Blind Items Revealed

May 8, 2014

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.

Well shes a Mensa member so there's that.

Renoblondee said...

Wow. Didn't think her.

Tigercat said...

Damn, Sharon be a Baller.

airhead said...

Must be lonely

texas rose said...

I wonder if Arnold helped her out in her career like Vannessa when he cast her in the original "Total Recall"?

sugarbread maker said...

What was the biggest fashion fail? I don't get it??

Dena said...

I don't remember her big fashion fail?

Sea Hag said...

Hey, I'm a Mensa member and I don't do all that! But I will admit that every meeting I have attended has been lubricated with copious amounts of alcohol. . .

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Sugartits I thought Enty was talking about the Gap turtleneck she wore to some award show.

Dena said...

Jinx!

Steampunk Jazz said...

I was afraid it was going to be Wynona Ryder ... Schwew (wipes sweat from brow)

jack ducky said...

Doesn't enty constantly refer to Lindsay as former A list?!

QueenAnne Guido said...

I googled fashion fail and came up with her in a grey hefty sack and red gloves. Does anyone still wear gloves?

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Or it could be this mess from 2003 GG.

Tigercat said...

I remember a Vanity Fair interview wherein Sharon went on and on about being a Mensa member. She then proceeded to say that Dylan Thomas was her favorite Irish poet.

Which was brilliant, because DT is Welsh.

:D

Paint Chips said...

I loved her in Casino. She was wonderful as Ginger, the alcoholic drug addict unfaithful wife...

TalksTooMuch said...

This is NOT good beer. Not a good beer at all

Clark Elliot said...

I believe her biggest 'fashion fail' is when she uncrossed her legs in Basic Instinct. No undies. Still resonates today.

QueenAnne Guido said...

Meow tigerkitty. That's what I'm talking bout!

Cecilia00 said...

I think the fashion fail is the Gap thing. Enty is saying that no major designer would give her anything so she had to resort to other ideas and brands.

Tigercat said...

@Paintchips Apparently not a stretch?

Tigercat said...

@Gweeds Bowl of milk for 2!

Kitty got claws! ;)

TalksTooMuch said...

Seriously. Gah

texas rose said...

Clark - I think that was her biggest role that she lucked into.

sugarbread maker said...

I named my chihuahua after her ginger in casino. .Hah

Flora Goforth said...

Her biggest fashion fail was never returning/stealing all the stuff designers loaned her. Now she has to pay for everything.

derek harvey said...

yay me! I love when I guess one right and I have to get scrappy about defending my answer!

Tigercat said...

Go @Derek!!!!!

bellaluna said...

I thought he was talking about the famous crotch shot from that movie she was in.

StuffandNonsense said...

Hate on me all you like but Sharon is in my Fabulous Bitch Hall of Fame.

Blue said...

She is a fabulous bitch of an actress and couldn't look like she does at nearly 60 with a drug problem. I call bullshit.

Unknown said...

Sharon Stone was excellent in Casino and Oscar nominated for her performance. She may be a hot mess, but she's no Lohan in the acting category.

S said...

I also call BS on this. She's not an awful actress and has been nominated for several awards. And if she takes all those drugs, she looks amazing for someone close to 60.

auntliddy said...

Mucho interesting.

Bubbles said...

This is totally true. My first PR job in LA, the office manager used to be a huge party girl back in the day, she slept with David Cassidy when she was a teenager. She told us stories about partying and doing tons of coke with Sharon Stone.

She looks good because she's been getting subtle work done along the way. God Bless her.

Tara said...

Stone's Gap outfit at the Oscars is usually considered a major fashion moment. The outfit was classy and elegant, and people lauded her for her resourcefulness. It went over well and I've seen that outfit mentioned on several E-type fashion specials in a glowing way.

braverwoman said...

Wow she even looks a little like Lohan in the link that Kristen (Wiglet) posted. And yeah, that outfit is a disaster.

debsx said...

i wonder what her health issues are?

Momster said...

