Sharon Stone opened up about facing sexual harassment during the early days of her Hollywood career.
The 65-year-old veteran actress appeared on Kelly Ripa’s SiriusXM podcast ‘Let’s Talk Off Camera’, the actress claimed that she was sexually harassed by a former executive at Sony during meeting at the company’s offices in the 1980s.
Stone did not reveal the name of the executive as she revealed that the incident happened some time after she moved to Los Angeles.
“I’d been here, like, a couple of years, and I wore my best outfit… and I still remember so clearly because when you’re young you have just your one good outfit,” she told Ripa, 53.
She added that she was excited to meet the head of Sony, who apparently cannot stop praising Stone. The actress claimed that he kept on saying, “‘Oh, it’s true what they say about you’… ‘We haven’t seen anyone like you in decades’… ‘You’re the most gorgeous’,” she recalls.
Stone added that the executive walked up to her and said, “But first…’ and he took his penis right out in my face.”
The ‘Basic Instinct’ star recalled that she started laughing and crying at the same time, as she was too young and quite a bubbly person, and she became hysterical. Her reaction put him off, so “he put it away and he went through this door behind his desk.”
The star added that the incident was not last of many similar weird experiences in her career.
