Rupert Everett: Jennifer Aniston Movies are 'Tasteless' and 'Total Flops'

Everett, 51, was making a larger point that Hollywood tends to stick with certain so-called "A-list" start, despite underperforming at the box office, and used Aniston to illustrate his point.

"If you look and analyze the careers of many, many stars, you'll find that they're mostly sustained by the business," Everett argued. "You'll find there's lots of women and lots of men in the business that the powers that be decide are right for their business, and they'll stand with them for quite a long time."

"OK, something will go wrong, like Jennifer Aniston will have one too many total flops, but she's still a member of that club," Everett continued. "And she will still manage like a star forming in the universe, things will swirl around her and it will suddenly solidify into another vital tasteless rom-com, a little glitter next to the Crab Nebula."

But Aniston wasn't the only major star who found themselves in Everett's crosshairs. He also took a swipe at The King's Speech star Colin Firth.

"Colin Firth I don't think was at all good in Mamma Mia! I would have thought it was almost a careericide," Everett said. "On the other hand, I think his performance in A Single Man was the best performance of his life."
