BuzzFoto Blind Item

This celebrity that everyone loves (including many actresses) has been famous for so long, he is out of touch with the real world. He has gotten so used to not talking to ‘regular’ people, he doesn’t know how to do it. During a recent holiday weekend which most of his staff had off, he had some problems with his cable. When the cable man came to the door, our star literally did not know how to communicate with him. He stood at the doorway stammering, and then expected the cable man to know what to do automatically. Finally he got upset, cursed at the man and yelled, “Hold up a minute, I’m not good with people.” He punched a number in his cellphone and had a man on the phone explain to the cable guy what the problem was and what he needed to do.

Not John Mayer.

gerard?
if celeb is single.

melissa said...

Nicholson?

Nikki said...

i have no idea, but how exactly do you "forget" how to talk to "regular people?"

i mean don't you communicate the same way with everyone, you know by opening your mouth and forming words which form sentences?

wtf.

mngddess said...

Nikki, I worked for an electrical engineer who was the department director. He could only speak to people when it came to his specialty. He was incapable of speaking on the phone.

That being said, how is John Mayer a celebrity that everyone loves??

A celebrity that everyone loves is more like Tom Hanks, but Tom is very articulate.

Lady J said...

@Nikki

Exactly.

Maybe Pacino, he seems out of it lately, and has been walking around looking like a HOBO.

Please reveal this one Enty.

weezy said...

Not Pacino -- he's a Method actor and a mensch. He'd invite the guy in, chat with him, follow him around, assess his behaviors and bond with him for future roles.

I love this BI, though. It's so much better than the one about that slob Noth below. BTW, Noth's babymamma had been with him for a long time and knew exactly what she was getting into.

Many entertainers suffer from bouts of depression when they are not engaged in a project. I have also thought Pacino was this way, but he's such a left field kind of guy.

Jamie's Girl said...

Asperger's People have trouble with this. But I don't know of any actor that is autistic or has Aspergers.

Monica said...

Oh Enty, please let this be revealed!

Honestly though, this doesn't surprise me too much. I mean, it's not like the guy did anything wrong per se. At least not compared to the other blinds.

I'm just super curious to see who it is. Please reveal???

looserdude said...

I kind of agree with the folks above who think the celeb in this case has some sort of personality disorder that is masked by the fact that he is surrounded by handlers most of the time. Probably a lot more serious than a case of "big head".

nancer said...

it doesn't say this guy's an actor. and the 'not john mayer' suggests to me it's not.

but just as an aside, nicholson is horrible in interviews. he's the most inarticulate person i've ever seen. he just is a horrible interview subject. i think some really good actors are like that---they're just vague real people, and find a 'self' in their roles.

have no idea who this is.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

This is a Buzzfoto blind, not one of ENTy's, it won't be revealed unless Buzzfoto reveals it.

That said, I would love to know who it is.

Sylvia said...

Reminds me of people that I know that have PH.D's LOL.

delilah said...

not Beatty-talked to him last year with Annette at event and totally down to earth

sunnyside1213 said...

Dang...no reveal on this one.

Mooshki said...

Sylvia, I know, right? I still remember having to explain to a Ph.D. at my job how to put a stamp on a letter to mail it.

Mooshki said...

And hey, couldn't Enty give us his "guess" for the blinds that aren't his? I bet he has a pretty good idea who most of these are.

sunnyside1213 said...

Blind Gossip always knows the answer. So Mooshki, I think you are probably right about this.

Diane said...

There is a clue here: "This celebrity that everyone loves"...don't think so BUT Ray Romano?

janele said...

Someone on Gawker guessed Woody Allen. I like that guess, except that I would think he would have his daughter-wife talk to the cable guy.

kathrynnova said...

it is very difficult to be good with people. some people are just lousy - no matter if they are "regular" or "sublime".

i have a hard time with people and especially technology related things. this could be anyone and is not too shocking. if anything i feel bad for the guy - i know how frustrating it is. and i am no celebrity.

L said...

Russell Brand. Celebrity on different levels (comic, actor, etc.), big reputation as a playboy, and from the looks of him a heavy drug user which wouldn't help with communication.

SkittleKitty said...

I think "Celebrity" and "John Mayer" are clues that point to a non-actor. More likely another rocker who is loved but dates a lot of actresses.
That said, I have no guesses.

valerie said...

George Clooney?

I like the Woody Allen guess more, though.

RocketQueen said...

Julio Iglesias?

pomme said...

prince?

pomme said...

jim carrey? he was in "the cable guy"

JW said...

Oh, I like the Prince guess.

Danielle said...

My first thought was Jack Nicholson because of the "many actresses love him" comment but then I remembered reading a blind about Alec Baldwin that he literally is never around "regular people" so there for as no idea how to talk to them. So I think I'll go with Baldwin (Alec) even though I don't think there are many actresses who like him at all lol.

Judy said...

richie sambora (dated actresses, popular, musician like john mayer)

Joanna said...

I was thinking Jim Carrey too. He has dated many actresses (Lauren Holly, Squinty Z, Jenny McCarthy).

sunnyside1213 said...

I like the Jim Carrey guess. I think he is batshit crazy.

Niktini said...

Jack Nicholson?

weezy said...

The Carrey guess is really good.

weezy said...

The Carrey guess is really good.

xoApril said...

Timberlake?
Been with Milano, Diaz, Biel.
Same league as Mayer

cricket said...

Carey is a really good guess. He's always been a little strange and he's dated lots of actresses

Char said...

Maybe he was just high.

timebob said...

I like the Prince guess. He won't even speak to other movie or rock stars.

My other guess would be Rod Stewart.

Tenley said...

OMG I can't imagine it being Carrey -- I mean the guy came from working class and on top of that one thing the guy can do is communicate. Off the wall, sure. But whatever it is he wants to get across, he can get across. (And he WAS the Cable Guy, I mean, come on.) I'm thinking it's someone more like -- I don't know, Brad Pitt? (In a foreign country literally not able to communicate to the cable guy? I don't know. I just think it's someone smoother than Carrey who you're not expecting.)

J said...

Alex Rodriguez?

MCH said...

So he can communicate with other celebs but not regular people??? Sounds like some kind of disorder. And agreed, Nikki - WTF

jax said...

i'd go with timberlake if it said that he called his mommy like on Punk'd.

Mooshki said...

Prince is a GREAT guess. I can totally see this being him.

Mooshki said...

(I went to high school with his half-brother, and he said Prince never visited him or their mom, and one of my teachers taught him in high school and said he spent all his time playing instruments [he played over 20 of them!] instead of with his classmates.)

sunnyside1213 said...

My cousin worked a as roadie for some big acts and did a very short stint with Prince. Said he was a complete a hole.

Melody the First said...

Pacino is a very personable guy. Very easy to talk to.

I have no idea who it is (how about Christopher Walken?), but I know people in all walks of life who are like this. The director Dan Curtis' wife used to call his office to have his writing staff call and order pizza for her. lol

anita_mark said...

I know it's not based on the "actresses love him" but after reading Rolling Stone's interview with Jay-Z, I'd almost think it was him. Someone puts his shoes on for him!!!!

I could see a Chappelle Show sketch of Prince dealing with ordinary day to day activities. That would be hilarious.

john said...

Not Alec Baldwin. He works out at the gym I work at and he couldn't be nicer and more chatty to the clients. Not out of touch with people at all.
