    Default CDAN 06/05/12--She was never the same

    This actress used to be on the cusp of A list. It was right there for the taking. Then she lost it and it all happened because of a part. A part that she thought would take her from sexy to Academy Award. Our actress never had a problem working. She always worked. She just wanted to be taken seriously. She felt like after a few years of lead roles that all directors and producers wanted her for was her body. She had been on enough casting couches to start a furniture store and the only thing that kept getting her those roles was her willingness to be on the couch. She knew as she started to get older there would be younger and more attractive actresses that would also be willing to roll on the couch so she wanted more. She finally figured out how to get off the couch. Get a role so good that people would take her seriously. She was going all in on the role and decided to go method. Really method. When she was cast she started doing everything her character would do. She lived that life for months before filming. Sex, drugs and practicing what would be the clincher in the movie. She was ready. She was her character. She nailed it. She did exactly what she set out to do and received lots of praise and awards. Nothing big, but she had been noticed.




    The problem is that after the film was finished, she could not escape the role. Not that she was typecast, but she had involved herself so deeply into becoming the person she was playing that she kept living the same life. She goes from guy to guy just like her character. She loved living that party lifestyle which she convinced herself was work before but was now just an excuse to still stay in that one moment where people took her seriously. The character became such a part of her life that when she read for directors she would end up acting just like the character. As a result, with the exception of two or three decent performances, the past decade has been a wasteland of forgettable roles. As she starts to age now, the casting couch is back in play again. Even though she has B list name recognition and is probably still a B- list actress she finds herself in the same position she was before, but just can't seem to ever get out.

    I'd say Brittany Murphy, but she's dead.

    CDAN blinds have become so generic they could be almost anyone. Blinds are supposed to have clues!

    I immediately thought of Halle Berry and her role in Monsters Ball. But she is an Academy Award winner and the BI implies that the actress did not get one for this role.

    Jack Warner told all the other producers she was hot to trot.

    First person I thought of was Heather Graham and her rollergirl character in Boogie Nights.

    Although it is kind of a generic blind that could probably apply to a lot of actresses.

    The popular guesses at CDAN are Heather Graham in Boogie Nights or Sharon Stone in Casino.

    ^ good point. and Graham didn't really play leads pre-Boogie Nights, just smaller roles.

    It's CDAN though, so what can we expect.

    Heather was one of the leads in Licensed to Drive, and the first Austin Powers. And she dated Edward Burns for years, so I don't know if the jumping from guy to guy applies.

    Sharon Stone was married for a long time too, to Phil whatshisface, that got bit by the bearded dragon.

    It was the second Austin Powers, and it was after Boogie Nights though.
