Blind Items Revealed #20 - Anniversary Month

January 29, 2016

This foreign born B- list mostly movie actor is only this high because he did win an Academy Award. Without it he would be at D list by now. He was kind of a one movie wonder. During that big award season he ticked off studios right and left with a huge diva attitude only matched by his actress wife. They paraded through town going to event after event demanding more and more things and even had a rider they had their agent present before they would agree to an appearance. He complained about the studios while at the same time asking studios to pay him $20M to act and direct in a new movie. Still, though, he was hot so they gave him a big budget movie to act and direct in. Total bomb. Horrible. The studios though, didn't care. They were so happy to have an excuse to never talk to him or work with him again. He and his wife have never worked in Hollywood again.

I think he stole this from the Deeper Underground video by British funksters, Jamiroquai, the year before.
