Bella Thorne might be trying to become the next model for Carl's Jr., and she's definitely back to hanging out with Scott Disick ... based on these photos.

The 19-year-old actress posed in a bikini while getting a grip on a massive burger -- we're not sure why, but we are sure she was doing it in Scott's backyard.

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Hardwick thinks Wonder Woman's paycheck needs to match Iron Man's ... 'cause the actress playing her is just as good as Robert Downey Jr., if not better.

We got Chris -- who's a certified comic book nerd(ist) for this kind of stuff -- and asked what sort of money Gal Gadot should negotiate for in any coming "Wonder Woman" sequels ... this after learning she earned just $300k for 3 movies each

Chris doesn't mince words -- he says she's in RDJ territory now after 'WW' killed with audiences across the world. And his suggestion is on par with RDJ's salary for at least the last few 'Iron Man' flicks.

Stepping on his metal toes?

'Wonder Woman' Star Gal Gadot Warner Bros., Look Out She Wants Way More than $300k

6/20/2017 8:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Wonder Woman" star Gal Gadot has a message for the studio that produced her mega-hit flick ... open your wallet -- wide.

Reports have surfaced Gadot made just $300,000 for each of the 3 movies she made with the studio -- "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," "Wonder Woman" and the yet-to-be-released "Justice League."

"Wonder Woman" has become the driver of the 2017 box office, pulling in $570 million worldwide in less than 3 weeks.

We're told the $300k is about right, but sources familiar with the negotiations tell TMZ she has "huge performance bonuses" for "Wonder Woman" and she will end up with many times the base salary.

We're also told Gadot is planning a "major renegotiation" of her deal for sequels ... something common when relatively unknown actors make bare bones deals but then hit it big.

Here's what we know about Hollywood ... she's going to be a very rich woman.

Carrie Fisher Died of Sleep Apnea ... Coroner Now Says

6/16/2017 6:17 PM PDT

Carrie Fisher did not die simply from a heart attack, instead it was sleep apnea and a combination of other factors ... according to a new coroner's report.

The L.A. County Coroner released the statement Friday evening, but also said it could not conclusively determine what caused her death. As we reported, Carrie's death certificate says it was a "cardiac arrest" ... but also that further testing would be needed to pinpoint what caused the massive heart attack.

The new report does list heart disease and drug use under "other conditions" leading to her death. It also says she'd taken multiple drugs -- but the coroner could not determine if those drugs were significant enough to trigger the heart attack she suffered aboard a flight.

Carrie died 4 days later on December 27. She was 60.

'All Eyez on Me' Producer Sorry, Jada ... the Movie's Accurate Even If Not Word-for-Word

6/16/2017 4:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jada Pinkett Smith missed the point of "All Eyez on Me" -- the producer wasn't trying to precisely recreate her relationship with Tupac ... instead it's a vision of what he thinks Pac wanted it to be.

L.T. Hutton tells TMZ he's hurt and disappointed Jada decided to blast 'Eyez' for including conversations and situations that never happened in real-life. He explained he and the filmmakers took a few liberties because they were trying to show who Tupac was, who he wanted to be ... and who he had to be.

Hutton says he studied Jada's own words about Pac in interviews, and feels she was fairly represented. He made it clear, he had no intention of hurting her, and last he'd heard ... she was all good with the film.

As we reported, Jada called the movie "deeply hurtful" -- but Hutton says he was "very responsible" about everyone's image in the film.

Jada Pinkett Smith 'All Eyez on Me' Is Filled with Lies About Tupac and Me

6/16/2017 10:19 AM PDT

Jada Pinkett Smith is pissed off about "All Eyez On Me" and how it portrays her relationship with Tupac ... calling the movie, "deeply hurtful."

Jada, who clearly just saw the movie, is taking issue with several scenes, including one where Pac reads her a poem. She says, "I didn't know that poem existed until it was printed in his book."

She also says they never fought backstage at any of his shows ... as they do in the movie.

Jada and Tupac met in high school in the mid '80s. She's described him as one of her best friends, and although they kissed once ... she says it was never a romantic relationship. Jada was even the inspiration for some of his poems that were published after his death.

She does praise Demetrius Shipp and Kat Graham -- who play Pac and Jada -- for their performances ... but definitely shades the screenwriter.

The guy who's playing Tupac Shakur is already calling it quits ... when it comes to reprising the role in any other movies.

We got "All Eyez On Me" star Demetrius Shipp Jr.  -- he was clearly excited about last night's big Hollywood premiere and the positive reviews he's getting. So, we asked if he's down to do what his co-star Jamal Woolard has done ... playing Notorious B.I.G. in 3 movies.

Demetrius explained why he's one and done, but basically ... the guy's got big plans, and Tupac is just the start.

Of course, if he keeps getting props from random celebs on the street, Demetrius might change his mind. As we were talking to him ... this really cool Hollywood moment with Big Boi went down!

We got Congressman Don Beyer -- who reps Virginia's 8th District, including Alexandria -- at Simpson Field Wednesday, where James Hodgkinson opened fire on the GOP's practice sesh ... injuring Rep. Steve Scalise, among others.

He tells our camera guy that this tragedy should get members from both sides of the aisle coming together -- for now, at least -- ahead of Thursday's congressional baseball game ... which is moving forward as scheduled.

Quick side note ... Simpson Field sits near T.C. Williams High School, which is the same school "Remember the Titans" is based on. Beyer's hoping it has the same unifying effect here.
