Today's Blind Items - She Couldn't Leave

I am pretty sure he wanted her to quit. He would have sacrificed the film that had already been shot and started over at a huge financial cost because he wanted her gone so much. It was always a bad idea from the beginning that this A list director was directing his significant other. They were not getting along prior to shooting this movie and things were even worse during filming. Unlike the director, the actress significant other needed the paycheck from the movie. She had been on hold for so long waiting for the movie to begin filming that she had not worked in a long time. The director was getting paid about 20 times what the actress was earning. Our director liked an actress on the set. He would hit on her in front of his significant other. He then began having sex with her and would call his significant other during sex or after sex. He was doing anything to make her quit. If she quit, she didn't get paid. Her contract specifically said she had to make it to her final day of filming. He made her life miserable. He would yell at her every day and make her cry. He would tell her secrets she had shared with him out loud to cast and crew. He berated her every chance she got. She stuck with it though. She stuck it through to the end and got herself a new guy and an Academy Award win/nomination for the film where she had been abused.

I don't know. Aranofsky and J Law?

ladybaus said...

Lupita-12 years a Slave

Tricia13 said...

Alec Baldwin/Kim Basinger?

J said...

Looks like she picked a great boyfriend.

Tuesdi said...

Tricia, he didn't direct her in LA Confidential.

bbstar9 said...

Darren Aronofsky / Jennifer Lawrence ?

ladybaus said...

boyfriend being Chiwetel Ejiofor whom she was rumored to been dating during filming.

Tuesdi said...

I don't think this is Lupita either? Were she and McQueen together? I don't have a great guess, though.
This sounds like it could be James Cameron as director? But I can't find the actress so probably not him.

sandybrook said...

Kate Winslet/Sam Mendes?

ladybaus said...

If it's more than two sentences long and not a blind repeated everyday, worded differently-Tricia the Goddess of blinds won't answer correctly. She cant read-if yall don't know that by now...

Sue T. said...

I don't think Steve McQueen was an "A-list director" when he was directing "12 Years a Slave" so the idea that he could have started over again "at huge financial cost" seems unlikely. You'd have to have a LOT of clout to do that.

How about Woody Allen? He has a lot of power and has directed his SO's (Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow). Plus his movies are fairly inexpensive so conceivably he could recast and start again.

Screams David O douche to me.

Tuesdi said...

Yes - it says she was his significant other.

hunter said...

it does scream David O Douche.

ladybaus said...

I stand corrected-Tuesday my apologies.

David O. Douche=David Russell?

notthisagain said...

yea but did jlaw ever 1) take a break long enough waiting for a David O Russell movie? like was there a big pause before The Hustle, or Joy? I dont think so and 2) JLaw worth more than David O Russell post-silver linings

MDAnderson said...

Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon??

ladybaus said...

Aronfsky and Portman? The filming of Black Swan took years.

News said...

sam mendes and kate, was she nominated?
Though he would have mentioned foreign.

Do Tell said...

This sounds like a page out of James Cameron's playbook, but Linda Hamilton was only nominated for Golden Globes.

pwal said...

Sounds like an Old Hollywood blind. Directors making 20 times what the lead actress made? I thought Dorothy Dandridge and Otto Preminger.

ladybaus said...

Kate wasn't nominated for the movie Revolutionary Road. Plus she looks like she would kick a mans ass.

Zebra Seasoning said...

Until it got to the last sentence, I would have said Renny Harlin and Geena Davis for Cutthroat Island. But there's no way that movie even got close to the Oscars, let alone be nominated for one.

plot said...

Aronofsky/Portman seems the best guess for the amount of time taken, and for the douchy director description. Aronofsky is such a mediocre hack who fancies himself a geeeenius.

ladybaus said...

David Fincher and Rooney Mara-Dragon Tattoo movie.

FrenchGirl said...

Fincher never was married with Mara

ladybaus said...

says significant other-I dont think that means spouse.

plot said...

