Today's Blind Items - Quick Hits

#1 - Back in the day this actor was A++. Probably the biggest movie actor in the world at the time. He was in a relationship with an actress who is still A- list and is an Academy Award winner/nominee. Apparently they split when he was wasted on pills and booze and beat her.

#2 - Back in the day when this movie won almost a handful of Oscars, people talked about these two stars in the movie who hooked up and later married. What is not discussed is that the A list mostly movie actor slept with almost every actress on that set which his future wife didn't find out about until many years later.

#3 - This A+ list mostly movie actor is married and closeted. His big break and subsequent huge career was because he slept with the director of his first movie.

D Brown said...

1 Burt Reynolds/Sally Fields (don't know if he beat her but both Judy Carne and Loni Anderson claimed he beat them)

Anna said...

I thought Angelica left when he claimed he didn't want kids but got Lorraine (whatever her last name is) pregnant?

Anna said...

My bad - meant to say he didn't want MORE kids and got Rebecca Broussard pregnant (Lorraine is his daughter with her).

Luna said...

Great guess - I like this!

Luna said...

An Enty question of the day should be: would you sleep with a director to get your big break?

Tricia13 said...

Thanks!

SandyC said...

Didn't say they divorced.

Marlin said...

I would think Sally Fields is a permanent a+. But prob right.

Do Tell said...

#1 Mickey Rooney & Ava Gardner. He really was an SOB.

Do Tell said...

#3 Travolta, John Badham (directed Saturday Night Fever), but I didn't know Badham was bi or gay.

Maybe not them?

Marlin said...

Traffic. MichAel Douglas-CZJ

Marlin said...

Oops for #2

8==D KermitGosnellKnobJob said...

Jason Patric was "the biggest movie actor in the world at the time"? Globbits, I cannot even tell his face apart.

Luna said...

HBD, Madonna Madge Esther Ciccone Penn Richie!

French girl said...

With Bryan Singer for the first Xmen movie?

Tricia13 said...

Yep...

Fred84 said...

The wife is still alive. Ava Gardner died in 1990.

Andy said...

Hugh Jackman is the third one I never heard of the guy until he starred in the X MEN franchise. And Bryan Singer is gay. Jackman also is bearded marriage to his older wife. I recall a NY TIMES writer wrote an essay saying he thought Jackman was bisexual.

casting girl said...

Burt Reynolds/Sally Field

Travolta & PRODUCER Robert Stigwood...Karen Gorney got the part because she was Badam's gf at the time. First film I worked on. am so old.

sandybrook said...

No the XMen movie is his second one French Girl, the one I put was his first movie after doing some TV.

Sunspirit said...

Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz

Candy said...

1. Nicholson/ Huston

HH314 said...

The answer is: no. You get breaks from producers so you should focus on them

HH314 said...

And I like Travolta for 3

Salaam said...

I don't think Ridley Scott is anything but pure heterosexual

sheepie said...

Hugh did Kate and Leopold before X Men that was a hit rom com

Hortensia said...

#2: Cleopatra

Do Tell said...

The blind does not state the life or death status of either party.

Do Tell said...

I don't think Burt Reynolds, though a 70's superstar, was ever the number one star in the world, he was in films at the same time as Paul Newman and Robert Redford, who were arguably more popular.

Just4Fun said...

I think he was the #1 Box Office in the world after Deliverance, Longest Yard, & Smokey & the Bandits

biteme said...

Jackman and his wife are both gay, so that works for them.

biteme said...

Beatty was a constant pain in the ass and would argue with anyone for hours and hours on end, but he never hit a woman.

Hmmm said...

I was gonna say Keifer Sutherland and Julia Roberts.

John said...

And it doesn't say married. Candy got it.

Spooky Tooth said...

Will Smith has been famous since his teens. He has sold millions of albums. He also had his own show on NBC.

Spooky Tooth said...

Wesley Snipes has stated Halle was dear in one ear before he met her. Halle's story keeps changing and her most recent version states she was beaten as a teen when the damaged occurred. Media Take Out had a story about numerous people who attended high school with her calling her out on the lies she has told throughout the years. I think this was even a blind recently.

Spooky Tooth said...

Deaf, not dear. Hate autocorrect.

Spooky Tooth said...

An old blind reveal claims Julia hurt Keifer in a bad way and she is partly to blame for his substance abuse issues.

WildCat said...

#1 Sean Connery?
He used to beat his wife & he did LSD with fellow Scot & "psychiatrist to the stars" RD.Laing.

shakey said...

I thought David Justice beat her which is why she became deaf in one ear.
