Today's Blind Item

What married Hunger Games actor is having an affair with his much younger female co-star? She is in love. To him it is just a hookup and he already has told others he has his eye on another female actress in the movie. Umm, what about your wife?

Is this Lainey's blind from today or yesterday?

Laura said...

Sounds similar to it Patty. Have to find out who is married on that set,

Patty said...

Lainey's blind...
It was instant attraction when they started rehearsals, despite the fact that he’s supposed to be happily married. On set flirtation, some touching in the trailer, soon became after work “prep time”, and heavy petting in the car, and before long it was a full blown affair. May have been a method situation for him, which would surprise no one, but for her, even though she told herself this was a big girl, mature woman thing to do – take a co-star lover – of course she fell in love, although she obediently went back to her boyfriend and tried to shake it off he cut it off after three weeks as soon as his wife came over to stay. He seems to be able to pretend like it never happened. Which, naturally, is confusing her because she thought it was so real. Of course she did. As it happened, there was a break in the schedule and they haven’t had to work together for a while, much to the studio’s relief. These are big names on a big film with big expectation and there was already enough drama last time around. But shooting with everyone resumes again in a few days, and they’ll be sending an executive to stay around through the stretch to keep a close eye. Babysitting is exactly what it is.

Wes Bentley and Jennifer Lawrence? I can't see her hooking up with Woody Harrelson, and I believe Stanley Tucci's wife passed away.

FS said...

Here's the page at IMDB with the cast. I leave it up to smarter blog regulars than I. :) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1392170/

Dude sounds like a predator.

Cathy said...

Woody Harrelson? Donald Sutherland is married too, but that would be TOO creepy.

linnea said...

Gotta be Jennifer Lawrence, right? Too bad, I havent heard anything bad about her and she seems like a sweet girl.

libby said...

Woody's got the best weed.

Laura said...

I like Nichole's guess of Wes and Jennifer. He is married and she has a boyfriend (I think).

Jeri said...

Way to get your cherry busted (figuratively) in Hollywood.

Chin up and feel bad for his wife.

MontanaMarriott said...

Banks and Harrelson

linnea said...

Yeah, after looking at the cast page Wes seems to be the only good candidate

Cathy said...

Wes is 12 years older than Jennifer, so I guess that would count as her being much younger.

MontanaMarriott said...

OOps, it says much younger so scratch banks for Jennifer.

Crystalrope said...

You have to think in terms of which characters would be working a lot with each other--Woody and Jennifer would be in many scenes together, Wes and Jennifer not so many.

Christine65 said...

I don't think it's Wes, with all his past problems...

I think Banks & Harrelson, it's a 13 year age difference & could totally see Harrelson being all method and such. And they would have a lot of scenes together too!

Mary said...

Much younger? I say Stanley Tucci and Jennifer

jw12 said...

Sutherland and Banks

bluebonnetmom said...

The guy is probably Wes Bentley and the girl could be any of the young girls in the cast. Stanley's wife is deceased, Woody's wife would kick your ass and Donald is just icky (old)to even make a possibility.

RocketQueen said...

It's definitely Jennifer or one of the younger gals. Banks is married.

lunaire said...

Hmm, the Lainey blind that Patty posted above did say it was method acting (but going overboard with it). Which two characters are romantically involved in the movie?

linnea said...

If we are thinking super mega age diff, Phillip Troy Linger was born in 64 and is currently married

Ida Blankenship said...

OOOOOH. AWESOME. I didn't even *consider* The Hunger Games when I read this Lainey blind.

I've got no idea for the actor, honestly. I like the Woody Harrelson guess, though.

Mooshki said...

Woody has an open marriage, so it definitely could be him. No way in hell Elizabeth Banks would be this naive.

The Black Cat said...

It's Jennifer Lawrence & ?
I'm liking the Donald Sutherland angle but don't find it creepy because it IS Donald Sutherland, he was so hot in Dirty, Sexy, Money - for someone his age. Way hotter than Keifer.

hunter said...

Wes Bentley - didn't he dump his wife years ago?

Layna Day said...

Another possibility for the woman: Leven Rambin. 21 years old, best known for starring on the daytime drama All My Children. Has dated older men in the past, including a writer for Men's Vogue. She's supposed to be engaged to some movie producer, but it's been a long engagement, 18 months or so. I see this being her more than Lawrence.

crila16 said...

It has to be someone young and impressionable. I'm going to have to go with Jennifer. Who is co-starring with Jennifer? It has to be a bigger part to be co-starring.

pomme said...

