Four For Friday- The Gay Fling That Broke Up A Marriage

It is Friday. Good Friday to be exact. Working on no sleep and not getting the day off from work is making for a very long morning. I have thought about going to sleep on the sofa in my office, but I'm sure the snoring would give away my plan. Somehow I will suck it up and be back again tomorrow and on Easter Sunday. Tomorrow will see some blind item reveals. One or two at least. Maybe more, depending on how easy it is to find some in the archives. I'm getting closer to the 20K followers on Twitter for a very juicy blind item reveal. If you would like to follow me on Twitter I am @entylawyer. There are lots of photos and Tweets on there from my very late night last night. The fact that I made it home alive speaks volumes about my booze tolerance.

This couple is a solid B list. I call them a couple but they split up shortly after a movie was filmed. Not a huge movie by any stretch, but it did feature an Academy Award nominee/winner or two. It starred an A list mostly movie actor. He has always kind of explored both sides of the fence when it comes to relationships, but does not generally hook up with men like this B list mostly movie actor who has a memorable name, but you would be hard pressed to identify all of his movies. They all kind of seem the same. His ex-wife has had a more varied career. Also B list, mostly in movies she has shown a greater range of characters. The wife was on the set and walked into the trailer of her husband and found her husband and the A list actor in full on sex mode. By the time the movie had wrapped, our actress had filed for divorce. Must have not been too big a shock though considering what happened later. I had to look up the movie because I never knew the A list actor had done anything remotely like this movie. Shows you how popular it was.

"considering what happened later"? Either she took him back or he came out the closet?

AnnWithoutAnE said...

I feel like Velvet Goldmine has something to do with this but I'm too exhausted to figure out the details :)

Anna said...

Could "considering what happened later" be a reference to a movie where the actor played a gay character?

VIPblonde said...

I've got nothing. I'm thinking the movie is probably something along the lines of "Mars Attacks!", but it's not "Mars Attacks!" Already checked; nothing fits except the multiple award-winners in it

jw12 said...

Ryan Phillippee
Gordon Levitt


Stop-loss (movie)

dragon said...

is it anyone from Show Girls. that's my movie.

Anna said...

Velvet Goldmine starred Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Christian Bale....

jw12 said...

Shoot.. Forget that bc GLH hasn't been nominated

Dale hale said...

Probably best to concentrate on B list couples that have split then track a suitable movie. Unfortunately this blind could be from something several years ago.

All about Eve said...

Tough one today, I have no clue, not many hints I think.

MontanaMarriott said...

The Kilmer's, Joanne Walley and Val Kilmer who divorced shortly after he filmed:
-The Island of Dr. Moreau with Marlon Brando
-Heat with Al Pacino
-The Ghost and The darkness with Michael Douglas

Catherine said...

tony curtis?

All about Eve said...

But is Reese B list? I consider her A list

ABlake said...

Oooh that's a GREAT guess Montana!

LottaColada said...

I really like the Val Kilmer guess! I had no idea he was divorced.

Jeff Macauley said...

For some reason I'm stuck on that recent "Playing For Keeps" movie with Gerard Butler as the A list mostly movie actor and SZJ for the oscar winner/nominee but I can't quite make it work, though I like the image of Dennis Quaid and Gerard Butler having sex and Meg Ryan walking in.

VIPblonde said...

@All about Eve She's made some real turkeys lately! I much prefer her early work. If you've never seen Freeway and SFW, rent them immediately!!

Unknown said...

Movie: AdventureLand

A List Actor: Jesse Eisenberg
B list Actor: Ryan Reynolds
B List Ex Wife: ScarJo

FrenchGirl said...

Adventureland was filmed in 2008 and Reynolds and ScarJo are separated in end of 2010

Sara said...

Catherine Keener and Dermot Mulroney. They split in 2007, the year he made Zodiac with Jake G and RDJ.

katydid said...

I like Sara's guess. I was also thinking Colin Farrell fits for the A lister that plays on both sides of the fence.

FrenchGirl said...

@Sara: nice guess (i'm not sure it fits but it's interesting)

Jennifer H. said...

So, based on something that happened later, the wife was probably not shocked at finding her husband having gay sex? I'm trying to imagine a circumstance where this makes sense. Something that came out during divorce proceedings? Like maybe he was always wanting her to dress like a guy, or he wanted a guy to join them in the bedroom, something like that.

rhinovodka said...

I thought Val Kilmer had an affair with Drew Barrymore, which is why his marriage broke up?

Love Val, even though he is a bit crazy. Hoping for a Val comeback ala The Doors era.

dragon said...

ugh this blind is boring. Detectives ya can go on Donut Break or Burritos.

Snapdragon said...

