Four For Friday - Every Director Has Had Her

It is Friday which means it is announcement time. I will be here all weekend blogging and will have a reveal or two for you tomorrow. For those of you who blow through this without reading, you might miss that next week sometimes will be the annual MV anniversary clue and the clue will be objective rather than subjective. Not sure what day yet next week, but I will let you know on here and on Twitter. Follow me @entylawyer.
Don't forget this weekend the time changes and fall back sucks for getting dark early, but if you go to a good bar they will let you drink an extra hour.

This actress is B list. probably the definition of B list. Even though she has been a lead actress in lots of movies, she still has to work hard to make sure she gets roles. Not as hard as some other people. If you have ever seen this very attractive actress in anything, you might have asked yourself how she got the role. She is a good actress, but she is not a great actress. She tries to make films which will get her nominated for things, but they never do and then she has to go back to doing what she does best. F**king directors for parts. The funny thing is that she never has to audition, but she is usually in the mix of two or three people who look fairly identical to her. She knows that her reputation precedes her though and that she will get the role if the director is straight and not too happily married. It started about a decade ago. She came out of nowhere really and landed a huge role in a huge movie which put her name on the map all because she made it very clear to the very married director that she would be happy to have sex with him as much as he wanted. The director who is A list is not known for his good looks and he jumped on the chance. You never saw a happier guy during filming. Our actress thought she could suffer through a few months of sex for what was turning into almost $500K  a movie and letting her have a chance to make serious movies without having to have sex with directors. She has never really had a boyfriend because she just goes from one director to the next. 2 or 3 months with a director then takes a break for a year and then gets another role and a director. A decade of doing this and our actress has a very solid career and one that you scratch your head and wonder how she got the role, but now you know exactly how she got it and she won't be shy about admitting it if you ask her either.

If she's not shy about admitting it, why is this a blind?

FSP said...

@Amber - exactly!

canadachick said...

i want to say Marisa Tomei? But she's a pretty good actress....

Mhdz said...

@canadachick That, and Enty mentioned that the actress never gets nominated for anything while Maria Tomei has an Oscar.

Vera L- said...

Jessica Chastain popped into my head.

Ricca said...

Uma Thurman?

Vera L- said...

Rosario Dawson, big break was Kids when she was 18, her filmography has lots of "artsy" movies...

(btw, I'm terrible at this, thus my earlier guess)

*karen* said...

I thought of Jessica Chastain, too, but she is one who would probably never talk about it.

BeltyPoo said...

Amanda Seyfried?

Brian said...

Mena Suvari with her sudden arrival on the scene with American Beauty.

KatL said...

What's the story on the annual MV anniversary clue?

Jolene Jolene said...

Jessica Chastain just popped up a year or two ago with Tree of Life and The Help. She was never a lead in anything before that. It says this one got a big break with a huge movie about 10 years ago. Not her.

Sparkwee said...

Anne Hathaway... Movie that put her on the map - Princess Diaries. Came out in 2001... about a decade ago. Married director - Garry Marshall. Ew.

AKM said...

"...and the clue will be objective rather than subjective."

Dumb question...how COULD a clue be subjective rather than objective? Haven't all the clues been actual facts about MV, which are completely objective? What am I missing here?

Rigby said...

Both Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway have been nominated for Oscars. So it can't be them.

Dee Lurker said...

I don't get if we are supposed to like he-should I be thinking of chics I think are talented but or not?

Ingrid Superstar said...

(Sadly) Rose MacGowan? She's a survivor, that one. Deserves better.

sassyb said...

Keira Knightley?

dia papaya said...

What about Heather Graham?

Jamie 2 said...

Definitely not Anne H. She's had two multi-year LTRs, with that Italian fraudster and then with her current husband.

lazyday603 said...

Jessica Chastain may be mysterious in every way but why she is all of a sudden in every film is because she is an exceptional actress. And she's Oscar nominated. Doesn't mean she doesn't sleep with directors. It does mean she doesn't have to sleep with anyone to get good roles.

