Four For Friday - It Hurt So Bad

It is another week gone by. Less than 10 weeks to Christmas. Which means of course it is just 11 weeks to reveal day. Of course every Saturday I try to do a reveal or two right here and blog all weekend so I hope you will come and stop by. Please follow me on Twitter. I am @entylawyer. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

It all started for this B-/C+ actress when she came home from work one day. Her new husband, who is an A lister now, but at the time was also a B-/C+ had been turned down for a new role. Our actress was a little late and she said that our actor jumped on her from the time she entered the door and grabbed her and slammed her against the front door. She says she could feel the doorknob in the small of her back and had a bruise afterwards for a week there. He kept his forearm under her neck and asked where she had been and who she had been with and seemed to think she was cheating on him. He always thought that. She had caught him cheating on her twice while they were dating and this was not the first time he had got rough with her. He had slapped her twice and was always calling her names. S**t and who*e were his favorites. He always apologized for hitting her. He never apologized for calling her names. The never ending verbal abuse if she was two seconds late or he had a bad day. Nothing like the charming A lister he is today. She says it is because of her that he is even where he is today because she introduced him to the person who gave him his first huge break. What did she get for it? Well that day with the doorknob in her back and then he started coking her. Really violently. Calling her every name in the book. Slamming her back against the door again and again. The actress says she has never had a more terrifying experience in her life and knows it is cliche but even though she had married the guy she had no idea who it was at the door and she just thought of him as some random stranger attacking her. She is pretty sure he would have tried to rape her but she was wearing jeans and she was not and is not a weak woman. She screamed. Loud. He was always afraid of people knowing his secrets. He backed off. She ran out. Never came back. Sent some people to collect her things.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito.

FSP said...

I hate it when people coke me.

Maggie Casey said...

Bradley Cooper

MontanaMarriott said...

I thought the very same thing JE/BC

*karen* said...

Love the Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Esposito guess.

Anyone else? I feel like this could fit a number of couples.

Unknown said...

Jeff Goldblum - Geena Davis

MontanaMarriott said...

Ok for shitz and giggles, Mimi Rogers and Tom Cruise LMAO

canadachick said...

read it as Bradley Cooper and Jennifer all the way through. Enty's got a hate on for him

jane3113 said...

The first sentence made me think channing tatum and wife. Boy was I wrong by sentence two! I will go B Coops.

Maddie said...

I'm behind the BC/JE guess. There have always been rumors that he got violent with her. And, IIRC, they were only married for like a few months.

VIPblonde said...

When I read it, I thought Tom Cruise, but he and Mimi were married three years; wouldn't qualify as a "new husband." Jennifer and Bradley were married less than a year. Sounds like it fits them

Turkish Taffy said...

I believe we knew this was coming. I think Himmm had hinted at it.

mell61 said...

Just to be contrary, how about Clooney and ex Talia... only married a few months.

hothotheat said...

I like the Goldblum guess. I know for a fact, from experience, he is a dick. Poor Geena.

I'd hate for this to be BC. Besides, I heard they divorced because she found him in bed with a man.

*karen* said...

Mell61, I thought about that, but he's A+.

urban chaos said...

I'd believe it as BCoop. Not sure about the gay thing but he gives off a vibe in those eyes that I have seen in an ex.

Jamie 2 said...

Clooney was married from 1989-1993, not a few months.

Roman Holiday said...

Isn't there supposed to be four people involved in a Four For Friday???

annabella said...

you guys are good. if it is b coop, then what was the role he was turned down for and what role was his breakout role?

I have no idea.

auntliddy said...

On board with the clooney guess

Patty said...

Cooper.

I would say Goldblum was A list when he was married to Gena.

dia papaya said...

I do not like men who abuse their power. That is all. Sorry this is my theme today (and not bc anything bad happened. Mr Papaya has been my hero all week!) My inner super hero is pissed off!

I want to know who this asshat is. You know he's still doing it!

Probably BC / JE

Patty said...

And since when does Enty *** out slut and whore? As I read this I thought it was anoter name for fecal matter then got stuck on the wh word. Took me a second to get it back in gear.

A RESIDENT said...

Turkish Taffy is right. This is old Himmmm news

nienhulm said...

Why do we never hear about this stuff in the mainstream? Violent asses like this shouldn't be protected, no matter how much money they bring in for the hollywood machine. Why do the exes never speak out? I've never been in an abusive relationship, so maybe there's a psychological factor I'm missing, but it's just disgusting.

g.strathmore said...

Damn, I've thought Bradley Cooper looked like a rapist from the very first time I saw him. I don't know that I'm happy to be vindicated, though.

crila16 said...

