KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 9/29/2014

George Clooney Got Married This Weekend But It's Not Official YET


It finally happened.  GEORGE CLOONEY and AMAL ALAMUDDIN got married Saturday night in Venice, Italy.  Although technically there's still time for George to back out.  They're making it official with a civil ceremony today.



There were about 100 guests at Saturday's ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande Hotel . . . including Matt DamonBonoJohn Krasinski and his wife Emily BluntCindy Crawford and her husband Rande GerberEllen Barkin"Vogue" editor Anna Wintour and BILL MURRAY.



Gerber was reportedly the best man, and for some reason Julia Roberts wasn't able to attend.



A source says George and Amal held hands as they recited vows they wrote themselves.



After the ceremony, guests celebrated until well into the morning.  The menu included lobster, sea bass, beef, and risotto.  There's no confirmation on the rumor we heard last week that LANA DEL REY was going to sing.



But at one point, Amal's father took the microphone and put the pressure on them to start producing GRANDCHILDREN.  George may be 53, but Amal is only 36 . . . so they can both do the job required of them to reproduce. 



There aren't any photos yet, but the paparazzi seemed to be camped out along Venice's famous canals, as Clooney, Amal and their guests were zipped from place to place all weekend in water taxis.   



They were also spotted on Sunday wearing their wedding rings.



This is Amal's first marriage, but Clooney's second.  He was married to actress TALIA BALSAM from 1989 to 1993.




Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini Got Rear-Ended by a Drunk Driver


JENNIFER LOPEZ and LEAH REMINI were rear-ended by a drunk driver in a pickup truck Saturday when they went out for lunch with their kids.  Thankfully, they are all okay.



Leah was driving J-Lo's car on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when they were hit at a red light.  The drunk took off, but they called 911 and he was caught.



J-Lo posted a selfie of her and Leah in the car, along with the caption, quote, "Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!!  Thank god everyone ok!!!"



Then she went INSANE with hashtags, including "don't drink and drive", "cursed that fool out" and "the Bronx came out."



She also wrote, "#dontmesswithmycocnuts.  She was referring to the kids, and meant to say COCONUTS.



And we know this because earlier in the day, she posted a picture of her 6-year-old twins Max and Emme in the backseat with Leah's 10-year-old daughter Sofia . . . and one of the hashtags was "coconuts".





Denzel Washington's "The Equalizer" Was #1 at the Box Office


"The Equalizer" had a solid opening weekend at the box office, easily taking the #1 spot with $35 million.  That's the fourth biggest September debut of all time . . . and the third best opening of DENZEL WASHINGTON'S career. 



(Denzel's two best opening weekends were from "American Gangster" and "Safe House" . . . which opened with $56 million and $54 million, respectively.)



The stop-motion animated movie "The Boxtrolls" was the weekend's other wide release.  It made $17.3 million in 3rd place.  Here are this week's Top 5 movies:



1.  NEW:  "The Equalizer", $35 million.


2.  "The Maze Runner", $17.5 million.  Up to $58 million in its 2nd week.


3.  NEW:  "The Boxtrolls", $17.3 million.

5.  "Dolphin Tale 2", $4.8 million.  Up to $33.7 million in its 3rd week.




It Might NOT Be Over for John Mellencamp And Meg Ryan


JOHN MELLENCAMP had nothing but nice things to say about his ex-girlfriend MEG RYAN and hinted the couple may not be done just yet. 


John told the Associated Press "I'm very happy with the time I've spent with Meg Ryan.  She's a beautiful girl and I know that I will never, ever, ever be with a funnier girl than her. Not gonna happen. I'm grateful for the three-and-a-half years we've been together," he added. 


Despite calling it quits over the summer,  Mellencamp hinted that things might not be done entirely.  "Nothing's over," he said, when asked about their current status. "Nothing's over. I never say die for anything. Do you ever quit on anything?"




More Stolen Celebrity Photos Have Been Posted, Including Anna Kendrick and Cara Delevingne


More celebrity photos leaked over the weekend.  The latest round of victims include Anna KendrickCara Delevingne, volleyball minx Misty May-Treanor and Brook Burns.

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 9/26/2014

In today's Hollywood Dirt, a man tries to tackle Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears' says she'll be writing some "I hate men" songs for her next album plus the few details we know about George Clooney getting married this weekend and more!



The Smiley Morning Show gives you the Hollywood Dirt each morning on 99.5 WZPL but if you miss it or want to share a story, you can always find it here too plus some stories we didn't get to on the air!



Just 'Like' my page while you're here to make sure you get the daily Dirt updates!







