Blind Gossip Blind Item - Beauty And The Perv

This All-American beauty seems to have led a sweetheart of a life. You’ve seen her on TV and on magazine covers a million times, and she’s been involved in relationships with several famous men. She’s the kind of woman men write songs about.

You know what wasn’t so sweet? Discovering that one of the men she was married to was a perverted jerk!

"She knew he liked women in general, but it seemed unthinkable that he could be such a perv. That was the real reason for the divorce. Even her daughter knew he was twisted. By the time she was ten or eleven, she didn’t want Dad around if any of her friends were over. He was always trying to photograph them, and he would “accidentally” walk in on them when they were getting dressed for swimming or for sleepovers. That guy is one sick fuck."

If you have been wondering why her former husband dates women the same age as his daughter, wonder no more.

Allison Williams Talks Moving On

Allison Williams is on the cover of March's Allure Magazine. Here's what she had to say in the accompanying interview:

“I love Marnie, but I don’t feel like I need to play her a million times.. I wake up every morning thinking I need to be edgier. I read very one-note. Teacher’s pet, Goody Two-shoes. I’d hate to be annoying. Who wants to see movies with someone annoying in them? But it’s hard for me to paint myself as anything but whatever it is I come across as—which is pretty together. It’s not that I’m hiding stories about being drunk on Sunset Boulevard or something. It’s just genuinely how I’m wired, and it’s why I was right to play Marnie—because I do want to do everything right and in the best way possible. And abandoning perfectionism was a real struggle that I had to go through when I realized it’s not possible. But I’m a big note-writer, a big gift-giver. It’s how I’m wired, and it’s so boring and annoying.

...The fact that I’m working on all these other things means that I’m not spending my spare time in a spiral of anxiety. Because ten milligrams of Lexapro is not enough to keep me sane about the amount of worry that I have about all of it. It feels much better to work tirelessly on all these other things that are kind of unsolvable and thus deeply satisfying than to just sit somewhere and think, How do I harden myself publicly? How do I make myself seem edgier when I truly lead an un-edgy life? I mean, then I got married, and now I have this dog who’s perfect. It just gets worse and worse.

I don’t want to be any more interesting than I am. I love the life that I get to live, which is one of real independence and privacy and autonomy. And I get to experience the city in a way that—if I may name-drop for a second—someone like Katy Perry, who’s a really good friend, doesn’t get to. She doesn’t get to do what we just did. That’s not a universe she can experience anymore...I think if I’d used my middle name professionally—Howell Williams—I’d have a totally different career. I’d be an indie darling. I’d be fighting with Greta Gerwig for parts. I’d have gone blonde earlier.”

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Three's Not Company

Three's apparently not company for this guy...

This B lister that's mostly seen on television is known in certain LA communities and circles for loving a threesome. It's unknown if he has a wife / girlfriend / partner, but if he does, then she must either be okay or unaware of his common proclivity. 

I just hope she doesn't check his collar and notice TWO shades of foreign lipstick.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Leighton Meester Grows Up

Leighton Meester recently sat down for an interview with Rogue Magazine, where she reflected on Gossip Girl and looked ahead to her new Fox show Making History. Here's what she had to say:

On Gossip Girl:
"I think I'm different. I started Gossip Girl 10 years ago when I was 20, and I'm 30 now. I loved doing it, and now I'm doing something else that I love, and something new that's a little bit more my taste as a 30 year old, something I've grown into. I feel so lucky that I can have such amazing fans and they either grew up with [the show] or they're growing up with it now. I've also heard people say, ‘Oh we watch that as a throwback."

On Making History:
"When I went into [the show], and when I decided that I wanted to work consistently on something, I had criteria. I read other [scripts] too, but this was just the one. It was love at first sight. I'm proud to work on a show that uplifts the female lead, and has a not-so-subtle yet approachable commentary on the treatment and mistreatment of women throughout the ages."

On working on a follow up to her 2014 album Heartstrings:
"I really have been missing writing, so I've been doing it on and off [for] the last year or so. I worked with awesome people when I released my first album in 2014. I'm hoping to do it again. I'm writing a bit about my current state of mind, which brings me to a happier place, but I still find a lot of inspiration from past experiences, and that leads to some more melancholy that I just can't escape."

