Oh Really, Rupert Everett?

This article, where formerly interesting actor Rupert Everett slams formerly interesting actress Jennifer Aniston, was of no interest to me at all until I spotted two things.

First, in his wild shotgunning of every topic imaginable in the hopes of stirring up something controversial, he calls Shakespeare "an overrated writer who should be banned for the next 100 years." I could care less what he says about Jennifer Aniston or George Clooney, but taking shots at Shakespeare is stretching things pretty far.

Second, "It's no secret that the actor feels that his coming out as a gay man stalled his Hollywood career."

Absolutely. I mean, it pretty much wiped Sir Ian McKellen off the map, right?
