Bonus Blind Item - Parents Don't Care

As always on Fridays I like to point out that you can follow me on Twitter. The birdie is over there to the right ---------> somewhere for you to click on. Over there I write about things not on here and also have blind items not on here. Oh, and come back here on Saturday's because I reveal a blind from the archives. That is always fun.

I wanted to write this today, because I have a feeling this teen actress may be headed to rehab as soon as this weekend or next week. She needs rehab. She has parents who don't care what she does or when or who she does it with. When I say teen, I mean this actress is a teen, but she is not even close to 18 yet. She spends most nights in hotels with one or two guys she usually hooks up with. Her parents get their cut of her money which is all they really care about. Late nights? They don't care. Drinking and drugs? They don't want to rock the boat and it's not like she is addicted or anything. That is what they tell themselves. Our actress was red hot but her recent issues have caused her to be talked about for far fewer roles and the reason is producers are scared of what she is turning into. She is one big mess and needs help. What was B+ list and headed to A, is now in danger of sliding back to C. It is her few real friends that are pushing her to go to rehab, and not her parents. Our actress is resisting because she thinks she can handle it.

Chloe Moretz?

nolachickee said...

I second @RenoBlondee

Queen Tidbit said...

I'm with you on the Chloe Moretz guess RenoBlondee.

EDW said...

Chloe came to mind for me as well, but Im also going to guess Abigail Breslin.

EmEyeKay said...

Chloe has six projects in production right now, to be released next year, but isn't filming anything. Hmmm...

Brenda Love said...

Hello Chloe parents....WAKE UP DAMMIT

Frufra said...

You won't see me say this very often, but I'm saying a prayer for this girl.

I have a child the same age as Chloe; I can't imagine this - the train so far off the track at such a young age. Oy vey.

MadLyb said...

Hailee Steinfeld?

Beth said...

I don't know if this CGM. She's got a movie coming out next week. Would they ship her off as it's coming out?

perfecttt2 said...

screamed Chloe to me

Beth said...

@MadLyb -- That's her name! I couldn't think of the movie or the girl. Hailee Steinfeld

She hasn't been anywhere since True Grit, and everyone was saying she was the next great actress.

canadachick said...

seen a pic of her on a red carpet from this week.....looks fine? but who knows there have been rumours

EDW said...

I would also like to stir the pot by suggesting Elle Fanning.

sabrina said...

I will slap my grandma if it's Chloe Moretz. She has always seemed super grounded and comes from a seemingly supportive and happy christian family. Now Hailee Steinfield, however makes a little more sense. Especially the idea that she's sliding down in her B-list stature. Chloe is on the rise

billybob said...

Let’s hope her friends manage to sway her in the right direction.

EmEyeKay said...

Hailee Steinfeld is currently working though, filming "Ender's Game".

goheels83 said...

I've heard lots of rumors about Chloe sleeping around and partying hard...so many kids in Hollywood don't stand a chance.

I am really grateful for my "boring" and normal childhood.

RenoBlondee said...

Wasn't there a revealed blind that it was Chloe that was boozing and smoking it up at Cannes a few months ago? That's what made me say her.
Doesn't anyone else remember that?

Ms Cool said...

Aw, man.

DianaofThemyscira said...

Right b/c being a Christian or coming from a Christian family is a cure-all for everything and will protect you from doing drugs or sleeping around. Ignorance must be bliss.

donner said...

I dunno who this is, but I have read on that Chloe is quite the party animal...Hailee is pretty grounded w/ parents who aren't forcing her to act. But things change and there's no telling....

would Enty have said "Academy Nominated/Winner" if it was Hailee?

spacecowboy78 said...

Based on prior blinds and stories, sounds like Chloe. She's not currently filming anything, and all of her credits in pre-production would be giving producers jitters if this is her.

FS said...

Chloe or Elle Fanning. I agree both of them had lots of buzz. Hailee had some buzz, but she always struck me as the type that would be more than willing to go to college and come back to acting. Chloe had so much buzz, I remember seeing her name everywhere even though I had no real idea who she was.

crila16 said...

Chloe Moretz...first name that came to my head.

BigMama said...

@EmeyeKay - they are doing Ender's Game? OMG! I am so excited! I have often thought there should be a nice quiet place for these kids to go with a sub-momma to straighten them out. Ok, not really but sometimes I wish I could just hug these kids and then shake them till they get some sense. You know, like my momma did
Chloe is my guess

Beth said...

@Donner makes a good point. I guess I will get on the Chloe train.

125records said...

Chloe is booked to appear on several talk shows in the coming weeks and is co-starring in one of the highest profile films of the year, "Dark Shadows." She's also supposedly signed to play the title role in a remake of "Carrie." I find it hard to believe that anyone could describe her as going from B+ to C with that trajectory. Anyway, I think she's a wonderful actress so I HOPE it's not her.

Hailee Steinfeld is in the new Harrison Ford movie, "Ender's Game," so it looks like her career may be heating up again.

cinephreak said...

