Lainey - Careful while you're using

New riddle from Lainey today -

Careful while you're using


Young pretty star lives the fast life, parties hard on the circuit. A lot of access, a lot of money, not much responsibility, not unlike so many privileged twentysomethings, only his problem is that the rage comes out when he uses. On several occasions, he’s been so violent, they’ve had to hold him back from causing serious damage to his friends. On one occasion, he beat the sh-t out of one of his boys. The aftermath is always tearful, he’s always ashamed by his behaviour which, sadly, stems from the shame he feels about the fact that he’d prefer dating men, but is afraid to admit it. He resorts to sneaking around, is paranoid that he’ll be found out, and is frustrated that he has to go to such lengths to hide his hookups. It doesn’t help that professionally he’s been cautioned against being honest about being gay.

Kellan Lutz? Not seeing many clues.

Jen said...

I think that the person we've been hearing a lot about lately inregards to his temper is Shia Laboeuf...

He's my guess.

I agree with SHIA LA BOEUF! My first thoughts went straight to him.

I know a girl who is banging Kellen on the reg. I would have a tough time believing he is gay...

blurry vice said...

I was thinking Shia too. I thought he was older than 20 something though (30?) I honestly do not know though. He fits if he is 20 something.

Natalie said...

It's Shia for sure. He was born in '86: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0479471/

Caz1310 said...

Yes I agree with the Shia guesses. And to think those Transformers PR people tried to bluff us that he and Megan Fox were an item....

pomme said...

i like Shia 's guess because i have no idea

duffgrl said...

First person I thought was Shia also, but, please, I wouldn't describe him as "pretty"!!!!! So I think it is someone else...someone more pretty (like Zac Efron, although I don't think he is on the party circuit, not sure)

Juda1 said...

Sounds like Shia. Efron, Lautner etc.. don't seem very violent.


"I know a girl who is banging Kellen on the reg. I would have a tough time believing he is gay..."

You don't have to be "gay" to hook up with other guys! All the major studies suggest 1 in 4 heterosexual guys are closeted Gay/Bi/Bi-Curious. People should just live their life & not worry about labels, of course when you're a celebrity that's rarely possible.

Kelly said...

I'm with duffgrl on this. I don't find Shia pretty and, honestly, he doesn't look tough enough to beat anyone up. Then again, he does seem to get into a lot of bar room brawles. Wasn't the last fight caused by someone calling him gay? Hmm...

Kelly said...

Oh!! I just had another thought: I've always thought that the explanation regarding Shia's hand injury was a little hinky. I mean, they said it was injured when his truck flipped. Isn't it odd, though, that only his hand was injured and not, say, his arm too? I would, on the hand, believe that he injured his hand by taking a fight too far prior to the accident.

Is that a little too conspiracy theory?! Haha!

Viking Girl said...

I don't know who this is, but it's sad nevertheless. All those soul-less wankers behind the scenes make me puke. They are exploiting a young lad who has yet to develope the strength of character to follow his own path. Mind you, there are plenty of folk in Hollywood twice this kids age who are the same.
What really infuriates me is their reasoning: 'the public' won't buy them in certain roles if they know said actor is gay. Well *I'm* 'the public' and I'm sick of them peddling their self- loathing prejudices in my name.

Juda1 said...

"he doesn't look tough enough to beat anyone up."

It does say "when he uses", no doubt coke which makes you feel invincible.

"Wasn't the last fight caused by someone calling him gay? Hmm..."

Exactly. Guys who are secure with their sexuality just laugh at such a thing. If they overreact then usually there's some truth to it & the aggressor has hit a nerve.

Rachel said...

This screams Shia to me too. I personally don't find him "pretty," but I bet a lot of people do.
As others have said, his most recent fight was supposedly caused by someone calling him gay. Plus, since he's in the Transformer movies I can see industry people telling him not to come out because the public wouldn't buy a gay guy in an action movie.

julie said...

Someone asked Ted the following a couple of days ago re Shia's brawling:

Dear Ted:
Just saw that Shia LaBeouf got himself into a bit of a drunken bar brawl that was instigated by (in part) being called a "f----t." Question: Does this kind of a reaction to having your sexual orientation challenged reveal anything about whether or not a celebrity is in the closet? If you are straight, wouldn't being called this be easier to dismiss?
—Sammi

Dear Gaydar Police:
All this reveals is that Shia has a bad temper and a drinking problem! The fight really started when Shia refused to take a pic with a fan, so the gal's BF dropped the dreaded word at Shia. Add booze and testosterone to the mix, and you have your standard bar fight—only with boldface names. No matter what insult may have been said, Shia was looking to take a swing at someone. Add to that already combustible recipe, yes, it didn't help anything that anti-gay names were thrown. Shia certainly doesn't want those secrets thought about his protected love life.

Kimber said...