Ugh, those Tattoo movies.

Fincher doesn't have the douchebag director reputation of Aronofsky or David O, does he? Also, Rooney Mara is independently wealthy outside of her work in movies. Her acting is more like a hobby. Same with her sister.

Unknown said...

The Mara family is loaded so I don't think it's her. This is someone who wasn't in good shape financially and hadn't worked for awhile while she was waiting for the film to start shooting.

Guesser said...

I like the Aronofsky Portman guess so far. But wouldn't the baby daddy rumors be hinted at? It makes for a better blind. I thought Rooney was seeing Daniel Craig at the time,and was caught off guard when he married. @plot, Rooney isn't as rich as everyone thinks. Not born into poverty mind you, but she will have to wait till more family die. Also loads of relatives.

Laurita said...

I want to say Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson, but she wasn’t nominated for any of the movies they did together...

plot said...

The Mara girls have proven to me that they aren't acting for the money and that they must have trust funds backing them. Rooney dropped the Tattoo franchise after one (and after copying Noomi Rapace's performance note for note.) The Maras are extremely selective in their projects, not going for the big payday ventures. More power to them that they don't have to act in shit for money.

totaji said...

This one has been a blind before. It’s that Diana Ross movie from the mid70s

plot said...

Damn, totaji, you're right!

Sd Auntie said...

Mahogany..

Hamid said...

What film did Alec Baldwin direct starring Kim Basinger?

If you weren't so obsessed with maniacally posting guesses every two seconds, you wouldn't clog up these threads with ridiculous errors.

I kid, of course. More like every 1.5 seconds.

Sue T. said...

It's not "Mahogany," the whole point of that blind was that the director was gay: "The director of the movie was foreign born. A list director... He liked young men. He liked them as close to barely legal as possible and he was perfectly willing to let whatever man wanted to sleep with him have a part in whatever movie he was directing. He didn't care if the man could act, he just wanted to have the easy access to sex and JR figured any scene shot could end up on the cutting room floor if it was too awful."

ladybaus said...

LOL Hamid-so true.

Unknown said...

Woody Allen and Diane Keaton

AppleThief4Elliot said...

I'm on the Black Swan train.

Kati Sanders said...

Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branaugh. He directed her in Howard's End.

Boots said...

Emma Thompson would kick his ass and never ever put up with this from KB.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Diane Keaton/ Warren Beatty/ Reds

mooshki said...

Hannah and Her Sisters comes close to fitting, but Dianne Wiest is the one who won an Oscar, not Mia.

Krusty Demon said...

No - James Ivory directed it.

Krusty Demon said...

You might be thinking of Dead Again.

Kimberly Davis said...

Whatever y'all believe, it's not Allen or Branaugh, both consummate professionals on a set. Maybe Beatty, but I don't think he'd risk the $$$ of losing Keaton on a film he'd spent years on trying to get financing. hmmm this is a tricky one!

DDonna Tarttty said...

I don't know, but it's got to be an "auteur" with an ingenue girlfriend, in a movie that probably didn't cost too much to make.

Woody Allen is the best guess I've read, but i don't think it's him. No way Warren Beatty would've risked "Reds," a movie it took him forever to get made.

Could it be Darren Aronofsky and Jennifer Connelly for "Requiem for a Dream"?

Unknown said...

Tippi hedren and Alfred Hitchcock

Kate K said...

I'm thinking Warren Beatty and Diane Keaton, the film being Reds. They broke up right after.

Kate K said...

Gross! Definitely not!

Tricia13 said...

Guesser-Aronofsky/Portman were never a couple . She took up with Benjamin Milliapied (now husband)on that set. Even if there was a rumor she and DA hooked up-it was no long term affair. His only Longterm SO was Rachael Weisz who was nommed for Constant Hargener,but he didn’t direct it

Tricia13 said...

