Rupert Everett Slams Jennifer Aniston

rupert everett vs jennifer aniston

Oh come on, Rupert!

During an interview on BBC Radio 4's Today Show, Rupert Everett did NOT hold back when talking about Jennifer Aniston's movie choices.

Here's what he had to say about her:

…Okay, something will go wrong. Like Jennifer Aniston will just have one too many total flops. But she's still a member of that club. And she will still manage to — like a star forming in the universe — a whole lot of things swirling around and suddenly solidifying into yet another vital tasteless romcom: a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula.

Ouch!

Is this really called for?!

    and HE has room to talk about her???!!!!! I just dont understand why everyone would just leave her alone. Its disgusting that he would say this as he is wahed up



  2. 2

    She is cute & has a nice body; but her movies suck. She needs to find another character like "Rachel" so that she can have a hit series again. Given the fact that her acting range is limited, despite being paired up w/ A list actors who have moved up on the ladder. What she really ought to do is play the rich white lady to a T. After all she got $$$ might as well enjoy and reap what her $$$ can do for her.



  3. 3

    This can be summed up in one sentence: Rupert, what the hell are you doing that makes you soo damn better than Aniston?



  4. 4

    R.E. is right about J.A. She is only a tv actress…and not even a very good tv actress. All her movies suck. What she is, is a cute person with a nice body. She is famous because of Rachel and who she was formerly married too. Take away that and you have a attractive but middle age woman who needs to just go away and spend her $$$$ at San Cabo with a cabana boy!!!

    whatever perez, you were saying the same shit until about 3 months ago. don't go calling the kettle black. you hate her just as much as you did then, you're just not saying anything.



  6. 6

    Not that he has any room to talk but I agree with him. She makes shitty movies. The only one I've seen her in that I liked was "The Good Girl".



  7. 7

    truth hurts. name another celeb with so many flops, yet still considered "A" list

    1) he's a disgusting human being with nothing good to say about anyone.. and he looks like shat!
    2) I actually like some of her movies. You can't take them seriously because they aren't serious.. they are just sweet, cute movies that give you some laughs. I don't mind them at all. He's jealous because she keeps getting work and looks great for her age, while he looks 20 yrs older than he is.. even AFTER surg!



  9. 9

    I have no fucking idea what the hell he just said.



  10. 10

    SHE NEEDS A WAKE UP CALLL!!!!!!!!!



  11. 11

    OOOOO, SOMEBODY IS JEALLLLOUS



  12. 12

    Wow Mario/Barbara how quickly you forget all those years of calling her Chinifer Maniston. Was *that* really called for? Probably not. It's not like she ever did anything personal to you and nobody has ever reported her having bad behavior. You didn't like her only because of the whole Brad and Angelina thing. You decided that "Santa Angelina" was cool and "Maniston" wasn't, for no good reason, and then after that you relentlessly targeted and bullied her on this website for years.



  13. 13

    Oh shut up, Rupert! Jennifer is lovely!



  14. 14

    Well, yeah, it's called for. Look, Jennifer is sweet and all but the girl cannot act her way out of a paper bag. She was great on Friends but that was her niche and she never found it again. So it's not fair that she continually gets $15 million paychecks thrown at her over and over again when she has so little to offer. It's like the Wall Street honchos getting those billion-dollar bonuses they don't deserve. There are lots of other actresses out there who are far better than Aniston and they are going to be stuck waiting tables the rest of their lives. Maybe some studio exec will wake up and realize this. Jennifer's got plenty of money and she seems to get very little enjoyment out of the films she chooses, so I think she could just go away, maybe produce or something.



  15. 15

    right on, Rupert! I mean seriously, this woman has NO talent and has coasted longer than anyone in recent memory on a HUGE string of utterly forgettable films that she is grossly overpaid for. whenever I think of why Hollywood sucks, she's one of the first people that comes to mind.

    and don't bother bringing up Angelina - she actually won an Oscar once

    16

    He hit that "nail on the head".



  17. 17

    Fatback, you are still bullying. You're just finding another way to do it now by blaming others, which is almost more pathetic. Just proves that a leopard never changes it's spots. Or in your case, a meth-head never changes it's blotchy spots.



  18. 18

    He's right on. She can't choose a movie to save her life. She needs a real character to play .. a junkie … or shave her head, she needs to do something real big.



  19. 19

    She is not an actor. She is a movie star. She needs a great movie role to make her an actor. She has to be willing to shave her head, or play a junkie, or show that she has any acting talent at all.



