These Oscar Noms Aren’t Exactly Lunch Pals

oscar luncheon 2013

[Blind Gossip] Which two celebrities carefully avoided each other during the 2013 Oscar Nominees Luncheon and Class Photo? The two men have worked together, and everyone assumes that they are friends. However, one of the men had a brief affair with the other man’s Significant Other. The two got into a fight about it (no punches were thrown, although there was some shoving and a lot of yelling and name-calling), and have avoided each other ever since.

Here is a link to a full-size, clickable photo of the entire group.

    Complete guesses… Ben affleck and joaquin phoenix…or tommy lee jones and robert de niro?

  2. Booboo1068 says

    Wow, Ace actual photos now?! You are getting it! But, again Im lost. The two who stood out were Ben Affleck and Steven Spielberg? Unless Significant Other refers to a MALE?

  3. stolidog says

    Easy. Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck.
    Ben Affleck had an affair with Cooper’s former partner, Victor Gables, who was starring in Alias at the time with Affleck’s wife, Jennifer Garner.

    • tiredofwhining says

      Do you mean Victor Garber? That can’t be, since Garber’s partner for the past 14 years has been Rainer Andreesen, who frankly, makes Bradley Cooper, yummy as he is, look like chopped liver…..

      • Micky says

        Gay man’s wishful-weed. lol

        Seriously though, Affleck is a dog & an alcoholic so I wouldn’t be surprised if he was sniffing around another man’s girl.

    • MizGrandma says

      Think tht was Vicotr Garber, though have not heard of the affair. Garber has been in a very long-term relationship.

    • 4sixx2 says

      Wow, I love it. Other guesses think Coop smooched Jen, but that’s just not right. It makes much more sense Cheat Dog Ben coveted a Coop girl. No punches were thrown because Coop didn’t love his beard, but he didn’t love being disrespected either. Team Stoli!

      • 4sixx2 says

        Wait, what??!!! LOL! I read “VictorIA Gables” (should be Victor Garber). Too Funny! Ok, I STILL think that it’s Ben & Bradley, but that Ben borrowed a Beard, not a Boy. Still <3 Stoli!

    • raslebol says

      it’s probably why they spend so many time together during the award shows (according to many pics)

  4. kookywooky says

    Joaquin Phoenix & Tim Burton?

    Joaquin Phoenix & Phillip Seymour Hoffman?

    Joaquin Phoenix & Daniel Day Lewis?

    Ben Affleck & Stephen Speilberg?

    Robert DeNiro & Denzel Washington?

  5. ladyluck27 says

    bradley cooper and ben affleck are the obvious choice, but i’ve read blinds that bcoop is gay and that jennifer garner is very committed to ben (and he is the cheat). So, i’m not sure.

  6. zeep says

    Ben Affleck & Bradley Cooper? Cooper and Garner worked together on Alias. But he was on Today on the day of nominations saying Affleck was snubbed, so I don’t see it being about them.

    Affleck has also worked with Tommy Lee Jones, who is in an upcoming movie with De Niro.

  7. aeduko says

    Affleck and Clooney? I got nothing.

    But that little girl is the cutest. Best looking of the bunch!!

  8. WellbeaDream says

    So.. This is my first time posting so I’m guessing it has something to do with either Bradley or Ben Affleck.

  9. WaitLemmeGuess says

    This is tougher than I thought. I want to guess Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck because they worked together in He’s Just Not That into You, and Cooper worked with Jennifer Garner on Alias. But there’s pictures of Brad and Ben laughing it up and hugging at a the Critic’s Choice Awards just a month ago. Sooo, I’m stumped.

  10. randijane says

    Actors: Ben Affleck and Bradley Cooper
    Significant Other: Jennifer Garner

    BC and JG worked together and dated back when Alias was on television. BA and BC were in “He’s Just Not That Into You” together.

  11. Letmeguess says

    I’m guessing Tim Burton and Steven Spielberg…. only because I spent waaaay too much time staring / clicking / zooming on this picture while trying to piece clues together and it was the only thing I could come up with.

