West struggled to find acting work after Batman, but had a career resurgence as a voice actor. On Batman's cancellation, West has said, “The only thing I thought is that it would be the end of me, and it was for a bit. But then I realized that what we created in the show … we created this zany, lovable world. I look around and I see the adults — I see you grew up with me, and you believe in the adventure. I never believed this would happen, that I would be up here with illustrious people like yourselves. I’m so grateful! I’m the luckiest actor in the world, folks, to have you still hanging around.”

West died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - Action Film Faces More Star Drama

This big-budget action film is currently in production… and wait until you hear the latest drama on the set!

Blind Gossip has told you before that the cast and crew of this film have had to deal with production delay after production delay. Why? Because the star of the film can’t keep it together!

"All of our delays are because she needs treatment. She’s already been to rehab during production. That was the reason production got shut down an extra week between the [country] unit and the [country] unit."

So, she went to rehab and she’s all better now, right?


"She sometimes leaves on Thursday instead of Friday. If she does show up on Monday, there are delays because she needs time to “recover” from her weekend. She is always leaving early and showing up late because she is “dehydrated” or “exhausted.” Last Tuesday she was two hours late to set because she was “tired.”  Everyone just stood around waiting for her. When she finally showed up on set,  she was completely out of it.

Now they are telling the cast and crew that we need to break production AGAIN for another week!

We are really pissed! This production is already a month behind schedule! An entire MONTH!!!"

Great. Another production delay. What excuse are they giving this time? Dehydration? Exhaustion? Injury? Food poisoning?

"They announced to us that she is now suffering from “pneumonia” and needs to take time off for “treatment”! We all know that is a big lie. The woman clearly needs help, but producers cater to her at everyone else’s expense so their movie doesn’t get bad publicity."

So, this week’s excuse is: Pneumonia!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Argument In The Parking Garage

These two sisters were overheard arguing in a parking garage.

"I was sitting in my car, which was parked near theirs. I couldn’t hear the first part of the conversation, but as they were walking towards me it was obvious that they were having an argument. They weren’t yelling but they were intense and making upset gestures with their hands. Then the first one stopped and said, “If it’s that bad, then just leave him already!” The other one said, “I’m not getting a divorce!” Then the first one said, “How about a separation? Just for a little while?” Then they saw me sitting there and they both stopped talking and just got in their [description of car] and drove away."

Sounds like a plan!

The Hollywood Reporter's Drama Actress Roundtable

The Hollywood Reporter recently gathered Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Lange, Elisabeth Moss, and Chrissy Metz for a drama actress roundtable interview. Here are some of the highlights:

You have tackled ageism, sexism, misogyny, depression, domestic abuse, adultery and rape. When was the last time you were genuinely nervous to tackle a storyline?

OPRAH WINFREY (The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, HBO) I was genuinely nervous to take on the role of Deborah Lacks because look at this table. I come as the least experienced person at this table. I come as a person who has great respect for the craft of acting — and for years interviewing actresses and being inspired by actresses, but not developing the craft. I was really afraid to do that.

Afraid of what, exactly?

WINFREY I was afraid of making a fool of myself! (Laughter.)

NICOLE KIDMAN (Big Little Lies, HBO) That's every day.

REESE WITHERSPOON (Big Little Lies, HBO) What are you talking about?! The Color Purple is so amazing.

WINFREY When was that? That was like 30 years ago now. And let me tell you what actually made me even more intimidated: I just finished doing a film with Reese and Ava DuVernay and Mindy Kaling [A Wrinkle in Time], and I just happened to ask Reese, "How many films have you done?" And you said, "Oh, honey child …" (Laughter.)

WITHERSPOON Do you all know how many movies you've done?

WINFREY You said, "I don't know, 100 or so." I was thinking, "Oh, God, I hope she doesn't ask me because my number will be like, five, maybe?"

CHRISSY METZ (This Is Us, NBC) Oh, I've got you beat. I've done maybe one independent movie.

ELISABETH MOSS (The Handmaid's Tale, Hulu) I don't know if I was nervous about the scenes themselves, but [Margaret Atwood's] book itself is so beloved, so that was my only hesitation. I wanted to make sure that we were going to do the book justice and do it in the way that it should be done or we were going to get in trouble. I don't have any fear with scary stories. That's what I want to do. But I took six weeks to say yes because I wanted to make sure we were going to do a good job.

WINFREY And how did you make sure?

