Yacht Rent

yacht 4[Blind Gossip] If you are a female who has passed your peak in the acting profession, there is always the world’s oldest profession to help you pay your bills.

If you were at the Cannes film festival without a film to promote, and you spent all your time partying on a boat, chances are you that you were getting paid to party. They call it “yacht rent.”

Name three actresses at Cannes who were there to make “yacht rent.”

Bonus points if you can name an actor who was also there to make “yacht rent.” Yes, boys do it too!

  1. slantrhyme says

    Lindsay Lohan
    Mischa Barton
    Tara Reid

    Actor: I’d have to think about this…the three ladies are a no-brainer

      • mugofmead111 says

        Giovanni Ribisi is in Seth MacFarlane’s new film. I hope with that paycheck, he wouldn’t have to resort to this…now.

      • LALOVER says

        Giovanni Ribisi is a Coppola. I don’t think he’s hurting for a paycheck.

      • cassadaga says

        Where does the idea that Ribisi is a Coppola come from? Says absolutely nothing about that on his Wikipedia page.

    • redstilettos says

      I’d throw in Sharon Stone too. Was she at Cannes? Or Kristen Stewart for a younger ‘actress.’

    • 65jaguar says

      I don’t think Mischa fits the description. She has quite a number of projects listed on IMDB. Mostly “B Movies”, but enough of them to probably do okay financially, without needing to rent herself out. I kind of like her. She stays out of trouble, for the most part. As for FireCrotch and Reid hoeing, definitely on the former and probably on the latter.

  2. kookywooky says

    Actress 1: Sharon Stone

    Actress 2: Lindsay Lohan

    Actress 3: Has-beena

    Actor 1: Has-Ben

  3. Miss Demeanor says

    I’ll just throw a few out there:
    Tara Reid
    Lindsay Lohan
    Pam Anderson
    Julianne Hough
    Kellen Lutz

  4. tink says

    Sharon Stone, Rosario Dawson, and Dita Von Teese. Actor: John Travolta.
    (Bonus: I bet Rita Ora and Lindsay Lohan also do it.)

    • GossipProblem says

      Sharon Stone was there for some promotion I can’t remember but she definitely had a reason to be there. John Travolta was there for the Pulp Fiction 20 year celebration that was a part of the closing ceremony. So while these 2 would definitely be my guess, I don’t think they apply with the hints given.

    • GossipProblem says

      something tells me the guy was Leo. I know he isn’t passed his prime, but he was there with no film to promote…

  5. tuckerlee123 says

    Actress 1: Sharon Stone

    Actress 2: Tara Reid

    Actress 3: Pamela Anderson

    Actor 1: Adrian Brody or Adrian Grenier

    • felipepinafi says

      Adrian Grenier is producing a documentary.
      Brody maybe?But who gonna pay for this?lol

      • PandoraWolf says

        Is it bad to wonder if I could afford this? I love him; something so sexy about him!

    • BlueHerons says

      Sharon Stone and Pam Anderson are both really wealthy on their own. While I wouldn’t put it past either, neither needs the money.

  6. callmedave says

    Pamela Anderson and Sharon Stone were there… For the third, maybe Heidi Klum?

    And for the boy… Kellan Lutz perhaps?

  7. allytcat says

    My guesses!

    Actress 1: Sharon Stone

    Actress 2:Pamela Anderson

    Actress 3: Lindsay Lohan

    Actor 1:Keanu Reeves

    • stolidog says

      These were my 3 guesses for the women. I’ll say Adam Brody for the man though.

      • redstilettos says

        Adam Brody just married Leighton Meester though. I don’t see her being cool with this.

    • prissy says

      Not eva, even though she has not done any recent films she is making money behind the scenes as executive producer of the hit show that is in its 2nd season Devious Maids. And I believe she gets spousal support from her ex tony parker.

      • prissy says

        And how can I forget her restaurant Beso in LA which I visited on my bday a few years ago, unfortunately did not see her their.

      • stolidog says

        just because you have money coming in doesn’t mean you don’t have more money going out. Bills gotta get paid somehow….

  8. CoCoJoe says

    1) Lindsay
    2) Pammie
    3) ?
    4) ?
    I thought Pam had turned over a new leaf until I saw that pic of her with her extensions in again. I can’t think of another good reason why she’d resurrect THAT look.

  9. ravenglass says

    Actress 1: Lindsay Lohan

    Actress 2: Pamela Anderson

    Actress 3: Sharon Stone

    Actor 1: John Travolta & his weird beard. His facial hair looked weird too.

  10. Ahem says

    Actress 1: Sharon Stone
    Actress 2: Lindsay Lohan
    Actress 3: ?
    Actor 1: Adrien Brody?

