Today's Blind Items

So I've been thinking of eyebrows a bunch this week and you will see why tomorrow. When I mentioned eyebrows at work yesterday, someone related this to me.

This A list actor was dating someone a few years ago. His girlfriend said that his eyebrows were overgrown and took him to a salon. He agreed to have his brows waxed. Well, our actor didn't like the result at all. So he shaved them completely off. The problem was that he was scheduled to start filming in two days. During the film in which he won an Academy Award, he sports the following looks:

1. Eyebrows colored in with magic marker.
2. Fake eyebrows in one color.
3. Fake eyebrows in a different color.
4. His barely there own eyebrows towards the end of filming.

I thought of my George (Clooney)...

Cyn - What? you didn't know he was MY George?

Stacy said...

Its either Russell Crowe or Adrien Brody. I'm leaning towards Adrien though.

Anonymous said...

Adrien is hardly A-List though.

Either way it's funny, I shaved mine off in 7th grade (can't remember why) and they took FOREVER to grow back...looked like a frickin alien...nice to know I'm not the only idiot out there.

Re: be adequite...

My daughter's 13 and she's practically shaved them off! What is the DEAL??? Thank God my daughter's gorgeous and can pull her new "look" off.

Cyn - heh

My niece did it and she looked like Whoopie Goldberg. Still love her, but seriously she did look like whoopie.

Stacy said...

Adrien Brody is A-List, just because he's not out pimping for the paps every day doesn't make him less.

BTW, Clooney's eyebrows are his trademark. i just don't see him shaving his brows. Maybe it is Crowe...before he got married. He looks like he wouldn't care at all. But maybe somebody like Jack Nicholson in As good as it gets? His eyebrows are usually bushy, he was dating Lara Flynn Boyle at the time, so maybe she tried to get him to wax them and he didn't like the outcome?

Well EL said in the last few years and Jack hasn't won an Oscar since 97. Here is the winners list

2005 Philip Seymour Hoffman Capote
2004 Jamie Foxx Ray
2003 Sean Penn Mystic River
2002 Adrien Brody The Pianist
2001 Denzel Washington Training Day
2000 Russell Crowe Gladiator
1999 Kevin Spacey American Beauty


Spacey and PSH are out, they're gay. Sean Penn and Denzel have been married longer than that, so that leaves Brody, Crow and Foxx.

If you say so Stacy....he's been in how many movies lately? Just because he has an oscar doesn't mean he's a-list...where's Marisa Tomei? Better yet where's Roberto Benigni?

TB

Stacy said...

Obviously your understanding of A-list does NOT match my own, or EL's, so let's just agree to disagree.

Anonymous said...

He might have won an award for supporting role...EL doesn't specify. Here are a few that might fit into A-list.

George Clooney-Syriana
Morgan Freeman-Million Dollar Baby
Tim Robbins-Mystic River
Benicio Del Toro-Traffic

Philip Seymour Hoffman is not gay...he played a gay man. He's got a girlfriend and they have a child.

Stacy you got a point. I'll agree to disagree with you. Who knows you could be right?

I'm thinking Jamie Foxx is the rash and impulsive one.

"Spacey and PSH are out, they're gay"
Er, no. Spacey may well be gay, but he refuses to discuss the subject of his sexuality. That's not what I would call 'out'. As for Hoffman - see post from Pusssykatt, above.
I vote Jamie Foxx.

hez said...

Jamie Foxx sounds right to me.

Off to groom my brows for tonight!

Joey Tribiani.

WOW! Exciting stuff. Brows? What's next? What A-lister got a manicure? C'MON EL!! Give us something JUICY!! And a few reveals while you're at it! :)

Anonymous said...

You can count out PSH since he is blonde (in the movie ans real life) and the item says that the eyebrows were colored with magic marker.

This is absolutely hilarious. It's so good it's almost as funny as the Whole Foods actor who bitched at the hapless female shopper who tried to push in front of him.

No idea who this is but it's priceless.

Quit bitching 1:53! There's always time for a little fun among the dark corridors of Hollyweird. :D

Anonymous said...

