High-profile Hollywood ladykiller Mel Gibson has been caught playing his favorite game again, in a bid to figure out “what women want.”
Fresh from the brutal rupture with his Russian girlfriend and mother of his eighth child, Oksana Grigorieva, reports have emerged that Gibson has been spotted kissing an Afghan actress who is a dead ringer for his ex.
The long-haired brunette was born in Kabul but fled her native country right after Soviet troops were sent to Afghanistan in what turned out to be a nine-year conflict.
Azita Ghanizada made her name as the star of the popular US sci-fi TV-series Alphas, where she plays a former CIA linguist with a paranormal ability to take one of her five senses to supernatural levels.

Some wonder whether the Oscar-winning actor notorious for his racist and sexist rants is currently testing his own senses, trying to get over his Russian ex-girlfriend by seeing a woman strongly resembling her.
Certainly, Hollywood’s “enfant terrible” seems to have a weakness for brunettes. According to TMZ, the 31-year-old Afghan beauty and the 55-year-old Don Juan recently shared dinner at the posh L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Earlier this year, a US court ordered Gibson to pay $750,000 to the Russian singer and pianist as a settlement in a custody case over their two-year-old daughter Lucia. Grigorieva accused the Australian star of striking her during a fight in January 2010 and brought a civil case against him.
