Today's Blind Items - She Wants Attention

This actress is the true definition of B list. Or she once was. She used to be everywhere. Look at a movie and she would be there with her quirky look and name and just adding glue to a movie. She has tried television in the past few years but has never really had her heart in it. She basically is living off the returns from a career which has never seen her bring home that one really huge paycheck. Always a critically acclaimed actress, she has never had that true popcorn movie role and at some point needs to work. Over the past few years she has been known for more things she has done outside the acting world. One thing she is desperate for again though is attention. She loves attention. She misses when people don't give her attention or notice when she walks into a room. By circumstances she has been forced to spend a great deal of time recently at home and not out. She loves going out and wants people to notice her. Not to clubs, but just shopping or taking walks. One of her favorite things to do when she goes out is to wear very few clothes. She will wear a shirt and shorts, but will make sure the shirt is loose fitting and leaves her very exposed. She likes to make an impression. She will drop f bombs in a children's store just to get attention. She will return her meal 5 or 6 times and get louder each time just to get attention. She has said that when she is on a movie set there is no greater feeling then to have people want to notice you and to fawn over you and to make sure you have everything you need. That while you are on the set you are the center of their world and that is what makes her happiest.

Sharon Stone?

Selma Blair?

Stephanie said...

Selma Blair is who I thought of... but it could be anyone really

Stephanie said...

Ah! Great minds and all karen :)

kriss_t said...

I thought Zooey Deschanel, but I think she still has a show on TV?

FSP said...

Illeana Douglas?

Cathy said...

Ooooh, Selma Blair is a great guess!

Selma Blair had that boob slip recently when she was holding her baby in a matching outfit! And another where he actually grabbed it. Maybe it's not just her beig a mom and used to it

Lauren said...

Random guess: Parker Posey?

timebob said...

is her name quirky too? if so i'll say Fairuza Balk she used to be everywhere for awhile and now nothing.

Selma is a good guess too, she looks so uncomfortable on Anger Managment.

Jennifer H. said...

Parker Posey?

hothotheat said...

Heather Graham or Rose McGowan?

I like the Parker Posey guess too.

Cheryl said...

I like the Selma Blair guess. She's been in a few big movies but never really took off. I don't know about the skimpy outfits though. She used to always wear Chanel.

My first thought was Heather Graham. She has also been in big movies but didn't have a role that put her in A list territory.

timebob said...

I hope it isn't Parker Posey she does those great parody movies where the actors are just vapid blobs of selfishness. I would hate for her to be her own parody.

Sarah said...

Chloe Sevigny?

IDoTheRobot said...

Random guess: Malin Akerman. Seems to be in every movie and just announced pregnancy. I hope not bc I love her!

A RESIDENT said...

Joan Cusack

SkittleKitty said...

I thought Parker Posey, too, for a bit, but she doesn't really seem to crave that much attention. (It actually seems to me like she's avoided anything mainstream on purpose, perhaps.)

I like the Heather Graham guess, though I find it hard to think of her as "glue" in any movie, but maybe. (Boogie Nights, ewww.)

Cheryl said...

I also thought of Parker Posey but isn't she big with the indy movie crowd? I thought that was her niche and she never seemed like the attention whore type.

nolachickee said...

I like the Selma guess. There's nothing about her that really stands out. She's always the costar. To me, she looks uncomfortable in most things I've seen her in. And I can see her being a dick to people in public.

sassyb said...

Does Juliette Lewis fit?

FrenchGirl said...

chloe sevigny

skimpymist said...

Molly simms?

figgy said...

Definitely Selma Blair. She was on that tv show "Kath & Kim" a couple of years ago about the mother and daughter living together that I *wanted* to like but couldn't. She has to stay home now because she just had a baby.

Too bad, I usually like her!

Michael said...

Who ever this is, they are in for a very rude awakening when they get older. Kind of pathetic.

All about Eve said...

I like the Selma Blair and Malin Akerman guesses, they both seem to fit.

All about Eve said...

That line about f bombs in a children's store is a clue that she's a mom so maybe not Malin so my final guess is Selma

Lucas said...

I'm on board with the Selma Blair guess. Isn't Enty always pointing out that she goes out and about just so she shows up in pap photos?

ButterKwup said...

Is Selma critically acclaimed?

I like the Chloe Svengali guess, because I think she's fantastically douchey.

g.strathmore said...

Oh, I don't want this to be Selma. I like her as an actress. She like the cross between Aubrey Plaza and Zooey Deschenel (sp?). I would much more easily believe this is Chloe Sevigny except she doesn't have children.

TSA said...

Could it be Kyra Sedgwick??? Gotta give my husband credit for this guess.

Beth said...

