Early life Oldman was born in New Cross, London, the son of Leonard Bertram Oldman (1921–1985), a former sailor who also worked as a welder, and Kathleen (née Cheriton; born 1919).[4][5] He has stated that Leonard was an alcoholic who left the family when Oldman was seven years old.[6] Oldman attended West Greenwich
Greenwich
School in Deptford, leaving school at the age of 16 to work in a sports shop.[7] He was a pianist as a child, and later a singer, but gave up his musical aspirations to pursue an acting career after seeing Malcolm McDowell's performance in the 1971 film The Raging Moon.[8][9][10] In a 1995 interview with Charlie Rose, Oldman said: "Something about Malcolm just arrested me, and I connected, and I said, 'I wanna do that'."[11] Growing up in south London, Oldman supported his local football club Millwall, and also followed Manchester United so that he could watch his idol, George Best.[12] In 2011, Oldman would learn from his mother that his father represented Millwall after World War II, with Oldman stating: "Just after the war, she ran a boarding house, for football players, Millwall players. And I knew that my dad was involved somehow with the reserve team. But two weeks ago my mum said, 'Oh yeah, your dad played for Millwall. When he was young he had a couple of first team games."[12] Acting career Training Oldman studied with the Young People's Theatre in Greenwich
Greenwich
during the mid-1970s,[4][13] while working jobs on assembly lines, as a porter in an operating theatre, selling shoes and beheading pigs in an abattoir.[4] He unsuccessfully applied to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), which welcomed him to try again the following year, but advised him to find something else to do for a living.[4][11] When asked by Charlie Rose
Charlie Rose
if he had reminded RADA of this, Oldman joked that "the work speaks for itself".[11] He won a scholarship to attend the Rose Bruford College
Rose Bruford College
in Sidcup, Southeast London, from which he graduated with a BA in Acting in 1979.[4][13] Oldman describes himself as 'shy but diligent worker' during his time there, where he performed roles such as Puck in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Theatre and early films (1979–1990) After leaving school, Oldman was the first in his class to receive professional work.[14] Oldman stated on The South Bank Show
The South Bank Show
that it had nothing to do with being better than someone else, rather his diligence and application.[15] He made his professional stage debut in 1979 as Puss, alongside Michael Simkins
Michael Simkins
and Peter Howitt, in Dick Whittington and His Cat, at York's Theatre Royal. The play then ran in Colchester, then with Glasgow's Citizens Theatre;[4] Oldman's work ethic and trademark intensity would make him a favourite with audiences in Glasgow
Glasgow
during the 1980s.[13] From 1980 to 1981, he appeared in The Massacre at Paris
The Massacre at Paris
(Christopher Marlowe), Desperado Corner (Shaun Lawton), and Robert David MacDonald's plays Chinchilla and A Waste of Time. He performed in a 6-month West End run of MacDonald's Summit Conference, opposite Glenda Jackson, in 1982.[4] Also that year, Oldman made his film debut in Colin Gregg's Remembrance, and would have starred in Don Boyd's Gossip if that film had not collapsed. The following year, he landed a starring role as a skinhead in Mike Leigh's film Meantime, and moved on to Chesterfield
Chesterfield
to assume the lead role in Entertaining Mr Sloane (Joe Orton). Afterwards, he went to Westcliffe to star in Saved (Edward Bond).[4] Saved proved to be a major breakthrough for Oldman. Max Stafford-Clark, artistic director of the Royal Court Theatre, had seen Oldman's performance and cast him as Scopey, the lead role of Bond's The Pope's Wedding, in 1984.[4] For his acclaimed performance, he won two of British theatre's top honours: the Time Out Fringe Award for Best Newcomer, and the Drama Theatre Award for Best Actor—the latter of which was shared with future film co-star Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins
for his performance in Pravda.[4][13][16] Oldman's turn in The Pope's Wedding led to a run of work with the Royal Court, and from 1984 to 1986 he appeared in Rat in the Skull (Ron Hutchinson), The Desert Air (Nicholas Wright), Cain and Abel, The Danton Affair (Pam Gems), Women Beware Women (Thomas Middleton), Real Dreams (Trevor Griffiths) and all three of Bond's The War Plays: Red Black and Ignorant, The Tin Can People and Great Peace.[4] Oldman was a member of the Royal Shakespeare
Shakespeare
Company from 1985 to 1986.[17] The 1984 production of The Pope's Wedding had been seen by director Alex Cox, who offered Oldman the part of ill-fated rocker Sid Vicious in the 1986 film Sid and Nancy. He twice turned down the role before accepting it, because, in his own words: "I wasn't really that interested in Sid Vicious
Sid Vicious
and the punk movement. I'd never followed it. It wasn't something that interested me. The script I felt was banal and 'who cares' and 'why bother' and all of that. And I was a little bit sort-of with my nose in the air and sort-of thinking 'well the theatre – so much more superior' and all of that." He reconsidered based on the salary and the urging of his agent.[18] In 1987, Oldman gained his third starring film role as Joe Orton
Joe Orton
in Prick Up Your Ears, for which he received a BAFTA nomination for Best Actor. That same year, he appeared in the plays The Country Wife
The Country Wife
(William Wycherley) and Serious Money

