Ben Barnes XXXIII - For no reason whatsoever


by Anonymousreply 600November 26, 2023 9:48 AM

Is Ben Barnes white?

by Anonymousreply 1April 10, 2023 1:07 AM

If you'd ever seen him dance, you wouldn't have to ask that question in every thread R1.

by Anonymousreply 2April 10, 2023 1:11 AM

Perhaps literally just a coincidence just time, but then perhaps not? Minute 1:25 in this video.

Now just what is that song in Ella's latest deer IG story then??? Does Ben sing it round the house often amongst friends?

Something may just be going on here. I missed her story post R3 and out of curiosity checked the Los Angeles highlights. Caught my eye she was at Joshua Tree National Park on May 13th 2021. Guess who was at Joshua Tree on May 11th of the same year? Yup. Benny boy. These two might actually be a thing. Even if it's on again/off again.

Ben is going to be 42 in a few months and has never been married or had children. I still think he pings.

R4 Well, unless the OP is doing it, they both now appear to be playing the untagging game. Someone has been making posts on IG linking them as boyfriend/girlfriend since this past weekend. Yesterday afternoon Ben was untagged from the latest post within an hour (he's slipping and out of practice since The Ho???). And then Ella. . . finally noticed. . . was told. . . was pointedly instructed. . . about the posts and untagged herself from all four posts at once (that again went back days). I mean, does she regularly check her tagged page every few days and get rid of stuff she finds objectionable, or is she being influenced and needing to check it like a hawk is her life now cause that's the cost of having a new friend. Sorry, meant to say a new, paranoid, indignant friend that's too embarrassed to be publicly seen with you. Who can say!

A troll account or a genuine fan account? Because if it's a troll account I'll look at it.

R8 It's definitely a new burner account as the only posts on there are these Benny/Ella ship posts, but no particular indication whether it's trolling or just observing.

Also forgot to mention, this is a second account that's posting these ship pics. The other one either deactivated or changed names (I can't find it anymore) presumably after "getting caught." Lends probability to the 'Ben is untagging himself' line of thinking IMO.

I'd like to see this Ben/Ella ship account. Curiosity killed the white cat lol Also if this is Peyton's cat that was there at the same time as Rob lived with Ben, was the picture of Rob holding the cat taken at Peyton's house or Ella's house? Or are Ella n Peyton living together? And now I wonder about what he said in a recent interview about spontaneously going to get dessert because he likes to make people happy and she wanted dessert. Who is the "she"?

by Anonymousreply 11April 15, 2023 3:17 AM

Cuz if it was Peyton's cat and Peyton and Ben broke up but then didnt take her cat with her that doesnt make sense. When this mean it's Rob's cat? Dang it I wish I had that still from the kiss charity video that had been putting his nose up to the cat's nose

by Anonymousreply 12April 15, 2023 3:21 AM

R11 R12 Well the cat photo is easy to find by just searching "Ben Barnes white cat" into google images, as it pops right up for me on a german facebook page. (Or his SU2C video is on his IG from Feb 2020 if memory serves) And the room in the background is completely out of focus, but my best guess looking at it is that's nowhere in Ben's house. So if it's the same white cat, it's most likely somewhere else IMO.

But the interview (linked below, last paragraph was it?) you're talking about doesn't say "she." It says some friends and somebody and someone. On the other hand however, one "fun" moment from another S&B2 interview ("Harper's Bazaar Food Diaries - everything ben barnes eats in a day" if interested) shows him mentioning that "someone recently introduced him to macadamia nut milk and it's delicious.." Of course perhaps only a coincidence that macadamia nuts are native to Australia. Just fun facts!

The Joshua Tree timing is just a coincidence then? If not, these 2 have known each other for a while.

I think the background of cat pic looks like the window leading outside with the barrel shape lamp shade he had there at the time when I compare it to pics at the time. He is holding the cat in a beige cat bed and bringing the bed close to him. The time spent on this makes me feel dumb a bit.

Maybe cat was Robs after all and Ella or Peyton adopted when he moved out. I'm haunted by why Ben would include a pic of himself wearing a cat fur covered black merch sweatshirt to be in a Bandwear email blast. Something about this bothers me but don't know why. Maybe cuz ima newer fan and he confuses me.

And his sniffing, nose touching, swallowing what seems like nose drainage is odd. Like is it Coke use or allergies and why not take meds if your gonna do an intvw seen by so many. Chewing gum.on the premier of show? Drunk like dancing with fly half down with live Scary Pockets. It's like he's a mess lately

by Anonymousreply 17April 15, 2023 10:10 PM

R17 The white cat is a mystery we probably won’t ever solve!

Now I confess I didn’t pay close attention to any of his recent music show vids but I’m concerned I missed the ‘fly half down’ incident. Was that during his recent guest appearance on SP show? This I need to see!

by Anonymousreply 18April 16, 2023 11:27 AM

R18 Yeah it looked like he had gone to the toilet and then rushed on stage lol. Or his pants were ill fitting and it strained the zipper. I couldd be seeing the silver flash of something else but looks zipper half down to me! He seemed off balance too. I know he dances a bit funky like a bird flapping wings sometimes but looked to me like he was stumbling. And he was more off key, didn't know the lyrics. Apparently had them written on his hand. Why perform to the biggest crowd so far as a guest and with a song you kinda dont know. But I'm a bit harsh perhaps

by Anonymousreply 19April 16, 2023 10:06 PM

R19 Ah ok…. for posterity, I rewatched several times (with sound muted!) and I do believe it’s a metal button fly. If you look at the light reflection on the zip of his jacket it’s linear, however there are two dots of light visible in the fly area. You can also catch a glimpse of a button in one of the zoomed-in vids. And I think that’s just Ben’s awkward dance moves? - with extra adrenaline mixed in cos he’s a “Special Guest”. Boy living the dream!

Get back to acting please, Mr Barnes.

Don't worry R20, our woke king is going back to BLM activism instead. I guess either Viola Davis feels safe enough to repost, or he felt safe enough in joining in with the *countless* number of other celebrities sharing this story (days later of course, Benny doesn't follow the news on his own. Waaaayyyyyyy too much negativity that crushes his "life is full of nothing but sunshine and happiness" vibe. He only gets "news" from his fellow celebrities after the fact. Because he's a fucking CHILD.)

(Is it just coincidence that Ben and The Ho both followed Viola at relatively the same time? We all know what bipoc allies they are after all, gotta keep up appearances.. *rolls eyes*)

If anyone needs some weird ass "entertainment" for this evening. . . . After that first time Ella untagged herself from all the Couple Posts at once (mentioned in the last thread), she hasn't done any more untagging again even though Ben has continued it (with one exception he likely didn't see as it was further down his page). But just now, a new post went up tagging them both. Ben found it and untagged himself VERY quickly. Then, soon after, Ella *apparently* hid that post from her tagged page, though she didn't actually untag herself (why the change???). And she also hid the previous post from yesterday, again not actually untagging. But, she neither hid, nor untagged the post before that. But then, that post she actually left up is the same one Ben (accidentally???) left himself tagged on.

So did poor Ella get a demand from an embarrassed and ashamed Benny to hide herself from his life but is just ridiculously confused on how to proceed? Does she think she's correctly following Ben's demands by taking down all the posts but the one he left up? There's absolutely nothing special about that post, so is she just not smart enough to figure out he left it up by mistake? This is just kinda hilarious to watch!

It isn't the most flattering. Especially since he is so thin it's funny to take a picture that makes him look wide somehow. I think its edited somehow. On the right his arm looks kind of warped wavy by the bicep. The left looks like a clone tool to extend wall to cover the glassdoor view. And there's a few digitally glitchy spots. Like his friend takes professional photos. Why not just have someone do it for him. Like the basketball su2cancer one.

But apparently there are still some professionals out there that know what they're doing. And he's always been good at tongue-in-cheek or self deprecating comedy. Why the hell they didn't start with that option originally I will never understand. Man's just paying the bills at this point.

by Anonymousreply 48April 26, 2023 5:57 PM

R47 Well immediately after S&B finished he started The Critic. Then there was debate on how long that took, as he appeared to remain in London for *two* months, but there was a cast report that filming took only one month. After "London" his family apparently came to stay with him in LA (Disneyland trip), then after that was the hilariously INFAMOUS speed dial booty call with The Ho in NYC leading up to his birthday.

So did he actually sneak in BM filming in that second month in London (he spent an inordinate amount of time in London that autumn, could have needed reshoots, though beard vs. no beard, or ADR), or was it after his birthday in LA and that was why he didn't spend his actual birthday with his girlfriend. Or other. . . .

by Anonymousreply 59May 8, 2023 10:27 PM

R54 Just thinking more about the no Twitter link on this new Komi thing he’s set up. Not only has he not linked, but does he truly think that his bio warning “this is the only account that represents me” (in caps!) is going to deter the scammers?

No chance.

He purports to be concerned about fraudulent accounts and he can’t even shell out a few dollars a month to get his blue tick back? Yes, Musk is a complete money grubbing prick but even so.

It would at least help if he was verified again.

by Anonymousreply 60May 9, 2023 7:53 PM

R60 Honestly, the blue checks literally mean nothing now. Because now literally anyone, and more than one person, can pay to be verified as anyone they want to be. There's no longer a limit to how many verified Ben Barnes accounts there can/will be now because all it takes to be one is 8 bucks a month. No oversight.

But anyway. . . did you all know that Ben always has the *hardest* of die cast abs? I swear to God the denialism required to be a doe eyed fan girl is utterly staggering and absolutely pathetic. (And yes, you've already read the interview. many times *rolls eyes*)

R61 I hear you about the blue ticks and yes I know that anyone can apply for one now.

However even although Twitter has lost a lot of staff since Musk took over which affected who knows what in the background, they are still gonna check if someone comes along and claims to be a celebrity, especially one who already has a profile on Twitter.

Which is why he should pay the 8 bucks so that he is ‘the’ verified Ben Barnes on there.

Without that and by just shoving a disclaimer on his bio, he’s just another pebble on the beach.

After all, he’s bound to get burned by the meanies on Tiktok somewhere along the way and he’ll then probably want to go running back to Twitter! Lmao.

And the Ella story with cat set to the tune of Queen's 'Best friend'. It was like saying "hey ppl, he's not fucking me, he's been fwb with Peyton for years now." Im kidding . Unless Im right. The guy clearly has intimacy issues with a phobia of commitment and Peter Pan syndrome all rolled into one. I kind of feel bad for the girls he goes through.

