Harry Potter Star

He's One Hot HuffleBUFF Now!

5/21/2015 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521-matthew-lewis-attitudeThe little kid who became famous as Neville Longbottom from the 'Harry Potter' films is feeling the magic of a full body-bind curse -- 'cause Matthew Lewis is now a bonafide half-naked stud.

The 25-year-old stripped down to his Armani skivvies for a 10 page spread in Attitude magazine, where he’s almost unrecognizable from his old Gryffindork self. 

Even 'Potter' author J.K. Rowling weighed in on Lewis' transformation, saying ... "I will always support you whatever you want to do, Matthew. Now go put some clothes on."

Somewhere Hermione Granger is kicking herself.

Lupita Nyong’o looked so tres bien wearing a bikini in the South of France ... someone in the TMZ newsroom compared her to a food. Offensive! Not because of the metaphor -- but because that's not Lupita at all in the bikini.

Oops! Someone better start 'splainin' ... tmz-on-tv-3

... Balled Out In High School!!

EXCLUSIVE

Did you know ... John Travolta was a jock in high school? 

Turns out, back before he was a world famous movie star ... Travolta says he was a member of his high school hoops squad back in Englewood, New Jersey.

In fact, Travolta says he's got a solid 5 years of experience under his belt ... and still considers himself a pretty big basketball fan.  

So, we had to ask about some pretty shocking poll results that came out over the weekend -- 34% of people believe 52-year-old Michael Jordan would beat LeBron in a 1-on-1 game RIGHT NOW!!! 

Check out Travolta's answer -- it makes sense. 

Meantime, here's some footage of Travolta hoopin' at Rydell High ...

It was no Cannes do for Matthew McConaughey ... his new flick was booed in a big way at the French film festival.

A portion of the audience that screened McConaughey's film, "Sea of Trees" waited until the credits rolled to express their disdain and "booed loudly" according to "Variety."

0516_matt_at_canne-splash_2Matt plays a guy who is distraught over his wife's death and tries to off himself in a forest near Mt. Fuji.

Some of the critics say it was unfair ... that the movie was good, but clearly not according to a chunk of the people who screened it. 

Not surprisingly ... McConaughey kept his cool at a press conference for the film -- saying, "Anyone has as much right to boo as they do to ovate."

Remember .... a .300 average gets you in the Hall of Fame.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

I Got Governor John Kasich

In The Palm of My Hand!

5/16/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger had lunch with his ol' pal, likely Republican presidential candidate John Kasich, and we're told Arnold schooled him about the ins and outs of national politics.

The former Cali Gov and the current Ohio governor chowed down at The Palm in Bev Hills Friday. Our sources say Arnold downloaded Kasich on national politics and how to run a national campaign, even though Arnold's never run one before.

On their way out, they said it was just 2 old friends sharing a meal. But we know it was a lot more.

All aboard the Marvel money train with conductor Chris Evans ... who is already pumped up to go to battle in the next Captain America movie.

Photogs spotted Chris in Atlanta where he's filming, “Captain America: Civil War” alongside Cap’s new rival … Crossbones.

With "Avengers: Age of Ultron" still raking in buckets of cash at a record pace -- these pics have gotta make studio execs drool more than die-hard comic book fans.

Chris in the red, white and blue = green. LOTS of green.

'American Crime Story'

Dead Ringer Cast

For O.J. Simpson Show

5/14/2015 1:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0514-robert-kardashian-david-schwimmer-Robert-Shapiro-John-Travolta-AP-SPLASH-GETTY-PCN-01Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden are going to have serious flashbacks after seeing these photos of David Schwimmer, John Travolta and Selma Blair decked out in their 'American Crime Story' duds.

The trio -- who play Robert Kardashian, Robert Shapiro and Kris Jenner, respectively -- were on set Thursday filming the FX show about the O.J. Simpson trial.

Schwimmer looks eerily like the Kardashian patriarch, right down to the patch of grey hair in the front. 

Momager Jenner gave the cast her blessing to a TMZ photog just the other day ... and now that we've seen them on set ... it's hard to argue.

