Lainey - Skeeve in real life too

New Lainey riddle:

Skeeve in real life too

Theirs is known as one of the most solid show business marriages. Both of them are talented. Both of them work steadily. Both are well-respected. Both can be rather high-brow though they’ve tried at blockbusters and secretly aspire to big movie status without the big movie star lifestyle though, seeing as they do try to live under the radar. Which works for him because he steps out on her all the time. Sometimes it’s with civilians. One time it was with a young actress with mesmerising eyes and the hair of an angel. It was dirty and undercover, just like their subject matter.
So when you see him in movies, and he always plays the skeevy older creep? It’s not exactly a stretch.

Top suspects:

Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber?

CleV said...

It's either Gyllenhal/Saarsgard, or Bettany/Connelly

Jen said...

Jennifer Garner and Ben Afleck, both tried the superhero route and it didn't work... the young actress might be Blake Lively, she has great hair, but the hair of an angel thing is throwing me off, is that a reference to a Victoria secret model?

Trish Lanoue said...

I really DON'T want this to be Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgweick but for some reason they seem to jump out for me on this one. They have a very solid marriage, live under the radar quite a bit and aren't blockbuster movie stars. He does often play creepy guys too. (I also thought of Javier and Penelope but they are HUGE movie stars so I'm thinking it's not them)

Nobody said...

William Macy and Felicity Huffman?

Elle said...

I agree with Gyllenhaal/Skarsgaard. Skarsgaard was called out on the site as really good at playing creeps/pervs (Lovelace review). Possible stretch, but I think angel hair = Farrah Fawcett haircut, which points to Skarsgaard's former costars Mena Suvari or Dakota Fanning. I'm inclined to say Dakota Fanning for the young actress, because their movie together (Night Moves) fits the hint better and the post where she has Charlie's Angels hair focuses in on her eye makeup (Runaway Eyes). If it is Dakota Fanning, she would have been 19 or so ...ick.

I think the key is finding out which film the Actor and the younger actress with "hair like an angel" were in- what movies have come out not too long ago with an older man playing a creep, a younger actress with aforementioned angel hair, and the older Actor is happily married to an Actress closer to his age?

Elle said...

Err.... Sarsgaard, not Skarsgaard. Sorry.

KGB_Girl said...

I vote for Skarsgaard/Gyllenhaal. That was the first couple that I thought of right away. I think the Angel hair woman might be Amanda Seyfreid. Big blue eyes and blonde "angel" hair. And they were in "Lovelace" together. Goes with her comment that the subject matter was "was dirty and undercover".

TwentiesGirl said...

I agree with KGB_Girl. The first person I thought of for the girl with hair like an angel and mesmerising eyes was Amanda Seyfried. So definitely has to be Sarsgaard and Gyllenhal. Especially because of the subject matter for the movie they were filming - has to be Lovelace.

Elle said...

Could definitely be Seyfried - I guess a reference to oatmeal would be too obvious? :P

Athena Greendale said...

Ben Afleck! The young actress has got to be Emily Ratajkowski. In Gone girl their characters were having an affair, dirty and undercover. AND she was a Victoria secret model, hair of an angel.

Athena Greendale said...

Emily Ratajkowski (Gone Girl) was a Victoria Secret model.. Your comment helped me crack the code. :)

I think Sarsgaard/Gyllenhaal is a better guess than Affleck/Garner because of the "they try to live under the radar" / "big movie life without the lifestyle" clues. Affleck and Garner are definitely not under the radar but Gyllenhaal/Sarsgaard are. And Sarsgaard does play a great skeeve!

Bibsea said...

I vote for Sarsgaard/Gyllenhaal too. You can add to his list of skeeve characters his role in an Education with Carey Mulligan, Lainey absolutely loved that movie.

Lynne C. said...

William H Macy
Felicity Huffman
Juno Temple (starred with Macy in Dirty Girl - blonde with striking eyes)

duffgrl said...

I agree with the Sarsgaard/Gyllenhaal guess. He is a skeeve in almost every movie!

jw12 said...

I like Javier Bardem(sp) and Cameron Diaz as the Angel.

Rita said...

Either Sarsgaard or Bardem will do. For both have held skeevy old-man type roles. Affleck, not as much... And really, does every Lainey blind have to be about Garner/Affleck?

However, I'm still looking at the Jennifer Connelly/Paul Bettany guess; It's a very interesting guess, for Lainey had alluded not long ago at how pervy Bettany has been looking lately (I remember the picture, he was wearing a sort of College professor attire and looked... icky), and both he and his wife have tried for a bigger Hollywood career, but try so hard to look unimpressed with the it all.

MD1979 said...

Torn between two guesses, both could fit:

Maggie Gyllenhaal / Peter Sarsgaard - with him cheating with either (or both of?) Dakota Fanning and Amanda Seyfried. Both Dakota or Amanda would fit looks-wise and the movies they were in fit too. Both Maggie and Peter have tried their hand at blockbusters - for her, there was Batman and White House Down, and he was in Green Lantern.

