The Hot Fling Cover Up

[BlindGossip] These two performers had a hot fling years ago. Now they are both “happily” married to other people… and they are having another hot fling with each other! They are very quietly trying to book a project together so that they will have a legitimate excuse for spending time together. If they succeed, watch for them to express surprise that the other is committed to the project as well, to express only mild pleasure that they will be working together, and to act like it’s no big deal. If their spouses knew what was really going on, though, believe us, it would be a very big deal!

    Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow. I would have said Brad and Gwynnie but the word “marriage” in the blind nixed that idea. I am secretly waiting/hoping that Brad/Goopy hook up again ON THE BIG SCREEN ONLY! (the movie would make money – even if the script was crappy) Trust.

  2. PandoraWolf says

    I wanted to say Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton, but use of ‘fling’ and ‘married’ rule it out…

    • amagod121 says

      I’m on board with this guess because of the “happily” married, as in they’re not but it’s said in public that they are. Gwynie’s always gushing about her marriage but is never seen with hubby and Jen is also another, albeit quieter gusher but Ben always looks miserable in pictures of them together.

    • thefantasticspazzomatic says

      Yeah its so sad how he always looks miserable when hes with his family. I say if he is unhappy, he should get a divorce, they both could move on and honestly, they’re no “power couple,” not like either of them are so hot anymore that they need to stay together for publicity. And p.s., i’m a 718NON-mom lmao!

  3. Beauty says

    Gladys Knight and Urkel Dancing with the Stars. My second guess is Nick Lachey and Natasha Bedinfield who once toured together. These are wild guesses, I must be drunk.

      • mcwmomma says

        thx! in “falling in love” together & he supposedly said that she’s his fave actress to work with…..if not me, then by all means her!

    • sarahbear says

      I can’t see this. DeNiro isn’t into white women, doubtful even for Streep.
      Besides, did you SEE how she thanked her hubby in her Oscar speech? Meryl is too hood to be a cheater!

      • Sugar Cookie says

        I don’t know if it’s DeNiro and Streep or not, but He is into white women. He hit on Sara Dallin from Bananarama. They made out and he told her she had nice eyes.

      • MoeschaB says

        I agree. DeNiro keeps his “fling” options open and well-guarded to “the set”. He is hardly the only one in the biz who “happily” marries one way and “flings-a-la-project” another.

      • mcwmomma says

        great info! but still secretly wishing it were me! ok not so secretly…..but a gurl can dream!

    Julia Roberts and Richard Gere or Dermot Mulroney. The picture reminds me of Julia and Richard in Pretty Woman.

  5. GoesInCircles says

    Ben and Gwen. Cuz of that other blind about him wanting to get back with his ex until Jen got preggers.

  6. MoeschaB says

    Just to add some spice, what about CZJ and Antonio Banderas. That would be a ” very big deal” to their respective spouses. I am purely speculating, of course. Their on-screen chemistry as Zorro and Elena was beyond-phenom but I have no idea if they took anything off, ‘off-screen’.

    • wykkyd says

      I really like this guess, the photo looks a lot like these two. Plus, when I think of “happily” married folk, neither Affleck nor Paltrow come to mind.

    • Shouldbeworking says

      This is a VERY good guess. Also possible: Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, his co-star in Desperado. Their love scene in that movie was smoking hot! If they were reunited on a film, it would generate some media attention.

  7. redtape09 says

    The word ‘performers’ made me think they were in music but most people are guessing actors. Hmm. This is a tough one.

    • brunettegal804 says

      I agree with you. It sounds more like musicians but I can’t think of anyone.

    • justplainawesome says

      I thought the same thing. And I think if it were Ben and Gwyn then it would refer to A list.

  8. sarahbear says

    I thought of Ben and Gwen right away, too, but they didn’t exactly have a hot fling. They were in a long term relationship.

    • MoeschaB says

      ooooh,this guess is too juicy! Good one. They would “work” together and make the union sound oh, so-matter-of-fact. Ha! Ms. Roberts has often said it has to be a great project to get her away from the fam. And Tom has got the high industry cred and top billing to stroke her ego enough to make the effort. Cant really say wether or not they had a “fling”. On or off screen, they dont really sizzle. I dont picture Mr. Hanks having an off-screen fling with anyone – including Rita.

