Four For Friday - Someone Help Me

If you were just barely a teen and were on a film set a long way from home, things would be tough. If your boss, a permanent A+ lister sent away your minder every night so he could tuck you in, you too would still wake up screaming in the middle of the night two decades later. Such is the fate of this former child actress who was in one of the biggest movies of all time. She says it started one night when she was on set and the A+ lister said he wanted to go over a few lines with her that night after dinner. He came to her hotel room and sent away the person in charge of watching over her. From that night, for the next month, she was molested and assaulted and forced to do things she has never done since even with her new husband. The A+ lister took away her childhood and her teen years. He took away every happy memory she had prior to that date and made every day the worst. She has undergone years and years of therapy. She refuses to talk about the film to anyone because she breaks down in tears. She will never join in any tribute to the A+ lister because of what he did to her. When she needed to scream and shake in the movie, she had no problems with motivation. She would just think about the night before.

Spielberg was the first person that came to my mind.

Minder was a POS too.

Was coming to type what Steve Landry already did.

Ariana Richards ftw.

Spielberg/Drew Barrymore/ET?

Boo Hearne said...

OFF SUBJECT: N Y POST HEADLINES

Harvey Weinstein too broke to pay first wife the $5 mil child support he owes her. Asked her to give him a year. Comment from reporter: He will end up paying out multi-millions to lawyers all over the world to help him fight all the rape allegations. The second wife, Georgina, did better this week. She got millions and property and...

Steven Seagal. The grits finally hit the fan.

Ariana on Spielberg on Ariana: "How do you get to this level of fear? Were you scared by a clown when you were 2?"

So, maybe not?

Boo Hearne said...

E T came out in the early 80s. This is NOT Drew or Spielberg.

filmfanb said...

Ariana is a good guess

Tim said...

Ariana Richards in 2013.

Working With Spielberg

“I have so many good memories. He brought so much fun to the experience for us as kids. He was so warm, energetic, and enthusiastic in his responses to us. When we would get a scene just right, he would jump out of his seat and run over and give Joey and I a big hug and say, ‘That was exactly what I wanted!’ Those moments really stick out to me now, after all those years. As an adult, it’s nice to look back and say, ‘That’s pretty great [that] I got the chance to work with this extraordinary group of people on this film.’ And I’ve still stayed in touch with Steven over the years.”

Spider Rico said...

@ boo hearne - no date was mentioned here. It's Spielberg/Ariana/ Jurassic Park 1 million percent.

Don Kieballs said...

I think it could be Ariana, but for The Lost World, filmed in many places including Hawaii, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. It was her last big movie and last time working with Steilberg

Lalalisa57 said...

So the “boss” is Spielberg?

Spider Rico said...

@ Tim - that means nothing really. What she gonna do? Come and go yeah he did this and that and he's a rapist pig?

sandybrook said...

Boo I hope you don't think Harvey is broke. He's trying to avoid paying support like every other POS who's getting a divorce.

andy81 said...

she was 18 when jurrasic park was filmed!? not barely a teen, right?

filmfanb said...

Honest question, will Spielberg ever be brought down or is he untouchable?

Dena said...

How long before Spielberg's champion pops in to explain (300 words+) how this is categorically NOT Spielberg?

spacecowboy78 said...

@ Andy 81 - I think you better check your math.

Khaleesi said...

I immediately thought Ariana/Spielberg as well, but her comments aren't adding up:


"It’s actually amazing to me that I haven’t gotten tired of talking about Jurassic Park yet, after all these years! I have so many memories, and it was a very rich experience. Out of 30 or 40 films I’ve been in, this one really is a standout, and there is so much to talk about."

Alexandria Anna said...

I guess Spielberg is the biggest permanent A+ lister, who is suspected to be a pedo, and who made some of the biggest movies of all time, and who was often making movies with kids and teenagers..

Ariana/Jurassic/Speilberg guess is the best one.

Kevin said...

The Ariana quotes make it tougher but what other "biggest movies of all time" fit the bill?

- Doesn't mention the job of the A-lister
- Movie was filmed in foreign country most likely
- Movie came out in the 90s
- Victim was actress, "recently" married
- Role involved screaming

Heather L said...

Ariana talks a lot about the Jurassic Park films and speaks highly of Spielberg so I find it hard for me to think she fits the blind if the blind states she wants nothing to do with the A-Lister's tributes... But I still totally think the permanent A+ lister is Steven Spielberg.

Tim said...

@Spider Rico, the clue doesn't match up. She does talk about the movie and give interviews. Here, from 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xz3HId5d0tc Also, was married in 2013. We're looking for someone recently married.

Dena said...

@filmfanb - He's got so much money that he'll never see the inside of a jail cell, but if enough people come out with their stories it could definitely harm his career. Hopefully it would keep him away from kids in the very least.
(Just my opinion, obviously)

andy81 said...

math is fine @space, just skipped the original and thought about The Lost World: Jurassic Park ^^ my bad.

CuriousTex said...

Ariana guesses do not make sense in light of:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3112324/She-couldn-t-wait-share-movie-William-Harry-Child-star-original-Jurassic-Park-tells-met-Princess-Diana-Steven-Spielberg-chose-Hint-Piercing-screams-face-T-Rex.html

Khaleesi said...

The first time I read it, I took "new" husband to mean the actress recently remarried. Not saying that was accurate, just a different take on the word, "new".

Boo Hearne said...

sandy! I was just quoting the headlines now on-line at NY Post.com. Miramax has been teetering on the edge for a long, long time here. I applied for an adm. asst. job there years ago. I really wanted to work there because of the films they were churning out. And the major actors, as well. After my interview, I got a confidential call from someone in the office who told me, "You definitely have all the skills and qualifications for the position. Uh...they will shred you to pieces before lunch! And, while I'm being honest, the company is barely holding on financially." I took another job at a more reputable company.

Katherine Manley said...

Jumanji - Kirsten Dunst

Cail Corishev said...

I'm not sure it says the movie was two decades ago. It says she would still wake up screaming two decades later. That could mean it took that long for her to stop screaming, with therapy, but she could have improved to that point years ago. So I don't think it rules out longer ago, though I think 1990s is more likely.

