I am not much for following celebrities, but this blind item seems to be everywhere lately.
Full blind items and clues at link below.
The first thing that popped into my mind was Charlie Sheen, is there anyone else this could possible be about? I’ve seen others suggest Robert Downy Jr, or Leo DiCaprio but they don’t seem to really fit or do they.
Sizemore has always been a character actor not a star. Sheen was well regarded as an actor back in the day with Platoon and Wall Street not as much any more. He is and was certainly a star and much bigger than Sizemore.
I can think of a couple of other A-list names who allegedly fit the category of “bad-boy Tinseltown star” but given that the tabloids have a habit of predicting so-and-so has six months to live, then waiting a year so we can forget what they said, then predicting it again, I think I’ll pass on this particular game.
I saw that article yesterday on the Drudge Report - and thought Charlie Sheen before I finished the article. Even if you can argue he’s not an A-List movie star, he definitely has as much recognition and “fame” as A-List movie stars.
Just out of curiosity I googled “Charlie Sheen HIV” and got a number of hits going back a few years about strippers accusing him of having it. Hearsay sure, but lends some weight to it being him.
Even though it hasn’t been true for quite a while there is no denying that he was once an A-list movie star.
ETA: And before his meltdown a few years ago he was certainly an A-list TV star. At the time he was the highest paid actor on TV on a top rated show. He also reportedly got paid $200 million for doing 100 episodes of Anger Management.
It would be a little premature to consider DiCaprio middle-aged, wouldn’t it? He’s only just turned 40…
This blind is clearly written to implicate Charlie Sheen, and it’s almost certain people will jump to Charlie Sheen as a guess. But it almost seems like a publicist plant to make people think and worry about a guy who’s not doing much these days… megastar? With lots of fans? And multiple friends?
Any outside chance it could be Clooney? He’s certainly a bigger megastar than Sheen, and maybe such a diagnosis would explain why he’s recently settled down? Just throwing it out there as a suggestion.
