Today's Blind Items

While shooting on the set of their latest movie, these two stars have a completely different way of interacting with their fans. Well, I should say one interacts with fans, and one pretends she cannot see or hear them. Our B+ list movie actor usually plays the fun guy and it seems that when he is filming it is the exact same way. He spends most of the time in between takes speaking with fans, taking pictures and talking the entire time. Our A+ list actress on the other hand spends her time in between takes as far away from the fans as possible and has absolutely nothing to do with them. She is very good at pretending not to hear them or see them.

Paul Rudd and Reese Witherspoon?

Cheryl said...

Paul Rudd and Reese Witherspoon!

*Miss_P* said...

just a guess - sandra bullock & ryan reynolds?

Cheryl said...

Yeah Booster Seat, this screams them and they are filming together.

MontanaMarriott said...

I think you are right BS but just to throw another name in the mix John Krasinski and Meryl Streep

Stephen said...

Shia & Megan...she did ignore the kid with the rose.

Jungle007 said...

Goopy and Robert Downey Jr??

Dr. Spaceman said...

Yeah, Rudd and Witherspoon sound good.

I love Paul Rudd. I want to do him. Just thought I'd share.

Idiot Watcher said...

Megan is NOT A+! (Although I totally thought this was Shia and Megan until I saw the A+!)

Jungle007 said...

stephen- NO WAY is megan fox A+ list. I thought of them too but that part nullified it.

Jungle007 said...

Ahaha Idiot Watcher you beat me to it by a split second!!!

jax said...

who was pictured yesterday with Jen Aniston?? Liev Shrieber? anyway she looked miserable and like she hated the guts of the guy. damnit. made me think of the BI about the actress that got told off by her costar.

Gerard Butler!!

Always Second Guessing said...

Ryan Reynolds & Sandra Bullock for SURE -- I don't consider Paul Rudd B+, isn't he A now?

RocketQueen said...

Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth!

Jungle007 said...

ohhhh looking at the comment on Jason patric's photo below makes me think maybe it's him and Cameron diaz. Is she a+?

nancer said...

i've met sandra bullock. she's as nice and personable as she can be---. i really can't imagine her acting like that so i say it is NOT her.

oh, and i also don't consider her A+.

reese, i guess, would be since she's won an oscar.

selenakyle said...

Reese and whoever the guy is in her new softball movie. Just saw a pic of them yesterday and looked like deep down she hates him, too (along with all the other actors she's hated who've been in her moves).

selenakyle said...

Oh yeah--Paul Rudd! I'll bet he's as sweet as can be IRL.

Reese is prolly as sour as can be.

Paisley said...

I can't criticize the actress too much. Depending on her working style, she might need to stay in character in between takes. It's not that easy for some of them to snap in and out of character. My brother worked on a soap for awhile (crew member) and said it was about 50/50 for those who could joke around and perform two minutes later and those who couldn't.

Saoirse said...

First time poster, long time fan.

Saw Gerard Butler on Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn last Wednesday filming the new Jen Aniston flick "Bounty". Walked right by him while he was taking pictures with the fans, but everyone said Aniston was nowhere to be seen, except when it was time for her shot.

Would've stopped for a snap myself had I not been DESPERATE to get to bathroom ASAP. Damned IBS!

ElsieFire said...

Am I reading too much into it when Enty says "While shooting on the set of their latest movie, these two stars HAVE a..."

So, I go for Reese and Paul, based on that logic. And the sourpuss photos I've seen of her lately taken by the paps.

cricket said...

Aaron Eckhardt and Nicole Kidman. They're filming Rabbit Hole.

Brett said...

Reese and Paul for sure.

palealebrew10 said...

MOST definitely rudd and witherspoon. Reese has been sporting that bitchface overtime. she is definitely not a sweetheart. I can't believe I used to really love her.

The pictures of them on set is the reveal to this blind lol

Kathryn said...

Not to excuse the actress, since it's fans that make her famous, but if everywhere you go, people are looking at you and trying to get your attention, tuning them out can become a defense mechanism just to get through your day. Depending on the person, that's not something you can turn on and off easily.

I know because I used to live in a country where being very tall and very pale-skinned white made me stand out and be the center of attention almost everywhere I went, and while it can be fun for a while, it gets really old. I've gotten so I can walk down a crowded street where everybody's looking at me and can pretend like nobody else exists, just because if I didn't do it, all of the attention would make me go nuts.

maggiemei said...

I was going to say Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams, because they are the only ones i could remember were filming currently.

But the Reese/Paul guess is much better.

diatribes and dish said...

Reese & Paul fo sho.

AnnMarie said...

I'm with the Reese W. and Paul Rudd guess. He seems like such a doll, and she...well, she doesn't.
I understand how actors do like/need to stay in character offscreen sometimes, but I'm assuming (let me know if I'm wrong) that it's a comedy, and not demanding that specific kind of preparation.

Idiot Watcher said...

