JLo & Casper

Not Dating, We Swear ...

But Still Going Down South

4/9/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0408_jennifer_lopez_casper_smart_together_nexico_vacation_launch_ipadJennifer Lopez and her NOT boyfriend are enjoying a NOT vacation in Mexico for his NOT birthday.

You get our drift, right? It IS Casper Smart's 28th birthday, and he and JLo ARE on vacay with her kids -- yet during an interview this week ... Jennifer insisted she's single.

Casper did some jetskiing ... JLo's kids went horseback riding, and JLo followed them all around town. Check out the pics ... no kissing or canoodling, but they're definitely close.

As we reported ... sources connected to Jen and Casper tell us they never really broke up -- and a couple weeks ago they were kissing outside "American Idol." 

But yeah, like she says ... they're not dating.

Ryan Reynolds

Deadpool Outfit Is Dead On ...

And Tight On the Junk

4/7/2015 10:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Reynolds Deadpool Costume

SPOILER ALERT: Ryan Reynolds looks badass as Deadpool and is set to make a ton of comic book nerds very excited.

Reynolds was on the Vancouver set of the upcoming Marvel movie wearing Deadpool's full regalia ... and looking spot on as the anti-hero. Just a guess based on the pics, but Ryan might want 'em to let out the inseam a little -- especially if the movie spawns sequels. 

The movie is set for a 2016 release and will also feature Ed Skrein, Silicon Valley's TJ Miller and Gina Carano.

If you haven't seen the footage that was responsible for the whole project getting greenlit ... drop your swords and treat yourself right now.

Tom Cruise

Katie Sources Say

He Hasn't Seen Suri in a Year

4/7/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Cruise Hasnt Seen Suri

Tom Cruise said he wasn't able to see his daughter for months because he was shooting "Mission Impossible 5" in London, and he was counting the hours before he came home to little Suri. But we're told he was off work for 2 weeks after shooting wrapped, yet never saw her. 

Sources connected to Katie Holmes tell TMZ ... it's worse than that. They say Tom has not seen the 8-year-old in almost a year. Tom's rep previously denied that and said the actor has seen his daughter plenty, but on the down low to shield her from cameras.

But our Katie sources say that's not true ... that he's just not been a part of her life.  

There's been speculation Tom is distancing himself from Katie and Suri because they've been declared SPs in Scientology, but we've checked with the Church and we're told that is simply not true.

Tom is now back to business ... he just began a 90 day shoot in Atlanta.

He did take time Sunday to take his son Connor to the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament in Tampa.

We reached out to Tom's rep .... so far no word back.

John Travolta

Breaks His Silence ...

'Going Clear' Peeps Are Dreaming!

4/7/2015 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0407-john-travolta-going-clear-01

John Travolta is finally speaking out about the HBO documentary "Going Clear" -- and dismisses the people behind it as a bunch of disgruntled ex-followers of Scientology.

In the documentary ... former Scientologists call for Travolta and Tom Cruise to speak out against the church, but Travolta says, "I haven't experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so why would I communicate something that wasn't true for me?"  

Travolta told the Tampa Bay Times he expected the same reaction from Tom Cruise.

He says he has no plans to watch "Going Clear" ... which he called the product of "people who were disgruntled with their experiences." 

Travolta added he couldn't have got through tragedies like his son Jett's death without the church's "technology" ... and added, Scientology has "been so beautiful for me, that I can't even imagine attacking it."

Larry Flynt

Thanks for the Giant Payday, Gwyneth!

4/7/2015 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Larry Flynt ignored the three L's of real estate by selling his Hustler store building to Gwyneth Paltrow ... because he just couldn't turn down the boatload of cash on the table. 

Flynt was leaving Mr. Chow when our photog asked about his decision to sell the landmark Sunset Strip space.

The Hustler king admitted ... he's moving his store to a less desirable location -- Hollywood and Highland area -- but at point, everyone has a price.

Flynt doubts he'll ever go to Gwyneth's hoity-toity club -- The Arts Club --  where poetry readings will be the entertainment of the evening ... unless of course, the performer is wearing a ball gag.

'Charlie's Angels' Jaclyn Smith

Hello Angel ...

69 and Looking Fine

4/7/2015 5:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0407-jaclyn-smith-akmgsi-02Former "Charlie's Angels" star Jaclyn Smith may have hung up her gun garter but she's still smokin' ... at 69 years old!

