There will undoubtedly be a tsunami of hate for anyone he dates. If some people were having upsetting reactions to the games BB and JH may or may not have been playing just a few hours ago about an unconfirmed relationship and a story with a former coworker about another work project is enough for one part of the fandom to go attack another part of the fandom for not having a strong enough hate reaction and therefore interpreting it as defending her, imagine what’s going to happen when BB hops on Instagram just to briefly announce his new wife and maybe sing a little jingle or duet, and then walks away in virtual slow motion while the whole internet implodes

by Anonymousreply 69Last Thursday at 2:05 AM

Same story. Out of his sheer unwillingness to control his social media persona, those rabid stans feel encouraged in attacking his employer and calling for people of their social media team to get fired over nothing. The Geeked tweet was not even mocking him. He could shut it down by writing a tweet saying that it was fun, no harm done, that he was in fact JML‘s granddad or something. Instead he drops likes, probably not even getting what the tweets are about, just thinking he’s being generally praised, and the stans congratulate one another on the success of him liking their posts, and will continue to bully Netflix. That‘s why people pay other people to monitor and manage their social media. He can‘t claim he had no knowledge of what went down, when he liked those posts, although I really think he just scrolls to the tweets with pictures and likes the ones that say he is the best or he should drop an album or something.

R78 it‘s not the hanging out but it‘s the total gatekeeping of anything private paired with unprofessional social media behavior.

BB’s been liking just about every damn thing she posts since way back when. And she would have been knee deep in CA at that point, so that didn’t bother him or make him change his apparent m.o. of not liking girlies’ posts if they’re dating.

He may have just seen that the original tweets were from Netflix since the blue checked tweets appear first in the blue check’s feeds, thought “oh they finally started the ship war” and decided to like a few things since they are probably expected to have a certain amount of engagement on posts about them, but didn’t see the age thing and hadn’t realized it had already devolved into something way beyond a good natured Ben vs Archie thing. I think he used to think his fans were “sweet” and maybe pre-S&B they were, for the ones that had been fans since Narnia, but this new flock of mostly gen-Z crazies seem to take it to another level.

If he wasn’t in London for Christmas, that takes A LOT of the heat out of his trip to Montana during Covid. He could’ve flown private on JH/ND/SW’s coattails, been tested & hanging with others who’d been tested. Honestly, Montana on its own wasn’t so objectionable. What was offensive AF & had everyone in an uproar was the prospect of a London—>Montana trip b/c that would mean no private jet & no quarantining post-London.

Plus CDAN confirmed their relationship in a blind after they were in Montana but before anyone found out they were in Montana and before the January pap walk so that seemed to be based on inside info that often makes CDAN more accurate than others.

R155 I think there probably would have been more. If it hadn’t been for montanagate and the CDAN thing I would probably have even believed the “source” that told People they were just friends. I know many people including me went on lots of walks with friends when that was the only way to semi safely see people. And he probably thought her calling the paps on them (if he even picked up on that at all) was ok because he could just let people think what they want without confirming anything. The covid travel definitely changed things. And even if it wasn’t from London, maybe at least the Americans here will remember that through the holidays and into January things were really really bad with covid here to the point where there were 200k new daily cases and over 3k people dying per day. That made many people change their plans for non-essential travel even if they were relatively cautious plans. So going on a joy ride couple trip to a less restrictive state where you were actually allowed to dine indoors without a mask still doesn’t look that great considering the context at the time.

If the swinging rumors about JH are true, he might have been enticed into this bad travel behavior by not only her but also Nina. If I were Nina and in the midst of dealing with SW cheating rumors I would be happy to have BB along for the ride too. Then BB, ND, and SW couldn’t handle the awkwardness of what they had done in Montana once they returned hone so they unfollowed each other. But Jack probably thought his bro was finally in a legit relationship so he continued to follow her until recently.

by Anonymousreply 176Last Thursday at 3:06 PM

R167 Afraid that isn't true. You can go back through these threads to check for yourself, but the timeline as it happened went..

Jack and Rob followed The Ho in November 2020 (when her divorce became official)

Ben followed Nina and Shaun while they were in Montana for NY's. Neither of them followed him back.

Jack and Rob both unfollowed The Ho Friday Feb 5th, a few days after Montanagate broke. This was the same night Ben deactivated his private IG account.

Either Sunday or Monday night (I believe I remember Monday the 8th) The Ho posted a couple videos of her crying in her car and then (from inside her house) saying how calling your supportive dad can make you feel better. She deleted them a couple hours later.

