Picks and Pans Review: Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins
by Rupert Everett
REVIEWED BY JOANNA POWELL
In this cheeky, behind-the-velvet-rope chronicle, the British actor flaunts what he calls “an unwritten Hollywood Law: Think it but never say it.” From Madonna (she “came out of the womb blowing a disco whistle”) to Sharon Stone (“I was scared of her, rather as a dog is scared of a changeable master”) to Julia Roberts (who “sometimes would rear up like an untamed filly”), Everett’s spot-on observations are wickedly unapologetic. His is a glamorous story, rich in character and deliciously told.
