If you're rebounding from JUSTIN BIEBER, you could do a lot worse than JOSH HUTCHERSON.  Josh and SELENA GOMEZ were spotted leaving the Beverly Hilton arm-in-arm after the "Golden Globes".There's no word if anything's actually going on here . . . but it would definitely be an interesting hook-up.

There's been some post-"Golden Globes" buzz about "Silver Linings Playbook" co-stars JENNIFER LAWRENCE and BRADLEY COOPER.  But it's not happening. Bradley says, "We've done two movies together.  If it didn't happen by now, it's not going to happen.  No no no no no.  Not even close.  First of all I could be her father.  I love her to death.  She's amazing but no." Their second movie together is called "Serena".  It's not out yet.  As for their ages, Bradley is 38, Jennifer is 22.)

The producers of "The Canyons" are reportedly considering leaking LINDSAY LOHAN'S four-way sex scene to the Internet in order to drum up a deal for a theatrical release . . . because so far, no distributors are interested.  Lindsay is fully nude in the scene.

TMZ claims that LINDSAY LOHAN was in England recently, hanging out with MAX GEORGE from THE WANTED . . . and they made a trip to Manchester so she could meet his parents.That doesn't necessarily mean they're anything more than Friends Who Fornicate.  A source says they're still not officially dating. And according to the not-always-reliable British tabloids, Max recently said, quote, "She was good to party with, but there's definitely not going to be any babies on the horizon." Meanwhile . . . TMZ says that Lindsay's fired her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley . . . who did an AMAZING job of keeping her out of jail over the years . . . and replaced her with some sleazy New York shark.

The "New York Post" claims that RUSSELL CROWE enjoyed an early morning "couples massage" with so-called "burlesque star" DITA VON TEESE.  (--And by burlesque star, we of course mean STRIPPER.)Dita was previously married to MARILYN MANSON.  Crowe recently split with his wife of nine years, Australian singer Danielle Spencer.

SHARON OSBOURNE is still whining about LADY GAGA for calling out her daughter KELLY as the hypocrite she is.Yesterday on "The Talk", she said, quote, "Don't let your fans be so hideously damaging, hurtful, violent . . . on your website."If you are a Mother Monster, monitor it.  Why haven't you, as a responsible young woman, said, 'No violence on my website, no violence, no threats, no violence.'" She also criticized the gun imagery Gaga uses in her act . . . including her GUN BRA . . . which she wore as recently as last week in Canada. 

Speaking to the media after the "Golden Globes", QUENTIN TARANTINO dropped an N-bomb while discussing his use of the N-word in "Django Unchained".  He said, quote, "If somebody is out there actually saying it when it comes to [the N-word], that the fact that I was using it in the movie more than it was used in the Antebellum South in Missippii in 1858, then feel free to make that case.  But no one is actually making that case."

 

 

 

During her rousing speech at the "Golden Globes", JODIE FOSTER made it sound like she's retiring from acting.  Apparently that's not the case.Backstage, she said, quote, "I could never stop acting.  You'd have to drag me behind a team of horses."

TINA FEY and AMY POEHLER were far better "Golden Globe" hosts than RICKY GERVAIS, and the numbers proved it.  Sunday's show attracted 19.7 million viewers, which is a six-year high.-That's also 17% higher than Ricky's ratings last year, which only had 16.9 million viewers.

Disney announced release dates for several of its big, upcoming movies.  Possibly the biggest of the bunch, "Pirates of the Caribbean 5", is due out in July of 2015.  JOHNNY DEPP is coming back, but there's no word on any other casting.-Meanwhile, "Muppets 2" will hit theaters in March of 2014.  The cast includes TINA FEY, RICKY GERVAIS and "Modern Family's" TY BURRELL.  (--Jason Segel is NOT returning.)-ANGELINA JOLIE'S "Maleficent" comes out July of '14.And "Captain America:  The Winter Soldier" will drop in April of 2014.  This sequel is third on deck in the upcoming "Avengers" rotation.  Before that you'll get "Iron Man 3" in May, and "Thor 2" in November.  "Avengers 2" is after all three of those films.  It comes out in 2015.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has released an "open letter", where he announced that his new album will be called "The 20/20 Experience", and said it'll be out sometime "this year."  He also apologized for "teasing" his fans over the past few days . . . but admitted that he REALLY ENJOYED DOING IT.

Lindsay Lohan COULD have avoided almost certain jail time by accepting a plea deal for lockdown rehab -- that is, if she didn't fire her lawyer who was literally on the way to the courthouse to make it happen.

 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Santa Monica City Attorney -- who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway -- was willing keep Lindsay out of jail, PROVIDED she agree to check into "lockdown rehab" for 6 months.Sources say ... Shawn Holley -- the lawyer who has kept Lindsay out of jail -- was on her way to court Monday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to hash out the deal.  What's more, Lindsay also faces jail time for a probation violation in the jewelry heist case because she allegedly lied to cops after the crash.  We're told the judge could have agreed to end both cases if Lindsay checked into rehab.But Shawn never made it to court, because Lindsay signed her walking papers and hired a New York lawyer who was suspended in the '90s from practicing law for 5 years.Lindsay now says she wants Shawn back. The question -- does Shawn have the stomach for another helping of Lindsay?  There's a hearing scheduled for 8:30 AM PT today.  Shawn will probably show up because she's still counsel of record.  If she stays on the case, prosecutors could present the deal to her, but Lindsay is making it all very difficult.

 

 

 

"Terminator 2" actor Edward Furlong was arrested this weekend on suspicion of attacking his GF... TMZ has learned ... the THIRD time he's been accused of domestic violence in three months.Law enforcement sources tell us, Furlong was popped in L.A. Sunday morning around 5:45 AM. We're told he also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest, stemming from one of his prior domestic violence incidents.Furlong is still in custody. As we reported, Furlong was previously arrested in October following a domestic violence incident involving his GF at LAX -- when he allegedly bruised her up during an argument at the airport.Furlong was subsequently accused of another domestic violence incident in November.

What a bargain!Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are selling their luxurious New York City 6,792 sq. ft. apartment for a cool $24.5 million.The two story penthouse is equipped with five bedrooms, two dining rooms, an eat-in kitchen, a gym, two offices and a media room.The best part of the apartment though, has to be the HUGE outdoor living area that's almost as big as the indoor living space at 2,500 sq. ft. Oh and there also happens to be a hot tub, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and outdoor shower.
