We doubt Sam Taylor-Johnson will ever work with Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L. James again.

In case you forgot, the British filmmaker helmed the first movie in the film franchise based off of James' best selling romance novel. However, Miz Taylor-Johnson was not brought back to direct Fifty Shades Darker — and there is a reason for that!

Apparently, Sam and E.L. (whose real name is Erika Mitchell (and whose FIRST pen name was Snowqueens Icedragon) butted heads quite a bit while making the flick that launched Dakota Johnson's career. Ooh, go on!

The director dished to The Hollywood Reporter:

Rebel Wilson Says She Developed A Career-Damaging Stress Sore After Tabloid Published True Story Of Her Lying About Age

| Filed under: Legal MattersRebel WilsonHealthDakota Johnson

Rebel Wilson is living up to her (fake) name and isn't going to give in to the tabloids!

As we reported in 2015, Australian publication Women's Day published an article claiming the Pitch Perfect star lies about her background, notably her name and her age.

Days later, documents from the Australian Securities and Investment Commission and the Australian Electoral Roll proved that she lied about her age by 6 years, and that her birth name is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds.

Fast forward to this year, "Fat Amy" sued Bauer Media (the publisher of Women's Day) for defamation… even though she in fact fibbed about her past.

On Wednesday, Wilson took the stand and told the Supreme Court of Victoria that she was so distressed by the articles, she developed a "stress sore" around her mouth. As a result of the blemish, the filmmakers of How to Be Single (her 2016 comedy with Dakota Johnson) were forced to cut her from several scenes.

She claims she also developed eczema, a urinary tract infection, and had to take sleeping pills during this traumatic time.

The Australian actress believes an "obsessed and weirdly jealous" former schoolmate told Women's Day about her fake age in order to make a "quick buck." According to emails read aloud in court, the source did try to make money from the scoop.

Not only did the controversy decrease the amount of roles she was offered, Wilson says the publication strategically released the information to coincide with the release of Pitch Perfect 2.

While we feel horrible for what Rebel had to go through, doesn't it seem like she should've been honest in the first place??

Met Gala Donors Are FURIOUS At Celebs For Smoking In The Museum's Bathrooms

Met Gala patrons upset at stars for smoking.

Of all the places to light up, the Met Gala is not one of them!

The extremely frou-frou affair does not welcome smokers, vapers, and everyone in between into its hallowed halls, and now it's being reported that several museum donors are FURIOUS that some celebs were puffing up a storm in the museum's bathrooms.

One donor told Page Six:

"As a donor to the Met, I was so insulted to see all these ‘celebrities' smoking and taking selfies of themselves in the bathroom. Mostly, it's disrespectful to the art collection which needs to be kept 100 percent smoke-free. I would honestly like to see these people fined by the city."

A board member also expressed outrage when she entered the bathroom Monday to discover stars like Diddy, Paris Jackson, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner goofing around and taking selfies. Apparently some of them were also smoking.

A source said:

"The board member stormed right out and complained right away to Anna Wintour's team. It is so disrespectful to the museum."

Well, one person who was DEFINITELY smoking was Dakota Johnson (above), who was caught lighting up in one of Rita Ora's Snapchats from the night. An unidentified guy behind her can also be seen vaping. Besides them, Rami Malek and Bella Hadid were also spotted puffing, as were Marc Jacobs and Frances Bean Cobain (below):

Tonight, however, Dakota's black ruffled Gucci frock was perfect! She paired it with a simple updo and minimal accessories.

Melanie Griffith is absolutely fearless!

In a new interview with Porter magazine out Friday, the Working Girl star opens up about all those things no one ever talks about — her divorces, her addiction, and most shockingly her plastic surgery.

On the latter, Melanie says she never even knew anyone else could tell — until she started seeing some very harsh headlines that got her rethinking it all.

She admits:

"No, I didn't [realize] until people started saying. ‘Oh my god, what has she done?!' I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this shit that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now."

We think she looks amazing. But "normal" has never been a part of the star's life. The daughter of film legend Tippi Hedren briefly married Miami Vice star Don Johnson at just 18 years old.

Years later, after an addiction problem landed her in rehab, she and Don

He may look tough on the outside, but Charlie Hunnam is still feeling the whiplash of passing on 50 Shades Of Grey.

We'll never forget the uproar caused when the British actor was originally cast in the role of Christian Grey before backing out and being replaced by Jamie Dornan.

The Sons of Anarchy star previously said that he dropped out of the kinky drama due to scheduling conflicts, but now it sounds like there was a bit more to the sticky situation.

In a new interview for Elle's March issue, the 36-year-old admitted he hadn't yet seen the finished movie because casting was a "traumatic experience" for him.

He explained:
