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.


I agree with Rupert. She is a terrible actress who plays almost the same role in every movie she makes...which are terrible. I won't even see a movie she is in...waste of time. I do like friends...but it doesn't seem she can be sucessful in anything else.


out of all the people to call out on bad movies why jen aniston? i think she does need to venture out and do something different, but he could have picked better examples.


Agreed with Rupert. She's a has been who will always have the title of "the girl brad pitt left for angelina jolie" she's not a hot commodity anymore, she had 1 hit tv show and 1 hit movie about a dog.
