Four For Friday

#1 & #2 - This C list almost exclusively movie actress who has been in some important movies thought she had found true love. It sounds like true terror. In what should be her coming out party for her first real big lead role, she instead has to deal with her new B list writer/director boyfriend who loves nothing more than hitting her. Very careful not to leave a mark on her face, she nevertheless was almost in tears on the red carpet from the pain he inflicted on her the night before her big premiere this week. Despite this, she still held his hand as they walked the red carpet. Sick I know.

#3 - This former A list movie actor and now pretend singer and movie actor was playing at a recent golf tournament. Along the side of the fairways were multi-million dollar homes. In the driveway of one of these homes was a huge RV painted in a rather garish color. Our actor said the RV distracted him and he refused to play until it was move out of his eyesight.

#4 - Want to make this married former A list television and movie actor stop coming to your hotel? Tell him he is banned from receiving any more massages from the male masseurs employed by the hotel because of his unwanted and unwelcome advances. Our actor hasn't been back since.

#4 Travolta

Rocket Queen said...

#3 - Jamie Foxx?
#4 - Travolta?

Ice Angel said...

#1 is so sad

nancer said...

i immediately thought of travolta because years ago i was at the esalen institute and he'd been there not long before---the male masseurs were still talking about him and how he always, ALWAYS wanted more than a massage and wasn't subtle about it either. this was in the early 80's.

princessdanikam said...

lainey had a blind about travolta and masseurs. I think this is him as well.

Moosefan said...

#3-Billy Boob(error but I am leaving it!) or Kevin Costner.
1/2-Sadness...

shazzzba said...

#4....I BELIEVE THEY CALL IT RELEASE
AND SOME MASSEURS DO OFFER THE
EXTRA SERVICE FOR A PRICE...
GROSS

Jennifer said...

#1 - Rachel Weisz and Darron Aronofsky? She's in Brothers Bloom and he's a screenwriter/director.

nancer said...

who had a movie premier this week that could be #1?

Jasmine said...

I think Rachel Weisz is more than C list and aren't they married? Not her, but with that said, I still have no clue.

It's just me! said...

#3 could be Terrence Howard. He was briefly A-List during his Oscar nomination season, but seems to have lost ground following all the bizarre interviews and the Iron Man calamity. Also, he released a craptastic album not too long back.

Bodie said...

maybe #1 is someone who had a film premiering in Cannes this past week?

Karmen said...

#1 & #2 - I was thinking Rachel Weisz, but she's been dating Darren Aronfsky since 2004. That's hardly a "new" boyfriend. Otherwise, I'd say they fit the bill. Still researching.
#3 - Billy Goat Doucheton
#4 - Trovolta

Rocket Queen said...

Bodie - that's what I'm thinking, too. Please don't be Tarantino!

Jasmine said...

biggest premier this week has been Terminator Salvation - Bryce Dallas Howard, Charlotte Gainsbourg are both in the cast.

Bryn said...

For #1 I was going to say Diane Kruger, Inglourius Basterds debuted at Cannes, but is she still dating Joshua Jackson, or someone new?

nichole said...

I don't think it's Tarantino. My friend dated him after he broke up with Uma and she said he was the sweetest, gentlest, nicest guy.

nichole said...

@Bryn - Diane Kruger is still with Joshua Jackson and they've been together over a year, so I don't think it's them.

nancer said...

i think kruger's still with joshua jackson but he's only directed one thing, written nothing i can find and is mainly an actor. don't think it's her.

Daria said...

Travolta is a television actor? Since when? I would still consider him A-list, and the BI says "former A list". Don't think it's him.

dimes said...

#3 - Doesn't Joaquin Phoenix play golf?

JW said...

#3 Joaquin Phoenix

Bodie said...

Travolta was on Welcome Back Kotter back in the day.

i just aged myself.

BinkyM said...

@Daria: Travolta started out as a TV actor (and was HUGE) on "Welcome Back, Kotter." It's what made him.

Billy Bob Thornton was who first came to mind for me, too, for the third one. It's a shame, too, as there was a time when he was outstanding, and I raced out to see his movies. "The Man Who Wasn't There" was a gorgeous piece of filmmaking.

Karmen said...

Actually, I don't think Billy Gruff sings in his band. Just plays some instrument. I'm going with Hobo Rapper Extraordinaire Joaquin Phoenix.

rtsew said...

Alec Baldwin #4?

rtsew said...

Does Joaquin have it together enough to play golf?

Bodie said...

LMAO @ rtsew

truth.

It's just me! said...

OK, #1 has to be Alison Lohman. She is the lead in Drag Me to Hell this week. She's been in White Oleander and Matchstick Men, which are pretty important. Now who's the #2?

