Despite British acting legend Gary Oldman winning an Oscar (his first, no less) for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, the Good Morning Britain host couldn't resist taking a swipe at him.
Oldman also said his involvement with the film was "contingent on getting Kazuhiro because for me he was really the only person on the planet who could have pulled it off, and I think he delivered". According to Gulliver, however, the incident "did not happen".

Oldman's own father was, he says, an abusive alcoholic who left the family when his son was seven.
Gary Oldman has been similarly charmed despite his own ugly history. "Bill Maher could call someone a fag and get away with it". He maintained they had been fighting over the phone, which accidentally smacked Fiorentino when he let it go. But the win is raising eyebrows because Oldman was accused of domestic abuse by an ex-wife.
