Today's Blind Items

I figure since I am always rightfully bashing Scientology, I thought I would share something about the "religion" of another actor. This late 20 something A-/B+ film actor has a little secret that belies his primarily clean cut image. He is a devout follower of Anton LaVey. He has a first edition Satanic Bible which was personally signed by LaVey. Our actor also has the number 9 tattooed on himself to signify the nine rituals of the Satanic Church. He even went so far as to purchase some land where he and other followers use to practice many of these rituals.

I have no idea...but it sounds juicy!I hope there is a reveal for this one.

unicorn jones said...

ryan reynolds? I don't really know if this is right, but it's what came up when I googled actor tattoo nine


-uj

grumps said...

What about Orlando Bloom? He has the number 9 tattoed on his arm and he fits the age and A/B actor status. Could primary clean cut image mean Disney movies (i.e. Pirates)?

Praetorian said...

Orlando Bloom. He painted his house black (creepy!), and got a 9 tattoo while filming the lord of the rings trilogy, if I'm not mistaken.

liza said...

but isn't orlando buddhist?

dreadpiratecuervo said...

I read up on Satanists once & it wasn't about human sacrifice & actual devil worship. It was more about doing whatever it takes to satisfy the self. As long as your desires are satisfied, you don't care what effect it as on other people. Wholly & ruthlessly selfish.

Twisted Sister said...

Viggo has a 9 and so does Orlando Bloom, but both of them are too old.

Big Sur Expedition 2008! said...

Wasn't that a "Dirt" plot a couple of weeks ago??

Twisted Sister said...

Late 20's people!

AphraelDanae said...

Orlando and many of the other main characters in LOTR got the '9' tattoo in reference of the 'Fellowship'...

/geek :D

Praetorian said...

If Orlando is too old, what about Elijah Wood? He's 27 and he too has the 9 tattoo.

Jewels said...

I worked with a girl who studies satanism. And like deadpiratecuervo said, it was all about self/instant/at any cost gratification. Oh and the girl? The eyes were empty. Just empty, devoid of anything. Gave me the heeby-jeebies...

jax said...

all the geek squad on LOTR got it.

Ayesha said...

Well, I find satanism MUCH less scary than the Scientos. Actually, I find Wicca and satanism much less scary than Catholicism, so... I can't get all lathered up about this. The occult believers don't go around trying to recruit people and force them to do stupid shit. They mind their own beeswax and don't hurt anyone.

jenner said...

haha ayesha I was about to say the same thing - is it weird that this doesn't creep me out but the $cientologi$ts do? LOL

Mooshki said...

Satanism is just an excuse for pretentious kinky sex.

kellysirkus said...

I think I'd rather hang with a Satanist than a Sci.

jax said...

i'd rather hang with fuckin Satan than Tom Cruise.

same diff.

took the words right outta my mouth...no shit...

califblondy said...

We need an excuse for that? Damnit, I didn't get the memo.

Harriet Hellfire said...

"but isn't orlando buddhist"

You know, LaVeyan Satanism and Buddhism actually have a lot in common...*L*

"Satanism is just an excuse for pretentious kinky sex."

Hahaha! I think you hit it right on the head. Or however that saying goes. *L*

kris_r said...

"Satanism is just an excuse for pretentious kinky sex."

....hmmmm...doesn't sound all bad..

Sexecution said...

Just an FYI, black is not an unusual color for homes in LA. You see it done where people want their homes to blend into landscape, esp in canyons. I believe OB is a buddist.

emstee22 said...

i feel like it isn't someone from lord of the rings because they all got them because of the movie. i could be wrong though, it just seems like who ever got it wouldn't get it with a bunch of their co-workers, and all match.

Twisted Sister said...

I don't think it's anyone from LoTR either, Emstee.

Okay, now that we've put a negative spin on Catholicism, Buddhism and kinky sex, who else can we offend?

Laura said...

unicorn- ryan reynolds starred in a movie called "The Nines". that is why he came up.


I will go for left field and say Ryan Gosling

Alisonthefirst said...

Wait - wasn't Anton LaVey based in SF? So what actor is purchased land in SF?

Trix said...

Satanism.*yawn* Such a dabbler's religion.

Unless, of course, you're like most true Satanists. I didnt know the meaning of selfish until I met a Satanist.

captivagrl said...

laura - gosling is a great guess.

meat said...

organized religion = fanatics

gossipmonger said...

ashton kutcher!
i wouldnt necessarily call his ACTING a-/b+, but he's definitely done films & he is late 20s....AND he's in the top spot in the random photos!!
lol, yes, i'm kidding.....

gossipmonger said...

but there is something to say about him "feeling the wrath"....

RagDoll said...

gossipmonger---

I love it!!!!

