Today's Blind Items - She Isn't Going To Talk About Her Cancer

In all the talk about Angelina Jolie's personal story about what she has done to prevent getting cancer, this Academy Award winner/nominee is not talking to anyone about the cancer that may take her life. About two years ago she discovered she had ovarian cancer. While fighting it, she continued to work, but not very much as the treatments were draining her. She stayed in her home country for most of it to be out of the prying eyes of paps and because she knew she would get more privacy. She is married and has kid(s). She has been in some of the biggest grossing movies in history. She is back in the US now and says that she has won the battle, but still knows she will probably lose the war and has decided that she is not going to share her story because she is a private person. She says that it will probably come out someday and that for now, the still B list mostly movie actress wants to work. She says that except when she is spending time with her family, what makes her feel alive is making movies.

Yep about to say the same thing as Sophia...They have HIPAA rules for a reason. Not everyone has to share their personal story and no shame if they decide to do so, but if she wants privacy then she should get it.

Tru Leigh said...

Quvenzhané Wallis.

Just kidding. All I can think of is Marion Cottiard.

Karen said...

Kate Beckinsale? She has nothing on IMDB for 2010-2011.

a non a miss said...

Why did you delete your Cruz guess and then give snark to someone else who guessed the same?

Rosemary Young said...

Please tell me it's not Cate Blanchett!

FrenchGirl said...

Emma Thompson?

MontanaMarriott said...

I want to say HBC but according to IMDB her and Tim Burton are not married but they do have young children

Nemesis said...

Charlize Theron

ArmyofOne said...

Cate Blanchett? Shes in the Daily Mail and is married has children and Academy Award

Terri said...

Kate Winslet?

FrenchGirl said...

marion Cotillard had a baby 2 years ago and she worked much since 2 years

Beckinsale never was Oscar nominated

Tru Leigh said...

Just checked Wikipedia. Julie Christie hasn't done much in the last two years.

This is how It's done. She doesn't need streamers and balloons from the tabloids like Angie did.

SophiaB said...

Whoever it is, right on! It is noone's bidness. Ovarian cancer is a total nightmare and I am astounded she can work. Whoever it is, my prayers are with them for a peaceful passing. It is really rare to survive ovarian cancer. There are few symptoms in the early stages and by the time it is detected, not a whole lot can be done. Tragic that there is so little in the way of testing for this. Awful...

msgirl said...

I know Enty is trying to shame AJ but I see this as a bit different, one was to get women past the shame of mastectomy, and the other one is facing death. I sure wouldn't want ot be examined every time I went out - is she dying yet, omg she looks terrible etc.

I hope whoever this is makes it, and kudos for keeping it in the family, her kids don't need more fears. Just goes to show you things can be kept quiet if one desires.

Tru Leigh said...

Emma Thompson?

stephani said...

I originally thought Cate Blanchette because of her participation in the LotR trilogy, but no way is she only B list. She is a goddess, and won't hear otherwise.

She also has a Woody Allen movie opening soon. It just saw the trailer. She looks healthy. I really hope it's not her.

Karen said...

@FrenchGirl, I looked that up right after I made my guess and figured out the same thing. Good catch.

me said...

Charlize Theron. Stay healthy!

Unknown said...

Marion or Kate becksindale. Sad either way.

MontanaMarriott said...

I hope it is not Cate B. but it would explain why she has not worked in a while after working back to back only thing working against it being her is "biggest grossing movies" part. I am not sure about that.

MontanaMarriott said...

OMG totally forgot about the LOTR movies, UGH I hope it is not her.

Karen said...

Keep in mind that not all cancer patients or people with deadly illnesses look like they're sick or dying. Just because someone looks fine doesn't mean that she is--and celebrties have it easier when trying to look awesome.

Someone Said said...

Samantha Morton or Emily Watson.

libby said...

Holy Shit, Rosemary. Cate B has A LOT coming up, but had a curious gap between 2008's "Benjamin Button" and one film in 2010, then she picks up MANY upcoming. I think you got it, IF Enty is fudging her rating to a B. I hope it's not her.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000949/


msgirl said...