R73 Everybody's ignoring her because no one knows who she is. Including the people who worked this party. But they also obviously have no idea who Peyton is either (admittedly, does anyone outside of Ben's fans and Hallmark movie watchers?)

My opinion only, but if this was a "group of people invited," the people hired to photograph and promote the party would bother to find out who everybody was to better promote "the stars" *cough* at that party. But Ben is the only one in question that's identified. Also there's a rotating cast of people sitting in those seats around Kendrick, but Peyton is sitting in that same spot next to Ben in every picture. Also Kendrick is the only person Ben followed that night, meaning he's the only person Ben thought would elevate his Hollywood status by knowing. No better proof than *that* to a Ben Barnes fan!

Seriously look at the pictures the fans posted, these girls around him are yooooouuuuuunnnnnngggggg.. It's creepy! Literally speaking, pedos are rather infamous for seeking out their prey by hanging out where they hang out and ingratiating themselves into the scenery. Literally the first step in grooming behavior. Famous red flag for other adults, but unfortunately not for the kids who don't know better.

So who out there is aware that the second S&B "ASoSaC" convention is apparently happening in France tomorrow and that's likely where Ben is right now? Certainly not any of Ben's fans that don't have tickets. Because, as per usual, Ben Barnes doesn't do promotion of any kind unless he's specifically getting paid for it. And since everybody already has tickets/packages, likely no more money can be spent on him. So why on earth would he ever try to get his fans that *did* spend A TON of money on tickets excited to meet him or something? Clearly they don't deserve even that bare minimum in Ben's eyes. They're lucky they're getting his mere presence, smiles and hugs tomorrow after all.

If there's one thing that can unequivocally be said, Ben Barnes does NOT do foreplay. Sorry girlies.

by Anonymousreply 88May 19, 2023 11:16 PM

The only reason I was aware was because I saw a fan comment under one of his posts that said she was so excited to be able to meet him again soon. Then when I went to her profile I saw that she was at the previous S&B convention.

I would never spend my hard-earned money to go to a convention, plus the travel and food expenses that would be involved in most cases, then wait in line with little lambs only to get a minute's worth of my idol's time and a pic. Even the panels seem like a waste of time and eventually get posted online. If it's the one where they all get to play games with the actors, that weird too. like 'rent a buncha clowns for a party' weird. I dont get fandom in general.

I'd rather bump into Ben Barnes at House of Pies and share dessert with him.

I've been off social media for a while. Has he not been posting since miami?

by Anonymousreply 90May 20, 2023 5:21 AM

R90 He posted a couple of times afterwards, about the InStyle interview/pix and then when he was at Lizzy McAlpine’s concert. Nothing about being at his pals’ gig the next night - Stephanie & Kevin, that came via one of Kev’s friends and was reposted by Kevin, who seems to have become BB’s sm secretary somewhat.

R88 R89 Tbf, none of the other cast members have posted about it either except Calahan who mentioned it on his stories albeit within a thanks to all for his birthday wishes. No post from BB for his birthday either this year.

I guess none of them really truly look forward to these cattle markets and if it wasn’t for the allegedly large paycheques, probably wouldn’t go near anywhere them. Imagine having to smile and interact with a bunch of hormonal teens for two whole days and you can’t even escape at the end of the day, you’ve got to spend another hour socialising and playing party games. Must keep the thought of those lovely big bank transfers hitting their accounts in the forefront of their minds.

As for the fans… the chance to hug and paw at their idols and the fantasy that they’ll fall in love with them at first sight seems to be worth the tradeoff… that they’ll probably have huge credit card bills to pay off for years. Or have pestered Mommy & Daddy for months until they caved and bought the tickets for them. They block out the reality that the celebs are being paid to be nice to them. However, that’s their choice and I know that some fancons are genuinely exciting for attendees - the really big cosplay ones for example.

The cost of these tickets are just prohibitive and totally unjustifiable to my mind but as long as the fans buy them, then these voracious convention companies will just keep arranging these kind of events. Empire seem determined to milk the S&B cashcow for alllmits worth… they’re even promoting a third ASOCAS next year. If Netflix cancel the show, how many of the cast will bother to attend even given the cash return… and what will the fan interest levels be by that stage?

I dont know why I bothered scrolling through a few Insta posts to see him but I give a quick glance passing a car accident too. Im seeing a lot of silly faces but not much genuine enjoyment from him. It has to be taxing emo and physi to do this typa shit, despite a large paycheck n knowing this is what comes w being in public eye, this part cant be easy.

And I have to agree that there is no way in hell he remembers any of these people. Can you imagine the thousands of people he's had to cattle call through over the last couple years? Even the ones that consistently bombard his social media, we all know ppl dont look the same in person as they do online .. if they show their face at all.. filters, retouching and angles hide so much. Ben overfiltered himself too at one point. Hell the man has wrinkles on his forehead he still filters out with the selfie cam. Anywy not trying to stomp on these kids dreams or anything. Agreeing with the fantasy opinion from above too. I blame rom coms. . There are a few girls who he has interacted with multiple times I can understand those people him remembering but theyre not at the conventions.

And it's still really weirds me out... the Shadow Daddy thing. As someone who is Hispanic and used to the term Papi, it's still gross. Your partner should be your equal not your... ewww nvrmnd. Just my opinion

And thank you for the catch up on the social media postings. Is actually kind of some nice people on here. Haha

If I were Ben and some of the girls would do that to me, I would actually start to recognise them because this is borderline terrifying.

And obsess over him while they have a rl partner. I'm overthinking this. I sound so judgemental. But I know my bf would be pissed off. And in turn he would take money and go to strip club or buy a drone. Just being silly. I make myself laugh with this one.

I wonder if the ones who posted his live shows to youtube go? I was shocked ppl flew from other states to LA then over to NY in a matter of days just to see him. Thats crazy and so expensive imo. What the hell do they do for a living? Lol

Maybe it's just her translation from the original German.. (though I enjoyed the fact that she recently followed that Ella girl. I'm sure it was solely as a supportive gesture towards Ben, right??)

(But that's not to mention all the posts that thanked Ben for literally saving their lives, so she might actually have some competition. Watch out girlies. . . .)

by Anonymousreply 100May 21, 2023 6:11 PM

R97 R98 Yeah some more mature fans involved but majority were younger, thanks to the S&B demographic.

Apparently ASOCAS2 was even more chaotic than last time, which is saying something. The usual running late, endless queuing, panels and vip ‘moment’ being rescheduled, fans being rushed even more than usual etc etc.

All that but also - oh dear - the pizzama party last night. Half an hour late, and then only lasted 30 minutes instead of an hour. With ‘little interaction’ according to one disgruntled attendee. I think it was in the region of €200 or some such ridiculous figure to attend this. And if you asked for a full or even partial refund? Nah, they don’t know the meaning of the word, sorry. The whole thing sounds tortuous to me. But people keep on buying tickets for them so obviously they don’t.

And oh… that plushie toy dog BB made such a song and dance about on his IG stories - ‘The Barkling’? The one where the fan had made a cape and name tag for it, and was over the moon that BB loved it? He took it along with him today and after using it as a prop onstage for a little while, promptly re-gifted it to another fan.

Yeah, now of course he can’t keep everything he’s given by fans at these fancons, but at least dispose of things quietly, ffs. Don’t blow it up as a big thing on your own sm, then give it to someone the next day who’s going to immediately start boasting that they’ve got it.

Not a good look for BB if he’d thought about it for two seconds - just seems to show that he’s got no appreciation whatsoever for the stuff he’s given by fans who’ve put some thought and/or expense into a gift for him? That’s how it looks to me anyway.

R103 Well recall that he already did this last year too. One fan gave him some kind of embroidered cardigan kefta which he immediately re-gifted to Jessie. Because "it made her happy so it made him happy." And everybody went AWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! at the obvious "they're fucking on the down low" evidence and nobody cared that he didn't keep it as he had the perfect cover.

Did he have an excuse this time since Jessie wasn't even there? Or is it completely obvious to these children yet that he in fact doesn't want your stupid handmade gifts, he ONLY wants your money.

The kids at those fancons might be delusional fantasists… but Ben Barnes is no less so.

“A second career?” Nooooooo! It isn’t! It’s an extended vanity project! And if it goes well he might tour? God help us. But there he is listening to the screams of the other delusionals at his fancon panel and thinking “Yes! They really want this!” Just like he mentioned that stupid meme which kept popping up on Twitter (which he’s never on now ofc) … “where’s the damn album!” Wrong on all counts.

I guess this time he’s going to try and get a record deal… a whole album would cost him mucho dinero 💰💰💰and the occasional commercial, cameo appearance and fancons are not going to cover the vast abyss it would create in his bank account. And a tour?! With all the related expenses? He’d have to move back in with his parents.

Just get back to your real job, you big fool… that’s acting, in case you’d forgotten!

Ok people

I've been lurking on here in December and went to the convention this weekend. For the context I'm a 21yo girl, it was my first convention - no I didn't go for BB - no I didn't pay for a full trip, I live here. I only pay the subscription for this month to respond to your questions if you have any.

I met him for a photoshoot and again for an autograph session. It basically confirmed what I was already thinking about him (and you guys provided context for these thoughts back in December). He has a big ego and was basically there for the money. I was pretty shocked to see him with my own eyes being overtly annoyed at young girls who did nothing disrespectful to him. They were already anxious and he was basically rolling his eyes at them. He put on quite the show with a little boy and imo really wanted to be seen by everyone being so sweet to that one toddler. Please put your judgment aside regarding the naive young girls, they're excited about a tv show they love and the charismatic cast. They're not 42. (the ones I'm talking about, at least).

The VAST MAJORITY were very nice and sweet to the cast. Girls in their early 20s, fans of the books. I have only heard of one incident regarding an actor, a girl payed an autograph just to tell him that she didn't like him 🙄 (not BB, another one). But everyone else behaved. I did meet an actual crazy fangirl who tattooed the autograph of one of the actress and seemed to live for her, but if anything, I felt really bad for her. Her life as well as her mental health must be quite a mess.