Jamie Foxx is a good guess. Just for fun, I'm going to guess Billy Bob Thornton.

Anonymous said...

BBD is an excellent guess imo.

Anonymous said...

oooops, BBT I meant.

Why is this a blind item?

Melissa said...

LMAO@ 1:53 (the first one), I thought of that as soon as I started reading it :-).
I could see it being Adrien or Jamie Foxx. When we find out for sure though, if we do, I am going to watch that movie for sure

Anonymous said...

Wasn't bitchin'... just making a joke

Anonymous said...

Hey anon 200..was it ever revealed who that Whole foods actor was?

Anonymous said...

He should have asked some help from Joaquim de Almeida (Ramon Salazar in '24', 3 year). That guy doesn't have any eyebrows at all, it's always makeup e confessed to that on tv.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman

Pinky said...

For me this is one of the best BIs yet. I'm totally googling eyebrows!

Anonymous said...

I dunno why this was a blind item either. I want juicy scoop. Where do I need to go to find some? EL we're waiting.... :0

Benicio...in Traffic i totally noticed it!!!!

3:09 I think so too. Ben del toro

Jamie Foxx you can't see his eyes nor his eyebrows cause he wearing dark glasses in RAY Sean P has very distinctive eyebrows .

Ok, I'm going with Clooney in Syriana with the following exhibits that show expanding and collapsing eyebrows:

GGA

Pinky said...

I thought it was at Rock and Roll Ralphs not Whole Foods.

mngddess said...

On second thought, it sounds like somebody from a while ago. I don't think it's Clooney - GGA. It doesn't sound like something he'd do. And he'd totally cop to it and think it was funny.

Someone said Benicio Del Toro and I bet that's correct.

Not that anyone cares what I think...

My definition of A, B, or C Listers (movies):

A List: Their names appear *above* the title in a movie poster.

B List: Their names appear *below* the title in a movie poster.

C List: They appear in the movie.

My definition of above, but TV (slightly overlapping, especially with all those ensemble casts):

A List: If the cast is not listed alphabetically, their names come first. If cast names are in alpha order, in TV promos, they are the ones the TV announcer guy says stuff like "Kiefer Sutherland in 24". That, or the promos usually feature their scenes prominently.

B List: Appear after the "Also Starring" or "With" in the cast list before the program starts.

C List: May also appear in the "Also Starring"/"With", or is only mentioned in the end credits.

Finally, there are the *Celebrity* A, B, or C Listers who may not necessarily be in movies/TV. They may not act well (or act at all), or have ever received an award. They can be socialites (Paris Hilton), Miss America winners/losers (Tara Connor), sports figures (Michael Jordan), singers (Michael Jackson), politicians (Barack Obama), etc.

This is more a personal thing than the criteria for the TV/Movie Listers.

For me:

A List: Someone even I recognize.

B List: I recognize the face, but may not necessarily know their name. Or vice-versa: I recognize the name, but the face doesn't come to mind.

C List: Who?

Benicio del Toro?

Fact: James Brown was born without any eyebrows. When he was a teenager, he had two tattoos made at the right place.

Joaquin Phoenix?

lelli said...

TB,
with all due respect, roberto benigni won an oscar for a foreign film..and although you may not consider him a star in the US, he's still working in Europe (mainly italy)and is most def A list here...
i also think the fact that you know who he is, or remember him is quite significat - he obviously made an impression across the pond ;-)

Anonymous said...

YAWWN!! I didn't remember Roberto until I googled past oscar winners. Thanks anyway Lelli. BTW we all know who Kathy Griffin is...is she A List. I dunno how this A-List crud got spun out of control, but I really don't care. Everybody has their own Alist, its subjective. Appreciate the education of the "AList" for all of you who went out of ur way. :)

i like bencio... he has those odd bushy eybrows (or HAD).

total brain fart.... what's the name of the jilted fiancee in "titanic"? i always hated his eyebrows.

and strangely enough, last night a saw a commercial (several times) that claimes "eye-brows are back!".
good for me, but mother also shaved hers when she was young, and they never grew back. isn't it shame, ladies, that certain other parts keep growing back, no matter what we do??
*sigh*
