Blind Item #8

This A+ list mostly movie actor from some of the biggest movies of all time who everyone thinks is gorgeous has lung cancer after 30+ years smoking. He is hopeful of a full recovery, but friends and family don't think he will live more than another year. He is too far gone.

Not Redford!!

Cindy said...

Redford? Though he didn't age well :(

SKOR said...

I though Redford too, but he is 76....very rare for someone to start smoking after age 30.
Is Harrison Ford still considered "gorgeous"?

DewieTheBear said...

Cindy, I always thought that was too much sun. I didn't think Redford was a smoker. Years ago, I think when Havana came out, Elvis Mitchell described Redford as "leather with hair."

He's an early front-runner for Best Actor, though. Probably would have won at Cannes had his film been screened in competition.

~Z~ said...

I don't even think Ford is handsome, but I think this is him. Sucks.

Cathy said...

Age-wise, Clooney would fit.

Silly Girl said...

My first thought was Pacino. Not sure about the gorgeous part though! Biggest movies of all time? Quite possibly.

libby said...

Harrison Ford did Star Wars AND Indiana Jones--'Biggest of all time'. I know I don't have to remind y'all of that, but that's why i fear this is him. Also the age--30 years of smoking fits his age range better than RR.

Yes, HF is known as pretty gorgeous his whole life.

MAC said...

Harrison Ford was my thought.

Count Jerkula said...

Eastwood? Reynolds?

Sounds like another story derived from the naughty nurse blind from yesterday. I don't remember what kept that dude bedridden though.

sandybrook said...

I hope Tom Cruise smokes. :( btw Leah Rimini quit Scientilogy according to Page Six sick of all the interrogations and bs

SueRH said...

DiNiro?

msgirl said...

sandybrook, yeah I read that too! After she asked "Where's Shelley" at a party they put her in the deep box.

Can't wait for some secrets to be spilled!

8=====D - RememberKermitGosnell said...

Ford is gorgeous? First news. Handsome at best, as I have seen my whole life reading different magazines. I don't know it first hand as I'm straight and don't care about men beauty, but according to comments from females around, I don't recall HF as "gorgeous".

Gorgeous were Redford, Clooney, Pitt, Paul Newman...

Cathy said...

i like the harrison ford guess, but the 30+ years of smoking sounds like someone in their 50's or 60's rather than their 70's.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

What Enty isn't telling you (out of the kindness of his heart), is that this actor is also suffering from psoriasis, warts, and Munchausen by Proxy syndrome. Breaks my heart.

Cindy said...

Depp smokes :(

Jessi said...

Very sad for whoever this is, but I just can't have this be my Hubbel!!! I don't know if I will be able to recover when this man goes.

What about Michael Douglas? Other Men who everyone thinks are gorgeous? George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp? Lets hope it's none of these fine young fellas though either.


rhinovodka said...

I thought of Viggo Mortensen, but not sure if he smokes.

NomNom83 said...

Depp started smoking at the age of 12 and he just turned 50.

sandybrook said...

Yeah if Leah doesn't mysteriously disappear she has a lot to say. We all may be aiming too old for an answer here a 30+ year smoker can be anything g from 45 up. I bet hes in his early 50s no more than that which is why I'm rooting for Cruise although he looks healthy.

Shelly Miscavige said...

I'M RIGHT HERE, LEAH! RESCUE ME!!!!

I'm glad that she's doing something, FINALLY. I've only been hidden away for six years, but who's counting?

MAC said...

Eastwood and Reynolds are good guesses too. I was thinking that it was probably someone in their early 50's too, but the plus sign after 30 could mean 50 or 60 years of smoking...

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

So sorry guys, but it's who you think it is. This isn't something you make up, exaggerate, or keep secret.

Margaret said...

Depp was my first thought too...

Cheryl S said...

Liam Neeson?

rajahcat said...

and who did we think it was?

Stacey Charter said...

my first thought was Clooney... NOT MY GEORGIE!

~Z~ said...

Not trying to be a jerk, but what biggest movie of all time was Redford in? I'm totally blanking out.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

rajahcat, yes, that one.

D Brown said...

Looking for younger smokers I would add Denzel W., B. Pitt and M. Gibson as guys who might have been considered gorgeous.

veee said...

30+ years of smoking could mean they started at age 18 0r 20; putting them in the Depp, Pitt, Clooney age range. sads.

Stacey Charter said...

@Z - You should IMDB him because I will miss a ton but The Natural, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, The Way we Were, The Sting, All the President's Men

KingB said...

The Sting

~Z~ said...

Thanks for your reply Stacey! But I don't consider those that big, do you?
I would consider Star Wars one of the biggest of all time.
Have a great night! ♥

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Sorry guys, it's Alan Alda.

rajahcat said...

oh that one

Snowy Owls said...