Leann Rimes Talks Secret to Happy Marriage

Leann Rimes recently sat down for an interview with People, where she shared the secrets to her happy marriage with second husband Eddie Cibrian. Here's what she had to say:

“It just works. We respect each other; respect is a big deal, and once you lose that, you’ve kind of lost everything. He’s a wonderful father and a really good man. He’s kind to me, and I reciprocate.”

On her new album:
“The message of love strongly comes through this record. We were writing about love from many different angles, from giving it, receiving it, to making it to standing up for it. I think my heart is placed very prominently on this record.”

On the prospect of having children:
“Yeah. I’ve said it a million times, so it’s the same answer! But I’m so busy right now with this [album and tour], and I would want to 100-percent give my focus to that. I’m in such a good place, and I’m growing and learning every day.”

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Glass Man

If this male musician ever asks you to spend the night with him, you can definitely expect a weird little journey!

While it is easy for him to find someone to go him with him for the night, before he rocks you all night long he’s going to play it safe by verifying your age and getting your consent for certain activities.

"My friend said that he asked to check her ID, I guess to make sure she was over 18. He also asked if he could tape her giving her consent to do some special things with her. She said yes. He asked her if she was into blindfolds and handcuffs and dildos and a whole list of shit like that.

She thought he was going to use those things on her, but he wanted her to use those things on him! She said that the strangest thing he owned was a dildo made out of glass. WTAF? Yeah, she used it on him. She said that was the thing he liked best and that it made him explode in less than a minute."

Justin Timberlake Reflects on the Past

Justin Timberlake was recently profiled in The Hollywood Reporter. Here are some highlights from that interview:

On growing up famous:
"I was about 15 or 16 years old. We'd just given a concert in Germany at a festival on this huge field. And we were in the tour bus afterward, driving on a dirt road, and I looked out the window and saw all these young, impressionable females running after the bus. I think we can all agree that I did not have a normal childhood...I have some faint images from my childhood, but no, I can't really remember not being famous."

On how fatherhood has changed his perspective:
"You go through your life with your own traumas, big and small, and think, 'It's not that bad, I have a lot to be thankful for, my parents did the best they could.' But then you have a child of your own, and suddenly it opens all the floodgates, and you're like, 'No, no, no! That childhood trauma really did fuck me up!' "

On why he left NSYNC:
"We were on a stadium tour, and I just felt like the whole thing was too big. It started as a fun snowball fight that was becoming an avalanche. And, also, I was growing out of it. I felt like I cared more about the music than some of the other people in the group. And I felt like I had other music I wanted to make and that I needed to follow my heart."

On pursuing both acting and singing:
"I want to do both things. I really do idolize the golden era of Hollywood, when actors were required to sing and move. But I'm just following my gut in the decisions that I make about what I'm going to do next. I'm mostly just glad this is all working out because I really can't do anything else. I'm not gifted at anything else."

On trying to master the work-life balance:
"At first, it broke me down. Those first eight months [of fatherhood] felt like those old [Ed Sullivan] shows where people are balancing spinning plates on poles — except if you drop one, they die."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Never Another Woman

We’ve told you before that this TV Show would be stretching out the search for a co-host ad infinitum.

The current star likes being the ONLY star. There’s more attention and more money in being the star of a show versus being a star of a show. She is in no hurry to see the seat next to her filled.

A new rumor just popped up that a woman from another show (that is experiencing its own personnel shuffle) is a serious contender for the slot.

NO.

"For all her feminist positioning, [our host] would NEVER have another woman as her permanent co-host! If there is ever another regular co-host, it will be a MAN. She needs a masculine foil. Even a gay masculine foil would be preferable to a woman. For the time being, though, she has to pretend that she is considering a wide variety of people."

Tom Hiddleston Is Talking About Taylor Swift Again

Please, somebody stop him! Tom Hiddleston recently sat down for an interview with GQ, where he felt it necessary to talk about Taylor Swift. Again. Here's what he had to say:

“Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time. Of course it was real.”

And about that tank top:
“The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ’Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ’I’ve got this.’ ” (The friend pulled out the "I ♥ T.S." tank top that Taylor’s friends are contractually obligated to own.) “And we all laughed about it. It was a joke. It was a joke. Among friends.”