(Caryl Churchill).[4] Director Luc Besson told how, on the set of The Fifth Element
The Fifth Element
(1997), Oldman could recite any scene from Hamlet
Hamlet
(William Shakespeare), in which he had starred a decade earlier.[19] Oldman's performances in Sid and Nancy
Sid and Nancy
and Prick Up Your Ears
Prick Up Your Ears
paved the way for work in Hollywood, garnering acclaim from prominent United States film critic Roger Ebert. Ebert wrote: "There is no point of similarity between the two performances; like a few gifted actors, [Oldman] is able to re-invent himself for every role. On the basis of these two movies, he is the best young British actor around."[20] Vicious's bandmate John Lydon, despite criticising Sid and Nancy, described Oldman as a "bloody good actor".[21] Oldman lost considerable weight for the role and was hospitalised.[22] His performance would go on to be ranked No. 62 in Premiere magazine's "100 Greatest Performances of All Time"[23] and No. 8 in Uncut magazine's "10 Best actors in rockin' roles", the latter describing his portrayal as a "hugely sympathetic reading of the punk figurehead as a lost and bewildered manchild."[24] In late 1988, he starred opposite long-time hero[11] Alan Bates
Alan Bates
in We Think the World of You, and alongside Dennis Hopper
Dennis Hopper
and Frances McDormand in the 1989 film Chattahoochee. In 1989, Oldman also starred as football hooligan Clive "Bex" Bissel in British drama The Firm, a performance which Total Film numbered as his best and called "stunning" and "fearless" in 2011.[25] In 1990 he costarred with Tim Roth in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Tom Stoppard's film adaptation of his own play of the same name. Total Film also praised the movie, calling Oldman's character "a blitz of brilliant comedy timing and pitch perfect line delivery."[26] Oldman starred opposite Sean Penn

and Ed Harris
Ed Harris
in State of Grace (1990), his first prominent US film; Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
described Oldman's turn as the highlight.[27] Janet Maslin, another noted US film critic, referred to his work as "phenomenal".[28] He was offered, but turned down, the lead role in that year's Edward Scissorhands.[29] Oldman moved to the United States in the early 1990s, where he has resided since.[30] Oldman and other young British actors of the 1980s who were becoming established Hollywood

Oldman in 2000

In 1991, Oldman starred in his first US blockbuster, playing Lee Harvey Oswald in Oliver Stone's JFK. According to Oldman, very little was written about Oswald in the script. Stone gave him several plane tickets, a list of contacts and told him to do his own research.[33] Oldman met with Oswald's wife, Marina, and her two daughters to prepare for the role.[34] The following year, he starred as Count Dracula
Dracula
in Francis Ford Coppola's romance-horror Bram Stoker's Dracula. A commercially successful film adaptation of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel,[35] it was a box office success worldwide. Oldman's performance was recognised as the best male performance of 1992 by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, which awarded Oldman its Best Actor award.[36] Oldman later became a popular portrayer of villains:[16] He played violent pimp Drexl Spivey in the Tony Scott-directed, Quentin Tarantino-written True Romance
True Romance
(1993), a role which MSN
MSN
Movies described as "one of cinema's most memorable villains";[37] a sadistic prison warden in Murder in the First (1995); futuristic corporate tyrant Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg in The Fifth Element (1997); and Dr. Zachary Smith/Spider Smith in the commercially successful but critically panned Lost in Space (1998). He was considered for two roles in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction
(1994), but neither were realised. Tarantino contemplated Oldman as gangster Jules Winnfield (played by Samuel L. Jackson),[38] while TriStar executives recommended him for drug dealer Lance (portrayed by Eric Stoltz).[39][40] In 1994's Léon: The Professional, he played corrupt DEA officer Norman Stansfield, which has since been named by multiple publications as one of the best villains in cinema.[41][42][43][44][45][46][47][48][49][50] Oldman also portrayed various accents; along with the Transylvanian Count Dracula, he gave a critically acclaimed reading of German-born Viennese composer Ludwig van Beethoven in Immortal Beloved,[51] and played Russian terrorist Egor Korshunov in the 1997 blockbuster Air Force One. He portrayed another historical figure, Pontius Pilate, in Jesus (1999). Oldman was considered for the role of Morpheus in The Matrix.[52] He served as a member of the Jury at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival.[citation needed] In 1998, MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch

