Blind Item #4

This C+ list mostly movie actress now who made her fame in television and has huge name recognition because of a very popular character says that she does not work as much as she could because she has a very hard time working with men or doing any kind of love scene or kissing scene because she was sexually assaulted by a co-star once and she has flashbacks and panic attacks sometimes on set when she is working with men.

Stumped.

MISCH said...

Geez....awful.

Kowalski said...

Lisa Kudrow?

camembert said...

I'm guessing the actress is a lesbian because the blind doesn't say she has trouble dating, just working with men. The actress also needs some therapy so she can move past her assault.

yawnathon said...

Jesus. Happy Valentine's Day.

yawnathon said...

I was being sarcastic.

Jules_345 said...

Lisa Kudrow is a great guess. And I would disagree about it necessarily being a lesbian...perhaps the person is in a committed relationship so doesn't worry about their mate but has issues on set.

Jeneral said...

Elizabeth Berkley?

ABlake said...

The lady who was on Martin with Martin Lawrence. Her name escapes me...Tisha? The one they called face

camembert said...

@Julies Good point.

Ella Bee said...

ABlake, your guess intrigues me. It should be noted that Tisha Campbell is married, but she is married to Dwayne Martin....who happened to be on a romantic vacay with Will Smith and Kimye in Rio. Just sayin...

Halfmad said...

Does Tisha Campbell have huge name recognition though? Otherwise it would fit with the pretty well-known (at least at the time) reasons for her leaving "Martin."

Have to admit, Sarah Michelle Gellar came to mind first, not sure why.

Karen said...

The Lisa Kudrow guess doesn't really fit for me--IMDB has her as on a TV show from 2008-2012 and her last movie was Easy A in 2010. I'd say that she's more TV than movies.

Also, she's always been more of a supporting character in movies. I like her, but I'm not interested in seeing her in a romantic role. It seems more likely that she's C+/B- because she's not a box office draw rather than because she's uncomfortable with love scenes.

Additionally (and this might do more to disprove my point than prove it), she said that she stayed a virgin until she got married at 31-32 because her mother told her that her virginity was the best gift that she could give her husband. She has some quotes about people mistreating sex, but I never got the impression that sexual assault was a reason for her thinking.

skimpymist said...

Dwayne martin and will have been lovers for over a decade. I think when dwayne and tisha got married she thought he was straight but later found out about the affair. He treats her like crap now and is letting his be foreclosed on cause he refuses to pay the mortgage even though she's still living in there.

prolixe said...

Sounds like Sarah Michelle Gellar. David Bourenaz is a complete a*hole.

Karen said...

Meh. I take back everything I said. Well, just the virgin part. Looked it up and apparently it was a quote that got taken out of context until it was all over the internet that Lisa Kudrow waited until marriage. Never mind!

crila16 said...

SMG sounds like a good guess.

bobbi_1025 said...

The whole "Because of her character" makes me think the role is based off a book character. Besides True Blood, Dexter, and GoT I don't know of any other book based series.

M52799 said...

Sarah Michelle Geller is a good guess but she isn't mostly movies now is she? She was in Ringer last year. Has she done a movie since then?

Kloie said...

Evangeline Lilly, with Matthew Fox as co-star?

Kowalski said...

Ha.. yeah, I guess I didn't realise just how much TV she has done/is currently doing. I guess I was just thinking that for an attractive woman, she really doesn't do many "sexy" roles. Easy A was pretty tame, and she is usually matronly or "quirky", which is fine, but kind of strange, when you consider how most actresses have done nude scenes/sex scenes in their careers.

dragon said...

I thought Buffyy the Vampire Slayer

Marisol Habibi said...

SMG is not possible since she has done TONS of kissing and love scenes (some of the most provocative for network tv) on Buffy. I don't think this is her, and on her failed show RINGER the cast was primarily men.

Lucy Lawless? Xena being her one role.

saycheese said...

kristin bell? popular character being veronica mars?

MadLyb said...

I was going to guess Jessica Alba, but I like the Veronica Mars guess much better.

Grey said...

Ooo I like the Evangeline Lilly guess

cc423 said...

I totally got a Calista Flockhart vibe from this one...

Borg Queen said...

@ Kloie - I think you are on to something. We already know he is a raging drunk that likes to hit women.

BrainyAngel said...

Can't be Xena bc she is on Spartacus where there is tons of nudity and sex scenes. Victoria Principal (Dallas)! Polly Holiday (Alice's Flo)! Haha

Jennifer Garner?

She's not really doing much movie work or getting big roles and her big television role was Alias as Sydney Bristow

All about Eve said...

I like the Evangeline Lilly guess too

prolixe said...

@M52, you're right, she is mostly tv now. It was the first thing that popped into my head because of the very popular character - name recognition, etc.

tealily said...

I'm so tired of trying to out sexual assault victims. This is dumb.

auntliddy said...

I know when lost ended, she went into a psych facility for treatment-voluntarily. Whoever its im sorry it happened. And to the the abuser? I hope your dick hangs uselessly, unhard, for the rest of your life. Enjoy.

