NY Daily News Blind Item

Which supposedly squeaky-clean starlet was a big fan of some pretty hardcore drugs back in college? Her favorite tagline is, "Wow, the drugs in Hollywood are so much better than what we used to get." Of course, all the evidence of her hard partying has been erased. Once she hit the big time a couple of years back, her publicist made the rounds of her pals and bought up all the photo evidence of her former fun.

Anne Hathaway?

Anne Hathawy, only because I can't seem to think of anyone else who fits the "starlet" description, the "squeaky clean" description and who went to college....

RagDoll said...

oops, sorry Melissa. Cross post. I agree w/you.

Cancan said...

I agree. Steven Huvane is her publicist -- he has the good sense and forethought to do something like that (especially because she was in such family-friendly fare back then.) Now THAT is a good publicist.

Actually not many starlets even WENT to college--so Anne fits pretty well.`

sandman said...

yup, college is the big clue, most did't finish h/s.
how about portman?

Brenda22 said...

How about Natalie Portman. She's also another starlet who went to college. A friend who recently attended a Harvard Alumni function saw her drunk off her ass being held up by her boyfriend.

ally said...

Anne Hathaway transferred to NYU that seems so unlikely that there is not good drugs in NY, my friend gets good stuff out there....

Anne hit the big time more than a couple of years back though. Kids or no kids, you probably heard of The Princess Diaries (2001) and has a steady resume since then. Although, the Devil Wears Prada was probably after college... hmmm.

Same with Natalie Portman.

GammaGirl said...

What about Kristen Bell? She went to Tisch and I heard from someone who went there with her that she was a partier. Doesn't make me any less of a fan, but I think she's a possible match for this one.

Maggie Gyllenhaal?

Marcy said...

Jennifer Garner. She went to school in Ohio.

I know Natalie is a fan of weed, but probably not the other stuff.

donna said...

have to agree with you guys, my first thought was anne hathaway, as I just read something that she smokes cigs .. and that her "people" really didnt want the public to know .. imagine what else we dont know .. like that it wasnt her that turned her b/f in, it was HIS assistant .. yeah okay ..

Kara said...

This sounds like someone that was never around Hollywood until AFTER college, doesn't it? If you were famous when you were 12 wouldn't you have already had access to the "good stuff"?

Flora said...

bad fish- really? Because a few years ago Natalie was so anti-!

Grace said...

Natalie Portman has openly admitted that she wanted to try new things while in college, including drinking and drug taking. I don't think this is her.

Prisca said...

It's got to be Jenifer Garner-- she went to a tiny liberal arts college in noplace Ohio (as mentioned above). She was rumored to be a bitch then and certainly miles away from Hollywood or any other major city (unless Cleveland counts!).

Starburst said...

Did Rachel Bilson go to college?

W said...

Didn't Anne Hathaway admit to having had a problem with speed? I thought she said something about it in an interview after Princess Diaries, presumably to avoid looking too "goody-goody"...

Molly said...

Could be anyone. Laura Linney went to Brown University.

Katja said...

What about the pushing daisies blonde?

Kristine said...

Rachel McAdams? I consider her squeaky clean and it looks like she went to college.

Molly said...

kristine, she's a great guess.

Ernestine said...

When I think *starlet*, I don't exactly think of ladies in their thirties like Garner or Linney. I think of young actresses in their late teens or early twenties.

My vote's with Hathaway. She went to Vassar for two years with a friend of mine and could get pretty crunk, apparently.

Judi said...

Rossum?

Lucy said...

Anne Hathaway is such a dork. I could see her trying to be cool and say something of that nature about coke.

Beth said...

I like the Hathaway guess, but she was famous before she went to university.

Same with Natalie Portman. Also, say what you want about weed being a bridging "drug" and her being drunk, but she doesn't take me as a coke fiend.

I'm torn... I want it to be Hathaway, but I think Kristen Bell is a better fit.

Beth said...

Sorry, with Hathaway and Portman, I meant to say that they probably would have been image conscious enough not to have their photo repeatedly taken doing embarrassing things. There are a lot of stupid people out there, but they seem fairly mature, regardless of the substances they may enjoy in private.

kathryn said...

Kristen Bell was the only one mentioned so far that was a no-name when they were actually at college.
