Sharon Stone

I was her choice

Sharon Stone fumes over being dropped out of the Lana Turner biopic

Actress Sharon Stone is still smarting because Catherine Zeta-Jones was chosen over her to appear in a biopic of Lana Turner, insisting the silver screen star wanted her in the role.

Stone met the Peyton Place actress before her death from throat cancer in 1995 and was desperate to play her in forthcoming film Stompanato, which tells the story of Turner's tumultuous relationship with gangster Johnny Stompanato, who was killed by her daughter Cheryl in 1958.

Last year, it was announced film-maker Adrian Lyne had cast Zeta-Jones and Keanu Reeves in the movie, much to the horror of Stone. Stone says, “You can know your job, but it seems you have to be the flavour-of-the-week.”

“I met Lana in her final years and liked her a great deal. She said if there was to be a film made of her life, I was her choice.”

In other news the Hollywood beauty is glad to be single, after enduring countless relationships with “unbalanced” ex-boyfriends.

The Broken Flowers actress, 47, has been married and divorced three times, to Phil Bronstein, Michael Greenberg and George Englund Jr.  Stone admits she tends to be romantically involved with troubled men and likens the male sex to “dogs”. She says, “All the exes in my life either had an offbeat mother or underwent some kind of childhood crisis. They were unbalanced, looking for parental guidance and they see me as the mother figure.  “I think all men are dogs. I honestly do. You know every man starts barking sooner or later.

“At least my character in Basic Instinct has the good sense to kill men afterwards, so they won't go around sprouting nonsense.”
