Four For Friday - Really 3 Today

Going back to the 90's for this one and one of my favorite movies. Anyway, back when this movie was shot, this current A+ list female always movies actress still had to audition. So, she did for this comedy but did not get the role. Why? In a very, very brief audition our actress broke down three times crying and screaming. The producers called her "bat s**t crazy." So, instead the role went to an unknown who was deemed by the producers as "dumber than a box of rocks," but has worked her way up to a B+ lister who has always been in movies. Oh, and some videos.

#1 - Movie
#2 - A+ lister
#3 - B+ lister

OFF TOPIC...a commenter mentioned here last week about an 'underground' website where people dish celeb topics. This was discussed in one of the John Mayer threads. Weezy or Lady J???

What is the website address?

Ryan said...

1. Clueless
2. Zelwegger
3. Profit! (Just Kidding.) Alicia Silverstone.

1. Clueless
2. ...
3. Alicia Silverstone

Who's A+ and around her mid 30's?

lana said...

i like the zelwegger guess because Kathy Griffin described encountering her before and I was blown away by how weird and stupid renee came across

Funny Girl said...

The clueless guesses seem as good as any. However, is Renee Zelwegger still A+ list?

Ryan said...

Renee is permanent A list because she's won an Oscar and been nominated 2 other times.

New Life and Attitude said...

And is Alicia Silverstone really considered B+? I like her, but I wouldn't think she is that high, and she's rarely in movies anymore. Heck I can't recall the last movie she was in.

nunaurbiz said...

I immediately thought of Angelina for the A+ actress. Don't think she's ever done TV, unless you count "Gia," and that was a feature film shown on HBO, so does that count?

I can see a young Angelina cracking up like this.

No idea of the movie or B+ lister.

Cecilia00 said...

#1 Clueless
#2 Drew Barrymore
#3 Alicia Silverstone

Dana @ FashionUnder$100 said...

I don't think Alicia is B+ list.

Just to play devil's advocate:

1. Empire Records
2. Reese Witherspoon
3. Liv Tyler

OMG Clueless is one of your fave movies too? Let's get some popcorn and watch it together! You'll have to put up with me reciting every line though ...

Nosey Parker said...

1. There's Something About Mary
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Cameron Diaz

sunnyside1213 said...

No clue. Sorry.

JW said...

My first thought was:
1 - The Mask
3 - Cameron Diaz

I didn't have a guess for #2 but I like the Angelina Jolie guess.

Jaiden_S said...

I like the Drew guess for #2.

Tanzania said...

Alicia Silverstone once did a TV Show on NBC - "Miss Match" - so she's not one of the guesses.

rebellious, contrary and nice said...

I believe that Drew has a mental illness that I am sure she still self-meds to this day.

Alicia could have been B list back in the 90s.

beguessin said...

looked at imdb trivia for Clueless - they say Alicia didn't have to audition for the role. Liv Tyler was in her dad's music videos, so i'll go with Dana's guess

Jennifer said...

I don't think Alicia fits. She has been on 1 or 2 failed TV series.

Pookie said...

1-shakespeare in love (rom-com)
2-julia roberts (she backed out)
3-goopy (cuz she sings and surely has been in a vid or two)

flwrgurl said...

i used to work for the business mgmt firm for Renee zellwegger. um she was the most superficial person i have ever met!

Lissette said...

I have Hilary Swank in my head.
Hmmm...
Liv Tyler and Empire Records

Tanagra said...

I kept thinking Halle Berry for 1, but I can't think of a hit comedy movie from the 90's that she might have missed out starring in or who would be 2.

Funny Girl said...

@ Pookie - That's a great guess, but I don't think that Gwyneth is anything less than A- since she won her Oscar.

Eileen said...

Lurker here...

How about:
1. Four Weddings and Funeral
2. Marisa Tomei
3. Andie McDowell

jgirl828 said...

i don't know who or what movie it is, but people guessing Alicia Silverstone....c'mon, shes so nowhere near B+

gigi said...

