Blind Item #8 - Dirty Old Man

This actor has been A list for just about four decades. He has been in at least four big franchises that I can recall off the top of my head. Easily one of the biggest box office stars dollar wise ever. Back in the day he went through relationship after relationship because of all his cheating. His current wife has stuck with him through it all because she still thinks he will change. Not likely. He rarely has sex with other women now, but uses his influence to get certain things done. For instance, in his most recent bomb, he had several scenes written in which made no sense and had no chance of ever making the movie. He knew that. The director knew that. The producers and studio knew that. All of the scenes were sex scenes. Not only did he get to audition with the women but the actresses chosen had to go through four hours each of these no chance of getting in the film sex scenes. Of course, they had no idea they were not going to get included, so probably wonder why they ended up on the cutting room floor.

Kevin Costner?

WickedBee said...

+1

Thia said...

Sounds like Costner, but he's not done four big franchises. Bruce Willis has at least four franchises.

Winston Smith said...

Going with Harrison Ford - Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jack Ryan, Blade Runner

Wife - Calista Flockhart -

Jimbonius said...

I'm going with Harrison Ford on this one.

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner, Jack Ryan/Clancy Books as the franchises.

Alexandria Anna said...

I hope not Harrison Ford. He was in Star Wars, Blade Runner and Indiana Jones, so he came to my head immediately..I'll be devasteted if he'll turn out to be creep :/

Don Kieballs said...

Michael Caine? Or Tom Cruise - not old, but definitely a multiple franchise and top studio earner, until his last film, The Mummy, flopped

Tricia13 said...

What sex scenes has he done though? I think Bruce had one fairly recently with a young hirl(Zoe Kravitz maybe... forget films name.. but it was intense

Jimbonius said...

Then again, Bruce Willis has Look Who's Talking, Die Hard, Expendables, and Red.

Hmmmm.

Thia said...

@Trcia13 - Have you seen Color of Night with Bruce Willis? The director's cut is pretty steamy with the sex scenes. I've not seen all of Harrison Ford's movies, but he usually looks too stoned to film sex scenes.

Do Tell said...

Harrison Ford or Sylvester Stallone

Thia said...

And apparently Unbreakable 2 is coming out next year. It's called Glass and Willis is reprising his role.

Tricia13 said...

He also did the whole 9 yards/10 yards and has tumuktous(chearing$ relationship with Demi then women he dated after roll he married Emma. I think Harrison went from ex wife Melissa to Calista...never heard much about other women but not sure

Tricia13 said...

An Sin City

Don Kieballs said...

It won't be a sex scene from the movie, the blind stated the scenes were never intended to make the movie anyway, just appease the actor.

Tricia13 said...

Yes saw it @Thia... yowza!

Rafael said...

Dirty Old Man = Trump or Bill Clinton

hothotheat said...

Stallone was the first to come to my mind.

Zenny said...

I'm going with Stallone.

sandybrook said...

Stallone...Rocky, Rambo, The Expendables and escape Plan, became big with Rocky in 1976.

cap'ngeech said...

Did Harrison Ford really go through relationship after relationship? He's had three long term relationships. I dunno.

longtimereader said...

Harrison has a rumoured fondness for BDSM but this sounds like willis.

Bruce Willis is 62, and that's not old enough to be called "old man who rarely has sex now" ;) Also, he certainly hasn't been A list for four decades, more like three.

I'm going with Ford. He does good job keeping his shenanigans out of the press, but Calista is his third wife and he had an affair with Carrie Fisher when filming SW (while married), so I'd say he's no saint ;)

Mag said...

His "most recent bomb" where sex scenes would not make any sense would be Blade Runner, which sadly bombed at the BO...?

longtimereader: Bruce Willis and his BDSM. Shortly after he married his current wife, W Magazine did a cover story on them and it was photographed in that same theme. You're right on the $. As usual.

kristaylor6663 said...

The seems more Jack Nicholson

Thorwic Thorcar said...

I think I like the Willis guess as the last Sin City was a bomb. Ford really hasn't had one recently. I was surprised to see Stallone is actually only # 65 in box office and that is propped up a by GotG Vol 2.

Mag said...

Oh, and here's the official list of highest grossing actors of all time. Guess who tops it? ;)))

HiHat said...

Warren Beauty?

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Don't forget, Willis has been doing a lot of crappy low-budget direct-to-VOD movies lately, the kinds of films where he shoots a few days in exchange for giving them a name actor, and he can throw his weight around bossing the nobody directors and producers. These films can give him the cover because no one in Hollywood talks about them, and they can audition no name actresses to appear in fake sex scenes.

B626 said...

