  • Well, so Gary Oldman doesn’t give a fuck anymore, huh? The veteran “Harry Potter” and “Dark Knight” actor gave an interview to Playboy in which he weighed in on “12 Years A Slave” (“At the Oscars, if you didn’t vote for [it] you were a racist.”), Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitism and racism (“We’ve all said those things … We’re all fucking hypocrites”), Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death (“Maybe he looked in the mirror and always saw that very pale sort of fat kid”). Well, he has sure proved that he hates political correctness. [Playboy, Guardian UK]
