Panti Bliss got caught in an awkward situation with Mel Gibson last night

Panti Bliss got caught in a slightly awkward situation with Mel Gibson at the Dublin Fringe Festival.

The Hollywood actor is in the city while filming for his new film, The Professor and the Madman.

One of the most talked about shows of the festival, the Mayo native took to the stage as MC with actors performing an assortment of acts from comedy to drama to music.

Panti took to her Twitter to tell her followers what the major a-list celeb was about to see – and let’s just say, it’s outrageously random!

“Mel Gibson is at Riot Dublin and he’s just about to see a naked Jesus in cling-film get beaten by ten people with pool noodles,” Panti wrote.

Other big names that are fans of the Queen of Ireland include supermodel and singer Grace Jones, who announced on stage that she watched and loved the gay rights activist’s film.