I have heard girls saying that the impressions of him were mixed, he ignored a lot of people but was nice to others... Everything was really impersonal but I didn't mind it as long as he was polite. I'm just disappointed, even though I already saw him as a bit of narcissist and kind of an empty pretty face. Disappointed for the naive girls who thought that they would have a sweet moment. He's just as bland as his music, really. Other actors really WORKED for that pay check and one of them in particular took care of everyone and made sure to offer a great experience to fans. One stayed until 9PM because she really wanted to speak with everyone (she did not have too). A few were really genuine. BB was not. He only tolerates the fangirls because he knows that they're the one who pay for his lifestyle, not his talent... I think he's frustrated knowing that he's stuck relying on them. Maybe he already knows that he only got lucky with his looks and will never have more to offer than his face and his fake smile. Maybe that's why he seems to like the LA lifestyle.

I also saw multiple times the infamous BB Germany. I saw her took a photoshoot with him and if anything, it was unremarkable. Just as quick and impersonal as everyone else. Hi - hug pose - thanks 🤷‍♀️

For the dog thingy, I girl gifted him "the barking", he used it as a prop for a few pictures and such and regifted it to another girl on the next day. Then the girl who gifted it to him came to the girl he regifted it to and took it back. The 2nd one was in tears apparently.

I was also surprised to see so many girls that I recognised from past pictures. Who follow them around at all cons. Again, objectively pathetic but also really sad. If you have any questions go for it :)

Welp he is handsome and I'm just a girl 🤷🏻‍♀️ but the overt smugness did turn me off & I already knew that there was nothing beyond the facade.

I had already read some of the threads before attending the cons so it only confirmed all of what you guys said and what I perceived from his interviews/online presence. However I was surprised to see that even a few regular fangirls, who went there ready to give their lives to him, left feeling... deceived? I thought that his fans must be pretty delusional not to see how fake, crafted, empty everything about him is. His taste. The people he surrounds himself with. Thought it must have been a harsh thing to realise for them, it was nice knowing that the irl experience saved a few souls.

What in the ever loving hell was he thinking giving that stuffed toy away! What a horrendous thing to do! I didn't know about him giving the jacket away last year. What an absolute asshole! I mean he photographed the metal piano that someone gave him after his first show IN HIS HOUSE but the cute little plushie he couldn't keep?! Even if he didt want put into his suitcase he could have mailed it home. It would make a good gift for his girlfriend, the cat lover. LOL

His actions are constantly contradictory. Always sus someone who goes out of their way to say theyr humble nice guy and feel the need to say so often they are the ones other people come to for advice. Whats that Shakespeare line? Me think doth protesteth too much. No wonder his close friends groups swap more often than underwear. He is only interested in you if you have something to offer his career or ego.

I have to say again, about out the constant sniffing and swallowing of snot during interviews. Ive only watch the clip link in the comment above, not full clips or others, and thats all I could see. If this guy isnt a coke addict maybe he is snorting Adderall or something. Hes giving user red flags out like theyre on sale at the dollar store.

Ever since he said hes going to be more himself all were seeing is a real jerk. Maybe because he is so skinny and doesnt have good body, like the gif of him about to jump in the pool from goldigger is not to my taste at all. Skinny but doughy at same time, odd low pectorals, skinny AF legs etc. Little penis for sure. Unless it's a grower not a shower. Average at best. Has a nice face yes! He was bullied as a child. Late bloomer is having a hot boy summer for the last few years so taking full advantage of the attention and now ego is outta control. Plus living in the Los Angeles bubble that keeps men in Peter Pan syndrome.

Wow. I am so angry. But maybe more sad that he is so disappointing after liking him for so many years. He popped my balloon. Lol

I want to say thank you to the person who went to the convention and said everything. I personally appreciate it. I guess I'd ask you if you can recall any words he said. Like conversation or anything. Or was it just a lot of fans saying they think that he is wonderful and him rolling his eyes and fake smiling and doing what he does and then moving on to the next. I do feel bad for the fans who put out the money and didn't get what they deserved out of it. I mean I wonder if there is any more detail about his actions. But I also don't know what to ask for. Lol

Wait. He says he already has half the full length vanity project album done? If you already have six songs in the can but have only been cooking up new music for the last few months how good can they be? I bet those 6 are covers he hopes real musicians will like so he can glom onto them and say he's their friend.

I thought some of his music was good on the EP but he didn't exactly deliver in person. Plus, he was drinking a lot before the 1st show (I was there) and lost steam as the "high" wore off. I think that's the difference between a professional musician and him. They don't lose energy from start to finish. How the hell does he think he's going to be able to do a full-blown concert and tour? It's exhausting. He totally failed when he was in front of a big crowd. The scary pockets crowd. And that was 1 measly song he barely knew the lyrics to.

Im really starting to see the fake, well-rehearsed "aw shucks Im just a normal guy act" peel away.

[R110] I would think that he has been having a hot boy summer since his Narnia days honestly. I mean, his "longevity" has always been about him being pretty. His last main character moment was Dorian Gray, wasn't it? Producers must have understood fairly quickly how limited he was, and the nature of the fanbase around him.

[R111] Thank you for responding! You're right, there's not a lot to say, really, but at least it's out there. It was mostly fans telling him that they love him and him either fake smilling or ignoring them. When someone tried something else (respectful, of course, like giving him a prop for a funny picture) he seemed visibly frustrated and I could see that some of the girls were crushed by his reaction. It was very obvious. The pics with you cost 90€ each, Ben. Wear the damn dog ears for 2 seconds and stop rolling your eyes. I saw him pout a few times. That's only my theory but at times I think he might have felt used, which I understand by the nature of these cons but also he's the reason why everything was so impersonal. Again, other actors made sure to put timid fans at ease and tailor interactions for the human being that came to see them. It is their job and they chose to come. I know that cons are weird because we're paying to meet them but some of the actors genuinely enjoyed meeting fans and went above and beyond. One of them was more introverted but remained polite, listened and looked at everyone in the eyes, at least. I have had great conversations at autographs with some of the actors that simply talked to us as if we were regular people. Ben didn't even look at me in the eyes, took my book, signed and that was it. I said that one of his song helped me when I was in a dark place last year (right before I saw through the veneer), and then he looked up with a smile and thanked me for coming (aka showing me the door). He wasn't really listening to anything the girls were saying. But it's not the stereotyped con full of sweaty obese nerds who haven't heard of showering. It was sweet young girls (shy/anxious nerds, still), who came dressed up, with their hair and makeup done. Worst case scenario they were awkward and overexcited or emotional but beyond the few obsessed BB Germany types following them around the world at all cons I cannot stress how normal and respectful the fans were. Btw she behaved too. I expected her to jump up and down and act crazy but really I don't even think that I've seen her make any other facial expression than her usual half smile, and she stayed with a group of other girls she keeps meeting at other cons. The crazy is silent in her case...

Very random information but I did get to hug him twice and the perfume he wears is generic and forgettable. Could have been called "random male scent", or "frustrated narcissist". And I saw him make a few jokes at the fans expense which again put me off.

PS: There was a gay guy in his mid 30s that came to see him. I wonder if it's someone from here lol

by Anonymousreply 123May 24, 2023 11:38 AM

R123 How did you get to hug him twice if you were there for a book signing? And BB Germany of course would not act excited, because to her way of thinking, she's just there to hang with her close personal friend Ben, as one does.

R110 I can understand BB not wanting to keep every tacky tchotchke that fans make for him, but as usual he thought he was being smart ("Look how kind I am bestowing this gift upon a fan!"), but was actually being a dumbass (doing it on the same day that the gifter was there to find out about it.)

There seems to be a very noticeable change in the way he's acting at this Con compared to all the other times. I was at the hotel Cafe show but I cannot recall anything good juicy to report. He made his rounds with all of the fans and it was really quickly. He interacted more with two fan towards the end of the meet n greet. Gave them the last of his time. The one girl, they were talking very closely with each other like they knew each other and she put something in his hoodie. So who knows what that was all about.

The more I learn about him the more I realize he has a real fear of commitment or fear of intimacy or both. Or some other such psychological deep issues. At his age for someone who has remarked about having children, in the new John mag he says "his children", anybody in his age group is getting to a point where having children would be difficult. Of course there are alternatives but someone with his ego won't go the adoption route. Maybe surrogacy. Anyway just saying this because I see yucky old dudes like Steven Tyler, Rod Stewart, DeNiro etc still having kids and all I see is Ben's future.

But keep jumping through mental hoops to justify his "Waiting and prioritizing ego and career over the thing he claims to.hold so highly... love" and other drivel like that.

He is on the Spectrum. I can’t believe I didn’t realize it before, but TBH I don’t think about him a lot.

But oh my God everything lines up perfectly

- reached the age of forty, has never married or fathered a child

- unusual motor tics he is not able to control (makes strange faces when he sings)

- terrible eye contact when talking (watch clip below on mute at 2x speed) *many Aspies can improve their eye contact when going into “fake” mode, which he does when he does junkets to talk shows, but if you catch them in “unmasked” mode, like talking about something personal like his songwriting, it defaults to normal programming, as in, avoidant

- the last part you’ll just have to take my word on, but Aspies do something with their eyes that makes them strikingly, often ethereally, beautiful. I can’t explain what it is, I have no clue, but there’s something different about them. It may have something to do with masking while acting or modeling. But they have a not-quite-earthly quality, a kind of emptiness that allows you to project whatever quality you want of them. In fact that’s how I came to the conclusion he has the Syndrome, I worked backwards, I was on a completely unrelated mental tangent thinking about Aspie eyes. (Want to identify a celebrity Aspie? Think of someone famous for having incredibly beautiful eyes. Then start checking off the above criteria.)

So, I think he’s on the Spectrum. Which explains almost everything you have been picking on him for in these threads.

So, maybe be nicer to him.

Another interesting clip, note how differently his body language seems when he is modeling from when he is doing the interview.

I don’t know why Aspies make good models. Something about the face being very passive and empty, suggesting nothing and everything.

And I am also on the Spectrum, and the Aspergers Stare is a noted phenomenon, it’s very poorly understood, but it absolutely exists. Not everyone on the Spectrum has it but many do. The eyes become clear and blank, the face muscles become untensed and they look fabulous.

R155 Why not, it's fun.. Is this proof that Ben just can't fucking stand his own fans? This was the first gig he did that he didn't advertise at all. (Or even mention after the fact with a thanks for having me note? Nope, nothing. Just Ben and his social skills.) No one knew it was coming. So none amongst his rabid fans could rush to get all the tickets and mob the venue. Given the pics that popped up, there were a few people there that recognized him, but I genuinely wonder how many there did. Verses having the same people fly across the country to see you over. And over. And over. And how the fuck can that not be creepy and uncomfortable?

