Blind Item #8 - Just Plain Nasty - An INSIDERHER Blind Item

Around 1990, I was invited regularly to the home of a famous super agent.

I thought he was a great guy! One thing he did, for friends & clients, was having regular movie nights at his Beverly Hills home. There were drinks, food, and then a film that had yet to be released. Usually, someone at the party was in the screened flick.

These movie nights were for fun & bonding between Super Agent & his clients.

They were social & networking events, not thinly disguised business meetings.

Which is what made it so strange when this A list, or was A list at the time-actor showed up early, had a hissy fit, and wouldn’t leave!

My first reaction was: ‘His feet are tiny!’

He’s not a tall man, but I swear, he was wearing sneakers that looked like they were made for a 12 year old. His face was red with rage.

Guests started coming in, and Super Agent was trying to get the Angry Man to simmer down, out to leave & see him the next day at his office. Angry Man continued to act like a real jerk, and finally Super Agent managed to get him outside.

I’d tried to diffuse Angry myself with a casual conversation. He didn’t even turn to look at me. Just stared straight ahead. Whew! Rude!

So, when stories about Angry Man being a well known creep started coming out, I wasn’t surprised. I’m surprised there aren’t more!

I’d believe the worst about this guy. It was way too close an encounter.

TomCruise?

Tom Cruise as the angry man?

Tricia13 said...

Bryan Lourd sounds like the Agent.

Richard Dreyfus

Did you tell him your amazing shrimp story and how you're vegan?

Joe Pesci

nancer said...

dreyfus because of the 'close encounter' reference. and he IS tiny. and an asshole, allegedly.

Glue said...

Oh wait. Good guess @totaji
Richard Dreyfus sounds good too! Or Dustin Hoffman.

Unknown said...

Tiny angry man, definitely Tom. Personally I like him. He's a closet case but I haven't heard anything about him being a pedo, so that's a big plus in my book. He's also has done some amazing film work, even though he plays himself in almost every movie he makes. As for being a creeper? Well he's gay, who hires long term beards, so again not buying him being inappropriate around women. If it wasn't for being the figurehead for Scio he'd have a staring rep. However his giant ego won't let him let go, even though the cult is obviously dying on it's ass and destroying his legacy.

I was told a story by a friend who said he got his ass kicked by Smokey Robinson's son at a party at Vidal Sassoon's house and was run out of town when he sued.

Anyone know that one?

Yeah, I came here to say what totaji was saying. Dreyfus. Nancer is right-- he's a notorious ass. Called out for harassment recently. Would have been promoting Postcards From The Edge or What About Bob? around that time.

Red Photography said...

Ari Emanuel for the agent, or is that too obvious?

nonyabusiness said...

What are you all doing guessing Tom Cruise? It says the guy was A list at the time, meaning he no longer is. Tom Cruise is still considered A list.

Mah said...

Boredatwork-your comment is exponentially more entertaining than this person's three "blinds" put together.

cc423 said...

Much better INSIDERHER... I forgive you for the lame OJ blind.

Anonymous said...

That time someone got mad at a party is a bind item?

Marlin said...

That was my guess. Close encounters

Imsoconfused said...

Seriously! These are so stupid! Shrimp shrimp shrimp 🍤 😏

Unknown said...

@boredatwork, that's a silly question. Of course she told him she was vegan.

Mad Hominem said...

Speaking of tiny, angry men...

Back when I was in univ., there was a joke that made the media during a lot of film festivals: "Whoops!...I just stepped on Mel Gibson!" People were repeatedly surprised at how short he was/is. (NTTAWWT.)

It wouldn't surprise me if his feet where that small back in 1990.

Boldblonde said...

Apparently so @Saintpat

hothotheat said...

Ari is an angry little man himself. I doubt he sees anything wrong with this behavior.

Brayson87 said...

Richard Dreyfuss is a possible, there are accusations out against him and the timeline fits. He's also bipolar so that behavior would match with being manic.

filmfanb said...