Ingrid Superstar said...

And by deserves better, I also mean deserves to have her name spelled correctly. Rose McGowan.

Renoblondee said...

I like the Heather guess @dia
The blind says this person has never really had a boyfriend and so many of these guesses are about actresses that are married or have boyfriends. Heather never really has.

Rigby said...

Keira Knightley was nominated for a BAFTA and a Golden Globe for Atonement, so I don't think it could be her.

Chaparra-rulz said...

Kirsten Dunst-Spiderman (2002)

*karen* said...

Kirsten Dunst didn't really come out of nowhere, though, did she? She was a child actress.

Jolene Jolene said...

I thought Kirsten Dunst, too, but wasn't she a kid actress? She was rather big long before Spiderman. I think the big clue is the woman isn't a very good actress who gets lead roles...Keira Knightley, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain...they're all pretty fantastic actresses.

Roman Holiday said...

Fijigrrl said...

Kirsten D. - pretty significant child actor career, don't think it's her. Trying to think of an actress who just came onto the scene about 10 years ago... Having a serious case of Friday Brain.

Jennifer H. said...

So if this actress has never really had time for a boyfriend in these past ten years, then that would mean she has not been married during that time, either. It could also mean that she has had girlfriends, but I take it more to mean that she hasn't had a personal love life.

I'm trying to remember who all hasn't been married or in a serious relationship in the past decade AND who hasn't even been nominated for a big acting award who just appeared about ten years ago. I can't think of anyone who really fits.

Kiera Knightly? She just got married or something though, right?
Penelope Cruz?
Hmmm. I don't know!

Vita19a said...

Rosamund Pike - Die Another Day

ABlake said...

Heather dated Adam Ant in the 90's. He actually wrote the song "Wonderful" about their relationship.
She was also a BI reveal for being all over a guy at least 10 years younger than her at some point this year. Not that it means he was her bf or anything.
Also, Boogie Nights was late 90's, wasn't it?
That said, no idea.

dia papaya said...

I really think this is Heather Graham. I went to imdb and researched. She's been in a lot of films, even headlined a few, but doesn't have huge success. You never hear about her having lots of BFs. I can only think of Hearh Ledger and that was short and probably an open relationship.

Can't cut and paste all imdb list. She was born in 1970 and has been working steadily for years. And I think she's known for her sexiness, ahem Boogie Nights?

PuggleMommy said...

Chastain is a good actress, though.

Apocryfool Jones said...

Heather Graham's first role was Diggstown, courtesy of her relationship with Janes Woods, in 1992 (or Lucense to Drive in 1988, to be more precise- man, she's old school!), and that's almost 20 years ago. I thought of her at first, too, but I think the language if the blind indicates someone younger.

Jennifer H. said...

And if this is someone always trying to win awards, then she probably isn't in a bunch of blockbuster-ish popcorn movies. Those don't garner acting awards. She's probably in a lot of *dramatic* roles. Those are usually the kinds of movies I don't like. Life already has enough drama anyway.

PuggleMommy said...

Word. I like Jessica Chastain. Very talented.

nancer said...

heather graham was with ed burns for awhile.

david91 said...

if this is heather graham, the movie cant be boogie nights. PTA wasnt married back then, and she only had a supporting role in it.

we should look for an actress, who does more commercial/blockbuster movies and is primarily known for good looks.

PuggleMommy said...

Love it!

alabrava said...

Not Mena Suvari, and Heather Graham's been around more than 20 years

TruInNYC said...

Radha Mitchell

DIXIECHICK (but not the hated kind) said...

Kathy Bates and John Cameron - Titanic... ;)

PuggleMommy said...

She was in Twin Peaks too! She dated Ed Burns for a very long time as well.

spacecowboy78 said...

