Mel Gibson Selling Getaway Home in Costa Rica

His main purpose of buying it back in 2007 was to avoid paparazzi but now that they have followed him there, he's giving it up.

Mel Gibson has put his Costa Rica estate on the market for $35 million - because it has become too well known. The "Braveheart" star bought the sprawling holiday retreat in 2007 for $25.8 million in a bid to get away from the paparazzi in Hollywood.

However, the troubled actor has decided to sell up because snappers are now following him there, according to the real estate agent in charge of selling the property. Sandra Miller says, "He bought it for a getaway. Now he goes there and paparazzi follow him."

The estate, which is named Hacienda Dorada, includes a seven-bedroom main house and two other homes with two bedrooms each.