Daria said...

Bryce Dallas Howard is married, so I don't think she fits #1.

Daria said...

Alison Lohman's boyfriend Dwight is a cameraman, not a director/writer.

Karmen said...

It's just me! - if your theory is right, then her boyfriend has to be Mark Neveldine, writer for Cranked. I found pictures of them at the event

Here's them at something for Cranked: High Voltage:
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3493304064/nm0004410

They're not holding hands here, but here they are at the Drag Me to Hell premiere:
http://movies.about.com/od/dragmetohell/ig/Drag-Me-to-Hell-Premiere-Pics/dragmetohellprem38.htm

Good job! I shouldn't sound so happy after realizing what he's done to her.

Karmen said...

Dammit. Where'd you find that, Daria? I posted that comment after you said that.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

#4 ia Travolta. Vinnie Barbarino, baby!

#3 My first thought was Jamie Fox, but I revise my guess to Billy Bob Thornton. "Former A-list" totally fits, he was def A-list when he won that Oscar for Sling Blade (albiet for screenplay). Oh how far the mighty douchebag has fallen.

DNfromMN said...

I'm gonna go with Russel Crowe for #3

It's just me! said...

I did a little more research on Alison...a lot of older biographies state the long-time boyfriend, but the blind says "new boyfriend." So I'm thinking the long-time boyfriend is history.

Also she was in Big Fish...another important film.

It's just me! said...

@Karmen check out Mark Neveldine's IMDB too. He's got an upcoming movie called "Gamer" starring none other than Alison Lohman.

Going with Ali ftw.

It's just me! said...

And she doesn't look too happy here. Sad if she is the answer to this blind.

http://www.aceshowbiz.com/events/Drag%20Me%20to%20Hell/ALO-069687.html

Daria said...

Ah! OK, you are right, it's Alison Lohman and Mark Neveldine FTW (or FTL, I guess). Wow.

paula said...

Dennis Quaid for #3 - there was a big charity golf tournament here a week ago played at a course surrounded by huge homes in a very high-dollar community. The RV was probably painted Clemson orange...

Angela said...

#3. Costner and Crowe are good picks but I'll add Steven Seagal to the mix.

Former A list? I guess he was A list for a while.
Pretend singer and movie actor? Check. He releases albums on his own vanity label and still makes direct to video movies.
Golfer? It looks like he can play. There was a commercial where he played golf.
Douchebag? Do we really need to answer that?

Billy Bob has huge temperament issues but the guy is definitely talented, as an actor and as a writer. His music career is not so impressive but he's a decent singer and did some good work on Warren Zevon's final album.

Karmen said...

@ It's just me! - I saw that picture, too. That's what made me think it was him. There's no picture of them holding hands. I'm still kinda dubious, but I think she's the best bet.

Russell Crowe and Dennis Quaid are both good guesses. Can't make up my mind.

nunaurbiz said...

I don't think #3 is Costner. he likes to golf, but not so much that he's not able to be distracted. At least, from what I know, he loves the distraction from good-looking women on the sidelines :-)

I would have guessed Joaquin, but I just can't imagine him on a golf course!!!!! :-D

selenakyle said...

OK--let's find out who this dickwad #2 is.

B-List writer/director boyfriend...

Then we
(a) hope that someone beats the living snot outta him, or
(b) settle for the total boycotting of all his projects past, present and future.

I got zero tolerance for abuse.

Karmen said...

I agree, selenakyle, but people still listen to Chris Brown and sadly defend him.

bflogurl said...

They call "that" kind of a massage "ending with a tug" around these parts =)

lutefisk said...

Don't forget Travolta also did tv movies, like "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble".

Judi said...

I'm with Selena. Let's get this dirtbag! Any suggestions on how to do it? Letter to his agent calling him on it?

Jasmine said...

Sadly, I do agree with all of you re: Alison Lohman. But it seems like he might be her fiance: http://movies.yahoo.com/summer-movies/drag-me-to-hell/1810029193/photos/589/13533

Karmen said...

@ Jasmine - I checked IMDb, her wikipedia page and whosdatewho.com - it doesn't say anything about her being engaged. The caption writer for Yahoo Movies probably just messed up. Happens. Either way, that picture's the proof. Nice work.

Ugh. I hate abusive men.

califblondy said...

I hate abusive men too, but she needs to get the f*ck away. Unfortunately, that kind of deal only escalates.

Mooshki said...

LOL, Lutefisk, how could we ever forget that gem?

lutefisk said...

We never will Mooshki!

Lisa (original) said...

@ bflogurl, LMAO, that's NASTY, funny, but NASTY! LOL!

a las doce said...

