Today's Blind Items - She Used To Be Lindsay Lohan

Before there was Lindsay Lohan, there was another movie actress who did many of the same things Lindsay has done. Our actress once reached A list, which is something Lindsay probably won't ever do at this point. Our actress had a very quick and bright flame and then crashed and burned because she has no real acting talent. She still enjoys A+ list name recognition, but her acting resume is probably a C+ at this point. Our actress didn't start off quite as young as Lindsay, but made a name for herself beginning in her 20's. Our actress spent a lot of time on the casting couch. Lots. It was the only way she got any roles at all because she is that bad. She lucked into her biggest role and has tried not to have sex for parts any longer. She will have sex for other reasons though or things she wants. She loves things. Like Lindsay, our actress would steal anything not tied down. She was famous for never returning any item of jewelry or clothing that she wore during a photo shoot or on a movie set. It got so bad that when she walked in a huge event she had to buy everything herself because no one would give her anything.. It is still considered to be one of the bigger fashion fails of all time. Like Lindsay, our actress enjoys some drugs. She had to have a nose reconstruction because of all the coke she snorted. She tries to limit herself to pills and booze and pot now. She has a lot of health problems for a woman of her still fairly young age because of her past drug abuse.

no idea but i'll estimate this person is between 30 and 40.

Cleodacat said...

Pia Zadora

sandybrook said...

Tara Reid

MontanaMarriott said...

Doesn't mention marriages so there goes my Pia Z guess.

julie has opinions said...

Lara Flynn Boyle (pink tutu) and horrible facial surgery

Virginia Squatch said...

Wino Forever?

Shotinthedark said...

Second the Winona guess

Cake said...

Shannon D

Seven of Eleven said...

Rose McGowan (though to be fair, she can act).

Kno Won Uno said...

Sure does fit Pia, otherwise, though. She was everywhere for no reason. Every talk show, for weeks on end. Pia, Pia, Pia! Obviously had zero talent. She giggled a lot and played up her petite stature, IIRC. Cutesy & vacuous.

Cake said...

I think Wino can act

jamie said...

"It is still considered to be one of the bigger fashion fails of all time." makes me think this is Tara Reid (the nipple disaster).

Renoblondee said...

Winona was not a flash in the pan. She had lots of good roles.

Violet said...

I don't know - Demi?

trudi said...

Tara Reid and the fashion horror be
ing the nip slip at Sean Combs 35th Birthday party.

BTownGirl said...

@Jamie - that's what I was thinking too! You really can't get deeper into failure than having your nipple out at a P. Diddy party. There's also the escort connection going on too!

jane3113 said...

I thought this too but isn't she already known to be this way? This would shock no one.

veee said...

too lazy to google, but wasn't Pia Zadora everywhere because she had some influential husband? otherwise I don't think its Winona - can't think of any fashion disaster for her...

SkittleKitty said...

Shannon Elizabeth?

I initially thought maybe Alicia Silverstone, but I don't think it's her.

Wen said...

My first thought was Winona. Sad

jane3113 said...

Good guess!

Melissa said...

I don't think it's Winona. I don't believe she slept with Timothy Burton for all those roles.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Mischa or Yessica?

Unknown said...

I'm not sure Tara was EVER A list....

nothistime said...

Sean Young? She was huge at one point. Didn't I hear she wears fur coats with nothing under to events? She is a mess.

Zelda Zonk said...

Pia is a good guess but that was all her husband. Winona I thought too but she def had multiple good roles. Maybe Jessica Alba?

Runswithscissors said...

Oooh! What's her name?! What about that chick from one of those "reality" shows, she dated the guy with the hanging balls, ooh, that show was before Blake Lively's and Ceiling Eyes.
That chick was everywhere, magazines kept pushing her down our throat as the next modeling muse, and then she crashed and burned, keeps having weight problems and now is opening clothing stores. Big around the thighs. Whatshername?
Someone knows who I'm talking about?

CoBe said...

Definitely Lara Flynn Boyle.

Fashion disaster: Pink tutu

Kno Won Uno said...

@veee Pia Zadora was married to some rich guy and at the time, it was assumed he'd bought her roles and her Golden Globe.
Here's a wiki quote: Zadora married businessman Meshulam Riklis in 1977, when she was 23 and he 54. Zadora and Riklis bought the Beverly Hills mansion Pickfair Manor in January 1988 from Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss for almost $7 million.

