Rupert Everett Trashes Jennifer Aniston

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.

Watch Jen in the trailer for The Switch below.

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."

    Of course Rupert is right. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how many flops Aniston has been involved with -- yet she remains a 'chosen one'. Whether you want to believe it or not, folks, it's true.

    I love Colin firth. Sure, Mamma Mia wasn't his best role but actors deal with that all the time. They have excellent roles and some not so good ones. I'm sure every actor has a had role that wasn't their best, but Colin Firth has had many fantastic roles. For example, A Single Man, The King's Speech, Pride and Prejudice, Easy Virtue...Those are just a few.

    First of all, why would Rupert Everett say stuff like this? He has to know this kind of talk NEVER comes off well for the one who says it - he just looks like someone with sour grapes who is eaten up with jealously. And a quick word to this Bratt person: Dude, you REALLY need to get yourself a life of your own.

    Check this Rupert Everett under Wikipedia, it mentioned that he was a male prostitute at the age of 16, did it for drugs and money. 2 movies out of 37 he was okay.....Nothing to brag about like all you on here....The only reason people are agreeing with him is because Jennifer is Brads only wife and Angelina is only Brads babies Momma.The Box office numbers disagree with all of you....If you want to look at box office numbers and put it to the test Jennifer's movies did way more better here in the good old USA than Angelina..Because the rest of America will soon throw that Crazy B!tch Angelina in the mental Ward and get her the proper help she so desperalty needs which is so way over due and now her children is suffering...Angelina trying to change Pax into a Girl,Shiloh into a Boy, Giving Shiloh a dead bird for as a present...No f*cking lie this has come out of Angelina own mouth so don't even try to denied this shi!t....Her Daddy tried to get her help along time ago and the results is now damaging her children because she refused......This trianlge that has been going on for what 6 years now is so overrated and We have Angeloonie and her Lover Brother James Haven...and oh bye the way James Haven and Rupert Everett are lovers.....ROTFLMAO no lie and this little jab that he did to Jennifer is really pathetic on his part because what exactly has he done that makes him so Great apart from being James Haven lover and Angelina What????? He has to be getting something from her to make him say this?????? just remember when she was asked it is not important to be absolutely loyal to one’s partner in order to maintain a perfect relationship. Angelina replied she did not believe in restricting anyone’s life on the basis of some principle. She feels that it is important to provide ample space to one’s partner, even if that extends to compromising on one’s fidelity. She does not believe that being in a relationship means that they have to be bound to each other all the time, and that it is okay to wander now and then. the couple has been going strong over the years. The secret, as can be gleaned from Angelina Jolie’s candid confession, lies in their open relationship.
