Ex-49er Ray McDonald

Out of Work & Under Investigation ...

No Problem

12/19/2014 3:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

If Ray McDonald is pissed off about getting cut from the San Francisco 49ers -- he did a bang up job of hiding it outside his attorney's office.

The defensive lineman let out a massive yawn as he strolled to his car after meeting his lawyer in San Jose Friday -- 2 days after he was named a suspect in an alleged rape investigation ... and subsequently 86'd by the Niners.

Ray's pretty chill -- especially for a guy facing his second criminal investigation in 6 months, and suddenly out of work.

Watch ... Ray's got a friend with him who says new information will be "coming out soon." Unclear if he's talking about Ray's future in the NFL ... or the alleged rape case.

Seth Rogen

Got Nothin' to Say

About My Ill-Fated Flick

12/18/2014 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


A stoic Seth Rogen arrived in L.A. Wednesday night ... and however he feels about Sony pulling the plug on his movie ... he's keeping it to himself.

Seth was impassive as photogs peppered him with questions. He didn't respond to a question about Rob Lowe's tweet Wednesday, suggesting he and Seth were comrades in arms over their distaste for Sony's decision.

As Rogen and his pooch made their way to the awaiting limo, a guy who looks like security was by his side.

As for Lowe, he went to Craig's in West Hollywood last night ... a sure fire way for any celeb to get on camera. But for some reason he's more into tweeting than talking.

'The Voice' Winner Craig Wayne Boyd

Snubs Fans Hard

12/18/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Craig Wayne Boyd
may have just won "The Voice," but he wouldn't even be a finalist in "The Brain," because he almost immediately disrespected the fans who will determine his long-term success. 

Boyd was leaving an NYC office Building Wednesday ... when he squeezed in an autograph and a mid-stride selfie, and then blazed past the other fans.

The little people know the game, and warned the singer he's starting off on the wrong foot.

"The Voice" is a really good show. Now name one of the past winners.

Matthew Bellamy

'Happy' About Kate Hudson Break-Up

... And Not Afraid to Say It

12/16/2014 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


"Happy" is not a word you'd expect to hear from Matt Bellamy when asked about his split from Kate Hudson, but he did ... and it comes off like a dig at his ex.

Hudson and Bellamy called off their engagement last week after dating for four years. They have a three-year-old son together. 

And when paps at LAX asked the Muse rocker about the break-up, he used an obscure Australian phrase which loosely translates to ... happy as a pig in s**t.

Matt could've said nothing, or something nice about Kate -- instead, he chose "happy." Aggressive?

Taylor Swift

Full Fan Girl

at Justin Timberlake Show

12/15/2014 7:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


It's unclear how Taylor Swift has time to learn the lyrics to EVERY song -- in addition to her own -- but she does ... and she unleashed her super fan lip-sync skills on Justin Timberlake this weekend.

Swift hit up JT's show in Brooklyn Sunday night to cap off her birthday weekend. T-Swizzle went into flailing arm mode, and not only sung along, but acted out every song too. 

It's great stuff ... unless you're the person sitting behind Taylor.

Derek Hough

Not Saying I'm NOT

Dating Kate Hudson

12/12/2014 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Derek Hough
 isn't ready to admit he's banging Kate Hudson -- but he's definitely not denying it either.

The "Dancing with The Stars" pro was in Boca Raton Thursday -- at a Tony Robbins seminar of all things -- when a photog popped the question about rumors he and newly single Kate are hooking up ... and his response is a little weird.

Hough and Huds were reportedly making out at an L.A. hot spot last Friday night -- he left out the front door, and she was spotted sneaking out the back -- sans engagement ring.

So, Derek ... if you're NOT with her ... why not just say so? Just sayin'.

TN Congressman

GAFFE OF THE YEAR

Sexual Assault Begins at Home

12/12/2014 6:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Prepare to apply palm to forehead. 

Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen made one of the all-time blunders yesterday when asked about a sexual assault case involving a Tennessee Titans football player. 

The 65-year-old politician explained that he's not really a big football guy ... but keeps up with Peyton and Eli Manning ... and knows the following thing to be 100% true: 

"Eli and Peyton DON'T DO sexual assault against people ... other than their wives."

(apply palm to forehead now)

Even more shocking, the congressman didn't seem to realize his gaffe ... and moved on to the next topic without correcting himself.

120914_max_george_launch_v3This is gonna hurt a little for The Wanted and their fans -- visual proof the lads are definitely not living it up ... 2012 style anymore.

First up, Max George ... who left LAX Monday with his smoking hot GF Carrie Baker -- an Oklahoma beauty queen. Max gave us his take on life in OK ... and then took off in a very, um ... low profile vehicle. You gotta see it. 

As for the rest of the group -- we got Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness too at LAX ... as they lined up to grab a yellow cab. No limo. Not even an Uber.

The times ... they have changed.

120914_the_wanted_girls_launch_v4On a positive note: Max's chick is really hot. So ... he's still got that going for him.

12/9/2014 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


THIS is a sight to behold ... in the middle of the Cavaliers/Nets game Monday night ... British security swarmed the hardwood as Prince William and Kate Middleton held court ... for Beyonce and Jay Z.

You gotta watch the video ... at the end of the 3rd quarter at  Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the crowd roars as Jay and Bey saunter across the court to waiting royalty. 

The 2 girls yak it up as the guys chitchat ... and it's all captured on the Jumbotron.

And the piece de resistance ... Jay's BB move as he crosses back.

Angelina Jolie

Rescues Fan from Crowd

Then Snaps Selfies!

12/5/2014 7:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Angelina Jolie
came to the aid of a fan who was being crushed by a mob hounding Angie for autographs ... then made the woman's day by snapping the coolest selfie ever.

Angie was leaving "The Daily Show" Thursday night when a fan got overwhelmed in the crowd and started screaming she was having a panic attack. 

Jolie immediately singled out the woman, and had security pull her out. That's when AJ really turned on the charm ... wiping away the woman's tears, and moving in for the selfie. 
 
Saint Angie's generosity was only upstaged by that awesome wolf hat.

Tracy Morgan

Walking, Talking, And ...

'Fighting Everyday'

12/4/2014 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Video of Tracy Morgan walking around -- 6 months after the accident that nearly killed him -- is pretty damn inspiring ... considering what the comedian's gone through. 

Tracy made a rare public appearance outside a NJ post office on Wednesday ... moving slowly and gingerly with the help of a walker. His fiancée, Megan Wollover was nearby for support.

As for how his recovery is going ... a determined Tracy told the camera guy, "I'm fighting everyday."

Great to see Tracy on the mend.

Angelina Jolie

SUV Skids, Hits Median, Tires Blow

12/1/2014 6:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1201-swipe-angelina-jolie-x17-accident
Angelina Jolie had a big scare Sunday when her SUV skidded on an oily L.A. road, hitting a median and blowing 2 tires.

Jolie was on the way home from a screening of her new film, "Unbroken." The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept tells TMZ ... the driver was on Santa Monica Blvd when he lost control. The impact was significant when the SUV hit the median and according to one report at least one tire exploded after slamming into the curb. 



Someone in Jolie's camp called the cops because they felt she was being harassed by paparazzi. By the time deputies arrived, Jolie had left in another vehicle.

It appears she's okay.
