Movie star Sharon Stone had to wear an extra-large fat suit to play a grieving mum in new movie Alpha Dog because she looked stunning in everything the director tried to put her in. Moviemaker Nick Cassavetes was desperate to capture the reallife weight problems SUSAN MARKOWITZ suffered as she attempted to cope with the death of her son at the hands of JESSE JAMES HOLLYWOOD, but Stone couldn't look rough if she tried. He explains, "The woman gained a bunch of weight... She had an extremely tough time with the events that happened, a really difficult time. "I remember when I was testing fat suits on Sharon, you put 40 pounds on her (and) she still looks like a glamourpuss. We had to really go and put it on her. She liked it. "She feels a certain comfort with all that stuff on her."
