12/10/2017 3:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Terry Crews says he wasn't expecting to be in TIME's "Person of the Year" cover story -- but thinks the nod only helps his mission ... accountability in Hollywood.

We got the actor Sunday leaving LAX with his wife, Rebecca, and asked how it felt to be featured as one of the many "Silence Breakers" on the magazine's P.O.Y. cover this year.

Terry says he didn't see it coming, and explains why there needs to be more voices speaking out on sexual harassment ... and how this could be just the tip of the iceberg.

He also tells us why he's suing WME and their talent agent, Adam Venit, who allegedly grabbed his junk last year. Long story short ... Hollywood needs an ass-whoopin' on this issue ... and Terry's here to do the honors.

'Ant-Man' Actress Doubles Down!! Sequel Money So Sweet

12/9/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Ant-Man" actress Abby Ryder Fortson's paycheck ain't shrinking like her superhero dad in the movie, because she's bringing home twice the dough for the sequel ... TMZ has learned. 

We got a hold of her minor's contract for the 'Ant-Man' franchise and Abby -- who's only 9, mind you --  was guaranteed $140k if she gets a role in an "Ant-Man" sequel. That's more than twice the $67.5k she got for the first film.

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" hits theaters next July 2018. Might be too soon for buzz, but IF Abby makes it into a third flick, she'll haul in $215k.

In this case, the small guys are winning big.

Charlie Sheen Sues National Enquirer for Defamation

12/8/2017 5:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

6:45 PM PT -- Charlie tells TMZ, "In my nearly 35 years as a celebrated entertainer, I have been nothing shy of a forthright, noble and valiant courier of the truth. Consistently admitting and owning a laundry list of shortcomings, wrongdoings and indiscretions this traveler hath traveled -- however, every man has a breaking point."

Charlie goes on ... "These radically groundless and unfounded allegations end now. I now take a passionate stand against those who wish to even entertain the sick and twisted lies against me. GAME OVER."Charlie Sheen is suing the National Enquirer for an article it published claiming he raped a then 13-year-old Corey Haim.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Sheen says the Enquirer article that ran on Nov. 8 claimed Sheen sodomized Haim while they were filming the movie "Lucas" back in the 1980s. Sheen was 19 at the time.

The article claimed Charlie and Corey smoked pot and had anal sex. The article blames Sheen for putting Haim on a path of drug abuse, which sent him to an early grave.

Charlie has publicly denied the story, and in the lawsuit he points out Corey's own mother has also denied it.

Charlie says Enquirer exec Dylan Howard has a vendetta against him. Charlie believes Howard is pissed because his publication didn't break the story that Charlie has HIV.

He's suing Howard, the National Enquirer and actor Dominick Brascia for defamation and false light. Brascia was quoted in the article, saying Haim told him about the alleged rape.

Hugh Jackman You Trippin', Zac But ... Show Must Go On!!!

12/8/2017 1:00 PM PST

Hugh Jackman laughed his ass off -- and wanted everyone to join in -- when he witnessed Zac Efron falling off a tricycle and tasting asphalt.

Hugh and Zac threw on their circus garb Friday in Midtown Manhattan to film a circus musical for James Corden's late night show. They were promoting "The Greatest Showman" and their co-star Zendaya got in on the action too ... and also busted an LOL at Zac.

We're guessing Zac's caption on this photo gallery would be ... The crap I gotta do to sell a movie.

Just a guess. 

Bryan Singer Talks Firing From 'Bohemian Rhapsody' And Fate of Kevin Spacey

12/8/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bryan Singer was shockingly candid and patient with our photog, who asked him a wide range of questions, from sexual assault allegations, to getting fired from "Bohemian Rhapsody" to allegations involving an actor he made famous -- Kevin Spacey.

We got Singer Thursday coming out of Mel's Drive-In in WeHo and started the conversation by asking about getting 86'd from the flick about Freddie Mercury and Queen. He says at first the firing had nothing to do with the various sexual assault allegations. He says he never got a straight answer from the studio, but a few minutes later certainly suggests the firing was connected to the allegations, saying the studio wouldn't offer a public explanation because "the reason would be, in my opinion, inaccurate and embarrassing."

As for Kevin Spacey, he says actor Gabriel Byrne is just dead wrong when he says "The Usual Suspects" was shut down for a time because of Spacey's behavior. But, when our photog asked if he'd work with Spacey again, Singer said it was a "loaded question."

Finally, Singer says a lawsuit against the studio that just fired him is an option he's considering.

