Blind Item #15

That sobriety thing is out the window right now for this permanent A list mostly movie actor who is an Academy Award winner/nominee. He called his now former public girlfriend more of a sober coach than girlfriend. He is back on the booze now in a big way.

And Lindsey Shookus

Ophelia said...

I agree Tricia....but I don't agree with Enty that Affleck is perm A list..

sandybrook said...

Poor Snookums. Where's the nanny?

VDOVault said...

If it is Affleck please someone keep him out of tattoo parlors & spare us all the sight of further heinous ink. Thank you.

Unknown said...

He’s cracking up. I predict he’ll do a Paul Walker, get out of sight and enjoy spending his fortune on old granddaddy.

Swinfa said...

That tattoo should be all the birth control he needs... who would seal the deal with him after eyeing that monstrosity?

Spider Rico said...

He should be encouraged. By him a two beer baseball moose hat with a funnel.

Guesser said...

Snookums actually thought he was going to be a faithful, sober boyfriend. Ha ha on you. He gets a stripper and a drink as soon as she turns around same as every other woman he had.

Brayson87 said...

Can we just bring Michael Keaton back for Batman already, enough of these posers.

sandybrook said...

You know Justin Theroux has a very disgusting back tattoo too. Just one more thing they have in common.

mooshki said...

Sandy, remember when Affleck lied and said the tattoo was fake for a movie? What a doofus.

mooshki said...

(That was a rhetorical question, in case that wasn't obvious. I just still find it very amusing.)

Ronaldus Magnus said...

@VDOVAult

Bwahahahahaaahaaaaa!!! That tat haunts my dreams.

sandybrook said...

Yeah he did say it was fake at first when everybody was laughing at him mooshki. I guess his ego couldn't handle it or he was denying he went on a bender.

DDonna Tarttty said...

His "former public girlfriend"? So Shookus was really just a front to make him look stable while he was sleeping with the babysitter and presumably others?

HeatherBee said...

Awww, Lindz, you got the boot AND demoted. Maybe you’ll have better luck with your next alcoholic, serial cheating boyfriend.

Amartel said...

Honestly, does anyone actually care about Affleck? Did you ever? He and his pale moon-faced boyhood pal parlayed that one screenplay (that you know someone else had to fix) into massive careers and I just don't get either one of them. They're generic and boring. The best role Affleck ever played was early on in Dazed and Confused when he played the school bully. He was actually quite good in that role. Other than that it's been bland, manufactured, by-the-numbers "movie star" career. I don't even care if he's addicted, off the wagon, running amok with porn stars, having a meltdown. It occurs to me that he does this in order to be interesting and break of the tedium that is his life so maybe get out of his way.

Unknown said...

This is truly sad. He has 3 kids and they need a healthy father. I pray he gets his shit together and the new woman he’s seeing doesn’t enable him

Shookie keyed his Bentley and Range Rover before she fled. Don't suppose it was because he found out he didn't need to pay that extra head child support after all?

Unknown said...

Link?

Halloweenie said...

Funny how people can have everything. Money, good looks, talent, a gorgeous family and throw that all away to get drunk/high. People in Hollywood are so very lucky but they never seem to appreciate or realize it.

nancer said...

so was all that gossip about jennifer hating her bullshit? seems to me she'd like someone trying to keep that fat, no-talent pus bag sober.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Affeck was good in "Gone Girl," won't deny. I couldn't believe people liked him as Batman, though, I thought he was bad though the scripts for BvS and JL were terrible.

But Affleck doesn't have "it" on screen. He's not a Movie Star. Damon has it a little more, or at least he used to, but neither of them would've been anything in the 60s or 70s. TV guys at best.

William Goldman ("Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid," "The Princess Bride," etc.) really wrote their Oscar-winning "Good Will Hunting" script, though he denies it. Those two clowns have been groomed for a long time but they're through now, back tattoo or not.

ComeTheApocalypseI'mInCharge said...

Pics of the Bentley with a full side scratch Bobbie, and the Rabfe Rover driver door. I'd think he will cry more for the Bentley than the loss of a bed warmer.

Guesser said...

@Ddonna, Enty had several blinds calling her the public girlfriend. Way back in the day,Ben was this site's mascot.

