Per the bio in Wikipedia:

'In 2009, Everett told British newspaper The Observer that he wished he had never come out of the closet as he feels that it hurt his career and advises younger actors not to:

" The fact is that you could not be, and still cannot be, a 25-year-old homosexual trying to make it in the British film business or the American film business or even the Italian film business. It just doesn't work and you're going to hit a brick wall at some point. You're going to manage to make it roll for a certain amount of time, but at the first sign of failure they'll cut you right off... Honestly, I would not advise any actor necessarily, if he was really thinking of his career, to come out."'

Right, Rupert, tell that to Ian McKellan!
