Blind Item #4

This foreign born former A+ list mostly movie actor from some of the greatest movies ever has kind of disappeared over the past few years. He was previously married for only a few months because he caught his actress wife cheating on him. Our actor had the actress banned from acting for almost a decade after the incident. Actually banned. Not blacklisted.

Sean Connery / Roger Moore?

Violet said...

Land how can you actually ban someone from acting. Is there a law or something?
Btw my above guesses are poor.

Kno Won Uno said...

Greatest movies ever? (gawd, I'm an insufferable bitch today!)

I'm drawing blanks.

Jim Carey/Lauren Holly?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Was Colin Farrell ever married?

D Brown said...

Violet - I tried to make work for Sean and Diane Cilento but they were married for more than a decade. So I'm back thinking.

IDK but googling to see if it was Ray Fiennes (which is not) and read that he dated PATTI SMITH!?

Kno Won Uno said...

I wish this was Lawrence Olivier & Vivian Leigh, but it's not.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Nice, Heisenberg! Mary Samsonite it is, for me.

Bunni said...

This^. Good one Lady H.

Kno Won Uno said...

Jim Carey has been in the greatest movies ever? Just askin'
I live on a planet all alone and don't understand earth people.

It isn't Clint Eastwood, but he pretty much destroyed Sandra Locke's career when they split up.

derek harvey said...

Hate to burst your bubble Lady H but Lauren has worked pretty steadily---although I am sure he fucked her career over somehow---
Decent guess though!

derek harvey said...

that being said NO CLUE. Some crotchety old man I imagine....

sandybrook said...

Ty@kno won Jim Carrey uh uh....

rajahcat said...

how exactly does one have someone banned......????

Rosemary Young said...

Could this be someone from an authoritarian country where a person actually could be banned from acting b/c the state controls all the media? e.g. China, Iran or Saudi Arabia. I can't think of an international superstar from a place like that, however.

Kno Won Uno said...

Second wish - Liam Neeson, because I wish him for everything.

Kno Won Uno said...

Your Majesty! You look great!

Sadie said...

This would have to be somebody very powerful to pull this off.. and I can't think of any foreign-born A+ listers (presumably a Brit) with that kind of clout.

sugarbread maker said...

Oooh she got so much backlash for that divorce. And he Was Hollywood back then.

hothotheat said...

@Kristin Yes, he was. For a few months to an actress, Amelia something. This could be him.

auntliddy said...

You dont gave to be powerful, you have to know where the bodies are buried. Or where the threesomes went down. Or know how one did some creative bookeeping. So many ways to trap a rat.

Vera Christina said...

Sandra Locke -not pretty or talented the only reason she had a career was Eastwood.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Exactly! Why do you think people are actually bothering to defend Bieber? Cough cough Usher cough cough

Lady Heisenberg said...

No hard feelings Derek. I agree it's a stretch, but so are a lot of Enty's titles. Anyways, Carrey/Holly is the best fit I can think of. She got some shit gigs but nothing big for a while after they split. Plus, Holly was rumored to have been cheating, and some allegations were that she was also having an affair with a woman....

Lauren Holly married a rich guy, moved to his house in Lake Forest Ill. & then to Canada & became a Canadian citizen.
IMDb shows her as working at least once a year all the way back.

Holly Westwood said...

I heard a story once that the reson Carrey and Holly divorced was because she caught him in bed with the guy from princess bride.

JMS said...

Russell Crowe?

PugsterMom said...

They were never married. And she was a terrible actress.

Zach said...

I thought Sean Connery would work out. Sondra Locke was really good in her Oscar-nominated debut in The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter! Waifish and not the kind of talent to sustain a decades-long career, but who knows? I've never seen her in anything else though.

PotPourri said...

Sondra Locke was AWFUL, and no one would ever cast her EXCEPT for Clint Eastwood. She'd just nosedive on her own.

I like someone very powerful, legendary, but I don't know that the really powerful guys, like Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Eastwood were ever married for a few months, then not.

Jeremy Irons was married for less than a year to an actress in 1969, though I wouldn't say he's disappeared in the last few years since doing TV.

Sophie Helene said...

Jim Carey was born in Canada...

anon said...

If I remember correctly, Sondra Locke and Eastwood were never married - didn't she sue him for palimony and lose?

That being said, I can't remember anyone from some of the "greatest movies ever" who was only married for a few months. Young enough where he could still be acting but isn't - old enough to have someone banned for 10 years (and powerful enough at the time of the banning to have the juice to do that).

@Kristin (Wiglet) Farrell was married to Jamie Dornan's wife. She a singer.

hothotheat said...

@(R)ed Amelia Warner was married to Farrell briefly but she was an actress at the time. She was horrible in Quills.

Sylvester Stallone and Brigitte Nielsen?

Aoife said...

Wow. No idea.

Daniel Day Lewis?
