Rupert Everett’s candor has cost him a job.
The opinionated queen, who most recently made waves for proclaiming that Michael Jackson is better off dead, has been canned by the bitchy fashionistas at Vanity Fair Magazine, where he was employed as a contributing editor. VF fired Rupert’s ass after he described editor Graydon Carter as a “weird character” who is “rather fat” in a public outburst to British tabloids last week.
“Rupert regrets being so indiscreet,” says an insider. “He’s coming to the end of his Broadway run in Blithe Spirit, so money is tight.”
A Vanity Fair source said: “When his remarks reminded Graydon that Rupert was still listed, it seemed some housecleaning was in order.”
