December 15th 2004 Sharon Stone sues surgeon 'who said he gave her facelift'

Actress Sharon Stone claims a Beverly Hills doctor slandered and libeled her by allegedly telling magazines that he performed cosmetic surgery on her famous face. The lawsuit cites articles in Us Weekly and In Touch magazines that raise the question of whether Stone had a face-lift and suggest it was done by plastic surgeon Dr. Renato Calabria.
The "Basic Instinct" star maintains that such allegations damaged her reputation and hurt her ability to find work. She seeks unspecified damages in the lawsuit, filed Monday in Superior Court. Arturi Barens, a lawyer for Calabria, called the lawsuit "not well thought out," and said, "Dr. Calabria has never told anyone that he has (performed) surgery on Sharon Stone."

Stone alleges it was Calabria or his associates who contacted the magazines and that such statements tended to expose her "to shame and ridicule."

Monday July 26th 2004 Sharon Stone loves metrosexuals

Movie star Saron Stone loves metrosexual men because they're so confident when they ask her out. The Basic Instinct star accepts she's intimidating to most men, but she thinks modern guys actually appreciate the fact she's a tough date.

She says, "They're really confident. I have to hand it to them. In the old days, when we were young and dating, they'd shuffle around and look at the floor.

"I used to say, 'For God's sake, just ask me out. I gotta go.'"

But Stone likes to be asked out because she doesn't trust herself to pick metrosexual men from gay men. She says, "It's a little tough for me because I sort of like effeminate men. I like men who are not so brutish. I like guys that are kind of gentle: 'Let's go painting, let's read poetry...'
"I think I'm metrosexual... but I think between the sheets I'm really all girl."

Monday July 26th 2004 David Morrissey is to star in Basic Instinct 2

British actor David Morrissey is to star opposite Sharon Stone in the sequel to Basic Instinct. The 40-year-old is the surprise choice for leading man in the Hollywood blockbuster. Morrissey is best known for gritty political dramas The Deal, in which he played Chancellor Gordon Brown, State Of Play and the recent TV series Blackpool.
Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction comes 13 years after the original, and its making has been held up for years by legal wrangles. "We want to answer all those unanswered questions from the first one," Stone said recently. "The producers are putting the film together. It's a terrific script." The 46-year-old reprises her role as icepick-wielding bisexual killer Catherine Tramell.

The film moves the action from San Francisco to London where Tramell again finds herself in trouble with the law. Morrissey plays Dr Andrew Glass, a criminal psychiatrist who is appointed by Scotland Yard to evaluate her and soon falls under her spell. Filming begins in the UK in March, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Thursday July 15th 2004 Looking for an old-fashioned man

Hollywood actress SHARON STONE is on the lookout for an old-fashioned man who is willing to pay for everything on dates.
The BASIC INSTINCT beauty, who recently divorced her third husband PHIL BRONSTEIN, is currently dating and is keeping her eye open for the perfect gentleman. She says, "I like guys that are kind and funny and I like old-fashioned guys with good manners. I like that they stand up when you come in, they open the door. I like when they pay!"
Stone also admits a man's vehicle is very important. She adds, "I am that shallow. But it doesn't have to be, like, the fancy car. I could go out with a guy because he had an EL CAMINO. When I was young, my dad wouldn't let me go out with guys who had vans."
But Stone admits her men must have one or two imperfections. She explains, "I like 'em when they're bad at the right times! I'm not into the big muscle thing too much. "The older you get the better it gets."

Friday May 28th 2004 Brain medicine keeps Sharon trim

Sharon Stone has discovered a big plus to her 2001 brain aneurysm: she never gains weight.

She says, "I take some stuff, some medicine, that I got after the brain thing that makes me thin. "When I was sick I lost a lot of my body mass and I never gained it back. In like 11 days I lost something like 18 per cent of my body mass and you just shift. I went in there my regular size - I was between an eight and a 10, and when I'd go on the movies... I'd be a six. When I went into hospital, I was like an eight-10, and, when I walked out of the hospital, I was a four. Now I'm like a six."

Sharon Stone believes she has been "blessed" following her brain haemorrhage two years ago (in 2002).

Now 45, she has gained a new perspective on life as a result of her near-death experience. Glamourous Stone says, "I asked the doctor if I was going to die and he didn't answer.
"I started praying for my son and then it happened... I don't know how long I was in that experience. It's not exactly like seeing a light as much as a feeling of being drawn to it. I came back from the abyss and I survived."

The experience has given the Basic Instinct actress a different outlook on life.
