Rupert Everett: Madonna  is the anti-Christ

Rupert Everett thinks Madonna is "the anti-Christ".

The 57-year-old actor was a good friend of the chart-topping singer at the height of his Hollywood career, but admitted that having been raised as a Roman Catholic, he thought she represented the opposite values of his faith.

He shared: "Being brought up a Catholic, and in a monastery, I used to have visions of Our Lady as a child. I thought: I'm meant to kill Madonna because she was the anti-Christ."

Rupert's high-profile friendship with the pop superstar unravelled after he wrote that she looked like "a Picasso" and behaved like an "old, whiny barmaid" when stressed in his first memoir in 2006.

But the actor has refused to apologise for those remarks, insisting he was being "generous" about her, and recalled another embarrassing story about the star.

He told the Sunday Times newspaper: "I thought what I said about her was very charming and generous. But she was furious that I said that, in 1985, I went out to dinner with her and Sean Penn and she was w****** him off under the table. So what? I thought it was rather romantic!"

Meanwhile, Rupert has also taken aim at Caitlyn Jenner, saying she has made a terrible mistake by undergoing a gender transition.

The actor claimed the former Olympian had "no clue" what being a transsexual involves.

He said: "When she discovered everyone was either a drug addict or a prostitute, she was absolutely horrified."

Rupert added: "I don't think she's a woman. She's a cross-dressing man."
