Gay Hollywood actor accuses the industry of bigotry and of treating gays like second-class citizens

During a Press Association interview, Rupert Everett, star of My Best Friend’s Wedding, described Hollywood as “aggressively heterosexual” and accused the industry of treating gay actors like “second-class citizens.”

Everett said there were numerous big roles he didn’t receive “just for the fact of being gay” despite actors and directors wanting him to be in the film.

“The struggle that has forced me to have has been great, in a way. I think my career as a writer would not have happened if I had been heterosexual, active, working non-stop,” said Everett.

On Wednesday’s episode of “Pat Gray Unleashed,” Pat and Keith discussed Everett’s comments concerning Hollywood’s bigotry.
