Olivia Munn Charlie Rose Had to Go ... Women Need to Stand Together

11/21/2017 12:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Olivia Munn has a message for all the women speaking out against sexual misconduct -- keep it up and stay strong ... because it's making a difference.

We got Olivia at LAX Tuesday ... shortly after Charlie Rose was fired from CBS and PBS amid sexual assault allegations. She weighed in on that, as well as her own allegations against Brett Ratner.

As we reported, Ratner is suing one of his accusers, and Olivia had some words of encouragement for her, and wants to make sure that woman knows she's not alone.

Matthew McConaughey Straight Fire On 'The Beach Bum' Set

11/21/2017 7:23 AM PST

Matthew McConaughey was barely recognizable Monday on the set of his new flick, "The Beach Bum" ... although the role doesn't look like much of a stretch.

Matt's down in Miami shooting the new flick where he plays Moondog ... a dude who "lives life by his own rules." We smell some serious method acting. Isla Fisher is also in it, but her look's more apocalyptic than beach-y.

Saying McConaughey was born to play this role would be an understatement.

Remember, the man's already got his Oscar ... he can take whatever role he wants.

Tyrese & Michael Blackson Yup, Still Beating This Dead Horse ...

11/21/2017 7:06 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese is keeping his acting chops sharp for "Fast & Furious 9" -- if it ever shoots -- by continuing to play the role of hostage taker ... even though the jig is fully up.

We got Tyrese and his would-be captive, comedian Michael Blackson, Monday night at Mr Chow ... where Mike still appeared to be under Tyrese's thumb. It's an odd bit of theater, considering TMZ already broke the real story 12 hours earlier.

Police rushed to Tyrese's home when he posted a video making it seem like he was getting violent revenge on Blackson. Turned out to be a publicity stunt, but apparently, they're bucking to replace Key & Peele -- because the duo's still in character.

Neither the Emmy, Oscar nor Tony goes to ...

EXCLUSIVE

Charles Manson made several phone calls to a documentary film crew in the final year of his life ... which they're now releasing to the public.

TMZ got this exclusive look at the REELZ project called "Charles Manson: The Final Words."

We're told the doc -- which has been in production for about a year -- was initially scheduled to come out in 2018, but the network decided to bump that up, because as they say ... strike while the iron is hot.

It features phone convos with Manson from Corcoran State Prison -- the most recent one in July. Rob Zombie narrates the documentary, which presents a new theory behind why the murders happened.

It also provides a look at Manson's cult through his eyes ... in the months leading up to his death. 'Final Words' airs December 3 at 9 PM ET on REELZ.

Sylvester Stallone Ex-Wife Brigitte Nielsen Sexual Assault Story is a Lie

11/20/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sylvester Stallone's ex-wife, Brigitte Nielsen, says there is no way Stallone could have sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in Las Vegas because she was with him the entire time.

The Daily Mail posted a story that the 16-year-old met Stallone in 1986 during the filming of "Over the Top" and he invited the girl to his hotel room at the Vegas Hilton where he allegedly forced her to have oral sex with him as his bodyguard raped her.

Nielsen tells TMZ, "During the summer of 1986 we were newlyweds. I was inseparable with Sylvester when 'Over the Top' was being shot in Las Vegas. The story claims that at approximately 8:30 in the evening during the shoot of the movie the person claims she was in our suite at the Hilton Hotel."

Nielsen goes on to say, "This incident did not occur. Most of the day, I would watch him film, then we'd have dinner and go to our room. No other person was in the room with him, but me."

The Daily Mail post says the girl was introduced to Stallone by his "Over the Top" co-star, David Mendenhall. Mendenhall tells TMZ, "I was shocked when I read the Daily Mail article. It's completely false that I introduced a 16-year-old female stranger to Mr. Stallone near an elevator in the Hilton, or anywhere else for that matter."

He goes on ... "The only people I introduced to Mr. Stallone were my relatives who visited me on the set."

As for Nielsen, we're told she and Stallone haven't spoken in nearly 30 years. Nevertheless, she says, "I can say for certain that it is impossible for this incident to have occurred," adding, "It's unbelievable that Sylvester and his family have to suffer through this over something that never happened."

The Daily Mail post includes what looks like a police report filed by the 16-year-old. Vegas police have no record of the report. According to the story, the girl decided she did not want the case prosecuted so Vegas police dropped it.

Dave Bautista If Trump Gets Re-Elected ... I Might Seriously Leave This Country

11/20/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dave Bautista says Donald Trump is such an awful president (and human being) ... he might just bounce on the US of A if POTUS gets re-elected.

"If he lasts his full term, I may grab my wife and my dogs and pack up and move to Europe," Bautista told TMZ Sports in Santa Monica ... and he wasn't joking. 

Bautista says his old WWE buddy, The Rock, would make a waaay better candidate ... 'cause A) he's very patriotic and B) he's a decent human being.

Dave says those 2 qualities are lost on Trump -- who's really screwing things up right now when it comes to gun laws.

