Russians Object to Rupert Everett Playing Straight

[attachment=1] - Poor Rupert Everett can't catch a break.

First, Rupert laments the fact that he's too old to get attention at gay bars. Now, the Russians are objecting to Rupert Everett starring in a movie about a Russian Heterosexual. Maybe you should have stayed in the closet Rupert. Just because someone calls a magazine Out, you don't have to adopt that as a business strategy.

Part of the problem is the story's sanctity in the canon of Russian literature. And Quiet Flows the Don is an epic novel, comparable to Tolstoy's War and Peace, written by Mikhail Sholokhov between 1926 and 1940. It won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1965. It tells the story of a Cossack fighter, Grigory Melekhov, and his tragic struggle for survival and love against the backdrop of the First World War, the Russian Revolution and the Russian civil war.
