Blind Items Revealed

July 3, 2009

#1 - This A+ list Academy Award winner/nominee actress spent some two weeks ago at a Veteran's hospital. She did so quietly and without publicity. She spent time with every patient she could and when she left, she gave them all gift bags which included a $1000 gift certificate to Best Buy.

#2 This A+ list Academy Award winner/nominee actor also spent time with the troops at the same hospital. He didn't being gift bags but did stay for many hours and visited with everyone there and shared stories and listened and also didn't want any publicity for being there.

#1 - Angelina Jolie
#2 - Jack Nicholson

Cheri said...

Many had Angelina right but I don't think anyone mentioned Jack! Good for them. Vets should be honoured.

shazzzba said...

OK...IT'S ANGIE

BUT JACK...I LOVE JACK, BUT IT'S STILL A SURPRISE.

MontanaMarriott said...

Wow, even drug addicted celebrities have their kind moments! Who knew!?

Cecilia00 said...

Nicholson surprises me.

Is this it for the blind reveals or does Enty throw some out of sequence ones in?

dollface said...

Go Angelina. I have to respect someone who lives what they preach.

AMD said...

That whore actually did something without publicity?! What, the city's orphanages weren't having a sale?

Mooshki said...

I would never have guessed Jack. Good for him!

Quintessential Southerner said...

hahaha, MM.

farmgirl said...

Yay! Angie redeemed. I love her soooo much.

And Jack - what a surprise. I am glad to see he is using his fame for good.

not on my dollar said...

You guys got the first part right. Congrats!


Nice to know that Jack can be kind too.

Paisley said...

Good for both of them. I think Emily was the only one to correctly guess Jack.

MontanaMarriott said...

LOL, okay so I believe this one being yesterday's date that this is it?

chcj4 said...

Color me surprised! Angelina, i know she does lots of charitable things, but with all those kids, it's still surprising. Good 4 her. Jack, wow. Very surprising. Good for him too!

Harriet Hellfire said...

Ooh, a surprise! Nice!

amazonblue said...

Wow, kudos to both of them for taking the time and foregoing the publicity.

Kimberly said...

I'm impressed by them both. Angelina was obvious, but not Jack.

I do find it interesting that for some of you, Angelina can do no right. Boosting veterans' spirits and giving them gift certificates isn't enough? You'd think that Brad Pitt was your ex-husband :-)

Btw, I'm not on either "team". I just like to give credit where it's due.

Jessica said...

Yah! I knew this one without a doubt. I saw the pictures on someone's personal facebook page. Not everything she does is for publicity. She's got a really kind heart.

Jack never crossed my mind but that was a wonderful gesture on his part. Go Jack.

~BellaBellaBoo~ said...

Yay, Angelina and Jack!

I know a lot of folks hate Angelina for one reason or another, but I really like her and always have.

libby said...

Yes, I know it's not a popular stance, but I love Angelina. I admit it. She could be just be living off her looks and spend the rest of her days on the couch, but she doesn't. Even if she IS a famewhore, at least she sets a good example to her fans.

The other day, somebody wondered why she would choose Best Buy. Because what young adult can't have fun with $1000 at Best Buy? And, as someone else mentioned first, the patients spend so much time in bed that electronics are an important distraction.

I think Jack would be a blast to get drunk with, and listen to his stories! Wow!

bionic bunny! said...

i had no problem seeing best buy, that's where "normal" people shop. that was a good call, whoever came up with the idea.
i still have a hard time believing she would do it without publicity, or at the very least, escaping the paps.

i wouldn't have guessed jack, but i totally see it. jack's cool.

sunnyside1213 said...

Jack is scary looking, but I would love to spend a hour or so talking to him about 5 Easy Pieces. Great movie.

Good for them both. I think it was super sensitive of AJ to pick Best Buy. If you have ever been bedridden, you would understand immediately.

Apple said...

This was the greatest day ever. Lots of surprises and some validated what I thought would be the answer.

Also, was able to go back and read reveals I had missed for being a newbie and Timmy/Shimmy WOW.

PJ Nelson said...

Thank you for revealing this one... I was in agreement with the AJ guesses but would have never guessed Jack Nicholson.

Karmen said...

Snap. Guess i'd best stop sipping on my haterade and give St Angie credit. Kudos.

PollyPureBred said...

Yaaay! Fabulous way to end the day. Thanks Enty, and Happy 4th to all!

The Big said...

