Before everyone starts shaking their jowls, refer to this post in which a few people think Robert Downey Jr. is one of four people using the anonymous account “Himmmm” to reveal blind items. Note that the person commenting could very well be a random person who knows the ins and outs of Hollywood pretty well.
In either case, we’ll never know because Himmmm signed off forever the other day in a blind item thread about a longtime actor who slept with an underage teen. But not before accusing Kirk Douglas of brutally raping Natalie Wood and then laughing and mocking her as she stumbled out of a hotel room years ago. To be fair, this rumor has been around forever but it was just that. A rumor. The comment has since been “removed by the author.”
[This story] concerns one of the biggest male stars ever, and one of the most beloved female stars to ever live…
One day she was invited to meet with this movie star about an upcoming major role. This man was a legend already, and was very powerful. … Thinking [s]he herself was powerful and savvy, she accepted the invite. In his hotel room. She never saw it coming.
Without even discussing the film, this actor — drunk already — began making a pass at her. She politely declined, and excused herself. He wouldn’t have it. He literally threw her down, slapped the hell out of her, and ripped her clothes off. He shouted obscenities at her, continually punched and held her arms so tight he left scars and bruises.
He raped her repeatedly, spitting on her, and did permanent damage to her body. She was bleeding everywhere, with a battered face. She passed out. When she came to, the actor was still in the room gloating, and told her to come see him tomorrow night and he might give her the role. He laughed at her as she fell down, her legs so wobbly and weak. She gathered her torn clothes, and tried to walk out of the hotel and to her car – blood and semen running down her legs and bruises already forming on her face.
She could barely make it back home in her car. She wanted to kill herself, so ashamed of what happened. The damage to her psyche was permanent, and haunted her forever.
…Her mom said she must have made the actor mad and offended him. They called a doctor, who took her to the hospital secretly to have her treated… The studio knew, and did nothing. After all, the star actor was a money machine. … She grew into an amazing woman with a legendary career. But she never forgot, or forgave, and never got over what happened.
She never named the star actor publicly, but her friends and family knew the truth. Even after marriage and kids, if she saw this actor anywhere – she would almost convulse and cry. And worst of all, Hollywood and the world continued to honor him, pay him, and treat him like a king.
Today, he’s still alive and barely holding on. But those who know the truth are still hoping and praying he will rot in hell for eternity. That all his good deeds and donations will never mask the truth…
So when the time comes, and the now 95-year -ld Kirk Douglas, the superstar actor, finally dies, there will be tributes and honors about him. Just remember that he is a monster who never repented, apologized, nor showed any sorrow for destroying the lives of others. Especially the life of that young beloved actress named Natalie Wood.
Himmmm then strongly implies he’s Robert Downey Jr. That or the anonymous commenter saw the story linking him with RDJ and just ran with it. He even provided the phone number of Wood’s daughter as proof. Granted, the number could be found in a few searches online.
I worked with Natalie’s daughter on a film in the late 90s. Like her mother, Natasha is an amazing woman and amazing actress who is a great person in every way.
I know a lot of you have speculated that I’m some nobody nut-case pretending to be someone else. Pretending to be a movie star when in fact I’m not. I think that’s kind of hilarious. But if you want to call Natasha and ask her the name of the male actor she co-starred with in a movie with Heather Graham, then go for it. Call her at home if you want to but be polite. Her number is: ac 310 Four [last six digits redacted]. And remember, she’s NOT in on this so don’t blame or interrogate her.
Gawker notes that RDJ was in Two Girls and a Guy with Natasha Gregson Wagner and Heather Graham so theoretically it could be possible that the two got close and Wagner vented to him about what happened.
Anyway, this all makes for a good story I guess. Not like these accusations haven’t been around for ages and not like they haven’t been published at one point before. Too bad we’ll never know the true identity of Himmmm though. Unless Redditors get their hands on this. In which case, it’ll take about 10 minutes before we find out who this guy is.