That Ukrainian Red Carpet Crasher Tried to Tackle Kim Kardashian


A man nearly TACKLED KIM KARDASHIAN as she, KANYE WEST and KRIS JENNER were getting out of a limo to attend a fashion show in Paris yesterday.   


Not surprisingly, it was Ukrainian "journalist" Vitalii Sediuk . . . the guy who's become infamous for his red carpet pranks.  He apparently dove at Kim's legs as she was getting out of the limo, almost taking her down.



But there were a ton of people crowded around to hold her up, and to pull this guy off her.



We first heard about Vitalii in 2012, when he tried to kiss WILL SMITH on the mouth and got a backhand slap for his efforts.



Earlier this year, he ambushed both BRADLEY COOPER and LEONARDO DICAPRIO at separate events, getting down on his knees and hugging both men around the crotch.  


At the Cannes Film Festival in March, he climbed under AMERICA FERRERA's dress.  And a few weeks later he attacked BRAD PITT at the premiere of "Maleficent" and broke his glasses. 


He even got onstage at the Grammys somehow and almost crashed one of ADELE's acceptance speeches.



He actually issued a statement after the Kardashian incident saying, quote, "I hope Kim is okay and won't be mad at me as I didn't mean any harm.  Kanye is one lucky man as Kim is a goddess!"



He also said he's doing it as a PROTEST, because he's BANNED from entering the U.S.




George Clooney is Getting Married in Venice This Weekend


The details are still pretty much under wraps, but GEORGE CLOONEY and AMAL ALAMUDDIN are getting married in Venice this weekend.


George has commandeered the Hotel Cipriani, where guests should begin arriving today.  This is expected to be a three-day celebration, with the actual wedding taking place tomorrow night.


It'll be a black-tie affair, with only about 60 guests, including BonoEllen BarkinSandra Bullock and her son Louis, Matt Damon and his wife, Julia Roberts and her husband, Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber . . . 


And, of course, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  There are reports that Brad will be the best man.  Oh, and Lana Del Rey is going to sing.




Britney Spears' Next Album Is Apparently About Her Conflicted Feelings Toward Men


BRITNEY SPEARS broke up with her boyfriend David Lucado last month . . . supposedly because he cheated on her.  So, is Britney going to go the TAYLOR SWIFT route and trash him on her next album?  Maybe.



She says, quote, "I think you take your experiences that you go through and definitely put it into your work.  So, I'm gonna have a lot of 'I hate men' songs, and then a lot of 'I love men' songs.  So, it kinda goes both ways."




Justin Bieber Is Voicing the "Knight Rider" Car KITT in an Upcoming David Hasselhoff Comedy


Can you imagine JUSTIN BIEBER providing the voice for KITT . . . the talking car from "Knight Rider"?  Well, it's happening.



DAVID HASSELHOFF says he asked Justin to do it as a favor, for an upcoming movie called "Killing Hasselhoff", which is a comedy about a guy who tries to win a celebrity death pool by hiring a hit man to kill The Hoff.



The Hoff says, quote, "I think he's a cool kid, and he gets a bad rap.  He's a good guy and I like his music, I've known him for five years."



Justin was spotted with The Hoff filming scenes for the movie, so he's also appearing in the movie . . . although there aren't any further specifics on that.



WILLIAM DANIELS was the voice of KITT on the original "Knight Rider".  He's the guy who played Mr. Feeny on "Boy Meets World".



"Hangover" star KEN JEONG and comedian JIM JEFFERIES are also in the movie, and have confirmed that they worked with Justin, and that he was great.




New Movies: Denzel's "The Equalizer" and the Animated Flick "The Boxtrolls" Are in Theaters


1.  "The Equalizer"  (R) 



Denzel Washington plays a retired special ops agent who's just trying to lead a quiet life and put his past behind him, until his friends become the victims of violent crimes.

The movie's a violent remake of the 1985 TV series that starred an old white guy named Edward Woodward.  It's directed by Antoine Fuqua, who previously teamed up with Denzel on "Training Day".




2.  "The Boxtrolls"  (PG)  Trailer

It's made by the same people who did the Dakota Fanning movie "Coraline".  Her little sister Elle Fanning is in this one as a human girl helping Eggs save the boxtrolls.

Another Woman Trespassed in Keanu Reeves' House . . . And This One Was Naked


Last week, KEANU REEVES woke up at 4:00 A.M. to find a woman sitting in a chair in his library.  Well, three days later, ANOTHER woman walked into Keanu's house . . . and this one was NAKED.



She just waltzed through an unlocked door, took a shower and then jumped into Keanu's pool.  (!!!)  Keanu wasn't home at the time, but there was a cleaning crew there.  They called Keanu, and he called 911.