Heather Graham has been around since the late 80's as someone above said; I first recall her in License to Drive with Corey Haim. Since that's almost 25 years ago, I don't think this is her.

Lisa said...

It can't be Keira Knightly. Her first big role was "Bend it like Beckham" which was directed by an Indian FEMALE.

tara17 said...


Curious about this, but can't figure who fits all clues:

- Huge role out of nowhere for kind of ugly A-List director about 10 years ago (so not known before 2000 for sure)

- Doesn't have to audition, but 2-3 actresses have the same look

- Never really had a boyfriend.

- Currently has solid B-List movie career

Snit said...

@ dia papaya

I immediately thought of Heather Graham, too, but I couldnt remember her name.

kelly said...


LOL @dixiechick!

ABlake said...

Kirsten Dunst?
I know she did stuff earlier, but Spiderman is really what put her 'post child actress' career on the map.

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

This is a tough one but I love reading all the great guesses!!!

ButterKwup said...

But Ed Burns is a director. Heather still mostly works, right?

ABlake said...

..or Liv Tyler. Peter Jackson is A list and certainly not known for his looks. Unless you like hobbits.

Melpomene25 said...

Haha! Pimp that cooch out girl! Thanks for the laugh!

Sugar said...

Cameron Diaz? It's all I got.

Melpomene25 said...

It's not a dumb question at all!! When I read that I was like what the what??? Someone please decipher!!

astabinthedark said...

shannyn sossamon?

Lisa B. said...

I was thinking Naomi Watts, with David Lynch and Mulholland Drive, The Ring, Gore Verbinski, King Kong Peter Jackson...
She hasn't had many boyfriends, but hmmmm is with Liev Schreiber...

Apocryfool Jones said...

There's a visual I wish I could get put of my head :)

Apocryfool Jones said...

So who's an ugly/semi-ugly A-list director?

NYer said...

Doesn't fit the no BFs but scarjo came to mind.

Kendra Muenter said...

A list directors not known for their looks:
Quentin Tarantino

Here is the IMDB list of the top directors for the past 20 years...
http://www.imdb.com/list/S7_47YXgjLU/

Quentin really does just jump out on that list.

Amy Grove said...

Which B-list actress who has been around for 10 years has "never really had a boyfriend"? That shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

spacecowboy78 said...

QT isn't married though, and hasn't been. This director is.

Debutante said...

What about Amy Smart ? A part of the clue says she is one of 2 or 3 identical actresses. I used to always confuse ELizabeth Banks, Amy Smart and one other blond whose name I can't think of right now....

LemonX said...

If she were a little older, I'd say Anna Kendrick. Can't figure out how she gets the roles she does.

Wild guess: Rachel McAdams and Nick Cassavetes who directed The Notebook.

Amy Grove said...

Erika Christensen was meandering through some forgettable tv appearances when she got Traffic in 2000. She would've been 18 at that point. Huge movie. Steven Soderberg, who has fathered a love child out of wedlock while he was filming in Australia. Not exactly a looker.

VIPblonde said...

I've spent the last ten minutes googling "ugly directors." Nothing jumps out so far :/

ABlake said...

Yeah..Peter Jackson is married, James Cameron is married..
I was thinking Naomi as well Lisa but she's been with Liev for years. Also I retract my guess of Liv, she's married as well.

Fijigrrl said...

MV = millivanilli - one of Enty's longest standing blinds. He reveals a new clue every year. In short (and correct me if I'm wrong), it's about a huge recording artist who doesn't actually do her own singing. Enty knew/represented the real singer not the famous one. Part of what Enty insisted on was a signed gold record with both of their signatures - real singer/famous lip sync-er.

I believe the most popular guess is JLo as the singer.

ABlake said...

I would go with that guess LemonX, but didn't she date Gosling for a few years?

White lilly said...

@Kendra, I think QT looks are pretty distinctive

I was going to say Mira Sorvino, but she debuted in 1995 and is married... got nothing

Fijigrrl said...

