Multiple sources are reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger was involved in a multi-car accident in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood Friday night.

TMZ reports that the former California governor, 74, was driving a GMC Yukon that collided with a red Prius, rolling over the smaller vehicle before continuing to rotate and impacting with a Porsche Cayenne. The accident occurred at the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Allenford Avenue, which the outlet says is about a mile from Arnold’s home.

The driver of the Prius sustained a head injury and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, they report, while Schwarzenegger, judging from pictures, was injured minorly enough that he was able to confer with police and others on the scene.

TMZ also notes that the “Terminator” star’s close friend and fitness personality Jake “Body by Jake” Steinfeld was also at the scene of the crash.

While TMZ puts the time of the crash at 5:00 p.m. PT, ABC Los Angeles affiliate ABC7 put it at 4:15. They also report that four cars were involved in the accident and that it was unclear whether Schwarzenegger was driving the Yukon.

A source close to the “Predator” star explained to TMZ that he was “deeply concerned” about the injured woman and intends to personally check up on her.

Police told ABC7 that no arrests had been made and they did not believe the incident involved any form of DUI or DWI.

Schwarzenegger finalized his divorce from Maria Shriver, 66, at the end of December. The couple had been married since 1986, separating in 2011 after it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a son, Joseph, with their housekeeper Mildred Baena.

The “Expendables” star has been dating physical therapist Heather Milligan, who is 27 years his junior, since 2013. Frequent “Today” show contributor Shriver, meanwhile, is single, friends told the Post, after splitting from political consultant Matthew Dowd in 2017.

Not content with limiting his wild and outrageous political views to his podcast, Rudy Giuliani got into a screaming match with an unidentified heckler Sunday while marching in a parade.

Giuliani was marching in New York City’s Celebrate Israel Parade behind Mayor Eric Adams on Sunday when an onlooker began to shout at him. Giuliani then stepped to the side to yell back. The beginning of the comments are difficult to discern — it seems like they’re shouting about crime statistics — but Giuliani eventually barks, “Me! I reduced crime, you jackass!”

As the other man continued yelling, Giuliani screamed back, “You are a brainwashed asshole. I am a class act! … You are probably as demented as Biden!” The exchange can be seen in a video posted to Twitter by The Forward’s senior political reporter, Jacob Kornbluh. Shortly after the shouting ended, Giuliani returned to marching in the parade, smiling and waving an Israel flag.

Marching behind Mayor Adams is @RudyGiuliani who gets into a shouting match with a Democrat.

“You are a jackass… You are a brainwashed asshole… you are probably as demented as Biden,” Giuliani told the guy

The president’s former personal lawyer, who spearheaded Trump’s efforts in court to overturn the 2020 election results, is fresh off his Friday testimony to the Jan. 6 committee. According to sources who spoke with CNN, Giuliani met with the committee for more than nine hours. Giuliani has also been under federal investigation as authorities look into his Ukraine activities and whether he broke lobbying laws as Trump’s attorney.

Colin Cantwell, Artist Who Designed Iconic ‘Star Wars’ Spacecrafts, Dead at 90

Colin Cantwell, the concept artist and designer credited with creating many of Star Wars’ iconic spacecrafts — including the TIE fighter, X-wing and Death Star — has died at the age of 90.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported Cantwell’s death Saturday at his Colorado home. While no cause of death was provided, his partner Sierra Dall said on his official Instagram page that he had been battling Alzheimer’s in recent years.

An animator and architect who almost studied under Frank Lloyd Wright, Cantwell gained a space background while working on educational videos for Jet Propulsion Laboratory and NASA in the late-Sixties amid the space race, Cantwell’s bio states.

Cantwell made his first big-screen impact when he was recruited by director Stanley Kubrick to work on 2001: A Space Odyssey, creating “special photographic effects” for the 1968 sci-fi classic; Cantwell is also credited with helping to develop some of the movie’s most awe-inspiring space sequences.

“Kubrick was distraught over the score and had fired multiple composers,” Cantwell’s website writes. “One night, while having an intimate conversations with Stanley over turkey sandwiches at Kubrick’s house, Colin suggested the now famous theme ‘Also sprach Zarathustra’ as well as most of the other music in the film except ‘The Blue Danube Waltz.’”

Cantwell’s work on 2001 led to him being sought by George Lucas for Star Wars, with Cantwell designing many of the starships and vehicles featured in the 1977 blockbuster and beyond: The Death Star, X-Wings, Y-Wings, the Empire’s TIE fighters and an early iteration of what would become the Millennium Falcon; as Screenrant notes, one of Cantwell’s unused designs resurfaced in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story, where it was dubbed “the Cantwell-Class Arrestor Cruiser.”

Before leaving the motion picture business, Cantwell’s other credits included work on Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and WarGames, where Cantwell helped design the screens that represented the film’s War Operation Plan Response (WOPR) computer and the climatic final scene.

Aaron Paul Meet & Greet I Didn’t Miss Anyone, Did I??? Runs Back for Stragglers

5/22/2022 3:44 PM PT

TMZ.com

Aaron Paul isn’t nearly as crochety as his famous onscreen characters often are — in fact, he’s a super nice dude … just ask these people, whom he literally ran back to meet.

The actor was doing a promotional event in Chicago alongside his one-time ‘Breaking Bad’ costar, Bryan Cranston, where they were plugging their new mezcal line, Dos Hombres, and shaking hands with fans who apparently stood in a long line just to get a glimpse.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Check out this video … it shows AP jogging back to say hello to stragglers who missed the window, not being able to see Aaron and Bryan in the flesh before they were whisked away.

The dude didn’t realize they hadn’t gotten to everyone … so, we’re told he hopped out of the SUV that was taking them away, and circled back to make sure everyone was attended to. As you can see, he waved hello to an off-camera crowd, and took selfies with those nearby.

Super sweet moment, and you can tell the people appreciated it.

As for the mezcal … they actually fired it up a couple years back, but are embarking on this “tequila tour” now, post-COVID. Better late than never … that’s what these people are saying!
