Lainey - Why She's So Cranky

Welcome to the world, our new nephew!

To celebrate, here's a new blind item from LaineyGossip April 4th:

She isn’t eating. She hasn’t been eating for weeks, hellbent on losing what she calls some extra padding but what everyone else calls … nothing. There is nothing to lose. But still she needs to lose it.

Started dieting furiously a couple of months ago but wasn’t seeing results quickly enough so she’s cut back the food and as a result has turned into a total hag, chewing people out during production meetings, yelling at catering staff for daring to bring food near her, and getting into a little shoving match with her own publicist, who has the unfortunate position of having to attend to her as she ramps up promotion, over scheduling.

On the plus side, she is indeed growing ever slimmer. But the thinness is now accompanied by a telltale glassy look in her eyes which isn’t entirely unfamiliar. Being skinny can make you dependent and cranky and weak…

Which is why she hasn’t been able to finish a day’s work all week, always begging off early, complaining of the flu, or a migraine...and now the project is behind schedule, her agent has been called, and a talking-to is in the works. Career not in jeopardy… yet. But probably soon if she doesn’t start eating.


Update April 28 - It's NOT Kate Bosworth, Renee Zellweger, Kate Beckinsale, Katherine Heigl, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon (but close), Christina Ricci, Kristen Bell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilary Swank, Kelly Ripa, Victoria Beckham.

I don't know but the "glassy-eyed look" reminds me of how she called Uma Thurman glassy-eyed a while back. I had thought that was a hint about something.

Kate Bosworth?

Don't think it's Jennifer-have you seen her lately.She's looking the best we've seen her in years! I think Uma has started filming in NYC..How about Amy Adams?She's lost a lot of weight and is filming now.

Lainey today...

Lainey

PS. Kate Beckinsale is not cranky. Also not Katherine Heigl. And not Jennifer Aniston either.

Page six mag on Sunday mentions "the new rumor circulating about a certain blonde star pulling out of a movie because of anorexia and NOT rehab, as was reported"...
Not sure if this is the same BI as above-if it is, may narrow things down. I would guess Sienna Miller but have her pegged for the other blind. Kirsten Dunst just started filming "All Good Things" w/ Ryan Gosling and Brittany Snow (history of anorexia) is filming "The Vicious Kind". ??? Just guesses

Lainey says Reese Witherspoon is "close, sort of". Now who is that hinting towards? I am thinking Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Christina Ricci

Lauren said...

I think Kirsten Dunst is a great guess... She is currently filming, she was just in rehab (for whatever reason) and she's "close, sort of" to Reese in that she was Jake's girlfriend for a couple years.

PS. Kristen Bell is not cranky. Also not Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Soooo who else is "close to" Reese Witherspoon?

blurry vice said...

Thanks anonymous... we do update exclusions daily.

Lauren, I think you are on to something with Kirstin Dunst.

Anonymous said...

Could it be Jennifer Garner-she's filming..looks very thin..friends with Reese?

Kristine said...

Rachel McAdams?

blurry vice said...

Today we have a hint among the latest exclusions. Lainey says "no awards for this anorexic".

blurry vice said...

I also just read on Eonline, someone is claiming that Katie Holmes is starving herself to be more like Posh.

I like the Rachel McAdams guess. I saw her in Georgetown a few weeks back and she is TINY.

I say KiKi

duffgrl said...

I like Dunst too(see my 4/8 post,I think I was the first one to mention her)She does seem to fit w/ being "close" to Reese.
I don't know about McAdams. She was filming "State of Play" in DC but I think filming is over(?)
-Katie Holmes is not filming anything, so, not her but-that poor thing. She has looked awful in recent photos.

Maybe Courteney Cox- filming Bedtime Stories?

blurry vice said...

I do agree that it could be Courteney Cox Arquette. Lainey eliminated her for a different blind yesterday. And they wasy she said it, "this one isn't Courteney Cox" makes it sounds like another recent one IS her. Could be this one. She is so skinny.

Selma Blair?

I think Lainey hinted that this one was about Selma Blair today in her Smutty Tingles links. Makes sense with the Reese Witherspoon (but close) hint she posted a while back. They were in Cruel Intentions together.
