Blind Items Revealed

Friday, October 9, 2009

# 3 - Kindness - This C list movie and television actress has a movie world record all to herself. She is also married to an Oscar nominee/winner writer. Anyway, our actress, who has children was at her children's doctor when she started talking to a woman who had three kids of her own, one of which had bone cancer. The woman didn't have insurance and was having a tough time paying the doctor bills. Long story short. Our actress hosted a fundraiser with her husband and raised $100,000 to pay for all the medical bills for the child and to give the family a much needed vacation.

I'm saddened that I do not know who she is.

Kingrey said...

This is awesome. The world needs more people like this.

DNfromMN said...

I had to look her up, here's the IMDb link for anyone else.

That was a pretty awesome thing to do.

IrishGossip said...

I was hpping this would be revealed. Great thing to do.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'm unfamiliar with her, too, but I salute her for her generosity and heart.

Kingrey said...

What's the world record, btw?

Erin said...

This one makes me warm and fuzzy inside. What a wonderful couple.

Kat said...

Like others, I also have no clue who she is, but I'm going to look her up now, that's for sure!

Carissa said...

Finally, a chance to see that there are some people out in Hollywood who are generous with their blessings and kind at heart.

If it is the same Rachel Roberts I had to IMDB (above), then her mother died of breast cancer, so she must be sympathetic to say the least.

Very nice to read the kindness reveals after all the Ashlee Sunshine Simpson et al rot.

Dulcinea said...

I don't know who she is either but I am going to look her up and make a point to see her next movie. This is fantastic.

Kat said...

Ah, I remember 'Simone' now. Thanks for the link DNfromMN!

Kelli said...

So - is this super-old? Rachel Roberts died in 1980 acoording to IMDB.

genesis said...

She has my respect.

Carrie said...

Record - would that be not being credited for S1m0ne, do you think?

Kelli said...

My fault - I had the wrong Rachel Roberts.

Apple said...

holds the record for most screen-time given to an uncredited actress (for Simone)

angie said...

Great blind....love the reveals on a freezing NY day....starting my first glass of wine...Happy NY to everyone!

frausimon said...

@Carrie, yes, the record is for most screen time in a movie in an uncredited role...

whole lotto luv said...

Kingrey: "Her role in S1m0ne (2002) was the most screen time ever given to an uncredited role."

Apple said...

I vaguely rememger this movie, they markted like Simone was a computer generated image that it wasn't a real person. They tried to keep Rachel a secret. She couldn't even be on set using her real name.

Katja said...

While I love that she was so kind, I hate that there was a need for it in the first place. I hope the kiddo recovered...

Katja said...

I also dispise the fact that Cancer drugs/treatments are the highest profit things the drug companies/insurance companies have. That is really terrible.

Melody said...

The money is in the medicine and not in the cure. This does not make it right, but it's corp amer we're dealing with.

Tea Lady said...

Kelli, you were looking at the wrong Rachel Roberts. The one in this reveal shows up in IMDB as Rachel Roberts (III).

That said, you go Rachel! I didn't know her either because she's mostly been a model, but I love the kindness reveals.

Dr. Spaceman said...

I absolutely love stories like this. The kindness reveals always make me so happy.

And agree with everyone else who said they hope the child and family are doing ok.

pomme said...

great! nice! sweet!

mouth.like.a.sailor said...

that is really beautiful. it's really nice to hear of people using their power and wealth and connections to help others. that's fantastic. sick children make me so sad, it's tragic. those saint jude commercials make me cry.

the winner is:


beth said...
1/2. I'm inclined to guess Michael Cera and Kit Culkin (Kieran's dad), but it says actress.

3. Rachel Roberts (married to Andrew Niccol, nominated for The Truman Show) According to IMDB, her role in S1m0ne (2002) was the most screen time ever given to an uncredited role.

4. Kristin Kreuk (filing Ben Hur with Ray Winstone)

GOOD JOB!!! that was a hard one!

annie cat said...

Wow that's so amazing and kind of Rachel... Thanks for this reveal!

shakey said...

Good for both her and her husband to do this. May karma be kind to them.

Melody, my father has long stated that the cure for cancer has been found, but it will never be revealed because of all the money being made off of it.