Nancy said...

I would say Evangeline Lilly is a good guess but she did do love scenes with Josh Holloway on Lost (of course those were before her character got together with the Matthew Fox character) and she did date Dominic Monaghan for a long time. I think she is married with a child now.

AKM said...

Don't think it could be SMG. Too many hot-and-heavy scenes with Angel and Spike.

Karen, I thought everything you initially said about L. Kudrow was the truth? It was misquoted? Huh.

AND...I can't think of a guess. Boo.

Mala Propism said...

It's probably crazy, but what about someone like Hillary Duff? She really hasn't don't much except for be tabloid fodder, got famous for Lizzie McGuire and then started doing movies but pretty much stopped. Maybe the costar wasn't on the series but on a movie set?
Just a random guess/thought.

Whomever it is? My heart goes out to her.

SueRH said...

Kristin Davis?

Kloie said...

I don't think being married necessarily precludes the actress. You can trust your husband but not trust a co-star - you never know when they will cross a line. I'm sticking with Evangeline Lilly as the guess, a) because we know Matthew Fox is shady; b) she hasn't done much lately - she did Real Steel or whatever, and will be in the Hobbit movies in 2014; and c) didn't she say she was going to retire totally when Lost ended? I wonder why.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Sarah M Gellar came to mind, with Buffy being the epic character she played.
She barely works now (succesfully) and is mostly with her kids.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Evangeline Lilly has dated Dominic Mogaghan (sp?) and on his Twitter he actually called out Matthew Fox for being a woman beater and an abusive prick. This was after Fox was arrested for drinking/abuse (cant remember what is was right now)
Kinda big words from an ex-costar, usually HW is full of asskissers. And of course they all worked together on Lost and he dated Evangeline, so he would know about Fox touching/beating her.

Evangeline is a very good guess!

Shit You Can't Buy said...

The story about M.Fox and Dominic Monaghan:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2152249/Dominic-Monaghan-launches-Twitter-attack-Matthew-Fox-claim-attacked-female-bus-driver.html

Incl. posts of his Twitter in which he slamms Fox for being a douche. And says he was beaten women before (Evangeline? How else would Dominic know, unless Fox beat other women on the set of Lost)

GOd I love Dominic! He seems like a decent and very honest guy :)

msgirl said...

Huh! I was all ready to shout that it's not Evangeline for various very good reasons BUT with the Dom reminder, wow could be.

But she's also very low key, and was in NZ for a long time shooting the Hobbit. She's also with a PA so she obviously is not into the "scene" and I say good for her.

catlady1234 said...

jessica alba?

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@msgirl: I am not completely sure about the following; but I remember Enty revealing a blind about an actress who left HW because of her co-star(s?) and having all sorts of mental problems. It was Evangeline as far as I remember.

I thought of it when I saw ppl guessing Evangeline here and remember Dom speaking about Fox and put two and two together.

I will try to find the blind, but I could be terribly wrong, it was a while ago.

Clubber Wang said...

When I read the specific character, I was thinking along the Sci-Phi route and thinking Summer Glau with Nathon Fillion on Firefly

Shit You Can't Buy said...

*back*

Can't find the blind, so guess it came from someone else, or in my mind it was so obvious I though of it as a reveal xD

but did find some stories of her checking into a mental facility after finishing Lost. Fits the timeline and the Dom comments.

prolixe said...

@Clubber - you and me, 3 o'clock behind the gym.

catlady1234 said...

the majority of the people being guessed do not have a list name recognition. Summer Glau? Evangaline Lilly? Are average people familiar with these names? i'm certainly not.

Jessica Alba became famous by playing dark angel

goddess. said...

gillian anderson?

Discobitch said...

Maybe that's why Dom Monaghan called him out on twitter?

Discobitch said...

Maybe that's why Dom Monaghan called him out on twitter?

persistentillusion said...

@Clubber Wang - Have you seen the "Firefly" Comic Con panels? Summer Glau clearly adores Nathan Fillion and is not a good enough actress to fake it. Nathan Fillion is a true gentleman; heard NOTHING but positive things about him.

NL said...

The Firefly crowd is still very close. If Nathan Fillion was abusing a castmate I don't think the rest of them would all still be so close with him.

annamarie dealmeida said...

What about Karen from will and grace??

April Walsh said...

@goddess, Gillian was the first person who came to mind for me, with Scully and how she does only movies (and some BBC miniseries) since X-files. But it makes me sad to think she's C+ as I think of her as forever B just on Scully alone.

Anyway, she could fit with how little onscreen romance we got on X-files, series or films. I mean, the blind doesn't say she never has or will do love scenes, just that she has a hard time.

If this is true, I'd like a reveal of the man so I know who to forever hate.

tardbug said...

Katherine heigl, maybe?

Gabby said...

@annamaria - Megan Mullally is married to Nick Offerman who plays Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation and a bunch of her roles have been overtly sexual women who are all over her male counterparts. I don't think this is her.
