Blind Item #4

This B list actress who divides her time between stage and screen and television is a good actress. Not the greatest person in the world but a good actress. She was on the phone the other day while standing in line for her car and was screaming at her agent or manager. Basically even though she is twice the age of the character she apparently thought she could still pass for a 20 year old and was ticked off her agent couldn't get her the role or at least a chance to read for it. When she got off the phone she asked a man standing close by how old he thought she was. He was trying to be nice but guessed an age two years older than our actress. "That's f**king ridiculous," was her response.

Glinda the Good Witch would never!

TalksTooMuch said...

Oooh, FSP, the one with the hair?

Kristen Chenowith?

I really hope not.

FSP said...

No, the other one. Kristin Chenowith.

This seems like pretty standard lead-actress behaviour. Didn't Nicole Kidman demand a role in 'Twilight' that would have her playing someone in the same age group?

ITA....Kristin Chenowith

Good one Rach.

Oh Topper, Laura Linney would never! She's a total class act.

Idina Menzel

I second Idina, I think playing a 20 year old in the rent movie convinced her she could do it (even though that was years ago too)

Gayeld said...

@hippy chk. She would never. If she wanted the part, she would go and take it. None of this nampy-pampy whining to an agent about it.

Seven of Eleven said...

Elpheba would never!

Christine Baranski is like, triple the age of a 20-year-old. Plus, she's too fab to bother with stupid little girl parts.

Emmy Rossum

Depends on who the 20-ish character is. Like if they were making a film about Lindsay Lohan, 60-year-old Debbie Harry would be perfect and believable.

Idina's on Broadway right now.

Not Kristin. She was in Oklahoma with family.
