lovely- sarah jessicap parker? (lovely perfume)

but im thinking more like cameron diaz or sharlett johansson

Anonymous said...

it's not scarlett her career isn't what you would call fledgling, she has two movies coming out this year, and is about to star in two more. plus she has a bunch of prodjects lined up for the future.

what about that chick from high school musical? her career could be called fledgling.

Renee Z (a la Down With Love)? I mean, c'mon, did you see how shitty she looked last week?!

Elisha Cuthbert?

brum said...

fledgling means new and untried or inexperienced: so no not renee.

what about hayden p or who was the girl advertising the vodka in a recent post, anna?

Anonymous said...

Ahhh, good call - I read it too fast. Well then, Renee just looks likes poo I guess.

Hayden actually has been at it for awhile, but she is pretty darn young... And what's the "It's not just her friends who are worried" supposed to mean? Her manager? Mom? Entertainment Lawyer, perhaps? Why is that relevant? Just curious.

AIIIGHHH -- sometimes I just cringe at the ridiculous guesses ...

LOOK UP THE WORDS if you don't understand them.

Sarah Jessica Parker?? Cameron Diaz??? Scarlett?? "inexperienced" "just starting out" -- in WHAT FREAKIN UNIVERSE?????

Hayden P is a MUCH better guess. I don't agree about the High School Musical girl -- if people don't even know your NAME yet, they ain't "gossiping" about you.

Anonymous said...

I don't think Hayden P's career is floundering just yet. Elisha Cuthbert seems like a better guess, what's she done lately?

Jessica Simpson? She seems to have lost some weight since her breakup with John Mayer.

kirsten dunst?

If I hear one more guess about those fuckin nobodys from High School musical i will puke,there is no BI about those kids cuz no one cares but you...

brum said...

Ent says "attracting more attention" which seems to suggest people have known of her dabbling but it may have become more noticeable.

Agree on the "her friends" comment - would this suggest a group of people who hang together socially or work together on a show?

Too many young blondes around for me to think clearly and isnt Elisha in Captivity which is causing a bit of stir?

Anonymous said...

No one said her career was floundering ... the BI says she's getting more attention for her drug use than her "fledgling career".

Don't think Simpson or Dunst are "fledglings" either.

Newbie, newbie, newbie -- pretty -- coke head. Can we just throw a dart at any hollywood party? Sheesh.

Did you see how skinny Jessica Simpson is lately?

Anonymous said...

It's Jennifer Aniston. Notorious pot head. That is what the "friends" comment is about. Plus, NY Daily News BIs are written to be very obvious.

what about sienna miller?

Anonymous said...

Fledgling career is Jennifer Aniston. She's pimping water for God's sake.

Tripoli said...

Fledgling = just starting out.

No way it's Jennifer Aniston.

Hayden P.'s career is just starting out on Heroes, plus she's known for her partying. I'm going with her.

Anonymous said...

Anon 9:47, I love the SJP guess. And the "lovely" ref makes sense. Her "friends" could refer to the cast and the "not just" could be referring to Matthew. although I dunno if he's has enough time to care about her since someone's prob balls deep in his tooter. (Ya know he's a bottom!) But she's not inexperienced or new on the scene.

What about Hilary Duff? Or Emma Roberts? Isn't she blonde? Or Amanda Bynes? Although she looks healthy enough.

oh ah, what if it IS Jessica Simpson...her professional 'acting' career is fledgling for sure

And John Mayer gave that cryptic quote in Japanese saying she was "a lovely woman" to Ryan Seacrest at the AMAs..

Sorry to call you out anon 10:44am because you put alot of effort into it...

but the BI was using fledgling as an adjective

All i did was cut and paste the dictionary definitions of the word fledgling, which is both a noun and an adjective...point being, it isn't someone with an established career...

what about lisa kudrow "friends" comment makes me wonder....and what's she done ever? besides friends?

Sorry to call you out anon 10:46 -- but you are an a$$.

Twisted Sister said...

Hayden P. has been acting for an awfully long time to be considered a fledgling. It's been seven years since she was in Remember the Titans.

Anonymous said...

HA! Lisa Kudrow == I can even take the lame-o on here today.

You have fledgling SPELLED out for you ... DEFINED even ... and you're still guessing actresses that were on TV shows for 10+ years, five years ago????????????????????

Just because of the word "friends" ... that's not even a focus of the item. It says MORE THAN JUST HER FRIENDS ARE WORRIED. We should be thinking of WHO ELSE is worried ... her family (maybe she's the daughter of someone famous, the SISTER of someone famous? Britney's sis?? Julia Roberts' niece?? -- both fledgling actresses BTW .. just like, say, um, KATE HUDSON, UMA THURMAN, JENNIFER ANISTON are NOT!!!!!!!!!)

