Sharon Stone Must Die...
I have often had that thought while watching her act. For one reason or another I have never been able to stand her in just about any role that she has played, nor have I been able to listen to her speak out on any issue through the news or gossip rags.
Sharon Stone got her big break by uncrossing her legs. Sure some people may argue with me that this might not be the case, but can you remember her before she made a public viewing of her coochie possible in 1992? Do you remember her in the Steve Guttenberg lead Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol? Or how about when she was in Action Jackson? Least we forget her stirring turn as Sara Toscani in Steven Seagal's Above the Law.
Basic Instinct was her last big chance to make some coin in acting and she threw all of her cards on the table, gambled and won! But let's not make such a feminine hero out of someone who cracked into the business by showing her roast beef lips.
She has since been in countless bad movies. She did make a blip in the radar when she was nominated for an Emmy for her role in Casino, but for the most part more bad movies.
Beyond her stirring acting resume, she has been known to spit wisdom upon us on how she feels, mainly about feminine issues. Far be it for me to stop any woman from getting his or her fair share of this thing we call life, but should someone who got famous for getting naked really be leading the charge? Doesnt that seem hypocritical? Or maybe it is just ironic.
More recently she has been known for her husband's foot getting attacked while he had a special privilege to view a Komodo Dragon up close, in it's cage at the Los Angeles Zoo. Prior to that Sharon Stone stole her husband, Phil Bronstein, editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, from his then wife. Im sure Im not the only one who chuckled when I first heard of this Komodo Dragon attack. And Im sure Im not the only one who felt justified in his laughter. I may have even hoped that the foot would fall off, but I might just be making that up for this story. I must say though, that my insensitivity is not directed at her husband - I truly wish that he has gotten better from his attack and would never wish such an attack on a human - no, I feel justified in my laughter because of my hatred for Sharon Stone.
So it has been quite some time (14 years to be exact) since Sharon Stone showed her vagina to the world for the first time and here she is, doing it again, in - what else - Basic Instinct 2. And from what I hear she is nuder and naughtier than before. Im sure I wont see it, hell, I havent seen the first yet, and I honestly dont care, since Sharon Stone must die.
Normally that would end this rant, but the story is not over, and I hope you are ready for this twist. I think I may be falling for Sharon Stone...
Yes, you heard it right. Ok, I admit, I dont want to fuck her or anything like that, but I have to admit that she is looking pretty good these days. And her acting is actually enjoyable. Did you see her in Broken Flowers? Well, maybe you didnt since her teenage daughter in that movie got completely naked and looked GOOD, but Sharon Stone pulled it off. And if you havent seen her in the latest episode of Huff you are truly missing out, she is hilarious, something I never thought I would say about Sharon Stone.
The odd thing, besides my complete change in stance on the issue of Sharon Stone, is that I think she may have taken an unnecessary risk by doing Basic Instinct 2 and being naughty all over again, especially since the movie has tanked. If she continues to act like she did in Broken Flowers and Huff, I will continue to watch her. I know, such blasphemy has never come out of mine lips.
