Lainey - Bad Haired and Bug-Eyed

From Lainey 7/24 -
Bad Haired and Bug Eyed

Which actor has been much too egotistical and much too energetic on press tour recently? Let’s start with the ego first:

He’s not exactly Brad Pitt or the GMD on fame terms and still he travels with a crazy security team and insists on sweeping every location before he will enter. Who the f&ck are you??? Even his own management is snickering at his grossly exaggerated sense of entitlement – hit movies don’t necessarily equate to international superstardom, and while his box office might be lucrative, his celebrity status is decidedly modest.

Still…he insists on super stealth, secret service style maneuvers, and has hilariously mandated that while in public he be referred to by “code name” only. It becomes even funnier when the newly single megalomaniac happens upon an attractive woman. The woman is hustled through stairwells and hallways before their tryst – a procedure so elaborate that last week, his chosen partner for the evening ended up so rattled by the time she arrived at his room, she was no longer in the mood to participate.

And his paranoia is getting worse. It started out as a quirk - several weeks ago he was enthusiastic and perhaps a little particular, but not a paranoid freak. A little blow here and there for extra energy though has become more of a habit and he is getting CRANKED at work. To the point where more than a few journalists have remarked about his over-animated behaviour, as a timid reporter from Asia was frightened and confused during an interview when he became angry at her for refusing to sing karaoke with him. Sorry…I’m a bitch. I had to laugh about that.

Be thankful, dude, for a good publicity team. And for the fact that at the end of the day, it’s really only you.


Update 7/29 - Lainey has eliminated Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, Shia LaBeouf, Joaquin Phoenix, Mike Myers, Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

** Top suspect: Brendan Fraser **

Update 1/14/09 - Lainey hints this is Brendan Fraser as we suspected. See comments.

Either John C. Reily or Will Ferrel though I haven't been able to locate if either are newly single.

Jason Statham?

It sounds just like Brendan Fraser.

I agree, he did just get recently divorced as of Dec. 2007 and while well known, not as big as the stated names.

Bug eyed yes! Bad hair?

She's always snarking (I love her!) about his nasty plugs; it's got to be Brendan Fraser. I swear I remember her saying something about his googly eyes, too.

Lainey pretty much confirmed this is Brendan Fraser- read today's blog. Also the Lainey Lurv Facebook group has put this under its solved blind items as BF.

It has to be Brendan Frasier...in Lainey's Smutty Tingles yeaterday she posted a link to a pic of Richard Simons that said "Even he has better hair than Brendan Frasier" That is the current clue.

Lainey posted about Brendan Fraser again today:
"And I don’t remember…was Brendan Fraser EVER attractive? Dude has never quivered my loins. And he certainly isn’t quivering ANY loins anymore. But even if he did in the past, doesn’t this severe a fall from grace negate any past hotness, real or imagined?

Brendan was in New York yesterday, making the talk show rounds in support of the Mummy movie, almost alarmingly wired up for every interview. Like he was about to come out the tv and shout at you in your living room. Freak."

Lainey today Jan 15 2009-

"Why him?
It’s not like he’s the new Jack Nicholson. And he’s ass too look at so…

Why Brendan Fraser?

Don’t get it.

It was announced yesterday that Fraser has been cast alongside Harrison Ford in a new medical movie based on Pulitzer prize winning book The Cure. Was no one else available? Studio executives are so out of touch. Or maybe that’s me. Maybe you all think Brendan Fraser is the hot sh-ts?

Here’s Brendan at a book signing for Inkheart at Borders yesterday in New York. Inkheart was supposed to have been released last year but was pushed back, hits theatres on January 23rd. Looks exactly like The Mummy. Like that’s really his hair. Please."
