Rupert Everett: Looks boosted my career

Rupert Everett

Rupert Everett believes his "good looks" and "aggressive" personality led to his movie star success.

The British actor has appeared in a number of high-profile films including My Best Friend's Wedding and The Next Best Thing.

Rupert has explained the secret to his Hollywood accomplishments.

"I was quite good-looking when I was young - that gets you a long way in showbusiness and I was also quite aggressive," he told the UK edition of OK! magazine.

"There was nothing miraculous that happened to me really."

Rupert dropped out of boarding school when he was 16. The 53-year-old star - who is renowned for his outspoken nature - says there were definite periods of his life where he struggled to "escape" his privileged upbringing.

"Yes, I suppose so," he said.

"I was a very difficult character as a kid - neurotic, anxious, more difficult than I am now, though I can still be quite difficult. But no more difficult than a lot of people that I've worked with."

Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
