Today's Blind Items

This C list actress with a name that really stands out has generally made good movies. She gets many more offers than she actually accepts. She could easily be an upper B list actress if she wanted to but she enjoys her private life too much to change anything except for the perfect role. Our actress in fact, makes substantially more money as a result of her private life than she probably ever would amass as an actress despite the always rave reviews of her acting talent. She he has been in this space before for her, how shall I say this, her willingness to provide an experience to certain other members of the film community. Now, she has added to her stable a woman who has been seen countless times over the past few weeks with this Academy Award nominated A list movie actor who must enjoy being treated like crap because that is exactly what this woman specializes in for her male clients. Of course our C list actress arranges the meetings and thus also gets a significant percentage of the fee.

Lee lee Sobieski and Tom Cruise.

ElsieFire said...

Christine you beat me to it!

Seconding Lee Lee!

IndigoBlue said...

I'm confused....

ElsieFire said...

I might add though, I disagree with Tom Cruise as the 'seen with' because unless Katie's in the stable, well, no.

maggiemei said...

I was about to say Leelee Sobiesky for the C list actress.

But has Tom been seen around frequently with a woman?

Lauren said...

I am confused too. But I always thought Parker Posey's name was super interesting.

But I also love the Lee Lee/TC Guess.

Back to deep thought and confusion.

palealebrew10 said...

I rally don't understand this blind item very well TBH. Are there three people or two people..? Isn't Tom Cruise gay? Can someone with greater IQ clarify this for me?

Ayesha said...

This one is actually worth thinking about. And whoever she is, I kind of admire her.

Majik said...

Lauren beat me to it...Parker Posey.

Cheryl said...

Was LeeLee the one from the blind item last year about TC getting head from a woman in his car?

SkittleKitty said...

LeeLee is the actress who makes more money not acting (serving as a dominatrix and, evidently, the madam for others).
The question is: who is the actor that is seeing one of LeeLee's 'special escorts?'

Myrlin said...

paleale--The C-list actress is a dominatrix on the side. Now she's branched out into pimping out other girls, including one who has been seen recently with an A-list actor. No clue about whether the new girl is an actress herself.

Leelee Sobieski has been rumored for years to be a dominatrix Tom Cruise, the rumor goes, has hired her, not for heterosexual sex, but for other specialty "services." But I don't think he's the actor in this particular blind item--he hasn't been seen around recently with a new girlfriend, for one.

Jungle007 said...

Wait... Leelee PLAYED a dominatrix in "Walk Over Me", I didn't know that she really WAS one...

say word??

And I agree with several above that TC doesn't work as the male nominee... I'm thinking it's talking about a male A-list nominee who has been seen with a little-known woman lately who is ALSO now a dominatrix... and I only ever see Tom with Katie.

Ed said...

Our C list actress wasnt seen with the A list star, the woman she added to the stable was.

That being said Im on board with the Lee Lee Sobiesky Guess. Though I think the A list actor would be someone more like Clooney, or someone single. ( I know that it doesnt matter in Hollywood but I just dont get the Tom Cruise feeling here)

Pookie said...

yay, now THIS is juicy. am loving the leelee guess!

*wonders what other c-lister has a "name that really stands out"*

David D. said...

Lee Lee seems a bit young to be so entrepreneurial. Gina Gershon has an interesting name...

DNfromMN said...

It's LeeLee for sure. Not sure who the guy is. Who went to the Oscars with a new girl?

Janepod said...

Now THIS is the kind of blind item I love. I'm guessing Terence Howard for the dude. We know he has issues with that sorta thing. Though he's so not A list. Clooney?

viking's vault said...

Lee Lee Sobieski-Mickey Rourke-Evan Rachel Wood

Ehjah said...

viking's vault...good guess, i second that guess!!

Nosey Parker said...

Lee Lee Sobieski
Mickey Rourke
Bai Ling

Ms.Leigh said...

wait, WHAT?! how is she a dom? she looks so sweet and innocent. def. doesn't pull off the look, but the attitude? whoa.

so help me understand.. tc whose supposed to be gay is seeing leelee for naked beatdowns?

maybe that's why katie invited everyone over for dinner!

shakey said...

