Blind Item #3

This Academy Award winner/nominee actress is set to be the next beard for this former A list actor who is now a solid B who has been flailing around for awhile without a steady beard. Our actress, who is known for her acting, but not much else, wants a taste of fame she has not had yet. She wants covers of tabloids and a new level of marketability and is willing to be a beard. It is not like she dates a lot anyway.

Jake G and who else?

Basil said...

Jake G for the guy. Not sure about the woman.

Cathy said...

I guess we'll find out soon enough by whoever Jakey is spotted with...

Lacey said...

Jessica Chastain and Jake G

Christina said...

Jake G and Anna Kendrick

MISCH said...

Jessica Chastain sounds right

Meg said...

Glad to see we're all onboard with the Jake G. guesses...Anna Kendrick as the beard?

Whyguess said...

Viola Davis, Jamie fox?

Dana @ What the Frock? said...

I thought Jakey G and Anna Kendrick right away as well.

Amy Grove said...

Jake G and possibly Anna Kendrick or Jessica Chastain.

djphob said...

Is Anna still w Edgar Wright? Am I thinking of the right gal?

Jolene Jolene said...

My first thought was Jessica Chastain, too. Jake G or Tom Cruise, but I guess it hasn't been "a while" since the TC/Katie Holmes split. So Jake G it is.

Topper Madison said...

Tom Cruise and Cher, part deaux?

katie said...

My first thought was Tom Cruise. Based on how quickly he started dating after Nicole. The Vanity Fair article is very intriguing.

FrenchGirl said...

Anna K is again&always with Edward Wright
Jake G &...



Jamie 2 said...

Jessica C was at the opening of Jake G's new play last night...

djphob said...

Think--what actress who is good do we know nothing about? Rarely if ever in tabs... No one is coming to mind. Hmm!

dia papaya said...

What about Jake G and Jennifer Love Hewitt?

JLH - I know he said known for her acting but just go with it, OK?

She has been out of the scene for awhile and doesn't date very much. She loves to be papped. Could get all the V-Jazzling she wanted bc he wouldn't care or go near it. Perfect match!!!

rhinovodka said...

I will be so sad if this is Jessica C.

g.strathmore said...

@Whyguess, Viola Davis has been married for a long time to an ex-football player. They're a pretty strong couple.

Renoblondee said...

Yep, I immediately thought of Toothy. I thought Anna Kendrick, but didn't know she had a boyfriend.

auntliddy said...

Jamie fox is gay?

NYCGirl said...

My first thought was Jessica Chastain, too, but I think I like the Anna Kendrick guess better, since there was that reveal about Chastain's privacy/secretiveness. Those traits don't sound compatible with the actress in this blind.

Sandy said...

Gyllenhaal and Chastain. He needs a beard, she's extremely weird with a shady, bizarre past which needs obscuring/shoring up (she's also older than he is but doesn't want anyone to know). A pairing made in PR heaven.

NYCGirl said...

Oh, and Gyllenhaal, of course.

Lala said...

I'm wondering what kind of connections does Jessica have if she manages to promote films without answering questions about dating and family planning. Every actress is confronted with that but the media seems to ignore that about her. Something's up.

hothotheat said...

I'm not sure Jake G was ever an A lister. Keanu Reeves? I agree Jessica Chastain for the Actress....

whocaresnow12 said...

Jake isn't gay. Trust me, he's not.

Agent Sometimes said...

I don't know, from the wording I thought Amanda Seyfried (spelling?), but I'm on board with the Jake G guess. :)

ginalyn61 said...

Jake G and Anna Kendrick :)

Erin said...

I'm with Lacey. I think we can all agree on Jake G. Jessica Chastain works with blinds where it is said little is known about her past.

Fijigrrl said...

This just over on Lainey (I know, I know, I'm one of the few who enjoy her :) )

http://www.laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/24683/Hollywood-Matchmaking-Jessica-Chastain-and-Jake-Gyllenhaal


@whocaresnow12 -- how do you know? any good stories?

Silly Girl said...

BCoop was my thought. Wasn't there some sort of issue with Zoe Saldana when they broke up? Maybe he needs to repair that image thing with a new beard. No idea for the girl, though. Could be anybody. Is Christina Hendricks in a relationship? She seems to be everywhere but I don't know anything about her personal life.

Doc Girl said...

Check out Lainey - she's on the Jessica & Jake train.

http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/24683/Hollywood-Matchmaking-Jessica-Chastain-and-Jake-Gyllenhaal

Mary Stewart-McGovern said...

Silly Girl, Christina is married to Geoffrey Arend (the "snozberries" guy from Super Troopers.)

Beth said...

Definitely Chastain. This will deflect from the lack of actual knowledge about her personal life and boost her profile.

Ari said...

i wanna be someone's beard :-(

Silly Girl said...

Thanks, @Mary, I had no idea! I recognize him, for sure, but didn't know his name.

Ari said...

I think Anna Kendrick, only because they were spotted together 3 days ago, no?

crila16 said...

@Ari....I like that guess.

Irma said...

I'm sure I'm totally wrong but I have a theory about Jessica Chastain's obscure past. Why might she be able to avoid questions about her past? Well a possible clue is that her original last name is Howard and she happens to look a lot like Bryce Dallas Howard. Maybe she could be part of that family but changed her name to make it in Hollywood on her own?

Jemtastic said...

Ummm, Jake G is dating a woman that isn't famous.

Silly Girl said...

@Irma, I thought they were the same person!! I didn't know Howard was her last name though? Maybe she's a sibling, or a 'love child'? Do the bios list her parents? Where does Chastain come from? Honestly, I don't even know who this gal is, or what she's been in, but I've seen pics and I really thought they were the same person (married to that guy from Fringe).

