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.

What an absolute douchebag. Anyone that joins the army to try and restore peace in the world should have our utmost respect not the drivel that comes out of Rupert's mouth. Obviously he's got a lot of time on his hands because no movie studio in their right mind would want to hire this idiot.

He's British you idiots.

You Americans are so stupid and have absolutely no sense of humour or irony or sarcasm. That's why nobody likes you.

You are obviously idiots who didn't get what he was saying.

This wanker needs a good hot cup of shut the F*ck up! Better yet, he would be wise to remember the old saying, "Better to be silent and have people think you're a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I repeat: He's an absolute WANKER.

He is allowed to have and express his opinion. What he is not allowed to do is fight for his country. The UK is as against having homosexuals serve in the military as the US is. When I served my country, I did not complain one time, not one time in five years about how hard it was. I was just glad to have the opportunity to fight for my country's freedom. It is the gays that are stereotyped to be weak. What have you done in your life?

No matter the country of origin, you always hear idiots like this talking smack who've never served in reality but only served on a Hollyweird set. Shut the "f" up!

To downgrade our soldiers for asking for body armor is a total disrespect of our all volunteer military. What;s wrong with wanting body armor if it's available? Should our law enforcement officers be deprived of body armor because it wasn't available 70 years ago?

He's Boring now    

So will all those English tough guy Soccer fans pummell this gay man to nothingness? Please do, there is no sense in beating each other simply because you follow a different team---save your energy for those who give gayness the bad name it seems to deserve. Gay men should be more thankful for their ability to choose---theres enough muslims now in England they better start being careful because if the Radical ones have their way, gay men will be the first people to be murdered.

How dare this gay man say such absurd things about who has given him the freedom he enjoys today. And that goes for those who kept Hitler from England.

All I have to do is think about Prince Harry and his blokes and what a fine job they do for the Queens of their country.

Rupert is an idiot - but the comments made by those two even bigger idiots, Maria and (especially) Grady, are inexcusable:
All gay men are sissies, Maria?
Looking at him makes you want to take an HIV test, Grady?
Unbelievable.

12. 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.

Grady, heterosexual women (like your mother) are the fastest growing group of folks infected with HIV, ya foul bigot.
