The legendary Geena Davis has written a biography, entitled, Dying of Politeness: A Memoir. Let me get this straight: overly polite, gorgeous, and a working actress since 1982? Obviously, 66-year-old Geena has enough horrifying #MeToo tales to fill a book. And that’s exactly what she did. Last week, Geena jumped on the Bill Murray Is A Creepy Prick bandwagon when she accused the actor of inappropriately using a massage device on her while making their 1990 film Quick Change. Then, this week, in an interview with The New Yorker, Geena revealed that her Tootsie co-star, Dustin Hoffman, gave her some advice on how to shut down Jack Nicholson’s sexual advances. Awww, good for Dustin! It’s always encouraging to hear about a male ally who– wait, you say 85-year-old Dustin Hoffman has also been accused of sexual harassment? Goddammit.
I know they say you aren’t supposed to beat a dead horse, but what if the horse is actually undead and not really a horse at all, but more of a moldering human corpse with a lot of snappy one-liners? This is the question the folks at Plan B Entertainment, Brad Pitt’s production company, asked themselves before deciding to go ahead and flog the shit out of Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. But you know what they also say? You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink, especially if he’s dead. But according to Screen Rant, after spending more than 30 years in The Neitherworld Waiting Room (sometimes referred to as “development hell” by Hollywood types), that green lady finally called Beetlejuice 2’s number, with Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder both reported to be on board.
Despite the fact that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are one teeny tiny step closer to ending their custody fight, they’re given a reminder that it is possible to be a famous actor and effectively be able to end shit once and for all. Case in point, Geena Davis, who after three and a half years of fighting with her estranged husband, has finally settled her divorce.
Of all the celebrity divorces of 2018, probably the last one I thought might turn dramatic is the divorce of Geena Davis from her husband of almost 17 years Dr. Reza Jarrahy. The most drama I could have predicted would be Geena showing up 4 minutes late to her lawyer’s office to sign official split documents after scrambling to find a parking spot. Instead things have gotten a bit dramatic, because he might not even be her husband!
TMZ says that Geena Davis’ husband Dr. Reza Jarrahy filed for divorce on Tuesday listing “irreconcilable differences.” According to the documents, Geena and Reza have been separated since last November. Also according to the documents, Reza didn’t list their real names, instead he chose to go with Rob Doe vs. Veronica Doe (although TMZ has confirmed it’s them, and not just Rob Lowe with a sinus infection).
Geena and Reza got married in September 2001. They share three kids together, 16-year-old Alizeh and 14-year-old twins Kian and Kaiis. This was Geena’s fourth marriage. She was previously married to Richard Emmolo, Jeff Goldblum, and director Renny Harlin.
Reza, who is a surgeon in L.A., has asked for spousal support, as well as joint legal and physical custody of their three kids. But if Geena thinks she can ask for the same, she might be out of luck. Reza has requested the judge block any requests for spousal support from her side. I know surgeons make serious money, but to be fair, there’s no way Reza is pulling in the kind of cash that Geena is. You could literally turn on the TV right now and have a 75% chance of finding a channel playing Thelma & Louise (or if it’s October, a 100% chance of Beetlejuice). I’m pretty sure she gets a decent cut of that. If not, her next call better be to her manager. Get those residuals Geena.