  12. lepidoteran says

    I’d guess Affleck and Cooper (who were also in Changing Lanes together in addition to He’s Just Not that Into You), and considering the frequent BIs suggesting Cooper’s gay, I’ll guess that Affleck had a fling with one of the women (“Significant Other”) Cooper had a “relationship” with and Cooper (also rumored to have a pretty bad temper) got mad that Affleck was intruding on his set-up relationship, not that he had a romantic rival.

    Off the top of my head, Cooper’s been with Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Esposito, and Renee Zellweger for what it’s worth…

  13. MrsBreeder says

    That’s like a Where’s Waldo picture.

    I have no idea…but I really hope the man (wearing glasses) standing next to Jessica Chastain is involved. He’s awesome.

  14. Ralphie says

    I want to say that the fight and throw a punch are references to David O. Russell who directed the Fighter and is nommed for Silver Linings Playbook. My thought was Affleck, too, but back when he was dating Gwyneth, who was in Russell’s I Heart Huckabees, but I don’t really know of anything Russell and Affleck have done together or the timing of the affair. It’s all I’ve got.

    Damn, poor Jen Lawrence was shoved WAY in the back row, huh?

  15. durdik says

    it can’t be Bradley and Ben. They are working together on an upcoming film. Plus, they were all hugging and laughing at one of the awards. AND Bradley was on Kimmel recently and said something about Ben. I really think they’re good.

  16. durdik says

    How about Bradley Cooper and George Clooney? Considering George wasn’t too happy about BRadley getting the SMA cover.

  17. sweetcheeks says

    Well it cant be Ben and Joaquin, as technically they are family….Hugh Jackman is just a sweetheart, so I can’t see that…so, in other words, I dunno. I like the David O Russell thing.

  18. bellsie says

    I have no idea on who the blind is about, but I can’t help but mention how ecstatic Ben Affleck looks in that photo.. *Sarcasm*

  19. kermit1969 says

    Since this refers to two male celebrities I will say:

    Ben Affleck is angry. Harvey Weinstein slept with Gwyneth Paltrow back in the day when Ben was dating her. Affleck/Weinstein

    • Micky says

      Nah. Ben produced a crap movie in an HBO competition for new filmakers on Harvey’s tab. Ben was already with JLo so he couldn’t have been too mad at Harvey.

  20. GeeMoney says

    Wild guess… Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper. I’m thinking that Hugh slept with Victor Garber at some point in time while him and Bradley were hooking up… lol.

  21. ILoveLucy says

    I zoomed and looked at everyone and never found Affleck. But how awesome does Sally Field look? And the guy in the front row, far right, is doing that thing with his fingers “Look Here”, usually near their nether regions. Kids do that, always boys! Anyway, this pic made me very sad. It reminded me of all the group photos that the photog never took at my only daughters wedding. Not one. ALWAYSake sure the photog knows you want everybody in and all groups photo’s taken at a wedding and important event. You can never go back. So do it right the 1st time. It’s depressing because we know all of those people and family will never be together all at once again. :( That really all I got from this photo. Sorry

    • ChattyCat says

      OH NO!!! That’s terrible. My parents don’t have photos of their monumental day either. They married 50yrs ago. One of my dad’s cousins offered to be photographer for the day (no big fancy wedding photographer available in their little italian village). At the end of the day he realised he’d forgotten to load film into the camera! I would have killed him. My parents have always been WAAAY too nice…they let him live.

  22. curious13 says

    George Clooney hates David O’Russell, but I’m sure this guess is about Ben Affleck. Maybe George stealing Matt Damon away from Ben.

  23. bored_and_thinking says

    Jen Garner was in a short lived TV series called “Significant Others” So my bets on Ben

  24. Vampa15 says

    I’m just throwing this out there, but Robert De Niro had a fling with Steven Spielberg’s wife maybe? The wording says to celebrities but not necessarily two actors