But Jennifer Esposito caught Bradley Cooper in bed with a guy, that's why she ended it with him I had heard. I didn't know it was cause he got violent.

crila16 said...

@Turkish Taffy...what did Himmmm hint at? I must have missed it.

Jamie 2 said...

From this list of the shortest celebrity marriages, Brad and Jennifer are the only couple I can see where the husband subsequently became A-list.

http://www.extratv.com/2011/11/01/list-of-the-shortest-celebrity-marriages/#shortest_celeb_marriages

Again, it's not Clooney. He was not a "new" husband after 3-4 years.

katie said...

Could it be Jenny Garth and her ex? He was a nobody and after Nurse Jackie, Twilight, is bigger now than she is.

He also strikes me as a jerk. And though frail now, she strikes me as a fighter if only for her three girls?

Jamie 2 said...

If it is Bradley C, he went on to date Renee Z. That girl sure can pick 'em.

ljsmed said...

Cooper

Kimberly said...

Maybe they have imaginary freinds

Basil said...

I agree with you all. I read this as B Coop.

VK said...

Cooper seems like too obvious an answer for it to be him. I like the Jennie Garth guess.

Kimberly said...

He reminds me of an ex.who could be his,phyiscal twin, comes across.as sweetest man in the world, throws your stupid.whore.ass.across the room when.everyone goes.home.

*karen* said...

@katie, Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli were married for a long time (11 years, I think) so he wouldn't be a "new" husband. Also, he's not A list.

Alma said...

Is that Bubbles from trailer park boys?

Renoblondee said...

Cooper is the new Affleck for guesses. I agree it fits this one though.

Alma said...

Jane, I thought Channing Tatum too but after reading more i guess not. That sucks, so wtf is bradley cooper? Gay or teeny peen or violent or all the above....if so then he must be a better actor than i thought.

VK said...

what about Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly? They were married 10 months and the "first big break" could be reffering to Dumb and Dumber...which she also starred in so maybe she introduced him to someone connected to the movie, thus getting him the role.

CamColty said...

They were married for like 11 years

CamColty said...

This is a good guess

FSP said...

@Alma - Si!

JSierra said...

This is confusing and I don't care either way. Could be so many couples, I feel like we have had this blind before.

Alma said...

FSP that is awesome! :)

coolranchdoritos said...

Wasn't there a blind item about Goldblum being really rough with the ladies - and his current girlfriend was photographed with bruises?

Roman Holiday said...

@CamColty that baby is adorable:) I want to bite his cheeks:)

shopgirl said...

So B.Cooper is A list? Okay, I'm out of it and so glad I have no idea who this guy is. Hope to keep it that way. (And that applies for both Cooper and the blind creep -- or just the one if that's the case).

VK said...

Is Jeff Goldblum A-list? And would he be described as charming?

coolranchdoritos said...

yeah that's the thing with Cooper, too. Is he charming??

Beth said...

Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Esposito

They were married for a matter of months and were on equal footing when they were married, though she was probably better known. (I think she's a little older and had been around longer.)

Also, she doesn't seem like someone who would take a lot of shit.

Alma said...

Don't! Ha ha. Same here though. Every time i see that baby "awwwww". Cutey.

Turkish Taffy said...

@ crilla: A recent one, if memory serves me right. Something about BC was the wrong answer for that one, but there IS a reason to think he is a jerk.

Amber said...

The blind everyone believed to be Goldblum described him as quirky or nerdy or something, and he's into a little bondage play.

This is definitely in line with the comment Himmmm posted warning Zoe - he even told her to call Jennifer. Maybe BC seems like too obvious of a guess, because Enty wanted it to be an obvious guess - just trying to find more ways to out what a horrible person he is w/o actually saying it point blank.

katie said...

You're right, not enough coffee today. He's still a jerk though, right ?

coolranchdoritos said...

hmm.. so if BC WAS the answer to yesterday's blind (that he was "stuffed in the closet") maybe that's where his rage comes from if he's the answer to today's blind?

yes. it's a stretch.

brittiany said...

The blind yesterday about the star who supposedly killed a lover. Himmmn said: Ffs.....Bradley Cooper.

lemonai said...

Wasn't it Himmmm who also said "ask him about Villanova?" or something like that?

Totally think this and the "Stuffed in the Closet" blind are related.

coolranchdoritos said...

Guys, while looking briefly for an answer I found this like - gives some options for sure but more importantly, I forgot how many of these people dated! Some of these photos are priceless!

crila16 said...

What does Ff's stand for?

Sophia said...

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger were the first to come to mind.

Karen said...

@katie, yes he is!

*karen* said...

@crila, FFS= For F*ck's Sake

Amber said...