MOSS I spoke to Bruce [Miller], our showrunner, for about an hour and a half. I was in Australia doing the second season of Top of the Lake with Nicole [at the time]. And then I spoke to Warren Littlefield, our EP, and to Hulu. I asked for the second script because I know the second script can be a little bit of a … (Laughter.)

WINFREY Everybody's so excited over the pilot and then … yeah.

MOSS Exactly. Everyone spent 10 years on [the pilot], and then you get the second script and you're like, "Really?! Is there a third one?" And then one night I was thinking about saying no. I just wasn't sure what to do and I couldn't sleep. I don't know if anyone else does this, but if you're thinking about taking a role, I pretend that I said no to see how that feels. I felt terrible and was super jealous of whoever did it and then I knew.

Whether it's The Handmaid's Tale or Feud, much has been made of these shows' relevance in today's political climate. How would they have landed differently if Hillary Clinton were president?

JESSICA LANGE (FEUD: BETTE AND JOAN, FX) We started shooting in September, before the election, and Ryan [Murphy, the showrunner] said he was thinking, "Well, we'll make this piece about misogyny, sexism, ageism, all of this, but come the beginning of the year, it might just be ironic." But of course …

MOSS It wasn't …

LANGE No, we took a different turn, and I think it's more relevant now than it could have possibly been at any other time. I don't think we've ever seen this much misogyny, this much sexism, and I think the fact that we have this story that is set in a particular period, but obviously Hollywood in the 1960s, is just a microcosm of the greater atmosphere that we are all living through now.

Hollywood likes to lock people into lanes, and there is a certain thing they want from you or a role that they expect from you. What is that role? And what are the roles you don't get approached for but you feel like you'd be great at?

METZ Comedy was really my thing, and I guess they were like, "Oh, it's the sad big girl; we better put her in some drama." I'm kidding, but I would love to do comedy. I would also love to do a project that is not about weight. So just a woman who happens to be going for a job interview or whatever. Slowly but surely it will happen.

WITHERSPOON I started a production company five years ago because I was looking at maybe the worst script I've ever read in my entire life and it had two parts for women. I called my agents and said, "This is such a terrible script." They said, "Well, seven women want it so … you're the only one who's not vying for the part." And I thought, "God, if this is what we've come to, I have to get busy." Because you can either complain about a problem or you can be part of the solution.

KIDMAN We created the show for that reason. The other thing is, being a woman and having children, there are so many things I would want to do, but so much of my life is, how do I balance that? If I had my fantasy life, there are so many roles and places and things I'd want to do. I'm now at a point where I have to go, "What is that going to cost me? And what is that going to cost the people I love? Do I want to leave now to do this?" Men have that, but they don't have it in the same way that we have it.

WITHERSPOON They go away and come back and they're a hero. We go away and come back and we have abandoned our children. (Laughs.)

KIDMAN We don't get the choices as much with our careers and our lives because a lot of it is, we have to be there to take care of everything still. Or I do. And so a lot of my fantasy life is that I can go and read a play and then I've done it. I then don't have to go and actually do it because I have done it in my bedroom. And that's what I realized at this stage of my life. That's going to have to be enough.

Christie Brinkley's Gardening Tips

Christie Brinkley recently spoke to People about gardening. Here's what she had to say:

“I always put a bikini on and say, ‘Oh, it is just to wear around the house. I am not going to go anywhere in it. I just want to get a little color while I am gardening.' I run around trimming my begonias to even everything out so I don’t have any tan lines. When you’re naked, you want those parts tanned!...I don’t care how much sunblock you put on, when you’re outdoors as much as I am, you’re going to get some color.”

On sometimes getting spotted in her bikini:
“Where I live there is a side of the island that is the hotel area, and I end up paddle boarding down when I don’t intend to be there. You know what? You can’t really critique a person over 50 — it is just like, if they are brave enough to put on a bikini then you let them be!”

Jared Leto Does Not Want to Be a Daddy

Jared Leto recently sat down for an interview with ES Magazine. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On having no plans to reproduce:
"I think it’s really important to be present if you have children. I have a lot of… things to take care of."

On how his mother inspired him:
"She encouraged me that a creative path is a worthy one. It was really brave of her to do that. The creative path is one that is fraught with imbalance and uncertainty, self-consciousness, fear and doubt."

On reading Frederich Nietzsche as a child:
"The Will to Power is such a fascinating thing. I think we’re probably more responsible for the definition of ourselves than most of us would think. Probably. A great deal of the world thinks that… they may not have as much… authority in their own lives as they do. But I have found that we are… very responsible for our stories. Yep."

