Gary Oldman

Gary Leonard OldmanGary Leonard Oldman (born 21 March 1958) is an English actor and filmmaker who found fame in roles such as Sid Vicious in Sid & Nancy, Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK and Count Dracula in Dracula. Throughout his career, Oldman has frequently been cast as over-the-top villains and morally corrupt characters, becoming well-known to audiences as the primary antagonist of such films as True Romance, Léon, Air Force One, The Fifth Element and The Contender. In recent years he is more recognisable as heroic characters such as Sirius Black in the Harry Potter film series and James Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s Batman film series. Acclaimed for his on-screen diversity, Oldman has been referred to as an “actor’s actor.” In addition to leading and central supporting roles in big-budget Hollywood films, he has frequently acted in independent films.
Oldman directed, produced, and wrote the award-winning Nil by Mouth, a film partially based on his own childhood. Among other accolades, Oldman received an Emmy Award nomination for his work on Friends in 2001, and has won two BAFTA Awards and a Saturn Award, having been nominated for three BAFTA Awards and three Saturn Awards in total. Several of his performances—notably those in Sid & Nancy and The Contender—brought forth predictions of an Academy Award nomination, which never materialised; The Guardian has called Oldman “arguably the best actor never Oscar-nominated. He was, however, nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance in The Contender.
Despite numerous lead and supporting roles in major Hollywood productions, Oldman is intensely private with his personal life and is known for his stance on celebrity and the ideals of Hollywood, once stating that “being famous, that’s a whole other career. And I haven’t got any energy for it.” Gary Oldman nudeOldman was born and brought up in London, England, but moved to the United States in the early 1990s. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California with his young family. He was known for his problems with alcohol during the early 1990s. After a string of alcohol-fuelled debacles he checked himself into Marworth treatment facility in Waverly, Pennsylvania, for alcoholism treatment in 1993. In subsequent interviews Oldman acknowledged his problems with alcohol and called himself a “recovering” alcoholic on a 2001 interview with Charlie Rose. In 2001, former wife Donya Fiorentino claimed that Oldman had a drug habit and abused her, a claim which was investigated by the family courts, child custody evaluator, the police, and Los Angeles city attorney. Oldman was awarded legal custody of their children; Fiorentino was granted short court-monitored visits. Today, Oldman lives a teetotal lifestyle and attributes his success in beating his addiction to Alcoholics Anonymous, and has since publicly praised the organization. On 31 December 2008, in a private, formal ceremony, Oldman married Alexandra Edenborough in Santa Barbara, California.
Oldman has been married four times.
