Lainey - Why he's sleeping on the couch

New Lainey riddle today, March 2 - 

Why he's sleeping on the couch

Before it happened, his friends were begging him not to do it. Begging him not to make it permanent. But he was in too deep, and a little wounded too after his most recent professional setback. So it happened. Despite all the warnings, he went ahead and made it official.
But the happily ever after wore off really quickly. It wore off a long time ago. Which is why while he’s working, he’s also hiding. Of course he could stay in luxe accommodations all to himself. Instead of sleeping in a hotel suite that they most certainly have the budget for though, he’s on his buddy’s couch. His best buddy. The one you’d think would approve of his relationship. But even his best friend thinks his girl is crazy. And understands why he’s decided to hide out, where it’s not so easy for her to find him. Which, apparently, happens all the time. She’s obsessive about calling around, looking for him, haranguing anyone she can to ask where he is, what he’s doing, why he hasn’t texted her back. Two sources confirmed to me that she’s been delayed on set a few times because she’s been shouting down the phone at someone in her trailer, demanding they track him down for her. And so, at a time when they’re supposed to be celebrating, he’s far away, enjoying his freedom for a few weeks. Is this what it’s going to be for a lifetime?

Top suspects:Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.  (Best Buddy: Marilyn Manson)

Johnny Depp (though Diaz/Madden would be interesting)

Cortney said...

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively? He's in Vancouver shooting Deadpool and they did hook up around the time Green Lantern was tanking... celebrating a baby. The math seems right to me.

Kristin Wigs said...

Ooooh that's interesting! With the best friend being Sandra Bullock? It'd also fit a past blind about Blake being hot headed. Only thing is, they were just photographed together at JFK.

blurry vice said...

I like the Johnny depp guess. I was thinking Ryan Reynolds but I don't think he and Blake fit. She's not on set right now ( just had the baby).

Texan5 said...

I'd like to throw out Eddie Redmayne or Benedict Cumberbatch. Although Depp has the marriage that I always believed was doomed.

Whitney said...

This is a juicy one! I thought about Redmayne or the Batch, but I didn't think either of their wives were actresses? Possibly Batch's wife might work with trailer clue...

The Depp, Reynolds, and Madden guesses are all intriguing!

125records said...

Depp fits better than Redmayne or Cumberbatch in terms of the referenced "career setback" ("Mortdecai"). Both ER & BC were just nominated for Academy Awards, and ER won.

Christina said...

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. The professional setback would refer to his failed acting career. They're supposed to be celebrating because they're pregnant. Also, Lainey likes to post about the people in her blinds soon after she posts the blind itself, and today's was about them, and how he's still trying to make it in acting. Just don't know who his best buddy is... Jimmy Fallon?

Seer said...

Timberlake/Biel. She's always been neglected in their relationship, Lainey's hinted at it in the past. Then she posted today about Justin visiting her "on set" (she referenced how her sources confirmed she'd been late for set time) and 'how happy she looked.'

saultites said...

If Timberlake is visiting her on set, he's not hiding from her. And all of the info coming from the set said Biel has been great. So I think Depp and Heard, with the couch belonging to Tim Burton.

LY said...

I think this is Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The big clue in Lainey's post that I think most people are ignoring is the clue about the best friend. Lainey has had several posts in the past about Depp and his "best friend" Marilyn Manson. Of course Manson would seem to be supportive of Depp dating a younger woman given how he's into younger women himself. But even he thinks Amber Heard is crazy.

A little research and it appears Amber Heard is on location in Denmark, far away from Depp. It's got to be them!

I'm thinking it's Depp since he's going on box office failure #3 in a row(...if I'm remembering correctly). Guessing his best friend is Marilyn Manson, after his Rolling Stone interview portrayed them as soulmates ( in Manson's opinion).

Publia said...

Recently Lainey cited the BFF relationship between Depp and Marilyn Manson, who also dated a much-younger woman (Evan Rachel Wood). It's reasonable to think that Manson is "[t]he one you’d think would approve of his relationship" because he ditched Dita for Evan like Depp ditched Vanessa for Amber.

I would guess that Lone Ranger is the "professional setback," too.

Chacha said...

Hi,
I do feel Depp is a good guess, as Lainey uses the "his girl" expression, which he uses to describe the woman inhis life, wether wife or girlfriend...

Nobody said...

What about Kate Bosworth and new hubby Michael Polish? Just got married in 2013, Lainey's been on her before for being difficult, he's away on shoot, his best friend is his twin brother. Don't know about the career setback, could it be a movie from 2013?

lynnep said...