Johnny Depp

Dogs Kill Sheep

So Get Your Yorkies Out of Australia, Or Else

5/14/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0514-johnny-depp-amber-heard-splash

Johnny Depp's 2 tiny dogs are capable of wreaking havoc in the Australian animal kingdom, and that's why the dogs now have a target on their adorable heads.

The Minister for Agriculture, Barnaby Joyce, tells TMZ, Johnny and Amber Heard are not giving due respect to the enormous problem the country faces with animals. Joyce says wild dogs kill up to 40 sheep a night ... though we're guessing none of the offenders are Yorkies. 

But size doesn't matter, because Joyce adds they have a real interest in making sure dogs that come into the country are free of disease so Australians can walk their pooches with confidence they won't get sick.

As we reported, Johnny and Amber apparently smuggled Boo and Pistol into the country without the proper quarantine and now authorities say if the dogs aren't out of the country by Saturday, they'll be destroyed.

Johnny Depp

Accused of Pup Smuggling

Dogs Get Death Sentence

breaking news

0513-johnny-depp-dogs

Captain Jack Sparrow got carried away with the smuggling -- Johnny Depp's 2 Yorkshire Terrier pups have a death sentence hanging over their heads because Depp allegedly snuck them into Australia.

Australian officials say Johnny and Amber Heard failed to declare Boo and Pistol when they arrived on a private jet last month. Under Australian law the dogs are supposed to be quarantined for a minimum of 10 days ... just to make sure they're not carrying any foreign diseases into the fragile ecosystem.

If Johnny, or more accurately ... Boo and Pistol don't hightail it out of Oz by Saturday -- the country's Agriculture minister says they will be put down.

A rep for Johnny -- who's down there shooting the 5th 'Pirates' flick -- told the AP the dogs are under a "home quarantine" ... but wasn't more specific than that.

Pretty harrrrsh sentence ... but Aussie officials say the law is the law.

Kris Jenner

Schwimmer's Gonna Nail My Ex

& Selma Blair Playing Me ...

5/13/2015 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Schwimmer will not be stuck in 2nd gear when it comes to playing Robert Kardashian -- at least according to Kris Jenner ... who gave him tips on how to nail the role.

The Queen of the Kardashian Klan gushed about Schwimmer Tuesday night outside of Craig's -- where she did dinner with BFF Melanie Griffith.

Schwimmer's playing Kris' ex-husband -- and O.J. Simpson's pal -- for Ryan Murphy's "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson." As for Kris herself ... Selma Blair will be filling her shoes ...

And yes ... Kris gave her a review too. Check it out. 

Sylvester Stallone

I'm Not Putting Pacquiao

In 'Expendables 4'

5/13/2015 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

More heartbreaking news for the Philippines ... Manny Pacquiao is OUT of "Expendables 4."

In fact, Sylvester Stallone tells TMZ Sports he was never really IN in the first place. 

Rumors have been circulating for months that Pacman would make an appearance in the flick -- which isn't really a stretch considering Sly put other fighters like Victor Ortiz, Randy Couture and Ronda Rousey in "Expendables 3."

Plus, Manny and Sylvester are pals ... and Sly didn't really deny it when we asked him about the movie last month

But Stallone finally put the rumors to bed Tuesday in Beverly Hills ... explaining why Manny's a no-go ... but guys like Arnold Schwarzenegger will probably get the nod instead. 

Sorry Manny.

EXCLUSIVE

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Terry Crews knows what it takes to make the jump from the NFL to Hollywood ... and he STRONGLY believes 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is primed to follow in his famous footsteps. 

For the record, Davis has been making a serious push into acting -- recently starring as "Captain Torpedo" in a short film that made it to the final 10 in HBO's "Project Greenlight" competition.

Well, clearly Crews was impressed ... telling TMZ Sports he doesn't only think the guy has serious "flavor" on screen -- but he's spoken with Davis and gave the guy some real advice about making the Hollywood transition.

So ... buddy comedy in the future?!?!?
