Today's Blind Items - The Method Marriage

Method acting can take its toll on an actor who does it, but when he does it to an unsuspecting person and makes them her spouse, it can be brutal. Our actor is almost A list. He is famous for saying he is a method actor although his method does not always coincide with what his role is. One time he was playing a conservative man and visited strip clubs every night to prepare saying he felt that inside his character there was a dark place that wanted to visit strippers every night. Not that long ago he got married and his wife is expressing frustration to everyone she can. She wants it to work. She does not want to look stupid and she will if they divorce. The thing is the actor recently told her that he married her because a role he is in called for him to be married so he wanted to feel that for the role. He also said that his character is a junkie which it isn;t but gave our actor a chance to start using heroin again which is his all-time favorite thing to do. The good news for his wife is that our actor is so distracted by his heroin that he has started letting her out of the house. Prior to that he was smothering her with his closeness.

All my method guesses are all A-list, Hoffman, Deniro, Bale

MAC said...

As soon as I hear method I think of Christian Bale and I couldn't get him out of my head to think of anyone else. He doesn't fit though.

Chicky said...

Ooh - I like the Giovanni guess

skipper said...

Giovanni Ribisi...

NapAssasin said...

Giovanni Ribisi & Agnes Deyn? I think they were the pick for a blind about her not getting out & some creepy-over they top closeness. Recently married after a quick courtship & he seems to get into his roles. He was great in Ted my the way, as a supporting character.

Jennifer H. said...

So this would be a man in his first marriage. And why would she look stupid if it didn't work? Maybe if it was a "everyone warned her" situation?

Karen said...

Isla Fisher and Sascha Baron Cohen have been married over three years--and I don't think she'd look stupid if they divorced. It's a good guess, though.

LottaColada said...

Ahhh didn't see the recently married part until now. I withdraw my guess.

FrenchGirl said...

not sasha baron cohen! Isla fisher works
not ryan reynolds! his next role is a father trying to track down his kidnapped daughter.
Ribisi is not almost A list and his wife continue to be model and act

VIPblonde said...

I like the Giovanni guess, @karen et al!!!

So much for Scientology keeping people sober LOL

Silly Girl said...

I seriously don't think it's Ribisi. He's WAY too into CO$ for this to be allowed to happen. Really don't think Ryan Reynolds used heroin either, that seems way off base. All that being said, I really don't have any guesses. Bale would have been a good guess, but he's been married awhile.

MAC said...

The fact that Enty says she will look stupid if they divorce leads me to think it was someone who got married quickly or something. I like the Sasha/Isla guess except they have been married for a while and I don't think she would look stupid. It doesn't mention kids, so I like the Giovanni Ribisi guess since they got married on a whim and I guess she might look stupid for marrying so quickly.

Groovy said...

I read it as Ryan and Blake until the heroin. I've been wrong before but I just don't see him as a heroin junkie.

LottaColada said...

This would make me really sad if this is Giovanni Ribisi. He's not quite A list so he fits but he's been around long enough that you know who he is when you see him.

Amber said...

It sounds like the wife isn't famous. Who has gotten married recently? The only person that comes to mind is Baldwin, but I don't really peg him for a heroin user.

FrenchGirl said...

Bale is at least A list and he's married since forever

A RESIDENT said...

Vince Vaughn

MadLyb said...

I'm on the Ribisi train. The marriage was out of the blue and he's a bit odd, as in Nicholas Cage odd.

MAC said...

Is Ethan Hawk remarried?

Karen said...

Hmm...Giovanni Ribisi has been married before, actually. From 1997-2001. The blind definitely sounds like a first marriage, so hmmm.

Armadillo Cake said...

I think Giovanni Ribisi too!! Didn't Peaches Geldof allegedly have a " drying out" sesh at the COS? ( sorry, can't find the dollar sign on this thing)

FrenchGirl said...

Hawke is remarried since since 2008

Dandelion said...

Matthew McConaughey. He just got married even though they already had kids.

Seachica said...

Hugh Hefner and crystal Harris. That Hef, he's such a druggie -- those Alzheimer's drugs get addictive

hag said...

