Actor Rupert Everett has announced he is sterile as a result of having a full head of hair.
A medication he takes to combat baldness has rendered Rupert bald in another respect. Yesterday's MetroUK reported:
"Everett, now approaching 50 says, 'I take medication for Alopecia. It means I don't have any sperm left. If I stop taking the pills, all my hair will fall out, but I would rather have hair than sperm."'
Since Evert is openly gay the idea of reproducing probably was never very high on his agenda. Still, it's a dilemma. "I can be hirstute, or I can reproduce... hm... where's my mousse?"