DDonna Tarttty said...

He looks terrible in those pix from DM. Let him be Oh-verrrr, please.

Olivia said...

I don’t know man ... Enty is most definitely slacking... all of these “blinds” are obvious or I already read about them on public gossip sites... he’s really scrounging to be honest or just taking the stories from other sites ... Disappointing

Amy said...

Thought the same. Puffy face, eyes looked small and lifeless and then he had all crap down his top on their 'dinner date.'

Neal M said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I had to google the tattoo - if you have not seen it I highly recommend taking a look!
Was it supposed to be a dragon or a peacock? It looks like a peacock, and that seems to fit him perfectly.

Ben Affleck was photographed appearing to get a delivery of alcoholic beverages on Monday after Playboy model Shauna Sexton spent the night at his house.

Affleck was seen outside of his home wearing a dark gray T-shirt and light gray sweatpants as he received a Pacifico beer-branded box filled with what appeared to be Johnnie Walker Blue Label scotch whisky in a blue case and some other unidentifiable bottles.

While the Justice League star, 46, has been in ongoing treatment for alcohol addiction, Playboy’s May 2018 Playmate, 22, told the magazine her go-to drink is “whiskey all day.”

DoNotWant said...

Guess he won't be hosting SNL anymore.

Swinfa said...

It’s a shitbird... his spirit animal.

Marlin said...

I totally agree with you. I never got the Affleck or the Damon attraction. Neither can really act. Tho i liked Damon in the Departed Dont think either one is an attractive man either.

emeraldcity said...

Jen is playing this very well by not divorcing him, he will eventually kill himself and she will have title to a % if not all the royalties on every project he took part in during their marriage. I am assuming they are still married because I haven't heard anything to the contrary.

Boots said...

Don't you remember the Jennifer Garner phoenix rising tattoo umbrage quote from Vanity Fair:

"One thing is for sure: she refuses to claim responsibility for the midlife-crisis tattoo—the rising phoenix—that takes up her estranged husband’s entire back, as seen in photographs. “You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart.’ A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?” Garner says with a wink.

“I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”

Hotmessmidwest said...

Dude has addictions and nothing is going to help him unless he hits rock bottom or moves out of Hweird. Toxic environment.

Unknown said...

Brad Pitt/ Jennifer Anniston

Unknown said...

Ben Affleck is DEFINITELY not a Permanent A LIST... He's a permanent douchebag though, that's for sure.

AwkwardTurtle said...

E News had a picture of him getting a crate of liquor delivered to his house. If they delivered alcohol where I lived that would cut down on half my trips to the grocery store.

Boo Hearne said...

Having grown up in a Southern liquor dynasty, Johnny Walker isn't something to scoff at. It's good drinkin'! Back in the 50s. Who in tarnation drinks the stuff now? Obviously, Mr. Ben.

Haloweenie, you hit the nail on the head and nailed it into the coffin of virtually every 'Star' that ever came out of Hollywood. The price of fame out there is that you sell your Soul, your Heart, your future, your sanity. I, too, liked Matt a lot in The Departed. A fabulous, wonderful film. Everyone in it shone from within with brilliance.

Today's headlines about Kevin Spacey brought me to tears--again. Talk about a man who had it all and, instead of being thankful to the Talent Spirits, he hurt people all over the world. My friends, back in the 90s, in NYC used to tell people, "Boo is joining us tonight for dinner. DO NOT bring up Kevin Spacey! She is his #1 Spacey cadet! She will go on till Dawn talking about every role in films and on Broadway." And I would!

OB said...

Anybody who has followed Ben's career since the beginning can see how booze has ravaged his good looks. He was really a cutie in "School Ties" (the first time I remember ever seeing him); now you can see the difference big time.

I was just watching JLo on tv and reading this blind reminded me of the one and only time I ever saw him (and JLo, the Bennifer era) in person.

At the infamous Sox/Yankees game where Pedro tossed Don Zimmer to the ground. We were sitting about ten rows directly behind them and in one od the most exciting Sox/Yanks games of the year I missed the entire game including the fight since I was watching the two of them thru my binoculars the whole time.

