Everett dating scene
Actor Rupert Everett is urging gay stars not to 'come out' and to keep their sexuality a secret as it could end their film career.The 50-year-old My Best Friend's Wedding star came out as gay 20 years ago and admitted that since then, he has been given supporting roles and not lead parts. And, honestly, I would not advise any actor necessarily, if he was really thinking of his career, to come out...'The fact is that you could not be, and still cannot be, a 25-year-old homosexual trying to make it in the British film business or the American film business or even the Italian film business.'It just doesn't work and you're going to hit a brick wall at some point.Everett is now suggesting that aspiring actors stay in the closet as it could harm their career. You're going to manage to make it roll for a certain amount of time, but at the first sign of failure, they'll cut you right off.'And I'm sick of saying: "Yes, it's probably my own fault." Because I've always tried to make it work and when it stops working somewhere, I try to make it work somewhere else.'But the fact of the matter is, and I don't care who disagrees, it doesn't work if you're gay.'However, Everett added that he does believe he is happier than those other major stars who are keeping their sexuality a secret.He said: 'I think, all in all, I'm probably much happier than they are.I may not be as rich or successful, but at least I'm vaguely free to be myself.' But despite Everett's insistence that he is being overlooked for lead parts, his supporting roles have been quite prominent ones.In 2007, he landed a cross-dressing role in the first St Trinian's movie as the school's headmistress Miss Camilla Fritton, and a second starring part as Miss Fritton's dodgy art dealer brother Carnaby, both main characters in the film.He was then cast to play Miss Fritton in the sequel, St Trinian's 2: The Legend Of Fritton's Gold, due for release on December 18.
And he lent his voice to the part of Prince Charming in the second and third Shrek films, which have become international box-office hits.Harry Everett Smith (May 29, 1923 in Portland, Oregon – November 27, 1991 in New York City) was a visual artist, experimental filmmaker, record collector, bohemian, mystic, and largely self-taught student of anthropology.Smith was an important figure in the Beat Generation scene in New York City, and his activities, such as his use of mind-altering substances and interest in esoteric spirituality, anticipated aspects of the Hippie movement.Besides his films, Smith is widely known for his influential Anthology of American Folk Music, drawn from his extensive collection of out-of-print commercial 78 rpm recordings.Throughout his life Smith was an inveterate collector.
In addition to records, artifacts he collected included string figures, Harry Smith was born in Portland, Oregon, and spent his earliest years in Washington State in the area between Seattle and Bellingham.
