Mel Gibson will never talk about politics, because he doesn't want to ruin the "sense of anonymity" that comes from keeping his alliances private.

The Braveheart star has made a conscious decision over the years never to talk about his political beliefs, and explained the reasons why to The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday.

"Who the hell cares what I think? I'm not an expert – what am I qualified to talk about?" he sighed. "It's alright. It allows you a sense of anonymity so that in your performance you can come out and just be anything; you're not already carrying a lot of baggage. It's partially intentional."

Gibson's remarks come after he was asked about his views on the U.S. presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016 during an interview with Extra, to which he replied: "How is it going to play out? One of them is going to win."
