Gary Oldman quotes
But you see, I have played more good guys than I have played villains.

Gary Oldman
Growing up in a particular neighborhood, growing up in a working-class family, not having much money, all of those things fire you and can give you an edge, can give you an anger.

Gary Oldman
How many movies do you see when you can say this director really knew what film he wanted to make? I can count them on the fingers of one hand.

Gary Oldman
I applaud anything that can take a kid away from a PlayStation or a Gameboy - that is a miracle in itself.

Gary Oldman
I got obsessed with classical music, I got obsessed with Chopin, with playing the piano.

Gary Oldman
I had a guitar when I was 6 or 7, a plastic guitar with the Beatles' faces on it. It would be a collector's item now. It would fetch a hefty sum, I imagine.

Gary Oldman
I hadn't worked for a couple of years so I thought it would be nice to earn some money and pay the bills.

Gary Oldman
I have three kids who like Harry Potter so I was sort of aware of it. You can't really move from it: it's on buses, in stores, it's everywhere. One of my kids has read the books; the other two are too small but they like the movies.

Gary Oldman
I never told my father I loved him before he died, and I have a lot of issues about that. They're all swimming around in my head, in my heart, unresolved, and in a way it felt fitting to dedicate the film to him.

Gary Oldman
I suddenly got obsessive about boxing and Muhammad Ali around the time he was fighting Joe Frazier. I went off and did boxing. I looked incredibly good in the gym.

Gary Oldman
I used to like Batman when I was a kid. I was about five years old and my mum had a 1960s belt - remember those wide belts - and I stuck packets of cigarettes to it and painted it yellow and that was my utility belt. And I had a sheet from crepe paper and a mask and that was it.

Gary Oldman
I wanted to tell this specific story more than I wanted to throw a camera around.

Gary Oldman
I was brought up by my mother and my two sisters, although they're older than me and fled the nest very young, so I was technically raised as an only child, but I was very much loved.

Gary Oldman
I wasn't ever a huge fan of comics. Just not one of those kids, you know?

Gary Oldman
I'm not the best audience for that because I'm not a great science-fiction fan. I just never got off on space ships and space costumes, things like that.