Cate is not b-list, or at least I hope Enty doesn't peg her as such, I hope it's not her because otherwise she could fit,

SophiaB said...

I did not guess it was Penelope. I deleted this comment because I used a pronoun rather than a name referring to the unnamed person. My comment seemed like it would be the first and I was expressing the opinion that it was good the subject of the blind wasn't revealing ytheir status to the hoi poloi.

Gosh, I am so sorry to have gotten your knickers in a twist. As fat as I know I have not seen any posts from you, but really, I hate to cause confusion and was attempting to clear it all up. My comment about Penelope-that she is pregnant-is not snark. I just don't see how a person dealing with chemo treating ovarian cancer could be doing a pregnancy as well. I suppose it could be done, but I have never heard of it.

Since my grandmother WAS successfully treated for ovarian cancer (a miracle given how long ago she had it) and since I have been treated for cervical cancer, I have a bit of knowledge in this area. So. Sorry to have offended you so early in the morning. Yep. Sorry.

libby said...

NOTHING in 2009, msgirl, that's what's so odd. At least 3/year before and after the gap, around that.

BuffaloBlue said...

She was my first thought too, but she's not married. Is she?

Unknown said...

Very sad. Ovarian is a very tough cancer to beat because it is hard to catch early.

Cate Blanchett?

Kristin Wigs said...

Monica belluci was in Passion of the Christ and the Matrix movies.

Oopsy_Daisy said...

Kate Winslet

msgirl said...

Cate is currently in Australia, just debuted a new play that she stars in, and there was a pic of her watching her son play soccer 2 days ago. Not her. Phew

Remember she owns a theatre in Australia so gaps in filming don't mean a thing, she stars in a lot of the productions.

Unknown said...

I know enty had a blind a while ago about an actress who cut her hair and it was assumed for a role but it really was because she was sick. I wonder if this is the same actress. Very sad either way. Prayers for her and her family.

Kristin Wigs said...

Scratch belluci. Not Oscar nominated.

Salma Hayek hasn't done much acting lately. Lots of producing. Nominated for an Oscar.

SophiaB said...

Sherry, please note my explanation above. I was saying that it was a good thing she wasn't talking about it. Just a gaffe in terms of the order of tge post. No snark intended. Whoever it is has ANY need to talk about it. I wish this post wasn't even on the site bevause it is no one's business!

With all of my openness, which I do on purpose because the complexity of my illness history is just too much for most to understand and I am tired if keeping my mouth shut about tge medical system's utter failure to help me, I totally believe in anyone's right to privacy on medical grounds. Yes, even here on a gossip site...

Terri said...

On a positive note, we have a family friend who had stage 3 or 4 ov cancer and was in an experimental treatment. The cancer is gone.

libby said...

Hopefully THAT is a good explanation for Cate's gap, mscool. Thanks for the extra research. I've been wondering where she's been, and this blind is so sad. No matter who it is.

FrenchGirl said...

@Prima Cornice: you wrote about this blind item
there is nothing about short hair .Many guess was about Charlize Theron because of her short hair who was because of a movie

SophiaB said...

Gosh, that did not come out at alllll clearly. Whoever it is (the subject of the blind) does NOT HAVE ANY need to discuss it with the public.

There! Is Mercury retrograde again? What a mess!!

msgirl said...

libby - she's starring i with isabelle Hubert, I'd love to see that!

Nina Roux said...

I know AJ is a business woman, and knows how to work her public image with the media to support her business (and a lot of people think that's tacky - I just think it's smart) BUT - for an international sex symbol to go public about a double mastectomy and to talk openly about something so many women feel shame about is doing a service to women everywhere.
Not w/ ENTY on this.

FrenchGirl said...

Cate Blanchett has an hiatus between 2008 and 2010 (according to IMDB) after the birth of her 3rd son but she did play tours during her break

wade-o-potatoface said...

I still think Kidman. Anyone notice the (s) in kid(s)?

VaN said...

Whoever it is, I am sending a ton of positive healing vibes. Good for her not letting cancer win and living her life the way she wants to until she can no longer.

Fuck Cancer!!!

