Today's Blind Items - Kindness

It has been a busy week for this A+ list mostly movie actress. She was just going to get a quick little blind about one act of kindness she performed this week but then had to go ahead and perform another act of kindness so she gets the big blind. Our actress has been A+ list for almost two decades which is crazy. She still makes a ton of movies and is an Academy Award winner/nominee. Scandal has never really touched her from her own doing, but there has been scandal close to her. The first act of kindness was that she foot the bill for two new buses for the school where her child attends. The school was going to have multiple fundraisers and asked our actress if she could donate something to one of the fundraisers. Instead, she just wrote a nice big check for the entire amount.

Then, later this week she was going to dinner at a fancy celeb place and there was a military guy in uniform with his wife and they were celebrating their one year anniversary. Apparently the guy didn't realize he was going to need a reservation and when our actress came in he was talking to the host and trying to work something out. The man was interrupted by the host when he saw our actress and then totally ignored the soldier and his problem. When our actress said she could wait, the host waved her off and said he was happy to help our actress first. Our actress then told the host that she would give up her table to the couple and come back another time. Immediately the host said it wouldn't be necessary because he just happened to have an extra table and he could seat them both. Our actress also bought dinner for the couple and even took some selfies with them but wouldn't let the host in the photos.

Jinx@7 and trainrides!!!!

Bullock

Spiffypaws said...

gotta be Sandra Bullock

Unknown said...

Not sure she would qualify as "scandal has never really touched her from her own doing...."

FSP said...

What kind of school is she sending her kid to that doesn't have a working school bus?

Kno Won Uno said...

I'm not dissing Sandra Bullock, but is she still A+ list? Just askin'. Srsly.

Kno Won Uno said...

@Unknown - Ex was a scuzzball and did some publicly humiliating crap, none of which was SB's doing, if she's the subject of the blind.

Cheryl said...

I think her son is preschool age, so a private preschool might need help funding the buses.

Tricia S said...

Nobody knows what went down bran she and brad....scandal always surrounded it...but who really knows?
And the BBT stuff is just quirky..wouldn't call it scandalous necessarily

Kno Won Uno said...

Forbes says she has a metric f@ckton of money so, OK - I'll buy SB.

Seven of Eleven said...

I think Sandy is forever A+. Her box office bank is $3.5 billion.

Sandra Bullock Is On Top of The World with Her New Film Gravity

Tina Mallette said...

Or maybe Sandy B is sending her kid to a public school, shock gasp.

Simon said...

Angie's kids don't attend regular school. Sandy b for sure

Ray Nicolet said...

So not Angelina. She has had tons of scandals.

Sandy is a great guess!

jack ducky said...

Sandy is wonderful. I love her.

Annie Hall said...

This is definitely SandyB. She has a soft spot for the military.
Sandra Bullock Thanks the Troops at the Spike Guy's Choice Awards

Sea Hag said...

My first thought was Sandy B, too.

teresa crane said...

Yay!! Go SandyB!!

AKM said...

I had a crazy first thought: SJP. She's a big supporter of NYC public schools, right? And the "scandal close to her" could be Matthew's car accident before they were together (or even just the rumours about him in general).

The Academy Award nom/win threw me off that trail, though. So, in the words of Raj, "You know my girl Sandy B. always brings it!"

M. Brown said...

How many A+ movie actresses that have been A+ for two decades and still working plus have school age kids can there be? If Julianne Moore was A+ I'd say her.

Gayeld said...

First person that popped into my head.

Mary Ann said...

Whoever she is, I love her. I hope this one is revealed -- and soon.

msgirl said...

watcha all talking about, the scandal is her husband getting caught in Nazi regalia! And murmurings of whether she knew.

Sandy has proved herself so many times to be an utterly decent person.

All Lace no Leather said...

Kindness blinds shouldn't be blind. Just let us know who it is so we can support their work.

Most likely Sandra.

rolotomassi said...

this is clearly Sandra Bullock with her son,Louis. She put him in school in L.A. so that,in her opinion,he'd "know every color imaginable" which wouldn't've been the case in Austin or New Orleans(her other residences).

Angela said...

