Fugger: Sharon Stone

Casual Fuggerday: Sharon Stone

In which we learn that Sharon Stone wears a gold lamé jacket to the airport:

I’m not kidding when I say that this information actually makes me feel better about humanity and the world in general.

Well Played, Amanda Seyfried plus Sharon Stone

Can we all just take a moment and reflect on how much more jam-packed with crazy these Lovelace events would have been if Lohan hadn’t been fired? This is really better for ALL OF US. Including Lindsay.

Mostly Well Played: The Lovelace Premiere and Photocall: Sharon Stone and Amanda Seyfried

I read in this month’s Elle that Sharon Stone was really helpful and great to Amanda Seyfried as they filmed Lovelace — Sharon plays her mother, and apparently is great in the movie (which makes me happy, because of course I love Sharon. I might have been the only person alive who LIVED FOR HER on Law & Order). And you can tell from their body language in these photos that Sharon is obviously really protective of her younger co-star. I love the idea of Sharon Stone taking starlets under her wing, because say what you will about her, she has been through the slings and arrows of Hollywood and she is tough. I mean, she survived an aneurism and her husband got bit by a dragon. She never seems to me to be someone who would take any BS. I kind of want her to be my mentor, even if I think she is also kind of a crackpot. Oh, Lindsay. If you’d played your cards right, this could have happened for real.

It probably worked out for the best this way, though.


Theatrically Played, Sharon Stone

You have to love this woman’s adherence to a theme. If it calls for glamour she brings glamour. If it calls for sensible polo-wear, she goes full-on British Boarding School Headmistress.

But seriously, every time I see the ladies at these things tottering around in the thinnest of stiletto heels, I think, “Those are going to have mud ALL OVER THEM because of how often they sink into the grass.” So as much as I would’ve loved her swanning into this in a bejewelled ball gown, all SHARON STONE’d up to the all-caps nines, this is actually… practical. Maybe even admirably so. Who knew?

Cannes: The Lightbox Purge

Cannes is STILL GOING ON, and it doesn’t end until Sunday, so before the big closing weekend it’s time for a quick sweep of the things that slipped through the cracks. First up: Nicole Kidman wearing the Valentino that Anne Hathaway rejected for the Oscars for reasons of ridiculousness (edit: Valentino says it’s not the same, but what’s funny is that it looks more like Seyfried’s dress to me than the actual rejected one). You can bleach your hair, Anne, but you can’t bleach your regrets (edit: I still stand by this).

Cannes Fugs and Fabs: The amfAR Gala

I was all het up about Cannes juror Nicole Kidman not being at this (or at that may other things), but it turns out she was, and just may not have done the red carpet. I’ve decided this is because she’s been holed up all day in a darkened room watching every Cannes movie and flossing popcorn out of her teeth.
