9780316732239: RED CARPETS AND OTHER BANANA SKINS

An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before he first rose to fame with his outstanding performance in Another Country. He has spent his life surrounded by extraordinary people, and has witnessed extraordinary events. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism; in Berlin the night the wall came down; and at home in downtown Manhattan on September 11th. By the age of seventeen he was friends with Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger, and since then he has been up close and personal with some of the most famous women in the world: Julia Roberts, Madonna, Sharon Stone, and Donatella Versace. Whether sweeping the stage for the Royal Shakespeare Company or costarring with Faye Dunaway and an orangutan in Dunstan Checks In (they both took ages to get ready), Rupert Everett always brings as much energy and talent to his life as he does to his career. Who else has lived in Paris with Beatrice Dalle, modelled for Versace and Valentino, been possessed by the spirit of Anthony Perkins, and played bridge with Christopher Isherwood? A superb raconteur and a keen observer of human folly (especially his own), Rupert Everett turns his life into a captivating story of love, nostalgia, fame, glamour, gossip, and drama. From the eccentricities of the British upper classes to the madness of Hollywood, from the Russian steppes to an Easter egg hunt in Elizabeth Taylor's garden, Everett reveals himself as a consummate storyteller and a charming guide to life lived in the fast lane.

From AudioFile:

British actor Rupert Everett (ANOTHER COUNTRY) has lived both a typical and atypical life among Hollywood stars. He's familiar with the politics and gossip, but his status as an openly gay man in Hollywood sets him apart. From his beginning years in the industry to his most recent films, Everett reveals some of the outrageous as well as the sober sides of life in front of the lens. His acting experience makes him an obvious choice as a narrator. Everett delivers his memoir in a soft and sinewy voice that encourages listeners to believe they're getting an insider's view. With ease, he sets aside his English accent in order to make clear transitions between his narrative and character voices.
