Today's Blind Items - The Dinner

Do you remember the movie, The Freshman? Yeah, not so memorable, but it did lead to a dinner that was held for several years by this actor who is rarely ever in the blinds. His most famous appearance in the blinds was in the first few months of the blog's existence. 

At the time the movie was made, he was one of the biggest actors in the world. Not necessarily the biggest star, but one of the biggest actors. He is foreign born and is an Oscar winner/nominee. Shortly after the movie came out, he got together with several friends who owned land and hunted in the middle of nowhere. He also then used his contacts to have meat brought in from Asia which would never be allowed to be hunted in Europe or here. He got a little of this and a little of that from several corners of the globe. He invited a dozen of his friends who brought the best liquor they could find and they had a dinner. 

He has done the same thing with roughly the same dozen people for almost thirty years. He stopped during the pandemic, but two months ago on the autumnal equinox, the group was back together and eating all kinds of different things. It really kind of goes against everything he has talked about in his career, but at the same time, it seems like something that fits in with the real him, rather than the perceived him.
