Heart-throb Mel Gibson dating Hollywood body double

MEL Gibson reportedly has a new girlfriend.

The 56-year-old actor was seen cosying up to stuntwoman Ashley Cusate during an intimate dinner date at sushi restaurant Nobu in Malibu on Sunday.

Ashley has performed dangerous stunts as a body double for the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Penelope Cruz and Anne Hathaway and has also dabbled in acting.

The brunette beauty has been dating the 'Lethal Weapon' star for over a month and has already been introduced to his family, according to gossip website TMZ.

A source added: "They love her and are convinced she's gonna be around for a long, long time."

The pair only had eyes for each other as they giggled and chatted over the weekend, and Mel had his arm draped around the 38-year-old actress, who is also a brown belt in karate.

Ashley's acting credits include 'Baywatch', 'Cop Land' and 'Alias'.

Mel is thought to have ended a brief romance with Italian singer Nadia Lanfranconi in favour of Ashley.

The pair had been seen on several dates together in recent weeks.

The actor - who split from Oksana Grigorieva in 2010 in the midst allegations of domestic violence - has just sold his Malibu mansion for $9.3 million.
