Rupert Everett grateful to be gay, otherwise perpetually divorced

British actor Rupert Everett is not a shy guy.  If you have ever seen his interviews, they detour off into strange, strange places.  Now, the lanky Brit has told the Telegraph (UK) he has credited his gay lifestyle with allowing him to maintain his sanity.

Everett, 48, says if he wasn’t gay, his out-of-control sex drive would make him a serial womaniser addicted to sex, drugs and orgies.

He told the Telegraph, “It’s just as well I’m gay. If I was straight, I’d be a hopeless mad movie star who f**ks everything that moves. That’s what I’d be like – married to every single girl that I’d worked with, on wife number 10 by now, always being sued for divorce because I’d been caught with two chicks somewhere.”

“Or I’d be like a rapper – three girls at the same time, coke, orgies, yachts. I would be a monster, actually. I’d have to be competitive on a lad level with all those other male movie stars.”