I bet Jack will bring gifts next time. prob tequila! It would be lame to get publicity for this.

JJ said...

I would gladly exchange two Best Buy gift certificates for a chance to sit down and hear Jack stories. I'd love to know the details of his Laura Flynn Boyle relationship.

I'm sure he gave those veterans a great afternoon.

Emily said...

EEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!

I got Jack Nicholson right!! (Yes, you can check and see for yourself on the original!). This is a first and I'm going revel in it.

Oh - and the reveals rocked, not just because of this last one.

(Just wish Enty had revealed the wasted director behind the strange adventure in Poland that he posted in May.)

Robert said...

Jolie and Nicholson both deserve a lot of credit for this (as do many of the other celebrities who appear as "kindnesses" on today's posts). And thanks to Enty for another great day of blind item reveals.

fairylights said...

Wow, Angie I could see, but Jack never even crossed my mind! How wonderful of them both to be so kind.

lapin said...

Gods bless them both for their kindness.

And colour me surprised. I so totally guessed others?

pomme said...

never tought!

Miss said...

Team Angie all day every day!

Nutty_Flavor said...

A great way to end the reveals. This makes me feel really happy!

Chantelle said...

Yay! I'm so glad it turned out to be Angie since so many of the naysayers think she only does charity for publicity.

linnea said...

Chantelle, me too!

Barton Fink said...

As a naysayer, I officially will take a week off from making fun of her. But did you see her crackhouse video, where she went on about how wonderful S&M was?

Mika said...

Barton Fink, I was disappointed with the "crack head" video because there was no crack or any other drugs being used... on the video. I don't remember the S &M but I do remember her talking about giving costumes or something to sick kids in the hospital. LoL she has talked about s&m in some of her interviews though. ;)

Barton Fink said...

The girl next to her is getting high, and she's buzzing hard and can't stop rubbing her lips --

Without some type of therapy, it's very hard to stop cocaine and heroin and meth use, they say. I'm just saying.

LoL I totally didn't realize the chick next to her was getting high. That doesn't surprise me because in one or two of her past interviews she admits to using drugs and to knowing addiction < whatever that means. She's been pretty honest about it. what I did find surprising was that in the crack video she's talking about how she wants to help people. lol I agree... drug use is hard to stop but that doesn't mean she hasn't found a way. I think her heart is in the right place as far as her charity work goes. I am biased though... one of the only things I don't like about Angelina is Brad Pitt. LoL

Barton Fink said...

I actually have to pray sometimes that I will get over my negativity and look upon her as a good person -- I mean, she does do good work, she promotes UN peace and child welfare causes, and I was a druggy worse than anyone I've ever met (except people at my NA meetings), so I've got no room to judge.

Plus, she is often quite beautiful.

There. I've said good things about her! Now I can sleep with a clean conscience.

jas said...

I admire courage, and I think that even with all her faults, Angie has shown courage with things such as her work with the UN. Jack seems to be someone trapped by an image of himself that has faded in time, (especially evident on boats in the Mediterranean). But hey, they did a great thing doing what they did. I gotta hand it to them. I also admit that these kinds of acts are deeper, more personal acts of support, for our service men and women, then just doing free concerts overseas. The fact that they didn't want any publicity for their acts at the hospital, only makes it more so.

I just wish that we would see some A list celebrity somewhere, REALLY support our service men and women, and take a stand of courage to speak out against our military being so grossly misused, in order to occupy a sovereign nation, based on claims of weapons of mass destruction, proven as lies long ago.

BTW, I recently saw the documentary "FTA", which featured Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland and others who formed a political troupe which traveled to towns near military bases, in the early 1970s, and put on a variety show of skits and songs aimed at convincing soldiers to voice their opposition to the Vietnam War, which was raging at the time. Now THAT took courage..

empyrios said...

oh to be a fly on the wall while Jack is telling stories....

RocketQueen said...

Yay Angie - I'm another one that has always liked her.

Essie said...

The story (with pictures) of Angelina at the VA hospital in DC has been on several blogs for about two weeks now. The pictures and story were told by the wife of one of the injured men. She said Angie stayed and talked with each man for about 15-20 minutes at a time and was very sweet. I can't understand why some people would be surprised by this. Angelina is a good person and has been for a long time. Forget about her past. She is way beyond that. People do grow up, you know!!

Simone said...

Thanks for confirming that my favorite Hollywood gal is a true sweetheart.