On his new house in the Hollywood Hills, which is a disused Air Force case and served as a military film studio:
"God knows what they did here. But it talks. We’ve already had ghost sightings reported by my housekeeper. A handyman quit the project as he had an encounter. But I feel quite at home up here. It’s like a refuge. You’re at the top of this mountain. There’s this breeze coming through. It’s hard to leave."

On method acting:
"I don’t think I need to do it for every role. I mean if I was in Baywatch II, I don’t think I’d need to do it. That would be so much fun, to be in a movie as fun as that. But everyone’s got to do what works for them. Some people can be eating chicken nuggets with a stripper on their lap and then jump right into it. I’ve always just done what I have to do in order to do a good job — and I feel I do a better job when I give a bigger commitment. The shows that stand out with Thirty Seconds to Mars are the ones where I’m willing to cross the line and step into that uncomfortable place of imbalance, where I don’t understand what’s going to happen next. The same is true of climbing."

Bob Saget Talks Younger Girlfriend

Bob Saget, 61, recently sat down for an interview with Closer Weekly to talk about his relationship with Kelly Rizzo, 38, a travel-dining web series host from Chicago. Here's what he had to say:

"I didn’t think I’d have a relationship again. I was kind of in that 'just work, make people happy and take care of your kids until they’re 90’ mindset...She’s a remarkable person, and she’s really talented. She’s got her own website and streaming series called Eat Travel Rock...To be busy and do things you’re passionate about is great. I’m happier today, and I’m the youngest 61-year-old I know!"

Blind Gossip Exclusive Blind Item - How The Actress Controlled The Athlete

Many people don’t understand the lasting impact this actress had on this very famous athlete.

"[Athlete] is a nice guy, but he is a little naive. [Actress] somehow convinced him very early on that talking to his family every day and hanging out with them on every holiday was stupid and damaging him and keeping him from being a man. She said he needed to grow up and say “No” to them. She said that she didn’t let her parents come to all her movie premieres and that she didn’t run home for every birthday or wedding, so his parents shouldn’t expect to go to all his games or expect him to go home for every holiday.

[Athlete] was supposed to be in [his good friend’s] wedding and then literally, the night before the wedding, [Actress] convinced him not to go. So he didn’t. He felt bad when his friends told him that there was a place card with his name on it on the table and that they were upset he didn’t show up.

He used to talk to his family every day. [Actress] constantly teased him about being a “Mommy’s boy” and said that real men grow up and leave the nest and create their own lives. He’s competitive, so she would give him these challenges like, “I’ll bet you can’t go one week without speaking to your family,” and he would do it just to prove he could. Then it became a month, etc.

[Athlete’s siblings] were really worried when he didn’t even call his Mom and Dad to wish them a Happy Birthday. He said he would meet them for lunch to talk about what was going on. They flew out to meet him and waited at the restaurant for hours and hours. [Actress] didn’t want him to go, so he just stood them up. She thought that was a big victory.

We used to joke that she was kind of like an abusive spouse, where she was telling him, “I’m the only person who really cares about you! I’m the only person you can trust! Your family and old friends are bad and they’re just using you and controlling you!” Then she would pick out his new friends and control him.

Even though she’s out of the picture, he’s now out of the habit of being with his family. It would be difficult for him to just go back to the way things were before she cam along."

The Hollywood Reporter's Drama Showrunner Roundtable

The Hollywood Reporter recently gathered Ryan Murphy, Jenji Kohan, Ava DuVernay, David E. Kelley, Noah Hawley, and Lisa Joy for a drama showrunner roundtable interview. Here are some highlights:

Many of you have multiple projects right now. How much industry pressure is there to build an empire?

JENJI KOHAN (Orange Is the New Black, Netflix) There's a lot.

DAVID E. KELLEY (Big Little Lies, HBO; Goliath, Amazon) I think we should defer to Ryan.

RYAN MURPHY (Feud: Bette and Joan and American Horror Story: Roanoke, FX) Once you get an opportunity to get a yes, you lean into the yes because you're used to years and years of no. If you are so lucky to have something that works, that's a dream come to life — and if you get another dream, your impulse is to move toward it. What I've learned to do is to have a group of three or four really strong collaborators who can help me, who also have the same dream.

NOAH HAWLEY (Fargo and Legion, FX) I think there's a freelance muscle where you know it's feast or famine. Certainly as a showrunner in broadcast, you put everything you have into a show and they cancel it after two episodes, and then you have nothing. The more things you have going, the less you're riding that roller coaster.

Was there ever a point where you looked at your plate and realized it was overflowing? And if so, what did you do about it?