@LemonX agree about Anna Kendrick. I just don't get it.

MadLyb said...

@Roman Holiday - LMAO!

My first thought was Uma, so I'm jumping on that guess. Can't be Naomi Watts - she's actually a pretty good actress. Besides, I'd totally hit David Lynch and he wouldn't even have to give me a part.

Apocryfool Jones said...

She could be the subject of an 'Every Costsar Has Had Her' BI, maybe, but not director! :)

tara17 said...

Amy Smart has been working since '96. She's pretty, but imo works because she's a good actress, not due to looks. This fits a Jessica Alba/Biel situation, beautiful but wooden - but someone who became famous about 10 years.

tara17 said...

*10 years ago.

tara17 said...

Can't be Uma, (1) she's had long-term boyfriends (2) famous since at least '88, Dangerous Liaisons. Gah, it's like people don't take the clues serious, c'mon ;P (kidding of course)

Meagan said...

I'm really not good at these, but what about Selma Blair. The big role being Cruel Intentions (1999)? The director is Roger Kumble, who is married but I can't see when he married. She is petite and brunette-- lots of actresses have that look-- and though she was married from 2004-2006, she is now single and you never really hear about her relationships.

ABlake said...

Top ten movies (sorry, don't know how to link)
It gives the director's name and stars names.

2001
http://www.imdb.com/year/2001/

2002
http://www.imdb.com/year/2002/

alabrava said...

Gretchen Mol anyone?

dia papaya said...

Gretchen Mol is a good guess, but wasn't she one of Harvey's girls?

Really sad that there are SO many possiblities. Am also liking the Erika Christensen and Amy Smart votes.

I know Heather Graham has technically been acting more than 10 yrs, but we all know that Enty's idea of time is somewhat scewed. That's why I still think this could be her. Even though everyone has pointed out why is can't be her. Na Na Na, not listening *hands covers ears, sticks tongue out* ;)

goes in circles said...

I dont know if it is Anna Kendrick, but ita. I don't get her appeal. She looks like Blossom and I don't think she is a good actress. Was it NYE i just saw her in? She was horrible.

lostathome said...

Oh how I wish this could have been ScarJo.

.robert said...

G. Mol has her own series of blinds.

White lilly said...

@dia, lol!!!

goes in circles said...

No, it was another wonderful ensemble movie...what to expect.
She hasnt been around long enough for this to be her.

Lisa B. said...

Not sure if it makes a difference but Erika Christianson is a $cientologist.

MAC said...

I thought it was ScarJo until the relationship part of the blind. I remember her popping on the scene in Lost in Translation, but I guess she did do movies when she was a kid.

mell61 said...

had a look on IMDB for top 50 movies 2001-04 and while a few names hopped out the details didn't, the only one that had me think 'maybe' was Emmy Rossum, she had Phantom of the opera and day after tomorrow, 2 big production, and then every year or so anohter arty movie. She was married for about a year but not much details on her love life

Amy said...

Carrie-Anne Moss hit huge as Trinity in the Matrix and was in Memento and Chocolat and all kinds of award-bait stuff and is kind of exactly what I think of as the epitome of a B list actress but she doesn't seem to fit, she's married.

msgirl said...

Hey I also get the blondes mixed up - Amy Smart , Amy Adams, etc.

LottaColada said...

Not to mention she is recently married. Her hubby is pretty hot and great with his hands too.

Sarah said...

All the directors are ugly or they would act, except for the actors turned directors. Lol
Rosario is a good guess but I don't know any actresses who look anything like her.

KLM said...

Hi all - finally got my Internet back up after Sandy. NYC is crazy!!!

I am liking the Erika Christensen guess for this one - that sounds pretty accurate...

BitterBlondin said...

I thought the Scientologists sort of ruled over Erika Christensen's career.

FalseProfit said...

Keira Knightley

MinnieSaSa said...

