Gary Oldman Apologizes (Again) For Playboy Interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”
The “Immortal Beloved” actor explained, "It was an article I did with Playboy and I said some things that were poorly considered."
"Once I saw it in print, I saw that it was insensitive, pernicious and ill-informed. I am a public figure, I should be an example and inspiration and I am an a*shole. I am 56. I should know better. I extend my apology and my love and best wishes to my fan base."
Gary also noted, “Words have meaning and they carry weight. And they carry on long after you've said them. I don't condone or excuse the words that I used in any context. I just basically shouldn't have used them, but I did and I have injured and wounded a great many people."
"I appreciate you having me here and extending your hospitality and to put me in this seat once again. And it gives me the opportunity to say to those people that I, from my heart, I am profoundly, profoundly sorry—especially to the fans as they have been so incredible to me and loyal. I call them Team Oldman. I feel like I let them down."
Previously, Oldman had apologized to the Anti-Defamation League, but they didn’t seem convinced. "At this point, we are not satisfied with what we received. His apology is insufficient and not satisfactory,” said a statement from the ADL.
