Vanilla Ice The White Zone Is NOT for ... Chatting About Sandler

12/1/2015 9:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Vanilla Ice's admiration for Adam Sandler runs deep ... so deep it might have cost his driver a ticket.

We talked to Ice about his new role in the Sandler flick, "The Ridiculous 6" ... only problem is we got him at LAX, as he was getting into his chauffeur driven SUV.

If you've picked up anyone at the airport, you can guess what happened next -- parking enforcement showed up, of course!

Did they cut Ice and his driver a break? Check out the clip ... this one might be on us.

Leo DiCaprio NOT Raped By Bear ... FOX Confirms

breaking news

1201-leo-dicaprio-bear-rape-scene-not-in-movie-GETTY-TMZ-02Leonardo DiCaprio is NOT raped by a bear in a scene from his latest movie -- that's the bizarre statement FOX Studios just released. 

FOX felt compelled to shut down widespread Internet rumors about a controversial scene in "The Revenant" where Leo is attacked by a bear. For some reason (we haven't seen the movie) someone thought the bear raped the star ... twice.

A spokesperson for FOX told EW, "The bear in the film is a female who attacks [Leo] because she feels he might be threatening her cubs ... there is clearly no rape scene with a bear."

Case closed. No bear rape. It's still unclear why anyone saw the attack as sexual in its nature.

Yes, Leo wants an Oscar, but we're guessing he doesn't want it THAT badly. 

Cuba Gooding Jr. Show Me the Dance Moves!

11/30/2015 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cuba Gooding Jr. got his Rod Tidwell on in a crowded bar ... stealing the spotlight as he put on a dance clinic. 

Cuba hit up the very British pub Ye Olde King's Head in Santa Monica, and got loose to Kanye West's "Gold Digger." You gotta see him dance battle a chick -- who gives him a run for his money -- all while wearing his shades in the dark club. 

Yes, he was THAT guy.

Looks like a totally fun night though. Nobody puts Cuba Gooding Jr. in the corner! Nobody.

'Shallow Hal' Star Dies from Pneumonia

11/30/2015 9:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1127-joshua-shintani-getty-02Joshua Shintani -- best known from his cameo in "Shallow Hal" has died at the age of 32 ... TMZ has learned.

Joshua's mother says she took him to an emergency room early last week on Kauai, and doctors discovered he was battling an advanced case of pneumonia. Joshua died on Wednesday.

He had became a local legend in his native Hawaii after landing the memorable scene with Jack Black ... where Joshua strummed a ukulele and played, "Never Forget Where I'm From."

Peter Farrelly was on vacation in Hawaii when he discovered Joshua, a high school senior at the time, strumming his uke outside a public library. He signed him up for the movie on the spot. 

'Hal' was the only movie Joshua ever did. 

A rep for the Farrelly brothers tell us Joshua, "had a soul that glowed like a lighthouse.  We feel honored to have known him."

Michael B. Jordan Time for a Kobe Movie ... But I Can't Play Him

11/30/2015 7:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's curtains on his career ... but the timing couldn't be better for a Kobe Bryant MOVIE -- so says Michael B. Jordan.

The "Creed" star was on his way into the Lakers game Sunday night when he told us he was all about the idea ... but said when it comes to playing the title character, "I can't do it man."

So, who would be the ideal actor to play the role of the Black Mamba???

We asked Kobe last year ... and he actually picked an actor with some legit basketball experience -- if you count "Semi-Pro."

Disney & Marvel You Steal Elsa & Spider-Man ... We'll Sue for MILLIONS!

11/28/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-frozen-marvel-southamerica-01Mickey Mouse, Elsa and some superheroes are in a Venezuelan standoff (like a Mexican one, but further south) with a company accused of putting on a bootleg live Disney show.

Disney says it fired off a cease and desist letter last year to the producers of “Aventura Congeladas” (translation: “Frozen Adventure”) ... demanding they kill all marketing and promotion of the show because it jacked mouse house characters.   

The producers complied at first, but in a new lawsuit Disney says the show eventually started up again under a new name -- "Vacaciones de Aventuras" (translation: "Adventure Holidays") -- and added Marvel heroes like Spider-Man and Captain America.

Of course, Disney owns Marvel, so for them that's no bueno ... hence, the lawsuit. 

Check out a clip of the live production -- Iron Man, Thor, Princesses Elsa and Anna, Olaf and many more make cameos. Disney's lawsuit demands millions for use of its trademarks.

They won't dejalo ir! (That's "let it go" for the gringos.) 