Think he's done talking about it? Guess again:
“I have to be so psychologically strong about not letting other people’s interpretations about my life affect my life. A relationship exists between two people. We will always know what it was. The narratives that are out there altogether have been extrapolated from pictures that were taken without consent or permission, with no context. Nobody had the context for that story. And I’m still trying to work out a way of having a personal life and protecting it, but also without hiding. So the hardest thing is that that was a joke among friends on the Fourth of July...I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing.”

Please someone shut him up already:
"I only know the woman I met. She’s incredible. A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work. A relationship in the limelight takes work. And it’s not just the limelight. It’s everything else. So we decided to go out for dinner, we decided to travel.”

Read the rest of the interview at GQ; there might be some parts that aren't about Taylor Swift.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks (Lack of) Oscar Nomination

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who was one of the stars of Nocturnal Animals, recently sat down for an interview with Vulture where he talked about awards season. Here's what he had to say:

“There was relief when my wife told me that I hadn’t been nominated. Coming home from the Globes with an award was brilliant, but I’ve been promoting Nocturnal for six months. As an actor, you prefer to put that kind of energy into something creative. It was good to finally step off the train. You do kind of go, I’m losing my mind.”

On going method for his Nocturnal Animals role:
“I wanted to feel toxic from the inside out. My wife is very loving and supportive — but it was definitely great when I finished the shoot.”

On press attention surrounding his wife, who is 23 years his senior:
“The attention was intrusive. But having to deal with that early in my career probably got me to a place where I can more quickly just go, ‘Oh, fuck it’ instead of wanting to rip someone’s head off for asking questions I don’t like.”

On what's next after his Golden Globe win:
“The experience is all still very fresh. But there’s definitely a feeling of ‘Strike when the iron’s hot.’ I know it’ll blow over eventually, but there’s been more meeting people from studios. It’s an interesting position to be in where you’re suddenly getting considered for projects. I want to work with great directors. I’ve picked films based on the script or the character and seen them collapse because the directors were not strong visionaries.”

The World's Most Romantic Post

For the last few years we thought addressing any baseless rumors with silence was the best way. Besides, who wants to respond to made up stories about "friends backstabbing friends", "cheating exes", or "cast members exiting shows" on low-brow websites like hollywoodlife that are just perpetuating trends that preceded us. Yuck. I now see that silence was taken as an opportunity to fill in the blanks with even more falsities, and juicer stories, and we, yes WE, believe we have a moral responsibility to young girls to end that narrative, because at the end of all of this, those young girls are the ones who lose. Their passion and endless devotion for a tv show is being taken advantage of, replaced with feelings of anger through divisive techniques, & even worse, their minds are being shaped & molded as their view of themselves, other girls, & what those dynamics should look like are being formed. So here's to putting an end to all those fake stories of on set jealousy, betrayal, made-up-friendships lost & women hating women. Because at the end of the day, that's what this is about: teaching girls that you have to hate other girls only breeds a generation of women who believe you have to hate other women. And that's what these magazines, websites and blogs don't understand. That is the harmful unintended consequence of their bullshit stories and we have a moral responsibility to fix that. Let's turn this page together, as we all walk into the next chapter peacefully. And finally, let's use this as an example of how important it is to stop this trend of writing horrible headlines about women, painting us as bitter, angry, insecure, heartbroken, childless, feuding, backstabbing monsters because whether we want to admit it or not, it changes the way all women view themselves. And shame on these websites for now targeting an even younger demographic, instilling this at an earlier age when girls are even more susceptible, more vulnerable and more malleable. When we write these headlines we teach hate. I've seen it firsthand. Let's shift what we put into the universe starting now, & hopefully we will start to see a shift in the way we treat each other & view ourselves❤

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Sizzle is a Fizzle

We’ve told you before that if actors play a romantic couple on film, it is absolutely necessary for them to carry some romantic chemistry over to the promotions in order to draw interest. Even if they are married or involved with someone else, they have to sell the sizzle in order to get people to buy the steak.

Well, these two actors have been doubling down on the sexy talk when being interviewed about their new film… but they are having a tough time sizzling!

"She has stepped up her game from last time, but it is exhausting for her to try to pretend she finds him attractive and to do the intimate, teasing thing with him. She wanted to know when she could start doing interviews without him. She really would like to be as far away from him as possible. Then she’s not reminded about how much she hates him and can actually say nice things about him."