Who knows, but one thing that can be said about the video of this performance is he actually looked relaxed. And more importantly, he actually sounded relaxed. This was the first time in I literally can't remember how long that he didn't commit a murder when performing a song. I cringed going into listening expecting him to suck as per usual, but then he actually didn't. Was it anything to write home about? No, he was just clearly having some fun singing a song. As long as he doesn't butcher them, I personally say have whatever fun you want, you're not hurting anybody.

Clearly he just needs to relax and simply sing a song and he's fine. Don't try to be more than he is. Don't try to add illogical flourishes where they don't belong because he loves jazz but *CLEARLY* doesn't have the first fucking clue what he's doing. Just *keep* *it* *simple*. Here endeth the lesson.

R157 Exaaaaaaaaaaactly.

I think he's licking his wounds back home in London town. Recently made so many bad choices. I'm still shocked over the Barkling. lol I feel like he's kinda... going through something? Maybe a midlife crisis a bit early. Cuz he hangs out with ppl at least a decade 1/2 younger than him and that has repercussions over time. And the friends of his own age... it's like... he's a man out of his timeline. I don't know how to properly communicate this. Sry.

Too old for the younger ones. Too young for the older ones. Not where society would be happy to box you in with the :norm". But he wants to do what HE WANTS so he has to face the consequences.

I'm not saying this right but hopefully. I truly think he needs a mature, wise, solid partner to tether him. Like a balloon can be free to be itself up in the sky but only if it's tied to something. Fuck. I'm too high for this to make sense. Goodnight. Lol

by Anonymousreply 163June 4, 2023 11:42 AM

R163 Yeah, and that's my point. People perhaps didn't know who he was, and therefore didn't go into that venue already thinking (knowing) his performance was a life changing moment of perfection that must be documented and shared and played on repeat as you lie in bed (wait, I don't want to know..). That may have been a (mostly?) unbiased, fully objective crowd. And no one there sung his praises. Only *one* person shared his performance. One video from one attendee is apparently all he rated from a possibly objective crowd.

Is it just a British thing? Cause otherwise *that* speaks far higher volumes than anything coming out of the flagrantly abused speakers that night.

Unfortunately though the interview is nice and made me laugh a few times it's the same old shit on a different day. He's really pushing for a rom com script to come his way and no longer in his villain era. If this is the new more open Ben sadly it means he's just not very interesting as a person.

R175 It's possible he'll remove counts going forward, but the thought I had was why this one and not all if it suddenly concerns you? But then, he literally labeled this one alone as a paid partnership. As in, this one was posted solely to make a company money. And it did pretty abysmally, worse than his music posts. So what is the company paying him for in their partnership? Also, what besides T-Mobile ads and cons is still paying him at all these days? So if he loses one of those two things. . . .

R176 "Hold my proverbial beer." *spit take* LMAO

I'm always scratching my head on how he affords his life and music projects to boot. I know where he lives (easy enough to figure out with Google Earth and the music videos that he filmed in his driveway. So much for his privacy concerns!) and our houses are remarkably similar in square footage, neighborhood costs etc. I don't have solar panels though. I know how much it cost to run, insure, maintain etc the bills incurred for my own house and he's in CA which is one of the most expensive places to live in the US. Then he has a newly leased e-Porsche which requires maximum auto insurance, and comfy lifestyle extras like food delivery services, plus actor related fees, dues, commissions to agents and reps etc. I mean, even the artwork in his home is worth thousands combined. That one black and gold map of London is like $4,000. And yeah he never has to pay for clothes but that's such a small part of his life. Plus the sheer hundreds of thousands it cost to self produce and release your own music with the big name producers and musicians he worked with. He had to pay them for their time as well as when they play live with him. Like when they went to NY... did he give them.a per diem for hotels, transportation, food, etc. I mean that's enough to blow my mind.

I can only estimate how much he gets paid per episode or per movie and how much magazines pay for interviews and photo sessions. But maybe he's made some high yield investments because his brother has a MBA in finances. Or mum and dad support his music or something. Who knows? But it doesn't always seem like he can afford to live the way it seems like he lives.

And of course this is all none of my business but I'm being particularly snarky and judgemental today. With a damn turnip man. LOL

It's the modern version of exchanging business cards.

In Ben's latest interview it feels like there were a lot of clues, or maybe I've just been watching too much Castle, that he is single. I feel like there were a lot of things dropped inadvertently in conversation that don't point to someone who is paired up. He uses single guy lingo. I don't think he is with Ella or Peyton for now. Maybe Ella and Peyton are more than flatmates. They kinda ping.

R199 Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Calahan apparently (obviously) just met Ella and Kevin last night, hence all the mutual follows. How could that have happened randomly? It almost certainly (obviously) didn't, but was instead cause Ben apparently (obviously) brought them all together. Why? Just to introduce all your good friends to each other? Ben makes his music with Kevin, good friends. Ben makes his tv shows and serenades/rideshares post concerts with Cal, good friends. Are Ben and Ella actually that level of "good friends" so that this doesn't feel a little too random??? But to your point, maybe Ben, like The Best Ally that he is, just wanted to host a Straight White Men Support Pride party and that explains the guest list!

But also I completely agree with the latest Zane interview making me think several times over that he was practically advertising that he was single. But two devil's advocate counter points. 1. He's a legit actor who unequivocally demands his privacy and so could *easily* and purposefully be "playing" at appearing single for an interview. And 2. How long ago was that filmed, as recall I just stated that Ella had been very quickly removing herself from the Couple Tags until a few days ago. It's not impossible at all that this just started and Ben The Coward is literally soft launching it even to his (good) friends.

R201 The friend circle jerk could just be networking. That's the most simple explanation. If it's introductions of Ella as his girlfriend, could we look to past behaviour as a clue? Like, has this happened before with previous romances?

I find it interesting this person who's making the couple pics is focusing and insisting on Ella. But he took Peyton to miami. Not Ella. And there have been 2 pap walks with Peyton right? One where she was holding a drink and they cut another dude out of most snaps and I think it was her in the park where he full hody hugged her goodbye? I don't remember exactly. If I were to speculate on him dating someone it would be Peyton.

But but but but.... single signaling in the Zane interview... could point to a recent breakup. Maybe they were friends for a long time, gave the romance thing a shot and it just didn't work out so it's not that big of a deal breakup wise. If I recall, he says something about having just spoken to Ben a day before he released the podcast? So it's incredibly recent.

He probably just went to a game. I suppose a trip to Washington isn't too out of the ordinary. He does love traveling. But he must have had box seats or something because usually a fan manages a selfie.

And apparently Ben can make up to 2.5 million a year from being in these commercials. Holy shit!

The big conventions can pay up to $250,000 for 2 days work but the smaller ones pay $50,000 for 2 days. For an actor of his experience and status that is. (Lesser knows or greater knowns pay rates varied.)

He didn't look too happy to be at the parties either. I think he would have just enjoyed watching the cars and not have to do that bit. Lol She had his her arm draped on him with her cell phone off to the side but the screen still on and he was holding his phone. You just know a few seconds before they were both staring at their phones and not even talking to other party guests. Lol

R220 I had totally forgotten about the Punisher party. You're right. This is probably a long-standing doormat situation with a friend.

R222 Agreed.

I've never commented on it I don't think but, no he's NOT a very good actor. He seems like someone who learned how to do acting on stage when he was young and never broke out of the theater style of acting. Someone who's frail ego seems to prevent him from getting acting lessons. Oh wait... lol and I hate to say it in a way because I am a fan of his but I don't even know what I'm a fan of at this point. Though I do like his music. please don't shoot me lol

He just always came off as one of those actors who tries too hard. When you're acting you shouldn't look like you're trying to act. But I've always been drawn to his looks, his mystery, even though that's unraveling now, and there's just something about him that keeps me hanging on

by Anonymousreply 223June 22, 2023 2:52 AM

He is a limited actor who can do well in some roles but not others. There’s nothing wrong with that.

Even it he was a better actor, he would have, at best, Theo James’s career, because men with black eyes are hard to cast in leads because they tend to look sinister.

I call this “mannered fakeness”. An actor on the Spectrum, short of being a Cillian Murphy or Anthony Hopkins level talent, tends to get typecast as a strong silent type (Keanu Reeves, Henry Cavill, Chris Evans, Josh Hartnett, Jamie Dornan) and stays in that lane because when they do “Act” the result is often shockingly artificial. Given how postmodern and metatextual films are now, the result is sometimes pleasing …

… Given the emphasis on naturalism in acting since New Hollywood, the Aspie tends to struggle when playing outside his range. However, they often excel in recreating the acting style of Golden Age Hollywood. Chris Evans’s best work will always be the first twenty minutes of Captain America.

I bring this up because that’s exactly how Ben Barnes acts - Golden Age Hollywood. The T-Mobile commercials are like something out of Mad Men era Madison Avenue.

Additionally I did not watch S&B but if his character is supposed to continue in Season 3, he’d not be able to book a new television role until it’s officially terminated or his contract lapses due to inaction by Netflix. He can book guest or movie roles but those are seriously impacted by the strike. He’d only be able to get cast in UK shows right now since they’re not covered by WGA.

I don’t understand where the illusion that Ben Barnes was ever a great actor came from. He has never been a great actor. He’s had a relatively banal career. He even only got Westworld because the pilot actor was no longer available. Ben Barnes’s entire career has been based on playing dark eyed mysterious “others” and past 40 those roles will dry up, and he will have to rely on opportunities like this, short of Christopher Nolan coming along and giving him a role in his next movie, because he collects Aspie actors like Pokémon.

If it makes you feel better, I bothered to watch the panel videos from the Dutch comic con, and during the Q&A portion some girl asked if he would sing something for them. And, blessedly, he answered he wouldn't sing anything right then, but he was working on putting on and performing a concert somewhere in the Netherlands in the future, he promised.

He's apparently actually working on doing a world tour then? Like for real?? What the fuck is he thinking other than experiencing a genuine mid-life crisis???

Feel secondhand embarrassment for him yet? Cause somebody literally just the other day congratulated him on Pirate Song finally reaching 1 million streams on Spotify (I think..). If you can't do the math, October 2021 was t.w.e.n.t.y.o.n.e. months ago.

