Christian Bale It's Him ... We Promise

9/6/2017 9:02 AM PDT

Christian Bale ... is actually pictured here. Take it in. Believe it.

That really is Christian at the Telluride Film Festival where he's promoting one movie, but clearly packing on the pounds for his next one. He's playing former VP Dick Cheney for a biopic, and his transformation is in full swing.

Bale's famously gone through extreme weight changes -- for instance, "The Machinist" and his 'Batman' roles.

But if ya find yourself missing Christian at his fighting weight ... blame Dick. Cheney.

Jamie Foxx & Katie Holmes We're Not Hiding Anymore

9/6/2017 12:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Until now, seeing Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes out together as a couple was as common as a Bigfoot sighting or riding a unicorn ... but not anymore!!!

It took 4 years, but Hollywood's most top secret couple finally packed on the PDA Monday in Malibu ... hand in hand in the sand. Though they've allegedly been together since 2013 -- about a year after her split from Tom Cruise -- this is the first time they've been seen doing what lovebirds do.

As we reported ... Katie was seen with a ring on her finger in March 2016, but Foxx's rep said it wasn't from him. A year before that, Jamie denied they were even a thing. Still, the relationship was no secret to most in Hollywood -- JamKat just never let on in public.

JamKat? Can we slap a ™ on that ... just in case? 

Jason Whitlock Kaepernick Impersonator Is Kid ... from Kid 'n Play

9/6/2017 7:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The man dressed up like Colin Kaepernick during a segment with FS1 star Jason Whitlock is not white ... despite what the Internet thinks. 

He's actually Kid from Kid 'n Play -- aka Christopher Reid, star of 'House Party' 1, 2 and 3 (remember, he was replaced by Immature in 'House Party 4'). 

Whitlock has been receiving all sorts of hate online from people who think he dressed up a white dude to mock the NFL QB. That's simply not the case. 

Others -- including ESPN's Josina Anderson -- are pissed at Whitlock for "mocking a movement." Don Cheadle gave his stamp of approval to her criticism. 

The actual segment involving Kid (as Kaep) has not aired (at the time this post was written) -- but Whitlock has hinted there's more to the story. 

"I remember the good-old days when people sought real information before feigning outrage in a publication or publicly." 

Stay tuned ... 

Harry Potter Hogwarts Acceptance Letter Up For Auction

9/6/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harry Potter's acceptance letter to Hogwarts is going up for auction in the Muggle world, and it's expected to fetch several Galleons.

The 7-inch envelope addressed to Harry at "The Cupboard Under the Stairs, 4, Privet Drive," is being sold through Prop Store, a movie collectible auction house. Several were used in the first 'Potter' film, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone," and suffered the same fate ... getting ripped up or thrown in the fireplace by Harry's uncle.

This is the actual one Hagrid hand-delivered in the film and the Prop Store thinks it'll go for $4,000 to $6,500 at auction.

Other props from the film franchise up for auction include Ron Weasley's Howler, and autographed items by Daniel Radcliffe

The auction goes down September 26 in London, but you can bid from home through the Wizardry of the Internet.

Michael Rooker LAFD 'Kicked Ass' ... And Saved Homes!!!

9/6/2017 12:10 AM PDT

Michael Rooker still has a house after L.A.'s massive wildfire scorched 7,000 acres -- including several in his neighborhood -- and he knows exactly who to thank.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star gave huge props to the LAFD Tuesday at LAX for going toe-to-toe with the largest wildfire in L.A. County history, and sparing countless homes from the blaze.

Three houses were destroyed, but firefighters were able to contain the flames, so people like Michael and his neighbors can start returning home. Yondu put it best ... they flat-out kicked ass.

Levi Miller 'Pan' Star Still Flying High $150K for 'A Wrinkle in Time'

9/4/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Levi Miller's star has been on the rise since he landed the lead role of Peter in "Pan" ... and so has the kid's bank account -- we just learned he's bankin' some serious cash for his new flick.

The 14-year-old actor scored at least $150,000 to play the role of Calvin in "A Wrinkle in Time" -- the Disney flick starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Mindy Kaling and Oprah due out in March.

Calvin's one of the main kid characters in the movie, and on top of the $150k ... Levi's got a shot to make $75k more in bonuses if "A Wrinkle in Time" does well. Based on the star power and the Disney name ... we'd say he's got a good chance.

And get this -- if the movie gets a sequel, Levi's salary will more than double ... and he'll cash in $700k if there's another sequel after that.

He's going to be able to buy a really awesome car when he can finally drive.

Charlie Sheen Reunites with 'Major League' Cast At Real 'Field of Dreams'!

9/3/2017 5:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Sheen finally got what he wanted in a "Major League" reunion -- well, sorta -- but with a baseball movie curve ball.

Sheen got together Sunday -- seemingly for the first time in a long time -- with his fellow 'Major League' costars Corbin Bernsen and Tom Berenger for a little baseball softball action at the real-life "Field of Dreams" from the movie of the same name.