Selma Blair is a great guess.

Most of the other people mentioned are working in some capacity. Blair has sort of fallen off the scene, except for pics of her and her baby out and about.

ms snarky said...

I thought of Judy Greer almost immediately when reading this. She was everywhere during the 2000s, she did a lot of movies - The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, and was in 2 and 1/2 Men on TV, and Californication, Arrested Development, etc. But she's about to be in Carrie, so she has worked recently

Jay said...

Selma Blair photographed whle shopping in Los Angeles on Saturday with side boob visible...

Erinkella said...

I like the Selma guess, but just to throw another one out there....Christina Ricci?

Alma said...

Yeah i thought that was funny. My two year old stil does that! We cross the street so I pick my two year old up and hold my 4 yr olds hand. No hands available and yank he pulls my shirt down and lets the whole world see my boobies!

MadLyb said...

Oddly enough, Judy Greer was the first person who popped in my head, but I like the Selma Blair guess, too.

PotPourri said...

Selma Blair stars opposite Charlie Sheen on Anger Management...her career is doing just fine.

BubbleKitten said...

I like both your guesses. Selma Blair is an obvious for the recent pics. The Fairuza Balk guess was interesting though! I like it.

cdanluva said...

christina applegate?

Sara Bellum said...

@MadLyb, Judy Greer popped into my head to at first, until I read about the wardrobe malfunctions. I've never seen her dress odd in public.

I like the Selma guess.

Evil Kumquat said...

Why not Zooey Deschanel?

She fits "quirky look and name".

Blind doesn't say actress has children, but mentions being in a children's store. Wiki says she had a nephew born near the end of last year.

Wiki also says Deshanel has had dietary problems recently, which could account for her at home and not out.

tara17 said...

Like PotPourri stated, Selma Blair is on Charlie Sheen's new sitcom.

lc said...

Parker Posey. I can just see her dropping F bombs in children's stores. This is PP to a T.

janele said...

Not Molly Simms -- I think Enty knows her personally. I used to suspect that Molly was one of the more famous CDAN fans who fed him gossip.

Shallow Gal said...

first thought: Parker Posey. But since I'm terrible at these, I think the better guess is Chloe Sevigny.

MadMarlin69 said...

Thought immediately of Juliette Lewis. Definitely quirky. Also critically-acclaimed. Devoted herself to music (known for things outside acting). Just not sure about the rest.

codymagnolia said...

Definitely Selma..

Topper Madison said...

I read this as Bonnie Hunt, until I got to the revealing clothing part. She is always ALWAYS the best friend/sister/mother role, and she had her talk show.

"We're walking...we're walking..."

tealily said...

Gotta be Rose McGowen. She is a notorious attention whore.

yodelay said...

I thought of Judy Greer from the descriotion, but I have no idea if she is an attention whore.

Selma Blair is a regular on Charlie Sheen's new show, which is renewed and was in Hellboy & Hellboy 2. Definitely a popcorn role.

bookjacket said...

The Chloe Sevigny guessers got it. She was the indy queen for years but now is referred to as a fashion designer. She badmouthed Big Love while she was co-starring in it. And has a long history of wearing weird, untidy clothes to public functions. Definitely loves to shock (see Brown Bunny.)

JSierra said...

If this was C list and 5 years in the future my guess would be Miley Cyrus. Shoot what am I saying, this is her now.

Payper Maker said...

I don't think of Selma Blair as having a quirky look or holding a movie together. My first thought was also Judy Greer. And remember, she is constantly flashing everyone as Kitty on Arrested Development!

B said...

I guess the way this is worded I'm wondering if "quirky" is referring to the name as well as the look. I feel like a lot of the guesses, including Selma Blair, would not fall under that category. Chloe and Parker would...as well as Zooey.

katsm0711 said...

I'm very glad to hear that you hold your kids hand! The other day I saw 2 women and maybe a 4 year old barely look to make sure my car was going to stop at the stop sign while the kid did a run/skip/twirl thing across the street, hands free of course. I felt so bad for the kid.

katsm0711 said...

I also meant its extra nice that you risk partial nudity to keep your kids safe when crossing the street. That's love right there!

Rose said...

Judy Greer is a good guess. I thought Parker Posey. She was just on an episode of New Girl and she looked not good.

Kilt Mann said...

Selma Blair's name may be moderately quirky but her looks are 100% conventional beauty. She also has shown commitment to TV.

Ileana Douglas is a much better fit to all the clues including critical acclaim but no popcorn role. She was in everything from 1995 through at least 2003, before making the transition toward writing and directing.

PugsterMom said...

Christina Ricci

bookjacket said...

