'Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the Twittersphere, celebrities were all aflutter with jokes about the upcoming celebration. Ellen DeGeneres brought on the giggles with a jailhouse Christmas tweet, and Chrissy Teigen got in on a comfortable trend just in time for big holiday meals. Meanwhile, Bette Midler's hilarious narcissism made her indifferent to a recent Santa controversy, and Dane Cook kicked off the Christmas blues. Check out all that and more in our favorite funny tweets from the week! What happened to the man who stole the advent calendar? He got 25 days. #ClassicJokeWednesday — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) December 18, 2013 We're guessing Santa skipped his coal delivery. I’m so sick about all this talk about what color Santa is. Who cares what color he is...as long as he knows my sizes. — Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) December 19, 2013 Don't forget to charm him with cookies, Bette. This is the time »

One of the best parts of scrolling through your Twitter feed is getting to see all the hilarious thoughts and quips of your favorite celebrities. From Sarah Silverman's Target struggles to Zooey Deschanel's grudge against nonfat milk, 2013's tweets brought us tons of tears of laughter.

Joe Swanberg had quite a year. In the same summer, he appeared in the horror hit “You’re Next” and saw his most high-profile success in the excellent “Drinking Buddies” with Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, and Anna Kendrick. The year ended with the announcement that his next feature, “Happy Christmas,” starring Kendrick & Lena Dunham, will play in competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
And that’s not even the whole Swanberg story. There’s a whole separate film opening in some markets and premiering on VOD this weekend, written, directed, edited, and shot by Swanberg, called “All the Light in the Sky,” and it’s a surprisingly amiable, enjoyable piece of work. It features minimal dramatic thrust, even for Swanberg, but the cast works and Swanberg finds a gentle, interesting tone in the way he sketches a woman over a seemingly average few days of her life but who may »

Anna Kendrick sang “When I’m Gone” in Universal’s 2012 hit “Pitch Perfect” along to the beat of the cups game, and immediately spawned a legion of internet imitators. But until now, none of them has even come close to breaking a world record doing so. See video: Anna Kendrick Expresses Shock at ‘Cups’ Success Via Instagram Canada’s Collége Saint-Bernard in Drummondville, Quebec, set out to do just that when it enlisted 1,500 teachers and students — from kindergarten through high school — to perform the “Cups” song. The result is not just record breaking but pretty spectacular as well, as the »

Anna Kendrick is impossibly adorable. And Kendrick's song "Cups" (from Pitch Perfect) is remarkably charming. So by proxy, 1,500 Canadians performing "Cups" must be both impossibly adorable and remarkably charming. And it is. Collége Saint-Bernard in Drummondville, Quebec, pulled students from kindergarten through high school and all the staff to create a 1,500-strong "Cups" choir. The performance includes kids "cupping" while underwater, in a gym and on the playground - there's even a group of cheerleaders clapping and stacking. The group set a new world record with the event, which is a) laudable, and b) a wonderfully specific record to set. »

Anna Kendrick saved Christmas in Washington DC last night, when she sang at the TNT celebration while wearing a super sexy champagne-colored velvet gown. We bet that even President Obama couldn’t help but notice!
The “Cups” singer’s cups runeth over last night (ewww, sorry…we had to) in the lowcut number, designed by J. Mendel. The festive event, held at the National Building, was hosted (of course) by Hugh Jackman and featured appearances from Sheryl Crow, Janelle Monae, the Backstreet Boys, Train’s Pat Monahan, and even famed basketballer Charles Barkley.
But it was the 28-year-old actress who stole the show in her glam attire. Was the Potus checking her out? Considering First Lady Michelle (and daughters Sasha and Malia) were present, we’re gonna go with a hearty “Nahhh.” But still, we can’t think of a better way to get into the holiday spirit. »

Anna Kendrick looks like Jessica Rabbit headed to a company Christmas party, and we love it. This slinky J. Mendel look hugs her in all the right places for a classic hour-glass effect. There's no much too the design save for that deep, sweetheart neckline, but given what the cut does to her cleavage, the Pitch Perfect star needs nothing more. The only thing preventing us from sending this straight to the, "gotta' have it!" list is that Christmas-cream color. Does it look a little too close to the singing star's skin tone? We can't tell if that's the lighting on this photo or a real fashion fail, but it does seem to blend in with both the wall behind her and the skin all over her »
The fashionable first lady looked so festive in her holiday dress — and it wasn’t the first time we saw Michelle rock this frock! Do you think it’s cool that she recycled her ensemble? Vote!
Michelle Obama celebrated Christmas in Washington 2013, (which aired on TNT), on Dec. 15 at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC, where she looked so festive in a pretty, white J. Mendel ensemble — and it turns out the look she selected was one that she already had hanging in her closet! She loves recycling!
Michelle looked stunning in her J. Mendel Resort 2013 look, which she first debuted at the pre-Olympics reception prior to the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games in July 2012. While she first wore the outfit in the summer, the embroidery made it seem so festive for the holiday appearance — and it’s also so trendy, »

