Elizabeth Warren Men Can't Work Without Women ... Relax, Soderbergh

1/23/2018 2:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Elizabeth Warren says director Steven Soderbergh's got nothing to worry about when it comes to a potential #MeToo backlash against women in the workplace.

We got Senator Warren Tuesday on Capitol Hill where she addressed Soderbergh's concern that men might just stop hiring women, instead of changing their own behavior.

She's super confident women will persist -- much like herself -- and lays out exactly what they have to offer. As the Senator put it to us ... "women been gettin' it done for a long time."

Elon Musk, Amber Heard Something's Fishy On Wrapped-Up Sushi Date

1/23/2018 9:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Last we heard, Elon Musk and Amber Heard were "not back together" even though they kiss goodbye and dance real close ... sorry, we're not buying that now.

Amber and Elon went on a sushi date Monday in WeHo, and looked like the full-blown hand-holding couple that's definitely on again. But that's only because that's exactly what they are -- no matter how many times they try to say they're not reunited.

We broke the story ... Elon and Amber started hanging out again this past fall ... after announcing their split in the summer. Since then, they've smooched and gone dancing together.

If it looks like a reunited duck, walks like a reunited duck ...

James Franco A Little Surf Before A Lotta Snub

1/23/2018 6:58 AM PST

James Franco tried riding out the storm on a surfboard Monday -- but it didn't work ... 'cause he wiped out a day later.

Paps got James Monday in Malibu surfing with some pals, and he actually seemed pretty chipper  ...  but his mood probably changed Tuesday after missing out on a Best Actor nomination.

Lots of folks are claiming snub, especially since he won a Golden Globe and Critics' Choice Award -- he was also nominated for a SAG Award.

Looks like those accusations were simply too much for the Academy ... bummer, dude.

1/23/2018 7:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Keegan-Michael Key was laughing, but we hope he was dead serious -- he wants Jordan Peele to return to acting for a "Key & Peele" reunion.

We got the funny man Monday at LAX where Keegan beamed with pride about Jordan, who just nabbed 2 Oscar nominations for "Get Out." We also asked Keegan about what Jordan said a couple days ago -- he's joining Sir Daniel Day-Lewis and quitting acting.

Not so fast ... says Keegan, who definitely looks like he's holding his breath for an iconic "Key & Peele" reunion which sadly ended after just 5 seasons.

EXCLUSIVE

Mark Wahlberg denies being a steroid user ... saying his yolked bod is "all natural" and a result of "hard work."

We got Mark Monday in L.A. and asked about allegations that he, Josh Duhamel and WWE star Roman Reigns were clients of a now-jailed roid dealerRichard Rodriguez

Mark's adamant -- his gains come from nothing else but his own work ethic. He even bashes steroid use, saying it screws with your health.

As for any potential legal action ... it sounds like Marky Mark's just trying to put this thing behind him. Josh and Roman seem down with that, too. Both have also denied steroid use.

Dominic Monaghan Sues You Screwed Up My Yard And You Didn't Have a License to Do It!

1/22/2018 7:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dominic Monaghan had some landscaping done at his place by a guy he thought was qualified to do the job -- but turned out to be far from it ... this according to a new lawsuit.

The "Lord of the Rings" and "Lost" star just filed suit against Bruce De Luis, who Monaghan says presented himself as a contractor last year and agreed to do some work on his L.A. property -- installing steps and a stone patio, as well as general landscaping. 

Monaghan claims he shelled out a total of $53,840 for the job, but eventually came to find a bunch of defects and a substandard end product. He says he got a new estimate from a licensed contractor for the repairs, which came out to about $21,000. 

When he went back to De Luis -- who Monaghan claims didn't have a contractor's license to begin with -- the actor says the guy told him to get lost ... refusing to reimburse him for the alleged sloppy work.

Monaghan's asking a judge to force De Luis to fork over his original expenses and other damages.

Breaking News

Hollywood's oldest working actress, Connie Sawyer, died at home after an incredibly long and prolific career.

Connie reportedly passed away at her Woodland Hills home. Unclear exactly how, but she was 105 ... so presumably it's related to her age. 

The longtime actress got her start in Tinseltown at the age of 18, and has over 140 acting credits to her name -- most of which were TV roles.

Sawyer's been on a number of hit shows over her six-decade career, including "The Jackie Gleason Show," "The Andy Griffith Show," "All in the Family," 'Mary Tyler Moore,' "Starsky & Hutch," "Seinfeld," ... and on and on.

She's also starred in movies like "Dumb and Dumber," "Pineapple Express," "When Harry Met Sally..." and "The Way West."

