Sharon Stone Dropped A Tidbit: Says She Will Be Working With Bette Midler

HLN
Sharon Stone: “Always known that I would become a star”
Annelies Roebben & Kristien Morato December 30, 2017

Shifting Sharon Stone as just “that actress from Basic Instinct” would be dishonoring her. After the now world-famous scene – in which she was not wearing panties when she crossed her legs – she became one of the best-paid actresses in Hollywood. Still, afterwards she got away with her image as a sex symbol without difficulty. Earlier this year she played a beautiful role in the film ‘Running Wild’, now she acts in the TV series ‘Mosaic’. Still on the schedule: a role as heroin dealer in the thriller ‘Sunny’ and a comedy with Bette Midler. No obvious choices, but Sharon is especially happy that she can still work. “A little over 16 years ago I had a stroke and a brain haemorrhage, which lasted nine days. An artery supplying the brain with blood had jumped, but they had not seen it in the hospital. I did not hear anything with my left ear, felt nothing in my left leg. I was blind to my one eye and sometimes I did not see anything with my other eye either. Then everything suddenly became black. I have had problems for years. I could not even write my name for three years. Because my arm did not listen to my brain. “ Read More

Sophie von Haselberg in New Film, Future 38

EW
Neil deGrasse Tyson approves of time travel comedy Future ’38 in exclusive trailer
By Clark Collis
November 20, 2017 AT 04:59 PM EST

In the comedy Future ’38, an American agent travels from the ’30s to 2018 to hamstring Hitler and discovers a strange world of connected computers and other futuristic phenomena. He also falls for a woman 80 years his junior.

“The film is a valentine to the classic screwball comedies of the 1930s and ’40s,” says writer-director Jamie Greenberg in his director’s statement. “It imagines a world that’s a magical hybrid of 1938 and the present: a vintage film transposed to our modern world.” Read More

When Out on Film released the roster for 2017’s festival, “Freak Show” was one of the films set to be screened at the festival on Oct. 5 at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. This brilliant movie is about boldly confident, eccentric gay teen Billy Bloom, raised by a fabulous (although alcoholic mother) played by Bette Midler. Billy is forced to move to a “red state” to live with his Southern father in a small town where Christ is king and girls are homecoming queens — that is, until Billy decides to run. Read More

BetteBack April 23, 1975: Vito Russo Interviews Bette Midler

The Advocate
Exclusive Bette Midler Interview
April 23, 1975
By Vito Russo

NEW YORK, NY: Don’t let all the recession-obsessed soothsayers fool you. People are still lining up to see a good show. At around midnight of the evening before tickets went on sale at the Minskoff Theatre for Bette Midler’s Clams on the Half Shell Revue, the line began to form for what turned out to be the largest single day ticket sale in Broadway history. The previous record had been set more than a year ago by Bette Midler at the Palace Theatre. Red Skelton said it when he was told that over 10,000 people had shown up at movie mogul Harry Cohen’s funeral: “Give the people something they want to see and they’ll come out for it.”At a time when people were selling apples on the street corners in Greenwich Village for $1.50 each, I’m convinced now that we do indeed need it now.
