Today's Blind Items

Even an A lister gets unlucky sometimes. There was some previous discussion whether this individual is actually A list. If he isn't A then he is right on the cusp. Apparently all the women surrounding his table thought he was A list or at least wanted him to think so. Allegedly dating someone everyone thought he was behaving himself except in the drinking department until a model walked by. He immediately ran over to the model and began trying to hit on her. Apparently though she didn't know who he was. When he informed her drunkenly who he was and what he had been in, she said, "I don't really care. Plus if you need to list your accomplishments to get a date, you really have not accomplished all that much." It would have been nice if this had been a quiet conversation, but unfortunately for our film actor the entire group surrounding the table all heard it. Nice.

Ryan Gosling

Hollie said...

I'm going with Ryan Phillippe (he always seems to be drunk) or Ryan Gosling (allegedly dating Rachel McAdams, but rumors going around they broke up and he's always on TMZ coming out of Hollywood clubs).

Molly said...

kristine, you beat me to it. i think it's ryan gosling, too.

twunty mcslore said...

Eddie Murphy? Oh wait, he likes MALE models.

pomme said...

Leonardo Dicaprio:he doesn't resist a model!

MontanaMarriott said...

I LOVE HER RESPONSE

And Twunty, Eddie like MALE models, who wear women'c clothing, lol

twunty mcslore said...

I'm sorry, I meant to say SHEMALE models. Oooopsy, my bad

Kate said...

I would say Leo DiCaprio, but isn't he A-List?

It reminds me of this Ryan Gosling sighting on Just Jared awhile back:

—Ryan Gosling We saw the dude dancing up a storm at a jungle-themed party last weekend in L.A.. He was holding a plastic bone and gyrating spastically, like he was being electrocuted over and over again. Also, he seemed to be trying to mack on fugly girls who were ignoring him. Injustice! Tragedy!

I think it's Gosling.

My guess is Gerard Butler

sunnyside1213 said...

Gerard Butler has been sober for 10 years.

wade said...

Shia?? He's been in some big "A" movies but people aren't seeing them for him (like going to see Indy for Harrison Ford, Transformers for the FX, etc).

Even though he's been in "A" films, he's not an "A" actor yet.

Of course, I may be completely wrong.

diatribes and dish said...

My guess was Gerard Butler, too. Weren't there some drunk pics of him recently? With Shanna Moakler? Maybe I'm wrong.

Carolyn said...

you're wrong

Mexi said...

I don't know why, but Seth Rogen pops into mind :( I so hope its not him, I have the biggest crush on him. I don't even know if he qualifies as "A"

Metatheria said...

True, GB has been sober for 10yrs but he has been linked to several models, there a videos of him trying to pick up younger women and failing, and he is commonly chided for having to tell people who is he and what he's done. No to mention he is known for being a huge flirt.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing but love for the hunky Scot, but this just sounds too much like something he would do...sadly.

Lori said...

I think this is Shia. There was a blind not too long ago about an A or B-lister that opened a popcorn flick, and there was a lot of debate in the comments about A versus B, etc. And I think that was Shia.

Plus, I just watched Lars and The Real Girl this weekend and don't want to picture Ryan Gosling for this. He is just too cute.

palealebrew10 said...

Yep Gerard Butler immediately popped to mind.

Tea Lady said...

But who have we recently been having discussions about whether he's A list or not... I think Enty meant us when he said that....wish I had a better memory!

LRS said...

Keanu was the first one that popped into my mind.

DNfromMN said...

Keanu is one we've had discussions about as far as is he really a-list.

not a famous adrian said...

Who out of these are allegedly dating someone? Ryan Phillipe is with Abbie Cornish, but I would never put him anywhere near A list.

k said...

I believe in Keanu Reeves, specially because the BI says "(...)everyone thought he was behaving himself except in the drinking department(...)" - I thought about the BI revealed where Reeves was really drunk.

Norah said...

shia or leo

Metatheria said...

"everyone thought he was behaving himself except in the drinking department(...)"