R264 Or just to stir the pot for a Sunday Funday. . . . BBF has listed that pic as watching the Wimbledon finals on Friday July 14th (can't vouch myself, I don't do tennis..). Now it just so happens (or maybe it's not a coincidence!) that Ella posted a work out pic that very morning which she captioned with bulging arm muscle and then martini glass emojis. The immediate implication in my mind being that she was working out then to earn drinking martinis later.

Could it be that this was a couples trip weekend that started out drinking martinis at the hotel lounge and ended up wearing nothing but bathrobes. . . later. Ben is sitting dramatically off to the side of the tv in his pic. If he was watching the game alone. . . . Did he add those clapping hands to cover up that someone might be lying down with their head resting in his lap on that couch? Surely we all remember using stickers that way!

While I feel that the actors are all entitled to strike … did they have to do it right now? I’ve been on here lobbying for Barnes to get his arse back into acting and forget his vanity project… and now this.

I think he probably could continue with the T Mobile ads as not studio related? As I think has been mentioned before, it looks like these, and fancons, ARE all we have to look forward to, due to this strike and the fact that he’s going to have to pay out a complete shitload of money to get this album out. And two guitarists followed him back .. so.. putting another band together? And at the fancons, he can’t talk about films or studio related stuff so what has he got to talk about? Freaking music!!! 😒🥴

R268 R271 Well he's said multiple times that he is definitely working on releasing a full album as we speak (it was halfway done a few weeks ago and had a much younger, much pop-ier sound. UGH.). Unfortunately, more music is not in question. But just to bolster, in that new picture with Lizzy, they're obviously sitting across from someone (you can even see a very small sliver of the back of him in DeuxMoi's pic), so that could easily be two musical artists having a working brunch or some other official industry meeting or whatever. Just face it, music is what he's doing now. It absolutely SHOULDN'T be, and yet it is. But then, when has Ben ever made good decisions?

R269 Then I apologize for the mistake of my obviously old eyes.

So… Barnes sneaked back 5 days/3 days after Hough posted her two birthday posts, and tapped. Did he really think this wouldn’t be noticed at some point!? Or was he just trying to make sure that his European fans had already bought their show tickets before he interacted again with their pet peeve? He might be feeling more comfortable these days but if he thinks the fandom have forgotten about Ms Hough… nope. They’re all just waiting to see if there’s going to be a replay of last August.

His new bestie Kevin now follows her and has tapped a few of her posts too. Not sure if BB even knows about that - Kevin maybe just thinks he’s followed another ‘long time friend’ of BB’s, lmao. Errr, no, bro.

Still, these are probably pity taps - mixed in with a healthy dose of self preservation - so that she doesn’t fly into a narcissistic rage if she got ignored. I mean, not one but TWO ‘happy birthday to meeeeee’ posts? Another year older maybe, but still as attention-seeking as ever!

by Anonymousreply 311August 3, 2023 11:03 AM

R311 And also for the record, this picture to my eyes clearly shows the interior of a Taycan, so I'd say it's a safe bet that Benny definitely went. (And it's possible you can see a glimpse of the side of his head in the second concert video. Not definitely, but possibly.)

R312 Curious saga update? There are several IG accounts (mentioned previously) that keep tagging both Ben and Ella with posts saying they're a couple, and originally both of them would untag themselves every time. Now, Ben still untags (almost) every time (except when he clearly misses a post or two), but some time ago, Ella completely gave up and now her tagged page is full of nothing but months worth of these couple posts. Until tonight. When one of the accounts posted a new pic showing that they all went to the Vegas concert together (proof!!!). For the first time, Ella blocked all the regular of tonight's posts from appearing on her tagged page, though she remains tagged in them. But she completely untagged herself from the post with the concert evidence. Why didn't she just untag from all the posts? But more curiously of course, why did she suddenly choose tonight, after literally months, to untag herself at all (gee, let me think. . . )?

Truly, Ben's private life is like watching a bad soap opera. But they got scabs to write the drama because of the strike.

by Anonymousreply 313August 4, 2023 3:50 AM

R313 And a final plot twist? lol.. So Ella apparently didn't go to sleep last night, but instead decided to stay up and go back months and god only knows how many posts, and remove each and every Couple Post from her tagged page. Well no, let me correct that.. Each and every post *except* for the small handful that I mentioned where Ben had accidentally left himself as tagged. And that's the second time she pulled that exact same move! Is this the 'pretty, dumb blonde survives the horror movie because reasons' plot device? Why leave only those posts in particular up, are they special and meaningful to Ben? Begs investigation by the internet of course! Or maybe it's just some sort of loyal obedience as apparently Ben is the one that decides what gets left on her tagged page?? We all know how much he values unquestioning loyalty.. *rolls eyes* Man I just can't wait to see what gets written for the sequel!!

PS.. This latest installment was prompted because privacy must be maintained at all costs of course, so all evidence of their escapades must be removed from everywhere!! Well except that Ben followed this guy last night. So like, not all evidence I guess..

R314 Just adding here to what you said - Kevin’s ‘decisions decisions’ story has also been deleted!

Now, was that due to the shows mentioned on it (upcoming plans!?), the name of the hotel on the poster (too much info?!), or because it showed they were still in LV yesterday that prompted that? I think we all know WHO asked Kevin to delete it.

Ben probably looked at EM’s tags and nearly fainted after seeing she had left all those posts up for MONTHS! He's untagged 95% of the couple posts in his/her tags, it's weird to think that she's not smart enough to realize that he did NOT leave those tagged on purpose.

Since it was confirmed by a fan spotting on Twitter last night that Ben IS still in Vegas, I think it’s worth mentioning that there was a 4th person with the group at the Maroon 5 concert on Wednesday night, a woman who looked a lot like Peyton. She and Ella seem to be best buds (or even housemates?) now so it would be no surprise if it was her.

Has Ben now fully muzzled his two lil bitches? Peyton won’t need one since she’s “allegedly” not on social media .. LMFAO

Kevin has deleted story posts before. Wonder why aside from bb asking. 2 involved the same person tagged but they're just a bb fan not friends irl that i can tell. Thats weird in itself

I keep thinking when he sad smthng like 'maybe when I meet the woman I want to marry I won't be as coy and will post something,' and he never posts hanging with his friends who are girls. So stupid. Like what? Guys cant just be friends with girls? Kevin does it all the time

R321 I had the same exact thought. He followed Sam and James A WHILE ago, so more than likely they hooked him up and this trip has been planned for a while. Guess he's got it like that! Though are Maroon 5 playing a residency in Vegas right now? That should preclude doing anything with Ben (for now at least) no??

Definitely seems like a ticket hookup from new friends, bday gifts all around for the August born. I would give my left foot to see pictures of a drunk Ben in Las vegas. He's the only person I know who doesn't post while he's in fucking sin city. Even if for privacy he has delay by a day or two like now.

I dont know how long Ella has been around as far as a friend goes but Peyton has been around for a long long time. I dont see chemistry. Just pals who maybe had sex before but didnt work out.

The 4 of them are friends but I don't see or think chemistry there. If he's with anyone I think it would be Peyton I don't see it with Ella.

I would just like to wish Ben a happy birthday with this PSA which points out to him that he made his last post, announcing his mini world tour of musical concerts, one month and one day ago. And "TODAY*, just now, it finally hit 100,000 likes. It took over a month to hit six figures.

He just put up a birthday post, and I noticed it take 12 MINUTES to reach 25,000 likes, and then still 18 MINUTES to hit 33,000ish likes. Simply to say that a regular post from him will take mere minutes to reach one quarter, then one third of the total likes his music/concert posts will reach after a MONTH. Because nooooooobody out there fucking cares about or can stand to listen to his singing/concerts. He doesn't have anywhere NEAR the talent for it, and everyone but him and his literal sycophantic cult obviously knows it.

Just for funsies.. who wants to bet how long it takes this birthday post to reach 100,000? Will it blow past it or just wind up doing OK? Will Ben learn anything from this? Oh the anticipation!

It's all about priorities with Benjamin ;) And clearly maybe not being single anymore is far more damaging to all his very young fans and all.. Then again, considering the porn-adjacent scenes he's filmed in nearly every project he's ever been in that he knows his very young fans have watched over and over, maybe he has a point.. ;)

Ben has to be paid extra to keep his clothes ON usually, dont think he thought twice about those spam vids. maybe cuz brits have higher tolerance for sexy stuff - think bout the page 3 girl.

a while back i remember seeing a teen or barely 18 yo in a bikini or swimsuit posing for Ben and thought it was so gross. not just cuz she was jail bait but a stomach churning thought that men or he wuld look and possibly be aroused. these very very young girls - can you imagine the DMs he used to get before they changed the feature?! im still stuck on the girl in Kevins vid who looked really young too. dying to know who she was but sure wont ever find out lol

wonder why the person making the Ella/Ben posts is so fixated on smthgn that feels like has been disproven or rationalized that its not true. why no accounts of he an dPeyton? thats who id put a dollar on. though seemingly not tgthr anymore either. that Zane at the movies intvw was way too much talk like 'oh poor me im single' nobody is with me for doing things.

R361 He most certainly can do commercial work. Actually, SAG - AFTRA want their actors to work as much as they can as long as it is not for the companies aligned with the AMPTP. You will most likely see him do some sort of publicity for The Critic as this film is outside of those production companies.

I'm a little bit fuzzy about fan conventions, but he can do them, he just has to be careful with his wording. Apparently, Callahan did one online last weekend and just had to be careful with his wording and comment on the "book" not the "show".

Jules has not ruined his career as EVERYTHING is speculation with him. NOTHING has ever been confirmed. Those commercials keep getting made so people are engaging with them and providing Ben with a form to show off his comedic form. Again, he doesn’t care less, if he did he won’t do it. He has two potential girlfriends who make a living off the Hallmark bland brand so if he’s desperate then he can go there.

Using his recognition as an actor to go into music more fully is nothing new as far as the entertainment business goes. And what kind of success comes from it or doesn't come from it, doesn't impact me as a fan at all. It also gives someone like me with no opportunity to ever meet him in a way uncomfortable with a way to do so. I'd rather go to one of his shows and chat for a few than pay a butt load of money and wait in line for 20 seconds with him at a fan convention.

Very few of us give a flying fuck about Jho. She's in the past. And I don't know about you but I have plenty of dumb, shallow blondes in my past who I'm platonic with now.

