One of Hollywood's few openly gay actors, Everett defied typecasting in his next several films, turning in a deft cameo as the playwright Christopher Marlowe in the Oscar-winning smash Shakespeare in Love (1998), starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes. Everett also won raves for his portrayal of a roguish aristocrat in the clever 1999 comedy An Ideal Husband,
His less successful efforts included the mediocre A Midsummer Night's Dream (1999), in which he played Oberon, Shakespeare's imperious king of the fairies, opposite Michelle Pfeiffer as the fairy queen, Titania; and a live-action film version of the much-loved cartoon Inspector Gadget (1999), featuring Matthew Broderick as the titular hero and Everett as his nemesis, Doctor Claw.
In 2000, Everett teamed with his good friend Madonna in The Next Best Thing, a poorly received comedy-drama about a woman who decides to raise a child with her best friend, who is homosexual.
Everett owns homes in London, Paris, Miami Beach, and New York City's Greenwich Village. His books include Hello Darling, Are You Working? and 1995's The Hairdressers of St. Tropez.
