Blind Items Reveals

May 8, 2008


#1 - This A list film actor. I was thinking about it, but he definitely has opened movies on his own. Action though. That is kind of like women opening a horror film and being called A list. Oh, well, everyone knows him, and when I say know him, you know him. You know, (points eyes)down there. Well seems that our actor is a very generous sort to women on the street who he is attracted to. When he meets someone he likes and likes a great deal, he gives them his card. On the back of the card is a 1-800 number to a credit card concierge with a note that says, "buy something as beautiful and exotic as you... my treat xoxo". There is a pre-set spending limit on the gift.

#2 - What cast of a hit television show that is changing coasts is sitting in front of their computers right now reading this blind item? At least one of you has been a blind item, and one of you is permanently safe.

#1 - Gerard Butler
#2 - Ugly Betty

At least he's not trying to tell them they're "the most elegant creature I've ever seen" so he can get in their pants. Still, it's a little weird.

Julie said...

America is safe, Ent has said that before, right?
and duh, Rebecca Romijn is the BI. lol

i could see America being my friend. she seems like a sweetheart. though I don't watch UB, never have.

d said...

my hubby thought that was the coolest thing ever and Gerard is now officially his favorite actor.

Production Girl said...

so uh...whats JB type?

I do agree it is kind of weird tho.

MontanaMarriott said...

#2 I had right already, but its good to know that there is at least ONE HETERO male in Hollyweird with GB

jax said...

sounds like a good way to get some 'straight' publicity.

hes so hot i don't care if he bats or catches.

selenakyle said...

I thought a recent hint alluded to GB.
YUMMMM, I'd do him right then and there on the sidewalk.

Visman said...

I think it's creepy as hell. Seriously, if it was someone not famous or attractive but just ugly schmuck off the street who had some money and gave you a card with the same instructions you'd probablt throw it away and possibly call the police.

Kara said...

I dunno. It's kind of like a complete stranger buying you a drink in the bar. It's just more expensive.

Lyla said...

You gotta love the guy. Maybe a bit sad and pathetic but if you were the lady in question a different matter - now how come he is single

Pandora said...

No shame here, I'd order my prezzie before calling the cops.

Quintessential Southerner said...

that's true visman, BUT since it's not, i'm taking the card.

there is nothing wrong with a man or woman not being married 'when everyone thinks he should be'.

some entertainers are wise enough to know that, just because i screw you does not mean i need to marry you.

and what's the divorce rate in hwood?

operaghost said...

Woot! So glad to see GB is still safe as one of the only manly men in H-weird.

:)

trashtalker said...

Funny, pandora!

I think it's weird because Gerard is a handsome guy, obviously generous. Handing out cards so that lovely ladies can buy themselves presents just seems like the M.O. of a desperate guy who has low self-esteem.

a little more info on #2
who was a Blind?
who is perm safe?

I find the Butler story mildly creepy
especially after those voicemails the other day

Visman said...

Rebecca was the blind and I think America is permantly safe

RagDoll said...

GERARD!!! America is permanently safe...yay, she's as nice as she seems..uh, I think thats what "permanently safe" means. Or maybe Ent is her lawyer.....

Pandora said...

I know Ent has also said just this past week that Alexis Bledel is also safe from blinds, which made me really happy as a die-hard Gilmore fan. It also made me really happy because many had guessed her/him for a blind when people thought Milo Ventimiglia might have been roughing her up, so that was a relief.

Anyone else that is permanently safe that longer-time readers recall?

trashtalker said...

Is Molly Sims safe? Ent loves her.

Lyla said...

what voicemails kelly Sirkus

bramblewitch said...

Thanks ENT for the fun reveals. You make my workdays so much more fun!

ChasingHeaven said...

I must know the spending limit. Sorry, I just gotta know. I'm that curious.

mazemerizing said...

I think Ent said that Gerard would be an answer to a blind, and I was hoping it wouldn't be the one about the drunk at the table reading (who I'm guessing now is George Clooney), or the blind about some actor being gay (there's so many of those I can't keep 'em straight) so this reveal about him passing out cards, not asking for phone numbers, not screwing them in an alley, not grabbing their asses, just passing out a card is a good blind reveal for me. Love Gerard Butler.

mazemerizing said...

Well, I felt kind of bad for thinking the blind about the drunk was George Clooney because I'd hoped it wasn't him, and Ent just revealed that it wasn't. Sorry George. (Although I'm sure he's the answer for a blind somewhere.)

Ms. said...

I met about 15-20 members of a three of his fan clubs at the Toronto International Film Festival four/five years ago while standing in line for a flick. All were nice women (in their 40's). Weird thing was that when speaking to them individually, they would very discreetly bashed the other fan clubs. They all communicated online and this was the first time they had met in person - at TIFF. And each group thought their site & fan club was the best. It was hilarious. Especially since I didn't really know who he was at the time. They all had photos of themselves with Gerard and lots of stories about how he recognized them at various events and would make a point of going over to speak with them. Personally, I now think he's a douche, but at least he is kind and generous to his fans.

shakey said...

Does he really make THAT much money???

duncanpowers said...

I guess it keeps women from throwing themselves at him, hoping they might get something sparkly. "Look! Shiny!" while he slides off into the sunset. Ingenious.

mngddess said...

Jax and Selena, I'm with you. If I saw him on the street I'd grab his hand and find the nearest dark corner - my GOD is he hot. I think - in a weird way, its kind of sweet.

BTW, lets play a game - what would you get as a gift?

Definetely some diamond studs. Or a nice necklace...

Judi said...

Wondering if the UB cast was here reading these reveals. Had to be. MASSIVE shout-out to them for a great season and looking forward to the next. Please give a headsup to the writers that story lines are getting a bit diluted, and some episodes are not as tight as in the past. Will I stop watching? He!!, no!

too said...

there's no way GB is making that much money.....gotta say I don't believe this one is true. He gives off a really gay vibe and I'm not one of those people who believes everyone in H'wood is gay!

Jerry said...

Of course everyone in Hollywood is gay, you silly Too.

And while I wouldn't think Gerard Butler has any trouble getting laid, this gift card thing basically does most of the work for him. He's already got the visual of the lady and the concierge company probably sends him reports with names, addresses and phone numbers if she takes him up on his offer. If he caps a gift at $100, that's cheaper than an escort {err, so I've heard} and almost as sure a thing.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Not everyone in H'wood is gay. There are some good old fashioned men there who want a tumble with only women, and I think GB is one of them. His methods are little odd, but at least he's not being a groping asshole.

Sis said...

Love it Ugly Betty, love that show!

BromweynMc said...

Eh! Gerry! Do I count as exotic enough for you? I'm a brunette of part Native American, Irish, French Canadian and German ancestries. I would date him without the freeby gift. It's an original approach in any case. Wonder if it works?

Charlene said...

I've never heard of Gerard Butler. He wouldn't even make it on the F list for me, let alone the "f" list.

pomme said...

gerald butler is very "ben affleck" !