Kevin Smith is in Random Photos. If he's the unattractive dirctor who is the B list actress?

BitterBlondin said...

What about Kristanna Loken? She came out of nowhere and starred in Terminator 3 in 2003. The director Jonathan Mostow fits the description. Don't know if he is/was married though.

libby said...

Spiderman did not put Kirstin's name on the map, as Enty puts it. She did not come out of "nowhere" 10 years ago. Everyone knew her name. Her name (and the fact that she was still talented, but now legal and pretty with big natural cans) got her the part in Spiderman. Also, she dated Jakey G. forever, and usually has a boyfriend, famous or not.

Some of the guesses are way too famous and/or talented to be this blind, I think.
Heather Graham would fit really well (no relationships), but the timeline is all wrong.

I'm stumped.

libby said...

My first thought is that she must be a Blonde, with light eyes. The air in LA is thick with them! I think Blondes are considered the most often interchangeable, by far.
Maybe Asian chicks, too, I'm sorry to say.

Not Lucy Lui? Right?

libby said...

I wasn't promoting people as interchangeable, i was saying that's how PERVY DIRECTORS* think.

I'm totally hanging out here to get out of yard work. I'm hopeless.

didi67 said...

Rosario Dawson is dating Danny Boyle....

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2226331/Danny-Boyle-wanders-desolate-New-York-streets-girlfriend-Rosario-Dawson.html

msgirl said...

Nooo it can't be Lucy Lui - isn't she active in sex trafficking stuff?

hothotheat said...

Selma Blair dated one of the oddly named Zappa Children for several years. Probably not her.

This should be easy with the no longer term relationship clue....Lori Petty? (not sure why that name popped into my head......)

bobbi_1025 said...

@bitterblondin- Loken was married to her former co-star from Painkiller Jane for like a year and half. Plus, basically every movie she has been in the past few years has pretty much gone straight to DVD.

News said...

Belive it is cameron diaz

Belive it is cameron diaz

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

This is a tough one, I don't think anyone's guessed it right yet - all of the guesses so far don't really fit when you look at all the clues. I'm stumped.

Kiki K said...

Eva Mendez was my first thought

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

Cameron Diaz doesn't fit because she's been around well over a decade & has had at least a few long-term boyfriends (Timberlake for 3-4 years, etc.)

I kind of like the Lucy Liu guess - never had a BF I can think of, did "Kill Bill" w/ ugly A-list director QT, and you coukd possibly argue the "interchangeable" thing is a dig at how a lot of caucasians think all Asians look alike...but, she was around already ( Charlie's Angels, lotsa TV) before " Kill Bill", so does she really fit?

So, I guess I've still got nothing...

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

Eva Mendez has been w/ Ryan Gosling for a while...

Dramamonkey said...

What about Erika Christensen's doppelganger Julia Stiles? She was 18 when 10 Things I hate About You came out and sort of made her a (relatively) big name. She did a bunch of awesome/crap teen rom/coms, and it seems like every few years she gets something that makes her more recognizable (Bourne Trilogy, Dexter)

She started out doing 2-3 (or more) Movies/shows a year from 1998 through 2004, and then maybe one thing a year.

Dramamonkey said...

except I don't think any of the directors she's worked with are A-List (and/or known for their looks one way or another).

All about Eve said...

Right on Roman!

All about Eve said...

She was a child actor, first role I think was in the Horse Whisperer with Robert Redford as the director

ABlake said...

Wait wait..
Kevin Smith+Joey Lauren Adams

But has she headlined anything? (Aside from Chasing Amy)

ABlake said...

plus they publicly dated, so nm

ABlake said...

Eliza Dushku (sp?) however..She was in Jay and Silent Bob

Sunny said...

Kevin Smith and Rosario Dawson?

Terrier Pines said...

Uma Thurman came to mind. She can be dreadful (Payroll anyone?) She was married but...

Basil said...

