Blind Item #5

This A+ list mostly movie actress says she took a beta blocker and a Xanax or two prior to a big event last night which is why she seemed out of it.

Jlaw/The Bafya’s

*BAFTA’s-she as so rude to Joanne Lumley

T. W. said...

She could have killed herself. I hope she has a legitimate need for the beta blocker.

Karen D.C. said...

Where’s the blind about what Fergie was on yesterday?

Ice Angel said...

@Karen-apparently Fergie has been taking lessons from Miranda Sings

@Tricia13

I always think of you being more of the subject matter expert on this site. So when you name names, I usually don't balk. But I just can't see anywhere that she is what she's painted out to be on this site.

*Jennifer Lawrence

Gator said...

A beta blocker? She has hypertension, or did she just google the term and thought it sounded cool?

Guesser said...

If JLaw is this answer to this and the earlier blind about lingering effects from a coke binge,she is in serious trouble.

Rikki Bobbi said...

@Gator, docs prescribe them for anxiety too....fwiw

Vessimede Barstool said...

What's a girl gonna do after having coke blown up your ass for a week with an award ceremony to attend? Beta blockers and Xanax? OD is coming.

Your vs. You're said...

Exactly! My thinking, too, @Guesser.

With the blinds that others have been associating Jennifer Lawrence with in the last few weeks with, I would expect to see photos of her showing her looking like she's crawling out of a trash dumpster. Nobody can do that amount of coke and still look as good as she does in public like she has been. Her life would be in total shambles as well. I just don't see it, and I know what it looks like when I see it.

What's with JLaw's cardboard(?) front to her dress?

Asking for a friend...

Guesser said...

@Your vs You're, they seem to also be making a huge of her BAFTA comment, I don't think she was throwing shade,I think she was embarrassed by the intro. It seemed like she was trying for deadpan humor and failed. Either she is in danger from her drug abuse, or people in the industry are doing a number on her.

Truthseeker said...

Is anyone even going to watch this latest so called big movie of hers? I ask because I cant stomach watching her in anything, but have seen the commercials and her accent is almost as bad in the quick take, as Fergie's National Anthem.
I want someone to go see it and tell me if it is just as bad as I hear it.. lol.

Red Sparrow is going to flop, she knows it is.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Speaking from personal experience (due to taking no-doz and drinking coffee years ago) It’s probably for heart palpitations emerging from her coke binge.

People who have drug problems and money can look very good for a long time before anybody notices.

To be different -Frances McDormand

Count Jerkula said...

She needs the beta blocker cause she has acute angina. Only alphas should enter it and her lovely anus.

Boldblonde said...

Exactly @Unknown

Han Niam said...

Gotta be JLaw. She was so out of it I didn’t even recognize her pictures until I read the caption. That was shocking.

And, uh, is it just me or is “a Xanax” generally really not enough to do anything like that to most people? Beta blocker or not. It’s my understanding that you would need to eat them like tic tacs for that effect.

Han Niam said...

@My.answer Ugh. Thanks for the college finals flashback. That single coffee & no doz heart palpitations experience left me seriously questioning people who do coke ever since.

Han Niam: friends and i were drinking at a bar, someone showed up w/ xanax. We all took one. None of us remember driving back to a buddy's house and continuing to drink there. Took us a cigarette's time the next morning to piece together that it was my vomit on his deck.

Alcohol makes pills work better, though it is best to take the pills then start drinking.

Han Niam said...

@Count Never had that experience with my prescription, but that could be because I hate going places where lots of intoxicated people congregate, (having anxiety, y’know) so I haven’t been “out drinking” since the last time well-meaning friends literally dragged me along in the 90s.

But that’s a heck of a cautionary tale. Thanks for the informed answer.

Lyla said...

Xanax was definitely culprit. Beta blockers are very commonly prescribed & are pretty harmless. They don't lower blood pressure. They prevent you from having racing pulse or chest flutters that come from being nervous or too hyped up. Rock stars take them like tic tacs during performances.

@Truthseeker
I really enjoyed the books and will be taking a hard pass on the movie. I really want Joel Edgerton to break through but since I can't even make it through the previews, I know I will hate the movie experience.

T. W. said...

@Gator, I was given beta blockers when my heart was racing out of rhythm (I forget the medical term). As someone else pointed out, she may be taking them because she messed her heart up from overdosing (assuming the coke blind is about her).

bianca said...

I think it's called an arrhythmia, but beta-blockers are also useful for treating anxiety attacks in real time.

a beautiful virago named hope said...

Xanax can definitely mess you up. My mom took two at my wedding and went missing for two hours before the ceremony.

Bitca said...

Have seen anecdotes like this elsewhere. Some people seem to be hyper-sensitive to GABA-receptor meds like Xanax, valium, etc.

Your mom's Dr--like many others--may have over-prescribed that initial dose. For a first try, mine suggested a maximum of one-two .25mg tablets (not sufficient for my air travel phobia, but glad she was conservative). That ought to be safe, even if mixed with an unadvised alcoholic drink.

If enough people have such frightening responses to benzodiazepines, physicians need to stop going, "okay; so you're not an Addictive Personality? Here!" Because there are clearly a whole lotta other factors to consider.

Aoife said...

I saw a trailer for her new movie. I don't know why folks think she looks good. She looks bloated in the trailer.

Sydney Gingell said...

Some people are prescribed beta blockers for anxiety.

americanpanda said...

i'm on beta blockers for palpitations due to anxiety, beta blockers do NOT cause you to act funny. Chill on the benzo's dude.

T. W. said...

@Sydney Gingell - no doctor in their right mind would prescribe two anti-anxiety meds for a patient to take at the same time. Also, JLaw could have a heart condition. If her meds were legitimately prescribed then either her doctor is incompetent or different doctors prescribed different meds without knowing her full medical history. At best she forgot to say something and ask about drug interactions. At worst she was dictor shopping or got the xanax illegally.

T. W. said...

@Lyla - I almost had a heart attack AFTER the ER doctors gave them to me. That is not pretty harmless.