Anonymous said...

-lovely= pretty
-blond
-actress= not a singer
-attention= I'd assume press/gossip coverage
-more attention for drug use (partying)
-fledgling career= inexperienced because still learning or just starting (dictionary definition)
-not only friends that are worried

Hayden has been getting alot of attention for partying lately. I don't know if the actress is young, but fledgling career would make it seem someone who's career is just taking off.

10:58...you must be the other rabid poster from earlier.

Just a question - will it kill you if we guess incorrectly? I wasn't aware that this was life or death. I thought BIs were like games, to guess in fun and jest. Sorry if you're getting so irritated, might be time for you to lay off the caffeine a bit? ;o)

Here's a shot in the dark- what about Brooke Hogan. I know she's trying to be a singer, but I thought the reality show might put her in the "actress" category. She's bombing at having a Hollywood career- singing or acting. Her family is famous, hence the "not just her friends" comment. She gets ripped up on all the gossip sites, and is having family problems- so I could see her turning to coke.

OOOOOPS. It said "lovely", nevermind.

It must be Lindsey Lohan.

I don't think it's all that negative if people just get tired of reading bad guesses, but do what I do and just close the comments pop up, and ruminate on how your deductive reasoning skills are definitely better than average as you walk away from the computer.

Brooke Hogan's massive thighs lead convincing evidence that it is NOT her.

Anonymous said...

Ok- I need more info on the High School musical kids. Who are they?

Robin said...

Ok, the blind says she's an actress but there are many actresses who try other careers out like singing for example. SO my thought is that fledgling career may not be referring to her career as an actress but referring to something else she's trying out or new at. That being said, the Sarah Jessica Parker guess could work because although she's not new at acting, she is new with her perfume line Lovely. I'm now going to brace myself for the angry screaming posts respond to my reasoning...

Anonymous said...

I am still thinking it is Jessica Simpson. She may not be "new" to the entertainment industry, but she IS a new movie actress.

And with Employee of the Month bombing, John Mayer dumping her, and a new movie about to start filming, she may be hitting the white horse big time. Papa Joe would not approve.

Anonymous said...

Robin,
SJP's "Lovely" scent launched in 2005. Perhaps you've missed the deluge of print ads in the last two years. Maybe you're thinking of her "Bitten" clothes line that JUST launched?

Anyway -- it ain't her.

But thanks for playing! I mean -- stop trying.

Anonymous said...

Robin- I see what you're saying, and it's a possibility. I don't agree with SJP neccessarily. What other blonde actresses are branching into other realms? Some one who's trying singing perhaps?

Anonymous said...

Robin, I agree with your "fledgling career" rationale, not your SJP pick.

What about Evan Rachel Wood? People are more caught up in her dating M.Manson than anyone's ever noticed her acting career. I know she's not new to acting, but she is young, and a few films under your belt doesn't make you a seasoned actress. She's blonde and pretty. And there's been alot of talk about MM talking to her dad about her NOT doing drugs like he does. Maybe the family is concerned, with good reson.

Anonymous said...

I really doubt Jessica Simpson. She's losing the weight for a movie role. She's had a few movies, and has gotten lots of attention for them. Even if they bombed. Plus is she an actress or singer?

Mooshki said...

All of them.

evan rachel wood is a great guess. she's been around for awhile but her career is still at the stage where it could just die off easily.

I like the Evan Rachel Wood guess. She's been in movies, but is still what I'd consider a fledgling!

Anonymous said...

Evan Rachel Wood is a effing great pick. She's skinny as shit and she has to take SOMETHING to get moist for the crypt keeper she's fucking. She's what I would describe "lovely" and her past few movies have been indy and cutting edge, Thirteen got a lot of attention. I like it!

Brittany Murphy might be a good guess. Lovely and blond, got attention for her carreer a few years ago (Girl Interrupted, 8 Miles, Sin City) but it's fledgling.

However, there's no reference to the new husband.

Anonymous said...

12:25- BM (unfortunate initials)hasn't been blonde in awhile. She's been a brunette for at least the last year. I don't think sh'e fledgling either. She's done multiple, multiple movies, tv voiceover work. She's not branching out into anything new right now either. No way!But she could be a big old coke head! I'll give you that!

Anonymous said...

Why is everyone so eager to dismiss Hayden P?? To me it seems like the most obvious guess, but maybe that's why people don't want to believe it. The NY Daily News items are never THAT tricky... This isn't Ted C. and it's not going to be someone from way out of left field like Jessica Simpson or SJP (WTF?!?!?!)

