Blind Items Revealed

September 17, 2008

#2 - I don't know if this B+/A- heart throb actor is dating this B- list film actress with A+ name recognition, but it didn't stop them from having sex in a limo on the way to a film. Just wondering if the driver got photos.

Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston

Go Jen!

Chrissy Buns said...

Oh my!

Merlin D. Bear said...

Word!
Wasn't this *just* after "Sparta" was released?
So he'd have been prime beef... so hell yeah, I'd hit that too.
No shame, Jen!

Sarah said...

Interesting classification and wording for Jennifer.

Translation Project Manager said...

Weren't they dating back then?

anderguy said...

Gerry got as high as A- four years ago?! And now his new soccer movie, "Playing for Keeps" is getting bad reviews.

Iroically, Jessica Biel, who usually gets trashed by critics, is being cited as one of the besr actors in the movie.

hotchacha said...

He's so nasty. Ew.

Unknown said...

I'm curious how Enty would classify Jen now, if that's how she was rated in 2008. Arguably, she hasn't gotten better, or am I wrong?

Renoblondee said...

Yeah, B- for Jenn? Huh.
That is interesting though, I thought they were only PR back then.

timebob said...

Jen is such a control freak I have a hard time believing it but there was that picture of his hands on her ass when they didn't know pictures were being taken from behind at their movie premiere.

With Gerry anything is possible I guess.

Harvey Manfrenjensen said...

Wouldn't you be worried about the driver overhearing? He WAS super hot after 300, and seemed like he could be a great new addition to the landscape. He seemed serious, private, and a decent actor. Now? He's a running joke. I remember that he was the favorite for a blind re: an actor (Gerard) who said that his a list co star conquest (Jen) was the most boring lay ever and that he had to flip her over and imagine she was a different actress? Although, now, she doesn't sound all that boring. Now her tousled hair and red cheeks on the carpet take on a whole new meaning.

DBZee said...

Oh, dear, Merlin, I almost spit coffee on my keyboard! Yes, 300 Gerard... yummy.

@Harvey, now I have to look the red carpet picture up!

DBZee said...

This one? Oh, myyyy! And that skirt would make it doable...

Christine Magnotta said...

Jennifer Anniston is B-...then is Angelina Jolie A+? Because she can't really carry a movie anymore either, or, she tries to and it BOMBS... -- the same as Jen -- so shouldn't they be equivalent? And when was the last time St. Angie had a hit???? The last one I can think of is Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which was, like, seven years ago and which, let's face, only did well because of the Brad Pitt romance!!!

yodelay said...

You're horny
Let's do it
Ride it
My pony

Ever since Magic Mike, that's my internal soundtrack for hookup stories.

dragon said...

Thanks alot Yodelay. Now have to you tube that pony scene.

Gerald Butler needs to stop makin movies or just takin supporting roles. the last movies he done has been flopping hard.

his new movie has like 2%on rotten tomatoes. lol

nudibelle said...

jennn get that slut on!

yodelay said...

That scene deserves an Oscar.

Bridget said...

Except that's from 2010, and the blind is from 2008. So actually way before they worked together.

Me said...

my first thought was, "what a fun day!"

KellyLynn said...

I get so tired of people picking apart classifications. The lists are always subjective, depending on how often you are exposed to that celebrity and in what context. For example, A-list tweeners might barely be noticed by someone who isn't a kid or doesn't have kids. Just like when Enty calls someone all-movie or all-television -- don't get too hung up on it.

All about Eve said...

I wouldn't do it now but good for her. They were both unattached I believe so not scandalous at all.

And I'm still shocked at the way people get so emotional about the whole Jen and Angie thing! Obviously both sides have moved on can we do the same please?

Unknown said...

Here's why Angelina is A list & Jen is B list at best. Wanted made $350M, Changeling made $100M, Salt & TT made $300M, and the Kung Fu Panda movies made $1.3 B. All 3 movies she has that came out in 2008 were nominated for Oscars. A Mighty Heart was a great movie that made back it's small budget & should have been nominated for more awards. Besides Meryl and sometimes Sandy B, Angelina is one of the very few women who can get backend 1st dollar gross and/or greenlight a movie on her name alone. The movie she wrote/directed (In the Land of Blood and Honey) was VERY intense, but very good. The UK foreign minister just said that her film inspired him to start an international project working to stop rape as weapon of war. Even after taking off for a couple of years, Disney just paid her $20 M plus backend to star in and executive produce Maleficient. Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to get facts out- I like to support exceptional talent- girl power!