She had a brain hemorrhage or stroke or something years ago, and had to have surgery and a long recovery period. I don't think she's an awful actress, not a great one, but not as bad as portrayed.
And if the fashion "disaster" happens to be the black GAP turtleneck, I thought she looked fine. A disaster would be along the lines of Bjork's swan dress.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

She's not a Mensa member, that has been debunked.

She was absolutely gorgeous - luminous - in her prime. And looked pretty darned good into her 50's. Can still look gorgeous today, with makeup and lighting.

But I always had the impression she was a raging bitch.

I heard she went to Davos and bullied all the rich guys in the room to pledge for mosquito nets or something ... most of them never paid, no one knows if the nets were ever delivered. Got the impression it was more about her showing off than actual doing her due diligence and doing good for anybody. All show, no follow-through.

Ah yes:

http://www.columbia.edu/~xs23/catala/articles/2006/Sharon_Stone/Sharon_Stone.htm

And then there was that comment that she could have any man in Hollywood that she wanted.

Gross.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Stone has three fairly young children, all boys, all adopted. Don't see a lot of them. Hope it isn't a 'Mommy Dearest' situation in the making.

She has an excellent figure for a woman her age, even more impressive because she never seems to work out, or at least isn't pictured doing so.

According to IMDB, Stone is actually working on a TV movie called Agent X, in which she plays a U.S. Vice President.

Wikipedia says Stone has admitted she never really was a member of Mensa after all.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

In terms of the fashion fail, maybe Enty was talking about Sharon Stone wearing her husband's dress shirt to the Oscars? She paired it with a long fancy skirt. It didn't look great but it wasn't an EPIC fashion fail.

Penelope said...

Disagree that she's talentless. She was fucking great in Casino and has a ton of charisma.

Sprink said...

There were two particularly famous Oscar looks for Stone, both lauded as examples of how honing a personal style is more effective than being 'bang on trend'.

Also, she was flawless in Casino and surprisingly amusing in Irreconcilable Differences.

Froggy England said...

As much as I wouldn't call her " flawless" or anything that extreme, I would agree sharon stone is a decent actress. She is absolutely not in the same camp as lindsay Lohan in that regard. Also plenty of actresses keep stuff they are give for awards ceremonies and plenty sleep around for parts. When sharon stone started out it was probably the only way to get decent parts. Plenty of them do coke as well. I'm not quite sure why she is being singled out here to be honest. The same stuff could probably be said for most a list actresses of her age, to one degree or another. I also suspect when she wore her own stuff to awards ceremonies it's because she wanted to...designers are known fame whores and they would rush to dress her for the small price of the outfit and she can well afford to buy her own designer frock. It's not like she couldn't afford a shirt or a jumper and was forced to wear her husbands shirt or a gap sweater. She also had nothing that would constitute one of the bigger fashion fails of all time.

Sharon stone was not the original Lindsay Lohan. I call total bs on this blind.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

Sharon Stone definitely has/had limited range as an actress. Basic Instinct was so campy it didn't really call for acting, per se.

She was dreadful in Sliver. With a good director she can perform adequately but she's basically playing above her pay grade in most roles. The thing about her is, maybe a lot of people sleep around for roles in Hollywood but Sharon Stone is GORGEOUS. She truly does have movie star looks.

Both of those fashion fail photographs look great. I wouldn't choose to wear either ensemble but she's so beautiful - and has a great body for clothes - that she pulls them both off.

I also think that about 90% of the time when she's at an event, or on the red carpet, her fashion style is impeccable.

Yes, many stars get styled, but you have to think something of their own fashion sense comes through, and a lot of them consistently look like fashion victims despite access to stylists, hair, makeup, borrowed clothes and accessories.

Yet Sharon Stone almost always looks great.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

And I heard she used to cut her own hair.

Just goes to show, there's no substitute for good genes!

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

OK, I hadn't clicked through to Wiglet's link before I posted that (about her having impeccable taste).

Well, I did hedge a bit by saying 90% of the time!