Ben attempted to secretly accompany The Ho to the Family Film award show (or whatever it was called..) where she was performing the tribute to her idol Ann Margaret. She was really excited about it before it happened, then was SILENT after meeting said idol and taking her fuckbuddy with her for her big moment. Uncharacteristic for her. And given that we here (technically it was a friend of ours, but she doesn't post anywhere publicly) proved contemporaneously that he was with her that night, I've often wondered if that's when Jack started to follow her again. No evidence there, just a thought.

Months after he tried his luck, (maybe late April early May, don't remember off hand..) Ben finally unfollowed Nina and Shaun, though it was the night before the story broke in the paps about how The Ho's family and friends were worried about all the lip filler she was using, because she was a beautiful single girl who shouldn't resort to that.

Jack finally unfollowed The Ho for the second time a week or two ago. Rob never refollowed a second time that I caught.

Here endeth the lesson.

R180 I speculated on that after me and the IG Sleuth had a long discussion about it. Some people said they didn’t see BB, some confirmed they’d seen him there but didn’t specifically say with her - but why else would he be there? We couldn’t figure out why she’d gone radio silent after spending days twirling round her bedroom in her underwear going on and on about it? We ended up thinking that her and BB had some kind of falling out that night. Here’s a couple of the theories we came up with:

Ann Margret, in an official video, is shown talking to JH and AM didn’t look happy. She looked like she was telling off a naughty kid. We also thought the two of them looked awkward in the posed photos. JH in bad mood = BB as verbal punch bag.

JH flirting around with various guys. BB in jealous mode = bust up later on.

BB had his ‘Chuck’ moment for whatever reason and dumped her ass.

We really just got the feeling that all wasn’t well in the Garden of Good and Evil after that night. But it was speculation - we had no proof, just a gut feeling.

And having just done a virtual con a couple of months back, he knows that he’s gonna see some of the ‘familiar’ faces he goes on about (ie read ‘stalkers’) and he’ll have to put up with them pawing all over him and attaching themselves to him like limpets!

I’m sure some of them will be convinced that their eyes will meet across a crowded room etc etc and the rest will be history. Nah dearies, all he sees when he looks at you is dollar signs, thinking to himself ‘how much longer till I can bale outta here?”

R207 I think he’d better get himself some full body protection, anything less is not gonna be enough!

by Anonymousreply 230Yesterday at 12:48 AM

The one thing with Ho and Flo and others of that calibre is that he just isn‘t Hollywood husband material. He may be pretty, and maybe he is kind to the people he likes and cares about. But those girls are there for a reason. To make it big. Or to be able to choose their jobs They want someone to pay the bills and get them places. If he went for someone like said Georgia King, or some author, producer, director, things might be different. But the pretty nasal girls want tech moguls or real estate guys, big producers. It‘s just the way they tick. In their world he is very low on the food scale.

Wonder if he will also go to Stuttgart, I feel Cindy needs a treat. She seems less engaged than usual. Too many others been liked? After all, she saved him (but also alerted him to DL and his spiral into trolling).

by Anonymousreply 233Yesterday at 1:16 AM

R233 ha She alerted him to DL?? When do you think he discovered it lol did it go unnoticed all the way to montanagate? She appears to be going, but maybe understandably quite lately with what happened in Germany. The one who organized that awkward illegible sign video after instaboobgate seems to be taking over lately. I wonder what the other S&B cast think of his fans. It’s probably either unnerving or nice that they have a fandom by association, at least when there aren’t viscous ship wars happening

R234 well she must have alerted him to the fact that instaboob (love it, btw) was a big thing here and was then introduced into twitter where it totally escalated - it did, the darklinas went groggy with it, all offering their boobs, and at some point the word predator fell. That weird Harry Burns, black heart, change of handle and sunset pic happened in direct reaction to what was happening in here. He probably knew about DL before, but then thought he has to inform us that he sees us and that all of our speculation is totally void, because he‘s trolling us anyway. At the same time it seemed important to his ego to assure everybody knew he was in Cali and not superspreading again with da Ho. J guess Montanagate being found out is terribly embarrassing to him. What he doesn‘t get is that nobody really cares about him personally, but about being right, about agitating him or his fans, about being his number one fan. He is completely interchangable in this. He only provides the pretty face and the stupid antics.

by Anonymousreply 235Yesterday at 2:01 AM

Again R234 we must not forget that Instagram is not that important to most people‘s lives if they have stuff to do and are not forced to use it for work everyday. I don‘t think his co-stars put much thought to it. The problem with Ben is that he is the chosen deity of a rabid group of teenagers. It‘s a responsibility. Even if he doesn‘t like it. He has to face the music and needs to stop impulse handling his social media.

