Blind Item

When I tell you later about this couple having sex, your jaw will hit the floor. You just would not expect it in a million years. This happened in the very late 80's and very early 90's. This permanent A list actor who has not really done anything lately to continue to merit that status was dating three actresses at the same time. One actress became his wife. One was someone who would help him with his kinks, and our actor has a lot of them. The other was an actress who was just starting out at the time, but is now pretty close to A list and once actually was. Much like Hugh Hefner, our actor would rotate the three throughout the week, and often throughout the same 24 hours. Apparently he really liked the newcomer, but she thought he was way too old for her. So, she moved on and probably regrets who she moved on to almost everyday.

Bruce Willis for the actor?

jbdean_79 said...

Clint or Harrison

Rose said...

Jen A for the newcomer?

Eve said...

Definitely Jack Nicholson for the actor. Rebecca Broussard for the actress he married; maybe Lara Flynn Boyle for the actress that helped him with his kinks; and for the newcomer... hmmm. Katie Holmes?

mikey said...

Warren Beatty - or was he too old by then for this blind?

lawyagirl said...

I think Eve nailed it.

PM said...

More info please!

Ida Blankenship said...

Clint Eastwood has DEFINITELY produced A-list work over the past decade. Dude still knows how to hustle. I miss all those movies he did with Clyde, though. He needs to get back on that.

I thought of Harrison Ford, too. I also thought of Jack Nicholson -- a known womanizer with a taste for kinkiness, and ALL he does anymore is go to basketball games. And sit in the front row of the Kodak Theater with his sunglasses on, of course. And didn't he marry Angelica Huston?

The last person mentioned intriques me. Who is now married and apparently hating it? The only person I can think of is Katie Holmes, but she's obviously too young to fit this blind.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Good call, Eve!

Ida Blankenship said...

@Eve -- glad to know someone else is on the Jack train. But Katie would have been WAY too young! If Jack found her sexy back then, there's something SERIOUSLY wrong with him.

lauramart said...

Nicole Kidman for the one with regrets?

Cecilia00 said...

Nicholson is a great guess, actually.

I was going to say Bruce Willis for the actor and Demi for the wife? They married in 1987 but there are all those rumors about Demi wanting open relationships...So she probably knew and didn't care.

Susan said...

I'm definitely on the Jack Nick train, with Lara Flynn Boyle as the kink master. Bravo, Eve.

Jessi said...

I'm thinking its Warren Beatty. But I do like the Jack Nicholson guess. And Katie Holmes would have been a young teenager if this happened late 80s early 90s. And that would be all kinds of creepy.

Someone Said said...

Katie Holmes was born in 1978.

Patty said...

"When I tell you late..." As in 6 months from now? Ugh, the wait.

Enty, can't you throw us a few bones, like this one, on Labor Day?

Patty said...

"later" not "late

Cecilia00 said...

If Warren Beatty was the actor - would Madonna be the Kink Master??

See, that fits for me...

He's this notorious playboy, makes Dick Tracy in 1990 with Madonna, dates her - and then in 1991 makes Bugsy with Annette Bening and marries her.

People always wondered how she tamed him...(Or at the very least got a ring on his finger)

Maybe he worked out his kinks wih Madonna and then was ready to settle down?

Suhyphen said...

I think Sandra Bullock is the 3rd. She was A list there for a while and is still a strong B, not too mention Jesse James.
She was born in '64 so late 80's she would have been mid-20's.
Also Katie Holmes WISHES she were once an A and as has been pointed out, entirely too young.

Not sure who the actor is, thought Bruce at first but when did he and Demi get married?
Harrison would work I guess, just kind of skeeves me out to think Indy is into kink. Han Solo I could see, but Indy?

RocketQueen said...

Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson are both great guesses...it's the newcomer who used to be/is still close to A list now that is stumping me...

Cecilia00 said...

@Suhyphen Bruce & Demi married in 1987

Suhyphen said...

Gotcha, thanks Cecilia :)

ali said...

My initial thought on the actor was Will Smith.... Of course his wife is Jada, not sure who the other two would be

Cecilia00 said...

And I LOVE the Sandra Bullock suggestion - and guess what?

She worked with Lara Flynn Boyle (if Nicholson is our guy) on a TV movie about the Preppie Murders, so they would know eachother.

Cecilia00 said...

Forgot to add that the Preppie Murder movie was 1989 - perfect timeframe

Someone Said said...

