Rupert Everett: An Army of Dumb

6/8/2008 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rupert EverettWhy can't egocentric actors just learn to shut their mouths?

English idiot Rupert Everett just bashed British soldiers by saying, "They are always whining about the dangers of being killed. Oh my God, they are such whimps now!"

Unfortunately, he continued on. "The whole point of being the Army is wanting to get killed, wanting to test yourself to the limits," he told the Telegraph. "Now you have to fly 15,000 ft. above the war zone to avoid getting hit. I don't think there is any point in having wars if that's how you're going to behave. It's pathetic. All this whining!"

Because it's real tough being an actor.

UPDATE: Everett must have realized how dumb he sounded, because he has since apologized for his remarks.

Um..yea    

Yea, what little if you could call it respect I had for him just went down the drain....pair him up with Sharon Stone and I'm sure both their ego's and intelligence could solve all the worlds problems.

He's right to some degree.

Like all the handwringing over body armor or armor for humvees

They didn't have body armor or armored vehicals when the boys hit the Normandy beach.

Don't join the Army if all you want is the paycheck

LOL    

He is absolutely correct - soldiers nowadays whine and moan about how tough things are. Soldiers in WWII and before didn't.

He is going to be excoriated because he's politically incorrect. More's the pity.

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

What a stupid dumbass. I guess you don't have to be smart to be an actor these days; maybe that's why mental midgets like he & Sharon "I got Kharma-ized" Stone went into acting. I guess it's better than having to actually do anything or think to make a living...

How dare he accuse the soldiers of being a Sissy.

Who is a bigger sissy than a gay man ?!? He is gay for God's sake! He wears high heels and lipstick for
other men!

This gay man is nothing but a bitch on wheels.

He has some nerve...People don't join the Service to die. They do it to serve and protect their country. Nobody joins the Army WANTING to die. Damn idiot.

This from a skanky positive ex prostitute who became an "actor" friend of Madonna's. Real nice. Just looking at him makes me feel like I need to go get an HIV test.

Remember, all these people "volunteered" to go to war for our country, and no one is forcing them to go. And also remember~ there is no draft in the United States at the present time! It's all voluntere.......

4&5...the weapons and technology were also less advanced then they are now. Mr Everett seems to have little personal experiance in this area to back up his comments.