How I wish a guy like this could spend a few years in the ‘POKEY’ aka the ‘SLAMMER’ with Bubba

Lalalisa57 said...

Stallone is my guess. I hope not tho ;(

Boldblonde said...

I would do a sex scene with Tom C, no questions asked! (don't judge)

Mem said...

"Dirty Old Man" made me think of Dirty Grandpa Robert De Niro, but he doesn't fit.

Ford is a good guess but I dunno about going through "relationship after relationship because of all his cheating" - he might have cheated but both his previous marriages lasted a long time.

Stallone's most recent bomb was Ratchet & Clank, and I don't see them writing live-action sex scenes into an animated kids film, haha. Maybe that's why everyone knew they had no chance of making the final cut.

Melvin makes a good point, Bruce Willis's direct-to-video stuff would be where he would have enough influence to have sex scenes written in. He's only been A list for 3 decades, but that could just be a smudged detail.

wade-o-potatoface said...

Is Stallone known for cheating though?

Arnold was in a few franchises but not currently married.

B626 said...

Bruce W has only been A list since ‘88.
It’s Harrison Ford

Dr.VanNostren said...

Ford prefers the Singer Happy Meal.

Ervin Thompson said...

DeNiro

J2 said...

Morgan Freeman

FififromMtl said...

Wouldn't Harrison Ford be permanent A+? I hope it's gross old dude Willis and not Indy

Sara, Making It Work said...

Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Multiple franchises. Recent flop could be "Collide".

Sara, Making It Work said...

He's also on wife number 3, I believe.

Cheez Whiz said...

I think it is Harrison Ford too. Not that it proves anything, but Ford was, in his early days, a world-class horndog. There was a very illuminating interview in 2014 with Eve Babitz, who was a young party girl in Hollywood during the 70's. Eve knew all the people who would go on to be stars, before they were stars. Very illuminating read. Here's the link:

https://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2014/03/eve-babitz-los-angeles-party-scene


And here's the quote:

“The thing about Harrison was Harrison could fuck. Nine people a day. It’s a talent, loving nine different people in one day. Warren [Beatty] could only do six.”



Kimberly Davis said...

This one reminds me of Warren B....When casting Bugsy, he had decided on Annette Bening early on, but forced casting dir to keep bringing in girls..for his little black book, or whatever.

Unknown said...

It's Robert Redford.

alicecorrine said...

Ford was a serial cheater on his first wife don't know about with Calista.

Lindsay said...

Also Harrison Ford doesn’t seem to do many sex scenes period. His franchises are so well-known - I think anyone would know Star Wars and Indiana Jones wouldn’t have sex scenes.

Joe Dokes said...

Dan Ackroyd.

McJ 2051 said...

Close to 40 years would be someone who made it big late 1970s or very early 1980s ('78-'81 perhaps). Trying to think of actors who came to prominence around then, ignoring the other details and just concentrating on time frames.

Walken ('77),
Sheen (first nominated '68 but really hit big time in '79),
M Douglas ('79 possibly, '75 production),
Stallone ('76),
De Niro ('73 - probably too early),
Pacino ('72 - too early),
Malkovic ('84 - too late),
Goldblum ('86 I would say - supporting roles till then - too late),
Nicholson ('69 - '70 and isn't really actively acting now - too early),
Hoffman ('67 - too early),
Beatty ('61 - too early),
Arnie ('82 - '84),
K Russell ('81),
Cruise ('83),
Willis ('88 - too late),
Freeman ('89 - too late),
Washington ('89 - too late).

So a good few are too early and one or two may be too late. Can't think of anyone who fits better than Ford really (unfortunately) with the 4 franchises detail.

Fairylights said...

Good list MCJ, everyone else I can think of is either too young, doesn't have enough franchises, or is foreign born. The problem I have with H.F. is that I'm not sure Blade Runner would be called a franchise, it's only two movies separated by a lot of years. What's the definition of a franchise?

TheDemimondeOne said...

I think it's Bruce Willis. He was shooting movies here in my town for a while with these straight to dvd movies. The directors and producers are complete weirdos and I could see this happening with these guys. (I am a member of a 5 star hotel's pool/spa in town so we would be there at the pool watching all these people).

There was one called "Vice" that would have definitely fit the bill. My friend was an extra in the movie and she said it was very creepy, although she didn't experience any of that. Or so she said! They had hired "lingerie models" to be the robots in Vice.
That being said, Bruce is the only one that I can see with all the franchises.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

To be different, Samuel L. Jackson. Franchises include Marvel films, Kong, Jack Ryan films, Star Wars, Incredibles and Jurassic Park.
