Red carpets and other banana skins

Just a quick note to remind you that I'm hosting a conversation with actor and writer Rupert Everett at the Athenaeum Theatre in Collins Street tonight at 6pm. I'm not the least bit nervous - certainly I didn't wake up in a cold sweat last night after a dream that I was running two hours late for the event. No, really, I didn't.

Rupe and I will be discussing his life, his career, and his new autobiography Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, described by fellow thespian Simon Callow, "A startling self-portrait, unapologetic but not in the least confessional, in-depth but not analytical, of someone who has done exactly what he has wanted when he has wanted, and to hell with the consequences ... superb ...”

Tickets from Readings Bookshop - hope you can make it!

Any mention of why he did not mention in 'Red Carpets' his role as Marlowe in "Shakespeare in Love" or why he was not credited in the movie?

Rupert Everett used to work out at my gym.

Just so you know.

If he mentioned me in his book, tell him "the eagle has landed among the pine trees".

He'll know what this means.
