BuzzFoto Blind Item

This A list actor who has been A list since being a teen heartthrob two decades ago, is rumored to own a special property offshore specifically designed to grow weed.

Leo? Although, I wouldn't say he's been A-list this entire time. But then Enty considers Kate Winslet B list, so anything is possible.

Bnl1016 said...

that's awesome.

bluebonnetmom said...

I am betting Leo as well. He is taking his "Green" crusade to a whole new level now! ; )

MISCH said...

Wow...great

maggiemei said...

Leo is my guess too.
If you don't count 2 decades as "20 years" but just as the nineties- he has been A list since '97 with Titanic.

Bnl1016 said...

oh, and johnny depp

Cindy said...

agrree Bnl1016 -- gotta be Depp :)

Diane said...

Gawd bless whoever this is ... weed is the best!

The Black Cat said...

I'm going with Johnny Depp too.

spacecowboy78 said...

Leo makes sense when you apply all the clues in a technical sense - 2 decades as opposed to 20 years and as maggiemei said, an A list heartthrob. I feel like Depp was cusp of A early-mid 90's, then somewhere in the B's from mid 90's until Pirates came out, although this sounds more like him than Leo.

Sticky said...

Love this one. I'd say Depp also.

crila16 said...

I'm going to have to go with either Johnny Depp or Matt Dillon. Johnny being my favorite guess, because Matt Dillon may be more B+.

Ida Blankenship said...

Directions, please.

kris said...

definitely Depp on this one...

Mr. Depp owns an island in the caribbean

pomme said...

i'm with Depp team because of his private island and CRYBABY

Layna Day said...

Please send me an invitation, whoever you are! Heaven knows I need to take off some edge.

Ship said...

Leo was my first thought.

maggiemei said...

I don't think it is Depp, cause he was a teenage heartthrob 3 decades ago, and then muddles around in the B-list for well over a decade. He finally edged onto the A-list in the late 90's, when he was well into his thirties.
I remember lusting after him for years while he went virtually unnoticed in movies like Ed Wood and Gilbert Grape. No way was he A-list back then.
Leo, on the other hand, jumped straight from TV sitcom work to headlining small movies. He got an Oscar nomination at 19, and kept headlining larger movies until Titanic blew up when he was 23. This fits him so much better.

ChasingHeaven said...

I guess maybe I'm just clueless, but I don't understand why an investment this big is needed if you can just get a medicinal card anyway?

Aly said...

You guys are too, too good. Here is a youtube of Johnny Depp's house on an island in the Bahamas.

Bnl1016 said...

I just want to say my basis for Depp was because his teen heart throb status for me at least, was 21 Jump Street. Put him right on A list and that was right around 1990 which is almost exactly 20 years ago.

I think both these guys are plausible though. Leo to me just doesn't stretch back 2 decades. Just the one since Titanic was so late 90s.

But as someone said, it depends if by decades they mean 20 years, or by actual 80s, 90s, 00s. When I read two decades ago, I read it as 20 years ago. It can be taken both ways.

BigMama said...

I like the Johnny Depp guess. I also like Johnny Depp, but I hope he never invite Matthew McConahey or Woody Harrelson to the island or they will start a field fire before they even get off the boat.

ms snarky said...

depp or pitt. or both of them as co-owners

RocketQueen said...

Hmm, I like the Leo guess. And maybe it's not weed, it's hemp? He is an environmentalist, after all.

Daveb said...

Ms Snarky - Pitt didn't show up in films until he was 24. He might have been a teen heartthrob but it was strictly in his hometown.

Johnny Deep was 21 when he had his first screen credit and 24 when he did 21 Jump Street (if that was enough to make him A list). Again too old for a teen heartthrob.

So I'm afraid its Leo, Oscar nominated at 19, for the win!

angelina said...

Michael J. Fox?

cara said...

You don't have to be a teen to be a teen hearthrob. The teens just need to find you hot.

Kathryn said...

@angelina~smart....I like it, he is an advocate for medical use

Bnl1016 said...

agree w/ cara - teen hearthrob doesnt mean the actor himself is a teen. it means his fanbase is. similarly jason priestly and luke perry were teen hearthrobs while on 90210 yet they were out of their teens by that point.

gabriela said...

sooooo coool!

