As Harvey Weinstein was closing the distribution deal for "Lovelace" at this year's Sundance Film Festival, he was asked by one of the film's representatives whether he would be doing awards campaigns for three of the film's stars, Amanda Seyfried (who plays Linda Lovelace), Peter Sarsgaard (who plays her husband, Chick Traynor) and Sharon Stone (who plays Linda's mother, Dorothy Boreman). What? Sharon Stone is in the movie? Weinstein asked, incredulous. I had no idea.  Stone and Seyfried swear the story is true, and Stone takes it as the ultimate acting compliment.

Perhaps at some point it will again be possible to write the name Woody Allen and go from there. But after a year marked by artistic highs and controversial lows for the filmmaker, it seems impossible. To address the elephant in the room, all you'll find on the docket today is a look at "Fading Gigolo," an amusing indie film that includes some of Allen's finest work as an actor in years. Written and directed not by Allen but John Turturro, "Fading Gigolo" is something of a tart meditation on romance and morality through the prism of the oldest profession.

I found it ironic that we were being inundated with Oscar rhetoric about honoring women in film. There were speeches, film clips, even an overblown number supposedly proving how far we women have come in Hollywood. I kept my TV tuned to ABC and witnessed Sharon Stone concerning her infamous scene in a revealing skirt sans underwear. When she explained how the director had deceived her to get that shot, I was outraged. Stone was sexually assaulted with a camera. When the film is shown, she is violated again.

Joining the ranks of those whose home prices were pummeled during the housing bust is Sharon Stone. The actress just sold her palatial place in the 90210 ZIP Code for 40% less than she paid for it. The "Basic Instinct" star bought the secluded five acres in 2006 for $10.995 million, then spent much of the last six years with the contemporary Mediterranean on the market for sale or lease until she unloaded it this week for $6.575 million. Among other celebrities hacking away at their asking prices are Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, whose Malibu beach house is now listed at $9.95 million - nearly 33% less than it was last summer.

Outside the U.S., Cuevas is a major music star thanks to his 17 years as the frontman of one of the most well-known alternative rock bands in Spanish, La Ley (The Law). "I fell in love with L.A. from the first time I went there with La Ley in 1993," says Cuevas by phone from Mexico City before catching a plane to head back to California, where he's lived since 2002.

Sharon Stone is taking on two very different roles — one in a Linda Lovelace biopic, and another on the Web to welcome returning troops. The 53-year-old actress says she will play Lovelace's mother in "Lovelace. " But before filming starts, the "Basic Instinct" star has another mission: She's taking her first steps into the world of social media with a Facebook page that welcomes returning military personnel home from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Stone says her We Welcome Home Our Troops page will serve as a community bulletin board where people can thank the troops for their service as well as offer them jobs, discounts, a helping hand and a warm welcome.