  20. 20

    I have been thinking the same thing about her for years. How long will they continue giving her movie parts when people don't go and see her movies? I avoid anything she is in, because its painful to watch. I was just thinking the other day, she is famous for being in magazines at this point. and thats about it.



  21. 21

    I mean, the girl has only one role, and that is of Rachael, from FRIENDS, and, again, that is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 90s ! We are in the year 2011 ! And, is she just not a *little* old for that hair-style ? ! With ALL the Actresses/Whores in HollyWeird, there surely HAS GOT TO BE someone else who could star in all those silly Rom-Coms, , who can act, and for a lot less ! I am tired of my $12 movie ticket price going to feed her twelve cats ! ! !



  22. 22

    Rupert is also becoming a bitchy old queen - and, he looks ugly !

  23. YUCK says – reply to this


    23

    Do her movies suck? Yes! Did he have to say anything? No! The problem with most of us is that we think the world needs our opinion, when in fact the world would be a better place without it.



  24. 24

    And he is more than a glitter? Jen far outshines him.



  25. 25

    I think I know who he is, but don't understand his comments..and I would be willing to bet that she has more cash in the bank from her "romcoms" than he does…shes beautiful and rich..him..not so much



  26. 26

    People like her, because they like her! Some people are just likable, nice and have classy! Like Jen!

    And Rupert, while, no one talks about you, because, well, you're an ass! Sure, maybe, you might make a movie that does better then hers. . .but in the end, you both are just actors, no one's curing cancer or doing anything truly important. . .so it comes down to personality, and the general public, like her!

    So suck it!



  27. 27

    Well, I can't say I remember too many of her movies, but I just watched "The Switch" and I thought that was actually pretty good!

  28. Wrenn says – reply to this


    28

    Who the hell does he think he is?? WTF has he done lately?? Sounds like your typical jealous little bitch to me!!



  29. 29

    first off she doesnt make these movies. these movies come to her. she reads them, thinks they sound interesting, films them, but they just dont work on the big screen. yes she needs to branch out and stop with being safe. but then again she is getting paid millions and getting one offer after another offer by being safe. i dont really think she cares about the public. she is doing what she loves and making millions. i envy her.



  30. 30

    He is right and not scared to say so like you are.



  31. 31

    Have to agree - the only remotely enjoyable movie of hers was "Marley and Me". Everything else is the typical predictable boring romance comedies.



  32. 32

    And WTF has he done lately? Also I hate the new use of "romcom", it sounds tacky and lazy. Does it take that much effort to spell or say Romantic Comedy?



  33. 33

    She cannot act and the people in Hollywierd need to stop kissing her ass.



  34. 34

    Wtf has he been in since My Best Friend's Wedding…He'll FOREVER BE THAT GUY!

  35. GG78 says – reply to this


    35

    Regardless of who says it, the fact is, her movies suck and she is a horrible actress !

  36. cymro says – reply to this


    36

    Says Rupert Everett from The Next Best Thing…. Right!!! & unreal5511 has said exactly what I said about your new way of bullying people - you did it to Christina only a few gays ago - let other people say what you want to and sit back and act all blameless…. Look in the mirror, Perez.



  37. 37

    Perez? For the record, it's Rupert, with a T. It sure seems like Rupert with a T got his little girl panties in a bunch and is throwing a little girly fit. Granted Aniston is a one character actor, but people like that one character, so as long as they do, she'll keep getting parts. Too bad no one wants to hire a flamer Rupert with a T. Now you just go stomp your pretty little feet and be jealous.



  38. 38

    I can only mention one movie off the top of my head that had Rupert in it and that was thanks to Julia Roberts. Jennifer Aniston may not be Oscar worthy but at least she's a likeable actor and plays likeable characters from time to time.



  39. 39

    Rupert, go back to your closet in England.



  40. 40

    He's an opinionated little creep, isn't he. I really am beyond tired of people using JA for a punching bag.What RE said he could have been saying the exact same thing about Reese Witherspoon. Who is beyond mediocre. Reese has been making the same movie for at least the last ten years.



  41. 41

    And why is suddenly his opinion worth anything? What a self important twat.

    Aniston needs to at least break out of the romcom rolls. That's all she seems to do which is crappy because she is a good actor.



  42. 42

    Its called honesty people. It's rare in the entertainment world. Usually we get PR statements saying " I Wish him/her the best", "Oh, she/he is a lovely person to work with. "Rainbow and bunnies and everything is perfect"…. I give him credit for saying how he really feels. What he said was a little harsh, but true.



