At 90, director Billy Wilder is still looking at scripts. He's just stopped celebrating his birthday.

Wilder, director and co-writer of such classics as "The Lost Weekend," "Some Like It Hot," "Sunset Boulevard" and "The Apartment," turned 90 Saturday."There was no party, no naked girls jumping out of cakes," he said.

Wilder says he spends his days "writing a little, reading a lot and watching the news, like everyone else."

He admitted he was "fooling around with a couple of ideas" for movie scripts.