I'm feeling viking's vault guess better than anyone else's, despite the fact that it's not known if the woman who the actor is with is also an actress.

shazzzba said...

GEE WIZ....WOW

figgy said...

Wait--how does everyone know for sure it's LeeLee? Is this a rumor that's been around?? I've never heard it, and I am usually SO up on stupid Hollywood gossip!

ChristyC said...

I'm confused about the last part -- I thought Lee Lee specialized in being a dominatrix (which, yes, is a rumor that has been around here and elsewhere), but Enty's comment about about being treated like crap makes it seem like this woman would be the submissive one, right?

jenna (original) said...

Great guess Viking! I'm totally seeing that.

amazonblue said...

How does one become a dominatrix? I missed that one on career day.

Nosey Parker said...

This is why I think it's Bai Ling -

Seems her website features photographic proof of Bai when she ran into "The Wrestler" comeback kid Mickey Rourke (repeatedly) at the Chateau Marmont earlier this week. Lips were said to be locked and loaded... http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/thedishrag/2009/01/bai-ling-mickey.html

Lisa said...

ChristyC "but Enty's comment about about being treated like crap makes it seem like this woman would be the submissive one, right?"

No hon, Enty means the GUY with the LeeLee's newly hired dominatrix is the one who likes being treated like crap. She treats HIM like crap.

hotchacha said...

Lucy Liu for the dominatrix?

Miranda said...

Ha ha ha. I don't know if it's her, but it says on her Wiki page that Tom Cruise was "very kind and considerate with [her]" on the set of Eyes Wide Shut.

Yeah, I *bet* he was ;)

Janepod said...

That is a great guess but Mickey Rourke is not A-list, right?

ms snarky said...

I can see the Bai Ling guess, she must need cash by now. But, how about marisa tomei? she's got some substance abuse issues, it's been said?

califblondy said...

Doesn't being nominated for an Oscar put somebody on the A-List?

bionic bunny! said...

@ amazonblue: practice, dear, practice!

califblondy, i don't think so, necessarily. not just a nom. being able to open a movie on one's name alone, or WINNING the oscar usually does, though.

i'm on board w/ the lee lee guess.

selenakyle said...

LeeLee Sobieski.

selenakyle said...

Damn, these f*cking people party hard.

Oh, if I could only be a fly on the wall... just once...

NYC2008 said...

Lee Lee is a Dom? Weird? Can't picture it...

Liz's Box said...

Mena S.

BinkyM said...

If this is Leelee Sobieski, then Enty has seriously muffed his description of her! She certainley hasn't "generally made good movies," unless he hasn't seen "Wicker Man," "Eyes Wide Shut" (ugh!), "In The Name of the King" (that's Uwe Boll, for crying out loud!), "Joan of Arc," "88 Minutes," "Here on Earth," and a lot of other execrable celluloid that if I continue, I'll burst into tears.

Alright: I just checked here Tomatometer rating at Rotten Tomatoes and it's 31%. I rest my case. So either Enty's typing out his ass, he's had a few too many martinis, or this isn't Leelee Sobieski.

(And as an aside to the people who think Leelee doesn't "look" like a dominatrix, what the hell do you think doms look like? They can look for Donna Reed, for heaven't sake!)

Jungle007 said...

I also agree with Mickey Rourke. I honestly was gonna say that with my first post and deleted it because I wasn't sure if he would be A list. But he does seem like a sexual deviant.

cibele said...

I saw The Wrestler the other day and on a good day I would give M. Rourke a C List or worst. Never A list. LOL

Chris said...

mena suvari

Audrey said...

I LOVE THE MENA SUVARI GUESS. think about it...she is soooooo private, and rarely in movies, but she was in american beauty and some other GENERALLY good movies. i like this, because i think that lee lee has SUCK movies, AND AND AND, MENA SUVARI is a pretty fucking stand-out name.

carlasee said...

Hey, do you think the "*She he* has been in this space before" is a clue or just a typo? Just wondering...