SAG Awards 2018 1st Ever Host, Lots O' Color & Franco ... Go Behind the Scenes

1/21/2018 7:04 PM PST

The 24th annual SAG Awards was a mixed bag -- with the Time's Up movement as a backdrop ... there were some things (and people) we didn't expect to see. 

For starters ... Kristen Bell served as the award show's first-ever host -- and she kicked off an all-female ensemble of presenters for the night ... most of whom spoke out in support of Time's Up.

James Franco was also in attendance, despite recently being accused of sexual misconduct. Aziz Ansari, on the other hand, skipped the show amid his own allegations.

Morgan Freeman called out a would-be talker during his Lifetime Achievement award speech ... and women appeared to abandon the wardrobe blackout they adopted at the Globes.

Like we said ... tons of surprises. Go behind the scenes to check out the rest. 

Morgan Freeman at SAG Awards Calls Out Front Row Chatterbox In Lifetime Achievement Speech

1/21/2018 6:42 PM PST

Morgan Freeman awkwardly called someone out during his Lifetime Achievement award speech at the SAG Awards Sunday ... but the person's identity remains a mystery. 

Freeman was just about to launch into his acceptance speech when he stopped and zeroed in on someone in the front row, who appeared to be talking and distracting him.

The legendary actor didn't let it go -- if anything, he dragged it out by saying ... "Hey ... I'm talking to you. Yeah, hey." He finally finished with ... "Okay, well you just stand out to me. That's all" before continuing with the rest of his speech.

We're digging to identify the culprit, but lesson learned to whomever that was ... don't interrupt Morgan Freeman!!

'The Dark Tower' Young Star Will Make Big Bucks IF He's in Sequels

1/22/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Taylor -- the young actor who plays Jake in "The Dark Tower" -- got a nice payday for his work in the film, but the big bucks are (hopefully) yet to come ... TMZ has learned.

According to the 16-year-old's contract ... Tom banked $125k for his role in the movie alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey -- which is nice -- but will make double if he makes it into a sequel ... and $500k if there's a third installment. He'll also haul in $30k per episode if he lands the Jake role in a TV adaptation of Stephen King's story.

Here's the problem -- the movie massively disappointed critics after its summer release and reportedly barely broke even at the box office, taking in $111 million worldwide.

Since then, talk of a sequel's been muted, and even King has expressed concern about a TV project ... saying it would probably need to be a complete reboot.

Guess that's just show business, kid.

SAG Awards 2018 Ladies Ditch the Black Outfits ... Still Boast 'Time's Up'

1/21/2018 3:19 PM PST

Early arrivals for the 24th annual SAG Awards were quite telling ... 'cause a lot of the women appear to have abandoned the blackout for "Time's Up."

It was obvious Sunday as celebs made their way to the Shrine Auditorium that many of the ladies decided against wearing black in support of the movement -- unlike the Golden Globes a few weeks ago, when the blackout was practically unanimous.

Some of the stars who avoided black wardrobe so far include Alison Brie, Erin Lim, Renee Bargh, Giuliana Rancic, Lilliana Vazquez, and Keltie Knight

What's interesting ... a lot of red carpet personalities are talking "Time's Up" and speculating it'll be a major conversation piece throughout the night. 

No major speeches on the subject just yet ... but it's probably only a matter of time. 

Harvey Weinstein Too Low to Spoof Even For Porn Execs

1/21/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein won't be parodied by the porn industry because the allegations made against him are just too nasty.

We talked to a bunch of porn execs who tell us straight-up ... they feel Harvey's alleged conduct was  disgusting ... so he won't get the Tiger Woods' spoof treatment .

WoodRocket is the premiere porn spoof company. They've done a ton, including "Ten Inch Mutant Ninja Turtles." WoodRocket producer Lee Roy Myers tells us, "WoodRocket.com" would never do a parody of somebody or something that hurt people."

As we've reported ... scores of women have accused Harvey of sexual misconduct, harassment or rape. That's all the reason porn execs needed to nix a Weinstein parody.

Joanna Angel -- founder of BurningAngel.com -- tells TMZ, "There are certain aesthetic standards for today's male performers, and there is no one who remotely comes close to looking like Harvey Weinstein, nor should there be."

The Making of a SAG Award Get 'Em While They're Hot!!!

1/21/2018 12:50 AM PST

Next time you see a celebrity in a fancy suit or dress holding a SAG Award, think of this ... it took at least 3 guys in hazmat suits to make it!

We got pics of the entire casting process that goes into making the award and let's just say, it AIN'T as easy as 1-2-3 because it involves a lot of dangerously hot molten bronze ... hence the suits.

It's incredible and the process is art itself. The trophy -- a naked man holding both a comedy and tragedy mask -- gets fired up several times and dusted with layers of chemicals to get its green color.

If you thought the engraving of Leo's Oscar was cool, this takes things to a whole new level ...
