Gary Oldman Goes On Lengthy Rant Defending Mel Gibson And Alec Baldwin Against Critical "Hypocrites"
The 56 year-old actor tells Playboy Magazine: "It's just the sheer hypocrisy of everyone, that we all stand on this thing going, 'Isn't that shocking?'"
It seems Gary Oldman had a lot of things to get off his chest!
The British actor used a recent interview with Playboy Magazine to defend the publically scrutinized actors Alec Baldwin and Mel Gibson against the "hypocrites" of Hollywood.
Gibson was slammed by the public and his showbiz peers after his ex-love, Oksana Grigorieva, recorded one of their phone calls that included the actor making racial slurs and threats.
This incident occurred four years after Gibson shouted anti-Semitic remarks to a police officer who apprehended him during a DUI arrest.
"I don't know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we've all said those things," Oldman said to the magazine. "We're all f-----g hypocrites. That's what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the word n----r or that fucking J--? I'm being brutally honest here. It's the hypocrisy of it that drives me crazy."
Alec Baldwin drew a large amount of criticism for using an anti-gay slur against a photographer who tried to take a snap of his wife and child. The '30 Rock' star was caught on video branding a member of the paparazzi a "c**ksucking f*g."
"Alec (Baldwin) calling someone an F-- in the street while he's pissed off coming out of his building because they won't leave him alone. I don't blame him," Oldman added.
"So they persecute. 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," the 56 year-old's rant continued.
Concluding, "He's like an outcast, a leper, you know? But some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn't turned and said, "That f---- kraut" or "F--- 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, that we all stand on this thing going, 'Isn't that shocking?'"
Will Oldman now be subjected to a backlash for these controversial words?