*Gardener

bmw said...

Aronofsky - Portman - Kunis,

Guesser said...

@Tricia13,I thought the Aronofsky / Portman hookup was well known? And that she hooked up with her now husband to escape his controlling ways. He would like the story to be he dumped her,his ego wouldn't allow anything less. And she did have secrets,like her hookup with Sean Penn,for one. She made a career out of appearing perfect, so it seems things that wouldn't affect others might with her. And this MO deals of Aronofsky, similar would be Cameron but can't fit an actress for this.

Julie said...

Lupita reportedly hooked up with Benny Cum.during the filming of 12 Years....

Anna Mouse said...

Fargo?

Renee 123 said...

I would much rather someone have wrong guesses then read the racist hate you post Hamid #teamtiger

Chameka Mathis said...

Steven Speilberg/Amy Irving/Kate Capshaw?

Stupidpervs said...

What you tired of being a racist so you gonna pick on Tricia today since your main target of hate isn't here today ...you sure are something ...accuse another poster of racism then proceed to flaunt your racism ..gtfo bitch ..btw Tricia is immune to your shit she has class

Stupidpervs said...

Lol really says the dumb bitch that went with Meliana trying to hide her Russian language skills..you must suck at life to attack Tricia she's friendly to everyone so awesome job and maybe you should say your alarm to wake up earlier instead of dragging in 3 hours after the blinds are posted to bitch cuz your not first

Stupidpervs said...

You know I for one enjoy seeing Tricia here it's kinda like she's the og of cdan then here come the noon sleepers to complain while not actually posting a answer ..I promise you she's right more than she's wrong and when she's wrong she takes time to talk it out instead of whining like others ....why does it matter who post first I'd there a prize for it ? Or yall just some petty bitches ? #jealousmuchlatebirds

Biden is a Pedo said...

Yeah ladyshortbaus and hamdick are diluting the gene pool. Imagine how stupid the other sperm were if these two were the “winners” in the egg race. Too bad their mommas didn’t swallow

I hate it that I keep thinking of Clint Eastwood...

Islam is a race?

Islam is a race?

Thot Crimes said...

No @hamid, but your face is.

Unknown said...

This coming from the person who trolls everyone when everyone is sleeping. This cracks me up. Screen name fits you.

Dana Hamblen said...

Darren Aronofsky and Natalie Portman were not a couple. Plus he directed her again in Jackie which she was also nominated for

JoElla Valenzuela Durham said...

@Alice. Great guess!

The movie with Sandra. The blonde with the orange orangatang.

Hamid said...

On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a lot and 10 is more than 7/7, how much did you enjoy the islamic terrorist attack on Stockholm that killed, among others, the deaf 11 year old girl Ebba Akerlund, whom geel and his fellow jihadists regard as filthy kuffars deserving of slaughter?

plot said...

Is this the Swedish attack that Trump cocked up for his devotees? Or a real one?

Tricia13 said...

@stupidpervs-thank you for kind words etc:)
I wouldn’t waste time on this lot though.....
They only have themselves to talk to back and forth now and the next..... number of years. We can press “mute”.
The majority of the country clearly did a couple years ago

plot said...

Majority minus 4 million you mean. Not even that since the majority of the country doesn't vote. So you're SOL there Queen Trish.

Yeah mute the Trumpie bombs, the Trumpie violence that their fearless leader promotes, the Trumpie removal of asbestus from the banned building materials list, the Trumpie hatred of African Americans, Latinos, LGBT...well just about everyone but the wealthy, ignore the falling stock market, ignore the plants shutting down to Trumpie tariffs...

Lemme guess, you're going to blame Satanic societies when things don't end up the way you like, because you've ignored all the facts right in your face.

Unknown said...

Why?
The guy's a first class arsehole.
Bohemian Grove cockwomble.

Tricia13 said...

No i’m good,sista.

