Today's Blind Items - Kindness

This Academy Award winning actress who likes to pretend she is foreign born even though she isn't also likes to pretend she didn't film the first few movies of her career. Anyway, she was being a great mom and on a field trip with her kids to a museum when she noticed that another group of kids from another school only had ten kids at the museum while most of the other schools had fifty kids or more. It turns out that the school district had no funding to have school buses take kids on field trips so it was up to individual parents to arrange for rides and carpooling. So, our actress spoke to someone at the school and the next thing you know the school had its very own $250K school bus to take kids to activities. She also paid for several parents to get certified as school bus drivers.

I hope you are feeling better today@Kristin I'm still a bit indisposed from last night though :(

Mama Abroad said...

I also thought Nicole. Born in Hawaii I think.

Mademoiselle Angelina Jolie?

Dena said...

Goop's the only one I can think of that would like to be considered foreign-born.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Goop? Seeing as how her first movie was Spielberg's HOOK, I don't blame her

Renoblondee said...

Nicole.

Kim Kardashian said...

When Nori is old enough for school, Ye and I are going to do this too!

KhloeK said...

Kimmie, I thought you two already bought several schools!

msgirl said...

It does sound like Nicle - everyone thinks she is from Autrailia. But would Enty admit she was being a great Mom?

Kim Kardashian said...

We backed out of the deal. Ye and I are still discussing what kind of accent we want Nori to have. California dialect just seems so boring. We're thinking of moving to Paris or London for a few years when she starts talking; just long enough for her to pick up the accent

Bruce Jenner said...

I still have nightmares about taking tests.

bruce, how was your surgery? your hair looks great btw

fontlover said...

If we pick London, we're gonna buy a dental school too.

Nothing but the best for Mason and Penny as well. Kourtney is on top of it.

Naomi said...

I don't think it would be Goop, she'd have issued a press release about her kindness

One yellow school bus doesn't cost $250,000, unless it was some sort of big-ass Greyhoundish rock star thing. The regular yellow school buses run about $40,000. Maybe she bought the school 4 or 5 or 6 of them. Anyway, seriously doubt this was Gwyneth. This is a woman that just doesn't have empathy and kindness in her.

sandra bullock ? her mom her mum is german but i don't know if she fakes not being born in us or not but i definately know she doesn't want her first few movies to vanish also the bus driver clue

Cheryl said...

It reads like Nicole. She doesn't do anything to remind you that she was born in Hawaii, and commenters on other blogs have said that she and Keith do regular parent things around Nashville. I'm assuming that the money includes the cost of the bus and funding for activities. Some of her old movies are quite good though, but maybe she doesn't talk about the pre-Tom movie years.

Anna Belle said...

Uma & her fake europea accent...

Bruce Jenner said...

That's right Scott. My grandkids will have the best of everything.

Ozvegie said...

Nicole made a movie here in Australia as a teen called bmx bandits that she isn't happy to talk about in interviews

-P said...

Susan Sarandon?

Bubbles said...

Yeah, what kind of school bus costs 250k? Unless this is the school of Rock and it's a fully decked out tour bus, I doubt it.

Had to be a fleet of buses because a school district would obviously have multiple schools.

SueRH said...

Is Sunday old enough to be in school

auntliddy said...

That is kind and helpful I like. I can buy Goop for this.

crila16 said...

Goop and Madonna are the only 2 names that come to mind...but Madonna didn't win an oscar, and Gwynnie the Poos first big movies were decent. Unless Bounce and Duets count...those were horrible.

I doubt it was Nicole. The nanny or Keith would be the ones taking the kid on a field trip.

Aoife said...

Not Goop. Not Nicole.

I got nothing.

Kidman was born in Hawaii but moved to Australia, with her AUSTRALIAN parents, when she was four. I've never heard her deny Hawaii as her place of birth.

I do think we ought to let her self-identify as Australian since, erm, she is. Wtf, guys?

ms snarky said...

Kidman was born in Hawaii, but her parents were Australian, in Hawaii for post-grad studies. That makes her Australian, but she happened to be born out of the country. Much like John McCain. Or a zillion military babies.
