Sorry, Hollywood screenwriters. Sometimes the best lines in films AREN’T the ones you wrote down in the script!

In fact, some of the most famous scenes in movies are completely improvised on the set! An actor will do or say something that just feels right and…

Ta da!

Cinema magic!

Like Heath Ledger in his posthumous Oscar-winning role as The Joker in The Dark Knight. No one instructed Heath to applaud like he did while Commissioner Gordon’s promotion was announced at Gotham’s Police Headquarters. But Heath gave director Christopher Nolan a take with a slow clap that was just too good (and evil) not to use!

Want to see which other scenes were unplanned but went on to become onscreen classics?

Another fab ensem from this starlet!

Emma Stone looked lovely in France at the screening of her new film, Magic in The Moonlight, directed by Woody Allen.

She'll always be one of our fave red carpet darlings!

woody allen racismWoody Allen just opened himself up to even more criticism!

Besides accusations against the acclaimed actor for molesting his daughter, Woody is now being accused of being discriminatory in his casting.

Many have noticed that Woody rarely casts African Americans in his movies, but he was still "horrified" when he was asked about it.

Woody responded:

Call The Cops! Emma Stone Seen Smiling Without Andrew Garfield Anywhere In Sight Is A Crime!

| Filed under: Film FlickersJoaquin PhoenixEmma StoneWoody Allen

Emma Stone is smiling, but Andrew Garfield is nowhere to be seen. In fact, her joy and enthusiasm are aimed at Joaquin Phoenix.

We don't know how to feel about this.

It's all because the two are on the set of their new Woody Allen pic, but still, it's practically unnatural to see Emma happy without Andrew there to be providing said happiness.

Anyway, the movie is filming in Providence, Rhode Island, and… that's pretty much as much as we've got. Seriously, we don't even know the name yet.

Aside from this still of Emma and Joaquin enjoying each other's company, the only other thing we know is that Parker Posey has apparently just joined the cast.

Hopefully we'll find out some more about it now that we're getting closer to the premiere of Woody's Magic in the Moonlight.

There are a lot of famous guys in Hollywood who are known for being a bit vertically challenged.

Ryan Seacrest gets shat on for being short sometimes.

Tom Cruise has been called small in the past.

And Robin Williams is far from being described as tall.

But even those guys are too sizable to wind up on our shortest guys in the biz list!

Hell, even Martin Short is 5’7” and he’s got the word short in his name!

So who are the truly tiny men that make up our roster of favorite famous shorties?

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesTony AwardsWoody Allen

The Tony Awards were home to some fantastic suits this year!

But the tuxes hardly compare to the pinstriped gangster looks of the boys from Bullets Over Broadway- especially as they spin and tumble across the stage!

It may be based on a Woody Allen movie, but it looks more like a descendant of Guys And Dolls!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the amazing performance of 'TAin't Nobody's Business!

Perez Reviews: Bullets Over Broadway

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesZach BraffPerez ReviewsWoody Allen

Bullets Over Broadway is a fine show. Unfortunately, fine isn't good enough for a Tony nomination for Best Musical nor is it likely to help sustain a long run.

The new stage adaptation of Woody Allen's film is firing blanks.

The show was poised to be a big smash of the current season, with an all-star cast lead by Zach Braff and spearheaded by an all-star director, Susan Stroman.

While Stroman's last Broadway musical, Big Fish, was spectacular and filled with wonder, awe, imagination and playfulness - Bullets Over Broadway is "by the book".

Harmless. Inoffensive. Not a bad time. But not a great time.

It's all been done before. Mobsters. Self-reflection. Etc. Etc.

A lot of the blame lies on the material. The songs chosen are little-known jazz standards from the early 20th century. If they're "little-known", that should tell you something about the quality of the tunes!

The show's other big weakness is that not every movie works on the stage. Allen's characters from the film don't hold up well when having the spotlight on them and amplified on Broadway.

They aren't characters as much as they are caricatures.

There's Braff doing Woody. There's a girl doing a Cyndi Lauper impression. There's all these fine actors giving fine performances, but it's hard to relate to any of them because these characters are drawn so superficially.

There are, however, two standout performances.

Once again, Betsy Wolfe proves she is one of the top leading ladies on Broadway! Not only does she have one of the best voices, but she is also such a superb actress! She infuses the show with so much heart and humanity, something it's sorely lacking.

And the other standout Nick Cordero, who turns his one-dimensional role into a fully-fleshed and fantastic portrayal!
