Today's Blind Items - Not Quite Famous Enough

This actress used to be A list. It was a brief run at the top of the list, but her time there imprinted her on the world and she still continues to enjoy A+ list name recognition even though her first movie was about 30 years ago. It is hard to believe it has been that long since she made her entrance. It was that same time period that also saw one of her first co-stars get his start in movies. He is A+ list now. Our actress always had a thing for guys who were bad boys. She was known as someone who wouldn't mind if you wanted to rough her up a little bit and she was supposedly very willing to do whatever any guy wanted. Some say she was abused as a teen which led to this type of relationship. Sometimes the guys got completely out of hand and she suffered her fair share of beatings. One of those beatings kept her unemployed for three months and she lost a major role because of it. Her career never recovered after that miss. To say she has dated some of the more famous figures of all-time would be fair to say. One of those people was enamored with her and spent millions of dollars on her. Well, the movie version of her. Our actress did her best acting when she was with this guy. He flew her all over the world and she still has millions of dollars of jewels he gave her and is living off the money she received during and after the relationship even though it ended almost 20 years ago. The reason he left her was because he found someone even more famous than our actress. She really couldn't believe she was being dumped, at least for someone who was roughly her same age. She would show up at the guy's apartment and his homes around the world and one time was thrown in jail because the guards of his new A+ list celebrity girlfriend viewed her as a threat. She finally backed off after that visit and a nice healthy check from her boyfriend's dad. That is how he usually handled the affairs of his son.

Neddy said...

Kathleen Turner...

D Brown said...

I thought of Sharon Stone but I honestly couldn't think of any famous figures she dated. Yes, there were plenty of rumors of affairs with co-stars and directors but, in her personal life, she didn't seem to date high profile guys.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Dodi Fayed dated:
Daryl Hannah
Brooke Shields
Pfieffer
Ryder
Roberts
Diana

VIPblonde said...

@FSP You got here first! Well played!!

With the assist from @Montana,
Daryl Hannah, Tom Hanks, Dodi Fayed, Princess Di

Someone Said said...

Brooke Shields, Dodi Al-Fayed

Violet said...

'the more famous and beautiful the better—actresses Valerie Perrine, Brooke Shields, Joanne Whalley, Winona Ryder, Tanya Roberts, and Mimi Rogers' - quote from an article about Dodi.

sandybrook said...

Ellen Barkin

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Between Montana and FSP, y'all got it.

Fayed
Hannah
Brooke Shields as the actress he dumped her for
Diana as the A+

Who was the A list co star though? Tom Hanks? Ford?

MontanaMarriott said...

I recall reading that her ex bf Jackson Browne used to beat her up all the time

Tricia Shaw said...

Sandy was stuffing my face sorry!!
Yes she married Ron Perelman of revlon

sandybrook said...

Whoever was in Splash with her if it is Daryl Hannah

Sassy Snarkster said...

A+ co-star Tom Hanks in Splash.

sugarbread maker said...

daryl has aspergers

Froggy England said...

Out of that list I would say Brooke,,,,so Brooke and dodi.

Dena said...

And she dated JFK Jr. who was certainly world famous and rich.

WritergirlinLa said...

Hannah. The beating was from Jackson Browne.

Lioness70 said...

I first thought Sharon Stone, but it has to be Daryl Hannah. "Bad boys who rough her up a bit" referring to Jackson Browne.

Kat has left the building said...

Riven said...

@Sandy this is who I was thinking of too. I don't think she fits now that I reviewed her Wiki, but Ellen is one fierce lady and I heart her.

sandybrook said...

Daryl was with JFK Jr for years no? Right before he married the one who died with him?

WareCat said...

Dayum!
U go guys!
I was stumped on this.

Tricia Shaw said...

I'm not on board with that being all the players...it says...one of her lovers became so enameord he spent millions on her...well the film version of her....no one has made a film about Daryl Hanna's life...princess Di yes..but the blind isn't about her, clearly, this person still alive..
Sandy..let's keep at it..Ellen great ..she's a real...tomcat lol
But no film made about her either...

TalksTooMuch said...

Totally thought Sharon Stone, Roggy

Dingle Barry said...

This is just heart breaking. Poor girl.

msgirl said...

I didn't read the film version of her being there was a movie made about her, rather what kind of character she depicted in the movie. So Daryl was sweet, innocent, etc in Splash and she acted that way with him.

I had no idea Dodi dated so many famous people. Can we say playboy?

