Blind Item #7

This actress is A list in her own country and in the rest of the world about a B-. She has been in some huge movies. Blockbusters. She had a huge starring role but after that role didn't work for almost three years because this married A+ list mostly movie actor who likes to always come off as a kind guy blackballed her after she refused to sleep with him while they were making a movie together.

Why would anybody want to work with Tom Hanks???

VIPblonde said...

Freida Pinto; last movies were in 2011. Trying to pick the costar

Unknown said...

This one is going to be difficult to figure out the guy. She probably signed on with a few projects at the same time if they were back-to-back. Those commitments would most likely to be honored... so was it the actor in her last movie, the second last movie, third last movie who blackballed her?

amused bush said...

I was thinking Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou. There is a gap between her US releases Davinci Code and Coco Before Chanel

Carrie Math said...

Rebecca Hall and Ben Affleck. Movie was The Town in 2010. Iron Man 3 was her next film in 2013.

AJ said...

Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou in the Da Vinci Code.

AJ said...

@V Great minds think alike but you beat me to it by a few seconds ;)

Unknown said...

VIP -Despite her being in the DM today not sure it is her. She has only been in one huge hit- Slumdogs which was her first so she didn't work with any A+ nice guys during or before that and no more recent hits.

Unknown said...

This is not Frieda Pinto. she was never a-list in india.

FrenchGirl said...

audrey tautou did some french movies after Da Vinci Code and she only does one or 2 movies per year in France

rebecca hall does some movies after THE TOWN

Not Rebecca Hall. She was doing theatre (and likely more) with Sam Mendes. I like the Tautou/Hanks guess.

FrenchGirl said...

according to IMDB,frieda pinto doesn't fit

PunkRocker said...

I seriously can't believe Tom Hanks is that type of guy. Can't be him....

PunkRocker said...

Maybe I fall for the Mr Nice Guy act.

Kari said...

Mila Jocovich? She was in the resident evil movies

I like Rose Byrne/Brad Pitt(if married...noone.sure)
movie-troy.....didnt really work here again till Get me to the Greek...

amused bush said...

French Girl - for Audrey, I was looking at the gap between movies released in US/overseas. Her film in 2007, released in France, was filmed in 2006, released in 07. Her next film is Coco Before Chanel in 2009.

Unknown said...

Rumor is Hanks did the same thing to Helen Hunt. Might not be him but it totally could be.

FrenchGirl said...

noomi rapace and robert downey junior in Sherlock Holmes 2 ? she doesn't fit : she did 5 movies since

SpunkyPR said...

What was the secret he was blackmailing her with?

AbbeyBruce said...

It is VERY HARD for me to believe 1) someone would not sleep with Brad Pitt if given the opportunity and 2) That Brad Pitt would stoop to those levels and not just find someone else.

FrenchGirl said...

@V: Audrey tautoo works in France,she does french movies (she did 2 foreign movies in all her career) and she's C list in the world

Black.BALLING..completely diff.
means....spoke poorly of,told people in industry not to hire her

amused bush said...

French Girl, I know she works in France...duh ;)

However, many of her films get "art house" releases overseas (aka, the US).

amused bush said...

gypsygirl - what about Casanova and Marie Antoinette? I think both were 2005/06 timeframe?

FrenchGirl said...

diane kruger and ...? And i don't think Kruger is A list in Germany (she never did german movies)

FrenchGirl said...

@V: honestly...i don't know
Weinstein loves to release french prestige movies every year

AJ said...

I still think it's Audrey.

Amelia ( A French Film ) is the highest grossing French language film EVER released. She had some smaller movie hits in France & the UK but this is her biggest foreign film. If I remember correctly she even one awards for the UK film.

The Da Vinci Code ( her other big hit ) was the 2nd highest grossing movie of 2006 despite its reviews. The movie itself was filmed in 2005 and released in 2006.

She has one movie from 2007 that was probably set in motion around he same time she booked the Da Vinci Code. From 2007 - 2009 there's nothing.

The 3 years could be slightly plus or minus to fudge the details slightly.

AJ said...

One more thought, perhaps Audrey was blacklisted for American films. I would think it would be harder for that to happen in her native country since she is considered A List there.

