Four For Friday - With Some Kindness

#1 & #2 This Academy Award nominee/winner was filming a movie in a town where she heard about a little girl being hit by a car and the driver running away. The little girl suffered significant brain damage and her parents started a site to keep people updated on what happened. This is what our actress wrote on the site.

Dear Sarah and David and Laura---
I have so enjoyed starting my days reading your updates, written so beautifully and with such love. I am thrilled to hear you have come thru your final surgery with flying colors....but that was to be expected with an extraordinary girl like you! Today I begin my last week of shooting ___________. Saying goodbye won't be easy but it's been an incredibly journey, one marked most profoundly by a young girl I have never met....YOU> Thank you for inspiring me and so many......I guess I don't have to tell you to GO GIRL....because no one needs to tell Sarah, she's already begun. What a story, what a family, what a remarkable young woman.
Be WELL. Be Happy. Be creative and never, never...be 'Normal'!
With Love,_________________

#1 - Actress
#2 - Movie she was filming

#3- This American Idol Top 5 runnerup and all around great guy was at a singing competition recently to act as judge and encouragement for the contestants. One of the contestants was a huge fan of his and was shocked and excited when he came out onto the stage and started shaking hands. Tears in her eyes and everything. After his encouragement which included plugging his show at a local club that night, he left the stage with the contestants. Backstage, he gave her a hug and talked with her a bit before she had to go back out and sing. When she was being interviewed, she kept saying how nervous she was with him watching her backstage and she hopes she does well for him. Unfortunately there was better talent and she lost. Now normally, after the "celebrity encouragement," they leave before the competition even begins, but he stayed. And, upon hearing she lost and would be free that night, he invited her and her family to his show with free tickets and backstage VIP passes. The girl was so surprised she began to cry.

#4 - This male, married, A list, mostly movie actor, but famous for television was at a party recently when he was confronted by a female model. It turns out the actor had sex with the model a few times and blown her off and changed his phone number and there the model was confronting him about he just screwed her and left. Lucky for the actor, his wife was not there, but 50 other people were there and heard every word.

1 & 2 - Not sure
3 - No guess
4 - Is Ashton Kutcher considered A-List from a name recognizition and producing standpoint because this sounds right up his alley...

L00nyBin said...

I thought of Charlize Theron for #1 but she isn't filming anything...

Adventurous Kate said...

Googled a bit. The girl is Sarah Goone in Chicago. Not sure who the celebrity is.

If anyone wants to comb through her CaringBridge site, it's here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahgoone1

nichole said...

I thought of Cameron Diaz for #1/#2, filming Night & Day maybe? She filmed My Sister's Keeper so I can see her having compassion for a young girl trying to survive.

austinrob said...

3. David Archuleta

L00nyBin said...

well, whoever was filming in Michigan around March of this year...here's the story of little Sarah

Anotheramy said...

Im going with Bo Bice as the idol for #3

L00nyBin said...

Adventurous Kate, look a the link I posted, it's a little girl named Sarah Curl and her dad's name is David...

Adventurous Kate said...

For #3, I want to say Elliot Yamin or Bo Bice.

princessd said...

1 & 2 - is virgina madsen and the movie is scoundrels....

http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sarahgoone1/guestbook/19

#3 - maybe chris daughtry??

Adventurous Kate said...

Nice, princessd!

RocketQueen said...

But isn't Scoundrels a tv series?

#4 is driving me crazy - I feel like it should be pretty easy! Bruce Willis?

L00nyBin said...

nice, princessd - I was 100% wrong..

austinrob said...

hey kate, i also like the elliott yamin guess. some friends of mine met him on 6th st here in austin & they said he was very very nice...could be him.

princessd said...

ha! i just clearly have wayyy too much time on my hands and unsupervised internet access at work...

ellapetal said...

Not only did Virgina Madsen check in with her, she did it no less than four times giving Sarah updates on what she was doing and giving Sarah encouragement on her progress. So cool.

Bella said...

@ Pricessd - Yeah!

MCH said...

Awww love the kindness blinds!

sunnyside1213 said...

Well done Princessd.

Damned Fallacy said...

Looks like Sarah Goone went to the same high school where Virginia Madsen graduated from, so that's the connection.

Keep the kindnesses coming and revealed (or easy to figure out)! We can all go watch Virginia Madsen instead of Mel Gibson. :)

Fui said...

Filming in Chicago recently was the exquisite Winona...

Fui said...

I stand corrected -- partly. Winona IS exquisite, but the wonderful #1 is Virginia Madsen, filming Scoundrels.

sunnyside1213 said...

Is Virginia the reveal about the director and her husband?

And I think #4 was Asston Kurcher.

sunnyside1213 said...