  11. Syl says

    Eva Longoria , Sharon Stone and is Kirsten Dunst past her peak as an actress?? For the past it men actors I would say Adrien Brody but what woman ( or man) would pay for that???

  12. LeahLynn28 says

    I can’t name the three,but one of them has to be Lindsay Lohan.She was in Cannes partying,was caught almost naked in a photo with a man,had no movie to promote and is currently unemployed…needs to pay her bills.I knew she was being paid to be a escort,but accepting money to be a prostitute,is very lame.
    These four are pathetic…they should get real jobs,if their careers are over.

    • KatarinaJ says

      Your post is hilarious. REAL JOBS? What would Lindsay do? Instead of getting paid thousands of bucks to be seen in cool clothes and mingling, being a professional whatever, she’d work at Starbucks? Who’d hire where with what resume? What else is she ‘qualified’ to do exactly? Of course actors gone astray are going to ‘make money on appearances’ because it just means show up somewhere and be social for a paycheck. What American wouldn’t LOVE that ridiculous easy gig as a job? Sure prostitution is another story but this yachting this well, still better than nothing, and they got to be at Cannes after all! I’d say if it were me, I’d try to re-invent myself in the industry with seeking scripts, producing, etc, learn an adjacent trade, but for someone ‘used to attention’ and adoration, who was once hot and admired, and perhaps built their ego and world view based on it, this is kinda the only way to go (for many.)

    • PinkSlip says

      As much as I think Hilton is a skank who looks like she would be wandering dirty street corners if it wasnt for her wealthy birth, she has reinvented herself as a successful DJ, so I hardly think she’s hookin’ for cash….!

      Laughing at the Justin guess though :)))

  13. Vagabondage says

    Actress1: Sharon Stone
    Actress 2: Alessandra Ambrosio
    Actress 3: Paris Hilton
    Actor 1: John Travolta

  14. BlueHerons says

    Tara Reid
    Lindsey Lohan

    That’s all I got.

    I’ve heard for years Tara turns tricks in the Med. Isn’t she over 40 now?

  15. sidhu105 says

    Actress 1: Pamela Anderson

    Actress 2: Sharon Stone

    Actress 3: Lindsay Lohan

    Actor 1: Adrien Brody? Probably not but can’t think of any other random men at Cannes.

  16. GayleStorm says

    I’ll go for a few guesses on this. Although, I’m not sure if the qualification for this is to be young-old, old-old, or “Hollywood old”. So my guesses may be all over the map…

    Actress 1: Lindsay Lohan

    Actress 2: Sharon Stone

    Actress 3: Cameron Diaz

    Actor 1: John Travolta (in search of a massage)

    • mugofmead111 says

      The line “If you are a female who has passed your peak in the acting profession” makes me think if one is past one’s peak, it’s not necessarily due to one’s age. I think many will agree that Lindsay Lohan peaked with _Mean Girls_, which was 10 years ago, even though she’s not really “old” by Hollywood standards. (Her castmate Amanda Seyfried is about the same age and she is still getting roles.)

      And yes, I definitely think Lindsay is one of the subjects of this blind.

  17. sabrina325 says

    Actresses: Eva Longoria, Michelle Rodriguez, Pamela Anderson?

    Actor 1: John Travolta

  20. niri2014 says

    Dita Von whatshername and Sharon Stone both attended the Roberto Cavalli party. As did Adrian Grenier.

  21. PinkPetals says

    Not too sure exactly but Sharon Stone, Lindsay Lohan and Eva Longoria were papped a lot in Cannes.

    No idea re the Actor.

  22. cookoo says

    Lindsay Lohan
    Sharon stone
    and not sure but could be Kirsten dunst

  23. Bromance1979 says

    I don’t know if you can call her an actress, but Paris Hilton was there and there have been rumours about her.

    Lindsay Lohan was there, too, so obviously she’s one of the three.

  24. ToniAcca says

    Actress 1: Eva Longoria.

    Actress 2: Sharon Stone.

    Actress 3: Can’t guess …

    Actor 1: Can’t guess …

  29. PoniTayl says

    Actress 1: Lilo

    Actress 2: Tara Reid

    Actress 3: Eva Longoria

    Actor 1: Adrien Brody

    • PinkSlip says

      Eva has never been anything but a lady; she’s hardly past her prime, she just doesn’t seem interested in working much, and spends more time with her restaurants than anything. Someone who’s desperate for work would be paparazzi chasing….she’s not. She’s been producing Devious Maids, now in its second season, and seemed to not be so interested in chasing acting work since Desperate Housewives finished. IOW, she’s a professional, her career is in the industry, and I’ve never seen her as so low-rent as to hook herself on yachts. Please….

