Rupert Everett
Name : Rupert Everett
Height : 6' 4" (193 cm)
Date of Birth : 29 May 1959
Place of Birth : Norfolk, England, UK
 
Biography:
 
Born in Norfolk, England, to a wealthy family on 29 May 1959, Rupert Everett was sent away for schooling at the age of seven. Taught at Amplesforth College, Everett was a good student and trained to be a classical pianist. After he discovered acting at the age of 15, he dropped out of school, and ran off to London, where he supported himself as a prostitute for a couple of years (something he admitted in a 1997 interview with US magazine) and eventually enrolled at the Central School of Speech and Drama.

Unfortunately, Everett clashed frequently with instructors and eventually dropped out, choosing to flee to Scotland. It was there that he got his first professional job as an apprentice with the Citizen's Theatre of Glasgow. In 1985, he starred with Miranda Richardson in Dance With a Stranger, turning in a strong performance.

1997 marked the turning point in Everett's career. This British actor conquered Hollywood with his turn as the handsome, elegant, and gay George who dances off into the sunset with Julia Roberts in My Best Friend's Wedding. Everett himself had been openly gay for some years. He caused something of a sensation among male and female filmgoers alike, who wanted more of the handsome actor with the languorous wit.

1999 also proved to be a very fruitful year for the actor - who by this time was being hailed as Hollywood's Gay Prince - as it featured the actor in leading roles in three films. He first played Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Next came An Ideal Husband, where he starred as the delightfully idle Lord Goring. Finally, he starred as the resident villain of Inspector Gadget, once again demonstrating to audiences why it could feel so good to be so bad.
