Lainey - His and Her Anorexia

New riddle from Lainey Gossip today, Feb 26 2009 -

His and Her Anorexia

A surprise power player in Hollywood, his wife has always been little. But nowadays it’s his extreme thinness that is raising eyebrows. What used to be extreme controlling behaviour on set has now spilled over into his personal life, and he’s applied the same obsessive devotion to his physique, so much so that it’s become alarming.

Not that it’s uncommon in Hollywood for married couples to share aesthetic philosophies but these two have taken it to the extreme. Counting almonds together – no more than 15 a day. And an apple and some berries max. Two to three hours at the gym. Constant colonics. Every month a three day cleanse consisting of some watered down pre-mix and nothing else. Dairy is out the question, bread hasn’t been seen in a year, diuretics of course, and if the household staff make the mistake of bringing in forbidden foods without their permission – like on their own lunch hours, how unforgiveable – well look the f-ck out. You have never felt the fury of a hungry person tempted by a minion.

Thing is, she wants another baby. And has been told it’s best to relax on the stringent diet. So while she’s trying to tiptoe over to a more normal nutritional meal plan, he’s not only been reluctant, he’s also been much more distant, spending longer hours away from home, and seeming to avoid her calls when he’s at work. Like he’s afraid her healthy weight is contagious. Or something.

His behavior is also apparently getting more and bizarre. Lately he’s taken to getting onto the floor in the backseat of his chauffeured car and lying down the entire ride, crouched down, totally paranoid, even with the blacked out windows, even though he’s hardly a major pap target. He’s also borderline freakish about changing his contact information every few weeks so no one can find him.

As his schedule gets more and more overwhelming, wearing several hats at a time, those around him are wondering if he’s starting to lose it …


* Update March 6 - Lainey has eliminated Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony, Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher, Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick, Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes, Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz, Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin, Keira Knightley & Rupert Friend, Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart, Judd Apatow & Leslie Mann (but warmish).

**March 17: Solved: Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor

Sorry we missed this yesterday. So what is everyone thinking for this? I was thinking Gwyneth and Chris Martin. Who else? I'd love to know who this is.

blurry vice said...

oh this wasn't yesterday, it is from today! Oh good I am not late with this!

sistah2 said...

For some reason the first thought was Ashton and Demi. It may not fit them completely, but the first line: 'he is a surprise power player' made me think of him, he's very powerful in Hwood, surprisingly since when first came on the scene, he was a young goofball. Now he's producing and acting & has several projects & very connected.

Anna said...

"...even though he's hardly a major pap target" to me points to Ashton. TMZ showed a clip of him as he arrived at an airport over a week ago. He was filming the pap himself using his mobile phone. He was caught saying something like "now watch as the papparazzi go wild" then the TMZ camera pans around and shows about 4 pap, and they were not even running to him. It was a real joke. And I do think he is turning bizarre. What a disappointment! I used to like him when he first started.

Grace said...

I'm thinking' Ben Stiller and his wife. He wears several hats and is a Hollywood power player.

Grace said...

Reader's Digest described Ben Stiller thus:

In terms of sheer masculine beauty, Ben Stiller is an unlikely member of Hollywood’s leading man elite. Although feature for feature he can compete with the best of them, his lopsided expressions and goofy mannerisms set him apart from his more classically dashing peers.

JR10 said...

How about Pete Wentz? He's a surprise hollywood power player who wears several hats - he is the brain behind Fall Out Boy; he has his own fashion label; the friends or enemies web site; he has major ties ins with MTV; and possibly other outlets. He is clearly into fitness. Ashlee may have been up for the strict diet in order to shed the baby weight, and although they only recently had their first child, who's to say she doesn't already want another? And finally, he's much less of a pap draw than he was when he and ashlee first got together.

Kate said...

What about RDJ? He's a surprise (return) to hollywood and he's looking SCARY thin lately!

blurry vice said...

These are all great guesses. I'm looking forward to hints and eliminations from Lainey!

hotheaded said...

seriously, i think it's katie holmes and tom cruise. he is that controlling type and he is, by many counts, often on the verge of losing it.

she wants to have another baby...katie has said this several times.

yes, i put my money on them.

Scarlett said...

Cruise is not a 'surprise' power player. And Katie will be implanted with another robot spawn, no nutrition required. And they are both major pap targets....sorry, but the clue's don't fit.

