Mel Gibson takes along a lot of baggage when he hits the road to make a movie - his wife and six kids. "I couldn't concentrate otherwise," the actor said. "I get more done when they're around because I know where everyone is and I can relax," Gibson said in the June 4 issue of People magazine. The youngest in the Gibson brood is 5 months and the oldest is 9. Gibson, 34, who stars with Goldie Hawn in the romantic comedy "Bird on a Wire," said his 5-year-old son, Will, wants to follow in his acting footsteps. Gibson said he asked the boy why and Will responded, "`So I can take your place when you die.' He was quite serious," Gibson said. "It was rather sweet and cracked me up."
