Oliver Stone Would Be Soooooooo Proud!

As Futbol Fever takes over the US of A, not everyone is excited. Take Dr. Keith Ablow, a panelist on Fox News’s Outnumbered, for instance. He thinks that the World Cup is just a way to distract people from what's really going on in the world. “It’s like Rome. I can see why Obama would enjoy the World Cup…”



This on the heels of conservative columnist Ann Coulter’s manifesto on soccer last week. She thinks it’s all just a liberal conspiracy. “"In soccer, the blame is dispersed and almost no one scores anyway. There are no heroes, no losers, no accountability, and no child's fragile self-esteem is bruised.”

Oh, and she doesn’t like the fact that you can’t use your hands in soccer, as our opposable thumbs are “what sets man apart from the lesser beasts.” Having a soul also factors into that whole setting-man-apart scenario for Ann, which is interesting, since she seems to be missing hers.

Shia Labeouf Handcuffed in "Cabaret"

Actor Shia Labeouf was arrested during a Broadway performance of “Cabaret” on Friday night. And no, it wasn’t part of the show.

He allegedly yelled at the actors, using obscenities, and even lit a cigarette at one point. When security guards and the police tried to remove him, he became aggressive and in colorful terms offered to rearrange their faces and more.

A passerby happened to snap a picture of Shia and some police officers outside the theater. Shia was booked and released later that night, and has to go to court late next month to answer the charges.


We’re getting whispers of a possible defense. He thought he was in a movie theater watching one of his own films. Pretty plausible reason to go a little whacko.

In the meantime, he'll be busy filming his new movie, Train Wreck, with his co-starts - Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.

Can You Go Overboard on a Kardashian Birthday!

Okay, it’s time for French Montana to knock it off. To celebrate Khloe Kardashian’s birthday over the weekend, he went a little wild with his credit card.

First, he got Khloe a Jeep. Which you would think would be enough.

Enough? For a Kardashian? Ha!

He also got her $30K worth of jewelry. Because the Jeep don’t mean a thing if Khloe don’t have the bling. Am I right?

I mean, the girl’s birthday party was on her yacht. And you just don’t show up to a birthday party on a yacht with a gift card from Applebee’s. Unless you want to leave the yacht on the water side.

Paul McCartney Remembers MJ While Katy Perry Sort of Doesn't Remember Paul

This is from a couple of weeks ago, but it’s a neat little video clip. Katy Perry and Paul McCartney (who ever thought they would ever share a couch?) were guests on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show.

Katy was trying to salute Paul, but she stumbled a little when she got to “… and the fact that you’re still here today…” Pretty funny the way it worked out.

And then Paul tells a great story about meeting and working with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and some interesting advice Paul gave him. Check it out…

Attagirl, Amy Adams!

This is one of those rare feel-good stories, and it’s definitely worth sharing.

Actress Amy Adams – from American Hustle, Man of Steel, Trouble with the Curve and more – was flying to LA from Detroit last week when she quietly arranged with airline personnel to give her first-class seat to a US serviceman.

She tried to keep the exchange private, but of course, we all know that’s impossible these days. When the media found out, she said she didn’t do it to bring attention to herself – she did it bring attention to the troops.

Nicely played, Amy.

Jimmy Fallon's Random Lip Sync Challenge

VidCon 2014 was held over the weekend in Anaheim. It’s called the “world’s premier gathering of people who make online video,” so a lot of creative folks would be expected in attendance.

The folks at The Tonight Show set up a Random Lip Sync Challenge booth at the convention, giving folks the chance to lip sync – but the song selection wasn’t made until they were inside the booth.

These two guys ended up with Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” when the wheel stopped spinning. Watch the video, and tell me: do you get the sense these guys have performed this one before?

Yeah, me too…

Showbiz Hero of the Day: Amy Adams Gave Up Her First Class Seat to a Soldier
 
AMY ADAMS is our SHOWBIZ HERO OF THE DAY, for giving up her first class airplane seat to a SOLDIER on a flight from Detroit to L.A.  She tried to do it inconspicuously, but other passengers saw what happened.  
 
