This week’s blind item, courtesy of Rajeev Masand, is a little complicated. It took me a couple of minutes to really know who this is, but even when I knew I wanted it not to be true as I really liked this actress. I’ll be revealing my guesses at the end of this blind, but you can try guessing before you check out the supposed answers.
Of Inflated Ambition
This mild-mannered actress who just scored her first big blockbuster has been in the news over the past few months for her alleged romance with a top director, who happens to be married. The couple is believed to have ‘got close’ while filming their last movie together, in which, surprisingly, she didn’t have what one might describe as a particularly meaty role.
Some gossip rags have labelled her a ‘home-breaker’ for driving a wedge between the filmmaker and his wife, but the actress has so far maintained a dignified silence on the subject, despite news of their affair having become fodder for local tabloids recently.
Lately, one has heard the director has left his wife and kids, and is living in with the actress. The young lady, described frequently as the kind of girl you’d take home to your mummy, is believed to have made heads turn at private filmi dos recently for flaunting an all-new curvaceous look. Word is she’s had some work done on the—ahem—‘top shelf’, and there’s talk that she’s also apparently got her lips plumped.
