Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

November 1, 2013

You don't hear from this actor very much any longer. Not that old but he has kind of gravitated away from acting because of his charity work. He was on a very hot show for a very long time and then stepped into some more good luck on a very very popular cable show which made sure he won't ever have to work again. He has a great partner who was one of the biggest movie stars in the world at one point which was achieved despite any real acting talent.

Our actor has used his money and grants from others to fly people around the world building homes in some of the most impoverished places on earth. His group which is similar to Habitats For Humanity has built about 1000 homes for families. They have also built schools and hospitals and really focus on areas of the world which have nothing. He tries to give them something. he also makes sure not to leave empty buildings and tries to stock each house or school or hospital with every thing it needs to have to succeed.

It is pretty cool that he is willing to give up a fairly successful career to focus on others.

+ a million. Just incredible. His partner for those who are unaware is Bo Derek. They've been together for 14 years.

@a Non a Miss - You're right, he does mostly voice work now. So I don't know that he's 'given up his career' after all. But good on him for all his charity work.

Meanie Rhysie said...

Mmmm. Hot man just got hotter. :)

sandybrook said...

So Enty lists this back in November and the other day has him cheating on Bo Derek because he wants younger? But he did sorta slam Bo in this blind.

Kristin said...

"You don't hear from this actor very much any longer." *WINK*

Thanks Enty, but how do you think we all know where to go for our pharmaceutical needs or where to get world-class chili cheese nachos?

Ps-Jessi nailed this one.

Steampunk Jazz said...

I knew my love was not misplaced... :'( Who is his no real talent A list movie partner?

angie said...

Oops, brain fart. He and Bo have been together 12 years, since 2002.

Aidan was the man! Couldn't figure out how Carrie could break up with him over Mr. Big

Sorry , blogger slow. Thanks for the Bo Derek answer

Jessi said...

Awwww yea!! I got this right!

Sarah said...

He makes sure they live at the corner of happy and healthy

Kourtney Kardashian said...

That is very nice for him to do. Kim and Kay are big on charity. I know if they weren't so busy they would be flying around the world helping out in person.

Kimba said...

@sandybrook, exacts, I guess John is a heart of gold kindofcheater.
Love him and Bo together.

Nancy said...

I do love John Corbett and this just solidifies it. Hopefully the blind from the other day is not him.

Bruce Jenner said...

I never knew who he was until Sex and the City. Kris and the girls loved that damn show. Their favorite was Mr. Big. Who has two thumbs and is happy to watch whatever I wanna watch now?

aemish said...

Norhtern Exposure was awesome. <3 John Corbett.

Gypsy said...

I met him once at the State Fair in Dallas during NE days. He is wicked tall and super sweet. And so freaking cute I could die. Very nice fellow.

Lord Disick said...

They made you watch Sex and the City? I'm appalled!

auntliddy said...

Outstanding.

MISCH said...

The voice-overs bring in a steady flow of cash…good for him

Anna Belle said...

he grew up poor...single mom was a waitress...that stays with you

Renoblondee said...

Awesome!

Seven of Eleven said...

I'm jealous, @Gypsy!

Love his voice and he was so hot on United States of Tara.

Candyland said...

Ah, Aidan. Love him as the voice of Walgreen's!

GPS74 said...

I may have to start an impromptu SATC marathon this afternoon. Love John Corbett.

shopgirl said...

Good for him but a quick peek at his imdb & he's been fairly busy, and continues to be. Many actors would envy so many acting gigs.

Avril Lavigne Kroeger said...

One time, I gave a bag of clothes to people who were affected by Hurricane Katrina. It was the least I could do; those people had lost everything and I thought my clothes would be helpful.

rajahcat said...

have always liked him a lot.....

witwritergirl said...

Carrie did not make the right choice.

Sunny said...

@Simon
Holla. Aiden was my dream guy (even with that fringe jacket)

Sunny said...

I hope John Corbett does VoiceOver work 4eva. Talk about smutty tingles

Susan said...

Wow. Just lovely.

And I just ate at Applebees (NOT by choice.) At least maybe some of my money will go to a good cause, and of course help the kids waiting on us at Applebees. I just loathe chains...

Well, good for John Corbett. Sounds like a great soul. And I always loved him on Sex and the City.

Princess Nobody said...

I love you for this, Sarah :)

TalksTooMuch said...

Very cool!

Team Big

teresa crane said...

LOL that fringe jacket! And all those turquoise rings

Jacq said...

Boy, is that the truth!!

Mama Abroad said...

Well I always had an irrational irritation whenever he was on TV so I'd better rethink that.

Moonmaid said...

I think what he is doing right now might be considered a fairly successful career!

Halfsicilian said...

Northern Exposure is my all-time favorite show. I'm happy to hear he is a nice guy.

MissMatador said...

Aww I love him even more now! He started off as a hairdresser, nice to know he hasn't forgotten his humble beginnings.

evie2345 said...

I know, I likedhim so much better than Big.

Erik said...

Love Northern Exposure.

ldylkng said...

He's on Parenthood

Rach Around said...

@Simon: agreed! And he made his own furniture! (Portlandia reference)

car54 said...

Love John Corbett. I always notice his voice on commercials.

Jslo said...

Bo Derek is a right-wing, proselytizing, tea partying homophobe.

Erik said...

@Jslo nobody's perfect.

KittyKatMeow said...

Lovvvvvvvvve John Corbett!
