Poor Ben

hothotheat said...

Is Ben permanent though? I thimk it would describe him as more than an actor since his AA nom and wins are for other than acting.

I'm going with Al Pacino. He seems unstable.

andrea said...

That’s messed up if true. Jen needs to take a step back from the PR and isolate the kids away for now.

sandybrook said...

yeah Enty made Ben permanent A at about the same time he made Jen A list mostly movies.

Unknown said...

Brad Pitt.

yepthatsme said...

Ben is permanent A list coz of his oscar win. And as far fetched this sounds I think it might be true! He is treating rehab as a day spa by coming home everyday, and his new girlfriend is, in her own words "starting to get serious with the papz", so she will not miss an opportunity to be mentioned! Combine all this and it makes for a disaster!

News said...

Written as if it was Ben, if only he had more support, he has always been/looked weak and troubled the only thing that kept him safe and stable was Jen, so it is just a matter of time to get eorse off.

GeeWallyThatWouldBeWrong said...

Wealthy, famous and drowning in self-pity. That's just wrong, stop it.

Brayson87 said...

Isn't this every parent when their kids drive them nuts? Thought Sylvia Plath was a shake'n'bake chicken for awhile there ;)

HeatherBee said...

Hey anonymous tipster, why don’t you contact social services anonymously?

Amartel said...

What about the "show me the money" guy from that Tom Cruise movie? Is he A list? Because if that's the criteria then he should be because he won an Oscar.

Amartel said...

This list criteria is whatever the gossip columnist wants it to be.
So there's a lot of fiction involved.
Ben Affleck is not a natural movie star. He's a manufactured product and they might be able to make repairs and rehabilitate him for future use so for now he remains "A" list.

sandybrook said...

Cuba Gooding Jr is not even A list anymore

It's Ben Affleck and he's been suicidal for years. His depression started pretty much around the time he was ridiculed over Gigli. I hope he gets the treatment he needs.

nancer said...

There was a recent BI where Ben was the answer, and he was also permanent A, pretty sure. I think Enty considers him that.

J said...

Oh no! The future of cinematic art hangs in the balance.

Jon said...

That's questional parenting right there.

shakey said...

Yeah, we don't need to know that. Did Jennifer Garner leak that?

UniversalEnergy said...

Ben is in the book The Bisexual's Guide to the Universe. He was interviewed by the author and said he was bisexual. I wouldn't doubt if some of his depression comes from living a heteronormative life while repressington the gay side of him because I highly doubt Jennifer would allow him to be sexual with men.

BlissBoo said...

If Ben is saying these things in front of his kids, they can 5150 his ass and get him into the hospital. No more pussy-footing around with this guy if he's a danger to himself and to others.

Fred84 said...

Johnny Depp?

PoliticallyIncorrect71 said...

Clooney

DejaBlue said...

Heatherbee, anyone can call social services, you don't have to be family or even tangentially related or even know them. If you suspect abuse, you can make the call.

OB said...

Wasn't there something--I think it was related to recordings made in the New Orleans house, but I'm not sure--about an A-list actor whose drinking problem was based on tapes of him with a pre-teen? And lots of us guessed it was Ben?

He hasn't been himself for a few years, and maybe someone has been hassling him about what they know/have
(just speculation on my part, so please don't "conspiracy" me). And this caused/is causing him to go off the rails...

Who knows, but its a pretty drastic thing to do

Unknown said...

I'm on the Brad Pitt bandwagon. Ugly divorce is ugly.

Jon said...

It doesn't say he said it in front of his kids.

Nichole Lafayette said...

That’s exactly what it says.

Ophelia said...

Mac Miller dead at 26 RIP

Brayson87 said...

@OB, the theories were between him and Depp.

Viking Song said...

J once again proving that he's nothing more than an asinine twunt.

Brayson87 said...

@Ophelia, overdose, wonder if it's more fentanyl?

SteveD said...

Damn, Ariana's current bf is suicidal and the last one dies?

4 months shy of Club 27.

Jon said...

I read it as he said to someone, "I'm going to kill myself in front of my kids", not that he walked up to his kids and said "Im going to kill myself." Did I take this blind all the way wrong?

OB said...

Thanks @Brayson I didn't bookmark it for future reference but now I remember. It could be Ben, Depp or Pitt--all 3 meet the criteria

Ophelia said...

@Brayson good question.

Regardless of what she accomplishes in life now she's already got all the pieces for a Lifetime movie: Schneider Days, Donut Licking Controversy, Manchester, "whirlwind romance" with Pete, Mac's overdose, and whatever happens to Pete.