Maybe Weinstein isn't broke, exactly, but having trouble accessing his funds for reasons he'd rather not state in public.

Carolyn said...

The "someone help me" is a clue - I was trying to remember whether Lex says this in Jurassic Park or not.

Thursday November said...

Mara says great things about Williams and was still in contact with him, Drew says great things about Spielberg and is still in contact with him. Both have been at events honoring those men.

Khaleesi said...

Kirsten isn't married, just engaged, and Jumanji was mostly shot in New England (I think some in Canada too). She's from NJ so not that far away.

Silly said...

Christina Ricci - Casper - Spielberg an executive producer / the boss . She was already quite famous in the 90s with the Adams Family.

Silly said...

She married in 2013 - “new husband”

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Just to be different: Keira Knightly/George Lucas, Star Wars: Phantom Menace

daria morgendorffer said...

Ariana made a tv movie later where she played a teenage track star who was raped by her coach. I remember seeing it on Lifetime at one point and thinking, "oh I haven't seen her in so long." There are reasons why someone who had been through a real-life traumatic event like this would act in a similar role on tv (it's part of their healing to face it head-on, they don't want to give it any power of them anymore, or sadly, their parents made them take the role or they need to take the role for money), BUT. I just can't imagine that an actress who experienced what this person experienced and to this day describes it so harrowingly would re-live any aspect of that in a tv movie just a few years later.

So while some parts of the blind seem to fit her and Spielberg on Jurassic Park, her earlier quoted comments and this movie are making me doubt that.

texasrose said...

A couple of comments. The blind mentions 'new husband'. Ariana Richards was married in 2013. I guess they could just be referring to when she got married at the time but if it means she just got married then 2013 isn't new. On the other hand just because there are quotes out there praising Spielberg it doesn't mean the blind is wrong about her joining in an tributes because chances are her publicist or agent may have given that quote to some reporter. I'm still having a hard time dealing with the Spielberg rumors. Speilberg??Really??:(

Don Kieballs said...

Speaking of Christina Ricci - It was great seeing her on the latest ep of Match Game. She looks so different with her short blond hair, but she also looked healthy and happy. Same episode that Jane Krakowski said Chinese people eat dogs - I freaking love her, not because of that comment, just because she is so talented and doesn't mind mocking herself. (I know we are supposed to hate Alec Baldwin, but he is so good at hosting that show)

southerngirl said...

Bridges Brother - Lebowski -

Sparkly Girl said...

Ariana would have been around 13 when it filmed. Her quotes throw this off but she seems to be the best fit.

Jessi Breen said...

sounds like Natalie Portman to me but I don't want to guess the A-lister one of my favorites is in it . Star wars Phantom menace

Goldie Fawn said...

Mischa Barton
Bruce Willis
The Sixth Sense.

Jeweled Skye said...

I immediately thought Drew and ET... but I still don't want to get on the Spielberg abuser train and Drew isn't newly married (still trying to figure out that Tom Green coupling). I will go back to putting my head in the sand....
Oh, and what's with the comment yesterday from Donald Cox regarding victim shamers.. was that a threat? Am I supposed to be intimidated that I am included in his list? WTF? To the rest of the CDAN commenters - I apologize that I'm not intimidated by my name being posted amongst yours and your comments... That's the only apology I'm willing to make at this time.

Cargosquid said...

Kirsten Dunst-12
Interview with a Vampire. 1994
Quote: Girl- "someone help me."
Currently engaged...not married...expecting child.
Movie was FULL of permanent A-listers.

Mag said...

To people guessing Jumanji - would you seriously call it one of the biggest movies of all time??? I get confused with the American perspective on rating here, be it people or productions, as they tend to differ form what foreing audience would think ;) However, while there are two Jurassic movies on the list of highest grossing movies of all time, while
Jumanji is nowhere near it.

Cail Corishev said...

It might be worth noting that it never says what "list" the actress is/was, or whether she's ever acted again. She might be someone we wouldn't recognize. I'm also not sure it says the abuse happened on the "one of the biggest movies of all time" or if it could have been on a different movie she was in, and that was just a clue to her identity.

Lea said...

I immediately thought of Ariana and The End Boss... doesn't he usually have more than one + after his A though? 🤔

Lea said...

What are the biggest movies of all time?

Glue said...

Interesting guess Cargosquid - Interview w/ a Vampire was HUGE when it came out. Trying to figure out who is the permanent a lister who did this to the girl - I don't think it's Pitt, Cruise or Banderas. Then again, these days, nothing would be surprise me.

Tom Cruise
Brad Pitt
Antonio Banderas
Christian Slater
Stephen Rea

Neil Jordan was the director.

carriestar said...

I don't have any guesses. I was going to say Amber Scott (Hook), but she was too young. So many of these blinds seem to overlap with Spielberg. I sincerely hope he wasn't involved in anything like this but if he was that it comes out.

Khaleesi said...

I agree, @Cail.

@texasrose - When I was looking Ariana/Spielberg up, she herself was saying those quotes in interviews, both in print and in person. The problem I mostly had was that she seems to talk A LOT about the movie, and all of her happy memories about it (see the quote I pasted in above), which really discredits what the Blind says about her refusing to talk about the movie and him taking away every happy memory she has of it.

okok snoke said...

Linda BLair?

The Exorcist?

Katherine Manley said...

My guess mostly based on the newest jumanji movies released and dunst in news as newly engaged and married. 20 years ago it was a blockbuster but yea, nowhere near jurrasic.

JWill said...

I was trying to make Linda Blair fit, too, but I don't think she is married.

Cail Corishev said...

I don't understand why, but Jumanji comes up #1 on this list of 1990s movies sorted by popularity at IMDB. No idea whether its director is permanent A+ list, but I've never heard of any of the producers.

By the way, it says the permanent A+ lister was her boss. That means a producer or the director, not an actor, right?

Queen of Pith said...

The quote is from the movie saw. Makenzie Vega is the actress and got married about a year ago.

