Blind Item #9 - Kindness

This British actor that everyone loves. No, not that one. A little older. Yeah, Academy Award nominee/winner. Good looking guy. Dropped almost $1000 bucks into a homeless man's lap because he was on the way to the airport and leaving the country and wouldn't need it he said.

Firth.

Kari S said...

Colin firth?

Jessi said...

As in Hugh? isn't he Australian?

Maybe Collin Firth? But I am guessing he's the "Not that one".

sandybrook said...

Anthony Hopkins

StewMcG said...

Alan Rickman?

GhettochipMalfunction said...

Michael Caine? Ian McKellan is a good guess.

TalksTooMuch said...

Does New Zealand also mean British? Because I also think it is Ian McKellan, but he's a Kiwi

Caraface said...

Ian McKellan or Patrick Stewart.

Seven of Eleven said...

Please be Clive Owen. Please be Clive Owen.

Call me, Clive Owen!

sandybrook said...

Sean Connery once upon a time was really good looking and everyone loves him. I switching to him.

Sherry said...

Colin Firth-Good looking guy, a "little"older, award winner, British and Nice guy!

parissucksliterally said...

Colin Firth or Clive Owen.

Jackman is an Aussie.

Caraface said...

@TTM - Ian McKellan has a home in New Zealand now, but he was born in England.

The Dude said...

Sean Connery

Kristin said...

Whoops. I thought it said foreign born.

parissucksliterally said...

Ian Mckellan, Alan Rickman, Michael Caine - as much as I love them, they are not "a little older" - they are OLD. :)

Maddie said...

Colin Firth.

Take your pick from Fassbender, Cumberbatch and Hiddleston for the younger guys. All 3 are in the same 30 something age range and everyone seems to be obsessed with at least one of them.

Kristin said...

Liam Neeson or oldman

sandybrook said...

Gee no one guessed Russell Crowe?

Seven of Eleven said...

Crowe is Australian.

Harry Knuckles said...

Nice thing to do. On the other hand it is surprising how cheap and selfish some of these multi millionaire show biz people can be.

Renoblondee said...

Michael Caine.

Renoblondee said...

Isn't Liam Neeson Irish?

TalksTooMuch said...

He identifies as a Kiwi, my friend was just about tackled by him because she was wearing some native New Zealand art

sandybrook said...

@7 I was joking it says the guy is loved by everyone :)

Kristin said...

Negative. Born in UK. So was Ralph Fiennes who is also English, fine, and aging.

Discobitch said...

Sean Connery is tighter than a ducks arsehole. I say Sir PatStew :)

Stepforded said...

You guys!!

* Crowe is a New Zealander - born and raised in New Zealand but lives in Australia;
* Jackman is an Australian;
* McKellan is English;
* No, New Zealanders are not considered British any more than Americans are considered Canadians!

Seven of Eleven said...

LOL @ uncle sandy! Missed that!

I'm still going with my husband Clive Owen. That's mental!

Kristin said...

Patrick Stewart was never nominated for an Oscar.

Hammer_Girl said...

Please let this be Clive, Cumberbatch, Fassbender, or Hiddelston so I can show them that good deeds do get rewarded.

Sean said...

Not Patrick Stewart. No Oscar noms, and lives in Brooklyn.

Kristin said...

Rickman has never been nominated either.

TalksTooMuch said...

I wasn't sure if British referred to former British Empire, that's all.

aemish said...

@7of11.. lol that's great..

Ray Nicolet said...

Yeah but i would think hes still described as a British actor.

caroline david said...

Christian bale ? If he finishes Exodus'filming in Spain

Kristina Hubley said...

+1

Kristin said...

@TTM iI like your Former British Empire rules (heh). In this case I change my guess to Lewis and Clark. Preferably Clark. Everyone knows Lewis was kind if a dick to his squaw in between mapping and peace piping with the locals.

Stepforded said...

We're still part of the Commonwealth :-)

Snapdragon said...

(God I hope it's) FUCK YEAH COLIN FIRTH :D I'm with @Maddie.

caroline david said...

Not Colin Firth .His 3 last filming were in England

Snapdragon said...

Firth was recently in Toronto for the film festival / The Railway Man premiere. (September)

PugsterMom said...

Daniel Day Lewis

hothotheat said...

Not that one: Tom H. I think it's Colin Firth or Kenneth Branagh (Oscar moms:4).

Lila said...

Firth.

Could also be Ewan (Scottish is British)

question411 said...

Is there a way to be notified when so done (VIP) comments on a blind??!! I hate sifting thru them and she always has the dirt!!

ninotchka said...

I'd go with Firth - such a nice guy.

Oh HEY! epiphany, what about Colin and Mrs. Lucky Bitch Firth for a happy, faithful couple? I've only heard a cheating rumor ONE time about him in all these years and I'm not sure I believed it. Does it count if only one of them is a celeb?

Snapdragon said...

@ninotchka *perks up* Ooo. What was that rumour?

Runswithscissors said...

Looooooove Alan Rickman!

Sean Connery

Low Key said...

I cannot see this being Connery. I can see this being Hiddles, but the details don't fit.

So I guess what I'm saying is.., I got nothing.
Carry on.

auntliddy said...

love love love love love whoever this is.

ninotchka said...

@Snapdragon, the rumor was that he was banging someone at work but it was iffy. He may actually be faithful to Mrs. Lucky Bitch Firth.

@Runswithscissors - Rickman is a sex god. All he has to do is start speaking.

hothotheat said...

I thought about Ewan too but he's never been nominated for an Oscar.

FrenchGirl said...

i change my guess (Bale in Spain) for Clive Owen for THE LAST KNIGHTS filmed in Czech Republic (Spanish money is Euro like in many European countries where Czech has their own money)

Red said...

Connery is a Scot.
DDL is Irish.

Snootches said...

Kind gesture, yes. But my question is how did that kind gesture make it all the way to Enty? The sass in me smells PR. Still a nice gesture nonethess

ozzyinch said...

If New Zealanders are British, then so are Canadians.

Stepforded said...

Not sure where you got your information from, but Ian McKellen does not live in New Zealand. He was here filming for the Hobbit, but that's all.

James Cameron lives here - in the Wairarapa (just North of Wellington - and not too far from Peter Jackson); Shania Twain had land here (in the South Island), but that's now in her ex-husband's hands; and Anthony Kiedis had a farm here in the South Island but I'm pretty sure he sold it a few years ago. And the drummer from AC/DC has land in Rotorua (next to the Paradise Valley lion park).

Many, many celebs come down here to get away from it all but very few buy - and indeed to do so, requires approval from the Overseas Investment Office which is a very long and exhaustive process that is not guaranteed to get results, no matter who you are or how much money you have.

@ozzyinch Too right!

Snapdragon said...

@ninotchka, thanks. Hadn't heard that one. After that Godiva chocolate vodka party thing a few years ago and those super friendly pics with Renee Z, I do admit my mind got to wandering... what a lovely mental pic ;-D

Unknown said...

That rumour turned out to be Will Smith NOT Colin Firth.

Snapdragon said...

@Unknown, thanks! Though at first I thought you meant THIS blind, and as about to say "But Will Smith isn't British!" Ha ha.

Bikey said...

Pierce Brosnan.

MadLyb said...

Gotta be Rickman.

Keke said...

Hiddleston is possible, not cucumberpatch.

Astounding to see so much knowledge and culture in this thread.
