Sharon Stone Gets 'Shameless'
"I am extremely humbled and honored to be celebrated for my concern for humanity," Stone said during her acceptance speech at the university, where she was joined by her siblings and grandparents. "All of our actions, small and large, reflect us. When we don't tolerate, we become small."
The actress will morph back into movie-star mode when she reprises her Basic Instinct role as homicidal writer Catherine Tramell. Stone flies to London on April 18 to begin filming the sequel to the 1992 hit movie. "The script is just great," she says. "The film has a sensational cinematographer and a killer wardrobe." No pun intended.
Seal and Heidi Klum were the picture of a happy family as the expectant parents shopped with Klum's 10-month-old daughter Leni at Los Angeles's Fred Segal boutique recently. While Klum tried on vintage denim jackets and browsed for jewelry and Juicy Couture sweats, Seal trailed behind carrying a smiling Leni. "He bounced and danced to the music (in the store) to entertain her," says a fellow shopper. "You can tell he adores that baby."
Will & Grace star Debra Messing is laying to rest the rumors that her hit NBC show is moving its production from the West Coast to New York City. "We are staying in L.A.," she told us at a Gotham magazine party at the Beverly Hills restaurant Maple Drive. "My family is back east and I would love for my son (Roman, who turns 1 April 7) to be able to see them more, but he's so little right now that we can take our time."
But make no mistake: Messing loves the Big Apple. She got her master's in fine arts at New York University, where she also met her husband, Daniel Zelman. "It's the city itself. It's the energy. There's something in me that comes alive when I enter New York. It's a really magnetic thing. I keep expecting the romance to wane, but it hasn't yet. I think I'm smitten."