Players seem to be:
1. B-List actor with memorable name, leans towards men, married to
2. B-List actress with a more varied career than her husband's
3. A-List actor who is bi (not clear if this is public knowledge)

#2 finds #1 with #3, files for divorce before movie's wrapped (and certainly before movie's release).

Something that happens later makes circumstances under which divorce came about less of a shock.

This one is muy intriguing. No guesses but I want to see the followup on this one. *clicks "Email follow-up comments"*

Alicia said...

@ VIP - freeway was my favorite Reese movie of ALL time .. Soooo good!

I'm hoping for a Val comeback as well.. Even though he's looking more like Steven Segal these days:(

Snapdragon said...

@Alicia -- man, he was HAWT in Real Genius.

joke said...

Saw this blind before I think. People thought it was Keanu Reeves in Much Ado About Nothing with Kenneth Brannagh and Emma Thompson as the couple.

HannahBanana said...

LOVE freeway. Also though, another fine Reese performance is in Election co starring Matthew Broderick & Chris Klein. Terribly hilarious! As for the blind...no clue.

LottaColada said...

@dragon- pass me a Krispy Kreme

All about Eve said...

@VIP, I love Freeway! That's why she will always be A list to me for ever lol

VIPblonde said...

@Alicia and @Hanna Glad I'm not alone on the Freeway love!!! "My dick may not function, but I have not lost my smile" Loves it!

Dale hale said...

@joke - here is link to previous blind. http://blindgossip.com/?p=36238

Sounds like a good guess.

dragon said...

@Lotta I got u. What kinda of soda u like?

Anna Nonymous said...

Val Kilmer has always screamed bi or gay to me. for what it's worth.

Anna Nonymous said...

Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas

LottaColada said...

@dragon, a coke is fine :)

Basil said...

Does Jude Law, and Sadie Frost or Sienna Miller fit some way?

BrainyAngel said...

I think the "..because of what happened later" must mean he either came out, but I'm stumped. The one great thing that came out of all this though is the idea of Dermot Mulroney and Colin Farrell as possibly playing for both teams. I'd pay GOOD MONEY to watch them go at it...or even more to be involved in the 3-way!

di butler said...

If Eisenberg was A list, and RR was B list, in comparison. But Eisenberg is B- with C list name recognition, Ryan is B list with A list name recognition.

Fijigrrl said...

Ooh.. Love the Kilmer guess. Way to think about of the typical box!

hothotheat said...

Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Espinosa
Movie: White Hot Summer (or something along that line)
He had a scene with someone else who's since became famous, I just can't think of his name.

Haiku Askew said...

@ VIP & Alicia, agreed! Freeway is far & away my favorite Reese Witherspoon & Kiefer Sutherland movie. Kiefer was so supremely creepy in that movie. Such a well written script.

As far as the blind Val Kilmer is a possibility. I remember reading what Adam Lambert said about the play he was in with Val years before American Idol, not specifically about him but still:

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/adam-lambert-in-his-own-words-sexuality-kris-allen-and-life-after-idol-20090610 scroll down to "on experiencing discrimination"

tm0004 said...

Joke I was thinking the same I had seen blind before

mistang said...

There were a lot of actors in Wet Hot American Summer. Not sure who the A list actor would be, though. Looks like a lot of high B listers. Plus, I think the movie came out a lot earlier than his marriage to Jennifer Esposito.

katie said...

Nic Cage
John Travolta

Face Off

Patricia Arquette ( TV and movies)

They were married at the time the movie was made but separated for years before divorce was final

rejectedcarebear said...

I think the movie is The Italian Job

Couple who divorced: Jason Statham and Kelly Brook. The movie came out in 2003 and they divorced in 2004. She had a cameo on it so she was on set
Movie also starred Charlize- Oscar winner.

A List actor Edward Norton.

mistang said...

I like the 'Much Ado' guess.

rejectedcarebear said...

Okay maybe Jason and Kelly Brook weren't technically married, I think it fits.

marie-ski said...

That would be hot!

Ms. Hugener said...

B list actor who's movies all feel the same seems like a comedian or an action star perhaps?

Snapdragon said...

With a memorable name.

Andrea said...

I thought of Anna Friel and David Thewlis, they starred in London Boulevard together just before they split, with Colin Farrell, but it doesn't star any Oscar winners and I think she was the cheater in that pair.

Andrea said...

I'd forgotten Kiera Knightly was oscar nominated and she was in London Boulevard, hmm

PookieTwo said...

Like MontanaMarriott's guess but I think Sara really got it, this was a tough one. All clues seem to fit: Dermot a B-lister with a memorable name (recalling how he was always mixed up w/Dylan McDermott), married to Keener also B-list who's done more varied roles. Def a B-list couple. RDJ an A-lister who's "explored both sides" and Zodiac wasn't high-grossing but was critically acclaimed iirc.

Not sure what "happened later" that wasn't a shock though.