HAWLEY Well, yeah. For me, what I didn't realize was: At the point at which the show that you make is successful, then whatever you say yes to is going to get made. I was still in the old paradigm. So that's how I found myself with so many things. I've learned to say no. Well, I'm not sure I have yet, but I'm learning. There will be a no soon.

How hard is it for the rest of you to say no? Do you have the confidence to say no?

KELLEY It gets easier when you're older. If you look around this table, they're all good at what they do — and with success comes the burden to be successful.

AVA DUVERNAY (Queen Sugar, OWN) Embedded in that very question is the idea that privilege does not apply. For me to say no — in my mind, there may not be another chance. There's a natural tension with anyone to keep the chance for the open door. When you add to that issues of representation and marginalization that go on top of the artist's feeling of, "Can I get my thing made?" it becomes challenging for me to say no. I get an opportunity from Netflix. "Do you want to make a doc?" "Yes, I want to make a doc." Apple: "Would you like to make a commercial?" "Yes, I will make that commercial." I'm running around doing everything because I love it, but also because there is the fear that any artist has that there won't be another question asked to say no to. And on top of that, the fear that the industry might shift in terms of its attention to women right now or the current renaissance regarding people of color, specifically black folks on TV, and then you're left with nothing.

LISA JOY (Westworld, HBO) There is that pressure not only to be prolific but to not f— up. And especially when you feel the added burden of being a woman who is doing this now. I represent opportunities for other women and other people of color, and I'm trying to start my own kind of movement.

KOHAN Everyone loves a new baby. And giving birth to a new show, it's a high. You get a hit off that and it's hard to turn that down, especially if you've been grinding something out for a really long time and it's a little more awkward, a little more adolescent. The thought of, "Oh, you can start fresh and create something new" is exciting.

Ryan, in making Feud, what was the most surprising thing you learned about the entertainment business and a woman's role within it?

MURPHY Probably that nothing has really changed. For me, talking to a lot of the crewmembers who were older and, specifically, talking to Jessica [Lange] and Susan, who have been around since the '80s, that was the most painful thing: how women are treated and the ageism in our culture. There has really not been that much progression. The saddest part about it was hearing Susan and Jessica talk about the last years of Davis' and Crawford's lives and their own current creative lives: how difficult that has been for them and how much they have to give and want to contribute. And they both have said, you hit 40, 42, and suddenly the phone stops ringing, and that's right when you're figuring it out. So that was not fun.

Lauren Conrad Talks Pregnancy

The Hills star Lauren Conrad is on the cover of this month's Fit Pregnancy and Baby. Here's what she had to say:

Fun before fam
“I always thought, ‘Someday, I’ll have a family.’ But it wasn’t until I was married that it was a real conversation. I think your 20s are about figuring out who you are and finding a career. Then once I got married, William and I wanted a couple years to ourselves. When you’re a mother, you’re no longer your own top priority, and that idea was a little scary to me. But we’re ready for a baby now.”

Eager grandparents
“Our parents did pressure us for grandkids, in an emotionally playful but persistent way. They would team up on us, which could get intense. My parents were young when they had babies—they had me at 25—and they loved it, so they encouraged us to do it sooner rather than later.”

Her big OMG moment
“Aside from William, the first person I told about my pregnancy was my best friend, because my initial reaction was to freak out—in a good way. I wanted to be able to tell our parents later in a calmer, celebratory fashion. But my girlfriend has known me since we were in elementary school, so she was my choice for a freakout.”

Bye, wine
“I must have been eating more cheese and wine than I realized, because I’ve really been missing them. I haven’t had crazy cravings, but I’ve had some food aversions. For a while I couldn’t eat meat.”

The sharenting question
“I’m going to have to figure out how much of motherhood to share on social media. Obviously you want to protect your child in every way you can. At the same time, my brand is based on being accessible and sharing the milestones of my life, and I’m so excited about it all. I’ll find a middle ground.”

Love for her little
“I’m thrilled to be having a boy. I really wanted a boy. My husband kept saying, ‘We just want a healthy baby.’ And I’d say, ‘But a boy would be nice!’ I was a wild little tomboy, so I think I understand boys. My mom always told me that nobody loves you like a son does, especially when he’s young.”

Inner circle welcome!

“Once he’s here, all my friends and family are invited over—the more the merrier. Especially since it’s our first, I want to make sure we have lots of people around for support and to be sure that we’re doing everything correctly. Both of our families live only 15 minutes away, so that’s nice for babysitting!”
