Lainey - He turned out to be the cliche

OK, in answer to yesterday's post on Lainey, who left us wondering who she meant, today we have more.  Here is her new riddle today, to follow up to the "one who can no longer be trusted" comment from yesterday -

He turned out to be the cliche

He was the one we trusted who can’t actually be trusted. He used to be my answer to the question - is there anyone in Hollywood who DOESN’T cheat? Yes, I’d say, and excitedly too! Art does not imitate life! He’s faithful!
Well, no. He isn’t.
He hits on the young funny pretty ones at parties. Very typical behaviour - he loosens up with a few drinks and he turns into a pig; two of his more famous targets, both under 30, turned him down. He did however spend a few nights with a frequent co-star, over 30. They’ve worked together on major and minor projects. As for his long suffering partner? The woman we thought was the love of his life? Well, sometimes when he gets drunk and smears himself all over other ladies, she’s actually right there. She turns away. She pretends she doesn’t see. Which... kind of explains why she looks the way she does.
That said, it is a partnership. It’s not like she’s getting nothing out of it. He has used his influence to help her, certainly. Perhaps she’s decided it’s worth it.
An actor cheating on his partner is nothing new and doesn’t make for the most intriguing blind, sure. But like I said earlier, he was the one who was supposed to not be like the others. He’s the one who’s enjoyed almost unanimous popularity. And he turned out to be the cliché. I was surprised about this one. And very, very disappointed.

Update 7/13: Lainey has eliminated Tom Hanks, Hugh Jackman, Antonio Banderas.

Top suspect: Jon Hamm
Frequent co-star: Kristen Wiig

duffgrl thinks this is Jon Hamm. I was thinking Ben Stiller. Have heard some shady things.

OK I am finally caught up on the other posts' comments. Jon Hamm it is!

Thank you reader @ Priscila Colen for this post:

"There's no doubt in my mind this is Jon Hamm. If you need any proof go here: http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Celebrity/20397/Details/23890/Jon-Hamm-and-Jennifer-Westfeldt-are-making-it-longer-than-others

Plus, see the hint she gave on the Smutty Tingles yesterday: "Why don’t I love Kristen Wiig as intensely the way I do Amy Poehler and Tina Fey? Will think on this and let you know soon (Cele|bitchy)". Source: http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/24042/Smutty-Tingles-for-July-10--2012

She did warn us that it was going to break our hearts."

- Lots of good links and info... Thx Priscila

Zara said...

I do think Lainey is implying it's Jon Hamm. She always talks about him in that way, praises him for his fidelity etc.

Still, I don't believe it's him. Even if the blind is meant to be about Jon Hamm, going by everything else that's ever been written about him, it's false.

Who else? Matt Damon? But his wife hasn't had anything done...

blurry vice said...

Rita - thanks, saw that article when Priscila posted it! Does really hint to Jon Hamm.

Zara, true that Matt Damon is another "good guy". But considering what Lainey wrote in June about Jon Hamm, and recently about Kristen Wiig... it pretty much looks like them.

hordac said...

I think Lainey is pretty obvious in her blinds, though I guess that could change if she is getting in dog doo doo with the publicists for these. All signs really do point to Hamm/Westfeldt/Wiig. Ok, so shame on Jon but Wiig as a homewrecker is a shocker too! Funny, I had always noted their chemistry on SNL when he guested but I just thought it was good acting ha ha...Poor Jennifer and my poor broken admiration for Mr. Hamm...

adoroma said...

When Lainey said, "kind of explains why she looks the way she does," was another clue. Lainey always writes about Jennifer's face and how she doesn't need to change it because Jon loves her.

Jon Hamm:

"Art does not imitate life" : nod to Don Draper on Mad Men

"he loosens up with a few drinks and he turns into a pig" : Lainey has mentioned at least once Jon Hamm looking gross while drinking and she has mentioned more than once that he likes to drink a lot.

"long suffering partner" : not wife

"The woman we thought was the love of his life?" : Jon Hamm referred to Jennifer as the love of his life: http://www.people.com/people/package/article/0,,20304925_20406167,00.html

"Which... kind of explains why she looks the way she does." : Lainey and Sasha(?) have mentioned a few times that Jennifer always looks desperate around him and like she can't trust him...clinging to him, etc. Lainey has called her "a drag" on numerous occasions.

"He’s the one who’s enjoyed almost unanimous popularity" : No one has anything bad to say about Jon Hamm.

And, finally, this doesn't surprise me at all. Love Mad Men but there is something about Jon Hamm. Opportunistic, player ... and quite honestly, they have been together a LOOONG time. People get bored with each other. I personally don't think they will stay together for long. You know when one part of the couple quotes "love of my life", the demise is pretty near.

Hexicon said...