  43. 43

    Vicious! However, it's true. She should just go back to TV and star in another soap. Enough of the movies! Follow Courtney Cox's after-Friends career plan!



  44. 44

    Not a nice thing to say to the media but he does have a point. She should channel all that energy to helping people, just my 2 cents. Really, she keeps making all these flops, enough with the greed already, we have a great need in our world and it sickens me to see this.



  45. 45

    I don't really get the point of his stupid statement..nor do i even know who this guy is… clearly he has no room to speak on her career.

  46. open says – reply to this


    46

    so office space has a following. people quote that movie! she was in that. along came polly.. so stiller sucks, too? the breakup with vince vaughn.. so he sucks?! they pick the wrong rolls?? I loved the object of my affection… and the good girl, with jake gilenhaul (sp?).. and rumor has it.. the bounty hunter, with gerard butler.. or he's just not that into you - many other famous peeps in that one. bruce almighty!! sorry, but I do think she's had some really good films. she's the type, imo, to pick artistic movies and not just the usual blockbuster crap. she's doesn't need big hollywood flare in her films to make them good. they are what they are.. funny, sweet romantic comedies. i happen to like those kinds of movies. and those movies NEVER do huge in the theaters.. but they stick around forever. i think she's smart in her choices. to each their own! look at movies like donnir darko.. huge cult following! how long was that in the theater?!?! again.. to ea their own.



  47. 47

    He just said what you have been saying all these years, he said in a more diplomatic way, you as usual are just rude, perezita.

    I agree, her movies sucks and she does have a nice body but that alone does not make you a star.



  48. 48

    He's right. But, I bet his comments were taken out of context. She does have too many flops but if studios want her, what is she to do. She is a successful working actress who makes too many movies. She needs to pick more wisely.



  49. 49

    It's true. This girl is not only talentless but average looking as well. Shes literally the most overrated actress of today. Shes a one show actress. THE ONLY THING keeping her famous is that non sense with Brad Pitt. If she never would of met him she would of died out years ago. She's never made a movie that hasnt flopped hard.



  50. 50

    Also, Rupert Everett is an acclaim theater actor in Britain and his film biography here in the states is quite impressive and his films did make lots of $$.

    You should do your research before you trash him. it makes you look ignorant and dumb, folks.

    Ciao



  51. 51

    This is a snippet and when taken out of context it sounds like something other than what it is. Try reading the WHOLE interview.

    Most of her movies do suck though.



  52. 52

    Ha! Ha! He's right. She truly belongs on TV, if there.



  53. 53

    Everybody is saying she needs to pick better choice. Aniston plays the same anal neurotic selfabsorbed characters over and over again because that's what she can handle. Could you see her in a period movie doing an accent. She plays what to her abilities and those are her abilities. She CAN'T play different parts. She's a one note actress and that's just the way it is. This is a woman who wears 10 different shades of black or beige. I don't like Jolie but she is a damn good actress. Aniston just ain't.



  54. 54

    Couldnt agree more with RE. Has Aniston ever won an award for her acting……….DERRR POINT PROVEN…..itleast Sandra Bullock has something to show for being in bad movies……She got an Oscar for an awesome performance. Aniston is well overdue for a good movie but doesnt want a serious role….LAAAAMMMEEEEE



  55. 55

    Dollar - EVERY CHARACTER she has played since starring on "FRIENDS" is RACHEL….The only character she played that did not resemble Rachel was the character she played in THE GOOD GIRL…She is sterotyped and I don'think she cares as she is TALENT LESS….



  56. 56

    Re: dollar – EVERY CHARACTER SHE PLAYS IS "RACHEL" - She is talentless… the only movie she was remotely okay in was THE GOOD GIRL…..ugh she is so pathetic….



  57. 57

    Re: LisaL79 – Me neither! Somebody please translate douche-speak for us.



  58. 58

    THEY BOTH SUCK! I cringe every time I see a new "movie" that Aniston is in! I've never been impressed with her but I would be interested to see if she can pull off a dramatic thriller or such. The comedies just aren't funny!

    Rupert, well, who the hell is he????



  59. 59

    Aniston and Jolie (as much as I love her!) are only eye candy and that appeal is fading fast with age. However, at least Jolie has the Goodwill Ambassador thing going for her. Smart chick!



  60. 60

    i love Jennifer Aniston for the woman she is, but this guy kinda has a point. she has talent, she just doesn't pick movies that showcase different sides of it. i would love to see her in something other than a comedy, maybe a thriller, something new and interesting for her. i bet the moment she does a 180 on us people will start to see her for the actress she is and not because they want to keep piling opinions over her private life. i don't know who this dude is but he has a point— he's just an asshole about saying it.