If GB has been sober for 10yrs then this could apply to him. He recently had a run in with a pap who accused him of assault and said he smelled like alcohol...maybe he's off the wagon. I hope not...

jax said...

i can't see Gerard 'sober' at all personally. he seems to be a drunkard in most pics taken after 1am.

and this would make sense:
"everyone thought he was behaving himself except in the drinking department "

sunnyside1213 said...

Well, to play devil's advocate, Gerard Butler has said he often has to tell people who he is. Hope he isn't drinking. He was supposed to be an insane drunk.

Jamie's Girl said...

Sorry, I don't know many people on this earth that don't know who Keanu and Leo are. Their movies are global blockbusters. Even I know how Aishwarya Rai is in Bollywood.

I would say someone like Gosling, whom, I wouldn't know if he walked up and told me who he was.

Sara said...

Sounds like Gosling to me.

ScottishMaid said...

Anybody remembers Steven Dorf, handsome actor on the verge of being an A-lister a while back, even dated shortly Pam Anderson and had a starring role opposite Wesley Snipes in the first Blade movie? Steven is a well-known party boy and usually hits on models. He probably has to remind people today of which movie he was in as he's been out of the spotlight unlike Gerard Butler who may have been unknown before 300 but who is now very recognizable on account of 300 being such a hit. Plus GB doesn't drink anymore. I was close to him at the After-Premiere party at TIFF this year and even talked to him and he didn't smell of alcohol.

Steven Dorf chased Miranda Kerr 3 years ago almost everywhere she was going and she wouldn't have anything to do with him.

GB seems prefer unknown women who hang at bars and some of them are really not tall or beautiful enough to be models. Just look at the girl in the TMZ video of Gerry hot for the PYT.

He was only linked to one model and nobody is really sure if they were indeed dating or not.

No, your guy is Steven Dorf.

These days most people automatically recognize GB when they see him.

PK said...

I'm leaning Shia for this one. It's not Ryan Gosling, or that spittle talker GB. Or Steven Dorf? WHO?? Exactly. Sorry, but he was NEVER close to A list.

shazzzba said...

THERE ARE PICTURES OF G.B. TALKING TO AMBER VALLETTA...THAT LOOK ODD...ALSO KATE BECKINSALE'S HUSBAND IS IN SOME OF THE PHOTO'S

BlahFrickinBlah said...

I think that Ryan Phillippe is too recognizable from his marriage to Reese. I would say that he is bordering on A list though. At the very least in name recognition.

pomme said...

if it's not Leo DiCaprio,it's Shia leboeuf:almost A list,maybe drink trouble!

Angela said...

Butler doesn't carry in real life the same muscles he had in 300. This is the kind of guy that can impress with make up and CGI but doesn't carry the same kind of charisma in real life. A few years ago, his name was whispered as the new James Bond but he can't hold a candle to Daniel Craig.

Keanu wouldn't have to say anything for people to recognize him. The Matrix is still huge. It's not as if he had to say: "Hey, I'm Keanu Reeves. You might know me from films such as Speed, Devil's Advocate and Parenthood. Do you want to have sex?"

Seth Rogen looks like a decent and regular fellow, not the kind of guy who would milk his fame. And Ryan Gosling hasn't made any real blockbuster outside of "The Notebook". Stephen Dorff? Don't make me laugh with somebody who was the second male lead in an Uwe Boll movie. He's now C-list at best.

Shia LaBeouf is a better guess. He might not open movies on his own but he stars in a big franchise, which would make him technically A-list. But, as the current it-boy, he must have quite some luck with the ladies.

Anyway, the blind item would fit Gerard Butler best with Shia a distant second.

phillyphan said...

What might the expression "surrounding the table" indicate? Is it pointing to a movie the almost-A-Lister has been in? I don't see many movies, so I'm asking for some "de-coding" help here...

Lola23 said...

Yes, it's Gerard Butler.

AnnieX_01 said...

