Blind Item #12

This foreign born A+/A list mostly movie actress who is about tied on the list with a family member, is hooked on pain medication. Apparently things are quite serious but she is amazing at hiding it from friends and family. It was brought into the light while doing some reshoots for a movie that comes out in a couple of months. She went into withdrawals.

What does withdrawal from pain medication look like? It's not like DTs right?

sandybrook said...

Emily Blunt?

Tricia13 said...

Penelope Cruz/Javier?

SeijnSei said...

IF they are opioids its a narcotic so its pretty intense.

PattiJoy said...

Ooohh, @sandybrook. I like the Blunt guess. She has always looked shiny eyed and brittle to me on the red carpet. Anyway, I would have imagined that she'd take Suboxone, a combination medication containing buprenorphine and naloxone that is one of the main meds used for MAD, or medication-assisted therapy, for opiate addiction.

Cruz film maybe 355 (action film)

Rooney or Kate Mara?

zee|nyc said...

Lily Allen?

Alicia Vikander

sandybrook said...

Emily has 2 movies in post-production coming out this year and one more coming out next year. Thing is Krasinski might not be at her level.

Kate k said...

I like this guess, although when has Lily Allen been good at hiding her drug use?

gauloise said...

Vanessa Redgrave? is def an A+ She has a number of movies set to be released soon

mom of Joely Richardson for relative

Da Fresh Prince said...

I like the Cruz guess. I feel bad if this is true. :( I had a family member hooked on pain meds and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

squirrelmistress said...

opiate withdrawl is a lot like heroin withdrawl

PattiJoy said...

Apparently, there is something called the Krasinski Curse, meaning his career has had more valleys than peaks. So he's not more prominent. This might be a stupid question, but does anyone know how to get Q-scores without subscribing? Is it just when the trades and others publish some scores that I find out.

Brayson87 said...

@squirrel, About how much do people have to take to get that level of withdrawal? I've seen people kick pills before and it didn't look anything like heroin withdrawal, but I don't know how much they were taking.

Anon said...

if an Rx is for say a pill every 4 hours, these people are taking like 4 every 4 hours, if not more. i have a couple of friends that do this. it wreaks havoc on lives and, less importantly, looks.

firefly391 said...

it is like the dts. its horrible.

Colonel Blake said...

If someone is getting a RX for 1 tab every 4 hours, they're not taking 4 every 4 hours. They'd run out before they could refill their next RX. Otherwise, they're hitting the streets for them, which is expensive and dicey.

I made myself quit Valium, on my own. I took it for YEARS for my Meniere's disease. Then I learned it can cause Dementia. I gradually quit. During the process I felt like I actually had Dementia. After it was over & I felt better, I had No residual feelings that I had dementia. It was caused by the withdrawal...Brain fog & forgetting things...unable to focus & feelings of my skin jumping off my body. It was not that hard but not easy. Your body hates you for quitting. I was very proud when I did it. Dr's don't like to prescribe it anymore, anyway. Good!

Kay said...

Maggie gyllanhal?

Anon said...

@Hope, it's laughably easy to get more than your prescription. people trade pills (one friend trades xanax for pain pills, etc.) , and there are pill mills that will write you as many prescriptions as you want with no questions. i know the one where my pill-popping friends go and they never run out, ever. another friend takes a ton of pills and still has plenty left to sell to others. it's ridiculous.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Carey Mulligan. Husband is lead singer of Mumford and Sons. Has Promising Young Woman coming in April.

Either her or Blunt (Quiet Place 2, John Krasinski)

Brayson87 said...

@Roxanne, Oh glad you got off of that one. It's not a painkiller but I've been hearing about valium withdrawal for years, it's supposed to be one of the worst pharmaceuticals for withdrawal, like potentially fatal seizures, surprised they still prescribe it.

Brayson87 said...

Thanks Seijn, squirrel, Anon, firefly and Hope!

@Anon, At those quantities, how do your friends poop?

Unknown said...

You sweat like you're in a shower, you are cold then hot. You vomit, you run to the toilet every five minutes - your nerves are on fire. You can't sleep, even with sleep meds. It's Hell.

Silkprint said...

Roxanne ...I saw something by Lisa Ling ? Her dad went through the same thing . He had the shakes and still can't remember anything of his hospitalization. I never knew benzos could do that ..for some it is hell . Congrats to you .

Notagoodscreenname said...

Where’s brad Pitt the poster been lately?

Aquagirl said...

This blind doesn’t make sense to me. If she was hooked on pain killers, why wouldn’t she have pills with her when she was doing the reshoots?

Da Fresh Prince said...

@Brayson, I knew someone who just claimed that they didn't. Suffered from horrible stomach pains. Eventually tried to go off and it wasn't pleasant. Anyways, can't answer for Anon but it's just a horrible toll on the human body.

Melissa said...

My first thought was Maggie and Jake G?

Melissa said...

Scratch that....Maggie isn’t foreign-born.

RobertaJoan said...

Similar to heroin withdrawal. Less painful but awful nevertheless. Pain. Possible seizures. Shaking. Possible hallucinations. Weakness. Incoherent speech. Horrible.

RobertaJoan said...

They don't. And the disappearance of peristalsis can become permanent. Most opiate addicts have no idea that their intestines may not return to normal.

Aquagirl said...

And now it begins...Harvey was taken to Bellevue due to ‘chest pains’, rather than to Rikers, which is what the judge ordered.

Mischi said...

I have a neighbour who had to go 4 days without his Percocet and thought he had food poisoning for 1 week. I didn't have the heart to tell him that his intestines are shot.

Another neighbour had been smoking heroin I found out. When her dealer died, she went into withdrawal and everyone thought she was having a psychotic episode. She's a very wealthy artist and has done all kinds of drugs in her life, but recently got hooked on heroin. They had to send her to rehab but nobody knew about her habit.

Do Tell said...

Speaking of medical facilities, Harvey Weinstein was taken to Bellevue Hospital instead of Rikers,after he complained of chest pains. I guess the walker is old hat, time for a new ruse.

Da Fresh Prince said...

That frail old man act is only gonna get him so far. Disgusting.

Tricia13 said...

I'm all out of Summer's Eve so I'm going to have to douche with Clorox instead.

Simon Jenkin said...

since when has lily allen been a "mostly movie actress"??

Sybil said...

stevie nicks went to rehab in the late 80s for klonopin

squirrelmistress said...

suboxone withdrawl is worse than heroin withdrawl.

defhermit said...

Maggie Gyllenhaal?

ladybaus said...

Don't you Gypsy sisters brush your teeth with Clorox as well?

The blinds are running late. I know they will be up soon but stop rocking back and fourth in the corner with your arms cradling your knees. It's not a pleasent sight.

Unknown said...

Is this another blind gossip? I'm New to the site

gigi talks said...

not true. my brother went thru heroin withdrawal. some heroin addicts are put on suboxone during recovery as a withdrawal solution. heroin withdrawal can literally kill you. much worse.
