Blind Items Revealed

June 9, 2009

This Academy Award winner/nominee A list movie actor is also a big music fan. Not so much of other music, but primarily of his own. He also has a huge ego. On a recent movie he was shooting he had it written into his contract that once a week a certain number of crew members had to show up in his hotel suite and listen to our actor play his guitar and the songs he was writing. Most of the songs were about himself and things he had accomplished in his life. Needless to say the crew hated him with a passion. Instead of going home to their families, once a week they had to go to a hotel suite for a few hours and listen to the bag of wind go on and on about great he was. In song.

Russell Crowe

Ugh. That man has not aged well, either.

MontanaMarriott said...

Got this one wrong, never knew RC was a singer either.

shakey said...

LMFAO. Just picturing people being held hostage in a room. Afraid of phones being thrown at him.

Kudos to those who guessed correctly!

lux said...

i think a lot of people guessed this...When we gonna get the real juicy ones?? COKE MOM!!

sunnyside1213 said...

Sad. I used to love this guy.

Nutty_Flavor said...

This made me laugh out loud, too!

*Miss_P* said...

wow
i know a few people guessed RC but I was sure it was Billy-Bob

kelsey said...

bwahahaha YES! so glad this got revealed. it was just so weird. thanks enty!

mngddess said...

I hate that it's him. I really do. I think he's a fantastic actor and from what I've read he's really good with kids. He just needs a 2 x 4 to the head, that's all...

childeroland said...

That's completely nuts.

Babs said...

I was with you, Miss_P - I thought it was Billy Bob, all the way!

sunnyside1213 said...

Wait. Is he still A list?

Marion said...

oh darn - I liked him too, though as Caroline says he hasn't aged well at all. Seems a shame he has to hijack people to listen to his music - that poor crew !

kelsey said...

i would have thought billy bob too... russell crowe seems like a d-bag but not this big. shocking!

the medical bills kindness one is coming up, hope that gets revealed.

robert said...

He's saving his precious time by not having to rent a hall and advertise and get tickets so as to put as much effort into the movie as possible.

That and he wants to protect the essence of his precious bodily fluids too.

Catherine said...

to the tune of Fever...

Now you see that you're my hostage,
and you know that I don't care
While I play my shitty music
It's gonna make you want to rip out your hair...I'm Gladiator!

Mooshki said...

Knew it!!!

Impertinent Vixen said...

I'd rather he just throw telephones and yell.

HookedOnCDAN said...

MontanaMarriott... Russell has (had?) a band called Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts.

The Bee said...

I'm kinda disappointed by all these reveals. Not very good ones. Bummer.

Tikitaz said...

Aaawwwww, Rusty! I love you as an actor but this singing shit is ridiculous! Do a tour or something and get it out of your system. Then stick to what you do best. Sheesh!

Angela said...

I was in the Russell Crowe camp when it was posted. Billy Bob Thornton has big mood swings but as a musician he can play a few songs without being ridiculous and had a few talented guys asking him to sing vocals on their own albums.

Crowe was lambasted by the South Park guys for the musical torture he inflicted on them.

figgy said...

Yeah The Bee, I feel the same way. I thought there'd be more reveals, and more juicy ones. Most of these just fall under the category of "obnoxious behavior," not really exciting.

I was so hoping to read about Coke Mom! ;-) But I suppose that kind of reveal could get Enty in trouble.

...and I know it's none of our business (sigh), but I'd also love some closeted gay reveals!

Cheryl said...

Makin' movies, singin' songs, and fightin' 'round the world

farmgirl said...

This is the greatest.

The Bee said...

i always wanted to know the one about the woman who "tested" her friend's allergy to peanuts by giving her a tainted cookie.

Angela said...

> figgy

Remember that Entertainment Lawyer remains above all... a lawyer. He can imply that some celebrity behaved as a douchebag or was kind, it won't matter much. But outing somebody as gay, unfaithful or revealing drug addictions could get him sued. So he's clever enough to keep these blind items blind.

Besides, we already know that all drugs related blind items are about Lindsay Lohan...

shakey said...

I have developed a theory, and the theory is this - Ent has trained us well. Very well. Most of these BIs were guessed correctly by quite a few. We're getting schmarter.

Let's celebrate that fact rather than hate on the world's greatest blogger.

Mooshki said...

Shakey, I thought that too - we're getting good at this! :)

Apple said...

I have heard a hundred stories about Russell being frustrated about not being a Rock Star. Dude paid for his own documentary on his crap band.

Now I miss the 2000 Gladiator Russel as much as anybody else.

But now he is just a big fat Orson Wells blowhard.

bionic bunny! said...

well, I'M really tired of complainers. if you're disappointed, do something else! enty doesn't have to give us THIS much, you know! :)

Ms.Leigh said...

man, i really thought for sure this was billy bob! i still wouldn't put this past him, heh.

russel is lame for this move tho.

PJ Nelson said...

ROTFLMAO! I didn't guess on this one but man, if the shoe fits...

The Big said...

this is absolutely hilarious! I thought BBT. It destroyed my visual.

I wonder if both genders had to go there or just one. more info please. (C:

figgy said...

Angela, you're right of course. I'm sure Enty would get hunted down if he revealed anything as incendiary as coke mom! ;-)

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I'm complaining...I should have prefaced what I wrote by saying that I LOVE CDAN, and I think Enty is hilarious! It's by far my favorite escapist site. And he's one of the few who does any reveals.

Enty, I *do* appreciate you and CDAN! And the other commenters here are a pleasure to read. :-D

pomme said...

zut! i never thought on him because i saw him in concert several years ago in France and his songs were rock songs about everything except his life!

Sara Bellum said...

Wow. It's like the asshole in college who insists on pulling out his guitar and playing half finished songs, only to a whole new level. Thanks for this.

linnea said...

To me, this is a great reveal! It is funny, it will make me look at Crowe in a (somewhat) different light and it is just so darn weird!

Apple said...

I wonder if this was 3:10 to Yuma, A movie I love btw. But, he was singing in several scenes. Singing pretty badly. You know he had it written in to his contract he would get to sing on screen also.

Would be creat if Christian Bale was forced to listen to his hotel serenades, hhhhm prolly not.

RocketQueen said...

hahahahaha! What a douche.

Jennifer DeVore said...

God lord! Epitome of a narcissist!

Sumoni said...

No surprise. On one of the South Park DVDs, the creators told a hilarious story about Russell Crowe and his Music. His arrogance about it actually created the episode that featured, "Fighting round the world with Russel Crowe." If you want celeb gossip, I'd def listen to the commentary on the South Park DVDS.
