Family First Comment: Finally someone in Hollywood gets it!
“Everett, currently starring in the BBC1 show The Musketeers, told the Sunday Times magazine: “I really wanted to be a girl. Thank God the world of now wasn’t then, because I’d be on hormones and I’d be a woman. After I was 15 I never wanted to be a woman again.” He believes parents who “get medical” are scary, saying: “It’s nice to be allowed to express yourself, but the hormone thing, very young, is a big step. I think a lot of children have an ambivalence when they’re very young to what sex they are or what they feel about everyone. And there should be a way of embracing it.” “
The actor Rupert Everett has warned about the dangers of children having gender reassignment operations, suggesting there should be a way for them to embrace the “ambivalence” of their gender rather than resorting to medical procedures.
The 57-year-old, who is gay, revealed he wanted to be a girl as he grew up and dressed exclusively as one when he was a child. He suggested that Caitlyn Jenner, the TV personality and Olympian who was formerly Bruce Jenner, had made a mistake in undergoing gender transition and had “no clue” what being transsexual involved.

He also spoke of how his former girlfriend Beatrice Dalle, the French actor, thought she might have been pregnant with his child. Everett told the magazine: “She and I often talk about what would have happened if we’d both had this child. And I would have loved to have had that child, actually. God, it probably would have been in rehab by now.”
He also revealed that he was “turning into his mother”, and planned to move back in with her in Norfolk.
