Lars von Trier is taking back his apology for saying at the Cannes Film Festival he sympathizes with Adolf Hitler.
Earlier this year at Cannes, the Danish filmmaker said he had believed he was Jewish until his mother told him on her deathbed that he wasn't. He said his German ancestry made him "sympathize with (Hitler) a little bit." He added that he supports Jews.
Von Trier, who was showcasing his film "Melancholia," apologized, but was banned for the rest of the festival and declared "persona non grata."
But in the October issue of GQ magazine, von Trier says he's not sorry, only that he wishes he had made clear he was joking. He says, "I can't be sorry for what I said. It's against my nature."
