May 16th, 2013 3:37pm EDT
Rupert Everett
Rupert Everett has shunned sex and drugs to regain his energy.

The 53 year-old Everett, who recently wrote a memoir titled "Vanished Years," says that the time he spent in his youth partying and indulging were enough.

The openly-gay actor tells The New York Times Style Magazine, "I always thought I'd be found, aged 70, in a tie-dyed T-shirt haunting a toilet or at some rave in Miami. I didn't see myself ever stopping that kind of lifestyle, because I loved it so much. I can't think of anything worse than going out now... I find people who take drugs quite irritating now."

September 21st, 2012 4:30pm EDT
Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton got herself into a pickle this week by slamming gays who use the Grindr app, which allows people to "find local gay, bi and curious guys for dating or friends." A taxi cab driver recorded her saying about gay men, "They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."

Ouch.

The socialite immediately released a statement, which reads in part: "I was having this private conversation with a friend of mine who is gay and our conversation was in no way towards the entire gay community. It is the last thing that I would ever want to do and I cannot put into words how much ...

Rupert Everett has become the latest gay star to speak openly about the downside of coming out, revealing he was shunned by Hollywood after he declared he was a homosexual.

His comments come just days after veteran Richard Chamberlain went public wi...

Woody Harrelson is perfect as Tallahassee, the fearless badass with nothing to lose. He's ...
