Blind Items Revealed #16 - Reader Blind Item

November 16, 2019

This Oscar nominated/Oscar winning actor was probably A+ at the peak of his career as he was a trailblazer and the first of his kind to win a prestigious award.  Later, in his career he did more directing.

He is very old and largely retired but is still seen as a cultural icon of sort.  A combination of his age and his perceived integrity has shielded him from some #metoo accusations which are from earlier in his career. Mostly his age as most of the women who talked about him have passed away but over the years they did tell people.  The stories were not simple harassment but full on violent sexual assault that occurred on movie sets mostly. This magazine associated with a city started a story but killed it when they couldn’t get a living person on record as to this actor’s behavior.

If anything, the reveals today have shown that men are disgusting.

You shouldn't profess any kind of affection for these Hollywood Freaks.

David Andrews said...

...Who made a couple movies with Bill Cosby. Wonder what those sets were like.

LOL @Brayson

Sometimes, I really hate this effing website. Just watched all of his movies....

BMDS said...

It's spelled "Sidney"...He has a daughter named "Sydney".

I dunno... I can’t imagine a brother getting away with violently assaulting women on set. I mean Bill Cosby was ”America’s F$&king Dad” & was eventually brought down, so I dunno if I believe it. First time in all my years of blinds, CDAN, forums, Reddit, etc. that I’ve heard this one. Who knows! They’re all creeps in Hollywood

Admit it. I can recall seeing him simmering and seething in his roles. It came through. Nothing surprises me.

HAPPY NEW YEAR y'all!

He was engaged to Dianne Carroll and used to beat her...

GentleBreeze said...

Happy New Year, momo!

@Worstcompnaytoworkfor: Yes, this guy was and is scum. I heard that about Dianne Carroll. I thought it was while they had the 9 year affair. Doesn't matter to me if they were engaged or having an affair. I give no quarter to women beaters.

Shen said...

Also meant to add, never found him the least bit attractive. To each his own.

BRAD PITT said...

they call me Mr Tibbs !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I worked with a girl back in the early 2000's (St. Petersburg, Florida.)that said her boyfriend was Sidney's son. The mom was from the islands. And yes the young man did look a lot like Mr. Poitier.
