We just found some more crazy quotes from him bashing the United States now. This guy must have been drunk when they interviewed him:

Most people will say "Rupert Everett WHO"? This is not a household name. I saw him in one good movie, 10 years ago with Julia Roberts. He is not a star. He is barely an actor and a whiny little 6itch himself.

As for the 'whiny troops', considering the stupid war they were sent to, and the low quality equipment they were sent with, they have EVERY REASON TO WHINE to the cowardly politicians who so nonchalantly sent them into such a dangerous and pointless war.

He was the voice of Price Charming in the Shrek movies.

I found his comment rude and immature. My dad was in the Persian Gulf War. Has Mr Everett ever served?? I think not.

He must have served. Why else would he be known as Captain Colon?

He’s an “actor” wow what a difficult challenging job he has, and for such little pay.
Face it, actors are as disconnected from reality as politicians, they live in a pampered over compensated fantasy world.

How about we let Sean Penn fight on the front lines in Afghanistan, see how that works out.

The source for the story is the Daily Mail. I seriously doubt that it's accurate.

Being gay he is not a 100% man, being an actor no one has heard of, so as a person, his opinion amounts to nothing. He needs to change his vocation and go to the front, see for himself what it means to shoot or be shot. People like him should be ignored.
