Sharon Stone is hitting back at court documents that claim she wanted her son to receive Botox treatments for his "foot odor."
"This week it was reported in connection with Sharon Stone's custody dispute that she wanted to have her young 8 year-old son undergo Botox treatment at this time for his feet. Sharon Stone never made this statement. It is a complete fabrication," her attorney Martin Singer tells ET.
"Sharon loves her son Roan and only wants the best for him," Singer added.

Daniel Craig has demanded round-the-clock protection when he appears in a play in New York, it has been claimed. The James Bond star is said to have told producers he needs a bodyguard on call as he prepares for his Broadway debut in A Steady Rain. But his request was rejected - because co-star Hugh Jackman has not asked for any security. The Hollywood actors play Chicago cops whose friendship is put to the test in the stage drama. Craig, 41, sports a large moustache for the role. One insider revealed: "Everybody thinks it's funny because the truth is, Daniel rarely gets approached by the public in the street and at restaurants - especially now that he has the huge handlebar moustache." A Broadway insider said: "Security and secrecy around the show are so tight that Jackman and Craig are rehearsing at a secret location outside the city." Craig has reportedly rented a $38,000-a-month apartment for his stint in the play. A representative for Craig was unavailable for comment. A Steady Rain, by Keith Huff, begins previews next week and opens on September 29 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater. It runs until December 6.

NEW YORK (AP) — No name on the marquee was more pleasing to theater owners in 2008 than Will Smith, according to a survey of movie exhibitors.
Smith, star of "Hancock" and "Seven Pounds," was voted the star who generated the most box office revenue for theaters in an annual survey by Quigley Publishing Co.
Smith is only the second black actor to be chosen in the Quigley poll, which since 1932 has asked movie exhibitors to vote on the 10 stars who brought in the most business. Sidney Poitier topped the poll in 1968.
Smith's superhero summer blockbuster, "Hancock," grossed $228 million. "Seven Pounds," currently in theaters, has pulled in a somewhat lackluster $39 million in two weeks.
Following Smith, in order, were Robert Downey Jr. ("Iron Man," ''Tropic Thunder"), Christian Bale ("The Dark Knight"), Shia LaBeouf ("Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull") and LaBeouf's "Indiana Jones" co-star Harrison Ford.
The top 10 were rounded out by Adam Sandler, Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and Daniel Craig.
Last year's winner, Johnny Depp, who didn't have a film released this year, didn't make this year's poll, nor did seven-time winner Tom Cruise.
Anne Hathaway ("Rachel Getting Married") was voted the top "star of tomorrow" along with Chris Pine of "Bottle Shock."

"It has been six years since Faye Wong held her last tour show in 2003. The fans are really looking forward to her concert," a source surname Yu was quoted as saying.
Organizers in more than ten cities are making offers, Chen said. She also confirmed she is negotiating with CCTV on Wong's performance at its highly-rated Spring Festival Gala.
A crew member of the gala told the newspaper Wong will appear on their stage only if they offer the right song, and so they are looking out for "a good song that has the potential to be popular."

Actress Erika Sawajiri, 22, told reporters outside her Setagaya home on Wednesday that she and hypermedia creator Tsuyoshi Takashiro, 44, will get married at Meiji Shrine on Jan 19. Sawajiri came out to the front of her house around noon wearing sunglasses, oozing the “Erika-sama” image she has become famous for, but was sincere and fielded questions for 15 minutes, and showed off the ring Takashiro designed for her.
She elaborated on how Takashiro proposed to her, saying it was in August last year when they were viewing a total solar eclipse in the mountains of the Altai Republic in Russia. She said: “I went to Turkey to see the solar eclipse with him and a couple of other friends, when I was 19 and we weren’t a couple yet. That was our first vacation together, so being proposed to under an eclipse was very special for me. We’re going to see another one in July from Amami Island in Kagoshima.”
When asked why they decided on a Japanese-style ceremony for the wedding, Sawajiri said: “Well, we are Japanese. And I want to wear a kimono. It won’t be pure white though.” On the reception which will be held in Hawaii, she said: “A stylist friend of mine is designing the dress for me. It won’t be all white; it will have roses on it as well.”
Asked about her attraction to Takashiro, she said: “He’s very much an adult and I’m a bit of a brat, but I don’t feel the age difference. He’s very open-minded and I feel comfortable when I’m with him.”
Sawajiri returned from London on Dec 29 and said she went to the graves of her father who passed away when she was in junior high school and her brother who died in a car accident when she was in high school, and informed them of her upcoming marriage.
She also said she will travel to Barcelona in late January to study graphic design for six months, and will resume acting work after summer.

Anne said that about her getting marry will probably be in a long time, it will depend on the right timing, she's not hurrying it. She's also not afraid of getting marry, but she will not neglect it because mirrage is a big decision that will have to take time and get to know one another.As for my love life right now, it's good ka. I'm still not thinking about getting marry yet ka because I want to fully use the knowledge that I have learned and use it in the entertainment works. I think that about 35-36 I'd be able to get marry. The reason that a lot of people have ask me about this might be because all of my friend had all gotten married. The reason that I'm not marry is not because I'm afraid of mirrage life, but it that's I'm not ready yet and right now I have a lot of work I have to do ka