The thing about Boyle is that she was born in 1970, and Bullock is about six years older.

Cecilia00 said...

@Someone Said

Good Point.

There goes that theory.

Suhyphen said...

Right but he said 'just starting out'. Or did he mention younger and I missed it? Boyle actually made a mark before Sandra did (Twin Peaks) in the late 80's.

Just because a late 20 something thinks a 60 yr old is too old doesn't mean a 20 year old does.

*shrug* still don't know who the guy is but I do cast my vote for 3 being Bullock.

Mary said...

Jack, Lara, and Kelly Preston for the newcomer??

MontanaMarriott said...

I like the Warren, Annette, Madonna and Sandra with the whole Jesse James thing.

I also like the Jack Nicholson and would add Angelica Huston in the mix since he was closely tied to her at the time.

selenakyle said...

Somehow this is screaming Warren Beatty to me...

FS said...

Jack seems like a good guess, but would Tom Hanks fit this timeframe? Perhaps with Rita Wilson, Julie Roberts and someone else? Hmmm.

But the age reference near the end probably does point more to Jack than Hanks.

Goodgrief said...

Jack never married Broussard, only procreated with her. I am pretty sure he has only been married once and that was over 40 years ago. He has a few kids out there with various girlfriends but he did not marry them.

J-Mo said...

Dang, I wanted it to be Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gwyneth with home he starred in Dangerous Games 1999. BUT he didn't start dating Zeta-Jones until 1999.

J-Mo said...

sorry, the movie was actually A Perfect Murder, not Dangerous Games.

Momster said...

Hanks would fit the timeframe (and was my first guess) but it says the actor hasn't done anything lately, and Hanks had a movie that just came out.

Can't wait for this one to be revealed, wow.

M said...

Um, if we go with Madonna as one of the actresses, then we'd be classifying her as an actress and she is a dreadful one, at that...

Unknown said...

Michael Keaton and Courtney Cox?

what do I type here? said...

I somehow think Kelly Preston is a good guess as she seems to have dated so many poeple.
I am also thinking Jack N and Lara Flynn Boyle.

white lorelei said...

Gosh, I thought for sure people would be guessing Burt Reynolds for the actor. Kinks because of all the injuries and subsequent pill addictions he had.

I was thinking the three actresses were Sally Field (for the kinks), Loni Anderson (whom he married), and Kim Bassinger, who was only in her 4th movie in The Man Who Loved Women in '83, and of course probably regrets her marriage to Baldwin every day.

Someone Said said...

Burt and Loni were married in 1988. I like the guess though. Basinger was born in 1953.

Goodgrief said...

I like the Burt Reynolds guess. Didn't he also date Dinah Shore, she was much old than him. I bet she was kinky.

Goodgrief said...

Although Dinah was a singer and talk show host, not an actress

Someone Said said...

Paul Hogan with Nicole Kidman as the newcomer.

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Warren Beatty, Annette Bening, Halle Berry

Someone Said said...

Whoever the actor is, perhaps Winona Ryder is the newcomer?

Aly said...

There were some stories after she died that Dinah preferred to dine at the Y, not the Diner; Burt was just acting another role as her Merkin.

DavidsFan said...

Warren Beatty, Annette Bening, Diane Keaton and the older actress in Red. Stapleton something ?

Daveb said...

If I read this correctly it happened by the very early 90s and the actor subsequently married one of the actresses. Based on that only Warren Beatty qualifies. Jack Nicholson has been divorced since 1968 and never legally remarried. BruCe Willis married Demi Moore in 1987. Burt Reynolds married Loni Anderson in 1988. Only Warren married after the "very early 90s" (to Annette Bening in 1992). He was 55 when he married so he probably qualifies as "way too old" for an actress just starting out.

Eve said...

Oh well, maybe my Nicholson guess isn't it (since he didn't marry Rebecca Broussard). Slightly off-topic, I heard a funny story about Bruce Willis from the '80s. He basically hit on, then went to third base with someone at a party, then she had to go, realized she forgot something and came back to see him already in flagrante delicto with another woman at the party. LOL.

The problem with this blind is that I can't think of many actors who are living and are permanently A list other than Nicholson and Eastwood.

Goodgrief said...

Eastwood isn't married to an actress. She is a former news reporter.

He said it would be shocking, so this means someone who you would consider innocent or incapable, I'm going to say Bill Cosby! Call me crazy!!!

flanny said...