Runswithscissors said...

@lady Heisenberg, yes! That's the one I'm thinking of: Mischa Barton!

Topper Madison said...

Not Pia. She was famous because she was married to a gazillionaire and he bought her roles and press. Then they tore down PickFair and bought their first-class ticket to hell.

hairydawg said...

Cosign Lara Flynn Boyle.

jane3113 said...

Right? I'm thinking some posters must be very young. Winona was super famous for a while!

Kno Won Uno said...

I know the horse is dead and I'm dropping the stick, but here's a pic of Pia Zadora at Cannes in 1982. Slightly NSFW http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSrWpXR-xVZ87w18-rcmnzEagrrQiP31jk8eU5czHaUH8bS8Qr6xQ
Sorry no linky

Sophie Helene said...

I was thinking Tara. Lara FB did not get roles through the casting couch, I think. She was pretty good in Twin Peaks and was definitely not a flash in the pan.

CoBe said...

Scratch Lara Flynn Boyle. Not primarily movies. Same with Mischa. Has to be Tara Reid, but what a crappy "blind" in that case.

D Brown said...

Mischa is an interesting guess but her "fame" came from TV not movies and was achieved as a teenager (17-20 on The OC) not in her 20s as per the blind.

T. E. Cuz said...

anytime someone says the name pia, i think of some girl from the american idol shows or something....

Krab said...

Pia Zadora doesn't still have A+ name recognition. I think it's Lara Flynn Boyle.

D Brown said...

Winona is another interesting guess but again her defining roles (Beetlejuice, Heathers, Scissorhands etc.) came as a teenager not while in her 20s.

Harry Knuckles said...

"It is still considered to be one of the bigger fashion fails of all time." ... Not sure what the Enty is saying here but Tara had the mother of all nipple slips, so I guess this might be her.

Snapdragon said...

Was Lara Flynn Boyle really A list, though? And didn't she refuse to participate in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me because of the nudity, so Donna got recast?

I think she's a hot mess, but I'm not convinced this is LFB. Feel like this should be super easy.

derek harvey said...

Definitely NOT Winona. She has worked with almost every great director and has won many awards. What about Ally Sheedy?

Sarah said...

She was famous before her 20s

derek harvey said...

I change my guess to Jennifer Grey.

Renoblondee said...

Jennifer Grey isn't a hot mess. She's a devoted mother and wife. She's very very healthy.

D Brown said...

The blind doesn't mention the "actress" doing anything other than acting. However, if you are willing to overlook that aspect, I think Courtney Love might fit. Started acting in early 20s (i.e. Sid and Nancy). Accused of stealing things and not unfamiliar with booze/drugs. Health problems. However she also had career in music and blind doesn't imply that.

Vera L- said...

Sean Young or Lorraine Bracco.

Sherry said...

Ally Sheedy is a very good actress and I believe doing something on B'way.

Honestly I'm thinking it's someone older than who we're guessing. Tara never A+, Wino can act and loves her Vicodins not a snorter. She is a thief though.

Wish this would be revealed. Just don't think we're getting it yet.

Simon said...

I am on the Lara Flynn Boyle train. Known boozer and coke seems reasonable as skinny as she was. She is all weirdly bloated now and clearly has health issues.

derek harvey said...

FINE.
lol I am not sold about Laura even though many of the clues do add up. Did she have her nose done cause I thought that was the only original thing left on her face? and definitely don't think Mischa cause every blind cant be about her. I will think about it some more...

Evil Kumquat said...

I was thinking Jessica Alba as well.

And yeah, she didn't have much talent, but Pia Zadora is one of my oldest celebrity crushes.

Must be her height and those dimples.

Countess Eden said...

Lara FB was on punked one time before the surgery thinking she was getting $50,000 of free clothes then was asked to pay and freeaaaked out. I'm on the Lara train.

nurysp said...

i like winona
thats my guess

D Brown said...

On my Courtney Love suggestion I forgot to add her nose surgery as a consideration.

CoBe said...

We have to be missing someone. The only one who fits is Tara, the rest are either TV (LFB, Mischa), good actresses (Winona), not a flash in the pan (Demi), or Pia Zadora, who was never A.

Whatever happened to Tia from Wayne's World? Remember her?

Nutty_Flavor said...

Just googled 'actresses who steal' and got Lohan, Winona, Farrah Fawcett - she claimed the incident was a misunderstanding - and Peaches Geldof.