'Real World' Star Death Threats From Obsessive Fan

11/27/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120_jamie_chung_TMZ'Hangover' actress and former 'Real World' cast member Jamie Chung got flooded with some seriously threatening emails -- and it got so bad, the LAPD had to track down the sender. 

According to law enforcement Chung received 100 harassing emails from two separate Gmail accounts ... all in just one week, back in August. They ranged from simply "annoying" to threats to kill her.

Cops believed both accounts were owned by the same person because the emails were identical. Using the email info, cops tracked the sender and obtained a search warrant.

We're told cops got in touch with the guy and determined he was too far away from Jamie to pose any real threat. The case was closed without any charges. 

Jennifer Lawrence & Emma Stone Don't Worry ... We'll Get Your Duck, Adele

11/24/2015 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124-adele-jennifer-lawrence-emma-splash-akmgsi-3The #1 album isn't the only thing Adele scored this week -- she got a free meal courtesy of her celebrity friends ... TMZ has learned. 

As we told you, Adele did dinner with Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone Monday night at Cosme NYC ... a Mexican restaurant in the Flat Iron District, and the big question's been -- "Who paid?"

Our sources tell us when the bill came ... Adele was told her money's no good here -- and Emma, J Law and a 4th non-famous diner split the tab.

As for what they ate -- we're told they went for duck carnitas, blue shrimp a la veracruzana, corn husk meringue, and beets with corn salsa and cheese. 

Fancy. And pricey ... the duck alone goes for $59!



Brad Pitt vs. Ryan Gosling Who'd You Rather?!

11/24/2015 8:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124_brad_pitt_ryan_gosling_rather_launchIt's a fight of the flawless!

Here's a shady looking 51-year-old Brad Pitt (left) flashing a smirk while posing for a photo with a stoic 35-year-old Ryan Gosling (right) at the NYC premiere of their movie "The Big Short."

Neither of 'em has come up short. Ever.

So, the question is ...

Chris Hemsworth ... or Tom Hanks from 'Cast Away'?

11/23/2015 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-chris-hemsworth-instagramAnswer: Hemsworth ... after he dropped major lbs for his starring role in Ron Howard's upcoming "In the Heart of the Sea."

Hemsworth plays a sailor stranded at sea in the Moby Dick-inspired flick, so he obviously got way into character. He posted the throwback pic from the set saying he wouldn't recommend the diet to anyone.

Hard to believe that's the same guy who plays Thor, but the good news is Chris is back to his standard beefy bod since filming. 


Gilbert Arenas' Dad My Son Is The Next LeBron ... Of The Movie Biz

11/23/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gilbert Arenas' father thinks his son can be every bit the star LeBron James is ... just not on the basketball court ... saying that Agent Zero might be following the King's lead as the next big thing in the movies.

We got Gilbert Sr. out attending a basketball game at Grant High (Jr.'s alma mater) when the subject turned to what Gil is gonna do now that it seems his basketball career is over for good.

It's an interesting question ... the younger Arenas made over $140 MILLION during his NBA career and is only 33 years old ... so it might be good to find another passion.

Check out the clip -- Gilbert Sr. says his boy has another passion and it's the same one he had ... the movies ... saying he totally sees Gilbert jumping into the movie game just like LeBron.

JLaw, Liam and Josh 'Hunger Games' Stars Collide with Adele

11/21/2015 7:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1121-jenner-josh-liam-splashThis is a fun game ... Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson eating dinner at the same restaurant as Adele. Who comes up to who?

Sadly we can't answer, but we do know they were all at the Waverly Inn Friday night in NYC.

JLaw was at Adele's concert at Radio City a few nights ago, so she's definitely a fan. But she may have played it cool. Adele's really humble so maybe she went to the Hunger table.

We give up.

Sylvester Stallone Look at My Gorgeous Girls But You Can Only Touch One ... Maybe

11/20/2015 12:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120-stallone-daughters-gettySylvester Stallone's rep as a Hollywood tough guy is coming in pretty handy right about now -- since his 3 attractive daughters are at that age when boys come sniffing around ... at their own risk.

Sly's "Creed" premiere Thursday night was a family affair ... with his wife Jennifer Flavin and their daughters all sharing the spotlight.

The only downside for Stallone is his stunning girls -- (left to right) Sistine,17, Sophia,19, and 13-year-old Scarlet -- were IN THE SPOTLIGHT. 


Little advice for Sly -- long overalls, bro. Lots of overalls and baggy sweaters. 

We got Jennifer, a former model, at LAX and she said one of their daughters is already following in mom's footsteps ...