@Layna Day: your guess is interesting

it's true that this BI looks alike a copycat of Lainey 's yesterday Riddle

I'm with Layna Day, I think it's Leven Rambin and Woody. The other girl he has his eye on is Jennifer Lawrence--I can't see her falling for him. She seems too smart and level headed. Plus she's got Nicolas Hoult!

Tatyana said...

Isn't Jennifer Lawrence on-screen romance with a young hunk?

selenakyle said...

Sheeitt, I don't even know what Hunger Games is...

Thea said...

Nooo, I'd be so disappointed if this turned out to be Jennifer Lawrence. She seems so level-headed for an actress at her age. That said, she did become an item with her "X-Men First Class" co-star Nicholas Hoult (Beast) during the filming of that movie, so she might have done another co-star hookup here.

If this is Lainey's blind, it mentions the actor is into method acting. Woody Harrelson is a self-admitted method actor (http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/305852), so it could be him. However, in the "Hunger Games" storyline, the characters of Haymitch and Katniss are antagonistic towards one another and do not have any type of romantic connection whatsoever, so I'm not sure how the two of them hooking up would fit in with method acting.

The only characters with a romantic involvement in the original story are Katniss (Lawrence), Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (Liam Hemsworth). Aside from these three leads, Woody Harrelson's role would be significant enough to require him and Jennifer to have scenes together. If we go by the story, a lot of the scenes will likely involve mostly Jennifer and Josh alone or them with Woody.

Leven Rambin's role as a tribute in the story is small and does not seem like it would require any rehearsals or scenes with Woody Harrelson, so unfortunately I don't think it's her.

However, I hope it's Leven rather than Jennifer because messy love triangles between the lead actors could potentially screw up the Hunger Games movie franchise.

HannahPalindrome said...

Wes is divorced

Taylor said...

I agree with Thea; Leven's scenes are with the younger cast members. No need for rehearsing with an older actor.

MacVixen said...

I could definitely believe this is is Levin Rambin. she's sort of "out-there" and totally seems the type to hook up with an older man - married or not.

JJ said...

The most popular guess with Lainey's blind is Anne Hathaway & Christian Bale. I was thinking the Hunger Games when I first read her blind but Christian Bale is considered "method" and there's also this part....
These are big names on a big film with big expectation and there was already enough drama last time around. Which makes me think it's a sequel and maybe the drama- Heath Ledger.

beguessin said...

was it woody's wife that had the PPP club? I definitely see him as the guy. I want to think that Banks wouldn't cheat on her husband, so I'm ruling her out. She is one of my girl-crushes!

pusssykatt said...

What about Latarsha Rose. She plays Portia and she would have scenes with Woody, since she is Peeta's stylist.

pusssykatt said...

I think this and Lainey's b.i. are 2 different blind items.

pomme said...

the main trouble in Lainey 's riddle if they're Bale and Hathaway is Hathaway isn't a naive young girl and Bale's wife is with him since the begining of the filming set of Batman(in India and in England)

pomme said...

Woody Harrelson and Jennifer Lawrence?

Lelaina Pierce said...

Hmmmmm...intriguing!

Filming started here in May & Wes got divorced in 2010.

The main 2 leads are too young/not married.
Donald Southerland is divorced (and really...??)
Woody Harrelson has an open marriage (I thought)?
Stanley is a widower...
Lenny Kravitz is divorced....

I'm at a loss. Woody is the only one that maybe makes sense.

timebob said...

according to Wes imdb page he is remarried to a woman named jaquie and has a son now. I know anyone can add what they want to IMDB but here is an article noting he is remarried.

http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2011/06/02/upcoming_hunger_games_star_wes_bentley

Wes is gorgeous and happy he is back on his feet acting wise. I hope it isn't him. I could see what a bad path this could lead for him and Jennifer if it is him/her.

timebob said...

yup Wes Bentley is married here is an article from kneepads about it.

Lelaina Pierce said...

@timebob - Whoops! You are right! I missed the wife above the 1st wife when I was reading his IMDb page.

Grace said...

I'm pretty sure Lainey's BI is Scarlett Johanssen and Robert Downey, Jr. on the Avengers. The film just had a rumored delay and Sean Penn could be the B.F.

lunabelle said...

Sounds to me like it is some who hooks up in the book. Does haymitch (harrelson) hook up with Effie at the end?? I cant recall. Also does her mom end up with someone?

Wes' character does not hook up with anyone, I don't think. Who was glitters boy, they could be a couple in the movie but I cannot recall his name.

Stupid lack of memory. Grrr. Good books though. I hope the move does them justice.
