Out of the Past

This pretty actress has had a remarkably successful career in Hollywood – from TV to independent films. She met the man of her dreams and he happens to be one of the sexiest leading men onscreen. His chiseled physique makes all his movies memorable. She married him without realizing he changed his name to cover up his unsavory history. The guy had a drug problem, has spent time in prison, and there were child abuse charges involved. He was hustler on Santa Monica Blvd when he arrived in Hollywood and one of the men he slept with helped him get his first break. He clicked onscreen and never looked back. His sweet actress wife knows nothing of his past, and he hopes she never finds out.

    Not Ryan Phillipe. Checked out his bio: Born in New Castle, DE, has 3 sisters, dad is a chemical technician & mom works in pre- &post-natal care. Too detailed to be phony.
    So who’s considered a “sweet actress” these days? I thought maybe “sweet” would refer to movie titles. Since Phillipe is eliminated, we can’t count Sweet Home Alabama. Anything else?

    Someone guessed this on the newsgroups: Patricia Arquette and Thomas Jane, who was in The Punisher in lead role.

    I don’t think Thomas Jane could be described as, “one of the sexiest leading men onscreen.”

    Banderas and Travolta don’t have wives that did both TV and indie films. All of Melanie’s films were for mainstream studios. And John Travolta has a famous family. His mother was an actress. I think that Patricia Arquette and her husband fit the blind item better than anyone else.

    I don’t think that we’ve hit the right one yet.
    Banderas – Born in Malaga, Spain. Dad’s a cop, mom a teacher.
    Duchovny was born in Manhattan – dad is a playwright and a publicist for the American Jewish Committee. His mom is/was a teacher, and he has an older brother & younger sister.
    Grrr…who IS this mysterious couple????

    Heath Ledger – I can’t find many details on him other than his DOB & where he was born. But, Michelle Williams was on Dawson’s Creek and then in movies. Although they aren’t married, she refers to him as her “husband” and he refers to her as his fiancee.
    Possibility?

    The blind item says they are married. Tom and Katie are not married. Also, the man in the blind item is likely someone not as famous as Banderas and Freddie Prinze, whose lives have been examined over and over again. I still think the best guess is Thomas Jane, who has starred in some major movies, but still isn’t well known.

    Is anybody actually reading the blind item? It says the couple is married and the husband is known for his “chiseled physique”. That automatically excludes a lot guesses here.

    While not all of the pix that I’ve seen of Thomas Jane, there were some where he looked like he had a “chiseled physique”.
    Out of the ones listed so far, I’m leaning toward Thomas Jane.

    Thomas Jane was in “61″ with Barry Pepper, where he played Mickey Mantle.
    and also he was in “The Sweetest Thing” with Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair
    and also he was in a sexy film with Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie called (oh no something about “Sin” now I can’t remember the title.
    I always thought Thomas Jane was really great looking, very sexy and yes in some movies he was chiseled.
    But i am not saying he’s part of this mystery in any way.

    Brad Pitt??
    He’s chisled, all his movies with his chisled looks are indeed memorable.
    His sweet actress wife was Jennifer Aniston, and she’s done TV and indie films.
    They may not be married anymore, but who knows what he did before he became famous?
    And he’s old enough to have a “past”.
    it would have to be a guy in his 30′s or 40′s to have the “past” that this guy has.
    and if it is “Braddie Poo”, he probably does hope no one ever finds out.

    Heat Ledger I thought so
    right away. Lucky producer wonder how much he had to pay. Maybe Brokeback Mountain hit a little closer to home than he would like to admit. But I love Michelle Williams she hit paydirt durig the filming looked like a goddess at the Academy Awards.

    No i don’t think Patricia Arquette is pretty either.
    In fact she’s gained alot of weight. When she was young in the 1980′s and they were pushing her career, she was about a size 3. No matter what, “Thin is In” in Hollywood.

    If he spent time in prison, then why is this a blind vice? why not just come out and say it? I’m beginning to wonder about “Blind Vices”. Either come out with it or make it less generic so we’ll know that it’s not just made up.

    i’m with you 12:14… we have to consider the possibility that janet is just trying to be sensational to get “ratings”. makes you feel like a jerk when you fall for this kind of bull. we are probably just being used by her… if the guy has a police record, its public record.. whats the big deal.. she would have the scoop of the year… she is full of you know what just to get us guessing. im done.. she has no credibility any longer

    The blind item says he changed his name after a stint in prison. As far finding the “public record” in what state would you begin your search? Besides, lots of actors have “public record” secrets. For instance, Janet Jackson was married for 9 years without the press knowing.

    Brad Pitt was detained for mooning from a car back in the day. Hardly worth even mentioning. Pitt never changed his name and he is extremly close to his family. Plus, Pitt is an international star. We all know he was never in prision. Please.
    People don’t consider or call Angelina Jolie “pretty” they use words like “sexy”, “gorgeous”, “stunning”, “beautiful” etc.
    Pretty would be used to describe someone like a Jennifer Garner

    Thomas Janes quote on IMDB “”In an Indian film that I did when I was 17 years old, and that’s how I got into acting. I was living in Maryland, and some Indians came to Washington DC looking for a blonde kid to appear in an Indian film. It was like a Romeo and Juliet love story between a white American and an Indian girl. They wanted me to stay in India and I did another film over there, they gave me an apartment, a car and I was an Indian movie star at 17. But then I decided to return to America, studied acting, did a lot of theatre.”
    Maybe he left the country after juvie or….? Check out Marylands database?

    It’s not Thomas Jane and Patricia Arquette. The article says the actress went from TV to Independant films. Patricia went from Independent films (True Romance springs to mind) TO TV (Medium).
    If the article hadn’t said the couple were married, I’d say Tom Cruzeazy and Katie Holmes.

    12:01, it says the actress has a career that ranges from TV to indie films, not that she went from TV to indie films. “This pretty actress has had a remarkably successful career in Hollywood – from TV to independent films.” Read that again. So it could be Arquette/Jane, although I don’t really think it is. The “gay” movie he did was The Velocity of Gary, with Salma Hayak and Vincent D’Onofrio. Interesting flick.

    Kids, I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s Thomas Jane. I’ve been hearing stories about him for years that are very similar to the setup in the BI. As a matter-of-fact, I was pretty shocked when I found out he was marrying Patricia Arquette.

    I would say Katie and
    Crui-azy…
    She got her start on Dawsons Creek and then did tons of indie films
    She met the man of her dreams with Tom, and she has said that
    he changed his name,he was born Thomas Mapother IV,
    the only part that hangs me up a little is the physique
    it could be him, but i dont know if he is known for that

    reese withersoon’s man has the nordic chisled look. he has the kind of face and body that Hollywood pervs really go for.And all that nonsense about him having had an affair with a women is just a coverup. he probably fell back into his old hustler ways and was willing to sleep around with men of course to get back some of his imagined star power and wifey found out and didn’t need him any more.