Katherine Manley said...

Dorvannnn said...

Here's another possibilty

Eliza Dushku (Wikipedia says she got engaged in June 2017)

True Lies

Permanent A Lister: either James Cameron or Arnold Schwarzenegger

okok snoke said...

NO WAY JUMANJI IS A PERMANENT A+ MOVIE. Its a B grade movie with a somewhat Cult following.

The A+ lister, if you thought Robin Williams, would NOT be her 'Boss' it would be a producer/director OBVIOUSLY.

Katherine Manley said...

Can't edit above post, should say jamanji movie and pregnant not married

boredatwork boredatwork said...

These blinds about young girls make me particularly sick. I have no idea, about the girl, the film the monster that did this to her, but where the fuck where her parents? How can you leave your child like this?

Maude Labowski said...

Christian Slater stands out as the one with predatory ways out of that list

A dumb idiot said...

Ariana Richards doesn't seem to fit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRYT-zdJlgQ

Silly said...

Christian Slater is a sicko

texasrose said...

@Khaleessi- In that case I agree.

Lexi said...

Jumanji is questionable as a "biggest movie" but Laura Bell Bundy married in 2017.

roxy said...

Two decades ago is pretty specific for Enty.

1998....

Off to hunt clues.

Gia said...

Carrie Henn (Newt) Aliens?

ImmodestyBlaise said...

Weren't there a few comments in the Dina Merrill/Lady blind that Christian Slater could be a Himmmm (they worked together on a couple of things)?

PG Tips said...

I am guessing Spielberg, although I am having a hard time figuring out the actress because of the 'one of the most successful movies'. I would have gone for either Jurassic park or Jumanji.

Zenny said...

@queen of pith...Saw came out in 2004. That's not two decades ago. Also Saw is not one of the biggest movies of all time.

Khaleesi said...

@Gia - I couldn't find that Carrie is married.

Mz Kitty said...

Was Christian Slater wearing sneakers at the GG's? There's a pic of him and James Franco together...

Boo Hearne said...

GLUE: OMG! Stephen Rea! One of my favorite actors. He was a very close friend of the late Sam Shepard. Was in all his latest plays in NYC. Met him Valentine's Day a few years back on the street, by accident. He said he was surprised I knew who he was?! It was a freezing cold day but he stood on the sidewalk with me for 15 minutes. He later called me at home to thank me for a gift I left for him at the Box Office. What happened to him? Haven't seen him in anything of late. Anyone know?

Baby Face said...

Keira Knightly or Natalie Portman...Phantom Menace...George Lucas.

roxy said...

Jumanji was the 10th highest grossing film of 1995.

Whoever this was, this happened prior to their teen years.

Baby Face said...

Keira...Natalie worked with him again

Bitchy Woman said...

This is why I have not paid to see any movies within the past 3 years.I refuse to support any of them in good conscious.Too many to ever know who the "Bad guys" are.When we run to every movie and make it a box office success,it feeds their power,makes us enablers in a way.Most blinds have so many it could be ,and that in itself is sickening.

Count Jerkula said...

George Lucas/Natalie Portman/she's never banged that dancer hubby of hers, just a turkey baster full of splooge.

BayAreaGirl said...

Natalie & Keira would have been too old during the filming of Phantom Menace. The blind says the actress was barely a teen = 13.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Ariana Richards, Drew Barrymore and dead Heather O'Rourke all share a lot of qualities, doncha think?

Jon said...

My first thought as well. Makes sense why she never worked again. Married in 2005.

Mag said...

I have no guess so I apologize for only questioning other guesses, but is says the actress never talks to anyone about the movie lest she'd start crying. Keira was on Graham Norton show talking about Star Wars, and she seemed more than fine doing that.

@Boo Hearne: I LOVE Stephen Rea, too. Which is why I was so surprised to learn some time ago about his involvement with the IRA (he used to be married to one of the famous female terrorists Dolours Price, and acted as a voice for Gerry Adams at the time when GA was not allowed on British media). Wow, the things you can learn about people you only know from the screen...

Baby Face said...

Natalie was born in 1981...Just a 1985...Menace came out in 1999...shot a year or two before.

Don Kieballs said...

Cargosquid I was trying to figure where "someone help me" fit in. Thanks for the Interview with the Vampire guess. I'm not sure if it's right, but it fits the blind, but it fits the clue in the title. But I don't think the movie qualifies as one of the biggest of all time.
I've enjoyed a few of Neil Jordan's work. I loved The Crying Game (and remember it or Neil or Stephen Rae being in a recent blind or guess)

Sara, Making It Work said...

I'm wondering if "who was in one of the biggest movies of all time" is just a clue to the actress, but maybe doesn't mean that's where this happened.
Like for example, Natalie Portman was in Phantom Menace (big movie), but perhsps the incident happened on the set of a different movie, like Mars Attacks. Time Burton would be A+ lister.

Baby Face said...

Keira was born in 1985...would have been 12-13 while shooting.

PG Tips said...

Sara, that is a great point.

Stigofthedump said...

ScarJo, Robert Redford, The Horse Whisperer (and a different film for "in one of the biggest films ever). She would have been 13/14 filming it. RR was director, producer, actor so would have been her boss and work lines with her. Think she has an accident in it so that might link to the title?

BayAreaGirl said...

Vanessa Chester was 13 when Spielberg cast her in Lost World, but she appeared at the movie's 20 yr anniversary celebration & gave an interview.

I really can't think of a display name. said...

Just throwing a name out there, but what about LeeLee Sobieski?

Leelee was 14 when she did Deep Impact with Elijah Wood, and Spielberg was involved with the film.

Reading her wiki page and elsewhere, she seems to come across as quite "damaged" emotionally.

Carolina Prado said...

Stigofthedump very unlikely, The Horse Whisperer was mostly filmed in Montana, and there are no scenes in which Scarlett screams in panic (the character suffers an accident while on her horse but it happens all too fast and she barely has time to realize what's happening).

I can't think of anything new, sorry. Just going to take a look at the movies louched in '98 and see which actresses were 12-13 filing overseas

Count Jerkula said...

