Sharon Stone, 61, on embracing her age and why she thinks 'Basic Instinct’ wouldn’t be made today

Fox News Flash top entertainment headlines for Oct. 21

Fox News Flash top entertainment and celebrity headlines for Oct. 21 are here. Check out what’s clicking today in entertainment.

Sharon Stone is opening up about the body-shaming she faced early on in her career and how she's embracing her age today.

As with many women living in the spotlight, Stone, 61, found herself the constant subject of criticism when it came to her body.

"When I was younger, everybody was telling me what was wrong with my body — too this, too that," Stone told Allure for the magazine's October issue, which she graces the cover of.

CHER CALLS TRUMP A 'WH—,' SAYS PELOSI 'COULD KICK HIS MAMMOTH A–'

She continued: "When I got on ‘Basic Instinct,’ they hired a makeup artist that put on pounds of makeup every day, and every day I went to my trailer and took the makeup off. But I wasn’t allowed to choose my makeup artist, nor was my name [above the title] on the poster.”

Eventually, Stone "started to understand that I was going to go for being more like a European woman who got more beautiful with age and who could understand that women are more beautiful than girls because they know something."

Stone also revealed that her favorite part of her life was her 40s because she could focus on her family.

“I couldn’t work because women, once they got to be 40, were not given jobs in Hollywood. I was a mom with three beautiful little boys," she explained. “I was recovering from a massive brain injury, and I was in custody court constantly over my oldest child.”

“It was my period of the biggest change, but the period where I thought I was the most beautiful," she added.

Another reveal from the story: Stone doesn't think that "Basic Instinct," her biggest hit, could have been made today.

“I think ‘Basic Instinct’ was made at the exact right moment in history because it captured all our fears and doubts and the moment of change of power for women,” she said. “I doubt that it would have any form of the sensationalism it had at the time.”

Stone most recently appeared in Netflix's "The Laundromat," and is set to star in "Ratched," also a Netflix property.

TMZ’s Van Lathan fired after newsroom spat with Michael Babcock

If only TMZ had been there to film it!

Page Six is told that veteran TMZ personality Van Lathan has been fired after getting into a nasty confrontation with fellow star, Michael Babcock.

We’re told that the pair appeared on the site’s online show “TMZ Live” together about a week and a half ago and had some kind of disagreement. The on-air face-off has been edited out, we’re told, but sources say they were sparring over politics, which has increasingly come between them. Lathan famously went head-to-head with Kanye West last year over the rapper’s claims that slavery was “a choice.” Meanwhile, we’re told Babcock leans to the right.

Sources say that Lathan confronted Babcock in the newsroom after the segment and told him there would be trouble if he “ever embarrassed [Lathan] like that again.” Insiders say Lathan met with the site’s attorneys and he was suspended. He was dismissed a few days later, we’re told.

An insider defended Lathan — who also hosts the “Red Pill” podcast — saying that in the site’s high-pressure newsroom, staffers are often pitted against each other for the sake of making good TV. “Van’s not mean-spirited. Anything that happened is a product of that environment,” said an insider.

Sources also said that Lathan had been “a huge part” of the success of TMZ over the past few years and they were stunned he had been fired over the incident.

When reached for comment, Lathan declined to comment without speaking to an attorney, Babcock hung up on us, and TMZ didn’t get back to us.

For the royals, it’s starting to feel like another annus horribilis

It is starting to feel like another annus horribilis for the monarchy. First we had the allegations surrounding Prince Andrew's friendship with Jeffrey Epstein. Then the Queen was dragged into a constitutional crisis over Brexit. And now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have given a television interview that feels on a par with Diana, Princess of Wales's explosive sit-down with the BBC current affairs flagship Panorama in 1995.

By appearing to suggest she can no longer continue in the royal family as it stands, the Duchess seems to be not only casting aspersions on the tabloids, but also the Firm she married into.

Her revelation to interviewer Tom Bradby that: "Not many people have asked if I'm OK," appears to hint at a lack of support among her royal relatives – echoing the criticisms Diana made to Martin Bashir in 1995 of being isolated and misunderstood.

