EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey sucks at acting ... so says Chael Sonnen, who says if Ronda stops fighting, her Hollywood career is over.

Sonnen joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 and explained that he wants the best for Rousey ... but pretending she has a real shot as an actress is a joke.

"This girl can't act, nor should she be able to. She's not a trained actor. She was in those opportunities because she was very famous."

Sonnen says for Ronda, fighting and acting opportunities are tied together -- "It's a house of cards. If one goes, they all go."

Bryce incredibly ran around the jungle in a pair of stilettos in the last flick ... and took a lot of crap for it.

Margot Robbie Ice Queen Practicing for Tonya Harding Flick

1/4/2017 7:08 AM PST

Margot Robbie’s mastered the spin for her upcoming role as Tonya Harding, but she's got a long way to go before she can stick a triple Salchow.

Robbie hit the ice Tuesday at Pickwick Ice in Burbank -- the same place Alan Thicke had his fatal heart attack. The movie, called "I, Tonya," dramatizes one of the biggest sporting scandals in history. As you know, Tonya's ex-husband hired a hitman to club rival Nancy Kerrigan in the leg before the '94 Olympics.

We'll give Robbie a 9.7. Doubt the Russian judges would be as generous.

Carrie Fisher/Debbie Reynolds Public Memorial to Feature Meryl Streep

1/4/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0103_carrie-fisher-meryl-streep_debbie_reynolds_tmz-2The family of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds is planning a public memorial which will become a grand Hollywood event, and we're told they've reached out to Meryl Streep for the keynote eulogy.

Family sources tell us there will be a private service and burial Thursday for both Carrie and Debbie. The service will take place at Forest Lawn in Burbank, where mother/daughter will be buried side by side.

We're told there will be no celebrities delivering eulogies at the private service. If Billie Lourd feels up to speaking she will, but there are no concrete plans.

As for the public memorial, no date has been set. Billie is spearheading the service, and she wants to get through the funeral before she goes full bore.

We're told as of late Tuesday, Meryl Streep was not a firm lock but they fully expect her to be the principal speaker. As you know, Streep played Carrie in "Postcards from the Edge" and was very close to Debbie. Meryl presented Debbie with a humanitarian award a couple years back.

We're told the family will also reach out to 'Star Wars' actors to speak, including Mark Hamill. They expect George Lucas to attend but not to speak.

The public memorial will be a Hollywood event. We're told Debbie's costumes from "Singin' in the Rain" and other movies will be on display. Carrie's 'Star Wars' outfits likewise will be featured.

1229_WILLY_Wonka_signed-poster_wonka-bar_RRFans of the classic 1971 film "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" can own a piece of the movie as rare as a golden ticket, but it won't come cheap ... or with the chocolate.

RR Auction has an original Wonka Bar prop up for grabs with the vintage wrapper and foil, and even though it's a cardboard insert inside instead of 45-year-old chocolate ... it's still expected to haul in around $4,000.

We're told props from 'Willy Wonka' are very hard to come by because the vast majority were discarded the day after shooting wrapped, but this lucky Wonka Bar survived.

The auction includes a promo photo signed by the film's star, Gene Wilder, who died in August, and several more of the actors ... including 3 who played Oompa Loompas.

The items are available to be bid on online until January 11th.

Debbie's biggest films have jumped in the ranks on platforms like Amazon and iTunes, with her best known flick, "Singin' in the Rain," sitting pretty at #1 on Amazon's best sellers list as of Thursday.

Carrie Fisher isn't being left out of the surge either. The film "Postcards from the Edge," based on her memoir about Debbie and Carrie's relationship, has also bumped up in iTunes' charts.
