  - Sharon Stone In Line To Land Lana Turner Film Role -
 
2
SHARON STONE has been pencilled in to star as Hollywood legend LANA TURNER in a biopic about the American mobster JOHNNY STAMPANATO.

The sultry BASIC INSTINCT actress is an "ardent fan" of the THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE star, who died five years ago. Turner had a tumultuous private life including a violent relationship with Stampanato which ended in 1959 when her 13-year- old daughter Cheryl Crane stabbed him to death in a fit of rage. She went on to marry a total of eight times.

A source close to the movie says, "Sharon is totally fascinated by Lana's life and career." (CPT/WNWCAN/RP)
   
  - Jackie Chan Was Almost Sold At Birth
 

Martial arts movie star JACKIE CHAN was almost sold as a baby - to pay for his mother's hospital bill.

The energetic RUSH HOUR actor was born to impoverished parents, who couldn't even pay for the medical care his birth required. Chan says, "The British doctor told my father 'I'll give you 200 US (dollars) but then you walk away and I have the child.' "My father said OK but family and friends managed to find the money."

  -  Kylie Minogue Loses Her Tongue In Horror Movie -
 
KYLIE MINOGUE is to have her tongue cut out and be left to die - in a gruesome horror movie.

The pint-sized singer and actress plays a student film-maker in new Australian film CUT - which will be released straight to video next month (FEB01) - and, in a flashback scene, is attacked by her psychotic boyfriend in true slasher style. Minogue recalls, "I was doing the screams and muffled noises and looking at my tongue lying on the table.

The next day I went to my singing coach. We were doing warm-up exercises and my coach said 'It's really strange, your tongue isn't doing what it's meant to do.' "I realised that the day before I'd been watching my tongue being pulled out. My brain must have absorbed this and thought my tongue wasn't there anymore, and stopped me being able to use it properly." (NMD/HET/KW)
   
  -Julia Roberts Wants Role To Flirt -
   
JULIA ROBERTS only signed on to star in OCEAN's ELEVEN so she could flirt with her hunky male co-stars.

The ERIN BROCKOVICH star will join BRAD PITT, GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON and CASEY AFFLECK for the high profile movie, which will be directed by her pal STEVEN SODERBERGH.

She says, "I'm just looking for a good time in Vegas. I was furious Steven didn't put me in TRAFFIC, so I think he threw me a little mercy friendship bone with Ocean's Eleven. "He said to me, `You're the only girl, you'll like it'." The film starts shooting later this month (JAN01). (MB/WN/KW)
 
  - Tom Hanks Near Death On Set -
22
Hollywood star RENEE ZELLWEGER has tragedy in her past - the senseless suicide of a boyfriend, who killed himself as she fought her way to fame.

The beautiful JERRY McGUIRE star first met SIMS ELLISON at a bar in Austin, Texas, America, while she was at university studying English and acting. Renee soon moved to Hollywood, California, to pursue her dream, and Sims, battling depression over the break-up of his band PARIAH and the loss of his love, shot himself in June 1995 - aged just 28.

A former friend of the star's says, "They were perfect together, like a married couple. After Renee moved to Los Angeles, Sims reached out to her from time to time in an attempt to reconcile but it wasn't the same. "By the summer of 1995, he couldn't take it anymore." Heartbroken Renee rushed back to her home town of Katy, Texas to mourn her lost love, giving up her first feature film role - but within a year she was back in Hollywood, starring in MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK.
