Blind Item #8 - The Whole Story

Back in the day, this actress was in some of my favorite movies. Now, she actually is being recognized for her talents and has been picking up Emmy nominations/wins right and left. She put in jail an ex back when they split. The thing is, he begged her to not tell everything in her complaint and she agreed. There was a lot more than a beating or two. He constantly abused her and demeaned her and assaulted her. She stuck with it for far too long and wishes now she would have said it all back then because of the way he treated subsequent girlfriends. He bought their silence after the fact but if she had gone public they might not have had to go through what they suffered through. She says he would cheat and then come see her and tell her how good the other woman was in bed. This actor is probably A-/B+ list. That face you know, but never know his name. He has had his own show. She says he used to go visit the sets of rap videos and use his star power from a movie he starred in that had some black star power to talk to some of the background women. He would find a woman and pay her to have sex and yell racist things at her the whole time they were having sex. He would then come and tell our actress what he did and be so proud of it and make her feel bad for not being there for him like she should be.

whoever it deserves to be castrated. Like many others.

Krab said...

What is wrong with these women? If my BF called me to tell me he picked up some woman so he could yell racist things at them during sex and then try to make me feel bad I wasn't there for him---hahahahaha, I'd've laughed my ass off.

Gain some self respect.

EddyWouldRide said...

This should be pretty easy to verify before you guess- a non black actor who was in a movie with black star power, jail for spousal abuse, on a TV show.

Sal Salington said...

He had a show, but no one ever knows his name. Probably not Billy Bob, everyone knows his name.

Sd Auntie said...

Billy Bob is a freak with a devilish face. That guy is one scary MF. Kind of inbred lookin.he is on his 5th wife I think

Amartel said...

Penn is permanent A+? In his dreams.

Brayson87 said...

Laura Dern and Billy Bob split doesn't match the blind either, she was away and then he was gone with you know who.

Do Tell said...

He's a double Oscar winner and is constantly in the news, (for better or worse) so yes, he is permanent A+ list.

Amartel said...

Whoever this is is terribly needy and fragile. Wouldn't take much to beat his sad little ego down.

ancoranonhocapito said...

Does everybody know Christian Slater? He was in jail for beating his girlfriend and had his almost tv show with mr. robot.

ancoranonhocapito said...

* I meant "almost own"

Do Tell said...

Yeah, but who would his Emmy nommed ex be?

Unknown said...

Diane Lane and Josh Brolin. He had a tv show early on for a few years and she had him arrested for domestic battery then did not press charges.

Eyre Affair said...

I would guess Diane Lane and that Brolin boy, who at one time had his own TV series, Private Eye.

Chris22 said...

Julianna Margulies
Ron Eldard
movie: Freedomland?

Newbomb said...

Josh Brolin in American Gangster.

pricksongs said...

maybe a longshot- but i can't help but think this is Elisabeth Moss/Fred Armisen

Penelope said...

Re: Sean Penn

If two Best Actor Oscars plus being in the news on a regular basis isn't permanent A List I don't know what is. But this isn't Sean Penn.

What actress has been picking up a slew of Emmy noms?? I'm stuck.

Unknown said...

And he was in American Gangster with Denzell.

sandybrook said...

Vincent Spano and Laura Dern?

Annyoung Bluth said...

It’s kind of scary how many could fit here. Why are there so many talented women who used to be married to scumbags?

I think it could be Reese/Ryan. He was in Crash, he has a show, recent DV accusations, it’s a stretch to say no one knows his name but he’s not exactly a household name anymore. And Reese Witherspoon clearly hates his guts.

plot said...

Trying to make Matthew Fox work. He fits many aspects of this BI except he is still married to the same and only woman for years now.

Would no one recognize Brolin's name? He has been the lead in TV shows, but isn't he well known for his movies? He was nominated for an AA at least once.

SDaly said...

@pricksongs - I think you got it.

spacecowboy78 said...

Michael Rapaport and Lili Taylor.

Temi said...

Fred Armisen/Elizabeth Moss - he starred in Like Mike

Temi said...

Fred Armisen/Elizabeth Moss - he starred in Like Mike

Annyoung Bluth said...

@prick I had thought that too but couldn’t figure out back in the day movies she was in.

Reese has cult classic Election. Robin Wright has a ton. Laura Dern has several.

Drama said...

