Blind Item Almost Revealed

February 22, 2013

This C+ list actress was giving an interview about her almost A list mostly movie actor co-star and talked about meeting his boyfriend and what a wonderful couple they were. The reporter just sat there with her mouth open and could not believe what she was hearing because the actor in question has boards nailed over his closet. It was only after a publicist happened to stop by when the reporter was confirming the details that the whole thing got quashed and the reporter got an exclusive with the actor to talk about the movie and the next movie, but nothing else.

The actress is foreign born. The movie didn't fare that well, but our actor doesn't care because he has the franchise reboot/continuation

Yep.

Freya said...

Gemma Arterton/Jeremy Renner
Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

Debbie Taylor said...

Is it really Jeremy renner? He has always shot those rumors down. In fact he doth protest too much

Lizzie du said...

This is supposed to be peeta from the hunger games. This actress was from diff movie.

lesbianeatwhat said...

why is he hiding it. Why not just freakin own it? for any homophobic fan base you lose you make up for with a strong gay fanbase. Hiding it is the same as saying your ashamed of who you are, i feel sorry for you bro.

Freya said...

Oh and Avengers/Mission Impossible V/Jason Bourne for the franchise(s)

Anna said...

The actress is either malevolent or is 12. It's the only reason I could see "accidentally outing" someone when it wasn't that person's choice to be outed.

Tina Mallette said...

Renner is the franchise king it seems.

V said...

Josh Hutcherson/Adrianne Palicki during press for Red Dawn?

Jeremy Renner doesn't make sense because he has Avengers and Bourne, he's also currently starring in American Hustle which is an serious Oscar contender.

Sherry said...

Maybe he's fine with being out but the publicist/studio is hiding him. That happens a lot.

V said...

Isabel Lucas not Adrianne P.

Freya said...

@V Hi! That's the BI is stating. He doesn't care that H&G bombed because he has the franchises to back him up. Lucky him! lol

Vera L- said...

I was thinking Prometheus for the movie with Noomi Rapace for the actress but can't think who the guy would be. Not Fassbender...

V said...

@Freya, oh I see, I see. I totally misread the almost reveal info. Super hungover this morning...too much wine and sugar last night!

Blondie! said...

I mis-read it at first and thought it was written. "boards nailed over his coffin.." Why, I have no idea.

SaintsFan said...

HA HA I read it as coffin as well.

jane3113 said...

Another option - Chris Pine
Franchise Reboot - the Jack Ryan franchise
Continuation - Star Trek

Not sure which co-star outed him, if this is him.

Freya said...

@V I had to read it twice too.
No wine last night but more sugar than usual.

jane3113 said...

The C+ lister re: Chris Pine could be Isla Fisher doing press for Rise of the Guardians.

Tina Mallette said...

If you are openly parading your boyfriend and perhaps new baby ehem to all your cast members, it seems to suggest a subliminal wish to be out of the closet.

I seem to recall a blind by Ted C that an actor who came to Hollywood and was pretty much unknown did not deny that he was gay, showed up with a boyfriend to a Hollywood party but once he got some success, the PR said we gotta shut it all down and reinvent you. Now that could have been any of a number of actors. You really must have to do some tap dancing to hide that. But then the question is can you even trust your cast mates to keep their mouths shut.

American Hustle was not out in Feb 2013, no one would have known it was an Oscar contender at that point, I'd guess.

V said...

@Freya, I think the sugar is worse than the wine. I think my dinner last night pretty much consisted of candied walnuts, buttercream frosting, and chess bars...very bad plan!

V said...

@Tina, Ted C accidentally outed Jeremy in his old column. This was suspected as one of the reasons E! let him go.

Flora Goforth said...

The reason actors don't come out is foreign markets (i.e., Russia). Even here in the US, states that recognize same sex marriage are still in the minority.

Renoblondee said...

Ted also said Chris Pine is not gay. About the only one in his world. haha

bellaluna said...

For some reason, I 'm thinking Tiny Tom. Isn't his new *ahem* girlfriend foreign-born and being groomed by the CO$ for her role as his beard.

Wife. I mean wife. (No, I really don't.)

lesbianeatwhat said...

@Flora i never thought of that! Very insightful ty!

jane3113 said...

Bellaluna - that's a good guess. He has the Mission Impossible continuation and Top Gun reboot.
That chick from Oblivion is foreign born.

sandybrook said...

I thought CoS assigned Laura prepon to TommyGirl last month.

auntliddy said...

I really like Renner, and as a hetero, i have laugh at my disappointment he is same sex oriented. Like he and I were ever going to meet and date, lololol. Still........

FlirtyChick74 said...

@lesbianeatwhat: I think that the actor is fine being out but the publicists like to keep that info in their purse and slowly pull it out just incase the actor's star is fading or something big requires them to do it. I wouldn't be too surprised if the actors aren't in on it themselves. It's a nice safety net to have handy.

di butler said...

See, I've never gotten Renner's appeal, myself. And yeah, I think the Renner reveal is 100% why Ted C was booted. I remember how awful those threads were to read, tho. Those insane Robsten fans? Dear heavens, were those nuts!

timebob said...

I remember Jeremy on Bravo's It Factor and either this guy was so smart and saw the future and his A list status down the road, he never came off gay or alluded to any gay relationships imho I think he plays both sides equally. But really cares about his career more than dealing with his sexual orientation.

Sandy said...

A couple of years ago Renner showed up at the Oscars or GGs with Kevin Spacey, and it was totally obvious then which team he's on.

And yeah - I think he's rather like Zachary Quinto and doesn't care, but his publicist[s] shoved him back in the closet because of those potential franchises (and the 10% of his salary). As James Dean once said, you've gotta pay the piper...

Gayeld said...

Sounds like a wonderful dinner to me. :-)

Leia prince said...

Someone posted elsewhere that MI4 was the reboot franchise. Nonsense in my opinion. The MI franchise is not in "reboot" statue until Cruise gives up the reigns.

Also, Gemma Aarton is considered by this site as a b-list actress (not c).

My guess is Total Recall / Colin Farrell
this movie was a pure reboot, part of a franchise and did poorly @ the box office. The actor was known to have gd's but none over the last few years publically, his career is fragile - all the reasons for PR to be super protective about any "gay" reveals.

Leia prince said...

One more additional: as for Renner, I wouldn't be surprised @ bi or gay. Or, that he has serious hetero psyche issues that lend to very dark and perverse fetishes.

What I don't agree with is the notion that Bourne Legacy could be the reboot in this blind. BL was a continuation, not a reboot. It would then suggest that Rachel Weiss is the c-list actress - which again, according to this site she's b-list.

The recent revitalized Star Trek is a reboot in my thinking.
