In a new article by Esquire magazine, the 53-year old actor Gary Oldman - who portrayed Sirius Black in the Harry Potter film franchise - shared his thoughts on some of the things he has learned over the years.
Here are a few of Gary's comments:
"You can make a performance better in the editing, but you sure tear passion to tatters with the scissors."
"There's no handbook for parenting. So you walk a very fine line as a parent because you are civilizing these raw things. They will tip the coffee over and finger-paint on the table. At some point, you have to say, 'We're gonna have to clean that up because you don't paint with coffee on a table."
And on Harry Potter:
"By the way, the 'Harry Potter' series is literature, in spite of what some people might say. The way J.K. Rowling worked that world out is quite something."
Check out all of what Gary Oldman has to say right here. He is an incredible humanitarian.
