Blind Items Revealed #5

February 8, 2020

The a-hole actor/singer is gloating to friends over the critical mauling of the latest DC movie. He says if they had cast him to reprise his old role, it would have made things perfect.

Jared Leto/Birds Of Prey

Watched DARK KNIGHT on a flight today(again), damn it just feels as awesome as the first time I saw the movie! Rip HEATH JOKER LEDGER!

Freed Weave said...

Ugh, he's an a-hole and a creep... Probably the worst outstanding personality combo ever.

Fred84 said...

What critical mauling? Birds of Prey has gotten prettydecent reviews overall.

Me said...

Damn. Leto's really obsessed his Joker wasn't lauded over.

Isn't he?

Here's the thing... Kids have to like it for parents to like it.

Parents buy the tickets.

And I love that the a-hole had them proceeds with a girl villain kick butt movie with OUT him

hunter said...

Funny, you would think such a good-looking guy who's apparently impervious to aging and has a giant schlong (confirmed by a good friend who had some private moments with him during which he was WAY too pushy so she left kinda scared) - anyway - given ALL THAT plus he is quite talented in my opinion..

Everyone still thinks he's a dick.

That's why looks and a big peen aren't everything folks.

hunter said...

no she did not have sex with him but did notice there was a baseball bat in his room, something I've noticed among men who want to appear more masculine/powerful.

There are also a lot of lone baseball bats to be found on your average trading floor of a bank - make of that what you will but I think there's a fair correlation here.

It's at a 79% on RT...doesn't sound like a critical mauling to me.

Magnolia Melee said...

@hunter interesting observation! I've noticed with my husband's line of work, the d-bags would have a dedicated "Me" wall in their house. So fucking obnoxious.

hunter said...

omg @Magnolia - please please tell us what line of work your husband is in, that sounds hilarious.

Angela said...

The blind supposes that Leto has friends, which is totally unrealistic.

Magnolia Melee said...

Haha @Hunter military pilot....we were told being humble is important in this job. So whenever we are at someone's house and they'd have an entire wall dedicated to pictures of them by their aircraft, etc. My husband and I just chuckle and shake our heads. Nothing wrong with being proud but good God. Lol. If you'd like a mental image of what these guys are like, picture Dylan McDermott in the show LA to Vegas. Haha

hunter said...

I meannnn.... they get to fly giant penises through the sky so I kinda get it.

Thanks for the answer, explains a lot. ;)

PhillyWilly said...

I have a baseball bat in my room. @hunter what is it’s underlying meaning? im
Missing something. I live in a shithole Sanctuary city, and I got rid of my gun bc of my kids. So I have a bar under my bed and a blackjack in my umbrella stand. Anyone comes thru that door, they better have a Hard fucking head.

PhillyWilly said...

Bat not bar

TeeHee@U said...

Yah. I am a female, but when I lived alone in grad school/ first half of 20s I slept with a bat beside in my bedroom as a just in case precautionary. My Dad made me promise lol. I feel like for those who don't want/ cannot own guns and want a form of defense a bat is standard. JS.

Magnolia Melee said...

@hunter hahaha! Perfect!

Keasha said...

To be perfectly honest, I’d rather hear Jared Leto sing than act.
Just my two cents

KittensRUs said...

I think he's a dick, but he's not wrong about the movie. It would have been a lot better with the Joker in it. The studio was entirely too willing to let Margot Robbie do whatever she wanted and woke "girl power" movies flop every time -- this was no exception.

fluffer said...

Birds of Prey is up there with one of the worst movies i have ever scene. so bad that both my daughters and nieces said ''lets gtfo of here'' with 2 minutes to go

Christina said...

Birds of Prey has good reviews, but is not doing the domestic box office they were expecting it to do. It's not quite a flop, but it def not a hit. I think it looks horrible and will not be seeing it, especially after reading fluffer's comment.

Unknown said...

Leto Joker is just retarded.

MissDavie said...

Jared Leto should have done gay porn and that should have been the height of his career.

Freebird said...

Omg I’d never want a bat near my head when I’m sleeping. Some quiet burglar could bash my head on. Not giving intruders ideas. 😂

Freebird said...

*in

TeeHee@U said...

Intruders already have ideas in their head of what they want from your apartment/ or you (rape/murder).

All anyone can do with a criminal intruder welding knives/ guns is to combat and stand a fighting stance as the victim. Unless a bat in your room would make you think of self harm ....then...Swing. Batter. Bat.)

Guns/Knives do not hurt people. People hurt with guns/knives. Give yourself at least a fighting chance.

With my knowledge of the line of work...do it. Protect yourself as you see fit.

Do Tell said...

So he's laughing about Birds of Prey being a bomb and that the addition of Jared Leto would be the icing on the TNT, making it a perfect bomb?

Maybe he ought to rethink his statement.

Karma said...

Is Jared still bemoaning that he went anorexic & dawned Leggs to be in Dallas Buyers Club? Joaquin Phoenix he is not. And River Phoenix---none of them will EVER be (including DiCaprio).100% TRUTH.

Lucky13 said...

Funny, Birds Of Prey wasn't a bomb and people seemed to love it (apart from obviously Jared Leto and misogynists who whine about "woke" movies, especially one about characters who were evolved by certain comic book writers into being genuinely good characters on their own without having to be some prick's sexual fantasy -- case in point, when Harley broke up with The Joker in the comics and started a FWB type relationship with her best friend, Poison Ivy).

Jared and literally anyone complaining about "woke" movies or this "bombing" in their own version of reality can shove it up their holes, since they don't provide any other reason for being useful to society.

TwoDots said...

Leto’s joker was abysmal, and that’s putting it nicely

TeeHee@U said...

"Birds of Prey (or, as it’s called online and in theaters, Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey) earned $17.115 million over its second Fri-Sun frame, giving it a $59.273 million ten-day cume. It should earn around $19.4 million over the Fri-Mon frame for a $61.6 million 11-day domestic cume by Monday night. It earned $23 million overseas from 78 markets, dropping 46% overall from its holdover territories. The $82 million-budgeted flick has earned $83.6 million overseas and $142.9 million worldwide in just under two weeks. That 48% drop is the very definition of “complicated.” It’s quite good for a “big” comic book movie. Had it opened bigger and still held its drop below 50%, this would be an unmitigated win. But the lower-than-expected opening weekend figures means that it’s merely hanging in there."

The budget does not even count for marketing. It is technically a bomb.

TeeHee@U said...

79% both in audience and critical response. I never listen to critical response, but, audience response. So C+ for both..

Do Tell said...

It's not that it was a bomb, it's that his statement was stupidly constructed and kind of backfires at him.

If you're saying the movie was a bomb and you would have made it perfect, doesn't that mean you're saying you would have made it the *perfect* bomb?

el said...

this doesn't even make sense since it's done well.

Clark Green said...

He is a scrawny little douche. Movie was panned because the movie sucks, and Robbie cannot carry a movie on her own. Adding Leto only would have made to movie bomb even worse (if possible).

Brayson87 said...

Right now it seems like DC has no idea what they're doing while Marvel continues to print money for Disney. Every time DC has a hit it seems like an accident.

Velvet Voice said...

Clark left me thinking when he said Robbie couldnt carry a movie on her own ... but there s an actress who looks very much like her who carried perfectly "READY OR NOT" (Samara weaving)
