Jennifer Lawrence

I Got Real Pumped

To Eat at Reality Star's Restaurant

11/24/2014 10:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Jennifer Lawrence Lisa Vanderpump RestaurantJennifer Lawrence cozied up to one of the stars of her favorite show Saturday night in West Hollywood ... and TOTALLY fangirl'ed out.

The "Hunger Games" star hit up Pump with her friends and we're told Lisa Vanderpump hooked JLaw up with the best seat in the house ... and then snapped a pic with the group.

It's interesting ... When the actress walked in no one noticed her and she was seated in the less desirable outside area facing Santa Monica Blvd. When Vanderpump realized what was up, Jennifer was moved to Lisa's personal table.

Jennifer was drinking Pump-tinis and Lisa's Sangria. 

Lawrence has confessed she LOVES reality TV ... and the Instagram video makes it clear ... in her head Vanderpump Rules.

Dean Cain

Yeah, I Took Brooke Shields' Virginity

11/21/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dean Cain Brooke Shields VirginityDean Cain says Brooke Shields is right on the money when she says she was deflowered by Superman and was so flummoxed by the experience she ran screaming down the hall naked.

Our photog got Dean at LAX Wednesday ... and asked about Brooke's new book in which she describes in great detail losing her virginity to him.

Dean's a gentleman and is cautious at first -- not having read the book -- but when our guy told him Brooke had good things to say, he was down with the whole story.

BTW ... our guy referred to it as her "experience" with Dean, and he made it clear ... they had a whole lot more than an experience.

Ryan Gosling

My Stalker

Thinks We're Soulmates

11/20/2014 3:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120_ryan_gosling_tmzRyan Gosling just got a restraining order against a woman he says has been stalking him for 3 months because she believes she's his "twin flame."

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Gosling says Grace Marie Del Villar has been sending harassing emails and packages ... in one case she sent a torn-out page from a magazine featuring Eva Mendes and stapled a copy of her contact info to the page.

She has also bombarded the inbox of Ryan's sister with messages, saying, "I am kicking your brother's head."

The tipping point came on Oct. 28th, when Del Villar traveled from NYC to L.A. and showed up at Gosling's family residence, rang the security gate and said she was "Ryan's twin." She left a doll catalog at the gate.

She's ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ryan, Eva, and their daughter Esmeralda.

His sister Mandi also got a restraining order against the stalker.

Marlon Wayans

I Call All My Friends N Word

Even White Chicks

EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans N Word
Marlon Wayans
has just filed legal docs defending an Instagram post in which he called an extra from his movie "Haunted House 2" a n**** and a Cleveland lookalike ... saying the N-word is a term of endearment, and the dude DOES look like Cleveland.

Marlon says in the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- he grew up in the projects of NYC, where black men and women frequently used the N-word (with both an "a" and an "r") as a colloquial term of camaraderie.

Wayans says he doesn't restrict use of the word to his black friends, bragging in his declaration he calls his "Haunted House 2" co-star Jaime Pressly the N-word too.  And get this ... Jaime filed her own declaration saying, "Mr. Wayans has addressed me as n**** in the past and frequently uses it as a term of endearment with his friends and family."

As for the photo that triggered the lawsuit ... Marlon says it's ridiculous. Pierre Daniel posed for the pic and even has a scene in the movie where he's referred to as Cleveland.

So separated at birth.

Ex-En Vogue Singer

I Want Money for Lifetime Movie

Or I'll Sue!

11/20/2014 1:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120_en_vogue_lifetime_getty2Former En Vogue singer Dawn Robinson will sue Lifetime if it dares to air a movie about the group that doesn't include her character.
 
Lifetime has "En Vogue Christmas" on its schedule this weekend ... it's a fictional movie about a family that convinces the group to reunite to save a local concert house.  Issue is, Dawn's character is nowhere to be seen. Two of the original 4 members of the group are in the flick.

Dawn has a problem ... she gave up all "En Vogue" rights years ago after leaving the group in '97.

Robinson says, at the very least, she will boycott Lifetime, telling us ... "I have no interest in watching it. It looks horrible. I'm sad for them. ... After seeing the Aaliyah biopic, I'm extremely worried that this is going to be a trainwreck."

Lifetime had no comment.

'Gangster Squad' Star

Now That I'm Famous ...

My High School BF Is Stalking Me

11/20/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Haley Strode Stalker
"Gangster Squad" star Haley Strode claims she's being cyber-stalked by an ex-BF she hasn't seen since high school ... who's on a mission from God to help her win an Oscar.

Strode claims in court docs ... Brent Jones recently started harassing her online ... creeping her out with messages of love and saying God has directed him to be with her -- even though she hasn't laid eyes on him for 13 years.

One message reads, "As long as I help you get your dream of winning an Oscar, I don't care how my story plays out!!"

Strode says she didn't reply at first ... but eventually sent him a message begging him to stop: "To me, not responding signified that I didn't reciprocate, nor do I want to be friends with you." She added, "My 'liking' a post that you shared about my film, does not equate to a subliminal message that you need to 'decode.'"

Strode got a restraining order ... but says she's still scared because Jones claims to be on his way to L.A. so he can be with her.

EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Gimenez Home RobbedMovie and reality star Jennifer Gimenez will be wearing the finest Ross dresses for her next fancy event ... because all her good stuff has been stolen.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ  ... the "Blow" actress came home to her L.A. home Monday afternoon and found her front window wide open and the screen thrown to the ground.

Sources close to Jennifer say that she went inside and, to her horror, found several rooms torn apart and $20,000 worth of jewelry, Gucci and Louis Vuitton handbags missing.

It happened in broad daylight, yet as far as we can tell there were no witnesses.

The good news ... her little pooch Mickey was home at the time but apparently he wasn't enough of a designer dog to entice the thieves.

EXCLUSIVE

Sean Penn and Charlize Theron had their morning hike interrupted by cops Thursday ... after another hiker accused them of possibly mistreating Charlize's toddler ... but we're told cops determined they did nothing wrong ... TMZ has learned.

The incident went down at Vasquez Rocks in Santa Clarita, CA. Charlize and Sean were having a sunrise picnic when a female hiker with a camera stopped after she heard Charlize's 2-year-old son Jackson screaming in a tantrum. The hiker went towards the child and started filming.

We're told Charlize told the woman not to go near Jackson, so the hiker left and called the cops and claimed something bad might have happened to the kid.

We're told the deputies quickly determined nothing happened. Jackson was just on a timeout and got really upset. The deputies concluded the timeout involved no physical contact, so they left and no action will be taken.

Disney Actress

I Was Teenage Elsa In 'Frozen' ...

And All I Got Was A Lousy $926

11/12/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Teenage Elsa Voice
"Frozen" actress Spencer Lacey Ganus could use a better agent ... because even though she starred as teeange Elsa in the biggest animated film ever ... she got paid pennies. 

The 15-year-old voiced one of the most iconic characters in Disney history ... but only got a one-day guaranteed payment of $926.20 ... this according to her contract which was filed with the court.

Granted she only had a few lines. Another actress played young Elsa, and Idina Menzel was the voice of grown-up Elsa. 

Nonetheless ... the movie grossed more than 1.2 BILLION. So Ganus' slice of the pie is .000077%.   

Let it go Spencer.
