I've never been a big fan of Sharon Stone — I think Basic Instinct (1992) is crap and I've never really been on board with her acting style. In fact, my first big fight with my ex was over whether she could act! (I did like her a lot in 1990's Total Recall!)
But my hat is off to her for her remarkable recover from a stroke, and for this interview, in which she's asking about her #MeToo story ...
Stone, who is about to appear in HBO's Mosaic, a Steve Soderbergh production that allows viewers to interact with a mystery story, sat down with CBS Sunday Morning.
The embarrassingly timid interviewer (sorry, Lee Cowan, but you come off as mightily cowed) hems and haws as he delicately asks whether Stone had ever been made uncomfortable during her career, to which Stone offers a hearty stage laugh:
Her words are even funnier:
I've been in this business for 40 years, Lee. Can you imagine the business I stepped into 40 years ago? Lookin' like I look? From nowhere Pennsylvania — I didn't come here with any protection. I've seen it all.
Looking forward to trying Mosaic.