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Here's the IMDB listing for Wet Hot American Summer, which has a metric assload of actors: --BCoop, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garafalo, Christopher Meloni, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, David Hyde Pierce, several names I recognize as members of a comedy troupe (but I'm not sure which one; I want to say Kids in the Hall), etc. Probably not the movie in the blind, but still interesting, and I'm thinking perhaps I should try to see it some time...

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

...aaaaand once again I fuck up the URL: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0243655/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_1 *sigh*

Ms. Hugener said...

Thank you RtMP, I always wondered if an assload was considered metric or imperial...

yodelay said...

OMG @VIP & All about Eve, Freeway os one of my all time favorite movies!

Are you gonna do sex to my dead body?

Ms. Hugener said...

Please don' t be Paul Rudd, please don't be Paul Rudd...

Basil said...

@rejectedcarebear Please please please let it be Jason Statham. I have never seen one of his films, but he is probably my only celebrity crush. That man is smoking hot and I would like to think I stand a chance at least. ;-)

lzahart said...

the comedy "troupe" behind WHAS are The State- Michael Ian Black, David Wain, Michael Showalter, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney. Same gang behind Reno 911, Party Down, Michael & Michael, Stella, etc. Really funny dudes/lady.

There was actually a gay sex scene in that movie btwn MIB and BCoop FWIW.

I very highly recommend this movie for anyone who likes that kind of humor-- twisted, sarcastic, slightly on the juvenile tip (but smarter than say Billy Madison-- though I have love for that movie, these guys are a little more intellectually funny). But based on ENTY's sense of humor I can't believe he would have never heard of this movie, its an indie classic, so I am not sure it fits.

Ms. Hugener said...

Or they all had a threesome or she hooked up with the A-lister or...???

Ms. Hugener said...

I think the wording at the end seems odd and we all know how Enty loves to drop hints in the last line, what about the movie Click? Get it, remote? Christoper Walken is in it, and he seems like a fit for the A lister I always thought maybe walking in on some gay sex was what made Natalie Wood bail off the boat like a bat outta hell...

Seachica said...

Joke -- that's a great guess. And gives me the dads, because I adore Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson together, and that movie.

Lisa said...

Didn't Catherine Keener turn lesbian?

Aresty said...

I am seconding what Joke said- this is definitely Keanu Reeves as the A lister, with Kenneth Branaugh (memorable name, same type of movie roles) who was married to Emma Thompson (varied character roles). They were all in "Much Ado About Nothing" -directed by Kenneth Branaugh. That was a different type of part for Keanu Reeves. Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branaugh divorced not long after this movie was made. This was also in another BV.

Dale hale said...

Don't any of you idiots look at links. Clearly @joke has it and it has been revealed by other sites. Much ado about nothing.

Jenn said...

Well, if it is Val The Goddamn Batman Kilmer, then later he did play Big Gay Perry in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which is one of my very favorite movies. It stars my teen crush, RDJ as well. Val plays a cool, badass, gay P.I.

nevermindthat said...

Good guess Sara but shouldn't it have said the A List was married as well if it was RDJ who is or was bi.

nevermindthat said...

Good guess Sara but shouldn't it have said the A List was married as well if it was RDJ who is or was bi.

Steampunk Jazz said...

@Jenn, I love Kiss kiss, I try to tell everyone about it. Crackling dialogue, noir plot, Funny as hell during Xmas! RDJ! Val Kilmer!

Moonmaid said...

Val Kilmer's wife caught him with a woman - it was much reported on back in the day, because she had just had a baby.

ClaptonsLayla said...

Considering what happened later. ..for that reference i want to say John Travolta. Did he ever work with reese witherspoon? Lol
But wanna say travolta for that clue.

Agent**It said...

I thought Helena Bonham Carter was the reason behind the Kenneth/Emma divorce?

bangbang said...

Just for kicks, devito and rhea pearlman.

bangbang said...

Movie the Lorax, a lister Zac Efron. Totally shocking.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I was guessing Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise on the set of Rock of Ages, but it doesn't fit.

Also wish KatyP. was an actress, then it would be Rusty and Tom.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

I keep thinking of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger (with the angry little piggy phonecall as the thing that happened after). I just can't find an A-lister who was in a movie with him around 2000 that wasn't succesful, except Hugh Grant as the A lister, but Nothing Hill was a huge hit. So doesn't fit -.-
I would be fitting though, since Huge also got single soon after because he was caught with his pants down on top of a transsexual hooker.

rejectedcarebear said...

Kiss Kiss is my favorite movie! I make everyone watch it and they all love it. The director and writer Shane Black is from my hometown and he's directing Iron Man 3!

Gabby said...

Wet Hot American Summer was released in 2001 and filmed, I believe, in 2000. Bradley Cooper married Jennifer Esposito in 2006 and divorced in 2007, so that timeline does not match up.