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

Sorry for serial posting. Wanted to add, I said the husband's shirt didn't look great, then I said it did. First time I was going from memory, second time I googled it. I decided like it! It would look like crap on me, I hasten to add, but she pulled it off.

el80ne said...

Why do people here think Lohan is a bad actress? She's got a ton of talent, she's just been too fucked up and unfocused lately to do anything with it.

Hanwi said...

There's no evidence of Hohan being anything more than an average actress. She can only play one role, the annoying screechy brat.

Dingle Barry said...

Has anyone checked that out? She talks a lot of BS. Then again Mensa and common sense are typically mutually exclusive.

Froggy England said...

I don't think Lohan has proven herself as an adult actress to be able to say she has " a ton of talent". Yes she was a good child actress, passable in the bratty teen role, but I can't say she has proven herself in anything of note.

Tina Mallette said...

A lot of celebrities seem to maintain their good looks in spite of their bad habits. The smart ones slow it down as they get older.

Angela said...

Lindsay Lohan can be a good actress. She was believable as Meryl Streep's daughter in A Prairie Home Companion, directed by Robert Altman (who was monitored by Paul Thomas Anderson), and she holds her own next to people like Kevin Kline, Woody Harrelson, John C. Reilly, and Tommy Lee Jones.

Enty should know by now that success has little to do with talent, and that his opinion about somebody as an individual doesn't necessarily mean that the person in question is untalented and doesn't deserve any success because of so.

The fact is that there are many talented actors in the business who don't find work because they didn't have a breakout part in a film, or they lack some charisma on screen. I don't doubt that there are a dozen actresses who would have been as fine as Lohan in A Prairie Home Companion, but Lohan was good in it anyway.

jackie123 said...

Elizabeth Taylor hated her when she became a spokeswoman for AMFAR The reason was that Sharon's expensive demands of free everything (hotel rooms, food, clothes, jewelry, other outrageous perks, first class travel, entourage) were totally out of control and that they make very little money after funding her. She is now making a career of being a charity spokeswoman.

Maureen said...

Playing to type then. I know people that have worked with her. She's an entitled mess that will take you for anything she can. And she's rude, pushy and a walking mess

Maureen said...

Doesn't she do escort work too? I heard Cannes week is one of her more lucrative gigs. At least she can't take the yachts home. /snark/

Kat has left the building said...

I loooove Sharon Stone. She is always my example as an actress aging gracefully with the kind of plastic surgery that you can't see, and she looks fabulous on and off the red carpet. I love her style so much! It's refreshing to see any celeb with their own taste and even better when she always looks amazing! Ok except for that shredded black dress abomination from thirty years ago someone linked to up top, but I still prefer actresses who go with their own style.

Mark B said...

Unlike Lindsay, she doesn't seem to have had nay lesbian affairs though lol

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Yeah, in the more recent years, I thought she's made a living off of squeezing charities.

Yabba Dabba Doo said...

Agreed with the others above, I think enty's referring to the Gap outfit she wore, and that was considered an innovative win for her.

Suzzique said...

damn

Scallywag said...

Yeah, both GAP outfits she got good press on. The second one with her husband's shirt was made by the Vera Wang skirt.

She's a passable actress, though yes Sliver was horrific. She was very good in Casino, which probably shows that most decent actors can be elevated by working with great ones.

Passable skills + enormous ambition is how you get ahead in show business, and most other businesses.

Claudea said...

@ tiger cat: Good one! :) (oh and i loved your lowe blowe comment also ^_^ )

Xanadu said...

This reminds me of that story of a celebrity (Ellen?) showing an actress around her house and a watch going missing. The details are hazy now, but at the time everyone presumed the culprit was Lindsay Lohan.

Sharon seems to love her boys though..

Xanadu said...

Regardless, I think Sharon's a real movie star. I wish people would cast her in more films.

Missyrocks53 said...

Totally disagree. Very harsh and no reason for it. Lindsay has no real talent but Stone is. She was great in Casino and BI. She can act. Very unfair to characterize her as a no talent. And she's gorgeous, which Lohan isn't. Ridiculous to say she'd never get a job otherwise being beautiful and talented.
