In an interview with UK’s Radio Times, washed-up pretty boy Rupert Everett says Americans are “whiny victims” whose nation has become “unattractive.”
“I’m totally off the States now,” he told the magazine. “Really, they’ve got very blobby as a nation.
“Now they (the Americans) are whiny victims – and there’s nothing sexy about them any more. And that kind of semi-blindness about the rest of the world, which was attractive when America was exciting, is really unattractive now.”
There is nothing I like more than English actors who make it rich over here, then go back home and talk about what a shitty country this is. Normally, I’d say he should probably not accept anymore American jobs, but he doesn’t seem to be in danger of getting any.
As much as I hate this sort of posturing, I do have to give him some leeway when it comes to talking about people becoming unattractive. Because if anyone is qualified to speak to that, it’s him.
Perhaps he can save his residuals from jobs he took away from American actors, and come to the states for his next procedure.
We may be a nation of blobby whiners, but we know how to do a face lift that doesn’t make you look like Dixie Carter.