Yikes! Nothing like a little shade to turn a sizzle into a fizzle.

By the way, her big beef with him is that he was critical of her failing to actively promote their last film together.

Anthony Bourdain Talks Travel and Moving On

Anthony Bourdain recently sat down for an interview with The New Yorker; here are some of the highlights:

On his original pitch for Parts Unknown:
“I travel around the world, eat a lot of shit, and basically do whatever the fuck I want.” 

On being driven:
“I’m a guy who needs a lot of projects. I would probably have been happy as an air-traffic controller.”

On his lifestyle:
“I change location every two weeks. I’m not a cook, nor am I a journalist. The kind of care and feeding required of friends, I’m frankly incapable of. I’m not there. I’m not going to remember your birthday. I’m not going to be there for the important moments in your life. We are not going to reliably hang out, no matter how I feel about you. For fifteen years, more or less, I’ve been travelling two hundred days a year. I make very good friends a week at a time.”

On fatherhood (his daughter Ariane is almost 10):
“I’m shocked by how happy my daughter is. I don’t think I’m deluding myself. I know I’m a loving father.” He paused. “Do I wish sometimes that, in an alternative universe, I could be the patriarch, always there? Tons of kids? Grandkids running around? Yes. And it looks good to me. But I’m pretty sure I’m incapable of it.”

The article is quite long, but definitely worth the read if you're a Bourdain fan. Read the full article at the New Yorker.

In fact, this weekend seemed to be all about the boys. He actually brought a couple of male friends with him. He also enjoyed talking to several handsome young men at various events.

"There was one in particular he seemed to like. He works as a [profession] and he’s in his 30’s. Good-looking dude. Really chiseled. Works out a lot. [Actor] asked him if he had any workout tips. [Actor] said that he was interested in fitness and he asked him for his phone number and said that maybe they could get together and do a workout sometime."

Or they could just as easily get together for a cup of coffee. Or a massage.

Or maybe it really is just an innocent guys-working-out thing and our Actor is just looking for some tips. Some nice, masculine tips.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Sudden Concerns

A lot of concerns about the mental health of this once A list personality all of a sudden. 

"She considers the last few years to be the worst of her life," says the source, "and it's been taking a real toll on her over the last couple of months."

Hopefully this doesn't change her view on life, but the source believes that it will. 

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who is our former A list personality?

Scarlett Johansson Talks Female Problems

Scarlett Johansson is on the cover of the March issue of Marie Claire Magazine. Here are some highlights from her interview:

On presenting at the Oscars in 2015:
"I had to bring my breast pump, because I was nursing and every ounce is like liquid gold. Somehow, Mark [Consuelos] got ahold of my breast pump—in a bag with all the milk, ice packs in there, and shit. He grabbed it out of my hand. [He was trying to help,] but our cars got separated. Apparently, Kelly [Ripa] looked over, and she was like, 'Wait a minute—is that Scarlett's breast pump? We've got to get it back!' because she knew how panicked I would be. We finally ended up at the same party three hours later, and Mark was like, 'I'm so sorry.'"

On the controversy surrounding her casting as the lead in Ghost in a Shell: "I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders."

On being the highest-grossing actress in Hollywood history: "Just because I'm the top-grossing actress of all time does not mean I'm the highest paid. I've had to fight for everything that I have. It's such a fickle and political industry."

On being reluctant to discuss the wage gap: "Some people felt I should talk about my personal struggle in order to shed a spotlight on the greater issue. Maybe I'm being presumptuous, but I assumed it was obvious that women in all positions struggle for equality. It's always an uphill battle and fight. My experience with my close female friends and family is that the struggle is real for everybody. Everyone has been discriminated against or harassed—sexism is real."

On her daughter watching her in movies: "I don't think she's allowed to see any of the movies I've made, other than Sing. I'll be happy when she's old enough to show her movies where I kicked some ass."

On no subject being off-limits with her friends: "I want to talk about what's happening with your vagina. I want to know why it hates you or whatever. I want to compare and contrast notes. I want to talk about sex and all that stuff."


On celebrities being vocal about politics: "[I believe] that it is really important to hear people in various positions of power voice their opinions, their story. Why not? Why can't I have the voice? Why can't I use my platform? What's the point of having it if you don't use it? If you don't want to get involved, please, the noise is loud enough. But if you've got something to say, say it."
