Sharon Stone, 58, made her cinematic reputation by flashing her pantiless crotch in the movie, Basic Instinct.
But Stone hasn’t had a big movie role — or any movie — in years.
On a recent day, this is what she chose to wear to the L.A. airport — a see-through top showing her breasts, dark areolae, and belly-button.
Stone rationalized her exhibitionism with a false choice — that the only alternatives for older women is either look dowdy or look like a slut. She said, “I don’t think we have to accept the assignment of aging, that all of a sudden you’re supposed to be dowdy, with a really bad hairdo and wear Easter candy-colored clothes.”
What’s truly offensive is that she draped a cross over her garb. She claims to be a Buddhist.
For many years, Stone claimed to have a genius-level IQ of 154 and to be a member of Mensa. But in April 2002, she admitted she had never been an actual member of Mensa. Jim Blackmore, Mensa’s national marketing director for America, said, “It’s delightful to finally see Ms. Stone admit that she’s not and never has been a member of our society. But then she goes on to say, ‘I went to a Mensa school.’ Not so.” Blackmore is certain Stone didn’t attend the school, because no such institution has existed since the early 1960s.