Maggie Smith barely mentioned her battle with cancer and shooting her scenes for various Harry Potter installments was scheduled around her treatment. I don't think any celebrity needs to speak publicly about health issues.

Julianne Moore? Rachel Weisz?I hope it's not any of these ladies. . .wouldn't wish this on anyone.

__-__=__ said...

I don't think AJ was honest about it, hence the entie's snark. She did a good thing lying through her teeth. Also have a friend who is now "cured" of cancer.

Have we ever had a President, or first lady die of cancer??

stephani said...

Betty Ford went through breast cancer treatment, while she was First Lady, if I recall. I was a kid then, but I remember hearing about it later.

Also, Jackie O succumbed to cancer. Not sure about any presidents.

Stacey Charter said...

I was 29 when i was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. it was caught in the very beginning stages 20 years ago and I have remained cancer free for those 20 yrs. Mine was caught by having a CA125 test done (1 and then 24 more thur the year) - and I credit that to Gene Wilder and an interview he gave about the test after Gilda died. Some day i will meet him and thank him personally. I was lucky enough to have already had a healthy child so at that young age, having the complete hysterectomy was a no brainer.

Hoping that whoever this is about, really has won the battle and the war...

So what were the biggest movies? Foreign actress who was in more than one? I'm drawing a blank - Harry Potter, Star Wars, hmm.

HannahBanana said...

Whoever it is....I'm so sorry for her & her family. I hope she gets to spend her life doing what she loves & wants. And gets the privacy she wants. Mostly, I hope she can beat it.

Unknown said...

Sophia B, as someone who had an aunt with ovarian cancer, I am assuming, perhaps wrongly, that this actress is in remission however the rate of recurrence is very high for ovarian cancer, particularly if it was not detected early in the first instance. My aunt beat it the first round - she was part of a group of 5 women who all were diagnosed at the same time and she was the only one who made it through to remission, but it came back a year later and she died a few years after that.

FrenchGirl said...

If she's Maggie Smith(widow, 2 kids and Harry Potter movies),she's known as breast cancer survivor and she's almost 80

lil miss sassy said...

Me too

crila16 said...

Winslet didn't work from 2011 - 2013. That's 2 years. She just started working again.

Alanna said...

I'd be surprised if it's someone from the UK, given the line in the blind about privacy in her home country. The British tabloids are often even worse than American ones. Then again, she might be able to file for a superinjunction to prevent the news from getting out over there.

Anothergrayhare said...

slightly OT but does anyone know of any alternative treatments for lung cancer that has gone to the brain? A close friend with 16 year old triplets has been given months to live and we would do anything to help her. Can't believe with all the millions spent that there isn't a cure. I've read about hemp and some other offbeat treatments. Thanks for any guidance.

Ja'mie King said...

Emma Thompson is an excellent guess.

msgirl said...

Kate Winslet is pregnant so not her.
Emma is a good guess. :(

So sorry for all of you with cancer stories.

katie said...

Kidman was born in the States, I thought.

MISCH said...

Kate and Penelope are both pregnant...
And I agree it's no one's business...unless you're an attention whore.
I wouldn't want people whispering and asking over and over are you all right...

msgirl said...

Emma has a ton on her plate now, but there was a notable absence of work around the time of Harry Potter. Which would fit with dx 2 years ago.

Sherry said...

SophiaB - I was agreeing with you. I saw nothing snarky or mean in your statement and indeed, felt it was kind. I'm not sure why that didn't come across. Absolutely it's that person's prerogative to either share or NOT.

Then I was thinking it would be terribly hypocritical of me to guess Emma Thompson. ;P

Err said...

Where was Liv Tyler born? She's probably B but not sure about nominations.

MrsAmiss said...

Congrats an being cancer free! I wish that was part of standard blood work.

Anonymous said...

I saw her in a play in London last year- it was quite a gruelling play - she's in it all the time for 3 hours and she seemed as much as you can tell healthy. I don't know how that fits into the timeline for being her but an observation.

Anonymous said...

She is the director of the Sydney theatre - much like Kevin spacey at the old vic, she may have been concentrating on that. It also means she is based in Sydney mostly not America. The blind reads that the actress is mainly in America

Hot Ham Water said...

