Today's Blind Items

#1 This aging, but not old, former Academy Award nominated actor and serious award winner who has been known to do theatre left his wife to be with his girlfriend. No big deal, but it is when he broke up with the girlfriend to be with her daughter. He now lives with the daughter of the girlfriend and has done so on the sly for sometime. It does make sense in a way.

#2 This current Academy Award nominated actress/supporting actress is cheating on her significant other. If she wins will she thank them both? Not Ruby Dee.

again cheating actors... oooooh

mialou said...

#2 is Tilda Swinton. She is quoted somewhere as saying that she loves her partner, with whom she has two children, and her boyfriend. I think they all live together or pretty close by one another.

DNfromMN said...

#2 - Could it be the Great Cate?

Sylvia said...

#1 Anthony Hopkins. I believe he left his wife for a younger woman. Don't know if he left the lover for her daughter.

#2 Had to look up names: Cate Blanchett, Saoirse Ronan, Amy Ryan, Tilda Swinton, Julie Christie, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page and Laura Linney. These are the ones nominated for this years Oscar.

From Dec. 31 IMDB: Swinton Leading a 'Double Life'


British actress Tilda Swinton has confessed to leading an extraordinary double life following a spate of Internet rumors about an alleged affair. The 47-year-old admits to enjoying a romantic liaison with a "delightful painter" while still living with her long-term partner and their two children. Swinton, who is nominated for a Golden Globe award for her role in Michael Clayton alongside George Clooney, spends much of her time away from the family home in Scotland with a mystery partner. And despite having a new man in her life Swinton insists that she is still in a relationship with John Byrne, who is the father of her 10-year-old twins. She tells the Los Angeles Times: "We are the best of pals and adore being parents and are devoted to that project. We ostensibly live in the same house but I travel the world with another delightful painter. The arrangement is just so sane." Meanwhile, writer/director Byrne, who began his relationship with Swinton in 1990, tells Britain's The Mail On Sunday, "We're amicably living together in the same house, under the same roof. It's extraordinary. We love each other too, in an extraordinary way."

Could be Ralph Fiennes who divorced his wife, then started going out with the much older Francesca Annis, who has a daughter named Charlotte Wiseman, who happened to be the assistant costumer for The Constant Gardner.

notvotingforsuckno said...

I am sorry, but she refers to her kids as "that project" and "travels the world with her lover" and comes back to play mommy when she feels like it? What a selfish bitch.

Twisted Sister said...

Charlotte Wiseman is 29, by the way.

Twisted Sister said...

OH...and look:

jax said...

wow what a surprise..you'd never know by looking at Tilda that she could be that cold towards her projects. she seems the picture of perfect domesticity.

snort.

Since Ossie Davis is dead, I would think not.

Mialou - greeat find on Tilda Swinton!

mialou said...

Thanks twisted! It's my first post and I never get these right, but did know that I had already seen this one.

Kaiden said...

i saw tilda swinton at the Avalon hotel in Beverly hills over the summer and she was with her boytoy having drinks. they were staying at the hotel together.

notvotingforsuckno said...

ok, I'll calm down, you gotta point there. I shouldn't be surprised after 'thumbsucker'.

tracee said...

uh-uh Ent. I ain't falling for this again.

Well...you did say nominated. How hard could that be to dig up? Putting on my detective hat.

Elle said...

I'm with Twisted Sister, I immediately thought of Ralph Finnes.

Who, by the way, could Finnes me anyday. I still love love love him...even after he did a stupid movie w/JLo.

Twisted Sister said...

Mialou - great first post then! It sounds like this is an agreement both are open to. Her hubby is probably seeing someone else, too.

Tracee, which blind are you talking about? I think they're both solved, no?

captivagrl said...

TWIS - ya beat me to it!!!!

Twisted Sister said...

Elle, even after he did a stupid stewardess? lol....

Elle said...

Oops, make that Fiennes!

As in, he can Fiennes me any day.

;-)

Elle said...

Twisted Sister: Sure thing! I'll forgive that!

Hell, I'd take him dressed as Voldemort or a crazy Nazi even.

Whew!

Twisted Sister said...

As a Nazi? With a gun? That could be hot...

Cap, so R.F. is right? YAY! I got one in a row right!!!

YIPPEE SKIPPY!!!!

GammaGirl said...

1. I could easily see Ralph Fiennes doing this. I still find him sexy for some reason.

2. I had no idea Tilda Swinton had such an alternative approach to marriage. I think it's kind of cool that she found a way to make it work with her marriage.

captivagrl said...

isn't fiennes the actor who needs sex (bj) just prior to going on stage?

tracee said...

[rubbing eyes] Sista...they ARE?!!

Whoohoo! No more 138 commenters saying the same thing? This is a day in CDAn history!

tracee said...

Gammagirl - Ralph is a hot slice of meat. He makes my body water.

princess pea said...

Hey Twisty - that's a great guess. For some reason, I was thinking Jeremy Irons - not sure why, but he always struck me as a bit pervy.

And I'm with mialou for #2, although I initially thought Cate (oh no!) because the blind says "current academy award nominated actress/supporting actress," and Cate is nominated in both categories this year.

Twisted Sister said...