I don't think Bullock, Kidman or even Aniston would qualify as A+, at least not anymore. A list for Aniston, maybe Kidman (although she's kind of fallen off the map). B+ probably for Bullock. I think Reese and Paul Rudd fit best. Now, ask me where I'd like to fit Paul Rudd... ;-)

Jill said...

I agree, the wording imply's the movie is currently filming, so Sandra, Cameron, and Megan can't be it.

I think Aniston fits, but Gerard Butler isn't really the actor that usually plays "the fun guy."

I am on the Reese and Paul bandwagon:)

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

Throwing another pair of names out there...

Liev Schreiber and St. Brangelina. I believe they just finished shooting "Salt", no?

Liev COULD be considered a B+... he's well-regarded and has a celebrity wife, etc...

david said...

Rudd and Whitherspoon. hands down. 100%.

Barton Fink said...

I gotta say, I think the whole "talking with fans" thing is overrated. While it looks like fun and games, acting can be difficult for some people. Getting into character isn't easy, and blocking out everything in order to make the scene work involves (for some actors) a complete cocoon of focus. For others, more gregarious, it's just showing up and saying lines. I'm inclined to give an actor a free pass on her or his approachability between takes.

DNfromMN said...

I'm with Saorise - Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston.

Majik said...

Agree w/ RDJ and Goopy....she's automatic A+ with the oscar, and he's def B+ with oscar noms and hit movies....both currently filming Iron Man 2, I believe, at least they were within the last couple of weeks.

Sylvia said...

LOL @ Dr. Spaceman

empyrios said...

it says movie actor and Rudd has done television...just sayin'

although owen wilson is in that movie too so it could be reese and owen. he only does movies and he usually plays the "fun guy" as stated.

lux said...

enty doesn't consider Aniston an A+ actress though.

I'm on the reese train, I instantly thought of her.

jax said...

i'm sticking with my first guess of Jen A and Gerard.

saw pics of reese and paul rudd a few time son set and they are laughing and having fun.

nancer said...

tmz is reporting michael jackson suffered a cardiac arrest and is in 'really bad shape'. anyone reading anything??

Angela said...

I don't think that somebody who tried to commit suicide would still be called a "fun guy" on the set.

Paul Rudd has done some TV, as a guest star especially on "Friends", but he's mostly a movie actor. B+ would fit him perfectly. He can't open a movie on his own ("Role Models" had Sean William Scott as a co-star, "I Love You Man" Jason Segel) but he definitely brings something to an ensemble and he was in LOTS of sleeper hits.

empyrios said...

i said he ususally PLAYS the fun guy, as the post says.

thanks.

JudyPatooty said...

My vote goes to Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler.

Everything I've ever read about GB is that he's very open, gregarious and friendly to fans. He's also known to be a very funny guy.

Stephani said...

I know this is too old to be the answer to this blind... Anyway, four years ago a scene from The Break-up was being filmed out in the plaza outside my office building, and, of course, we stalked the set on our break.

We found Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston taking a break together under a canopy. Vince couldn't have been friendlier -- he talked about the film, answered questions, etc. Meanwhile Jen, who was sitting right next to him, completely ignored us! Even when someone called out her name. (We weren't the only ones stalking the set, lol). This was also when they were "dating." They didn't look too friendly to me.

BinkyM said...

@lux: I don't see how Janniston could possibly be A+, or even A-, for that matter; that girl has such a string of stink-ass movies in her resume, I'd be surprised if she's above a B. (Has anyone here heard of "Management," let alone seen it? So many of her movies just blow right by without anyone noticing.) And if anyone notices her movies, it's because they're just plain awful. "Marley and Me" is the obvious exception, of course, but try to name another exception. It's always terrible, horrible stuff like "Rumor Has It," "Friends with Money," "Along Came Polly," and other shitty stuff no one sees (though I admit to seeing all of it because I'll watch nearly anything on cable). Holy crap; she has a talent for picking the worst scripts that rivals Halle Berry's.

And the box office from all this stuff you've never heard of? It doesn't equal half the P&A of "Marley and Me," so I can't see how she's any higher than a B. And "Marley" probably got her UP to a B.

Goodgrief said...

I just heard Michael Jackson had a heart attack. The report said he was not breathing when the paramedics arrived. i just saw it on the news.

TinselSass said...

RE: palealebrew10...

Reese has been sporting that bitchface overtime. she is definitely not a sweetheart. I can't believe I used to really love her.

I totally agree.

Enty, please get scoop on whether or not she really is Jake's beard... that would explain her permanent scowl.

nancer said...

i just posted that GG. it's starting to hit all the sites now.

as for the guesses here, READ THE BLIND!!! it's not aniston. she's barely B, let alone A+.

nancer said...

tmz says michael jackson is DEAD.

jw12 said...

GG- TMZ is reporting he's dead.

TinselSass said...

Breaking news... Michael Jackson dies:

http://www.tmz.com/

AnonMom said...

Michael Jackson ... OMG, I can't believe it.

GoddessNow said...

I am soo sad...Damn Mike

BinkyM said...

Oh, how I hope his children are raised by someone outside his family! There's still hope those kids can have normal lives! (crossing fingers)

Karmen said...

