Today's Blind Items

#1 This Academy Award nominee for Best Supporting Actress is homeless. Sort of. She bought a house about six months ago and used up all her savings on the down payment. On her very first night there she woke up when she heard loud banging from all throughout the house. Needless to say she was freaked out and went to a friend's house for the rest of the night. Since that night, she hasn't been back, has been unable to sell the house and doesn't have enough money for a hotel room each night of the kind to which she's accustomed. Therefore she's been crashing at different people's homes and taking any job she can find so she can stay in a hotel and have them pay for it.

#2 This B list television/film actress with A list name recognition recently posed nude for a men's magazine. She told her friends and family in advance so they wouldn't be shocked when they heard from someone else. It was something unexpected and it took all her courage to do the shoot and to tell her family. Well, it turns out the shoot turned out so bad that the magazine isn't going to use it all. Even with the wonders of photoshopping her face just didn't seem in sync with her body. The magazine did consider adding her face to a different body, but then would have had to put back in a very famous mark the actress has on her body. It was too much effort, so they gave up. The actress is crushed because everyone knows she posed naked and now she is telling them that she changed her mind and decided not to go through with it rather than the truth.

oh im all alone here..hello? (echo)

1- Amy Adams?
2- Biel? She has busted face but banging body.

mocha said...

2. "just didn't seem insync with her body" lol is that a reference to her beard, mr justin timberpuke?

her face is busted, but jessica doesn't have any new movies coming out does she and she's already doing the film naked.

donna said...

my first thought for 2 was jen a ...dont know why .. but something about the way she looked on vaca with the arequettes ...


#1 .. no clue yet ..

jax said...

who's got a notorious mark on their body..all i can think is Cindy Crawford with her mole but that doesnt fit at all.

mocha said...

also notorious mark on her body? enty is that a reference to jessica biel's penis?

lainiekazan said...

On #2 -- dunno.

#1 --
And she didn't call 911 because.....????

First -- did she call a plumber?
And wtf kind of actor is so spineless she doesn't offer to dog sit someone's gi-normous mastiff or borrow a bunch of security cameras from someone in the business? Or have a couple of giant stuntmen/actor friends come in for an all-night Texas Hold-'em game?

There's got to be more to this story. This would be a good time to get out those old Wayans Brothers "In Living Color" DVDs and look for the sketch about the black couple that moves into a haunted house and chases the ghosts *out* -- it was an extension of a monologue Keenan Wayans had written for Eddie Murphy (in "Raw", I think.)

donna said...

i am thinking the mark is a tatoo of some sort .. somebody's name .. seeing as it is "famous" ...

mocha said...

also "it took all of her courage to do the photoshoot and tell her family"

meaning it isn't biel because she's posed nude before, it might be somebody with a rather clean reputation that has never done anything really outrageous.

Mooshki said...

#1 Duh, Abigail Breslin.

jax said...

2- Jessica Simpson? Jesus i dont know..today is my friday..ive just searched famous birthmarks and all i got was Liz Taylor..goddamn Liz don't do it!!!

Kim said...

regarding the mark, can it be a tattoo?
I still got nothin'.....

jax said...

2- Madonna or Janet Jackson..both have prominenet moles on their faces..shit that doesnt work either..keep goin.

Bryn said...

It has to be someone in which posing nude is out of character, and who has a very famous "mark" somewhere on her body.

My first thought was Eve, with her claw tats, but I don't think it's out of character for her to pose nude.

jax said...

Ok if its a tatoo i give up..that's half of LA and then some.

Pam Anderson has those marks but would she have to explain posing naked to her family???lol.

califblondy said...

Elizabeth Taylor? Now that is hilarious.

I thought of Cindy Crawford's famous mole too, but that can't be it.

You know those pix had to have been sorry if they couldn't even use 'em.

MelCon said...

#2. The face looked good, it's the body that was bad. So Biel is out.

What about Rachel McAdams?

Mooshki said...

Katie Holmes has a birthmark on her butt, but there's no way she'd be allowed to pose nude. Although, there were just rumors about her and Tom doing a nude photo shoot?

Bryn said...

I've got it. Kelly Osbourne. She is an actress having been a regular on Life as We Know It from 2003-2004. Was supposedly rejected by Playboy. Has the cross tats on her feet - bizarre body shape. It's her.

K said...

#1 Jennifer Hudson

nikki said...

Jennifer Hudson owns a house in Chicago

d said...

I love the Kelley Osborne guess

Lucy said...

LOL, Abigail Breslin!!

Tracee said...

Jennifer Hudson would be good, but she won that gold statue.

#2-I can't think of many women in ho-town that hasn't posed nude. -shrug-

Pinky said...

I know we always have this argument, but Kelly Osbourne not relatively close to being B list.

