Blind Item: A Kind TV Star

January 22, 2008 by  

I think it’s always nice to spread the word when stars to nice things for others, especially when they aren’t accompanied by a press release from their publicist telling the world how kind and selfless their client is. But this time around the star spreading the kindness is a mystery. Read on and share your guesses on who the star could be.

Blind ItemThis is a B lister. I almost think of our actress as the epitome of a B lister. She has done television and films and is probably more of a B lister for the television, but she does have some great film roles. Anyway, this week at Sundance. Oh, I guess that will narrow it down some huh? At Sundance this week, our actress was walking down the street and spotted a teenage girl who was sitting on a backpack, shivering and didn’t have anything on but a sweater and jeans even though it was after dark and well below freezing. Turns out the girl had come out to Park City to hang out with a guy she barely knew but he blew her off for some other girl, so she had no room and no place to stay and didn’t have the money to change her return airline ticket which was for three days in the future. Our actress didn’t really believe the girl at first but then the girl showed her the airline ticket and her i.d. That was enough for our actress. She took the girl to a store and bought her a jacket, and then took her back to her hotel for food and fun. The actress called some friends over to cheer the girl up, got her some dinner and then had everyone take turns calling the jerk who traded her for another girl. Our actress changed the return date on the ticket, paying for the change and even upgraded the girl to first class for the flight home. She let the girl spend the night, got her out to the airport the next morning and gave her a few hundred bucks.

Any thoughts on who this kind TV stranger could be?

    What about Lauren Graham? I saw her in a picture with Matthew Perry so I know she’s at Sundance. It sounds like a very Lorelai thing to do.

    My guess would be Eliza Dushku… I think she’s at Sundance.

    I nominate Rachel Bilson. She seems like the epitome of a B-Lister to me. In the good way.

    What about Mischa Barton?

    For some reason the first person I thought of was Olivia Wilde, mostly because I know she’s at Sundance, but I can only think of one movie she was in…

    I actually read the website this item originated from and many people thought the answer was Sandra Oh from Grey’s. This blogger frequently likes to give hints in his BI’s and when people read the “Oh” they thought it was a good clue. Plus, Sandra’s had some memorable parts in films like Sideways and Under the Tuscan Sun.

    However, I do think Lauren Graham could fit the bill but I don’t see anyone like Mischa fitting the part because I don’t think she’s done anything memorable in the film world.

    I immediately thought Lauren Graham too! Will we find out who the person is eventually?

    I say Jennifer Love Hewitt.