Agree on Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor. Because he's a comedic actor, a lot of people in don't take him seriously. But look at what Tropic Thunder did this year. And he's bulked up considerably while she's shrunken to Lohan proporitions. He's also enough of an ass to punish the minions.

crila16 said...

It can't be Tom Cruise...only because he's a pap target, and the person in question isn't a target. Tom is also not scary thin. He actually looks really good lately.

RDJ sounds like he'd be a very good guess too...but he's also kinda a pap target, because he's been in so many hits lately.

Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor sound like the best guess to me. Ben is a definite power player...but he and CT are not a pap target at all.

Anonymous said...

i don't think it can be Ben Stiller - he's bulked up, rather than shrunk. And i'm pretty sure Christine said she was done with babies - they have two (sorry, can't remember where i heard that, maybe an interview with her??)

Anonymous said...

And hey - did Lainey drop a hint about Leo this morning? About performance? Was she hinting for a blind item? Can anyone remember one about performance?

anony-2 said...

She eliminated JLo and Skeletor.

Tori said...

Sounds like Gwyneth and Chris to me.

crila16 said...

I heard somewhere that Gwyn was done with babies too. Also, Chris has always been thin and looks the exact same to me.

Amy said...

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden?

Amy said...

Nevermind. Please disregard. Richie and Madden don't fit the descriptions.

pbprincess said...

Lainey may have hinted when she talked about RDJ and his lunch box, but I think Ben Stiller and Ashton are both great guesses. Christine Taylor has always looked too thin to me. Demi, not so much and she's a bit beyond childbearing, isn't she?

Anna said...

There are other websites that say this is Ben and Christine with pictures of a very thin Christine. Also Ben was very controlling during the Oscar rehearsals and was unhappy about his script, thus the Joaquin Phoenix bit. So I am changing my original guess from Ashton to Ben.

Anon1 said...

Re Leo hint, could he be "It's easy but it's not hard"?

pomme said...

i don't understand if the wife is famous or not! she's not famous,i think Christian Bale and his wife!
If she's famous,Ben stiller and very thin Christine Taylor!

pomme said...

i don't believe more Christian Bale and his wife gess because he never is in the blind items,he's too secret!None really knows him!

Andrea said...

SO EASY!!!
David Arquette & Courtney Cox!
Right????!!!!

Anna said...

David Arquette isn't a surprise power player.

Anna said...

David Arquette isn't a surprise power player.

duffgrl said...

I like the Gwnneth and Chris guess. I've heard they DO want more kids.

kanonymous said...

I don't think it's Demi and Ashton. Neither one of them looks anorexic and neither one of them ever HAS looked anorexic.

Don't think this is Ashlee Simspon either. Come on. This is someone who was very thin and is now trying to gain weight. Simpson just had a baby and is still losing the baby weight.

kanonymous said...

I don't think this is Chris and Gwyneth either because both of them have always seemed about the same weight, with small fluctuations. Neither one has ever looked anorexic, although they are both thin. She has also said that if they had a third child it would be through adoption because pregnancy is tough on her.

kanonymous said...

I like the Ben Stiller guess. I heard years and years ago from someone who worked with Christine Taylor that she was anorexic. Maybe they both are now. If he's working out and developing muscle, it could be he might not look anorexic even if he is. I've known very muscular guys who had eating disorders.

Anonymous said...

the Leo hint could be "it's easy but not hard" - i went back and reread it, it fits.... sorry to publish on this thread about it, but since it was posted as it's own, i wasn't sure where else to write it!

PrettyTarheelFan said...

Leo is for the one about the guy getting laid all the time but can't get it up. I've been looking for it too, and can't find it on here. I thought it was either Ted or Lainey, but I looked on both sets of archives on Friday with no luck. Anyone else remember that one?

crila16 said...

"it's easy but not hard" link:
http://laineygossip.com/Its_easy_but_its_not_hard_blind_item.aspx?CatID=1057&CelID=0

Regarding His and Her Anorexia. I'm sticking with Ben and Christine. Gwyn is way to into her own Health, even before Chris came along...and according to all the gossip sites...Gwyn and Chris are in a bad relationship and are on their way out. I highly doubt they're dieting together. He was also touring for a while, so hasn't been around. It's also rumoured that he started cheating on her, shortly after they got married.

patrizia said...

Geee, I allways though "it's easy but not hard" to be Daniel Craig, the Bond guy.
Because Lainey has repeatedly called his love for his girlfriend, Sudoko whatever her name is, as not to be "limpdick".
What do you think?

shiloh said...

ben stiller and christine taylor. check out imdb, in his pics he looks veeery skinny.