Who brags about being a method actor?

Where's Shelly? said...

I like the Giovanni guess too. He's been so gaunt, skinny, grey pallored, for the last few years. And has always been such a weird/wild, yet good actor. He's also Co$. And there was the recent blind re: the new wife who's husband was smothering her to death, thought to be re: him and Agneyss ( I don't care to correctly try and spell your pretentious name lady) Deyn? And wasn't there recently a blind about a brand new and sexless marriage thought to be them too..??

Where's Shelly? said...

Daniel Day Lewis is method, and Sascha Baron Cohen too..

RocketQueen said...

I don't think any of these guesses are right yet...Ribisi isn't even close to A and his wife works quite a bit.

cdanluva said...

Bill and Hillary Clinton

Karen said...

I feel like "has started letting her out of the house" is exaggerated to show how clingy he is.

This sounds like not only a new marriage, but a new relationship. Matthew McConaughey has been with his wife for years even though they only recently got married. Why would he choose to start smothering her now, just because they're married?

BitterBlondin said...

Giovanni was the first one I thought of. I could see him both being a "method actor" and using heroin.

dragon said...

DANIE DAY LEWIS FTW

dragon said...

Didn't Blake kinda trap Ryan so i doubt its them

urban chaos said...

I'd buy Giovanni for this way before I'd consider RR. he just doesn't strike me as a heroin user.

And, GR has been in so many great character and supporting roles (sort of like Phillip Seymour Hoffman) I could see his rating as such.

All about Eve said...

I agree with the Giovanni Ribisi guess, he's working on a movie about David Koresh which could be the character he's going method for. And he can be close to A list, his kind of well known, good actor and the list of movies he's been in is impressive.

B. Profane said...

COS does NOT try to keep its celebrity adherents from using drugs. They like it. They know that, beyond the blackmail leverage, drug use and clam-thought makes for an ironclad co-dependency lock on someone's psyche.

Ribisi was very convincing as a strung out reporter in The Rum Diaries. Actually, I thought it was a fine performance.

B. Profane said...

Also, there's good reason to think that the blog gets very good inside info on COS celebrities.

All about Eve said...

Daniel Day Lewis I think IS A list, not almost. Of course that can be the fan girl in me talking :)

EmEyeKay said...

Ribisi dumped a long-term GF right before hooking up with Deyn. If he'd wanted to feel married, why not marry her?

B. Profane said...

Lewis is solid A+. It would be a little generous to call Ribisi almost A-list, but not by much.

All about Eve said...

@ B Profane, good point about the co dependency!

Nothanksdarlin said...

Does Colin Farrell fit? That's where I went with it and he is a method actor

dragon said...

I was joking with Daniel day Lewis.

Tuxedo Cat said...

As usual I don't know who the blind is about, but that is one messed up reason to get married.

Mikey said...

Giovanni is doing a movie called I Fought the Law about the death of Booby Fuller. Here is the synopsis:
A writer finds a link between his fiancé's suicide and the unsolved death of Bobby Fuller, a one-hit wonder from the '60s. His investigation into their deaths leads him to a conspiracy involving the music industry, LAPD and snuff films.
I believe Gio is playing the writer.
Everything else is in post prod. or still being written.
But I think the biggest clue of the blind is the last sentence, "Prior to that he was smothering her..." which he was right?

Jessi said...

Did Ed Norton recently get married?

smash said...

Giovanni has creeped me out since X Files.

Nothanksdarlin said...

Great point. Wasn't Juliet Lewis rumored to be an (ex) addict too? She's all up in that freaky church too

Mikey said...

Otherwise I would say Joaquin Phoenix because Ted C. used to call him Brain-Fry Noodlestein, but he is not recently married that I know of.

Megan said...

I don't think it's Ribisi if only because I've never seen him playing a conservative character

B. Profane said...

I don't recall that Lewis has ever admitted to using but I believe there were rumors that she was strung out around the time of her Natural Born Killers/Strange Days career peak.

She's another actor-clam that I'd like to see escape the clutches of COS. They can keep Cruise, Alley and Elfman, but Lewis and Ribisi are actually talented.

