Blind Items Revealed

September 7, 2013

This foreign born B- list mostly television actress now who found her greatest fame on a very very hit television show before heading back to movies is now on a hit cable show. She also can't leave the bottle alone for the length of a fashion show and went through an entire pint of booze in under 20 minutes. She had the pint in her bag and kept reaching in and sipping and repeated the process for the show. As it ended she finished off the last swallow.

Emily Mortimer

Addiction is a bear, y'all

Bacon Ranch said...

That's some great timing.

Renoblondee said...

I don't know who that is. Just a vague name recognition.

annanaannnaaaa said...

So random.

sandybrook said...

She does a good job on Newsroom for someone who is always plastered Enty.

Seven of Eleven said...

Love Emily Mortimer. Her dad created Rumpole of the Bailey!

If I had to sit through a fashion show, a flask would be my bestie, too.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Maybe it was Maalox, ms. Judgmental, some of those fashions can sour a gut...

Tina Mallette said...

It was probably a really bad designer.

And yes if she has issues does not seem to have affected the quality of her work, she is great on Newsroom, for those who have't seen the show she plays Jeff Daniel's character ex-girlfriend who is now his producer on a cable TV news channel owned by Jane Fonda and run by Sam Waterston, LOL

loved her since the movie she did called Dear Frankie.

Ray Nicolet said...

Her husband is hot.

Violet said...

That's a whole heap of booze - how do you know it want a bottle of water? Surely even a seasoned alchy would be knocked out drinking that much in 20 minutes (disclaimer I know nothing, I fall asleep after eating a bowl of alcohol laced tiramisu).

Unknown said...

What was the very, very hit television show?

Tillie said...

I loved Dear Frankie!!! Saw it at a film festival before it was released! She was great in that movie!

Steampunk Jazz said...

When alcohol can be poured into a water bottle ( hey Lindsey) why would she be printing it ?

Becca Parker said...

I'm surprised she doesn't drink Pommeroy's Plonk or Chateau Thames Embankment.

Nancy said...

This makes me sad if this is really her. I like her on the Newsroom. They definitely improved the writing for her character between seasons 1 and 2. Newsroom is ending after this season though.

NaughtyNurse said...

I'm curious to know what she was drinking straight out of a pint bottle. I can't imagine drinking anything straight like that! I'd wind up puking on my shoes.

Tina Mallette said...

She is Scottish perhaps some fine GlenFiddich

MISCH said...

This makes me sad, she's fantastic.

Anna said...

She was good in "Transiberian." If this isn't an aberration in behavior - a rare, one-time thing - I hope she gets help for it between projects.

canadachick said...

dont' know who that is and too lazy to google

Mindless Contemplations said...

Um a pint isn't really that much. A beer at a bar is a pint. Unless it wasVidja in which case yikes.

Vodka stupid auto correct

NaughtyNurse said...

A pint of BEER isn't much, but a pint of straight liquor is a LOT.

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

What tv show are you talking about Enty? That she supposedly had her greatest fame on? Are you talking about those 3 episodes of 30 Rock she did back in 2007? I think you're full of crap. But her husband is a hottie, that is true!

LowKey said...

The only thing I took from this thread is that alcohol based tiramisu is a thing. I must find this thing.

Jcool said...

Well 30 Rock wouldn't be a very very hit TV show... I think whoever wrote this got confused while writing it.

WritergirlinLa said...

Saw her in Lars and the Real Girl at festival too. She was great in that as well.

Reese said...

That's too bad. I liked her in Match Point.

LogDog said...

I don't know how I would feel about her as my ND

Mango said...

She's a great actress. I sure hope it isn't her, but if it isn't some other poor soul needs help.

Unknown said...

do you think Enty thinks she was "Emily" on Friends? I think he does....

Countess Eden said...

Yes @ unknown...Enty got totally mixed up. There is no hit show on her imdb pg. hey Entern, Emily wasn't Emily on Friends!

Red said...

I don't believe this one. Either didn't happen or the "pint" wasn't straight booze. She's been pretty busy for someone who'd drink that excessively in public.

Mortimer's married, 2 kids, & has a mini-series releasing next week, 2 movies in post-production & finishing up another. Doesn't sound like a lush to me.

Who are we to judge how she copes with her Avian Bone Syndrome? Brittle bones!

texas rose said...

Enty blanked us all on this one. No one guessed her but it was a pretty obscure blind.

Northbynorthwest said...

It's understandable, she's got a pretty screwed up family. Hell her father & step-mother both wrote multiple well-known books devoted to how dysfunctional their relationships were. She also had one of those infamous secret siblings, a brother by her philandering dad, who she didn't know existed until 2004. That's some stuff.

Alita said...

A pint is just under half a litre. It's not *that* much!

Scallywag said...

The Ghost and The Darkness. Lovely & Amazing. Match Point. Bright Young Things. Lars and the Real Girl. Shutter Island. Transiberian.
Hugo.

Sure, three episodes of 30 Rock made her a name.

I saw Dear Frankie too and she was great. Hell, Gerard Butler was great, first thing I think I saw him in. The kid, too.