Sherry said...

My first thought was Jake but we've got two regulars here that dispute he's gay. AND why would he have been with Reece all that time? The popular rumor there was she wasn't so keen on his pot smoking.

BCoop and someone else.Jessica Chastain!

pinch weasel said...

Lainey has a piece on Jake and Jessica today. I'm on board.

VeryV said...

yep!

http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/24683/Hollywood-Matchmaking-Jessica-Chastain-and-Jake-Gyllenhaal

Unknown said...

Yeah, I would like one of the regulars who say Jake isn't gay to give an actual piece of evidence - not scientific or verifiable, but SOMETHING. "I once did him in a Burger King bathroom," for instance. "He dated a friend of mine prior to being famous." Whatever. Without ANY context, it's hard for me to buy.

Lala said...

After Tom Cruise and John Travolta Jake G. has the most gay rumours than any other actor. His relationshiops since Kirsten Dunst all look fake and there are just too many stories and blind items about him.

Also Lainey is an expert in selling bearding couples. She also is extremely intersted in talking about his "beard" in that article like she's giving hints.

Irma said...

@Silly Girl: Her IMDB profile says she's "One of five children of a fireman father and a vegan-chef mother with a food truck" and she's from Northern California. The more I think about it though and read her quotes it seems that she's just focused on the acting and not wanting to do the whole celebrity publicity thing.

Gabby said...

@Irma - I don't remember where I read it, but part of your theory is actually a common rumor referring to her past. i.e. the fact that she and Bryce look SO alike, her secrecy about her past/personal life - people were saying that Ron Howard may have had an affair with Jessica Chastain's mother? I would love to find the story again because it was actually fascinating!

Jemtastic said...

What proof is there that Jake's gay other than he hangs out with Jamie Fox and played a gay cowboy? By that logic, he's also a doper because he's good pals with Lance Armstrong.

That Toothy Tile/Jake G connection is wishful thinking at best. If you're in NYC and attend parties/gatherings behind the scenes, you'll have seen him with his girlfriend; it's very possible to be a celeb and not have your every move recorded for public consumption.

FrenchGirl said...

i know where Enty found this BI
http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/24683/Hollywood-Matchmaking-Jessica-Chastain-and-Jake-Gyllenhaal

@Jemtastic: i don't know if Jake is gay but during Berlin fest this year,he partied in gay aera

FrenchGirl said...

@Lala: Lainey wrote and said Jake G is straight many times even during her gossip parties . She wrote Jake G and Kiki Dunst broke because of Kiki's lack of involvement in real relations
According to Lainey,Jake G,Bradley C and Ryan Reynolds are straight and i think she also talked about Jeremy Renner but i never understood if she was ironic.
Enty wrote Cooper was straight and a woman beater several times (and again recently i think)and Reynolds was straight

g.strathmore said...

@Sherry, Jake G was with Reese, but there are rumors that Reese doesn't like sex that much so it was probably a good situation for her for a while for publicity.

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

I actually have a (completely unsubstantiated) theory about Jessica Chastain's "secret past" (bear with me) - two of the only things known about her background is that she's from Northern California & she attended Julliard on a Scholarship provided by Robin Williams (Who also lives in Northern Cali, right?). Maybe her "connection" is that she's either Robin Williams' illegitimate daughter, or (perhaps even more controversially) former (possibly underage) lover? (after all, doesn't he have a history of diddling nannies & babysitters? Wasn't one of his ex-wives originally his kids' nanny?) pure conjecture, but was something that crossed my mind so thought I'd share...

Zelda Zonk Garde said...

What about Amanda Seyfried?

Zelda Zonk Garde said...

Never mind forgot about the Oscar part!

CarmeliteLady said...

Note to all Gay Actors: NO ONE CARES. COME OUT OF THE CLOSET. LIVE YOUR LIFE. BE HAPPY. ENJOY MEN AS MUCH AS YOU WANT TO. DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO, LOVE WHOEVER YOU HAVE TO LOVE TO GET THROUGH THE NIGHT AND THIS OFTEN CRUEL COLD AND LONELY WORLD. BEING GAY IS NOT WRONG. THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS ACCEPT YOU AND YOUR RELATIONSHIPS. NOT THAT THAT MATTERS, JUST SAYING. STOP HIDING, AND BEING AFRAID, LIVE IT UP. HAVE A GAY OLD TIME.

PuggleMommy said...

She's married.

PugsterMom said...

I thought of jessica chastain first but she has had a lot of respectable press these last 2 years. I think the blind refers to someone needing more credibility and limelight. Like Amber Heard.

Zak said...

Jakey is having at it with an A+ comedian's wife. Cough. Didn't hear it from me though.

CK76 said...

Hmmm Zak, one that plagarizes cookbooks?

Margaux said...

Chastain for the beard

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Has anyone posted this yet? Jakey and Chastain, for sure.

julie said...

I thought Jake G was toothy tile? If he's not than who is? And why does Lainey insist he's straight? Is she on his payroll?

Lila said...

@Julie Yeah she's gotta be on his payroll.

Jake has a base of fangirls that defend his honor in the comments of gossip blogs. Just like the Twihards do.

"Jake is straight. Trust me."

OH ok.

Yawn.

ksus said...

using a beard doesn't necessarily mean you are gay, just that you have another relationship you want to don't want others to figure out. so...........if jake is in a relationship with someone (say a woman who is married) and he wants to distract from that he would need a beard.

KaySea said...

I'm on board with Jessica Chastain. The "known for acting and not much else" can refer to the fact that she's such a private person - her age, her parentage, her personal life, etc ... all relatively unknown.
