Rupert Everett Lambasts Hollywood, "Tasteless" Jennifer Aniston Movies

by at . Comments

Actor Rupert Everett is not shy about expressing himself ... or naming names if he's bitter enough about who becomes a star and who doesn't.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4 about how homosexuals fare in Hollywood, the interview eventually turned to the question of audience perception.

Rupert argued that no matter what fans may think, the industry decides who will become A-list. How else to you explain Jennifer Aniston?!

The Switch? The Bounty Hunter?! Come on!

"If you look and analyze the careers of many, many, many stars, you'll find that they're mostly sustained by the business," he said.

"I'm not going to start naming names of people whose films have not succeeded at the box office, but you'll find lots of women and lots of men that the powers that be determine are right and they'll stand with them for quite a long time."

"Jennifer Aniston will have so many absolute flops, but she's still a member of that club, and like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless rom-com."

Oooookay ...

Rude? Bitter? You bet. Although The Switch, The Bounty Hunter, Love Happens and Management were pretty terrible, we'll give him that.

Marley & Me was a big hit, though, and Friends? One of the most popular shows in history. Plus, she married Brad Pitt and has that hair.

In the end, you don't have to be a professional critic to observe correctly that Jen has made some bad movies. But there is an audience.

If they weren't profitable, why would they continue to be made? Rom-coms may be tasteless, but they're cheap to produce. Cha. Ching.

Maybe she's riding her past successes a bit these days, but does she really deserve to be singled out like this? Go get a life, Rupert!

Just don't even get near her.

And because he has no job, he isnt affraid to say WHAT EVERYBODY THINKS OF ANISTONS CARRER. Of course her fans defend her but everybody knows its true. he can say this because he can! he knows that his career is over so he has nothing to loose. everybody is affraid of saying anything negative about poor rich Maniston. He got the balls and what he says is no lie its a fact! I hope Maniston will finaly fade away. Shes a looser!

Rupert is, or at least WAS, good pals with Madonna. Perhaps thisis some catty anti-Jen rubbish from her too. In any case, Rupert shouldn't talk about awful movies and talentless actresses when he defends the MOST overrated and horrible "actress" ever, Madonna. He starred with her in a bomb himself. Anyone see "The Next Best Thing?" I didn't think so.

Rupert Everett should just live with the fact - Jennifer Aniston is laughing all the way to the bank.

i think it's funny that all jen haters are saying that all of her movies suck like it's a fact, but the jen fans actually have common sense and know that it depends on what types of movies you like. some people like horror, some like drama, some like comedy, ect. it's an OPINION. that's like me saying that since i think angelina's movies are bad, that they all suck, and everybody thinks the same thing. they're all the exact same movie over and over, except she has a different occupation and different name. she's always the wanna-be-badass that's too-cool-to-care. it's all about violence and killing and sex, and she's always naked in every one of them, even when it's not necessary. i swear, if you see one of her movies, you've seen them all. so just because i think they aren't good, doesn't mean other people think the same thing

But even you note that they're crap but that they make money. Everett is not commenting on the profitability of Aniston's flics, you'll notice. He's saying that regardless of how crappy the movies are, she is hired again and again. You can knock Everett for saying that Aniston's movies don't make money, but he's right that many of them are crap.

hmm... i agree with "katie" a movie being good or bad depends on what movie taste someone has. and it just sounds to me like this "Rupert Everett" (a failed actor) is just bitter and jealous that his career failed, he sucks and needs to get over it. as far as the whole angelina thing, i think angelina saved jen from spending her life with a low-life two-timing loser, brad is angelina's problem now. jen is too much of an exciting person from him, he's just taking care of kids as a stay-at-home-dad (his career went in the toilet ever since he's been with angelina), while jen's vacationing and enjoying her life. there's a reason jen has so many friends and angelina doesn't

I agree with the last poster -- she has more flops than anything else and has not proven that she can carry a movie. There are real actors out there who don't get the chances she's had 9and squandered). By the way, this post is not about Angelina (for those dragging her in) but goes to prove the point that Angelina did Jen a favor....no one would probably be talking about Jen otherwise after Friends. With the exception of the aforementioned hit ovie with the dog (and Owen Wilson), her movies have tanked. Yet some of her co-satrs have done well with other actresses e.g. Aaron Eckhart -- currently getting a lot of love for his latest movie or Clive Owen who's been in excellent moviews (but not the one with jen). She's way too one-dimensional.

Rupert, your right on the money! shes no star,and as far as an actress is concerned, she plays herself in every movie. boring! i think Ange did brad a huge favor and saved him. theres a reason why shes single...shes boring in real life!
