After what was surely a miserable day of getting skewered by almost every media outlet (including this one), a visibly shaken Gary Oldman kept his previously-scheduled appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and used it as an opportunity to apologize for his comments made to Playboy Magazine.
“I said some things that were poorly-considered,” he said, “and once I had seen it in print I could see that it was offensive, insensitive, pernicious, and ill-informed. Words have meaning and they carry weight. And they carry on long after you’ve said them. I don’t condone or excuse the words that I used in any context. I just basically shouldn’t have used them, but I did and I have deeply injured and wounded a great many people.”
Oldman went on to further chastise himself and apologize for his remarks, and we’re not sure about you, but that is good enough for us. The guy screwed up, has fully owned up to it, articulated why what he said came out the way it did, and it’s time to move on.
