In the first season, viewers in front of small screens, in the hit series could watch the emotional relationship between the protagonist and her late father, while her mother Lisa is on the sidelines due to alcohol problems.
The sequel to the ‘The flight attendant’ series is being filmed in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Reykjavik, and the main character Cassie is living in Los Angeles in her second season where she is trying to stay sober doing jobs for the CIA. The first season of the series earned nine Emmy nominations, including Best Comedy and Best Leading Actress nominations.
Recall, Sharon Stone gained fame in theaters, and her role in the erotic thriller ‘Basic instinct’ from 1992 soared her to stardom. Even today, the popular actress attracts the attention of the public with her appearance. Almost none of her outings go unnoticed.
Photographers have been following her for years, and every time she stands in front of them, she enchants with her appearance. In a recent interview with WSJ, she revealed the secret of her youthful appearance and minimal changes from the time how she looked when she was at the height of her fame. She said some of her tricks include eating fruit for breakfast, swimming in the pool, sleeping for eight hours, exercising, and taking a bath in Dead Sea salt and in a plant called arnica.
“My favorite breakfast is watermelon with feta cheese and mint, with olive oil, salt, and pepper. In addition, I usually eat gluten-free sourdough toast and drink herbal tea. I haven’t exercised in decades, but that has changed,” Sharon revealed and added that she spends a lot of time in the pool of her Beverly Hills mansion.
Also earlier, Sharon revealed how she slapped director Paul Verhoeven after watching the film for the first time, given that she had no idea the camera recorded her naked crotch in the scene where she crossed her legs. She told Vanity Fair that she did not want to take off her underwear, but the director assured her that nothing would be seen on the screen. However, everything was revealed at the first screening of the film.
“That’s when I first saw the footage of my vagina, long after I was told, ‘We can’t see anything. We just want you to take off your panties because the white color reflects light, so we know you’re wearing them,‘” she explained at the time, adding how the situation further developed.
“I went to the projection table, slapped Paul in the face, left, got in the car, and called my lawyer Marty Singer, ” the actress pointed out.
In the end, however, she agreed to keep the scene in the film, although Verhoeven was in principle opposed to giving her any creative control over her own body in the famous thriller.
“I was just an actress, just a woman, what choice did I have? But I still had it. I thought for a long time and chose to allow that scene in the film. Why? Because it was right for the film itself and my character and after all, I did that, ” she explained.
By the way, in 2017, Verhoeven denied that Stone was unaware of what he had in mind when filming the cult scene.
“Sharon is lying. Every actress knows what she will see if you ask her to take off her underwear and expose herself in front of the camera,” the director claimed at the time.