Just because the majority here isn't singing his praises and pretending he can do no wrong doesn't mean we want to drag the guy through the mud. Do we criticize, overanalyze, gossip, speculate and a bunch of other shit that I don't have adjectives for? yes. Do we actively want to see him fail? no.

I mean. .. I don't think so

So, in a roundup of BB news - he’s confirmed he’s on tiktok (no surprise) while reminding us he’s actually supposed to be an actor. Is he allowed to do that during the strike?!

And buddy Kevin commented ‘Welcome 😈’ on his post. Good use of an emoji cos tiktok is literally The Dark Side. Good luck over there, Barnes. Full of horrible little creatures plus being spied on by a foreign government at the same time!

Also we had a couple of sneaky taps on Ho posts lately. Not even work related just her usual BS. He’s regressing and thinks we don’t notice.

Also to clarify the drew Barrymore thing because now people are saying she isn’t a scab, she is worse at this point. She is trying to make her talk show into a news program because news program like GMA are under a different contract and not effected by the strike. So all this bullshit saying drew is doing nothing wrong, yeah right. Who wants to hear the news from drew Barrymore? It is a joke. Her ego is starving, and Hollywood overall needs to get a grip. She has been victimized by the entertainment industry, i don’t know why she is going to the dark side.

And while I'm here.. The caveat is I haven't actively searched for all reviews done so far, I've only seen a bunch that have Ben's name in them. (just not that invested, oh well..) But all that I've seen so far do nothing more than mention that he "also stars in" (though one specified he had a smaller role, so less than "stars in"). The exception that I've seen is this one, the only one that does more than mention him.


[quote]The real weak link is Ben Barnes as the infatuated Stephen Wyley as his emotional turmoil comes across as surface tension rather than something deeply felt.

Though in his defense it is possible that literally the only reason he took this role was because he and The Ho had literally just gotten back together and he needed all the income he could get to be able to afford her staggeringly laughable (reprehensible..) lifestyle. *shrug* who knows, maybe his heart just wasn't actually in it. Or he genuinely doesn't have enough experience to play believable conflict because he literally runs away from all negativity so it never affects him and crushes his live, laugh, love lifestyle. Again, *shrug* who knows..

He forgot to mention gay lover in his story for Kevin. He is still liking all of JH’s vapid posts? Why? All she ever did was call back grid so she could make her ex husband jealous with the pap walks. Benny boy it was never for you, she was using you. She must have dirt on him, the allegiance is strange. Remember when she did those stories crying about calling her dad because they broke up. Then she deleted them. She loves to put everything out in public and Benny is just like yes please but also no I’m private.

Sad that review is harsh considering he took the part because it was about love and pursuing love I think and he can’t even act that right. No wonder he is single, oh and also because he is gay.

“I find it a bit cheesy and I’m too old for it and I don’t want to do it”

All the fangirls of course think he’s being delightfully goofy but the whole thing screams “I don’t want to do this!”

The new songs, still about the woman who went back to her ex husband and then when that didn’t work out because we all know he was done with her shit she got with a model who had children and called the paps all the time. Charlie was posting her on his Insta so they were out in the public. She had the chance to pick you dude and she did not. It was never secretive we saw the ski pics and them with Nina and Shaun. She opened her legs to someone new so it wasn’t like she was still hung up on her ex husband, she had a whole relationship with him. BB looks so dumb and pathetic with this old bullshit. Then that story of her telling friends in NY she can’t find anyone intelligent to date in NY, like can she even read? She was barely educated. We can all see how her face really looks on the family feud ad, her socials are highly edited and that is not how she looks. He needs to just be better.

Anyway, I'm confused because Ben USED to know how to sing. I'm not claiming he was great or anything, but one would listen to the Killing Bono or Jackie & Ryan soundtracks and they were pleasant enough. He sounded good in some of the ancient videos from his youth theatre days, so it's not just that he's singing live.

The fuck happened with him?

by Anonymousreply 464September 30, 2023 10:47 AM

R464 Keep in mind in those two examples you gave (and I agree with them), he had a director. He had another professional telling him what to do and what not to do, and he had to obey his boss. With his own "musical" stylings lately, it's all him. There are no professionals guiding, advising and chiding him, there's only him and what's in his head. This *is* Ben. Unfortunately. (Recall him telling the story from his first album that his producers were telling him what he was writing weren't real chords, but he said he didn't care, it sounded "scrunchier" to him and therefore it was what he wanted. Cause Jesus fuck take some direction Benny, they're trying to help you..)

There's also, IMO, the fact that he has this massive ego but absolutely no confidence in himself (endlessly fascinating combo if you're me). So he always strives (read: NEEDS) to make himself bigger than he is, and better than he is, and different than he is so that the most people possible will be in awe of him and love him etc etc etc. And so we get White Boy Benny the Jazz Artist. Except that *Jazz* *Is* *An* *Art*. What jazz is *NOT* is singing/inserting random notes that don't fit anywhere cause you want to sound black and cool and somehow talented. Because when you do that, *It* *Sounds* *Like* *You* *Can't* *Sing*. It sounds like you can't match pitch, and don't or can't know what note to hit, and it's because you obviously *DON'T* know what you're doing. But Benny can't help himself, he needs to bigger and better and different than he actually is and so makes himself appear talentless.

Thought about another way, what this "singing" style translates to is melodramatic over-acting. It's doing waaaaaaaayy too much and going waaaaaaayy too big when you lack both the talent to back it up and the sense and *humility* to recognize your own limitations. If all we got was natural (smaller) Ben showcasing his legitimate natural (smaller) singing talent, as you said and I agree with, it would be absolutely lovely (it always has been IMO previously). Instead the world gets *this* talentless noise. It's not music, it's just noise. Unfortunately. He needs a director. And far less privilege.

by Anonymousreply 465October 1, 2023 5:31 PM

Anyone know the last time Benny was on set for an actual show or movie? Not talking about those horrid commercials. Has it been a year now? What do these people do? He was already working for a few months and then had a majority of the year doing nothing. What a strange life. If you say practicing and writing the five songs he knows, he is basically just masturbating on stage at this point. No one really wants any of that, except the delusional who think they will be able to sleep with the demon eyed man child. Just like jules vanity projects. Even with all her personally funded cabarets no one will ever see her as a serious artist.

If Ben agrees to do another pap walk with Jules he is so stupid. The last ones were so bad and got so much hate. She is now a host on DWTS and she needs only clean press going forward. Thought it was bold for her to even comment on his post since people hate them together so much. It has been years of hate, when will they get this is not helping them. Oh I’m sorry they are twinflames, he is just waiting for her to pick him right? By mocking him in his comments just like Darren did when they were all on that yacht without Benny boy.

The Ho also changed her profile pic on Insta and so they are both staring at one another if you put their profile pics side by side and they are both in red. She initiated these games on Insta. She is already calling backgrid to show off her new filler with her dog at restaurants so I see a pap walk coming.

Maybe they are just doing this because he is going to release those new songs and you know JH thinks even hate is good. Press is press and any reason for her to call the paps. I mean how many times has she publicly apologized for the insensitive things she does. We have been saying for years he isn’t rich enough for her. I can guarantee Tyler with his trust fund has more than Benny boy. Why couldn’t he be writing songs for someone who was at least intelligent and who doesn’t constantly post pictures of their face and copy the Kardashians. Kylie got hate for that same isreal post JH posted on her stories, maybe JH should get some hate as well. Start this new album release Benny boy has with a bang.

It is endlessly hilarious every time he removes the like counts when his posts do abysmally. 35,000 likes wasn't enough on that latest one to appease his massive ego? Well fuck, typically The Ho would kill for a like count that high!

BTW, what's the over/under that the literal *only* reason she got a puppy *right* *now* is a gross attempt to make viral content to capitalize on her increased exposure from DWTS? I mean, she *always* uses her boyfriends to get greater exposure in the tabloids without their consent, but a puppy *can't* ever consent (or complain! or break up with her over it!!!). Finally, the perfect boyfriend for The Ho!! Mazel Tov!!

by Anonymousreply 491October 9, 2023 2:27 AM

She is always looking for someone or something to manipulate. Typical narcissistic behavior, of course she got the puppy as an attention seeking ploy. She pays for those articles. She is predictable in her behavior. Brooks got married and is basically doing family channel YouTube content now with his wife so JH has to compete. They have two dogs, such a happy little family. Benny boy really could be anyone, he is in the only one dumb enough to go along with her games. She just needs some man who is ok with being manipulated and benny apparently cannot wait

Cause Benny is getting slaughtered on Twitter right now for being an absolute fucking idiot Yet. Again. But best part (for now at least, you know it's not lasting just like allllll the other times it didn't last), I recognize these names. These are the girls that just went to his shows that are swearing him off and telling him to go fuck himself. And it's delicious..

And for the record, Benny decided to be a brilliant little boy over the weekend and started following and liking the posts of a known, avowed right wing conservative anti-muslim bigot that was justifying the state of Israel, let's use the term "accidentally manslaughtering," Palestinian children. Because Hamas. Apparently Benny has since unliked the post(s) and unfollowed the account (but how can everyone know whether the podcast being quoted is still in Benny's playlist?!?!? What's a fan girl to do other than forget/ignore these things and go back to stanning!) cause *OBVIOUS* damage control, as he then started following the NYT opinion account that currently had a piece saying Israel should not slaughter innocents.

BB has been waiting and thirsting for years at this point. Now he is a coward in the corner sulking. She used him and it’s all he writes about, all his musical creation comes from this fairy racist who couldn’t receive his love. She clearly could receive charlies dick oh I mean love and now Michael’s dick/love and who else knows. oh even Bennys on that NY trip when he stayed at her place.

JH did black face, her secret emoji Benny and her used was the fairy. Benny boy was the lion. They would hide those emojis in their Instagram stories to secretly show their love to one another. I can imagine that was her idea. Ben was in his 40’s hiding little emojis in pictures because that is a mature man ladies and gentlemen. Now she is flaunting her Hawaii trip with her new bf all over socials talking about how life has been so good. Benny boy has gone into hiding. This all makes him look so sad and is embarrassing. A solid career turned into secret emojis and love songs to a narcissist. No wonder he is single, what woman would take that seriously. Peter Pan syndrome, I’m sure his therapist parents taught him all about that.

