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.


Totally agree with notorious :)


who is this loser,Jen is a big star all over the world, from Chile.


@"jealous much?" no, the bottom line is that jennifer aniston movies make money, so no, they must not suck as much as you think. whether a movie "sucks or not" is on an individual basis, it depends on what people like or don't like.


I won't start naming names as to who has terrible movies but, hey, have you watched Jennifer Aniston movies lately?! Sorry, that's not how "won't name names" works. "I won't name names" seems like a very simple concept and I thought most people understood it. You can't go around blasting someone more famous than you in front of everyone in the world and say she doesn't deserve fame. I've never heard of Rupert Everett. Never. Never watched any of his movies, heard his songs, don't know what he does. All I know of him is in this article. We'll see how much of a selling point this article is for him. We'll see how many producers flock to him now.


@katie we can argue all day about this but the bottom line is that her movies still suck.


@"jealous much?" they haven't been "flops," only people that don't like jennifer aniston say that, but her movies make a surplus, and angelina jolie has been in 2 more more movies in the past 5 years then jennifer aniston has, and angelina's movies have been in deficits. The Tourist cost over $100 million to produce, and only made $17 million when it came out, and Salt cost $110 million to make, but only generated $36 million when it came out. jennifer aniston's movie The Bounty Hunter broke even on the first week it came out in theaters as it cost to make, and then ended up making 3 times as much as it cost to make overall. and also, i would like to ask, why would i be jealous? it's not my money, it's just true


What happened to the Rupert Everett from My best Friend's Wedding? That guy was likable and dashing.
What is it about Jennifer this year? First Joan Collins said that she is not beautiful, that she is cute, not beautiful, and now Rupert Everett who used to be good to look at, is now challenging her acting abilities. Wow!! Jennifer has a cover girl personality and knows how to keep a high enough profile to stay in the public's view. Evidently she works hard to stay within the media circus of photographers and paparazzi who get paid big bucks for a single picture of her. As a Friends star,Jennifer's hair was already famous. Combining a TV star and movie star in marriage sealed the deal on Jennifer being an A-lister. With or without Brad, Jennifer knows what it takes to remain on that A-list!!


@katie how is money made with jen when all her movies are FLOPS!? Which means they MAKE NO MONEY!!! Lol your comment makes no sense angelina hasn't been in a lot of movies in awhile and the ones she is in have been hits!


Too funny I agree!!


well, obviously jen is a good actress, otherwise she wouldn't be getting roles, and her movies actually make more in the box office then it takes to make, angelina jolie's last 9 movies have made less at the box office then it took to make, so casting angelina in a movie=money lost, and casting jennifer aniston in a movie=money made