Smith -- who will turn 70 in October -- was out shopping in Beverly Hills on Monday ... and it's obvious SoCal living has been VERY good to her.  

We'd say the 70s and 80s sex symbol should bottle her beauty secrets and sell them, but she already has. Jaclyn's a bonafide mogul who's made MILLIONS off her home and beauty products.

Jeff Gordon

Hey Tom Cruise ...

Bring Back Cole Trickle!

4/6/2015 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's been 25 years since Cole Trickle punked Russ Wheeler and took the Daytona 500 ... but according to Jeff Gordon, it's time to get his ass back on the track ... in a "Days of Thunder" sequel!

FYI -- after the movie came out in 1990, there were rumors that Cole was loosely based on Gordon (even though it was really based on the late NASCAR driver Tim Richmond). 

So, when we saw Gordon out in D.C. today -- we had to ask how he felt about a possible remake ... and JG was all about it. 

Unfortunately, there aren't any plans for a "Part 2" yet ... but Cruise is reportedly signed on to star in another racing movie called "Go Like Hell."

It's no Cole Trickle ... but there are rumors Brad Pitt could co-star in the flick. So, that should get your engines going. 

Mickey Rourke

Who's Rob Gronkowski?!

'I Stopped Watching Football'

4/6/2015 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mickey Rourke doesn't know who the hell Rob Gronkowski is ... doesn't care either ... 'cause the actor tells TMZ Sports he practically gave up on the NFL when Dan Marino retired. 

The "Iron Man 2" star was out in L.A. this weekend -- and we asked if he had any tips for athletes like Gronk who are trying to make it in Hollywood. 

Rourke's answer is hilarious ... 

"What made them great athletes is gonna make 'em good actors ... they've got discipline and f**king that kind of sh*t," Rourke said. 

"You don't have to be a rocket scientist to be an actor."

Kevin Connolly

Everyone Wanted a Part in 'Entourage'

Except For ...

4/5/2015 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Connolly says the "Entourage" cameo wish list was fulfilled with the exception of one BIG star.

Kevin was leaving The Nice Guy nightclub in WeHo Saturday, when we asked about the most elusive big star.

Producers pretty much got what they wanted ... special appearances by Pharrell, Tom Brady, Liam Neeson, Calvin Harris, Jessica Alba, Ronda Rousey, Billy Bob Thorton and Haley Joel Osment.

But one guy said no.  Hint ... he's big in physical stature, but way bigger in global stature. 

Rob Gronkowski

I'm Such a Good Cop

I Didn't Even Audition for the Role

4/4/2015 8:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski answers to Officer Weadon ... because he IS Officer Weadon.

Our photog spotted Gronk and company cruising Bev Hills Friday where he called out the faux cop's name.  Gronk doesn't get it at first, but then the real story unfolds.

Turns out Patriot's tight end played the man in blue in an upcoming movie, "You Can't Have It."  

Gronk's manager, Henry Penzi -- one of Mark Wahlberg's boys -- makes it clear, there's life after football. In fact, Gronk is such a natural, he didn't even have to read for the role.

BTW ... Gronk spills the beans on his action star inspiration.

Rob Gronkowski

I'M A COP NOW

(At Least in My New Movie)

4/3/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

rob_gronkowski_joanna_krupa_movie_launch2Gronk got another movie role!!!

Rob Gronkowski grabbed his badge and his gun to play a cop for the new flick, "You Can't Have It" -- which stars Joanna Krupa and Armand Assante

Unclear what the movie's about -- but Rob ain't the only Gronk with a role ... his brother Dan Gronkowski also plays a cop. 

It's a big move for Gronk who previously told us he's into the Hollywood scene -- and at the very least, he's flirting with the idea of becoming a movie star after his playing days are over.  

Mickey Rourke to Pacquiao:

I Don't Want Free Tix

I'd Rather Watch at Home

4/3/2015 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mickey Rourke says he doesn't care that Manny Pacquiao's camp won't hook him up with free fight tickets -- 'cause he doesn't wanna go anyway!!!! 

Anyone buyin' that? 

As we previously reported, Pac's promoter Bob Arum told Mickey he'd have to buy "his own damn tickets" if he wanted to be ringside ... even though he and Manny train at the same L.A. boxing gym. 

But when we got Mickey out yesterday, not only did he blow off the ticket thing ... the 62-year-old also told us he wants to get back in the ring himself!! 

You know ... 'cause it went so well last time.
