Sharon Stone Talks Fliping 'Man-Heavy' Scripts With Stephen Colbert!

Sharon Stone stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (January 18) to promote her upcoming limited HBO series, Mosaic!

The 59-year-old actress also talks with Stephen about her firm belief that some ‘man-heavy’ scripts could afford to flip the gender of a character or two.

“Yeah, sometimes I’ll read a script and there’s just no women in it and I’ll say, ‘this is a pretty man heavy movie’,” Sharon told Stephen. “I usually see a part or two in there that I think that I could play so will you call the producers and see if someone will see me for this part or that part.”

“I think as my career went on we fought, my manger Chuck at the time, to get paid, which was a big battle,” Sharon added about things she’s had to overcome. “I had to decide if I was willing to work to not get paid.”

    Yeah, I guess Goodfellas could flip the gender of a character or two and still make sense. De Niro’s character could be a mobster woman.
