Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!!!
I'm thinking perhaps #1 is Brad Pitt, #2 is Goop, but no idea on #3?
Brad and Gwen for the couple?
Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow and ????They broke after Se7en.
I was think Ben A and Gwynith but I like Brad Pitt for this better! No idea for #3
Oooh, good guesses! Was Paltrow A+ list yet, back then? I thought she was still an up and coming actress.
No way was Pitt only B whatever when Se7en came out.
100% Brad & Gwen for the couple. I haven't a clue for the 3rd, but in my fantasy, its Salma Hayek. Now THAT would be a smokin hot couple!
Nicholson, Angelica Houston, and ?
@feziq, I would think Pitt would be A list and Paltrow would be B list back then. More people knew of Pitt.
Wait. Didn't this say this happened not too long ago before everything was covered 24/7? I interpreted this to mean it happened before something like Sandy Hook was all over the news trumping this story from getting out. Then again I totally suck at these.
@PuggleWug, Se7en came out in '95. Gwyneth won her Oscar in '98. Hmmm..
Gwenyth totally strikes me as someone who never gets laid. I saw her bedroom once in an Elle Decor or something. Good god. It looked like a museum.
ChasingHeaven, I believe it means before the internet and 24/7 news all the time.
I can never get these blinds.
@chasingheaven, I took it as this happened before anything personal, involving celebs, could be found on the internet.
@chasingheaven, I read it as before TMZ.
Other definite A list actresses:
Angelina JolieJulia RobertsReese WitherspoonCameron Diaz (due to Shrek)Nicole KidmanMeryl StreepSarah Jessica ParkerSandra BullockDrew BarrymoreRenee ZellwegerJennifer AnistonCharlize Theron
We can cross SJP (as she made her fame from TV), Jennifer Aniston (ditto) and Nicole Kidman (Tom Cruise getting bored, not horrified of having sex with a woman???), and Meryl Streep
Gwyneth (like Jennifer Aniston) as been mentioned as quite boring, but not necessarily in bed.Everybody thinks about her first because she dated Brad Pitt when he started to get leading roles.
For the other couple, we have to look for a woman who has risen while her husband, who was ranked higher at the time, has slipped past her. CZJ?
I like the Affleck/Paltrow guess for the couple.
I thought Paltrow cheated on Affleck. His star has continued to rise since he first started out, though.
Brad, Gwyneth, and Charlize Theron or Cameron Diaz? There are not a lot of A-list females that work for this.
not Ben and Gwyneth for #1/2:it's her who brokenot Brad and Gwyneth for #1/2: he yet was A list and she's B list during SEVEN filming
I don't know, I think Goop likes to get her freak on. She did land a rock star after all. I think it's the snooty, cold ones that totally get their freak on!As for a guess, no idea.
Almost got it yodelay, but its not Brad & Gwyneth. She left him and he was messed up and in therapy over it for a bit. I say Ben A, Gwyneth and Salma. Ben & Salma were in Dogma together. After that, Ben's stripper obsession started coming out in Ben & Gwyn's interviews for Bounce, he looked even more miserable with her & Salma started dating Ed Norton.
@Reno i totally agree! I never fall for the cold bitch type not being sexual. First of all some guys/girls get a turn on from that shit! Lol
Yes—Jazzy got it I think. I've been trying to make it fit Affleck, but didn't see many of his Big-Douche-Era movies. YKWhenIM.
How about Ben and Jlo. I could see her being a bit cold fish in bed, but freaking out if someone tried to take her man.
Wait–I HAVE seen "Dogma"–but I must have blacked Affleck out, because it was his Big Douche Era.
I could see this as Ben & Goop.
Last year, Goop was on the radio raving about her book and her lifestyle and she said, Dinner is where I really go off the rails."
Was Salma A-list?
i guess i have a problem thinking of affleck as 'one of the biggest stars on the planet'. same problem with gwynnie and salma.
since i think this is pre-internet—or at least say, 10 years ago, i'm just thinking someone a little less 'now' than the guesses so far.
Matthew McConnaughey, Sandra Bullock and ???
doesnt it say that the girlfriend was A+, all movie at the time and has not fallen in status and that the guy was B- then but A + now? Am I reading it wrong? I, too, thought of Gwynnie..but I was thinking with Ben. She wasn't A+ was she? hmmm..well…maybe she was…but she definitely wasn't A+ when she met Brad.
One thing that struck me was that it says apartment so that strikes me as people based in New York.
