Oldman apologises for 'town run by Jews' comment in Playboy interview

Gary Oldman has apologised for offending the Jewish community after a controversial interview was published in Playboy.

Oldman defended Mel Gibson in the article, and suggested the star had been treated unfairly as he lived in a town "that's run by Jews".

The Anti-Defamation League criticised the remarks - which prompted Oldman to release a statement saying he has "an enormous personal affinity for the Jewish people".