Pinky said...

How about Amber Tamblyn for #2? I always remember a tattoo on her ankle, just looked it up and it says it's a fairy.

DNfromMN said...

the mark is going to be on the body, not the face so stop talking about facial features. the face was going to stay, the problem was the body.

GammaGirl said...

1. I'm drawing a blank on actresses that live in hotels...

2. For some Eve popped into my head too...its the claws. I don't see an audience for Kelly Osbourne naked. Rachel McAdams seems too classy to pose nude.

Stephanie said...

#1 Virginia Madsen-almost lost her home before she was in "Sideways"

#2 Jennifer Aniston or Courteney Cox? Can't think of any marks they are famous for, though.

Jim said...

#1 - Chloe S.?

Cali Girl said...

#1 is going to be someone who didn't win and doesn't have much money, so career is likely starting out or starting to pick up - hasn't commanded that many starring roles yet. She's also likely single. I'm guessing recent nominee - 2000 and forward. How about Amy Adams?

Huggy Jesus said...

cindy was in the magazine already. :D

tigerbeat said...

#2 Melanie Griffith? She's always showing off that awful tattoo of Antonio's name on her arm

d said...

for #2: Rachel McAdams?

She was scheduled to be in a nude photo shoot for Vanity Fair, but supposedly changed her mind.

She has a tattoo on her lower back, and she was in the Wedding Crashers where hopefully, this quote was about her (I forget): "Tattoo on the lower back? Might as well be a bullseye."

Beader said...

Good guesses... what about Penelope Cruz? She has a [somewhat] famous tattoo of a number...

Beader said...

Really, though, I like someone older or fatter for this... someone who has tried really hard on her face but let her body go a bit.

Angela said...

#1 I also thought of Amy Adams but, before her big break, she was mostly in indie pictures, and wasn't spending her time in luxury hotels. However, she has four projects completed or scheduled on imdb and the buying of the house would have come a little after getting paid for "Talladega Nights".
It could also be Jennifer Hudson, Laura Linney or Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda)

#2 Can you technically be a nude celebrity in a US men's magazine without the magazine being Playboy? It can't be Rachel McAdams (her carrier doesn't need a boost, she has done little television and she was topless in an early movie, nothing to be ashamed of, little to get excitated with). Jennifer Aniston is technically A-list, as she was more than five years in an ensemble show. Else, who could be an actress with an attractive face but with a body so plain she would lose her hot reputation or disappoint many? Jennifer Love Hewitt? Eliza Dushku? Neve Campbell? Sarah Jessica Parker? Lili Taylor? ChloƩ Sevigny? Alexis Arquette?

Alexandra said...

(1) This is a tricky one. Here is a list of all the recent nominees. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academy_Award_for_Best_Supporting_Actress
It would have to be someone single and probably childless - it sort of lends itself to someone who doesn't have anyone else around at night. The only single AND childless actress on the list in recent times is Rinko Kikuchi. She is just breaking into the whole LA Acting scene, and so it makes sense that she would just have bought a house. PLUS, she has no children and I haven't found any website talking about her live-in boyfriend.

(2) I think it is Charlize Theron. she is B-List, but has A-list name recognition. Plus, she is Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive, and she has a tattoo on her left ankle. Google Charlize Theron Tattoo and you'll see. There is a lot of people who have said that Charlize is pretty plain and has a bad physique. In addition, she doesn't strike me as the shy type (especially being a former model), but the May 1999 issue of Playboy published nude photos of Theron, taken during the early years of her modeling career. Claiming they had been "for private use", Theron ended up suing photographer Guido Argentini. It makes sense that sexy nude photographs would be a big deal to her - having been "violated" by them in the past.

Anyway, that's my two cents.

Christine said...

I think this is a follow up to a previous BI and clues where Ent hinted that Jennifer Aniston was supposed to pose for Playboy to boost her career, and then didn't.

Town Bike said...

Just because someone was a nominee, doesn't mean they didn't win. A winner is also a nominee.

Perhaps saying 'winner' would have been too obvious.

I think it's JHud.

HautieTx said...

BI #2...

It is not Jennifer Aniston. The girl has done numerous, practically naked, layouts. Or should I say... naked with her body creatively posed to hide the hoo-ha.

Now if Courteney Cox's name got tossed out... that would seem more plausible.

I agree... stop with the guesses about moles on faces. The item states clearly the girl in question has a ugly body. Which is common when you are super skinny. But I suspect the girl in question probably has had a boob job... since the magazine most likely was not wanting to photograph a girl with no boobs.

So who is super skinny... got big knockers with a decent face? Who must have one helluva a tattoo. Or one big hairy mole...hahaha!!

TomTyler said...

