Today's Blind Items - Kindness

I had no idea this youngish B list movie actress who has been in one movie after the other for the past year was so nice. Every day she is in town our actress goes to a coffee shop close to where she lives. Everyday she would see the same homeless man there asking for money. One day some guy kicked his cup and our actress stopped to help him pick up the change and they got to talking. From then on they would talk for a minute or two and she would give him a few dollars. She then heard his story and how he had ended up on the streets. Well, after about a month of this, our actress got him a job in the mail room of her agent, found him a place to live and gave him enough money to pay for his expenses for a few months while he was getting on his feet.

chopchop said...

I thought of Amanda Seyfried too. Good for you, whoever you are!

Mooshki said...

I like your guesses, MM. Can't wait for the reveal on this one! Only a few more weeks! :)

Miss Bitch said...

My first thought was Amanda Seyfried, but she seems so bitchy in her interviews.

MontanaMarriott said...

Thanks,
Me too Mooshki, I LOVE REVEAL DAY, I always take my laptop with me no matter where I am and disappear from whomever I am with at the time until all the reveals are shown, lolololol

Stacy said...

Carey Mulligan

Reese said...

Can't think of anyone working as much as Amanda Seyfried these days. Wouldn't have thought she was that nice either.

not on my dollar said...

I have no idea but can't wait for this reveal. We need more kindness blinds. They just make my day.

Monalicious said...

I have no idea who this is....


Whoever she is (and I hope it's revealed!!!) bless her!!! What a kind, loving soul.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Amanda Seyfried is a good guess but is she "youngish"? To me, she's young period.

Or maybe I'm old...*L*

RocketQueen said...

Kristen Bell?

Dana said...

Amanda Seyfried was my first guess, too.

RJ said...

Amanda Seyfried has been in lots of movies lately, but I wouldn't say that she would be described as "youngish". I'd say she's definitely young. To me "youngish" is someone around 30 give or take a few years. Who ever it is, I can't wait until the reveals to find out. Hope things work out for that guy.

Ells said...

what about Ginnifer Goodwin (I don't know how to spell her name)? Hasn't she been in several movies this past year? or one of the Twilight girls?

chihuahuense said...

good for her! I can't wait for reveals either!!!! YAYAYAYAYAY!

fireflies said...

Anna Kendrick?

RJ said...

Oooh. I like the Kristen Bell guess, and she probably fits the "youngish" category better than Seyfried. Plus, she's been in nice items before.

Jess said...

Kristen Bell was my thought as well, she's nearly 30( i think) but looks younger.

Tenley said...

Amanda Seyfried was in Mean Girls, which came out the better part of a decade ago. I mean it had not only Lilo in it but that Lacy gal who was in Party of Five. So Seyfried technically could still be very young, though she almost has to be at least mid-20s, yet having been in big movies for that long (even if she did start really taking off in the past year or so)makes it hard for me to consider her flat-out "young" in the business.

Alanna said...

Seyfried and Bell both had successful TV careers before transitioning to movies. Enty usually mentions TV if the person has done more than a couple of walk-ons. Plus, "in town" sounds like the person doesn't permanently live in L.A. So I like the Mulligan guess.

Nikki said...

immediately thought of amanda s as well. she's from a small town in PA close to where i grew up and is supposedly super sweet and friendly.

Lori said...

Malin Ackerman?

Bitzi said...

Rachel McAdams. She walks a lot and takes public transport so would see people on the street more. She just seems sweet.

Mary said...

Mid-20s is youngish to me. If Ent called her young, I'd be thinking the under 21 crowd like Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart.

I'll go with Amanda Seyfried.

selenakyle said...

AWESOME!!!

We do expect a reveal on this one, Enty, thanks!

Some of the stories of street people will just break your heart.

Some are just plain crazy, and you can't lock up crazy unless they are a danger to themselves or others. Sad.

This one must've just had a hard-luck situation.

Good going, girl!

sunnyside1213 said...

My first thought was Amanda.

sunnyside1213 said...

Way OT, but just saw this. David Hasselhoff returns to 'The Young and the Restless' as the Snapper. I remember when he was on that show and he was hot.

Sierra said...

I love the Zoe Saldana guess. She's 32 youngish back to back movies Star trek, Skeptic and Avatar all from 2009

iheartjacksparrow said...

Dakota Fanning. I've met her and she is really sweet.

Melinda said...

I'm going with Kristen Stewart on this one.

Melinda said...

Forget that - Kristen Stewart isn't 'youngish'. She's practically a toddler.