At this point these threads are like an entertaining mix of Cluedo and Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego games so if he wants to play along that’s fine.

R237 let‘s not forget Covid, there haven‘t been that many conventions. Also, it‘s not the actor‘s who decide who goes where. It‘s the conventions and the studios.

I like how people keep telling him to go back to London. What they don‘t calculate is that he probably can‘t afford it. You get a house in the Hills for 2 million dollars or less. Try to buy a shoebox in London for that money. Unless he wants to move in with Mama or his bruv.

Westworld season 1 happened in a different era anyways. There were far less shows. Nowadays there‘s twenty new fantasy series a week plus Marvel movies without end.

He likes being “exotic” as a Brit in America I don’t think he will go back anytime soon. I think once you go to Hollywood you don’t move back to London until you can afford a house in both places since a lot of the business still takes place in LA even if you leave

R242 Netflix messed up by not finding a way to keep marvel shows and now that Disney and the other tech companies with streaming are churning out content it’s getting a bit excessive at SDCC. It seems like it should be easier than ever to find work as an actor if covid hadn’t put a damper on things.

R245 there will be some agreement on exclusivity and availability. Nobody knew when things could continue. And it‘s not as if he had a foot in every door like Timmy Chalamet or Oscar Isaac or Florence Puff. Remember, he was only a replacement casting for Logan and at first they did not want him for Billy Russo either. It‘s not as if casting directors seem to be all that into him. He is very lucky to be such a good fit for the Darkling. And that he worked with Heisserer‘s wife before who thought he was easy to handle (and probably not that expensive).

I think he‘s not very memorable to people who are not as interested in him. I watched SB with a female friend, who thought he was very handsome.

The Ho is really fascinating, just travelling and travelling and meeting people, and shouting at Air France as if nothing happened. I envy her for her conscience. Don‘t recall who asked why she would hang out with people with only 30.000 followers. In certain areas that‘s a lot already and Instagram is not life. There are millions of people who don’t even have instagram and could not care less about any of it, but they may still be investing in Hollywood productions or sportswear or whatever she is shilling. She is just having a blast and always has a real photographer on hand to document it.

by Anonymousreply 256Yesterday at 4:11 AM

R256 That was me. I asked because JH is such a blatant, shameless self-promoter and social climber, and if we surmise that BB isn’t big enough for her, then I was wondering what purpose these people with relatively insignificant IG followings has for her. I suspect she posits this whirlwind tour as “work” that keeps her relevant, will lead to new job opps. Or perhaps she’s just having a prolonged madcap divorce-birthday celebration?

by Anonymousreply 257Yesterday at 4:17 AM

R256 Agreed some of the wealthiest people especially those who aren’t working directly in the entertainment industry shun public social media all together, but they are still potential investors or husbands. Why any of them would want anything to do with her is beyond me. She’s definitely acting like a 33 year old divorcée with too much money and not a care in the world. She’s technically unemployed now since her contracts for reality TV didn’t get renewed, so she must be secretly hustling to get her self-employed opportunities to work out or she doesn’t really have to worry about it

by Anonymousreply 258Yesterday at 4:17 AM

R258 Yes! I totally think it’s hustling. Interesting point re: investors. Her businesses do not appear to be flourishing, so she likely needs a new infusion of cash or just new venture opportunities. She’s clearly no longer an actress, and the reality well seems to have run dry.

R252 I agree and disagree about Logan. Yes, it turned the trajectory of his career around, but it did steer it into a good direction? Debatable.

R260 He plays morally grey very well now; not so much when he actually played Dorian Gray. I don’t think he’s ever played a sincere, earnest character with anything other than blandness, but again… his acting chops pre- and post-2015 are night and day. So I’d like to see him have another chance. I also don’t think he’s ever been cast with actresses with whom he’s had great chemistry. Biel, Seyfried, Heigl were all yawners.