Whoever this is, I am glad they are the one controlling their ...auditions. I have always hated the idea of the casting couch because it is more about power and abuse than sex and pleasure. At least this woman is the one making the decisions, so more power to her.

MacAttack said...

you guys, remember, just because enty said 10 years doesn't mean hea actually means 10 years. i think you can give it a good 5 years gap between when enty said it was. so i'd say any time between 1997-2005 would be fair game. no idea who it is myself.

Jessie said...

Kirsten Dunst has been steadily working since forever. I don't think it's her.

geminigirl789 said...

Rachel McAdams is the one I come up with.
What's the story with Julia Stiles? Isn't she blacklisted or something?

Janet296 said...

I am going to think outside the box and go with Zhang Ziyi.

Hendrix said...

Thought about both Erika Christensen & Rosamund Pike; and Amy Smart (of all those Amy's, she's the least interesting.)

Rosamund popped into my head first; "Die Another Day" the big film, then smaller films until "Jack Reacher" in Dec...

Definitely NOT Kirsten Dunst (child actress, has other issues) and ESPECIALLY not Julia Stiles, who is the real deal. So is Naomi Watts.

kitty said...

kate bosworth - blue crush

Adrienne said...

I definitely thought Julia Stiles when I read this!! To me, she's the definition of B-list!

SilverOnyx said...

@dramamonkey I thought her for a bit but that director for ten things is def not a list IMO. Plus I personally love the girl and think shes pretty but I think most people think of her as average looking.

I'm kinda stumped.

goes in circles said...

I like Kate Bosworth for this.
I know she's had boyfrirnds, but the blind doesnt say she has never had them...but who directed Blue Crush? Time to Google.

victoria said...

Rebecca Hall. I'm convinced she boned Sam Mendes and Ben Affleck. not even an attractive woman, come on guys!

goes in circles said...

John Stockwell who directed such films as Top Gun, Christine....A list? But he isnt really ugly at all.
OT kind of...he was born in 61 so wow...he started directing some big films at a young age.

MAC said...

How about Ginnifer Goodwin?

MAC said...

Although Mona Lisa Smiles wasn't a huge movie. But, Walk the line was a pretty good role... Nevermind. I suck at these.

Eve said...

I think Victoria got it.

Mango said...

Penelope Ann Miller?

Ben Fowkes said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
MAC said...

I looked at Rebecca Hall but didn't see a huge movie and role about 10 years ago.

ABlake said...

Stiles hooked up with Michael C Hall and she (and he!) wrecked his marriage with co-star Jennifer Carpenter a couple of years ago.

Bet that makes for fun filming these days for him. But I don't think it's her.

annabella said...

its got to be someone w/basically average talent who has not had a boyfriend as far as we now.

to me, that leaves off jessica chastain, who is really talented and who I think went to julliard.

rebecca hall's father is a famous director in england. usu. those 'to the manor' girls don't have to get down and dirty. apparently she had an affair w/sam mendes, but that was public.

anne hathaway is also very talented. she was great in 'rachel's wedding' which was an otherwise not good movie. she was also great in the devil wears prada.

rosario dawson is beautiful and pretty talented, so I don't think its her.

the blind says: "she is usually in the mix of two or three people who look fairly identical to her."

it seems from that clue that it is a white girl.

kirsten dunst won the big award at cannes last year for melancholia, so definitely not her.

the sad thing is that this is standard operating procedure in hollywood. its just gross.

Tuxedo Cat said...

Minka Kelly?

vdubs said...

Joey Lauren adams, Chasing Amy

Me2 said...

for some reason this made me think of Rachel Weisz. I know it doesn't fit but in a way it does.

I know she married Daniel Craig last year, but didn't she virtually come out of nowhere in "the mummy"?

I'm probably wrong thats my best guess.....



Graham said...

Not Heather Graham.. she HAS been in public relationships before, including one with James Woods who basically called her dumb an blonde and said it was the reason he was dating her.

