Today's Blind Items

This C- list actress with B list name recognition used to be a B or B+ movie star. She then got into drugs and basically withered away her career. It happens. She had begun making a comeback last year but had to drop out of a movie because she needed surgery. What kind of surgery? Because of her past nose candy use, her entire nose had to be reconstructed and then had to have surgery on both of her cheeks as well. After taking almost an entire year off to recover she is back working and is in a big fall movie.

that girl from clueless - i forgot her name, not alicia silverstone

jw12 said...

cdan- i couldn't think of her name too.


Brittany Murphy

MissMouse said...

ooh I like the Kirsten Dunst guess.

cdanluva said...

i just remembered - Britney Murphy!

Tenley said...

Brittany Murphy! She came to mind immediately but I couldn't think of her name either, thank you jw12!

dunst/how to lose friends....

It's likely not Britney Murphy is people couldn't remember her name. If you look at IMDB, it's not Wynona Ryder.

ms snarky said...

it's Brittany Murphy. She's been the subject of blinds for a while now because of drug use and the shady hubby and the career slide.

RocketQueen said...

But what's the big fall movie? Checked Brittany's IMDB, nothing stands out.

Karmen said...

Kirsten Dunst has a "All Good Things" coming out this fall. Are we sure that's going to be a big movie?

Brittany Murphy has "Abandoned" in post-production, but IMDb doesn't say when it will be released. Also, it doesn't seem as though the movie's going to be that big of a deal.

warmislandsun said...

Is Brittany Murphy in a big fall movie? I didn't notice anything big listed on her IMDb profile.

Moosefan said...

Laura Flynn Boyle...

Unknown said...

Ashley Judd doesn't have anything listed on IMDb from 2006 to 2009. I can't remember if she's been seen anywhere recently.

Karmen said...

Laura Flynn Boyle doesn't have any big movies coming out this fall or next fall.

Enty just said "big fall movie" which is incredibly vague. For all we know, that could be next fall.

dmd77 said...

I think it's Brittany as well. Her movie "Megafault" is set to be released in September according to IMDB. Mega = big...

McDooks said...

Damn, in THIS economy the amount of money she musta snorted up her NOSE to do such extensive damage is just crazy.

Jaiden_S said...

Juliette Lewis is going to be in "Whip it" this fall. Maybe it's her.

Jilly said...

I'm confused! She dropped out of a movie last year (2008) for her little "surgery", took a whole year off, and now has a come back movie coming out this fall. Weren't most of the movies being released this fall (as in September, October, November) filmed last year?

For instance, Shutter Island is coming out October 2nd, and production started way back in March of 2008... The time line isn't working for me for a fall of 2009 movie... Could he mean a fall of 2010 big release?

ItsJustMe said...

Britney Murphy ... ah, poor thing. Drugs are terrible. There was an enty blind about her and her husband coming to work on the film as her makeup artist.

Angela said...

Released this fall:
Carriers - starring Piper Perabo (a strong contender)
Splice - with Sarah Polley (big gap in career between the movie she directed and the John Adams mini series)
2012 - Thandie Newton

Check that out!

Someone looks "different", non?

Brittany for the win.
Fantastic Mr. Fox for the movie!

AvaMore said...

Sorry~ wrong #.

Going with dmd77's guess!

Angela said...

Brittany Murphy? Megafault is a TV movie for Sci-Fi (or Sy-Fy). "The Fantastic Mr Fox" is an animation movie by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou). And when you do voices for an animation movie, nobody is concerned with how you look. Recording is actually done well in advance.

Isn't it sad - and telling - how every time I hear talk of nose candy, I immediately think of Lindsay Lohan? I know this isn't her - Brittany Murphy is my guess - but still. Lohan = coke. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. Good luck with that career.

jannjeanettej said...

Jennifer Esposito is in the pictures below and she looks a little different...plus notice the caption. Don't know if she was ever B/B+, though.

Angela said...

At least, it can't be Lohan. Materially, she has made the headlines almost every day which would leave her no time for the nose and cheeks surgery.

