Kiefer Sutherland I Played Hockey With Tim Robbins ... He's A Hard Hitter

9/26/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kiefer Sutherland is a HUGE hockey fan ... and although he doesn't hit the ice as much as he used to ... he still remembers which celebrity opponent delivered the hardest check.

TMZ Sports ran into the "Designated Survivor" star ... who tells us Tim Robbins is no joke on skates. 

Since Robbins, who's 6'5'', has a clear height advantage over Sutherland (5'9'') ... we had to ask his strategy against the 'Shawshank Redemption' star.

Check out the clip!

9/20/2016 6:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0920_curtis-hanson_gettyOscar winning director and writer Curtis Hanson died at a home in the Hollywood Hills Tuesday afternoon ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us paramedics went to the home, responding to a call of an unconscious man. We're told Hanson was pronounced dead at the scene, and it appears to have been a heart attack.

Hanson won an Oscar in 1998 for his "L.A. Confidential" screenplay, which he also directed. He famously directed Eminem's Hollywood debut in "8 Mile" ... as well as "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," "The River Wild" and "In Her Shoes."

Chris Pratt Don't Cuss At Me! Flips on Autograph Hounds

9/20/2016 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Pratt put a "fan" in his place for throwing a hissy fit over missing out on an autograph after Chris took time to sign a whole bunch of 'em.

The autograph seekers were swarming at LAX when Chris -- one of the nicest guys we see around town -- walked to his waiting SUV. You'll see in the video ... he kindly stopped to sign photos, but as he got inside the vehicle things got ugly.

Truth is, many autograph seekers make cash off selling celebrity John Hancocks -- which Chris says he doesn't mind -- but he hit his breaking point when one accused him of being selfish.

Watch what happened when Chris stood up for himself.

Michael Rapaport 'Aielloes' Jay Cutler 'You Motherf*****! You're Leaving the Game?!'

9/20/2016 8:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Rapaport channeled his inner Danny Aiello to scream at Jay Cutler Monday night -- blasting the Bears QB as a "mayonnaise and newspaper breath smelling motherf*****."

It's hilarious ... Rapaport's obviously paying tribute to Aiello's character in "Do the Right Thing."

Olympic Protester Tommie Smith I'm Boycotting James Woods ... Calling Kaep A 'Dirtbag' Is Wrong

9/17/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0916_tommie-smith-james-woods_nfl_tmz_gettyTommie Smith ... one half of the iconic Black Power demonstration from the '68 Olympics ... says he's done watching James Woods movies ... 'cause Woods called Colin Kaepernick a "dirtbag."

Woods has been all over Kaep -- and the NFL -- telling our cameras he's boycotting the league for it's refusal to discipline the 49ers QB over his national anthem protest.

But it's Woods' name-calling of Kaepernick on Twitter -- where he called Kaep a "piece Of S@#t" and a "dirtbag" -- that has Smith steaming mad.

Of course, Smith and fellow sprinter John Carlos are the OG's of the sports protest game ... creating an iconic image at the '68 Olympics in Mexico by raising their fists in the air for Black power.

0912_1968-Olympic-Games_tommie_smith-sub-gettyTMZ Sports spoke with Smith and he told us the personal insults aimed at Colin aren't fair ... and because of them, he can no longer support Woods' movie career.

"James Woods used to be one of my favorite actors ... but if he thinks he is dirt because of what he did then I am crossing him of my list because he is wrong."

Smith went on to say he totally disagrees with Woods' view that Kaerpernick's protest is disrespectful ... and is urging the Academy Award nominee to take a hard look at the issues.

"I think James should look a bit deeper, and focus on the reason [Colin] did what he did."

Choke on that.

Michelle Rodriguez Lighten Up, People ... I'm Bisexual, Never Transphobic!!

9/16/2016 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle Rodriguez doesn't think anyone will be offended by her new movie ... because her own sexuality proves she'd never hurt transgender people or anyone in the LGBT community.

