Celebs On A Plane

family planeSOLVED!

[Blind Gossip] Lots of celebs fly first class, but not all act in a first-class manner when they fly.

Perhaps they should take a lesson from these two celebs, a married couple who are both well-known actors. We’ll let someone who was on their flight tell the story.

They were both sitting with [their child/ren] in Economy class. A lot of people kept asking both of them for pictures, and they were very gracious to everyone who asked, even those who were a little rude about getting their pictures.

For example, at one point, [Actor] went into the lavatory, and when he came out a passenger snapped a picture with the flash directly in his face without asking, but he gave her a kind smile and then walked back to his seat.

The whole family was incredibly kind to the flight crew throughout the whole flight, and at one point one of the flight attendants wasn’t sure where she had seen him before, so he modestly told her that she might have seen him in [his current TV series], to which she replied no, it was something else. She then remembered she recognized him from [a science fiction film]. This made both him and [Actress] laugh, him saying something along the lines of that being one of his lesser-remembered movies and he was impressed that was the one she had connected to him.

Throughout the flight they were all quiet for the most part, but were very polite (please and thank yous from everyone, including their kids, when asking for their beverages, etc). All in all the entire family was very polite and very gracious to the other passengers and to the flight crew. Nice to meet celebrities who aren’t pretentious and stuck up!

BONUS CLUE 1: Happy Housewife

BONUS CLUE 2: They have both won Emmys and have both been nominated for Oscars.

Actor Husband:

His current TV series:

Actress Wife:

william h macy and felicity huffmanSOLVED!

It’s William Macy and Felicity Huffman! Source: BlindGossip.com

William is probably best known for his Academy Award-nominated performance in Fargo and his current Emmy-nominated role on the Showtime series Shameless.

Felicity is probably best known for her Emmy-winning role on Desperate Housewives, but we also love her Academy Award-nominated performance in Transamerica.

This event happened on a plane from Los Angeles to Denver in October 2013. The airline wants to remain anonymous.

We talk a lot on this site about fake showbiz couples and celebrities who behave badly. This is the opposite. Macy and Huffman have been married for 17 years. They are a super-talented, real couple who are known for always behaving with grace and dignity.

Kudos to both Macy and Huffman for exhibiting such class, and for raising such well-mannered children! (Yes, we’re talking about you, Sophia and Georgia!)

 

Congratulations to  MzDBDB for being first with the correct guess!

    Freddie Prinze Jr and Sarah Michelle Gellar?

  • minx

    I don’t know who this is, but it would be nice to know who acted so well.

  • ahnji

    Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiver?

  • VexTheVixen

    Wild guess – but flying economy after the Madoff debacle – Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick. Flying back to New York following the Golden Globe Awards where daughter Sosie was Miss Golden Globe so more than two tickets were needed? Their children are grown but still their children. His current TV series is The Following and, since it is stated that way, one gets the impression she used to have a series (The Closer). I can see all of them being very gracious and polite.

    They seem down-to-earth, plus the picture shows 2 kids, which they have (boy and a girl).

  • MzDBDB

    William H. Macy/Shameless/Felicity Huffman

    • missmissy

      Mystery Men for the film. Equally as bad as Jurassic Park – he was so miscast in his role. He also did The Cradle will Fall in the *0’s I believe. It was more of a mystery, but had sci-fi elements.

      • AuntieMame

        Every time I go out to shovel snow, I declare “I am The Shoveler! It’s what I do!” What a cool, patient family.

      • KWDragon

        I loved Mystery Men, and he was wonderful in it!

        Just an honest man with a shovel looking to make a difference in this crazy world…

      • pumpkin

        I though he was great in Mystery Men. The perfect mild-mannered would-be superhero.

    • everythingthatshines

      this is exactly who i was thinking as well!

    • jodie99

      YES. “happy housewife” for the prompt.

      Their 2 kids are pre-teen, teenagers, I think. I know people who’ve met them in my hometown and this is always the take on them — nice, polite, down-to-earth.

    • katee

      I think you’ve got it. Both have won Emmys and have been nominated for Oscars. I love him on Shameless!

    • Bromance1979

      Definitely them. I think “Happy Housewife” was a dead giveaway.

      They also seem very down to earth and not the types who would be above riding in coach.

    • pumpkin

      This is my guess, too.

    • phlyfiremama

      I am SO not surprised that this is them.

  • IconCU

    I have no idea who these people are but I love them!

  • scumby

    All I can think of Ben and Jen and Kevin Bacons family but I know they are both wrong. Maybe William H Macy and his family? That would be my guess

  • OhSoLittleMouse

    Ben and Jen?

  • mandy1728

    Actor Husband: Kevin Bacon

  • wfreshie

    nice to hear a good story once in a while!!!

  • Kerzep

    From out of nowhere I am guessing:

    Mark Harmon
    NCIS
    Pam Dawber

  • Danasaurus

    Actor Husband: William H. Macy

    His current TV series: Shameless

    Actress Wife: Felicity Huffman

    I’m guessing the sci-fi film was Jurassic Park III.