Seems you aren’t . As we witness everyday (about 1 million types characters worth).

You’ve no idea what I’m about. Yet you claim to say people don’t live where they do, eat what they eat, believe what a they ACTUALLY believe (because without having any cognitive awareness of them as an actual entity)- how would one-except you...ahh that’s your “superpower “?
(That and switching screenames like dirty underwear.)

Your a bent,damaged person.

And so you shall remain.sadly for you because you haven’t learned a thing about life ,or people.
And you ain’t getting younger sis

Tricia13 said...

We all eagerly await your cowardly late hour response (you know the one where you address 40/50 people) to ensure you have the last word when all others have moved onto their day/life....the one they ya know -actually live.
Always a good laugh to start the day with.
Thanks for providing it so consistently, and proving us so right about so much:)

plot said...

You're not your.

Never switch screen names, but that just proves to me that you can't possibly believe more than one person would disagree with you about anything. That's just sad.

plot said...

"We all eagerly await "

See! You do care. Maybe later.

Tricia13 said...

Not at all dove.
You disagree /with attack so many about so much. It’s only personal-to you.
You failed Self Awareness 101 but we all know that.

Thot Crimes said...

@plot - It's not your pic that I know of. Seriously, I just typed "crazed myleftwing blogger" into google, and that's what came up.

Besides, you haven't accidentally answered in the same thread using your main CDaN account (Maryscott_Oconnor) for months, so nobody remembers what it is now.

And, all your posts here are TOTALLY 100% ORIGINAL content, so no, it's definitely not you.

Tricia13 said...

Oh the shame lol......

plot said...

"You disagree /with attack so many about so much"

Why do you care? Is this how you treat everyone you care about? Attack them, drunkenly, then pretend to care?

@Thot

" your main CDaN account (Maryscott_Oconnor) "

This is my one and only CDAN account. It's pretty easy to verify that, btw.

Tricia13 said...

Who is attacking anyone drunkenly Mary Scott Plot?

Tricia13 said...

๐Ÿ™๐ŸปPray tell๐Ÿ’œ

Tricia13 said...

And provide the ever exciting “....” with your proof please...:)
We live for your quotations here.
Promise.

Jesus.

I'm not going to play with the mentally ill tonight.

Tricia13 said...

So stop masturbating doll

plot said...

Such a lady.



Tell us again about how your Trump won a majority.

Tricia13 said...

I never talk about politics
Just address people like you that evidently can’t deal with life.
I’m a lady ,a mother, a wife, parents together after 59 years . I’m good .
How’s your GoFund Me account working out

getstracked said...

Wow, I had no idea what a colossal @$$hole Daniel A. was.

MattDaddy said...

CDAN's comment section has ended up where all comment sections go: endless, nasty, tit-boring personal disputes.

Such a damn shame.

Morris Park said...

Wasn’t the early rumor that Portman’s son was Darren’s and she quickly married the dancer to cover it up.

plot said...

"I never talk about politics"

Except to praise Trump as America's savior. Do you forget to easily? Tested for dementia yet?

"I’m a lady"

Oh well that's obviously not true. See your comments on this board.

Tricia13 said...

Yep.
I am.
And “you’re “still a lonely sociopath.

Kimberlini said...

Now this is worthy of a podcast...in all its permutations.

Kimberlini said...

I loved Chiwetel Ejiofor in Dirty Pretty Things. I don't want him to be a bad guy!

plot said...

No really, Tricia, you aren't.

I know that imagining yourself a lady is just as important as being the first to post on any thread (and deleting it most the time), or your advanced emoji vocabulary, or your imaginary stalker.

It probably helps your deep wells of unladylike hatred and bile to imagine I'm lonely, but it ain't true. Not that I'll convince you, in that fantasy world of yours, in Guadalajara.

plot said...

BTW, Tricia, how about updating that stalker of yours all about your kids, where they camp, where they go to school, maybe even some more photos.