Im thinking Chloe, but I also like Elle for the guess. I feel like I've heard Chloe was a wild child, and that comic book movie or whatever it was she did, really showed her in a different light to me. I hope she gets help, I realllllly like her.

cinephreak said...

How old are they anyway

Topper Madison said...

I don't want to think about any of these little girls sleeping around. Very sad.

Me said...

aww, this is so sad. good that she has people around her that care. poor little thing.

Ingrid Superstar said...

I know "Carrie" has been remade to death, but that's still a pretty big get for a supposedly-rapidly-becoming-unhireable young actress. I guess it could still go direct to VOD. I like Chloe a lot - she seems like fun. Thank God I was poor as a teen(yeah, thanks...). Take my already lax parents and unlimited cash and I would have been snorting coke off of glass tabletops and shooting up for breakfast if I could.

I'm going to accuse Kiernan Shipka for this blind for no real reason except I like her name. SHIPKA SHIPKA SHIPKA!!!

Grey said...

Where are all of these Chloe rumors coming from? I thought she was almost never spoken of in gossip circles.

I too always thought she was super grounded and mature. Hrm

SueRH said...

Chloe's parents are a nurse and a plastic surgeon. That doesn't seem to fit.

Sherry said...

There were rumors of SOME kid drinking and smoking and every thought it was Chloe. Has anyone confirmed that? I also thought it was Chloe but if her parents are in the medical profession you'd think they wouldn't be so money hungry.

cinephreak said...

I checked out her Instagram, she has a picture of an iMessage convo using lots of the beer mug emojis. Im her age, and when I type a text like that w/ those emojis, it usually means I'm sharing my excitement w/ whatever friend I'm texting about that nights upcoming festivities.

Ender's Game is finally being made into a movie? Off to google to see who the director is, they better not mess it up!

I'm glad I read it before knowing all about Card and what a fascist religious asshole he is.

ms_wonderland said...

Chloe M looked quite healthy and perky at CimemaCon a few days ago, so I'm doubting it's her.

k8 said...

Amanda Bynes popped into my head when reading this. She hasn't done much recently (her last movie was in 2010 and she has nothing new listed on IMDB) and she seems to be taking the Lindsay Lohan path of self-destruction.

gradybridges said...

These Elle Fanning guesses are dumb. Her sister is in college and she is always filmed with her family coming out of ballet classes. Does that sound like parents who don't care?

k8 said...

Never mind Amanda is too old for this one.

ThisIKnow said...

I thought Amanda B. too.

Karleep said...

Just because her parents had money before she hit it big does not mean that they are any less money-hungry. I have worked in medical billing for a while and I find even the most successful doctors that there is never enough money in their eyes. BUT as medical "professionals" you would think that they would know about when it is going overboard and would not want their cash cow to be ruined.
I can sort of see Elle Fanning, but her parents seem pretty stable(though, looks can be deceiving).

jay said...

read an article about Chloe recently and she talked about her parents being strict since they won't let he date until she is 16. Might have all been b.s., but seems like that is 180 degrees from spending nights in hotels with two guys

cinephreak said...

http://www.yurock.net/actresses-in-hollywood-under-18/

first thing that pops up for actresses under 18 in H-WOOD.

But enty says not even close to 18, which makes me think someone under 16, putting their birth year at around '96-ish?

Abigail Breslin- April '96
Hailee Steinfeld- Dec '96
Saoirse Ronan- April 1994 too old now
Chloe Moretz- Feb '97
Dakota F- Feb '94 to old now
Elle F- April '98
Jodelle Ferland- Oct '94. To old
Bailee Madison- Oct '99
Joey King- July '99
Anna Sophia Robb, but she was born in '93.


these were just names I got from googling, some of the most buzzed about young actresses.

B. Profane said...

FFS, I have a fifteen year-old daughter, and if this was happening to her I would expect to be sentenced to two dozen of the cat and left in stocks in the town square.

Please not Chloe Moretz, she is a talented young lady.

dia papaya said...

My first thought was Taylor Momson. She was in the RP's the other day. Is she too old? Too lazy to IMDB.

WeeRamekin said...

Taylor is 18/19 I think....I thought of her too when I read this

cinephreak said...

I thought her too, but she's my age or a couple years younger I think she just had her 18th or 19th birthday... And shes officially dropped the "Actress" title and is now a singer so I think enty would've maybe mentioned that or that would've been a clue..? IDK.

Sherry said...

The Fannings are s protected by their parents I would have a hard time believing it was them BUT..I did read where they did not interfere with them when they were being interviewed by a magazine. Maybe they are totally hands off. Who can say

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I've read it so many times, but still have no idea, there are too many options -.-

I do think the use of the following words/sentences are clues: actress was 'red hot' and the parents don't want to 'rock the boat'.

I've looked up the movie 'the boat that rocked' en some shitty movie with cuba gooding jr, but no child-actresses in there..