Like the other woman, she was taken away for psychiatric evaluation. 




Lindsay Lohan Will Hound Tina Fey Until She Makes a "Mean Girls" Sequel


10 years after "Mean Girls"LINDSAY LOHAN wants to go back and do a sequel.  She even has a script idea, and she's already pitched it to TINA FEY.



She says, quote, "People really love the movie:  how do you top that?  I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said we should do another 'Mean Girls', like an older version where they're all housewives and they're all cheating.



"That would be really funny.  I'll harass Tina to write it."




Does Kim Kardashian Have a Secret Cell Phone So Kanye West Can't Check Up On Her?


Is there already trouble in paradise?  "OK!" magazine says KIM KARDASHIAN is so tired of KANYE WEST snooping on her phone that she got a SECOND phone he doesn't know about.  Or, he DIDN'T know about it until now.  Sorry, Kim.


A source says, quote, "Kim never thought he'd check it every single night.  She insists she's got nothing to hide, but she's just sick of him questioning who she's talking to."




Tabloid Trash: Does Jennifer Lopez Sacrifice Chickens?


We've heard rumors in the past that JENNIFER LOPEZ has ties to Santeria . . . an African (slash) Caribbean religion that uses rituals and ceremonies including ANIMAL SACRIFICE.



Well, "Life & Style" magazine claims that several of J-Lo's exes are planning to write a tell-all about her . . . and it will include her participation in these rituals.



A so-called "source" says, quote, "J-Lo secretly practices religious rituals of Santeria . . . including sacrificing chickens!  That's the last thing her image needs."



Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa Are Divorcing . . . And Nick Cannon Says He Had Nothing to Do With it



After only 14 months of marriage, rapper WIZ KHALIFA and model AMBER ROSE are getting divorced.



Amber is asking for full custody of their 19-month-old son Sebastian, with visitation for Wiz.  And she wants him to pay child support.  She also wants Wiz to cover her legal fees.   


Sources say this is NOT an amicable split, and that there are allegations of cheating by one or both of them.



Interestingly, NICK CANNON became Amber's manager last week, so there were already the typical rumors that they're hooking up.  And the fact that HIS marriage went bust is only fueling those rumors.



But sources say Nick is denying it, and claiming he just learned about Amber's marital problems when she signed with him.

Jenny McCarthy and Avril Lavigne are the Latest Hacking Victims


Hacked nudes of JENNY MCCARTHY and AVRIL LAVIGNE showed up online yesterday.  Although in both cases, some of the pics might be fake.


Jenny's rep says a "small number" of photos were indeed stolen from her account.  But he added that many of them are, quote, "not McCarthy at all, but someone else, including the most explicit nude photos."


McCarthy's representatives are reporting the theft to the FBI and contacting all websites posting the photos to demand the immediate removal of all personal and private photos of her, including nude photos." 



In Avril's case, there are definitely legit pictures of her in lingerie.  But there are also topless photos where her face isn't visible, so we can't be sure they're really her.



Meanwhile, ARIANA GRANDE continues to claim the pictures of her that leaked were actually somebody else.



And STEVE-O from "Jackass" Tweeted a challenge to whoever's behind this chaos.  Along with a naked but censored photo of himself, he wrote, "I just added lots of crazy nude photos to my iCloud, let's see how good these hackers really are!"




Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn Will Headline Season 2 of "True Detective"


HBO has FINALLY confirmed the cast of the second season of "True Detective".  COLIN FARRELL and VINCE VAUGHN will star . . . replacing MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY and WOODY HARRELSON, who did the first season.



The show is doing the anthology thing . . . like "American Horror Story" . . . so each season will feature a different story and cast of characters.  The first season was about two Louisiana homicide detectives hunting for a serial killer.



For now, all we know about Season Two is that it's about, quote, "three police officers and a career criminal navigating a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder."



Colin's character is "a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him."



And Vince is playing "a career criminal, who's in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner." 



No other casting has been announced.  The show will probably premiere next summer.




Liam Neeson Says There Will Be One More “Taken” Movie And Then No More


LIAM NEESON says that 'Taken 3' may be the last Taken movie. It does appear that he understands that too many of these movies would be a little ridiculous.


He tells USA Today, "I have to go on the run, I'll put it that way, from the not-so-lawful types and the lawful authorities. Bryan Mills served his country faithfully, but now even they are after him. They must not like me. If my daughter was 'taken' again on a trip, Bryan Mills would have to be certifiably locked up for bad parenting. It's a rollicking good story, but I think this is the end.'' 