But is Goopy still A+ list? She hasn't done much at all lately. What about Clooney and Zellweger and who?
I read this as Tom and Nicole and ??
Oh I guess not, I just saw that #2 was a girlfriend not a wife…
@ Jazzy – I thought Pitt and Paltrow broke up because she cheated on him and got caught. I recall an interview many years later where she spoke of her regret at messing up that relationship and blamed immaturity for her actions (if I remember correctly).
"The even crazier thing is though that #2 didn't break up with our actor. Nope. She said they could work it out and insisted on them going to therapy everyday to work it out."
This is sooooooo Gwyneth. Poor Chris Martin, lol.
Okay, just to throw something different out there….
The A+ actor who was probably a B back then – Ryan Gosling.
The A+ actress who hasn't budged from that perch at all – Sandra Bullock
And the A actress that was B list that ended up dating an A-lister who is now B list – I have no idea.
I know, I know – Sandy doesn't look so skinny that she'd break and doesn't seem like the type, but I thought I'd chime in with something different than Gywneth.
Any chance on Goseling and Bullock as the couple?
Disclaimer: I suck at these.
@Kara – Interesting guess. Maybe Enty means "thought she would break" figuratively? Like emotionally, not physically? Could be Sandy. Hmmm. I've got to think about who'd be #3 in this trifecta.
Also, I agree with all of you on Ben/Gwen not Brad/Gwen – if it's Goop. So, Salma is A due to Executive Producer credits and Frida? Who else could be #3?
hmmm idk lol
Because of the rumored fling between Ben and Salma during the filming of Dogma in 99 and Ben and Hoop didn't break up until 2000, I'm going with Ben, Goop and Salma.
Rock star? Chris Martin is more of a pop star, and a prissy ass one at that.
I like the Ben, Gwyn, Salma and Ed guess. Gwyn was A-list in 1999 and sadly still is due to Oscar, goop, Iron Man franchise.
I could see Gwyn being the girl but I don't think Brad would complain about a girl being too thin. Isn't that his preference? For the girl to be as thin as possible? I could see Ben and Gwyn though, with her hanging on tight.
I would think someone who is a stage 5 clinger would be considered emotionally fragile and could possibly break that way.
I think this is Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Maybe Rupert or Taylor one of those triangles… it wasnt that long ago… Robert was a b- a actor (after harry potter and everything and than twilight)Kristen is Definalty an A lister as she has been in so much and is paid insane amounts. plus wiht the press coverage rob went into hiding like he was already prepared for it to hit the new stands…
I doubt it's Paltrow. When she was with Brad, she was a chain-smoker with messy ponytail on top of her head when on her own time (Kristen Stewart style, jeans and sneakers, but Paltrow's was more flannel), and then photos came out of Paltrow and Brad standing around naked on a yacht and making out. She didn't look disinterested or breakable.
I think this had to have happened in the 90's, before networks like E! really took off and MTV started heavily reporting celebrity stuff.
That said, I got nuthin.
Brad PittGwyneth Paltrow (can't stand her)Minnie Driver
#2 sounds like Julia Roberts. Considering she was with just about everyone I can't narrow down who #1 would be.
I keep trying to make Julia and Daniel Day-Lewis work for this.
I don't think this involves Brad or Gwyneth, at least not together. Remember those fuzzy pap photos of Brad and Gwyneth messing around the pool naked? I don't know when those were taken exactly but I do remember that back then Goop wasn't quite the annoying, prissy, asexual creature she is now. Although it is possible that by the time she got to Ben she'd started to change, possibly some extreme opposite reaction to the fallout of her cheating on Brad or something.
@Jazzy, wow, I love that combo even more! Something about a Latina in her prime is just irresistable, the guy is secondary in all this.
k..just to throw some new names into the hat…what about winona ryder and matt damon? as the main couple?
No, this is pre-internet gossip blog, Twitter, cell camera days. Pre-2002 or so, I'd say, more like mid-late 90s.
Best way to gauge this, is think of who covers those gossip rags the most. That tells you their "worth" as in gossip and pictures. Old Ben A and Gwennie days were covered religiously. The height of it being Bennifer days. Those were crazy.
Ashley Judd. He had sex with both of them when they did A Time To Kill.
Def. nicholson and Angelica Huston. I think there were rumors of jack having an affair around the time of that movie called prizzi's honor. The clues suggest an older pre-Internet story and this fits better than anything newer than about 1998.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe were the first to come to mind. No idea on the #3 actress though and judging from the comments I may be the only person to think it's them.