"Why she looks the way she does"--just to follow up on the Botox comments in the earlier thread, did anyone else see Jennifer Westfeldt's movie "Friends with Kids"? She was Botoxed to the point where she could only move her eyelids. Her "acting" consisted of batting her eyelash extensions--worst example of frozen face I've ever seen. Overdoing it due to pressure at home?

If this is really JH, it's too bad, because he seemed like one of the last nice celebrities out there.

Caz1310 said...

Oh no not the Hamm!

lightMETALS said...

I agree with the above comments. I think it's pretty clear that this is Jon Hamm and Kristen Wiig, particularly in light of Lainey's recent article about him and Jennifer being different from the Hollywood norm. He did seem like a nice/faithful guy, but I remember watching the Bridesmaids DVD bloopers and noting how Jon and Kristen were around each other... in some ways quite "over familiar" during the sex scene, or beyond how you'd talk to just a friend.

Fijigrrl said...

Oh good job everyone. I was stuck on this. Excellent P.I. work :)

Michelle said...

"Stop yelling at me. I gave warning that this would crush you. But why would it crush me if it was Antonio Banderas? It’s not. Or Hugh Jackman which... have I not been clear enough about Hugh Jackman?" - HAHAHAHA from Lainey's intro

blurry vice said...

"Stop yelling at me. I gave warning that this would crush you. But why would it crush me if it was Antonio Banderas? It’s not. Or Hugh Jackman which... have I not been clear enough about Hugh Jackman?"

blurry vice said...

Right under the "Bourne trilogy" comment. Who said Matt Damon? That will probably make a few people now throw his name out again.

I didn't see Friends with kids but will check out the botox. That bothers me so much!

MD1979 said...

Slam dunk it's Jon Hamm on this one. I'm surprised Kristen Wiig isn't getting more flac for this. She's as much to blame as him. Too bad, I really liked them both - gotta say this really takes the shine off.

Guesses for the more famous under 30 stars he has hit on? I'm thinking Megan Fox from Friends with Kids and Blake Lively from The Town? Or one of the young starlets from Sucker Punch?

PS - Lainey notted James McAvoy today in her Smutty Shout-Outs sections. Not that he was ever a top suspect. :)

Rita said...

@Blurry, with Lainey's intro, this confirms a bit more our guess that Hugh Jackman is the "Beloved Gay Actor".

As to those who are going to hint at Matt Damon for this bind, Matt Damon is married. He doesn't have a partner. He has a wife.

Michelle said...

And has Matt EVER played a cheater?

Hez said...

I'd guess Katrina Bowden from 30 Rock might be a likely target for Hamm's attentions. A younger version of his partner, some might say.

Rita said...

@Hez, don't forget Megan Fox, and the many younger women on his Mad Men show.

malcam66 said...

i was waiting for this to happen actually. On Kristen's SNL farewell, you could see the way he was looking at her - that he more than just likes her. I think if she dumps FM, he would dump jennifer for her.

notahomemaker said...

I hope that Jennifer can have a baby since now I'm starting to be concerned that it was a compromise she made for him--doesn't the movie kind of suggest that? Also, her interviews around that time didn't sound like she was closed to the idea (but it sounded like he was).

Anyway, I agree that today's intro made it very obvious. And, I know Lainey probably gets a zillion emails, but doesn't she "not" people when she receives an email with wrong answers? I sent one saying that it was Jon Hamm. As I'm sure many of you did! She certainly didn't "not" him!

Michelle said...

She notted RDJ today, not like he was a top guess though

medusa said...

Having really enjoyed her in "Kissing Jessica Stein" I was surprised how bad Jennifer Westfeldt looked in "Friends with Kids." I found it hard to enjoy the movie because of the terrible things she's done to her face. (Is it just Botox? Whatever, it's not attractive.) So, so sad.

.debbie. said...

I think Lainey pretty much confirmed it today in an article about Jon Hamm's bar moves -

"No... they’re not all perfect. This is a reality that Twilight fans are trying to accept today.

And for those of you devoted to Jon Hamm...well...

It’s been a couple of weeks for you."

Aubrey Plaza (from Parks and Rec) for one of the under 30's? In the Lifestyle section on July 18th she writes:

I can’t decide if the black trim on this dress flatters Aubrey Plaza or not. Specifically the shoulders. Also, she’s so young funny pretty. I don’t know that this is a young funny pretty girl look.

Well, it just went mainstream..radaronline is covering it now: http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2012/07/jon-hamm-bars-flirting-woman-girlfriend-jennifer-westfeldt

Lainey has a new blind - tho not nearly enough clues in it to figure out yet

I always thought Hamm might be bi. He looks kind of iffy.

dragon said...

@Southerner. He probably is. You never know in Hollyweird.

Whitney said...

Lainey pretty much revealed this as Jon and Kristen in her GG live blog last night. Well done all.
