smaller guest cottages, each with two bedrooms, a veranda, vaulted ceilings, kitchen and private swimming pool. The property includes a Balinese entertaining house with no walls, a restaurant and another small cottage in the jungle.

Gibson has seven children from his long marriage which ended in divorce in 2009. He also has one child with Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva, with whom he had an acrimonious breakup. Gibson reportedly used the Costa Rican home during his legal troubles with Grigorieva. Gibson was also photographed with her there in 2009, shortly before his wife filed for divorce.

The star and his large extended family had used the estate frequently before the troubles in his personal life. He reportedly retreated to the Costa Rica holiday home during his legal troubles with Grigorieva. Gibson was also photographed with her there in 2009, shortly before his wife filed for divorce.

Over the years the actor has owned lavish properties in Malibu, Australia, Montana, Connecticut, and even a private island in Fiji.

Since his legal troubles and a well-publicized anti-Semitic remarks made during his drunk driving arrest, Gibson's acting roles have diminished. He had a starring role in the Jodie Foster film "The Beaver" last year, and his next project is "Get the Gringo," which he also co-wrote and is due out later this year.
