George Clooney Limping, But Walking Unaided Days After Scooter Crash

7/15/2018 3:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

George Clooney's one tough SOB -- he's continuing to walk on his own just days after being released from the hospital due to a nasty crash ... although he's clearly hurting.

GC slowly made his way off his private jet Sunday after it touched down in Rome, where he's reportedly set to resume filming for his new Hulu series "Catch-22." He's got a hell of a limp going, but the actor's fighting through the pain to get to where he's gotta be.

We broke the story ... George was doing 60 mph at the moment of impact last week, when his scooter struck a sedan in Sardinia. He was thrown 20 feet into the air, but was back on his feet just a couple days later. 

Surveillance footage of the accident shows that the wreck was as bad as it sounds, leaving the actor writhing on the ground in the middle of traffic.

Here's to a speedy recovery, Georgie boy. Get well soon.

EXCLUSIVE

Liam Hemsworth's got moves -- choreographed moves -- as do a few of his costars in their upcoming romantic comedy.

Liam was spotted dancing in front of a building with Rebel Wilson and other "Isn't It Romantic" cast members in NYC Saturday morning. It's hard to tell for sure, but it looks like Adam DeVine is one of them ... to the right in the vid.

This isn't the first time we've seen Liam and Rebel together for this film either -- although last time ... it was for a moist makeout session.

"Isn't It Romantic" also stars Betty Gilpin and Priyanka Chopra, and is set to come out on Valentine's Day.

7/14/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Ludacris had run out of places to lay his head inside his Bahamas vacation house, he had no need to worry, because there was a 400-square-foot elevated daybed outside waiting for him by the pool.

Luda just crashed at the Ananda Estate on the island of Eleuthera. Sources tell us he was there for at least a couple of nights.

The sprawling, 4-bedroom beachfront home is currently on sale for $10 million and rents for $3,600/night.

It comes with an SUV, an ATV, 2 jet skis and a personal chef. There are also two chill spots next to the pool ... one with that huge daybed, and another with a sunken kitchen near a giant Buddha fountain.

As for that 50 ft. infinity pool, seems like it'd be really hard to get out of ... and Ludacris looks like he agrees.

Harvey Weinstein Denies Saying He Traded Acting Gigs For Sex

7/13/2018 11:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein says an article in "The Spectator" which just came out -- purportedly quoting him as saying he traded acting roles for sex -- is bogus, and the reporter who wrote the story seems to admit it.

The article says Weinstein told the reporter, "I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere ... no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood. Yes I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone. But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman."

The article says Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, was present during the interview.

Brafman says he was present, but that's not what his client said. Brafman says, "Harvey and Taki [the reporter] did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to. They talked about old Hollywood and the contrast to European culture and I think Taki sees Harvey in that older light. Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favors."

Weinstein's people also reached out to Taki, who they say copped to lies in the story. Taki's statement is a retraction, saying, "I believe that I may have misrepresented Harvey Weinstein's conversation with me. It was my mistake."

Scarlett Johansson Withdraws from Trans Movie Amid Backlash

7/13/2018 11:57 AM PDT

Scarlett Johansson has decided to back out of the film "Rub and Tug" after receiving some serious criticism for taking the role of the lead character ... who is a transgender person.

Johansson tells "Out" magazine ... "In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project."

She adds ... “Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive."

Scarlett admits she would have loved to play the role of Dante, but understands why people were upset by her being cast and feel he should be played by a transgender person.

This is a pretty big reversal from when the controversy first broke a couple of weeks ago, and her rep suggested it was unfair to blast Johansson for taking the role when other actors -- like Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto and Felicity Huffman -- had played trans characters ... to critical acclaim.

"Rub and Tug" is the story of Dante "Tex" Gill, who was born a woman but identified as a man and ran a prostitution ring out of his massage parlor in the '70s and '80s. It's unclear at this time how production will be affected by Johansson's exit.

Selena Gomez Back To Work ... With Rumored BF in Tow

7/13/2018 10:11 AM PDT

Selena Gomez is keeping herself busy -- on the heels of her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's engagement announcement -- by throwing herself back into acting, and she's not doing it alone.

Gomez was seen Thursday on the set of the zombie-com "The Dead Don't Die." The film stars Bill Murray and Chloe Sevigny and is shooting in Fleischmanns, New York, almost 3 hours north of the Big Apple in the Catskill Mountains.

Also spotted on set was Gomez's rumored new boyfriend, Caleb Stevens. Stevens is the younger brother -- he's reportedly only 18 -- of one of Gomez's close friends.