  61. 61

    I like Jennifer Aniston, but I see what he is saying. She hasn't stretched her acting chops at all. I will say she has made money though so what is the big deal? She still looks good too. If I were her I would probably try a bit harder, but maybe she can't reach that far.



  62. 62

    it's not necessarily her movie choices - it's that she's not a very talented actress



  63. 63

    why does he give fuck???? really!.



  64. 64

    the only thing aniston is good for is losing whats his face



  65. 65

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – Wasn't Derailed a thriller?



  66. 66

    LOL what a QUEEN, who the fuck is rupert? Who even cares about jennifer aniston? hahahaha



  67. 67

    Even though he is correct, he sounds jealous that she gets more work than he does and makes a ton more money.



  68. 68

    One word, JEALOUS



  69. 69

    And this is EXACTLY why it's hard to feel sorry for Jennifer Aniston. She's riding the pity party straight to the bank. She always plays "Rachel" in every single movie she is in. When she married Brad Pitt, I couldn't BELIEVE it as he was so obviously out of her league. I was actually surprised that marriage lasted as long as it did.
    *
    ANY OTHER ACTOR with so many shitty movies would be washed up by now but not Jennifer. She must be secretly hated by so many. And it's understandable. She's not a bad person but she seems to have had her career handed to her (starting with her daddy's connections) while others have had to work their ass off and blow scummy directors just to get a part. Doesn't seem fair, does it?
    *
    Sure, many in Hollywood have connections like Gwynneth Paltrow and ScarJo and Natalie Portman, etc. But those women CAN ACT when it's obvious Jen Aniston can't.
    *
    And good for Rupert for saying it like it is. He can say what he is saying EXACTLY b/c he is washed up…i.e. nothing to lose. How many in Hollywood feel EXACTLY the same way as Rupert but keep silent for fear of backlash? I don't hate Jennifer but she is NOT AT ALL the victim people keep thinking she is.



  70. 70

    Jennifer Aniston has got to stop running her lines with her paid close friend. That work doesn't help her acting abilities. She needs an acting coach and to get in touch with her true feelings to be a better actress!



  71. 71

    I agree that Jennifer generally acts with class and seems like a decent person. But she's not very talented. She's a supremely AVERAGE actress and that's putting it kindly. I read somewhere that Gwynneth Paltrow (that catty bitch…LOL) would call her "that TV girl" and Jen Aniston was terribly insecure about it and still is. Jen is keenly aware that her success stems ONLY from her TV role on Friends (and her failed marriage) and so she will never star in another TV show ever again. It would be a stop down for her. Even though it's the thing that made her famous….she hates that which made her famous. Kinda like Traci Lords hates and distances herself from Porn even though it's exactly that which made her famous.



  72. 72

    she is boring, and she is the same character in a lot of the movies she is in, its like seeing rachel over and over again, the movies of hers that have been good are because she is not the main, i mean along came polly was funny because of stiler, marley because of the dog and wilson, etc in all those movies she is just there but she doesn't really brings anything to the story but on the other hand the movies she is the main they are just bad because she sucks sorry :S



  73. 73

    Rupert is just jealous because he's a washed up old hag.



  74. 74

    I agree. Maniston needs to go away. She does nothing except talk about Brad, get her friends to talk about Brad and make shit movies. She's beige.



  75. 75

    Ever since Rupert came out of the closet and got plastic surgery, where you would't know hiim if he even fell on top of you, his little career has gone down the shitter. I'm not big on Jennifer Aniston, I like some of her movies, some I don't, but at least she's not a hater.

  76. tmboc says – reply to this


    76

    It may be mean but the truth hurts. I love her but her movies do suck and at her age (I'm the same age so I can say it) how much longer does she have to keep doing these bad romantic comedies??



  77. 77

    I can't think of any movie he's ever been in, someone enlighten me?



  78. 78

    Rupert Everett is a whiny, bitch old woman.



  79. 79

    At least she has been in movies. Yeah Rupert, like My Best Friends Wedding was such a cinema classic. Get over yourself.



  80. 80

    I don't know who this guy even is, and yes what he said was rude. But it was kind of true. She is always in romantic comedies or playing a supporting role to a male actor, or both. She is never the lead role, she never plays different characters besides a "love interest" or the girlfriend.



  81. 81

    This coming from a guy who's more famous for being the friend of Madonna and Julia Roberts than his acting career. Bitter old queen.