This was shouting Shia to me, too.

Kendra said...

I totally thought Shia too and it hurts because I'm in love with him. *sigh* I do think he's pretty. This story, although I can't vouch if it's true, may show a violent pattern? http://www.celebitchy.com/3732/shia_labeoufs_violent_past_and_heroin-addicted_father/

rynthetyn said...

Sounds like Shia to me.

Whoever it is, the Hollywood system needs to stop pressuring actors to hide, it's not healthy for the actors and it's bad for society.

Clancy said...

I loved Ted's response to the question, very funny! He was at pains to nix any ideas Shia could be gay, then in the last line throws in the words 'secrets' and 'protected', which were like big red beacons.
It was almost as though he felt he'd gone too far denying it and, like a search and rescue party that's travelled over a specific route 10 times or more, we may decide never to go that way again. Based on his response it really does sound like Shia. And I agree it's horrendous this kind of thing is still happening. I feel there's a change coming though, slowly but surely, as more and more people are coming out of the closet or just being open with their sexuality.

hordac said...

Yes, agree Shia. Lainey is more obvious with her blinds plus combined with Ted's BB answer I think we have a winner.

Moshpit Missus said...

also, didnt he date carey mulligan...who has now been seen with jake gyllenhall?...im pretty sure this is shia.

Stacey said...

I thought of Shia when reading it too. Wonder if he fits any of Ted's other closeted gay blinds.

annie said...

when i read this i immediately thought chris brown or someone in the music industry with the use of the term "boys"... perhaps rianna alluded to this prior to his beating the crap out of her...

shia doesn't seem like someone who would automatically listen to his "handlers". whereas chris brown is on his last leg and would have to. but maybe that's just me.

Mariangela said...

not sure about shia... lainey explicitly said she doesn't think he's "pretty" in this post:

http://www.laineygossip.com/Shia_LaBeouf_talks_Carey_Mulligan_in_GQ_2010.aspx

blurry vice said...

Good point, re Shia being not pretty.

No one likes my Kellan Lutz guess?

I said...

I think I read Ted once stating that Kellan Lutz is one of the few completely hetero guys in LA.

talia said...

lainey jsut notted shia:

"Oh yeah, and this is not Shia LaBeouf. Shia has some sex appeal, sure. But pretty? Come on. You can do better. "

Rachel said...

Wow, Lainey notted Shia this morning. Back to the drawing board! Kellan could be a good guess, but he doesn't really strike me as pretty either. "Young and pretty" makes me think of someone like Zac Efron, but I can't really see him being violent (but who knows...).

talia said...

since there is nothing indicating that this is an actor, i could live with this being a musician as well. i like the chris brown guess, but i wonder if lainey wouldn't have at least hinted at a gf instead of "one of the boys".
but i think that "he's been cautioned" would be even more true for a rapper/hip-hop artist...

Rita said...

Note to all Kellan Lutz supporters for this blind. If you read Lainey, YOU KNOW she thinks he is a douchebag extraordinaire.

Never said anything nice about him, only spoke of his desperation to be papped. And his sitting in a tree to read...

Would go with Efron more.
Who has a lot of money, but not much responsibility? This would definitely nott the likes of Bieber (cannot ignore the fact that he works VERY hard). Maybe someone of the Miley Cyrus status...

.debbie. said...

What about Alex Pettyfer? I think it's safe to say he can be called "pretty" and Lainey posted about his diva-like and "hostile"(her word), almost violent behaviour:

http://www.laineygossip.com/Alex_Pettyfer_talent_but_difficult_and_demanding_and_huge_ego_09feb11.aspx

Jamee said...

I don't think this is Kellan either. She thinks he's one of the biggest jokes out there, so maybe there'd be a tiny hint to how little respect she has for him in the blind. She's way more obvious about it all.

But this is so NOT Chris Brown. She would not word it this way for him. It wouldn't even be a blind. She's completely and totally open about what she thinks of Chris Brown. If this were true, she'd out him immediately, no blind necessary.

How about Robert Pattinson? The only other guy she consistently calls pretty besides R Patt is Jude Law, and it's obviously not him per age.

Sarah said...

I'm going with Pattinson too. She seems to have a love/hate thing going on with him, that I think sort of fits the tone of this blind.

It is hard for me to imagine him getting violent or even shouty with people though. I've always heard he's very sweet.

Allie said...

SHIA LA BOEUF! always thought he was gay even way back in "project green light" with Ben Afleck, he was only about 12yrs old then. they tried to portray him as an unknown talent but he is really a manufactured talent who has handlers from his very beginning. I'm sure gay is the first thing they tried to "fix" with him.

Mariangela said...

don't think it's zac efron either - lainey has noted a few times that he has no (male) friends:

http://www.laineygossip.com/Zac_Efron_has_no_friends_to_take_to_the_Laker_game.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0

Jamee said...