#2 sounds more like a Melanie Griffith, who has the famous Antonio tattoo. Her face is so altered that it wouldn't match anyone's body.

Ana said...

megan fox?

would she be considered a list? well, after eva mendes was said to be a-list, i can never tell anymore.....

Ana said...

oh, i forgot to say, clearly, that was a guess for number 2. i'm not sure she's got a-list recognition, but maybe, since she just went on that promotion binge the transformers put out...furthermore, i don't think anymore would be really shocked that she posed nude...anyway...i'm rambling.

Larla said...

here's a list of celebrities with tattoos:

http://www.vanishingtattoo.com/celebrity_tattoos_a.htm

anyone care to elminate those that dont fit the other clues?

Dschingis said...

Some actresses with scars
Padma Lakshmi arm
Zeta Jones tracheotomy
Sharon Stone neck

Not on the body but as list scars:
Sandra Bullock above the right eye
Diane Lane side of the right eye.

Not to speak about all the bad boob or other jobs like Tara Reid and others.


There is another point of view to consider: a simple scar or a tattoo is really easy to photoshop. Is dayly routine. Probably the agencies already have most of them done before. So it means that in this case it has to be pretty complicated. Either a complex scar or a bunch of (complex) tattoos wich have to be all alterated to fit the picture´s posture. And this again for all of them. Wich for a big magazine could be worthy to do if the "star" is a real hit. So it´s probably not that big deal.

schneefloeckli said...

#1 no idea

#2 Could be Parminder Nagra. One of her legs is badly scarred [accident in her childhood I think] and everyone got to see it in "Bend It Like Beckham" where she wore short pants all the time and it was even included in the storyline after she got cast. Since her parents are from India, I guess she'd have a hard time explaining nude pics to them. But I'm maybe I'm totally wrong there. She's on ER, so she fits the whole B-list TV + movies as well. PLUS: Ent has posted a pic of her very recently.

Can't be Charlize Theron since she's clearly A-list.

tigereye said...

Ali Larter is suppose to be in playboy soon, but I haven't actually seen it yet.
IMO, she'd be b-list w/ Alist name recognition, esp w/ Heroes out now, her whipped cream bikini in Varsity Blues, i know lots of guys that think she's oh so hot-which yes, she is pretty. I dont have a clue about any body marks that would have to be 'replaced' and her body seems pretty hot on its own, but maybe when it came down to completely naked, something just didnt 'fit' right... ?

TomTyler said...

I still think people are guessing obscure people (Ali Larter is not exactly a household name). I'm thinking Sharon Stone or Teri Hatcher, someone who is well over 40, washed up as a sex symbol but still thinks she has "got it going on."

tania said...

Lainie,
my first thought about no.1 was 'who ya gonna call?' ;-)

Clearly that was hers too, or she'd have done some of the sensible stuff you mention! She sounds like a neurotic twit who needs some sense slapped into her.
So why can't she sell the place, I wonder - does she tell everyone it's haunted? Silly cow...

lainiekazan said...

Wouldn't the house being haunted *raise* the asking price? In Hollywood, anyway? I mean, it would certainly guarantee some drama at the next party!

Sharon said...

I was thinking about this. A photographer can hide many things through simple posing. So this "mark" has to be someplace where a camera angle cannot obscure it without affecting the money shot. So for a nude shoot, it would either be the butt, the boobs or the bikini area.

I'd even rule out the butt because with such a high profile woman they could easily stick to a frontal shoot and likely still end up with usable material for publication.

I agree with whoever said it would have to be a complex mark, something you couldnt insinuate being covered by a hand or an arm if you were using a body double and something difficult to replicate.

The body being out of sync with the face may not only be someone who has excess body mass but maybe someone who is grossly underweight, skeletal. Not sure how easy it is to add weight to photos. Or aging, the face being surgically altered but the body not keeping up.

Whatever was wrong had to be "overall" wrong for them not to be able to conceal through posture, shadow or angle.

I'm inclined to think it is a aging vs surgery thing for that "out of sync"-ness than a weight issue.

All that being said, I can't seem to come up with someone who has not posed nude before, would have issues with their family being aware, is surgically altered facially (and is therefore someone a bit older) and is the proud owner of a well known ink, birthmark or scar in a rather specific area.

Helena said...

#2 -- My guess would be Drew Barrymore. The "incongruous" markings that can't be corrected could be the horrible anchor-looking scars on her breasts from a breast reduction surgery she had in the early '90s.

Couple those scars with the copious amounts of tats she has *everywhere* and it would be a photoshop job not worth doing...

tania said...

Lainie,

true! And it would make a change from the type of banging which usually (allegedly) happens at Hollywood parties...

lisa said...

Vivica A Fox for #2? She's a mess, and has a tattoo on her arm.
