    Can’t be George Clooney, he apparently done this job when he was in his teens, you would like to think he would at least like to acknowledge his driver. Although it could be that the recent run in with the actor he used to drive everywhere made him think of his own driver and lead him to ask his name . . .

    Can’t see it being Brad, always pictures of him with his wife and kids in the car driving about.

    Possibly a *single* A list male actor . . . too many to pick from. -_- Need more clues.

      Agree. And according to “rumors” Clooney and Pitt are supposedly very friendly and polite.

    • LolaVee says

      Yeah. A little gander back at what George Clooney was doing 20 years ago (made for TV movies, Golden Girls, Roseanne) makes me think he probably didn’t have a full time driver at the time anyways.

      Probably somebody older!

    Never-say-names DeNiro! He is so guarded, by nature, he could have easily just missed the “names” part of the convo and who asks names after a few months much less 20 years? – dont want to appear rude! I get it. Doesnt mean the actor didnt have pleasant enough conversations with his driver. I am assuming this is his driver out-and-about NYC so they obviously spent alot of time in the same small space. Who would understand DeNiro better?!? I dont see him being a jerk at all – just aloof. (yes, clearly a fan)

    • WhatLolaWants says

      The use of the word ‘driver’ makes me think of the movie “Taxi Driver” that he was in. Didn’t he also work as a taxi driver to prepared for the role? Could be him, but like you said, he always seemed shy and aloof to me too.

    It doesn’t say if the actor is still alive or not. If alive, Jack Nicholson? Michael Douglas?

  4. CindyB says

    I don’t see any clues. A real *blind* item – ha! Okay, I’ll just guess Jack Nicholson. I could just see him calling the driver “Son” for twenty years!

    Robert deniro… I saw him at Nobu in new york once and he didn’t acknowledge any of the servers and talked on the phone for the majority of the dinner (while his wife talked on her phone as well). I imagine he would treat a car driver the same way.

    • mcwmomma says

      Sadness, that he (or anyone) would do that to people…..oh well, still love him! But have read that Stallone doesnt want people to look at or speak to him…..not sure, either way its kind of sad.

    I don’t know but the first person that came to my mind was Sean Connery. He has said in the past that it was okay to hit a woman if she deserves it. It has nothing to do with this situation, but if someone is that much of a jerk about that, I could see him being a jerk in this situation.

  7. NiceVixen says

    Morgan Freeman, Driving Miss Daisy? Not sure if I would consider him A-list…

  8. sawyer319 says

    Im guessing this is jack Nicholson or Robert deniro, but I love deniro so much…hope it’s not him. This is INSANE. 20 years?! I love celebs as much as the next gossip hound, but to me this is just more evidence the stars ARE NOT like the rest o’ us. 0_o
    *grumbles with discontent*

    A driver once told me that Sly Stalone personally instructed him (the driver) on day one to never look at him (Stalone). Maybe it’s him?

  10. Dragnflyz says

    My guess would be Sylvester Stallone… especially with his thing about not wanting anyone looking him in the eye.

  11. liteNOTSObrite says

    Clearly it is a star who has had enough dough to have a personal driver for 20 years. I’m going with Stallone or Schwarzenegger.

  12. cowgirl13 says

    John Travolta. The weird hair looks like Travoltas and the uniform reminds me of a pilot.

  13. malkatz says

    I thought of Tom Cruise, but have heard he is incredibly courteous. Same with Schwarzenegger.

    I heard from the same sources that Stallone is beyond rude.

  14. phyllis says

    It doesn’t say that the actor is alive, right? Couldn’t this be some old time actor, like Henry Ford?

  15. CheshireKitty says

    I’ll just throw out a definite NOT for this – Anthony Hopkins. Just after Silence of the Lambs came out and went big, a friend of mine and her friend were staying at a resort with a golf course attached. They wandered for a walk and got horribly lost. A man drives up on a golf cart, offers them a lift back and water, etc. Very nice. They got back to their room, happened to see a commercial and realized Sir Anthony himself was their saviour from dehydration. (My friend was embarrassed that she didn’t recognize him back then).

    Clooney and Pitt are also too nice.

    I’ll go Deniro because I haven’t a clue.

  16. cazkinscandycat123 says

    well its definitely not Tom Cruise. Ace..am I allowed to share a wonderful story about tom cruise? I was visiting my daughter who was at Kent university (England) a few years back. On the return journey home, my younger daughter then aged about 10 was desperate to go to the toilet and we still had over an hours journey home. Through countryside and miles of fields, we had no choice except pull up near a field surrounded by hedges. My daughter scrambled over a stile into the field and was gone a longggg time so much so we got out the car climbed the stile and there she was coming over the field with Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise! They were filming a tv show called Top Gear at an old airfield in Kent , i think they filmed outdoor car driving on the old airstrip, my daughter had interrupted them having a picnic lunch break on the edge of this field and they thought it too funny she had gone in to use the field as she had been caught short, theyd let her use a trailer bathroom, given her autographs and were walking her back to our car safely and then posed for pictures, a wonderful person

    No idea but aren’t most of the guesses here for actors way too young – who have not been A list for long enough.

    I would have thought it was someone of the Douglas, De Niro, Big Jack, Stallone, etc, era. Someone who was A list in the 80s at least.
