Mangled Everett Praises "Stardust"

Suave looker Rupert Everett sacrifices his good looks in the Neil Gaiman comic book adaptation "Stardust." In Matthew Vaughn‘s film, Everett’s character remains grotesque through the duration of the film.

"He’s a prince who’s about to inherit the kingdom," said Everett. "Then his brother pushes him off the side of a roof and he becomes a ghost. He’s dead through the whole movie as a ghost. I’m a special effect and not only am I a ghost, I’m a ghost that’s fallen on the ground in a funny way so my head’s all splattered."

It was worth it though because Everett felt Vaughn did such a great job with the film. Though he never read the graphic novel, Everett saw something special on the screen.

"It’s a really good film too. I’m not just saying that because I’m here. It’s a film about the real world and the parallel universe alongside the real world. It’s just beautifully made. The director is someone I’ve known since he was seven or eight years old, so that’s probably why I said I’m not just saying it because I’ve known him since he was a kid. It’s just a great story and it’s very romantic and very funny and just when I saw it, I thought, ‘Oh, it is a really, really good movie.’ You’ll see."