If not phantom crap, Arnold/Alyssa Milano/Commando?

Michael Douglas/drugged out daughter/Traffic

David Bowie/Jennifer Connelly/Labrynth

Morgan Freeman/Ana Paquin/Amistad

joshg g said...

Dushku and Dunst aren't married, Henn too old and married in 2005

Alana Smithee said...

Hi! Long time lurker here:
my guess to be different:

Natalie Portman - Luc Besson. (Leon, the professional 1994)

AIP said...

@Boo: Stephen’s still working, I last saw him in the BBC version of War & Peace two years ago and Dickensian. I think he’s likely in some stuff coming out this year: I heard he’s in an upcoming film on the Great Famine, which in just the first sentence of its synopsis sounds like it’s going to be ahistorical nonsense.

Regarding the blind, I thought it referred to Interview as well, as I don’t think Kirsten really talks about it. It was YUUUUUUUGE back then.
Not sure who the A+ lister is. I don’t think Neil Jordan is that high up anymore, although he was in the 90s.

Unknown said...

Eliza Dusku, no way. She's very outspoken and political, and True Lies was filmed in the continental US. She's also not married, yet.

Linda Blair, no way - too long ago, for The Exorcist to be her almost a teen movie.

The actress would be in her early 30's, recently married, and was in a big movie in the late 90's, that was filmed "far away", like offshore, or out of the country.

Natalie Portman would have been 13 in 1994 (born 1981). The movie she worked on that year was Leon: The Professional, directed by Luc Besson. Parts of the movie were filmed in Paris, the rest NYC, where she's from. This could have occurred in Paris. She had a speaking role in that film. It's not Star Wars, because she was 17 when filming that. The part that doesn't work is she married in 2010, and Leon wasn't one of the biggest movies of all time. So it's most likely not Portman.

Kirsten Dunst kinda fits. Right age, big movie, filmed in British Columbia, but is the director Joe Johnston A list? And, she's spoken very warmly about working with Robin, and said she'd definitely do a cameo for the reboot, doesn't sound like she's negative about Jumanji. She made Interview with a vampire at the same time, tho. Cant find any interviews she did talking about it, other than her first kiss being Brad Pitt. And she was treated for depression. Would Neil Jordan, the director of Interview, be someone having tributes done? And is Interview considered one of the biggest movies of all time?

Alana Smithee said...

@unknown

I said Natalie Portman because Enty said: " Such is the fate of this former child actress who was in one of the biggest movies of all time."

I don't think he is talking about Leon the professional, but she was indeed in Star wars.

Mag said...

I just checked IMDb - Interview with the Vampire has only one production credit listed: Geffen Pictures (and David Geffen personally). Here's your permanent A+ "boss".

Freestar said...

Interesting guess. Demi's definitely been involved with some crazy shit. That footage of her trying to make out with that kid and I'd believe AK a creep.

Freestar said...

But she's not married.

Hmax17 said...

My first thought was Natalie Portman but what about AnnE Hathaway and Gary Marshall? Film is Princess Diaries? I figured the director is dead since it said tributes?

Darkmyst said...

Natalie Portman
Luc Besson
The Professional

Dodo said...

Basically noone has a clue. Even if someone hit it. No year, no movie, no A+ boss, no victim. Did it happen on the set of that one biggest film of all time, or she just appeared in that as well. Not even if it is recent marrige or second marrige.

Mag said...

@Dodo - Unless next week we learn that "Kirsten Dunst and Jessee Plemons married last weekend in a private ceremony" ;)

Count Jerkula said...

Akroud/chumsky/my girl

Peter Boyle/Jodie Foster/Taxi Driver

Dennis Quaid/winona ryder/great balls of fire

Unknown said...

Just throwing this out there - some "Top Film Lists" have Forrest Gump as one of the top films of all time.

Young Jenny, Hanna Hall, would have been 10 or eleven, "almost a teen".

Director: Robert Zemeckis

She had to travel from CO to the South to film.

The only missing piece is I can't find out if she's married.

She needed saving in the movie, from her father.

Zemeckis is definitely someone who would have tributes.

@Jerkula - the blind said one of the greatest movies of all time. Not your personal collection, lol.

Mag said...

"Barely a teen" meens the youngest teen possible. "Almost a teen" means noty a teen yet. Not the same, even if close.

Count Jerkula said...

Emma Watson/Peter Jackson/Hairy Pooper Nd rhe Sorceror's Bone

Chaplin/uncle Fester/ the kid

totaji said...

Isn’t “Someone help me” from Poltergeist? Obviously it’s not Orourke, but it could be a clue about Spielberg. Biggest movies of all time: Titanic, Star Wars, Gone with the Wind, and SS’s 80’s catalogue.

wade-o-potatoface said...

Tried to make Indpendence Day fit- 1996- Lisa Jakob.... she’s from CA filmed in UT and NM.
Born in 78.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

It's interesting how this forum has gotten fixated on Spielberg. To be clear, I have no idea, but of all the blinds in which he gets called out, I think there was only one (I've seen) where he seemed to fit the clues very well. I mean, maybe? But I think everyone's just kind of getting excited about what a shocker it would be.
And yes, I am aware I said "Shocker" on a thread with Count Jerkula. I eagerly await his- OOOH! There it is!

Alana Smithee said...

Luc Besson is a creepo:

1991, Besson began a relationship with a 15-year-old actress named Maïwenn Besco. She had their child when she was 16. At the time, Besson was already a 32-year-old...

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Was Keira Knightly ruled out?

Rosenthal said...

It says she was was in one of the biggest movies of all time. Not necessarily the movie that the abuse happened.

Jane F said...

Makes sense for the tribute part

Boo Hearne said...

Leelee Sobieski? Wasn't there something on CDAN about what she went through filming Eyes Wide Shut with the director I can't stand? I think I remember it was more than she was able to handle at her age and she went off the rails. Anyone remember this?

Beyond EMF said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Beyond EMF said...

Keira is a good guess. Age is right for the blind. Married in 2013. Film set of Star Wars: Ep. 1 with Dir: George Lucas.

