Sharon Stone says some pretty inflammatory things at the Cannes Film Festival about the recent quake in China.
At the heart of the row is an interview Stone gave to a TV reporter. "I am not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans," she said, when asked about her Buddhist faith. "Then I have been concerned about 'how shall we deal with the Olympics?' because they are not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who is a good friend of mine. And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened and I thought, 'Is that karma, when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?'"
Gee, Sharon? Why didn't they just out-walk that
She continued to comment on how when she received the Tibetan Foundation's request to send aid to China, that she cried.
"Sometimes you have to learn to put your head down and be of service, even to people who aren't nice to you. That's a big lesson for me," Stone said. [Source here.]
You know it's classy when she's making the comment to Cable Entertainment Hong Kong on the red carpet and that she was also a guest at the Shanghai International Film Festival last year.
Anyways, this is prompting a boycott in China. But that's not all!
"Ng See-Yuen, founder of the UME Cineplex chain and the chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers, said that actors should not bring personal politics to comments about a natural disaster that has left 5 million Chinese homeless.
UME has branches in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Hangzhou and Guangzhou, China's biggest urban movie markets.
Of course, that wasn't the only controversy Stone got in on last Thursday, one golden highlight being when she sat on Sean Comb's lap at the AmFAR benefit and tried to get him to bid 300,000 Euros, then commented "Come on, you spend more on crack."
