Gary Oldman has spoken out to defend Mel Gibson over his anti-Semitic behavior.

The Dark Knight Rises actor has blasted the "political correctness" which has seen the Lethal Weapo actor shunned from the movie world over racist and anti-Jewish slurs he is alleged to have made in recent years: "I just think political correctness is crap. That's what I think about it. I think it's like, take a f***ing joke. Get over it."

Mel is said to have made anti-Jewish slurs while being arrested for drink-driving in Malibu, California in 2006 with police reporting that he told his arresting police officer, "F***ing Jews ... the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."

Then to see rumors. The truth will set u free [sic]."

"My mom raised me to be kind to others. I get judged, harassed, and I try to take the high road. Sometimes it isn't easy. But we keep trying... I will continue to be the man my mother raised. I love people and I will try to be kind even when things are not fair. Don't believe rumors... [sic]," he continued.

Eva Longoria Slams Khloe Kardashian for Privacy Right

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Rants

Eva Longoria and Khloe KardashianEva Longoria has hit out at Khloe Kardashian for refusing to speak about her life.

The 39-year-old actress can't understand why the 29-year-old reality star was reluctant to discuss anything personal during a live interview last week, when she airs her every aspect of her life on her show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"There's definitely things that are off-limits and shouldn't be asked [but] I think it is different for a reality star than it is for an actor. An actor goes out and acts and does work, certain things are left to be private. Reality stars are kind of living out their lives, that's why they are famous, because of the reality of their lives," Eva said.

Alec Baldwin Retires From Public Life

Alec BaldwinDespite quarreling with him on Orphans, Alec Baldwin is apparently taking a cue from Shia LaBeouf.

The 30 Rock actor penned an open letter online claiming that he's retiring from public life. Fed up with what he claims is the media's false, twisted perception of his character, Baldwin uses most of his letter to tell his side of recent news stories that have shed a poor light on him: "But - I’m sorry, I can’t let go of this - do people really, really believe that, when I shouted at that guy, I called him a 'f****t' on-camera? Do you honestly believe I would give someone like TMZ’s Harvey Levin, of all people, another club to beat me with?"

Baldwin additionally points out that all of the bad publicity surrounding him have cost him projects, including his lucrative Capital One deal, which he says he donated all of his fees to charity. Moreover, even though he's known for being a quintessential New Yorker, the 55-year-old contemplates in his letter whether or not he should raise his daughter in L.A. instead, considering the increased paparazzi craze.

"It’s good-bye to public life in the way that you try to communicate with an audience playfully like we’re friends, beyond the work you are actually paid for. Letterman. Saturday Night Live. That kind of thing," the 16-time Saturday Night Live host concludes.

Drake Philip Seymour Hoffman on the cover of 'Rolling Stone'

Apparently for Drake, a "stolen" magazine cover is apparently worth more than honoring a recently departed star.

The 27-year-old rapper and actor was set to appear on the upcoming cover for Rolling Stone magazine when the publication informed him that they would be opting instead to highlight actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's death. Although initially ranting on his Twitter about a misquote from him about fellow rapper Kanye West in the article, Drake then wrote, "They [Rolling Stone] also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue."

News Anchor Confuses Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne

KTLA reporter Sam Rubin and Samuel L. Jackson

Perhaps when you're an entertainment reporter, you ought to Google the celebrity - as a precaution! - you're about to interview - before you make a mistake like KTLA anchor Sam Rubin did with Samuel L. Jackson.

Jackson appeared on the news show to promote his film Robocop when Rubin asked him about his Super Bowl commercial. The Avengers star quickly realized that Rubin mixed him up with The Matrix actor Laurence Fishburne - who did a Kia car commercial for the Super Bowl - and was even quicker to chastise RubIn: "What Super Bowl commercial? You're as crazy as the people on Twitter. I'm not Laurence Fishburne!"
