Gary Oldman - Gary Oldman Shuns Showbiz Lifestyle
Actor Gary Oldman shuns the trappings of showbiz because he prefers his "very normal, very ordinary life".
The veteran British star's career dates back to the 1980s, but despite a top role in the Harry Potter franchise, Oldman prefers to keep himself out of the spotlight.
He tells Esquire magazine, "I've never really courted it (fame). I still don't have a publicist. If I'm in a film, you have an obligation to promote it, I'll do as much as I can.
"Overall I enjoy a certain anonymity. I live a very normal, very ordinary life."
And Oldman insists his actress sister Maureen, who appears in British soap opera EastEnders, is recognised more often than himself.
He adds, "I would think Maureen (is recognised more). It's weird it comes in waves."
