Gary Oldman Blasts Hollywood And Defends Gibson, Baldwin

Gary Oldman isn't making friends and influencing people right now.

In Playboy's for July/August, the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes actor went off on a bizarre rant defending Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin while using some pretty disrespectful, profanity-filled language.

Contributing editor David Hochman's interview for the men's magazine is pretty detailed for anyone looking for "the Meryl Streep of dudes." 

The interview started out easy enough. 

Hochman tries to find some element where Oldman enjoys a career that most people would envy, but the Dracula star adamantly denies the statement of being all-time cinematic powerhouse with a dismissive "I guess I shouldn’t complain.”



When asked, "What's your view of the future? Are you optimistic about where society is heading?" Gary's reply is succinct. "I think we’re up shit creek without a paddle or a compass." 

Oops. 

He doesn’t appear to be open or available to the press—almost derisive while admitting he was too approachable in the beginning. Passionately, he announces how Hollywood manages to ”create little monsters” through fame and money.

Even as he admits that Demi Moore’s call out of his own bad behavior during The Scarlet Letter helped him. “I remain grateful. This past March was 17 years since I last had a drink.” He does “worry about kids behind the wheel of a car more than anything” when high in public.

At the mention of Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s overdose, Dark Knight’s Commissioner Gordon acknowledges you can’t save someone who doesn’t want to be saved. “You have to want to do it for yourself” because “you put the drink or the drug before everything else.” 



Tangentially related, “we all hide and try to be so politically correct” seems to be an Oldman mantra.

Of course, then he goes on a rant about how Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson are just misunderstood and “we’re all f---- hypocrites” for getting angry at their honesty.

“The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n----- or that f------ Jew? I’m being brutally honest here. It’s the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy.”

Oldman tells Hochman, “You have to edit and cut half of what I’ve said, because it’s going to make me sound like a bigot.” The journalist dodges the question if the man sounds angry with “readers will have to form their own opinions.”



TMZ’s “How Dare Gary Oldman Attack Me ... I NEVER Used the N-Word” holds the exclusive answers to the cop in question, James Mee.

The former deputy absolutely denies using derogatory and racist language. “Jews have been persecuted and put down over the years. Why would I, as a Jew, do that to other races?"

And what does Mee thinks of Oldman? “I feel sorry for people that need to say things about other people in order to justify themselves."

Oldman’s comments are stirring up controversy and press for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes premiere, but will it pay off?

We’ll see on July 11.
