Zac Effron was hiking with Anna Kendrick in Hawaii and showing off his buff body, which got us thinking -- how long can he possibly keep up that physique?

8 Years in the Making!
5/28/2015 8:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan has dodged the orange jumpsuit ... because a judge has signed off on her community service hours, and for the first time in nearly 8 years, she's off probation!
Lilo’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, did the honors in court Thursday, getting the word from Hizzoner that Lindsay's in the clear.
As we first reported, Lindsay did what we thought was impossible ... completing 125 hours of community service in what looked like a probationary marathon ... every day, 8 hours a day, for more than 2 weeks.
The stakes were high ... if Lindsay didn't get the job done, she was probably going to jail.
If you’re trying to do the math: Lohan’s probation stemmed from a 2012 reckless driving case where she lied to police, but she’s been on probation since her 2007 run-in with the law for drug possession and DUI that landed her in a Lynwood, Calif. jail for 84 minutes.
With these charges cleared, Lohan can go back to being famous for ... you know, acting.
Check out Holley on her way into court -- huge sigh of relief for Lindsay. And also for herself.
Are NOT GAY
5/28/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Bachelorette's big gay event -- the so-called "Brokeback Bachelor" moment where 2 of the guys fall in love with each other -- is missing something ... 2 gay guys.
TMZ has learned both guys -- Clint and JJ -- are both straight as arrows. Multiple sources tell us the 'Brokeback' promo ABC's been airing is just that ... a promo.
We're told Clint and JJ did have a bromance while trying to woo Kaitlyn Bristowe, but "nothing gay ever happened" ... not even in the shower ... as Clint mentions in the promo for next week's episode.
Our sources say both guys are in on the whole 'Brokeback' thing and "just think it's funny." They even gave producers soundbites to run with. Of course, they've also been getting a ton of attention on social media, and they love it. We're told they "think of funny things to write back to people on Twitter."
Case in point ... Clint's tweet comparing himself to Heath Ledger.
So, bottom line -- nothing gay to see here folks. Just a very effective ad.
Rick Ross to 50 Cent
It's Not My Fault ...
You're a Loser!
5/28/2015 9:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
As TMZ first reported, 50 sued Ross to cover his own ass in a lawsuit he's facing over a leaked sex tape ... claiming it is Ross' fault the video was posted in the first place ... so Ross should pay, not him.
But Ross -- through his lawyer, Xavier Donaldson -- says 50's only gunning for him in "another attempt to draw attention to his descending entertainment career and one of several desperate, last minute attempts he's made to avoid and deflect legal and financial responsibility for his own actions."
Donaldson says he's yet to be served with the suit, but plans to fight it aggressively.
Oh Yeah ...
Batman Is Definitely In It!
5/28/2015 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It wouldn't be a party if Batman wasn't invited, and now it's official ... the Caped Crusader is going to be in "Suicide Squad."
While the Batmobile had previously been spotted on set, Wednesday marked the first time Bruce Wayne's alter ego made an appearance.
Also on set -- the actual Margot Robbie. That's her in full Harley Quinn makeup riding shotgun.
2016 cannot come fast enough.
Sooo Dripping Wet
... Over Justin Bieber!!??
5/28/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Get Charlie Sheen a towel ... a BIG one ... or maybe just a life preserver -- 'cause the guy was absolutely drowning in his own sweat at 1:30 AM in Hollywood.
This video is insane, and literally soaking wet. We saw Charlie slipping out of Sycamore Studios early Thursday morning ... where a bunch of Justin Bieber fans also happened to be hanging out waiting for Justin to exit.
It's unclear what the hell Charlie was doing at the studio at that time -- we're pretty sure he's not recording an album ... but who knows with him.
Just watch ... screaming Bieber fans, a seriously drenched warlock ... oh, and a one-finger salute to Charlie's fave TMZer.
'19 Kids and Counting'
Pulled From Hulu
5/28/2015 6:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hulu has pulled the plug on "19 Kids and Counting."
The popular streaming site was bombarded with messages from users who wanted the show 86'd in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal.
Hulu responded quickly, saying, "The show page has already been removed, and is no longer hosted on Hulu."
This puts even more pressure on TLC to make a move. As we reported, we're told the network is leaning toward cancellation, but at this point, they may not have a choice. Advertisers are fleeing in droves.
The show was available as recently as Wednesday afternoon.
We reached out to Hulu for comment ... so far, no word back.
I Haven't Spoken to Kim Since
Mexican Wedding Disaster
5/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We got Kyle out in Bev Hills Wednesday, and she opened up and said she hasn't spoken with Kim since Kim's daughter tied the knot in Mexico over the weekend.
As we reported, Kim was off the rails, pissing off everyone and apparently under the influence of something. Kyle says everything's okay now, but the way she says it makes it painfully obvious ... she's protecting her sister who is way off the wagon again.
As far as we know, Kim is still MIA. She hasn't returned to rehab and the last she was seen was in Cabo.
TLC's '19 Kids and Counting'
If You're Betting ...
Put $20 on Cancellation
5/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It is way more likely than not that TLC will cancel "19 Kids and Counting" ... this according to sources connected with the network.
As it was put to us, "If you're betting, you'd be wise to put money on the show getting cancelled."
Our sources say there are several reasons why sentiment inside the network leans in the direction of cancellation. First, TLC honchos feel betrayed that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not disclose the fact that Josh had confessed to molesting 5 young girls, some of whom were his sisters.
The other reality ... as TMZ reported, advertisers are bailing left and right, and the network is in the business of making money.
There's also a notion at TLC that they need to clear the decks of scandals. They did it swiftly with "Honey Boo Boo," and there's a strong feeling the right thing to do is cancel the Duggars as well.
When you combine anger with money, the fate of the show becomes pretty clear.
Creator of 'Oprah,' 'Dr. Phil'
Dies at 66
5/27/2015 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael King, who with brother Roger created and syndicated wildly successful shows, including "Oprah" and "Dr. Phil," has died ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us King and his wife went to France several weeks ago to visit their son and contracted a bad infection when he returned home. He was admitted to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood 20 days ago, where he was treated in ICU for pneumonia.
King was placed on a ventilator and did not get better. His health continued to deteriorate and at around 1 pm today we're told doctors removed him from life support. We're told he died several hours later.
King, who was the CEO of King World Productions, was considered one of the most successful producers in TV history. In addition to Oprah and Phil, he acquired the rights to "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy."
King was 66.
Nicole Scherzinger To Ex
You Can Have Kendall Jenner
I Have This Sexy Body
5/28/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Our photog practically tripped over his tongue when he spotted the 36-year-old leaving The Sayers Club in Hollywood. He mentions Nicole's former BF, Formula 1 champ Lewis Hamilton, but mum's the word.
As we reported, all signs point to Lewis hooking up with 19-year-old Kendall, but at nearly twice Kendall's age ... Nicole's gotta still make Lewis think about his choices.
