Before this thread gets paywalled, I’ll share: a friend of a friend said they waited on BB and his family at a restaurant at Christmastime in 2019. It was apparently him, his parents, brother, and a woman who seemed to be dating the brother. Said they were mostly pleasant, Barnes was “maybe a little condescending” making sure they got everyone’s drink orders correctly, but not enough to be all that notable. At the end of the meal, he paid for everyone... but didn’t leave a tip. That’s all the info I got!

^and I should clarify the restaurant was in London.

by Anonymousreply 404/09/2021

Going back to a post on the last thread about him liking BBG’s fanart, he’s also viewed BBA & WLBB stories in the past couple of days. This is him stoking up for the S&B launch for sure. He knows he’s gonna have to get interactive again soon (no choice) so may as well start off with the old & loyal ones, seeing as how he’s more or less ghosted them for a couple of months.

Also found it hilarious that the Wanda IG account posted a whole mosaic of the ice cream dumpster fire pic and tagged the Ho and her two companies.

The Sleuth found it and noted that she untagged herself pretty quick but didn’t block them. Then the wine co blocked her. But still not the Ho. That’s illogical behaviour right there.

And to another of the later posters on the last thread, I’m bored of the Ho too! She makes me nauseous and I’m praying for the day that we can move on and leave her behind in the dust.

R3 No tip??!! With all that money he’s got.... what a tightwad!!!!

by Anonymousreply 604/09/2021

R3 Yeah, I’m not sure if he was unhappy with the service or what, but it was odd to me since Barnes has always struck me as a people-pleaser. Though that friend of my friend said he’s definitely not the worst among the celebrities they’ve served, so take that as you will.

by Anonymousreply 704/09/2021

A quick note for the sleuth. . . The other woman whose posts Ben always liked that you referenced is also *believed* to be an ex of his (though we can't be sure, it was a long time ago). There were old pictures of them sitting together with arms around each other that OF COURSE have mysteriously disappeared from IG now. (WHY DO ALL HIS EXES REMOVE THE EVIDENCE LATELY WHEN IT HAD BEEN UP FOR YEARS) But he stays friends with his exes and continues to like their posts all the time, hence your observation.

Funny thing is, he usually stops/dramatically reduces liking exes' posts when he's currently dating someone (at least from his private account, it was always a dead giveaway). When his "current" relationship ends, he goes back to liking exes' posts. And unfortunately with this woman, her last post was the same time Ben and The HoughMonster probably "officially" started things up. So we can't use her liked/unliked posts as a potential clue to the current status of The Dumpster Fire. *grumble*

The head-bobbing video?

by Anonymousreply 904/09/2021

Hmmm what to make of this. . . As noted in the previous thread, Ben was spending an inordinate amount of time continually liking things on socials after his late rise today. And then he stopped. Because he ran out of things to like?

The Ho had all her panels and interviews and found time to post continually throughout the day. And then she stopped. Because she ran out of content?

I know what you're thinking, did they stop at the same time? Yes. Yes they did, to within the hour. Coincidence? Or did Ben like her post today to beg? Was he so lonely and bored and desperate all day cause she was busy and away from him all day? But then she came home from work, and the faithful housewife sprung into action, and devoted all his time to her for the rest of the day and night. He paid enough contractually obligated lip service to fans earlier.

He needs to take care of his hardworking mommy after all. Grifting is exhausting.

R6 It's always been my understanding that tipping isn't expected in the UK or Europe as they pay servers a living wage.

R10 I think you give JH too much power. You are taking away Ben's agency, as they say these days.

10:00 AM Arise

10:05AM Snipe at RK for not tidying up

10:30AM Head out for run/tennis

11:30AM Return home, shower, drink a protein shake. No time to make pancakes with a long day of social media drudgery ahead, alas!

12:00PM Begin SM “work.” Bloody Cindy won’t stop pestering about her art; throw her a bone and shut her up. Scroll through #daddy tags, are any of these girls hot? Etc etc.

Later that afternoon….

Meet JH for mutually agreed-upon booty call. Hope she doesn’t ask to sample any “wine” afterward…perhaps I’ll tell her I’m doing a cleanse.

by Anonymousreply 1104/10/2021

R11 That's what I believed too re: tipping. It's a solely american thing because minimum wage here (for tipped, think restaurant, workers) is $2.75/hr. They're not making the still abysmal $7.25/hr (or whatever their state requires), so they literally need tips to make any money from their day. I always *thought* they had a more proper min wage over there, so tips weren't literally required. Perhaps that's changed recently? Did UK/Europe grow their own Other NRA (National Restaurant Association)? Cause american hegemony really needs to STOP.

And I think my favorite part of your hilarious description is he was actually awake and waited to like her post. He's filmed himself running, definitely takes his phone with him! Notifications, schmotifications. (of course now I'm imagining Ben I don't do confrontations Barnes ever having agency. I take it back, THAT'S the most hilarious part of your description!!!)

*Answer for the sleuth* This lady was waaaayyy before Peyton. It was a long time ago.

So one turns of Jake Paul that scum bag millionaire youtuber has been accused of raping a girl and then making her sign an NDA. He is what some might consider B level celebrity. So maybe that tip from the last thread is about this garbage human. There are so many in Hollywood now, hard to keep track. Maybe he is making girls sign NDAs for flirting because he is disgusting and also apparently hangs out with 14 year olds. Why are all influencers criminals and garbage humans? What is that about?

Two I’m so tired of talking about JH. She clearly has a mental illness, no tea no shade. I do feel like it is untreated and she needs help. I really hope Ben saw the light and bounced from that mess, but also we know how easily manipulated he is. I do feel like he likes her shit because he knows we are watching and talking about it. Anything to gain traction and boost his followers and make S&B popular. Like really let’s see at the end of April if anyone cares about this show or him as he is still unemployed. They will probably announce the second season soon and then like ok who cares.

Three I know I just said I hate talking about her, but I do find this interesting how Nina and her seem to be so distance as of late. I’ll entertain the cracks in the fake facade she wears. I really think something went down. If it did than that would make this bond between BB and JH even stronger, us against the world. Napa was suppose to happen around this time and nothing. JH takes credit as the founder and has been pushing Kinrgy way more than her wine. Also sus in the week of love how little JH played that up. Just a couple stories, but didn’t really do her usual ten million stories dance in my underwear then talk about the same thing again in my car, then again in glam, then again while I’m eating a salad, then again the next morning after I just woke up. Sus for sure.

R14 No, not her. If I remember that pic correctly, Ben was friends with the guy (Huw was it??) and just met those two girls that day as they are the guy's costars from some viking show.

R16 You mean girl with dog who caused Ben to have a SUPER straight recoiling blushing reaction to whatever she said? That brief meet up?

R17 Wait, what party? Who?

R15 yeah we are not super fans over here. To blindly follow, not see the truth, not the vibes over here.

R17 BB has been old in Hollywood for such a long time. Red cups he should be running from that. He is a grown ass man. I saw a meme that was like you should move to Hollywood if you are cool with guys in their 40’s doing cocaine with 20 year olds. The closer BB gets to 40 this is all I can picture. Him, all wrinkly and shit, doing blow with the kids, trying to be cool. Talking about that Narnia movie and trying to hype himself up over shit no one cares about.

Hahahaha Syl totally! Yeah it’s the hug for me, why are his legs so far apart? Then she was never seen again, what happened BB? She looks basic just like the rest. Even the model, like she cannot sing and she is not beautiful. I don’t get it. Same with JH. Maybe this one with the dog is his therapist. I see on the rhobh how they all go on walks with their therapists. That seems like a very LA thing to do.

JH last post about wine was 2 weeks ago, Nina is on FVW stories in merch from the company. Where is JH in her beanie? JH gets her lips done and the fake hair for the wine, Nina makes fun of it, BB unfollows Nina and her beau, and then JH barely mentions their company. Nine post a throwback family post, JH does the same in her stories. Her behavior once again makes no sense. How does BB keep up.

R7 R11 Tips in UK restaurants are either added to the bill before you get it, or left to your discretion. The servers *do* expect a tip, between 10-15% (12.5% or 15% for larger groups). So if the tip was already included, Ben would’ve had to deduct it from the total. More likely it wasn’t added, and he just didn’t leave one - the meanie!!!

by Anonymousreply 2904/10/2021

R20 R22 I’m sure this was discussed in a previous thread, and someone ID’d her as an actress from Ben’s ‘circle’. Also that she was either married/engaged/attached at the time. I’ll see if I can dig it out.

R30 Following on from my post above, I’d like to announce that my brain has not entirely fried during quarantine. From Thread X.

Quote: “That looks a full body press hug, not entirely platonic. But she looks back at him and he doesn’t look back at her. She does have an adorable dog. Keep your heart pinned on the dog, hon”

Quote: “ Apparently BB’s friend might be the actress Lily Robinson.”

