Rupert Everett: Dreadful. Snob.

"He's a dreadful snob, really." 

And that is all you really need to know. 
From a profile in The Guardian.

PS Vanished Years was serialised on the wireless this week, and I have to confess, I found it quite amusing. 

PPS Having a straight publication calling a gay man a "queen" in the headline, unsettles me. Am I alone in thinking this?

PPPS Rupert is one of those "queens" the broadsheets adore - "Ooh, he's bitchy, but clever with it!" (See also John Waters, Neil Tennant and the late Gore Vidal) - so he's probably everywhere this weekend. Forgive me if I don't catalogue them all.

Update: Claims in the Sunday Telegraph he's got "death threats" about his disparaging of gay parenting. You may note Dame Rupert hasn't contacted the police. Silly old drama queen.

  1. His anti-marriage rant in today's Guardian is quite amusing though...

    "But why do we want to get married in churches? I don't understand that, myself, personally. I loathe heterosexual weddings; I would never go to a wedding in my life. I loathe the flowers, I loathe the fucking wedding dress, the little bridal tiara. It's grotesque. It's just hideous. The wedding cake, the party, the champagne, the inevitable divorce two years later. It's just a waste of time in the heterosexual world, and in the homosexual world I find it personally beyond tragic that we want to ape this institution that is so clearly a disaster."