PrettyTarheelFan said...

Thanks Crila!!!!

anony-2 said...

Ellen and Portia are not not eating. Good one! Also not the Arquettes or Kevin and Kyra.

crila16 said...

OMG...you're right shiloh. Ben is so skinny in those oscar photos. His face looks so thin and his chin looks pointy. I didn't realize it before, because he was wearing that beard during the oscars.

crila16 said...

No problem PrettyTarheelfan.

sistah2 said...

I agree its BS/CT.
Yeah good catch on that Leo BI. I remember at the time many guesses for him. this cfms it.
lainey waits a while to do reveals. at least she does them!

Amazon said...

this is a bit left field, but the surprise power play bit made me think of Judd Apatow (Superbad, Knocked Up). He's married to an actress (she played the sister in Knocked) and they have kids already. Also, he's a producer, director, writer, so the many projects thing fits, too. Also, he's not a target for the paps. Does any know of any recent pix of him?

anony-2 said...

Lainey posted this today in an item on Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson -- a broad hint?

Rachel Bilson and her betrothed Hayden Christensen spotted in Malibu yesterday after lunch. His legs look skinnier than hers. And she’s TINY. Ew.

anony-2 said...

Never mind, they're neither married nor parents wanting "another" baby, so I guess it can't be them. :(

B626 said...

Whoever Guessed Judd Apatow, I Agree With.
His Wife Has Always Been Skinny

crila16 said...

Gwyn and Chris were eliminated by Lainey today.

Steph said...

Do you think it may be Hayden Chistianson and Rachel Bilson? She mentioned today how his legs are skinnier than hers and that she is tiny?

Steph said...

Nevermind, I forgot it said another baby... as far as I know they have none!

shelley502 said...

Judd Apatow and and his wife were eliminated today.

I think It's Ben and Christine.

blurry vice said...

Ben and Christine are what I am thinking too now... that hint tells us that least one of them is a comedian of some sort or does funny movies. What about Paul Rudd? He is in a lot of Apatow films.

crila16 said...

Seth Rogen would be a good guess, because he's lost so much weight...but I don't think he's married.

What about Steve Carrell...although, he's already so skinny. He has become a big powerplayer though.

crila16 said...

Ohhh...found this on Wikipedia.

"In 1990, Apatow met Ben Stiller outside of an Elvis Costello show, and they became friends.[2] In 1992, Apatow produced The Ben Stiller Show for Fox."

Emily said...

It is Ben Stiller and Christine. Ben Stiller often puts her in his movies, just as Judd Apatow does with his wife. And he is super-skinny these days. It has to be them.

shiloh said...

check out photos from the oscars of ben and christine. he looks scary skinny. it HAS to be them.

Steph said...

Agree- it must be Ben and Christine, esp. w/the new info today!

sistah2 said...

Slam dunk its BS/CT. Lainey gave it away today.
Wow - he's gone nuts.

crila16 said...

Where on Lainey's site did she give it away? I can't find it.

.Blind Item Reader said...

Today Lainey revealed that it's Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox.

.Blind Item Reader said...

Or one would think. Upon re-reading, it seems not to fit.

blurry vice said...

sistah2, do you mean the comedian hint tells us that it's ben and christine? can't find anything else that would be that big of a hint on them.

I was actually thinking Lilo and SamRo today. Lainey keeps going on about how skinny they are.

sistah2 said...

It cant be Sam/Lilo. Lainey says HIM/he several times.
It fits Ben Stiller, esp since the Judd Apatow hint- she said "warm" to that guess. Ben Stiller works with him often.

chrissi said...

Did anyone think of Brad and Angie?

Allison said...

Lainey used the term "Skinny Ben Stiller" in her post about Douchebag Mayer today. Great work, guys!

sistah2 said...

YES its solved...per Lainey today, w/the skinny Ben Stiller reference.

blurry vice said...

On a side note, yes Leo was the subject of that "its not easy but its hard" riddle... but sistah2 insisted we didn't post it on this site because it was gross. That is why it's not here, sistah2, remember?

sistah2 said...

blurry, I was not questioning WHY IT WAS NOT HERE. I dont have a memory problem. this is what I wrote:
"
Yeah good catch on that Leo BI. I remember at the time many guesses for him. this cfms it.
lainey waits a while to do reveals. at least she does them!"

Dont know why/what I have to do with it. NO one cares.