Quote: “Following up on my own post: I decided to IG stalk Lily. She accepted my follow request and I got the impression that she doesn't know Ben very well, or maybe just met him. She follows his Public account but not the private one, he doesn't follow her at all. She also appears to have a boyfriend who is an author. So, yet another of Ben's British Hag Squad. Move along.”

BTW I still find it hilarious that Thread X lasted from Mar 2019 until Jan 2021. Then XI - XIV just from end Jan till now!!!

R24 Ha, check out the final photo from that gallery - linked below. He was fully aware of the camera. And that’s a smug little smirk right there.... “This’ll get in the gossip mags, surely”

R25 Two theories about that strange wide-leg stance:

1. Totally aware of paps, over-exaggerated on purpose. I think the girl’s looking back at him in astonishment rather than longing. As in ‘I barely know that guy, wtf was that all about?” She’s also talking to someone else once she’s walked away from him.

2. Her hand with the dog leash is trapped in between them. Is he adopting a Trumpesque ‘leaning forwards with shoulders’ stance?

So, no frottage going on by the looks of it!!!

Quite enjoying talking about this again as so had enough of the Ho.

And just think. . . we ENTIRELY have Ms. Julianne Hough to thank for it. Just realize how much of Ben's SUPER PRECIOUS private life has finally come out for us to discuss. Think of all the trolling the bunkered chickenshit has finally endured because of it. Think of the reduction in public support from EVERYONE except overstimulated hormonal teenagers.

All because he inexplicably decided to hook up with that grifting garbage human. Congratulations Ben. She clearly was the best decision you've ever made in your life. Cheers.

by Anonymousreply 3804/10/2021

Question. Can you feel pain without suffering? Or is the point of going through pain at all to learn *From*. The. Suffering. If you don't suffer, how do you learn the hard lessons? What would ever cause the new wisdom to form unless suffering brought it forth? How are they not inextricably linked through causality? How would we even define pain without including (in *any* way) suffering? And perhaps MOST important.. if you immediately choose NOT to suffer, why would ANYONE ***EVER*** believe you've learned ANYTHING.

Or is this NOTHING more than her usual self-help guru bullshit about taking back your power and protecting your divine energy In Order To NEVER have to suffer in life? Suffering is for the disposable lesser people, not for an enlightened higher being like herself.

Ben repeatedly claims he's a fan of words and loves always specifically choosing the *exact* correct one. Maybe that's why it took him 35 whole minutes to like her post this time. But let's digest the possible hidden messages anyway. I mean even though she knows it sounds bad, she wishes pain for everyone who reads it, and peace for herself. Who counts as everyone?

(btw, what the hell does that video she chose have to do with any of this? Or is she, as per usual, just finding any excuse to show off HOW SUPER SEXY she is!!! Ogle her everyone!! Absolutely pathetic attention whore.)

R38 Yes, sadly that’s the case. All down to her. While we all wanted more tea, I’d really have preferred it to be of the “who’s that he’s with in the pic” variety and we could then have all gone off and carried on sleuthing. Along with maybe some bona fide gossip about him. Some nude shots or dick pics surfacing. “Spotted at” etc etc etc.

Not this car crash of a scenario. Oh well, it is what it is.

R26 Definitely strange behaviour on her part. Going back to the ND/SW unfollow, I find it funny that we were banging on about how pathetic he was for following the 2 of them and then - bang, they’re gone! Still think either he or friend/s are lurking on here!

Napa doesn’t seem to be happening, or not at the moment anyway. If it does, we’ll be on your trail, Benji.

R39 What a steaming pile of BS. And of course the video’s chosen to let everyone see how good (fake) she looks. And oh, she’s @‘d Andy Grammer. Apparently he’s a singer (sorry, Andy, never heard of you.) Now, do we believe that the Ho found that song/lyrics? Or does that sound more like someone who googled the meaning of the song ‘Jealous’? Hmmm.

by Anonymousreply 4104/10/2021

R39 why does BB like this shit? Why is he encouraging this? This isn’t helping anyone. It’s clear the self obsession here. Watch his next song is a cover of one of Andy’s song just to fuck with everyone. He seems to like to do that. BB you are not smart, don’t fuck with your enemies.

We all just went through a year of pain, JH great job at being completely tone deaf once again. A global pandemic and hundreds of thousands dying, families not being able to say goodbye and grieve. That is enough pain. She needs to stop.

BB if you or people you know are reading this, you liked this bullshit, this is toxic af. She is living in her own reality. She is not helping you. BB you deserve the hate and so does she. Suffering is not a choice. You are both privileged, self obsessed, assholes. Really they need to fuck off!

BB gave two recent shoutouts to this singer - once on his story about the album (“I’m infatuated”) and then on a post by Vance about this song linked below. Liked and commented “I love this song.” He’s now following him. If you read the lyrics, I’m wondering if that’s because he sees the two protagonists as him ministering to the poor little Ho in all her ‘pain’.

R43 As you say, these two (particularly her) have no idea what pain others have gone through this year. She needs to shut the fuck up.

His selfishness in itself is cruel. I know someone he hurt and will never mention the details here it is not my story to tell, but he is not as good as he wants you to think. He has let people down and caused pain. Yeah JH I wish you pain. I really do. Maybe with it you will gain actual perspective.

R45 I was saying that he saw it as representing him being kind to The Ho, not to anyone else. Just to clarify. And thanks for dropping those crumbs without any details! Can’t you just give us the scenario without naming names, as R47 suggested? G’wan ;)

R46 The lyric was “I was ruined by man and this was never in my plans, I dreamed of men who loved me” - yes, this is a poor broken woman who needs saving, and BB possibly sees himself as JH’s saviour. (Leaving aside the fact that it was JH who usually ended up ruining the men).

We all know he likes to have meanings behind the songs he chooses, so I thought ‘BB as saviour of JH’ might be the motivation behind his “I love this song’. Maybe, maybe not. Just a thought.

R48 Orrrrrrr. . . perhaps this is a reference to a certain gay men's site that *used* to be full of guys who loved him, but have now dedicated their free time to making him feel as toxic as they can? I mean, *I* enjoy that interpretation ;)

R45 I fully respect the decision not to share, but still. Damn. Was it anyone we know, or (and pardon the phrase) was it a proverbial "nobody." I ask cause it would likely be the latter.

I am really curious as to how long this can last if they continue being so over the top serious about keeping it a secret. It just doesn’t seem healthy for a relationship to be ducking into another room at your significant other’s family get-togethers to avoid being seen on camera, or what have you (if that’s what’s happening). It’s a whole lot of fuss for no reason and while there may be an initial thrill to the secret-keeping, I can’t see that being fun in the long term.

by Anonymousreply 6004/11/2021

R60 You’re dead right. While Ben is an attention-whore (Leo/actor mix), the Ho out-whores him on that score every time. She’ll get fucked off with it sooner rather than later. And he sure as hell knows that he’s going to lose a ton of followers if he ever makes it official. The fangirls (those who know about this shitshow, I’m sure some of them don’t even now) will desert in their scores. For the moment, they’re living in an alternative universe where their Benny Boy wouldn’t *ever* get with anyone as awful as the Ho.

When they can’t avoid the truth - boom! They’ll be gone in a heartbeat.

And I also wouldn’t like to be JH in the aftermath of that.

by Anonymousreply 6104/11/2021

So, interesting intel from a friend of mine. She’s on that “celebrity dating app” Raya, and said she’s seen Ben’s profile on there a few times, starting from about mid-2018. The last time she ever saw him on there was April 2020, which we all know is the time of the first pap walk with JH. She said they never matched on there, but that his profile was “pretty normal for an actor.” Apparently she’s seen other famous actors there who use photos of them at premieres or on sets or from movies to really drive home the point that they’re famous actors. His was a selection of “candid” photos that she then saw on his Instagram, so nothing new to us. Though she said when his profile came up in April, it was a photo of him at the Westworld S3 premiere from just a few weeks before, so he definitely updated it.

Btw, my friend is 27 years old, so at least we know he had his age settings all the way down on that app.

I also did a quick search on Twitter and found someone else who mentioned him being on there, so she’s obviously not the only one who’s seen his profile.

R61 I can’t imagine that having your best friend (Kristy) have to unfollow your boyfriend and having his close friends (Rob, Zelda Williams) have to unfollow you and to make sure none of your family get him in photos is something JH is used to.

Wait - that’s interesting. From mid-2018? Wasn’t that when he supposedly hooked up with Peyton List, before he went to the UK for GD filming? Keeping his options open then! He obviously never took PL seriously. And we see he’s keeping the predator vibe going with dialled down age limits.

Oh, and how sweet - not been on there since April last year. So do they take their profiles down when they’re not actively looking? Could your friend maybe reconfirm that he’s definitely not currently on there?

Oh and how do you get on it - need an invite from another Raya user, or suchlike I guess?

I didn’t even know what Rays was until I saw it mentioned on Deuxmoi, lmao.