  • Zander24

    Nice, pleasant, polite, and modest celebrities/actors? Even kind and very gracious? And, amazingly, even the kids were pleasant and polite? Who ARE these people?!

    Please reveal this ASAP! We all want to know! We want to thank them and recognize them for being decent human beings! Hard to believe that any such actors/celebrities could exist in Hollywood.

    • chandler02

      There are lots of celebs who are genuinely wonderful people, there are a lot that are jerks. Just like everyone else…lots of variety!

  • Cindy Louhoo

    I would like to think this is Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon. His current TV series is The Following.

    Clues: Your bonus clue (Happy Housewife) on Twitter gave it away. She was on Desperate Housewives and he was in Happy, Texas. They have 2 kids, just like the photo. He was in Air Force One (…on a plane) and all of the reference to being kind allude to Pleasantville. I can only hope that the sci-fi movie was Jurassic Park III, because that movie was pretty awful.

  • raslebol

    how to be pretentious when you travel in economy class?

  • zeep

    William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman were my first thought, and the Twitter clues confirm it. The movie being Jurassic Park III. They’ve always seemed nice and genuine, so this is nice to read.

  • NoVAgirl

    William h. Macy?
    Shameless?
    Felicity Huffman?

  • melissaonk97

    William H Macy and his wife?

  • NoVAgirl

    I take back my first guess after reading the Twitter clues.

    William H. Macy

    Shameless

    Felicity Huffman

  • Thrillckr

    William H. Macy & Felicity Huffman? Macy was nominated for Fargo, won an Emmy for writing. Felicity was nominated & won for Transamerica and won for Desperate Housewives.

  • buttersmom

    Actor Husband: William H Macy

    His current TV series: Shameless

    Actress Wife: Felicity Huffman

  • Caligirl

    Actor Husband: William H. Macy

    His current TV series: “Shameless”

    Actress Wife: Felicity Huffman

    CLUES:

    They’ve both been nominated for Oscars – his for “Fargo”, hers for “Transamerica”

    Both won Emmys – his for the TV Movie “Door to Door”, hers for “Desperate Housewives”

    Science fiction movie he was in that wasn’t so great – “Jurassic Park III” (not the best movie but he was memorable as the dad trying to find his kid on the island of dinosaurs)

    Twitter BONUS clue – “Happy Housewife” – Felicity Huffman was in Desperate Housewives

    Love this one. Glad to hear they are so nice and so gracious to their fans.

  • MaybeImRight

    Sounds like this family deserves for people to know that they, unlike most of their colleagues, are not holier-than-thou jerks!

  • Khadafi

    At least we know it can’t be Brangelina.
    Their kids are the horror, and so is Angelina
    and Brad.

  • Shannibird

    Thanks for sharing these nice blinds BG, it’s nice to be reminded that not everyone in Hollywood is horrible! Based on the bonus clue I’m gonna say William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman, and props to them both for being so down to earth and real :)

    Hope this one is solved. It’s a nice one. I have no idea who they could be.

  • caela94

    whoever they are they’re great

  • PrincessTiff

    I’m not trying to knock on the people who are guessing Kevin & Kyra, but I just don’t see someone not recognizing Kevin Bacon

  • pat362

    I’m going with Freddie, Sarah and family. The clues all fit and Freddie starred in the forgettable Wing Commander sci/fi movie in 99.

  • Tate

    William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman

    Side Note: just started watching Shameless. Amazing!!!

  • Aubergine Skye

    William H. Macy & Felicity Huffman. Nice!

  • itismc

    Come on, reveal this one. Why the secrecy? it’s all good!

  • HollyG

    “The one she had connected” would be six degrees of the always-awesome Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick.

  • ohmomma

    Want it to be Kyra/Kevin but unless I’m skimming imdb incorrectly! neither has been nominated for an oscar

  • La Llorona

    Mhmm…anyone else think this story is weird? I mean, it’s cool they were nice, I guess. But goddamn, they are people too. It’s sad they’re being harassed on an airplane while traveling as a family.

  • starryhayz

    Remember both have been nominated for Oscars…

    Actress: Felicity Huffman, “happy housewife” Desperate Housewives on ABC

  • classybgyrl

    Macy and Huffman both were nominated for academy awards, him for Fargo Huffman for Transamerica.

  • Dana5570

    Read the clues people. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick have never been nominated for Oscars, and Freddie Prinz Jr. and SMG most definitely have not. I’m thinking William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman. Both have won Emmys and have been nominated for Oscars.

  • jillphelps41

    I am thinking William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman too. I was really hoping that it was Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick because I love the old 80’s movie Tremors. lol However, I can’t recall Kevin and Kyra being nominated for an Oscar. So I’m gonna go will Macy/Huffman.

  • Chocolate695

    Huffman & Macy were nominated for Oscars ? when ?

  • CoCoJoe

    FH Transamerica 2005 (lead)
    WHM Fargo 1996 (supporting)

  • Erika

    I think my favourite thing on this site are the warm fuzzy solves like these ones. :) Great actors so it’s really nice to hear this.