Miss X said...

Jennifer Esposito was in Samantha Who? for the past couple of years, so it isn't her.

this blind makes me sad

libby said...

AvaMore, those recent pictures PROVE Brittany's certainly had a complete re-do of her face. Her cheeks are bigger, her face is really tight, her nose is smaller, and even her lips are inflated. She looks 17!

I think it's her too. I really hope she stays clean, because I loved her in 'Clueless' and KOTH.

libby said...

btw, guys:

Not Ashley Judd: She follows her husband around the country to all his IndyCar races, eats up the attention she gets.

Not Juliette Lewis: Has been playing live with her band pretty relentlessly for the past few years. Though I could definitely see her needing stimulants to keep up the wacky shows she does.

Judi said...

Murphy was on a late night talk show recently (in the last couple of months) and she looked AWFUL! Definitely had major work done. Wouldn't be at all surprised if this BI is her.

RagDoll said...

Yikes!!! I had to look at the caption on that B. murphy pic a couple of times, and leaf thru the other ones posted on IMDB. If they weren't all consolidated under her IMDB, I'd have a hard time believing it was even her! Jeezis! Murphy, FTW. I hope she's OK now.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

The natural 'bags'/flesh that Brittany had under her eyes is gone in those new pictures. That is the first thing I noticed. I don't know if that would have resulted from having her cheeks done or if she just had it thrown in when they were doing them anyway. I always loved her. I hope she has put all that fuckery behind her.

Wil said...

Totally Brittany ..

You can experience her recent interview on Craig Ferguson here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1NgJF7OImM Takes a while to load .. but worth it.

Brainy Pirate said...

Re: Brittany Murphy

I thought she was confirmed for the blind about the actress who was recently cut out of a big movie because of drug use. That doesn't sound to me like "dropped out of the film for surgery."

Or am I mistaken about the previous blind?

K said...

She looks so different in the video Wil posted that I thought she was Sarah Jessica Parker, skipping out onto the stage.

Superwife said...

Compare these two photos:

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2044631808/nm0005261

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3579218688/nm0005261

Unknown said...

No way it's Sarah Polley. She's been appearing in, writing and directing fine indy films up here in beautiful Canuckistan.

memyselfandi said...

Yeah I agree with the Brittany guess.

Look at this photo of her http://hotcelebrity.name/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/4914_7501_murphy-brittany-07-4x.jpg

and compare that to this

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3579218688/nm0005261

Doesn't even look like the same girl. She used to be so pretty. Now she looks like plastic. And what's with her eyebrows now? They are so bushy and a completely different shape. Not to mention her eyes and lips.

Wow, what a shame. She was actually better off with Ashton Kutcher instead of this weird old guy she married.

MnGddess said...

Watch Brittany Murphy on the Craig Ferguson clip on youtube. What's with the accent???

Smokey772 said...

Keri Russell immediately came to mind, she made a bit of a comeback last year with the Waitress and August Rush but then fell off... but I don't think she was ever considered a B/B+ movie actress.

Himmmm said...

OMFG!!!THIS IS sooooo OBVIOUS!!! It totally HAS to be Barbra Streisand!!! Can you imagine how much Coke she could hoover with that schnoz? She walks into a party and even the Columbians get nervous.

mooshki said...

Himmmm, I've told this story here before, but one of my dad's former students was in a band that worked with Barbra back in the '80s, and they said she was doing mountains of coke every time they were with her. I guess not enough to damage that awesome nose, though, thank goodness. :)

Unknown said...

I never thought Brittany Murphy, I'll have to check out some pics.
How about Elisha Cuthbert?

Jon said...

How about Rose McGowan? Her face is looking busted and she claims to have had to have plastic surgery on it due to a car accident.

Brittany Murphy looks horrible. FTW

amanda rae said...

I think it's Kate Beckinsale. She's in some movie coming out. It looks like utter shit, but I bet it'll make bank, and I haven't seen her do anything lately. I do wish she'd go away forever though, I cannot stand her!
