Rupert Everett, who is most known for starring in such romantic comedies as ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding and ‘The Next Best Thing,’ has slammed the continued success of one of the genre’s leading ladies, Jennifer Aniston. During an interview with BBC Radio, the actor said “If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you’ll find that they’re mostly sustained by the business,” and pointed to the ‘Friends’ star.
Everett also said that he thinks when Hollywood businessmen decide someone’s right for the film industry, “they’ll stand with them for quite a long time,” USmagazine.com is reporting. He added that he’s upset that when someone like Aniston has one too many flops, Hollywood will continue to embrace them.
Even this year’s Academy Award front-runner for Best Actor, Colin Firth, for his portrayal of King George VI in ‘The King’s Speech,’ received criticism from Everett. “(Colin) Firth I don’t think was at all good in ‘Mamma Mia!’ I would have thought it was almost a careericide,” Everett also said.
