They went to a bowling alley after and stayed til 4 AM. We're told they rented out the entire joint.
Holding hands and going bowling. Ah to be back in high school.

I TOUCHED IT
3/12/2014 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Unlike the rest of the universe, Joan Rivers isn't all that curious about seeing how big Johnny Carson's penis really is in that sex tape -- because she says ... she's already seen it up close and personal.
Joan -- who guest hosted on Carson's "Tonight Show" for years -- said she and Carson had a "one night bounce" back in the day ... and he was hung like a horse.
Still, Joan says she REALLY wants to see the sex tape for another reason -- check the clip.
I Got QB Advice from Joe Montana
... Don't Lift Weights!
3/12/2014 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Alec Baldwin can fire the hell out of a football ... and there's a good reason why -- he once got QB advice from Joe Montana.
Baldwin was hangin' out in NYC today when someone broke out a football -- and Alec proved he's got a cannon for a right arm.
The footage is pretty impressive -- Alec hits his receiver in stride, runs a play-action pass with a moving car ... and then dishes out QB advice to one of the guys on the street.
But the most interesting part ... Alec tells a story about when he met Joe Montana and the 49ers legend explained that he never lifted weights during his playing days because he didn't want the muscles to screw with his throwing motion.
At one point Alec says, "I don't think he would bulls**t me."
Check out the clip -- you might learn something.
Umbrella Wielding Man vs. Taser
3/11/2014 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A random guy wielding a giant deck umbrella ... in a standoff with 2 Santa Monica police officers ... armed with tasers -- who do you think comes out on top?
Yeah ... tasers are pretty much undefeated.
It appears the cops tried to talk it out with him, but when he kept swinging the umbrella like a weapon ... the taser came out and dude went down like a sack of wet cement.
Police say the man had just been kicked out of Starbucks for annoying customers -- and when they arrived he was making suicidal threats.
Our newsroom's divided -- did the cops use excessive force ... or merely take him down safely?
So, we gotta ask ...
In Case She Doesn't Take Me Back
3/11/2014 6:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke is either sending mixed messages to estranged wife Paula Patton or he's thrown in the towel on the marriage, because he was out clubbing late Monday night.
Robin was at DBA in Hollywood ... a Hollywood cabaret dance club and interactive gallery space -- don't ask, because we don't get it either. He was celebrating his 37th birthday party with Leonardo DiCaprio.
Thicke left alone, at around 1 AM, accompanied by a driver and bodyguard.
Now here's the thing ... The club is known for its waitresses who walk around showing about as much boob as is legally allowed.
Dave Chappelle, NBA star Glen Davis, and Lil Twist were also there.
Here's who wasn't there -- Paula Patton. It's interesting. Over the weekend, Robin was on stage dedicating love songs to her.
We're told Paula's been keeping tabs on her hubby. Who knows ... maybe it's just how they roll.

Need for a Mechanic
3/7/2014 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Talk about worst timing ever -- Aaron Paul's badass vintage ride OVERHEATED Thursday night outside the Hollywood premiere for "Need for Speed" ... a movie that's supposed to be about gearhead street racers ... you know, car experts.
The video is pretty fantastic -- Aaron handles the whole situation like a boss, laughing his ass off as steam billows out of his engine just feet away from the red carpet. His wife on the other hand ... she doesn't take it so well.
FYI, the car is a 1969 Ford Torino GT. Jesse Pinkman would approve.

Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne spiced things up last night ... making a hot man sandwich by twerking and grinding all over a dude in London.
M-Rod and Cara hit up Chinawhite nightclub after Beyonce's concert, and took over the dance floor with two of Bey's male dancers -- but the highlight was a menage a trois.
Because sometimes life is awesome ... the ladies ended up straddling one of the guys, and let's just say ... his legs are now very familiar with their crotches.
Stop reading. Start watching.
Nearly Hits Paris Pedestrians
We Gonna Run This Town ... Over
3/3/2014 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Rihanna was in a real hurry to dinner Friday night in Paris -- not only did she get a police escort to the restaurant ... her car nearly ran over a crowd of pedestrians in the process.
You can see it all in the video -- Rihanna's police escort breezes through a crosswalk ... and several pedestrians try to cross the street behind it ... but Rihanna's car cuts them off. It's a really close call.
Thankfully, Rihanna made it to dinner in one piece. (FYI, the restaurant's called Farnesina.)
Now shut up and drive.
I'm a Bona Fide Rock Chick Now
Performs in Vegas (Sort of)
3/3/2014 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One thing is undeniable ... Audrina Patridge is pretty ... out of tune when it comes to singing -- but that didn't stop her from rocking a legendary stage in Las Vegas this weekend.
The former "Hills" star went to Rock n' Roll Fantasy Camp at the House of Blues in Vegas and got to perform an original song with actual rockstar, Lita Ford.
It's unclear how many days Audrina spent at the camp -- but she obviously spent more time on her rocker chick moves (decent) than anything else.
Hey, at least she's living her dreams. Off key, but still ...
For the record, AP ... here's how it's done. Classic Lita.

'12 Years a Slave' Star
I Used to Pray For Lighter Skin
3/1/2014 7:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"12 Years a Slave" star Lupita Nyong'o says she repeatedly prayed to God asking for lighter skin during her adolescence ... because she thought having dark black skin was a curse.
Nyong'o was honored with an award on Thursday at a luncheon for Essence ... and said she was teased growing up for her "night-shaded skin" ... so she prayed God would change it.
Lupita says she was so ashamed she couldn't even look at herself in the mirror ... adding, "Every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I had been the day before."
The actress says supermodel Alek Wek -- one of the first dark skinned supermodels -- helped boost her confidence ... because people like Oprah praised her as a beautiful woman.
Nyong'o says she ultimately learned that beauty comes in all shades ... and hopes to be an inspiration to other young girls with similar concerns.

Gushes On Stage ...
I'm Lost Without Paula
2/28/2014 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke got back to performing tonight and wasted no time using the stage to beg for Paula Patton's mercy ... opening up to the crowd about the break-up and dedicating a song to her.
Thicke wore his wedding ring through the show in Fairfax, VA and told the crowd -- "For y'all that don't know me and my wife separated, but I'm trying to get my girl back. She's a good woman."
He also told fans he'd written the song "Lost Without U" for Paula ... before launching into the hit -- which we gotta say is kinda the perfect song for a guy trying to get back on a chick's good side.
Then again, Paula's heard this tune a hundred times.
