He’s Trying to Intercept Affair Gossip

LaineyGossipA riddle for your troubles? How about this? He strayed with an actress on the set of his recent film, and is now desperate to keep it from his wife, who suspected, but who was won over by a family holiday and his new doting attitude. Only now the other woman is upset, threatening to overturn the peace, so he’s been calling in favours everywhere else to get her cast in another movie she’s not actually right for, just to get her to shut up. The favours he’s using up however could jeopardise his own project, and the people who are counting on his participation are getting increasingly anxious that he might f-ck it up for everyone else. Major stress and sleepless nights. It’s Not Blake Lively.

    ben, jen and that other chick forgot her name.lol

  • jenb

    ben, jen and blake lively.

  • jenb

    scratch that i missed the not blake lively part.lol

  • CatGrant

    The riddle part makes me think it’s someone from the Batman franchise. Christian Bale? Tom Hardy?

    Using leverage to get the mistress Lois Lane in Nolan’s Superman reboot?

  • ou812

    Ooh ooh! Didn’t I just read somewhere that Javier Bardem and Julia Roberts had an affair on the set of Eat Pray Love?
    Yes I did. And now I’m hearing rumors that Julia is being considered as the evil witch in a new Snow White production.

    If so, that’s my guess.

    • lissy

      I wouldn’t think that Julia Roberts would need any help in getting a role. She is an Oscar winner which means she is A-list. I think she has more Hollywood clout then Javier Bardem. I like that your guess though is not the typical lively/affleck.

    • MarcyMM

      I liked this too but I don’t see Julia getting upset. I could see her fooling around, sure, but she’s always talking about her husband. This sounds more like someone who is single.

      • ou812

        On 2nd read I have to agree. Wording doesn’t def state it’s an actor, maybe a director? The British slant on the words is confusing as well. I got nothing.

  • Bubbles

    Could it be someone British? Havouc, fraternise are British English.

  • Junior Mint

    “overturn the peace” is an odd turn of phrase…feel like there must be a clue there

  • bananas

    I’m going to guess either Cillian Murpgy…married and starred in Inception and both of Nolan’s Batman movies to date…Also could be Gary Oldman perhaps?

  • Erin

    Christian Bale’s only movie in 2010 was The Fighter, there don’t seem to be any really fitting contenders since Amy Adams is married and Melissa Leo seems a bit on the older side for him and a bit on the mature (hopefully) side for a stunt like this.

    Affleck and Rebecca Hall (only because of the Lively reference it makes me think Affleck) possibly. I don’t think she’s in a relationship, but IMDB doesn’t have any future projects listed. She’s British and young.

    I tried Matt Damon on the Affleck connection and found nothing…

    I am clearly a super sleuth. *eyeroll*

  • smd1004p

    lets go to basics and remember “sleepless in seattle”…what about tom hanks

  • jaby

    She does not say this is about an actor.Clues like “intercept” & “riddle” suggest both “Batman” & “Interception”. How about the Writer/Director of Batman & Interception Christopher Nolan himself? He is widely admired for his work on the film “Insomnia”,about sleepless nights.He has been married since 1997, has 2 kids & is British.Helming both Batman & Superman reboots he has a lot a lot going on.Pre-nuptial agreements aren’t lawful in the UK.

    • bob the builder

      I thought about Nolan, but wouldn’t Thomas have found out by now? Since Inception wrapped filming more than a year ago (and has been released since then).

  • ILoveDlisted

    Blake Lively, even though it says it isnt. It’s happened before!

  • Ralphie

    I was thinking Kyle McLachlan because of the desperate thing and he’s really the only male on DH who does movies…was recently in a movie with Elizabeth Olsen who could use the exposure…

    But might the desperate refer to Felicity Huffman and thus William H Macy? Wasn’t there another recent cheating bilnd that he was a guess for? He’s still doing film even with that Showtime series.

  • bob the builder

    I’ll throw another name out there but have nothing to back it up. Michael Douglas, film was Haywire and the film that could be in jeopardy is Liberace (or one of the films he’s going to produce).

  • Erin

    I have tried to find someone that would fit with Leighton Meister and the only ones I could find that MIGHT is Hugh Laurie or Tim McGraw, but I’m not sure what future projects they are jeopardizing.

    Clues: Gossip in title for “Gossip Girl” and Blake Lively also being on GG with her.

