Julie Andrews Talks Favorite (And Least-Favorite) Songs From 'So
Julie Andrews celebrated the 50th anniversary of "The Sound Of Music" by chatting with Diane Sawyer during the ABC special, "The Untold Story Of 'The Sound of Music,'" which aired on Wednesday night.

The star loved making the film in 1965, but she wasn't crazy about all the songs she had to sing -- particularly "I Have Confidence."

She explained, "The lyrics were a bit inane. Actually, what I did, because I couldn't make sense of it and I have to have lyrics that make sense, I decided the best way to sing 'I Have Confidence' was to go completely nuts with panic and fear."

Why Did A Major Movie Starring Jennifer Lawrence And Bradley Coo
"Serena" stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence as a couple undergoing hardship during the Great Depression. It was released this weekend.

Also, no one cared.

"Serena" was not a small film by any means- it cost roughly $30 million to make- and yet the film was shoved into the VOD ("Video on Demand," aka direct-to-video) and forgotten about almost before it was released.

"American Sniper" is based on the book by Navy SE...