For the record she was gorgeous. He was in the hair-looks-like-a-bristly-rug phase but looked good too. And they looked like they were in a real relationship--you can tell a lot stalking thru binos for 3+ hours

Cee Kay said...

I get that this is supposed to be Ben, but this whole thing is bull. Permanent A list? GTFO Enty. Plus, it was widely reported previously that he and LS used to go drinking together.

Boo Hearne said...

THIS JUST IN: 10 PM NYC Time

Jen staged an intervention today and Ben has agreed to check into rehab. Photo of them in a car. Whew! She is thinking of their children, not Ben. Prayers!

JL said...

No way is Shookus's kid Ben's. His daughters have those loooong legs. Shookus's daughter's legs are squat, just like her daddy's.

Madame_ovary said...

@Unknown I wanted to say Aniston and Pitt as well, but I got hung up on "former public girlfriend". If it were Pott, wouldn't it say former wife?

Madame_ovary said...

*Pitt

Neal M said...

Yes, breaking news Jen went over and scooped up Ben to take to rehab.
The whole thing reeks of attention/pity seeking and manipulation on Ben's part. The whole let me order a bunch of booze and have it delivered right in front of the paparazzi, and I'll come out to the gate instead of letting you in where they won't see it.
I bet there was more than one drunk phone call from Ben to Jen as well. Kind of pathetic, but he is that kind of guy.

Jane Doe said...

Surely he’s being ironic by referring to Shookus as “sober.” I’m gonna miss her.

HeatherBee said...

God bless Jen, good luck Ben, and see ya later Lindz. And poor Shauna, we hardly got to know ye!

Aoife said...

Garner can pick him up and deliver him to rehab all she wants. Until he hits HIS rock bottom she's wasting her time and (someone's) money.

As for the 22 year old there's a reason men like Affleck want to date women barely out of their teens.

Jack In The Box or whatever fast food place they went to? A snack would be a high end Japanese restaurant like Nobu or a Korean BBQ place not someplace I can take myself.

She got it wrong. She is the Phoenix, rising from the ashes of every mistake he's made. That's why it had to be so BIG.

totaji said...

Were you all born under a rock. This is the oldest story. Rich man who has it all, over indulges and becomes a victim of his vices and own bad behavior. It’s not a sob story and I don’t feel bad for him but most would succumb to the same. We read about it everyday on here. Rinse and repeat.

Marlin said...

I dont either. No talent. No screen presence

Cuddlebutt said...

Back in the day anyone winning a major award, Oscar, Emmy, Grammy got permanent A status on this site. Going by old standards, Ben is def A.

Sara, Making It Work said...

"Sober coach" lol

Simon said...

Well, he’s back in rehab! For the millionth time.

Viking Song said...

He and Damon were good in Dogma.

Ewahwoowah said...

I like Jennifer Garner a lot. She seems a supportive woman.

CJ said...

This guy appeared in a couple of pretty good movies, Argo and Gone Girl, not that long ago. That looks like the peak of his career (although as a poster mentioned, Dazed and Confused was probably the best movie he ever appeared in, but he wasn't the star). His father was a major league alcoholic so he's going down a familiar path. Not too much sympathy here. This guy is too dumb to know how lucky he was.

longtimereader said...

Ben, get in contact someone who genuinely loves you and will help you get sane and sober, kevin smith.

plot said...

Damon was pretty amazing in the Bourne flicks. As action heroes go, his was awfully well acted though he didn't have to. Bourne is a curiosity to a lot of PR and marketing folks because it attracted equal numbers of men and women, which no other action flick has accomplished. That is down to how Damon played the character, I think.

Ben's problem is he really doesn't like acting, I feel. He might not even enjoy directing. He only truly enjoys drinking and gambling.

Em Lew said...

Who know's what his upbringing was like. He had an alcoholic father who apparently sobered up and as a child he and his brother were getting into acting, there has been plenty of dodgy stuff revealed with child actors. Just because someone appears to have it all on the outside and has never revealed anything, doesn't mean they don't have terrible experiences that they can't confront and try and cover up with drink, sex etc. I'm not excusing the hurt he's caused to others but there maybe some deep seated reason why he drinks.