R62 Interesting! Finally an answer to my long-standing question of, "Where does he meet these totally random actress wanna-bes?" Because they never seem like people who would organically be a part of his little social circle.

by Anonymousreply 6704/11/2021

R64 not sure about the PL timeline but she showed me a photo she had seen on his profile and it was from when he was filming Punisher 2 and had that buzzcut.

I don’t think she can 100% confirm he’s not currently on it because there’s apparently no way to search for a member, but if she sees him again and tells me, you’ll be the first to know.

A referral is one way to get on that app, or you can just apply. I think either way they comb thru your socials to make sure you’re “cool” — she had to give her IG account for them to take thru her photos. Your profile is also connected to your Instagram so that’s how she knew it was legit him, his official IG was on there. I think she got on it by virtue of being pretty and also working at a major magazine — that’s also why she didn’t swipe on Ben, she said avoids actors because she often has to profile them for work and doesn’t want any conflict of interest, lol.

R62 I'm not saying I don't believe you, but I cannot BELIEVE Ben Barnes is on a dating app. I don't care if it's "only" for hollywood people or however it works (though Goddamn that makes SO much fucking sense now). I cannot believe he's on a dating app!!!

I mean Ben's all shy and sooooo private how could he POSSIBLY ever feel comfortable enough to put himself out there ON A DATING APP?!?!? Once again the private life is a COMPLETE 180 from the carefully crafted public image.

Jesus.. ok asking honestly if anyone knows.. is it possible someone else could have added him on there thinking they were doing him a solid? Or did it absolutely have to be him adding himself? Cause yes, Summer 2018 *should* have been the time of Peyton. No part of this makes sense!!!

by Anonymousreply 6904/11/2021

R69 well among the other names she told me she saw on there, there was Ricky Whittle and Jason Moore from Punisher so maybe one of those two referred him. You *do* have to pay to be a member though, but I’m sure that’s chump change to a guy who’s also a member at Soho House. She said a lot of the pictures were older photos he had on his IG from 2017 and before (until April, when he updated it) and that it seemed like he mostly chose “goofy” pics of himself, like the ones of him hanging on the rocks from Westworld BTS. No super clear indicator that he was an actor otherwise, except that you do have to put your profession on the profile. Not sure how long he had been on it but she saw him when she first got the app in 2018. Oh, and apparently you have to select a song to go on your profile — she said that Ben’s was “Mess Around” by Ray Charles, which she said she only remembered because it seemed to indicate very clearly what he was looking for, lmao.

This does indicate that he was single and looking for someone in April right before the pap walk happened. Maybe he thought JH was a better alternative to swiping endlessly. But is it?? Idk, knowing what we know about him now, I would tell my friend to steer clear, but in another timeline, I actually think she would have been good for him but of course I’m biased.

R70 I was gonna ask if your friend could remember what was on his profile so thanks for the song info. What a choice, Jeez!!!

What was the ‘blurb’ - can she remember?

Shafter of young wannabe’s??!!

Lucky escape for your friend, I’m thinking.

by Anonymousreply 7104/11/2021

R71 I just asked and she said there wasn’t a bio when he updated it in April (they’re not required on the app I guess). But apparently before that, his “main” photo was a black and white pic from a shoot where he’s wearing a white button down shirt and she remembers the bio being some sort of self deprecating joke about how many buttons he had undone in the photo. Which sounds on brand!

Also, she said she had seen his profile circulated in that app the most out of any other actors she had seen on there, which, knowing what I know about algorithms makes me wonder if it was because *he* was consistently trying to match with her. Then again, idk how that app works, but if my theory is correct, we are right again that he has no qualms about trying to link up with a 27-year-old (26 at the time she last saw him on it).

by Anonymousreply 7204/11/2021

R69 Ok, I'll play Devil's Advocate for a minute -- one could say that precisely BECAUSE BB is so shy and awkward and all that shit is why he uses a dating app. Because he's too shy and retiring to approach women in real-life scenarios. Plus women on the app have in some ways been vetted which saves him time and effort. Shy + lazyness = app.

And this way he gets an industry person who will hopefully understand his travails as an actor. *eye roll*

by Anonymousreply 7304/11/2021

R73 you’re right about vetting — my friend is technically breaking “rules” just telling me all this. Apparently if you try to screenshot someone’s profile on there, the app flashes up with a warning that you could get kicked out for doing that more than once. It’s basically Fight Club, you can’t really even talk about it. All the secrecy really does line up with his MO.

by Anonymousreply 7404/11/2021

Mess Around. Specifying how many buttons are *already* undone on your clothes. The women of The Punisher crew gave him the reputation of being a fuckboy. And he's trying to match with mid-20s women on a Hollywood exclusive dating app.

Ben Barnes is a slut. Pure and simple. After all, "God wouldn't have given him this if He didn't want him to share the wealth." I wonder what the original convo was in the script, and how much influence Ben had in re-writing it to include that line. He's made the point that he requires the ability to do that.

No but really ladies, he's always seen himself as a family man. He really wants to have children! But he knows he has to take his time to make sure he can get the relationship right, his parents taught him all about that! Even pushing forty, so little time left to properly take your time and build a good solid partnership.

Oh and in case it isn't COMPLETELY clear to anyone, let me spell it out for you. . .

Ben Barnes has NOTHING inside of him but bullshit. And that pretty face won't continue to hide the lies forever. Just drop the ACT and fucking own it already.

R78 Ohhhhh disagree with you there love.. Just think, what is inherently disturbing about buttons? What is inherently disturbing about a white shirt, with or without buttons? If you saw a shirt on a hanger and it wasn't buttoned up, would that EVER disturb you in any way? No, all those things are perfectly normal. We don't button up shirts on hangers because that would make them harder to take off. And it's not like we're covering anything up when it's on the hanger, so leave the buttons undone. . .

This shirt isn't on a hanger. It's on a person. Who's on a dating app. And the shirt is already half undone. Which he's making sure you notice.

Is it a disturbing question? Or is it an arousing one. Is it self-deprecation? Or is it manipulation.

Also him on a dating app because he is a grown man in his mid to late 30’s who can talk to woman. The shy thing is an act. If you aren’t rich enough, or connected enough, or can’t advance his career I can assume he will treat you like shit. He is as Hollywood as they come. Disgusting.

As he didn’t travel with them up there, we’ll need to keep eyes peeled on the ND/SW stan accounts for more restaurant pics if he joins them later (like Montana?)

But I think ND & SW have cut him out of this trip. Get the feeling they weren’t too keen? He could of course be following on another as yet-undiscovered private account, but why bother?

They didn’t follow him on either public or previous private accounts, they never liked his posts, there was the instant follow to the Paul guy, there was StickerGate.... nah. He’s toast, as far as they’re concerned. He might’ve tried to fit in with them all, but I don’t think he ever really clicked with them.

And if his ‘busy schedule’ didn’t clash with their flight up there, would they really have given the fourth & last seat to their friend/stylist? When SW was right there with ND? Not sure they would have.

I've spent years supporting his work when it was absolute garbage because I thought he was a good person and a fine actor, but the shit that he puts out isn't worth watching if you hate who he is and what (who) he's done.

Based on social media postings, my guess is that BB and RK stayed home watching the BAFTAs while the Ho was on her Napa "business trip."

by Anonymousreply 12604/12/2021

Such a day to realize you accidentally left your phone at home just as you get to work. Sorry for the long catch up..

Ben posted a story of a BAFTA winner's acceptance speech. Who cares? No one except that the official S&B account (not a leak) released new material today. Ben didn't amplify it to his nearly 1 million followers on IG (though he does allow it on his tagged page). Ben didn't even like any tweets about it, much less tweet something himself to further its release. Huh.

Yesterday may have been Napa day, but today was DEFINITELY promotion day. Those two were going at it all day, including reposting each other's material (is that how it's supposed to work???). And Ben didn't like The Ho's "Napa selfie with Nina" post. Is that because.. 1. It's obvious Ben hates Nina now (more on that later) or 2. Ben NEVER supports The Ho's career and/or professional/business ventures, only ever her simple selfies when she shows off how pretty/sexy she is (like every good, stable, HEALTHY relationship, right?).

Chike finally posted to IG today to announce featuring on a magazine cover. Ben's blue check mark did the obligatory like and heart emoji reply. And now just look at alllllll those other blue check marked replies too!! Now this is not intended as negative commentary on Chike in any way, but he doesn't even crack 12K followers and is on a magazine. But he gets the blue check love here. Ben has nearly 1 million followers and is starring in a BIG budget flagship Netflix show. Yet he doesn't seem to get the same lately. Huh.

And now I ponder.. Nearly 40yo pointedly half undressed dating app member privately advertises that he wants to mess around to women welllllllll under thirty. Yet same guy publicly yearns for love and marriage and children, but does not EVER admit to being in a relationship. Actually not only doesn't admit it, but refers to friendship only. Now, we've always assumed it was just "because he was such a private person." But what do you think are the chances it's actually because players need game. How much easier would it be to mess around, maybe even with multiple ladies at once, if you're never in a publicly established relationship? Yeah sure, women talk. But there are a loottttttttttt of women in Hollywood. What percentage of them are really pretty? And what percentage of *them* are looking to leverage how pretty they are, especially in their twenties. Is that a worthy game for a player?