Again, Hayden has actually been an actor since she was a wee lass. Also, the Crypt Keeper (as he's so elegantly called here) is known for his coke habit...there is some merit to it.

Anonymous said...

Jessica Simpson has nothing fledling about her or her career. You can want it to be her all you want, but saying it over and over won't make it the answer! But thank you for playing the blind guess-whatever-first-thought-you-have item game!

Anonymous said...

Hayden started acting on One Life to live in 1994. She has 39 entries in IMDb since then. She was regularly on Malcolm in the Middle, Ally McBeal, Guiding Light and One Life to Live, and of course Heroes. I don't consider that a new career. She only has one item in post-production

Rachel Evan Wood also started in 94. She has 31 entries. She did nothiing in 2004. Most of the beginning parts were bit parts. She does have 5 projects either in production or just finished. That is more than she's ever done in the past. I think this is a little more "fledgling".

This is all from IMDb.

it must be someone really thin suddenly...put in perspective of course. ALOT of actresses are really really thin...


but someone who has dropped some serious lbs lately

Anonymous said...

The only reason I didn't say Hayden is because she's a popular guess for many of the BIs. But also because she was on shows like Ally McBeal back in the day.

I like Rachel Wood because she's getting a lot of attention b/c of who she's dating, not what she stars in, like Hayden. Also, did anyone see Thriteen? She played drug addicted/self-cutter teen very well...before Lohan played one in real life. Haaaaaahaaaaaa! *Ahem*

I'm gonna go with Elisha Cuthbert. Her films have mostly been indie and she hasn't had a box office hit. Also, she hangs out with Paris Hilton, who obviously does drugs.

Anonymous said...

Hayden looks like the opposite of a coke head...
she certainly is not at all coke skinny, she has better skin than J Lo and is pleasantly perky and refreshingly upbeat and fun but not in a cokey way...
I am aware that she parties, but if it was to the point that the blind suggests she would look a little more like road kill, non?

did you notice that jessica simpson has lost about 18 pounds in a matter of about 2 weeks????
She's new at the movie acting...

remember Ted's blind about the husband who offered his wife coke as a diet plan and she got horribly addicted and needed help... maybe it was her as the Ted blind was before her and nick split up... maybe it was her and she's back to her old ways...

just a guess, so dont assasinate me you PMS-ing bitch wherever you are...

Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ!! You people are fucking stupid!!

Fledgling = new or newborn

Flailing/floundering = rocky and/or failing.

Almost all the people guessed here are showbiz veterans, including Hayden, who's been acting for at least 10 years.

Now think of some skinny bitch new to TV/films that you MIGHT know.

clearly its Jessica. Her "movie career" (if you could call it that), has so far failed miserably (along with her music career, which is non existant). I wouldnt be surprised, given her break up and the fact that her sister gets her artistic attention than her.

jess is a stupid blond twat.

Anonymous said...

Got it. Sienna Miller. She's only been acting since 2001. Her first big hit was in 2004. I'd consider that a little more "fledgling" than Hayden or ERW. I think the guess that it's an established actress who's branching off into a new venue, and is failing at it would be more of a possibility if "fledgling" wasn't the only real hint. "Lovely" sounds sort of English, and although SM was born in the US, she was raised in the UK. So that's my final guess. Besides she's notoriously known as being a coke fiend. I'm betting the production companies that hire her/director's she works for are a little nervous for her.

Amy Smart was in Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds.

"fledgeling" means newcomer, newbie,starter, neophyte, freshman, young and inexperienced;

My guess is Emma Roberts

Anonymous said...

Evan Rachel Wood=Not lovely.

I say it's Emma Roberts.
I think "it's not just her friends" refers to her family, as in Julia Roberts.

IMHO

PLUS I thkn this is a hint...

"The newest addition to the Roberts/Moder clan has arrived. (Just in time to see Nancy Drew - coincidence?)"

Nicole said...

it says fledgling career, not fledgling actress, the discriptor doesn't necessarily mean the actress is not well known or whatever. It could mean an actress who's career is in a slump right now.

Im on with the Jennifer Aniston guess... I like the "it's not just her friends who are worried" line.

Nicole said...

PS: don't freaking blow a gasket if you don't like my guess. It's just a guess. People need to chill out on here! It's a blog!

Anonymous said...

Nicole--"Fledgling career" as a shill for SmartWater? Could be, could be.
She's got to keep her weight down somehow...she's not naturally thin.

Nicole said...

1:31 - definately, the NY Daily blinds are usually really obvious, and I think that the answer is staring us in the face with the "friends" line, because the rest of the BI is pretty vague. I mean, there are alot of actresses that are blonde with slumping careers... who knows!
