Blind Item #3

This former A list mostly movie actor who has always been a pain and never nice to any fan who wasn't a young female interested in him is about to have several women come forward. Apparently on the set of a movie in which he starred and won an Oscar, there are a handful of then teenage girls who say he was always touching them and groping them and making comments about how tight they were. The teens did not complain to anyone because a different teen had been fired from the movie for complaining when the actor tried to kiss her.

Adrien Brody?

Boldblonde said...

He's never been nice to a fan? Wow!!

MeMyselfandIandYou said...

Were there young teenage girls in that piano movie though?

Tricia13 said...

Not sure ? Been a long time since I saw it...

Boldblonde said...

No young girls in the Pianist from what I could remember . I've seen it multiple times.

JezebelinHell said...

It was a Roman Polanski film so...

Boldblonde said...

There were a lot of extras though. So there's a possibility...

filmfanb said...

casey affleck?

DW said...

Richard Dreyfuss during the filming of Mr. Hollands Opus.

Cobblepot said...

It isn't Adrien Brody. Are we just throwing out random names now till they stick? The blind suggests it wouldn't be Casey Affleck, either. The Dreyfus guess is the only logical one thus far.

Mike said...

Richard Dreyfuss didn't win an Oscar for Mr. Holland's Opus.

filmfanb said...

leto on dallas buyers?

JWill said...

Jared Leto? He's known for being a jerk to fans.

Cobblepot said...

Leto isn't former A list. Casey Affleck won his Oscar working on a movie so recent that ant teen co-stars are most likely still teens, not "then teenage girls." And literally NOTHING about Adrien Brody as a pick makes sense other than perhaps you personally don't like him.

joshg g said...

Dreyfuss won for Goodbye Girl. Is Hoffman still A list?

Cobblepot said...

I still like the Dreyfuss pick. Hoffman is probably permanent A list.

trish m said...

Michael Caine? Cider House Rules would probably have young girls on set. And we know he likes them!

Yeah trish m, I didn't want to guess because there's so many options, but that's where I was leaning. After that Blame it On Rio blind who knows.

Dorvannnn said...

Since it specifies teenage girls, I think that rules out Kevin Spacey for American Beauty.

Dustin Hoffman won an Oscar for Rain Man and Kramer vs. Kramer. I'm not sure its him though.


pwal said...

Warren Beatty?

Don Kieballs said...

Richard Dreyfuss is in the groping news today, so I'm sticking with that guess

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Yeeeeaaahhh, after reading this, I'm going with Richard Dreyfus.

Jeff Gee said...

I'm going with Sean Penn on "Mystic River" (2003). Def. fits the "always a pain" and the "never nice to fans except..." But is he "Former A List"?

Neil said...

@Brayson, would you kindly provide a link to the Blame it on Rio blind? I've searched for it several times without success.....thank you!

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Another thought: Alan Arkin, Little Miss Sunshine (though I still think Dreyfus is more likely.)

trish m said...

Brayson87 yup, that movie was just vile

e! said...

I would guess Sean Penn in Mystic River. There were some teenage girls in it as he played a man who lost his teen daughter.

Saintpat said...

@Melvin The Reanimated - basically a pedo-is-funny themed movie so yeah I could see that

DDonna Tarttty said...

Bet it's Richard Dreyfuss, from second hand personal knowledge. Can't say how I know without possibly outing myself, so take that as you will.

The only doubt is about it happening ON the set of his Oscar-winning role, which was Duddy Kravitz. Could it be for an Oscar NOMINATED role and the blind is mistaken?

Has anybody ever noticed how "Mr. Holland's Opus" unfolds in 7 year intervals until it jumps to a 14 year interval? Was there another segment that was entirely cut from the film? If so, why?

Cail Corishev said...

@ Neil, here's the Blame It on Rio blind that was mentioned.

rosie riveter said...