Speaking of women talking, what are the chances that Nina put the final kibosh on The Ho's relationship with Ben? And what are the chances it's because women talk, and Nina knew some shit. I mean, she does still follow Brooksy even long after her best friend's divorce. And remember when Ben posted this song AND INCLUDED THE LYRICS AGAIN (I know you haven't made your mind up yet. . .)? Cause it was a little over a month after the first pap walk. You know, when inside sources reported it was MORE THAN just JH leaning on her friend through her really tough time.

What are the chances.. Huh.

R127 Ha what a thought - ND spilling some dirt to the Ho on wonder boy. And yeah, the full lyric thing was definitely one of his ‘songs with meaning messages’. Another one I won’t be able to listen or watch to again. Then of course the Ho started dancing around with Brooks again and we get ‘Jealousy’. I do still think that one was *very* close to the Ho filing for divorce. But maybe she kept him dangling till the last second.

And the dating app thing? Mid life crisis for sure. Wanting to relive his Caspian glory day in his late twenties, ‘you’re only as old as who you’re feeling’. I think he also doesn’t know what he wants - what with the settling down shit talking he does - and another reason that any ‘real’ relationship between him and the Ho would probably end up worse than Johnny & Amber.

So weird to see an image of JH without a filter. That new pic you can see how she is really aging. Doesn’t she get work done? It kind of shocked me, so used to seeing the filtered face.

R140 Jeez, Syl, that’s so crass! What a dick, in all senses of the word. And does anybody here actually find him attractive? I really don’t. I know that isn’t necessarily the first consideration for the Hollyweird single ladies (net worth, supposed power and influence, number of cars, yachts, houses etc) but shit, he’s fugly.

BB can only dream of being that bad. He probably tried a little “all guys together’ chat with Shauny Boy up in ole Montana, but I bet he saw through Benji’s faux bad boy persona in a heartbeat. I think that no matter how much he might want to be one, he just *isn’t*. His upbringing’s always there in the back of his mind.

Yeah, he might ‘Mess Around’ and trawl that app looking for twenty-somethings to fuck, but when he drops them (or they drop him, fed up with The Invisible Life and can see it’s going nowhere) he still likes their posts! Unless he’s seeing someone new, and then he puts that on hold.

Awwww.

R(the past ten comments or so..) Kinda getting at what I'm wondering about.. What specifically is the reference being made in that tweet? Is it being harassed by haters, cause that's not us. So do we have actual allies out there or is it ubiquitous universal twitter trolls.. Or, is it suggestive sexual commentary and *that* is what made him leave twitter?

Are we supposed to believe he's only now getting people telling him how hot he is? Cause he's been accepted as hot for decades now. Is it just now that teenagers have discovered him or something? And are we to believe that he actually finds it "disconcerting." Cause that's the most milquetoast politician's answer I've ever heard. Susan Collins was infamously "deeply concerned" over Trump too. Yet did she ever do anything about it, or did she just privately reap the benefits of his policies with a publicly furrowed brow.

I don't remember/have easy access to the specific examples, but Ben HAS said something on twitter in the past about 'better behaving ourselves' within his fandom. He was inspired then, but not now. Why is it beneath him to say anything NOW if it's something so horrible that he can barely bring himself onto twitter anymore. Or is it something only "slightly concerning."

And this is why I'm hoping for the specific examples of what's being referenced in that tweet. Cause I can see some giant holes in his logic swiss cheese!

Just to put a finer point on it.. The evidence seems to be showing that it's actually the fraus that have a problem with social media recently, not Ben. Look at that comment linked below. Look at all the comments on the tweet linked at R151. Ben isn't saying/doing anything (except the contractually required *literal* bare minimum of course), the fraus are.

But talk about a pathetic EXCUSE. He literally cares so very little for his "long time fans" that he won't continue to engage with and support them regardless of changes. He won't say anything about the toxic place his social media has apparently become so they feel more comfortable coming to it. Nope, he's just going to flippantly ignore and disregard everyone and leave even the True Blues in the lurch to deal with his shit FOR HIM.

When are you going to get it through your thick skulls fraus? Ben. Does. Not. Give. A. Fuck. About. You. He could NOT be telegraphing it more if he hired planes to skywrite it in neon letters above each of your houses.

(And for the sleuth.. yes he could absolutely be buying IG followers, as The Ho would have taught him how.. Or it could be the phenomenon referenced here. His shitty choices have brought the "undesirables" out of the woodwork IN DROVES to stan his suggestively hot ass. *shrug*)

Of course, they're laying the blame with the new "bad fans" because it couldn't POSSIBLY be Ben that bears ANY responsibility for throwing them to the curb too.

How can he be so obviously hypocratic, yet so "book educated". Like what the fuck. You won't spend your time trying to get a match with a girl in her 20s and read about Denisovich, it's just making no sense.

by Anonymousreply 20004/20/2021

R197 I was just trying to point out the contradictions. On the one hand he's been saying that he wanted to turn down the role. But on the other hand, he was researching it (if looking at Tumblr counts as "research") and angling to get the part. Whatever, Ben. I wonder how much the realization that there was a new, big, female fanbase awaiting him helped him change his mind?

R200 So I zeroed in on the "Solve for Happy" book he mentioned, because it sounded obnoxious, and here's the blurb:

"One of Solve for Happy's key premises is that happiness is a default state. If we shape expectations to acknowledge the full range of possible events, unhappiness is on its way to being defeated. To steer clear of unhappiness traps, we must dispel the six illusions that cloud our thinking (e.g., the illusion of time, of control, and of fear); overcome the brain's seven deadly defects (e.g., the tendency to exaggerate, label, and filter), and embrace five ultimate truths (e.g., change is real, now is real, unconditional love is real)."

That sounds to me like "suffering is a choice." In fact, here's one of the 1-star Amazon reviews:

"His tone is arrogant and his overarching message is that we as humans actively CHOOSE and HAVE CHOSEN to be unhappy and have extended depressive episodes. This is a very dangerous message to send to those who are struggling. Everyone's version of happiness is unique to them and their path to find it is highly individual - there is no single "right" way as this book would suggest. "

Did BB and the Ho read this book together?

by Anonymousreply 20304/20/2021

[quote]I was just trying to point out the contradictions.

R201 Oh I understood, don't worry. I was just extending the thought to make fun of him.

And that 1star review touched on the problem with that "I don't even have to read this to know it's TRASH" book. . . .

That book is obviously and unequivocally the manual that privileged people use to excuse their lives and privilege. Yes, babies are born tabula rasa style. A majority are born to parents that sacrifice anything to care for them, so the first emotion they truly "learn" is happiness. When young children, those same babies grow to play all day with no responsibilities and parents that still sacrifice to care for them. They're still mostly happy (aside from hearing no, which brings sadness. . . wait..)

We start off happy because everything is provided for us. So what changes and when? Well for the extremely privileged like Ben and The HoughMonster, *nothing*. They can afford to continue to have everything provided for them. They can continue to be happy and full of sunshine and SPARKLES All. The. Time.

Problem is, society is a zero sum game. In order for them to be happy all the time, the rest of us HAVE to suffer and go without all the time, because they won't share the literal OR proverbial wealth. It would diminish their "natural" happiness to do so.

Reading books like this teaches the privileged how to live with themselves as they live with everything else the rest of us could use a whole lot more of. It gives them the excuses to convince their rotten brains that they lack all guilt and are doing nothing wrong. They're just continuing on the happy path they've deserved from birth after all.

After all, suffering is a choice, and happiness is our naturally derived default state.

I wonder if Ben and The Ho EVER watch the news, or does REALITY cause too much cognitive dissonance and empathy? I wonder if they know that half a million children in Yemen are literally on the brink of dying from starvation as we speak? I wonder if even *ONE* of those children was "born happy" but chooses now to suffer into a famine and death at 15 months old? Why didn't their young brains just choose to eat their way into a happier life? Maybe they're not old enough to read this book.

If Ben Barnes read this book and thinks or speaks of it with ANYTHING but derision, that is literal proof to me that he is a spoiled *rotten* asshole who does not care about anyone but himself. He *cannot* be a good person and see this book in a positive light. People who can't see this book for the soulless danger it is are the fundamental problem in this world.

For as much BB claims he doesn’t use social media, he reads all the articles about himself referenced in that live he did. I also think he reads these. This is far more entertaining than the twitter fangirls. Wonder if he’ll be at the beach clean up this weekend with JH? If S&B becomes the new game of thrones I will be shocked. Come next week we will shall see.

