Blind Item

[Blind Gossip] This is a story that you have heard before, but it’s about an actor that you didn’t know was in trouble. He has a successful career, but he has fallen prey to the partying lifestyle.

It’s now interfering with his work. He shows up late or not at all. He is unprepared at work. He is constantly drunk or hungover. He comes to work unwashed, wearing the same clothes from the night before, reeking of booze and smoke.

When a young star is falling apart, their team faces a difficult decision. Do they confront him and try to get them help? Or do they pretend that nothing is wrong so the star doesn’t get mad at them?

Opinions were split among this star’s team. His agents – who were afraid of losing him as a client – chose to do nothing. His publicists – a reputable firm who have worked with him for many years – did the brave thing. They set up an intervention, consisting of the people who love and care about the actor, to try to get him to seek help.

The young actor got wind of the intervention… and promptly fired the publicists. The agent kept his job.

In case you were wondering why no one intervenes when a star is in trouble, this is why. The ones who genuinely care inevitability pay the price.

Not going to say who I think it's supposed to be, but I think you know.

For a second I thought this had been posted to emma_stoners and was terrified that it was about my baby Andrew Garfield.

most people say its Zac

he just got a new PR person not long ago and some in his regular crowd don't have the best reputation

This melodramatic bullshit right here.

and the funny thing is, he ditched her basically right after he got done promoting TLO in which he was nothing but a gentleman through how many cities? unless you count him slicing his hand open apparently while cutting fruit. he even was game through their lame ass twitter experiment.

so how they get she wanted to do an intervention cause it was interfering with his work, idk. except to say consider the source. plus this is gina, afaik she bitches but she doesn't intervene.

and since she's left, he's gone to cannes, done work on 'at any price', gone to the office multiple times, gone to events, went on a family vacay, been nice to fans, and he just did an interview/photoshoot. he's clearly off the rails enough to need an intervention. yeah zac parties, for sure. but at this point, it isn't like this insinuates.

Zac Efron, who seems to drink and party a lot. I’ve never heard of it affecting his work, though. But he recently left his publicist Gina Hoffman and went with Melissa Kates at Viewpoint."

This is most likely Zac Efron. He recently parted ways with his publicist who was with him from back in the day…HSM days. I don’t know if this intervention stuff is the cause but I am under thethe split was not amicable. He continually looks like a bloated mess these days and he has some very shady friends. Something is up with this guy and he needs to change course or he will end up another sad statistic in HW. No he will never end up a Charlie Sheen but he will wreck his career and will end up doing B/C movies forever. He hasn’t looked healthy or genuinely happy since he broke up with his ex-girlfriend."

some people think it's rpattz though so who knows

zefron fans, chill. it's speculation & not the end of the damn world. zac's lucky that people care enough to write blinds about him, true or not it creates speculation & publicity

if what we're seeing of zac in candids is him frazzled and hungover then i want to know what it would take to make him look bad cause he's still hot as hell

lol @ "not going to say who I think it is" and then the tags.

And not really buying it either tbh.
He never really seemed "trainwreck-y" enough for me.

This blind item is clearly about Zac. This is basically a copy of what Star magazine wrote about Zac last week.

But I don't think this story is true. Zac was really professional throughout The Lorax and The Lucky One promos. There was no need for any sort of "intervention". It seems Zac has been partying quite a bit recently but I highly doubt his partying has affected his work.

Zac did drop his PR team after TLO promos, and I'd rather believe it was due to their incompetence. A lot of people were complaining about it during TLO promos. Since then, Zac has hired a new publicist who has bigger clients and more experiences.

sweetchild92 12th-Aug-2012 07:03 pm (UTC)
.... can abuse alcohol and still be professional/presentable. C'mon people.
pseudovirus 12th-Aug-2012 07:07 pm (UTC)
until it comes to where you're showing up to work with rum on your breath

i mean, yeah, the majority of people are able to drink and live their lives just fine.. but it does become a problem for a lot of people. i think the 'abuse' part kinda prevents you from being professional/presentable..