That baby in his story was that size back in February. Billie moon, the baby, obviously is not that small anymore because babies grow. Which means that image he used in his story is old. Why is he using old pics? Trying to deflect from the twitter hate with a pic of a baby that he thought no one would find, when clearly it is his drummers baby. They found it. Benny this isn’t helping you. This won’t make the haters stop. Weird commentary about babies considering so many have died in the conflict everyone is sending you hate over. Kind of insensitive. So many parents won’t ever be able to hold their baby again and you are flaunting how you get to do that. What is he doing? Where is Becky?! Also JH seems sad, love that. Michael doesn’t want to go public. Only fuck her as long as no one knows. Winner!!

His IG follower count dropped precipitously yesterday after he posted that baby picture. But I don't know any women who wouldn't be deeply and extremely insulted that a man would try to manipulate them that openly (but then, I'm an adult. And I hang out with other adults. Whereas Benny's alllllways chasing after those MUCH younger than he is. Can't imagine why..). Because all it takes to woo a woman back is flowers or a picture of a baby amirite! Then everything is forgiven, right! Cause Benny's a true feminist right!! But then he went and one-upped himself today. His follower count plummeted. Almost on par with how much it drops when he posts his music. So you know it's bad. Keep going Benny, you're obviously on a roll..

His TikTok’s are already cringe and this last one was just the worst, he thinks he is really going to get another job from a fan casting. Embarrassing. He is lucky that worked one time. It’s HBO, they are not stupid like Netflix which is the Walmart of television. We have already gone over here how toxic the choose love organization is, idk why he still does that. Benny does not grow, he is an old old man pandering to the teenagers. His pitiful love life isn’t even interesting. He needs to find a smart woman, not Jules, and settle and start selling that. The rockstar isn’t working and the actor has fizzled out. He needs to now be the committed guy and grow up. That is why Chris Evans got married, he is pivoting to family man to save his career. Ben take notes.

Looks like the new album is coming. Maybe the lyrics won’t be as bad, pirate song anyone, now that he has realized the Ho used him for her own advantage. I’ll bet five songs. We know Benny can’t really write more than that. Even with more than half a year of unemployment under his belt. Let’s hope Jules doesn’t manipulate him again, her favorite pastime, considering Michael has disappeared. Interesting he will take her on a trip to Hawaii and do a tiktok video for her and take pics of her basically naked on the rocks but won’t say oh yeah that’s mine. Almost like he didn’t know the crazy until he saw the crazy. Good for Michael in a way, respect for that man.

Also BB was talking about how he wants to do a Vegas show around the same time Derek had his show. Derek made jules career and could be helping Benny boy. Weird to help your sisters fuck buddy but they a weird family so who knows. He did start following jules friends on Insta. Michael just took her to Hawaii last week, she already out in the streets with her old friends with benefits. Michael didn’t doesn’t deserve that. She just jumping from dick to dick. Allegedly.

This may have been a party where Ben was actually Kevin's plus 1, if Kevin is the one who had friends there that invited him.

I will not be surprised if they do a pap walk for his next album considering it is still all about her. Benny has only just pinning on the sidelines for her waiting for her to be ready for him.

This is what jules has done to old Benny boy. Made him think being a dick is how you win the game, when really it has just made his fans hate him. That’s why there are 30 threads here. How many times does Charles how to tell us he is a good guy. You only have to do that with the assholes pretending to be the good guys. As long as he is hanging out with the Houghs he will get shit.

I don't know what Becky's living situation is right now but a breakup could explain why she was given a job by Ben, and now JHo, at a time when she needs the money.

Oh wow! What a coincidence!!! Ben got in so much trouble last month to the point that still to this day, if he's ever mentioned at all, it's largely derogatorily for being a racist, zionist, pedophile pig everywhere I look. And he got in that trouble because he liked and started following Sam Harris. A very well known right-wing AVOWED and very vocal Islamophobe who regularly says reprehensible things about *all* Muslims. (Can't imagine why hate crimes are on the rise and 6 year old muslim boys get stabbed to death 26 times because "all muslims must die" according to people who listen to Sam Harris and/or others like him) It's literally what he's known for. It's literally what he gets paid a lot of money for.

But no fear girlies! He unliked and stopped following Sam back then! So all is immediately forgiven now, right! Everyone can go back to blindly believing Ben is a good and beautiful person despite all the evidence, right!!!! Choose Love, am I right?!?!?

Except, despite the fact that all clues point to the high probability that Max and Ben have known each other for a while (Max and Rob and other mutual friends definitely have, and Max has followed Ben for a while, etc.), Ben finally decided to follow Max back today. And what a COINCIDENCE that Max is advertising Sam Harris' pod casts tonight!!! So Ben doesn't have to follow Sam himself, he can follow others who advertise and link him instead. How convenient! Now Ben can double down as being a racist zionist pig, but indirectly so it's hidden from the brainless girlies who still love him amirite! He's still gets to be a soooooo beautiful person all full of love for everyone that way, amirite! He says he is at least!!!

But what am I talking about, it's just a coincidence. Again. And again. And again.

I don’t think they are together otherwise why wouldn’t he be at that party, I mean Tyler flew in from NY. Or maybe she and Tyler will be at BBs album release party and that will be their hard launch. Who knows. I think it is sad to hide for years if they are together. It’s been so long, just own it already. That guy mentioned above he is also friends with Jules so don’t forget that. BB is now in her circle. Remember Chuck and how she manipulated him and made him lie to everyone about how they were on good terms, she is just doing it again with BB. Took Chuck a decade to actually be honest about how crazy she is. She knows what she is doing. I feel bad for BB so much wasted time he will never get back playing these games.

She is his sun. So in three years, fairy lady jules picked at least that we know of 4 guys instead of BB. BB was single writing songs about her waiting. She was just doing whatever she wanted, calling the paps at every turn. Is that a win my guy? Or is that pathetic?

Well we know why she was surfing. He is such a goober, the voice does not match the face. Benny is definitely hotter.

R556 where did you find that picture? I think it has disappeared, I can’t find it. Keep on it, I know Michael has kids and a house in Rhode Island because he says that in that interview, but for some reason he really doesn’t want people to know they are together. Michael made jules delete the tiktok of him splashing in Hawaii. Benny should know so he stops embarrassing himself and if he thought rumors with him and jules would boost his music it won’t. He will just loose fans.

R562 Just checked and the IG story is still there. The splashing video is still online too. It's on Jules IG page tho, not TikTok.

Arielle and Matt did the Halloween party Benny and Kevin went to. They didn’t just meet. Benny is really trying to convince us they are together with these follows and jules is full of fucking Mike at Disney with Becky there to document. Becky looks like she is gonna get in trouble in that pic. I don’t think Becky will be working for Benny and if she does he is a bigger simp for jules than I thought. Just letting her take over his life completely. He really is pathetic.

Also who did this? Is this why she posted that Insta story yesterday.

I don’t know if this is true but I did hear that they will sometimes give a show with six or eight episodes multiple seasons just so they can say the show didn’t fail. They know it will be not a game of thrones and 16 episodes or 12 episodes is usually what it would cost for one season. They are paying for one season technically and then have the clout of well look we did two seasons so it didn’t technically fail after one. Also those popular slots can be bought on Netflix as part of a PR package with Netflix so it can appear your show is doing well. You can also buy for them to inflate numbers in PR. Only watched the first ep of the second season and the writing and acting was shit so I turned it off. Won’t be missed.

Nah, sorry dude. Today was Rob's birthday and Ben's been there with him. Hilarious of course that Ben once again films things so you think he's somewhere completely alone. Did you know he went to the Hozier concert with Kevin? Not from Ben's perspective you didn't.

Though apparently Rob's been back in LA for a while given that Ella followed his new private account many days ago. Strange then that Ben's absolute bestie Kevin didn't make the cut for access to the inner sanctum?? But then, given what my instincts (not definitive proof, only many decades of experience of the raised hairs on the back of my neck always turning out to be right) tell me is going on behind the hidden veil of Rob's sudden need for privacy after deactivating and then completely wiping his main account, I sure as fuck wouldn't want access either.

But then of course, does Ben not want access too? Or is this proof he did make a new private account and literally only allows/follows other private accounts so he can never be found again? Hmmmmmmmm..

R572 (part 1/2) I'm just looking at the other people he's invited into his private account, and what some have been posting lately. I'm remembering what Rob was posting before he deactivated his public account and what he recently started following otherwise. And I'm thinking there's nothing but rampant Islamophobia and rah rah Israel is incapable of doing anything wrong cheering going on in there. Again, it's a private account, I do NOT have proof, but my spidey senses are screaming danger right now.

If anyone's a believer that all Gazans are part of Hamas, this post isn't for you (or actually, maybe that's exactly who it's for..), but do please seek help. Hamas is rightfully so considered a terrorist organization because it regularly commit acts of terrorism. First and mostly against fellow Gazans, and secondly and with much less success against Israelis. Anyone who wants to justify their actions as resistance, first re-read the first half of that sentence, second look up who propped up and installed them as the next leadership of Gaza and WHY, and then decide that for yourself, that's up to you. But their actions 100% fall under the legal definition of terrorism. AND. The actions of active IDF members, retired IDF members now known as regular Israeli civilians, and *especially* the settlers in the West Bank, 100% fall under the legal definition of terrorism against Palestinians. But it's only normalized as unquestionably OK for one of those sides. I personally condemn terrorism On. Both. Sides. I do not only condemn muslim based jihadism. Both sides. I condemn the Israeli government. I condemn the IDF. I condemn the settlers, whose religion teaches them they are supreme above all others and entitled to all the land of Greater Israel (that's Iraq to Turkey to Egypt to Saudi Arabia, they want all of it as what God promised them. And they're what the Israeli govt fully supports.) And I condemn Hamas. Because they are all legally terrorists and therefore exactly the same. Well no, there is one difference.. One side is predominantly white.