VIPblonde said...

@Mikey That reminds me: This is in the Mail today: Joaquin Brought Sister As Date

Wasn't there a blind last year about a brother a sister "dating," and the fam was cool with it? This pic of them together totally reminded me of that

MISCH said...

Rebecca Miller can handle Daniel Day-Lewis, she had years of experience watching her mom cater to her dad....

curlyhairslacker said...

@Mikey, I always wondered who Brain-Fry was....thanks for the confirmation! :)

dragon said...

@what the hell VIPblonde. ewwww

~Z~ said...

I have no idea if he is a method actor (Chipmunk movies have method actors?), but what about the guy who just married Amber Tamblin David Cross?

P. said...

what about daniel craig & rachel weiss?

from november 2012: "Method actors suggest that you do sense memory exercises every time you do a scene. I use every method I can. Whatever works, I'll use." - Daniel Craig on his nameless role in the gangster film "Layer Cake."

MissInfo said...

I co-sign with Karen!

Jeri said...

Hope it's not Daniel & Rachel. Would like them to be happy in spite of rumors. Blake has been MIA since marriage but heroin does not seem to fit Ryan's clean cut / uptight image (whatever thats worth) so I guess the Giovanni guesses have it.

B. Profane said...

That quote just proves that Craig isn't a real Method actor. Sense memory has been discredited as a Method technique for years. It can go horribly wrong. Did for me.

Besides, Craig and David Cross aren't the types to do heroin!

Sarah said...

Daniel Day Lewis has been married too long, that would be really Method, even for him.
Giovanni is a weird guy, but he's way too deep in the Co$ to get away with heroin, right?

Gabby said...

Another method actor is Phillip Seymour Hoffman, though he's been married since 1999 so chances are very slim this is him. I think Giovanni Ribisi is a good guess, although I don't think he's almost A-list...

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@vipblonde, holy crap good catch. I remember looking into that one and once I found she lived just around the corner from each other i was sold. There's also pics of them holding hands as dates to a PETA function.

Schmucky Putz said...

The Rock.

Henriette said...

I love Jason Lee, but he's in COS.

I like the Ryan/Blake guess. She really went after him, and he keeps her under his thumb.

smash said...

B. I really like Juliette. It always made me kinda sad she believes in the utter nonsense.

anon said...

I'm feeling Giovanni for this - just recently married - and quickly, so that could make her look stupid if they split - and he always looks like death warmed over.

B. Profane said...

Ribisi doesn't always look like death warmed over, that's the thing. Sometimes he looks Buscemi-odd, but healthy. And sometimes he totally has the junkie wasting and pallor. Which makes him an even better fit.

Mama Ray said...

I love both Giovanni Ribisi and Juliette Lewis! Curse you CO$!

Sadly, so far GR does seem the best fit...

pusssykatt said...

Giovanni is a method actor:

Jen said...

What about Zach Galifiniakis? Just married in August..

B. Profane said...

IIRC, Zach G had been with his new wife for a long time before they wed. Plus he's really not the type to screw around with junk. Total pothead, of course.

Giovanni Ribisi's First Appearance Since Surprise ...
lansingstatejournal.comNew3 days ago - 58 sec
Giovanni Ribisi didn't flaunt his wedding ring after marrying Agyness Deyn as he attended the LA premiere ...

CaraMagic said...

What about Alec Baldwin?

luckylass said...

Could be Giovanni.

I had to pipe in and mention that I just saw him at an airport last month. He didn't look creepy and was nice. My luggage was falling over and I caught it in the nick of time. He said "nice catch" to me. Seemed like a pretty normal dude.

Terrier Pines said...

Daniel Day Lewis? Been married a while but wacky and very method.

Katina said...

David Cross talks about doing heroin in his stand up - but this still isn't him.

Mel said...

Rachel Weisz would definitely look stupid if she got a divorce from Daniel Craig. That said, I really don't see him as a heroin user.

Baba said...

Ribisi. Method actor? Maybe. Douchebag that would do heroin? Fer sure.
