Rupert Everett Says He And Madonna Are Still Friends, Even After He Called Her A “Whiny Old Barmaid”
You’re probably looking at the above picture, and thinking, “Who is that lovely couple? Are they famous?” Well, yes. It’s actually Rupert Everett and Madonna over twenty years ago. Before the surgeons got to their faces. And before Rupert called Madonna a “whiny old barmaid” in his 2006 bio, “Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins”. But last week, during an appearance on the British talk show, Lorraine, Rupert insisted he and Madonna are actually still friends.
Before all you young tricks were stinking up Saturday afternoon TBS with marathons of How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and Bring It On, there was a rom-com for those of us cynical tricks who believe there isn’t so much happily ever after as it is happily gay and hag ever after. My Best Friend’s Wedding both warped my expectations of what a writer’s salary can be (Julia, how are you affording that fancy New York lifestyle on a food critic budget?) and made me want to get married just for the sake of having an Aretha Franklin sing-a-long in a lobster restaurant. It’s been 22 years (!!) since the movie came out, and the cast reunited to give the dirty details on how the movie was made…and remind everyone what a salty gay Rupert Everett is!
Matt Damon already shat up his eyeroll-inducing thoughts on racial diversity in Hollywood, and now he’s back to shit up his thoughts about how actors should keep their sexuality and private lives to themselves. Matt Damon definitely practices what he preaches, because he has always been an enigma wrapped in seven layers of mystery. His rep has NEVER issued statements about his private life and he’s NEVER brought his wife or husband to an event. We know nothing about Matt Damon’s life!