J said...

Actually, sounds like something Mr. Viking Song would say, had he the nerve.

ardleighstreet said...

Whoever this is, needs a 5150 hold. I know it's not for long but it might be long enough to help them out.

CJ said...

Ophelia, good observation. It could be Arianna: The Series with all those episodes. I wouldn't watch, but it writes itself.

yepthatsme said...

Ariana Grandes ex died of an apparent drug overdose!

Kimberley said...

I thought Brad Pitt, but Ben looks likely.

BlissBoo said...

@Jon, the blind meant that whoever it is said it in FRONT of his kids. "I'm going to kill myself".

Nice Illuminati sacrifice for Grande with Mac Miller. Didn't she just release some music? His death will extend her PR for awhile. Always something with that chick.

Pope of Hollywood said...

This is Alec Baldwin

J said...

She can light more candles than ever now.

pixiegothy said...

+1 @Blissboo right, Ariana is going to use another death/tragedy for publicity. If I were Pete I would be far away from her as possible, he will probably the next one, that girl is bad news

rosie riveter said...

Lololol

TRICIA WHERE ARE YOU

Brayson87 said...

I'm still pulling for evil Ariana, the villainess with the innocent face. Schneider didn't f*ck her, she f*cked him, spitted that fat pig over a table. Those peasants were lucky to eat her donuts. Davidson is just another toy she keeps around because it's fun to see how many drugs she can pump in him before he dies. Miller had to go because he was about to spill the beans, and there are no happy endings in her kingdom, not for anyone else at least. ;)

kingkurtis said...

john mccain
and he;s ...GONE!

pwal said...

This is a thoroughly sad blind, mainly because men are very likely to follow through on it. Maybe it was said while under the influence, which made me think Ben Affleck or Matt McConaughey (given the blind about an A-List actor ingesting a synthetic edible, which always seems infinitely more dangerous than authentic drugs). It could be Vince Vaughn, given that he's being charged for DUI, but dude has been arrested before, so I can't see this breaking him down to that level. Although things seem to be at peace, relatively speaking, concerning the Jolie-Pitt divorce, but Burt Reynolds' death (and the Burt/Loni divorce rehash) could have triggered Brad Pitt, since he lost two friends last year (Brad Grey and Chris Cornell) and he's seeing some resolving their divorces quickly (Nia Vadalos) or enduring never-ending mediation regarding custody (Gwen and Gavin). The only reason why I don't think it's Brad is because Jolie would've had her lawyers filed some paperwork which would, coincidentally, get leaked and splattered all over the blogs and media outlets.

Princess Poopy Pants said...

Grande is a massive manipulator.

Sallysal said...

Johnny Depp sounds more likely than Ben Affleck. Jen wouldn't let that happen...

ringleader t said...

RIP MAC MILLER

it was ariana's fault

ringleader t said...

this is not ben affleck btw

LEANNE NORMAN said...

It's so sad about Mac Miller but it's not Ariana's fault at all, she ended the relationship because of his struggles with sobriety and the toxic effect that had on their relationship. People are responsible for their own actions, it's so disgusting to use his death to bash her she cared about him more than you ever will.

Pogue Mahone said...

Brad Pitt?

Cee Kay said...

No need to worry then. The ones who threaten to never just shut up and actually do it.

MattDaddy said...

@Cee Tell that to the kids.

Amy Savaglio said...

Charlie Sheen came to my mind. He is going broke. He can't pay all the high child support. He has drug and mental issues. He has HIS so he know he will have a hard, long death. It could have been any of the kids he has......
Loved the guy but dude royal messed up "winning"

Laslo Spatula said...

I always thought Ben Affleck was the Corey Feldman to Matt Damon's Corey Haim, but maybe I got it backwards.

Laslo Spatula said...

An Open Letter To Brad Pitt:

I know you are going through a very difficult time. Divorce and custody issues are never easy, but it is even more difficult when in the harsh Hollywood spotlight: trust me, I know.

Please know that people are pulling for you, even if you somehow end up connected to that horrible accident that will practically decapitate Angelina Jolie on her door step.

Just because you are the person who will be most suspected doesn't mean you are Guilty, and just because you may be Guilty doesn't mean you were Wrong.

Stay strong my man,

OJ

More Cowbell said...