as zealous Republican congressman Sheldon Runyon in The Contender (2000), in which he was also credited as a producer. Oldman received a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for his performance. In 2001, he starred opposite Anthony Hopkins
Anthony Hopkins
in Hannibal, as Mason Verger, the only surviving victim of Hannibal Lecter. He reportedly spent six hours per day in the make-up room to achieve the character's hideously disfigured appearance.[54] It marked the second time that Oldman had appeared opposite Hopkins, a personal friend who was part of the supporting cast of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Oldman is uncredited in the film, reportedly over a dispute regarding top billing, which was going to co-star Anthony Hopkins

and Julianne Moore. He received an Emmy Award nomination for two guest appearances in Friends

in May 2001, appearing in the two-part episode "The One With Chandler and Monica's Wedding" as Richard Crosby, a pedantic actor who insists that "real" actors spit on one another when they enunciate, leading to tension, then friendship, with Joey Tribbiani

Tiptoes
and Sin.[55] Although the film failed to impress reviewers, Oldman did garner praise for his portrayal of a man with dwarfism in Tiptoes: Lisa Nesselson in Variety described his work as "astonishingly fine",[56] and the performance was later mentioned in Mark Kermode's "Great Acting in Bad Films".[57] Resurgence and franchise stardom (2004–2014) In 2004, Oldman returned to prominence when he landed a significant role in the Harry Potter film series, playing Harry Potter's godfather Sirius Black. The following year, he starred as James Gordon in Christopher Nolan's commercially and critically successful Batman Begins, a role that he reprised in the even more successful sequel The Dark Knight (2008) and once more in the conclusion, The Dark Knight Rises (2012). Prominent film critic Mark Kermode, in reviewing The Dark Knight, downplayed claims that Heath Ledger's Joker was the highlight of the film, saying, "the best performance in the film, by a mile, is Gary Oldman's ... it would be lovely to see him get a[n Academy Award] nomination because actually, he's the guy who gets kind of overlooked in all of this."[58] Oldman co-starred with Jim Carrey in the 2009 version of A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol
in which Oldman played three roles.[59][60][61] He had a starring role in David Goyer's supernatural thriller The Unborn, released in 2009.[62][63] In 2010, Oldman co-starred with Denzel Washington

Oldman also watched Alec Guinness' performance in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and paid a visit to Smiley's creator John le Carré: "The way he touched his shirt, spoke and so on, I took all that and used it. I hope he won't mind, but Smiley is in his DNA."[68] In 2012, Oldman played Floyd Banner, a big-hitting mobster, in John Hillcoat's Lawless, alongside Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce

I mean, I do go for it a bit as an actor, I must admit."[18] Stuart Heritage of The Guardian wrote: "Finding the definitive Gary Oldman

ham performance is like trying to choose which of your children you prefer... The man is a long-term devotee of the art of ham."[88] Oldman has portrayed various accents[28] and a wide range of characters.[13][16] He is known for his in-depth research of roles[89] as well as his devotion to them; he was hospitalised after losing significant weight for Sid and Nancy.[22] Legacy Oldman has long established a cult following among film fans.[30][90] He is known for playing the primary antagonist in a number of popular motion pictures,[16] which has seen him referenced in popular culture. At the peak of his popularity in the 1990s, Oldman was dubbed by Empire magazine Hollywood's "psycho deluxe",[91] and was spoofed on popular television shows such as Fox comedy series In Living Color[92] and MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch,[53] as well as drafted in to appear on the first ever cover of Loaded magazine.[93] In 1993, he appeared prominently in the music video for Annie Lennox's international hit "Love Song for a Vampire", written for the soundtrack to Bram Stoker's Dracula, and had a cameo role as the Devil

The PSIFF chairman called Oldman "a performer whose ability to portray the most extreme of characters is a testament to the enormity of his talent."[130] In 2012, The Hollywood Reporter

