DALLAS VOICE MARCH 3, 2000
remaining very candid about his lifestyle. He's
frank about drugs use and fling as a prostitute
in his 20s. He also discusses antics like sending
his pubic hair to an audience member who
was displeased with one of his stage perform-
ances.
It's also not too difficult to dig up an array
of full-frontal shots of him in the buff.
A maturer Everett takes it all in stride.
"I don't think being gay is the whole of the
character or the whole of someone's personali-
ty, but I certainly wouldn't want to be called
'straight/" he says.
The trailers for Next Best Thing depict a
lighthearted, almost silly comedy, very remi-
niscent in tone to My Best Friend's Wedding. But
the last third of Next Best Thing takes a sharp
turn, and the idyllic "gay dad" story gets com-
plicated and rather ugly.
But Everett hopes mainstream America will
walk away with a profound impression
of queer parenting. /=
"I hope people will
think it's funny.
That it's sad
That a
ual man can
just as good
a father
anyone else. ~
And the fact
that he's a
homo does-
n't neces-
sarily dis-
qualify him
from being a
normal
human
being," he
says. "I think
it's strange
seeing a story
about love
and family
and blood,
and I like the
film's mixture
between death
and life. It starts
with a funeral
and goes onto a
birth. I think those
are the things I
like." ▼
The Next Best
Thing opens today in
wide release.