Z those old Robert Redford movies were considered blockbusters in their day. He was very bankable.
Pierce Brosnan is a smoker, he was in a few James Bond movies that did well but not sure if they would be considered the biggest of all time.
I would think if someone is in recovery for lung cancer that means they are in remission.

Tae Scott said...

Gorgeous is the clue. Clooney look great at his age my first thought was warren Beaty and Robert Redford. I'm going with Redford.

Anna Nonymous said...

I'm sad to say I also think that it's Harrison Ford for this one. So sad. No one does that gruff poker face like him.

Amartel said...

Everyone thinks Alan Alda is "gorgeous?" Seriously?
And isn't he more famous for TV (MASH) than movies though he's done a lot of great movie roles?

Topper Madison said...

Sean Connery.

~Z~ said...

Yup, I do agree Snowy Owls (I LOVE owls so much, they are ultra cool!), The Way We Were was huge, but earlier all I could think of was the Sting, even though I always knew him as a big movie star! :)

Snowy Owls said...

I first thought of Warren Beatty too but he doesn't smoke. He smoked for a few years but that was it for him. Surprising but good for him for not following the crowd back then.

Chris J said...

Your list sounds about right.

msgirl said...

Now I know my age, are you kidding me? Redford was A+++++ and his movies were HUGE, both critically and financially. And he was considered GORGEOUS, didn't even pale in the movies with Paul Newman. God I feel old!

I never considered Ford gorgeous.

Cerebral Vortex said...

Like rhinovodka - my first thought was Viggo Mortensen - he's in his mid-50's so the age is right, but I'm not sure he would be considered A+.

Cerebral Vortex said...

. . . and Viggo is a heavy smoker.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Nice, Amartel, disparage someone's looks when they have cancer. This blog has gotten so mean!

Frufra said...

I think everyone's too hung up on the 30+ years clue - Enty's not always that accurate with stuff like that. Gorgeous is the key, as is A+ and biggest movies of all time. I'm thinking Redford, or Harrison Ford. But when I think of a gorgeous former A+, I'm leaning towards Redford.

But, hello, Burt Reynolds was considered quite the hunk when he was in his prime. And Smokey and the Bandit? Does it get any bigger than that?

Dishtlk said...

He does, enty commented once on his was breaking his cardinal rule by getting photographed carrying cigarettes... Plus Nicole was the one who paid the paps $1000 to delete pics of her smoking.
Dunno this is him but it's not impossible...

Dishtlk said...

"Once his son" I... I... Don't even know what that original jibberish is...

Just Lurking Don't Troll Me! said...

Richard Gere? Gorgeous could be a clue to "Pretty Woman" and he was so beautiful when he was younger.

nunaurbiz said...

Harrison Ford smokes POT, which I don't think is linked to lung cancer, is it?

DK about Redford, but never heard that about him. I know a masseuse who had him as a client and HATED touching his warty, wrinkly back :-p

Peter O'Toole - Lawrence of Arabia, Caligula, My Favorite Year, et al. His film list is so long it needs it's own Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_O%27Toole_filmography

Gorgeous. BIG smoker. My personal fave of his gorgeousness on celluloid: "How to Steal a Million" with Audrey Hepburn.

Karen Williams said...

But the language says "everyone thinks IS gorgeous". Present tense, not past tense. Who's really good looking and 45+? I don't think Beatty, Redford, or Ford could be considered "gorgeous" now. Does Hugh Jackman or Daniel Craig smoke?

Brenda L said...

Wow..never thought about Richard Gere....

Bravura said...

Nooo this cannot be Liam or Richard. And Liam IS gorgeous (there is no need for past tenses when it comes to him).

I honestly hope this is one of those fake blinds because all of the actors mentioned would be a shame to lose to lung cancer :(

Nicola Wilks said...

Hi there - long time lurker first time poster. I was thinking Antonio Banderas. He's been looking really unhealthy lately - very skinny and wearing a lot of foundation. Not sure if everyone thinks he's gorgeous but I do! It's very sad whoever it is.

jensauce said...

Eastwood

trudi said...

Banderas is a smoker. He was considered gorgeous just a few short years ago.

Jaiden_S said...

Harrison Ford

love/hate said...

Clooney or Depp would be rough. I think either of them or Harrison. Maybe don't smoke, dudes. Just a thought.

Sherry R. said...

It doesn't fit, but it made me think of Kirk Russell. Years ago a friend of mine was trying to do some tests on him and he kept running off every 5 minutes to have a cigarette. Such a chain smoker.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Banderas looks AWFUL right now!

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Nope. It's Alda. All Alda. all the time.

Sherry R. said...

Wendy Williams said she was surprised Antonio's marriage lasted this long, what with his wife having bad plastic surgery and all. Rude.

hothotheat said...