    • thefantasticspazzomatic says

      Tom Hanks is as “hot” as a frozen Atlantic cod patty. Love Garbage, gurrrll!!!! :)

  9. Shouldbeworking says

    Just as a note, it’s interesting that this blind is studiously non-gendered.

    • MoeschaB says

      good point. just a firm nod on “married” as the performers current status. this does put another angle on things. I think this is the juiciest blind i have pondered. I will get nothing done today…crud.

      • brunettegal804 says

        ITA…I can’t put this one out of my head but I keep hitting a dead end with my guesses. I’ve even thought maybe one is a comedian but can’t think of anyone.

  10. CheshireKitty says

    The keys here I think are:

    Performers – Intentionally vague; if they were both actors, why wouldn’t Ace say so?

    Project – Again, vague; could be, eg a concert tour with a singer and back-up dancer, a collab on an album, etc. Not just a movie.

    “happily” – The quotes implies that the performers talk of being happily married but are anything but/known to be miserable

    For something a little different though, I’m going to go with Gwyneth Paltrow and Matt Damon. The blind doesn’t say the previous fling is public knowledge… Gwyneth and Damon could have hooked up for a fling during one of her off periods with Affleck (The Talented Mr. Ripley era). They recently worked together on Contagion, which could have rekindled things and would seem like “no big deal” since they didn’t really act together in that film. But considering the lovey-dovey relationship of Damon and wife and Goopy’s “OMG look at my perfect family and life” website, it would be a very big deal if the spouses knew – never mind Affleck!

    • MoeschaB says

      CheshireKitty is onto something but if the previous “fling” isnt public knowledge and a mere possibility – it really could be a million scenarios. I keep going back to Paltrow as half of this blind, NOT because she is an actor but because the last line in the blind states an affair “would be a very big deal” to the spouse (as well as the public due to our perception of them – imo). And when Goopy plasters her perfect family all over the web in a “how too…” type fashion, she will be a target – she knows this. I do tend to like Damon and her now…wow that would be fun to watch.

  11. mar1ey says

    Brooke Burke and Josh Duhamel. She appeared on his show, ‘Las Vegas’ (hint: deal, big deal). A stretch, but the hint doesn’t say actors, nor musicians, etc; it says performers. So, one is a spokesperson and one an actor.

  12. karlos says

    Mariah Carey, Leanne Rimes or Gwen Stefani? Wish I could say Mariah Carey and Eminem, but he is not married.

  13. karlos says

    Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal. Perez, in noting the birth of Kanal’s and Erin Reese Lokits’ child, refers to her as Kanal’s “wifey” but I can’t find any other ref that they are married.

    • rmp1017 says

      I will always, always want this to happen.
      But couldn’t they just do another tour or album if they needed an excuse? That’s my only qualm with the guess.

  14. CosmoMan says

    I respect all of the guesses so far but I am intrigued by the fact that the blind is so gender neutral. Perhaps it’s not a hetero couple?

  15. sarahbear says

    LeAnne Rimes has a song named “Big Deal”
    She’s wayyyy too desperate to keep Eddie Cibrian for me to believe she’s the cheater, Eddie as the more accomplished pedigree.
    I’m guessing Eddie and someone from Third Watch. Any on set rumors about him and a costar? Kim raver?

  16. MoeschaB says

    Tom Cruise and another married man or woman who has both a brief history with him (that we may or may not know about in the public)as well as some sort of talent that is “performed”.

  17. redstilettos says

    Since BG’s photos are usually a hint, I don’t think it’s Ben & Goop. The woman here is a brunette. Ben & JLo, but is she a brunette right now?

    • MoeschaB says

      I was thinking this Ben/JLo too but she is at the tail end of a divorce – blind says seemingly “happily” married. She is downright NOT happy- she’s divorcing. And yeah, I think she is brunette. Is Ace that specific with photos. I havent noticed but i am new at this (obviously). That anotjher reason why i thought a man/woman having the fling though… I am not sure how much pictures play as clues. Help?