JoElla said...

I dunno gang, I have a feeling that Tom Hanks has some pretty interesting blinds or gossip that hasn't come to light.

Which is sad, because I used to love him so.

leemonada76 said...

Jackie chan for the man

PunkRocker said...

Kate Winslet popped into my head for some reason....A list in England still but maybe b list in america?? Not been in much lately but she is preggers....

Kristin Wigs said...

Sienna Miller had a 3 year gap in work from 2009-2012, right after GI Joe. Dennis quaid and Channing both starred along with her.

Though I can't imagine Sienna passing up a chance to sleep with a married man, the timeline fits.

NomNom83 said...

Who has the clout and the determination to rule over the international film industry?

If she's foreign and got blackballed here, I get that. But also keeping her from making movies in France/Spain/England/India/Australia/etc.? That's some Illuminati bullshi --- oh, wait, maybe it IS Tom Hanks!

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

It certainly seems to fit Tom Hanks and Audrey Tatou. If you look at the premiere pics for DaVinci, their body language is not friendly for the most part. In addition, they had no chemistry w each other in the movie and Audrey Tatou seemed to be blamed more often than Hanks in the poor reviews.

lazyday603 said...

Rebecca Hall has averaged three films a year since her debut Starter For 10 in 2006. Plus she did the TV miniseries Parades End. If she's being blackballed it must be somebody like Corey Feldman with zero pull in the industry trying to slow down her career.

PunkRocker said...

Rebbeca hall is not A List here in England. She's c list. Not her. She's known but def not A list. Sienna Miller would sleep with anything but still b list in england.

PunkRocker said...

Penelope cruz...still big in spain?? I don't know

Eros said...

I like the milla jovanovich sp? guess

Unknown said...

Someone who worked with Adam Sandler?

CanadianMiss said...

Blackball for a blue ball. Seems fair.

Unknown said...

Like Paz Vegas, who I think is a prettier Penelope Cruz who also speaks better English

PunkRocker said...

Maybe Enty needs to check the english press more...

AJ said...

Absolutely ! I've always been a fan of here and I remember those premiere pictures. She looked painfully uncomfortable with him.

It's sad, because I've been a Tom Hanks fan most of my life and it's disheartening to think it's him but the clues fit.

I just remind myself that actors are people too :/ I try to think of them like musians. Enjoy their art but ignore the hoopla of their lives. It's was the only way I could love Clapton after reading biographies about him and discovering what a douche he has been at times.

PunkRocker said...

Pen cruz but who has she worked with. Her sister is big in spain too. Think it may be her

crila16 said...

I'm on board with the Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou in the Da Vinci Code

Anonymous said...

I LOVE Audrey Tautou. She's one of my style icons. Sex with Tom Hanks would be like getting jiggy with a wrinkly elbow.

Unknown said...

@Suzie P

Tell me more about Hanks and Hunt.

ND said...

Not Kate Winslet. She's A list everywhere. Just landed the US Vogue cover for the second time. Pretty much everyone knows her and I still can't believe she's considered B list here. Wtf. Plus she didn't stop working after Titanic - she did Hideous Kinky, Holy Smoke, and Quills. She had all high profile roles after her Oscar win. She has four new movies, one of which is coming out this year and she's been to big festivals for it. Might even get her 7th Oscar nomination.

I agree with the Tautou/Hanks guess.

8====D KermitGossnellKnobjob said...

Mónica Cruz is NOT big in spain. She is just penélope's sister (although some like me think she is prettier and better actress and way better dancer) to most people. She hasn't done anything since "un paso adelante" (shitty series about dancers who fucked).

Tautou is more than C in spain, she is in several commercials with her name in them. If she were a C, her name would be harder to find.

FrenchGirl said...

Da Vinci Code premiere was at Cannes fest and the movie has been booed

FitzroyHipster said...

Dunno about Rose Byrne, she's had a better career OS than in Oz, we hardly see her in anything over here. Nor does she really do anything Australian.

EmiChan said...

Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp??

EmiChan said...

Michelle Monahan and ??

EastCoaster said...

I hope the guy will be exposed. But if it's Tom Hanks, I'll probably throw up!
