The Truth About Rosalind Ross Mel Gibson’s 35 Year Younger Girlfriend

While some cannot easily tolerate being in a relationship with someone way older than them, a good number of young people today seem to love the allure that comes with it. The likes of Rosalind Ross must have suffered a lot of backlash for being in a relationship with someone almost double her age, but despite all that, she still sticks to dating famous actor, Mel Gibson.

Ross was just 24 years old when she met Gibson, the American actor, and filmmaker who at that time was 58 years. Not only is Gibson 34 years older, but he was also married and had eight kids before meeting Ross but despite all the differences, the two remained together, sharing great times together. Here are more facts to know about Mel Gibson’s girlfriend, Rosalind Ross.

Who Exactly is Rosalind Ross?

Rosalind Ross is a famous American actress and screenwriter best known as an accomplished equestrian vaulter champion and for her contribution in the production of the television show, Matador. Ross is also applauded for her role in the production of many short films and TV series but her rise to fame had more to do with her relationship with Hollywood senior actor and filmmaker, Mel Colmcille Gerard Gibson than with her career.


Rosalind Ross is a Califonia native with North American ethnicity. She was born on July 5, 1990, in Aptos, California, USA. Ross had her High school education at Palo Alto High School after which she studied and received her BA in creative writing from Emerson College. She also studied at NEO A&M College.

Her Career and Net Worth

In 2004, at the age of 28, Ross participated in and won a bronze medal at the World Vaulting Championship, her first known career. This earned her a place as a member of the Mount Eden Vaulting Club team where she worked until 2006 when she joined the FAME team and won a gold medal at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. She also won the gold in the 2008 and 2010 competitions when she participated in the World Equestrian Games.

It was not until 2014 when Rosalind Ross decided to switch to her writing career. She received her first project as a screenwriter for the Amazon Prime show Matador.