  82. 82

    Re: A Voice of Sanity – Don't know why you felt the need to bring up Jolie, but there is clearly a difference between her career and Aniston's. Jolie actually plays lead roles, in different genres. Aniston always plays a supporting role to a man who is the main character, and isn't really in anything besides romantic comedies. They are both somewhat typecast though.



  83. 83

    Love her and all her movies! A lot of her movies are better than what's out there.



  84. 84

    It IS called for - needs to be said. At least someone in H'hood has witty command of the English language. And c'mon people like her are basically socialites and that's what movies are made of.

    85

    Give him some catnip. That wasn't kind. Meeeow.



  86. 86

    Rupert's a total moron. If Jen's movies weren't turning over a profit, there's no way she would still be featured in them endlessly, as Rupert assumes. Producers aren't morons. Rupert needs to get a brain, he's obviously very dumb.



  87. 87

    maybe not the person who should be saying it but he is right



  88. 88

    Jen's paid staff runs across the Internet posting to bash Rupert for telling the truth too bad Jen's paid staff can't buy enough movie tickets across the world to make her lame ass movies a success.

  89. @v@ says – reply to this


    89

    Re: EricBooth – Everett's not right. Her box office stats are on the net for anyone to see. Her movies don't cost a lot to make like a Bond action flick would necessitate, and her box office returns are very healthy. She earns her keep. If you don't like her, don't go see her movies. She has her audience.
    Rupert needs to work and establish his own.



  90. 90

    I don't care for Rupert but he's right. JA is a celebrity not an actor nor a moviestar either. Her movies will be forgetten 10 years from now. She'll be remembered as Rachel from friends and Brad Pitt's ex. I know she fans that like to see her play the same Rachel-like character over and over again but the fact is She's overpaid and overrated.



  91. 91

    Peace on Earth and good Will to all Men/Women. Perez is this a real comment. IF SO, poor Rupert. nobody should ever make issues of others. a deli guy should never talk shiz aobut a cop. a cop should never make shiz aobut a limo drivere. get mhy point? where does rupert get off making shiz about Aniston. that is just WRONG. in our Un hollywood world. that is just wrong.



  92. 92

    Re: steveyb – ummm yes she did win an emmy and golden globe award so yes she has won awards.



  93. 93

    Rupert is so right. Rupert is a talented actor. It is sad that twits like Aniston get the jobs and the more talented actors do not receive the recognition they deserve. Aniston and her PR team know how to play the shallow Hollywood game-and the reality is that it has nothing to do with talent.



  94. 94

    You can barely even understand what he's talking about! Most of her movies do suck, but then so do his, so it's like the pot calling the kettle black. Sounds like he's jealous that she makes a lot more money than he does.



  95. 95

    Angelina Jolie, as of late, has not been a fantastic actress. She's in the same category as JA; playing the same damn character. She's just in a different genre.

    As for JA, I'm not a fan of romantic comedies, however, I find HER take endearing. I'd totally pirate any film she's in.



  96. 96

    Rupert is an amazing actor. His words are true. Aniston continues to fail movie after movie. And she keeps making more movies. So he is right about her being in the club. And right that one day it will be a black hole. Aniston hasn't changed her hair style in decades, wears the same style clothes in every movie and plays the same character in the same romantic comedy's that are more than stale. Nothing against Aniston, just saying he has a definite point — like Owen Wilson playing the same tired characters in all his films and his last two aren't so good…



  97. 97

    Jealous that she's still relevant (no matter how shitty movies she does) and he's not ! Douche !



  98. 98

    LOL!!!!

    ITS FANTASTIC COZ ITS TRUE… AND HES RIGHT, SHES ALREADY THERE!!



  99. 99

    rupert everett has been playing the same, boring role with that fake, accentuated high-class british accent since forever

    Re: Quichie – I totally agree! well.. cept i am a fan of romcom. LOL. but AJ is a certain kind of actor and plays certain rolls just like JA. just like MOST actors! her nitch is romcom (except derailed= thriller and the good girl was more dramatic/comedy.. and she's the one.. also drama/com..and rock star, too.. ok. so she is NOT just rom/com ;)
    but some.. most actors have their nitch. why do they all have to do ALL types of characters?! IMO. ja is a decent actress.. her films are funny.. she plays those characters well. she's smart! she chooses rolls that suit her well. I swear people just listen to what others say and then jump on the hate band wagon! also! she HAS won and been nominated for many awards. and not just for friends! so.. stop hating.