Sorry Allie...Shia was notted this morning. She says think more "pretty." Shia is not pretty. Good looking/sex appeal, yes, pretty, no.

sarahp said...

Today Sarah wrote an article where she mentioned Alex P (from I Am Number Four) and referred to him as "pretty." Don't know if that could be called a hint, since it wasn't written by Lainey, but it made me curious anyway....

rantersparadise said...

Have to say the Shia guesses were way-out there! He isn't pretty...in the least.

This guys has his boys. Who always hangs out in a group of guys?

He has issues with being gay. Who is quite conservative as an actor? It wouldn't be one of the more liberal guys as they would just get a beard, no biggie. Or be single but with partner ala Matt Bomer.

So thi has to be some Midwest pretty boy actor or famous whatever that hangs out with his boys.

I thought Pattinson was Devine? Also, god rad his articles he's so in love with whole free love stuff!

Efron, I'd you see those pics of him years ago kissing he's cute skater friend? Again not him.

Lastly, I though Shia was the blind item about the actor who still sleeps with his mum in the same bed and went out with an actress?

Rita said...

Debbie, you are very right about Alex P. she had written something to that control-freakeshness effect end of last week. About the violent bursts... For this, we must search the National Enquirer to see if there are any hints of brawls at the end of a «friendly» outing.

But note though, that I don't consider Alex to be rich with no responsibilities... Not exactly rolling in dough, not yet anyways, everyone is saying that he is the next big IT boy. That is when Lainey had also discussed that his ego and temper might get in the way. Already, some of his castmates did not show up to screenings because of alleged confrontations. Also, no talk of his beard? aka Diana Agron? it's pretty big considering rumours of their engagement a few weeks ago.

Would not consider Pattinson either. The poor boy does not know how to fight, as fragile as a puppet. The only time he was caught being mad at papz, he was almost crying, no vicious anger there. Also, note that he is very hard at work, and the set is on lockdown.

Sorry to shut down so many of your guesses when I don't have any of substance to offer in return. However, Ted has an update on the John douchebag Mayer update, and Lainey is talking about him looking sad, therefore we must forgive... Could it be John Mayer, or too old for this blind? He is 32 I think...

Cathy said...

While I don't think this one is Robert Pattinson, the fact that he's Nevis is a moot point here, since this isn't one of Ted's blinds.

Lily said...

Nah, it's not Pattinson. Lainey's been very consistent about he and Stewart being in disgustingly mushy and schmoopy love. Doesn't fit for a rage-filled guy hiding his hookups with men. She'd mention something in here about the girlfriend if it was him.

Mena said...

It could be Drake. He seems to travel in packs adn weren't there rumours about him being gay?

David said...

Alex Pettyfer is a good guess. He's just 20, and he was the top guess for this recent Blind Gossip item: http://blindgossip.com/?p=25939

No mention of sexuality there, but if his relationship with Dianna Agron is a fake, it'd make sense. Only doubt is how much money he has at this stage?

Clancy said...

I was thinking this could be Taylor Lautner: young 20-something, a lot of $, no responsibilities etc. From Ted blinds that are suspected to be him, he's shitty about being pulled into line regarding being with guys and is often rebelling against his minders, so that fits the 'go to such lengths to hide his hookups/cautioned' aspect. Just not sure of 'the boys' sitch.

Tara said...

Mena I like the Drake guess. I have heard the gay rumors too and Rihanna was almost overly sexual towards him, but it seemed very showy--I don't know, like she was laying it on thick so people would stop whispering. I guess Lil Wayne punched him or something last year? I would not fight Lil Wayne. He will just kill you and pay a friend to confess.

If he were ten years younger, I would be all about Jamie Foxx for this right now!

Tara said...

PS for Rihanna & Drake I was referring to the Grammys yesterday.

Tracy said...

It's not Lautner. He's only 19 and Lainey's talked many times about how he has no friends.

I said...

When I think pretty, I think Gossip Girl so my guess is one of those guys. Ed Westwick, perchance?

Rita said...

I: Ed would certainly fit... However Lainey had often stated that he was HOT. Like she gets her panties in a twist, literally, over Ed.

To me pretty, is Zack Effron or the younger Jonas brother, Nick.
Pretty is Pettyfer as well, but not rich.

But rich, very pretty and no responsibilities, right now it would be Nick Jonas or Zack Effron. NOt bad for an old timer keeping up with the new generation!

Jamee said...

Lainey never calls Ed Westwick pretty. To be exact...

"Ed Westwick arrived in Sydney today looking rough from a long flight. Even he looks like he can’t stand himself. And that chest hair. And those pants. And his wee-ness. And those boots. Disgusting. I want him."

"Ed Westwick arrived at LAX yesterday and totally stroked my quiver. He’s disgusting. And it’s hot that way."