@crila - "for fuck's sake". I'm too lazy to even type "Oh", so I always use OFFS. One of my friends just asked me what "offs" meant (as in plural of the word "off") and I had to explain lol

VK said...

They were married almost a decade. Can't be him.

brittiany said...

And now I have hurts si good stuck in my head. No bueno.

dia papaya said...

Warning CamColty, your baby looks delicious!

Roman: I want to bite those cheeks too. What is it about baby cheeks? Everyone says I'm a freak about this (umm, probably true), but I think baby faces and hands and feet look delicious.

Now that I've made everyone laugh.... back to the BI sleuthing. This topic is so heavy today. Blech.

goes in circles said...

Sophia
They were married for quite some time and have a child together.

Coriander Shea said...

Now it's my turn to stick my head in the sand. BC is so freakin talented. I remember seeing him front row in so many episodes of "Inside the Actor's Studio", he seemed so driven to soak up everything he could that it made me have mad respect for him. He was there so often that it was the subject of his opening monologue for one of his SNL appearances a few years ago. James Lipton was there for a cameo too!

I was totally rooting for him when "Hangover" became a hit too bc I felt it was well deserved (even though Zach G. will always be my fuzzy cuddly mancrush!)

Jamie 2 said...

I think the whole Jeff Goldblum thing (if it was Jeff, and I have no idea) focused on consensual BDSM, which is clearly not the case here. Don't mix apples & oranges, folks. Some people get off on pain. The woman in the BI clearly did not.

BTW, when Brad and Jennifer split, they had been married for four months, and Kneepads reported that they had been separated "for quite a while." HTH can you be separated for "quite a while" 4 months into a marriage? Something major had to have happened.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20037538,00.html

MAC said...

Enty had a blind about JE and BC way back in the day that alluded to the fact he beat her up. I read this with their names from the beginning. I'll see if I can find the old blind. I think this means yesterday's blind was him. It seems if Enty seems to tie a lot of his blinds together these days

Hendrix said...

Wow, what's with all the Coop hate? Everyone I know who have met the dude say he's incredibly sweet and charming.
Hmmmmm....on the outside anyway!
There is a gay vibe....and he def. was quoted as saying to many people that he was driven to become a major major star, even though his career took such a long time to take off.
The jaw surgery he had helped (he had a weak jaw until it was corrected.)
This would be pretty terrible if this blind and yesterdays were connected, but though I find today's possible, yesterday's seems outlandish.

kpist said...

FSP, that was funny

WW said...

I agree, this is another rage situation, like yesterday's blind. The two seem to be connected. And HImmm said outright it was BC. But... if it IS BC, what's the movie he did when he was new in Hollywood? Who is the older star who gave him advice to stay in the closet? And who is the other A list star also on the movie who faded from view because of gay rumors.

Mari said...

Loads of peeps found my father charming too. It was very different when you saw the real person, as my mum and myself can attest.

canadachick said...

not sure of the time but he lost a role in Everythings fine to Sam rockwell, the movie came out in 2009 but he may have autditioned in early 2007

Coriander Shea said...

OT guys, but does anyone know what the Brown's/Brown List is? I saw it mentioned twice on Twitter yesterday, but I can't get an answer out of anyone. It has something to do with agents, I think.

janele said...

4 for Friday:

a.) Bradley Cooper

b.) Jennifer Esposito

c.) Role he didn't get: Harvey Dent (went to Aaron Eckhart in Feb 2007). BC was married to JE December 2006; she filed for divorce April 2007. If this incident happened, the timeline fits as to when he got turned down for the role during his marriage.

d. Person JE introduced BC to for his first major break: ?

Aly said...

He was a newby when he was in ALIAS and supposedly was going at it with Victor Garber. That is where the gay vibe rumors started.

krk67 said...

@MAC -- is this the blind you were looking for:

Another B list actor, this time a former television actor who only works in films now. He is B list by virtue of his work, but definitely does not have the name recognition of #1. You would recognize our actor, but would be hard pressed to come up with his name. His recent marriage ended in a quick divorce because of domestic abuse. Never hit his wife until after they were married. No signs at all until after the wedding. After he got done beating her for the third time she decided to leave. Now for fun he is trying to work his way through every woman he can find in LA.

My vote is Cooper.

And he could still be closeted or bi. The cheating could have been women and/or men.

Ugh (because of the abuse and the cheating -- not the sexual preferences).

This smells Bradly cooper!

KSam said...

LOL...

discoflux said...

@Coriander Shea - That's the thing about sociopaths. They can be EXCEPTIONALLY charming.

FrenchGirl said...

Jennifer Esposito /Bradley Cooper

krk67 said...

Hell, after further consideration the lines...

"He was always afraid of people knowing his secrets."
and
"She is pretty sure he would have tried to rape her..."

