The Director’s Cut

director 7[Blind Gossip] While casting one of lead roles in one of the biggest movies of all time, this very famous Director asked some of the actresses to service him orally.

Some refused. Some complied. He taped the encounters of those who complied. One of those who did comply was eventually chosen as the lead. The Director got a kick out of showing the tape to other men in Hollywood.

Several years later, Our Actress got married to another celebrity. The Director invited the Husband over one day under the pretense of showing him “the director’s cut” of one of his films. Instead, he showed him the video of his wife, The Actress, servicing the Director!

The Husband was furious! However, instead of going to war with the Director, he blamed the Actress. They divorced soon afterward. If you have ever wondered why their marriage only lasted a short time, this is the reason why.

    Oh the shallowness of Hollywood. This director and all those of a similar ilk have so much to answer for. I hope she gets powerful enough to totally destroy him and his kind. It probably won’t be in this generation but soon. The power differential is due to swing the other way and I for one want to see it.

    Film: Titanic

    She married Mendes years after Titanic and is himself a director. It’s never the director’s fault too apparently. When are they going to make this sort of thing a crime in Hollywood.

    • Visha

      This 100% no wonder she HATES James Cameron and has sworn never to work with him. He is a grade A tool and his behaviour is vile.

    • ppfxxx

      They met in 2001 married in 2003 separated in 2010 and divorced in 2011. That counts as a golden wedding anniversary in Hollywood years

    Film: Chicago

    Probably way off but she just seems like she could be the type and the marriage lasted less than a year. Not sure how famous of a director Marshall would be considered?

  • hbeach

    Lots of possibilities: Kate Winslet blowing James Cameron, later married Sam Mendes; Carrie Fisher servicing George Lucas, married to Paul Simon; Renee Zellweger (not sure for which movie–Rob Marshall “Chicago” is gay), marriage to Kenny Chesney ended very quickly.

    • kspeedian

      I don’t think that anything Renee Zellweger has been in could count as “one of the biggest movies of all time,” lol I really like your other two guesses though. Im leaning towards Kate Winslet being the victim, James Cameron being the big creepy, jerk and the spoiled marriage was to, another jerk apparently, Sam Mendez (only together a handful of years, which is short for marriage I’d say)… Whoever it is, this is very sad.

  • TeacherKat

    No idea, but it makes me think of Titanic (2nd biggest movie after Avitar).

    Titanic
    James C.
    Kate W.
    Either her first or second husband. Maybe Sam M.? They married in 2001 I think and Titanic was released in 1997? She married her first husband in 1998 which isn’t “a few years later”.

    The director is a huge d!ck though.

  • penny1015

    My first thought was James Cameron/Kate Winslet…but she was married to Sam Mendes for several years so that doesn’t work.

    Anyway, the director is an asshole for using his powerful position to coerce (possibly financially struggling) actresses into sexual favors in exchange for a role. And her husband ain’t much better. Seriously, he’s gonna divorce her because several years ago she was pressured into giving someone a BJ?

  • FreddyCellophane

    • KristenDean

      I don’t think a Lucas/Fisher guess makes sense due to the fact that nobody expected much from the original Star Wars. I don’t think she would have wanted that particular role enough to give him a bj.

    If this isnt correct, whoever the director is should lose his penis ala Lorena Bobbitt. What a scumbag.

    • katt388

      Good guess. Crowe’s marriage to one of the sisters in Heart broke up about that time

      • jodie99

        Actually, Crowe’s marriage to Nancy Wilson of broke up just a few years ago. The timing is not at all right for this guess.

        Plus, I don’t think Renee Zellweger is at all the kind of actress who got ahead by giving head, and her marriage to Chesney was most likely because he’s gay.

        Wrong on all accounts, i think.

      • gotsomemoxie

        I agree with jodie. Kenny C. is gay, & would lose most of his fan base if he came out. And THAT was the “fraud” in the marriage annulment.

    • tellmemore

      But didn’t Renee file for their annulment? And she used “fraud” as the reason. I could see it being them if HE had file that….

    • jodie99

      Why would Carrie Fisher have to give head to get ahead? Her Mom is Debbie Reynolds and her Dad was Eddie Fischer. By all accounts, she was offered the role in Star Wars, she didn’t go after it.

      And she was, by her own, well-documented admission, on drugs during her marriage to Paul Simon.

      Haven’t you read any of her books?

      I actually think Karen Allen was the actress who refused the BJ in the first blind, and her career just sort of died. I read an online bio, and it even mentioned how strange it was that she went from a blockbuster hit to doing only obscure and/or small indie film roles.

      I meant James Cameron.

      But now that I’m thinking about it, Jim Threapleton isn’t much of a celebrity…

  • MikeInSanJose

    Titanic (1997)…

    James Cameron
    Kate Winslet
    Married to Jim Threapleton 1998-2001

    • MikeInSanJose

      Qualifying this:

      “Several years later, Our Actress got married to another celebrity.”

      Titanic was releaased in 97 and Kate married the following year, but Titanic began casting sometime around 1995(?) so the blowjob incident would have been years earlier.

      BTW – Threapleton is a British director.

      • captain

        He is a director now. At the time they got married he was a second assistant director – hardly a celebrity.

  • Junior Mint

    Film: Titanic

    Director: James Cameron (someone really sadistic had to do this — and I just learned he nearly suffocated Ed Harris during the making of the abyss, for greater “realism” in the shot!)