Except Elizabeth Moss didn't do movies "back in the day" at all. It's probably an older actress.

Tallulah said...

Moss and Armisen was my first thought. She’s getting recognition for The Handmaid’s Tale, the descriptors could apply to him, and there’s been talk of him being just the worst.

pricksongs said...

Elisabeth Moss DID do movies back in the day, she's been acting since the 90. didn't have any major roles though, which could kill my guess

Hmax17 said...

Love the idea but has he been to jail for abuse?

Her said...

the only actress that fits this blind with the Awards She's winning now is Reese Witherspoon.

Don Kieballs said...

Nobody has guessed Michael Rappaport... Maybe because it's a bad guess, but it's the name that popped to mind reading the blind.

spacecowboy78 said...

@Don, I guessed him 10 minutes ago.

SkittleKitty said...

Thought maybe Winona due to the movies, but don't know of a relationship that fits.

Don Kieballs said...

@spacecowboy - oops. I see that now. I promise I looked through the comments. I'm the pompatus of duh

Barbara RiceHand said...

Like what does he yell? I’m having a hard time believing this.. does he pick up Jewish girls, black girls... what?

Newbomb said...

Reese fits but I don't think Ryan fits the actor.

bianca said...

No, Michael Rappaport was the first to occur to me! His breakout films were Zebrahead and Higher Learning, plus he has a reputation as an "honorary b-boy." His ex is probably Lili Taylor, who accused him of stalking and abusing her, and apparently was recently Emmy-nominated for the network series American Crime (not American Crime Story).

MeliticusBee said...

It’s diane lane and josh brolin. You know his face but don’t know his name because father James Brolin has better NAME recognition, no matter how much work Josh has done, james has bigger name.
His “own show” was one season Mister Sterling in 2003, he played lead.

Glue said...

Take your pick of women beaters....

Rappaport
Penn
Brolin
Slater
Oldman
Sheen
Depp
Cage
Baldwin
Gibson
the list goes on and on..../shakes head in disgust/

totaji said...

She’d kick his ass. Are you kidding me?

Newbomb said...

I don't think Diane Lane is getting the Emmy nods left and right. Rappaport is out of his mind, he had a few TV shows and starred in a John Singleton movie.

totaji said...

Weird, mine as well, I just couldn’t make the girl work.

Do Tell said...

Ryan P could fit if you consider that he was arrested in the last few years for domestic assault. I'm wondering if he was arrested/jailed at the end of his marriage to Reese and it was kept from the press.

More Cowbell said...

Agree with Michael Rapaport/Lily Taylor. He had his own TV show, was in HIGHER LEARNING which had star black power, and isn't that well known a name. Lily was in a couple great movies back in the day and is now getting attention for TV.

alicecorrine said...

Winona Ryder? Everyone liked Heathers...

Newbomb said...

This guy seems to have to work hard at getting laid. That screams Rapaport over Phillipe.

Leanne Hill said...

Reese and Ryan Phillipe? He has his own show, Shooter.... The black star power movie could be Crash

Brayson87 said...

Lili Taylor was in Mystic Pizza, Rudy, Say Anything, etc seems like Enty's cup of tea. And Rapaport has the rep.

pricksongs said...

i guess Rappaport/Taylor makes sense but I just can't see him as ANYTHING higher than B-list, TOPS.

Sara, Making It Work said...

ABSOLUTELY Michael Rappaport & Lili Taylor
No doubt.

Drama said...

I do wish people would stop saying IT IS ABSOLUTELY in all caps when we're all guessing... doesn't hurt to be polite and accommodating of others' guesses.

Rusty Jones said...

http://www.eonline.com/news/36433/michael-rapaport-sentenced-for-harassment

I vote for Rappaport, guy is a closet case.

Ellie said...

I'd say it's Michael Rapaport and Lili Taylor also, though I'm not sure he actually served jail time for the harassment charges. He did direct a video about a rap act and i think maybe a couple of his movies had black star power? He seems misogynistic (attacked the lawyer Lisa Bloom via a blog post for defending Blac Chyna) and racist (attacked Aziz Ansari for being a "politically correct F***"). I could see it being him.

Ellie said...

I'm changing my mind, guessing instead it's Tom Sizemore and Juliette Lewis.

Don Kieballs said...