CoBe said...

Estella Warren?

derek harvey said...

@CoBe---was gonna guess her but she was never near A list. She is nuts though.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Doherty. First B that popped in my mind.

Frosty said...

Joey Heatherton

SueRH said...

Pamela Anderson

CoBe said...

Doesn't A mean she can open a movie? Planet of the Apes? And she got nailed for stealing the purse of Jaime Pressley's assistant as well as a DUI and hit and run.

derek harvey said...

What about Sharon Stone? Some question her acting ability. and did she not wear a GAP t-shirt to the Oscars or something? Definetly A+ name recognition. I am too invested in this blind. That will be my final answer...

amanda_jf said...

Jaime pressly

ButterKwup said...

I think this is someone older, but when I looked up 'worst celebrity fashion' the two I saw that hadn't already been guessed that would still maybe fit were Kate Hudson and Kim Basinger.

I want to know who this is though!

derek harvey said...

French police have named actress Sharon Stone as their prime suspect in the daring heist, in which more than $1.4 million in jewels were stolen from a hotel room during the Cannes Film Festival. According to authorities, they zeroed in on the “Basic Instinct” star as their prime suspect after an IMDb search helped them realize the actress hasn’t been a movie star in almost a decade, which made her attendance at the Cannes Film Festival extremely suspicious, they noted.
“Sharon Stone’s last starring role in a major theatrical release was in 2006’s ‘Basic Instinct 2,’ which should have gone to straight-to-DVD anyway,” a spokesperson for the Nice police told Hollywood & Swine. “So what possible business does Sharon Stone have attending the 2013 Cannes Film Festival other than to steal expensive jewels? No one including Ms. Stone has been able to give us a good answer.”



Angela said...

I doubt the Coens rely on casting couch for The Big Lebowski. There are reports they were blushing when they had to shoot the scene involving Asia Argento for the fake film "Logjammin'". And Tara Reid's greatest pride for this film is that she got the part of Bunny Lebowski over Charlize Theron. If she had to bed one of the producers while Theron refused, her "win" would have no weight.

Winona Ryder got parts as a minor. She didn't start as early as Natalie Portman, but she got noticed for her looks and her acting skills as a teenager.

Pia Zadora did something like three movies, bankrolled by her husband. And she bombed spectacularly.


So, the blind item is an actress who got bigger and bigger parts in her 20s, got a big break, then was unable to carry on because she didn't sleep with producers or directors anymore, and had a reputation for keeping everything that went through her hands. So, for one huge event, she had to us clothes she had in her locker without having any designer taking care of the outfit, and she failed spectacularly. Then, she had facial reconstruction because of her coke habit. But the drugs and the stealing stories may have remained hidden from common knowledge.

So, I'm thinking about people like Shannon Elizabeth. Big break = American Pie, was for a while a lead in several films released by majors (Tomcats, Thirteen Ghosts) which would qualify her as "A list", then had her career bomb spectacularly.

yesandno said...

Not Winona she was a preteen actress READ THE BLIND

hothotheat said...

Jennifer Jason Leigh

hothotheat said...

Became famous with Fast Times At Ridgemont High when she was 20.

derek harvey said...

It is most definitely Sharon Stone. She had a nose job as well. Jennifer Jason Leigh is one of the best actresses in Hollywood btw.

MadLyb said...

I really like the Sean Young guess, but don't think it's her. The fashion fail would've been the handmade Catwoman costume.

This is probably Sharon Stone. My uncle used to date her sister.

CoBe said...

What about that skinny one that used to date Brad Pitt? You know, unattractive and had that awful awful outfit.

Angela said...

Stone is okay as an actress, and started out as a model before doing film. Her first part was at the beginning of Woody Allen's Stardust Memories. Her biggest issue is that she's a huge diva.

Another guess: Kate Bosworth.

surfer said...

Derek - Sharon Stone is usually in Cannes because she hosts the AMFAR gala (took over duties from Elizabeth Taylor).

This blind makes me laugh - it's about an actress not named Lindsay, yet manages to throw Lindsay's name out SEVEN times (including the header).

CoBe said...

Juliette Lewis ever steal anything? Bosworth seems like a good guess too. I used to think she was the most gorgeous actress I'd ever seen. Then she became skeletal.

derek harvey said...