named Oldman the highest-grossing actor in history, based on lead and supporting roles.[131] To date, films in which he has starred have grossed over $4.1 billion in the United States, and over $10.9 billion worldwide.[132] In 2012, Oldman was among the British cultural icons selected by artist Sir Peter Blake to appear in a new version of his most famous artwork – the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
album cover – to celebrate the British cultural figures of his life that he most admires to mark his 80th birthday.[133] Personal life After establishing himself as an actor, Oldman moved to Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in the early 1990s.[30] Despite numerous lead and supporting roles in major Hollywood
Hollywood
films, he is intensely private about his personal life and is known for his stance on celebrity and the ideals of Hollywood, stating: "Being famous, that's a whole other career. And I haven't got any energy for it."[30] Oldman's problems with alcohol were well-known during the early 1990s: he checked himself into rehab for alcoholism treatment in 1995.[13] In subsequent interviews Oldman acknowledged his problems with alcohol, and called himself a recovering alcoholic in a 2001 interview with Charlie Rose.[134] Today, Oldman lives a teetotal lifestyle and attributes his success in beating his addiction to attending meetings with Alcoholics Anonymous, and has since publicly praised the organisation.[135] In 2014, Oldman was questioned about his politics in an interview. He described himself as a libertarian, criticized political correctness and claimed that "conservatives in Hollywood
Hollywood
don’t have a podium". He also stated: "At the Oscars, if you didn’t vote for 12 Years a Slave you were a racist."[136] Oldman's personal friends have included musician David Bowie, Slash[citation needed] and fellow Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.[137] Marriages and family Oldman has been married five times. He married English actress Lesley Manville in 1987 but left her in 1989, three months after their son, Alfie, was born.[138] He met American actress Uma Thurman
Uma Thurman
on the set of State of Grace, and they were married in 1990, but the marriage ended two years later.[139] He was married to Donya Fiorentino from 1997 to 2001 and had two sons with her. After a lengthy state investigation and trial, he was granted sole legal and physical custody of the sons, and Fiorentino was allowed occasional state-monitored visits. On 31 December 2008, Oldman married English singer and actress Alexandra Edenborough in Santa Barbara, California.[140] Edenborough filed for divorce on 9 January 2015.[141] In September 2017, Oldman married writer and art curator Gisele Schmidt in a low-key ceremony at the home of Oldman's manager, Douglas Urbanski.[142] Oldman has two grandchildren, Matilda and Ozzy Oldman, through his eldest son Alfie.[143] His sister Maureen (known professionally as Laila Morse) is an actress. She had a role in Oldman's directorial debut, Nil by Mouth (1997),[12] before going on to play Mo Harris
Mo Harris
in the long-running BBC series EastEnders. Controversies Oldman was charged with drunk driving in 1991 after a night out in Los Angeles with actor Kiefer Sutherland. A deputy city attorney stated that Oldman's blood alcohol content was found to be more than twice California's limit for legal intoxication.[144] Some media outlets reported that Oldman was unhappy with The Contender (2000) because DreamWorks
DreamWorks
had edited the film to reflect pro-Democratic leanings, stirring controversy. The claims were declared "sloppy sensationalism" by Oldman's manager, Urbanski, who said that Oldman was "the least political person he knew", that "neither he nor Oldman had made the statements attributed to them," that they had "produced the film every last cut and frame," and that " DreamWorks
DreamWorks
did not influence the final cut or have anything to do with it."[145] It has been suggested that Oldman was blacklisted in Hollywood
Hollywood
for several years as a result.[146] In an interview in the July/August 2014 issue of Playboy
Playboy
magazine while promoting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Oldman criticized what he saw as excessive political correctness in American media and the entertainment industry's own discriminating hypocrisy, and argued in support of former controversial celebrities Mel Gibson
Mel Gibson
and Alec Baldwin. He stressed that he did not relate with most of their viewpoints, but regarding the former, agreed, "Gibson is in a town that's run by Jews"[147] (referring to Hollywood). After criticism from the Anti-Defamation League
Anti-Defamation League
(ADL), Oldman apologised to them in an open letter.[148] ADL director Abraham Foxman
Abraham Foxman
acknowledged that Oldman was remorseful, but felt his letter was insufficient and asked for "a little more introspection, a little more understanding and a little more education".[148] Oldman then made a public apology on the 25 June edition of late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he stressed that he was "profoundly sorry" for his "insensitive, pernicious and ill-informed" remarks.[149] Filmography Main article: Gary Oldman
Gary Oldman
filmography Awards and nominations Main article: List of awards and nominations received by Gary Oldman Views on Golden Globe Awards Oldman has been a critic of the Golden Globes and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA). In 2009, he spoke of an earlier row with the HFPA at a press conference, in which he criticised the awards for being a television ratings vehicle, rather than a celebration of art. He believed he was disqualified from Globes contention due to his comments.[150] In a 2012 interview, he described the ceremony as "bent", while unfavourably comparing the integrity of its voting process to that of the Academy and BAFTA awards.[151] Two years later, Oldman called the Globes "meaningless", called for a boycott, and reinforced his position on the Academy Awards
Academy Awards
being more credible.[152] In 2018, Oldman won the Golden Globe Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama category, for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour. He noted that he was "amazed, flattered and very proud" to be nominated.[153] References
