Blind Item #8

This A list mostly movie and television actress is also an Academy Award winner/nominee. No one has directly asked her about her sexuality. They might now because of her very very young new girlfriend who looks like she is about 16, but is actually a doctor in her late 20's which is still well below half the age of our actress.

Kathy Bates

Wasn't there a blind recently about someone/her coming out soon.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I'm with texas rose on this one.

sandybrook said...

There was a blind saying that Texas.

Mark B said...

I always thought Bates was out anyway.

TalksTooMuch said...

I love Kathy Bates! Gay or straight. I have a friend that looks just like her and gets a lot of that "is she or isn't she" bs. Peeps are weird

Violet said...

It wouldn't be much of a shock would it? Even less of a jaw dropper given that the girlfriend is well above legal age. What's it even matter if she looks young when she isn't? Doubt Kathy's career would be shaken in the least.

texas rose said...

Seems like when enty does get a good bit of gossip they parlay it into a few related blinds.

Bacon Ranch said...

Is this an Entern outing?

Call Kevin!

VintagePrincess said...

"mostly movie and television" huh? mostly both of those things?

texas rose said...

She is not playing a lot of heterosexual love interest roles - ("About Schmidt' excepted.)

WritergirlinLa said...

It's 2014. It's apparent they have a big career anyway. Why is this a blind?!

sandybrook said...

Just to throw out one more name--Helen Hunt.
Kathy Bates wouldn't be cast in love interest roles at her age anyway plus she looks it too.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Hey Vintage!

laura ramona said...

20 x 3 + 5 , kathy's age. bit too old for a 20 yo.

Renoblondee said...

Good for her!

sjgmoney said...

What really would be a jaw dropper is if this doctor wasn't as fugly as Bates.

VintagePrincess said...

hey steampunk!!

sugarbread maker said...

As in mostly working actor.

VintagePrincess said...

Sandy: Helen Hunt is a good guess but according to wikipedia she's only 50. "in her late 20's which is still well below half the age of our actress." <--- I guess we're looking for someone in their 60s?

Seven of Eleven said...

Meh, I'm neither 16 nor a doctor, and I get carded all the damn time. If they're happy and they know it, let's clap our hands for the side eye not thrown at Anthony Kiedis (51) dating a 20 year old model or James Woods (66) dating a 20 year old model.

sandybrook said...

Probs but Enty's math acumen isn't always the best.

bored soccer mom said...

Hilary swank.

auntliddy said...

Love kathy bates. She always good in any role.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Towanda!!!!

M. Brown said...

If I'm Kathy Bates and I have the career I have and have worked for it as long as I've had I don't give a crap what anyone thinks. Is she going to lose roles? Hell no. She could do AHS for the rest of her life and be financially and professionally fulfilled. There will always be room for Kathy b/c she isn't one of a dozen actresses that look and sound alike. If this is her I hope she's happy.

Who the hell cares what someone does between the sheets as long as the players are consenting adults and no one is being harmed? Maybe in 1980 when gays were first coming out this might have been a revelation. Now? They are actors & actresses, if they have true acting skills they can transcend their on camera appeal. NPH does this very well. And no one talks crap about Ellen either. Give average every day Americans some credit, Hollywood.

Seven of Eleven said...

@Dingle, you'd be surprised. I saw a headline the other day that said "Ellen Degenerate strikes again" and linked to a clip of her talking about something that had nothing to do with the topic. Sadly, there are still quite a few judgemental folk who insist that same sex marriage will someday lead to people marrying their dogs or their siblings. They don't seem to have much of a problem with KimK's 72 day marriage, though, because it was officiated and the bride wore white.

sarah.estell said...

I thought Kathy Bates was already out. So....I guess if she comes out or is outed, it really won't be much of a deal.

Kathleen Turner, though a lot of theatre not much TV.
But she's my guess

Dingle Barry said...

@7-11, you've got to be kidding with that headline! That's media playing to the unknown and uneducated. That's shameful. KimK is shameful, but she is too dumb and greedy to know what shame is about --"Aboot" for the Canadians ;)

di butler said...

I don't believe Bates is out, and I think those naive types that always get shocked by the obvious, (Ricky Martin is gay? OMG, can't believe it!!!) will be shocked if she does. I think this is a good guess for the blind, and think she should stroll on out, taking Queen Latifah's hand on the way out the door.

Betty K said...

If this is Kathy Bates, sounds a lot like her character in Primary Colors. Such a great movie.

Chief2224 said...

Well said, Seven! Actually, well said twice, to your last two comments ;-)

Seven of Eleven said...

@Dingle, I wish it was a joke and/or a media play, but it was posted by someone who also says "Tea Party" stands for something like Taxes Enough Already, and one of the people interviewed in a clip they posted said, "I don't know what that [taxation without representation] means, we're just here to stand for Americans."

If you don't know what taxation without representation means and yet feel free to decry the constitutionality of marriage ... ya might thank the powers that you're granted a legal right to vote that's not based on intelligence.

Dingle Barry said...

7-11, gotcha. I should have clarified that "in a perfect world" scenario, someone's (specially actors, singers) sexuality should not play a part in their craft. New age media and people like us feed into the perception that it's anyone's business.

Stupid transcends all boundaries.

Sprink said...

Dammit, Steampunk, I'll have you know I've spent the past 15 minutes reading the imdb quotes from Dead Poets' Society to see if Charlie christened himself Towanda!

(He didn't. It was Nuwanda.)

Sprink said...

My lezdar must have been switched off when Kary Bates strolled by. Not. A. Clue. (If it's she and if it's true.)

Then again, I would never have thought it of Ricky Martin either. Don't know if I'm not switched on, naive, or genuinely uninterested. I think the latter.

feraltart said...

Sprink, Towanda is from Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. Awesome film.

Sprink said...

I saw it, feral. Don't remember the Towanda. Do remember it was a very Mary love story...

Countess Eden said...

Kathy Bates is a good guess, so is Latifa

Malibu Borebee said...

Since when do Anthony Kiedis and James Woods not get "side eye" for dating 20 year olds? It happens all the time. If Kathy Bates or any other woman in her 50s/60s dates a 20 year old, she'll get the same.

There is something inherently skeevy about 30 and 40 year age gaps. It transcends gender.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Enty: This blind about someone coming out soon needs some spice. I know, I'll imply pedo-tastes, or at least a good May December thing, and BAM! Instant dirt!

George All well said...

Seriously? This is interesting? Oh my god. Boys like boys. Girls like girls.

Suzzique said...

this is a stumper...I'm going with Oprah

Sean said...

If it is Bates, I don't know why she wouldn't come out. It wouldn't change her career one bit. It wouldn't have changed anything the last 20 years or so.

7 of 11: "If you don't know what taxation without representation means and yet feel free to decry the constitutionality of marriage"

I don't know anyone who says state recognition of same sex marriage is unconstitutional, just that there's no such thing as a right to demand such, furthermore it's a matter to be decided democratically and not imposed by judicial fiat, which is unconstitutional.

"Helen Hunt": I don't know why anyone would think this. She's been in a live-in relationship for years with the father of their child, and had a relationship with Hank Azaria for years before that. Kathy Bates is far and away the best guess for this and the earlier blind.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Fiat; 1. A brand of automobile. The name stands for "Fix It Again, Tony."
2. The decision by a judge with which the speaker doesn't agree.

di butler said...

Awwww. :) That's kinda cute.
