Today's Blind Items - The Junkie

It is sad. It s always sad when someone with as much talent as this actress gets hooked on some really bad drugs. She is an Academy Award winner/nominee. Beautiful. She has offspring. She also uses heroin almost everyday and spends about $500 a day on the drug. When you think about how someone very close to her died it makes this even more tragic. There she was the other day trying to celebrate an ad campaign that made her look even more beautiful. The classic look from her that people have come to know so well. She is a shell of that person now. She is probably B+. A few years ago before she really started using frequently she would have been A-. She has been in movies and television. She made her fame in television. She showed off her acting skills as a movie actress. The other night under the harsh lights, there was not enough body makeup to cover the tracks on her legs. There they were on the back of them as she tried an awkward sideways walk down the red carpet. People asked to each other why she didn't wear pants. Did she think they wouldn't notice? She was a mess. Shaking from being out of the country and not being able to get as much as she usually could. Trying to make do with other things. She had to be there. She thought no one would notice anything different about her. They did.

Michelle Williams

nice one@SB!!

Michelle Williams seems right for this. On a possibly related note, Jason Segel hasn't been the same since he was in a relationship with her.

misch said...

Michelle…after what happened to Heath..geez

Dave S. said...

Michelle Williams? Started off on Dawson's Creek, then movies, and death of Heath Ledger.

Derek Harvey said...

Great guess Sandy! Was never a fan of hers----she seems full of herself. I hope all that money that was donated to Matilda by other actors is not getting shoved up her arm.

sandybrook said...

Unfortunately thx @Tricia and Derek. I saw her fashion layout the other day and I thought she looked beautiful better than she ever did but photoshopped stuff I guess.

brin said...

IKR?!

Ivee said...

True, Tricia 17. Segal seems like a shell of his former self. Rumor had it that Michelle Williams broke up with him because of his alcohol abuse. Terribly sad if this BI is about Michelle Williams, but she was the first person I thought of while reading it.

oogabooga said...

Really sad. I like her.

i saw her in 'Cabaret' with Alan Cummings not too long ago & she was in revealing outfits-nothing looked amiss(i was in the 3rd row & you can see everything) & she was onstage @ a high level for almost every single scene.She was very energetic,engaging & in good form..just saying...

misch said...

also Michelle wouldn't allow Heath to be with their daughter without supervision, and I thought she broke up with Jason because of his drug use. I hope it's not her

Planet J said...

+1
My first thought,also. Poor girl..and her daughter. That makes me sad.

Rory said...

Michelle is in Paris right now or so Getty Images tells me. The last two events she was wearing short dresses. You can only see the front of her legs in all of them, so who knows. I don't see any evidence of an awkward side shuffle in the photos but the details all seem to align unfortunately :-/ I just....man, her daughter. I can't even imagine.

Mooshki said...

Jason Segel was headed downhill well before he got together with her. In fact, he pulled himself together quite a bit for her. I can't stand her, but you can't blame her for his messes.

Bailey said...

The Guardian UK's review of Michelle's performance in Suite Francais:

And playing Lucile … well, Williams looks like she’s got access to serious amounts of black-market Mogadon cut with Temazepam. Her French character is lumbered with that kind of classy English accent that slo-oo-ows US actors down, and she sleepwalks through each scene in a blank-faced torpor.

El said...

@BackAgain - I saw her in Cabaret too - she was awful. SO lackluster and uninteresting. Luckily Alan Cumming is so riveting it barely mattered but really, his performance totally saved her.

TheCousinEddy said...

Just to be different: Carey Mulligan. Can't pinpoint a someone close to her that would have died from drug use, but everything else seems to fit. Especially the fact that her look has drastically changed from the cute pixie-cut blonde from a few years ago to the drab, morose-looking shell of her former self, today. Whoever it is, it is tragic.

Jess Sayin' said...

Jason has never really solved his demons, despite his evident talent. He's still not really over Linda Cardellini dumping him because he was "too fat", IMO.

back again said...

wow, that's wierd b/c she had energy when we saw it when it first opened -true,she was almost trying to keep up w/Alan but he's always good & has such great stage presence,that didn't surprise me--she didnt seem to be using but sounds like she could've been from what you witnessed==

back again said...

Carey doesn't have offspring though..Remember that sad Blind about her marriage etc. awhile back?

shine a light said...

Sadness.....hard to believe after what happened to her man. ...maybe she never got over him and is self medicating her pain?..
Poor matilda.......this is like a Kurt Cobain/Frances Bean/Courtney Love situation. ...

Patrick said...

I feel like his downward spiral started this last time with the failure of his last few films. He isn't in demand anymore. Now that he's off HIMYM, which he clearly thought he was too good for, his career won't go anywhere. I think the realization of this, combined with more money than he knows what to do with, isn't going to go well for him.

back again said...

well...he still has his puppets to keep him warm at night.

juice721 said...

Maybe Maggie Gyllenhaal - worked with Heath Ledger on Batman, started in TV, nominated for supporting actress oscar and has two kids. Recently wore socks with sandals to a Miu Miu screening. Looked high as did her husband.

back again said...

Fwiw, Michelle looks fine in her pictures @Louis Vuitton & @ the Suite Francais Opening...actually Jennifer Connelly looks sicklier than Michelle Williams in their pics together.

Veronica said...

Damn hell I miss Heath Ledger.

Nancer said...

I love Michelle Williams. Anyone see "The Last Waltz?" She can act. She's a very good actress. Oh, and "Blue Valentine." She made me cry in that one. I thought her too when I read this but I just have a hard time seeing her as a drug addict. I just can't think of anyone else who fits. Wish I could!

back again said...

@Nancer, do you mean "I'm Not There"..if so,yes & yes.Blue Valentine really saddened me-she was good in it-tough to watch though

macaroniandcheese said...

This seems very Michelle Williams-y to me. I can't imagine she'd slip into this lifestyle given her past with Heath, but sometimes the lovers of addicts can slip and fall themselves.

Malibuborebee said...

Heath and Jason - both addicts - no surprise that she's one too and that's what she goes for in a partner.

However, with all the heroin use going around it could be almost anyone.

Hegg said...

Everyone thinking the same thing!
I heard she was in rehab twice last year so she does seem to be at least trying and understands that there is a problem.

French girl said...

Her character is a calm character

aemish said...

PLEASE let there be an actors intervention..

vodianova said...

Sounds exactly like Michelle Williams. She kinda looks like a shell of her former self. Really sad if it's true. :(

LeahRai said...

Oh god! I really hope this isnt Williams. Poor Matilda. If she loses both parents to drugs... hopefully Heath's parents will get her.

Nancer said...

I meant "Take This Waltz". Duh me.