JoAnn said...

For some reason my first thought of Josh Hartnett.

He's almost 30.....

Bizarre though.....

Sara said...

My first thought was Ryan Gosling, too. It seems like we'd have heard rumor that the guy was kind of a pr*ck, since he'd be so selfish and all.

KDF28 said...

What about Josh Hartnett?

some said...

if it was ryan reynolds or josh harntnett wouldn't ent have mentioned something about famous girlfriends?

keeko said...

Hi...longtime 'lurker', first time poster...

Just an aside (I don't have a guess for this BI), as I was searching through to find info on this BI, I found that Jayne Mansfield was a Satanist:

http://www.debased.com/content/celebrities/m/jayne-mansfield.html

Also, if you look at the homepage of The First Church of Satanism, http://www.churchofsatan.org/main.html , it lists who they are & #3 is:
3. Our assembly consists of men and women representing the upper echelons of society: professors, politicians, lawyers, doctors, entertainers, etc

Well, that's all...happy, uh, satan-hunting?

kellysirkus said...

I think I know a lot of people that "act" like Satanists. I wonder if they know what their true faith calling is.

DBF said...

Jayne Mansfield most likely joined for the publicity. Anton LaVey was the hip celebrity friend at a time. Sammy Davis may have been a follower too but he was still publicly Jewish.

keeko said...

dbf...yeah, there is speculation about that- here is another article I found that seems to be somewhat well researched about this, also saying it may have been publicity, but she may have also claimed it that to save her image:

http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.satanic-kindred.org/images/anton.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.satanic-kindred.org/tribute.htm&h=122&w=125&sz=17&tbnid=NTqz_KdwE1gJ:&tbnh=122&tbnw=125&prev=/images%3Fq%3Danton%2Blevay&hl=en&sa=X&oi=image_result&resnum=1&ct=image&cd=2

It also makes reference to SD Jr.

ScoobySnacks said...

I do not care to keep company with sci-fi-tology freaks or satanic worshipers, but don't surround myself with holy rollers either, they put a damper on my drinking endless margaritas with top shelf tequila!

selenakyle said...

I am feeling Joann's guess about Josh Hartnett, too. Maybe crazy, but he and Rhianna's were linked so much for a while there and her new tat looks...I don't know..."astral" to me? (no, not just b/c they're stars...!) Dunno, can't describe it.

duncanpowers said...

I have no idea, but this is a way more juicy piece of gossip than most! It's something original and different.

Kristine said...

I like the guess of Ryan Gosling too.

Sara said...

Okay, did some looking up of Ryan Gosling stuff... He was raised Mormon and is still close to his mom and sister (brought them to the awards show recently). I also found an article where he is asked about his tattoos and he doesn't mention one of the number 9 (this is around the time of promotional stuff for Lars and the Real Girl.

So now I don't think it's Ryan. I think the dude just has creepy facial hair.

Next!

nursekelly said...

ryan gosling, rachel adams dumped him for it

Grace said...

Obviously if some of the actors from Lord of the Rings got the number 9 tatooed on their bodies, it has to be one of them...and if it is, it makes it harder to narrow it down to just one person, hence a pretty good blind!

Amy said...

Laura said...

I like Adam Brody and Dave Annabelle, but they are both mostly TV, not film


Joseph Gordan Levitt isnt a bad guess either


IA this is not a LOTR thing

sarah said...

I'd much rather have a bunch of satanist neighbors into weird music, strange rituals and bizarro beliefs than live next to really evil people. Strangely, the satanists don't seem to align themselves with those behaviors and leaders (Hitler, child abuse, racism etc.) that I would consider truly evil, but rather seem like just another hokey new age religious group who are about as threatening as a group of Avon saleswomen.

saphronia said...

You people are re-got-damn-diculous. It would be more likely that said person followed Luciferian tenants which are of the "intelligence/knowledge is god" line of thought. Satanists follow something similar, although they are of the "take advantage of the weak/stupid" mindset. There is a subtle difference.

captivagrl said...

remember A-/B+ FILM actor, that rules almost all late 20 somethings.... i think laura got it. GOSLING.

trashtalker said...

"Belies" is another good word. Ent has been busting out the fancy vocab lately.

I'm not convinced it's one of the LOTRers. It would mean that one of the nine actors who got "9" tats to commemorate the 9 in the fellowship secretly thought to himself, "But my 9 tattoo is really for the Satanic church." Seems silly.

Found this Gosling quote from last year: “A tattoo should never be meaningful, because at a certain point you’re going to hate it, and it might as well make you laugh.”

Sara said...

How about James Franco? Grew up in Palo Alto, near SF; in the Spiderman movies and has won some awards (A-/B+); Ent never says anything nice about him--only real post is that his favorite words are probably Fuck. Off. Read some interviews where he casts himself as kind of a loner in high school, ...

noel said...