Biggest movies: Bend it Like Beckham, Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean series

James said...

It could be Ariana original JP came out in 93 she would've been 13/14

Amused said...

Portman says that she has definitely never been assaulted, but has been harassed etc.

“When I heard everything coming out, I was like, ‘Wow, I’m so lucky that I haven’t had this.’ And then, on reflection, I was like okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I’ve had discrimination or harassment on almost everything I’ve ever worked on in some way,”

http://www.indiewire.com/2017/11/natalie-portman-sexual-harassment-sexism-hollywood-1201899505

James said...

I just read somewhere Ariana was 12 either during shooting or after the release of JP not sure which though I'm wondering if that age is correct considering Ariana was born in 79

Tricia13 said...

👍same here

Donald Cox said...

You won’t mind me posting it again then

Here’s a list of CDAN victim-blamers I intend to post in as many blinds as possible #TimesUp


Count Jerkula (misogynist and racist)
Do Tell
boredatwork boredatwork
Bobby Digital
Mad Hominem
MovieBuff
Totaji
Eff Yiew
Cail Corashev
Mark
Jeweled Skye
SteelyKnives
Phyllis Whitweed

Let me know if more need to be added

Donald Cox said...

There are Shitty Media Men and Shitty Academia Men lists - this is the Shitty CDAN Poster list. If you’re on it, you’re shitty.

totaji said...

Yo Donald I’m not a victim blamer at all. Why would you think that?

Melvin The Reanimated said...

You know what? What if we are thinking about this wrong? Whatif it didn't happen on the set of the big film? What if that's just a clue? Which big films starred a former child actress who made another film with a permanent A+ lister -- who is not necessarily a director per the blind, just A+ list something -- when she was 12-14, give or take a few years?

anonymous said...

I'm more suspicious of someone who would actually compile a list of people who have unapproved or unpopular opinions than those who hold those opinions. #virtuesignal

GingerGirl said...

It says far from home, doesn’t have to be outside of the USA.

I loved The Professional but I doubt it was one of the biggest movies of all time. Doubt Interview is either.

The phantom trilogy is definitely one of the top grossing.

Boss sounds like Director to me, not co-star.

I hate speculating on victims but the perv should be outed.

roxy said...

There is no screaming by the character of "Jenny" as a child in Forrest Gump.

Trying to remember if Bill Pullman's "daughter" did any screaming in Independence Day.

Chloë Grace Moretz in lots of remakes also back with old bf "new"

Melvin The Reanimated said...

What if, as said before, it WAS Kirsten Dunst?

David Geffen produced Interview with the Vampire.

She was in Spider-Man,one of the top grossing films of all time.

Recently engaged to Jesse Plemons -- her new, soon to be husband.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Have there been any blinds on John Hughes?

Mag said...

@Melvin The Reanimated - Just what I meant. If there is one A+ industry predator without the actual profession/capacity being mentioned that comes to mind instantly after reading CDAN for some time, it's Geffen. "Boss" needs to be producer and/or director. And KD seemed pretty messed up for years. I think it fits.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

I don’t think it’s DG. For this to happen for what seems often for quite a month and how it states it not being a problem for her to act i scared, it has to be a director. I just don’t see DG lingering around a set.

Which is why I asked about John Hughes. Scarlett Johansson did Home Alone 3 which was directed by JH. Colin Jost, her bf, has stated that he intends on marrying her. Thoughts?

How about Oliwa Dabrowska, the Girl in the Red COat from Schindler's List?

fairylights said...

I think I missed something (occasionally life does exist outside CDAN), but when was Donald Cox appointed the CDAN police? When did we get the upgrade to our own police department?

Here is a list of the 15 top grossing movies of the '90s:
Titanic (1997)
Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)
Jurassic Park (1993)
The Lion King (1994)
Forrest Gump (1994)
Independence Day (1996)
The Sixth Sense (1999)
Home Alone (1990)
Men in Black (1997)
Toy Story 2 (1999)
Twister (1996)
The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
Mrs. Doubtfire (1993)
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Ghost (1990)
I haven't seen most of those movies, obviously Beauty and the Beast and Lion King didn't have any kids on screen, does this spark any ideas?

Mag said...

@Unknown, just read the damn thing: it scarred her because she watched the actual movie when very young (although Spielberg had made her promise not to watch it before she turned 18) and what she saw was too much for her. Not because of anything that happened to her when shooting. Also, she was 3 when the film was made, not 13. Also, she's not an actress and is not involved in the movie industry at all (only made 1 other movie 3 yrs after Schindler's List). There's no way you can make her and Spielberg fit ;)))

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Couple thoughts based on @fairylights's list:

What if it were one of the McAllister sisters from Home lone? Angela Goethels, Diana Rein and Hillary Wolf (who pretty muchquit acting nearly right after to become an Olympic Judo star) were all around 13 when it came out. Produced by John Hughes, directed by Chris Columbus,who also does a lot of films with kids.

Another guess? Mischa Barton, 13 when she did The Sixth sense, produced by Frank Marshall. though I don't think she is married.

lutefisk said...

How about someone from overseas that was in the United States for the filming?

Melvin The Reanimated said...

So this blind's got me thinking about this one from November:

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2017/11/todays-blind-items-long-time-coming.html?commentPage=2

Everyone assumed then it was SS/Richards. But I posted this comment in the threads

"So I've been giving this some thought, and we all seem to be stuck on making SS work. And while we can, if we do some gymnastics, there is another name that could work just as easily, and has the same connections: Chris Columbus

The old friend Enty hints at could very well be, as some people mentioned, Jeff Cohen, entertainment lawyer, who appeared in THE GOONIES, which Columbus wrote and could theoretically have been on set for. Michael Jackson certainly was:

http://www.slashfilm.com/michael-jackson-the-goonies-set-videos/

The teenage girl with the younger costar could likely be Angela Goethels, who was 13 when she made Columbus's biggest hit -- HOME ALONE, which was HUUUUGE at the box office -- with her 10 year old costar Macauly Culkin. The sweaty B lister could very well be Daniel Stern or John Heard.

