George Clooney, Jon Hamm Read Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live

What do George Clooney, Matt Damon and Jon Hamm all have in common? No, not their status as PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive honorees – it's that Twitter is not their friend.

In his latest installment of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, Jimmy Kimmel gathered Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jennifer Garner, Tom Hanks and other Monuments Men cast members to read messages from their less-than-positive Twitter followings. Insults include calling Clooney a "lumpy faced basterd" and referring to Rob Lowe as "skin cancer." Each star was dealt a blow to their psyche, none more so than Damon, who read a disparaging Tweet from frenemy Kimmel himself.

Benedict Cumberbatch Deduces Math Problem on Sesame Street

Originally posted 02/04/2014 01:00PM

Unfortunately for Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of hit BBC series Sherlock, there's no shortage of foes wanting to test his super sleuthing skills, and that includes the Muppets of Sesame Street.

In a new clip from the children's show, Murray Monster, now known as Murray-arty, puts Cumberbatch on the spot, and asks him to deduce whether there are more apples or oranges. Much like his onscreen counterpart, the Brit turns to a good friend for help – no, not Dr. Watson – the Count.

Benedict Cumberbatch Forgoes Pants for Award Acceptance

Benedict Cumberbatch proves there's an upside to accepting an award via satellite – wearing what you want from the waist down!

The British actor, 37, won the U.K. National Television Award for best TV detective for his portrayal of a brilliant and lovably-sociopathic Sherlock Holmes in the hit BBC television series Sherlock on Thursday, but accepted his award from Los Angeles.

"Hello from LA … I'm over the moon. I can't tell you what this means," he said. "This is a vote by the public and you are the people that have made this the success of what it is. It's a real, real, real thrill and I wish I was there to pick up the award in person."

Nominees Share 'How I Got My SAG Card'

Originally posted 01/18/2014 08:20PM

The Screen Actors Guild Awards is the one awards show where fellow actors get to decide the best performances.

To land a coveted spot on the 4,400 member voting panel, you need to be a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.

It may sound intimidating, but a SAG card can be earned through smaller roles on TV, film or radio. This means the evening's biggest stars, the SAG nominees, earned access to the guild through some surprising parts.

Wrath of R. Kelly: Watch Singer Get Revenge on Benedict Cumberbatch

Originally posted 12/13/2013 08:15AM

All is fair in love and Black Panties promotion. After Benedict Cumberbatch wooed the world with his seductive reading of R. Kelly's new song "Genius," the singer is back with his own viral moment.

R. Kelly went on Big Morning Buzz with Carrie Keagan to get revenge on the British actor. The crooner's weapon of choice was the line "John Harrison was a smokescreen to conceal my true identity; my name is Khan," from Cumberbatch's recent film Star Trek Into Darkness.

Let Benedict Cumberbatch Make Love to You Through an R. Kelly Song

Originally posted 12/05/2013 03:00PM

One of the things that people notice about Benedict Cumberbatch is his velvety baritone.

And R. Kelly is, of course, known for his ... uh, "florid" lyrics.

So naturally, when Jimmy Kimmel decided to combine those two, he struck gold.

Imagine Eddard Stark as the put-upon manager of a failing medieval-themed amusement park.

That's the premise behind the latest video from the gang at Bad Lip Reading (who've offered up such gems in the past as the fish-slapping Edward in a dubbed-over version of Twilight). They've taken their questionable lip-reading skills to Westeros, for a video that takes top honors as the best clip of the week.