If Ben is still in rehab, I doubt he'd have private time with his kids to says something like this. This kind of outburst sounds more like a man whose kids have turned against him likely because of a spousal dispute/divorce. He wants the the family back on his side and thinks threatening suicide will bring the kids and/or the spouse around.
Given my take on the psychology, this sounds more like Brad Pitt (I can totally imagine she's turning the kids against him), Johnny Depp (who isn't in rehab but his really unstable right now,) or even Ewan McGregor (his daughter really laid into him publicly.)

delete account said...

No sympathy for Ben Affleck or Jen Garner from me. She's babying him and enabling him--wtf was up with the public Bible thumping intervention, honestly...and who takes a "break" from rehab when they haven't been in it for even 30 days? Smh.
J-Lo, you dodged a bullet leaving him when you did. I know she's a teetotaler.

Tink said...

You know you read this sight too much when it’s an immediate “poor Ben”

jasons's buddy said...

Ben

Mango said...

@DejaBlue - I think Heatherbee’s point was that the tipster leaking this blind should have called social services rather than contact gossip rags.

@ Laslo Spatula - Hilarious!

Gator said...

Affleck actually has two Oscars.

Guesser said...

This could be someone with older children. I hope he isn't around his kids now. Also, the possibility of Angelina putting this story out is totally believable.

parissucksliterally said...

Ben Affleck has TWO Oscars. One for Good Will Hunting, and the Best Picture for Argo.

Whether you like it or not, he is Permanent A list.

Village Guru said...

@Laslo, I always thought Ben and Matt were s couple, in the early days at least.

BestMan said...

I agree. Its unfair to blame her for this.

Boldblonde said...

Am I the only one worried that Ben might die of an overdose, eventually??!!

Sd Auntie said...

People like Ben and Mac Miller are magnets for strong willed women like AG and JG. There is Nothing you can do for them except rehab and life long counseling. It is genetic and I have personally seen it with my 2 exes. One is straight laced family man married to a strong lady in charge and the other is killing himself with excessive drinking. They must be held accountable for their own actions and to blame a burned out partner is just wrong. You never lived with Mr. Miller and have no fucking clue what it is like to live with some one with substance abuse issues. How do I know? Because I have witnessed it myself and have helped many folks with their issues. Dual diagnosis is 10x worse and God bless any partner who sticks it out with their partner. Get over yourselves and quit judging folks who have been to hell and back with people who cannot say no to drinking, pills, shooting up or sniff the coke/meth. I know so many people who have lost their lives due to this crap. And it sucks

Miss Beige said...

27 club is now 25 club with this new generation of Soundcloud rappers. Cough syrup, gang violence, and normalized/glamorized nihilism. Bad combo. I'm genuinely concerned about their extremely young and devoted fanbase. Kids are watching their heroes self-destruct left right and centre.

Sd Auntie said...

Right Miss Beige and it's all the girlfriend or wifes fault. IDIOTS

Ali B said...

Mac Miller and his baby mama kids.

Jennacheryl said...

People need to realize that addiction IS NOT the fault of a loved one or former love.
AG broke up with MM bc of his addictions bc she couldn't handle it anymore given what she has been through in the last yr.
Jen G has not finalized the divorce yet bc she wants to make sure her children have the daddy they deserve.
My husband drinks, too much if you ask me, I never fix his drinks (unless he's had too much then it's sprite zero only) nor go to the liquor store for him. I get pissed when we stop after running around. I do not enable but I do love him and he is an amazing husband. Stop blaming people who live people with issues.
He who has no sin cast the first stone.

BRAD PITT said...


Mother: hey kids it's Daddy !!!!!!!!!!

Kids: Yayyy

Father: I'm gonna kill myself

Ulf said...

Pitt

Depeche Model said...

No way is this Brad Pitt. As if he'd give his heroin-addicted ex that kind of ammunition.

There's 2 type of parents who would do such a thing: 1. raging narcissistic drama-queens, who are so self-centred they don't think about anyone else but themselves and their own feelings
and 2. deeply dark and troubled drug addicts who don't realise the pain they are causing, saying such things

I'd put Johnny Depp or Ben Affleck in category 2.
I can totally picture Angelina Jolie - in category 1. - saying such things to her brood, but not Pitt.

But this sort of shit can be horrendously traumatising for kids, no matter what age they are. Hopefully the culprit will seek help.

MrPresident said...

Brad Pitt

ComeTheApocalypseI'mInCharge said...

Making that sort of statement around people who will repeat it and raise up a whole new flurry of media gossip and pap attention IS an Ben Affleck sort of thing. He won't have any intention of acting on it, but he has a HUGE ego, narcissism and serious addiction problems. He's lost control of the narrative. He has to get attention back on "me, me, me"..... expect more Ben-centric drama soon, very soon.