Oh, man, I love Alison Lohman. She was Nausicaa's voice in the Miyazaki movie, one of my daughter's favorites. That sucks for her--hopefully after the press whirlwind dies down she'll kick him to the curb.

TinselSass said...

RE: Jasmine said...
"biggest premier this week has been Terminator Salvation - Bryce Dallas Howard, Charlotte Gainsbourg are both in the cast."

The TERMINATOR SALVATION premiere was last week and Charlotte G is not in the cast.

Re: The Rachel W guesses... she and Darren A are married. I hear happily so.

This week's premieres included:
THE INTRUDERS, STRIPPED DOWN (whatever), UP. Did DRAG ME TO HELL have a premiere? That would support the Allison L guess. What about premieres in Cannes?

sandman said...

baldwin is a queen, but probably travolta

Judi said...

Tinsel, Drag Me premiered Wednesday and they did a photocall yesterday - where Alison wore a sundress. So maybe the abused is not her?

Grace said...

Kevin Costner was outed legitimately by a female masseuse in Scotland, I believe, but we're talking the male masseurs.

Grace said...

And that picture of Alison Lohman and her boyfriend at http://www.aceshowbiz.com/events/Drag%20Me%20to%20Hell/ALO-069687.html looks horribly creepy.

Erin said...

Alison Lohman has had leading parts in a few movies before this, though. The blind says this is "her first real big lead role." She was the main character in While Oleander and was one of the mains in Matchstick Men.

Whoever #2 is though is a disgusting piece of crap.

ardleigh said...

#1&#2 is just sad. I hope she CAN safely leave him.

#3- If this were your RV would you move it? I'd have a few choice words for him beginning with bite and ending in me.

#4- I'll go with Travolta. I heard before he has a weakness for hot oil.

SG said...

Im going to jump on the Allison Lohman bandwagon. The only other actresses that were leads of movies that opened this week were Jessica Biel (Easy Virtue), Sasha Grey (would have been her first mainstream breakout role, but she's engaged to her photographer), and Amy Adams (dating another actor).


Unless of course this isn't a current blind...

Teresa said...

Russell is not #3. Number one - he is not a golfer. Number two - he had been in England for over a month, filming Robin Hood and he has not appeared at any celebrity golf tournaments.

shakey said...

That Neveldine guy looks like a Cro-Magnon man.

littlemanwhatnow said...

that man looks terrible in his pics like a real creep. i'm on the alison train...
even in white oleander and matchstick men she really didn't blow up. i could def. see her as C list.

Jenny S said...

Back in the late 80's, when Travolta's career was on the skids, pre Look Who's Talking, he grabbed my cousin's ass. My MALE cousin's ass. Cousin was 15 at the time.

According to this site ...

http://www.dennisquaid-zone.com/

... Dennis Quaid was scheduled to attend the BMW golf tournament.

PollyPureBred said...

Oh SHIT! Now I have that Travolta song in my head..."Gonna Let her In..."

ahdaboom said...

#3, Wow. Fragile.

#4, Isn't Travolta STILL considered A list?

watcher said...

Ent I love your photos of the Spanish Royal Family regardless of any snarky comments you may make. In fairness, I am not sure the R.F. are relevant to 2009 Spain. I visited parts of Spain in fall 2008 and saw no news about the R.F.

Exception to the relevance of the R.F.: in 1981, the young King Carlos (age 40-ish) appeared on TV ordered Franco-supporting military back to barracks thereby thwarting a coup.

I'm not sure Spain would have been the dynamic, exciting country I visited in 2008 without that intervention of young King Carlos in 1981.

If I remember correctly Franco ruled 1939-1975. The new king Carlos was expected to be a puppet for the fascist supporters - wrong.

Excellent film about 1944 Spain and the fight against Franco - Pan's Labyrinth. Not a feel good film, but beautiful to look at.

asdf said...

Video of Alison Lohman on the red carpet for that premiere:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEUhfNfnThQ

Chantelle said...

It's definitely alison lohman. Makes sense why enty referred to the relationship as "true terror" with drag me to hell being a horror movie and all.

B626 said...

Many smiling faces at the Drag Me to Hell premiere, Alison Lohman not one of them. Can't Sam Raimi get Bruce Campbell to go kick that worthless boyfriend in the head several times?

shakey said...

notice the little bruise on Alison's upper right arm during the interview on that video? It's little, but big enough to know someone dug their thumb in too hard when she was grabbed.

I hope she dumps him soon and he's not one of those types to say, "if I can't have her, no one will". He probably gives her a mental beatdown as well.

Chris said...

There is a picture(#15)of Alison Lohman and Neveldine holding hands and walking the red carpet at the Drag Me To Hell premiere on the Monsters and Critics website...she doesn't look happy in any of the pictures with him although she lights up in the pictures with Justin Long...