It's not going to be the next Game Of Thrones but it sounds like it's reviewing fairly well, so I think it could be more akin to Witcher popularity. There was one review that was not so glowing and called it cliche, as well as said that non book readers wouldn't care for it. Everybody has been kind to Benny Boy so far though, from the ones I've read.

by Anonymousreply 22304/21/2021

Ya know.. slept on it.. thought on it some more.. and I realized, maybe I'm not shocked he didn't post anything about chauvin.

If you think about what happened in that case, a man was (admitted understatement of the year) doing something inappropriate. A crowd of people gathered and started telling him as much. And the behavior continued. So the crowd grew louder, and more fervent, as they yelled, and screamed, and pleaded with the man to STOP his "bad behavior" because it was *obviously* hurting someone. And they had cameras, they had the proof.

And yet, the man just stayed there. Arrogant. Dismissive. Uncaring of his responsibility to another. *Certain* that he had every right to do what he was doing, because people like him do not EVER face consequences. Society's system is purpose built to ensure that.

The chauvin trial forced that man to face public ACCOUNTABILITY. And when presented with all the evidence, objective people found him GUILTY.

We've come to learn, Ben does **NOT** like accountability for *himself*. So it would have been highly hypocritical for him to have said anything positive about chauvin's guilty verdict.

But then again, we've also learned that Ben has absolutely NO problem with being a hypocrite.

Does JH kind of sound sick in that story and then on that live BB also had a raspy voice. He was drinking tea I’m assuming. Why would they both be sick at the same time? God can they just reveal it already. Brooks revealed his shit and no one cares about him, like really no one. His stories where his personality shows, like there is not a lot there. R227 she has to be sexy while she sells you shit. Looks like Kinrgy might be a sinking ship, she seems to really be pushing it lately. Another failed thing for JH, onto the next grift.

Well, teenage girls are a fickle lot and if they jumped ship before the show premiered, Benny would have been in a world of hurt. If they're still together, (tho our darling Sleuth thinks they're not), they may reveal in the next few weeks if ever. The ho can't possibly be as accepting as the toddlers he's dated in the past with his "shove her in the bushes if anyone even remotely looks like they recognize me!" policy. If the show is a hit, she's gonna want to hitch her wagon to that success. But they definitely won't come out before that all important cut-off for streamers to judge the success of a show. The teenagers who call him Daddy won't be down with him having a gf, cuts into their fantasies.

R228 He could be hoarse from practicing reciting his 'poem' before the recording.

Regardless, I see no compelling evidence that they've broken up. Her spending a few days alone getting free luxe spa and hotel treatments is meaningless. It's healthy for couples to have apart time (yes, it's weird to use "healthy" when referring to BB and JH) and if they've been together for about a year they should be well beyond the "must be in your physical presence every waking moment" stage. After all, they're not teenagers. *cough* I'll assume they're together until I see her on a pap walk with a new sucker or we get word that Ben is back on the ho stroll in the dating app.

[quote]"A shadow needs light to be a shadow,” the Chronicles of Narnia actor told Us, noting that sometimes, he’d add in his own personality in order to make Kirigan appear sweeter — which, in turn, only made his betrayal even worse. "There’s a moment where he reveals he’s not all that he seems and that he’s probably been manipulating her. And I was like, ‘Right, so the moment before that needs to be as sweet as I can find.’ And there’s a sort of moment where she kisses him and then he leaves the screen. Then, he runs back in and gives her another kiss — which was just something I sort of thought of in the moment,” Barnes shared with Us. “I was like, ‘That’s endearing, that’s real, and that’s from me.’ That’s not in the books. I can sort of balance out the moment, which I think keeps the mystery. And it also keeps you feeling, like, yeah, I don’t support anything he’s doing and he’s completely uncontrollable, but he could be redeemed? Maybe?”

Juuuuussstt interesting.. Gotta make sure you play up how sweet and loving he is before you reveal it was all a lie and you've actually been manipulating everyone the whole time. That came from Ben. Cause that makes the betrayal hurt that much more. That was Ben's idea.

Cause after all, he doesn't say, "Yes, I am your villain," he says, "Fine, make me your villain." Cause he believes he's done nothing wrong. Isn't that how it goes Ben?

But yeah girls, keep thinking there's no way Ben could be an asshole. Cause he's SO kind and sweet, he couldn't *possibly* know *anything* about being bad.. He's safe, no danger there..

Just confused. Was ready to look out for BB in the background trying to hide because he is now all super famous. There are stories saying go to the event and then nothing about the event. The whole point of the event is to promote your company yes? The first person to person thing in a year.

Also S&B thoughts? Watched the first episode and it looks great, but still felt like children pretending to be powerful and interesting adults when it is clear they are children. Haven’t even got to BB and honestly was a bit bored so not sure if I’ll meander back to it.

From the stories on Kinrgy all the dudes look the same. BB is pretty generic looking so like idk, I don’t think he was there. He could have put on a mask and hat and baggy clothes, would anyone recognize him? Then again all of twenty people showed up for that so. Huge success, no one cares about your weird cult JH.

With S&B being #1 on Netflix right now to show up to her public event would be saying yes we are together, yes we be fucking, yes I support all the crazy shit JH talks about Las Not saying they won’t come out at a later date. Idk he could have been there for the clean up. Looking at these stories man she is so basic without those filters. Her legs are big, dang girl. We’ll see. If anyone spots him would love to see it.

I mean, she's a dancer. I never really feel the need to comment on her looks, unless it's something interesting like possible work done or that weird rash around her face that could have maybe meant she was pregnant or something. Also, I think it's odd when you guys make fun of her older looks but then slam Ben for going after young women. I HATE her for who she is, not her looks. I don't care one way or another how she looks because she's super ugly and vapid on the inside. I'd still rather Ben date a woman with a few wrinkles and crinkles here and there than a 22 year old. I'd just prefer she not be a monster.

by Anonymousreply 24204/24/2021

It bugs me that Ben keeps pointing out that everybody has the capacity for evil. Actually not really. Can people have a bad day? Sure. Are humans ever perfectly kind? No. But it's very very weird to say that we all have that dark inside of us. Sounds like projection. When he first would mention it, at least when I first saw it, around Westworld and that character, he made it sound a bit more nuanced and interesting. Like yeah, it's good to bring out the layers and shades of a person. But evil and darkness? Eesh

Also, Ben. If you are reading this. PLEASE STOP WHISPER ACTING!!! I wish he'd just use his own damn voice. Even in Golddigger when he was supposed to sound like himself, he did it. I miss old Ben. I miss the way he used to act. It was never the best, but I was genuinely impressed with the way he changed with every role. I saw him in two things before I actually noticed him in Westworld, Stardust and Big Wedding, and didn't realize it. Both times in hindsight I remembered thinking he was cute in the moment. But he actually changed and molded himself within the role. When the role fit him well, he would be pretty darn fun to watch! Now, it's just all this same voice, same whisper over dramatic intense crap that's really cringey (AND I HATE THE WORD CRINGE, I only use it when I really mean it because it's so overused). In Westworld he did it, but firstly, it was new at the time. Secondly, he only did it at certain moments and the rest of the time he was so charming and playful and the only one on the show having any fun, which is the main reason I finally loved him enough to look him up. I think he did change his personality, and it goes right along with the boring and shitty acting.

by Anonymousreply 24304/24/2021

Now that I think about it, Westworld really was a turning point in this new part of his career. All TV, and for the most part, finally some critical success he's always lacked. Even when he's done something good in the past, and gotten decent reviews like Jackie and Ryan, it went basically unseen. So he doubled down on that style of character, just without the fun part, and it's been the same ever since.

When I looked him up after seeing Westworld I remember thinking... "wow he's British and mild mannered!" and "wow, he was in those other movies I saw?" He was so different!" and then I started watching other things. First were Easy Virtue and Jackie and Ryan and I just fell for this actor who would look so different in every role, but still look good, and be so different in every role, and be fairly natural in them, and also was very taken by his ability to sing. This total asshole guy in Westworld, who was charming and seemingly kind and a bit dorky and could sing!!! (I didn't know at the time that left to his own devices he really can't sing, he just has a nice singing voice that can be molded into a good performance when forced) It was quite enchanting. It's the things that made him different that I liked the most. Those strange dark eyes, slightly crooked teeth, unease with social media, his braying nerdy laugh, and the fact that he looked like this incredibly hot douche but didn't seem to act like one. As I've said before, I'm not as upset with his lying and hypocritical behavior, because I have other crushes I care far more about when it comes to morals and intelligence. At the end of the day, he was mostly for pleasure. It's the fact that he's become more and more like everyone else, and so much less interesting and unique. Now he's just another pretty face.

I agree Westworld was a turning point. At the time I was convinced that it was going to be a positive turning point. HBO! Anthony Hopkins! Prestige! Finally, the quality parts will start rolling in! What's the opposite of a psychic? Because that's me.

R242 I don’t think he’d go to the Ho’s beach thing. Consider this....