Violet said...

Tricia - I don't read it that there's been a film of the actress' life - just that the man was enamoured with the image she projected on film, you know, cute, ditzy, blonde mermaid type.

Violet said...

msgirl - snap

sandybrook said...

Entys math is off if its Daryl she started in 1978. She lasted about 15 years in movies.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Hannah costarred with Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas in Wall Street. Think they'd fit the Alister rather than Woody the Cowboy Hanks.

Stephie said...

@Violet, that's the way I read it too. Sad to say because I've always liked her but Hannah definitely fits.

Stephie said...

@Kristen, I think Hanks fits better since the blind says the A lister was just getting his start in movies. Douglas and Sheen had already made several movies before Wall Street.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Good point, Stephie. I just can't picture Gump as a bad boy. But wadda I know?

Basil said...

I think this is Hannah too.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Ok from all the excellent sleuths, timelines, beatings, costar, guards, rich daddy payoff...
Daryl Hannah (who's co star in Splash Tom Hanks put him on tbe map)
Thought
Dodi al Feydead
Loved her forever
Even tho she took a few pops from Jackson Browne, and then some,
He spoiled her until he found he could
Get Royal Punanny
Enter
Lady Di
...and Di's guards who can't have common folk actress pyschos making noise and have her properly excused
And to keep Daryl quiet forever
Takes big bucks
Enter Dodi's Deep Pockets Daddy to clean up his son's mess...again.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Sincerely, you gotta squeeze Shields or Pfieffer in for the one Hannah got dumped for. There was almost a 10-year difference between Daryl and Di.

Penelope said...

Great blind! You guys are awesome; I wouldn't have known where to begin.

VIPblonde said...

@Kristin It doesn't say that he beat her, or even dated her. I don't even know why he's mentioned, other than to reiterate that it's Daryl Hannah and Splash

Freya said...

She's pretty responsible with money. Most would have blown right through it.

Renoblondee said...

We named my daughter after her dad and gpa ' s middle name, Madison, but I was always secretly pleased she was named after Hannah' Madison. Lol

Topper Madison said...

Found this: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/DODI+DUMPED+DARYL+FOR+DI%3b+Star+at+Harrods%2c+then+out%3b+DODI%3b+HIS+LIFE...-a061075127

I never understood the appeal of Mr. Fayed. Money aside, he just looked really greasy to me. However, a friend of mine knew him and said Dodi just really, REALLY loved women. Yeah, charming and greasy. Ick.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

VIP nor did I say he beat her. The next sentence says she was always into bad boys. Wasn't sure if that was related to the aforementioned A lister or the followind descriptor.

Zach said...

I like the Daryl guess, but what's the role she lost?

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Was it Batman (1989)?

Froggy England said...

Did Sharon stone date dodi? I don't know why this screams sharom at me, but it does,,,,,

veee said...

not sure if she fits, but doesn't Sean Young say she lost a role due to a broken arm?

Frosty said...

I don't think it's Daryl -- the bf left her for someone even more famous, and *his* dad paid her to leave them alone.

Frosty said...

Seabee said...

Darryl Hannah - Splash came out 30 years ago.

Froggy England said...

As much as Darryl Hannah fits, she's autistic and was nearly institutionalised as a child due to it. The woman in this blind appears arrogant. Not reserved and shy like Darryl, that's why I struggle with it. Not being able to believe you are being dumped for someone the same age as you smacks me as someone who is well up their own backside, and I don't think Darryl Hannah is. I think the stories of her shyness and social anxiety are true and were probably what did for her career.

Sherry said...

Darryl Hannah
Ton Hanks the famous guy
Dodi and Diana

I have read this three times and I'm hard pressed to comprehend why everyone is guessing another actress here. Hep me out?

Ian's Girl said...

Darryl fits, but who in the hell would not understand why they were dumped for Diana? Or did he dump her for Brooke?

Jessica Larson said...

My first thought reading this was Tawny Kitaen, not sure she really fits though, or Sean Yong. This blind just may be too old for me.


Darly is Autisic, there was a reveal about her being kidnaped & beaten, etc. also. I don't think she fits.

Could see this being Sharon Stone though, she is never all together, and now is just crazy.

iknowpeople said...

Other famous men Daryl dated were JFK Jr and Jackson Browne (who beat her). Saw her at a NBA game with JFK Jr and they were both friendly, but shy at the same time. No star treatment requested or given.

janna said...