Alma said...

Second the go girl!!!

greenmountaingal said...

Oh my! Go Jen! But seriously, how was she B-? Yes her movies don't do well, but I would think Friends would keep her permanent A. What do I know? I'm tipsy & know nothing about this rating system. :)

FrenchGirl said...

why was a blind item? they were together at this period even if I think it was all RP stunt for the movie AND Aniston is A list (she's in top 3 in Forbes' most paid actresses every year)

it took forever said...

wow, jens taste in men , just wow

__-__=__ said...

I guess she gets them while they're hot. Both Brad and Butler are far from the hotness now. Go Girl!!

cowbulls said...

"an actor (Gerard) who said that his a list co star conquest (Jen) was the most boring lay ever and that he had to flip her over and imagine she was a different actress?"
I've been telling ya'll that JA treats sex like a tradable commodity. Never in Hollywood's sorted history has a women with less talent used her sexual parts to get further. She has all by herself put back the women's movement several years. I wonder how many girls had to perform all kinds of sexual activities because JA set the bar so low.

nancer said...

i consider meryl streep permanent A.

how the hell is aniston permanent A? she has no acting range at all. she's good at fluffy romcoms and that's it. i see her name on a movie, i know exactly what it's going to be and so should everyone else by now.

she's really cute, but other than that, i don't get the 'oh, she's A!!' thing at all.

Mango said...

You go, Jen!

I'm not a fan of GB in the sense that I follow his career or bother to see his movies but I saw him once on a talk show (maybe Craig Ferg?) and found him really charming, smart and funny and could see why women made such a fuss over him (but not enough for me to actually spend money on a ticket).

He's a dick if he actually said that flipping comment about Jen, who I will love forever for being Rachel on Friends. Her movies? Not so much.

Lila said...

This was well before their stupid movie together. And this "blind" came a week after this was reported by Lainey: http://www.celebitchy.com/14090/gerard_butler_and_jennifer_aniston/

B. Profane said...

Unknown makes a very cogent analysis, although throwing in Kung Fu Panda was not correct (supporting voice talent contributes relatively little to grosses of animated films).

If you want know who the real A-list women of film are, check the list of those with the highest margin of foreign grosses over cost. Or the likes of Meryl.

Aniston churns out rom-coms and regular comedies by the truckload, but she just can't bust out a real hit. Nice breakeven work, but she needs to pull a Bridesmaids to make it into the A-list.

smash said...

I love you b profane. You always have just the right words sometimes.

Margaux said...

Gross

AndrewBW said...

Oh Jen, you should have just called me!

Della said...

Ha! Now that's what I'm talking about. That is a reveal!

Ethan Hawke said...

Jennifer Aniston.. Hmm what a fun blind! I enjoyed her work in Friends With Money. I even enjoy some of her rom-coms occasionally. But I've always gotten the impression that she was an ice queen since that whole 'crew members cant make eye contact thing'... but she's a stoner too so that makes me think she cant be too bitchy. I dunno. This blind made me like her more. Cuz if I could afford a limo I'd be fucking Gerard Butler down the highway too. Oh yes. Oh yes. Oh yes. Oh and yeah I'd say Jennifer Aniston is an A-list celebrity but a B-list film actress. Studios would much rather have Sandra Bullock open their movie than Jennifer Aniston.

Unknown said...

I say "Go Jen"!

As an aside, I'm curious as to where the numbers for Jolie's Maleficent salary etc came from in the above post.

The IMDB page for the film does not list Jolie as an "Executive Producer", despite listing everything down to the cashier.

Henriette said...

@Mango
The only time I like Butler is when he's on Craig Ferguson. The have all these inside Scottish jokes that make me laugh even though I don't what they are talking about. I love when Craig makes fun of Butler not doing enough cartoons!

In his Dracula 2000 days, I found Butler hot. Now that I know he sleeps with anything that walks upright and some that don't, my likeness for him has diminished. Unless he is on Craig's show!

redronnie said...

Allegedly, this encounter happened at TIFF - Lainey ran with it the day after it "happened" a friend of mine was at the event where Lainey claimed they hooked up..according to my friend didn't happen they talked then left separately- it was the same weekend the media was trying to catch a reunion of Pitt and Aniston together or meeting, so Aniston had cameras following her every move.

jax said...

^ Lainey wrong! well colour me shocked! (except I'm not)

nunaurbiz said...

LOL good for them. Gerry must glove himself cos with all the reported romps, you don't see any mini-Gerrys about, do you? Tee hee!