Viking Song said...

If it's not Ben Affleck then Johnny Depp is a good guess. He's had a rough few years.

People still believe Amber Heard's bullshit, even though all evidence is stacked against her (and that's without mentioning her criminal record and her own history of DV). His gay ex-wife used him to get a step up in Hollywood. Then, when he refused to let her ex girlfriend move into his house, she demanded a divorce and tried to blackmail him into giving her 50k a month. When he refused, she faux cried DV because a little bit of shrapnel accidentally caught her when he threw his phone at the wall. The fact his Mother had just died was of no importance to her. Twitter mentals were trying to destroy his career and were hassling people for hiring him/working with him. On top of that, he pissed off Trump mentals by cracking a joke about him...because they believe in free speech...until someone says something they don't like..

He's gone from being super popular to super unpopular in a mere few years. He's now hitting his mid fifties and probably thinks the best years are behind him.

Miss Beige said...

SD Auntie where did I mention wives/girlfriends? It's never their fault unless they literally tell their partner to kill themselves. In the case of Mac Miller, he was famously depressed and struggling with addiction before he started dating her. She obviously loved him and tried for a long time. Perhaps she thought their difficult relationship was keeping him from getting better. Or perhaps she needed to look after herself first. Either way she did nothing wrong.

My friend killed herself at 30 after being hellbent on suicide since the age of 12. I was actually shocked she made it through high school, let alone to 30. She had stable & supportive family, friends, teachers, medical crisis team, partners. But some people are just that unwell. They're fixated on death. It draws them like a magnet. Just like a recovering alcoholic will have to fight the urge to drink every day for the rest of their lives. They have to be so strong to resist that urge to self-harm. Sometimes they are strong for a long time, but eventually they're overcome by their demons.

Dominique Ray said...

I thought that too but I think Johnny isn’t big on worrying his kids. He kept a solid front even after amber. Plus he’s rocking rolling it in other countries

Aquagirl said...

I agree with @Jon. The first time I read it, I thought that he said it in front of his kids. But upon Re-reading, I realized, “He said last night, ‘I am going to commit suicide in front of my children.’”

This is actually something Angelina would say. She’s threatened suicide before, and I can totally see her saying it again given the way the custody battle is going. Sadly, she may take the kids out with her.

So perhaps she did leak this about Brad, but this is definitely not Brad saying this. He’s fought too long & hard to get to the point where he is.

Don’t think it’s Depp either. Despite his issues, he adores his kids, so can’t imagine, whatever his state of mind, that he would say this.

My vote is for Affleck or Sheen. Since Affleck keeps leaving rehab, JG is probably threatening to not let him see the kids, which could provoke this statement. The Sheen guess is pretty self-explanatory.

@Miss

" Cough syrup, gang violence, and normalized/glamorized nihilism. Bad combo. I'm genuinely concerned about their extremely young and devoted fanbase. Kids are watching their heroes self-destruct left right and centre."

That has always been the case, though. Look at how the Brat Pack normalized beer for breakfast and martinis by lunch, and there were plenty of young stars who self destructed under that template. Today, there are as many ways to do substances as there are cereals on the breakfast aisle, though.

Urban Rosebud said...

At Aretha Franklin funeral she was so high her rendition of "Natural Woman" was quite heroin-induced & lackluster. She was high as a kite. She is not innocent & that break-up was difficult & humiliated him.

We are responsible for how we treat others we say we love. Ariana behaved like trash.

BlissBoo said...

LEANNE NORMAN said...
It's so sad about Mac Miller but it's not Ariana's fault at all, she ended the relationship because of his struggles with sobriety and the toxic effect that had on their relationship. People are responsible for their own actions, it's so disgusting to use his death to bash her she cared about him more than you ever will.

1) She ended the relationship with an addict to sign-on (within 4 months) with ANOTHER addict. OKAY...

2) "She cared about him more than you ever will"... RE-READ #1.

NOT saying that its her fault that he's dead, everyone is responsible for themselves, but her leaving him and then urgently getting together and becoming engaged to another addict I'm sure didn't help matters with his emotional state. Please don't drink her kool-aid and cutie pie look. She's not innocent and could give a shit about you sticking up for her.

JL said...

Or he said, "l'm killing myself in front of my kids." Meaning, like all addictions, "this addiction is killing me and my kids are watching."!May have been said in a group therapeutic setting, which really sucks that someone talked.