We got the "Fast & Furious" star at LAX talking about her role in the action film "(Re) Assignment" -- in which she plays a male assassin who undergoes a sex change against his will by a deranged surgeon.

It's clear she's peeved about the controversy ... and has some simple advice for any haters.

Take a look at what Michelle had to go through to play the role of Tomboy.

Heheheh at TIFF promoting 'TomBoy A Revengers Tale' producers are convinced the new movie title should be re-assignment but I'll stick to the title I signed on to shoot... 'Tomboy'. It's in the B Movie genre, a culture shock pic, shot like a 'film Noir' graphic novel. I played a male assassin for four days in the movie, boy was that beard itchy. Then out revenge, a twisted Doctor played by Sigourney Weaver decides to take my character's manhood away with a sex change to teach him a lesson. I never felt more like a woman than when I played a man. For the rest of the film I was a man stuck in a newly operated sex changed body. I had fake boob covers to look like man implants & I wore a fake hairy 'mangina' which you can't really see cause they made it so hairy. In retrospect I'm I glad took the plunge, the industry seems to be running low on edgy creativity & 'real take a chance' controversy, sometimes it makes me want to scream, instead I did what I always do when I'm bored with the 'status quo', I shot crazy b movie Indy to express my frustration. I wish I had more than a few weeks to prepare for this flic, I would have gained a lot more weight, & we would have made some hairy arms to match my Mediterranean look. I feel that my skinny build sometimes comes off hermaphoditic in the film, especially when you add the crazy male chest for the nude sequences. Lol hope y'all will enjoy the flic sometime, when we sell it of course... It's interesting to say the least.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Angela Bassett Is Proof 'Black Don't Crack'

9/16/2016 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Move over, Denzel Washington and Halle Berry ... Angela Bassett is the latest example of "black don't crack" in Hollywood, according to her co-star Cuba Gooding Jr.

We got Cuba out in WeHo Thursday and asked him if it was weird Bassett was playing his sister now on "American Horror Story" despite playing his mom 25 years ago in "Boyz N the Hood." 

Doesn't seem like Cuba sees any wrinkles in their working relationship ... 


Marvin Gaye Son Rips 'Sexual Healing' Movie ... It's Hot Garbage

9/16/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915-marvin-gaye-movie-poster-sexual-healing-01Marvin Gaye's son is ready to go to war again in court ... this time to shut down the release of a biopic about his father, which he calls pure trash.

Marvin Gaye III tells TMZ ... no one in his family is backing "Sexual Healing" -- the film music mogul Vassal Benford is producing.

Gaye III's got a lot of problems with what he's seen of the film. He says it's untrue, exploitative, with a ton of holes and worst of all ... doesn't "hold the vibe of my father."

He adds the family's attorney has already been contacted, and -- perhaps buoyed by their success in the "Blurred Lines" case -- they're confident the movie won't see the light of day.

As for Benford, he tells us it's full steam ahead, and several superstars will be involved in recording the soundtrack. He even bought a baller ring as a gift for himself ... to celebrate making the movie.

So, that's what's going on.

Denzel Washington Moustache Meme Trolls Are LOSERS!

9/14/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Y'know those Denzel Washington memes about his moustache that you've been laughing about -- well, Denzel ain't laughing. At all. In fact, he's got some strong words for the Internet.

For the first time, Denzel talked about all those images that popped up after he went to the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight sporting a Yosemite Sam handlebar moustache. The Internet had a field day (seriously, Google it) ... but when entertainment host Xilla brought it up, Denzel got gangsta.

Check out the clip -- Xilla simply asked what he thought about the memes, and DW said, "If I had my wallet I'd show you." It gets worse after that.

Btw, the real reason for the facial hair -- Denzel was filming 'Magnificent Seven' at the time with director Antoine Fuqua ... who's sitting next to him in this clip.

"King Kong ain't got nuthin' on me" ... definitely comes to mind here.