What's old is new again! Much like Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama isn't afraid to resurface a fabulous ensemble from the past, and she did just that at TNT's Christmas in Washington event over the weekend in a striking J. Mendel outfit. We first spotted Michelle in the festive look at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and immediately recognized it again when she pulled it out again for the holiday event hosted by Anna Kendrick with a performance by Sheryl Crow last night. It goes without saying that the Flotus is certainly fond of the ivory two-piece design featuring a structured short jacket with elegant metallic flocking and pleated full skirt, and even paired the whole ensemble with the »
Anna Kendrick absolutely wow’d at TNT’s Christmas in Washington 2013 on Dec. 15. In a gold velvet gown, the actress looked better than ever — and put on a jaw-dropping performance. What did you think of her glamorous look?
At the National Building Museum, Anna Kendrick wore a floor-length J. Mendel gown and it was absolutely perfect for the holiday season! Filming the TNT Christmas special that will air on Dec. 20, Anna was joined by an incredibly talented group — the event was hosted by Hugh Jackman, and the Backstreet Boys, Janelle Monae and Sheryl Crow performed. Even the Obamas made an appearance!
Anna Kendrick’s TNT Christmas Gown
Anna continually looks amazing on red carpets, so it was no surprise that she wore an absolutely jaw-dropping dress for the holiday special. She wore a perfect-for-the-occasion champagne panne-velvet strapless gown, that was fitted on top and had a draped bodice. It’s »

Hugh Jackman got to work his charm on another charismatic guy - President Barack Obama - when the actor joined the president and his family for a taping of TNT's Christmas in Washington special on Sunday night. Hugh wasn't the only star that was hanging out with the Obamas that night as the Backstreet Boys, Anna Kendrick, Charles Barkley, Janelle Monáe, and Sheryl Crow also dropped by for the night of Christmas cheer and songs. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama got in on the cheer when they handed out treats to a collection of adorable little elves (who were played by young children) while their kids, Sasha and Malia, watched on. While the special won't air until Friday, Dec. 20, Hugh gave a sneak peek of his impressive singing skills when he shared a rehearsal video of himself singing "Gloria in excelsis Deo" with a choir.

If you thought you had email issues, don't even get Ian Somerhalder started! The busy actor asked his Twitter followers for some inbox perspective this past week, showing that he essentially has more unchecked emails than days he's been alive. In other funny tweets this week, Olivia Wilde imagined the worse-case scenario on a recent flight, Anna Kendrick prepared some one-liners for her meeting with Mark Zuckerberg, and Ellen's thermostat is changing with the times. Check out all that and more in our favorite funny tweets from the week! Is this amount of unread emails on my computer insane? Or is it just me...? Thoughts? http://t.co/79ZV2QAOUo — ian somerhalder (@iansomerhalder) December 13, 2013 We're pretty sure it's time for you to get a personal assistant on that. Creepiest part of the in-flight safety video: they smile gleefully and say "your seat is also a floatation device!".. Like it's a fun idea. »

Hollywood might be filled with some of the biggest stars on Earth, but some of those celebrities aren’t so tall in real life. From The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug‘s star, Martin Freeman, to everyone’s favorite reality star, Kim Kardashian (who might not be a hobbit in the negative way South Park pointed out last night–but she is surprisingly short!), it seems like some of the most extraordinary stars are shorter than the average person.
One of the biggest themes of The Hobbit trilogy (and The Lord of The Rings trilogy) is that stature is not a mark of importance. The smallest person can make the biggest difference in the fate of the world–or be the biggest star in Hollywood. As it happens, there are a lot of celebrities who are way shorter than they may appear on screen. Like, it’s »

Women lead movie website popularity chart, outranking top male actors as report highlights Hollywood's gender inequality
• News: Women successful yet sidelined in writing and directing
• Blog: Why are there so few female film-makers?
Jennifer Lawrence and Chloë Grace Moretz have been named by IMDb as the most popular actors in the world, a day after the New York Film Academy published new evidence of widening gender inequality in Hollywood.
Based on page views by the IMDb's 160 million users, Lawrence emerged as the most popular star, thanks largely to her best actress Oscar win in March for Silver Linings Playbook and her leading role in the dystopian blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Sixteen-year-old Moretz has appeared in two big movies this year, the comic-book sequel Kick Ass 2 and the horror remake Carrie.

The line-up of films premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival has been released, and there are a lot of good movies, one of which includes The Raid 2, which I am incredibly excited to see! It's easily my most anticipated film at the festival.
The Sundance Film Festival takes place from January 16th to the 26th in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah. From the press release:
John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “The Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival feature new work from many established independent filmmakers who began their careers at our Festival years ago, which allows us to reflect on the impact, legacy and growth of the independent film movement over the past 30 years.”
Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, said, “In many of the films selected for our 2014 Sundance Film Festival, we see fascinating characters and subjects throughout. »

Remember the genre-bending Ryan Reynolds ('R.I.P.D.') vehicle 'The Voices'? Well the project which is now in post-production has released its first official still revealing star Reynolds alongside his furry chatty friends. The 37-year old actor plays Jerry a schizophrenic factory worker who accidentally kills a co-worker and then begins to heed advice from his talking pets. Thankfully things are made a touch easier for him as not so furry sexy co-stars Gemma Arterton ('Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters') and Anna Kendrick ('Up in the Air') are also on board. 'The Voices' will screen at Sundance as part of the out-of-competition premieres section. Check out the new pic below. »
Today we have the first photo of Ryan Reynolds from his upcoming independent film "The Voices," in which the actor stars opposite a cat and a dog. Check out the photo below. Plot: The story centers around Jerry Hickfang (Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry's evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation. The new movie is directed by Marjane Satrapi (Perseopolis) and co-stars Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver. It's set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month.

We knew Anna Kendrick had it in her. Yes, Up in the Air was all about the business suits, but there were those few scenes in Pitch Perfect where the singing celeb showed off more than a little cleavage. We're thrilled to see that she's taking that on-screen sexy to the red carpet in this Elie Saab stunner, and we're even more delighted to see it done in the color of the season! The beauty of this gorgeous sleeveless column is that the sheer lace panels are super hot, even though there's a nude underlay protecting the Drinking Buddies actress from any wardrobe malfunctions. The position of those peeps keeps the look flirty enough, especially in fire red. Considering the audience was the »
