Gary Oldman talks to the Washington Post about his movie Darkest Hour, about Winston Churchill.
What did you learn about Churchill while shooting the film?
His stock rose considerably. I realize that this was a man, he was incomparable. I don’t know if you could equate him or contrast him with other leaders. I think perhaps he’s there up with Washington and Lincoln. The achievements. He was a man who held almost every major political position, was in politics for over 50 years and wrote 50 books — all of them readable. You’re looking at a man who painted 540 paintings, 16 exhibitions at the Royal Academy, won the Nobel Prize in literature. I mean the list goes on and on.