I thought for sure George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, with Monuments Men tanking as the setback, Rande Gerber as the friend, and "lifetime" being a clue to his Lifetime Achievement Award he got at the Globes this year. But "on the set" indicates an actress, doesn't it? Or someone who works on film sets?

Bec said...

Depp and Heard - the BFF is Marlyn Manson - there were photos of them together not too long ago, and Lainey reported on their friendship. Also, the blind clue says you'd think the best friend wouldn't mind - well, remember Manson dated Evan Rachel Wood, who was 19 and Manson 36, like Depp's 51 and Heard 28. That clue only fits Depp-Heard-Manson.

Ash said...

I like the Depp/Heard/Manson guess. There's another blind up (3/3/15).

Scarlet Johansson?

L Rey said...

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Is it crazy that I think this is so easy?

First, I don’t think of Amber Heard being so needy.

Second: “at a time when they’re supposed to be celebrating” says to me that there’s something else to be celebrating aside from being married.

Third, while JT has been seen to visit Biel on set, it’s also been said that Biel was incredibly pleased when he did. That sounds like she really *needs* him to visit and *needs* people to know he visits. And I can totally see JT dropping in every other week to even out all the times when he ducks out and stops answering texts. Obviously, if they’re having a baby, he needs to contact her once in a while, just to check in. What Lainey seems to be getting at is that he’s trying his best to make excuses to be “away from his phone” as much as possible and for as long as possible, not necessarily completely 100% absent, because that’s obviously suspicious and not right when you’re wife is pregnant.

Sticking with JT & Biel.

@saultites said...
“And all of the info coming from the set said Biel has been great.”

Says the publicist. Lainey made a reference to this report and noted how suspiciously defensive it sounded. No one talks about how great someone is on set for no reason.

When was the last time you heard about what Julianne Moore was like on-set while she was in the middle of filming? Never. No one has to talk about other people being normal when they’re being normal because there’s nothing to talk about.

When you hear a report in the rags about what a delight someone is on set, during shooting, you can be sure it’s a response to something else, possibly contrary reports about said someone.

wandergenie said...

It's Depp/Heard.

Biel and Timberlake haven't been hiding---if anything, Timberlake has been more visible lately with the bump release picture, SNL 40, and the set visit. Also, Timberlake didn't have a career tank---he didn't get a an Oscar nomination, but his acting career is hardly a flop.

Depp had a serious of tanks---Mortdecai and Lone Ranger being two (and he was completely MIA from Into the Woods press). He and Heard have seemed to be on the outs for a while, and the wedding seemed like a last ditch effort. The best friend is Manson, which Lainey has mentioned many times.

wandergenie said...

Also, blind today, I am also thinking it's ScarJo. But what is Lainey making up to us?

Kristin Wigs said...

That's what I'm wondering. Probably a hiatus?

Sarah said...

What about Benji Madden and Cameron Diaz? He's surely bff's with his brother, whose wife set Cam and Benji up, so you'd think he'd be supportive of the couple. And Cameron is often on set, being an actress. Also she's been known to be bitchy and crazy in relationships (see the end of Timberlake and how she reacted to Biel).

I suppose it could be Depp-Manson-Heard as well.

Don't really like anyone else for this yet.

@wandergenie - supposedly Lainey had arm surgery.

Thanks @Judith Cavill for those articles.

lynnep said...

Confirmed, more or less, to be Johnny Depp/ Amber Heard, and Marilyn Manson today!"[Johnny Depp has been] hanging out on the couch with his best friend Marilyn Manson, who’s also been spending time in Australia the last few weeks to play a music festival. I don’t think I could have coughed any louder."

"Probably just an innocent fall, perhaps while hanging out on the couch with his best friend Marilyn Manson, who’s also been spending time in Australia the last few weeks to play a music festival. I don’t think I could have coughed any louder."

dmholl said...

Lainey confirmed as Depp in her post today.

Jen said...

Today's post by Lainey about Johnny Depp pretty much confirms that this is Johnny Depp, Marilyn Manson and Amber Heard.

"If he’s even there, that is. Johnny’s Best Friend Forever, Marilyn Manson, has had a couple of weeks off from his tour. I’d look on his couch before I’d check his wife’s."

Kimba said...

In today's heading "where's Johnny?" Lainey is telling Amber to look for Johnny on his BBF Marilyn's couch....Amber is too busy stumbling in and out of clubs and Johnny still isn't back to work on Pirates 5.
He feels the same as the audience - bored.