Sources close to the event tell TMZ Sports the 3 actors were participating in a celebrity softball game this weekend in Dubuque County, Iowa -- where the field was built -- put on by MAB Celebrity Services. Prince Marketing Group booked Sheen and co.

Some other MLB legends that were there included Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs, Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson, Cardinals shortstop Ozzie Smith and White Sox first baseman Frank Thomas. U.S. soccer star Hope Solo was there too.

You'll recall ... Charlie told us earlier this year he was positive the 'Major League' cast would get together for a 3rd movie in the franchise. This ain't that just yet, but still ... a good start.

Looks like dreams really do come true, especially when it's your born day. Happy birthday, Charlie!

Tupac Shakur He Knew Who Pulled The Trigger

9/3/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tupac Shakur knew who killed him but his murder remains unsolved because the Las Vegas PD never wanted to solve it ... according to a new 2Pac special, and TMZ has the exclusive first clip.

Pac's getting his own 'Snapped: Notorious' documentary on Oxygen airing September 10. It'll run 2 hours with in-depth interviews from people who were the last to see him alive before he was fatally shot dead in a drive-by in 1996. They include close friends and rappers Danny Boy and Yo-Yo, DJ Mister Cee, Pac's first manager Leila Steinberg, music journalist Toure and others.

The trailer, obtained by TMZ, paints a vivid picture of Pac's last breaths on his deathbed in a Las Vegas hospital ... his finger shot off and nodding that he knew who did this to him.

A must watch for any 2Pac fan.

LaMelo Ball Celebs Already Coppin' My Shoes ... Like Ice Cube's Son!

9/2/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaMelo Ball's $395 shoes officially have their first celeb buyer ... cause O'Shea Jackson Jr. (aka Ice Cube's son) says he's gonna cop a pair ASAP!

Not that O'Shea thinks The MB1s are worth the scratch -- dude's just a HUGE Lakers fan ... and backs all things BBB.  

If you need proof ... the "Straight Outta Compton" star already knew about Melo's kicks when our photog found him at LAX -- just HOURS after they dropped.

"If it has the name Ball on it, the sh*t is HOT," Jackson told TMZ Sports.

"I’ma get mine. I’ma get some of Lonzo’s. If LaVar gets some, I’ma get them too."

Speaking of LaVar ... O'Shea says he's a "genius" -- and even plugged the Big Baller dad for president!

Looks like Jay-Z ain't the only big name on the bandwagon

 

'Six Million Dollar Man' Star Richard Anderson Dead at 91

8/31/2017 4:40 PM PDT

Richard Anderson -- who played the government agent who cooked up the idea for "The Six Million Dollar Man" and "The Bionic Woman" in the 1970s -- has died. 

Anderson passed away Thursday at his Beverly Hills home, according to his publicist. He famously portrayed OSI honcho Oscar Goldman on both TV shows. It's his voice you hear in the show open talking about making Steve Austin "the world's first bionic man."

He had nearly 200 roles during his six-decade career ... starring in movies as well as huge TV shows in the '60s and '70s, including "Bonanza," "Hawaii Five-O" and "The Mod Squad."

Richard was 91. 

Leonardo DiCaprio Feeling Just Shy of a Million Bucks

8/31/2017 6:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Leonardo DiCaprio is one bashful humanitarian after shelling out a million bucks for victims of Harvey ... but that's still not throwing off his game with hot chicks. 

We got Leo Wednesday night leaving TAO in Hollywood with a handful of ladies, and as they all board an SUV ... the actor tries sneaking past the cameras outside all incognito ... this after sending a whopping mil to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund.

No need to be shy, bud -- you're a playboy with a big heart (and wallet). We're guessing that can only go over well with your usual crowd.

Michael Rooker Chris Pratt Lulled Me to Sleep During 'Guardians 2' Scene

8/30/2017 10:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Rooker's a pro when it comes to relaxing -- which turns out to be a slight problem while filming sentimental scenes with Chris Pratt.

We got Michael at LAX and he talked about the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" blooper that's had fans cracking up. It's from his character Yondu's funeral scene, and since cameras couldn't show him breathing ... he had to chill himself out.

He pulled it off ... getting REAL chill, as in zonked out and snoring. Michael blames it all on his co-star, Chris, and told us it happened more than once. Or twice. 

Dude loves his sleep.

'Star Wars' Star John Boyega The Force Awakens In My Shorts

8/29/2017 8:08 AM PDT

The force is strong  ... in John Boyega's shorts judging from all the bumping and grinding he did at London's massive Notting Hill Carnival.

Boyega hit up the annual street carnival, along with some 2 million other people, and rode a carnival dancer - or two - like a 'Star Wars' landspeeder ... or Dewback ... or Luggabeast. 'Star Wars' fans get the picture. Actually, everybody understands.

'Star Wars VIII' wrapped filming in July, but looks like John's still wielding a lightsaber.
