Luke Wilson From Victim to Hero ... In Bill Haas Fatal Crash

2/14/2018 1:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luke Wilson went from crash victim to action hero mere moments after a Ferrari in which pro golfer Bill Haas was riding passenger caused a fatal accident ... TMZ has learned.

Tattoo artist Sean Heirigs -- who owns House of Ink in Venice, CA -- tells us he witnessed the crash Tuesday night, where he says the driver of the Ferrari, 71-year-old Mark Gibello, sped off down a road, lost control switching gears and hit a BMW in the opposite lane.

Heirigs says the BMW flipped over, and clipped Wilson's tailing car in the process. He tells us the woman inside was screaming, as her leg was stuck as her car began smoking.

That's when Wilson parked his car and ran over to get the woman out. Heirigs says he also assisted, but tells us it was Wilson who went in through the back, while he dislodged her leg. Wilson then pulled the victim out of the back of the car and they both carried her over to a curb while paramedics arrived.

As for the one fatality in the wreck -- the driver of the Ferrari -- Heirigs says he overheard the man's wife tell authorities Haas was a friend from out of town, whom her husband wanted to take for a spin.

Ahmad Rashad Murders O.J.'s Hollywood Comeback

2/14/2018 11:33 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of O.J. Simpson's former BFFs is giving his alleged big-screen return 2 thumbs down -- telling TMZ Sports there ain't a chance Juice gets loose in Hollywood again.

We got Ahmad Rashad at LAX on Tuesday ... and it was pretty clear from the jump that he didn't wanna talk O.J. (who, fun fact, was in his wedding party, along with Bill Cosby). 

But when we asked if O.J.'s rumored cameo in a Sacha Baron Cohen movie could be the start of an acting resurgence -- the Vikings legend straight-up laughed off the possibility.

Ahmad also told us there's no way in hell he'd watch Sacha's flick if O.J.'s in it (shocker).

FYI, Simpson's Hollywood credits include blockbusters like "Roots" and "The Naked Gun" trilogy.

Margot Robbie Calvin's Newest Face At NYFW

2/14/2018 11:05 AM PST

Margot Robbie looked absolutely incredible sitting next to Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern at a recent NYFW show.

Robbie was spotted next to the actresses at Calvin Klein's NYFW event which totally makes sense given she's the new face of euphoria Calvin Klein -- the brand's fragrance. We're told the trio were the ones who really stole the show.

Margot's got a lot under her belt already this year, including the massive success of "I, Tonya" ... so add the new CK campaign to her growing list of accomplishments for 2018.

La La Anthony, Leslie Jones and other celebs were there as well.

A few fun 'Star Wars' props from the last 2 franchise films are on the auction block, and are expected to fetch thousands for a good cause -- helping victims of last year's fires in California's wine country.

There's also a model porg from 'The Last Jedi' -- one of just 5 ever made -- signed by Johnson, Kennedy and creature designer Neal Scanlan. All 3 auctions opened last week with a starting bid of $1,000 ... but the helmets already have bids placed for over $4k.

Proceeds from the auction will go to Tipping Point’s Emergency Fire Relief Fund, which supports low income communities affected by the fires in the Napa and Sonoma Valley areas.

Danai Gurira's 40th Bday Parties with 'Black Panther' Cast ... Before Opening Weekend

2/13/2018 7:45 AM PST

A good chunk of the cast of "Black Panther" got together to ring in one of their co-stars' 40th birthday ... but they probably had more reason to celebrate than just that.

Danai Gurira -- who plays Okoye in the upcoming film -- turns the big 4-0 Wednesday, but she and her cast members rang in her fab 40s on Monday night in NYC instead.

They were partying it up at the Boom Boom Room atop of The Standard, High Line hotel -- and from the looks of these shots ... it appears most of the major "Black Panther" actors were there, sans Michael B. Jordan

Danai and co. certainly seemed chummy in celebration, and why shouldn't they? Their new Marvel superhero flick is expected to have a massive box office opening, with projections of up to $165 million domestically for its debut weekend.

Chris Hemsworth Man of the Wild Wraps Up Family Vacay

2/13/2018 7:30 AM PST

Chris Hemsworth must've gotten his fill from an adventure Down Under, 'cause he and his fam looked ready to get back to more urban Australian life.

Chris, his wife Elsa, and their 3 kids were spotted boarding a plane out of Adelaide after spending a couple jam-packed days in the area hanging with all kinds of wildlife. They live in Byron Bay, about 1,200 miles away on the east coast of Australia. 

While they were in the south, the Hemsworth squad hit up Kangaroo Island and Seal Bay during their South Australia escapade -- coming across the likes of koalas, snakes, sea lions and dolphins along the way.

True to form ... Chris was seen taking the reigns on a lot of this stuff, literally. From snakes to fishing rods, the Aussie appeared to have a handle on things during the vacay.

It all looks good on ya, mate!

'Black-ish' Star Deon Cole Not TOTALLY Sold On 'Black Panther' Donating Profits

2/13/2018 7:17 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Deon Cole hopes "Black Panther" can be just any other successful movie ... not drowned in controversy over its social role.