Plus Alicia's been in TV. I like Liv Tyler and Reese Witherspoon, but I can't imagine anyone calling Liv Tyler "dumber than a box of rocks"...I don't know why she never struck me that way, but everything else fits so I'll take it.

Empire Records is an awesome movie.

lanasyogamama said...

This would be a great reveal, but it won't happen.

Monty said...

I'm thinking they aren't MUSIC videos.

Angela said...

#1 - The Mask (1994)
#2 - Julia Roberts (She had done Pretty Woman in 1990, then Flatliners, Sleeping with the Enemy, Dying Young. The Pelican Brief would have been completed but not released at the time of the audition)
#3 - Cameron Diaz (she did this topless bondage video early in her career that was released a few years ago)

RocketQueen said...

Good call Monty - maybe they're of the sex tape variety?? Hmm.

Basil said...

Cher is in the pics today and at first she certainly had to audition for roles, but that was in the 80's, but she is certainly A list, but she has done television.....but that was in the very early 70's so people tend to forget that.

Not sure why this is a blind though. Nothing really scandalous. Someone got upset at an audition, and the person who got the role instead isn't that smart. That could apply to every single actor in the world.

nothistime said...

I am convinced this is Clueless and our dumb as rocks actress is indeed Alicia Silverstone. Enty gave it away with the videos (she did 3 Aerosmith videos. During filming Alicia could not pronounce "Haitians" in her debate speech and the director asked the crew to not correct her because it made the movie better. Not sure about A+ actress.

Terri said...

#1 Clueless
#2 Reese Witherspoon
#3 Alicia Silverstone

bloodonthescreen said...

Office Space: Aniston? & Jerry Mcguire: Renee?. Can't see JM being a favorite movie.

BattaNoKami said...

Mallrats
Reese Witherspoon
???

PS said...

Hey guys - it's not Reese - she was on Friends as Rachel's sister / TV. The only other real A+ listers now who auditioned still in the 90s are probably Julia R. and Angelina, don't you think? And, during the 90s (and continuing?!), they were both batsh*t. Angelina has done TV though (HBO). As for #3, Alicia S. is NOT B+, though dumber than a box of rocks. Cameron Diaz is, too. And, I'd say she's B+ now, previously A-? That'd be for Something About Mary? But, what about Heather Graham in Swingers?? She is gorgeous but stooooopid. I can see Rene Z. going for that role?!

lana said...

1)clueless
2)winona ryder (her batshit crazy screaming crying scene from pippa lee was awesome!)
3)alicia silverstone

Kelli said...

What about the movie Boogie Nights?? Not sure if Heather Graham would be considered B list, but I know she was in a video for American Woman- either Lenny kravitz or a another cover of it. Just not sure who the A-lister is..could have been Angelina, for the role of Roller Girl.

MadLyb said...

I'm liking Eileen's guesses...

chopchop said...

But Alicia Silverstone was not unknown just before Clueless. She was unknown before The Crush, but not before Clueless. She was kind of an It girl when she got the Clueless role.

Jamie's Girl said...

I love this BI! I can only think of Two that are Batshit Crazy, Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts. Both very entitled. Both stole someone else's husband!

Mango said...

Alicia Silverstone immediately came to mind, but I thought it was because she was on The Graham Norton Show today (a repeat, but still...)

I'm liking Clueless and Alicia for 1 & 3. I'm "clueless" about #2!

ea73 said...

1 Jerry Maguire
2 Angelina Jolie
3 Renee Zellweger

Or...
1 There's Something About Mary
2 Sandra Bullock
3 Cameron Diaz

Barton Fink said...

Any blind that invites us to name mentally imbalanced A-list actresses is opening up a wide field. Let's start by eliminating the ones who aren't nutjobs.

E said...

The thing is, this is really old news. I'm thinking enty was feeling a little lazy today and decided to rehash this. The story was that Angie Jo was auditioning for There's Something About Mary. She had been through rough break-up from Timothy Hutton not too long before the audition. She had a MAJOR breakdown during the audition. The stuff of legend. The producers backed off her and decided to go with Cammie D. The rest is history.