Maybe those terms ring a bell for someone else?

So far Chloe Moretz seems the most plausible for me. I've heard drinking/smokingrumors and something about her teasing another actress on set with rudeness/cruel jokes. (only problem is that i don't know where i read it, so have no proof :P)

Selock said...

Oh wait...Chloe Moretz was the girl in Hugo?! Just watched that with my 8yo and we thought she was awful...sooo irritating. Ugh.

No idea who this bling is, though.

Selock said...

blinD*

Mooshki said...

As EmEyeKay said, they just started production on Ender's Game about 3 or 4 weeks ago, so no way it's Hailee. They cast the kid from Hugo as Ender, and I am ecstatic about that choice. They're doing a production blog at http://endersgameblog.tumblr.com/, and so far is seems like they are really going to do it right. Fingers crossed! Orson Scott Card may be an insane asshole, but I love that book to death.

Mooshki said...

Oh, and the rest of the cast is pretty amazing too. Hailee is Petra, Harrison Ford is Colonel Graff, Abigail Breslin is Valentine (probably rules her out, too, although she's probably not filming as steadily as Hailee), Sir Ben Kingsley is Mazer Rackham, Viola Davis is Major Anderson, Moises Arias of The Middle is Bonzo, and the kid who plays Alai is absolutely adorable. I'm a little skeptical of Bean. The kid who's playing him, Aramis Knight, looks like an asshole on his IMDB page.

msgirl said...

I could never get into the Bean books, but I did read all the Ender ones, and actually SPeaker for the Dead is my favorite.

Twin Fist said...

Orden Scott Card isnt a facist religious asshole you dolt. He is a chrisitan, a morman to be exact, and an intelligent, passionate man with incredible talent.

Sandy said...

I'm sure it's Moretz, which is sad.

Card is a gigantic homophobe and unapologetic about it. I'm fairly sure he supported H8. I refuse to see any movie made from his books.

Poor Justin said...

No way is it Chloe Moretz. The fight to star in Carrie was actually pretty heated. She won out over a couple of older, more experienced actresses. Kick Ass 2 is going to start filming this summer, she's likely going to reprise Hit Girl. Point is, her plate is FULL. And for her family 'not caring' her family goes everywhere with her. She didn't go to Coachella even though she wanted to because she had schoolwork. She also has several older actresses who see her as a little sister/adopted daughter who have worked with her and spent time with her. Many had troubled pasts, they'd be howling if she was pulling a Drew Barrymore.

ALL kinds of signs say this isn't Chloe Moretz.

I hate to say it, but it fits Abigail Breslin. Just turned 16, is working but went from rising star to just being busy. Focusing on her band more than her acting, that kind of thing. Also has lost a LOT of weight (more than just baby fat) since Zombieland.

Other than that, Elle. With Super 8, she was really rising. What since then? Anything? And the Fanning parents aren't known for being really caring about their kids (Hound Dog anyone?).

Karleep said...

Abigail Breslin is a great guess. Her mother is her manager so maybe that is where the money part comes in. She controls what Abigail gets in contracts and appearances.

Unknown said...

I absolutely do not think it's Abigail. I met her at a film showing here in Chicago back in November. Yes, she was with her mother. Abigail was normal, nice, funny and all around great. No sign of drugs or any sort of craziness.

cinephreak said...

LOL @ unknown FWIW when I was at the height of my drug use when I was 17/18, you never even would've known by looking at me. I have a 215 for medical reasons, and you still wouldn't suspect. Don't we all know by now appearances can be deceiving and seeing isn't always believing.

cinephreak said...

She's really starting to grow up and mature out.
http://cdn04.cdn.justjaredjr.com/wp-content/uploads/pictures/2012/04/abby-bday/abigail-breslin-bday-pics-01.jpg
she really is a beautiful girl. But its really hard to speculate on what teenage girl is into drugs... Girls can become quite skillful at hiding it, especially when they're just starting out, before the drugs and partying actually take a toll on their looks...

Has anyone started to drop a noticeable amount of weight? I went from a size 5/7 to a 0/1 when I was going through addiction. Way more than baby fat, I looked scary skinny.

cinephreak said...

Found this on Chloe's site though. The video she has is kinda weird... idk
"ChloĆ«’s approach to acting has been consistent: “I always try to find something in my own life that connects me to the character. The more I live, the more I find things that I can use in my acting.” She adds, “I have learned never to judge any of the characters that I portray. Sometimes that is difficult to do, because as a human being, we tend to make judgments when we find out information about people and situations. In order to bring a character to life, though, I find that I cannot judge her or I won’t be true to her.”"

IDK, if shes a "method" actress would she do those things to get a better performance? If she 'lived' her character? Her role choices are pretty controversial to say the least

hunter said...

Chloe Moretz

hunter said...

Chloe's supposed to be quite the little slutster from what I've read (sorry). No way is this Elle Fanning, that family seems to be very solid.

Maybe Abigail Breslin, I don't know.
