Blind Item #7 - The Predator

I was talking to someone the other day about the movie that recently got screwed over simply because the actress who stars in the movie hadn't slept with someone who could make sure it did really well or really poorly. The actress, who is an Oscar nominee/winner has not really said much about it and there is probably a very good reason. If she did say something, people would start asking her questions about her past and how she got her start. There was that guy who was in her life for a lot of years and got her that first break. Our actress had sex with him for a lot of years and also brought him young actresses she would meet and he would have sex with them too. She was not alone in this. There was another Oscar nominated/winning actress who also got her big break after sleeping with him and continued to do so for a number of years. Because of the status of these two actresses, they were able to bring in a ton of young women and the only ones who got a break were the ones who slept with him.

Taraji and Singleton but not sure of the second actress

Melissa said...

Taraji P Henson, Proud Mary as the movie that didn't get much attention. Not sure who the guy who gave her the first break was. First big role was Baby Boy with John Singleton as the director/writer? But could be a producer.

DonnaMarie said...

Tarja, Singleton and Eva Mendes in Singleton's Fast and Furious

Matt said...

Julia Roberts/Wonder? Did well in box office and great reviews, but not much love in any awards.

DonnaMarie said...

*2 Fast 2 Furious

Alexandria Anna said...

Maybe I'm confusing something, but there was a blind about producers/people with money who refused to promote a movie, because actress refused to sleep with them? Popular guess was Jessica Chastein, I think..?

DonnaMarie said...

nvmnd Eva has no oscar noms

DonnaMarie said...

Taraja, Who was directed in Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons by David Fincher, who casted Rooney Mara in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Matt said...

Julia Roberts/Wonder, and Garry Marshall as the guy who got her that first break (Pretty Woman) and who she brought women to.

Alexandria Anna said...

Nope, Jessica Chastain guess doesn't make any sense, nevermind.

Matt said...

And Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries) as the other Oscar nominated/winning actress who slept with Garry Marshall and brought him women.

MontanaMarriott said...

Actually I believe this is JC the movie being Molly's game. It was supposed to be the flick that got her another Oscar nod. Yet it fell to the wayside into oblivion even after it got rave reviews..

plot said...

This group has a real hard on for Garry Marshall lately. One would think he is the only producer in Hollywood based on CDAN boards.

BayAreaGirl said...

Taraji P. Henson, John Singleton and Angela Basset (Boyz n the Hood) as the second actress.

WitChi Wotcha said...

Taraji is not an Oscar winner only nominated

BayAreaGirl said...

Angela Basset was nominated for playing Tina Turner in "What's Love Got to Do with It"

BayAreaGirl said...

@WitChi - when Enty says "Oscar nominee/winner" it means either won or nominated

Matt said...

@plot you are welcome to make your own guesses that fit all the clues. Roberts/Hathaway/Marshall tick all the boxes.

Julia Roberts has already been featured in Satisfaction, "discovered" in Mystic Pizza, and Oscar-nominated for Steel Magnolias before doing Pretty Woman!

Gary Marshall also producer of "Happy Days," which cast the late Heather O'Rourke and featured the late Erin Moran as well. Marshall would've been in his career prime all through the "They Molested Her to Death" blind timeline. He additionally produced the short lived sitcom "Who's Watching the Kids?" with Scott Baio and Jim Belushi (whatever happened to Caren Kaye, btw? She doesn't even get a headshot on IMDB).

Marshall also gave Robin Williams, who often worked with children and made FFC's creepy "family" film "Jack" and the traumatizing first "Jumanji" movie (among many other questionable pictures), his big break out role in "Mork & Mindy."

Curious to note the only episode of "Happy Days" that Marshall directed was the one with supernatural and occult overtones, "Haunted."

Years and years ago, I worked with someone from Smyrna, Georgia, who went to high school with Julia Roberts. Even in Smyrna, even in high school, her oral talents were renown. People were amazed when she became a big star, because she was a notorious teen town pump. That was before people really knew how actresses got a-head in Hollywood.

Matt said...

She was in a supporting role in Steel Magnolias. Pretty Woman is her first lead role in a big film I believe. Furthermore, Pretty Woman was filmed before Steel Magnolias even came out, and Pretty Woman was released on 23 March, 1990, 2 days before the 1990 Oscars (in which she was a nominee). Her nomination or Steel Magnolias buzz had no bearing on her being cast in Pretty Woman. In fact the Oscar buzz and coming out at the same time with a lead role in Pretty Woman was her big break.

Taraji, Manager Vincent Cirrincione, Halle.

Matt said...

After all, the message in Pretty Woman is: if you find the right rich guy to whore yourself out to, you can make it out of the slums and hit the big time!

I'm on board with you, @SteveD

Taraji (and Proud Mary) is definitely correct as Enty already had a blind on the movie. That blind came out the week aftwr I saw a preview for Proud Mary and we were blind-sided. None of us had heard of this movie even being made.

I love Julia don’t start.

Though she my people she was loose boning left and right.

Jason Patric
Kiefer Sutherland
Dermot Mulroney
Liam Neeson
Denzel Washington (they boned it was noticeable)
Lyle Lovett
Danny Moulder

These are just the ones I remember as a kid. My girl used to get down. But she was fine though. I love her. Don’t play about Julia. Just do not play.

Sandy 2319 said...

I highly doubt Denzel Washington boned Julia Roberts, there was that big controversity bc he didn't want to kiss her bc she was white.. Denzel said it would be a betrayal to his black sisters(black women) for him to do that.

And another one bites the dust...