So if MAGA manages to go 4 more years... the "Guardians of the Galaxy" star says it could be bon voyage -- for good!!

Harrison Ford Still Playing Hero ... Helps Woman Who Drove Off Highway

11/19/2017 12:48 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford is the real-life Han Solo/Indiana Jones/every action hero he's ever played on camera ... 'cause he just helped a woman who ran her car off a highway.

Ford was on the scene of a crash late Sunday morning in Santa Paula, where a woman who was driving east on California State Route 126 accidentally drove her car off the road. 

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ Ford was driving behind her when she lost control and crashed into an embankment off the freeway. He pulled over and rushed to the woman's aide, as did other bystanders, to get her safely out of the vehicle while paramedics arrived.

Law enforcement sources tell us the woman was transported with minor injuries. 

This ain't the first time Ford's held up as a standout good citizen. You'll recall ... he recently directed tunnel traffic in NYC at a moment's notice -- did a pretty good job, too.

Thank you (again) for your service, Harrison.

Tyrese Re-United with Shayla After Court Victory

11/19/2017 7:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese Gibson had a celebratory lunch Saturday with daughter Shayla after winning a sweeping courtroom victory against ex-wife Norma Gibson.

Tyrese and 10-year-old Shayla hit up Nobu in Malibu ... this after the judge denied Norma's request for a permanent restraining order.  The judge also awarded Tyrese 50/50 custody.

He has some interesting things to say.  On the one hand he says Rx drugs took him off the rails, which is why he said Will and Jada Smith gave him $5 million ... which they did not.  But then he insinuates they promised him money but it never arrived.  Our Will and Jada sources say they never offered.

And Tyrese makes it clear ... he still has beef with The Rock.

Sophie Turner, Joe Jonas Jose Cuervo He Is a Friend of Ours!!!

11/19/2017 7:37 AM PST

Joe Jonas and fiancee Sophie Turner were all about the tequila in Rio.

Joe and Sophie cut loose Saturday afternoon at the Fasano Hotel Pool Bar.  When they spotted photogs they got super animated ... clearly enjoying the moment.

Their engagement is now a month old and she's still showing off the ring ... and good for her.

No word on when they'll tie the knot, but our suggestion ... have lots of tequila at the reception -- makes for a fun time.

Urijah Faber Jean-Claude Would Be A Damme Good UFC Fighter

11/18/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

You MMA fighters are lucky Jean-Claude Van Damme is busy as an international movie star ... 'cause UFC legend Urijah Faber says if he wasn't doing that, JCVD could be kicking ass in the octagon.

Faber attended a kicking clinic Van Damme put on in Sacramento this week, a clinic also attended by Faber's Team Alpha Male cohort Cody Garbrandt

Van Damme got busy with his legs (as he always does) but when we talked to Urijah we needed to know if he thought the Muscles from Brussels could ever do it FOR REAL.

"Oh, absolutely."

BTW, this isn't just Faber's opinion, he told TMZ Sports JCVD actually went toe-to-toe with one of the guys from his squad, and things got a little interesting.

"He actually got in with one of our pros and was moving around, and they started going back and forth and he actually caught the guy in the face with a little heel kick and it almost got heated there we had to calm it down."

Guy obviously never saw "Bloodsport."

Tyrese Big Win in Court Judge Allows 50/50 Custody of Daughter

11/17/2017 3:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese just scored a big victory in court after a judge denied his ex's request for a permanent restraining order which would have severely restricted the actor's access to his daughter, Shayla.

The judge ruled Tyrese and Norma Gibson will get 50/50 joint custody beginning in January. Until then, we're told both sides have worked out a visitation schedule that will allow Tyrese to see Shayla over the holidays.

After court, he didn't have much to say about the ruling ... but made it clear he will eventually.

As we reported ... Norma claimed Tyrese physically abused the 10-year-old, claiming he beat her 12 to 16 times. Tyrese says he only struck her once on the bottom, and that Norma is simply vengeful.

Over the course of the 3-week court battle, Tyrese has posted multiple videos chronicling his own personal turmoil.

Tyrese had an online meltdown that he blamed on a Rx drug he was taking for depression.

He also claimed Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million to dig himself out of a financial hole, but that turned out to be false.

Nonetheless ... the restraining order is now history, opening the door to a renewed relationship between father and daughter.

Ben Affleck Hot and Bothered After Grilling on Colbert

11/17/2017 11:33 AM PST

This is the face Ben Affleck had after getting GRILLED by Stephen Colbert.

Ben was leaving the 'Late Show' studio Thursday night where he was promoting his new flick, "Justice League." Everything seemed fine and dandy ... until Colbert brought up Harvey Weinstein.

Seems the subject threw off Ben, who then got grilled about his own sexual misconduct. You'll recall Ben apologized for apparently groping a former MTV host in 2003. Another video surfaced showing him in 2004 getting handsy with a Canadian TV host.

The subject's clearly got him heated.
