Gary Oldman had a pre-arranged appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live scheduled for Wednesday night, and he used the time to publicly apologize for his comments from a recent Playboy magazine interview. Noting that he had “said some things that were poorly considered,” he explained he was “profoundly and deeply apologetic.”

Later in his remarks, Oldman said he wanted to talk directly to his fans (“Team Oldman”), who he noted probably felt like he let them down. “Especially to the younger fans, I’m a public figure; I should be an example and an inspiration and I’m an a-hole. I’m 56 and I should know better.”

Watch Oldman’s full remarks below.