Steph said...

I agree with you all on #1.

1. Alison Lohman (although I would argue that White Olleander was her first starring role).

2. Billy Bob Thorton (b/c he's an unreasonable nutjob)

3. Pierce Brosnan (just because) LOL!

the.princess.leia said...

#3: Okay, I was on the BBT bandwagon as soon as I read the blind, but then I started doing some research. I'm changing my guess to Kevin Costner and here are my reasons:

a. Let's face it, KC used to be a big star. He even won 2 Oscars for Dances with Wolves. However, he has not made the best choices the last few years (ahem, Rumor Has It, ahem)
b. We know he loves golf. According to his imdb, not only did he play several rounds of golf with President Reagan in the 80s, but he's also played in the Celebrity Golf Tournament at Pebble Beach (California)
c. Also, he was in the golf movie "Tin Cup"; I know it's a stretch but I'm trying to link him.
>If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.

the.princess.leia said...

Also, I know this is a little OT, but it does pertain to Kevin Costner and I was just dying to post it.

According to imdb: His frontal nude scene in For Love of the Game (1999) was reportedly deleted after being met with laughter at test screenings.

I'm sure this is old news to some of you guys, but it was the first time I had seen it and I doubled over from so much laughter!

LauraM said...

#! - Alison Lohman - Poor thing, hope she starts loving herself more and leaves that douche head
#3 - I thought of Billy Bob right away, but now I'm inclining towards Dennis Quaid.
#4 - Travolta makes a lot of sense.

Wow these weren't too hard. I guess Enty caught us a break from last Friday's hard ones :)

linnea said...

the.princess.leia - i had never seen that either - LOL!
That said, i am not buying him as #3 yet, but still, its hilarious...

The Bee said...

For #1, what about Olivia Wilde? She's starring in "Year One" opening pretty soon. Did it screen in Cannes? If not, its probably Alison
For #3 I immediately thought Joaquin, but I agree -- does he have it together enough to play golf?

hesaweiner said...

1) Rose McGowen and Robert Rodgriguez

2)Joquin Pheonix

3)Travolta

Jen said...

Hello! I've lurked for months and months. I think you all have nailed quaid and lohman...

Question: I realize where there's smoke, there's fire, but does anyone have concrete proof of Travolta's sexuality? What about the rumor of Kelly having a boy of her own? Wouldn't Travolta have more fame/opportunity if he came out? How can "the church" stay quiet if there is such rampant speculation surrounding Travolta's sexuality? What is the benefit the Travolta's receive from funneling $$$ into Scientology? Silence?

I realize the world runs on one hypocritical treadmill, but these are the lingering qs i have about Travolta. It's not like he's type-cast as a superhero or special agent. He played the lead in Hair for christ sake.

Love love love this site and look forward to posting more!!

J said...

http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/GEbBAWDaaWv/Premiere+Universal+Pictures+Drag+Hell+Arrivals/odoDp0HUVul/Mark+Neveldine

Picture of Alison showing off her engagement ring! He looks like such a creep in his John Deere hat, if the rumor is true I hope she leaves him before she marries him!

Mooshki said...

Leia, that's so funny! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy! LOL

Karen said...

allison lohman is #1

Bad Fish said...

I thought maybe Bruce Willis for #3, 'cause he tries to pretend to be a singer with his lousy band. Although, I don't know that you could call him former A list. Russell Crowe also has a lousy band...

Bad Fish said...

Looking at the other comments tho Dennis seems a realllly great guess. Kevin too. Damnit! lol

shakey said...

Jen, $cios frown upon homosexuality. They frown upon most anything, really - people can't even masturbate.

Having said that, there is some article somewhere (Time magazine, I believe) that was about $cientology and they alluded to Travolta's sexuality. The "church" did not like the article and they took umbrage as to how the "church" was portrayed, they didn't give a good goddamn about Travolta.

There is no benefit for Travolta, or anyone, IMHO. They're brainwashed into giving large amounts of income for something that just doesn't make any sense.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHb0BZyF5Ok
This is Jason Beghe's full interview. It's 2 hours. Well worth the watch.

As for concrete proof of his sexuality - maybe someone on here can say unequivocally he's gay. But things get out, people talk.

Here's a link to the Time article:
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Fishman/time-behar.html

bionic bunny! said...

shakey:
it's also been said that the scios "cure" homosexuality, one of the reasons travolta and cruise joined. at least that's one of the rumors.
so for them to be members, they would have to stay closeted.

anybody else thinking the south park episode??

Too funny, friend of a friend is a masseuse and he got hit on hard by JT. Thought I was in on a secret...
