Blind Item #1

What former almost A- list movie actress who is now still all movies all the time but has pretty much been reduced to indies. Ahh, she used to be a popcorn queen. The drinking cost her a lot of jobs. That and the complaining about wanting to do something more than popcorn movies. Anyway, our actress was at events twice in the past week and busted with booze in hand and stopped the photographers mid-stream and found someone who was drinking something that did not look booze and then allowed the photographers to take the photos. She said, "I will lose my next job if anyone sees me drinking. I just can't stop. I love it."

Kirsten Dunst?

evergrey said...

Yep, Kirsten Dunst.

Dori Goodin said...

Marisa Tomei

Barton Fink said...

Kirsten, probably. I wonder if actresses like her and Scarlett live the way they do because they have achieved the heights of moviestardom and realize that they will never make a decent film. The industry picks them up, treats them like royalty for two or three films, then moves on. I'd drink too.

Jamie 2 said...

Sure sounds like Kirsten Drunkst. She was at the premiere of The Bachelorette last week. If you search recent images of her, you'd think she was sponsored by Coca Cola, she's displaying the bottle so prominently.

libby said...

I hope this isn't Kirsten. I really like her as an actress. I want her to be like Drew Barrymore, a child star who stumbles a few times but eventually survives it all.

Kirsten D?

Alcohol gets a helluva hold on some people.

rejectedcarebear said...

Spiderman 3 caused me to drink a lot too.

eris hilton said...

I was totally thinking Kirsten Dunst.

Ryan said...

Georgina Wendt!

rejectedcarebear said...

djphob- classic avi! i grew up watching mr. rogers and its good to see him show us how he really feels.

auntliddy said...

I dont get drinking at all. As a teen, indrank a few times, and got migraine, stomach sick, hoarse. You also smell, taste like you ate a cotton ball. I decided drinking was not for me, i dont drink to this day. Again, i dont get the allure.

Ryan Gunderson said...

Definitely Kirsten Drunk

@auntliddy: But for some, drinking feels just so awesome while it's happening that you put up with the side effects. People with addiction feel more complete when drunk/high.

EmEyeKay said...

Had to look up the meaning of "popcorn movie". The KD movies I can think of off the top of my head don't fit that description. The last one I saw was "Melancholia", which was the complete opposite of a popcorn movie.

Roman Holiday said...

Like I said before Alchohol should be illegal! I am glad it is not though because I love it too!!!!

RenoBlondee said...

Yeah, I thought Kirsten too.

thenaughtyvicar said...

Kirsten Dunst is not known for being in popcorn movies. Definitely not her.

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

Um, the Spider man movies weren't popcorn flicks, naughtyvicar?!?

Bunni said...

And Bring It On, it's her. I like her, hope she gets it together.

KZoeT said...

Would Winona Ryder be considered former A-?

crila16 said...

Kirsten Dunst...all the way.

.robert said...

Are the people above allergic to alcohol or something? I might get a hangover if I drink way too much but why would moderate drinking cause ill effects?

Jennifer H. said...

The Spiderman movies were definitely popcorn movies. Wasn't she in Jumanji, too? Also a popcorn movie.

Could be KD.

Two beers or a scotch does something bad to me. I don't drink either. I drink other stuff but not much and not often. Drunk women get scary skin! There must be some similarity between the way scotch and beer are created.

Bacon martinis are good!

KittensRUs said...

Does sound like Sean Young. Wonderful person in real life but getting drunk and saying what everyone else is thinking has cost her.

Farm Girl Pink... said...

I am really bad at these... the only person I thought of was Tara Reid.

B. Profane said...

Definitely Dunst. She didn't do Melancholia for the sake of high art. She did it because she needed the work.

Turkish Taffy said...

I never liked Snaggletooth as an actress, but I feel for her. I was a drunk for about 10 years. Ruined my career. By God's grace, I met my husband, and he decided to take a chance on saving me. I knew he would leave me if I even looked at another drop. Too late to salvage my career, but thanks to him and God I have a beautiful home and a family, my health, and a second chance at life.

Bitchette said...

Tara Reid was never "almost A-list". My vote's for Kirsten Dunst.

As for alcohol, I was never a big drinker, but in the last year can't touch the stuff at all. I get wicked migraines if I have so much as 1 glass of wine/beer/etc. To me it's no big loss, but I can see how it might be an issue for others who genuinely like the ritual.

Sarah said...

Kirsten came to mind reading that. I really like her as an actress, I hope she can get it together. She's on a professional upswing right now, and has a cute boyfriend. Hopefully these things will keep her on track.

Groovy said...

I say Amanda Bynes

dia papaya said...

Team KiKi!

LOL @Carebear. Two times the fun! Spiderman made me drink too! And I often wondered what Mr. Rogers really thought of us brats. Now I KNOW!

haha!

Sian said...

Winona Ryder?

OMAMA is BROKO said...

I don't think it's K.Dunst.. she was just in Melancholia

Landy said...

I think some of you are misunderstanding. The blind says "has pretty much been reduced to indies" --i.e. Melancholia. "She USED TO BE a popcorn queen." i.e. The Spiderman films.

It's not suggesting that Melancholia is a popcorn flick, and that film is definitely an indie. Dunst would totally fit here.

dizzyeggs said...

i never considered kiki a popcorn queen, as she was in some really good roles before spiderman (one of my favs with denise richards dancing and singing with jesus- can't remember the name of the movie though). i'm going to guess winona as i know she is gearing up for tiff(per lainey) and there must be events leading up to the actual presentation.

smashbash said...

Me either. Give me a bong and I am set!

SusanB said...

I think whoever guessed Marissa Tomei is right - she's almost A list (didn't she win an Oscar?) and you don't see her in much.

As for making alcohol illegal, we tried that once, remember? Made millions of Americans lawbreakers and helped the rise of the Mafia.

Oh Brother! said...

If this is Kiki D., then I'll be definitely disappointed, but saying she's been "reduced to indies"? Melancholia brought her more praise and awards than ever in her career. She has upped her game considerably since then and now is choosing the most interesting projects. And calling her a "popcorn queen"? After what, a few box office hits? I wonder what ScarJo is then?

Basil said...

I can't really think that KD has been "reduced" to indies. Melancholia may not be a studio movie, but it was hardly slumming for KD.

I'm going to say Winona Ryder.

Kate said...

Kirstin Dunst. One of my friends worked at her and Toby's managmenet company when they were doing Spiderman and they called him to bring them 1 banana. Toby's house was three blocks down from the Sunset Strip and Pink Dot brings anything you want to your door but they called him and he had to drive up one banana to them. When he got there they both just stared at him then took the banana and shut the door.

nancer said...

there's a picture in the new vanity fair of kiki at a party. she's sitting with sofia coppola and it looks to me like she has a drink in her hand.

curlyhairslacker said...

@dizzy eggs, Drop Dead Gorgeous? I love that movie!

I'm thinking this is Kirsten.

Ryan Gunderson said...

Yeah your right those three spiderman movies were typical art house fills.

WUWT? said...

Ryan:
I was actually thinking Jules Kirby! :)

(still about my favorite post ever on this site!)

All about Eve said...

I'm glad your story has a happy ending Turkish Taffy :)

All about Eve said...

I put my vote in for Kiki, she was the it girl because of those Spiderman movies and then nothing and she's coming back with a lot of indie movies

Katie O. said...

I'd say KD is a great guess. And I remember, when the last Spiderman came around, she couldn't even be bothered to promote it. She did interviews but just acted like it was such crap that she was contracted to do another one.

NYCGirl said...

Huh, I was thinking Megan Fox.
