Rupert Everett trashes his boss in magazine interview with the usual consequences

July 27, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Actor Rupert Everett who’s currently garnering rave reviews on Broadway for his role in the Noel Coward revival of Blithe Spirit, won’t have his other part-time job to fall back on anymore.  Known for his outrageous candor, which is another way of saying he does no internal filtering before he speaks, Rupert, was in the headlines last week for calling the late Michael Jackson a freak. While his quotes caused some ripples, it’s his interview with The Daily Beast (it’s a good read) where he slipped in some trash talk about his Vanity Fair boss Graydon Carter that has gotten Rupert fired.

In the interview when asked about his job at Vanity Fair as a contributing editor, Rupert went on a colorful rant calling the magazine’s editor Graydon a fat “weird character.” However, he did surmise that Graydon might be a good lover, judging by the screams of passion coming from his room from an unknown woman, when they stayed in the same hotel once. In typical Rupert fashion he quipped: “The next day I went down to breakfast and Graydon came in and I thought to myself, well, now I understand why you are always acting so entitled and walking on air even though you’re rather fat. It’s because grazing the grass between your legs is this appendage of yours. I did rather politely tell him that morning that I thought he was a very good f**k.”

Apparently Graydon didn’t fire Rupert on the spot or didn’t remember he even worked for him, but on reading or hearing about the Daily Beast Interview:

“When his remarks reminded Graydon that Rupert was still listed, it seemed some housecleaning was in order,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper.

“Rupert regrets being so indiscreet,”  added a magazine insider. “He’s coming to the end of his Broadway run in Blithe Spirit, so money is tight.

If that last part of the quote is true, they don’t pay actors as much as I thought or Rupert is a very big spender.