Alternate guess: Jodie Foster.
The scandal being the guy who tried to kill Reagan to get closer to her.
A+ since The Accused/Silence of the Lambs.

Unknown said...

If you're responding to me and my response to Tricia, I was referring to the Angelina guess, not Sandra B.

Sherry said...

Hate to make it seem like Blind Gossip where everyone guesses the same person but yes, this seems like something Sandy would do. She has always been so down to earth and never let fame got to her head it seems.

Renoblondee said...

That is so awesome! Gotta be Sandy

Unknown said...

I would love to know the nae of the restaurant so it could be shamed far and wide.

Unknown said...

*name

Scallywag said...

"I would love to know the name of the restaurant so it could be shamed far and wide."

Unfortunately, it could be one of many and they don't care (at the moment). It seems like many people who work as 'hosts' love to play gatekeeper, as if that makes them better than the potential customers.

What they don't understand is that trendy restaurants aren't trendy for long, and once somewhere else is the new trendy place all those folks who could have become regulars remember how assaholic you were and wait to dance on your job's grave.

People who excel at that job are what keep good restaurants in business.

Jennifer said...

How has Angie never had scandal by her own doing? Her wierd relationship with her brother, drug use, the blood stuff....pretty much everything she does is scandal by her own doing. This cant be Angie.

PotPourri said...

Sandra Bullock only had a scandal by association, Jesse James. She's got to be a very wonderful, down-home person.

Unknown said...

Julia Roberts busy week at the Emmys. School age kids Sandy wasn't seen this week was she?

Turkish Taffy said...

Sandra B. is still A+ for "Gravity"

Basil said...

How about Goopy? I know she can be insufferable but I don't think at heart she is a mean person.

Yoj said...

@Basil
Look at how cute you are, thinking Goop's kids go to a school that uses buses!

Reese said...

Hope it was Sandra B.; sounds like something she would do.

Looking forward to this reveal.

ecua said...

Yes, Angelina J has been at the epicenter of scandal. Don't try to make the square peg fit.

ecua said...

+1 Seven

Zach said...

Def Sandy. Though to be nitpicky, I don't think that she has been consistently A+ all these years. She had some slow years before peaking recently. But she's definitely A+ for twenty years in Enty's world.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

How can anybody ask if Sandra Bullock is still A+ list?

evie2345 said...

I think so. She won an Oscar not too long ago, and Gravity was huge last year. I think she's also considered one of the most well-liked celebrities out there.

evie2345 said...

My first thought was Amy Adams, but Sandra is a good guess too.
Whoever it is, that's a truly nice person.

Alvin said...

Gravity, The Heat, The Blind Side, The Proposal... All mega blockbusters with Sandra getting top billing. Yeah, she's A+ and I love this blind.

megan00m said...

I want this to be Minnie Driver. Because I think shes terrific..but lots of movies now doesnt fit....btw hi all...been awhile since I comnented.

Yoj said...

@megan00m
Welcome back!

Lila said...

Yes, Sandra is A+. She has won an academy award. Scandal near her but not directly to her is her dumbass Nazi ex husband.

anon said...

I want this to be Sandra Bullock but I don't think she's had a busy week.

Julia Roberts was at both awards shows this week, out on the red carpet and she's got school age kids so my money is on her. I'd be shocked if it's her, she seems like such a bee-otch.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

In Julia Roberts's defense (and I'm not a fan since her half-sister's suicide) ... she did donate $2 million cash to Haiti relief.

Bee Haven said...

Sandra was my first thought too seven - I think you got this one!

Yoj said...

@Prunella Buggerweeds
In march Enty called Julia Roberts former A+.
Bullock may not have been "busy", but she has been getting press. First, they announced a new film in which she'll star with George Clooney, then there was the appearance on 'Chelsea Lately'.

Unknown said...

Julianne Moore for sure

Hegg said...

Pretty vague, but gonna say Julianne Moore just cause she is no doubt at least A list. I've heard
Sandra B. isn't the sweetest person around.

freckledk said...

My first thought was Jodie Foster.

daydreamer said...

She IS. Forbes listed her as 2014 HIGHEST paid actress. She's the only woman in top 20 with the highest paycheck in Hollywood history with $51M for Gravity which was just in 2013.