Winona Ryder, Johnny Depp, Godfather III as the role she lost, and she apparently dated Dodi.

Froggy England said...

Winonas too young, this is a woman the same age as Diana,,,early fifties, and the sort who would not be able to believe it that she was being dumped for another woman her age,,,even if that woman was princess Diana. Someone who really believes she is all that.

Hanwi said...

Why would Daryl Hannah's Asperger's syndrome keep her from being the actress in this blind? It would just make her prone to somewhat inappropriate social behavior, like stalking an ex without really understanding it's not ok. I think Daryl fits very well.

Froggy England said...

It's the social anxiety and what comes with autism v a woman who can't believe she is being dumped for princess di,,,Darryl Hannah is just a different animal,

Froggy England said...

I would also add that because she was beaten up by a man, does not in any way indicate she wanted it or asked for it,,or was up for it,

Hanwi said...

So are you saying that someone with social anxiety and Asperger's can't also be someone who refuses to accept the fact of getting dumped for a more famous woman? She could be as obsessively clingy as anyone.

Tricia Shaw said...

Wow I really thought this was Kim Basinger/the natural(released in '84) famous first costar from tv Bruce Willis (film blind date), violent exes/bad boys(Mickey Rourke, prince,Baldwin)...

Couldn't place wealthy dude...maybe he existed, but dodi seems right for that part and they aren't connected far as I can tell...

Certainly she's known for erratic behavior as well

Tricia Shaw said...

Darylhad two decent movies under her belt before splash..-summer lovers with petergallagher in which she was a lead ,which I loved, and reckless...
Oh well, guess insignificant. To the cineaste in enty lol

Tricia Shaw said...

@frioggy I'm with you...why I thought it was basinger, though shy, she was known for having a temper and being...tough..he'll she was married to Baldwin

Dallas Alice said...

The first name that popped into my head was Kim Basinger--other than that, I got nuthin'

Tricia Shaw said...

@dallas...right???

Tricia Shaw said...

I posted her immediately then deleted because I couldn't and still can't..connect dots with fayed, if in fact him

Tricia Shaw said...

Plus she was just popped at shows in Paris, she's back out in limelight,,,seems timely..then again, she private beyond belief, so maybe dodi was on her life, or a fayed type tycoon...just no one knew

Tricia Shaw said...

Zach said...

I was thinking Batman too, but I'm not sure I've ever heard of her being up for that role.

Countess Eden said...

This is tough. It has the story that seems to be Daryl Hannah, but timing wise..it's off. Dodi was engaged to an unknown model at the time of his death and she sued but she's no a lister. Daryl Hannah turned down Blue Lagoon and Pretty Woman which was before her supposed broken arm... Then she dated JFK Jr and was in bit parts.

Pip Squeak said...

@Countess - agreed. Just google Dodi Fayed Kelly Fisher.

Sorry, can't do clicky:
http://www.whosdatedwho.com/tpx_30840/dodi-fayed/datinghistory

Daryl is listed as having had an "encounter" w/Dodi at an unknown date, while Kelly is listed as having been "in a relationship" with him from 1995-1997.

One thing's for sure. Dodi was not exactly a one-woman man!

Trilby said...

I think you're thinking of Ellen Barkin who married the Lauder heir/billionaire? (Ronald, I think his name was?).

Trilby said...

Sorry, just read your comment naming her, farther down!

Tricia Shaw said...

Who is Kelly Fischer lol?! Ever heard of her so doubt she was a list or maintains alist name recognition.....
I still think it's basinger, I'll find the tie in somehow!!!(she stammers as staring deeply into her red wine)

lazyday603 said...

Sharon Stone is the Psy of film actresses. She's a one hit wonder. All Michael Douglas movies in the late 80's early 90's were monster hits. She took waaaayyyy too much credit for Basic Instinct's success.

Teresa said...

I think this is Sharon Stone. The reference to a now A+ actor who got his start in one of her movies would be Russell Crowe who starred in his first American film, The Quick and the Dead. Sharon Stone was the female lead and I think also the director and/or producer.

Teresa said...

Forget my guess of Sharon Stone. The Quick and the Dead came out in 1995, which is only about 19 years ago. The Blind says the now A+ actor got his start in movies at about the same time as she came onto the scene (30 years ago). So the timing doesn't work out.



































Pip said...

Froggy, social anxiety doesnt mean one is meek. It is also quite different from aspergers. Because she was once in a relationship with him, she probably felt comfortable showing certain emotions that she would otherwise hold back on.

jane3113 said...

