Blind Item #12

This foreign born B+ list mostly movie actress broke down in tears for several hours on the set of her new movie. Apparently a lack of food for several days and no sleep because of the meth type drugs she was taking just caused her to have a total breakdown. This movie is also a completely different experience for her.

Hey Step!

Hey Kristin! :-)

Lily Collins - she's in the next lot of photos and looks rough

Kristin said...

You're probably right Step.

I was about to guess Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl. Fincher could probably been an actresses to tears.

I so wish Reese Witherspoon was the lead in Gone Girl
I think she would have been perfect.......

Affleck is dead on though

The Dude said...

Enty you forgot the part about her crying alone on a bench.

Seven of Eleven said...

Right there with you, rajahcat. Reese would have been perfect for the role. Come on, Tracy Flick!

And handing her baby to a stranger.

Reese is producing Gone Girl.

Tina Mallette said...

Rosamund is British, they train their actors and actresses to be tough or at least tougher than American actors and actresses IMO, with a couple of exceptions both ways. Besides don't think Rosamund is B+

Kidman.

rajahcat said...

true that Tina

Kristin said...

@Tina Train them how so? No snark, honestly curious about what that means.

Tori said...

And by meth-type drugs, you mean Adderall or Ritalin?

crila16 said...

Yeah...what's going on with Lilly Collins. She IS looking really rough lately, especially in that picture.

Kristin - English actors are actually classically trained actors - they study hard, and know their craft. Unlike here, where most actors make it for no reason other than looks. You can always tell a trained actor from one who isn't - the ones who are classically trained at Yale, Julliard or NYU. I think because they have a solid background and aren't thrust into fame too early, they have more backbone and integrity so don't turn as much to drugs, which many seek because of deep insecurity.

@dude - after handing off her baby to a stranger.

Sorry Reno - was too excited to look at next comment

Texas - GMTA

msgirl - a good summation of why so many English (and Australian) actors/actresses get shows in US in addition to not being substance abusers. People would be amazed how many leading men/women on tv today are actually English and Australian because they all have excellent American accents.

Queenie said...

And now I'm convinced you're Lucy Lawless

Stepforded said...

No, I'm not.

Stepforded said...

@texas rose - make that Australasian - Rose from Two and a Half Men is a Kiwi who has the American accent down pat, and there are quite a few other Kiwis who are working, and have worked, in the US with great success.

I don't get why people assume that everyone who works in the industry has dabbled in drugs or is an addict - it's like any other industry in my experience - comes down to the person. I know of more bankers that snort their bonus cheques up their noses than I do actors who do the same.

@msgirl makes interesting points but for the record, Rosamund Pike wasn't a product if drama school, she went to private school then attended Oxford.