If anyone is saying, how could you be on a site for gay men and not condemn all muslims? They throw gay men off buildings just for being gay! Yes, that is 100% true, some muslim men absolutely do that. But is it all muslims? And more importantly, is it only muslims? Cause I've read Leviticus, the original source in the bible that taught people to hate all LGBTQ people as morally repugnant. But wait, Leviticus is in the old testament. Meaning homophobia began in the teachings of the jewish religion. Should we hate all jews because they all hate LGBTQ folks? And what about places like Uganda, that recently passed a law that criminalized gay sex with the literal death penalty? Is Uganda muslim? No, Uganda is overwhelmingly christian, and they passed that law because christian evangelical fundamentalists known as The Family, through their fundraising from BOTH democrats (including Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi!) and republicans at The National Prayer Breakfast, lobbied the Ugandan govt HARD to make it the law. Should we hate all christians because they all hate LGBTQ folks? And should we hate all Americans because they all voted in that BIPARTISAN, nearly 100% govt leadership supported homophobic endeavor? Or maybe, just maybe, it's FUNDAMENTALIST EXTREMISM, be it of a religious and/or political flavor, that any good person should condemn and speak against at all times. Because fundamentalist extremism always has one goal in mind. Political Supremacy. Be it white supremacy, christian supremacy, jewish supremacy, muslim supremacy, pick a color and/or religion, I condemn all supremacist views and people.

by Anonymousreply 574November 19, 2023 8:58 PM

(part 2/2) And though the Zionist movement did not start out as a jewish supremacist ideology, that's what it's largely become in more recent history unfortunately after the largely rich, elite jewish people of Europe moved to Israel to build an oligarchy there (the same desired oligarchy as EVERYWHERE else in this world amongst other groups), drenched in propaganda that justified every action because to not allow every action was anti-semitic. And it is the zionist movement, through their henchmen in the IDF, and with the full unquestioning bipartisan backing of the american govt, that is carrying out a legally defined genocide right now. I condemn any and all genocides no matter who is carrying them out. I condemn the genocide that the nazis committed against the jewish people, and I EQUALLY condemn the genocide that the zionists are committing against the palestinian people. But maybe when Israel is finished wiping out Palestine and exterminating all its people (oh I'm sorry, Israel calls them animals and vermin, my bad..) they can name their success The Final Solution.

And the fully admittedly small clues of Rob's recent choices tell my spidey sense that he does not condemn israel's actions. That he does not condemn genocide. That he in fact fully supports what's happening to the palestinians. And if that's not true, maybe he could come out and condemn it like the rest of the Jewish diaspora is currently doing. But he's not. Instead he made a private account to go hide behind. And of course, that makes me wonder if Ben supports all this too. Especially considering so many of his long-time friends *appear* to support it. But maybe Ben should go back and follow and like more openly islamophobic accounts on his public account again so he can officially and openly come out as a racist and a bigot. Or maybe he won't ever do the bare minimum and openly condemn genocide with the rest of his diaspora brethren, and instead just continue to hide behind his Choose Love bullshit and secretly root for human extermination only behind closed doors. Where he does evvvvvverything else.

by Anonymousreply 575November 19, 2023 8:58 PM

What we have seen from benny boy is that he only does the bare minimum and will only say something when it is trending. Where he can hide and therefore never have to take accountability. I hope Rob will learn one day how misinformed he is if he holds those beliefs. I have a feeling one day in the future all these people will say how wrong this genocide is, they are just cowards. They have gigantic platforms so that is a shame. I mean jules did post a pro isreal story but it was the same story Kylie posted so idk if she was just trying to be trendy having no idea what she was doing. Obviously that looks bad, but if she does hold that stance almost all of Bennys new friends are in her circle. You are the company you keep. I will never get it why they can’t just say genocide is bad. Ben loves Hozier and Hozier has been very vocal about his stance, you would think that would inspire Ben. Benny is a follower always, never a leader, never a true man, a coward wanting to be popular like a child. Hopefully one day he will grow up.

Wait *that's* who he unfollowed last night?!! What's this now?!?!? Like Coral said, this is so out of character I don't know what to think yet, but I'm laughing to the point of cackling regardless. Enjoy it while it lasts, ya know?

R578 It's not in question whether he looks good. The regulars here have seen him look exactly like this many times before as it's his go-to poses/seggsy looks for every single magazine photo shoot (along with most Hollywood actors these days). But is that what this was?? Was he being interviewed here, cause how did he get and release the photos so early? Or is this just our idiot Benny completely randomly pretending he's special and in a photoshoot at an active racetrack cause he is desssssssperately fucking single and advertising it. Cause who in their *right* mind does this?!?

And what was the point of unliking every single post? Just how much time did his thoroughly unemployed for OVER A YEAR AND A HALF ass spend unliking last night? Why? That's being clever???

It's not that it IS clever, it's that HE THINKS he's being clever and erasing his paper trail or something. Ben is an airhead who fancies himself to be the smartest man in the room. The "Ben Can Do No Wrong" contingent will point to the history wipe as evidence of his virtue, so whatever he's about, it'll work on 95% of his fanbase.

And as you pointed out, he has nothing better to do.

Interesting that tiktok post about their timeline relationship that also had jules blackface pap walk and Benny boys last tiktok got the lowest views ever. The trolling ok tiktok does work apparently. Then jules started following more people on tiktok after that as well. So it wasn’t just Benny at the top. Maybe Michael is worried this drama will affect his business, no one is really calling jules out when she isn’t playing games with Ben. Maybe there is a new girl he is preparing to launch. Since jules is all loved up and he was fine having his music defined by her, but since he looks pathetic now he needs to rebrand. Growing his hair out is part of that. He for some reason thinks jules has it locked down how to do socials which she doesn’t she is just vain. He followers are paid and her engagement is dismal. All her pics are professional pics and Benny is now trying to be an influencer it seems? Idk hope he can get another acting job so we can not see all of this. He is so old to be playing these games.

Deuxmoi only posts paid blinds. She does not fact check, she has been wrong wrong so many times. She is corrupt and not accurate. Who did this? It’s not true, Michael for her locked in. She hasn’t even done a pap walk with Michael and that is her favorite thing to do. She calls the paps like every two weeks especially when she is in NY. Nothing, we got an event pic that wasn’t widely shared and nothing else. Michael has kids and an ex wife and maybe a Rhode Island estate, he isn’t doing this hollywood bullshit. Benny is looking real pathetic if for ten years he was always the friends with benefits loser at 42! Maybe that is why the unfollow. Also shadow and bone is bad, Deuxmoi must had been paid for that one as well. If ben is paying her then he needs to stop. Digging that failed acting career hole even deeper.

I understand why Ben isn’t speaking up regarding the Palestine conflict. Did you hear about the scream actress who just got fired for posting stories about supporting Palestine? Susan Sarandon was just dropped by UTA her agency for being so vocal in her activism. The entertainment industry in punishing people and Ben hasn’t had a real acting job in a while. Maybe we can get off his case a bit with that, I’m sure he is terrified his career could be over.

Saying a genocide is bad is not antisemitism by the way.

by Anonymousreply 588November 22, 2023 2:08 AM

R585 Yes truly, where everyone should be focusing our collective energy is on keeping literally the most privileged people in this world comfortable and utterly bereft of any sense of responsibility or basic decency. The only cost for that is literally millions of murdered human beings. But wait, actually they're just brown savages, so who the fuck cares, right? Cause on the other hand, there's a fuck ton *more* money to be made otherwise.

I've never heard of that actress, but I'm absolutely sure she's every bit as rich and powerful and privileged as all the Hollywood elites that are staying deathly silent right now, right??? Just like I'm absolutely positive that all the rest of the Jewish diaspora that stand almost alone in their worldwide furor are also all rich and perfectly comfortable in life, right??

But the "funniest" part of staying silent cause you're antisemitic if you don't? It's supposed to be an antisemitic trope that Jewish people control everything. And yet, allllll the evidence for the past six weeks factually shows otherwise. Because Israel, a foreign country, has declared that saying "Palestinians are human and shouldn't be wantonly murdered" is an antisemitic belief. And people all over the US and the rest of the world are literally getting fired and cancelled for saying that Palestinians are human. The Israeli government is demanding and dictating the policy of governments and businesses all over the world under pain of being labeled antisemitic. But it's a false trope that Jewish people control everything?!? There is NOTHING that has made being Jewish in this world more deadly dangerous than what Israel is doing right now. Because when you claim that literally everything is antisemitic, then NOTHING is antisemitic. The word has lost all meaning. And it has lost all power as a warning. Saying or *doing* anything at all that actually is antisemitic can now just be considered crying wolf. That's what Israel has done to the Jewish diaspora. And that at least plays a part in why they're leading the cry against this genocide.

But what do the rich and privileged like Ben care? They literally live far above us. They're well protected, while the rest of us are easy pickings. Though isn't there some old quote that starts 'first they came for. . . ' Don't know why that popped in my head..

R582 Well maybe he's too clever by half then.. Cause this motherfucker has gained three THOUSAND new followers since he unfollowed and unliked his universally hated Ho last night. Are we to believe there's thousands of girlies out there who were literally just waiting for them to "so obviously break up" and then word spread and now everyone's coming back cause he's safe to worship again? Cause if these girlies are that unbelievably dimwitted there is literally no hope for the intelligence of future generations. Please get off your screens and open a fucking book so you might actually learn something morons.

Or is this actually Benny's attempted rebrand, and since his followers have been steadily plummeting by the tens of thousands for months now, he's going to try and buy his new followers just like the still love of his life he's turned to completely hiding from his brainless girlies?

by Anonymousreply 590November 22, 2023 5:06 AM

He totally bought those followers. They are bots. Although Michael and jules must be serious. She was just in NY, flew back for DWTS, now she is flying back with her brother so he is meeting family now. Wonder if she met his kids and then said Benny we have to unfollow each other, your fans are calling out my racism and my martial affair far too much. So of course she had to get rid of Benny boy. He is just sitting watching documentaries at home alone like a pathetic loser. I agree music must be on the horizon soon, he changed his profile pic for like five seconds. I know he said next year but if he is selling merch of course that would come during the holiday season. Get you beloved be loved or whatever love laugh love middle age white mom bullshit he is pushing.

Benny didn’t stay by her side and therefore she is going to make a passive aggressive post using an old pic from months ago thanking those that did stay by her side (they know who they are) This girl is delulu, crazy town. She used Benny so much that his acting career imploded and he now has to do cringy commercials and merch drops for his mom pop music, full on influencer style. Sponsored posts for the worst tasting beer of all time, is a career low. All while she calls the paps for every other dude she is with. Piece of work, I hope Benny is getting out of the Kinrgy brainwashing land that jules has created. No wonder she is with an investment banker she is trying to become Tony robbins, he sexually assaulted people. Cannot wait for the escaping Kinrgy guides addition. The turn over is fast, not one guide has stayed since they started. I wonder why? Toxic workplace? Will we know because if NDAs? Can someone start that? I’m curious.
