Christopher Plummer No Regrets Taking Kevin Spacey's Role

11/13/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The guy replacing Kevin Spacey in a movie that's supposed to be released in about a month is surprisingly at ease about pulling off an unprecedented cinematic move.

We got Christopher Plummer Sunday in NYC where he was attending the premiere of one of his own upcoming flicks, and asked if it was a difficult decision to accept the role in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World," after Spacey got the ax last week

From the way Chris responds, it doesn't sound like he has any qualms about taking the gig away, even though he was mum on reaching out to the beleaguered actor. 

As for that looming release date of December 22 -- Chris might as well have quoted OutKast ... ain't no thang.

11/13/2017 7:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meagan Good doesn't see anything wrong with someone's conscience making them walk away from a great opportunity or potential millions in Hollywood. 

We got Meagan leaving Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills Sunday night and asked her about Gal Gadot saying she'd bail on a "Wonder Woman" sequel if Brett Ratner didn't drop out as an executive producer amid all his sexual harassment allegations. The first "Wonder Woman" film grossed over $800 million worldwide, and Gal was negotiating a huge pay raise for the second film.

While the "White Famous" star says she's not familiar with Gal's situation, it's clear whose side she's on.

11/12/2017 6:51 AM PST

Corey Feldman says he made the mother of his good friend a promise not to talk about allegations Corey Haim was sexually molested when he was 13 ... and he's sticking to his promise.

We got Feldman outside Tao Saturday night, and asked him a story claiming Charlie Sheen raped Haim, something Sheen fiercely denies.    

Corey's mom, Judy Haim, went on Dr. Oz recently and said a former actor sexually abused her son, but not Charlie.  

Corey Haim died in 2010 at 38.

Leo DiCaprio had an interesting birthday party Saturday night ... in terms of what he fellow celebs chose to get him.

Robin Thicke may have slipped a present inside The Highlight Room in L.A., but probably more meaningful was that he took the mic and sang Happy Birthday,.

There were lots of other stars ... Jamie Foxx and The Weeknd.

George Lopez Hollywood's an Evil Business

11/11/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez gives Hollywood low marks for the way it treats its own, but he gives Louis C.K. props for fessing up.

We got George at LAX Friday and he had strong feelings about the floodgates that have opened over the last 3 weeks.  

He's pretty cynical about the way Hollywood runs, but seems to think there is a path to redemption which begins with a mea culpa. That may not be the way Louis C.K. sees it ... he's been summarily fired from almost all of his projects. 

Louis C.K. Said Right Things, But Failed Women ... Says 'OITNB' Star

11/10/2017 5:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Louis C.K. deserves to lose everything he's lost professionally, because no one should be rewarded for sexual assault ... according to "Orange Is The New Black" star, Lea DeLaria.

We got Lea at LAX Friday and asked her about the huge backlash C.K.'s faced since 5 women accused him of sexual misconduct ... to which he's since confessed. Lea says while he seemed to be "one of the good guys" who supported women in comedy -- C.K.'s behavior reveals something much darker.

He's been dropped by his management and publicist, lost his Netflix and FX deals, and had his movie release canceled.

You can tell Lea desperately wants to say something positive about Louis -- but ultimately has to admit it's nearly impossible now.

Louis C.K. Confesses ... My Accusers Were All Telling the Truth

11/10/2017 10:23 AM PST
Breaking News

Louis C.K. has just addressed claims by 5 women that he either asked to expose himself, masturbated in front of them, or did so over the phone. He acknowledges the women were all telling the truth, and goes on to explain his conduct and the error of his ways.

"I want to address the stories told to the New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not.

These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.

I have been remorseful of my actions. And I've tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.

I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn't want to hear it. I didn't think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it.

There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.

I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work.

The hardest regret to live with is what you've done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I’d be remiss to exclude the hurt that I’ve brought on people who I work with and have worked with who’s professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situation that I caused. I’ve brought anguish and hardship to the people at FX who have given me so much The Orchard who took a chance on my movie. and every other entity that has bet on me through the years.
I’ve brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.

I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.

Thank you for reading."

Louis C.K.'s movie, "I Love You, Daddy" will not hit theaters -- the distributor is pulling it in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against the comedian.

The Orchard announced Friday ... it would "not be moving forward" with the release, which was scheduled for Nov. 17. The decision is a huge shot to C.K. -- he wrote the film, starred in it and reportedly self-financed it too.

The movie's about a successful TV writer's daughter -- played by Chlöe Grace Moretz -- dating a much older filmmaker. Louis played the TV writer, and there's at least one scene where his friend pretends to masturbate in front of people.

As we reported, 5 women have accused C.K. of sexual misconduct, including masturbating in front of some of them.