A said...

Mena Suvari
LeeLee
Gina Gershon

I love these choices. BTW : some Academy Award Actor nominees and winners who come to mind :

David Strathairn
Terrance Howard
Viggo Mortensen
Ralph Fiennes
Jude Law
Ben Kingsley
Joaquin Phoenix
Benicio del Toro

and yeah ... Mickey Rourke gets a "get out of manwhore jail" card :)

Jamie's Girl said...

Goofball Parker Posey sounds about right. Don't think this one is LeeLee.

slappywhyte said...

Elizabeth Hasselback

carlasee said...

I think the phrase "has added to her stable" is also a clue.

Leelee has a movie coming out called "The Mad Cow".

Oh, she's also in "Public Enemies" with Johnny Depp, Marion Cotillard, Christian Bale, and Giovanni Ribisi. So she does do a decent movie every once in awhile.

NYC2008 said...

(And as an aside to the people who think Leelee doesn't "look" like a dominatrix, what the hell do you think doms look like? They can look for Donna Reed, for heaven't sake!)

She looks weak to me. I can't picture her as being badass. Her face, body, etc. I don't know. Just my opinion.
Just like Jen Aniston. Can't picture her being a Dom. I can picture her crying, but working as a Dom...NO.

Landry said...

Just the throw a C-list name that stands out: Zooey Deschanel

(

Jungle007 said...

I honestly don't know about Leelee either.
Mostly because of the movie I mentioned before "Walk all over me"...
Is it known/shown in the US? Not sure because it co-stars a Canadian supermodel Tricia Helfer (the original host of Canada's Next Top Model)

Even in the film, where Leelee plays a Dominatrix, she seems submissive and very withdrawn. It also just seems too convenient...

I also have to agree with many above. I like Leelee but she hsn't been in so many great films. Joyride comes to mind... and she's been in about 6 movies in the past year! And none have really been "the perfect role".

Plus, I've never heard of her providing any "experience to any of the members of the film community". I think the reason she seemed so likely is because most of her movies have no hype and very little advertisement.

Jungle007 said...

I'd rather believe it's someone like Rosario Dawson (who also plays a dom in Sin City, but a believable one), or Neve Campbell. Maybe Rose McGowan...

A said...

after reading this "She he has been in this space before for her, how shall I say this, her willingness to provide an experience to certain other members of the film community ", am gonna go with Gina Gershon.

sounds to me the woman in question could easily play both sides of the sexual fence for her male clients. didn't Gina became notorious years ago for trolling strip bars and basically going all bull-butch around men?

also, does anybody really know how she makes money these days?

Andrea said...

I don't know how all this works, but Lainey at laineygossip.com always describes Rachel McAdams as extremely picky with her roles - that she gets offered a bunch of things all the time and is really choosy about which ones she signs up for. She was notoriously private about the whole McGosling relationship (to the point where I think the relationship turned bad?). Plus directors love her and rave about her skills.

But, is she C-List?

No idea who the other people are.

Andy said...

LeeLee is no pixie. She's almost 6' tall. Mena Suvari is what, 5'2, 95 pounds? Her a dominatrix? I don't think so. :)

Pink Skull said...

Jaimee Priestley?

Paisley said...

For the LeeLee doubters, so a search on this website and you'll see her name pop up a few times in connection with Tom Cruise, "not" dressing like a dominatrix, etc. Plus, she was this blind item reveal back in July 2007:

Going from one extreme to another. This actress who was on everyone's lips a few years ago, is back and going stronger than ever. She is extremely tall and some say overly aggressive towards men. Her relationships have not lasted because she LOVES to be in control. Her latest conquest has nothing to do with love and everything to do with a part she wants. The fact that he is smaller than her and loves to be dominated by her is just a plus in her book. If you think Angelina and Billy Bob were odd with their blood, then what this actress collects will really make you shudder.

stiffkittens said...

Mena Suvari (if gossip is correct) is a slave - not a sub, an actual full blown slave. She had a two year marriage to her 'master', and has been trying to find someone to fill his shoes.