He’d have had to completely bury himself in the sand to avoid another dog sled incident. Too many other people around to control with the ‘No Photos!’ shit. He was in a face mask and bulky cold weather clothing in Montana and he still got outed.

Ben Barnes - picking up trash off a beach? Nah.

And he’s had all that tiring and tedious S&B promo recently - poor lambkins - so her timing for that Kinrgy shitshow wasn't great. The day after S&B launch? Maybe she just didn’t want him grabbing all the limelight. Some astrologers seem to think that’s a problem for Cancer/Leo relationships, they both like to be in the spotlight. Oops.

Personally I think him and Rob sat down after he opened his box of Netflix goodies and got trashed for the rest of the night. Reckon that’s why he was up early, looking for painkillers for his hungover little head, lmao.

by Anonymousreply 25504/25/2021

R254 He’s worn 3 necklaces that I know of, during the time I’ve followed him....

Signet ring on a black leather strap, I believe it was from his mother or possibly a family heirloom. This was the only one he wore for several years, from before the first Caspian movie if I remember correctly. The ring was usually hidden, but you can see the black strap in quite a lot of tv interviews and photo shoots. He had a couple of different straps for it, one thicker than the other.

The small - coin? medallion? - on a silver chain which he was wearing in several S&B press interviews recently. This seemed to make its’ first appearance in March 2020, in one of his song cover videos. The chain is visible on his neck but the pendant is under his t-shirt. The next time it appears is in April, on the duet with the runner from Punisher 2, this time you can see the whole necklace and the chain’s the same as in the previous video (taken from the same angle). In August 2020, again on a singing video, he’s wearing the same pendant but on a thin black string. Now it’s back on a chain.

The Eclipse necklace (circle on a chain), made its’ appearance during S&B filming - pic of him & Luca Pasqualino looking down at the camera, posted by LP in March 2020 - and in a singing video in Oct 2020, then in various other S&B-related events. It’s the only one he’s ever directly referred to, as ‘my Eclipse necklace’ on a video promo for the audiobook which was due out in December.

The first and third necklaces are pretty easy to assign meanings to (and we know BB likes his hidden meanings) but I have no idea about the second one, which he’s back to wearing again. I can’t even tell what the pendant is!

So your guess is as good as mine on that one.

by Anonymousreply 25604/25/2021

So I know the answer to the shaving/beard thing. In the 7th episode he plays a flashback of the character (not in the books) where he is clean shaven for it. So they wanted that difference between the current General and the former Darkling. By the way, he strangely didn't look particularly young even without the beard in the shots I saw. Maybe the makeup or whatever added to the creases in his forehead and eyes or something.

Who is he trying to convince? The fangirls worship him no matter what he does and the rest left a long time ago.

R280 what interview? I feel inspired to troll.

by Anonymousreply 28104/27/2021

R280 Well come on now all, let's continue the thought! In nearly every interview he talks about how he needed to humanize Kirigan so the character wasn't a villain. How did he do this? By "bringing parts of himself in and making sure to make Kirigan sweet." He knows how that plays with the audience's emotions, but really guys! Really he's sweet in real life, can't you see!!

Also, how many times does he talk about how lonely Kirigan is? How many lost loves he's had. How many times he's tried *everything* and yet always utterly failed to get what he wanted/needed. How he's so powerful but then also so isolated at the top of society. And so, he decides to abuse his power. He turns to manipulation. He turns to lying. He feels that's his only play left and he's going to finally win.

The problem Ben says, is in this day and age, he can't condone Kirigan's actions/choices, and the audience shouldn't forgive him. But Ben *MADE* *SURE* the audience questioned whether Kirigan could be redeemed. That's why he made him human, not a villain.

Now, do all those quotes properly apply to the character in the show? Yes absolutely. But is there *anyone* else, in *any* way, that just *maybe* those quotes might apply to as well? Might there be *any* other reason Ben seems to understand this character So. Damned. Well. I mean, this is the most/deepest explanation Ben's given of a character. . . ever??? No, Ben will never share anything about his personal self and life. But in this instance, he will share the hell out of his problematic character's life. Makes me honestly wonder if there's something between the lines here.

(btw.. WHY does he keep qualifying every time by saying "IN THIS DAY AND AGE Kirigan's actions aren't condonable? Because what that's actually saying is it's only now that abuses of power are unacceptable. Meaning it was okay and permissible back in the day. Oh no no no dear Ben. Abuse is, AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN, unequivocally ***WRONG***. The only difference 'in this day and age,' is the rich and powerful are finally starting to face public ACCOUNTABILITY when they're wrong and abuse their power. The little people finally have the collective power to let abusers know how wrong we think they are. To do so, is to hope to change behaviors, so abuse is left behind to the proverbial dust bin of history. Where it belongs.)

R280 That is absolutely infuriating. Ben obviously thinks that "Never EVER telling the truth" is different from outright lying, so in his mind he's pure as the driven snow. Bullshit. The only thing this man doesn't lie about constantly is how much he loves seeing his face on billboards.

by Anonymousreply 28304/28/2021

So BB posts a story about astrology, of course his face is in it because he can’t not post something that isn’t about him, then JH post a story about astrology where bella and Kendall are flipping of the paps. I feel like she is trolling BB. Also posted her billboard.

Like dang girl making it so obvious. If you are gonna be shady, make it subtle. She already got the bikini pics in Mexico, she posted a black dress while in Mexico, which is the color of the character BB defends so much. BB isn’t with her, even though brooks moved on, she is doing the most.

by Anonymousreply 28404/28/2021

If they broke up, I hope she trolls the shit out of him no-holds-barred. It might even make me a fan.

My theory is that -if- they broke up, it's because that Ben was perfectly happy to have her as a 'quarantine girlfriend.' Other than the MT trip, all of that enforced seclusion is Ben's ideal way to conduct a relationship. Is any wonder that we're seeing them apart right as things are opening up back to normal? He tried the ice cream pap walk, but as soon as reality sunk in that they'd have to come out from under their rock even further, he got cold feet. Like he always does. It's not because he suddenly realized what a garbage person SHE is...he's known her for eight years.

How much of a dick does one have to be to make me want to take sides with JH?? He should try making his gfs wear burkas, maybe that'd suit his needs.

by Anonymousreply 28504/28/2021

Yep and in that flipping off post, it's all about how Cancer girls appear all cute and innocent (full of sunshine??) but will go crazy when wronged. It's a clear message to someone.

Or maybe she's jealous of all the gushing he does over his co-star. Calling her "literal human sunshine" and whatnot.

I could never like Jules Ho though. "Suffering is a choice" was the final straw. Also, her parents are trash. There, I said it. Because I remember after the blackface incident she said she just didn't know. If that's true, and she really got to that age not knowing that blackface is wrong, then her life growing up was fucked. And her parents definitely look like the type of people who had plantation parties or some shit.

by Anonymousreply 28704/28/2021

R286 oh her parents are trash. I’ve heard some rumors that they were in a cult when they were younger. Then shipped her and Derek to London to dance when they were kids. Can’t imagine any real education was happening, hence the black face I’m not educated I was just chasing stardom since I was a child. Also JH talked about how she had some inappropriate things happen with an older male teacher that were traumatic. So like the whole family clearly has many issues and I don’t know if they have really dealt with those or if they just cover them up with shiny sparkles. Also who knows, we will never know the truth and I don’t care honestly. They way they act in public is enough to signify the greater pain lurking under the surface. JH does like to put all her personal business in the public sphere. The whole brooks talking about his sex life thing comes to mind.

If she is sending a message through Instagram stories that seems like such a high school way to deal with your problems. You have the sexy beach photos with nothing left to the imagination on page six, let that be enough. Don’t add to it. Mature woman don’t deal with their problems this way. The fact that BB was so smitten he was doing covers of songs for her just blows my mind. This is what you wanted and were pinning for and ultimately caused so much shit for you? This?

R287 Syl Nina seems like she would throw down! Heard some many stories about her partying days, that is why her and Shaun work so well. They are both have skeletons.

by Anonymousreply 28804/28/2021

R283 R285 Yes he has known her for eight years. And she leans on him during her troubled times. Either he's a completely blind fucking *idiot*, or he knows exactly how manipulative she is.

So what if. . . he has absolutely no problem with her manipulations (like he said). After all, she was manipulating other people. It wasn't Ben, so why would he care?

But then. . . what if she outright LIED to him. Well that's something he just can't countenance. That crosses*his* personal line and will not be tolerated.

And now he's bitching about it in interviews so the world knows he's the real victim. Ever the purest of pitiable angels.

by Anonymousreply 28904/28/2021

R289 I kinda keep getting the feeling he’s had his ‘Chuck’ moment. Yeah, maybe when she turned her manipulative shit onto him. Cos as I said a couple of threads ago, he had a ring-side seat for all the Brooks stuff.

R291 No, but keep in mind that Ben never shares his private life. He shows off the special things he gets to do and posts about those. But all the "private life" photos with friends or otherwise have come from those friends, never him. So if The HoughMonster herself didn't let us know, we never would.