Thanks for everyone's stories. It's great to hear when people have positive outcomes, and my deepest sympathies to those who haven't.

@Anothergrayhare- I don't know anything but I assume that your friend has looked for clinical trials? Clinicaltrials.gov is a good place to start. I've participated in a clinical trial and it was the best thing I've ever done. I can't imagine how frightening that situation must be for everyone. Hope you find some answers.

Anonymous said...

Exactly this. I'm sure it's not her. Also blind says found it approximately 2 years ago, I saw her in a play last year in London looking healthy but definitely working so doesn't fit at all

Stephe96 said...

Kiera Knightly was in Star Wars and Pirates of the Carribean. Does she have kids?

Anonymous said...

kiera..no kids
Penelope and Kate are pregnant

Im really liking Nicole on this

Yuffie said...

I don't like this blind...if she wants privacy, then she deserves the privacy.

MadamChef said...

Not sure why but I read this as the ever-gorgeous Kate Winslet. It would have to be a dying wish to marry someone with a douche name like Ned Rocknroll. Whoever it is this is sad.

a non a miss said...

You should delete that comment too- there's a spelling error.

Rosemary Young said...

Yay Stacey! Thanks for sharing.

Snapdragon said...

She says that ... what makes her feel alive is making movies.

More power to her.

Unknown said...

Emma Thompson did an HBO movie years ago called WIT. It was about a woman suffering from ovarian cancer I think.

Amy Adams was nominated and is in the randoms today.

Kelly Simmons said...


The other reality is -- unfortunately, being ill is not good for business, especially the movie business. Image is everything, and cancer changes the way people look at you.

Going through this myself right now (prognosis good thank god) but you have to question who you tell, and how much. Don't want to lose business or for anyone to not call you if they think you can't handle a job.

I know, I know, I just told you all, ha! Okay I am laughing at myself.

Everyone have a healthy, good day.
Hugs to those who are ill.

Katie said...

It is NOT really rare to survive ovarian cancer. Plenty of people survive it.

Unknown said...

Cate Blanchett. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Feel alive comment was from a Newsweek interview years ago. Much respect.

rachel said...

@Anothergrayhare I've heard of the rick simpson method

yodelay said...

I can't even venture a guess; it makes me too sad to think of any of these talented ladies are that ill. Here's to a great life, whoever you are!

Sherry said...

Kelly big hugs to you and your prognosis is good. May you be well and heal.

I was also thinking that the studio might have insurance issues if she is working on a film. The rat bastards!

Sherry said...

SopiaB: Mercury retrograde would explain my whole week. :o

Hope you are well. See my latter post referencing rat bastards = insurance companies. Apparently they can practice medicine without a license and get away with it. I wish you all the best in your struggle. Bad enough one has to fight to stay alive and then the insurance company as well. Sucks.

Anothergrayhare said...

Rachel and Hothamwater, thank you for taking the time to provide information. The Rick Simpson method sounds very interesting. I'll read further and forward the information on. Thank you again.

Jacq said...

Helen Mirren?

MrWolf said...

Could be Anna Kendrick as well. There've been previous blinds implying that she had a cancer issue.

I thought it was breast, but could be ovarian I guess.

We're British and Australian so not sure about in the US (assuming you're from the US) but this has had excellent results so far, I would recommend trying to contact people from Birmingham City University as it was a lecture from one of their scientists on their work on this which brought it to my attention.

portlandjewel said...

It's also not rare for people to DIE from it. Duh.

Sherry said...

Tina sincere condolences on your loss. I know you're grateful for the extra time you got with your aunt but sorry the others were not so lucky. .

Yes Stacey. Congratulations on being cancer free all these years and being herr to share with us. Rock on girl.

evie2345 said...

I think she took some time off from Hollywood films to work with a theater company in Sydney. I want to say she was running it or something, but can't remember.

Anyway, whoever this is deserves privacy if they want it, and best if luck to them.

Welldun said...

Hi guys!

Ovarian cancer survivor here, will be 10 years in November. Mine was listed as stage III/IV in my records because it was in lymph nodes close to an artery. My 5 years survival rate was 20% and here I am. It was found during emergency exploratory surgery, I ended up with complete hysterectomy and chemo.

