    Default Rupert Everett admits he ‘sabatoged’ his own career by being ‘so difficult’


    Does he feel misunderstood? “Not exactly. You can only understand the disaster of your own case yourself. You can’t ever expect the world to see everything about yourself in the way that you do — certainly in terms of conducting a career as a homosexual in showbusiness. Not so much now, maybe, because I’m older. It’s not such a threatening problem. But all through my career it was a huge issue.”

    He still regrets coming out as an actor:
    “There’s a whole side of my business now which clicks its fingers for world peace and equal rights. Movie stars and directors and studios spend a lot of money promoting human rights and being charitable in Africa but, actually, in their own backyard, they really don’t accept that any of these things is happening. So people mostly said to me: ‘Oh, but you’ve been so difficult and you’ve blown everything for yourself, you’ve sabotaged your own career.’ To a certain extent, it’s true, but to a certain extent, it isn’t. There’s only a certain amount of mileage you can make, as a young pretender, as a leading man, as a homosexual. There just isn’t very far you can go.”


    On his AIDS fear:
    “AIDS in the Eighties was a very, very scary thing. There were people walking around with the disease that looked like the undead. Terrifying. I spent the first six years of my career thinking that any minute now I would probably come out with it. The first 10 years of my career were conducted with this interior hysteria of terror. In one sense, it made everything unpleasant. With every lens, I was wondering if they were going in too tight on what I might be hiding. I was very lucky, considering my very sl-ttish behaviour, never to get HIV. But I always thought I had it. I can look at films I’ve been in and see in my face this sheer terror.”


    Fame is “addictive”:
    “You get so many things given to you and you take them for granted almost straight away. Getting into restaurants. Having people be nice to you on the bus. You think that’s how everyone is to everyone. One of the great things about mine is that it’s been so cyclical, I’ve always been so up one minute and then so down. I learnt pretty quickly there was no point going on with ‘successful me’ when I was being a failure. I learned how to move into ‘humble me.’”


    Is he vain?
    “Not so much now. I want to be treated with a certain respect. That’s a vanity. I’m not vain about the way I look, particularly.”


    He has facial blood injections every 4 months:
    “They put it through a Magimix, turn it into plasma and inject it back in. It’s really good for your skin. Blood is the new thing. What you really want to have, if you’re rich, is someone with your blood group running high up in the mountains all day long and sending you down their blood, deliciously oxygenated, which you can inject in various parts of your body. I’d advise you to inject the whole of your face with blood — it will make it look radiant. Then I would have a little bit of laser, which is very good for tightening.

    [From Telegraph]

    I don't even recognize him. The name...yes. The face...no.

    He sounds like a nutter and very self-involved. The AIDS part I can sympathize with.

    LOL i think he's hilarious and yes, a little bit nuts. he does make a good point though, about how yes, he was difficult, but there was also the fact that coming out hurt his career.
    notice how straight male actors can be "difficult" or absolute drunken disasters and still get jobs (mel gibson, russell crowe, colin farrell, sean penn, etc.) but not so much women and gay men?

    Fucking up his face probably didn't help either.

    Yeah, it's kinda like Jennifer Grey or Renee Zellweger saying they don't get parts anymore. It's not because they are women.

    ^^^^
    mickey rourke would laugh at that comment, but he can't move his face anymore. also, he's busy spending the millions of dollars he's earned from the steady work he's been doing despite looking like a fucking burn victim. but let's keep pretending women over 40 in hollywood don't get fucked over.

    And that was in 2005 and he's been working steadily ever since.

    yeah, but before that he couldn't get hired.

    anyhoo, back to rupert. i don't know whether or not he couldn't get hired, but except for that crap movie he did with julia, i've only seen him in stylized period pieces. does he do other kinds of films? if not, maybe he is just seen in hollywood as playing a certain 'type'.

    His career was killed the minute he shared the screen with Madonna.

    He was a pretty boy. It seems he didn't have much acting training. He was expelled from the Central School of Speech and Drama.
