Blind Items Revealed - Kindness

January 15, 2014

This British actor that everyone loves. No, not that one. A little older. Yeah, Academy Award nominee/winner. Good looking guy. Dropped almost $1000 bucks into a homeless man's lap because he was on the way to the airport and leaving the country and wouldn't need it he said.

Colin Firth

Ray Nicolet said...

sandybrook said...

Very nice now who was the other guy the Enties were referring to?

CoBe said...

Colin just keeps getting hotter and hotter.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Love that guy. Good on him!

I

LO V E

Colin Firth!

(platonic respect of course! But if he were single, well, that's a whole different story)

Not surprised by this reveal :)

Ray Nicolet said...

Cumberbatch probably

Lauren Turner said...

Or Hiddleston

Karen said...

Love hearing this.

And congrats to mitchellaneous mvdiz who nailed this one!

The Real Dragon said...

He's so hot

TalksTooMuch said...

I also vote Hiddles

CoBe said...

"The other one" is likely Hugh Grant.

Renoblondee said...

Very cool.

Sammy D said...

Sounds like a good guy.

WareCat said...

Bravo!!!
too bad it wasn't Martin Freeman.
Fargo sucked but i had a crush on him.
i have such a fetish for older guys now.
Darcy i wld pass on tho.

Freya said...

@ TTM Did you watch True Blood? So sad but expected.

sandybrook said...

I know how much TTM enjoys Hidds so Ill choose him as the other guy. I'm not so sure Hugh Grant is all that liked though. Once upon a time before his personal troubles yes now maybe not.
Cumberbetch could also be.

BlondeB said...

I love you COLIN!!!

sandybrook said...

Fuck True Blood especially if they do Lafayette.

TalksTooMuch said...

Jessica Larson said...

I thought people liked Colin.

It's Hugh, that no one likes anymore.

meme deemed said...

Hugh's a douche-nanny-hooker lover.
I see no difference b/twn him and the likes of Ho Lohan.

auntliddy said...

Uber nice. Walking the path.

CindyK said...

I love Colin Firth

texas rose said...

Great!! The guy probably drank himself to death or got murdered for his cash. Why not tip the skycap or a service worker in the airport. Someone that could really use the cash and it might make a difference in their lives. While good intended, this sounds like a kindness but is misguided in most cases where homeless guy is just looking for his next drink/fix. Granted, there is nothing in blind about details of homeless guy and many could benefit from this act but just wanted to point this out instead of kneejerk praising this as a wonderful act to be emulated. Hate to be a buzzkill but alot better ways to help homeless.

Gypsytrill said...

Love Actually in the House!!!

AKM said...

Aww, Colin!

crila16 said...

Love Mr. Darcy...with all my heart and soul.

Snapdragon said...

It is a wonderful act because he doesn't assume that every homeless person is a drunk or looking for a drug fix. There are people who work who can't afford a place to live, depending on where they are.

sugarbread maker said...

It sucks this year. Clearly they just want to end this shitshow and find a new job.

nancer said...

the nicest man. this is why i hate people picking him for the 'foreign born' asshole blinds. he's not that guy.

Colin is an idiot. If you're trying to give rid of cash, Over-tip your server or give it to a single mother. Homeless people are 99% addicts or alcoholics. Real nice guy indeed.

TalksTooMuch said...

Yah, eff that guy giving away his own money to someone who doesn't have it! Ahole!

Sherry said...

Wait naysayers. He didn't want to do a $$ exchange. We have no idea which country this is so there's a good chance it's some third world country where he filmed. The chances of them being an alcoholic or addict would be greatly diminished. This person may have truly had a need not associated with dependency.

AKM said...

I'm a social worker who has studied homelessness in-depth, so I know quite a bit about the reasons for it, demographics, etc. About 25% are families with children, and children in general are the fastest-growing population on the streets. Depending on the stats you happen to be reading, anywhere from, say, 30-50% -- hell, maybe even more -- are mentally ill and in need of meds. A terribly disproportionate number of LGBT teenagers are on the streets as well.

Education and compassion...they're beautiful things. :-/

I dropped my out last season, after being loyal from jump. If they kill LaFayette, I won't even bother catching up online.

What an asshole. He could have used that money to by that guy a plane ticket and brought him home with him to be Colins manservant.
Ugh

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW <3 <3 <3

AKM said...

A little OT, but not really...here's a feel-good story about a woman who was homeless. Kitty lovers, you definitely want to read this (and I am sorry that I can't figure out how to make it clicky).

Miss Tuxedo!!!
love it! thank you AKM!

I was thinking that the guy could be murdered if anyone knew he had that cash. Remember the NYC cop who bought the homeless man some nice winter boots? A month or so after a reporter found the guy and asked where the boots are. He said he buried them because he could get killed for them.
