She shared that it became traumatic for her as she lost her child’s custody in her divorce because the judge believed that she was making “sex movies”. Sharon Stone went on to say that the quality of her work wasn’t recognised until about 20 years later.

Well, TBH, it’s sad that female actors are stereotyped and judged for the work that they do and sadly, that’s not something that happened in the past. It’s something that still happens to actors across the globe and it’s time we put an end to it.