Dean Rapaport, Michael's mysterious son that always defends him on twitter.
He doesn't have a son named Dean, but don't let that distract you or make you think MR made an account to defend his main account and talks back and forth to.

NO celebs have alt accounts and none have ever accidentally forgot to log out of their alt account before making a post intended from their main. That is unimaginable and ridiculous I would even make such a claim.

Enny said...

Rappaport was also in multiple Spike Lee movies iirc. Do the Right Thing, I believe, among a few others? So that would probably give him a leg up, so to speak, on the set of rap videos...

Court b said...

New Heather's show coming out soon, cringe

Court b said...

Rappaport has a huge part in rap/hip hop music history. He knew EVERYBODY! Still does. Doesn't mean this blind is about him though. He was there the day Snoop and Tupac first met. Has amazing stories you can find on YouTube, etc.

interestingconsequences said...

Seems that even Hollywood actresses with seemingly everything are also attracted to the bad boys? Evolution huh!?

rosie riveter said...

Enty was right, i had his face figured out but not the name. Rappaport is a great guess

Temi said...

still on Armisen/Moss

Rappaport is STILL on TV - Atypical, a Netflix series.

Moss was in Mumford, Anywhere but Here, Girl, Interrupted and The Missing

Anne T. said...

Sean Penn. he is a double Oscar winner. Ex wife would be Robin Wright.

La-Juice said...

@pricksongs is right- this is Fred Armisen and Elizabeth Moss.

Kate K said...

+1

pwal said...

She was in Girl, Interrupted.

Skibunny said...

She dated Christian Slater. Heard rumblings back in the day. Not sure the other clues fit though.

lucy said...

can't be Billy Bob he only eats orange

pwal said...

Very likely. A quick Google search revealed a recent podcast where he stated that he wanted to ' grab, fcuk and kill her'.

I had no idea those two were a thing. Post-Pitt and it was a drug-fueled mess.

Rock The Catwalk said...

Help me understand why women are attracted to, date, and stay with these guys? Why don't they date a nice attorney, their accountant, maybe their local pharmacist?

pillsberry said...

I like the Laura Dern/Vincent Spano guess.
"That face" is right! I knew his face as soon as I Googled him but not his name. He doesn't have a lot of info to find, or at least I haven't found it yet. Interesting about him is that he has a son with Natassja Kinski. I'm not sure if he has a relationship with the son as his info lists Ibarhim Moussa as a father as well. If Natassja Kinski doesn't stand out to you, she had a relationship with Roman Polanski when she was 15 years old. In reading her Wiki page, I now know there's been a blind here about her. I'm going to try to find it.

The only movie with black star power that I see is City of Hope in 1991 which, fits the timeline of him dating Laura Dern in 1992 and still coasting off of that film. This was an interesting dig even if it turns out not to be correct.

pillsberry said...

Also, just my 2 cents, but I feel like Ryan Philippe, Christian Slater and Billy Bob Thornton are definitely names that are well known. There are a couple of others listed here that I haven't looked up yet.

MovieBuff said...

I’m going with Lili Taylor and Rapaport. He’s the only white guy with an in to black America and a Google search pins him for the arrest on harassment. Lili Taylor is in those American drama series now but was an indie queen back in the day. Girls Town is one of my faves.

Also I think there was a blind here about Rapaport saying what a huge dbag he is and I think he tried talking smack to Patricia Arquette and she burned him. I think Himmm came into the comments on that one. I think.

So yeah I’m hanging my hat on Lili for the actress and Michael for the punk actor with face recognition but name elusiveness.

SugarCoatedBitch said...

Agree 100%

ihsahn77 said...

Doesn't people read the blinds before guessing? Christian Slater, Billy Bob Thornton, Sean Penn...sure, people only know their faces but not their names.

Wo said...

@DonKieballs Hilarious

Nat CDV said...

She was in Girl Interrupted

Count Jerkula said...

If they took money for the sex, they probably also negotiated the things he would say, and if not, they were whores, so who cares? Racism is only hate among humans and since whores don't have souls, they aint human.

atd8vii said...

I'm on board with Lily Taylor and Michael Rapaport. 'The War At Hom'e being the show that he was in and not to mention the several rap videos he's been in over the years.

It's ironic that I had actually heard his name pop over the years but I pictured him being someone else, as opposed to recognizing his face and not his name.