@Surfer---I just copied and pasted that- when I googled "Sharon Stone thief". That is true though but still think it is her. She is really not that great. Dreadful in Basic Instinct 1 and 2

Any excuse for enty to talk and type Lohan...

Sus said...

Megan Fox
Bo Derek
Mena Suvari

Riven said...

Heather Graham is my guess.
I know she's been in a lot of films but, if I'm remembering accurately, Boogie Nights was her one huge Hollywood hit and everything else sucks. But I hope I'm wrong cause I kind of like her.

Moxie Taylor said...

Bai Ling???

MoJo said...

Drew Barrymore?

MollyMo said...

My vote too. I thought of her immediately.

JoElla said...

If it wasn't for the all movies, I would say Yasmine Bleeth.

rosie riveter said...

"I'll suck your cock for a thousand dollars.... Brandt cant watch, though, or he has to pay a hundred"
thats some good Tara Reid shit right there

Boishglamorpuss said...

Misha Barton? She was on the OC back in the day. I'm going off the "hanging balls".....Cisco Adler was her bf and has the grossest balls ever photographed.

StayGoldPonyboy said...

Sharon stone fits except for one thing: She was 34 years old, not in her 20s, when Basic Instinct came out

Eros said...

I would say winona ryder but she doesn't fit because she's a good actress.

So my guess is ashley judd

Jana said...

This sounds like Sharon Stone. She was sued by Harry Winston for refusing to return some diamond earrings that were loaned to her for an appearance; her defense was that she believed they were a gift. I remember she's also had a stroke. There's also always been a lot of talk about her willingness early in her career to do anything for roles.

mmhmm said...

Rose McGowan?

Rhody said...

I knew when I was reading this everyone would guess Winona. But she was considered good in her day (and still is). She was definitely an A. I read this as Alley Sheedy. She was really popular but the girl can't act.
No way this is Pia Zadora. The only thing she was famous for was back in the day the Golden Globes had a Best New Actress award (or something like that) and she won for a role no one had heard of. Rumor was her rich old husband paid off the HFP for it. She was never heard from again.

Shelly Shell said...

Sharon Stone. She's well known for walking off set with all the clothes & jewelry, she has been sued for not returning the jewelry that was loaned to her. She just left the set of some piece of crap low budget because she was difficult, some say she was drinking. Then got papped getting her nails done back in LA.

hackgnar said...

HEY DIPSHITS...it says she's at a fairly young age still and has health problems...probably Tara Reid. She's under 40. Stone and boyle are both over 40..

skippy said...

I lived in San Francisco near the Castro. Halloween was always a big deal.
Anyway after Winona got caught there was a man who won best costume. He was carrying a Saks bag full off cut off labels! Fabulous.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Kate Bosworth

A list during Blue Crush, biggest role was either that or the Superman movie (blind says nothing abuot the movie being a hit, but Superman got lots of coverage). Terrible actress, looks VERY unhealthy.

Not a clue about a fashion disaster, besides the pic of her bending over at an event and her chestbone/ribs were visible, because of how severly underweight she was, with her boobs being two floppy sacks, which gave everyone nightmares.

Shit You Can't Buy said...


Kate's boney front

anon said...

Sharon stone was in my head the entire time I was reading this - she def seems like she'd fuck for parts. Also seems to have a well developed sense of entitlement that would have her walk off set w/clothes and jewelry. Isn't she also well known for hoovering up coke?

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Sean Young also is a good guess. Got famous at 21. Fashion faux-pas was dressing up as Catwoman on a talkshow, because she wanted to get that role in a movie.
Sean as Catwomant

Rose McGowan's disaster would be the dress made about of strings/beads, which exposed her entire body, except her vagina. I don't think she was ever A list though, not even during Charmed.
Rose mostly nude

Alita said...

Derek

That "news" article is just ... breathtaking (or literally unbelievable ...). I seriously Googled it to see if it was from The Onion - it really looks like it. I particularly like that the Cannes police zeroed in on her after doing an IMDB search.

Journalism, a song art!

Alita said...

Journalism, a dying art, I meant :)

derek harvey said...

@hackgnar---Sharon is middle age and enty considers that not THAT old. and whats with the name calling?
@Staygold---she did have her film debut in her 20s in a famous Woody Allen scene though

derek harvey said...

Alita---haha I agree but just found something quick as evidence to support my guess...

Sean said...

