Arnold & Woody

'Twins' Reboot, Anyone?

8/25/2015 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Arnold Schwarzenegger ran into Woody Allen, and amazingly Woody survived -- since it was just at dinner ... but what an interesting dinner that would be.

The video's a little strange ... we got Arnold and his GF Heather Milligan walking into Madeo Monday night in West Hollywood, and literally 3 seconds later ... Woody and Soon-Yi cruised in behind them.

Woody might have been hitting up Arnold to step in for Bruce Willis ... who just backed out of an untitled movie that Woody's directing. Then again, it could be coincidence.

But we doubt it.

Columbus Short

update_graphic_red_bar

10:40 AM PST:  A rep for Columbus Short tells TMZ, "[Short's] arrest was NOT due to an outstanding warrant ... . It appears that this is a citizen's arrest as a result of an issue between Mr. Short and his bail bondsman."

update_grey_gray_bar

Columbus Short had a few party crashers during his album release celebration Tuesday night ... bounty hunters and sheriffs who were there to arrest him.  

Short was picked up in a club at Universal Studios CityWalk in Los Angeles ... just as he was about to do a soundcheck.

It seems Short was arrested because he failed to appear in one of his domestic violence cases and the judge issued a bench warrant.

In the video, Short is arguing with one of the bounty hunters ... saying they freaked him out and he was afraid for his life.

We're told the bounty hunters were there because they'll get a cut of his $500,000 bail. We're told the bounty hunters swooped in because they believed Short was about to flee the county.

Lil Eazy-E

Snoop Kept Son's Decision

... On the Low Low

8/16/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Eazy-E got in Snoop Dogg's grill about UCLA football ... days before Snoop's son Cordell Broadus bailed -- but he says the Doggfather kept the whole thing on the QT.

We broke the news about Cordell quitting Bruins football to Lil E and he was shocked and heartbroken. Shocked because he was just "talking mess" about the USC-UCLA rivalry to Snoop at the "Straight Outta Compton" premiere last week. 

He's hearbroken because he's a huge UCLA fan. Check out his reaction ... we suspect this is what Snoop looked like when Cordell told him he was done with football.

Dr. Dre’s Son

Straight Outta

The Casting Process

EXCLUSIVE

Dr. Dre's son, Curtis Young, ain't no thespian ... which is why he's cool getting passed over for his dad's part in "Straight Outta Compton." 

Our photog spotted Young at LA Live and he couldn't contain his excitement for his pop's biopic.

Seems like the guy Young was competing against was a lot better than O'Shea Jackson Jr.'s competition.  

Kanye West

TV Fashionista ....

He's No Calvin Klein

8/15/2015 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West is inspired but not innovative in the fashion department ... so says fashion guru Robert Verdi.

Verdi -- who's hosted "Fashion Police" and designed for stars like Hugh Jackman and Mariska Hargitay -- says Kanye thinks more highly of his fashion skills than other in the biz.

Here's the thing ... Kanye's used to criticism, and he usually comes out on top.

Kelly Rutherford

After Losing Kids

8/11/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Rutherford left the courthouse visibly upset after having her kids ripped from her arms in court. 

The "Gossip Girl" star was understandably distraught after the hearing, choking up as she tried to explain how she was feeling. Rutherford could only muster, "I have no words" ... before she broke down in tears. 

After the judge's ruling, Rutherford was forced to turn over her two kids, sending them back to Monaco.

The next court hearing is scheduled to take place September 3 in Monaco.

Jennifer Beals

What a Feeling

For a German Shepherd in a Hot Car

7/30/2015 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Flashdance" star Jennifer Beals is taking heat for leaving her German Shepherd in a hot car, and the excuse is puzzling.

Beals was in the Dunbar neighborhood of Vancouver Wednesday when she left her pooch in her SUV with the window open only a crack.

A guy happened to notice just as Beals was returning to her car, and he confronted her, saying it was dangerous to leave the dog in the car with the temp at 77 degrees.

Jennifer's response ... "In Dunbar, it's ok."  

The incident was reported to the SPCA and their Chief Prevention Officer's response was even more curious: "The sun shines in Dunbar just as much as it shines everywhere else."

Nipsey Hussle

Double Cupping

In Front of Cops

7/29/2015 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nipsey Hussle may have dodged a bullet Tuesday, because cops missed what could have been an obvious offense ... all contained in a double cup.

Hussle got into it with a paparazzo, and it got so heated police were called.  

As Hussle jawbones with cops, the telltale double cup sits right by his feet. It's possible it's not sizzurp, but not probable.

You may recall, Hussle was arrested last month for possession of codeine without a prescription.

Bullet dodged.

Jimmy Fallon

Sings Lead with U2 ...

Beat It Bono!

7/23/2015 8:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy Fallon jumped onstage with U2 -- injured finger and all -- and absolutely stole the show ... for at least one song of the Madison Square Garden gig. 

Fallon started out by busting on Bono, The Edge, and himself ... for their rash of injuries, saying ... ""I'm a big fan of Irish people who fall down and hurt themselves"

But when the band kicked into their hit, "Desire" -- Jimmy went into lead singer mode ... first sharing the mic, and then taking over and doing a spot-on Bono impression.

You gotta see his harmonica solo at the end. The finger's feeling better.  

Jimmie Walker

Cosby Was Always Banging Women

... Everyone Knows That!

7/22/2015 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sitcom legend Jimmie "JJ" Walker is shocked by the outrage over Bill Cosby ... because he thought it was common knowledge Cos was nailing women on the side. 

The ex "Good Times" star was out in L.A. when a photog asked about the Cosby scandal. Walker admits he was surprised to hear Cosby used Quaaludes and other drugs on women, but claims he witnessed Cosby hooking up all the time.  

Walker, who's worked with Cosby on a movie and on the comedy circuit ... said, "I actually thought everybody KNEW about all these women." 

As for Cosby bouncing back from the controversy -- Walker's got an opinion, and it ain't "Dyn-o-mite!"

French Montana

El Chapo Is My Hero

7/16/2015 8:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

French Montana is putting ruthless, murderous drug lord El Chapo up on a pedestal -- and the video of his shout-out to the notorious fugitive ... is ridiculous. 

French was out in Hollywood Wednesday night when a photog asked if El Chapo is still kingpin in the drug game. His bizarre answer included the word, "idol." 

Seems weird to show love to a guy responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.

Then again, French calls his crew and his record label, Coke Boys.

0630-caitlyn-jenner-splash-inf-02Caitlyn Jenner stepped out with new best friend Diane Sawyer Monday night in NYC, and she has the paparazzi eating out of the palm of her hand.

It's pretty incredible ... the flurry of questions Bruce Jenner faced over the last few years are all gone ... and now it's all glam and respect as the paps fought to get an over-the-shoulder shot.

Caitlyn and Diane did not know each other before their interview, but we're told they hit it off and created a warm friendship.