But what big movies has Banderas done?

I hate to think this is Viggo, not everyone considers him gorgeous? I refuse to believe it's Clooney. I'm leaning towards Depp. Unfortunately. Or maybe HFord.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Harrison Ford

Terrin said...

Mel Gibson. I think he smokes like 2 packs a day.

I saw that list and thought: Oh shit, Keanu??? NOOO!!!

Butch cassidy, the candidate, jeramiah johnson, watergate, sneakers, river runs thru it ordinary oeople- last two directed.

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Ted Danson

Chris said...

Johnny Depp would fit - he's done some TV, but "mostly movies"...but then again, so has George Clooney, but Depp does have some of the biggest grossing movies of all time, age wise he fits - i hope it's not him :(

LoserLiz said...

Johnny Depp does fit, but is he still gorgeous?

Dandy said...

or keanu reeves

lostathome said...

I like Richard Gere for this except that he hasn't been in anything that would be considered one of the biggest hits ever. It gotta be someone older because any of the under 60 group probably would have made tabloids by now.

Ruby said...

I read this as Brad Pitt but I don't think he's been in some of the biggest movies of all time. Johnny Depp fits better

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

Arnold Schwarzenegger FTW.

Count Jerkula said...

Could be Keeanu. He seems dumb enough to be told he's got cancer, then try BS snake oil treatments until it is too late.

MissMatador said...

I also thought Sean Connery, and it would be somene 50+

di butler said...

Agreeing w Count. Keanu has been in China way linger than necessary filming his movie, and maybe his weight gain is corticosteroids? Gah, hope not!

short le chic said...

I just can't stop thinking it's Bead Pitt...

Morgan Rodgers said...

I think it may be Robert Redford and the line "hello gorgeous" ??

shopgirl said...

Most people start smoking in high school around age 15 so it's probably someone in their mid-40s or early 50s. Guess we'll find out next year when we've all forgotten.

PotPourri said...

Wasn't Keanu devastated because his sister had cancer? I don't think he'd play around with it.

Love all the suggestions, and reminds me of the gorgeous men I've had to dream about these past 30 years! Depp, Keanu, Clooney, Banderas, Brosnan (i'm throwing him in!), Gere, Pitt, Cruise, Jackman. Hey, who's the jerk that left off Russell Crowe?! I'm telling him y'all all left him off and he will be at your house tomorrow to throw a telephone at you!

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

It's going to be a total mind fuck when one of you is right a year from now. I'm marking it on my calendar right now.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Bruce Willis. Just cuz he's bald. ;)

CelebrityGroupie said...

"Hello, gorgeous" is from Funny Girl with Barbara Streisand and...Omar Shariff, an extremely handsome actor.

Tyger Lilly said...

My first thought was Depp... I've heard stories about him reeking of cigarettes. Maybe that has something to do with why his non-marriage ended? A lot of women won't stick around if a guy wants to keep killing himself (by smoking)?

Ann Nah Nah Mess said...

And you would be wrong, but kudos for publishing your completely superficial beliefs about relationships.

Paper trail said...

But Keanu got rid of his lung cancer by going into hell after Rachel Weisz. So he's cured.

Antonio Banderas does look bad. He was the puss in boots voice for Shrek, and that plus the sequels were big movies. He also had the Spy Kids series which did well with the kids. Plus Zorro. It could be him. So terrible, whoever it is.

J said...

The only real chain smoker forever anyone has mentioned is Mel Gibson.

Charlie Sheen: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2263565/Charlie-Sheen-gets-chilling-warning-40-day-habit-appearance-Dr-Oz-television-show.html

Count Jerkula said...

40/day aint nothin, only 2 packs. I'f I was coked out of my mind for weeks at a time, I'd be at 4pks a day. Of course he does spend a ton of time porkin whores, so maybe I would expect him to be at 3pks.

RowdyRodimus said...

Not sure if it's him or if anyone would call him gorgeous, but I've heard stuff about Samuel L. Jackson being bad off lately.

nyc summer said...

On Charlie Sheen's "Bucket List":
1) Try to help Brooke get sober (last attempt).
2) Give Denise full custody of my boys, 'cuz Brooke will probably NOT stay sober.
3) Try to remarry Denise, so that we have less Probate issues.
4) If Denise won't marry me again, set up iron-clad Trust, & buy her a new, larger home, so that she can continue taking care of my kids.
5) Engage in random acts of kindness, such as: helping Lindsay Lohan pay off her IRS debt.
6) Fly to Scotland, & party with Nessie... http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2013/07/11/charlie-sheen-reportedly-visits-scotland-searches-for-loch-ness-monster/

The truth is out there, Just "Google" all items on "Bucket List".

The Blind is purposefully, & slightly fudged.
