#2 Kate Winslet - The Reader ?

palealebrew10 said...

Ugh, I can't figure these out. I really want to know the answer to the second one, even though infidelity is rampant in h-wood.

ms snarky said...

#2 - Meryl Streep?

militia

Samira said...

Meryl Streep was the first one that I thought of for nr 2.

Well Alex Castro (Militia) did do gay-themed muscle jack off videos. Laser from the original series was rumored to have done gay-themed wrestling vids back in the day. From the old days, they're all either married or severely homophobic, or still working (Hawk from the original ones still gets stuff on TV/movies).

No clue for #2

Grace said...

The second blind seems like a previous blind almost worded the same.

Streep is an Oscar winner, not merely nominated. Same with Kate Winslet.

WineGirl X said...

Well I don't know who is offering the massages, but could someone tell him (or her) that I could sure use one!

Nature Girl said...

Winslet's never won an Oscar, just nominated several times. She's hoping this year's the year.

selenakyle said...

I still think it could be Annette Bening, although Winslet has been looking smokin' hot lately.

A new crush or lover or fling can do that to a woman...

Cheryl said...

Kate Winslet has been nominated five times but has never won. She was the first one I thought of for #2.

ms snarky said...

Didn't Winslet leave her first husband for her director? (Sam Raimi)

verbal761 said...

@ ms snarky - Winslet's husband is Sam Mendes - director of "American Beauty" among other movies. She supposedly started dated Mendes three months after her split - http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,185265,00.html

Snowowl said...

I am wondering if Enty might be trying to be misleading with the nominated part? He doesn't say if they did or didn't win.
I know that there was many rumors about Nicole Kidman and Baz Lurhmann on both the set of Australia and when they did Moulin Rouge.

Andy said...

If #1 is Lace from the original Gladiators and she's aged well, I'll hire her.

(The original show WAS 20 years ago, after all.)

Jamie's Girl said...

I thought Nicole Kidman was pregnant with Ewan McGregor's baby on the set of Moulin Rouge and that's the baby she publicly lost with Tom Cruise disclaiming it. Anyway. They had an affair, although he is supposed to be gay. I think alot of people in Hollywood sleep with anybody who'll jump in their bed, regardless of gender. Andy Dick is not a pioneer in Hollywood.

palealebrew10 said...

Andy Dick was interviewed on the Adam Carolla radio show about a year ago and he said he tends to hook up with men when he's sober and women when he's drunk. I thought that was interesting since I would assume it's usually the other way around(why does that sound dirty?).

candigirl21 said...

is beyonce nominated for that god awful movie?

Cheryl said...

Jamie's Girl:

You are probably right about many in Hollywood swinging both ways when convenient. I am reading Hollywood Babylon:It's Back and if the authors can believed many people you would never think of as having same sex affairs did. Lot's of male actors will give a blow job to a director or producer if it will get them a good role.

Hervana said...

#1 Is it Russell Crowe?

Scrub that, he's a New Zealander.

#2 Ingrid Bergman?

maggiemei said...

Kate Winslet does have a tendency to hook up with directors. Her first husband was assistant director on Hideous Kinky, and she is now married to Sam Mendes (but wasn't in any of his movies until this year's Revolutionary Road). Stephen Daldry, who directed The Reader, is married too.

sandman said...

i read where sammy davis jr used to blow everything that moved which i can definately believe.

kathryn said...

cate blanchett

jax said...

i totally think kate winslet as well.
girl has been looking goooood lately. like too good,ya know?

ms snarky said...

verbal -
my duh, I was in a hurry and free associating with the names. whatever sam works! thanks for the correction

trashtalker said...

Diane Lane? Julianne Moore? Felicity Huffman? ... Elisabeth Shue? (Ent put ES and her husband in the random photos two weeks ago and asked how long they've been married.)

Beth said...

Stephen Daldry is married, but he is also gay -- like actually out-of-the-closet gay. If we're going the Kate Winslet route, I would look at other movies she's working on.

Baz Luhrmann is more likely to have had an affair with Hugh Jackman than Nicole Kidman.

Reyla said...

For me to believe Nicole Kidman had sex with anyone I would have to believe that she has a vagina and I just don't buy that.
Ewan may be a swinger but I truly hope his standards swing higher than NK.

As for the blind:

#1. I don't watch gladiators so I will assume it's hulk hogan and I will be a happy camper.

#2. Tommy girl. Why not?

sandman said...

nicole kidman is a very odd person, probably due to the tommygirl yrs.
its good to see k. holmes is picking up where she left off

Jungle007 said...

laura linney??

gossip said...

Laura Linney isn't married.

white lorelei said...

I took it to mean nominated this year specifically ... and thought Kate Winslet, too. She's looking very "refreshed".

maggiemei said...

The Oscar nominations have not come out yet. Kate is predicted to get at least one nomination for her 2 films.
But I don't want it to be her! She is awesome.

ElsieFire said...

Looks like we have a winner for #1!

ZAP from AG, according to Dlisted.com

Christine said...

Has anyone figured out this Lainey Gossip item?? I think the first is Will Smith.

Cuba & Chocolate

Two different megastars, two different preferences, but in the end, the act is the same.

The first is a happy father, settled down and reformed, bankable and respected at the same time… a major player. Which is why it’s so important that he keeps his Cuban male lover hidden away to be enjoyed when he’s not on location. It might seem risqué, having his secret stashed so close to home and his official partner, but he’s hot and horny, and it’s not like he’s not living in a freestyling environment, although I have to tell you, this one really, really surprised me. He plays it so well. And in the end, if it wasn’t such a fraud, it totally wouldn’t matter. He is the nicest, nicest person. Kind and considerate and generous… makes me sad he’s forced to live a lie.

The other is much less attached, but just as heterosexually pressured, perhaps even more so. While he’s best known for his female pursuits, and so many females need to believe it that way, it would seem that women are not his only pleasures. When he decides he has a yearning for the other sex however, his flavour is decidedly darker. Sweet chocolate is what they call it? Yes. Black men are his weakness. On occasion, his hankering for it can get him into trouble. He was recently captivated by a fine black man working security at an event who was, unfortunately, not a homosexual. Apparently our star doesn’t have a very sophisticated gaydar because he hit up the wrong dude who did not appreciate the attention, even coming from such a powerful and coveted celebrity. He almost had his ass kicked. His people had to intervene, placate the man, pay off the man… although if he did end up getting the beat-down, he probably would have liked it. Because word is, as time goes on, he’s leaning towards picking a side. Like playing exclusively for the boys team.

The "nots" are Johnny Depp, Robert Downey Jr., Brad Pitt or Jude Law.

The Gladiatrix in question is "Zap".

Her C/L ad, btw.

shakey said...

I really don't know about Ent's blinds, but I'm wondering if ole George may come out of the closet on Lainey's No. 2.

Beth said...

It appears to be Zap according to gossiplist:

gossip said...

Here are some potentials who aren't Kate Winslet but fit the bill.

Debra Winger - Rachel Getting Married
Catalina Sandino Moreno - Che (Parts 1 and 2)
Angela Bassett (is in Nothing But the Truth and Notorious

All have been nominated for Oscars but never won and are in press junket modes.