The Warren Beatty one really fits. The timing is right, Madonna fits the kink factor, he married Annette, and Halle could be the newcomer who regretted moving on... perhaps Enty means David Justice? Didn't he hit her? Then there was Eric Benet, who was a serial cheater?

JasonBlueEyes said...

I'll bet the newcomer was Sarah Jessica Parker.. She and Bruce did a movie back in 93'.

Vik said...

Can't be Cosby he married in 1964

Debutante said...

Yep. I just saw this and thought of Warren Beatty.
Annette Bening - Wife
Madonna - Kink
Halle Berry - Newcomer

JasonBlueEyes said...

Halle and Warren are still friendly and talk every once n a while. Do you think Annette minds this?

Goodgrief said...

If this is Beatty I think the most shocking thing is that he was only rotating at a time.

Goodgrief said...

I meant to say 3 at a time.

mngddess said...

Clooney, Clooney, Clooney.

Daveb said...

I'm with Beatty, Bening and Madonna but I have trouble with Halle Berry as the newcomer. The timing is right but frankly it wouldn't make my "jaw hit the floor" or be something I "would not expect in a million years". I think we need someone else to have that effect on me.

Basil said...

I like the Warren Beatty/Annette/Madonna gues. But if the jaw droppers is the 3rd actress, well not sure. Would the fact that Warren Beatty had sex with any woman in the world be worthy of being called "jaw-dropping"?

Goodgrief said...

I must say my jaw dropped a bit when I saw that Justine Bateman was one of his conquests. But then she dated Billy Idol and he isn't young.

Ida Blankenship said...

I'll change my guess to Warren, because he obviously fits the clues in the blind much better.

But I also agree with daveb and Nightmare Child in that Warren had sex with a LOT of willing women, so the third party is a little harder to pin down. How many sane hetero men would turn down Halle Berry? They seem like a pretty well-matched pair, physically. I dunno.

Kid Sis said...

I think we're looking for someone who projects a real air of innocence and piety...

I like Rose's guess of Jen A for the newcomer. That would have been around PARKER LEWIS CAN'T LOSE TIME, pre-FRIENDS. And someone who would allegedly make Brad Pitt wait for sex sharing Warren Beatty would give me a little bit of TMJ...

ardleigh said...

To change things up:

Michael Douglas (I know he was married too)

CZJ

Sharon Stone

Goop

nichole said...

I was actually thinking Tom Hanks. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it were Warren Beatty even though he's been married for awhile. He just has that reputation. Tom Hanks always has an aw shucks, not me thing going. He did even back in the early 80s.

Hanks married Rita Wilson in 1988. The blind says he hasn't done any A-list work lately. I would say that since Larry Crown and Charlie Wilson's War weren't very well received, he's A based on his past work and reputation. He was in Joe Vs the Volcano with meg Ryan at that time. She used to be A, no longer is and was still relatively new back then. Rita was the one he married and Kim Cattrall was in Bonfire of the Vanities - maybe she helped with the kinks?

Henriette said...

I like the Warren Beatty guess. It fits the timeline with Madonna and Annette Benning. Madonna was a bit shocked he married Annette Benning so quickly. The newcomer could have been Halle Berry, but I like Jennifer Aniston bettter.

Susan said...

How about Robin Wright for the newcomer ? She married Sean Penn . That would be something to regret every day ..

Goodgrief said...

My feeling is that the newcomer probably didn't have kids with the person she moved on to. I don't see how you could regret almost every day for being with that person if you had kids together.

ecua said...

No real thoughts yet on the guy, but I want to throw Robin Wright into the mix for #3-soap opera, Santa Barbara in the late '80's, then the Princess Bride in '87, and career in film from there.
And I KNOW if I were her, I'd regret marrying that douche Sean Penn until the end of time!

Daphnie said...

Harrison Ford for the man, Jack Nicholson wouldn't make anyone's jaw drop.

Nicole Kidman for the the 'newcomer'.

Beth said...

Warren Beatty was the only person I thought of.

The jawdropper is definitely going to be the newcomer. I like the Halle guess, but would that be a jawdropper?

There were rumors that she and Beatty had an affair when they filmed Bulworth.

Daphnie said...

P.S. Warren Beatty wouldn't make anyone's jaw drop either. Both he and Jack are notorious for their ways with women.

Goodgrief said...

when I think jaw dropper it is something so unfathomable that your jaw just drops to the ground and stays there. Like Queen Elizabeth and Brian Williams or something.

