Owch! Rupert Everett has written a new memoir and he dishes on everyone in his life. He basically says Madonna is glamorous bitch. Not a total surprise, though plastic-surgery loving Rupert is a bit'o'cunt himself. Here is a big juicy exceprt from the book and some choice bits:
On her rudeness at a dinner party:
Madonna was approaching the dizzy pinnacle of fame, and at those heights you don’t bother to disguise your feelings. If she was bored, she let you know. Manners were something she discarded at base camp.
She didn’t seem comfortable with the older generation, like Tony (Richardson) and Candice (Bergen). She knew how everyone her own age reacted to her but anyone older looked at her from another angle and that scared her.
Madonna and Alek were only interested in each other. They were in the middle of their triumphant collaboration, Truth Or Dare, and after dinner they huddled in a corner talking on their cellphones, making high-flying Hollywood plans.
On Guy Ritchie vs. Christopher Ciccone:
This night marked the beginning of the end for Madonna and her younger brother, Christopher Ciccone. They had been inseparable in childhood and she had taken him with her to the material world, where he had provided a solid raft in the shark-infested waters.
He had a blunt, aggressive manner, and he often looked as though he was laughing at you, particularly when he was drunk, but underneath he was vulnerable and funny. To know her at all you had to know him. But he and Guy were from different planets, and in a way the one’s success relied on the other not being there.
Others were also on the way out. Guy was not particularly comfortable with queens, and so it was a last call for a lot of the disco bunnies and club-mix queens who made up the fabric of Madonna’s mantle.
It was a surprise, because Madonna came out of the womb blowing a disco whistle. But a whole aspect of her life was about to be hit by the delete button.
On Madonna meeting Julia Roberts:
Julia Roberts appeared out of an explosion of flashlight, looking glossy and unruffled. ‘Hi, I’m Julia,’ she said with a huge smile. ‘I know who you are,’ said Madonna icily.If you care, watch this recent video of Rupert talking about Mrs. Ritchie or their "duet" (cough) on "American Pie"
