Veteran Hollywood actress, Sharon Stone has come out to explain why she’s considered to be a “difficult” person in Hollywood.
The Oscar nominee who rose to fame with her role on Basic Instincts in 1992, says she believes her push for gender equality in the entertainment industry has made people perceive her as a ”difficult’ and ‘challenging” person.
Speaking to WSJ Magazine, Stone, 63, said;
“I think that when I was saying all these things — that now Kamala Harris, our fabulous vice president, and Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton are now avidly discussing — about women’s rights, [it] made my film career quite difficult,” said Stone.
“People found me to be ‘difficult’ because I was asking for those things and expecting to get those things that I felt were correct and appropriate for myself and other women,” recalled the “Basic Instinct” star.
Stone believes her stance “hurt” both her and her “standing with colleagues in the business.”
Now anxious to see gender equality “becoming the standard fare,” the Emmy-winning actress wondered whether, will she “be accepted back into my film community because I had that great thing that President Obama talked about, which was audacity?
“I was willing to bash my own head on the glass ceiling,” Stone continued.
“I’m going to have to see if this wounded warrior can be accepted back into her industry or if I will have to move along somewhere else.”