Kutcher. If I could type, I would be dangerous.

Ms Cool said...

#1, #2 - WTG Virginia Madsen. Big fan as of today.
#3 Danny Gokey
#4 No way can Ashton Kutcher be A list. Speaking of Caring Bridge, don't forget he helped the Wisconsin kid using his Twitter account. Here's the link:

Ms Cool said...

Aw crap. That boy that Ashton kept in touch with died last August. I followed it for a while and then stopped. Poor kid.

js said...

#3 is definitely Elliott Yamin (Enty loves him and I do too)

bitterella said...

#2 is Elliot Yamin, for sure.

1 & 2. Virginia Madsen & Scoundrels. I live in Chicago and I'm on that board. The Madsens are just all around good people and class acts.


3. Don't know.


4. Totally Ashton Kutcher.

amh.producer said...

I would agree with Virginia madden is scoundrels was a movie. But it's a tv show on abc.

kvr said...

Thanks Adventurous Kate! Your link was the right one. VM was easy to spot because she has signed the guestbook VERY recently.

not on my dollar said...

Is this really Virginia and the movie/tv show Scoundrels? If so that's too bad because that show is awful. Also I didn't know it was filmed in Chicago.

not on my dollar said...

#4 could be asston because he did "somehow" make it to the top spot in spite of his assiness.

AlleyCat said...

I like the blinds that you can figure out with google :)

Well done princessd!

jbarinsd said...

#3 sounds like Adam Lambert. He's currently on tour, has die hard fans and from all accounts is a super nice guy.

travelin' sue ann said...

#1 Jennifer Connelly filmed #2 Salvation Boulevard in Michigan this year, this is near where the news reported on the accident and the family.

Kit said...

1) Virginia Madsen
2) Elliot Yamin (though I like Bo Bice for it too)
3) Jon Cryer

lol.

Andrea said...

Virginia Madsen was filming near where I live in New Mexico a few summers ago and I agree, she is very kind, unpretentious, and a real sweetheart!

delilah said...

there is a reason kutcher was top spot...FTW #4.
he just looks douche, i am sure this pix is in the dictionary under it.

Barton Fink said...

I have been a Ginnie Madsen fan for more years than I care to admit (it would mean admitting I'm in my mid-forties -- oops), so hearing about this just makes me love her all the more!

rdmtimp said...

@Sunnyside1213 - what "director and her husband" blind are you referring to? I doubt if it involves Madsen, as she's only been married once (to Danny Huston, from 1989-92).

sunnyside1213 said...

ooooooooooooppppps. Sorry, I was mixing up Virginia with Gretchen Mol for the blind about the wife and the director. Does anyone have a link to that blind?

Donna said...

It is always amazing to me how the "other woman" gets so mad at the married man after he dumps her. What did she expect? I am hopping on board the Ashton train.

westward ho said...

totally going with adam lambert for #3. it is SO the sort of thing he does.

westward ho said...

p.s. love to virginia madsen for the kindness -- "kind vice"? "kind/nice"? what a class act.

Stef said...

#4 Adam Sandler.

SNL
"50" first dates

Sian said...

#4 - Will Smith?

Mindy said...

#1 Virginia Madsen
#2 Scoundrels

Thanks for enough info to google it and read Sarah's story. God bless her and her family.

Too bad more celebrities can't be like Virginia. Doesn't take much to just be a genuinely nice person. Thanks Enty for blinds like this. It's a refreshing change from the other self-centered, self-medicated, drug addicted "don't you know who I am" pr*ck celebrities who feel they are entitled to do whatever they want and never have to be held responsible for their actions.

I pray for Sarah's continued recovery and that the girl who is responsible is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I won't give her name because what she did was inexcusable and she is clearly a selfish and disgusting human being. Her parents are just as awful with criminal back rounds. Please don't let our justice system fail Sarah's family.

anita_mark said...

Regarding #4, it doesn't say he was married at the time of having sex with the model.

I go with Bruce Willis.

Janet said...

#4 Will Ferrell

Tara said...

If VM is super nice, that is awesome, however, she does not fit for this item. Scoundrels is a television show, not a movie. It specifically says this is a movie and that she was finishing filming that week. In addition, Scoundrels films on location in New Mexico. Jennifer Connelly fits this much better for Salvation Boulevard.

Tara said...

VM may be super nice but she doesn't fit this blind for the letter featured here, though she may have signed the guestbook. Scoundrels is a television show on NBC and it shoots in New Mexico. There are two links above for two different hit and run victims named Sarah, and the one in the blind is Sarah Goone, her parents names match the letter from the celeb. So the film location is Chicago, not Michigan.
