Today's Blind Items

This A list movie actor is supposed to be sober. (He isn't). He is also supposed to be happily married which is why it was very surprising to see him take an escort into his hotel room yesterday afternoon.

Oh, please may it not be Robert Downey Jr.! Especially bc of the pics of him and his wife today!!!

Adventurous Kate said...

Ben Affleck.

(Not as a joke. I mean it. Though he may not be A-list anymore.)

RocketQueen said...

Oh no - please let this not be RDJ.

I don't think Affleck would just be called a "movie actor" anymore.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Duchovney?

Is he A-list movie? Probably not.

amazonblue said...

I second RDJ. I think there was a blind about him smoking pot with his son a few months ago.

SAD...

Adventurous Kate said...

Oh no. I hope this isn't RDJ, but who else could it be? :-(

Chrissy Buns said...

RDJ...how sad! that being said, could i be his escort?

KellyLynn said...

I'm on the RDJ train, as much as I hate to be. My husband and I were just talking a few days ago about how believable the drug scenes seemed to be in Sherlock Holmes, and how hard it must be for a recovered addict to return to his days of addiction, even if only for pretend.

Hendrix said...

RDJ?

God, say it isn't so. If it's him, I will be so sad. He worked so hard for his sobriety and it was so great to see him come back from being unisurable w/a dead career to being super duper A list again. And his wife is a great person.

If it is him, it just shows you the power of the disease. As we say in The Program, "When you're inside in a meeting, your disease is outside in the parking lot doing push ups" - waiting til you're vulnerable again. I'll say a prayer...if it is...

But Please say it isn't him, Enty.

jess said...

RDJ...a teaser in the random photos?

Ice Angel said...

Think think think think think....think of anyone else it might be besides RDJ!!!

It's just me! said...

How about Samuel L. Jackson, an admitted former alcholic and cocaine addict (and also married for at least 20 years)?

West End Girl said...

Immediate thought - RDJ.

Sadness if true, I was hoping his recovery was honest.

RDJ immediately popped into my head. On that note, I don't get his appeal. He's just like Charlie Sheen, only better at hiding it, imo.

Ellen said...

I really do not want this to be RDJ, even if he fits the criteria. I may be wrong, but I think that if RDJ wasn't staying sober, we would know pretty fast because he seems like he wouldn't do anything in moderation.

I don't like this guess much better, but what about Johnny Depp? I also thought of Colin Ferrell since he has looked thin lately, but is he married?

Unknown said...

I'll just repeat what everyone else has said...I really hope this is NOT RDJ.

Stacy said...

This is 100% RDJ. **cries softly**

RDJ is the logical first thought. i just refuse to believe it.

covering my ears, closing my eyes and singing LALALALALALALALALA.

danatestingsite said...

I really don't want it to be RDJ. Ben Affleck? Please? Please?

Nosey Parker said...

LOL@ nancer

Sad to say this does sound like RDJ

Borg Queen said...

Not only this is RDJ; he was with a male escort.

Ice Angel said...

captivagrl-I just looked up a list of A list actors in recovery and Ewan was on there...I just think that if this was true about him, it would be a lot of "meh." No one really knows much about his marriage, other than he has been seen with his arm around a co-star and I really don't think anyone even really knows he is recovering.

Michael Douglas is also in recovery. I'd much rather have this be him.

If it is RDJ, his wife is going to totally kick his ass when she finds out.

FrenchGirl said...

to be original, i will say Matt Damon even if i think he's RDJ!

Ice Angel said...

Yes, pomme, you guys are all quicker than me...was just going to post that as he is in the randoms, but mysteriously there is no caption. Is he supposed to be sober though?

Hendrix said...

Actually, Affleck is a possibility as well...don't know how seriously he takes his sobriety...

Meg said...

Oh no! Not RDJ! :( I hope not.

Maja With a J said...

RDJ was my first thought as well. That would SUCK! I just watched a thing on the Biography channel about him the other night and he really seems to be happy - happily married, happily sober. I really hope this isn't him. I love him.*L*

Cheryl said...

I actually don't think of Affleck as happily married. It kind of has to be RDJ. There was the pot with his son blind and another blind implying that he did some drinking after making Iron Man. And if it's true that it was a male escort, RDJ has been open about his bisexual past.

ThatsRight! said...

I say CHARLIE SHEEN!

ThatsRight! said...

I know, I know, he's not an A list movie actor or happily married but I'm trying to find someone other than RDJ.

nunaurbiz said...

Johnny Depp isn't married.

Am racking brain trying to make this fit anyone other than RDJ!!!!

Unknown said...

Ben Affleck is happily married but would not be described as an A-lsit actor (probably described as sometime actor and director, politically active). This is. not him.

Dijea said...

My first thought was RDJ - and the fact that he's in the random photos as well as on Letterman last night. He was also in rare form.

I hope & pray its not him - give me someone else.

BlackCat14 said...

Just to throw another name out there, what about David Arquette? He's not A-list, unless you count the Scream movies but he fits the rest...and I'll happily grasp at any straw for it not to be RDJ.

nunaurbiz said...

No way Duchovny, Arquette and Affleck are A-list.

nunaurbiz said...

Anybody know if Jeff Bridges had a drug or alcohol problem? He's A-list now and plays alcoholic in Crazy Heart and everyone talks about how happily he's married.

Really don't want it to be about him, either, but just throwing it out there.

Is Samuel L Jackson A-list?

Hordaz1_01 said...

Josh Brolin maybe

lmnop123 said...

Like everyone else I immediately thought of RDJ but I sincerely hope it isn't him or Matt Damon so could you smart people please put on your thinking caps and find another person to fit this blind.

nunaurbiz said...

