Robert Downey Jr. sat for an interview to promote "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" ... but when the reporter changed topics to Downey's distant past, the actor walked out, telling the guy he didn't sign up for a Diane Sawyer sit-down.
Downey was talking all things Avengers with Channel 4 News in London Wednesday to promote the release of his new flick and he handled things like a hero until the interviewer -- Krishnan Guru-Murthy -- brought up prison, politics and family.
Downey cautions the guy, but Guru-Murthy was done talkin' cinema. Downey eventually removes the mic and walks out, but not before telling the guy he was "a little Diane Sawyer-y."
Brace yourself, Chris Brown ... the chick previously best known as your ex-gf just upgraded her title to ... Karrueche Tran -- star of a hit Emmy nominated show.
Karrueche's budding acting career just got a boost when her most recent gig for "The Bay" -- an online soap opera -- got nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series.
KT joined the cast last year ... taking over the role of Vivian Johnson -- who mysteriously returns to her hometown. She beat out 100 other actresses for the role, and so far has only appeared in 6 episodes -- but we're told she's getting a beefy story line for Season 4.
So, while Chris is off playing daddy ... Karrueche's working on getting her own 4 pound baby -- dipped in gold.
The Rock, Vin Diesel,and Paul Walker are all names you will see at the end of"Furious 7" ... problem is the people actually responsible for most of the adrenaline pumping action are irate because they were left out of the end credits.
Sources directly connected with production tell us, the 2nd unit crew was responsible for all the major action ... including the parachuting car scene and the mountain road chase.
We're told the stunt team members feel like they were "punched in the gut" when they realized 25 members of their team -- many of whom risked their lives -- were left out of the credits.
And get this ... Paul Walker's 2nd unit stunt double -- who was inside a bus as it fell off a cliff -- was uncredited.
We contacted Universal ... they told us they're looking into it.
'Love & Hip Hop' couple Mendeecees Harris and Yandy Smith might be honeymooning in a federal prison ... because the groom just plead guilty to running a drug ring in upstate NY.
Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years.
Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August -- good thing for him ... since he and Yandy are getting married next month on "Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding." By the way, he also has to surrender all his paychecks from 'LHH.'
The only good news for Yandy -- when her hubby gets locked up ... she'll get back most of the $200k she put up for his bail when he originally got busted last year.
Robbie Knievel has said he's a frickin' drinking, driving daredevil ... and cops believe he's stayed true to his word -- he's been busted for a felony DUI.
According to law enforcement ... Knievel -- the son of the legendary Evel Knievel -- caused a brutal 4-car pile up on a Montana road and fled the scene Tuesday night after blazing around drunk as a skunk ... no injuries were reported.
Knievel was rounded up by cops within a block of the crash standing outside his vehicle and allegedly smelling like booze but he refused the breathalyzer and they hauled him in for a blood test.
As you may recall ... Robbie was busted back in 2013 for blowing 3x the legal limit in South Dakota and came on TMZ Live, unapologetically admitting he was a full-blown alcoholic.
As of Wednesday morning he was still in police custody.
Amy went for a quick laugh Tuesday night as Kimye cruised into the event -- faking a fall right in front of them as they posed for pics. Now, every comic knows a good pratfall gets a laugh every time ... UNLESS you're playing to an audience of 2 who ain't having it one bit.
Yeezy and KK's faces said it all ... 100% pure unimpressed shade.
As for where Amy got the ridiculous idea it's fun to upstage people? Who knows ... maybe Taylor SwiftandBeckhave a clue.
The famous sunglasses that became Elton John's signature in the '70s have been mysteriously stolen right out of a famous museum.
A pair of Elton's iconic heart-shaped shades -- which he frequently wore while performing songs like "Saturday Night's Alright," "Daniel," "Philadelphia Freedom," "Crocodile Rock," and "Tiny Dancer" went missing Tuesday from the Rock 'n' Soul Museum in Memphis.
Cops tell TMZ, the manager reported someone opened the locked case which housed the spectacles, but they have no idea how it happened. Museum honchos say someone had to use tools in order to jimmy the lock.
Surveillance cameras did not catch the thief. Cops are now on the hunt for a shady suspect.
Mila Kunishas nice breasts ... problem is, she stole them along with other chicken parts, this according to a new lawsuit filed by a woman who claims to have been her best Ukrainian friend.
Kristina Karo claims 25 years ago she was in first grade with Mila in the Ukraine and they were inseparable. But Kristina says Mila had chicken envy -- specifically a chicken which answered to the name Doggie. Kristina alleges in her lawsuit she loved Doggie like a dog, and so did Mila, who would come to her house and play with the little clucker.
But one day Doggie disappeared, and Kristina says Mila confessed that she stole it, saying, "Kristina, you can have any other chicken as a pet, you have a whole chicken farm."
Kristina says in her lawsuit she became an emotional wreck and went into therapy.
Years passed, Mila moved to L.A. and became a big star. Kristina also eventually moved to L.A. to pursue a singing career. But the proximity brought back all the bad memories, and Kristina says the visions of Doggie being stolen by her former best friend threw her right back into therapy.
Kristina now needs shrink money, and a little extra for all the emotional distress ... in all, $5k.
And Kristina says Mila's conduct has prevented her from pursuing the American dream.
Justin Bieber's had cops called on him so many times, he should be on a first name basis with 'em ... which might explain why he's suddenly super tight with a Bev Hills PD officer.
Law enforcement sources tell us Justin was getting his usual Vitamin C fix at Kreation Juice in BH last weekend when an officer strolled in, spotted him, and for a change ... did NOT ask him to turn down his music.
We're told the officer -- who's kinda got pop star looks himself -- actually copped to being a fan, and JB obliged by posing for a photo.
Talk about a 180 -- back in Bieber's B.H. condo days, circa 2014 ... police were constantly at his door for rowdy parties. On one particular night they even came a knockin' SIX times!
Now that Justin's moved -- absence has clearly made the heart grow fonder.
Ben Affleck is owning up to coercing "Finding Your Roots" producers to omit the fact one of his ancestors owned slaves -- and admits he was embarrassed by the discovery.
Affleck copped to lobbying the PBS show to hold the slavery -- which it did -- because "the very thought left a bad taste in my mouth." In the apology, posted on Facebook, he says participating in the show makes you vulnerable ... and he assumed it would not "include things you think would embarrass your family."
The cover-up only came to light when WikiLeaks posted hacked Sony emails between Ben and show execs.
Ben says he believes America's slavery history should not be swept under the rug ... and adds, "I regret my initial thoughts that the issue of slavery not be included in the story. We deserve neither credit nor blame for our ancestors."
