Michelle Rodriguez Lighten Up, People ... I'm Bisexual, Never Transphobic!!

9/16/2016 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle Rodriguez doesn't think anyone will be offended by her new movie ... because her own sexuality proves she'd never hurt transgender people or anyone in the LGBT community.

We got the "Fast & Furious" star at LAX talking about her role in the action film "(Re) Assignment" -- in which she plays a male assassin who undergoes a sex change against his will by a deranged surgeon.

It's clear she's peeved about the controversy ... and has some simple advice for any haters.

Take a look at what Michelle had to go through to play the role of Tomboy.

Heheheh at TIFF promoting 'TomBoy A Revengers Tale' producers are convinced the new movie title should be re-assignment but I'll stick to the title I signed on to shoot... 'Tomboy'. It's in the B Movie genre, a culture shock pic, shot like a 'film Noir' graphic novel. I played a male assassin for four days in the movie, boy was that beard itchy. Then out revenge, a twisted Doctor played by Sigourney Weaver decides to take my character's manhood away with a sex change to teach him a lesson. I never felt more like a woman than when I played a man. For the rest of the film I was a man stuck in a newly operated sex changed body. I had fake boob covers to look like man implants & I wore a fake hairy 'mangina' which you can't really see cause they made it so hairy. In retrospect I'm I glad took the plunge, the industry seems to be running low on edgy creativity & 'real take a chance' controversy, sometimes it makes me want to scream, instead I did what I always do when I'm bored with the 'status quo', I shot crazy b movie Indy to express my frustration. I wish I had more than a few weeks to prepare for this flic, I would have gained a lot more weight, & we would have made some hairy arms to match my Mediterranean look. I feel that my skinny build sometimes comes off hermaphoditic in the film, especially when you add the crazy male chest for the nude sequences. Lol hope y'all will enjoy the flic sometime, when we sell it of course... It's interesting to say the least.

Ryan Lochte Protesters We Did It For America ... But 'DWTS' Guards Did Some Damage

9/13/2016 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The protesters who rushed Ryan Lochte on "Dancing with the Stars" wanted to get revenge for the swimmer embarrassing Americans at the Olympics ... and they say they'd do it again.

59-year-old Sam Sotoodeh and 25-year-old Barzeen Soroudi -- who are related -- explained their antics when they got out of jail Tuesday ... still sporting their "No Lochte" shirts. Barzeen says he was in Rio for the games, and Lochtegate made him a target while he was down there. 

Even though he put himself in the line of fire with the protest ... Sotoodeh has a major issue with the way security guards took him down on the dance floor. Watch, everything about his reaction reeks of lawsuit.

Ryan Lochte I Won't Go to Brazil to Face Charges ... Not Happening

Breaking News

Ryan Lochte says he'd love to go back to Rio one day ... but it sure as hell won't be to face charges in the whole gas station incident ... so says Lochte himself. 

Lochte was charged with filing a false police report in Rio and officials have summoned the swimmer to Brazil for a hearing ... but Monday morning at LAX, Lochte said prosecutors shouldn't hold their breath. 

There's more ... Lochte says he's heard rumblings that the U.S. Olympic Committee will either ban him from swimming or strip him of his '16 Olympic medals over the incident ... but says, "I don't think it's gonna happen."

As for Jimmy Fallon spoofing him at the VMAs Sunday night, Lochte says he didn't see it -- but ain't mad either ... insisting he thinks the mockery is actually funny.

Shemar Moore My Message Wasn't for Gibson ... But Other 'Criminal' Star a Possibility

8/17/2016 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Most people thought Shemar Moore's cryptic words on karma were all about his ex co-star -- and nemesis -- Thomas Gibson, but Shemar's hinting it WAS aimed at a different "Criminal Minds" actor. 

Shemar was out in L.A. when a photog asked if he was reacting to Thomas getting fired from "Criminal Minds" ... since they famously had beef on set. Check out the clip ... Shemar says people got it twisted -- denying he was throwing shade at Gibson.

The other prime suspect is Keith Tisdell -- a former friend and co-star who was recently convicted for stealing $60k from Shemar's charity. He definitely did NOT deny it was Tisdell.

As for his current feelings about Gibson? Shemar was polite, for sure, but still seems kinda icy.

Karma, bro.

6/27/2016 5:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Calvin Harris is in the market for something new -- a door on his luxury SUV, after nearly destroying his ride ... all in front of cameras.

Calvin was leaving his Bev Hills gym on Monday when he started backing up his Range Rover, but had no clue his back door was still open. Check out the video ... this is gonna hurt, especially for Calvin. 

Apparently, he went off on the bank of photogs who were waiting for him, saying they're the reason he jacked up his Range -- but later apologized for the tantrum.

Let's face it, Calvin can afford the repair. Or even a new vehicle altogether.