Tracee...lmao..... No, we may see 138 posts saying the same thing by the end of the day. It's happened!

Cap, that sounds familiar. How would we know this, though? Did he tell the world in an interview or did the stewardess spill the beans because he told her?

You hear about all these guys cheating all the time and suddenly Tilda's world sounds sane. At least neither of them are sitting at home feeling left out.

Twisted Sister said...

Thanks, Princess Pea. I think they're all pervy.

captivagrl said...

twis - it was a BI somewhere and the crew would see it....little creepy.

Twisted Sister said...

Eeeewwwww.... What a pig! I'll try to forget that next time I'm watching one of his movies.

nycer said...

Mialou is right for #2, the Daily Mail had the article over a month ago. But #1 Ralph Fiennes? Annis dumped him, he had a steady Irish gal in the interim and I remember reports of him moving back in w/ Annis late 2007. Sounds more like an American guilty guy for some reason.

Sylvia said...

Always thought Tilda was kind of weird ever since she came out in Orlando.

lisha23 said...

I can't help but wonder if Tilda Swinton isn't TOO obvious. If it's essentially already "solved" (I mean, it's on Wikipedia) and it doesn't sound like it's cheating, isn't it likely to be someone else in this BI?

Customer said...

Whomever this cheating actor #1 is, what a total DOG!!! He deserves a heartbreak in his future...

Brenda22 said...

Lisha
I had the same thought. It seems like Tilda is just living with the father of her children (projects) but they're not really together. Is that really "cheating"? I think it may be someone else.

sarah said...

No, it's Tilda. The "will she thank them both" suggests she's fairly open about it-which she is. Cate is also pregnant-not screwing around.

captivagrl said...

EVERYONE - i couldn't find the one i was looking for, but here's a couple FIENNES blind items......go to: agcwebpages.com/BLINDITEMS/MAINPAGE then july/ aug 2006 #13 also, march/april 2007 #59 if you've never been to this site you're gonna have fun.

Visman said...

is it cheating if they are both aware and cool with it? Other than that word, it does sound like its Tilda.

tracee said...

Ur right Sista I forgot that people just type to type...like me.

39 down 99 to go!

scrapshoppe said...

how about Bill Murray for #1?

When did the cool little widget thingy go up with all the pics on the side? Very cool. I never noticed it before.

kellysirkus said...

am I the only person who feels a little nauseated at the thought of hooking up with Tilda?

Twisted Sister said...

Cap, those blinds (and I found three - there are two in one of those months) are disgusting. What a disappointment. All the actors I love are dogs.

Tracee, keep posting, we're not done yet...and of course, I'm helping...lol.

Onecrazypeanut, what are you talking about? What widgets in the whatsit?

captivagrl said...

i think peanut is referring to the little pretzel thing next to our names.

Petra said...

Wasn't some actress just quoted as saying she was blown away at a recent event by the fact Ruby Dee knew her name? Anybody remember who that was?

Petra said...

Twisted Sister said...

Ohhh....I think the pretzel is a B for blogger. Or bitches.

Petra, that sounds so familiar. Who was that? It wasn't WD, was it?

princess pea said...

petra - that was Ent's spy who reported back with scoop from the SAG Awards.

Hope that helps.

J-Mo said...

Thanks for the info mialou! I love Tilda's looks, not mainstream but very striking.

arecibo said...

sarah, since when did being pregnant make it impossible for you to get some on the side (kate)? it does seem like the answer is Tilda, although describing it as "cheating" is taking a narrow view, if not completely inaccurate, since all parties seem to be well-informed of the situation (even the children, apparently).

Sarah said...

i don't know if it is his bio daughter but when i read one i automatically thought of tim robbins...his girlfriend would be susan s. they never married.

anyhoo, i dismissed it but was suprised to see her pic in the random photos.

if it is his bio daughter then forget it.

westward ho said...

*hoping i'm not double-posting, as this is only my second appearance here, and i'd hate to start with a faux pas*

why am i thinking kevin klein for the first item? is it because phoebe cates was so much younger seeming than he was when they were first married, and so a ... re-adjustment to yet an even younger woman makes a certain kind of ... well, sense, in a way?

Dschingis said...

even if a lot of people here agree with Tilda Swinton, i don´t think its the guess. If they openly live this constelation, if its stated by both of them, then this is their arrangement/agreement.

No way this is a blind. It not shocking news, it just surfaced now since Tilda is nominated. Because, as some already said, she is not the mainstream beauty so she is not so monitored by media.

Dschingis said...

Its Marion Cotillard. The french women are far more libertine than usually known. Plus she´s coming out of an actor family.

Paris is France´s Hollywood. ;-)

Impertinent Vixen said...

#1 cannot be Tim Robbins. He didn't leave a wife to be with Susan Sarandon, and I doubt Susan and Eva would be posing so happily together if Eva were with Tim now. My guess is Ralph Fiennes.

Feebes said...

I'm just tossin out Kurt Russell/Kate Hudson. Yeah, I've been drinkin.

schneefloeckli said...

#1 Jeremy Irons? The whole "it makes sense" made me think of him because of "Lolita". He's married since 1978 and has won some Awards. He also won an Oscar though and not just a nomination.