Don't think it's Ericka Christensen either as she's on that TV show for the past few years and I can't even remember what her last movie was.

Eliza Dushku has been acting since she was a child and isn't a bad actress...and I also don't think she's B-list.

And speaking of the MV blind.. I don't really know if I believe that the item is true, but if it is... I think I can jump on the JLO bandwagon. I just heard, "I'm Real" on the radio today and was struck by how it could easily not be her voice on the track.

Graham said...

Not Rachel Weisz.. she was around before the Mummy and has been married. She's also considered a very good actress and has been nominated for several awards including Drama Desk, Critics Circle, Golden Globe and Academy Awards. Definitely can't be her.

Graham said...

Correction Weisz wasn't married but engaged to Aronofsky.

Elaine Perry said...

I actually really like the Rebecca Hall guess.

Pretty but looks average to me.

Movies she thought might get her an award: The Town, Please Give, Frost/Nixon, Vicky Barcelona (nominated for a golden globe) & The Prestige.

Huge role & huge movie: The Prestige.
Married Director she first had sex with: Christopher Nolan (A List & not very good look, but he is a genius imo)

Also as of right now he has 2 movies she is the lead of coming out in 2013 (Closed Circuit & A Promise). Also going to be in Iron Man 3 in 2013 (Maybe Himmmm can give us a little hint as to if we're on the right track with this one ;)

Agent**It said...

Happy Anniversary, Enty! 6 years? November 2006 ? I am playing those numbers in the lottery...

Mrswife29 said...

I like the Rebecca Hall guess, but per today's pics, I think it has to be Chastain. To me, she came out of nowhere and landed some huge parts. She received the award noms b/c she is a fantastic actress--and probably wonders why she still has to bone for good roles. Not to mention (I think) she has a very similar look as the other 2 H'wood redheads Amy Adams and Isla Fisher.

For the record, Amy Smart is semi-retired(?) and married to Carter Oosterhouse from hgtv.

Graham said...

Not Jessica Chastain. Per the blind, she is a good actress, not a great one. The blind also insinuates that this actress has never been able to get nominated... Jessica's been nominated for an Academy Award. I also don't think Jessica's taken a break for a year, and hasn't been around a decade.

Blind Item Babe said...

Not Joey Lauren Adams. Adams started dating Kevin Smith during the filming of Mallrats. Their relationship inspired Chasing Amy. I really don't think Kevin Smith could be the director. He could never have kept that secret. He tells everything on commentary tracks.

I've got no idea who this could be but I don't think the actress has been guessed yet unless Enty fudged a BIG detail.

Rebecca said...

Ugh, I think she is an awful actress & she does almost always choose "Oscar" type movies...

Geebz said...

Piper Perabo

Karen D.C. said...

The narrowest category in the blind is A-list directors.
Steven Spielberg
Ron Howard
Christopher Nolan
Darren Aronofsky
Quentin Tarantino
David Fincher
Robert Zemekis
James Cameron
Spike Lee (A list name, at least)

I know there are more, but at least that gets it started.

ABlake said...

Peter Jackson

ABlake said...

..whatshisname..Michael Mann?

Graham said...

I don't think he's in any way involved in this Blind, but wondering if Tyler Perry is considered an A-List Director.

Also, Clint Eastwood should be on that list.

Finally, surprised that no one has guessed Jennie Garth for this.. I thought it was mandatory this week that every single blind be attributed to her at least once, ha.

ABlake said...

Yikes, it's Bay
Michael Bay

ABlake said...

Nah Graham, she was famous from '89 on..
Apparently the jury has decided this person became famous out of the blue post 2000

I totally see this as Heather Graham. She looks just like everyone else. She is pushing 43 next year, never been married, no kids, and the boyfriends are few and far between. The time thing is not a big deal. She fits perfectly. I can never figure out how she gets parts like she does, especially with her age.

@ABlake.. were you talking to me? I was making a joke about the Garth comment...