I like the Pesci one

riffer73 said...

Sheesh - Not everything can be pedophilia.

Mad Hominem said...

@Brayson87 —

He's also bipolar so that behavior would match with being manic.

He migh tbe bipolar. But he might just be a dick.

Sara, Making It Work said...

My 12 year old nephew has size 11 feet.

cc423 said...

Not even looking at someone speaking to you sounds just like something Tiny Tom would do.

Brayson87 said...

@Mad, oh he's definitely bipolar:

"In 2006, Dreyfuss discussed his diagnosis of bipolar disorder in the documentary Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, in which Fry (who also has the disorder) interviewed Dreyfuss about his experience with the disorder.[45]"

plot said...

Yep, Scios' first lesson is how to stare at an object without blinking, without reacting to any stimulus, for a few hours. That would fit for tiny tom. Is he known for throwing tantrums though?

Lala said...

I hate to hear the Richard Dreyfuss guesses, just as I hated to hear about his pervy behaviour, because I ran into him outside the Alamo, of all places, and he was very friendly to me and my children, who were little at the time. He was interested in history and talked about Sam Houston.

J said...

Michael Ovitz for the agent. Not very interesting stuff, though.

Being at a party where someone is present and acts weirdly isn't the stuff of Homeric epic.

Rosie riveter said...

Lol

VikingSong said...

I think this is Gibson, tbh.

one_eyed_bob said...

I like these InsiderHer blinds. They aren't scandalous but if you put yourself in her position you can understand these situation would have been shocking.

Unknown said...

Careful, don't let Bryan Singer know....

Newbomb said...

Emmanuel Lewis.

Tricia13 said...

😂😂😂😂boredatworkwinstheday!!!

tinydancer61 said...

Is it a requirement in Hollywood that you have to be short?? I've seen a few of these stars and they are always tiny, tiny little people.

ladybugmo1 said...

I find this way more interesting that blinds about who the teen mom’s boyfriends are fucking.

TriciaJr said...

Sounds like Piven

ckpsjp said...

Sean Penn just to be different.

Gylly said...

Steven Seagal, A list at the time? Small feet, big shoes....

More Cowbell said...

In 1990 Michael Ovitz would have been the super agent.

SkittleKitty said...

FFS, "close an encounter" and Dreyfuss is known as both short and an ass.
Case closed for the actor.
Ovitz fits timeline for agent.

Amy said...

I knew there was a reason that I always disliked Dreyfus. There is something very unsavoury about him.

IanPhlegming said...

Signing to say hahahahahahah

Gylly said...

FFS. Ok.

Itttt said...

I don't mind the INSIDERHER blinds, although the handle is reading INSIDE HER in my mind. In any case, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY better than the DB Douche Bag Dancing BitchBaby blinds...

fionafab said...

One of the forbidden subjects when interviewing Dreyfuss is, for some strange reason, WHAT ABOUT BOB. He won't talk about it. Does Enty know why?

kelli grrrl said...

I'm commenting too late for anybody to notice or care, but when I was a kid I had an issue of Mad magazine. They did a spoof on a movie Dreyfuss was in, but named him "Richard Dryface." Needless to say, he's been Richard Dryface to me ever since. (Also, John Travolta = John Revolta.)

plot said...

Mad Magazine taught some of us how to read . What a memory you stirred there!

Southern Man said...

Tom is NOT known for tantrums.
Mel is. He's not particularly short though.
Dreyfus certainly- and the last sentence points his way.

Camal19 said...

Definitely Richard Dreyfus...too close of an encounter..."Close Encounters of the Third Kind".

So the person is basing this one incident on the Richard Dreyfus's personality as a whole? That's a little judgy wudgy. Maybe he was just having a really bad day...and he's a hot headed kind of guy. I'm sometimes a little hot headed too.

Unknown said...

I was an extra on a short-lived show called The Education of Max Bickford when I was 15. I accidentally forgot to walk across the screen with my tray to kick off a cafeteria scene. Richard Dreyfus snapped at me!
