Here’s the guy to invite to your Christmas Party… just make sure to check the guest list once or twice!

Just call him Prince Not so Charming..

If you’re Christmas party gets bogged down with a lack enthusiasm, or wild repartee, then here’s the guy to invite to get things hopping.

Rupert Everett, the British Actor perhaps most well known from his efforts with the Shrek series has been a busy boy, badmouthing the Hollywood elites and culture of the California entertainment factory.

Rupe will have you laughing in the aisles as you listen in to his observations on those that rule the roost (and some that have dropped from view) in Hollywood, compiling a list of those who he has a nasty barb for that should guarantee that he’ll be finding it hard to find work in that town in the foreseeable future.

Among some of Everett’s more cutting remarks include:

On Hollywood: "Hollywood is a place that pretends it's very liberal but it's not remotely. It's like al-Qaida."

On Hollywood’s treatment of the sexes: "If you compare being a 70-year-old woman to a 70-year-old man, the old woman will maybe get to play a grandmother. The old man will do a film with a 20-year-old girl."

On those who suffer dependency issues: "A 50-year-old male drug addict will be supported. Female alcoholics and drug addicts are absolutely rejected."

Film making in Hollywood: "Making films in Hollywood is "like being in Afghanistan."

On George Clooney: “[Clooney] is not the brightest spark on the boulevard. He’ll be president one day. Mark my words, if he’s straight, he’ll be president.”

On Clooney’s Oceans 11 franchise: “Clooney thinks that, provided he does films which are politically committed, he’s allowed to do Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13. But the Ocean’s movies are a cancer to world culture. They’re destroying us."

Al Pacino gets a blast as well: "Al Pacino looks like a mad old freak now. I say, give it a rest, or go and do some serious stuff.”

And finally on why the public sits through so much of what he finds contemptible these days: "Why? Because we're sheep, we just follow the herd ... It's just part of the huge amount of product that's put out now that's really bad. And it's our fault. We're all responsible for how the culture is. You can't draw a distinction between the celebrity nonsense on television and the film industry."

One thing is certain if Rupert’s at your party; there will be no need to spike the egg nog!