Hordaz1_01 said...

Emma Stone

Laura said...

Amy Adams

Mrs.M5 said...

i'm glad i'm not the only one who guesses Dakota Fanning

CaliGirlinVA said...

I'm guessing Amanda. She has been in movie after movie recently. Whoever it is, this is great!

OT: This week was the 25th anniversary of Goonies! They did a celebration in Oregon and everything...The video is up on YouTube. And we don't have any pics here!! (or did I completely miss 'em?). Love, Love,love the Goonies!!

Icecat said...

I absolutely LOVE the Zoe guess. I honestly don't know anything about Amanda, but it just dosen't sound like her.

Zoe FTW!

ea73 said...

I'm going to throw out Megan Fox's name just for fun. Who knows?

selenakyle said...

I'm gonna check out the Goonies thing, thanks for the heads-up, CaliGirlinVa!

It's one of my all-time faves.

mingreader said...

Anna Kendrick?

Mic said...

Kristen Stewart just for the "I had no idea this youngish B list movie actress...was so nice" remark.

Jessica said...

I think it's Rachel McAdams.

heatherhug said...

This story is really familiar. An actor did this a while ago for a homeless guy, paid his rent in some apartment, got him back on his feet. I can't remember who it is, maybe someone here will. RDJ? Ed Norton? Ugh, driving me nuts...

heatherhug said...

I remembered. It was Colin Farrell!!

P said...

B list, young-ish, in one movie after another in the past year and Enty not thinking she was nice all fit Emily Blunt. From all I've heard, she isn't very nice, but who knows.

*girl said...

Colin Farrell in Toronto, actually. It was during film fest here a few years ago, and then he came to check up on him the last time he was here.

Absolutely amazing.

Robert said...

Drew Barrymore was in here for doing this for a homeless family, once, too.

Sue said...

No clue, but whomever she is...what a totally lovely thing to do.

Jamie's Girl said...

Seyfried, I think too.

Mango said...

No clue, but I also can't wait for the reveal. It's nice when blinds aren't all about casting couches and marital cheating, etc. (though don't get me wrong. I do love those, lol) It's just good to know that Hollyweird isn't totally inhabited by freaks.

C'mon July 4th!!

mygeorgie said...

What a lovely story to end the day :)

Sunnyside1213: I look forward to the Hoff! Thanks for the tip. Crazy woman, Sean Young,is on Y&R right now as the tarted up barmaid from Canada! Plaid shirt, red lipstick, 80's hair & all. Hilarious & sad really, not just that Sean has stooped to such lows, but also the hick portrayal :D:D

mygeorgie said...

...the hick portrayal of *Canadians*!

Mary Stewart-McGovern said...

I was thinking Anna Kendrick (Twilight series, Up in the Air). She has a reputation as being a total sweetheart and I could see her doing something like this.

Either way, I'm hoping we'll see the reveal this in July. : )

john said...

I like the Malin Ackerman guess because I was just thinking that she was everywhere and in everything. Another one is Elizabeth Banks.

I work with homeless and sometimes half the battle is getting them off the streets. For some of them, the streets feel safer as often they have a mistrust of the system, so I love that this person was able to get back on his feet.

john said...

Oh and Colin RULES! Not at all how the media portray him.

canadachick said...

i'm throwing out dakota Fanning.

Charlie said...

Betty White...she's youngish.

Mina said...

Sorry, but my cynical me says that this story is not true and that someone's pr person spread that story as a BI to not make it too obvious that they actually want to polish up a bitchy actress' rep with it.

mngddess said...

I actually had a thought (shocking!!!) - Amanda Seyfried. Seems like a sweet girl.

Danielle said...

I'm going with Amanda Seyfried. The blind does say "I had no idea this actress was so nice" so apparently we would be suprised by the answer.

ramble said...

What about Kristin Bell? She seems nice!

Salsa Lover said...

Zoe Saldana is my guess mostly because she has been in like every movie lately.

Marion said...

Whoever she is - a big YAY for her ! Kindness will reap it's own rewards, I love these stories better than the bitchy ones !

Monica said...

i've heard that Kristen Bell is a bitch. But I like what Mina said about this being a PR stunt to clean up someone's bad girl image. So maybe it is Kristen Bell.

Me.. said...

Ben affleck in drag...

Marie said...

Kristin Stewart was my first thought...

Amit! said...

My first thought was actually Gemma Arterton. She had Clash of the Titans right before Prince of Persia.