Atlchica said...

I like the Michael J Fox guess. Would you use pot to treat Parkinson's Disease?

Some other guesses.... Rob Lowe, Charlie Sheen

BinkyM said...

@ChasingHeaven: One of those medicinal pot cards won't help anyone who isn't in CA. Actors travel all over. Presumably they want to relax somewhere with their drugs.

I doubt Enty sat down and researched exact dates and ages for this item (he's often played fast and loose with them as well as "list" standings), so validating or invalidating someone for being off by three or four years or being a B- instead of a B+ is pretty silly. Cara's right that he doesn't need to be a teen to be a teen heartthrob. Look at Robert Pattinson, for crying out loud. He's pushing 30!

Ray said...

That is fantastic!

BinkyM said...

Huh. Google searches urn up lots of references to Depp and pot, many of them at marijuana sites and magazines, though he claims not to smoke much anymore.

I can't find any references to di Caprio and pot, nor to a property outside of California.

Michael J Fox has done nothing to make him A-list again in forever or so. Poor man.

This would appear to be Depp.

Master said...

Looks like Leo's got his own island, too. http://www.faconnable.com/en/corporate/blogs/owning-a-private-island/

BinkyM said...

@Master: ... that he plans to turn into a resort. :-( Why the hell does he feel the need to ruin it? So much for his being "green." (sigh)

feraltart said...

This is a Buzz Foto blind, Enty didn't write it. I think Brad Pitt.

BinkyM said...

@feraltart: Oh! I didn't notice! My bad! I have no idea how BuzzFoto ranks stars, so I can't begin to guess at who they might think is "A-list," though Brad Pitt most certainly is. He fits the "A-list for two decades" part (back at the start of that, he had "Thelma and Louise," "A River Runs Through It," "Kalifornia," "True Romance," "Se7en," etc), and he's a well-known pot smoker. If he owns an island, then we'll have two excellent candidates.

Bnl1016 said...

I think Brad Pitt is a good candidate too.

I'm not sure it'll be an island thats searchable/provable that the guy owns though. If I were that famous and wanted to buy an island soley for harvesting pot I'd think I'd try to take some extra precautions to make sure its not public knowledge that I have said island. Other islands (in Depp's case) sure, but a pot island, I'd be a little more careful about. I think if it were that public, it wouldn't have to be a blind item.

However, Pitt does indeed have an island I believe. I thought he and AJ bought one of The World islands over off of Dubai.

Pitt and Depp def the two mostly likely, IMO

B. Profane said...

What's more plausible is that this star is a real ganja connoisseur who has a high-end grow room ("special property") installed where some very trusted staff (ah, what a job to have!) cultivate selected MJ strains. People who are into that are almost like oenophiles.

Sounds like Depp.

B. Profane said...

@von -- Winslet is Enty B-list because, excluding Titanic, the grosses of her films have been quite mediocre. Speaking of which, welcome to the A-list, Kristin Wiig! A-minus, I suppose.

BinkyM said...

Hmph. Rethinking this. Was Pitt ever a "heartthrob"? I remember women and men wanting to bang his brains out, but teens weren't the audiences for his early work. For what would he have been a "heartthrob"? He had single appearances on a small handful of TV shows (one of which was "21 Jump Street"!), but otherwise, there's nothing on his resumé that teens watched.

It looks as if we're back to Depp again.

(Brad Pitt currently has 27 projects in development. HOLY CRAP.)

Mooshki said...

I don't think Pitt was a teen heartthrob. And I doubt Depp has a big pot farm on his island since he lives there with the kids a lot of the time. I vote Leo.

white lorelei said...

Depp. Depp. Depp.

sunnyside1213 said...

Depp owns an island.

B. Profane said...

Depp owned the Viper Room and was close friends with Hunter Thompson. Leo is buddies with Marty Scorsese. Based on that, which of the two would you expect to be cultivating ganja on his private island?

Like I said, the BI is probably referring to a high-tech grow room, not a "pot farm." Could easily be kept hidden from the kids.

First off, that's a BuzzFoto blind. And RPatz is only 25.