Good guess Henriette! I think Enty fudged the dates too.

Great minds ;)

Snit said...

okay..how about carrie-anne moss? she's been an actor for a long time, but she really hit it big with The Matrix, which was around 1999. I know she's married but it doesn't say this person isn.t...I guess that would make Andy Wachowski the director?

Sarah said...

Julia Stiles was my guess, but I'm on my phone and posted to the wrong blind. I guessed Julia for the B list actor! Lol

Sarah said...

Good guess! I knew about Mendez, but I heard whispers about Affeck.
The only thing is that Rebecca can act her ass off, she's a legit theater actress.

Jessica Chastain didn't come out of nowhere. She's rumored to be either Ron Howard's secret daughter or secret half-sister (Ron Howard's mom was sick a long time, and his dad was healthy.) She grew up with the last name Howard, and her father is listed at imdb as a firefighter "Backdraft" anyone?)

About MV: I didn't realize Enty was the same blogger as many years ago. If so, I know the main suspect. Original BV was a good singer, but when a performer is on the road, studios make a version of songs for next album using other singers as a cheat-sheet for the performers on the road to learn while on tour bus.

Celine Dion's husband had cancer, she had a new baby, and touring. Rumor was she didn't have time or energy to many studio sessions and one song was released with mostly the "cheat sheet" singer who had a lighter touch on a pop song than would dramatic singer Dion. That song would be the "That's the Way It is (Love Comes to Those Who Believe it.)

I don't know if it's true, but that and the unsurprising guess of Paula Abdul were among the top suspects.

I adore nerds. Stocky nerds are the best. He is not ugly imo.

Henriette said...

Julia Stiles is a good guess, but she was involved with that big break-up with that actor. Can't remember his name.

Mendez is with one of the Ryans.

Carrie-Anne Moss is actually older than Heather Graham and living in Canada. She has three kids and just got back into acting.

Heather Graham still fits the best for me.

" I just heard, "I'm Real" on the radio today and was struck by how it could easily not be her voice on the track."

She was doubled by Ashanti on that track, this is not a secret. I really don't think MV is J-Lo - you can hear that it's the same person singing and speaking. She's obviously not a great singer and she likely gets autotuned and has backup singers sweeten her, but she sings on her records.

Multiple artsy movies: High Art (for one)

Multiple A+ Directors: check out IMDB & Radha's film credits.

PuggleMommy said...

Wait, so he occasionally pulls out a "clue" about a singer who is pulling ah Milli Vanilli? He does this every so often about the same person? Something tells me this is another story that is complete BS.

Sarah said...

Julia Stiles did homewrecker Dexter but that affair only lasted a few months, it's not like they were going on public dates. I don't think that exempts her from the possibilities, whoever this is gets down with somebody in between directors.

Stephanie said...

It can't be Erika Christensen, she's been on "Parenthood" (WHICH IS A GREAT SHOW THAT EVERYONE SHOULD BE WATCHING) for the past 4 seasons.

I'm leaning towards Heather Graham. I've never been able to figure out how she gets roles, she's such a terrible actress. Actually even if this isn't her I feel pretty comfortable guessing that most of her roles have been gained through the casting couch.

TheRecklessRoute said...

I like the Emmy Rossum guess. There's a lot of other slight, fair brunettes out there.

dragon said...

Looks like she doesnt give sh8t so dont. Get it gurl I guess

Gabby said...

Heather Graham DOES have a kid...a preteen-aged absolutely gorgeous daughter named Ava with Richie Sambora. Poor girl didn't luck out in the parent department, though!

Basil said...

@Gabby It's Heather Locklear that has a daughter named Ava with Richie. I have no idea why I know this other than I have been somewhat fond of Heather Locklear since her Dynasty days.

Lauren said...

She dated Ed Burns. He's a director. When I say date, I mean that loosely.

Whoever said Radha Mitchell....we have a winner!
All the clues fit.