      As for Adrian Brody…past his prime?? He’s into documentaries, he’s also a professional, and nor is he a paparazzi chasing wannabe.

  30. morgannicolesmith says

    Lindsay Lohan is one of them deffo.she got arrested near cannes in 2010/2011 and bc its a blind item,it can be from anytime.+ on her docuseries she broke down bc she couldn’t go to cannes bc she was having to buy an apartment
    pamela anderson,tara reid,eva longoria,mischa barton,paris hilton (she counts) idk for the male

    • PandoraWolf says

      Was her mom there? Maybe she’s #2. She ‘acts’ like she gives a crap about her kids.

  31. littleOP says

    I’m coming to the party late, my best guess is –

    Actress 1: Sharon Stone – no film of hers showed but lots of parties

    Actress 2: Eva Longoria – went to the premiere of foxcatcher and Saint Laurent but is not in them.

    Actress 3: Pamela Anderson – ‘she sort of acted if you think baywatch was acting’

    Actor 1: Adrien Brody

    • littleOP says

      Looking at everyone else’s lists I think it was definitely more then 3 actresses, but it is also an industry event so it is hard to gauge who is networking for their next gig versus yacht rent thingy.

  32. hockeymomma5 says

    So, I may be a little naive here…but is it assumed that ‘the dirty deed’ was being paid for here? Or just being paid to show up and mingle?
    I have no clue, except the obvious lohan (but who would willingly want to touch that, let alone pay for it?)
    If one of these is Adrian Brody – oh how far the oscar winners fall- and that makes me sad :(

  33. Witch Baby says

    I want to throw out Benicio del Toro for the actor, he was at Cannes and I’m not sure if he was promoting anything, but he definitely was at a yacht party.
    As for the actresses, so many were there so I don’t have any solid guesses. Also, Barbara Palvin was partying on a yacht..

  34. mar1ey says

    So many guesses for Sharon Stone. She is The Global Fundraising Chairman for amFAR and has helped raise millions of dollars for AIDS research. She attends the festival every year as an auctioneer for the event, and the crowds go crazy for her. I don’t know what she does in her spare time, but she is helping to raise money and awarness for a deadly killer and has been since 1995. More than I can say for Lohan.

    • Simpatico says

      Ditto this. I just saw Sharon last month at my nail salon here in West Hollywood; she and her sister, Kelly, got out of Sharon’s brand new Bentley, definitely not hurting and looking fab. With that said, I’m going with (cannot limit it to just three actresses)
      Eva Longoria

      Kellan was there to plug a film. I’m going with Adam Brody, since he ex, Rachel Bilson, is a “for hire” kind of girl. 😉

    • Tofer says

      Agreed. Mark off Travolta also. I don’t think we are talking about celebs worth upwards of 100 million dollars. I highly doubt they would be bothered with the at most 25k they would make for a yacht party appearance.

  35. Bamadex says

    I knew LiLo would be the main guess. Correct, no doubt.

    I thought of Lutz, too, given his reviews and career post-Twatlight. I don’t have anyone else male, off the bat. Brody is reputedly hung 《comme un taureau》as they say in Cannes. But I can’t see him being that desperate. Same for Grenier.

  36. Bamadex says

    Longoria is presumably making some money from producing and directing Devious Maids. I can see Stone doing this, perhaps. She’s still hot.

    As others have pointed out, no one would pay Travolta, even for sentimental reasons. Was Tara Reid there? I thought she was filming Sharknado 6 or whatever.

  37. La Llorona says

    Holy crap, I’m stunned that no one has said Grace Kelly yet. She was always rumored to be one of the original Yacht Girls. I dunno how true that is, mind you, but I’ve heard it so many times before.

    I’ll put down Sharon Stone for one of the Yacht Girls, (I’ve seen the photos that, ahem, prove she may be one), Lindsay for the second, and I guess the last guess will also go to Hayden Panettiere, because I’ve definitely seen the photos of her in a bikini on a Yacht. I dunno, maybe Ace has someone else in mind for that last answer? Perhaps. I’ll go with Matthew McConaughey for the guy.

  38. Mystical says

    I think Leo D. is for sure one of the “boys” being referenced, only because Lainey discussed him being there for absolutely no other reason than to party. She was really emphatic on this point and talked about him being at the same parties that Bieber and Paris were at, and that he is starting to become more of a C-lister because of these kinds of poor choices. I would not think that he needs the money, but it may not necessarily be about that, as he seems to partake of this lifestyle no matter where he’s at. It certainly does make him appear a bit of a sad sap to be doing this at this point in his life.
