Mel Gibson makes barefoot supermarket run in Malibu

Mel Gibson is enduring the Southern California heat in his own way.

On Monday, the 63-year-old actor made a quick run to his neighborhood's Whole Foods supermarket in Malibu in the most relaxed way possible — donning a simple black cap pulled low over his face, leaving his signature white beard exposed, a black collared shirt and blue shorts.

Missing from Gibson’s ensemble were his shoes, as he meandered through the parking lot of the grocery store blackening the soles of his feet  while cradling a brown paper bag of his selections.

The "Braveheart" star also appeared heftier than what fans would normally recognize him to be, though the extra girth is likely the result of Gibson packing on pounds for his role of Santa Clause in the upcoming film “Fatman.”