Sharon Stone is 56. That is past middle age. People don't live to 112.

derek harvey said...

Definition of middle age (n)

Bing Dictionary
mid·dle age
1.period between youth and later life: the period in somebody's life when that person is no longer considered young, usually between 40 and 60

Jo-Ann Darroch said...

Heather Graham?

Malibu Borebee said...

Sharon Stone. I couldn't believe she wasn't named right off the bat.

Flora Goforth said...

FWIW Pia Zadora got her start in this:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058548/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_12

when she was 10.

Alita said...

I'm just glad it can't be my Wino (forever)!

hackgnar said...

Can't be boyle cuz of the practice tv show. in no world is 56 "still fairly young"

Jeff Macauley said...

Sharon Stone sounds about right. She started as "Pretty Girl on train" in Stardust Memories in 1980 when she was 22 and has worked every year (except for 1997) since. Everyone knows who she is even 22 years after Basic Instinct and that's all she is known for and all anyone remembers her for is crossing her legs. "a woman of her still fairly young age" could be anywhere from 40-60. Plus she could easily have traded sex for parts because she's that beautiful.

NaughtyNurse said...

Sharon Stone, with her two-count em TWO-strokes so far.

PghGirl said...

+1 on the Sean Young guess

Fleuhr Flower said...

Wouldn't Tara's thing be called a wardrobe malfunction though, and not an FF (fashion fail)? Just my opinion. I don't think it's her. I also don't see Stone's gap shirt with a skirt as a fashion fail....she was pretty much roundly praised for her balls for wearing that. She got sooooooo much press, and that was before the internet. Big fashions fails I can recall from actresses that *might* fit here are the one-sleeved white ballgown from Kim Basinger and the tutu from Boyle. Others have had major FFs (like Goop) but don't really fit the other clues. I guess Basinger doesn't either. I want Graham to fit but can't recall a famous FF.

Jennmcn said...

I consign with Derek on Sharon Stone. She really can't act and has all sorts of health issues with strokes etc. She's the first one that jumped in my head.

JenSacks said...

This is so obviously Tara Reid that it makes me think that maybe it isn't Tara Reid. We know she fucks for money, so...

Lux said...

And 56 is fairly young to have had 2 strokes. I'm on board with the Sharon Stone guess.

Fleuhr Flower said...

Doesn't anyone else think Sharon Stone was amazing in Casino? She made that movie for me.

Brenda L said...

I want it to be Mackenzie Phillips but the clues ain't fittin.....

Sherry said...

See now I can see Sharon as the guess here but I think she's a good actress. Who can say. Will this be revealed.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Juliette Lewis - she def had a fashion fail with the corn rows but I don't see that the blind mentions fashion fail like the commenters are mentioning that. Anyway, I've seen her acting in quite a bit. Most recently that Osage County dumb movie. But she's always pretty good.

sugarbread maker said...

Shannon is kind of a vegas grifter. Watch out 4 that one.

sugarbread maker said...

My guess is bosworth virus though. She keeps trying to make herself happen as designer and has failed many times.
Top shop. Jewel mint was supposed to be huge and her involvement flopped and she disappeared from their website in a hurry. She has ridden many a casting couch.

Tru Leigh said...

Pia Zadora was never, ever, even close to being A+, except in her own mind.

Henriette said...

I like the Sharon Stone guess with showing her no no in Basic Instinct.

I also do not think Wanna Ride Her is a good actress. She sucked in quite a few roles.

Bubbles said...

it isn't Pia Zadora unless 60 is the new thirty.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Wow is everyone new here? He's straight up referred to Emma Stone as being the Teflon Lindsey (not with that exact label, but essentially that is what he has said in the past).

CoBe said...

Has Emma Stone stolen anything? Had a fashion fail? Health problems?

kitten1979 said...

Please tell me this jessica no talent biel

Lissa said...

Juliette Lewis

Froggy England said...

Sounds like Lara Flynn Boyle. She is not looking like a well woman for her age.( 44) she looks way older and struggles with health issues. Twin peaks catapulted her to a list, she was known globally and her name is still globally recognised, but her acting portfolio is pretty much c after. Her ballerina outfit was famous for it's fail with a capital F. She has done a lot of movies and had her part deleted,,,dead poet, ferris bueller and she was early twenties when twin peaks made her famous. Lindsay should take her as a big old health warning.

Newfie Chick said...

Marisa Tomei?
