Rupert Everett Bashes Jennifer Aniston's "Tasteless" Career
Rupert Everett isn't a fan of The Bounty Hunter. Or The Switch. Or pretty much anything else Jennifer Aniston has starred in.
During an interview with BBC Radio 4, the 51-year-old British actor claimed that no matter how poorly an actor performs at the box office, certain stars will always remain on Hollywood's A-list.
"If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you'll find that they're mostly sustained by the business," Everett argued. "You'll find there's lots of women and lots of men in the business that the powers that be decide are right for their business, and they'll stand with them for quite a long time."
He then used the 41-year-old Just Go With It actress to further illustrate his point.
"OK, something will go wrong, like Jennifer Aniston will have one too many total flops, but she's still a member of that club," Everett continued. "And she will still manage to…like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless rom-com, a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula."
But Aniston isn't the only box office draw who Everett is frustrated with: He's got an issue with Oscar-nominated actor Colin Firth too!
"Colin Firth I don't think was at all good in Mamma Mia! I would have thought it was almost a careericide," Everett sniped. "On the other hand, I think his performance in A Single Man was the best performance of his life."