As for the first grader with the DVD? In 1999, Columbus made BICENTENNIAL MAN, (y'know, right after DVD came out was still pricey), which starred '90s "Pepsi Girl" Hallie Kate Eisenberg (and a whole host of other kids) who was all of 7 years old (first grade age) when she acted in the film.

in other words...all the pieces essentially fit, much better than SS.

As for Columbus being pemrnanent A+ list? ehh, he's seen better days, but then again when you've written and/or directed the number of classics he has (including GREMLINS, MRS DOUBTFIRE and the first HARRY POTTER) it earns you a lifetime pass."

It still could work. There were three thirteen year olds in Home Alone,which was one of the biggest films ever.

Maybe SS is a pedo, but maybe he isn't? Maybe he's damaged, regressed, drawn to children to mentally return to a safe place (if he was abused himself) and inadvertently surrounds himself with pedos who use him as a vessel to meet children?

lutefisk said...

I don't understand how Steven Spielberg became the number one guess for a pedo director. Who has any type of proof?

tetsujin said...

No one ever mentions John Hughes for these molester blinds, who mostly made movies with teen actors, but always mentions Spielberg, who has relatively few movies featuring teens (as a director). Why the fixation on him?

L&A4BD said...

Hi there everyone. First time poster, been lurkin' awhile. Interview With The Vampire is a Geffen Productions flick. Js

Doug said...

I interpret the blind to mean that the former child actress was in one of the biggest movies of all time (#1) and then, at about age 13, acted in a movie (#2) directed by a permanent A+ lister who molested her. The blind does not tell us who directed film #1. It does not tell us how old she was when film #1 was made. Her "boss" on film #2 who "wanted to go over a few lines with her" would be the director. The blind does not tell us how film #2 did; it might not have been a hit at all. It was being made around 1998, and the actress was born in the mid-1980s. She got married within the last couple of years. And she never talks about film #2. Regarding film #1, I would think that the list of "biggest movies of all time" is fairly short.

Life Lover said...

Please stop saying Knightly. It makes no sense.

Snappy Dragon said...

How about Camilla Belle? She was in the beginning of Jurassic Park 2 in 1997 then in The Patriot with Steven Seagal in 1998. Maybe the the boss is Seagal because he is listed as a producer as well as a star.

Anonymous said...

Titanic/James Cameron. The crying girl that Cal uses to get on the lifeboat.

Anonymous said...

Nevermind. Too young for "barely a teen."

Snappy Dragon said...

She was born in ‘86 so that would have made her 12ish during that time.

Hollywood Outcast said...

To some of the comments here:

Yes, SS doesn't fit this blind, although it feels like his M.O.

Why people come up with SS here? This is not a new phenomenon. There has been smoke circling him for decades on the subject.

Earlier, a brilliant point was made regarding this blind...that the abuse didn't necessarily happen on "one of the biggest movies of all time," but that the child actress had appeared in it.

The Geffen guesses are wrong. He is strictly young men and boys.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Does anyone have that imdb link to the list of child predators? it’s not coming up in the google search.

I said...

Tina Majorino was in Waterworld when she was 10. I remember reading that it was one of the biggest (in terms of budget) movies ever filmed, perhaps the biggest at that time. This was 1995, so just 2 years before Cameron made Titanic.

IMDB says she made a TV movie of Alice in Wonderland in 1999. It starred at least 1 actor whom could be considered permanent A+ list perhaps, but I'm not good with the grading system tbh.

She was born in February 85, the film released in February 1999, meaning it probably shot during her 13th year. Barely a teenager.

She didn't do anything after that for 5 years, and hasn't been huge since then.

I don't know about her husband situation, and I'm not sure how specific the 2 decades part is, as the present day would be only just 20 years since filming Alice in Wonderland.

Just my $0.02.

Itttt said...

Could really use Himmmm’s insight on this one.

The blind does indeed leave the timeline unclear as all that can really be ascertained is that 20 years after the molestation/rapes of the (at the time) barely teen female by the A+ list “boss”, she still would wake up screaming. The line about doing things she has never done since even with her new husband infers current and either a recent marry or recent remarry, however it could also be interpreted as 2 decades after the assaults. Also, the blind doesn’t state the assaults were during filming of one of the biggest movies of all time, just that the victim was in one of the biggest movies of all time.

If they are one and the same, then Ariana Richards could work. Preproduction/filming I believe began in ‘91 and was delayed due to the hurricane that wrecked a lot of the sets built on location in Kauai and other island locations in Hawaii. She was born 9/11/79 so she would have been 12-13 during filming. Movie drops in summer ‘93 (6/11/93). “In Jurassic Park Ariana Richards played the role of Lex Murphy when she was 12. Her favorite scene was the Kitchen Scene.”. Coincidentally enough, she notably screamed and shook/shivered in various scare scenes in the movie...and looked pretty damn convincing in them in my opinion. JP and in fact all of them have been some of the biggest (grossing) movies of all time.

If Kirsten Dunst/Interview with a Vampire, well she WAS in the Spider-Man trilogy, definitely some of the biggest movie(s) (grossing) of all time.

Itttt said...

Re: Interview with the Vampire. Definitely big budget, big box office adaptation but wouldn’t call it one of the biggest movies of all time. Hell, I would definitely give Jumanji more credit as it was and is VERY popular and was a big hit of the time. Not one of the biggest of all time. BUT, if one separates the “biggest movies of all time” from the movie that she was assaulted on, then Dunst and Spider-Man works extremely well in that regard. Where was Interview filmed - Nawlins, ?

Natalie Portman works better than Kiera Knightley given the marriage comment, but Nat worked on all three of the prequels. Far away locales work very well too. The Professional? PotC?

How much screaming and shaking did any of them have to do besides Dunst in various scenes in Spidey trilogy and getting roasted in Interview? Still like Ariana for this best.

Jennrn81 said...

Forrest Gump was HUGE, but I cannot think of a little girl,
And it wasn't really filmed out of the country, bt I'll throw it out there

The Truth Will Set You Free said...

