Sharon Stone on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'Sharon Stone's notorious leg-crossing interrogation scene in 'Basic Instinct' was just voted the most paused moment in film history.

Stone was on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (Weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN) and Morgan asked Stone if it's true that she smacked 'Basic Instinct' director Paul Verhoeven the first time she saw the just-honored scene.

"He had told me -- when we shot the scene -- that the light was reflecting off of my underwear and that he could see that I had underwear on," Stone explained. "And that if I took off my underwear there would be a shadow, and we wouldn't see my pubic hair."

What to Watch: April 26 - May 2

Law & Order: SVU -
Tuesday April 27, 10 pm, CTV/NBC

NBC must have heard I was complaining about the 'Law & Order' franchise and decided they had to surprise me with a wicked little treat. So they hired Sharon Stone for a guest role as Stabler's ex-partner, now an ADA named Jo Malone. Sharon sticks around for four episodes and I do sincerely hope the writers make full use of her ability to play smart snarky women you don't necessarily like, but respect.

Sharon Stone to guest on Law and Order SVU

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 5th 2010 10:02PM
sharon_stone_earringsRemember how Sharon Stone first made her claim to fame? No, I don't mean her imitating Cybill Shepherd in the comedy Irreconcilable Differences with Ryan O'Neal, Shelley Long and Drew Barrymore. I'm talking about Basic Instinct, of course. As Catherine Trammell, she had perhaps the most famous crossed-knee move ever in the movies.

Well, now the star will be returning to the crime genre. Sharon will be appearing on NBC's Law and Order SVU later this season.

Stone will be appearing in a four-show arc, playing a former cop who's become a prosecutor, an assistant district attorney. That means instead of answering questions, she'll be asking them.

Though better known for her work on the big screen, Stone has played a number of key roles on television, including guest spots on 'Will & Grace' and 'The Practice,' the latter for which she won an Emmy (is another trophy on her way, we wonder?)

Hot On Inside Movies: Kate Hudson Can Sing; Sharon Stone Bares All

by Betsey Denberg, posted Nov 18th 2009 7:00PM
Kate Hudson NineThis week in Hollywood, it's been all about 'New Moon'. But don't worry non-Twihards, our friends over at Inside Movies have been working hard on getting you some great stories!

- In 'Almost Famous' she hung out backstage; In the film 'Nine', Kate Hudson steps out into the spotlight, proving she's got a few musical tricks up her sleeve.

- Last week Congress passed the health reform bill, so maybe now they can relax and catch a movie. Here's a list of suggestions for them.

- Is there a such thing as being too old to be topless on a magazine cover? Sharon Stone doesn't think so.

- Shawn Andrews ... Who's that? 16 years ago he made us laugh in 'Dazed and Confused.' Now, he's back and starring in the bold and edgy film 'Fix'.

- Peter Jackson took a little break from his typical gory style. But his new film 'The Lovely Bones' encouraged him to take the violence up a notch.

- In an effort to promote '2012,' Columbia Pictures launched a fictional website. Do you believe all the hype on viral marketing for movies?

Huff: Sweet Release

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Apr 16th 2006 11:07PM

Huff; Showtime; Hank Azaria(S02E04) I feel like I went into this episode with an unfair advantage. I got to screen it early and speak to creator Bob Lowry about it. Now that I've watched it a second time, so many things stood out. You want to talk about a show with multiple levels ... it's like a 50-story apartment building. Wow, I can't believe I just wrote that - worst analogy ever. But you get what I'm saying? Yes? Good. Moving on.

The episode started with a bang. Dauri is still a patient of Huff and as one would expect Russell is covering the cost of the sessions. But that's what Russell does. He throws money around without bothering to try and have a real relationship with anyone. With all the problems Russell has, it's hard to believe he hasn't figured out one of life's simple truths. Money doesn't fix everything but I think Kelly is going to teach Russell a few things in that department. But his connection with Dauri makes a startling leap forward which I'll address later.

Only three episodes into the new season and Huff creator/executive producer Bob Lowry is already back for more. After speaking with Ryan last week, I had the opportunity to pick Bob's brain a second time. We chatted about this Sunday's new episode ("Sweet Release") as well as some other things to expect before season two comes to a close. A heads-up to our readers though: the interview contains a few spoilers, fair warning. However, there is one thing that all Huff fans should be excited to know. Bob let me in on a little secret. They'll know on May 2 if the show is going to come back for a third season, so everyone keep your fingers crossed.

OK, let's get to it. Here's what went down between myself and Bob Lowry on Wednesday morning:

Jonathan Toomey: Bob Lowry! Good sir, how are you?

Bob Lowry: My new best friend! Thanks for calling.

The Daily ShowBelieve it or not, good news has arrived from the Middle East: Abdul Rahman, an Afghan man risking the death penalty to convert to Christianity, has found safety in Italy and American journalist Jill Carrol has been released. Hurrah! So, "for every person killed just because of their religion or for being an American, there is another person almost killed but... then at the last minute... not."
