    I think Gawker just polled their readers, or the commenter's or something, and said Franco was the majority choice - they didn't officially name him outright.

    Is no.2 Paris Hilton?

    Where would Vin get that kind of money? His career has chilled for quite some time.

    Downey would rather spend it on drugs.

    I was just reading through some old threads, passing time at work, and found one post that referred to a website called The A List, which outlined dirt/gossip on tons of celebs.

    Juicy celebrity dirt!

    The Richard Gere entry made me think of blind #1 (specifically the part in bold):
    Gere, Richard. Former husband/merkin to Cindy Crawford. Closet case, although the gerbil-stuffing rumor was spread by Stallone. Likes it rough--very rough. Supposedly a regular at the ER of St. Vincent's, where he brings in a few handsome young men every year with ruptured colons. "A big bottom." "Dumber than hell. Narcissistic in the extreme." Or so I'm told. Linked to Kim Basinger, Barbara Carrera, Priscilla Presley, Julia Roberts, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Uma Thurman, John Travolta, and Tuesday Weld.

    The GR post was from 2007, not sure when the website was started. While I find it hard to believe that Richard Gere would show up to the hospital with someone in that condition, it’s an odd coincidence that the situation somewhat matches up. St Vincent's is in New York, and the blind is from the NY Post. The blind is from August 2008, Nights in Rodanthe was released in Sept 2008 -- could he be our hunk in a summer movie?

    The A List has been around a good 10 years, though, so the timeline doesn't match up with the currentl BI.

    I guess I read it differently. The blind seems to refer to a recent occurrence, and the A List entry says it's happened over the course of at least a few years. Even if the A list entry is 10 years old, I don't think it's impossible that this could still be happening.

    Just my .$02!

    James Franco: the “gay rapist” blind item pinned on him was “so offensive”

    James Franco jumped the shark big time when he flopped at the Oscars earlier this year. The material was crap but James didn’t seem to try at all, nor did he ever take responsibility for failing to entertain us. Instead it was everyone else’s fault: his co-host Anne Hathway was a “Tasmanian devil,” he “played those lines as well as well as [he] could,” and then got indignant that people dared question his performance. Well it’s more of the same from Franco in his latest Playboy interview. The material was bad, he was trying to play the straight man to Hathaway, and he warned producers that it wasn’t going to go over well. I understand that take on it, I mean I basically said the same thing when I first reviewed the Oscars, but the fact that Franco still refuses to take even a small amount of responsibility for his performance really bugs me. He’s all about pointing fingers and playing the victim while Hathaway has been nothing but gracious about it. He could have come up with a way not to sound so above-it-all by now, but he hasn’t since he’s incapable of seeing it any other way.

    On his crap showing as Oscar co-host
    “It’s hard to talk about because it’s like assigning blame — not a fun thing to do. For three or four weeks we shot the promos and the little film that played in the opening,” he says. “In the last week, when we really started focusing on the script for the live show and did a run-through, I said to the producer, ‘I don’t know why you hired me, because you haven’t given me anything. I just don’t think this stuff’s going to be good.’”

    “I just didn’t want to fight anymore, even when they said, ‘You’ll come out as Marilyn Monroe. It’ll be funny.’ Me in drag is not funny,” Franco continues. “Me in drag as Cher trying to sing like her is a thing. That didn’t happen, so then I just didn’t want to argue anymore. I was going with their program; I wanted to do the material they gave me, not be one of the many cooks doing the writing. There were a lot of cooks who shouldn’t have been cooking but were allowed to. There were some cooks my manager tried to bring in, like Judd Apatow, who wrote some very funny stuff that wasn’t used.”

    Still, he gave it his best, with his low-energy performance actually functioning as an intended foil to Hathaway’s highly spirited effort. And when it was all over, the initial feedback was positive.

    “After the show everybody was so happy, and Bruce Cohen, the show’s producer, hugged me and said, ‘Steve Spielberg just told me it was the best Oscars ever!’” he reveals. “As far as having low energy or seeming as though I wasn’t into it or was too cool for it, I thought, Okay Anne is going the enthusiastic route. I’ve been trained as an actor to respond to circumstances, to the people I’m working with, and not force anything. So I thought I would be the straight man and she could be the other, and that’s how I was trying to do those lines. I felt kind of trapped in that material. I felt, This is not my boat. I’m just a passenger, but I’m going down and there’s no way out.”

    On the “Gay Rapist” Blind Item that people try to pin on him
    One blog thread that he can’t abide, though, is the one falsely connecting him with the infamous Gay Rapist blind item that appeared in the New York Post in 2008.


    While Franco quickly debunked speculation that he was the anonymous perpetrator — the alleged victim himself insisted that he didn’t know him — it didn’t stop blogs from running the story — and worse.

    “Then Gawker picked that up and did this ‘Gay Rapist’ story that was so f*cking offensive because I have friends who have been raped,” he remembers. “They did a very classy online reader’s poll asking which actor who had a big movie out that summer had beaten up and raped his boyfriend and then paid him off so it wouldn’t go to court… My lawyer called them and said that it was completely untrue and to take it down. They said, ‘Well, we’re just reporting what the New York Post told us. If James wants to make a comment on our blog, we’re happy to report it.’ It was a choice. Either let this thing build and become bigger and bigger, or just let it go and let them be the petty scumbags that they are.”


    [From Playboy via The Huffington Post]

    I feel for Franco over the gay rapist rumor. Everyone did assume it was him and he got tagged with that label online for quite a while. (And I don’t blame Gawker for just stating what so many people were already talking about. Here’s more on that, along with a potential other solution to the BI that is possibly fan fiction.) It’s just that when Franco gets so indignant over everything, when he acts like such a douche and goes on attack mode whenever people criticize him, it’s easy to believe the worst of him. That doesn’t make it fair, though.

    The readers of ONTD have some info (I'll see if I can find it again) that it is Will Smith. The clues would be a stretch, at least in my head....
