Blind Item #5

For years this A list all movie actress has been providing an allowance to her C list actor ex. Recently though she cut him off and now he can barely pay his monthly bills. He never saved anything because he always had his ex as a bank. Things have got so bad that he is trying desperately to make a deal with a car company for an endorsement so he can keep his current car.

Reese/Ryan?

nichole said...

I'm on the Reese/Ryan train

ulalume said...

Hillary Swank/Chad Lowe?

Mel said...

Charlize Theron/Stuart Townshend?

LottaColada said...

I thought of Reese and Ryan too. Doesn't he drive an extravagant car? I could've sworn it was a Bentley our something like that.

hag said...

Why would any woman support her ex?

Borg Queen said...

Hilary Swank & Chad Lowe. She's had to pay his drug dealers (according to a previous Enty blind). Didnt he re-marry and have a child?

LottaColada said...

Ok it looks like a Mercedes in the DM.

Patty said...

Wouldn't there be an alimony requirement between Reese/Ryan? Maybe someone not married.

LottaColada said...

Chad Lowe actually has a paying job these days on Pretty Little Liars. He's a regular. Don't know about back then but he seems pretty stable these days. Ryan on the other hand could use a stable job.

MISCH said...

Reese paid Ryan an enormous settlement...he doesn't have money issues except for all those baby's mama's

Sparkwee said...

I'm thinking Hilary Swank/Chad Lowe too.

Ryan Phillippe still works.

FrenchGirl said...

Hilary Swanki is in DM today

Mooshki said...

Chad Lowe has a steadier income than Hilary Swank these days.

Google tells me that Ryan didn't request alimony from Reese. Maybe he thought he was going to have a great career back when they split?

Pogue Mahone said...

I guess it's time the deadbeat gets a job then instead of sponging off his ex!

Jason Blue Eyes said...

It's been a while since Hilary was in anything that made money. Is she still A list? I suppose winning two Oscars possibly helps.

phoenix said...

Ryan recently went into escrow for the sale of his $7 million home, so probably not him.

Moonmaid said...

Ryan has been working steadily in good projects, according to IMDB, so not him. I'm thinking an actress with an earlier marriage to someone not that well known. Who are today's A-list all movie actresses?

MISCH said...

Ryan didn't take alimony but he got 50% of the money earned it their time together...

Meg said...

The only reasons I can think of for a woman to financially support her ex and then stop are 1) for the sake of their kids (having a stable environment when they are with Dad), but the kids are now grown; 2) blackmail by the ex, which she is no longer worried about; and 3) guilt for leaving the ex and feeling therefore responsible for his support, which eventually fades when he won't take care of himself.

Moonmaid said...

Julianne Moore was married to an actor named John Gould Rubin, who works primarily in theatre. But he lives in NYC, and not too many people there even care about cars.

Unknown said...

Why would any man support his ex? I agree. That's just flat out dumb.

Angie & Billy Bob

SweetGeorgiaBrown said...

What about Angie and Johnny Lee Miller?

Sarah said...

Angie and Billy Bob sprang to mind as I read this too

Just Another Girl said...

Johnny Lee Miller is on Elementary (which I believe was picked up for season 2) and Chad Lowe is on Pretty Little Liars and also directs episodes of his and other shows. Ryan P. works quite a bit. I'm with Patty, it's someone who never married the ex. Charlize and Townsend are a better guess.

Sherry said...

I like the Angelina /BBT guess. Don't know why, I just do. Maybe because BBT got a little snotty in the last few years and needed some smacking down.

prolixe said...

Charlize does sound good for this. Chad's role on Pretty Little Liars is fairly steady (his character is incredibly boring, heh) & Phillippe is still getting work.

Renee Lovelace said...

Melanie griffith and steven bauer

Frufra said...

It's got to be someone well enough known (the ex) that a car endorsement is within the realm of possibility.

Aside from that, I got nothin'.

nudibelle said...

immediately thought of gizmo and ryan. Guess being the father of her kids and them being with him she helps him out make sure her kids have something

FrenchGirl said...

charlize theron/Stuart Towsend is also a nice guess(it seems he doesn't work much because of his diva attitude)

FingerBinger said...

