As 18.5 million viewers tuned in to watch The Sound of Music Thursday, a handful of funny celebrities chimed in via Twitter on everything from Carrie Underwood's real favorite things to how the NBC program has inspired new projects. Our favorite tweet might just come from Mindy Kaling, who fancies herself the next Audrey Hepburn. In other hilarious celebrity tweets, Lena Dunham inadvertently approached a couple with a naughty proposal and Anna Kendrick showed us why she should start writing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fan fiction. Check out all that and more in our favorite funny tweets from the week! Mindy Kaling and Rainn Wilson are determined to follow in Carrie Underwood's footsteps. “@rainnwilson: .@NBC Hey, I'm up for doing Pippen!” I told you, we're doing My Fair Lady.

Two years ago, Bill Maher suggested on an episode of Real Time that TV would soon become one long show called CSI: Vampire Idol. Well, NBC's live production of The Sound of Music last night wasn't far off. They took one of the greatest musicals in Broadway history and paired it with two people who have benefited the most from the vampire and singing-contest crazes of late: American Idol Season Four winner Carrie Underwood (as Maria) and True Blood star Stephen Moyer (as Capt. Von Trapp). The three-hour event »

Who doesn’t love a juicy biopic? It’s delicious getting a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of luminaries — but only when the casting works. The actor doesn’t even have to look exactly like the icon being portrayed, as long as the performance is genius, we’re all in (hello, Ali and Mommie Dearest). But more often than not, biopic casting goes way off the rails. Lindsay Lohan and her plumped-up lips as Elizabeth Taylor? Travesty! Teenybopper-voiced Jennifer Love Hewitt as the luminous Audrey Hepburn? Unfathomable. Colin Farrell mincing about in blonde highlights as Alexander the Great? We’re giggling just thinking about it.
As we head to the theaters to see Idris Elba in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, and eagerly anticipate the biopics of Jimi Hendrix and Elton John, let’s take a look at some of the ones that didn’t hit the mark. »

We're not sure where the disconnect happened here… Julianna Margulies got dressed in her sophisticated Pamella Roland dress, had her hair styled in a low chignon, and then had her makeup artist apply blue, gold and silver eye shadow? What did we miss?? Not only is the eye makeup totally wrong for her outfit and hair, but it's just plain wrong... The harsh liquid eyeliner paired with the rainbow of eye shadow colors equals one hot mess. We just can't understand why the star of The Good Wife didn't embrace her Audrey Hepburn-esque hair and dress, and rock a retro winged eye and fire engine red lip. Perhaps she lost a bet? Beauty Bailout: We wouldn't touch the hair. It's »

Historically, the British musical has been intertwined with British music, drawing on music hall in the 1940s and the pop charts in the 50s – low-budget films of provincial interest and nothing to trouble the bosses at MGM. In the late 60s, however, the genre enjoyed a brief, high-profile heyday, and between Tommy Steele in Half a Sixpence (1967) and Richard Attenborough's star-studded Oh! What A Lovely War (1969) came the biggest of them all: Oliver! (1968), Carol Reed's adaptation of Lionel Bart's 1960 stage hit and the recipient of six Academy awards. »
Washington, Dec. 3: George Clooney has revealed that he is yet to meet the greatest love of his life.

Los Angeles, Dec 3: Actor George Clooney says he hasn't yet met his greatest love in real life.
The 52-year-old ended his two-year relationship with actress Stacy Keibler earlier this year.
Asked if he has met "the one" for him, Clooney said: "I haven't met her yet".
However, he does remember about the love of his life when he was young, reports people.com. "When I was a kid, I was in love with Audrey Hepburn," said Clooney.

In the special-effects-heavy Gravity, most his scenes were shot solo, which George Clooney says suited him just fine. "I actually like working by myself," he says with a laugh. But what about off-screen? Who is there to keep him warm? And, on that subject, the often-reticent star is more forthcoming, but only slightly. When it comes to the greatest love of his life, "I haven't met her yet," Clooney, 52, matter-of-factly tells W magazine for its 8th annual Art Issue, on sale as of Dec. 2 (for the cover the Dream Man looks like an Op Art Nightmare in polka dots painted »

