Rupert Everett - Why Madonna Terminated Our Friendship

Things reportedly came to a head in 2006 when Rupert published alleged, intimate details involving Madonna and Sean Penn in his memoir Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, which she took exception to.

Madonna never forgave him.

'She really didn't like it (the book). I think it is very affectionate, and certainly with her I was very careful to only write things that were. But she felt it was an infringement of privacy,' he said.

'Goddesses like that are obsessed with their public image and want to control everything about it, so if anyone is to tell anyone anything about her it's got to be her.'

'Elephants don't forget... She doesn't trust me any more,' he went on to say.

'We don't see each other anymore. I do miss it.

'She's an amazing person and that part of my life was incredibly exciting. To be doing a film with her and to be a friend of hers and to have been such a fan of hers.'

They're both idiots. The original screenplay for that film they made together was highly respected as it made its way through Hollywood. But then the two of them insisted on stupid changes--like Madonnas character being a yoga teacher (because she was into yoga during that "incarnation")--and the script quickly spun into retard territory. Not that either were capable of keeping an Oscar-qualty script on that level with their limited acting capacities.

Miss Rupert has some loose lips and it cost him his two highest profile faghags. Didn't he also have a falling out with Julia?

Madonna can't keep friends. And yet Rupert seems like someone she could stay friends with since they have lots in common - they're both shallow narcissists obsessed with their looks.

They should catch up and compare notes and go through each of their plastic surgeries which have turned them into hideous monsters.

I'm sure Rupert enjoyed their time. He got to sing on American Pie and be part of the Madonna fame since she was enjoying a rebirth after Ray of Light, although American Pie/Next Best Thing were the worst parts of her second imperial phase.

R19 he trashed and gave stories about Madonna and Julia in the same book I believe. I'm sure it was part of the book deal since he was close with both at the height of their fame and who really wants to read about his slutty, gossipy life without dishing about famous friends. If I remember correctly he said two were actually quite similar. Whatever that meant. Needless to say the both promptly dropped the backstabbing queen.

I will never forget the cycle of thoughts and emotions I experienced while watching The Next Best Thing on an airplane...this is the worst acting I have ever she supposed to be English because he’s English? Wait, is she American? Why is she talking like this? Wow, this script...this was meant to be a Lifetime TV movie, right? Oh, God, this script. Oh, God, this acting. This is bad enough that it should be fun. Is it supposed to be campy? No, it’s supposed to be serious. Madonna acts harder than anyone. It’s practically a physical assault. Did someone get paid to write this? Well, that was the very worst movie I have ever seen in my life. Oh, Madonna.

Richard Dreyfuss playing a gay man? I'm so fucking glad that didn't happen. He's the most unappealing actor in all ways.

As for old British fag actors like Everett, I much prefer those with talent like Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. Also John Barrowman, who deserves a bigger career before he gets too old.

by Anonymousreply 2810/18/2020

did Rupert fuck over both his faghags? Fun fact from his book he said both Madonna and Julia have a masculine energy in their way of being. I think he said I'd they smelled masculine. Regardless he's an asshole for telling stories he shouldn't be telling when you are hanging with A listers. It's common knowledge you don't talk about it especially when you are talking about the top musical act and actress in Hollwood.

He made a judgment call to exploit his relationship to sell books, that’s all. I’m sure his publisher demanded it and that his book deal was contingent upon some level of Madonna exposé for promotional purposes. So he sold her out to make a little money. Nothing she wouldn’t do, but some people who are not expert con artists still suffer consequences for their betrayals in this world.

Madonna blamed the director John Schlesinger for not being able to act on The Next Best Thing.

John said it was the worst experience he had directing a movie, because Madonna would get insulted and run off to her trailer when he tried to give her advice on how to play a scene. And Rupert would stick up for her regardless of whether she was right or wrong. He basically destroyed his own career by being Madonna's faghag.

I don't see how whether the character being a swim teacher or a yoga instructor really could sink or make a success of a poorly written film.

R59 that sounds right. John was an esteemed Oscar winning director who knew how to get the best out of actors, and Madonna was so far up her own ass, she thought she could do no wrong. She got the movie career she deserved.

Imagine questioning the notes of John Schlesinger for your acting? Um, who do you think has more experience and insight, Madonna?

The change to yoga instructor was just complete narcissism and laziness on Madonna's part. Everyone knew she was into yoga at the time so there was no stretch. I've always wondered if Madonna dropped out of Music of the Heart because she knew nobody would believe her as a teacher.

by Anonymousreply 6710/18/2020

I don't think it's pure laziness or arrogance. Madonna has tremendous anxiety. One of her impersonators analyzed her vocal inflections and the way Madonna speaks gives it away. She's a dreadful actress outside a very small range (Susan and League, basically).

by Anonymousreply 6810/18/2020

I think it was working with Madge that killed Schlesinger: he had a heart bypass shortly before the filming started and a major stroke a few months after the premiere, probably brought on by the stress of working on this project and the bad reviews .

You say "no" to Madonna or piss her off just once and she cuts you out of her life permanently. Her kids, Rosie and Debi being the rare exceptions.

Debi M was always kind of a downtown punk. I love her style and she's aged well. She was always a women with some curves and seemed very separate from Madonna. She always seemed like she didn't give a fuck about Madonna's fame. Even if it's an act, she's good at it but I think she is real. She was so hot as this lesbian dominatrix in Gregg Araki's "Nowhere".

What intimate details could he have known? Sean and Madonna broke-up in Jan. '89.

It must have been stuff she told him, so if you don't want people talking- don't tell them anything.

But methinks she wanted to shed him in 2006 because his star had faded and he was getting older. She just needed an excuse.

She always wants people younger than herself around to make her look younger. We're talking about a woman in her sixties who constantly posts airbrushed pics of herself, the latest one of her with pink hair.