Not sure if this is applicable b/c Christian Slater wouldn't have been Kirsten's boss in Interview, but Ally Sheedy is one of the woman who has come forward accusing James Franco, and she tweeted during the Golden Globes that both James Franco and Christian Slater shouldn't have been allowed to attend. Article here:

Amused said...

There is an article where Brad Pitt calls Geffen a "good friend," and referenced his visit to the set of Interview with the Vampire. So, Geffen was around, at least sometimes... http://www.nola.com/movies/index.ssf/2011/09/brad_pitt_says_interview_with.html

J F said...

Interesting how in almost 175 posts... the last 145 or so of them have all been about how it can't be SS.

I think... "Thou Protest Too Much!"

It's obviously a director (who is on-sight to tuck her in every night and has the clout to dispatch with her chaperone). That being said... there are only a couple directors that could be considered perm A+ and JP was THE Highest Grossing film EVER when it was made. Titanic then surpassed it

Unknown said...

Idk if I'm buying the Spielberg stuff. As far as I can remember he has never been part of a reveal (please correct me if I'm wrong here) and I have been reading this site since it started. I get the impression he may be part of this newer campaign to make some of these more liberal guys look bad and feed into that whole Trump crowd. I know he has been a popular guess for blinds long before the Trump crowd thing but man have the supposed Spielberg blinds become more frequent lately. I'm not saying it's not possible but with Harvey and Spacey there were at least a ton of open jokes. The only references I can think of are comments recently made by Crispin Glover who is a bit out there himself and has beef with Spielberg already. Other than that it's just all guesses from this site. Everyone else had people making comments and jokes so that it truly was an "open secret". It seems to me this is part of that whole "he's a powerful liberal Jew so he must be a pedo". Again I may be wrong but everyone talks about him so glowingly and all the child actors he worked with always say they love him. Not in a Harvey way either, in a respectful father figure way. I get that it could mean nothing and people have strange relationships with their abusers and there may be intimidation involved but idk if any of this seems to have the ring of truth. I keep an open mind and I admit I really don't want it to be true because he seems like one of the good guys. I understand we never really know people but unlike Geffen and others it just seems like Spielberg would be unlikely. We'll see.

Mag said...

@Unknown - Agree about SS. People have strange relationships with their abusers, but it's rather surprising that with the number of victims attributed to SS in the comments here, ALL of them would still claim they love and respect him. Also, some years ago there was a blind about a 13 yo "wild child" girl who lived with an older actor. The actor got her pregnant and then kicked her out. That girl had some powerful connections, so the actor got blacklisted in revenge, and it took him years to get any acting work again. I remember that Himmmm was 200% certain the abuser was Ryan O'Neal, and the general consensus at the time was the girl was Drew Barrymore and the powerful friend who had O'Neal blacklisted was SS. I may be wrong, but that seems like one of the most famous CDAN BIs ever (later in the comments Himmmm also outed Kirk Douglas for raping Natalie Wood) and is widely quoted in other places. Anyway, regular readers here should remember it. And yet whenever an A+ pedo blind from 2 or 3 decades ago comes up, there are always people guessing that SS abused DB. Go figure.

Cail Corishev said...

There was a 13-year-old actress in Schindler's list, but she was Polish and it was filmed in Poland, so she wouldn't have been "far from home."

Kryptos said...

To be clear, it says the actress was in one of the biggest movies of all time--but not that she necessarily worked with this A+ predator on that same movie.

totaji said...

For the Spielberg Naysayers, the reason he always gets guessed is because he usually fits the blinds. For example, People keep guessing Geffen/ Interview with a vampire here. It hardly fits. Really the only thing I like about it is that it uses the term "Boss". But biggest movie of all time? Plus isn't he into boys? Chris Columbus could work, but is he really an A+ lister? I think most people here are open to anybody but he is one of the few A+ director/producers. Just my 2 cents.

MovieBuff said...

🤪 I rarely make any lists. Thanks for the shout out homie 👌🏽✊🏽

Glue said...

@tetsujin -
Never heard anything negative about John Hughes. The SS guesses are because people in the industry have made underhanded comments about him/children, but no one ever actually speaks about it out in the open.

Listening to actors/actresses who worked with JH (Molly Ringwald, Matthew Broderick, Anthony M Hall, etc) only had wonderful things to say about working with him.

https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2010/03/actors-on-john-hughes-201003>Actors on John Hughes

Oops. I must have had a typo somewhere in there. Here's the link:
Actors on John Hughes

lutefisk said...

Crispen Glover started the Spielberg rumor a few years ago. He was pissed because he was removed from the Back to the Future franchise.
Look at all of the child actors who were in Spielberg films who certainly have a voice in Hollywood. Drew Barrymore, Christian Bale, Henry Thomas, Haley Joel Osment, Dakota Fanning...Not one have ever said anything negative about working with him. Stop trying to make SS as a pediophile happen.

Count Jerkula said...

Which developmentally disabled, list making, CDAN poster, who is somewhere between Y and Z list, was the first 10 year old to ever be charged with molesting priests?

Melvin The Reanimated said...

@totaji....

As writer,producer or director, Chris Columbus's career has included the likes of Gremlins, The Goonies, Home Alone 1 & 2, Mrs Doubtfire, Night at the Museum, Fantastic Four, The Help and the first two Harry Potters. I think that qualifies him as A+

SB said...

As I read through the BI and comments over and over again, there are a few necessary qualifiers that we need to focus on:


1) The girl is either (A) a former child/young-teen actress known for being 'in one of the biggest movies of all time', or (B) a former child actress in a major movie who ALSO had a large role in an A+ director's (or possibly a very involved A+ producer's) movie.
2) The movie was filmed between 1993-2000, most likely around 97-98. The 'two decades' seems rather specific.
3) The girl would have been 13-14 at the time of filming, most likely 13.
4) The girl (at 13) would have to have a large enough speaking role in the movie to necessitate AT LEAST 1-month of on-location filming. I'd assume a lead or supporting lead role, or at least a crucial role.
5) The character has to have well-known scenes that involve 'scream(ing) and shak(ing)'. Most likely a horror movie or a movie with terrifying/intense scenes. There aren't that many 'permanent A+' Directors (or Producers) with movies like that in the 90's.
6) The (now) woman was most likely married in the past year. However, 'New' could mean in the past 5 years, or a 2nd/3rd husband. And I wouldn't rule out fiances (like in KD's case).