Nic Cage?

nunaurbiz said...

Two happily married A-listers are Eric Bana and Hugh Jackman, but notwithstanding the questions on Hugh's sexual leanings, don't think they've been on benders, have they?

Icecat said...

Well I, like everyone, immediatly thought of RDJ. AND, like everyone I REALLY hope it isn't him.

I don't think it is. I choose to believe it isn't. We all saw pictures of him outside letterman kissing his wife in the randoms, and I also read excerpts of his Rolling Stone interview that is coming out soon. He opens up about his drug use and other things in the past. I really think this blind is to lead us to believe it is him, but really it is someone else. PLEASE someone else...
Out of all of the lost causes in Hollywood, I had HIGH hopes for him. I have been a fan since the 80's, and I think we've all watched the ups and downs.. If this is him I'm going to have the sads in a big way...

Let's think!! Who else could it be??

nancer said...

i don't see why it can't be fucking affleck. he won an oscar so he's A---even if it was for writing.

it's him.

(not just saying this because i love RDJ. i really think it's ben.)

jen said...

There are tons of A list movie actors, and plenty with addictions. Doesn't have to be RDJ. Do I have another guess? Besides Affleck, no I don't - but I NEVER do with these things LOL. This SO doesn't HAVE to be RDJ, it can be many people, this is a pretty open blind (AND don't forget it's not rare for RDJ to be in the randoms, and he could be there because he's hardcore promoting his new movie.)

ardleighstreet said...

Just to be different Russell Crowe.

Unknown said...

ok with the rest of you - thought of rdj but am hoping it is not - i love that guy! i remember seeing less than zero at 13 and falling in lust with that boy (yeah - i think i have issues too - he was a dug addicted prostitute and at 13 i reacted with YUM!).

So lets just all calm down and jump on the affleck train (cos i NEVER found him attractive!) can he be an a-list actor if his oscar is for writing?

Unknown said...

ardleigh - russell crow - that is a good guess (i dont like him either!!) and he would be away from his wife while he is promoting that movie that no one is going to go see - and he has issues! (but it would not be to much of a shock with him - he is just soo scummy and horrible!)

Barton Fink said...

When people have substance abuse problems, they often relapse -- it's a major part of the disease. When they are actively using, they aren't happy people, and their relationships suffer. Coke freaks in particular generally have linked sexuality with drug use, as have meth freaks. If Downey is using again, he's also going to be around prostitutes -- that was his using behavior before, and the using behavior returns when you use. Take it from me, a stimulant addict can't break out of their behavioral pattern of use -- it's wired into their brain.

Eileen said...

Mark Wahlberg?

delilah said...

i actually think this is Damon

wonder Dave said...

What about Harrison Ford? Although I don't know if he's ever been in recovery....

Unknown said...

Sean Penn?!

lmnop123 said...

I'm jumping on the Russell Crowe train.

B626 said...

RDJ, if this guy could only learn to indulge in moderation I wouldn't feel so bad about it.

Unknown said...

RDJ. What really is in that "lunchbox" of his?

Unknown said...

Tom Hanks, you slut!

Mango said...

Eric Bana is A-List??

Count me in as also hoping that it isn't RDJ, although I fear that he's the blind. Saw him on Letterman the other night (which I never watch and only stopped to view because it was RDJ on) and he was decidedly twitchy.

Russell Crowe is a great guess. Big frickin' ego and he's into threesomes and "persuading" a female on the set of his current movie to play with him and his wifey. What an honor. UGH. Much to my personal disgust he happens to be the lead in one of my very favorite movies ever, Master and Commander, and is EXCELLENT in the role of Captain Jack Aubrey, but IRL he's an all-round jerk and creep extraordinaire.

J said...

Sounds like RDJ. He will battle addiction for the rest of his life. Life of an addict is either on or off the wagon. I thought he'd fell off some time ago judging from his behavior doing press for Sherlock Holmes.

Shocked @ the escort. Was it male or female? Could it be someone else?

Affleck, according to Enty, is B-list. He may have dropped lower as of late.

uofazwildkitty said...

Russell Crowe's ideal escort is a full-length mirror. Snotty Aussie troll.

mmg said...

If it's Downey the relapses aren't anything new- there's been talk since before the first movie two years ago. Like J said, addiction (and recovery) are for life. It happens.

And yeah, the escort was probably male.

sunnyside1213 said...

Enty, please tell us if this isn't RDJ.

Why does everyone think the escort was male?

sunnyside1213 said...

I serously double Ben A is happily married.

Linnea said...

hahahaha @ea73

Unknown said...

Easy....Kevin James or Jerry Stiller of "The King of Queens" fame.

sandman said...

isn't rdj really gay or is that just common knowledge?

Just Another Blonde said...

Affleck?

But seriously, it's probably RDJ. He has cokey eyes all the time now. So sad!

Melody the First said...

RDJ has in pre-production:

The Avengers (2012)
Untitled Sherlock Holmes Sequel (2011)

He also is on the hook for Oz, Poe and IM3. No way any major insurer would clear him for those projects if he was using. They'd be pee testing him every morning before anything was signed.

Also, the term "sober" sounds more like an alcohol problem. RDJ's primary problem was drugs. He was only nominally into alcohol (which I know is a drug, but I'm discussing terminology).

Moonmaid said...

I'm for Crowe. He looks real puffy and unhealthy lately - not just age. And he gives lots of lip service to how happily he is married. RDJ looks very good lately, and I have a pretty good eye for drunks and druggies.

Also, RDJ would immediately be out of control crazy - he has stated that repeatedly. No blinds, he would be out in the open, just like in the past!