David Howes said...

Sigh!

Such a desperate signal from this actor (whoever he is) that he needs help.
He should hire a therapist/psychologist/psychiatrist and go through the process of healing mentally.

Mental Health is such an important part of life that the ACA was so beneficial to my family.

Of course, insurance doesn't want to cover it. (They'd have to pay money out that they don't want to.)

I have learned through the years that the single payer system will help most if not all get insurance coverage.

So, it costs e extra money -- it's money that I'm currently spending for insurance coverage anyway.

Viking Song said...

Oh here we go again. Junkie dies of overdose, so it's the ex girlfriend's fault. If he had never got with Ariana you would have pointed the finger of blame at his Mother instead. It's time men took responsibility for their problems and fuck ups instead of the usual scapegoating of the closest female..

mercyprosperity said...

The elderly become just as depressed and suicidal as younger people.

Maybe this blind is Kirk Douglas, or another older actor.
I've been wondering how Bob Newhart is doing since he's lost his two best friends, Tom Poston and Don Rickles. Bob is 88, I think.

I also wonder how Dick Van Dyke is doing.

plot said...

Bob's kids won power of attorney over his estate over his last wife. He is suffering from some form of dementia or health decline and his wife was trying to move him to a cheaper facility. The kids won the right to keep him at his familiar facility and keep the wife out of his finances.

Sd Auntie said...

My reply to you @ Miss Beige was a sarcastic remark directed @Brayson and other so called whiners on this thread. I agreed with you 100%. Sorry about that

Sd Auntie said...

+1009000 viking song.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Plot, Bob Newhart has been married to the same woman since 1963. What is this about his "last wife"?

Bob was also on Conan in August 2018 and seemed fine.

I think your "dementia" narrative must be about someone else. Maybe Mickey Rooney?

That said, mercyprosperity s right in that Bob Newhart has recently lost several friends- including one yesterday. Bill Daily, who played Howard Borden on Bob's first series, just died. Bill gave Bob his start in show business.

Sd Auntie said...

Obviously Bliss boo. You do NOT have any life experiences that would make your statement believable. you base it on her cutie pie looks and adoring fans. fans and Kool Aide statement smacks if immaturity, jealousy and ignorance.

Sd Auntie said...

Or better yet, go volunteer at a homeless shelter. You will see lots of addicts and it's the same thing for every class of people. ITS THEIR OWN CHOICE.

rosie riveter said...

I think plots right. I remember seeing bob newhart years ago with a young wife/kids thinking he was old as shit then.

Amazonblue said...

Plot is confusing Bob Newhart with Tim Conway. It's Tim that's suffering from dementia and his daughter won conservatorship over his wife. She blocked the wife from moving him to a different home.

Mad Hominem said...

This permanent A list mostly movie actor all of you know threatened to commit suicide in front of his children last night.

This could be interpreted either way. This rephrasing is more clear:

This permanent A list mostly movie actor all of you know threatened suicide in front of his children last night.

Kiki Jones said...

+1 SHEEN

Schneiderisnext said...

+1 Brayson

Except for 1 part. If Dan schneider fucked Ariana Grande, thats when she became a monster.

People who are so weak/fame obsessed that they sick dock for a part probably have few qualms about doing the same thing to other fresh talent later in their careers.

The casting couch is Hollywood. It's a whole system built upon sexual and aesthetic exploitation and fetishization

Schneiderisnext said...

The victims often become abusers, not all, but the usually the most successful.

Society never eliminated rape. We just got better at hiding and compartmentalizing it so we don't think we see it everyday.

But most of the media we consume is based upon exploitation. There are real world and spiritual effects when we consume this poisoned fruit

plot said...

@Nutty

Amazonblue is correct and I'm dead wrong. It's Tim Conway, not Bob Newhart, who is have conservatorship issues. Must be my age!

@Amazon

Thanks for clearing that up.

BTW, does you handle refer to a blue fronted Amazon?

Fuck them all, bunch of all talk, no shock chickenshit pussies with no follow through.

COME ON!!! JUST DO IT! DO IT NOW! DO IT AS A FUCK YOU TO TRUMP!!!

luckythewondercat said...

I agree an actor who people start calling "the show me the money guy from Jerry McGuire" should not be considered A list.

AJ Benza had a good story about Alec Baldwin doing this and apparently he has done it more than once too.

Da Mac said...

Why would Brad commit suicide? He's cool. Ben is anything but.
