Leonardo 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.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.
Mickey 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.)
Answer: 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' 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.