    Actress: Kate Winslet

    Her Husband: Sam Mendes

    The clues seem to fit, including it being a “director’s cut” of the film, but Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet were married 7 years. Is that a short time?

    My other guess was Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett for the couple, and Pretty Woman the movie, but I just can’t imagine Garry Marshall doing that…

  • mr.f

    Yeesh.

    Director: Jim Cameron

    Actress: Kate Winslet

    Her Husband: Sam Mendes

    • mr.f

      Married 6+ years, separated in March of 2010. Avatar premiered December 2009 and the couple split in March 2010, so if Cameron invited Mendes over under false pretenses to watch a special director’s cut it would have been sometime between Jan-March 2010. The timeline makes sense.

      • rayodeplata

        This piece of info sells it for me; I didn’t think that 6 years were a “short marriage” for Hollywood standards but the Avatar release fits perfectly.

  • Ma23

    “The Director got a kick…” Spielberg is making a film version of ‘The Grapes of Wrath'(Takes place on Route 66)”Get your kicks…”

    “…instead of going to war…” War of the Worlds & War Horse

    I’m pretty sure the director is Steven Spielberg but I’m not sure of the rest. Maybe Whoopi Goldberg in “The Color Purple” with the husband being, sort of actor, Lyle Trachtenberg. They were married for a year.

    Whomever this is, I wish she would have complied then proceeded to re-enact a scene from JAWS.

    • MaryRead

      I agree with you. All the clues point to Spielberg (although war made me think “Saving Private Ryan”) and I thought him/Dee Wallace/Kate Capshaw were the best guesses for the related post.

      …but I can’t get farther than that. Maybe it’s something Spielberg didn’t direct but had another role in (like producer) and still had feedback on casting–?

      • mugofmead111

        Spielberg took Kate Capshaw off the market. (If she is one of the oral servicers, she must have done a really good job!) They’re still married as far as I know though.

    – Paul Simon and Carrie Fisher dated for several years but were married for less than a year
    -Ace capitalized the O in “Our” which could possibly refer to her character name of Princess Leia Organa

      One major film ScarJo starred in was Avenges (No. 3 of most successful films of all time), but this doesn’t match the timeline, as the film was released in 2012, but they divorced in 2011 and the item says, they got married several years after the film.

  • GoesInCircles

    I don’t think it’s Zellweger/Chesney coz she divorced him and cited “fraud” for the reason.

    Going with Lucas, Fisher, and Simon

    With Paul Simon’s history I can see him blaming the woman.

  • CanaryCry

    Interesting if this is about Winslet & Cameron. Cameron is supposed to be one of biggest male chauvinists around. I also wonder how/why his current missus Suzy Amis got so skeletal – life with him must be peachy, indeed.

    I like Kate’s movies, & she’s certainly grown in her looks & style. However, I wonder about her self esteem history, with the weight problem she had as a child, as well as the circumstances of her first pregnancy & childbirth. She seems to be the type to be in love with love, which goes with such problems as picking the wrong men & just being needy.

  • Angeryblonde

    Kate Winslet/ James Cameron / Titanic

    And going back to the old blind, Gabrielle Anwar was the actress who refused. She had the part & later turned it down because she “Didn’t like the script”

  • austen93

    This just made me feel really sad and cynical. What horrible guys! Nothing would be worth giving some guy a blow job for me, but I guess there are people who are desperate for roles or money. No one should ever be pressured like that. Disgusting.

    My first thought was that it was James Cameron and Kate Winslet for Titanic but after seeing other guesses I will say:

    Steven Spielberg and one of his big movies like Star Wars (this was a big before my time so I don’t know much about the actors)

    Just a guess, though I can’t find any of the clue in the blind that match.

    Film: Vertigo
    Director: Hitchock
    Actress: Kim Novak
    Husband: Richard Johnson

    Hitchock was a letch. So it wouldn’t surprise me.

    I like the Kidman Cruise guess, tho it doesn’t fit in terms of a short relationship. It would explain though why it was an out of the blue divorce.

  • popculturenut

    Because of the link to the other blind, I’m going to go with:
    Director: George Lucas
    Film: Star Wars
    Actress: Carrie Fisher
    Husband: Paul Simon

    as for the link to the other blind, Cindy Williams obviously stayed on her feet instead of going to her knees.
    She was in Lucas’ American Graffiti, and according to her Wiki page she auditioned for Star Wars but lost the Princess Leia gig to Carrie Fisher (now we know how). Carrie Fisher’s subsequent marriage to Paul Simon lasted only a year. Also, Williams def fits “working actress but not a big star” from the other blind. Her biggest success was on TV as Shirley of “Laverne and Shirley.”

    Between the two blinds, this is the scenario that fits the best. Though I originally thought James Cameron was the obvious director here. Guess way more of them are DI*KS than we know (and not in the good way).

    Director: Peter Jackson

  • Mumumumu

    Film: Star Wars
    Director: George Lucas
    Actress: Carrie Fisher

    Don’t think is James Cameron/Kate Winslet, because of this: “Several years later, Our Actress got married to another celebrity” – Titanic came out in 1997 and she got married next year to Jim Threapleton, and he’s not a celebrity.

    Could this be it?

    James Cameron picked Alba from a pool of 1,200 candidates for the role…she was a nobody before that!