One of those passengers was Jemele Hill from ESPN's "Numbers Never Lie".  She says, quote, "As I was getting seated, I saw the flight attendant guide the soldier to Ms. Adams' seat.
 
 "She was no longer in it, but it was pretty clear that she'd given up her seat for him.  I was incredibly impressed.  [She] did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character."
 
Amy took the soldier's seat in coach, and even took pictures of some of the other passengers.
 
When the press contacted Amy, she said, quote, "I didn't do it for attention for myself.  I did it for attention for the Troops."
 
Amy's father was in the service, and she spent her early years living on military bases.
 

 
Hours Before His Arrest Thursday, Shia LaBeouf Was Chasing A Homeless Guy Around for His Hat
 
Several hours before being arrested for disrupting a Broadway revival of "Cabaret" this past Thursday, SHIA LABEOUF was seen out on the street . . . chasing a homeless guy around for his hat.  
 
Witnesses said it looked like Shia thought the hat was his, and was trying to get it back.  He was also acting like he knew the homeless guy, saying stuff like, "It's me, Shia" and acting, quote, "whacked out."  
 
Since Shia didn't get to finish watching "Cabaret", LIZA MINNELLI'S rep sent him a DVD copy of the 1972 movie version.  He says, quote, "I figured he may want to find out how it ends."

KHLOE KARDASHIAN turned 30 on Friday, and there was plenty of celebrating.

Miley Cyrus Got a New Dog, and Says Her Dead Dog Gave Her Its Blessing
 
MILEY CYRUS has a new dog.  She lost her Alaskan Klee Kai, Floyd, to a coyote in April.  Then her mom bought her a puppy, but it didn't work out.  (An Alaskan Klee Kai is kind of like a Husky, but smaller.)
 
She got her new dog last week.  He's a Collie named Emu Coyne Cyrus and she says she got Floyd's BLESSING.
 
She posted on Instagram that she had a memorial service for Floyd, and that quote, "I felt my angel Floydy give Emu his blessing.  I prayed to Floyd to just give him a touch of his awesomeness, and he has."  
 
 
 
Mark Ruffalo Says Ben Affleck Won't Let Jennifer Garner Be Friends with Him
 
JENNIFER GARNER and MARK RUFFALO played soul mates in the 2004 movie, "13 Going on 30".  And apparently Jen's husband BEN AFFLECK wants to make sure that never happens in REAL life.
 
On Thursday, Mark was a guest on "Watch What Happens Live", promoting his new movie "Begin Again".  And someone called in to ask if he and Jen are still friends.
 
According to Mark, they were GREAT friends . . . until she started dating Ben, who put a stop to it.  Quote, "We had a great time together . . . But then Ben came on the scene, and that was the end of that."
 
Ben and Jennifer started dating right around the time "13 Going on 30" came out.  It's also worth noting that Mark WAS already married at that point.

Fox News Heats Up

On Wednesday, Fox News host Neil Cavuto got into a bit of a shouting match with US Representative Michele Bachman during an interview about House Speaker John Boehner’s plans to sue the president over his use of executive actions.

Cavuto thinks the whole thing would be “an enormous waste of effort.” Bachman mostly disagreed, and went further to suggest that Congress should act know and “defund the executive branch.”

That is, take away the funding for one of the three branches of US government. “Cut it. Make it hurt. Because if they don’t have the money, they won’t have power.”

I don’t know if contentious is the right word to describe what followed, but Vince McMahon did call both of them later to try to sign them up for Wrestlemania 31.

Woodward, Bernstein & Parker?

There’s talk that Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker could be returning to television in a show about two investigative reporters who blow the lid off the biggest corruption scandal in Philadelphia’s history.

It’s based on a real-life story chronicled in Busted: A Tale of Corruption And Betrayal In The City of Brotherly Love. Talk is that the show will be produced by the same folks who produced HBO’s recent hit series, True Detective.

No, it won’t have Sarah’s character chasing down Mister Big. As far as we know…

And she won’t be getting any help from her husband, Inspector Gadget. (Sorry, Matthew Broderick, but we haven’t quite forgotten that one yet.)

