Scoop! Zach: Dude, that’s my new car, Ashton!

Let’s call this, “When ‘Punk’d’ goes wrong.”

“The Last Kiss” star Zach Braff lost his cool and beat up a kid during a taping of Ashton Kutcher’s practical-joke show.

The joke, set up by Braff’s “Scrubs” co-star Donald Faison, had a couple of 12-year-old kids graffiting Braff’s brand-spanking-new Porsche.

“They choreographed the whole thing and I wasn’t supposed to catch the kid, but I caught him and I’m not a big fighter or anything, but, with the adrenaline and everything, I just started pummeling him,” Braff told ContactMusic.com. “It turns out it was fake spray paint. They edited [the fight] out, because apparently you’re not supposed to punch people on ‘Punk’d.’”

He should’ve punched Kutcher. Come on, we all want to.

Once you pop, you can’t stop

Gwen Stefani is all about eating right and working out to shed her pregnancy pounds, but the “Holla Back” girl says she strays from the path sometimes.

“I always try and eat as healthily as possible,” Stefani said, according to Life & Style Extra. “But hey, you know there’s nothing wrong with eating Pringles sometimes, they are so good.”

Stefani, who welcomed baby Kingston with husband Gavin Rossdale earlier this year, unveiled her new L.A.M.B. collection during New York’s Fashion Week on Friday. She told “Extra” that she had an unlikely fashion inspiration for her new designs: “I was thinking about Michelle Pfeiffer in ‘Scarface,’ I just think she was so chic and so beautiful in that whole film.”

Another day, another ER visit for Lindsay

Lindsay Lohan has been rushed to the hospital … again.

It wasn’t for “dehydration” or “exhaustion” this time. Instead, the actress fractured her wrist in two places after slipping and falling at a Fashion Week party in New York.

The “Prairie Home Companion” star, 20, was strutting around in her Chanel boots in an outdoor area at Milk Studios when she made a crash landing.

Lohan’s rep Leslie Sloane Zelnick told “Access Hollywood” that “there’s a pending investigation” because the 20-year-old actress says that Milk Studios didn’t take precautions to cover the slick ground. We think the folks at Milk Studios could submit months of Scoop as evidence that perhaps the slick floor was not the reason Lohan fell.

And just in case you are keeping track, this is hospital visit No. 5 for Lohan in the past year.

A strip to bountiful

Will Ferrell doesn’t want to strip in all his movies, but he does it for a good cause.

Well, not really, but the actor is jokingly trying to convince reporters that every time he takes it off, money goes to starving children.

“I actually have that written into scripts now because it’s tied in with UNICEF. I actually have it put in to my contract,” the “Talladega Nights” star told BANG Showbiz. “Every time I strip down to my underwear, some money goes to the charity so it’s kind of my way of helping, making a contribution. Plus, it brings the ladies in. The ladies love it.”

Not all the ladies, actually. Ferrell says his wife is less than impressed.

“I’ve been doing it for a few years now and she’s very much over it,” Ferrell said. “She’s like, ‘OK, you’re doing the underpants thing again? Can you go and take the trash out when you’re done?’”
