Rupert Everett has called Caitlyn Jenner ignorant of the real meaning of being a transexual and her choice to transition was a ‘terrible mistake’.
The Ideal Husband actor who is gay advised parents with children who were already questioning their sexuality or struggling with their identity to have reservations before choosing hormone therapy or sex change options for their children as ‘children should be able to embrace the “ambivalence” of their gender without resorting to medical procedures.’
“It’s nice to be allowed to express yourself, but the hormone thing, very young, is a big step,” he said. “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,” Rupert said.
While talking to press, the 57-year-old narrated how he wanted to be a girl while growing up. For eight years, through the ages of six and fourteen, Rupert Everett revealed he dressed exclusively as a girl.
“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,” the Three Musketeers actor said.
On Jenner’s transitioning, Rupert Everett stated the reality TV star, had made a huge mistake in choosing to transition as the Olympian formerly known as Bruce Jenner had “no clue” of what being a transsexual involved.
As far as Rupert is concerned, Caitlyn Jenner is a cross-dressing man. “I don’t think she’s a woman. She’s a cross-dressing man.”