  • plum

    there is a major here: the BI is different from the original. Lainey doesn’t write “it’s not Blake Lively” but
    :Ali! I’m sorry to hear about the pipe, the flood, that beautiful kitchen!!! A riddle for your troubles? How about this? He strayed with an actress on the set of his recent film, and is now desperate to keep it from his wife, who suspected, but who was won over by a family holiday and his new doting attitude. Only now the other woman is upset, threatening to overturn the peace, so he’s been calling in favours everywhere else to get her cast in another movie she’s not actually right for, just to get her to shut up. The favours he’s using up however could jeopardise his own project, and the people who are counting on his participation are getting increasingly anxious that he might f-ck it up for everyone else. Major stress and sleepless nights. Not unlike how it would be to be quarantined to one room with four kids and a dog!

  • Elfie

    I was thinking Anne Hathaway because of the “get her cast in another movie she’s not actually right for”, everyone has been saying she isn’t good for the role. But I’m nt seeing her doing this…

  • lauralee

    Brian Austin Green? He is on Desperate Housewives and I guess “spell” will be for Aaron Spelling and new doting attitude for new wife Megan Fox? And “overturn the peace” allusion of overturning the cars in Transformers?

  • pat362

    I feel that this can only be Christopher Nolan. The use of the term “Riddle for your trouble” implying the Riddler from Batman and they mention that the favors he’s using up are jeopardising participation on his own project meaning that he won’t have time to write the screenplay on time or be ready to direct it. I think Christian Bale has said that he won’t do Batman without Christoper so if Christopher has to pull out then there won’t be a next Batman.

  • MPaige

    I’m going with Aston Kutchar with Olivia Thornby in the movie M

  • lcl22

    Alot of times with Lainey her nots are clues. Also she had pics of Jen and Ben in Hawaii a little bit ago. So how about Ben and Jen and Rebecca Hall (the other girl in the Town)

  • TxGal

    Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem (Eat Pray Love)

  • CatInTheHat

    Mark Wahlberg keeps coming to my mind immediately for some reason….must be the four kids and a dog part of the blind.

  • capturedbyrobots

    I have NFI on any of these, but I am loving the Packer shoutout!

  • buttercup

    Has this been solved as Stephen Soderbergh? Front page news at E! today.

    • insider1970

      I don’t think it’s him..It says he strayed on the set of his recent film and Soderbergh strayed during his stay in Australia to direct a play, not movie! Plus, I don’t think the woman involved with Soderbergh is an actress, at least there is no such mention in the article I read.

  • JaundiceMachine

    Chris Nolan. Between “riddles” and “sleepless” (DKR, Inception, Insomnia) and the fact that his name carries serious weight in Hollywood right now (producer, director, and screenwriter) I have a hard time thinking anyone else would be in a position to “fit” an actress where she doesn’t belong.

    The actress in question? Christian Bale, of course.

  • Soccermom

    Say it ain’t so. Very long time lurked. First time poster. I think this is related to the blind last year about a kitten and a puppy, I am pained to say who I think it is because he is my favorite actor and overall individual on the planet. He has 4 kids and has been praising his wides attributes in the press. Cutest couple ever so I hope he did not croissant the line with costar EB. She is nothing compared to what he has

  • ChiTownTeacher

    I hope this is a worthy first post: I am thinking it’s def Ben A and Rebecca Hall. He was just recently announced as director of an Iran-themed movie that is somehow connected to George Clooney. It was also just announced that Rebecca will play the lead role in “Lay the Favorite” from Focus Features. That doesn’t seem like a role she is naturally right for. Plus the “not blake lively” leads me back to the riddle mentioned in the first line. Not BA and BL, but BA and RH – same movie (the Town), different actress.

    • Erin

      OK – I kind of guessed this as well above, and now I see the connection to Chris Nolan’s Inception/Riddler. Rebecca Hall was in The Prestige (LOVE that movie) with Christian Bale (Batman).

      I think it’s definitely Rebecca Hall & Ben Affleck. I’m bummed because I really like her. I also researched her projects and saw the same one that you did and didn’t think it fit her normal roles.

      • insider1970

        Plus, the “four kids” mention in the blind could be a reference to Affleck’s best friend, Matt Damon who has four kids. If it’s not Damon himself..

  • Soccermom

    I am very torn on what to say because I feel like a traitor. This is my favorite actor and seems like a genuinely good guy but the clues make sense. Let me think about this before I put words to ‘pen’. I hope someone else solves this and that I am wrong

  • khaki

    I believe Soccermom believes it’s Matt Damon. It fits. I’d be terribly disappointed too. The actress would be Emily Blunt. He has four kids and the quarantined refers to Contagion. I don’t want it to be him either!
