If Oldman wouldve slammed white Christians or conservatives he would been given an Oscar but alas he offended the wrong crowd and now, he grovels at their feet. Check it out. Here is some of the transcript via Today.com
I have deeply injured and wounded a great many people. From my heart, I am profoundly, profoundly sorry and deeply apologetic, especially to the fans because theyve been so incredible to me and very loyal.
Theyre like Team Oldman. Im a public figure. I should be an example and an inspiration. And Im an a. Im 56 and I should know better! I stepped out of my area of expertise and I just landed both feet in a hornets nest.
ANYTHING for another movie part...Hollywood sucks.
Sometimes you need to be an a-hole, Gary. Being polite and PC is going to be the doom of us all.
why do people apologize for telling the truth?
Unbelievable! Who must he have been threatened by!??!
Perhaps he can win the role of Winston in the next remake of 1984.
He gets his mind set right in the end, too.
Whinge and then lick the hand that beats and feeds you Gary.
I just didn't think he'd grovel so pathetically.
Oldman gave into the PC gods...he said what needed to be said and is the latest Hollywood victim being crucified for it.
He should have told them to shove it—why does he still need Hollywood?
That was fast.
I had sooooo much more respect for him, before this apology.....
Too bad, he used to be one of my favorite actors.
Because they want to keep working in Hollywood I think.
I still love him
But its pretty clear how he really feels & I'm glad he said what he did.
IMO he's one of the best scenery-chewers in the business. Too bad that the business environment is a sewer.
He’s a darn good actor. My daughter was a big fan when she was 12 (now 39).I would not boycott his films.
Disappointing but predictable. Even people with F You money don’t dare speak their minds anymore.
I’m not angry at Oldman. I’m simply sad, maybe even depressed at how oppressive our society has become.
Opie and Anthony do a bit to see how long they can go before a celebrity has to apologize.
I am sure they went after him.
My wife said she felt sad for him. (She had read the original article a few days ago and was reading it to me and the kids, often times stopping skipping parts of the quotes with an “oh - I can’t read that”.
I don’t care for the vulgar language, even though I’ll think it in my head. But I wouldn’t say that to a friend I’m disagreeing with.
Like I told my wife, I don’t feel sad for him. If you’re going to give an interview (as opposed to a hidden tape), saw what you mean and mean what you say. No apologies. And maybe be a little more refined in your language. Although it WAS for Playboy, so I imagine the interviewer may be using some colorful language as well, and perhaps goading them along.
I give up. What did he say that he’s now apologizing for?
Under some systems of communism, party
members who had fallen out of favour with
the political elite were sometimes forced to
undergo “self-criticism” sessions, producing
either written or verbal statements detailing
how they had been ideologically mistaken,
and affirming their new belief in the party
line. Self-criticism, however, did not
guarantee political rehabilitation , and often
offenders were still expelled from the Party,
or in some cases even executed.
Google it and read the Page-Six or Variety write-ups on it. Basically giving very specific F-bombed versions of descriptions of Nancy Pelosi, hypocracy of PC and Hollywood re treatment of Mel Gibson & Alec Baldwin compared to Jon Stewart/Bill Maher.
Funniest thing I read in Page-Six article is that ‘Doug Urbanski’ is Oldman’s manager and co-producer. I think it’s THE Doug Urbanski that subs for Rush. He’s mentioned he’s a Hollywood producer. Maybe why Oldman speaks with unvarnished frankness.