I would also think that the actress is not that famous today. The only description is 'former child actress'. If she were still relevant today, ENTY would probably say 'current A/B/C list' or 'still well-known', unless of course ENTY is trying hard to conceal her identity.

I've been searching through former child actresses married in the past year, and looking through A+ directors with movies that fit. I can't find anything yet. My best guess so far is still JP w/ Ariana Richards, but I'm still no convinced. She fits on every level of the blind perfectly, aside from not having a 'new' husband and her many smiling interviews about SS and JP (keep in mind, she is an actress).

Should we stop barking up the Spielberg tree?? I feel like the silence on him from actors/media is deafening. He is apparently the leader of the anti-harasser movement. Has he really never even made so much as an inappropriate comment to an actress? Nobody is that perfect...or maybe he's just the only saint in Hollywood.


HIMMMM, we could really use some help here. One of you 4 (?) must know something. A hint?

HushHush said...

Eliza Dushku just posted that when she was 12, she was molested on the set of True Lies, by Joel Kramer, the stunt coordinator. Not only that, but she broke he ribs on set during a scene with the harrier jet. No wonder she could scream convincingly, she was justifiably scared for her life. Imagine tattling on the guy who secures your harness, 25 stories up?

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Thank GAWD! I love his films.

SB said...

Also, I just have to say that, aside from Enty and HIMMMM, Count Jerkula is my favorite contributor to CDAN.

oimachi said...

Eliza Dushku is also newly engaged. On the other hand, is a stunt coordinator really an A+ lister? Also the story of the abuse is completely different. True Lies was huge at the time, not sure about one of the biggest films of all time.

oimachi said...

ALSO! When Aziz and Dana are on the crane, Dana slips and says "Someone help me" but her lips aren't moving.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

I wonder if this is it? Doesanyoneknow if Joel Kramer is A+ in his field? If he's a top coordinator than yes,he would get that listing for stunt work. But could James Cameron also have done stuff? And because of his power, she's too scared to say his name and his giving up a less powerful molester?

PG Tips said...

Oimachi - That's a good find and a good possibility- I did not even think of the title and was looking at the rest of the blind for word clues. James Cameron is an A list, it it possible she has not mentioned this particular abuse.

SB said...

Re: Eliza Dushku

She's not married (as far as I can tell), but Google says that she was got engaged in June 2017.

True Lies was filmed in LA and Florida. A lot of the big scenes (including that crane rescue scene) were filmed in Florida. She lived in Massachusetts at the time, a 'long way' from her home.

Also, she turned 13 in Dec 1993. True Lies filmed from August 1993 to March 1994.

Since the story of her rape seems to have just been made public last night, this seems to be a VERY strong candidate. If this is correct, then either:
A) James Cameron also raped her, but she can't say that publicly.
B) ENTY got bad information, and was told that one of her bosses raped her for a month during the filming of True Lies, and ENTY incorrectly assumed it was James Cameron.

Count Jerkula said...

Thanks, sb

SB said...

Also, Eliza reportedly started abusing drugs/alcohol from the age of 14. Seems as if she could have been trying to bury something. The story of her assault (not nearly as bad as the BI seems to describe) doesn't match the BI, so it is possible there is much more to her story that she can't/won't say. I'm not saying that there is, and I feel very sorry for her terrible experiences as a child, but it's possible.

overit122 said...

TMZ confirmed this is Eliza

SB said...

@overit122: TMZ didn't confirm anything, other than the fact that Eliza Dushku announced on social media that she was assaulted. And if TMZ is your go-to for reputable information (over the dozens of other media outlets who have reported on this today), then you have issues.

Did TMZ say they spoke with Enty to confirm this? No.
And lease stop going on other threads and saying that this BI has been solved by TMZ. What you're saying there and here is annoying and incorrect. Almost looks like you're trying to protect the A+ lister.

Either Enty got information wrong, Eliza is leaving out info on a much bigger predator, or this BI isn't Eliza Dushku.

Cail Corishev said...

All I remember about True Lies is a weird strip-tease/dance by Jamie Lee Curtis, and the rest being entirely forgettable. It was the third-best grossing movie of 1994, though, and won some awards. Whether that makes it "one of the biggest movies of all time" is doubtful to me, but it was bigger than I remembered. One of the biggest 500, maybe. Doesn't look like Dushku was in anything else bigger.

Revival said...

Linda Blair William Friedkin fit a lot of this

Blair was 13 when Exorcist was made
It is one of the biggest movies of all time
She did scream and shake in it
Friedkin has said he cast Blair in the role after asking her if she masturbates. It was in the film, but seems an odd thing to be discussing with a 12-year-old.
There are rumors Blair recently got married
I don't believe she has participated in any of the William Friedkin honors ceremonies

But . . . she has occasionally talked about the movie in interviews
The movie was not two decades ago (though you could read the blind to mean that the nightmares were two decades after the film, but that they are not necessarily happening today).

Revival said...

Oh yes, also the words "Help me" appear on Linda Blair's skin in the film as well as the title of this post.

Orflyakite said...

Going by sm it looks like she was assaulted by the stunt coordinator

totaji said...

Oh I know his work. And I won’t be surprised if it’s him, as well as Dante or Donner. Both fit a lot of these Blinds. My only problem is he could walk into any restaurant in America, give his name, and nobody would recognize him or give him special treatment. Spielberg, Scorsese, Lucas, etc would be hounded. They are A+ or higher. Maybe I’m off.

totaji said...

Thanks. Although there are some similarities, these stories are plain different. Unless of course enty is changing his stories enough to keep them low key. If it is about her the reveal should be soon.

Revival said...

Interesting interview about William Friedkin