KJ's Hollywood Dirt for 6/27/2014

 

Shia LaBeouf Was Arrested After Disrupting a Broadway Play

 

SHIA LABEOUF was ARRESTED last night after disrupting a Broadway revival of "Cabaret".

 

Sources say he was being loud and disruptive during the first act, smoking inside the theater and, quote, "slapping random people on the behind and on the back of the head."

 

Shia was led out in handcuffs by security, then given over to police when he wouldn't stop being unruly.

 

Even when he got to the police station, he refused to calm down, telling them, quote, "[Eff] you!  I'll [eff] you up!"  They decided not to undo the cuffs, so he started SPITTING, and they had to put a mask on him.

 

He also told police, quote, "I have millions and millions of dollars and attorneys and I'm going to ruin your career."  And he called the cop who was fingerprinting him a homophobic slur.

 

 

Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy Are Leaving "The View" . . . Were They Fired?

 

Yesterday, SHERRI SHEPHERD and JENNY MCCARTHY announced that they're leaving "The View".  Sherri spent seven years on the show, and Jenny only lasted one.

 

Sherri said, quote, "After careful consideration, it's time for me to move on.  I'm extremely grateful to BARBARA WALTERS for giving me the opportunity . . . and I'm incredibly grateful to my 'View' family and my fans for supporting me."

 

Later in the day, Jenny Tweeted, quote, "If Sherri goes . . . I go too.  #Sisters.  My 'view' will be changing too.  As [it] will with many hard-working folks.  Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year."

 

They both made it sound like it was THEIR decision, but several reports say they were FIRED.  Supposedly, the show is looking to start all over . . . although as far as we know, WHOOPI GOLDBERG will remain.

 

 

 

'N Sync Will Be Together at Lance Bass's Wedding . . . But They Won't Perform

 

When LANCE BASS and his fiancé get married, 'N SYNC will be fully represented.  But don't expect them to perform. Lance says, "Yes, there will be a reunion.  But I doubt we'll be performing 'Bye Bye Bye'.  I think it's a little cheesy if I sing at all at my wedding."

 

But he adds, quote, "There will be a stage, there will be a band, so I'm sure if you see that on stage, people are going to be popping up and doing whatever they want to do, that will be an open mic for anyone else."

 

 

 

NBC is Doing a Miley Cyrus Concert Special 

 

NBC will air a two-hour MILEY CYRUS concert special called "Miley Cyrus:  Bangerz Tour" on Sunday, July 6th.  It'll include performances from the tour, and behind-the-scenes footage.

 

The big question is, WHAT THE HECK WILL NBC BE ABLE TO SHOW? 

 

Miley spends so much time onstage playing with her crotch, showing almost her entire backside, simulating relations on blow-up dolls, making lewd gestures with large phallic symbols and glorifying marijuana.

 

So good luck finding two hours' worth of FCC-friendly footage from that, NBC.

 

 

 

Robert De Niro Crashed Somebody's Apartment to Watch the U.S. / Germany Game

 

ROBERT DE NIRO really wanted to watch the U.S. / Germany World Cup game yesterday.  Unfortunately, he was filming his upcoming movie "The Intern" in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill neighborhood.

 

The production actually sent an email to a nearby apartment building, asking if they could put a satellite dish on their roof and run a cable from it down to the street, so he wouldn't miss the game.

 

But before that could happen, De Niro found an easier way to watch.  One of the residents in the building says, quote, "Apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them."

1.  "Transformers: Age of Extinction"  (PG-13)

Keira Knightley plays a songwriter who came to New York to help her boyfriend with his first record deal . . . and then gets dumped after he becomes a rock star.  She also does her own singing in the movie and has five songs on the soundtrack that's out Tuesday.

 

Mark Ruffalo is a record exec who convinces her to record her own music, "True Grit's" Hailee Steinfeld plays his daughter, and Adam Levine from Maroon 5 makes his acting debut as Keira's boyfriend.  Mos Def and Cee Lo Green are also in it.