Chloe S was nominates for an Oscar and has won or been nominated for numerous other awards. Hence the critical acclaim description.

Flo said...

Selma Blair. She was shopping with lots of side boob recently.

geminigirl789 said...

Has to be Chloe. Definitely quirky looking and is really only known for fashion these days.

bookjacket said...

More on Chloe's recent isolation --she just spent five months in Manchester (UK) working on a SKY TV series playing a M-to-F preoperative transgender. It was an intensive, low budget shoot and she spoke of her time there as lonely, and of spending her off-hours going solo to the movies. Apparently, she did not feel comfortable with youth culture in todays Britain, and used the pejorative term "chav" to describe it.
After all that, Sky didnt order a second series.

Whyguess said...

Darryl Hannah?

Jason Blue Eyes said...

I thought this was Janeane Garafolo until I got to the part about the shirt and shorts.

dia papaya said...

I'm late to the game but immediately thought of:

Parker Posey!


She used to be everywhere and is very talented, but maybe too quirky to ever be mainstream.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I doubt it's Fairuza. She is not so much focused on showbiz these days; more into environmental issues and stuff.

When I think famewhore I think Olivia Munn/Kate Bosworth. They just both weren't in any big movies lately, let alone be the glue that sticks a movie together.

What about Kate Hudson? Most famous for being daughter of Goldie Hawn, dating Owen Wilson before he almost killed himself, dated lots of other guys. Now married to Muse-guy, must stay at home because of the babies.
Anyways, more famous for her personal life than her acting life.

Only big succesful thing she did was Almost Famous, after that forgetable rom coms. (And she was in each and every one of them over the last decade). Still no huge hit. She is on Glee now, which made me think of her first because of the word 'glue', sounds like Glee xD

caralw said...

Parker Posey doesn't fit because you rarely see pap pics of her and she's not known for anything besides acting. She was just signed to be in that Monaco film with Nicole Kidman.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Or Jennifer Love Hewitt. B list for a short while after some tv shows and movies, then disappeared. Most famous for getting bigger, complaining, dating everyone and getting skinny and talking about it.

Cuckoo Armadillo said...

This screamed Kirsten Dunst to me.

I really don't think it's Sevvo--HBO would have fired her ass right-quick if her heart hadn't been in Big Love.

Whyguess said...

Martha plimpton

Pookie said...

'quirky look'....what's the name of that one ukelele-playing girl? iirc, she was on some sitcom last time i saw her.

my second runner-up guess is kristen ritter...which would suck b/c i like her. i do doubt this guess a little tho, b/c i believe her '....apt. 23' show was renewed.

Gabby said...

My first guess while reading this was Chloe Sevigny. She is definitely "quirky," known for her very strange clothing choices, and has done a ton of indie movies. While she's been praised for her work in those movies, she really has never had a "popcorn flick." She also seems like she could get nasty at the drop of a hat, i.e. dropping f-bombs in inappropriate places. I feel like in the early 2000s she was in tons of movies, but hasn't been lately. Plus the TV connection - she was just on an episode of Louie playing a weird lady he met at a book store.

iamabirdnow said...

Juliette Lewis

ElRod said...

She was my guess too... she's tried fashion... I think she wasn't too thrilled about being on that HBO show towards the end... hmmn.

Hello Alex said...

selma blair came into my work (when i wasn't there) and i was told she was a huuuge pain in the ass, and if i remember correctly, had us remake her drink. This was about 2 years ago when she was pregnant.

g.strathmore said...

@bookjacket, I remember reading about Chloe being very dramatic during the shooting of that series. She told some interviewer that she cried when she saw herself in the penis prosthetic. I was like, "Really? You cried when you put on a rubber penis?" Most people would think that hilarious fun, but she has an emotional breakdown. Jesus.

jennifer tilly!!

Kloie said...

Parker Posey doesn't strike me as the showy type, though Selma Blair I could see. Parker did have lyme disease for awhile, which could plausibly be why she was stuck at home (or why she might not have looked so good recently - might have been ill), but I'd think a new mom is a more plausible guess.

revell48 said...

lauren holly

she did few movies where she was glue-dated some a list dudes

has to work to live ---

also meg tilly-b list didnt hie jackpot like sister

could see both getting crazy for attention

g.strathmore said...

Isn't Meg Tilly a professional poker player now? Or is ?that one of the other Tillies?

crila16 said...

Selma Blair??? No way. She's never been an attention whore. Doesn't dress like a skank either. Don't see it being her at all. Also, Hell Boy 1 and 2 are total popcorn movies.

Caitlin said...

Bai Ling. Definitely

Cuckoo Armadillo said...

I really, really love the Juliette Lewis guess. That is definitely what I'm going with.