Hordaz1_01 said...

Its not "There's Something About Mary" ...Cameron's breakthrough role was the Mask ...years earlier so she wasn't an unknown then

Louise said...

#1 - The Mask
#2 - Nicole Kidman
#3 - Cameron Diaz

The Tempestuous MB said...

I live near the liquor store that Cher was left at with the clown thing.. I don't go that way often, but every time I pass by I think of that scene in Clueless.

Answer said...

Heather Graham is the dummy.

The movie is Austin Powers.

Angelina is the A+ lister.

Is there another?

cassandra said...

alicia silverstone has done a few tv series...maybe mena suvari in american beauty?? or maybe winona ryder in the age of innocence?

Jill said...

According to IMDb, Renee Zellweger auditioned for a role in Dazed and Confused but was just given a non-speaking part; could she be the A+ lister and Milla Jovovich for the B+ lister? It's kind of a stretch, but just thought I'd throw that out there.

Peekwa said...

The site notstarring.com lists Gwyneth Paltrow as having auditioned for There's Something About Mary. This would work with Enty's hate of all things Goopster!

1. There's Something About Mary
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
3. Cameron Diaz

jw12 said...

^^ Goop was probably crying over Pitt

ea73 said...

I like Answer's guesses

pia said...

@Eileen, I remember reading somewhere that Sarah Jessica Parker went out for the role in Four Weddings and a Funeral

ECFan said...

Jolie is not the actress who broke down crying 3 times. Why do people always guess her for every negative BI? Is she the female Ben Affleck or something?

Enty said the person has only done theatrical movies. Jolie won 2 Golden Globes and 2 SAG awards for TV movies (for George Wallace & Gia), therefore she's worked in TV in the past. Duh.

lollydarling said...

This isn't Andie McDowell in Four Weddings, which she got because the director fancied the pants off her even though she was wrong for the role. But I hear she is definitely dumber than a box of rocks.

littleoleme said...

Just want to throw this out there and I know it's off topic so forgive me. After seeing Julie Bowen (Modern Family) on Conan this week, what are the chances she's Coke Mom?

cattyhound said...

What about Dazed and Confused as the movie, and Milla Jovovich as the B+ lister...Not sure about the A lister though

shakey said...

littleoleme - I thought the EXACT same thing! She's been in some movies, but nothing to write home about.

For this blind - what about Groundhog Day? Sharon Stone/Andie MacDowell? (Although I don't consider her B+.) Hard to tell what Ent means about comedy. For me that would be Basic Instinct or any of the Scream movies.

Char said...

Actually ECFan, he didn't say anything about theatrical movies, he just said movies. And Angie gets guessed for blinds alot because she's done a lot of crazy sh!t in her life, so that lends itself to the assumption she may have done some of the crazy blind stuff as well.

Definitely liking Heather Graham for the B+ lister (#3). Not sure the movie or the A+ lister.

ms snarky said...

You know, my very first thought was Sean Young, but I can't come up with a movie. She was offered Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, one site says, but turned it down.

Look at the comment for Princess Bride - (from notstarring.com)

The Princess Bride
Rob Reiner's original choice for the part of Buttercup was Sean Young. But the production team opted to cast unknowns for the part. Actor who got the part: Robin Wright Penn

Even though it was made in 1987, the scenario fits exactly. Sean has some incidents in her past!

caydian said...

Yeah, my first thought was Sean Young, too.

Daveb said...

My Cousin Vinny (1992) and Marisa Tomei for the B lister?

A said...

it can't be cameron for the B+, she was the 2nd highest paid actress in hollywood last year, over jenny a, drew, and angie jo, second only to sandra bullock. she is definitely A-list. i like heather graham or liv tyler for the B+ lister; wasn't heather graham in some music videos too? tho i agree liv tyler has never struck me as "dumb" but what do i know...