Jamie's Girl said...

I can't even imagine Beatty being thrown into this conversation. He slept with everything that moved. I wouldn't be surprised if he worked over the Queen of England.

Harrison Ford would shock me. And if he worked over Kate Capshaw, that would shock me even more, since she ditched anything and everyone for Spielberg.

Tom Hanks is still acting.

Jamie's Girl said...

Pierce Brosnan...Would he be A?

Jamie's Girl said...

Dustin Hoffman, Robert Dinero, none of them would shock me.

Jamie's Girl said...

Richard Gere might shock in something like this. But he seems so happy with his wife.

Jamie's Girl said...

Kevin Bacon doesn't really fit.

Caprica said...

If I found out either Bullock or Halle Berry has the sex with Warren Beatty I might be a little jaw dropped. It has a Kimberly Stewart -benicio del toro WTF flavor to it

Jennifer H. said...

Warren Beatty was known for sleeping with beautiful women, so I wouldn't call an affair with Halle Berry something that would make my jaw "drop to the floor." I do like that guess the best though.

If Halle is the newcomer in this guess, regardless of whether it's Warren, if she moved on to Wesley Snipes afterwards, she would definitely regret it "almost every day." Didn't Wesley Snipes hit her in the side of the head so hard she went deaf in one ear?

My guess, at least for the newcomer, is Halle Berry. It's got to be someone other than WB though. Not a shocker at all.

karenab said...

How about Tom Cruise? Married Mimi Rogers in '87, when he was 25. Had been living with Rebecca de Mornay. So the last actress would have to be very young, if she thought 25 was way too old. And who wouldn't be surprised to hear he had had 3 women on the go?

nichole said...

And the blind doesn't say the actor is no longer acting, the blind says that the actor hasn't done anything lately to warrant their A list status. Which could mean they aren't acting, but could also mean their movies haven't done as well and they're A list by history/reputation only.

I still think it's Hanks.

Goodgrief said...

I'm not sure if Ted Danson would be a permanent A-list actor by any stretch of the imagination even with 11 years of Cheers. But he dated Whoopi Goldberg for kink and married Mary Steenburgen and no idea for the newcomer. He wears a toupe which would make him appear old to younger women. Just throw another name out there.

Beth said...

Tom Hanks doesn't really fit. He married Rita Wilson in 1988. The time line is off.

Daveb said...

I don't see Tom Hanks because (a) he was already married and (b) the newcomer thought he was "way too old" for her. Remembering that this was twenty plus years ago (i.e. late 80s-very early 90s) Tom was still in his early 30s (by comparison Warren Beatty was then in his mid 50s). I am still hung up on which newcomer would drop my jaw. Halle Berry, Sandra Bulloch and possibly Jennifer Aniston fit the timelines, the career arcs and the bad subsequent relationships. Personally only Aniston would approach OMG. Someone mentioned Robin Wright Penn, fine actress but never really worked enough to be A list. Someone mentioned Goopy but she was borderline legal at the time and I would have thought that would have been mentioned in the blind if applicable. The only name I could think of as an OMG would be Jodie Foster but (a) I do not believe she has any subsequent relationships she regrets day to day and (b) she had worked continuously since childhood and, while on the cusp of big movies at that time, does not really fit as a newcomer. I guess I will just have to wait for the reveal.

B. Profane said...

I knew Yale dykes who had slept with Jodie back in those days. If JF had had a one-night stand with a guy, that would have been an OMG moment. Foster having an affair with a man would have been a mega-crazy, sun-rising-in-the-west impossibility.

AM said...

Umm... Sandra Bullock is A-list people. She's the biggest most bankable, in demand actress at the moment. So it's not her.

theMaus said...

I'm going with Ewan McGregor on this one. He got married in the 90's and is known for some kinky sex habits.

ecua said...

Richard Gere

Ultimately married: Cindy Crawford in 1991 or Cary Lowell in 2002

For kinks: Julia Roberts??

Newcomer: Uma Thurman (Gere cofounded a Tibet-related organization w/her family in 1987, and she MUST regret marrying Ethan Hawke!)

pk8 said...

it didn't specify that the newcomer married her next partner, just that she regretted it... this opens the door wide open for possibilities...


i.e.- Jodie Foster having one-night stand with Mel Gibson on set of Maverick (if she plays for the girls' team, then this would be the next male member she experienced and given recent events could definitely be a regret for life thing)