R267 ha watch out the Darklinas are going to come at you for not saying Ben and JML have chemistry. I think he’s carved out a very interesting niche and does morally gray well but I think Logan, Russo, and Kirigan/darkling have all been different enough to show some range. And he was slightly earnest in Gold Digger without being bland so I think he could definitely go back to playing a “good guy” again, but I don’t see him doing something like a super hero role. He seems to like ambiguity. But it’s weird he hasn’t been working more considering how well his acting has been received lately. Maybe he needs an agent upgrade

by Anonymousreply 269Yesterday at 4:47 AM

R267 His bland lack of chemistry with every single female really helped feed those gay rumors, though. He and Seyfried made an asthetically cute on-screen couple though, if you look past the brownface. Heigel seemed like his mom or maybe aunt.

by Anonymousreply 270Yesterday at 4:48 AM

I thought he had good chemistry with Amber Rose Revah and to a certain extent FL too, but neither of those were exactly supposed to be portrayed as heathy relationships like you would need the kind of chemistry necessary for a romcom. Everyone still talks about that bathtub scene in the punisher and I think it came across as so fucked up partly because of the chemistry they had up to that point

R271 I agree, Amber was the best when it came to that but I did not find him hot as Billy at all, looked like an elongated mouse to me. She plays it really well, I enjoyed her performance probably more than his. He just doesn‘t have that sexual energy about him that some men have. Especially not as soon as he stops acting.

by Anonymousreply 272Yesterday at 5:02 AM

R269 I think with JML it is very well cast, their features are complimentary to one another and she does the smitten and complimented girl thing very nicely. He is very lucky the Darkling came along and for his fans to petition for him to be freed from it, is utterly ridiculous. In fact it may be a great bridge for him into middle age, when he maybe has enough grey hairs and wrinkles to play something like a contemporary detective or lawyer with some gravitas.

I‘m sending her love and light and I wish her all the best honestly. We are all in the same weird vortex together.

by Anonymousreply 33918 hours ago

R338 Okay. I did not ever, EVER, need to read Cindy fucking Dakin type the words "big and wet." ***EVER***

Sorry dude, but Fuck. You. ;)


by Anonymousreply 34018 hours ago

R338 Do you think she asked him to do that or do you think he just did it? Maybe it’s just because we’ve been going through a deadly pandemic the last year and a half but I feel like the line of acceptable Ben/fan contact is a departure from what’s normal. But I’ve never been to a con so I have no idea

by Anonymousreply 34118 hours ago

Now I feel bad picking on her … let‘s pick on someone else.

by Anonymousreply 34218 hours ago

R341 I’d have to guess the touchy-feely era of the photo room is ovah

by Anonymousreply 34318 hours ago

Wait, she's a fan of people besides BB? Where does the bitch find the time?

by Anonymousreply 34418 hours ago

A lot of his fans all seem to look similar to each other. Maybe that’s why he says he recognises them.

by Anonymousreply 34518 hours ago

I think it‘s in part why he‘s so popular with the little ones. He‘s so approachable.

by Anonymousreply 34618 hours ago

R344 she is actually a very good artist so I get why she might get more interaction from the people she does fan art for than other fans and therefore maintains interest, but yeah I have no idea where she finds the time to be a full time fan. I think I read somewhere Ben’s mom bought a piece of fan art from her at some point so maybe it’s lucrative

by Anonymousreply 34718 hours ago

R344 Syl, have you never seen her profile pics? She does indeed cheat on Ben (though apparently who hasn't actually)? She's apparently been to lots of cons, and had her picture taken with lots of hot actors.

Honestly she seems to be a professional Hot Actor Obsessive Fangirl. Cheers Ben! How the hell she affords how much she obviously spends to force hot men to pay attention to and kiss and hug her for 15 minutes. . . oh wait that's right. . . she had a friend pay for her the first time she met Ben in the German con. "Nice work if you can get it! And you can get it if you trrrryyyyyyyyyyy!!"

by Anonymousreply 34818 hours ago

R348 you pay that much and they are not even taking their shirt of.

by Anonymousreply 34917 hours ago

R347 I'm sorry, you think this is a likeness of Ben worthy of the title "very good artist." I'm confused..

R343 Yeah, he might’ve hugged Flo in his vid but not sure he’d be as keen with the hordes of teens who’re going to descend on him at those cons. Although they are selling a ‘Photoshoot’ with him this time, I’m sure they previously called it a selfie. So that would seem to indicate less proximity than before? but I could be wrong.

