(KP International) Rupert Everett is the latest celebrity to reveal shocking secrets in a new autobiography.
In addition to admitting to an affair with Oscar winner Susan Sarandon and an obsession with Madonna, the openly gay actor confesses to a string of affairs with women.
The real shocker, however, is the fact that one of these women, Paula Yates, was married to Sir Bob Geldof at the time.
In his book, Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, Everett reportedly writes, "I am mystified by my heterosexual affairs but then I am mystified by most of my relationships." About Yates being a married woman, he said, "That side of our relationship was tenuous to say the least, and our lives went in different directions."
An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before he swept to fame with his outstanding performances in such popular films as My Best Friend's Wedding and Shakespeare in Love. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism; in Berlin the night the wall came down; and in downtown Manhattan on September 11th. By the age of 17 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. 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 in the fast lane.
