Blind Item #12

This foreign born A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner says that when she landed her first few decent roles she had to sleep with the directors to get the parts. She says she would still do it now if it got her the role she wanted. She says it is the reason she got two big roles last year that were supposed to go to actresses much younger than her.

Uh Lurky did you change your name?😣

TLT said...

As much as I love Cate, I really didn't buy her as Hela in the new Thor.

joshg g said...

What??!! She was great!

FrenchGirl said...

My guess

ckpsjp said...

Kate Winslet? Maybe she was being facetious since she was married to Sam Mendes, who directed her in Revolutionary Road.

PotPourri said...

Charlize would have to sleep with someone...Cate and Kate would not.

TravelingMama said...

My moula is on Charlize!

laura ramona said...

Charlize role was age appropriate. JLaw

laura ramona said...

J Law switches directors

Kentucky isn't considered foreign, though sometimes it should be.

Are the casting couch participants expected to act like they like it?
Can they just lay there and wait for it to be over?

Marion Cottilard

texasrose said...

Sharper Teeth - in this case it sounds like she is using it to get parts so she probably would put on a show.

Amartel said...

Says she didn't mind and would do it again but when no one wants to sleep with her anymore she'll claim she was sexually harassed.

Dame Maggie Smith FTW

No Sandy. It is just that great minds think alike

Gwyneth Paltrow

Foreign Born Oscar Winners I didn't see mentioned here: Penelope Cruz and Rachel Weisz (both Supporting)--are they A list? Pretty close, if not.

Feel like Charlize's recent roles have been kickass and there's a limited amount of actresses who can do that credibly. Kate Winslet made a movie with Woody Allen, does that mean anything, maybe?

Charlize was famous in Italy before making it in Hollywood for commercials. There was one where she was out drinking martini in a knit dress and a thread got stuck in the chair as she is walking away and the dress unravels.

In italy, at least at that time, you definitely wouldnt get those kind of gigs without sleeping with someone. She also did a lot of gratuitous nude scenes in her early movies, so I can totally see this being her, she doesnt seem to have many hang ups with her body.

MeliticusBee said...

Charlize is credited as producer for everything in last 2 years so, unless she slept with herself...this isn’t her.
Not saying she didn’t couch a lot in beginning...just not this time.

laura ramona said...

Oh f off. Im Italian and she was never famous in Italy

Brayson87 said...

These producers couch but it's the audience who gets f*cked.

laura ramona said...

Stop misleading with Italian quotations when you have no idea

MichiganMama59 said...

It will never stop.

Jlaw

kiki71 said...

Jlaw IS YOUNG herself so what roles did she get that were meant to go to even YOUNGER actresses. Don't buy it. They thought she was too young FOR that movie with Bradley Cooper. This has to be someone older. JLAW may not be averse to the casting couch but don't think her AGE is an issue. her work just might go to OTHER actors.

Robin said...

Sounds like Sienna Miller - but Academy Award winner??? Guffaw!

hothotheat said...

Winslet is too old for Woody. He likes little girls. I think this is Charlize.

Regardless of whether they ageee to it, requiring someone to perform sexual favors for a work is sexual harrasment.

@sharper teeth works for my wife

TLT said...

JLaw, while a total coucher, is not foreign born.

The blind indicates she's a winner not a winner/nominee So it's a foreign born actress who's won each time or the only time she was nominated. That excludes Theron,Mitten, Winslet, Blanchett, and Cruz. It must be Rachel Weiss or Marion Cottilard.

fnchrstphr said...

Mirren.

Orville said...

Could be a number of actresses Halle Berry slept with Spike Lee to get her first big break in Jungle Fever. People will say that Berry and Lee were dating but come on. The interesting thing about this METOO movement is no mainstream media DARES to publish articles about women who DO SLEEP their way to the top! Wonder why? People can argue it is consensual BUT the casting couch is NEVER going to go away. Because there are women in Hollywood who kNOW if they sleep with the director they will get the big film roles. I don't think it is fair how unbalanced it is. These actresses are not defenceless little victims. Even Pam Anderson called out these women in Hollywood for their hypocrisy.

YUCK

beebopcowboy said...

CJ said...

Sharper Teeth, of course they’re expected to act as if they like it. They’re actresses.

@laura Ramone so am i I was here at the time and she was super famous for that commercial , no need to be so vulgar and curse just cause you are ignorant you sound like a tamarra who thinks she is a princess

http://www.tgcom24.mediaset.it/televisione/charlize-theron-e-quell-indimenticabile-spot-martini-anni-90_3124992-201802a.shtml

In Italy, It is one of the most famous commercials of all time, and definitely the 90s

boredatwork boredatwork said...

I lived in Italy in the 90s and I never of her before she did that movie with Al Pacino

FrenchGirl said...

Mirren because she fits and she just won a prize yesterday about her whole career

laura ramona said...

Thanks..

DDonna Tarttty said...

Looks like that CT ad in Italy is from 1993, before her first credited film role.

CT was also the face of Dior, which carries all kind of occult "white goddess" symbolism. There's tons of weird stuff going on with the women they choose, the commercials they shoot, etc.

Newbomb said...

I would have a threesome with Betty Thomas and Laverne Defazio for a good role.

Liz Pop said...

Penelope Cruz?

Camal19 said...

Charlize Theron

Atomic Blonde and Fate of the Furious.

If you got pussy and don't use it to your advantage, then you are underutilizing assets.

Guys, it's gotta be Nicole Kidman. She's over 50 and is ALWAYS working.
