Sharon Stone Rants About Oscar-Winner Meryl Streep’s Hollywood Status

No hate between each other though.

Sharon Stone has shared her thoughts on the ‘iconography’ associated with Meryl Streep, and she has been the talk of the town on Twitter because of it.

Sharon Stone, 63, shared her thoughts on Meryl Streep’s presence in the film industry during an interview last month, and she has been doing the rounds on Twitter because of the statement.

Sharon Stone interrupted the interviewer when she was asked a question about being able to ‘finally’ work with Meryl Streep for the 2019 movie “The Laundromat”-

“I like the way you phrase that, that I finally got to work with Meryl Streep. You didn’t say, ‘Meryl finally got to work with Sharon Stone.’ Or we finally got to work together.”

“Because that’s the way her life went, she got built up to be, ‘Everyone wants to work with Meryl’, I wonder if she likes that?”

Stone further added-

“The way you structured the question is very much the answer to the question. The business was set up that we should all envy and admire Meryl because only Meryl got to be the good one. And everyone should compete against Meryl.”

Sharon Stone made it clear that she does not have anything against Meryl Streep, and further commented that there are other actors as good as Streep-

“I think Meryl is an amazingly wonderful woman and actress. But in my opinion, quite frankly, there are other actresses equally as talented as Meryl Streep.”

“The whole Meryl Streep iconography is part of what Hollywood does to women.”

Stone then named the actors that she believes are just as good as Streep-

Viola Davis is every bit the actress Meryl Streep is, Emma Thompson, Judy Davis, Olivia Colman, Kate Winslet, for f***’s sake. But you say Meryl and everybody falls on the floor.”

Just to finish it off, Stone adds that she is a ‘much better villain’ than Streep-

“Meryl was not gonna be good in ‘Basic Instinct’ or in ‘Casino’. I would be better. And I know it. And she knows it. But we’re all set up to think that only Meryl is so amazing that when you say her name it must have been amazing for me to work with her.”

People on twitter gave their opinions on Sharon Stone’s statement, some were in support of her, and some just thought she was being petty-
