Sharon Stone was profiled on CBS Sunday Morning this week, during which she had a long chat with anchor Lee Cowan about her career, her comeback, so to speak (she’s reportedly phenomenal in Steven Soderbergh’s new show Mosaic), and, of course, Hollywood’s shitty treatment of women.
When Cowan brings up Stone’s appearance at this year’s Golden Globes—she dressed in all black for the Time’s Up movement—things get a teensy bit awkward.
SHARON STONE: We’re starting to acknowledge our own gifts as women, and not think that we have to behave as men in order to be empowered or powerful or valuable.”
LEE COWAN: I don’t know how to ask this in a delicate way, but were you ever in a position like that? That you felt that you were uncomfortable.”
STONE: [laughs for a century]
COWAN: You’re laughing, but I don’t know if it’s a nervous laugh or a ‘are you kidding me of course I was’ laugh.
STONE: [inhales deeply] I’ve been in this business for 40 years, Lee. Can you imagine the business I stepped in 40 years ago? Looking like I look? From Nowhere, Pennsylvania? I didn’t come here with any protection. I’ve seen it all.
You’ll see plenty of sites write this up today, as it makes for a compelling headline and the clip itself is more than a little satisfying. But just in case you don’t end up watching beyond the laughter, allow me to share the moment Cowan proves he is as oblivious to the pervasive mistreatment and disrespect of women as, you know, most other middle-aged straight dudes are.
COWAN [NARRATING]: Her journey through the business started as you might expect: as a model. She had just what photographers were looking for, even if she thought she didn’t always fit in.
STONE: I always thought I had the worst body.
COWAN: Seriously? You did?
COWAN: How is that possible?
Good grief, my dude.