Sources close to the Sussexes have told me that the couple feel like they are "completely on their own", which is perhaps why they have felt able in this emotional outpouring to justify breaking with the Queen's mantra: "Never explain, never complain."

As when Diana and the Prince of Wales were having marriage problems, the suggestion seems to be that no one has taken the Sussexes aside to help them deal with criticism from the press, let alone the mental anguish they claim it has caused.

Which begs the question: have the couple been receiving poor advice, or ignoring good advice? Since they did not appear to consult their advisers or closest family before, on the final day of their tour of Africa, releasing a statement attacking the press, perhaps we can deduce that it is a bit of both.

The Duke's admission that "stuff" has happened between him and his brother, who he reveals he no longer sees as much of, also bears witness to the notion that the Sussexes are increasingly operating in a silo. The Duke used to rely on brotherly advice. Since marriage, like most husbands, he now listens to his wife. Yet unlike William, Harry clearly has not fully come to terms with his mother's death, admitting his mental health needs "constant management".

Declaring that he "will not be bullied into playing the game that killed my Mum", he confirms that he does still blame the media for what happened on August 31, 1997. Many will sympathise. Others will conclude, as did the inquest, that a combination of a drunk driver and marauding paparazzi were to blame. The Duke also appears to have forgotten that at times both of his parents were willing participants in the "game" he describes.

But this was not an interview that sought to give both sides of the story. In insisting he will protect his family at all costs – backed up by the Duchess saying she will not adopt the "British stiff upper lip" – the Sussexes appear to be saying something deeper about their role. They are no longer willing to put up and shut up, which could prove problematic for a family that has traditionally kept calm and carried on.

The Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge faced a relentless media backlash at first. Both rose above. Of course there is a big difference between unfair headlines and untrue ones. But this programme did not make any clearer which stories the Sussexes were objecting to and why. Some people will be scratching their heads at the Duchess's suggestion that she and her husband don't want to be seen as a "mixed race couple", but a love story. If that is the case, why does she keep bringing race into it, as when she spoke of being a "woman of colour" in South Africa? Hardly anyone else mentions it.

No one expects them to "just exist". The public wants them to "thrive and be happy". But the reaction to this programme will inevitably be divided between those who think people in positions of great power and privilege should follow the Queen's example – and those who favour Diana's.

Mom who ‘gloated’ about SAT cheating pleads guilty in college admissions scandal

Four more parents pleaded guilty Friday to paying bribes to get their kids into top schools as part of the college admissions scandal — including a mom who allegedly “gloated” with her daughter after the girl was fed answers to the SATs.

Elizabeth Henriquez and her Silicon Valley honcho hubby, Manuel Henriquez, pleaded guilty in Boston federal court to money laundering and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud charges for paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to William “Rick” Singer.

The college prep expert helped their two daughters cheat on their admissions tests — and also got their elder daughter, Isabelle, designated a fake athletic recruit to Georgetown University, prosecutors said.

Singer had a crooked test proctor sit “side-by-side” with Isabelle during her SATs to give her the answers, according to court documents.

Afterward, the proctor “ ‘gloated’ with Elizabeth Henriquez and her daughter about the fact that they had cheated and gotten away with it,” a criminal complaint reads.

Manuel resigned from his Silicon Valley firm, Hercules Capital, after his involvement in the scheme became public.

Fantasy football sizzlers, fizzlers: No one can keep up with Marvin Jones

These players saw their fantasy values increase or decrease most based on their performances in Week 7:

Sizzlers

QB Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers: Playing without star receiver Davante Adams for a third consecutive week, Rodgers spread his 429 passing yards among eight different receivers — throwing for five touchdowns and running for another.

QB Jacoby Brissett, Indianapolis Colts: Brissett was efficient and unafraid to throw the ball in the red zone, which resulted in season highs of 326 yards and four touchdown passes.

WR Marvin Jones, Detroit Lions: Jones seems to have one "blow-up" game like this every season, but it doesn't usually come with four touchdown catches. With the Lions in catch-up mode, the targets (13) were more plentiful than usual.