Robin Williams’ Daughter Returned to Twitter To Thank Her Followers For Support


ROBIN WILLIAMS' daughter ZELDA returned to Twitter yesterday, after leaving social media last month because or rude comments over her father's death.  She thanked her followers for, quote, "all the stories and letters I've been receiving, especially from those who've also lost loved ones."


She continued: "I don't come online often, but reading of others who have dealt with this loss & gone on to live happy, full lives is helpful. Truly." 



The 25-year-old daughter of the late Oscar winner concluded by posting a happy photo of her dad joyously singing alongside Sesame Street's two-headed monster.




Idina Menzel Thinks You Probably Hate Her


If you’re a parent of toddlers, you’ve probably seen Frozen more times that you can count.  You may even be to the point that you’re getting angry when you hear those catchy little songs.  IDINA MENZEL understands. And she’s sorry.


“You probably hate me [if you have kids],” Menzel told the audience during a private performance in New York on Monday night, a spy told pagesix.com.


In March, “Frozen” became the highest-grossing animated film of all time, crossing the $1 billion mark, according to Variety.

Nick Jonas Dodge Questions on Why He Stopped Wearing His Purity Ring


NICK JONAS doesn't wear that purity ring anymore.  In a new interview, when he was asked about the ring he answered, quote, "No.  This is a real growth in me and that's not something I'm doing anymore.  



"But I've got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life and that's all that matters."



He adds, quote, "My belief in God is still very strong and important to me as a person and I think that's all that should matter . . . What's important now is my relationship with God, and that I not judge and that I not be judged."




Jenny McCarthy Lost her Wedding Ring . . . When She Took It Off So She Wouldn't Scratch Donnie Wahlberg During Sex


JENNY MCCARTHY just married DONNIE WAHLBERG a few weeks ago, and she's already lost her wedding ring.  But Donnie probably doesn't mind, because she lost it for a good cause.



She says, quote, "We were staying in a hotel and . . . it's hard to get romantic with diamonds on your hand.  I removed it and put it on the room service table and then they came and turned down the room and the ring was gone."



She added, quote, "But you know what though?  If you're gonna lose your wedding ring, you should lose it that way."




Shia LaBeouf Got a Restraining Order Against a Woman Who Thinks He's Einstein


SHIA LABEOUF is a bit of an odd bird but at least one woman thinks he's a genius.  Shia had to get a restraining order against a woman named Graciela Nahle . . . who apparently thinks he's ALBERT EINSTEIN.



Graciela has been bothering Shia for months, and has even been to his house several times. 



During one visit she was eating watermelon in his driveway and screamed at him, quote, "I am going to blow up your house!   I am going to blow up the world!  You are Albert Einstein and we belong together!"




Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling Have a Daughter


Even though they never even admitted they were expecting, EVA MENDES and RYAN GOSLING welcomed a baby girl last Friday.  There's no word on their new daughter's name.



A source says, quote, "She's absolutely in heaven being a mom.  She's never been happier.  She and Ryan are just in awe of this beautiful person they created.  It's a really special time for them."




A Fan Caught Video of Beyoncé Apparently Forgetting to Lip-Sync


BEYONCÉ is a great singer . . . but these days, even the best singers lip-sync.  And apparently, she wasn't singing live at one of her shows in Paris this past weekend.



During her performance of "Partition", Beyoncé knelt down to greet some fans.  She stopped "singing," but the vocal track continued without her. A fan caught it on video. Honestly, I was so busy staring at the white body suit that I missed it the first time. I hate body suits. Can that trend go away soon? 



By the way, word has it Beyoncé and JAY Z are teaming up for a "huge" new album, which will come out in a year or so.  There aren't any further details at this point.  



(For a couple that's supposedly been on the cusp of divorce for months now, Beyoncé and Jay Z sure seem to enjoy doing stuff together.)


KJ's Kinda Nerdy News: SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT!  If you don't want to know ANYTHING about the next AVENGERS movie, DO NOT READ PAST THIS!!!


Here's the Plot of the New "Avengers" Movie


The official plot synopsis of "Avengers:  Age of Ultron" was released yesterday. This is your LAST CHANCE to avoid spoilers. 


Still with me?  Here we go:  "When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's [heroes] are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.



"As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure."



The synopsis also mentions Pietro and Wanda Maximoff . . . a.k.a. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.  They're played by AARON TAYLOR JOHNSON and ELIZABETH OLSEN.



Also, Iron Man's artificially intelligent computer helper, J.A.R.V.I.S., becomes the superhero Vision.  PAUL BETTANY does the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., and he'll be back in "Age of Ultron".



As you probably already know, JAMES SPADER is playing Ultron.  The movie comes out next May.
