Rupert Everett Trashes Jennifer Aniston

By: / December 30, 2010

Rupert Everett has some harsh words for Jennifer Aniston and her continued success in Hollywood.

The rom-com actor recently insinuated in a BBC radio interview (via UsMagazine.com) that Jen, 41, doesn’t really deserve the success that she has found as a Hollywood A-lister.

“If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you’ll find that they’re mostly sustained by the business,” Everett told BBC. “You’ll find there’s lots of women and lots of men in the business that the powers that be decide are right for their business, and they’ll stand with them for quite a long time.”

“Jennifer Aniston will have one too many total flops, but she’s still a member of that club,” the 51-year-old actor continued. “And she will still manage to…like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless rom-com, a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula.”

In recent years, Jennifer’s films have done pretty poorly at the box office but she still manages to sign on to high-profile projects. Jennifer’s most recent film, The Switch, made only $27 million in the US while its production budget was $19 million.

Jen wasn’t the only star to get criticized by Rupert – Golden Globe nominee Colin Firth was taken to task for some career slip-ups.

“Colin Firth I don’t think was at all good in Mamma Mia! I would have thought it was almost a careericide,” Everett said. “On the other hand, I think his performance in A Single Man was the best performance of his life.”
