As one of the best actors of his generation, Gary Oldman has shown us many faces and personalities in the roles he has played. Few, however, have gotten a glimpse of the true Gary Oldman that was shown to us in a recent Playboy Magazine interview in which he eviscerated the political correctness of Hollywood liberalism as well as his feelings of Nancy Pelosi.

I loved his character in THE PROFESSIONAL and his character on FRIENDS where he and “Joey” kept spitting in each other’s faces.

I am SO GLAD that being politically correct is FINALLY getting tiring

that was a fad that lasted way too long and caused way too much damage

This is just the beginning of the end, but at least its starting

He was great in that. Almost everything he’s done he has been great. But nothing will top his description of Pelosi: “a c*nt, and I’ll go better, a fu*king useless c*nt”
Doesn’t get much more real than that.

He could play Pelosi in a movie, just dig up that great make-up from “Dracula.”

I agree. He was a freaky Dracula, before vampires got all glittery and gay.

I liked him as “jackie Flannigan” in “State Of Grace” with Ed Harris, Sean Penn and Robin Wright. Superb performance by Oldman.... and Wright was HOT!

Oldman is a terrific actor. He’s one of those guys who can undergo total transformation into the character he’s playing. Absolutely loved him in Dracula.

I was watching a bluray of the old film "Leon: The Professional" last night and was amazed at the magnificent performance of Gary Oldman.

It was a particularly unsympathetic part that Oldman played in this film. The real test of a great actor is how they handle such a role... it's easy playing the hero. Oldman was entirely believable playing a sociopathic DEA agent.

Sid and Nancy was GREAT!! Will never forget the final scene of him dancing with the little kids to K C and the sunshine band.

Priceless.

Oh yes loved that scene. He was a better Sid Vicious than Sid Vicious.

Oldman in the Batman movies as Gordon really showed how intrepid he was. I can’t believe the quiet dignity, maturity, and righteousness he displayed in that role, after some villainous roles in the 90s. Just an outstanding actor.

Ditto that, and as the bad guy leader in Air Force One (hey, shoot me...I love action flicks).

Yeah, the funky dude with the half of his shaved! Oldman is always the bad guy you almost like and might have a beer with?

I heard that too, but for some reason I had trouble getting past the glossies. And then it happened, the thing that liberals are still waiting for, I grew up!

Oldman can pull off some really diverse roles.

He's really fun to watch when he goes off the reservation. Two performances that come to mind is the cop in "The Professional," and Zorg in "The Fifth Element."

I had forgotten about Dracula. Reeves nearly ruined the movie. But Oldman was awesome.
