Teresa Palmer: Mel Gibson is 'the best'

Teresa Palmer thinks Mel Gibson is "the best".

The 30-year-old actress stars in the actor's latest directorial venture 'Hacksaw Ridge', and has said she loved working alongside the 60-year-old star as he is "jovial" and has a "beautiful childlike nature".

She told Who magazine: "He's the best. He is so jovial and he has this beautiful childlike nature and this infectious quality that just draws you in. I mean, he does not see himself on a pedestal at all, even though people try to put him on one."

This isn't the first time the 'Warm Bodies' actress - who is weeks away from welcoming her second child with husband Mark Webber - has praised the 'Braveheart' actor, as she recently gushed about his ability to "engage" with people.

She said: "I have worked with a lot of actors who will go and do their thing and then at lunchtime they typically go into their trailer and have an assistant get them lunch or whatever."

"Mel would sit and eat with the whole cast, the whole crew, knew everyone's name. We had a crew of 200 plus. Constantly be engaging with people."

Meanwhile Teresa - who already has two-year-old son Bodhi Rain - and her 36-year-old husband Mark recently revealed they would be calling their second child, who is also expected to be a boy, Forest.

Mark posted on Instagram: "Forest, we're so excited to meet you. #comingsoon, #3boyz and #proudpapa. (sic)".

And even with a second baby on the way, the 'Point Break' actress isn't planning on stopping any time soon, as she's admitted she plans on expanding her family to include a whopping six children.

She said: "Everyone who knows me knows I want six children."