...when applied to the Villanova comment could be the reason he left. Maybe he raped someone. Maybe he was outed. Maybe both?

Jolene Jolene said...

@Coriander--The Brown List is a list by some blogger (Temp X) where people nominate and vote on the most and least liked Hollywood execs and celebrities. I'm not sure how accurate it is because people can vote as many times as they want and it can totally be skewed. The 2012 list came out earlier this week:

http://www.tempdiaries.com/2012/10/the-2012-brown-list.html

MAC said...

Yes that is the blind, thank you. I really need to learn how to search this site better, as I tried looking for an hour and couldn't find it!

C.L.Russell said...

thats what i think too. I'm from near where he grew up and I long heard stroies about his temper

Aoife said...

She left and that is the best part of this blind.
I know nothing about BC but I've been reading this site a long time and remember that old blind.

Totally off topic: Johnny Depp dated Ellen Barkin?!

Coriander Shea said...

Well that would make sense considering one of the ppl on Twitter mentioning it was TempX, heehee. I guess I didn't put two and two together.

Thank you @JJ :)

Red Pandas said...

This reminds me of a very simlar blind item of sorts that I read in a domestic violence education class. Not a class in which I learned domestic violence, but like how to represent victims. I remember the perp being Sean Connery. The woman was some actress whose name I didn't recognize. Let me do some research and see if I can find the story online.

Red Pandas said...

For all you DMC theorists:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1043053/Sean-Connery-The-story-brilliant-deeply-flawed-man.html

It's not a recent story and it takes a while to get to the allegations of abuse made by Diane Cilento, but the story is very similar to today's BI. In the domestic violence class that I want to, I believe there were more details of abuse, such as Connery controlling Cilento's money (she was initially more famous than him).
FWIW, I think this is Connery even though the specifics don't match.

dia papaya said...

Where is Robin to send out the @himmmm signal?

I want to know if this is B Poop.

KPeony said...

I think this is Bradley. He's a jerk and this fits really well.

I think yesterday's blind was Tom Cruise because of the Fey Oiled Tush blind from way back when.

misspeg86 said...

hee hee good one @FSP

misspeg86 said...

Whoa that is some violent shit! Good on her for leaving. I have no idea who it is so I'll just go with the consensus.

misspeg86 said...

And OMG I cannot WAIT for reveal day!!!

it took forever said...

Himmmm! where are you!

LetLoveRule said...

Can I also applaud the woman for leaving and (apparently) never looking back? Soooo much harder than it sounds! She must have been so brave. Bless her, and those who supported her through it all.

AndyCane said...

Drugs are bad mmmkay

Kassandra said...

Sorry, this screamed George Clooney to me, because of this phrase: CHARMING A-LISTER.

I think it's George and Talia.

dragon said...

Clooney and his wife were married for 4 years. that eliminates him

dragon said...

Clooney and his wife were married for 4 years. that eliminates him

Kassandra said...

it says new husband...doesn't say they divorced shortly thereafter...am i missing something??

1Jazzimom said...

Good for her for leaving! She caught him cheating twice BEFORE she married him? Sheesh how long did they date?

MadLyb said...

@Hendrix - you just solved a blind there, LOL! So Coop was the guy with the weak jaw who wanted to become famous and would sob to his SO that no one would hire him because of his weak jaw. I think this blind is about him, but I suck at blinds and usually piggyback on other's guesses.

Scar Jo really ought to get with Coop. The girl loves dumpster diving (apart from RR, of course). Del Toro, Penn, and that latest guy who just dripped with sleaze. She is definitely attracted to Le Douche and IMO, Cooper is dripping with it.

UnicornsRReal said...

I remember being in a movie theater in Napa, CA to see The Hangover and BC took my breath away when he appeared on screen. I'd not heard or knew about him before. He made that movie. Then IRL, he let's us all down. Sad unicorns tonight.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

dia: Sorry, but I'm away for the weekend--going to a dear friend's wedding in NH tomorrow, & borrowing my brother's laptop (which is sitting on a box on his bed while it holds it...), so I can't send out the Signal. Please give him my regards if he makes an appearancem though--i promise I'll be back to chat on Sunday evening!

UnicornsRReal said...

OMG on Twitter, Jennifer Espisito just said she is getting screwed over on her TV show. I wonder is BC got her axed. CONSPIRACY!

https://twitter.com/JennifersWayJE

Alice Tate said...

It says she never went back and sent a friend to get her things. Also Clooney is A+

Austin Gal said...

Diane Lane and Josh Brolin

Mystikchic said...

I have to go with Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Espisito. I have heard him say in interviews that he was not a nice person when he was drinking. I have also heard that the reason they split was because Bradley beat her.
