Mel Gibson is tamping down the Marlboro he's about to light - so much for reports that he's quit smoking.

"You can always start up again in a heartbeat," the heartthrob tells The Associated Press.And he has - at least three times.

"They say the fourth time is lucky," Gibson says.

Composer Alan Menken recalls one of those times, when Gibson was recording the voice of John Smith for the animated movie "Pocahontas."

"The first time Mel came in to work, he'd just given up smoking the day before," Menken says. "Man, he was on edge, but he still did a pretty good job."