Whomever it is: Yay!!!!

petty white said...

what about stallone? "rocky" = "pain?"

Rikki Bobbi said...

Russell Crowe (Gladiator)?

The Woodman said...


+1 Cobblepot

Caine or Dreyfuss ... The "Blame it on Rio" blind gives me pause on Dreyfuss ... then again, see below about beig in "pain"...

"[a]s Dreyfuss himself explains in the pages of Moments of Clarity, a new book about prominent people escaping addiction by Christopher Kennedy Lawford.... Like others in the book, Dreyfuss writes in first person about his experiences. By the time of the crash, he says, he had become "a board member and probably chairman of admissions for the Assholes Center". The humiliation was crushing, but within days he was back to his old tricks, drinking and attending cocaine-fuelled sex orgies.

Yet everywhere he went, he was accompanied by a vision of a little girl in a pink dress and horn-rimmed glasses. She was even there at one of the orgies and it was on that day that the actor was overcome with revulsion with himself. "I knew that little girl was either the little girl that I didn't kill that night I completely lost control of my car, or she was the girl, the daughter I hadn't had yet. I knew that as a certain fact." He then reveals: "I sobered up on November 19, 1982. My daughter was born November 19, 1983. My daughter wears horn-rimmed glasses."

In those pages, Dreyfuss speaks also of being 16 different personalities in one man and the search for the chemical formula he takes today, legally prescribed for his condition.

"Pain"? You decide.

Cuba Gooding Jr. is a dick.There had to be a lot of girls in Jerry Maguire.

There were no teenaged girls in Jerry Maguire

trufflepig said...

'former A list', Oscar winner and 'always a pain' make me think of either Sean Penn or Russel Crowe. I haven't seen their Oscar movies, but the wikipedia article about 'Mystic River' (Oscar for Penn) sounds as if there might have been teen girls in it. So I'm going with Penn.

Jen Ty said...

I saw Dreyfuss making a speech at a fundraiser for a mental health foundation just a few years ago- he said he was diagnosed as bi-polar but not until his 30s. He felt he had been in the manic phase until the depression hit him in this 30s.

Amanda said...

Russell Crowe? Were there young girls in Gladiator?

T. W. said...

I do not recall teenaged girls being in Mystic River.

Sand1 said...

Penn mystic river for sure.

Amanda said...

I don't think Penn is described as former A list on here.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Cider House Rules was set at a boys orphanage. So it can't be Michael Caine *for that one*.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Didn't say he won the Oscar for acting.

How about Billy Bob Thornton for Sling Blade. He starred and won for writing. There were teen girl extras, I'm pretty sure.

Kno Won Uno said...

Yes.

Kno Won Uno said...

Permanent A list.

Kay said...

Gotta be Sean Penn for Mystic River.

The movie was about the murder of a teen girl, so there was a "handful of teen girls" in the movie.

Why shade at Michael Caine? I don’t get it. He is a class act. I knew him growing up, was friends with his daughter. He was always very appropriate, respectful and kind. His wife is absolutely stunning and so classy and kind, as well. Their daughter was and is a sweetheart. There was never an ill word spoken about any of them. They are very gracious, polite, humble and dignified people.

Travelgrrl said...

In both the book and the movie Cider House Rules, there was a dormitory of boys, AND a dormitory of girls.

LizzieDJ said...

Al Pacino, Scent of a Woman?
Haven’t heard he’s a jerk to fans tho...

LadySabreX said...

James Franco?

Clarisse McClellan said...

Not Dreyfus. He won for The Goodbye Girl, which had a 10yo girl in it, but not throngs of teen girls.

And I cannot speak about his groping news, but for what it's worth, he likes his fans. A male coworker of mine was at a SAG event a few years ago, and Dreyfuss signed a bunch of stuff for him and some JAWS fans.

This is Caine, who won for Cider House Rules. He played an orphanage director who gave young women illegal abortions. There were lots of young girls/women in that one.