Am sending positive energy to whoever this is.

My recommendations are get your blood tested as was mentioned earlier and minimize eating carbs. Call it paleo, lc/hf, whatever suits you but lose the carbs, they can feed cancer.

he is in the boston area, but there are other places in the us that do it.

go to youtube and put in 'tong ren' and 'tom tam' and you will see videos about it. and you will see some testimonials as well.

Sincere thanks to everyone for their suggestions for alternative cancer treatments. I would love to know the truth about why we can't find a cure despite millions of dollars in research. Hate to think it's deliberate, but it does make you wonder.

SophiaB said...

Horrors!!! A non a MISS THE F'ING POINT, thank you so very much for your kind blog management efforts. Whatever would the world DOOOOO without you??

SophiaB said...

Yes INDEED. I apparently won a minor victory regarding my disability claim. Got a surprise call from my attorneys today. That it took from January 2012 to THIS WEEK to get something to happen by my own representation should give you some clue ss to ky frustration, exhaustion and rage. BUT it was a good thing so I shall be grateful.

I seem to have misread your post (I seem to he doing that lately) so am grateful I did not offend you. Small blessing ;).

I spent approximately $100K over 15-20 years trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I may or may not heal all the way up at this stage of the game. I just want my MONEY so I can do some things I need to to get better. And to take pressure off my hobbit hubby who has MS and is getting sicker due to all the stress.

I am furious at our f'd up medical system and want nothing more than to get well so I can fight the good fight for Medicare For All.

Good luck to you in your efforts. I may have missed whqt you are dealing with but beleeeve me when I say: I feel your pain...

Sending pink bubbles of joy to all who expetience serious or chronic pain. Very few understand how hard it is to negotiate the complicated medical syatem while awfully terribly screamingly ill. It is a criminal enterprise, as far as I can tell, with us taxpayers as the unwitting accomplices. Hugs!!

SophiaB said...

Yay! That is wonderful to hear. My prayers for the woman and her family... wooo!

SophiaB said...

Stacey, that is just great. So glad to hear...

SophiaB said...

Tina, so very sorry for your loss. I know just enough to know that it takes enormous courage and strength to deal with ovarian cancer. I am glad you had some extra time with her. It had to he so tough to lose her after she had a successful first round of treatment. Cannot imagine. Hugs. Broken heart.

UC said...

There is no great cancer cure conspiracy, and it's pretty insulting to suggest something like that to those of us who work in cancer research. Cancer isn't like tetanus. It's not a virus or bacteria - it's your own cells gone wrong. Because of that, there's not some magic bullet that will cure all cancer. Every therapy needs to consider not only the type of cancer, but also needs to ( many times) be customized specifically for the patient.

SophiaB said...

Cute avi! Mwah to the puppeh...

SophiaB said...

Look on youtube and netflix. Also, getting off of ALL processed foods. Coffe enemas per Gerson protocol. That is a very strict regimen but can pull people back. I understand that bking soda can realkalise the system look into that.

Her body is acidic. The way to counteract the acidity is to stop feeding it-no sugar, flour, dairy. Raw food diet is amazing-some with major cancer widespread have been able to go into remission. All of this is quite well known. But it is really hard to stay on and hard to get good quality organic veggies. We have been so habituated to crap food and don't realize how sick we are until it is too late. I also think I remember reading about barley grass & wheat grass as very very helpful.

Prayer & pink bubbles... blessings to your friend & her family. It CAN be done. Have faith.

SophiaB said...

Might explain the condition of her hair, which went really dry and old lady recently. Chemo can do that. But her skin is still really good and she seems quite well otherwise...

SophiaB said...

Someone else accused me of snarking due to weird timing on when my two posts showed up (that person really didn't need to come down on me but whatever). And then I misread your post. Like I said-SOMETHING has gone retrograde... i think i have answered you as clearly as I could. We're all good now...

hope you have a better week. Me too! Could use a bit more goodness. Stuck in bed again prepping for a cleanse. Will do anything to get outa this apartment!!! It is almost summer here in BC and I wanna see it!!

SophiaB said...