Do the people that discount actresses for being too weak/not the 'type', know what real doms act like? Have they met any?

I'm not being snarky - i'm just curious because so many housewives or friendly middle aged women are secret doms - it's rarely like the movies ;)

Not being able to tell what they are is pretty fundamental in the whole secrecy thing, i should think.

Also Aniston could never be one - she would actually have to gain a backbone and a personality. I think the naughtiest she gets is coke lines, and maybe a golden moment in the shower. To be honest i can't imagine her letting him do that - it's probably why Johnny Boy has to have hot tub parties when he's away from her...

God how can you be a cokewhore and still be cardboard? That's what annoys me. How did this turn into a Aniston rant?! Lol...

I thought it was a given that Tommygirl was the A Lister?

Manda said...

Ben Affleck!

hehehe

B626 said...

Gina G a good guess.

Marian said...

Parker Posey first came to mind as an someone who has the talent to be A list if she wanted.

Ginnefer Goodwin (sp?) first came to mind as someone seen with an A-lister, Tom Hanks, recently

Never said...

What about Chloe Sevigny?

Katie said...

I got so caught up in parsing the phrase "treated like crap" for, um, excremental subtext that I forgot to wonder who the dominatrix is.

Not sure about Gina Gershon's script judgment, though. She co-starred in Showgirls, possibly the most deliciously awful film ever made.

Dish said...

long time lurker first time post... I am with the Ginnifer Goodwin guess. There was something very odd about seeing her and Tom Hanks walk hand in hand in to a party on Oscar night.

Derek said...

lee lee while positibely C list has never been considered an acting talent.. of any sort.

bros said...

could be mena suvari, if this post is all about being a dom and treating men like crap, that's pretty mean-ah. and i like the stable clue too.

Jungle007 said...

Paisley- granted, that reveal shows that Leelee is dominating, but the part that says:

If you think Angelina and Billy Bob were odd with their blood, then what this actress collects will really make you shudder.

is referring to her weird collection of hair. She collects a lock of hair from every actor/actress she co-stars with.

But IMO that doesn't correlate to her willingness to provide an experience to certain other members of the film community.

Not saying you're wrong, because I wouldn't doubt if she is a dominatrix. But the rest of the blind just doesn't scream Leelee to me. Check out her filmography. She is not picky about her roles...

ATM said...

Catherine Keener came to mind for this one; C-list, good movies (Being John Malkovich), could work more than she does, has a stand out name...

Mooshki said...

It's Leelee.

Sporky said...

I can't picture Lee Lee as a dom but I guess stranger things have happened. I always think about that 9/11 poem she read aloud on Leno..."A day. Just like any other. Just one. Running. Screaming. Shouting. Me. You...." Bizarre and hilarious.

Ernestine said...

Mooshki, I've gotta disagree with you. :-) I totally thought it was Lee Lee, too, and THEN I remembered Eyes Wide fucking Shut -- one of the most tragically horrendous movies I've EVER seen - -tragic because sweet little Stanley's Kubrick's name was evilly attached to it! What a shiteous experience. I had to watch it for a film class, too -- six hours of irritating plink-plink-plinking piano playing and Tom Cruise's PITIFUL acting and fake as hell London nightime street sets. UGH.

Anyway, I agree with the people who say that Lee Lee has NOT made "generally good movies." No way, no how. "Rave reviews"? No way. Uh uh.

I'm on the Mena bandwagon. Her breakout in American Beauty was lauded by nearly everybody (and THAT movie is awesome!), and she was in a sprinkling of things afterword that were generally well-recieved, but what's she been in since then? Plus, she DOES have sort of an ~edgy~ look to her. I could see her as a dom -- a better-looking one, too. Sorry, but most dudes I know would probably think Lee Lee was sort of fug. I know I do. Judgment call, but whatevs...

J-Mo said...

"Never" suggested Chloe Sevigney. Seems to fit except for the generally good movies part, the Brown Bunny(?) was so stupid.

Laurie said...

Don't know if it's the right guess, but based on his entire body of work, Mickey Rourke is surely A list?