Naomi Watts / Liev Schreiber - he was in X-Men: Wolverine, Salt and The Butler and she's in the Divergent series and was in King Kong and the Ring. He has played some skeevy older man characters (The Perfect Man, Fading Gigolo), but I'm not sure who is co-star would be that he cheated with.

Leaning towards Maggie and Peter.

crila16 said...

Amanda Seyfried and Kevin Bacon. She has the hair of an angel and the eyes going for her. He's is in, what's considered the best hollywood marriage. He also has played a lot of creepy roles. I also do like the Jennifer Connelly/Paul Bettany guess. I like that one too...though Jennifer doesn't really come across as high-browed. I actually worked once w/ Kyra S and she's an absolute Biatch. Not nice at all and thought she was above everyone.

Kelly Reichardt (director of Night Moves, which starred Peter Sarsgaard and Dakota Fanning, along with Jesse Eisenberg) just got a shout-out in the post about Woody Allen being a super creep. Possible suggestion that Eisenberg often works with "famed creepy people." Gyllenhaal/Sarsgaard w/ Dakota Fanning is how I'm leaning.

L Rey said...

If this were a democratic thing, I’d be voting Gyllenhaal/Sarsgaard.

jm_hoosier said...

This is definitely Gyllenhaal/Sarsgaard and Dakota Fanning. "Mesmerizing eyes and angel hair" refers to her eyes in Twilight and her hair in that movie with Kristen Stewart. The "subject matter" of Night Moves is done undercover at night, which goes with the riddle perfectly.

Ash said...

I just remembered this post from back in May. Maybe this is what she was hinting at?

"Jake Gyllenhaal had the most exes at the MET Gala last night. His date: big sister Maggie Gyllenhaal. Sometimes I get the sense that she protects him more than he could possibly protect her. Pay attention to that."

Sshh said...

The problem is, though, that Amanda Seifreyd or however you spell her name is not that young compared to Peter Skarsgard and Maggie. Amanda is, what, 8 years younger than Maggie? That would not be that skeevy .. just your regular cheating skeevy.

Ash said...

Well it could also be Sarsgaard/Gyllenhaal and Dakota Fanning from when they filmed Night Moves, if you read some of the other comments above. Sarsgaard & Dakota Fanning would be pretty skeevy, so maybe that's it.

Nobody said...

Saarsgard and Amanda Seyfried, not Fanning. Saarsgard and Seyfried were just in Lovelace where he plays a skeeve. Just last year. timing is excellent.

crila16 said...

Lainey just cleared Kevin Bacon today. Sooooo...not him.

I could get down with the Peter Saarsgard guess. It would make sense. My only hesitation is, I had heard he bats for the other team.

meeshkag said...

saarsgard and amanday seyfried. her hair in lovelace resembled jackly smith's in charlie's angels

Bi-Bi Guy said...

My problem with the Saarsgard idea, is I still don't think he's that into women.. Or at least not JUST into them... Maybe if they said he was having an affair with his brother in law....

Unknown said...

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz ?

New blind up http://www.laineygossip.com/Actor-vs-Director-blind-riddle/37967

My guess:

The Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu

The Actor: Tom Hardy (or Leonardo DiCaprio). I couldn't find anything about a physical ailment for either of them, so my money's on Hardy. He sure looks capable of throwing one punch that would knock someone out.

The Movie: The Renevant

I don't know anything about Innaritu's personal life or personality and normally I'd think David Fincher for something like this because he's a known .... you know to be difficult, but all of the hints about "hardware" and "big ego recently made bigger" indicate that this director just won some big accolades...I'm guessing an Oscar, and Innaritu just took home the gold for best director and best picture for Birdman.

He's currently filming The Renevant in Canada starring Leonadro DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, and the reports are that it's an excruciating, painstakingly slow shoot.


Lainey also had a previous blind about Tom Hardy on the set of The Renevant ("On Location Influences"), so I think she has an informant on the set there.

Kristin Wigs said...

Think you nailed it.

'until he took it a step too far with someone who has some experience with knocking around douchebags on set.'

Hardy punched out Shia Labeof for being a turd brisket on the set of Lawless.

Ash said...

That's hilarious re: Shia! I didn't know that.

I just noticed that it says the director was in a tent, which seems telling.

"The director? Is found by the crew moments later. On the ground in his tent. One punch."

So not a trailer, but a tent. The Renevant is filming in the woods of Canada, so it would make sense that they'd all be in tents instead of trailers. Go Tom Hardy! I feel bad approving of punching someone but it sounds like it was constructive criticism in this case.

duffgrl said...

Can we keep comments limited to the blind posted? Thanks.

blurry vice said...

I think those were just right before you put up the new one... Happens a lot when the new one doesn't go up right away. :)

slgibbs1 said...

I think it's William H Macy and Felicity Huffman

Dana said...

Today she said the girl with the angel hair targeted another married sleeve and that's why she's not with her boyfriend anymore. http://www.laineygossip.com/October-14--2015-Smutty-Shout-Outs/40908

Jamie said...

It's definitely Amanda Seyfried. She and Justin Long broke up last month.
