"I was a slut," Rupert Everett tells the Sunday Times. "I loved sex." When the interviewer asks if he was promiscuous because he just really loved sex or if he was rebelling against his Catholic upbringing, Everett replies, "Both. You were told [at Catholic boarding school] that if you get a hard-on, you should turn over and say a Hail Mary. You somehow make it work for yourself, but it gives you lots of bubbles inside. I wanted to tear everything down, and the way I found to do it was sex. [My sexual partners] didn't necessarily have to be attractive. It depends how the lights are hitting you and how the drinks are hitting you. My whole life was about sex, really, in one way or another."
