Rupert Everett is one of the UK's leading actors and has starred in films including 'My Best Friend's Wedding', 'The Madness of King George' and 'Another Country'.Author Location: Middlesex, UK.
Everett's performance in 1997's My Best Friend's Wedding turned the camaraderie between gay men and straight women into a mainstream pop culture staple. However, 2000's The Next Best Thing landed with a thud, and Everett quickly exited the rarefied air of stardom. Reading his new memoir, the veteran actor of stage and screen oozes rakish charm, a gossipy court jester providing wickedly witty-if not particularly consequential-commentary on show business shenanigans. Everett glibly dishes the dirt on such co-stars as Faye Dunaway, who Everett confides has earned the nickname "done fade away" among backstage insiders, and Sharon Stone, who coaches the skeptical Everett on channeling the aura of a character. Everett, whose family background steeped him in an Edwardian stiff-upper-lip ethos, does occasionally pause for reflection on pain and loss, especially his experiences in the waning days of the South Beach party scene. A guilty pleasure, albeit a rather sophisticated and tony offshoot of the species, this will primarily appeal to listeners who appreciate the E! cable network and In Style magazine.

'A genuinely puzzling and deeply unsettling thriller. Anne Holt is the latest crime writer to reveal how truly dark it gets in Scandinavia' Val McDermid ?A thoughtful, tense novel ... This is the first of a new series. I look forward to the subsequent ones? Peter Gutteridge, OBSERVER
Never mind the plain brown wrapping of a title, Everett offers tales of a rich and wild life that has included acting in Shakespeare in Love, befriending Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger, and watching the Berlin Wall fall. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