We got the "Black-ish" star leaving the Hollywood Improv and asked him if he agrees with Vivica A. Fox in that Disney producers should invest portions of its profits to the African-American community.

Deon wants fans to just let it be ... enjoy 'BP' and long for a sequel just like any other great flick. BTW ... Deon also rips Newsweek for throwing shade at his movie, "The Female Brain." It's hilarious. Watch. 

Vivica A. Fox Buck Up, Disney!!! 'Black Panther' Profit Should Go to Black Comm.

2/12/2018 1:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Vivica A. Fox raised her fist and emphatically let it be known -- "Black Panther" producers, Disney, could do wonders if it donates a big chunk of money to the African-American community.

We got Vivica Monday at LAX and she threw her support behind the Change.org petition for Marvel and Disney to invest 25% of the movie's proceeds back into the community. She says it's the right move, and could pay dividends for many years to come.

Not everyone's totally on board. We also got comedian Gary Owen, and he says it's not the studio's job to give away money. He has some advice for anyone signing the petition. 

By the way, the guy who started the petition says the donation is the right thing to do, because Disney has marketed the movie almost exclusively to black moviegoers ... and it's done so in the middle of Black History Month.

Marlon Brando's Son Dad Didn't Bang Richard Pryor

2/12/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Brando's son says his dad did NOT bang Richard Pryor ... even though Pryor's widow insists he did.

Marlon's oldest living son, Miko Brando, tells TMZ ... "The Marlon Brando family has heard the recent comments by Quincy Jones and we are disappointed that anyone would make such a wrongful comment about either Marlon Brando or Richard Pryor."

That's in sharp conflict with what Richard's widow, Jennifer Pryor, told us last week ... that the Brando/Pryor hookup DID go down, and Rich was fine with it.

You'll recall, Jennifer said Richard wasn't upset at all by Quincy's comments -- adding the comedian was always very open about his bisexuality, apparently having documented his experiences in diaries he kept.

Miko's gone to bat for his late father before -- most recently when the actor was accused of plotting a real rape during a movie scene. Heck, even Richard's own daughter, Rain Pryor, denied the love affair between the 2 stars in a now-deleted post ... saying Pryor had a relationship with a trans woman once ... but "Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando."

So who's truthin' and who's lyin'?

Harvey Weinstein & TWC Sued N.Y. AG Claims Civil Rights Violations Bob & Co. Were Complicit!!

2/11/2018 2:19 PM PST
Breaking News

5:06 PM PT -- Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, tells TMZ, "We believe that a fair investigation by Mr. Schneiderman will demonstrate that many of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein are without merit. While Mr. Weinstein's behavior was not without fault, there certainly was no criminality, and at the end of the inquiry it will be clear that Harvey Weinstein promoted more women to key executive positions than any other industry leader and there was zero discrimination at either Miramax or TWC."

The statement goes on ... "If the purpose of the inquiry is to encourage reform throughout the film industry, Mr. Weinstein will embrace the investigation. If the purpose, however, is to scapegoat Mr. Weinstein, he will vigorously defend himself."

Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company are being sued by the New York attorney general for alleged civil rights violations in the workplace.

New York's AG, Eric Schneiderman, just filed suit against Harvey, his brother Bob Weinstein, and the entire Weinstein Co., alleging they violated the state's civil rights laws and NYC's human rights laws during the disgraced movie producer's time there.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Schneiderman says Harvey persistently sexually harassed female employees at TWC by personally creating a hostile work environment and demanding quid pro quo sexual favors for continued employment or career advancement.

He goes on to allege that Harvey used his position at TWC, as well as female employees and company resources, to serve his sexual interests with other women seeking employment or business opportunities with TWC. 

Schneiderman also accuses TWC's human resources department of essentially being non-existent ... while going on to claim Bob and the rest of the board of directors were complicit in Harvey's operation by ignoring credible evidence presented to them time and again.

Schneiderman wants Harvey, Bob and TWC to pay out the nose for their alleged misdeeds ... upwards of $350k for each violation. He also wants any women bound to an NDA with the company to be released from its terms. 

Chloe Grace Moretz Gotta Go-Go for 21 With or Without Brooklyn

2/11/2018 10:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chloe Grace Moretz turned the big 2-1 this weekend, and promptly turned up by rubbing on a dude that wasn't her boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham ... but she probably gets a pass.

Chloe hit the town Saturday night for he 21st birthday by making a brief (but eventful) visit to The Abbey in WeHo with a few girlfriends ... sans 18-year-old Brooklyn. It appears the couple did recently celebrate together, but he obviously couldn't tag along for the bar hop.

As for Chloe, an eyewitness tells us she and 4 pals showed up around 10:30 PM and stayed for about half an hour. And what a half hour it was -- Chloe and her girls ordered some drinks and then got on the dance floor  ... eventually calling over a nearby go-go dancer.

The rest is pretty much history, as seen in our video. Fear not, though, young Beckham ... The Abbey's a gay bar. No harm, no foul.