George Clooney is the camouflaged cover star for W magazine's art issue. He worked with five different female artists for the publication, and when he wasn't sitting in a spotted Armani suit, he chatted with Lynn Hirschberg about his personal life. George, who split with his latest long-term girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, earlier this year, admitted this about the great love of his life: "I haven't met her yet." In a departure from his usual leading ladies, George revealed that as a kid, he "was in love with Audrey Hepburn" and "thought she was as elegant as anything I'd ever seen. And I fell madly in love with her. I also always loved Grace Kelly. I mean, when she comes out of the water in To Catch a Thief, I thought, 'That's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.'" George also opened up to artist Tracey Emin, sharing his definition »

News of the Napoleon miniseries first emerged in March ahead of Spielberg's tenure as president of the jury for this year's Cannes film festival. The Hollywood icon told Canal Plus he was "developing a Stanley Kubrick screenplay for a miniseries – not for a motion picture – about the life of Napoleon," in conjunction with the late director's family.

A Conversation with Edith Head will be held at The Sheldon Ballroom in St. Louis on December 6th and 7th
All About Eve, Roman Holiday, The Ten Commandments, A Place In The Sun, The Sting. These great films and hundreds more have one thing in common: costume designer Edith Head (1897–1981). The small woman with the familiar straight bangs, black-rimmed saucer glasses, and unsmiling countenance racked up an unprecedented 35 Oscar nods and 400 film credits over the course of a sixty-year career. The golden age of Hollywood sparkled with extravagant cinematic productions and stars such as Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Natalie Wood, Mae West, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Barbara Stanwyck, and Robert Redford were made even more glamorous by donning the costumes designed by incredibly talented Ms Head.
Theater director Susan Claassen, a New Jersey native got the idea for a project based on Edith Head several years ago after »

She won Oscars for her Scarlett O'Hara and Blanche DuBois, yet Vivien Leigh – born 100 years ago this month – was always subject to Hollywood's impossible demands on its female stars
Every great Hollywood star is both an actor and the embodiment of a myth. Film transforms them, turning their selves, their presence, their talents, into an individual archetypal narrative, one seen both in their movies but also in the public knowledge of their private lives: wounded Monroe; malleable Audrey Hepburn; James Stewart, the irascible, increasingly neurotic all-American guy. Vivien Leigh is one of Britain's few genuine women "movie stars"; her myth is memorable and dark, her life a rise and fall story, centred on the consequences of what was then called her "manic depression" – around her vulnerability, her promiscuity, her ageing. Her films themselves similarly want to tell us stories about suffering and resilience, about surviving and about being punished for doing so. »

Costume designers often say that to copy a character's look, all fans need to do is buy vintage, rip off sleeves and dye fabrics.
Maybe if you have a degree from Parsons or the Fashion Institute of Technology, those instructions make sense. And maybe looks can be created cheaper and easier.
Sometimes, however, the joy in a character is that it can't be copied easily.
"People keep wanting us to do looks for less," says costume designer Lyn Paolo tells Zap2it. "I think it is unfair to our gladiator. Olivia Pope is Olivia Pope."
Paolo had a vision for Pope before she knew Washington was cast.
"I talked about the essence of femininity," Paolo says of meeting with show creator Shonda Rhimes. "And I didn't want to do another woman in a gray suit or a boring suit, and I »
Snow White and the Huntsman director on board life story of French leader that defeated Kubrick
• Reel history: Waterloo
Sanders, a former commercials director who made his big screen debut with the Kristen Stewart fantasy blockbuster, will work from a screenplay by Jeremy Doner of the Us version of TV crime drama The Killing. While little is known about the storyline, the film will reportedly take a "Scarface" approach to the French revolutionary leader.
Napoleon has been depicted dozens of times on the big screen and was also the subject of a famously unfilmed Stanley Kubrick project in the 1970s. Steven Spielberg revealed in March that he has begun work on a TV series »

In an interview with NPR, creator Shonda Rhimes says she doesn’t expect Scandal to have a long run like Grey’s Anatomy since she has an end in mind for Scandal. “I feel like there is a finite amount of Scandal to be told … I can see where the end point is. And I don’t think I’m going to change that.”

If Audrey Hepburn was alive today she'd be wearing the exact outfit Charlize Theron is sporting. That's just how perfectly classic this sweater and pants combo looks. We're not surprised that the equally talented actress is pulling off Audrey's chic meets gamine style, with a twist. She frequently finds a way to make simple separates look red carpet ready. This time the Young Adult star had an even trickier task—keeping winter wear looking hot. The centerpiece of this effortless ensemble is that gorgeous rolled neck sweater. Somehow it's warm and bulky without making Charlize look like she's swimming in a sea of knits. What takes it from cozy to current are the leather pants. The sweater »
