Actor and author Rupert Everett has been honoured with the Sheridan Morley Prize for theatre biography for his second tell-all memoir, Vanished Years.

The My Best Friend's Wedding star received the $3,200 (£2,000) prize at a Garrick Club ceremony in London on Wednesday after a panel of judges declared he was a "clear winner".

Everett beat out five other authors for the 2013 award. They included Michael Pennington, late West Side Story playwright Arthur Laurents and Simon Callow.
