America’s Sweetheart Was Screwed Over By Her Publicist

american flag 1[Naughty But Nice Rob] Which A-list star has no idea she is being bartered by her publicist?

Which New York based publicist, who has built an entire business around one A-list client, has been using her star client for years to barter publicity for all her other clients?

But now, after years of denying access to her one movie star unless you interview her dentists, fashion and D-list beauty clients, the publicist is finding out that her A-list client does not have the power that she once did.

“For over 10 years we have had to have these D-list people on our show because they have the same publicist as one certain movie star and it has been made clear if you don’t take one you do not get the other,” one Executive Producer tells Naughty But Nice Rob. “But now, her A-list client does not have the power she once had. Her last several movies have been a disaster and now we have a new American sweetheart.”

Ouch!

    Isn’t Reece Witherspoon America’s Sweetheart?

    I think it’s either Julia Roberts or Catherine Zeta-Jones. I don’t know the publicist for either of them.

    New America’s Sweetheart: Reese Witherspoon

    • KatarinaJ

      I don’t think Zeta Jones was EVER described as a Sweetheart. She plays sexy or dramatic roles, never adorable loving rom-com stuff. And Reese hasn’t been America’s NEW Sweetheart for years. Post her arrest etc I don’t think she’d get labeled this NOW of all times either.

    • cl_melisca

      ..and Catherine Zeta-Jones is Welsh, not American. At least we can rule her out.

  • Charity

    Jennifer Aniston?

  • PixieNina

    Reese or sandra

  • RuHa

    Former America’s sweetheart – Reese
    Disaster films – water for elephants, anything after that
    New sweetheart – Jennifer Lawrence
    No clue about the publicist

    sweetheart client: reese Witherspoon
    New sweetheart client: Jennifer lawrence

  • iocaine

    It’s Marcy Engelman, Julia Roberts’ publicist. Any movie she has done in the last 10 years has been pretty awful. Not sure who’d count as a “new” American sweetheart. Jennifer Lawrence?

  • PghDude

    This is clearly a reference to Jennifer Aniston and America’s newest sweetheart, Jennifer Lawrence. As far as disaster films, all of Aniston’s films are mediocre at best.

    Her America’s Sweetheart Client: Jennifer Aniston

    Disaster films: Wanderlust, Just Go with It, Bounty Hunter, etc.

    New America’s Sweetheart: Anne Hathaway

    I could totally be wrong, though. They share the same publicist, both A list actresses, but Anne Hathaway is an award-winning actress and is being offered huge roles. She’s working with Christopher Nolan again, and Steven Spielberg. While, Aniston is more famous for being a celebrity rather than actress. Once again, I could be totally wrong lol. Disregard this message, I didn’t read the part where it mentioned the gender of the publicist.

  • Naija_girl

    I wanna say this sounds like Reese Witherspoon. IDK who her pub. is though…

    Disaster films include This Means War, How Do You Know, and Water for Elephants

    New sweetheart…Jennifer Lawrence?

    • Naija_girl

      Wait I change my answer to Julia Roberts!! Her pub. is Marcy Engelman, based in NY and she has lots of beauty and fashion clients! Roberts is her only star client.

      I’m still sticking with Jennifer Lawrence though!!

    Julia Roberts was, of course, in a movie called America’s Sweetheart. Engelman doesn’t list any other actresses or entertainers on her website as clients, but has a lot of “beauty” and “fashion” types listed (including Bobbi Brown)

    I’m guessing the “show” is Access Hollywood or something like that.

    Ok, not sure at all, but:

    Nancy Seltzer
    Julia Roberts
    Mirror, Mirror (beaten by Charlize Theron’s movie with the same theme), but also Larry Crowne and Eat Pray Love.
    Reese Witherspoon (or is it already Jennifer Lawrence?)

    America’s New Sweetheart: Emma Stone

    Julia starred in the movie America’s Sweethearts and her last couple of films have tanked. Emma just seems like the new Julia Roberts, starring in roles that would have gone to Julia 10-15 years ago.

    Reese weatherspoon the America sweetheart.

  • lookeehere

    A list: Oprah??

    Her two movies

    People like dr phil, her chefs, personal trainers, spiritual mentors, etc?

  • luv the beach

    dont think its Reese, she has an Oscar. more likely Julia or Jennifer Aniston. Does anyone else find Jen A. as annoying as I do?

  • guessingnotknowing

    I think the phrase “America’s Sweethearts” is a big clue.
    Julia Roberts was in a movie with that title, alongside Catherine Zeta Jones and John Cusack.
    I am going with Julia rather than Catherine on this one.

    Disaster films: Most of what has come out in the last year? lol

    New America’s Sweetheart: I’m gonna say Emma Stone or Rachel McAdams?

    Can’t be Jennifer Aniston, her publicist has many other A list clients, as does Reese. Roberts’ NY publicist only has her as an A list client. Which is weird since she has an LA publicist.

    Reese is not the new sweetheart, she’s been around forever and got a lot of flack for her arrest.

  • minx

    Steven Huvane is the publicist. He has made an industry of touting Jennifer Aniston forever. I would say Jennifer Lawrence is the new sweetheart.

    Got to be Reese, obviously not america’s sweetheart anymore lately

  • Biglet

    I had to create an account just to reply (Hi Ace – love your site!) no idea why people rag on Aniston so much? Ok, her movies arent the best – but she took the high road in her divorce from Brad and didnt bad mouth him, and it seems like whenever someone wants to bring him up she is reserved in her answers (“not cool”) – class act lady!
    And when I see interviews of her, she comes across as warm and easy to talk to. So why the hate?!

  • mizzavrid

    This reeks of Julia Roberts who is super nasty to all unless she’s promoting her films which have been tanking for years. And her publicist is a ‘she’, Marcy whatever. And thankfully, we have a new ‘Sweetheart’ Jennifer Lawrence. Seems like she deserves the title unlike Roberts.

  • Superstition

    The part that throws me is the part that says, “For over 10 years we have had to have these D-list people on our show because they have the same publicist as one certain movie star and it has been made clear if you don’t take one you do not get the other,”

    That makes it sound like this person has been on a TV show (not just movies) for the last 10 years, doesn’t it?

  • FairyMay9

    Yeah, but I think julia is still pretty clouty. Hasn’t had any negative press in forever.

  • FairyMay9

    K, last reply, after reading thru, the julia replies are very compelling. But … I don’t want it to be true, so, I’m going w/reese witherspoon. New sweetheart probably jennifer lawrence. Emma stone not a bad guess, tho.

  • melina

    Catherine Zeta Jones
    Julia Roberts

  • Whyyess

    Another thing that makes this blind not about Jennifer Aniston is that out of Aniston’s past 4-5 movies, only 1, Wanderlust, has been a “disaster”. (I just checked bomojo for that info).The rest have more than made its share of profit.
