Rupert Everett has blamed his sexual preferences for hindering his Hollywood career. The My Best Friend's Wedding star insists if he wasn't gay, he would enjoy similar success to fellow British actor Hugh Grant - because he is just as good on the big screen. He says, "It's not ideal to be homosexual in my business. For instance, I'm every bit as good as Hugh Grant, and I can do the same sort of thing, but look at the roles he gets. "He's always working, and I work hardly ever."
