What isn't Gilbert Grape eating? Leonardo DiCaprio hit the beach last week with his 21-year-old supermodel girlfriend looking rounder than usual ... but the fact is, Leo's so rich and awesome, it doesn't matter.
Days before dancing like a weirdo at Coachella, Leo and his GF Toni Garrn vacationed in Bora Bora. While Toni removed her top and unleashed her boobs, Leo removed his top and unleashed his as well.
And no one cared ... because he's Leonardo DiCaprio.
Seriously, though. We're big fans.
I 'Was Robbed' Comment Was Not a Diss to Paul Walker
4/14/2014 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ice Cube is setting the record straight ... saying he was not taking a huge shot at Paul Walker when he griped about losing to him at the MTV Movie Awards -- and claims his words were misinterpreted.
Cube raised eyebrows when, according to USA Today, he said ... "We was robbed" in the Best Onscreen Duo category. He and Kevin Hart's "Ride Along" lost to Paul Walker and Vin Diesel's "Fast & Furious 6."
He added, "We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy."
Sounds like Cube was getting some heat ... because he's now saying, "I wasn't really mad we didn't win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker."
Ice Cube also tweeted, "Ice Cube is not a sore loser. I was born losing. This winning s*** is what I gotta get use to."
Sources close to the actor/rapper tell us he had a joking tone during the USA Today interview ... and was just busting on award shows since he doesn't take them seriously.
We feel you on that, Cube.

About Inbred Hillbillies
4/14/2014 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Leo DiCaprio thinks the guys claiming his company defamed them by calling them "inbreds" in the movie "Out of the Furnace" may not be inbreds ... but they're stupid for suing.
DiCaprio's production company just asked a judge to toss the lawsuit filed by 17 members of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation -- a tribe in the Ramapo Mountains of New Jersey.
The tribe's beef -- the villain of the movie, Harlan DeGroat, played by Woody Harrelson, shares the last name of some of them and they believe they're the target of the flick's disparaging references.
Aside from the "inbred" comment, the real-life DeGroat says it's defamatory to make them look like murderous, drug-addicted scofflaws.
DiCaprio's company claims the law -- specifically the First Amendment -- allows them to portray criminal gangs in movies.
Here's the best part ... Leo's company points out there's a rich history of movies depicting various groups -- "The Godfather" portrayed Italian gangs, "The Departed" showed Irish gangs, and, our favorite, "Once Upon a Time In America" features a Jewish Gang ... who knew?

Liam Neeson's new special skill is being pampered ... as he was tended to Wednesday on the set of "Taken 3" in Los Angeles.
During breaks in filming, Neeson chatted with his stunt double, got sprayed with clean water, and had his make-up done while under the shade of the umbrella.
Just kidding, Liam. Please don't hurt us.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been thrown into the middle of a nasty lawsuit over who was responsible for paying their "Twilight" bonuses. The suit is boring, but what they scored is interesting.
According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Robert was given a $300,000 bonus for the first "Twilight." The sum was supposedly based on box office receipts, which totaled $351 MILLION worldwide.
Now here's the plot twist ... When Robert and Kristen went to the bargaining table for "New Moon" -- aka Twilight 2 -- they either drove a hard bargain or realized they had gotten screwed the first time around. According to the lawsuit, producers agreed to pay each of them $2.5 million for the first "Twilight."
The sequels certainly turned into a cash register for both stars. Pattinson reportedly got $25 million for the 2 installments of "Breaking Dawn" -- plus back-end.
Hate your life yet.
I'm Ready To Sing in the Sequel!
4/8/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Goonies is now a go, and one original cast member has figured out a way to secure his role in the sequel -- he's already written his part of the script!
Robert Davi -- who played opera-singing villain Jake Fratelli -- is thrilled that Richard Donner told TMZ over the weekend he's going to shoot "Goonies II."
Davi tells us he'd love to help Donner with the script, and just so happens to have mapped out the role of his character. It goes something like this.
Jake's love of opera has morphed into a career performing the Great American Songbook, with his brother Francis as his crooked manager. One Eyed Willie's ship has been tracked down using sonar technology. The treasure trove is not on the ship anymore, but Jake and Francis have a key piece of the evidence they've held on to for 30 years ... evidence that will lead them to the treasure.
BTW Robert Davi became an accomplished singer in real life -- he's about to drop a new album in Australia.

I'll Do the Next 'Star Wars'
... If They Ask
4/8/2014 3:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lando Calrissian hasn't gotten the call yet from Luke, Han or Leia to be in the next "Star Wars" film, but Billy Dee Williams says he'll be there ... if they want him.
TMZ spotted Cloud City's finest citizen after doing a little food shopping. Williams -- who looks AMAZING for 77 -- hadn't heard the new "Star Wars" film had already begun shooting because so far ... no one has asked him to be in it.
With Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew all expected to reprise their roles, Williams says he'd be more than happy to join the fun if he got the call.
We're not saying "Star Wars: Episode VII" would suck without Billy Dee ... but why take chances?

No 'Goonies' Sequel For Me, Unless ...
4/7/2014 9:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Corey Feldman is clearly in demand -- in his own mind -- because he's not jumping to sign on for a "Goonies" sequel unless producers meet his demands.
TMZ broke the story ... "Goonies" director Richard Donner says he's making a sequel to the movie 28 years later and wants the entire cast to return -- but Feldman's not down just yet.
Feldman unloaded online saying Donner tried selling him a similar story a few months ago -- Corey claims Donner promised Spielberg was involved as well -- but he's skeptical.
Corey adds, "It can't be done without a perfect script! We all must be certain that it doesn't miss the magic of the original."
