    Will Smith?
    His crappy scientology movie?Not even for free i’d watch it…ewww

    I can’t stand Will,his fake wife and his annoying and talentless kids.This family is pathetic…

    • stanton

      I 1,000,000% agree with you on that!!!

    • ValleyOfTheGalls

      Agreed! This is pathetic. I believe Smith has now replaced Tom Cruise as the worlds most annoying cult member. It’s painful to watch their “fun and wacky hijinx” talk show routine when we all know that Jaden Smith tried to emancipate himself from Will and his beard last year. Yeah, good times.

  • stolidog

    Will Smith. I have no idea what the injury is, but I think the whole world knows about the poor box office.

  • MKINK

    Robert Downey Jr is the first person that comes to mind, also Zac Efron but I do not know if he is considered a MEGA STAR

    Lady Gaga

    lady gaga comes to mind…

    Will Smith and that awful end of the world movie with his son

  • kittypryde777

    The Rock? He’s injured recently from WrestleMania and his movie “Fast & Furious 6″ just came out. Not sure how it’s doing, but am assuming it’s not performing as well as expected.

  • PandoraWolf

    Didn’t that Will/Jaden Smith movie do badly? I say Will.

  • MattinSF

    The Rock.

      Actually, box office can mean more than movie, so I will also say this could be Lady GaGa and her Broken Back, world tour being the project.

    Megastar: Lady Gaga

    Will Smith?

  • Smores

    This has got to be Will Smith.

  • Darkclouds84

    Lady Gaga, her tour was tanking.

  • august

    Will Smith’s movie came in third. So I think it’s him.

  • Nosy51

    Angelina milking it for Brad’s loser movie.

    • NeedNoStinkinBadges

      The way it’s worded makes it sound like the person who was injured is the person involved in the film. Regardless, I think you are right. While I wouldn’t say that they are milking it exactly, I think Brange orchestrated the announcement very, very carefully in terms of timing and method of information delivery. They knew that WWZ was a huge problem and at best the film will break even. But people will go for the Brange, especially the brave, saintly Brange.

    • kittyconfidential

      Agreed – The Brange is “milking” Angie’s mastectomy and breast reconstruction. Anyone surprised?

      • kittyconfidential

        The Brange are master marketers. Personal pics and stories abound when they have something to sell.

    Sean Penn? His son was in a traumatic accident a few years back. First time posting!

    • canigetawitness

      Oh, the clue was “milk.” My friend Bev figured it out. I was going to guess, “Annette Funicello?”

  • pretty leaf

    Lady Gaga

  • Loves the Latin Boys

    Will Smith.

    Project is the ‘After Earth’ disaster.

  • JenJenJen

    My first instinct is to say Will Smith as his recent movie bombed and he is a megastar actor. I don’t get the milking reference though…

  • Dance

    Brad Pitt
    World Z

  • CanaryCry

    I’d go with Will Smith’s laughable movie … the Lady Gaga hip thingy is too old, already.

  • DonnaStarla

    I would usually equate “box office” with movie receipts, not concert ticket sales.
    That being said, Lady Gaga obviously has had an injury…and not too long ago she was going to sue an ice cream manufacturer for naming a breast MILK ice cream after her. They called it “Baby Gaga”.

    • jonzjane

      I would too. but when I searched I found this

      I agree with your guess

      box office
      n.
      1. A booth, as in a theater or stadium, where tickets are sold.
      2.
      a. The drawing power of a theatrical entertainment or of a performer; popular appeal.
      b. A factor influencing this power: Notoriety is usually good box office.
      3. Total attendance for an entertainment; turnout.
      4. The amount of money received from ticket sales for an entertainment.

    One question HOW would an injury cover up bad box office? Meaning he is hurt NOW and talking about that more than the movie? I don’t get the correlation. And I don’t see how an injury would throw people off to box office numbers, reviews etc, unless he used this as fodder for interviews and let chatter of it ECLIPSE his convos about that particular movie. ?

  • luvprue1

    Tom Cruise . Both of his recent movie did poorly.

  • Lizzie616

    Big Boi, injured knee. Had “Shutterbug” remix by Vodka & Milk. Injured while performing “Bombs over Baghdad”.
    Not sure if he’s a mega star but this is the only thing matching the clues.

  • sdls

    Gaga had to cancel her tour as a result of her injury and was been seen in a custom Vuitton wheelchair, garnering press. She hasn’t rescheduled the tour and is instead chilling at resorts, etc. showing no sign of a hip surgery scar.

    p.s. that was my first post!

  • Beaverhausen

    I will go with Tom Cruise milking his ‘Jack Reacher’ injury to cover for his performance in ‘Oblivion.’

  • Up the Coast

    Brangelina
    WWZ

  • ghostrider44

    it is brad pitt and the project is his new movie,WWZ which is tanking at the box office, the word “milking” refers to Angie’s breasts. he was just on GMA to promote the movie but kept going on about Angelina’s Recovery, getting tested etc.

    Lady Gaga