Bryan Singer Sued for Allegedly Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old Boy Singer Denies Allegations

12/7/2017 4:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

7:15 PM PT -- Singer's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, had some additional comments for TMZ ... "Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end ... When Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events."

Brettler adds, "The attorney behind this lawsuit is the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Bryan Singer in 2014. In the end, Egan was forced to dismiss that case once the facts came out and his story completely fell apart."

Famed director Bryan Singer is being sued for allegedly forcing a 17-year-old boy to perform oral sex on him and then raping him, but Singer categorically denies the allegations.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Singer was on a yacht in the Seattle area back in 2003 ... a yacht owned by wealthy tech investor, Lester Waters. The suit claims it was a party populated by young gay males, including the plaintiff, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman.

The suit claims Singer offered to take Guzman, who was 17 at the time, on a tour of the yacht. When they got to one of the rooms, the suit alleges Singer thrust his body on Guzman, forced him to the floor, shoved Guzman's face against his crotch and demanded he perform oral sex.

The suit claims Singer pulled out his penis, smacked Guzman in the face with it and forced it into his mouth. Guzman claims he pleaded with Singer to stop, but he kept going ... causing him to choke.

The suit goes on to allege Singer then forcibly performed oral sex on Guzman. Guzman says he again pleaded with Singer to stop, to no avail. He says Singer then forcibly anally penetrated him, all while ignoring Guzman's pleas.

The suit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, claims Singer later approached Guzman, said he was a powerful Hollywood producer and he could help Guzman get into acting as long as he kept silent. Guzman says Singer warned him no one would believe him, and Singer could hire people to ruin his reputation.

Guzman says he suffered emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain.

A rep for Singer tells TMZ, "The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan. Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case." The rep also says Herman was sued by other defendants related to the Egan case for malicious prosecution and he settled and acknowledged Egan's claims were provably false

L.A. Wildfires Trigger Major Production Halt

12/7/2017 10:44 AM PST
Exclusive Details

The raging L.A. wildfires have brought several Hollywood productions to a screeching halt ... and there's no end in sight.

We're told fires across Southern California -- from Bel-Air and Malibu to Ventura and the San Fernando Valley -- have shut down FOX's 'Last Man on Earth' in Chatsworth, Bravo's "Flipping Out" in Encino and Amazon's "Goliath" in Griffith Park ... just to name a few.

Several commercials and marketing campaigns have also been affected -- from a Chevy commercial set to shoot in the Angeles National Forest to photo shoots for Subaru and luxury retailer Lord & Taylor.

The halt comes on the heels of "S.W.A.T." and "Westworld" shutting down.

Sources at Film L.A. tell us none of the sets have been damaged and production halt is out of precaution. It's unclear when filming resumes because it'll depend on the fire's intensity, containment and aftermath. This, of course, pales in comparison to homes lost and hundreds of thousands forced to evacuate.

Lindsay Lohan Coming Back to America? Maybe for Tunes, Flicks ... & Fans

EXCLUSIVE

Talk about a sight for sore eyes ... it's Lindsay Lohan back in the U.S. of A!

We ran into LiLo leaving an Xmas party Wednesday night in NYC, and asked if she'd ever move back to the States after a LONG hiatus overseas ... where she's been for a while now. She's currently living in Dubai. 

Lindsay says she'd consider coming home -- but not for the reason you'd expect.  

Judging by the people on the street, coming back might be a good move ... because clearly her fans still love her.

Reese Witherspoon Sued Over 'Gone Girl'

12/6/2017 4:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Reese Witherspoon got a lot of accolades for producing "Gone Girl," and now she's got a lawsuit.

Leslie Weller claims she wrote a screenplay called "Out of the Blue" back in 2005. She sent a copy to a script consultant and claims that set the wheels in motion for someone to jack her work. She says the book "Gone Girl" which came out in 2012 is a rip off of her screenplay.

Weller claims a bunch of similarities ... they both focus on a married couple's relationship where the husband and wife are slowly drifting apart. They both contain a key twist where the wife is not the nice, normal, and somewhat naive housewife and is in fact a psychopath who sets up her husband.

Weller goes on ... both her screenplay and the novel are structured in the same way -- first, everyone sympathizes with the wife, and then you start to despise the husband, but things turn and by the end, you despise them both.

And she says both her work and "Gone Girl" feature a scene with a hammer that leads you to believe the husband might hurt the wife. 

Weller is also suing the book's author, Gillian Flynn, along with the movie's director, David Fincher. She says the movie lifts from the book, which lifts from her screenplay.