I saw that Daryl was up for the role of MIa Wallace and then it went to Uma Thurman. Maybe that could coincide with her injuries?

versace buckles said...

Yeah, reread the Blind: Daryl Hannah got famous with Tom Hanks who is now A+ list. Some say she was assaulted as a teen which may have led to dating Jackson Browne and other physically violent relationships. Browne roughed her up around same time she turned down Pretty Woman. She dated JFK Jr, definitely a famous figure of all time. And Princess Di, very close in age to Daryl, is an A+ celebrity with the power to have Daryl jailed. Dodi was famous for gifting expensive jewels and I've heard stories of Daryl not having to work due to an inheritance of some kind. Look as you may, no other actress works flawlessly here.

hippy chk said...

I wonder what role she lost because she was recovering.

Froggy England said...

Yep, you guys were right, it was Darryl. There's some articles on line about how he dumped her three days before going on holiday with Diana, I was way off beam,,,

http://www.thefreelibrary.com/DODI+DUMPED+DARYL+FOR+DI%3B+Star+at+Harrods,+then+out%3B+DODI%3B+HIS+LIFE...-a061075127

sarah.estell said...

Plus, Darryl dated JFK Jr. (some of the more famous figures of all time). definitely.

Froggy England said...

Interestingly though, the article does say he also dated sharon stone, but it was Daryl he was most keen on, if he only dumped her though three days before he went on hols with Diana, I'm not sure how serious that relationship with Diana was in reality, I find the timing quite strange,

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Cybill Shepherd. Co-star, being of course, Bruce.

AB said...

Sounds like Daryl but Dodi only dated Diana for a few weeks before they died. So how could she stalk him around the world, get wrangled by body guards and paid off by the rich daddy all in such a short time span before their death? Intriguing.

MikeAdamson said...

I wonder if it might be Daryl Hannah...seems to fit the clues anyway.

Gloria Riesgo said...

Daryl Hannah is a good guess, but she comes from a VERY wealthy family and doesn't need anyone's money to "live off of"..

AKM said...

Okay, two things I take issue with.

First, like Gloria said right above me, Darryl comes from BIG money and doesn't need to live off of a check from anybody.

Second, this part: "She was known as someone who wouldn't mind if you wanted to rough her up a little bit and she was supposedly very willing to do whatever any guy wanted. Some say she was abused as a teen which led to this type of relationship." Liking it rough in a BDSD sense and being in an abusive relationship? Not at ALL the same thing. So which is it? She didn't mind it (meaning she liked being dominated) or she was beaten up (which of course is abusive)? Anyone else in the lifestyle agree with me here?

So I call BS on this whole thing, Darryl or someone else.

Froggy England said...

I'm not in the "lifestyle" but if you are having a sexual relationship with someone where seriously beating you or inflicting pain on you is part of it, is it really unheard of that one party takes it too far at some point and does some damage? Does that never ever happen? I think it must, I'm sorry, not everyone is a good guy that plays by the rules, so I don't see how this is bs based on the fact enty is saying a couple of guys let it get out of hand.

Froggy England said...

And also because it's bdsm relationship,,,surely that does not automatically mean it can't also be abusive or turn abusive?

AKM said...

@Froggy - I called B.S. based on that AND the fact that Darryl has her own money and tons of it. So, B.S. on Darryl as a guess totally and B.S. on the rest...for halvsies, I guess.

As far as BDSM goes, I don't have actual studies in front of me, but I would lay a hefty bet on couples in the lifestyle having decreased rates of abuse, yes. Part of my belief lies in the concept of power and control being the root cause of abuse in relationships -- and I know that for a fact, because I used to work with DV/IPV clients, and I still try to stay up on current theories and new practices -- and the power/control dynamic is radically different in BDSM. In fact, partners as equals -- which I know sounds odd, given subs and dommes and such -- is pretty much absolute. Also, the pleasure/pain part of BDSM...well, it's really not at all similar to the pain of abuse.

Does that make sense? I haven't had enough coffee yet.

(I've not been involved in that life for many years, so I would love to hear from someone still involved to see if my hunches are correct, if just at least anecdotally.)

Basil said...

@Tricia I just LOVED Summer Lovers. Full frontal peen! She was also in a successful TV movie with Joan Collins called Paper Dolls, and wasn't Blade Runner before Splash? Either way, she had a pretty good career going before Splash.
