Today's Blind Items

This early 20's Italian film and soap opera actress is probably a B list in her own country if not a C. Then why the hell am I even writing about her? Well, she has a certain look and ability that enables her to transform almost seamlessly into almost any leading lady working today. Although it might be good for her if she wanted a career as a stand in, what she uses her talent for is something much more bank account enhancing.

Her ability first became noticed on one of her first projects when she was teamed up with this British/Italian actress who found our actress mesmerizing when she basically turned into Scarlett Johannson right before her eyes. Soon our actress found that producers and directors who had always wanted to sleep with Scarlett were beating down her door and paying her large sums of money to act like Scarlett. Now, our actress when not working has a huge list of very happy directors and producers from Italy, the UK, and the US who gladly await her quarterly e-mail which identifies which character she is portraying for that three month period. Her portrayal often includes erotic scenes from films or movies to make everything even more of a fantasy. For the first three months of 2008, she is portraying Ali Larter. A night with our actress currently costs about $20,000, and if you think that is too high, she has a waiting list.

This is TOO weird! Can't think of any Italian actress in her 20s. And the British-Italian actress? Greta Scacchi?

Visman said...

bleh!

very L A CONFIDENTIAL!

The British-Italian actress - Claire Forlani? Minnie Driver?

mandythegreat said...

Well, the British Italian actress could be Claire Forlani, she's half and half.

Monica Bellucci is Italian and lives in England, I wonder if that would qualify her.

OMG! is it, like, British Brit with her dark weave and red lips? OMG! Like, it totes is, huh?

Robot said...

Could be Silvia de Santis from The Shadow Dancer with Clare Forlani, or Bianca Guaccero from the same. Can't find a DOB for Silvia, though, and Bianca isn't early twenties.

My guess - Benedetta Valanzano (Italian soap star) and Katy Louise Saunders (British/Italian actress). I have no idea who these people are. But intriguing nonetheless.

GammaGirl said...

hmmmm this is kinda kinky!
So I take Ali heard about this and told Ent?

I have no idea who this is.

how old is Asia Argento?

Praetorian said...

Paris, Asia is 32.

Interesting item. Would be a lot more interesting if it was someone we could put a face to or whose work we at least know of so we can put in context. This is just too abstract for me.

I don't know a thing about the Italian acting scene. Would help to know something more about the British/Italian actress or what project they teamed up on.

Any European readers who can throw out some informed guesses?

I'll second the Benedetta Valanzano guess. She's sort of ambiguously pretty and her color has been changing pretty drastically over the last year.

Dave said...

I'm just trying to decide how someone doubles Scarlett and then Ali. There's sorta a big difference there...

I think we have a winner! And I could TOTALLY see her turning that into ScarJo. No problemo.

Jac said...

Yup she gets my vote tooo, just GIS'd her, she could be any now actress with a little change....

GammaGirl said...

Based on looks, I have to agree with the Benedetta guess. Nice find!

MontanaMarriott said...

Her second role was an Italian mini series in 2005 co-starring English/Italian actress Jane Alexander.

Excellent detective work Vilma/Shaggy lol

Amber said...

This is really difficult. I think we need pictures to see who looks like Scarlett/and Ali Larter

Harriet Hellfire said...

Benedetta is a really good guess...I can't come up with anything else....

Majik said...

Twenty grand, eh?

I wonder if there are any rich men willing to pay for someone who kinda looks like Laverne DiFasio....

Twisted Sister said...

LMAO @ Majik!!!!!!

some said...

yeah that Benedetta girl could easily do scarlett. blue contacts, blonde hair and the right clothes and she would look close.

april said...

He he Majik. Funny!

A said...

that's insane. wow! at least she's a creative puta:D

mngddess said...

My first thought after reading this was: "I'm jealous".....

Elena Santarelli- definitely can pull off Ali Larter no prob, but she's more a "tv personality" than an actress. Actually, looking at her pictures I think that $20,000 a gig might be a little on the 'light' side. Probably too obvious if it were her, so it probably isn't.

Ilaria Spada could pull off Ali Larter too...(with a bottle of peroxide)...and she has the list of Italian soaps to boot.

Okay, okay, okay...the one most likely- Martina Stella. Had a bit roll in Ocean's 12, is blonde, 23, and can probably "do" both ScarJo and Ali Larter. Like Bennetta, she too starred in a TV mini starring Jane Alexander.

Though...just looking at Italian TV movies that Jane Alexander did, brings a couple of interesting alternate possibilities, such as this young lady with only two IMDb credits six years apart: Ilaria Negrini, blonde, looks like ScarJo and Ali mutated into one being.



Another possibility for the British/Italian actress: Sarah Felberbaum. She seems versatile enough to be our girl, but strangely she is also English/Italian and was in the same "Figlia di Elisa" miniseries as Jane Alexander. Hmmm...two British/Italian actresses in the same series? Whoa!

If it's Sarah Felberbaum, then it might be Nicoletta Romanoff (four things on IMDb, two TV). "one of her first projects"?

Chiara Stampone: Silk would have been a major roll for her, her previous roll being "Girlfriend #1" six years previous. Also had an International cast.

Maria Elena Vandone, who just won the Italian "Dancing with the Stars" and has only two IMDb credits...I wonder if that fits the "one of her first projects" part.


Though if English/Italian is Katy Louise Saunders, uh...Maria Chiara Augenti? Laura Chiatti?

I'd like to know if I'm anywhere close with any of these...(hint, ent, hint).

Edit: because I tried to put url tags to the google images of all these women and those aren't allowed evidently.

Marnie said...

When is she doing Viggo Mortensen?

Does she take the Discover card?

Harriet Hellfire said...

Ha!

Mooshki said...

Majik & Marnie - LOL!!!
