GRAY IN L.A.: UNITED HAIRLINES -- Too Old For Long Hair?
Huffington Post - 9 months
GRAY IN L.A. "Your hair is really -- pause - long, don't you think?" said a girlfriend the other day while gliding her fingers demonstratively through her own neat and practical chin-length bob. "Too long!" was what she really meant, with that little addendum "for your age" in mind that follows a woman over 50 around like a homeless puppy. But since she knows me well and wants to live, she cleverly skipped it. But there it was: The warning. The limitation. The control. Brought to us by UNITED HAIRLINES, that secret organization of ruthless hair-tamers whose strict rules will not allow any hair frivolity on older women, like hair that moves and actually looks alive. What nerve some of us still have! What's next? A mind of one's own? Boundless confidence and drop-dead style? I have long gray hair and I love it because it looks good, is well-tended and easily manageable. The length is perfect for all kinds of hairstyles, like ponytails, fancy upsweeps, even braids. I'm lucky, ...

What's the First Thing Actress Olga Fonda Does When She Arrives On Set of TNT's Agent X?
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Olga Fonda stars as 'Olga Petrovka,' a mysterious and fearless Russian spy on TNT's Agent X.Olga's Twitter, Olga's Instagram: @OlgaFonda Photo by Dorit Thies. You know how we tend to follow actors we enjoy? That's what happened with Olga Fonda. You'll recognize her as Nadia, daughter of Katherine (played by Nina Dobrev), in The Vampire Diaries. Olga was just so damn good. It's no wonder TNT scooped her up! What was a typical day like on the set of Agent X? The first thing I did on set was eat! One of my favorite things about shooting this show was the BREAKFAST!!! We had the best catering in town. The breakfast was so good that it really helped jumpstart my day. Most of the episodes were filmed at Fox studios. We shot a few scenes around Los Angeles. When we shot on location, the schedule would be all over the place. I often found myself driving on an empty freeway because everyone was still asleep! The Agent X set was never boring. During the first few days, I had to ...

12 Times That Oscar Got Best Actress Wrong
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Sometimes the Academy Awards get it right. And sometimes the Oscar goes to actors for the wrong reason -- especially in the leading role categories. Let's face it, in its 88 years, there are instances where actors were awarded Oscars not because they were truly the category's strongest, but because they were the most popular, the most sentimental, played the studio politics game with the most savvy, played the most likable character, the actor whose character dies from the most horrible disease, etc. All wrong reasons. I have always loved the Academy Awards' Best Actress category, and this year's crop features the five strongest in years: Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling, Saoirse Ronan -- all worthy. I sincerely hope that the "best" performance wins, and I urge everyone to see all five before weighing in. If I could rewrite Best Actress history, I would tweak some of its more frustrating choices. So in chronological order, I'm calling out twelve ins ...

Hilary Duff’s ‘Pimp Suit’ Proves Lizzie McGuire Is Over
Huffington Post - about 1 year
So long Lizzie McGuire, hello white-hot "pimp suit." Hilary Duff stepped out in an outfit from Cookie Lyon's closet for an appearance on the "Today" show in New York City on Monday.  Can't you see her busting into a board room yelling, "I own 51 percent of this company!" The former Disney star paired a chic white blazer and matching flowing pants with a low-cut floral top that showed some serious skin. Lizzie McGuire would NEVER.  Her hair was slicked back à la Sharon Stone from "Basic Instinct," but Duff instead likened herself to another kind of boss.  "Casual Pimp suit this morning for @todayshow," she captioned a mirror selfie showing off the look in all its glory.  Casual Pimp suit this morning for @todayshow @anitapatrickson @adambreuchaud @ryancottonhair thanks for the pretty up ✌ ️ A photo posted by Hilary Duff (@hilaryduff) on Jan 12, 2016 at 5:10am PST Duff has been busy promoting TV Land's "Yo ...

    More Details Hide Details Dior China had originally posted an apology in Stone's name, but Stone later denied making the apology during an interview with The New York Times, saying "I'm not going to apologize. I'm certainly not going to apologize for something that isn't real and true – not for face creams," although she did admit that she had "sounded like an idiot." However, after the interview, Stone released a statement entitled "In my own words by Sharon Stone" in which she said "I could not be more regretful of that mistake. It was unintentional.