I don't know about this blind item but all I can think of is the Beatles song "number 9". It would explain Heather Mills though...

heeheehee...

classalpha said...

... since there are that many "actors" with a *luciferian* #9 tattoo, it only proves that Holly-weird is full of kloseted KWEERS. "Em"gaging in homosexual "acts" is one of the selfish
"aspects" of *Crowley/LaVey/"Do What Thou Wilt" luciferianism*. BTW... *A.Crowley* WAS "friend" of *L.Ron Hubbard*... *they BOTH* "created" the Co$... so there is little or no difference between either *church*.


Wouldn't surprise me that Ashton is *luciferian* - he "Em"gaged in that FAKE/PR-contrived "pairing" with Brittany Murphy in 2003... then he broke *it* off due to Britt's continued "Em"CESSion with *an'OTHER' *luciferian - that Ayn Rand-worshipping cRapper CRETIN aka "Em"-in-ANU$*.


... oh YA... "Em"terestingly enough... ALL of these possibly *luciferian* "actors" have a Brittany Murphy factor of ONE... neaning they've all "appeared in" *flicks*/TV with Britt...


Orlando Bloom
Jason Biggs
James Franco
Josh Hartnett
Ashton Kutcher

Jaycee said...

I say Hayden Christenson as he is always talking about his "farm" he purchased and since he was in Star Wars would that make him A-/B+?

I am typically a lurker but for some reason he was the first to come to mind.

Rita said...

This site list all the celebrity tattoos:http://www.vanishingtattoo.com/celebrity_tattoos_b.htm

It says Orlando's tattoo is 'an Elvish design meaning "The Nine"'.

Amber said...

Satanism is like a bunch of cute newborn puppies compared to Scientology.

Alpine Summer said...

I did a report on the Satanic Church way back in the day as a freshman in high school. (Ok, I had some problems, but it wasn't like I wanted to join up or anything.) They do, indeed, encourage taking advantage of those they view as lesser than themselves, mentally, physically, socially, etc. I know it says he has a "clean cut image," but should we be looking for someone that plowed their way to the top, stepping on a lot of fingers?

I just don't see Ryan Gosling. He just doesn't strike me as the arrogant prick it takes to be into Satanism that far. Ryan Reynolds, it could be -- I guess we'll hear about it on Alanis' next album (or is it out? I don't follow her like I used to.) I also would rule out the Fellowship, for the reasons Trashtalker listed above.

.sigh. I'm no help.

FreeThinker said...

Since I'm late to the party I just quickly wanted to say about the other post Ent did on the sec check questions for kids in Scientology. The celebrity kids have it just as bad. Take Anne Archers son for example, his name is Tommy Davis, he has personally harassed critics. Here is a video from the BCC Expose on scientology. Watch tommy davis.. he is nuts.. you all should check out the whole special as you will not believe Tommy Davis's behavior.

selenakyle said...

Way spooky point that classalpha made about the Brittany Murphy connection. If her husband doesn't look like the GD devil, I don't know who does.

I pretty much understand the diff btw wicca/paganism/white magic (nice philosophy, actually) and the black arts.

If Ent really means some kind of black magic, then that's not cool at all, IMO, no matter who it is.

Alisonthefirst said...

"classalpha" that's really interesting.

gossipmonger said...

ok, this is not not not an lotr thing. they all got the number 9 IN ELVISH (except gimli who sent his double). a made up language. not the ACTUAL number 9.

also, i wouldnt exactly say josh hartnett has a "clean cut image"....not that he's particulary "dirty-cut" (lol), but i just dont see good boy....... & i definitely dont see ryan reynolds like that either!
& classalpha, yes, very interesting, but annoying to read! :)

Ayesha said...

freethinker: Whoa! Good link!

That Davis kid talks JUST like Tom Cruise. His voice, his speech patters, his inflection, his absolute insistence. I wonder if they all get like that when defending their "faith"...

d said...

Hayden Christensen just *seems* like this kind of guy, but I read that he's going to plant lavender fields on his Toronto ranch. He also doesn't eat pork anymore since he got some pet piglets.

Pretty gentle stuff.

Starburst said...

I dunno if we already crossed this one out, but I really like the James Franco guess. Does he have any tattoos?

CarolMR said...

This is serious stuff. Charles Manson was reportedly a follower of LaVey.

Amy said...

Y'all need to research LaVey's Church of Satanism with what the Bible considers Satanism. Devil Worshiping and Satanism are not the same thing. Not that I agree with LaVey's church or anything, but educate yourselves before commenting. I would rather be a Satanist anyday than a Scientologist.
