Margot Robbie

Looks Snatched Up, But Is It ...

Promise Ring or Real Thing?

6/18/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0617-margot-robbie-pcnMargot Robbie is out of the game ... on the bench ... off the market ... NOT ever going to be yours -- 'cause the Aussie hottie and her man are flashing gold bands that reek of marriage ... we think.

Margot was walking around Toronto -- where she's shooting "Suicide Squad" -- with the gold piece. Thing is ... her beau, aspiring director Tom Ackerley, was sporting similar jewelry last week. Both of them have it on THAT finger.  

Robbie and Ackerley hit the one year mark this month... so, it could be perfect timing for him to pop the question.

There's still hope fellas -- they could just be promise rings. Plus, what newlywed or newly engaged chick (especially a smoking hot one in Hollywood) doesn't flash her diamond??

Then again, reality is ... you never had a chance.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

J.J. Watt Should Be Next 'Terminator'

6/18/2015 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Did Arnold Schwarzenegger just invite J.J. Watt to play a T-1000 in the next "Terminator" movie???

Affirmative. 

Watt's a HUGE fan of the action legend -- and even did an impression of the guy when they met face-to-face at the CMT Awards in Nashville earlier this month.  

Well, Arnold liked Watt so much he hooked him up to see an early screening of his new flick "Terminator Genisys" ... and afterward, made an INCREDIBLE offer to the NFL superstar.  

"Of course in the next 'Terminator' you have to be the T-1000."

So far, no word back from Watt ... but, c'mon -- there's no way he turns this down. 

Zac Efron

Dogfight Over Shark Encounter

6/17/2015 1:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Zac Efron was either a noble conservationist or a reckless yahoo when he dove with a tiger shark.

Shark experts could not be more divided. Naturalist Juan Oliphant, who set up the dive in Hawaii with Zac and Adam Divine, tells TMZ the point was to show the beauty of sharks so people will think twice before poaching them for fin soup. 

But shark photog Jeff Kurr felt Zac's dive was not only reckless, it could actually make sharks even more hated and feared. He says tiger sharks are extremely dangerous and unpredictable.

Oliphant says Zac and Adam were extremely respectful and the shark was "mellow and uninterested in people," but Kurr says grabbing a fin is an aggressive invite to a deadly attack.

 FYI ... in Hawaii, tiger shark attacks outnumber great white attacks.

Channeling his "Roots" character, Burton went off ... saying Rachel needs to understand "being black in America is NOT a game." Toby Kunta also has a message for anyone comparing Dolezal to Caitlyn Jenner.

An ultra-hyper Caesars Palace MC goaded the "Magic Mike" star into bumping and grinding at the racy variety show, "Absinthe." After taking crap over some of his film flops, C.T. jumped up and busted a move.

Channing’s a big fan of the show, which combines cabaret and acrobatics.

There is a new, tall, dark and handsome fella in Jennifer Lawrence's life -- her bodyguard Greg, and there is no bag nor dog safe from his tight, muscular grasp.

The Oscar winner's been putting him to real good use ... he's been spotted on various manny duties like lugging around her dog Pippi and purses ... like a true Navy SEAL. 

Lucky dog.  

Ernie Reyes Jr.

'Ninja Turtles' Star Hospitalized

... My Kidneys Are Shot

Exclusive Details

0611-ernie-reyes-treatment-tmzFormer action star Ernie Reyes Jr. -- who famously played Keno in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II" -- is "fighting for his life" after suffering from kidney failure ... this according to his family. 

Reyes Jr. was huge back in the day -- starring as Tai in "The Last Dragon," Prince Tarn in "Red Sonja" ... and he was the main character in "Surf Ninjas." 

He later transitioned into MMA -- and went 3-0 in Strikeforce.  

Now, 43-year-old Reyes Jr. is hoping for a kidney transplant after his own began to fail back in March. Since then, he's been in and out of the hospital in Texas ... and his eyesight is failing.  

Ernie's sister tells TMZ Sports ... Reyes is in the process of getting on a transplant list -- but in the meantime, he's been receiving dialysis treatments 3 times per week.  

We're told the family has set up a fundraising page to help with medical bills and several folks from his films and TV shows  -- like stunt coordinator pals James Lew from "Rush Hour 2" and Andy Cheng from “The Rundown” -- have pitched in. 

Get well soon, man.

 

Common in 'Suicide Squad'

Definitely Black ...

But Black Manta??

6/11/2015 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611-suicide-squad-PCNAll the fan sites pegged Common as playing Black Manta in the upcoming "Suicide Squad" movie -- 'cause, well ... y'know -- but now that we've seen him on set that doesn't appear to be the case.

Our first glimpse of the rapper/actor in full costume actually has him looking more like Abel Tarrant ... aka The Tattooed Man.

0611-subasset-tattoo-man-02As DC legend has it ... The Tattooed Man is the Green Lantern's archenemy, and has the ability to turn his tattoos into weapons (duh!).

For purpose of this movie ... looks like he also tans really well.

'Cause fighting dinos in “Jurrassic World” and possibly being the new Indiana Jones wasn't enough -- Chris Pratt decided to try his hand at singing WITH Jimmy Buffett!

Film Reels Used

To Smuggle Blow

0610-newark-cocaine-film-canisters

It looks like the worst drug smuggling scheme ever on film -- 'cause a guy got busted for transporting mounds of coke inside film canisters ... in a plot way thinner than anything you saw in "Blow."

Newark Airport customs agents grew suspicious after finding 36 film tins inside his luggage – and unless he was shooting 'Godfather 4' ... that was the first hint something was up.

Agents found disks filled with the coco tucked inside the film strips. Total haul -- 10 lbs. with an estimated street value of $177,000.

As for the other hints -- well, the flight was arriving from ... COLOMBIA!! Oh, and the alleged smuggler's last name is Espinosa.

Sorry, but if your name is Andres Filipe Alean Espinosa, and you're flying in from Colombia with 36 film tins ... you're probably getting a secondary search. 

This guy's no George Jung

Chris Pratt

Forget Jurassic World ...

I'm Going to Margaritaville!

6/10/2015 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Pratt is living the life -- he's got "Jurassic World" opening this weekend (which is sure to be huge) and now he can say he's performed with the one and only ... Jimmy Buffett

Buffett was on stage Tuesday night at the "Jurassic World" premiere party in Hollywood ... and when it was time for "Margaritaville" ... Pratt just  couldn't resist Jimmy's invite to join in. 

Pratt's musical proclivities are no secret ... he's rocked out numerous times on "Parks and Recreation" and who could forget his legendary Eminem rendition?!

It's good to be Chris Pratt.

Danny Trejo

Some Old Lady

Crashed Into Me!

6/9/2015 2:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0609-danny-trejo-car-accident-TMZ-01Danny Trejo emerged unscathed from a gnarly looking car crash Tuesday afternoon -- and he's blaming a little old lady for causing the wreck.   

Trejo tells TMZ he was driving in Chatsworth, just north of L.A., when a woman (he's guessing around 70 years old) made an illegal left turn in front of him. DT's sweet ride -- a Caddy El Dorado -- crashed into her car, and she ended up getting the worst of it.  

Trejo, who is 71-years-old himself ... says there's little damage to his car, but hers got torn up. More importantly to the "Machete Kills" star ... he says no one was injured, they exchanged info, and went about their way. 

Trejo was in such good spirits after the crash, he posed with paramedics and police.