I think Stuart Townsend is also employed he has a show or produces a show on G4 network or one of those cable channels.

Brenda L said...

My ex has really fallen down the hole since our split 10 yrs ago. I must admit I slip him a bit of cash here and there....for the sole reason that I don't want my daughter to see her daddy laying in a gutter.

In-N-Out!! said...

Townsend dated actress Charlize Theron after meeting her on the set of 2002's Trapped. The couple lived together in Los Angeles and Ireland . They said they considered themselves married without an actual marriage. "We didn't have a ceremony," he added. "I don't need a certificate or the state or the church to say otherwise. So no there's no big official story on a wedding, but we are married. ... I consider her my wife and she considers me her husband."[8]

Theron split from the Irish actor when she came back from a holiday in Mexico in January 2010.[9]

In-N-Out!! said...

This is from Wikipedia. Must be Charlize and Stuart Townsend.

bri swartley said...

Chad Lowe has been a regular on Pretty Little Liars for 3 years now, Ryan just did the show Damages, the whole season focused on his character, a Jullian Assange clone.

yodelay said...

Hmmmm, that makes me think Stuart may be the a-hole actor from this weeks blind. He's done TV and movies, and in the early 2000s was poised to move up to A list (I remember him from about Adam with Kate Hudson).

He famously got fired from Lord of the Rings the DAY BEFORE they started filming and was fired from Thor too. Also, he was with Charlize for ages, and from reveal day we know she's one to hold grudges and send "gifts" Maybe he learned it from her?

Moonmaid said...

I'm agreeing it sounds like Townsend and "ex" does not necessarily mean "husband."

The more amusing choice would be Mia Farrow and Woody Allen. ;-)

Moonmaid said...

Townsend most recent credits are 2011-2012 season starring in a Canadian series called "The Series" that filmed 26 episodes. And a B-type thriller in 2012 called A Stranger in Paradise. Now for most actors this would be a decent living, but if you are used to living an A-list life, it might be hard to make ends meet.

Katie C. said...

What about Cameron Diaz and Jared Leto?

JSierra said...

Yeah Chad is creeping it up on PLL and has been on for all three seasons.

anon said...

For something different - how about Susan Sarandon and her ex Chris?

All about Eve said...

I like the Angie and Bilky Bob guess. He just had a book out which I thought was strange for someone who's so private and scared of everything but maybe he needed the money.

L said...

That's what I was thinking too

D. K. Kurtz said...

I'm being persuaded by the Charlize/Stuart team, particularly regarding his difficulties being employable. Plus, after she adopted, her thinking about who she's *actually* responsible for might have changed.

ginr said...

I like the Diaz/Leto guess. Although, Scarlet Johannson could be paying his bills, too.

Agent**It said...

KatieC,Cameron Diaz is supposedly having some financial problems, per Wendy W. Interesting..

Jennmcn said...

Poor Stewart. He is nobody again. He had a career before she met him.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

On the Charlize/Stu train. However, I wonder how she was able to stay with him for 10 years, considering the diva stories about him?! CT seems low maintenance and from what I hear Stu is a huge diva and bitch. How do you live with a man like that?

In-N-Out!! said...

If you're committed as if it's a marriage, I guess you try and try to make it work. Until you realize he has become a self-centered pain in the butt who couldn't care about your dreams of a family or other things. I can see how they were together 10 years.

Anna Nonymous said...

Reese and Ryan fo sho

Epiphany said...

Leto is a lead singer for an internationally successful rock band. Hardly needing to lean on ex's for funds.

pdj said...

Goldie Hawn and that Hudson 1st husband.

Yasmeen said...

Perhaps it's Jennifer Garner and Scott Foley. Although, according to IMDb Foley is indeed a working actor.

Ella Bee said...

It's not Stuart Townsend. He is the star of a spy show on the Reelz network called XIII, and the second season starts in March or April. He is the only one of the top 3 stars of the show returning for the new season. The only reason I know this is because I occasionally work with Reelz. XIII is set to be one of their better shows this year (don't get me started on the Steven Seagal one).

Julia Roberts / Benjamin Bratt?