That same year, she appeared in the last episode of the Turkish TV series Kurtlar Vadisi (Valley of the Wolves) along with Andy Garcia. On January 5, 2010, Entertainment Weekly reported Stone's impending appearance in four episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in April, and then included in a review on the 29th of that April such descriptions of Stone's performance as a "great presence", and having "had to revive her best... tone to sell hokey lines" in a series it described as "mawkish and overwrought." Stone portrayed Jo Marlowe, a former cop turned prosecutor. Stone plays a dermatologist seeking a ménage à trois in the Woody Allen-John Turturro film Fading Gigolo, which premiered in September 2013.
    She appeared in the 2006 drama film Alpha Dog opposite Bruce Willis, playing Olivia Mazursky, the mother of a real-life murder victim.
    More Details Hide Details Stone wore a fatsuit for the role. In February 2007, Stone found her role as a clinically depressed woman in her latest film, When a Man Falls in the Forest, uplifting, as it challenged what she called "Prozac society." "It was a watershed experience," she said. "I think that we live in a... Prozac society where we're always told we're supposed to have this kind of equilibrium of emotion. We have all these assignments about how we're supposed to feel about something."
  • 2005
    Age 46
    In 2005, she was named Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters in France.
    More Details Hide Details Stone was born in Meadville, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Dorothy Marie (née Lawson; b. 1933), an accountant, and Joseph William Stone II (1930 - 2009), a tool and die manufacturer and factory worker.

She has some Irish ancestry.
  • 2004
    Age 45
    The divorce became final in 2004, with a judge ruling that Roan should remain primarily with Bronstein, with Stone receiving visitation rights.
    More Details Hide Details Stone adopted her second son, Laird Vonne, in 2005, and her third son, Quinn Kelly Stone, in 2006. In 2005, when asked during a television interview for her film Basic Instinct 2 about "life imitating art" (referring to her character's bisexuality), Stone said, "Why not? Middle age is an open-minded period".
  • 2003
    Age 44
    Also in 2003, she appeared in a James Woods-directed American Stroke Association television commercial to raise awareness of the symptoms of stroke.
    More Details Hide Details This commercial was also shown in Canada courtesy of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. Stone attempted a return to the mainstream with roles in the films Cold Creek Manor (2003) with Dennis Quaid, and Catwoman (2004) with Halle Berry; however, both films were critical and commercial flops. After years of litigation, Basic Instinct 2 was released on March 31, 2006. A reason for a long delay in releasing the film was reportedly Stone's dispute with the filmmakers over the nudity in the film; she wanted more, while they wanted less. A group sex scene was cut in order to achieve an R rating from the MPAA for the U.S. release; the controversial scene remained in the UK version of the London-based film. Stone told an interviewer, "We are in a time of odd repression and if a popcorn movie allows us to create a platform for discussion, wouldn't that be great?" Despite an estimated budget of $70 million, it placed only 10th in gross on its debut weekend with a meager $3,200,000, and was subsequently declared a bomb. It ultimately ran in theaters for only 17 days and finished with a total domestic gross of under $6 million. Despite the failure of Basic Instinct 2, Stone has said that she would love to direct and act in a third Basic Instinct film.
    In 2003, she appeared in three episodes from the eighth season of The Practice.
    More Details Hide Details For her performances, she received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.
  • 2001
    Age 42
    Stone was hospitalized on September 29, 2001 for a subarachnoid hemorrhage, which was diagnosed as a vertebral artery dissection rather than the more common ruptured aneurysm, and treated with an endovascular coil embolization.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2001, Stone was linked to a biopic of the German film director Leni Riefenstahl.
    More Details Hide Details Prospective director, Paul Verhoeven, and Riefenstahl herself, favored Stone to portray Riefenstahl in the film. Verhoeven, with whom Stone had worked previously, pulled out of the project, reportedly because he wanted to hire a more expensive screenwriter than the producers did.
  • 2000
    Age 41
    Stone starred opposite Ellen DeGeneres in the 2000 HBO film If These Walls Could Talk 2, in which she played a lesbian trying to start a family.
    More Details Hide Details For her work in 'Walls', she was again recognized by Women in Film, this time with the Lucy Award.

  • 1988
    Age 29
    In 1988, she played Janice Henry for the filming of the miniseries War and Remembrance.
    More Details Hide Details Her appearance in Dutch film director Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi action film Total Recall (1990) with Arnold Schwarzenegger gave Stone's career a boost. To coincide with the film's release, she posed nude for Playboy, showing off the muscles she developed in preparation for the film (she lifted weights and trained a little in taekwondo). In 1999, she was rated among the 25 sexiest stars of the century by Playboy. In another Verhoeven film was the role that made her a star, playing Catherine Tramell, a brilliant, bisexual, alleged serial killer, in Basic Instinct (1992). Several actresses at the time turned down the role, mostly because of the nudity required. In the film's most notorious scene, Tramell is being questioned by the police, and she crosses and uncrosses her legs, exposing her vulva, which is not covered by underwear. According to Stone, she agreed to film the flashing scene with no underwear, and although she and Verhoeven had discussed the scene from the beginning of production, she was unaware just how explicit the infamous shot would be: I knew that we were going to do this leg-crossing thing and I knew that we were going to allude to the concept that I was nude, but I did not think that you would see my vagina in the scene. Later, when I saw it in the screening I was shocked. I think seeing it in a room full of strangers was so disrespectful and so shocking, so I went into the booth and slapped him and left.

    They were married in 1984. In 1986, Greenburg was her line producer on Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold. The couple separated three years later, and their divorce was finalized in 1990.