RB Chase Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals: It was a surprise when David Johnson was active and only had one carry. Edmonds definitely picked up the slack, rushing for 126 yards and three touchdowns. All three of the scores came from at least 20 yards out.

TE Darren Waller, Oakland Raiders: Waller is more a big wide receiver than a tight end, and he catches almost everything thrown his way. With Oakland's wide receivers struggling badly, Waller has been the only dependable option in the passing game.

Fizzlers

WR Will Fuller, Houston Texans: A significant hamstring injury cut Fuller's week short and may now cause him to miss several weeks. As a result, Kenny Stills becomes an interesting waiver wire target. 

TE Evan Engram, New York Giants: Engram had a quiet week, managing just one reception from five targets. The concern with Engram is that he just isn't utilized as much with Daniel Jones at quarterback as he was with Eli Manning.

RB David Montgomery, Chicago Bears: It was a bad afternoon for Montgomery as he only rushed twice for six yards and lost a fumble. Game flow may have been a contributing factor with the Bears trailing most of the game, but the rookie's involvement seems to be going in the wrong direction.

RB Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons: Freeman was ineffective against the Rams before being ejected for throwing a punch at Aaron Donald. The frustration in Atlanta is palpable as the entire offense is sputtering and quarterback Matt Ryan is dealing with an ankle injury.

WR Terry McLaurin, Washington Redskins: Maybe it was the steady rain or maybe interim coach Bill Callahan has a firm commitment to the run, but QB Case Keenum had just 12 pass attempts and McLaurin was held to one catch for 11 yards.

Outlander: What happened to Faith Fraser? Tragic backstory of Jamie and Claire’s baby

Outlander takes its cue from the novels by US author Diana Gabaldon, who has written a total of eight books to date. The Starz TV series has remained true to the source material on the whole with season five expected to be something of a departure from the one book per series rule. Writer Gabaldon is now working on her ninth book with reports she will be rounding off the Outlander series with a 10th instalment.

What happened to Faith Fraser?

Both season two of Outlander and its novel counterpart Dragonfly in Amber follow Claire Fraser’s (played by Caitriona Balfe) first pregnancy.

Claire fell pregnant with their child after believing she wouldn’t be able to conceive when she and her first husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) tried without much luck.

However, Claire realised she was fertile after finding herself with child and sharing the news with her delighted second husband Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).

Sadly, the pregnancy was a risky one for the 20th Century nurse who was trying to change the course of history and prevent the Jacobite Rising through court intrigue in 18th Century Paris.

Claire sadly lost her child after going into early labour as she raced to stop Jaime from duelling with Captain Jack Randall (also Menzies).

The nurse was rushed to the L’Hôpital des Anges where her baby was stillborn, leaving Claire devastated.

She named the baby girl Faith and the infant was buried by the nuns in the hospital’s cemetery.

Despite the death of the child, both Jamie and Claire never forgot their first daughter and have previously mentioned her.

Jamie and Claire went on to have another daughter Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton), who came back through the stones to be reunited with her parents.

The Highlander mentioned Brianna had red hair like her sister Faith after Claire showed him photos of their child in season three when the lovers were reunited.

Speaking about the inclusion of the line, actress Balfe told TV Line: “I was like, ‘Can we please put in just even the tiniest thing about Faith?’

“Because I think anyone who has lost a child or had a miscarriage or anything like that, it’s something they would never forget and that is still part of this family.”

Some fans recently asked at New York Comic-Con whether Faith could be turning up in the show or books going forward.

Gabaldon told the audience at the Starz panel: “As far as anybody knows, Faith died in Dragonfly In Amber and we haven’t seen any trace of her since. So I wouldn’t hold your breath.”

Balfe previously reflected on the stillbirth scenes, telling Variety in an interview in 2016: “So when I first got the script, I mean, I cried.

“I emailed [writer] Toni [Graphia] straight away, and I was just like, “This is so beautiful. You’ve made me cry like a baby.’

“I loved how Toni handled it. It was in such a respectful way, and such a beautiful way, and I think it’s such a defining moment in Claire’s life and for her character, that in a way, you just relish these moments as an actor to be able to go through this journey with the character.”

Outlander season 5 will premiere on Starz on February 16