He's a weird one to peg, he is somewhat iconic even though he's been a ghost for a long time.

childeroland said...

If Sobiesksi was so picky, why would she do a Uwe Boll film and stuff like 'In a Dark Place other direct-to-vid (or nearly so) stuff? And after 'America Beauty', Suvari's film roles have been something of a mixed bag. In terms of arty projects, Sevigny's record's nearly as perfect as a hipster actress's gets, and arguably she's the best actor. This feels a lot like her or Parker Posey, except Posey ended up doing that TV sitcom and Jessica Alba's 'Eye' remake.

NYC2008 said...

"God how can you be a cokewhore and still be cardboard? That's what annoys me. How did this turn into a Aniston rant?! Lol..."

LOL! Snort!

I think I would want to be the Dom instead of the Slave. Sounds Fun!

Gina Gershon-Love her & can picture her as a Dom.

dreadpiratecuervo said...

What about Mena being the C List actress/madam & hiring LeeLee to be the dom, since that's not Mena's cup of tea & she wouldn't do it herself?

Mooshki said...

I thought Enty meant that Lee Lee took low-profile roles to stay under the radar unless they were "perfect." Even in her crappy movies, I still like her acting. But I can see Mena too.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Mickey Rourke has just crawled out of a has-been abyss to which he may soon be returning; despite the Oscar nod, he is nowhere near A list.

Bad Fish said...

I love how everyone talks about Lee Lee's look as if that would somehow take her out of the running. "Well she LOOKS sweet..." Uh, no, she doesn't. Ever seen her red carpet photos? She never smiles. Its always a scowl. The last time I posted a picture of her on my blog, it felt like her eyes were burning through my computer screen.

Beyond that, its the cutest and sweetest looking ones that make the most money. And who said people's faces were a reflection of their personality? I look pretty cute and sweet. I look fucking adorable. And I'd probably trip a crippled person if he looked at me sideways.

I really want to believe this is LeeLee because it seems to fit, but if we're going on the merit of her movies and the clue EL has given us in that direction, then I'd have to honestly say maybe we need to restart thinking this Domme blind items.

stiffkittens said...

Lol Bad Fish... She does has 'teacher eyes' - cold and piercing.

Mooshki said...

Vixen, that's what I thought too. You never know, though, what might motivate one of Enty's rankings. For example, the way Tom Cruise went from A to B. I bet the offers are flooding in to Mickey right now, which might make him A-list for the time being. Hell, I'm still in disbelief over Ent's calling Vincent D'Onofrio B-/C+. :)

Karmen said...

Leelee makes sense, but she seems awfully young to be a madame. Doesn't that take years of experience to acquire different women to be in her "stable"? Parker Posey makes sense, but she's been in some crummy movies. Dude, I dunno.

On a completely random note - is it a bad thing that I had a dream about blind items the other night and I wanted to email the story to Enty? What's even worse is that when I woke up, I was a little disappointed it wasn't an actual BI.

Beautevil said...

Can't it be Chloe Sevigny, that explains the she/he (typo?), she played an important role in Boys Don't Cry, about a he/she (eventhough she doesn't play the transvestite:P)

She almost received an oscar for that part, and she looks kinda edgy, I can imagine her being a dom.

She also turned down a lot of important movies, that would make a lot of money, but she just wanted to make good movies.. That also explains why she isnt B list, but C list..

Don't know about the Alist actor though..

Anonymous said...

C-list domanatrix: LeeLee Sobieski
Male Actor: Mickey Rourke
New addition to domanatrix's "stable": Evan Rachel Wood OR Bai Ling

Stevenson214 said...

I've thought that LeeLee was more private than your typ celeb because she's gay. Mena seems more the type. Ppl who like those games, like those games, top or bottom.

Anonymous said...

My guess is Kirsten Dunst. She doesn't do much these days, or rather, intermittently. She has lots of potential but waits for the "perfect" role. Forget Lee Lee.

Anonymous said...

Evan Rachel Wood:
-Has been in low key movies
-Dom for Mickey Rouke
