The Canberra Times have been gifted a letter from Guy Pearce’s management following his part on the half hour sustained sledge of Canberra dished up on international television earlier in the week.
I’m writing to sincerely apologise for the comments I recently made about Canberra on the USA talk show ‘Craig Ferguson’.
I’m such a twit for doing this and feel so embarrassed and mortified at what I said.
I regretted it as soon as I walked off the set. I stupidly ran with a joke which I took too far for no other reason than to get laughs and I know I’ve offended many Canberrans and Australians in general.
I feel horrible about myself for doing this and I’m truly very sorry.
The thing is, what I said doesn’t even reflect my true feelings. I actually really like Canberra, and in the few times I’ve been I’ve really enjoyed it and found it to be extremely beautiful, so I’m so sorry for being such a dickhead.
It goes on at some length.