"Allegedly dating someone everyone thought he was behaving himself except in the drinking department until a model walked by"

I think Ent just forgot to put a comma between "allegedly dating someone" and "everyone thought".
I read this as he's allegedly dating someone and therefore he was behaving himself (with the other women), but not behaving himself as far as the drinking goes.
Okay, so it's someone who supposedly has a girlfriend and behaves around other women, but clearly is not.

As for the A-lister status, "on the cusp" seems to imply a rising star.
Add me to the Ryan Gosling list!

nunaurbiz said...

Gerry has been sober a lot longer than 10 years. He became a drunk when he was unhappy in law school and becoming a lawyer. Some people think he drinks because he goes to bars and such, but he doesn't. Some people might even think he's drunk because they can't understand his brogue.

Gerry has said he has to explain to people who he is, but it WASN'T in the context of picking up women. Believe me, he has no trouble in that department! Remember the reveal about slipping women he admires cards for a concierge service?

Besides, I don't think Enty would consider him A list. Yet.

LOVED the Stephen Dorff answer, but I don't think he's EVER been considered A list. He is a good actor, but he's a screw-up IRL.

Dschingis said...

Leo, Keanu, they are too big. even if not an actual A, they were it, and they are known. everybody in the club would know that they are there.


Since passing over the opportunity to at least get to a nice pic, some rumours and some free PR. A models life is very short, in terms of business speaking,the model must be a pretty good one, or already in a powerfull hook-up.

kelliknows said...

I have no idea who this is, but it made me laugh.. a model talking about 'accomplishments'!? I guess her list would be throwing up and changing clothes..sorry, but it just cracked me up..

Andy said...

For some reason I thought of James McAvoy for this one....Slightly less recognizable than Gosling, but who knows?

Molly said...

james mcavoy is married, so i think that rules him out.

Interplanet Janet said...

Orlando Bloom?

Christopher said...

I don't think that it's Butler. HE seems a bit smoother than that. I remember on one of the BI reveals, enty revealed that Butler would hand women a pre-paid card or something with a note on it that said, "Buy something as beautiful and exotic as you are."

I'm hopping on the Keanu bandwagon. There have been debates about his a, b-list status and in a BI reveal, when they were doing a script reading, he came in PLASTERED and even had a burrito in his pocket or something. Since we haven't heard about any drunken script readings lately, my money is on him.

Mooshki said...

Hmmm, I riled up a bunch of people a few weeks ago when I said Christian Bale wasn't quite A-list... :)

Kristine said...

I'm going to agree with the first Kristine and say Ryan Gosling.

Sweater said...

I guess I'm really out of touch. No idea what in the world would cause Shia,Gerard or Ryan to be considered A list, much less someone to be argued about whether or not they are.

Perhaps I'm confused on what is an A list actor. I thought it was successful franchise along with other films they can open by themselves and/or an Oscar.
?? confused here

Molly said...

mooshki, i think anyone who is married is ruled out with this line:

Allegedly dating someone everyone thought he was behaving himself except in the drinking department until a model walked by.

slappywhyte said...

I'm going to say Clive Owen for every BI today ... also, what about Russell Crowe (not sure if either of them is married)

Gerard Butler, how is he A-List? -- nobody heard of him before 300, and he is unrecognizable in that from the CGI and fake abs etc -- for example, i think Jason Statham would put way more butts in the seats than Butler would

agreed that Keanu is a bit too famous to have to say ... "yeah i was Neo, ... you know "The One""

and what young model wouldn't know Shia

Molly said...

slappy, clive and russell are both married according to www.imdb.com.

Beth said...

My first thought was Keanu given all the discussions on his status. Regardless if he's A or B, I think both he and Leo are recognizable enough that they wouldn't have to explain themselves.

I think of GB as being far too smooth to pull this crap.

Shia was my second guess, but is he known to be dating anyone.

That said, I am going with Ryan Gosling.

Btw, I would like to think that Enty wouldn't waste our time by posting a BI about a has-been like Stephen Dorff. So, no, no, no. NO!
