Daily Blind Item — Big Summer Bomb

nuclear-bomb-conventional-bomb-2

Summer is only a few months away and that means the box office is gearing up to take money in like it’s going out of fashion.

A source informs me that I shouldn’t expect this BIG NAME movie to make any money, however, saying that it’s “a certified bomb at this point” and we should witness the people behind the movie trying to mitigate the damage in the near future.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our movie

Blind Item Revealed — Cameron Diaz

This A-list actress has basically retired at this point. She has no incentive or want to work. The scripts and the offers are coming, but she’s turning them all down.

Who is she?

The Story: Cameron Diaz, 45, Has Retired

Popular Guesses: Keira Knightley / Sandra Bullock / Cameron Diaz

It took almost three years after I posted this for the story to finally be confirmed, but Cameron Diaz quietly retired from acting in 2014 after the release of the box office flop, Annie.

I was told by a very reliable source that Diaz was receiving scripts and offers on a regular basis in late 2015, but was turning them down, citing no interest. At no point did Diaz officially tell anyone that she was retired and, despite not accepting any offers, has still retained an agent (Nick Styne at CAA) and a manager (Rick Yorn at the Firm) for the past four years.

Diaz’s close friend and The Sweetest Thing co-star Selma Blair confirmed last week that the Something About Mary star has officially quit the industry, however. Speaking at the Oscar’s Vanity Fair pre-party in LA, Blair said: ‘I had lunch with Cameron the other day, we were reminiscing about the film. I would have liked to do a sequel but Cameron’s retired from acting, she’s like “I’m done”.

Diaz married Benji Madden in early 2015.

Daily Blind Item — Follow Their Lead

reese_witherspoon_nicole_kidman_getty880655274

You might have noticed that award season was a little different this year. Instead of the focus on the films, shows and the performances, the centre of attention was firmly on the #MeToo movement, industry sexism and female empowerment.

Hollywood might be combating sexism, but it definitely isn’t stopping calculation any time soon.

I’m told many public relations firms and entertainment industry agents were said to admire the way Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon handled the situation and felt that the way they delivered their award speeches was the perfect balance of graceful and meaningful without ever falling into preachy or entitled territory.

Apparently nominated clients were instructed to “follow Nicole and Reese’s lead” and the vast majority listened with the exception of this one A list actress, who may or may not have won the big one.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is the one that didn’t listen?

Who are ones that did?

 

 

Daily Blind Item — Bye, Bye Allowance

We seem to be on a nepotism kid spree at the moment, but this blind item came in and I can’t help but bite.

Apparently this fairly high-profile kid with the famous last name has had his allowance taken away after several 5 figure fashion sprees that maxed out his credit cards.

Maybe he thought dressing like a model would be a career boast?

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our kid?

Daily Blind Item — Overheard at Lunch

Be careful who you talk about in public in Los Angeles.

Executives were reportedly overheard complaining about the salary of this A lister.

‘I thought we stopped paying people that much outright,’ complained one.

‘It should have been half upfront and the rest based on box office,’ responded another.

It was nothing but an incredibly angry rant aimed – for the most part – at the studio.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who were they moaning about?

 

Daily Blind Item — Gay Heir

He has the famous last name, but he’s considered to be the screw-up of the family and causes a lot of conflict between other members.

Do you want to know his big secret?

He’s as gay as the day is long and apparently that is the root of his evil.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our famous screw-up?

Daily Blind Item — Oscar Meltdown

Tradition was broken last night at the Academy Awards when Casey Affleck declined to present the Best Actress category and was replaced by the female duo of Oscar-winners, Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster.

One A list actor was furious about change, lamenting Hollywood and the Academy for pressuring Casey to stand down and trying to present a “feminist agenda”.

‘Now they’re all fucking feminist heros,’ a source quotes the actor as saying. ‘They were the fucking people that knew about that bastard [Weinstein] and still supported him’

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our angry actor?

Daily Blind Item — The Leaker

Jennifer Aniston has reportedly cut out one of her famous friends from her inner circle because she was convinced [name omitted] was leaking personal information to the media.

‘It’s common with non-famous friends and family, but a famous friend? Unbelievable.’

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our talkative friend?

Daily Blind Item — Crazy Commenter

‘Trust me,’ the source expands. ‘If you saw this actress in the street, you would probably do a runner ’cause she’s such a nut. And I was dealing with nonstop emails from her.’

A friend that worked at a popular industry trade told me recently that a former B – maybe A – list actress had been banned several times from commenting on his site.

‘She would post under these weird usernames, but use emails that referenced her real name,’ I’m told. ‘It was really obvious it was her and her opinions on what was happening in the industry were ace, but the arguments with other commenters were too frequent.’

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our crazy commenter?
