After the Anti-Defamation League said his first apology wasn’t enough, Gary Oldman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to issue yet another apology, even going so far as to call himself an “a–hole.” Oldman appeared to be quite shaken by the whole ordeal throughout his statement.

“It was an article I did with Playboy and I said some things that were poorly considered. Once I saw it in print, I saw that it was insensitive, pernicious and ill-informed. I am a public figure, I should be an example and inspiration and I am an a–hole. I am 56. I should know better. I extend my apology and my love and best wishes to my fan base.”

Later Oldman added, “I just think that we’re public figures and sometimes we’re looked upon, asked to be social or cultural or political commentators and, I can’t speak for other people, but I’m not, clearly. I stepped out of my area of expertise and I just landed both feet in a hornet’s nest. It came over in a certain way and for that, I’m deeply sorry.”
