David Oyelowo Says Accusing Benedict Cumberbatch of Racism is 'Absolutely Ridiculous'

David Oyelowo looks super sharp while attending a press conference for his movie Selma held during the 2015 Berlinale International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday (February 10) in Berlin, Germany.

The 38-year-old actor was joined by his co-star Colman Domingo, as well as director Ava DuVernay, all of whom later hit the red carpet for the film’s premiere.

David recently responded to the backlash Benedict Cumberbatch received for using the term “colored” when talking about black actors and diversity.

“To accuse him of racism is absolutely ridiculous and nonsensical, and anyone who does should be ashamed of themselves,” David told The Big Issue. “He was talking about the under-representation of people within the UK film industry and the fact that actors like me are getting better opportunities in the US. He has no dog in that fight. He is one of the premier white actors, not just in the UK but the world. And he has done something truly beautiful in saying this isn’t right.”

Amy Adams, Channing Tatum, & Reese Witherspoon Cover Vanity Fair's Star-Studded Hollywood Issue

Channing Tatum lifts Amy Adams on his shoulders for the 21st annual Hollywood cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

The magazine’s issue is celebrating this year’s great actors including Amy (Big Eyes), Channing (Foxcatcher), Reese Witherspoon (Wild), Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), David Oyelowo (Selma), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Oscar Isaac (A Most Violent Year), and Miles Teller (Whiplash).

“We made the picture in the same studio where we did the first Hollywood cover,” Annie told the mag about the shoot. “It looks fairly simple, but in fact it was difficult to shoot. We choreographed it over two days. Usually you shoot from fairly far away, but we wanted to get really close to the actors. We made an effort to create a feeling of intimacy. I pushed into them, shooting to the left and then the right, coming in as tight as I could. It was hair-raising, at least for me.”

Selma's David Oyelowo Says Academy Favors 'Subservient' Black Roles

Rosamund Pike keeps it classy while arriving at the 2015 Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Virtuosos Award Ceremony held at Arlington Theater on Sunday (February 1) in Santa Barbara, Calif.

The 35-year-old actress was joined at the event by Selma‘s David Oyelowo and Whiplash‘s J.K. Simmons as they were all honored with the Virtuosos Award, which was created to recognize a select group of actors who have distinguished themselves through performances in film this past year.

The day before, Michael Keaton suited up to attend his Modern Master Award Ceremony alongside his son Sean Douglas and Multiplicity co-star Andie MacDowell.

David just recently talked about how he believes the Academy favors “subservient” black roles after being snubbed for an Oscar. “No, look, historically — this is truly my feeling; I felt this before the situation we’re talking about and I feel it now — generally speaking, we, as black people, have been celebrated more for when we are subservient, when we are not being leaders or kings or being at the center of our own narrative.”

FYI: Rosamund is wearing a Erdem Resort gown. David is wearing Dolce&Gabbana.
