Blind Items Revealed

November 12, 2010

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

#1 - Empire Records
#2 - Angelina Jolie
#3 - Liv Tyler

Angelina Jolie, batshit crazy? Hahaha, gee that's surprising.

I wish I could be a fly on the wall for one week in Angelina's world. I'm sure it would be educational.

cdanluva said...

that was a juicy reveal enty.

fairylights said...

Dumber than a box of rocks? HAHAHAH!!! Loved Liv in LOTR, but I admit she comes across as a bit dim!

witwritergirl said...

If I looked like that I wouldn't care if I could tie my own darn shoes! Angelina is bat shizzzzz crazy.

special k said...

This is my favorite reveal ever. EVER.

ConqueringKing said...

BY FAR my favorite movie ever and my favorite reveal to this point.....

LMFAO...I remember this blind, and everyone was saying it was Clueless/Reese Witherspoon/Alicia Silverstone

...how wrong we were...

eyeonu2 said...

Wonder what the hell she on at the audition.

timebob said...

Liv was just a kid when she did Empire Records so I will give her a pass.

But I think her hippy dippy shtick is all an act. Not that I think she is bright at all.

Angelina was just being a brat thinking she was being "artistic"

*sigh* rich kids.

jax said...

suck on that Angie!

jess said...

batshit crazy...hahaha - I saw this movie a few months ago and sometimes I play in my head "money...oh oh..it's what I want"

shakey said...

I have the soundtrack for this film. Great movie. I wonder if Angie still breaks down like that.

Cecilia00 said...

Jolie was a kid too, like 19 I guess.
But damn.

timebob said...

And let us not forget this one of squinty eyes Renee Z.'s early movies.

farmgirl said...

Liv is dumber than a box of rocks. She was shopping for a country home in my area and worked with an agent in my office. He was a former actor (legit) and knew people in the business and still thought she was stupid as hell. Beauty only goes so far in the real world.

Bitter Queen said...

sooooo...

slightly off-topic, but whatever happened to that CelebBlindItem person on twitter? She (he?) posted like 10 BIs after Enty mentioned her, but nothing for the past month or so.

pomme said...

my guess was "3 weddings and a funeral"/Marisa Tomei/Andie McDowel! it's all wrong !

i understand now the words "and some videos"

awesome guess

MISCH said...

Liv is one of the nicest people around....
Angie...no surprise, I still think something weird is going to happen with her..

ItsAJ said...

@Bitter Queen
Was wondering that too, they were great short blinds

sunnyside1213 said...

I wondered the same thing about the twitter bitch.

TinselSass said...

Finally breaking away from the day to join in the CDaN fun! Happy 2011 to all of you. Enty, thanks for a day worth waiting for... fantastic reveals.

Momster said...

Wow. . .I wondered if this would be revealed! At that point in her life I think Angie had serious drug issues.

chihuahuense said...

@timebob--I always get Renee and that other squinty blond mixed up in their earlier films, so I didn't remember the blond as Renee--thanks for that reminder!

I like Liv, although she *does* always have that dumbass fly-catching gape where I'm like, "umm....close your mouth!"

Rickatoo said...

@chihuahuense - Joey Lauren Adams

RocketQueen said...

Agree with momster. She was a mess for years. I know people think she's still messed up, but I genuinely believe she loves those kids and wants to be a good mother, and wouldn't risk their welfare by being as batshit crazy as she used to be.

Vicki said...

Oh, RQ. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I would like to believe that, too.

lanasyogamama said...

This is a GREAT reveal!

MCH said...

I LOVE this reveal also. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for both auditions & seen the look on the producers' faces. Loved this movie/soundtrack also. Good times.

Miss X said...

another great reveal! Before I scrolled down to the reveal, I was still expecting it to be Clueless.

Debutante said...

HA HA As soon as I read bats*hit crazy, I knew it was Jolie ! What a headcase. Sadly, I didn't guess the rest ! Liv Tyler is dumb as a box of rocks --hilarious. She seems like a sweet person though.

West End Girl said...

I LOVE Empire Records, in fact it's my all-time favourite film. Saying that, I can't see how Jolie in it would ever have worked.

Thanks Enty for such an awesome reveal!

parissucksliterally said...

A few people guessed correctly at this blind. I remember.

Angie admits to have been crazy....I don't see what is so shocking. If she had a meltdown on a set NOW, it would be different. Now she is the prim and proper humanitarian.

cali said...

Crazy or not, the past 15-20 yrs have shown Angelina to be the better script picker...not that it matters since Liv has Aerosmith $$.

Kelsey said...

love this! i can't see Angelina working in that role. as "dumb" as she was apparently, I think Liv did great.

Julie said...

just throwing this out there, Angelina was in the "its about time" (as the bad girl, Amy smart was the "good" girl) video for the Lemonheads, and Evan Dando is good friends with Liv (they were in Heavy together), and her ex husband.

Not to mention, Evan covered Battle of El Goodo on that soundtrack... wonder if there is a connection? hmmm.

RM said...

This is my favorite reveal so far.

Henriette said...

I guessed this one right!

Tonje said...

Yey!!! Empire Records is one of my favorite movies ever and it would not have been the same with Angie in it. I can't stand the woman who has obviously been batshit crazy for a lot longer than many think. This is my favorite reveal!

Barton Fink said...

This reveal has made me believe that 2011 will be the best year of my entire life. Thanks!

Mandy said...

Not surprising, wasn't Jolie a serious drug user back then? I really dislike her, but hope she's better now and a good mom.
I like Liv - she seems like a nice woman and she's gorgeous. Plus she was young at the time, so I'd hardly expect a bunch of executives to think she was a genius.

E said...

Ha! Told ya so. I actually mentioned the wrong movie, but he fact is, Angie did this more than once. I told you guys about the Angie/Timothy Hutton breakup and this being the reason for this particular crazy ass episode.
