Gary Oldman is apologizing again and this time it is on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." On Thursday, CNN shared about his new apology to his fans. This is all about a recent Playboy interview. Jimmy even told him thank you for not canceling on them and showing up. Some people thought that he would cancel and not come to the show.
Gary said that once he saw things in print he realized how it came out. These remarks were about Jewish people and also about Hollywood. He had nothing to say but apologizing and realized what he did wrong. He knows his fans are Team Oldman and he thinks he let them down.
Here is part of what he said in the interview, "Mel Gibson is in a town that's run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he's actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him -- and doesn't need to feed him anymore because he's got enough dough. But some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn't turned and said, 'That f**king kraut' or 'F**k those Germans,' whatever it is? We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That's what gets me. It's just the sheer hypocrisy of everyone."
He knows that what he said was wrong. Jimmy Kimmel teased that he was glad that someone had to apologize on the show and it wasn't him. Here is a big part of the apology, "Words have meaning, and they carry weight long after you've said them," he said. "I don't condone or excuse the words that I used in any context. ... I am profoundly, profoundly sorry and deeply apologetic. Especially to the fans, they've been so incredible to me, and I really feel that I let them down. ... I'm a public figure, I should be an example and an inspiration. And I'm an a-hole. I'm 56, and I should know better." Hopefully Gary Oldman's fans can forgive him for the interview and he will think twice before he does another one.
