Today's Blind Items - The Door

He doesn't go there as much as he did in the past. He still owns it through one of his companies, but the building in downtown is primarily inhabited just by squatters and drug users who have no idea that the owner is also one of them and was a frequent guest. The building is an old office building. Five stories. In one of the corners of the third floor is a locked door. Steel. No one is getting in there except for the owner. It is his personal sanctuary when he is there shooting up with the regulars. It is a place he can escape and enjoy his high without fear of something happening to him. That fear is real. Prior to buying the building, our actor would be with the masses and was repeatedly robbed or beaten up while wasted. He bought the building because he envisioned it as a place where users could go and feel safe. For a long time he even had a security guard there to make sure people could do their thing without being bothered. Our actor is a former A+ lister although he has not been that high in decades. Technically he is probably no higher than C list on the acting side of things, but I promise that every single one of you knows who he is. His new girlfriend is really trying to stay close to him and act as a sober coach. Since she has been in his life, the trips to the building are a once every other month thing. There is no longer a security guard and the place has turned into a dump. Our actor, once known for paying for everyone's fix multiple times a day is a forgotten figure with people being replaced by other people and so on. The one thing that remains though is that door. Impenetrable to the most concerted efforts. It is waiting there for the actor to return, although his actress girlfriend hopes he never does.

Maybe Leif Garrett since it doesn't necessarily have to be a movie actor.

Rosie riveter said...

Yes! Great guess w McCualey Culkin

Alf Landon said...

https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/celebrity-life/the-heartbreak-that-drove-macaulay-culkin-to-heroin-and-painkillers/news-story/b17adb4e0642c87f724826d1fee8e584

The staff at the Duane Reed pharmacy in Manhattan confirmed that Culkin comes in "fairly regularly", but declined to comment further.

However, the magazine's account of Culkin’s alleged addictions is extremely detailed. It claims he is spending $6000 a month on drugs, a habit which has grown since he was dumped by his girlfriend of eight years, actress Mila Kunis, at the end of 2010.

The magazine contends that Culkin is "hopelessly hooked" and quotes sources who say they have seen him use a mixture of drugs. They say he regularly shoots up heroin and the painkiller oxycodone - a semi-synthetic opiate sometimes used by cancer patients.

He invites friends for poker parties, which turn into drugs binges with a "close circle of whacked-out pals".

A supposed insider told the magazine: "He's been hooked for a year and a half ... Mac is surrounding himself with junkies and lowlifes."

Sagan said...

Why am I thinking David Spade?

hunter said...

Hey Alf - that's fair but also article is from 2012.

We can all see he's doing much better now. Macaulay is an excellent choice because Michael Jackson bought places for similar reasons.

That's not maybe as meaningful to some as others but there it is.

shakey said...

Just wanted to say I think this blind is well-written. Kudos to whichever Entern wrote this.

Sitcom Guy said...

@Sagan - Not Spade.

cheesegrater15 said...

That was my guess.

jetpacksforall said...

He looks like he's hanging in there, here he is on a Red Letter Media video from a few days ago talking about the movie The Warriors (he's done a few of these film re:views recently). He seems a bit battle worn, but functional and fun.

Can you dig it?

Having had to deal with thieving methheads breaking into properties and storage I really want to know the specs on that door. The downside of a good door though is, from my experience, that they would just hammer through the wall if they could not get through the door.

timebob said...

I wonder if the building is in LA or NYC I would think if it is that far gone it would be condemned as a health hazard.

Agree with .robert any good thief knows if you can't get through the door go through the walls.

bollybiy said...

@timebob

Have you been to DTLA lately?

Most of it is a health hazard.

OKay said...

@J Mac Culkin >>>>>>>>Trace Cyrus, so at least she's moving in the right direction. I root for him, I really do.

notthisagain said...

yea this sounds like Culkin & Brenda Strong

I really like them as a couple

Vita said...

Jeeez, Louise, this is depressing after the joy of thinking about great concerts. Sadly, I'll agree with Culkin. On the bright side, it does say that the visits are less frequent, and the girlfriend is trying to act as sober coach (bad position to be in, but better than enabler).

Dont go back to the Door! I hope he can sell the building and end that chapter of his life.

.Robert-- I m sorry for your troubles, but asking for the door specs was funny!😁

Wendy said...

I've always liked Brenda Song from back in her Disney days. I hope he stays clean for him and for her.

Aquagirl said...

@Vita, I’m still not sure if this blind refers to MC, but I’m really hoping for his sobriety. He’s Paris J’s godfather, and it would be great if she had one sober person in her life. Apparently she is close to him from what I know and have seen.

Thot Crimes said...

+1 robert.

Unknown said...

Ya like we all know them, shut up

Anomalocaris said...

Macaulay has looked so much healthier since he has been with Song.

HouellebecqGurl said...

Yup. Brenda Song & MC

B. said...

Johnny Depp owns a building in DTLA.

Paul Saint John said...

Whoever it is, one day he will die from overdose behind that door. Good riddance! I have zero tolerance and sympathy for junkies.
