Looks like no one is safe when it comes to Sharon Stone – not even spiders! According to Ernest Borgnine, the Oscar-winning actor who costarred with Stone in 1981’s Deadly Blessing, Stone had a tarantula’s pincers removed before she would do a scene with the insect.
PETA is positively furious. Spokesperson Ingrid Newkirk said to the New York Post,
“She chose to make a tiny insect an amputee. Perhaps she should change her name legally to ‘Heart of Stone.’ “
Sharon Stone’s rep seems to think that the whole situation is pretty laughable, being quoted as saying,
“If the tarantula was a male, we could add him to her list of her extraordinary leading men…”
All this is following pretty hot on the heels of PETA’s offer earlier this month to have Sharon Stone’s brain scanned because of her supremely careless comments about the earthquakes in China.
If she didn’t take herself so seriously and her comments weren’t so cruel, some of her antics might be laughable. (Especially some of the outfits she’s worn.) But especially after reading the quote from Stone’s rep, you’ve got to wonder if everyone surrounding her is just a whole bucket of messed up.
