Oscar-winning producer and entertainment exec Alan Ladd Jr., who’s backed films like “Braveheart” and “Chariots of Fire,” is ending his nearly 30-year marriage.
If the name Cindra Ladd sounds familiar, it’s because she’s one of many women who have come forward and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. Cindra had been working for film producer Ray Stark in NY when she met Cosby in '69 and claims he drugged and raped her.
Here's what's interesting ... Cindra and Alan married in 1985 and the date of separation on the legal docs is listed as March 14, 2015 ... two months after Cindra went public with her Bill Cosby story.
They have no minor children together. Alan was already a big-time producer when they got hitched, and had already served as Prez of Twentieth Century Fox.
He wants to block the court from awarding Cindra spousal support.
Val Kilmer's turning tumbleweed into gold, and a small fortune ... TMZ has learned.
Val is selling an actual tumbleweed he bronzed and dipped in 22k gold ... for a cool $150,000. Luxury boutique Just One Eye got the piece Tuesday in L.A.
We're told the piece -- aptly titled "Tumbleweed" -- symbolizes Val's childhood growing up in New Mexico. His granddaddy was a gold miner, so the art's got family roots. Plus, "Tombstone" ... 'cause that movie's awesome.
Good news for interested buyers, it comes with a Val signature.
There ain't a damn thing basic about Sharon Stone these days -- she's still rocking a bikini top and board shorts and looking good with 60 right around the corner.
Sharon showed off her bod while shooting her new flick, "A Little Something for Your Birthday," on Zuma Beach in Malibu. These pics prove she's still in the game -- and she's got some too when it comes to beach volleyball.
George Clooney is sticking out like a sore thumb on the set of his new film "Suburbicon" ... and not because he's better looking than everyone else. Although that's probably true.
The movie's set in the 1950s -- which explains all the vintage rides -- but George was sporting jeans and a polo shirt, dressing nothing like a gent of that era. It's cool though, he's only appearing behind the camera for this one ... directing the shoot in Fullerton, CA. His pal Matt Damon's the star.
Check out the shots of director Clooney in action.
Fun fact: This is his 6th time directing a feature film.
"This Is Spinal Tap" star and co-creator Harry Shearer says he's been getting the short end of the stick for the legendary movie ... to the tune of $125 million.
Shearer's production company just filed suit against Vivendi -- which owns Universal Studios -- and handles accounting on all merchandise and music related to the 1984 mockumentary. According to docs, Vivendi claims the movie's 4 creators -- Shearer, Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Rob Reiner -- were only owed a whopping $81 for merch, and $98 for music sales ... up until 2006.
Think about it ... that's $179, split 4 ways! The numbers are astoundingly low, if the lawsuit is correct. Shearer -- who also does a ton of voices on "The Simpsons" -- has a two-part solution.
First, he wants Vivendi to fork over $125 mil. Then, he wants his own company, Century of Progress Productions, to take over the film's trademarks.
Doesn't sound like they're gonna do Stonehenge tomorrow.
Warren G's confesses he's a huge fan of the '80s western "Young Guns" -- after all, his hit song, "Regulate," opens with a quote from the movie -- but we had no idea how deep his knowledge goes on the flick.
Warren was at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater and absolutely lit up when our photog brought up the movie -- which starred Emilio Estevez as Billy the Kid and his bro, Charlie Sheen, as the leader of a band of cowboys called the Regulators.
Check it out -- Warren told us about his Hollywood encounters with the stars, but added he still has one major "Young Guns" goal to accomplish.
That ass kicking at the hands of Mickey Gall won't save CM Punk from the Green Power Ranger ... 'cause Jason David Frank says he's still itching to put his superpowered boot across Punk's face.
We got the 7th degree black belt (that's right, the Green Ranger could legit kick your ass) -- out in NYC and he told us he's talking to Bellator about a fighting contract ... and Punk is his main target.
You might remember he called Punk out some time ago only to be mocked by the former WWE star ... but that might've changed since CM got served a little humble pie in the Octagon.
Check out the clip -- Frank is serious ... and now that CM Punk's future in the UFC is up in the air ... it might not be the worst idea to step in with JDF ... as long he promises not to morph.
People usually run away from Leatherface, but hundreds came out for the grand opening of The Gas Station ... the key location where "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" was filmed.
Roy Rose, owner of the new Texas BBQ joint and motel, tells TMZ ... they had a packed house -- people waited in line almost 3 hours. He says they hired a cook for the opening, and the trial run went so well he's now their full-time guy.
We're told a ton of merch was sold in the gift shop, and special guests included Ed Neal and Ed Guinn -- who played the hitchhiker and the cattle truck driver in the OG movie. As you can see in the pics ... some other interesting characters showed up too.
Roy says they showed "Texas Chainsaw 3D" on a big screen, and he'll be serving up more killer barbecue Halloween weekend.
So, when we saw Michael B. out at Catch in West Hollywood Tuesday night ... we had to ask the guy -- would you do it???
Good news for Caron, he didn't exactly say no.
Of course, Caron's life story is amazing -- he overcame a hard life as a drug dealing youth to make in the NBA. Wahlberg bought the rights to Caron's story back in March and now a movie is in the works.
In fact, the last time we got Butler out he told us how things are going behind the scenes -- and why he wants Michael B. to play him on-screen.
