Gary Oldman Apologizes for Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin Remarks: 'I'm an A-Hole' - VIDEO


On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, actor Gary Oldman apologized for statements he made to Playboy magazine during a rant about political correctness gone overboard in Hollywood in which he defended Mel Gibson's racist and anti-Semitic remarks and Alec Baldwin's homophobic slurs.

Said Oldman:

"I said some things that were poorly considered. And once I had seen it in print, I could see that it was offensive, insensitive, pernicious and ill-informed...From my heart, I am profoundly, profoundly sorry...I should be an example and an inspiration, and I'm an a-hole. And I'm 56, and I should know better."

Epic Advertisement For Gay Portuguese Film Festival Glams Up 'Braveheart': VIDEO


Mel Gibson and his warriors may have worn a lot of makeup in "Braveheart," but you've never seen a bunch of Scots glammed up quite like this! 

The Queer Lisboa Film Festival, running from September 20-28th, has produced a loud and proud advertisement, titled "Pride Heart," that parodies Gibson's famous pre-battle speech. But this time, there are a lot more feathers. 

Buzzfeed reports:

Every September, Lisbon hosts Queer Lisboa, “the sole Portuguese Film Festival dedicated exclusively to screening gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual themed films.”

And every year, for several years now, Queer Lisboa comes out with an epic promo video ad.

Last year, it was “The Death of the Gay Cliche.” In 2010, it was “Mister Pink,” a brilliant redo of the famous scene from Reservoir Dogs.

Now this year, William Wallace gradually gets more flamboyant (as do his charges) as he gets into his pride speech.

Watch the funny, moving, and seriously epic ad, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ricky Gervais Can't Find a Man Who's Seen Jodie Foster's Beaver: VIDEO


One of Ricky Gervais' more notable digs in his arguably less cutting opening monologue this year came at the expense of Jodie Foster's reluctance to talk about her sexuality, and the film she starred in with Mel Gibson.

Said Gervais:

"No smut or innuendo. And I’m not to libel anyone. And I must not mention Mel Gibson this year. Not his private life, his politics, his recent films or especially not Jodie Foster’s Beaver. I haven’t seen it myself. I’ve spoken to a lot of guys – they haven’t seen it either but that doesn’t mean it’s not good.”

Of course Gervais wasn't outing Foster, who seemed to love the joke. She pretty much told the world who's seen her beaver four years ago.

Mel Gibson's Gay Brother Breaks Silence, Says Mel's No Homophobe


Mel Gibson has an adopted, estranged gay brother according to the Sunday Times of Australia. Andrew Gibson gives the paper an interview defending Mel's past homophobic statements.

Andrew says that when Mel said in a 1991 interview, "With this look, who's going to think I'm gay? I don't lend myself to that type of confusion. Do I look like a homosexual? Do I talk like them? Do I move like them?" he didn't mean anything offensive.

Said Andrew: "He's a straight man and he was illustrating that fact. In the same way a gay man wouldn't want to have sex with a woman. He never meant to upset anyone. I have never once heard anything anti-gay come out of his mouth....(Coming out) was one of the most terrifying things I have ever done. I was 22. When I told my dad he cried and blamed himself he felt he had done something wrong. That broke my heart and I told him it wasn't my fault. I think they all suspected. I was at a family dinner at Aria restaurant when I told Mel. He just said, 'It's not my choice, but I love you and you're my brother'."

He tells the paper that he has spent more than 10 years in "tumoil" with his family but has since made contact.

"I distanced myself and they didn't come after me. It was a very difficult time. They didn't like my choice of boyfriends they wanted me to go out with a Country Road queen and I like strong, dangerous men."

Movies: Bradley Cooper Stars in 'Limitless' and Michael Fassbender Doesn't Appear to Have Any (Limits)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 
You should totally celebrate by finding JANE EYRE this weekend and falling in love with Irish/German Michael Fassbender along with Jane and the rest of the world. While it's possibly true that the sudden collective Fassboner is more publicist command than organic development, it couldn't happen to a better actor. He's the real deal. (See also: Hunger, Fish Tank, Inglourious Basterds for an extraordinarily rangey, complicated star-is-born quadruple.) Fassbender was recently seen filming sex scenes in public [NSFW] for the sex-addiction drama SHAME as if to taunt (or reward?) his millions of new admirers. That future film, which co-stars Carey Mulligan, will reunite him with his Hunger director Steve McQueen. I can't recommend their first collaboration highly enough as their telling of the Irish hunger prison strike in Thatcher era Britain is visceral take-no-prisoners stuff in both direction and performance. Hunger is the kind of film you should only watch with all the lights off and your phone turned off and your hands from the remote control; distractions will ruin its hypnotic commitment.

Bradley Cooper headlines LIMITLESS as a writer who makes a miraculous about face once he ingests a super drug, becoming his perfect self.

It's a neat parallel with Cooper's own backstory that he's been selling that his career took a while to take off because he "wasn't f**kable enough". Problem long since solved? MORE AFTER THE JUMP...
