Blind Items Revealed #3

May 25, 2019

Even with the help of her mother, this A-/B+ list actress is barely getting any work and the work she is getting is not that great. This is why so many people turned down the franchise role she took. It was a career killer.

Melanie Griffith/Dakota Johnson/Fifty Shades Of Grey

Melanie isn't exactly getting much work either.

labman said...

Though about a year ago, I really liked her in Bad times at the El Royale; also good was Jon Hamm.

Troy Dyer said...

Came here to say the same!

Do Tell said...

don't you have to have a career first in order to kill it?

J said...

Boo the fuck hoo.

FrenchGirl said...

Agree. In Surpiria remake, also

Hanniam said...

@Do Tell That was my first thought. It was a gamble. She lost. Her agent could have visited any library or book store and asked how public sentiment for 50 Shades was looking before signing and gotten an answer that would have saved her a world of aggravation and embarrassment.

The movie was by most accounts terrible live action of worse fan fiction which people were buying largely out of curiosity and shock value.

NachoCheese said...

Beans. Her not being able to emote better than a paper bag is what killed her career.

sandybrook said...

In any case, Entys crack research people don't bother with looking at upcoming movies she is in with Oscar winners and nominees, so I'm sure all those people can't find work either. She's got one movie filming and 2 ready to come out.

Hanniam said...

@Sandy really? I’m actually surprised. Probably should have done a quick google for this one.

Hannah J said...

They should fire the people that are writing for this site. Remember when Enty kept going on about how both actress and actor were going to pull out of the franchise....obviously didn't happen. Then how actor was cheating with everyone and anyone and was close to a divorce....yet he's on this third kid, then saying they weren't going to promote the movie, only to have them on every major talk show. Enty's "team" has it in for anything 50-shades. She actually has 3 films coming out and is filming one now. This site has changed and not for the better.....I mean it's basically about DM articles, reality shows and rappers.

J said...

All the people who do nothing but bitch about this site and its free entertainment content should remind themselves that there's a very big internet out there.

Dakota just isn't good, she's better sticking with supporting comedy roles, like she was b4 50. She has the charisma of a paper bag.

Mel was a better actress, but she was very limited to the ditzy bimbo roles.

BL was reporting it was Mel who encouraged Dakota to go after 50, thinking it would make her a stah. Mel isn't the best at career advice for her kids.

sandybrook said...

Yes Jason Segal, Cherry Jones, Casey Affleck, Zazie Beetz, Armie Hammer,

+1 Hannah
TRUTH

Dakota got raves for that sitcom on fox before 50. On SNL and on Kimmel, she has displayed some variety/a good sense of humor. I only saw the first one, but that 50 character wasnt exactly much to work with. I thought she was fine in Bad Times. I think taking varied supporting roles is a good idea for her right now.

Gen-z99 said...

@Thursday November, its not that she's not good but take in the fact that all the Hollywood actors/actresses that Hollywood has hyped up have failed tremendously in the box office from kellan Lutz to Alicia vikander,this generation of consumers aren't checking for them.The era of the big blockbuster star is over.Like someone said on ,basi

Huckleberry said...

Her career isn't completely dead. She'll be fine.

Unknown said...

Lol

Gen-z99 said...

Marketing a woman like Dakota to a multi-ethnic world was never going to work.Basic is out,ambiguous is what is selling these days

kiki71 said...

Please, it is something else not the movie. Look at Maggie Gyllenhaal after SECRETARY which was way riskier and racier. This has to do with her acting entitled or having no talent or something. Look at Melanie's racier roles, Kim Bassinger after 9 1/2 WEEKS. It is only a career killer IF you let it be.

Hanniam said...

@Kiki: it’s not about risk or raciness. It’s about 50 Shades being just plain awful. Secretary was a solid movie. Acting, script, and directing were on point. Even people like me who didn’t actually like the movie can still look at it and objectively say it was a well made movie.

50 Shades? Ehhh... not even if you squint.

cocktailhour said...

She needs acting classes.

KOB said...

@hannahJ I agree, so many contradicting blinds these days. It was only a couple of months ago this site was saying she was turning down jobs to act at Chris Martin's lap dog and he was getting fed up with her because of that. Well it can't be both......either she's turning away work to be the smothering girlfriend, or she killed her career years ago and has no offers??

BRAD PITT said...

Dakota Johnson was paid $250,000 + box office bonus for her performance in Fifty Shades Of Grey

Dakota Johnson has a net worth of $14 million dollars

St St St Steve said...

Agree. A real creepy vibe, that movie, really suited her acting style. I like her!

LogoGirl said...

I thought Dakota Johnson was charming in "How to be Single" and i was pretty much set not to like her. I think she will be fine.

Meredith said...

I thought people liked Suspiria, no? I still haven't watched

I liked her in Bad Times at the El Royale too, labman.

Amartel said...

This seems very off.

Gator said...

Career killer? She had no career to begin with, she's too boring.

HouellebecqGurl said...

What kind of "I'm totally being subtle," racist bullshit are you trying to push?

HouellebecqGurl said...

I think it's DJ's inability to emote, personally.

Gen-z99 said...

Nope its because she a bland white girl,who can't draw in people of all kinds.Listen in this day and age its all about who draws in numbers not about talent.If she had a base that would pay big bucks to see her movies shed have a career but she doesn't cause she's not appealing enough to attract people across all democraphs

TruRes said...

Ditto to all.

Henriette said...

If Dakota Johnson was a color is would be taupe. She is just beyond boring, which is so surprising since her parents are so interesting to watch. Some people are just not that interesting and never will be. I am falling asleep just writing about this boring chick.

rednoir said...

Dakota Johnson is the sort of girl I wouldn't mind going out with, but if she said no, I wouldn't mind either.

Angela said...

Remember that when Charlie Hunnam dropped off the first film, there was even a series of blinds blaming him for turning down the part…

Angela said...

As opposed to the fine people who have zero interest for arts or entertainment, yet spend their days waiting for stories about them, just to have confirmation that Hollywood is a place filled with liberal degenerates? Sure, they sound like the life of a party.

Thot Crimes said...

Melanie's magic is all used up from couching her own career. I don't her "helping" her daughter being a positive.

Marie said...

Didn't really care for Bad Times. Suspiria was creepy. She just doesn't stand out. Not a very good best actress. I actually enjoyed her mother more, before she started looking like the Joker.

Thursday November said...

If you think Dakota ain't fake, you must be a newbie of this site. Enty has had other reveals about her, she's an entitled HW legacy. The reason her & Goop get along is that they are 2 peas in a pod.

pickyvegetarian said...

she's too basic
