I guess it was about a year ago, give or take a couple of months that I told you that this A+ list mostly movie actress was in danger of being replaced as this A list director’s muse/part-time hookup.
The frequent co-star of the A+ lister has been spending a lot of time talking up the woman he calls his girlfriend.
The girlfriend has not acted much, but the director has been open to the idea because he feels like the A+ list actress screwed him over and was using him just to get roles that would get her critical acclaim.
Well, if the director has moved on, our A+ list actress needed to find a new director who would want to cast her. She set her sights on a different A list director.
So far, things could have gone better.
Oh sure, the director and the A+ lister seem like they could work something out professionally and personally but there are just a couple of obstacles standing in their way.
The first obstacle is that this director has already established a relationship with another actress.
There is not the same, umm, personal level of closeness there would be with our A+ lister, but the other actress has a long and storied relationship with the director and she does not want that to come to an end because she also cares about critical success.
The other hitch in the giddy up is this A- list almost television actor/comedian.
He has been crushing hard on our A+ list actress for a long time.
He dumped his long time girlfriend just to have a shot at our actress.
The thing is, he is in the friend zone but is in denial about it.
He thinks if he keeps himself front and center in her life that our A+ lister will change her mind.
That he can convince her to move from friend zone to something else.
Obviously, a new relationship with someone else will damage those possibilities so he has been trying everything he can to sabotage it all without actually sabotaging all the hard work he has put into what he hopes will be more than a platonic relationship.
Meanwhile, circling back to the first director, now he is having second thoughts about giving up the A+ lister and has been making noises about them working together and maybe vacationing for a few weeks together.
That in turn has led the A+ list actor to get upset and a lot of drama between himself and the woman he calls his girlfriend.