Glad your prognosis is good. It is still a challenge. Who knows but maybe someday having a health challenge won't be something you need to hide but are fully supported in healing from so you can get back to playing!! What a world.

Yes and insurance is THE DEVIL!! HERE is your quote Sherry. Hadn't made it down this far. It is after 9PST on this long silly day. I am spending way too much time again on CDAN.

dee123 said...

I thought Maggie Smith as well.

SophiaB said...

Yup. It is all about the acidity, which is the breeding ground for illness. Great news and lucky YOU that it was caught so early. Blessings & pink bubbles.

SophiaB said...

No one is saying there is a conspiracy. There ARE alternate methods of addressing cancer that have been violently and vehemently suppressed. Anyone with Google at their disposal can educate themselves as to the challenges of trying to offer different answers to challenging health conditions.

But if you haven't felt personally acknowledge and thanked for your efforts, THANK YOU. I appreciate your hard work and hope it is a successful endeavor. I know cancer is a bitch and I am praying there IS a unifying theory. To me, diet seems basic. Eat real food. Get and stay alkalinized to provide the least hospitable environment for those little boogers. THEN have at it with medical miracle cures. :) we can all live together happily if we love, respect, and appreciate one another. Right??

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Wow this blind is disgusting because it appears to be very self serving (if/when this actress dies of cancer, the blind will be revealed and Enty will get credit for having the scoop). I never have complained about any other blind...but this one just crosses the line for me...

Anonymous said...

Oh my. I can see that the comments on this site are becoming more and more cathartic purges of self disclosure. Maybe Enty needs a talking stick and incense? Can we leave all the cringe worthy self disclosures to more appropriate forums please?

MadamChef said...

Backdoor Farrah talk OK, cancer talk cringe worthy. Gotcha champ, tx for the guidelines.

Since we're talking about cool tricks, have you heard about the one where your eyeballs move up and down? It lets you scroll past stuff you don't care about so you don't annoy people who do. Bonus: you don't become a whiny comment bitch! GOLD STAR!

Hegg said...

Judi Dench? Emma Thompson? Juliette Binoche?

Did I miss something? Jolie didn't have cancer right?

Lazza said...

My 1st guess was Kristin Scott Thomas because she's really private to the point of living in Paris for the past 3 decades because of their regulations on paps. She has a family & has been some of the top films like Mission Impossible & The English Patient.

She works a lot but I do think she takes on many smaller or secondary roles esp a couple of years ago (Bel Ami, Salmon Fishing in Yemen) or leads in smaller films (maybe because they're less demanding)?

But I like French Girl's guess of Emma Thompson.

The only things is Enty says she's back in the US "now" so I take that to mean she's an ex-pat & lives in the US but recouped in her home country.

Neither Thompson nor Thomas live in the US so I guess that rules them out if I'm reading it correctly.

BFIrrera said...

Whoever this is, she shouldn't have to open up about her cancer. It's a private matter between her and her doctors. If she survives, and feels in the future that she can be an inspiration to others in telling her story, then so be it.

I don't think this is an appropriate topic to write gossip about.

@Lila You clearly have not experienced this monster. A good friend of mine passed away 1 year ago. She went from stage 1 to stage 4 in 3 short weeks. Think about going to the Dr believing all is well only to find the diagnosis advanced in the span of a vacation. She left behind a 5 & 3 year old.

@Anothergrayhare, I don't know if you are still checking this thread but while my grandfather was dying from cancer, we did a lot of research on alternative methods and found out about a "ketogenic" diet, or one with limited carbs & sugar, and eating more natural fats. I saw someone talking about diets up there & wanted to chime in. Glucose (from carbs & sugars) feeds cancer cells, so if you lower your body's glucose count, you starve the cancer. I spoke with a few different people personally who swore that a diet like this saved their lives. We were too late (we found it a week before he ended up passing), but after talking to people last month, I know 100% that if I ever get the Big C, I will immediately do a diet like this.

Colleen, thank you for taking the time to write. I'm so sorry you lost your grandfather. I pray you never have to try the diet, and I will certainly forward the info on to our friend's family. It may be too late for her from what we've been told, but you never know. So thank you again.
