It used to irritate me to no end when I'd hear people saying that Hollywood celebrities should keep their political and world views to themselves. After all, they're regular people, too...under all the makeup, lighting, Botox, sex tapes, assistants and money. They have an opinion and the right to share it with whomever they choose. I would further lecture those who wish to silence the celebs, but Sharon Stone has basically ice-picked my position to death. Ms. Stone somehow managed to recast herself as some kind of Magic 8-Ball, dispensing absurd answers to a question only Mother Nature can explain. Maybe her massive brain fart resulted from an unusual case of too-tight panties cutting off the circulation to her brain? Perhaps that's a bad explanation; we've all seen Basic Instinct.
From deities to entire countries, Sharon Stone can't seem to stop pissing people off. Her recent comments intimating that the Chinese government's "bad karma" may have resulted in the catastrophic earthquakes that have recently plagued the region angered a lot of people. Now those comments seem to have gotten her uninvited to some of the few places she's still welcome: Foreign film festivals. A spokesman for the Shanghai Film Festival, a place where just last year Stone sashayed down the red carpet (in a supremely fugly misshapen dress, I might add), sent the 50 year-old actress an angry letter demanding an apology and letting her know that she would not be welcome back anytime soon.
