Finally, some gossip on Datalounge!

by Anonymousreply 1June 20, 2024 5:29 AM

Eddie Redmayne will win his second Oscar for playing Daniel.

by Anonymousreply 2June 20, 2024 5:31 AM

Eddie in Lincoln drag!

by Anonymousreply 3June 20, 2024 5:32 AM

Explains retirement. Sad. Coke once upon a time? Bruce, Wendy, now Daniel - is that our missing link?

by Anonymousreply 4June 20, 2024 5:33 AM

But does Redmayne have any right to play either Lincoln or Day Lewis, considering he can't really identify as them, R2?

That's fucking awful. That's what I'm thinking, r4. But I didn't think he was a big partier, was he?

by Anonymousreply 7June 20, 2024 5:35 AM

I'm sure it will be his wife's former assistant soon, if this is true.

He looks completely out of it at OP. And she has the face of caretaker.

Aphasia doesn't come from drug abuse.

That’s very sad if true. I know dementia doesn’t discriminate, but I always am surprised when it happens to people I thought were intelligent and remained active.

by Anonymousreply 16June 20, 2024 5:51 AM

I don't think this rumour is true, as I genuinely think assistant like keeping their jobs, if there really is one.

Nevertheless he looks like his kids took him to Moncler for a shop so he could be a "cool dad", but no one over the age of 15 should be wearing cargo pants unless they're for work.

by Anonymousreply 17June 20, 2024 5:52 AM

I call BULLSHIT! He does not have Aphasia but Daniel is clearly on the Spectrum. The yellow pants are a definite sign of Autism. Lincoln wore yellow pants. Lincoln was Autistic. Reason why Lewis was able to play the role so well. Like to like people ! DUH!

Thank you for the scoop, OP. It's nice to see that DL still has some of that gossip that made it world-famous. The "Marcia Cross munches carpet so she married her investor" scoop was getting really, really old.

Incidentally, I was not impressed by DDL's Lincoln performance.

Talk about a waste of a third Oscar.

Let me tell you how stupid some of you are.

It took me ONE SECOND to see that the majority of this thread is the OP replying to himself.

And yet, some of you just accepted it.

What is wrong with you? Are you all autistic or something?

This is not true. But I wish Donald Trump had it so why wouldn't have to hear his demented bullshit every day.

by Anonymousreply 34June 20, 2024 12:00 PM

Aphasia is a symptom and not a disease. In the case of Willis it is due to dementia although I don’t know the type of dementia. Bulbar palsy (which is not dementia) can cause aphasia.

He was quite articulate presenting Scorsese with an honorary award last January.

The reason we don't get good gossip the way we used to is because everyone wants money. Instead of sharing gossip with DL they call TMZ or some other outlet to get paid.

As for DDL having Aphasia, I don't think this is true. I was reading about him a few years ago, and he c an be eccentric, and do stuff like work as a shoemaker for a while, or WTF ever, and he seems to enjoy a very simple private life, ergo no assistants. Now ifhe has some project cooking, he may have an assistant for the duration, but not permanently.

That pic in OP post is old.

Yellow pants coz he's from Europe, they wear red pants, green pants, yellow pants, of all color. Euro trash!

My father had aphasia for several years after brain surgery, and that motherfucker kept all his marbles until he died twenty years later. Aphasia means you lose the ability to process language, and there are different types and levels. Dad couldn't speak or write at all, but he could understand the spoken and written word. He could spell out words with his fingertip, and his primary form of communication was tracing letters on his palm. He also had a pocket sized dot matrix printer with a keyboard that he used to tap out messages and print on little ticker tapes. He had a little laminated card to hand to clerks and waiters that explained his condition and to assure them he wasn't retarded.

His speech returned eight to ten years after his surgery. Some of my siblings insist to this day that he faked it for some or most of that time just to be a pain in the ass.

by Anonymousreply 56July 9, 2024 3:24 AM

Sheesh. He looks fine, & physically/neurologically well enough to use crutches properly.

If he has dementia, with an onset of Aspasia, then that probably between him, his physicians & his family.

I highly doubt an assistant who is a professional would leak this.

Huh, R57?

by Anonymousreply 59July 9, 2024 3:55 AM

I don't mean to sound flip when I say this because aphasia can signal a number of neurological disorders, but maybe he's pretending to have aphasia so he doesn't have to speak with most people and can just shut them out somewhat politely and be left alone with his circle. He's been eccentric enough in the past that maybe...

What's he look like today? That photo of OP's is over a year old (May 2023) and was accompanied by video of him walking down the sidewalk alone at a fairly brisk pace. Then, he reportedly met up with his wife, and they went out to lunch. Since then, GQ showed him out with Bradley Cooper in October 2023.