There have been conflicting reports as to whether or not the two are an actual couple ... but, while on set, Caleb made a run for Cheetos and an iced coffee -- so if he's not a love interest -- he's at least scored a sick summer job as her assistant.

As for the big elephant in the room, Selena's still hasn't said anything about her ex's engagement.

EXCLUSIVE

What did the 5 fingers say to David Arquette's face? SLAPPITY SLAP SLAP!!!

The 46-year-old movie star took several open-hand slaps to the face on the red carpet at the 350 Days premiere in Hollywood on Thursday ... when he was ambushed by pro wrestler RJ City

The two -- who happen to be facing off at a wrestling match on July 15 -- started jawing at each other on the red carpet ... but things turned physical and RJ let them hands fly! 

The "fight" was quickly broken up and City was escorted off the carpet. 

Afterward, Arquette told us he's been training his ass off to demolish City on Sunday -- even traveling to Tijuana, Mexico to train with luchadores. 

Until then ... ice up! 

Kendrick Lamar & SZA 'Black Panther' Lawsuit Over Song is Ridiculous

7/13/2018 8:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kendrick Lamar and SZA were monumentally huge artists and that's what propelled the soundtrack for "Black Panther" ... not a 19-second clip an artist claims was a rip-off of her artwork.

Kendrick and SZA just filed legal docs asking a judge to give Lena Iris Viktor the boot in her lawsuit which claims Kendrick and Co. ripped off her artwork in the music video for "All the Stars."

Kendrick and SZA claim in the new docs ... even if the artwork in the video was a rip-off, she's not entitled to the profits they made from the song because "common sense and logic dictate that the alleged 19 second use of the artwork in the video" is not what generated the success of the song.

The duo goes on to say the success of the album is the result of his "worldwide popularity as well as numerous accolades, including a Pulitzer Prize and dozens of Grammys."

Kendrick and SZA also give credit for the album's success to the incredible cultural impact of the "Black Panther" flick.

EXCLUSIVE

If LeBron James is looking to cast people in his upcoming movie ... look no further than Karl-Anthony Towns!!

We got the Minnesota Timberwolves superstar out in Hollywood with his smokin' hot girlfriend, Kawahine Andrade ... wearing the exact same designer hoodie Bron rocked Wednesday night

FYI, the hoodie is made by a company called Rhude -- which sells the sweatshirts for around $500! 

So, with their fashion sense lining up, we asked KAT if he wants some on-camera work with LeBron's production company. 

"Tell him to call me," Towns said ... "We can make it happen!"

He's not the only star hoping to team up with James -- Common says he'd love to hook up with LeBron for a project. 

Ditto for LaVar Ball ... and several sources around Hollywood tell TMZ Sports that King James is already becoming one of the most powerful guys in town. 

LaVar Ball Me and LeBron Could Take Over Hollywood Together

7/13/2018 5:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

How's this for a collaboration ... LaVar Ball and LeBron James on a big Hollywood project together? 

LaVar tells TMZ Sports ... don't rule it out. 

The Big Baller was at his JBA league event in Ontario, CA where we asked if LaVar had plans to get in on all of the Hollywood power meetings LeBron has been taking in Los Angeles. 

Lonzo's dad told us a meeting with Bron ain't a priority ... right now ... but he's excited about the possibility of teaming up with King James down the line.

"In Hollywood, anything's possible," LaVar says ... "We hook up together maybe become something more powerful. But it's all good!"

We also asked LaVar about Lonzo's health surrounding his knee injury -- and he assured us, "Lonzo's getting better and better."

"If he needs surgery, he'll get it ... if he don't, he won't. But they're gonna fix it. He'll be fine."

LeBron James hasn't been in L.A. two weeks and the stars are already falling out of the sky to work with him -- this time it's Common, who tells TMZ Sports he's ITCHING to do movie biz with the King.

James has been doing work in Hollywood already -- he and his business partner, Maverick Carter, just sold a new movie to Paramount Players and took a power dinner meeting with Leo DiCaprio and Al Pacino.

We got Common at LAX and asked if he's drooling to be a part of LeBron's Hollywood kingdom, and he said he'd love to run some lines with James ... again.

"LeBron is one of my favorite athletes, I actually just did a movie called 'Smallfoot.' We both did this animated film together."

The flick he's referencing is about a yeti who's convinced humans exist -- and includes voiceover work from stars like Channing Tatum, ZendayaJames Corden, and Danny DeVito

"Of course I'll work with LeBron and Maverick! They're incredible, they do good stuff."

Who's gonna say NO to this guy?