R292 R293 Well BLUSH!!! But no, other than the word general, there's no comparisons to be made. Kirigan ostensibly has all the power, he's not a slave inspiring a revolution. His king wants him there leading the army, though he barely interacts with his people. Kirigan doesn't protect the people he loves and/or sacrifice himself in order to kill the bad guy and free his people. Kirigan *is* the bad guy and sacrifices everyone else to gain more power and free himself.

Maybe you could make a comparison to the younger version when he first created the fold? Then he was nothing more than a rebel trying to save his people from death. He didn't actually succeed per se, and used black magic, not noble inspiration, to save himself and his mother. And that was centuries before he became General Kirigan. But that's really as close as I can come.

by Anonymousreply 29504/28/2021

R295 Oh believe me I know how much BB tries to hide his private life, but consider for a moment that Hough and Laich were together for 7 years in total until they split last year.

I don’t where the confirmation for this came from but allegedly BB & the Ho have been pals for 8 years now. So for the vast majority of that time, she was with Brooks. Do you see BB hanging out with them a lot? Mmmmm, not really. We’ve already seen that he doesn’t gel too well with sporty jock types eg SW.

I think BB did his usual fangirling when he met the Ho and her bro, ‘ooh they’re more famous than me’ - and bumped into them occasionally at events and the odd backyard bbq. *Shrugs* but as usual who knows with him.

He’s taken a very tiny step back towards redemption in my opinion by not going to Mexico (or Hawaii) with her. I pray he’s learned his lesson about Covid-travelling after Montanagate. I know some/a lot of you don’t agree but I think he got such a damn shock after getting outted on that and the backlash in posts and comments about it, that I don’t think he’ll risk that or a pap walk ever again.

Certainly not until/if Covid ever comes off the table - and if they’re still together - whenever that might be.

As far as I’m concerned, she’s completely irredeemable.

And can’t believe she called Backgrid again for the Mexico thing, so freaking predictable *rolls eyes* Maybe she was hoping to rope in BB for the trip so they could do a beach walk but he wouldn’t play ball this time.

He’s still busy posting S&B stuff after all.

by Anonymousreply 29604/28/2021

Are the paps following her for the entire time she is in Mexico? I don’t need to see every single vacation look from JH. How funny if she planned this to be a coming out, romantic vaca in Mexico right after his show premieres and BB was like ummm no. He would score points with me if that is the case. Hope brooks is super jealous of you JH, oh wait no he is fucking his new girlfriend not thinking of you, so looks like no one is jealous.

by Anonymousreply 29804/28/2021

R296 Please don't misunderstand, I don't actually necessarily disagree with you about their previous relationship. I was just attempting to point out that if we had to rely on public proof that Ben actually had *any* friends that he ever actually spent *any* time with (outside of public events). . . well I think I could count those friends on one hand. And what's more likely? That Ben doesn't have any friends to hang out with? Or he does have friends and hangs all the time, but we the public just never get to see the evidence that he has a life AT ALL. In short, I wouldn't rely on/believe one way or the other how "close" or not he is with friends.

And the eight year confirmation came from Ben himself during the ice cream date. Oh wait I'm sorry, the confirmation came from the second inside source, who confirmed they weren't dating (just have been friends for eight years). In contrast to the first inside source (whoever could that be?!?!?), who commented how close and flirty they were on their "walk" as they shared their ice cream all smiles during a deadly, highly communicable pandemic. Cause they weren't dating, so that was a safe thing to do. Stupidest. Fucking. People. Alive.

Though I do (hopefully respectfully) disagree about your redemption thoughts because I don't see refusing to be papped with her after that destroyed him the first time as learning his lesson about covid, lying, hypocrisy and abusing privilege. That's merely (possibly??) learning his lesson about trusting her. Because that's all we know, that he won't be seen in public with her again (agree with you there!!!). We don't know at all that he stopped being stupid about covid. We don't know at all what he's been doing (or not doing!) in private these past couple months. Other than going to that maskless awards show that The Ho performed in of course. The Sleuth tracked down the proof he SECRETLY went (again!!!). Lessons learned??? Should we then take him at his word because he said that billboard was around the corner from his house? And should we definitely trust that he took the photo THAT DAY cause he said so? I mean it's not like he's EVER lied or tried to throw everyone off the scent of what he was secretly doing before, right? Sure, that billboard photo is definitive proof he was home that day. There's no other possible explanation to post it.

Always remember.. Fool me once. . . .

I hate that we can’t trust him and in the back of my head I’m thinking well maybe he is in Mexico with her and just not going to the beach where the paps are. Always that doubt now with him. Granted he doesn’t have to share his personal life, but since he is so shady about everything it’s like well what can I believe? At least the fake people on socials you know they are fake. The fact that he secretly went to that awards show and we know he went totally shows he is fine with supporting JH and being with her as long as no one knows. That event was months after montanagate and all the backlash and he was still with her, still liking her selfies. Until he stops following her and blocks it all is when I’ll believe they are done. Even with all the we are just friends, not dating, blah, blah, it feels false. I want to support him. I want to believe he is not a liar, I want to believe all the stuff he says in those interviews is who he is. Then his actions paint this different picture. Man at least when he was the maybe gay creep he still had credibility.

So, as the son of therapists, he's a natural manipulator, yes? I don't think that he believes that keeping secrets and telling lies are the same thing, even if those secrets lead others to believe untruths. This quote sums it up nicely:

'It’s also important for therapists to recognize the difference between a secret and a lie. The two are related but distinct, says Ellen Marks, PhD, an associate psychologist with University Health Services at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, who has conducted research in this area. "While they both may include a level of deception, a secret is an act of omission, while a lie is an act of deception," she notes.'

So, to him, not only are his fans not real people to whom he owes honesty, but he isn't *overtly* lying.

Bottom line, he's a hypocritical, homewrecking scumbag who preached one thing about covid, and then when the chance to get laid came along, his overprivileged ass did the exact opposite.

As far as redemption? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice?

There are similarities, people can and will be hurt by both, but there legitimately is that distinction in both intent and context. That's why we have two different words, they're technically not the same.

If I may, I'll ask the eldergays (hopefully not you youngsters still, but unfortunately. . . ) here to consider the past and whether/when you chose to come out or not. Is there a difference between just not talking about your sexuality and outright denying you were gay? Both would have been done to protect yourself from a more dangerous worldview. But is there no difference between the two? I believe there is, but that is just my opinion.

R314 Yes, there is a difference in that example, but context is everything. A small-town or rural gay, especially in the past, when coming out could literally mean your death? Understandable. Get away from there and then come out.

But young, urban gays of 2021 who don't come out, I don't have respect for and neither does the DL generally. It's a cowardly act, you're living a lie, you are potentially hurting people in your life by allowing them to believe falsehoods about you. And if you ever DO come out, they'll be doubly hurt because you were keeping shit from them for years.

Ben has no reason to be the way he is. Nothing bad is going to happen if he acknowledges that he has a life and relationships. He won't literally be killed or beaten up. No one is expecting the excruciating details, but a simple, "Yes I am dating/have dated so and so." This is the age of transparency. Ben would have loved to live in the Golden Age of Hollywood with some studio chief inventing a whole fake identity for him.

[quote]“I don’t think there’s ever been a problem with people feeling empathy for the Darkling,” Bardugo says with a nod toward the book fans deeply invested in the “Darklina” relations. “Give someone a strong jawline and a serious agenda and suddenly people are deeply invested.” But, she said, Kirigan’s seductive qualities are very much part of the point. “My goal has always been to create a deep gulf between the things he says and the things he does. That is the challenge that I’m presenting to the reader,” she says. “I made him beautiful and seductive for a reason. The dangerous people in our lives don’t enter with the word evil stamped on their forehead or twirling their mustache, they are often beautiful and wounded. And that doesn’t mean that they can’t still do damage.”

Follow up question. . . is this his way of showing he's proud he can sing like a girl? Or is it his way of letting us all know he's gone off the fucking deep end? Except he's so full of his own hype he believes he'll never have to own up and come crashing down to the ground.

Why go to Mexico and then go to Costa Rico? Do the paps not exist in Costa Rico and had to make brooks or ben jealous with all of those bikini pics. We get it JH you are wealthy and don’t care that so many people are dying and will always flaunt your lifestyle. Even in a pandemic, you will take more vacations than one person ever needs to.

Yup, BB is going to be taking the Dumbledore, Gandalf, Magneto, etc route but skipping the part where you have a multi-decade-long incredibly distinguished career as a legitimate actor behind you first. Gravitas? That doesn't pull the girls!

by Anonymousreply 35605/06/2021

I'll admit, it's kind of exciting to see him get a burst of recognition, just because now there will be more eyes on him. Maybe Deuxmoi will start paying attention, as well as the pap. He may actually get tagged by them without needing the Ho to call it in first! Plus, if anything, he doesn't like invasions of privacy. Well, when you dance with the devil (popularity over substance) that's what you get Benny B! I swear this is him trying to make up for not getting the Twilight part. It's never gonna be THAT big, but at least he gets a taste of what Robert Pattison had. I have a feeling he enjoyed it for about 5 minutes and now he's second guessing everything. Maybe that's why he is in a grumpy mood. He's already said that when he watched the show he had feelings of "I don't want to be this character anymore".

