Ruby Rose Recalls Emergency Surgery After Batwoman Stunt Left Her Close to Paralyzed. Playing a superhero seems like the ultimate job, but Ruby Rose says that there's a lot more to the role than meets the eye. For the CW's latest action show Batwoman, the actress stars as the titular hero -- and revealed filming was more physically demanding than she ever imagined. "I did a stunt, and for, like, a very extended amount of time, like, seven hours," she recalled on Monday night's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "We thought that I had broke a rib or just fractured a rib and that it was, like, 6 to 12 weeks of healing. So, then I had 6 to 12 weeks of chronic pain and just sort of kept assuming that was what it was." Finally, a doctor explained that the pain she was experiencing was actually coming from her neck and that her injuries were more severe than she had realized. Later, an MRI revealed that she had two herniated discs in her spine and that she could become paraplegic if her injury wasn't treated immediately. "It was really, really terrifying," explaining that her spine was on the verge of severing at any moment. "Even just, like, sleeping wrong, or you know, moving my head in a strange direction." The Orange is the New Black star says that she ignored the signs that her health was in jeopardy, listing "weird things" like losing mobility in her arms and not being able to pick things up as symptoms she experienced. She finally got surgery on her spine and said that she was back to work 10 days after the procedure. Rose explained that the recovery process wasn't easy and that it left her feeling "depressed," but looks back at this challenging time with a new mindset because of how it helped her appreciate her health. "I wasn't paying attention to my body," she said. "I wasn't listening. I was in such a hurry to get things done. It was like, 'Batwoman, yes! And, now I'm going to do this film. I'm going to come back, we're going to pick up the series... ' I think [the injury] was the world's way of saying, 'You're going to have to pay attention and you're gonna have to slow down -- and you're not actually a superhero." (Eonline)

The tattoo artist responsible for inking up almost the entire side of Aaron Carter's face claims he tried to talk him out of it, but the singer insisted ... and he actually wanted more. Herchell Carrasco -- known as RockRollG -- tells TMZ ... he booked a tat session with Carter at his home Friday for $3k, but nothing really went according to plan. Herchell says he thought he was going to be adding more art to Aaron's torso -- there was no talk of a face tattoo -- but once Carter got the idea for Medusa ... everything snowballed. Carrasco tells us Aaron knew he had experience doing face tattoos -- including some on Tekashi 6ix9ine's forehead shortly before he was arrested -- so Aaron got revved up for him to tat up his mug too ... RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE. Herchell says he and Aaron settled for the side of the face, and he even tried to talk him out of that ... but he says Carter knew what he wanted and ultimately, it's up to the client what they want to do. Carrasco adds, "Before I tattoo anyone, I take into consideration their mental state ... in Aaron's case, I assessed the situation and I genuinely felt he was in a good place mentally to get tattooed." We're told they initially used Rihanna's 2013 Medusa-inspired cover photo for GQ magazine as a guide for a stencil drawing, but then Aaron wanted the pic as his actual tattoo ... so Carrasco reluctantly obliged. He tells us he did the large tattoo but Aaron wasn't satisfied -- he also wanted "Love" inked under his eye ... because he told Carrasco that's his brand right now. After Herchell added a crescent moon tattoo on the other side of Aaron's face, he tells us he told Aaron he was done for the day. He says, "[Carter] wanted to keep going and I had to stop him. I couldn't cover his whole face in a tattoo. I just couldn't." The good news -- for Carrasco -- he tells us Aaron ended up paying him $5k ... so a whopping 2 grand more than they agreed upon. Also, he knows what people are thinking, and says Carter was only smoking cigarettes and weed throughout the day ... he didn't see him using any other drugs. He says he was in a good state of mind the whole time, and as we reported ... Aaron looks like he's having fun with his fresh face of art. (TMZ)

Actress Sienna Miller says fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein reduced her to tears when she was a young star -- lecturing her about her partying before slamming a door in her face, according to a new interview. "He called me in to his office -- he had just bought [2006's Factory Girl]," the British actor told Elle UK, referencing the biographical film on 1960s socialite Edie Sedgwick in which Miller played the titular role. "He sat me down, stood up, and said, 'You're not partying anymore,'" Miller continued, according to the UK Independent. Miller likened the encounter to a father lecturing his daughter. "It felt like a paternal lecture," she said. "He slammed the door and I burst into tears." The Miramax co-founder, 67, has been accused of sexually harassing dozens of women over decades as one of the most powerful men in Hollywood -- his case sparking the #MeToo movement. Weinstein is set to stand trial in Manhattan Supreme Court in Jan. on rape charges -- he has denied all the allegations against him. Miller, 37, endorsed the #MeToo movement, telling Elle: "Women have been undermined and undervalued." "That this is happening is essential," the New York-born actress said. (Page Six)

At one point, Stacey accuses Marty of faking his injuries, claiming he was taking photos of scratches on his arms ... scratches she didn't inflict. Dash also tells the dispatcher Marty is an attorney so he knows exactly what to tell his "awful children" to say to the police.
