Ben Affleck (not sure on his wife though)

Matt Damon

Jennifer Lawrence

Queen Latifah

Keith Richards

Meredith Vieira

Magic Johnson

Kelly Osborne

Ann Curry (poor thing)

Megan Mullaly

Lisa Kudrow

Matt Perry

Jesus Christ. Love his wine and his men. Wasn't ashamed to let the world know this. Refreshing.

OP, it is not too late to go out into the world and make friends, you know.

Keith Richards and Ann Curry?

If you had listed Kathy Lee Gifford an Ann Curry, I might have thought you were serious.

How is someone who hides the fact that they're gay from the media "genuine"?

R4, We do many things to maintain our careers. Note the other thread when actors lie about their height (and weight.)

Angelina Jolie??? UM

by Anonymousreply 1205/04/2013

A few years ago when Ben Affleck was asked on camera by some entertainment show host about the emails that he used to send her to woo her, a story that Jennifer herself had told that host before, and as he was being told JG's story to the host, it was obvious that Ben had NO idea what the host was talking about. He stammered, seemingly thinking that the host was going to tell him he'd been joking (but he wasn't), so then Ben said flat out that the story had never happened and that it sounded like Jennifer decided to make it up either because she couldn't think of anything else to say or for shits and giggles.

Then of course, JG keeps saying publicly that it's Ben who wants her to have more kids - who really believes that? - and that she is SO done having kids, does NOT want another one and can't wait to go back to work. But now she looks pregnant again, and she wouldn't be if she wasn't the one wanting it.

R17 Really to your number one?

by Anonymousreply 1905/04/2013

yeah, I should have mentioned Dolly!

She gives $500 to any high school graduate of Sevier-poor as shit- County, TN... Not to mention Dollywood, which employs thousands in Sevier county.

She also mails free books to young TN children. My little Knoxville niece has received many of them.

by Anonymousreply 2005/04/2013

Yup, R71. She says the things other people are thinking. It's cost her, too. Gotta love someone like that.

by Anonymousreply 2105/04/2013

How about a preview, R21? What exactly is R71 going to say?

by Anonymousreply 2205/04/2013

Something quite unkind about Jackee Harry that I suspect is coming from a misplaced sense of loyalty to Marla Gibbs, R22. Nevertheless I thought it best to nip it in the bud.

by Anonymousreply 2305/04/2013

Gwyneth Paltrow. She may be annoying as hell, but it's genuinely annoying!

by Anonymousreply 2405/04/2013

GOOP is genuine but that is the problem.

Um, Barr is fucking NUTS.

Holly Hunter's genuine. Have a friend who worked with her. She is sweet, smart and down to earth.

by Anonymousreply 2805/04/2013

I lived down the road when Holly Hunter was renting a house on Wonderview Drive in the Lake Hollywood area. She would wander up and down the street with a sheer top on, exposing her tits while carrying a bottle of Ravinswood Zin, always Ravinswood. ..."hey do you want to hang out & party?" ...couldn't get over her exposed tits and was creeped out. She was there for about 6 months, then moved on.

i see a lot of genuine assholes on these lists.

That is an awesome story, R29. Did any neighbors ever take her up on her offer?

Josh Groban. Saw him in concert last week and his interaction with the audience seemed warm and genuine, especially with the seeing eye dog in the audience! A brillant performer and a nice guy.

Patti LuPone (yes, I know she's a raging bitch from hell, but she comes across that way in her interviews too, so at least she doesn't seem like a phony).

There is nothing genuine about Ben Affleck - he is the usual untalented HW douche! Yuck

by Anonymousreply 4305/05/2013




Dear Lord, OP, I don't know how you didn't include Reese Witherspoon on your list.

by Anonymousreply 4405/05/2013

Cynthia Nixon seems very down to earth. Lives with her wife and raises their kids in nyc. Kids go to public school. Hated her for the first 2 seasons of SATC then she ended up becoming my favorite character/actress. Go figure.

by Anonymousreply 4505/05/2013

I'm with r43 Affleck is a very calculated douche bag. On Gigli he rentlessly pursued J Lo. When ever her husband Chris would be out of LA (he traveled on and off during production) you'd know it by the way Ben acted toward Jennifer. Hugging up on her, pulling her into his lap etc. Taking a full page ad out in the Hollywood Reporter telling the world how great and professional J Lo was and what an amazing experience he was having working with her.

He wanted that relationship and the publicity that went along with it. She is such a lame talentless asshole.

by Anonymousreply 4605/05/2013

I meant HE is such a lame talentless asshole. But I suppose you can lump Jenny from the block in there too.

by Anonymousreply 4705/05/2013

For some reason Matt Damon irritates the hell out of me.

by Anonymousreply 4805/05/2013

Tell me more about the set Gigli- was JLo nice to crew? Did it even seem that Affleck was smart? Did Jlo and Ben have a great rapport?

R44, Why did you list Clooney first, and with a question mark? Is it because of his phony associations with "beards-R-us?"

Ben Affleck is an anti-Canadian lying turd.