Chace Crawford is super pretty. But is that too obvious? And he no doubt loves to party, is always seen on scene.

talia said...

if that were teds blind i would point out that it doesn't say that he is 20something... he's only compared to them...!
but i don't know if lainey is that misleading, normally not.

Rita said...

Wow Jamee, I am now on the Chace Crawford train! Great guess!

I said...

I actually initially thought Chase, (since I can't tell him and Zac Efron apart - and as someone here stated...Zac is definitely "pretty"), but then when I googled Chase Crawford and "brawls" or Chace Crawford & "fights" all that came up was Chace Crawford pulling Ed Westwick off another guy in a brawl...so I switched to him. And I googled Ed Westwick and there is a pic of him that makes him look quite the pretty gay dude...but yeah, just one pic. Other pics of him look grungy and I, personally, do NOT find him good looking at all (something about his nose). But thought perhaps Lainey would? Guess not. Or rather so disgusting that he's hot. LOL. Lainey's hilarious.

I said...

Oh, just to add...the problem with Chace is that I just can't see him getting into brawls. He seems way too chill for that. But who knows?

Sarah said...

Oooh, this pretty talk sparked a memory for me, and Lainey actually HAS lumped Westwick into that category recently. From a column on Douglas Booth. "But clearly cut from that British mold of the Westwick/Pattinson/Sturridge variety, all so delicate and lovely."
Not pretty, but I think "lovely" is close enough for me to consider Westwick in the running.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Emma_Roberts_and_Douglas_Booth_at_British_Fashion_Awards_2010_07dec0.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=21095

Brittany said...

I'm surprised no one's guessed Liam Hensworth, Miley's ex. He really is no stranger to public brawls, definitely seems like the type to have anger management issues. Plus the second to last sentence could have something to do with Miley.

sistah2 said...

What about that other guy on gossip girl? Not Westwick or Chase C...what's his name? help!

Kelly said...

Penn Badgley, perhaps?

Joshua said...

Just saw this on Twitter:

@TheCineSnark Sarah
Can't Act and Pretty Face split. Now that the movie is out their job is done? http://bit.ly/dZS3xC

So, it sounds like Pettyfer.

talia said...

sounds like pettyfer:

sistah2 said...

Thanks! thats the name - penn badgely.....anyone think its him? Or this Pettyfer guy a lock?

Rita said...

I think Pettyfer is a lock for this one. Following reports that his ex is afraid of him and hiding at a hotel...

He is young, he has money, and definitely has a temper!

Kelly said...

Agreed. Pettyfer's temper continues to make news. He has my vote.

-KADixonLaw

Tara said...

This guy came out of nowhere! Two movies in a month, and six months ago I had no clue about the dude. The "pretty" thing could also be a reference to the hideous looking Beastly that had been sitting on the shelf for the last year, waiting to ride the coattails of another movie starring Vadge or Alex.

.debbie. said...

I know I originally said Pettyfer, but after Rita's comment, the more I read the blind, the more I'm inclined to believe it's someone who's been around a bit longer, more high profile. I just don't have any new guesses to add!

Kelly said...

It is being reported that Pettyfer was asked not to attend an Oscars pre-party due to his violent temper tantrums. He was the next big thing one day and persona non grata the next. Usually it takes awhile for backlash to set in but, in Pettyfer's case, it was almost immediate. That leads me to believe that his outburts may be more extreme than has been previously reported.

I knew absolutely nothing about him when this blind came out so it was easy to accept that he may be another case of a closeted star being forced to stay in the closet to achieve a certain level of fame. Now, however, we've all heard much more about this kid and I'm not convinced that he's anything other than an out-of-control youth (possibly drug-induced) who has let his rise to stardom go to his head.

Kelly said...

BTW, I should clarify that I know that we've yet to nail down this blind. Pettyfer's name was thrown into the mix so I started paying a little more attention to events involving him. With that said...

Hope everyone in the BIE universe is having a great Thursday! : )

-KADixonLaw

Caz1310 said...

I so wanted this to be Shia and am now on the Pettyfer train. Yep he's come out of nowhere (did do Wild Child with Emma Roberts a while ago) and imagine he'd be desperate to crack into the big league. It's interesting to see the backlash against him with regards to Agron. Without getting into a debate about the merits of hiding/revealing one's sexuality at least in Hwood one has to be likeable to get anywhere (eg. Toothy, Zac, Jacob - oops Taylor). The "I am Four" team must be furious at the media coverage of his apparent shortcomings- not sure the movie is doing as well as hoped (there are plans for the next movie to be made). Don't get a gay vibe from him (he was on with Roberts at some point) but that's neither here nor there.

T-Swizzle said...

Lainey posted this today in a climun about Zac Efron...do you think its a reveal??

"Way to be cool, Pretty, way to be chill."