My 10 year old nephew, who I spend a lot of time with, loves the show. It's perfect for immature kids. I remember practically forcing him to watch Narnia and Stardust, and now I'm just...please no. It's better than my sister with mental disabilities though. She watches Grease Live! A LOT, so I have to hear Ho singing as Sandy a million times.

by Anonymousreply 35705/06/2021

Also, I love when he repeats the same talking points about a show/movie in every interview. That's usually when you know he thinks its crap. He finds any little thing to focus on that he actually enjoys about the show (the use of different language/unique playing cards) and runs it to the ground. It's like the Friends episode where they are watching another awful TV show of Joey's and they argue over who gets to mention the lighting (or something like that). He did this a lot with Seventh Son. He tried to use the angle of "it's like those old adventurous shows like Sinbad!" to hide the fact that it had such bad writing. Then years later he will openly admit how bad something was. Can't wait for 10 years from now when he trash talks Shadow and Bone and explains his new tactic for great parts. "NOW I look for material that..." blah blah blah.

by Anonymousreply 35805/06/2021

It would be fun to try to chart the projects he genuinely likes compared to the ones he clearly hates. In my opinion:

LOVES/Proud of: Westworld, Jackie and Ryan for sure. The Words and Killing Bono maybe. Also Birdsong and History Boys (but really upset at himself for leaving) Likes: Narnia, The Punisher Season One, iffy on Season Two (I really think he's pissed about the lack of scars/they didn't listen to him), Stardust Meh: Easy Virtue (mostly loved making out with Biel, working with Colin Firth, and the music), Seventh Son just for Jeff Bridges, Bigga Than Ben HATES: Dorian Gray, By The Gun, Big Wedding (doesn't regret it though. Honestly don't blame him, especially because of Robin Williams), Hyrise Pretends Doesn't Exist: That movie where he dies in a car crash but doesn't know it.

We will see where Shadow and Bone lands later I guess. If you have any debate or if I forgot something, LMK

So I’m the poster up thread who said that my friend had seen him on Raya. She said the screenshot DM got was what his profile looked like when she last saw him last year, hence why the screenshot shows him as being 38. Very likely that the song was still “Mess Around,” but he probably removed the “unbuttoned shirt” reference since he changed the photo.

In any case, she’s pretty sure he deleted the profile sometime last year, and if he didn’t, he definitely has by now.

by Anonymousreply 367Last Friday at 8:06 AM

So Matthew Perry was FaceTiming with a 19 year old not long ago asking if he was old enough to be her dad. They matched on Raya.

Then there is the desperate Ben Affleck video, they matched on Raya. Not sure how old that girl was.

If Ben was trying to hook up with 19 year olds, that is just sick. I know his good friend Chris Delia likes them young and chris is a predator. If Ben are my buttons low enough Barnes turns out to be a predator scamming on young girls on Raya, like no matter how much he says he is this good guy in interviews I will never believe it. He has even said in interviews how relationships with large age gapes are manipulative and more about control than actual connection. Disgusting.

Girls keep showing those receipts. Out these motherfuckers. If there are receipts from Ben get them out. Grown men trying to fuck people they should never be talking to in the first place, makes me sick. These grown ass men do more damage than they know. Really what do you talk to a 19 year old about when you are in your 30’s or 40’s? Disgusting.

At least he freely admits he doesn't subscribe to the voice in his head that would make him feel guilty because "who wants to feel bad all the time?"

Oh and also, why does the voice make him think about bad things ever at all, because YOLO.

Seriously can he get any more pathetic? If this is what he requires in order to have any mental health then there is literally something fundamentally wrong with him.

Syl for a couple of years I’ve always wondered if maybe his mom or dad were or is sick. He said before he started westworld he was living back at home because of a sick family member. He had a whole story about how he hurt his foot right before shooting westworld, he fell down the stairs while he was living with his family. Then he started supporting Stand up 2 cancer. Maybe during that point he was like well looks like my career is over, then he got westworld. They originally casted someone older and then changed their minds last minute and like plunged BB into the deep end. If anything this last year he can see how quickly things can change, maybe he should actually start being transparent and stop curating every single thing. Why he is spending time with JH, someone who does nothing but plays games, when he has all these life lessons staring him in the face is beyond me.

R379 I’m still very disappointed in him about the covid travelling and previous ‘stay at home’ preaching. And actually quite surprised at his choice in women even just to hang out with. Empty-headed bimbos just wouldn’t have been my guess as his type but maybe as someone said, he doesn’t want to be challenged by his women and also goes for young ones so he control them. The least I can hope for is that he’s learned his lesson, particularly about the covid stuff. It seems he didn’t go to either Hawaii, Mexico or Costa Rica on her grifting vacations so he either has, or else couldn’t fit it into his busy S&B schedule. Yeah, never ‘meet’ your idols.

Meanwhile, as for the Ho - crisis? what crisis? I’m just gonna carry on trying to screw money out of people who cannot afford it. But at least I give you some sparkles while doing it.

by Anonymousreply 381Last Monday at 12:47 AM

This is less my business than the public health issue of COVID traveling but I’m perplexed by whatever is happening with him/JH. If they ARE together, why would she jet off to Mexico just as he has a big new show drop instead of, idk, sticking around and being supportive? Granted, the way I behave in relationships may not be how someone else would, but if my partner was in a big moment of their career, I’d want to be around to celebrate that with them. And if they’re not together, why strategically wait days to like each other’s IG posts? Maybe it’s a friends with benefits situation? But that doesn’t explain him being so smitten that he was playing cover songs seemingly for/about her last year.

R382 I would have paid good money to be a fly on the wall over the past year, that’s for sure. But I probably wouldn’t have liked what I saw & heard, so just as well I wasn’t! I think she started off using him, kept him dangling for most of the year while she was fucking around with Brooks’ head, before entrapping him with some banging, and... “It’s All Over Now”.

Now there’s a cover for you to sing, Benji.

It could just be because I'm old, but I really think people are placing too much emphasis on the timing of his IG likes, lack of likes, and so on. I think it's meaningless.

by Anonymousreply 384Last Monday at 4:08 AM

I think they have something going on still. I think they know people are watching what they like so they are playing this game of supporting each other, but keeping it on the DL. I think she went to Mexico for pap pics, since Brooks had just come out with the new gf. I can even see her trying to get BB to Mexico, but he got scared of the backlash so close to his show being out. Remember he watched the show weeks before it came out, probably with her. As for Mexico she needs bikini pics in the press as a look how amazing I look despite my husband immediately moving on after we split. Also all her clothes are 1000’s dollars worth of cult gaia. Was there a deal there as well? Promote the brand on ig and in the tabloids. Also on all these vacations her clothes are costing 1000’s of dollars. That ugly outfit for montanagate the boots were designer. Designer boots in the snow to ride a horse. Flaunting wealth constantly. I think Costa Rica was maybe last minute thing, hence the post with all of them saying we don’t have kids let’s go to Costa Rica. Why was nina not there in Costa Rica? That is her good friend as well. Where is Nina? Her vacations were basically all of S&B promo. She was gone for like two weeks so then nothing could even come close to outing them during this moment for him. I think that was deliberate. Throw them off the trail, while she documents all of it for BB to see on insta.

BB knows everyone hates her. She can still be supporting him in a private way. Who knows they would be together right now as she probably flew back yesterday.

I think he likes that the trolls hate her and that it is secret. He gets off on that. Now that the fan base is teenagers he knows it will ruin it to post anything personal. Personal now is JH. I think she won. Brooks knows that’s why he did the press announcement of his new relationship. No one made him do that. No one cares, him and his gf are not famous. JH is a master manipulator and BB is weak obviously. He really only cares about money and fame and ego. Just like her. She is perfect for what he wants, she has millions, goes on expensive vacas, constantly grifting, “famous”, and sparkles. He really needs to belong somewhere in Hollywood. Hello magazine called them a power couple. Would be ecstatic to be proven wrong, I think they are together.

Were these accounts literally completely shut down by IG, or was it only a time out cause someone reported it and the algorithm is automated, or something else?

Because I saw and read that entire post first thing this morning. All I saw was a gathering of publicly available info posted widely elsewhere on the internet to point out a timeline. Did I miss an implicit threat in there? Did the post "reshare" info that was unequivocally adjudicated as false? Did the post break ANY *actual* rules At. All.

Cause this would be a new level of self-righteous indignant arrogance if Ben himself got an account cancelled because it reposted documented evidence of things he did that he doesn't want the world to know about or blame him for.