There’s two coming up - this one in Paris and Stuttgart in Nov. With all the emerging covid variants and falling/spiking case numbers, who says they’re actually going to take place? Could get postponed/cancelled again for all they know. But at least they’ve got that dream to hold onto for the moment,

(Along with their credit card receipts for something in the region of €292 plus whatever the day passes cost. Ker-ching!!!! Where are the teens getting this money??!! I’m guessing some parents are gonna get a shock when the get their next credit card bills!)

Im also imagining the German and French riot police having to step in when the Darklina vs Malina factions come face to face!

by Anonymousreply 35117 hours ago

R347 R350 Or this one? Her earlier stuff was much better.

R351 those girls at the cons are usually very shy and timid. They are only rioting on twitter. Wonder if Malina and other factions are even bothering to spend that amount of money.

by Anonymousreply 35317 hours ago

R353 Don’t forget, the last in-person cons were in 2019. That was then, this is now. BB with nearly 2m followers - mainly teens who say they’d rip out someone’s throat if they say a bad thing about him. And I feel sure some would transfer that to IRL given the chance. Somehow I don’t think think shy and timid will be the mood of the day.

But you’re right in saying that most of them probably can’t afford it. When you add the cost of transport, food and accom on top of the ticket price, it’s probably way out of their reach. I just liked the visual impression of them bashing each other’s heads in!

R354 it‘s all he ever wanted, ye-eah …

by Anonymousreply 35517 hours ago

It’s probably a good thing Ben and Archie are so close in real life as I think the most viscous ones are in the small minority or just keyboard warriors and most Darklina/Malina stans would be happy to meet both in real life. I seem to remember the Jacob/Edward feuds of twilight being fueled by rumors they didn’t like each other and I think there were some real world issues with those fans, but I wasn’t that interested in twilight so I could be remembering it wrong

by Anonymousreply 35617 hours ago

Maybe it‘s sobering for them to meet him. It‘s very strange to see someone you only know from tv in real life. Without make up or filters. They are going to find someone who is as old as their dads. They were all shocked at his looks when he got the new phone. Ever since then he has only posted videos with a lot of softeners. But, yepp, that‘s just what you look like when you‘re forty and wear make up all the time.

by Anonymousreply 35717 hours ago

R357 eh it could go either way. I think he looks hotter now that he is older and has a few more wrinkles so he might be even better in real life. But I’m not half his age haha

by Anonymousreply 35817 hours ago

R358 I think that too, but I‘m also beyond the dreaded 4. Yet to an 18 year old …

Oh good another sign project. That turned out so well for instaboobgate (After giving this more thought I think instatitsgate was a missed opportunity and sounds better, but not sure if it can be changed now that it’s in the permanent DL record)

A progress update from our friends in the CE tumblr fandom. No idea who Scott is. I am leaning towards neither CE nor BB are dating FL

R362 Nah, I don’t think so either. It’s all just cyber-speculation (which we indulge in and keeps us occupied so not a bad thing really!)

by Anonymousreply 36516 hours ago

Well Jack doesn’t follow FL so based on the info available with Scott’s activity I’d say FL and CE are madly in love

by Anonymousreply 36616 hours ago

R264 playing catch-up here so this may be mentioned as I scroll along, but dear Benji may have whored himself out a bit during the lean years before Westworld.

by Anonymousreply 36714 hours ago

R357 I missed them being shocked at his looks when he got a new phone, please please please tell me you have links. I, too, am doing a little project for his birthday...

by Anonymousreply 36813 hours ago

R367 lol on what way?

by Anonymousreply 36912 hours ago

A friend who was a fan of another FL show pointed out that many people think FL and CA broke up in 2018, around the same time Punisher season 2 started filming. This blind (if true) says something similar. Still not sure it means anything about BB and FL especially since he wouldn’t have put her in a story if he was trying to hide her, but it disrupts many people’s assumption she was with CA while working with BB on punisher

Why do you keep flooding this site with redundant sequel threads? You're severely mentally ill. No real users on here are maxing out your threads. You're doing it yourself.

R371 Someone’s panties in a bunch over a lonely Friday night?

by Anonymousreply 37210 hours ago

R371 the site owners probably appreciate the $ for subs. Maybe they bought themselves something nice, like a pretty bag or nice shoes. How selfish are you that you don't want the site to do well! Shame on you! Now you go pray to Lady Gaga that she will forgive you for your selfishness. I know Cher never would.

Well, I may have had a little rant too many these past two days but I only joined then and it was because I could not hold back my utter annoyance anymore with somebody so privileged and intelligent to behave so idiotically.
