Sure, it’s an ongoing joke that most people read ‘Playboy’ just for the articles, but the latest interview with actor Gary Oldman exposed more of actor than any Playboy Bunny centerfold could possibly accomplish.

In the ‘Playboy’ interview, Oldman defends Mel Gibson’s infamous anti-semitic tirade from his 2006 DUI arrest. He also defends Alec Baldwin’s use of homophobic remarks. The interview makes Oldman come across as, well, the nation’s collective stick-in-the mud great-uncle they’re embarrassed to bring out in public.

Mel Gibson’s July 2006 DUI arrest was the celebrity DUI arrest heard around the world. The Aussie actor was pulled over for speeding and the arresting officer found an open container of alcohol in his vehicle. During his arrest, Gibson erupted into a tirade, freaking out that his wife at the time (Robyn Denise Moore) was going to leave him after this incident. (Moore and Gibson did end up separating shortly after his DUI arrest.)

Gibson then went on to shout to the arresting officer, “F*cking Jews… the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world. Are you a Jew?”

After his arrest report was made public, Gibson did issue public apologies and sought help for issues with alcoholism. However, Gibson continued to spark controversy for allegedly using antisemitic imagery in the 2004 film ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and making racist remarks toward his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva and one of his employees in 2010.

In his ‘Playboy’ interview, Gary Oldman launched into the topic about how “political correctness is crap”, defending Mel Gibson’s vile rant.

“I think it’s like, taking a f*cking joke. Get over it … No one can take a joke anymore,” Oldman stated. “I don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f*cking hypocrites.”

Are we, Gary Oldman? Are we?

Oldman continued, “That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the world n*gger or that f*cking Jew? I’m being brutally honest here…”

Oldman stated that Mel Gibson is an “outcast” and a “leper” now because Hollywood is a “town run by Jews”.

This definitely makes one wonder, what Oldman sober during this interview?

Oldman is appearing in the upcoming “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”.