Love Paul Rudd. LOVE HIM! Mmhmmmmmm.

Lauren said...

Reese and Rudd ftw. Plus if it was Ryan Reynolds Enty would say something about how he doesn't like the actor. Enty is not a fan of RR.

Resse is def A+ as many noted with her Oscar win.

Do a lot of peeps ready lainey as well? I saw one of lainey's favorite words "bitchface" thrown around a lot. . .

i am a princess, yes i am said...

oooohhhhh oooohhhh i know!! Reese and ummm some guy she's filming with. God who is it??? Shit they're in DC...Don't remember who it is

Sorry if I totally am stating the obvious, I didn't read any of the guesses b/c I am so excited to know this one.

i am a princess, yes i am said...

ah duh Paul Rudd!

Saoirse said...

CNN is saying that Michael Jackson is in a coma.

Cancan said...

There are very few A+ actresses, I think: Reese, Angelina, Cameron Diaz, Jodie Foster and Julia Roberts. Possibly also Nicole Kidman, depending on how you define A+ (she has critical success, makes big money, but very poor return on investment for producers.) Aniston A+? GTFO. Sandra Bullock? Maybe 5 years ago.

Saoirse said...

Yeah, the A+ rating would have to take Jen out of the running. But it was just so weird to have walked through a very similar scenario just last week.

Funny Girl said...

immediately thought of Jennifer Anniston and Gerard Butler

SarCraw said...

Jennifer Aniston is definitely A list, I don't know about Ent's criteria but she won an Emmy, was married to Brad Pitt and has had two very successful movies in the last year, even if one was an ensemble.

I think this is obviously Reese and Paul, lots of pap pictures of Reese looking very PO'd and alone in between takes.

shazzzba said...

BUTLER AND ANISTON....I'VE READ HE ALWAYS REACHES OUT WHEN ON BREAKS ON LOCATION FILMING...

nunaurbiz said...

This is SO Gerry and Jen! Gerry loves to meet fans.

Wish it were Aaron and Nicole, but I saw Aaron on the set of "The Rum Diary" and while he acknowledged my greeting to him, he didn't come over and say hi. :-)

Still love him tho! Love Gerry too!

Quintessential Southerner said...

but is jennifer anniston "A+" list?

Marion said...

I think Reese and Rudd - the pics of Reese on Lainey's site showed major bitchface this week - boy did she look owly !!!

Judi said...

Again, Enty doesn't give Anniston the A+ designation. In every film, she always plays the same role. For me, I guess she's A-/B+. I think her behavior toward fans fits but don't think this is her.
Rudd and Reese.

Bxrlvr said...

First thing I thought of too - Reese and Paul Rudd.

LauraM said...

Yup, Paul and Reese.

Lissette said...

Hm....I was thinking about Reese and Rudd, however, he doesn't usually play fun guy in his movies, he seems nice and approachable, but his private life is pretty private. When I reread the blind, I saw "on the set of THEIR LATEST MOVIE". It made me think they've worked together before. RDJ usually "plays the funny" and, it's been documented, he jokes around with the paps, etc. offscreen as well. Meanwhile, the Goopster is A+ (having won an Oscar and being of Hollywood royalty to boot) can't even see that not everyone has the GOOP lifestyle, so her not "hearing" them doesn't shock me. She's out of touch, and only gives what she wants, when she wants, how she wants.

B626 said...

Ryan/Sandy

nancer said...

sandra bullock is not A+.

MT said...

Paul and Reese (Owen and Jack, too) have been filming here in DC. Paul has been amazing and hanged out in the bar a few nights ago after shooting. Reese kind-of was just whisked away. Considering I've seen with my own eyes how they've react to the fans/onlookers, I'll say those two. :)

Miss said...

Reese is pissed she's a beard and the last to admit it!

Rolf said...

I have to agree with Stephen: Shia & Megan...she did ignore the kid with the rose.

kas said...

who is jack black filming with? the actors above do not exactly play "fun" characters.

beanie said...

Love love love Paul Rudd. So sweet. This article made me cry: http://men.style.com/gq/features/landing?id=content_8977

muccimooch333 said...

There is NO WAY that Jennifer Aniston is A+ list. NO WAY!

Is Julia Roberts filming anything right now? Julia was my first reaction when I read this blind. You could land an airplane in her nostrils.

Angie said...

Jen and gerard were the 1st ones I thought of.

captivagrl said...

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen

Marisa said...

On the Paul Rudd and Reese W bandwagon. My friend (WHO COMMENTS ON HERE - GIRL WHERE ARE YOU?) has been bragging to me that they are filming on her street this whole week and her roomate has my MY MAN twice and he rocks. Bitch.

Marisa said...

*met my man. As in met Paul Rudd. As in bitch.

jazzence said...

Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart

Aileen said...

i'm gonna guess Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper. They're in Case 39 together and starting to trump it around. You don't really see Renee around a whole lot, and Bradley seems to fit the fun guy persona.

buuut Paul Rudd and Reese Witherspoon sounds a bit more believable.
